Greetings, fellow space adventurers!
Judging by the silence in these forums, folks are either running out of steam for mod ideas or are very busy blasting Jerry’s forces in GTB.
Or perhaps the RL monster has claimed their souls?
In any event, I thought I’d break the silence and introduce a little something I’ve been working on.
This is an attempt to craft a brand new race for the game without using art from any external source (GSB included) than what I can draw in Paint.net.
It started as a personal challenge of sorts and thought I’d share the results.
-New race to stomp enemies with or protect the GSB Universe against: The Machines
- eight hulls (two cruisers, two frigates and four fighters (more to come)
- three skirmish scenarios to take on the Machine threat (so far)
Unlike other races, the Machines have no crew for their ships, because they ARE the ships themselves. Since there’s no need for life support systems or internal spaces to house the crew, Machine vessels tend to be quite sturdy, but also very slow and heavy. They also require much more materials to construct which often limits the number of ships in a Machine fleet.
GSB version 1.58 ( uses custom bullets, flak weapons and return to sender scramblers)
Unzip the archive and place ‘data’ and ‘machine’ folders into your GSB directory allowing overwrite.
To uninstall, first remove any designs using hulls or modules from this mod in your documents GSB folder, then delete the machine folder, “machine.txt” in GSB/data/installs, “machine.pkg” in GSB/data/packages and “Super Metroid.ogg” in GSB/data/sounds/music.
