I’m not a programmer so I’d have no idea how to do this myself, but I was thinking that it could be kind of cool if boarding craft were introduced into GSB. They could be a type of fighter or maybe launched from a cruiser and ships could have a new defense to counter it, in the form of a compliment of marines.
The idea has been bounced back and forth for the campaign expansion (and a little bit even before that), but I think it was decided against in the end. There’s no way we could do this ourselves in a mod, and I believe Cliffski decided that it would require too much work to put it into the game right now. It’s possible he may decide to throw it in after he’s finished up the campaign mode, but I wouldn’t bet on it. He’s already stated that he’s hoping to get started on his next game once he’s finished up with the campaign.
