Blue Planet: Age of Aquarius - The Director's Cut

As the 14th Battlegroup, led by the GTD Orestes, prepares to lead the GTVA's return to Sol, young pilot Samuel Bei finds himself once more under his estranged father's command. As the two Beis grapple with the open wounds of an old tragedy, the greatest journey any human being has ever undertaken opens before them: a sojourn across universes and beyond death itself, as the destiny of the human race and the secrets of Shiva hang in the balance.

As Samuel Bei, you will guide your elite task force through a harrowing journey - a desperate flight through a nightmare of burnt rock, cold fire, and horrifying visions, drawn inexorably onwards by the pull of your own fate. Give up your humanity and your life to protect those you love in one of the most immersive, emotionally engaging FreeSpace stories ever told.

Another update in preparation of the WiH rerelease has been released.

This is a maintenance release to address compatibility issues with 3.6.14 RC builds; If you have had AoA installed previously, you should simply redownload bp-core and bp-visuals1.

Age of Aquarius is now on the FSO Installer! See the first post for more details.

Some files have been updated to fix a few issues and the compatibility files have been integrated so no special BP builds are required. If you just wish to update your current install, you can use the FSO Installer as well to make sure you have all the necessary files. 3.7.2 RC3+ builds are recommended (also available on the FSO installer!)

Daredevils can still download and install the files manually if they wish.

(Instructions for enabling advanced lighting again will come a bit later!)
