oh, and here's a "capital ship encounter" co-op for you, still a work in progress. once it's done, I'm going to go in and try to set it up so humans can play on the cylon side
let me know about any problems you run into in the 3rd party mission thread below. I just adapted it to co-op and it played fine for me...
The lore concept I'm working around is that the fleet never really fully trusted the CMP and enough of the Colonials were able to regroup and fend of the cylon attack. That being said, multiple worlds were nuked, with all the implications (humanitarian) that that involves. The 12 colonies suffered a nuclear disaster, but not total annihilation...
The Mission: Intelligence gathered from hundreds of biologically made cylons, we've been calling them skinjobs, has indicated that the cylons had intended a coup de gras with the CMP shut down virus, and did not have the resources to complete their plans of holocaust against our people while facing our defense. While many of our resources are dedicating to saving the lives of our citizens and preparing for counter offensive, these skinjobs have given us some other poignant intelligence, they've indicated a weak spot. The Battlestar Cerberus has been sent on special assignment to locate a basestar containing original copies of many of the cylon biological models. Our scientists have also provided us with an experimental "resurection jammer" so just maybe we can send these frakers strait to hades.. Once located our orders are clear, destroy that baseship and it's VIP targets, and inflict as much damage as possible while in enemy territory. Once this VIP vessel is destroyed, return to Canceron for biovac ops.
Almost forgot to mention, we've put together a frigate group , call sign: Spectrum, to be within range for backup if required. They'll be providing long range picketing in your area of operations but will keep an FTL fix during your mission.
you'll note that the battlestar will do well if it's able to keep it's flak defenses up, and can take on quite a few baseships, but if it's bracketed like the pegasus was it'll get jacked up, you'll find it in here actually, it doesn't play out the same every time due to positioning of the ships, and what you do or dont do will effect what happens
