    B5 mods

    There's actually more out there than I thought, check out this site.

    They also say that the original designers of the 'Official' game tried to continue the project on their own, but Sierra refuse to give up the licence. (strange since they have no interest in releasing a game)

    I've got another interesting link...

    http://www.b5mods.com

    They offer modifications for "Homeworld". You can play the "Great wars" like Earth civil war and the shadow war. And, of course, they have replaced the homeworld models with models from the b5 universe!

    So... if you ever wanted to command the white star fleet attacking
    Clarks shadow-omegas...here you go!

    Wouldn't you trade the poster for something else?

    Ya... i don't know i will ever forgive Sierra for that... Although the upside of that is they gave away all the promotional items they had created to advertise the game. (yes they were that close to the release). SO, i have a Poster, 3d mouse pad, and a shadow watch.

    Of course i would trade them all in for a great flight sim.

    Well the original Sierra game was to be a full flight simulator. The idea was that you could take control of numerous craft from many races and carry out missions throughout the B5 universe.

    From what I read at the time, the game was basically finished. All the hard work had been done, and all that was left was a bit of polishing. Then Sierra decided B5 was not a large enough franchise to make enough money. (despite already spending the time and money to make the game)

    If I remember correctly it was around the same time that the company Sierra changed hands and that was probably the reason for the decision. (Up until that point Sierra was a 'TOP' games company making games like Halflife. Since then they have been very average)

    The hardest thing to swallow was the fact that the game was pretty much ready to launch. I expect it still exists somewhere on some games designer's pc, never to see the light of day again.

    but is that starfury hard to fly or what?

    this game really shows what the B5 game could have been.

    Shame.
    Flying a Statfury is easy. Not getting blown to atoms by swarming Frazi fighters or a squad of Black Omegas is another thing entirely...

    But I do agree with you, it is a shame that this (along with a few fan-made mods of other games) are the only fruits of B5 in the computer gaming world.

    There seems to be no Mac version on any free download...

    I loved Descent (and Descent 3), haven't played much beyond those two, I'd buy the B5 game, but only if it doesn't mean having to buy a Windows PC to play it.

    I've tried this game. It is Freeware, but do not let that stop you. The production values and artwork are incredible.

    Not only that, but they used the correct physics model so gameplay gets interesting fast.

    It is a small game (they call it a prequel to the actual game). It consists of three sections to train you (basic movement around Io, traversing hyperspace, and basic combat), then you have a couple of missions which set up the storyline.

    If you've ever wanted to gun down raiders (or Frazi heavy fighters, or Starfuries, for that matter) than this game is well worth the (free) download (<300 Mb if I remember correctly).

    When Sierra pulled the plug out of the game project i almost dropped dead. The only game based on a series/movie that i ever wanted to buy and then it gets canceled. Just my luck.

    Joe already gave a good explanation for our chances to get a new game. It will strongly depend on the success of TMoS or any other project that will come up. In other words: if Babylon5 starts to develop into a real successful franchise, we will get our game. Or maybe even more of them.

    And that doesn'nt mean they have to be *good* games.

    Right now i think EVE online is about as close as your going to get. I have seen some attempts done for a B-5 based game in older open-GL.(not so great textures IMHO), and i cetainly wouldnt want to see it do as badly as the farscape game did .
