This was a group effort.  A major thanks to Karajorma,  0rph3u5 and wesp5 for their help and contributions.

We endeavored to bring TBP to a whole new generation of players.  Of coarse all the credit goes to those that created this work.  Without them this would not be possible.

Great :)! Maybe you should change the last announcement line to "Some play testing and fixing done by wesp5" though, as I see a lot of stuff there that I haven't played so it's not my fault when some of it is still buggy ;). BTW, has anybody here access to the old homepage and could make an update and an announcement there? http://babylon.hard-light.net/index.php

Fixed nameplates (Orph3u5)

This only extends to Earth-Minbari War DEMO and Relic.
"When you work with water, you have to know and respect it. When you labour to subdue it, you have to understand that one day it may rise up and turn all your labours into nothing. For what is water, which seeks to make all things level, which has no taste or colour of its own, but a liquid form of Nothing?" - Graham Swift, Waterland

Nice work, good to see this updated! :) :yes:

 
I tried to gather all of the campaigns and missions that I could find.  If anyone has any or find anymore we can do them as well.  But it was a group effort and I learned a lot from a couple guys as well as working on all the mission files and new tables that were added.

The response from my post in the FB B5 room has been good. So maybe we will get a lot of new players.


I only wish I knew Fred as I would like to try my hand in making a campaign.

Is not that difficult, there are tutorials,
and you can open the mission of the campaigns that already exist to see the structure and how it's works.
The difficult part is the story telling I think.
DEDICATED TO ALL THE
PEOPLE WHO PREDICTED
THAT THE BABYLON
PROJEECT WOULD FAIL IN
ITS MISSION.

-------FAITH MANAGES------
  • Normal Maps for -The Babylon Project-
  • "Battle at ..." (Campaign) You can't choose when, but you will choose where... and you will fight! GO NOW!
  • "One Mistake" (Third Space Campaign)
  • "Each Night I Dream of Home" (Crusade Single Mision)

 
It depends on the complexity of the missions you want to make. The basic stuff is rather easy.

 
I am hoping some of the guys who have made great campaigns will create a few more for TBP.

I had the new version announced on Blues News, which is a famous gaming site. So are there any numbers to check in Knossos to see if downloads are increasing?

Orpheus is the only one who works on new campaign for TBP in a long time though. If you want new content and have ideas, just step ahead.

Hello, great work :).

I encountered a bug in the No Surrender, No Retreat mission.

When the Agrippa and other ships come through the jump gate, once the first Omega is out all other seems to bug together. Neither the fighters appear nor the do the other 3 Cap ships move towards the station.

Do you mean the Severed Dreams single-mission?

I had a look, and I could not replicate that

Spoiler:
The Roanoke in that mission has a bit of head start on the rest of the Earthforce ships because of how the arrival of the ship is handled (tl;dr multiple ships, one jumppoint-arrivals don't work per se in FSO; you can hack it together but it takes a bit of work - here the choice was made to fake it by having the Roanoke's warp-in effect obscure the other ships spawning).

As for the rest of the fighters - the mission seems to be heavily relying on the dynamic AI and it pretty low on scripted events - as such the AI fighters only respond when threatened or when the motherships are attacked.
Switching them over to the hostile team happens a while after the arrival of the Earthforce ships.

Wasn’t there a campaign made in Russian by den5 also called in the beginning by the way? Or am I mistaken...

There was.  In fact, I've got it somewhere.  He made some attempts to translate it to English but it was so poor I often had to open the event sequence to figure out what he meant.  Years ago I started a project to update and convert it... but I never finished.  Someday I hope to get back to it.
The Trivial Psychic Strikes Again!

If you could find it and send it I will take a look at updating it.

Slight departure from the 3.7.0-version:
- Upgraded Loading Screens, v 0.1
- and I had a little fun with textures on the Auroras
- - In Mission 1 & 2 each wing gets their own design for the "top art"
- - In Mission 3, 4 & 5 the designs are increasingly mixed, so that by the final mission no design repeats - this is to communicate the increasing attrition of the Earthforce fighter corps.

I will fine-tune the designs before I turn into a submission.

Are you doing anything about the "Continue Campaign" to "Play Campaign" and "New Campaign" to "Select Campaign" suggestions I made of should I take a look myself?

 
Not at this time.  Those are not easy changes and to be honest I have no problems with the way it is now.  Maybe in the future we can get someone to make us a Main Hall like the ones mjn.mixael has done but as he was explaining it to me that task is way out of my skill level.
