[size=150]Finally found the time finish (for the most part) and organize the mod folder for a release.[/size]
What’s this mod do:
Adds a new playable race: RTYPE based on Irem’s space shooter series of the same name.
Both human and BYDO ships are intentionally squished into one race to allow players to tweak their forces to fit their style.
You can use purely human ships (All fighters without BYDO Forces and mechanical units), go all BYDO or a mix in between.
What’s in it:
- 3 scenarios (2 skirmish and 1 survival)
- 11 fighters with force variants
- 10 frigates/small BYDO creatures
- 7 cruisers/huge BYDO
- many new modules for the race
- 2 new weapons for all races (1 fighter and 1 cruiser)
- 2 new power plants for all races (1 fighter and 1 cruiser)
-Unzip the archive in your Gratuitous Space Battles folder (not the one in your Documents).
-Allow folders to merge when prompted
-Delete RTYPE folder in your Gratuitous Space Battles game directory
-delete any ship designs using hulls or modules from this mod (this includes vanilla ships using the universally available wave cannons and power plants).
This mod is not intended to be used for profit, so don’t think about it unless you want Cliff or IREM to chase after you in a R-9.
The R-9 Arrowhead and several other models used Pixel511’s awesome rendered image as a base. (pixel511.deviantart.com/art/R-TY … -136062792)
A few others were obtained via Google search and modified as needed. The rest including the Force units and Fx were drawn by me.
Props for all RTYPE stuff goes to IREM and of course it would not be possible to make this mod without Cliffski’s awesome game, GSB.
Apologies for taking years to finish this… LITERALLY!
