The Battle Captains and Blue Planet Legacy on Knossos
Some background: the developer of BP2: The Battle Captains (TBC) disappeared before Knossos was a thing. Someone else took it upon themselves to upload it to Knossos and set Blue Planet Complete as a dependency. Unfortunately, TBC need the Legacy Blue Planet 1 and Blue Planet 2... BPC simply doesn't have the required assets. And Blue Planet Legacy is not available on Knossos/Nebula. I have gotten my hands on a copy of the Legacy (pre-"complete") Blue Planet 1 & 2. I slotted those in and, yes, I it fixes many of the issues TBC was experiencing (though i cant say it fixes them all).

So here are the salient facts:

  • Legacy Blue Planet is not on Knossos.
  • The Battle Captains, in it's current form, requires Legacy Blue Planet.
  • I do not (yet) have the skill, time, or interest to rework the entire mod to work with Blue Planet Complete.

Therefore, I see two options:

  • Bundle Legacy Blue Planet into The Battle Captains
  • Upload Legacy Blue Planet to Nebula/Knossos and put a warning in the description that it's only there to resolve dependencies in old mods and players should use Blue Planet Complete for actual play.[/l1]
This is why i'm making this a new topic... the implications go well beyond TBC. Let me also state that ngld intends for NuKnossos (the Knossos re-write that's currently in progress) to have a tags system... which means, as a separate mod on Knossos, Legacy Blue Planet could be set to be hidden by default as a "Modder's Resource". On the other hand there is roughly zero chance of Legacy Blue Planet ever seeing an update of any kind.

I'd like to hear what the BP team thinks about this.

Man, I dunno.

I'm thrilled this campaign has been resurrected from the deep places of the Earth.
