EDIT: MAC Independents 3.0 (Mar 11)
Finally had time to put up a Mac version of Independents mod:
File name: MacIndyMod3.zip File size: 33.25 MB
Mac mod has the same elements as Win mod, but oddly it plays differently. Identical fleets beat scenario on Win, lose on the Mac. And Mac game crashes more, probably because I used the “backdrop” feature to create some effects (including the space station). But who knows.
They both have a scenario with a weaponized, destroyable space station and another scenario against a fleet of Reaver ships (no Serenity, as it was a transport). The hardest level has more Reavers.
Not much free time to fix anything. I’d suggest the Win version, as that plays pretty good.
WIN Independents Mod 3.0
New ships, weapons, modules and scenarios. One new scenario battles Reavers, another takes on a space station. Both scenarios utilize the terrain feature.
There’s one occasional glitch: If you see a large white box on the far right of the screen once the battle starts, click ESC and return to the Deploy screen. Click “Fight” again and this usually clears the problem and the graphics will load correctly. Or restart GSB. I think this has to do with the video cache, but thats just a guess.
Windows only (for now):
