Re: 2015-10-02 - Announcing Worthy of Survival
It's doable, but I probably won't be doing it. I actually covered that one in the FAQ.

And the Galactica?

No. You can't fly the Galactica. Wrong style of game. We'd rather concentrate on trying to make the best fighter game possible than try to do everything and spread ourselves too thin. There are other RTS mods and games who can do a much better job of that than we could.

Now I know that using lua it's easier to do that now than it used to be. And I know Blue Planet did a pretty good job of capship missions. But Blue Planet has no prior expectations to deal with. We've all watched BSG. I know we can give the player the feeling of flying a Viper and shooting down Cylons. But since we can't put you in C&C we can't capture the feeling of commanding a Battlestar. Certainly not better than other RTS mods can do.


Of course, I have no problem if someone else wants to give it a try.

Re: 2015-10-02 - Announcing Worthy of Survival
I think that is the right call.

I think that for such a game the starshatter engine would work a lot better, as it allows for planning missions from a carrier as well as warship to warship combat.

I wouldn't be surprised if such a mod existed already.

Well, seems like it, because Google just brought this up:

Slowly unfortunately. But it is still going. I'm hoping to have a lot more time to devote to FREDding over the next month though as I'm on holiday and not planning on actually going anywhere.

The good Christian should beware of mathematicians, and all those who make empty prophecies. The danger already exists that the mathematicians have made a covenant with the devil to darken the spirit and to confine man in the bonds of Hell.

We're planning a to release as a Star Citizen mod. Of course that means we have to wait for Star Citizen to be released first but in the meantime we've set up 10 different studios to work on the game.
