Babylon 5 Related Games & Mod Projects
Hey guys! :)

I’m looking to engage the various Babylon 5 communities to help me build an ever improving list of B5 related games out there. Plus I'm wondering if all the Babylon 5 fans out there know about some of the great fan game projects out there keeping the B5 universe alive?

Like many I was not happy when sierra cancelled the official B5 game back in 1997 so I was thrilled when I discovered a few years back that fans had started making B5 games and mods of their own! These games have incredible attention to detail recreating many of the ships, characters and stories from the B5 universe or telling new stories, all while capturing the atmosphere, look and sounds of the show.
Some of these projects are mods to pre-existing games, which has resulted in fans of those games finding the B5 mods and then wanting to watch the show on tv or buy the dvds. Certainly another good example of the power of internet communities keeping the B5 universe going and attracting new interest along with reinvigorating old fans..
As a big fan of these projects I decided to create a webpage listing all of the Babylon 5 games and mods showing off how amazing some of these projects are here:

Re: Babylon 5 Related Games & Mod Projects
Hey,

that's quite a task you have set yourself. I wish you the best of luck.

- The Babylon Project - TC Mod for Freespace 2
   - Dark Children (play as the shadows TBP addon campaign)
   - The Relic (play as President Clark’s forces TBP addon campaign)

That's quite a short list. Granted not everything that glisters is gold, but there are more add-on campaigns for TBP.

Some of aged terrible (I am looking at my own work here) but at least the Fortune Hunters- and Drums of War-campaigns could deserve a mention.

Thank you! It's already taken a few years just to get the to the list I have now haha.

Yes other's aren't mentioned simply as I don't know about them. Clearly I need to look into the Babylon Project submods much more!! :)

Ironically, I agree with the first statement :-)  We were young and idealistic.

I still think I constructed the story in a pretty clever way and expanded the universe nicely, plus some of the mission ideas were nice and novel. Gameplay and balancing however were ways off, lots of polishing is needed.

I agree. Either all campaigns should be listed or none! Also TBP isn't technically a TC Mod, but a standalone game...

Re: Babylon 5 Related Games & Mod Projects
Yeah, that's an important distinction to make because a lot of people hear TC mod and think "That looks great but I don't have Freespace, so I can't play it"

Re: Babylon 5 Related Games & Mod Projects
Thanks guys. Yeah I make it clear on my website tribute page to the project that Freespace is not required. However you're right I should modify the forum and master website list entries as well so people don't get the wrong idea. :)
