Unfortunately, tater’s original download link (from 2010) for this intriguing mod is broken.
WayOfEnoch has graciously re-uploaded tater’s mod.
His link: >> http://www.mediafire.com/?swwqf7idwvieamu <<
The Earth Defense Force confirms WayOf Enoch’s
battlefield promotion to Sergeant-Major of Artillery
for that kindness.
If that newer link should break at some point in the future,
please post the news about it in this thread. Thanks.
tater, I want to applaud you for your work in bringing some of Star Blazers into GSB. I just saw some of your efforts over here amidst hopefast’s Fantasy Fleet mod.
I had intended to do that very thing myself until I recently suffered a serious injury and was mostly offline until now. My family are fans of Star Blazers. This is in spite of its somewhat fractured nature, where it could never quite decide whether to be an adults’ show or a kids’ show so it aimed for both at the same time. Hard to believe that 2009 marked Yamato’s 30th anniversary of its American TV broadcast début as Star Blazers. The story arc has true flashes of genius to it, and it exists as a special definition of the very term “epic”.
Are you working on the Argentina-class Attack Spacecraft Carrier hull or the Texas-class Main Space Battleship hull? I’m using the fleet nomenclature from the “Star Blazers Perfect Album,” printed by Argo Press. The screenshot you shared with us in that other thread linked above looked to me as if it was showing a pair of 318-class Space Destroyer hulls in action.
I suppose we’ll have to await some form of area-of-effect weapon being handed to us by cliffski before anything remotely like a true Wave Motion Gun can be implemented in GSB.
Hull integrity, repair and point-defense in SB are nothing short of amazing. It’s like someone quadrupled the Tribe’s attributes and set them loose upon an unsuspecting universe! I guess only Earth’s good guys have that tech. If you’re captain of a Gamilon or Comet Empire ship, all that’s needed to make your ship explode with gusto is a swift kick.
