BP: Age of Aquarius - The Director's Cut discussion
This thread is for discussion of the voice-acted version of Age of Aquarius.

Before the discussion gets going though, I'd like to thank everyone who was involved in this project: the dev staff, voice actors and those who submitted their auditions, and the beta testers. You've all helped turn a one-person fan campaign into a pretty damn cool mod, and it's been a pleasure.

Special thanks must go to General Battuta, Rian and The E for their tireless work in co-coordinating the voice acting.

Nice, going to wait until it's mirrored somewhere that doesn't spam me with a trillion ads...or until there is a consolidated archive...

Don't you guys have an FTP on hard-light.net? Why is it hosted on Mediafire :/

HLP's bandwidth does not go into hosting public mod downloads. If that was allowed, there wouldn't be bandwidth left for anything else. If mediafire is not good enough for you, I'm afraid you'll have to wait quite a while for other mirrors to appear.

Re: BP: Age of Aquarius - The Director's Cut discussion
Wow looks great....
I love the new interface and the superb voices.

With voice acting BP is like a new game...
Also the new Cutscenes i see (Destruction of an Orion class Destroyer above earth) looks great too.

And i hope the difficulty in later missions (Forced Entry, Keepers of Hell) will be a little lowered.
I never beat Forced Entry without a little invul. cheat for any Capital Ship.

Great work so far and i am looking foreward for War in Heaven.

Follow the installation instructions mentioned in the first post. They state, quite clearly, that you have to delete all old BP files.

Re: BP: Age of Aquarius - The Director's Cut discussion
Played it up to...

Spoiler:
...the part where Samuel merges with the Vishnans, ...

...and I must say that I am very, very impressed.

Battuta once said that the BP Team got a really good female voice for the Temeraire. He wasn't lying about that.

The good Colonol has outdone himself voicing the Orestes. :nod:

And I was grinning so hard when I heard...

Spoiler:
...the GTT Cyrus.

I'm really very happy that the VA for this turned out just as well as it could ever be.

Difficulty-wise, it's still good old BP. Forced Entry wasn't as bad as I did it the first time (I've done it enough times to have a vague sense of direction), but I almost lost the Labouchere. The Shivans managed to pummel it down to 39% hull, and the Sanctuary took a full LRed. Apart from that, everything else was just fine. :)

 :yes: cheers.

I'm on 45kbps connection (still) and i'm just waiting on audio2 to finish, i'm at 4%.

i'll be honest, i've had a peek in the vps and like what i see so far. I'm just eager to play it before work tomorrow.
