This One's For You, Battlestar Galactica Fans

Remember that Battlestar Galactica mod, Diaspora, we showed you a few months back? It's got a new trailer, and I am weak at the knees.

Not only because it's looking like the Battlestar games of my dreams, but because it's looking decidedly real, fantastical "trailer money shots" replaced with in-engine and even in-game footage.

Diaspora is is a mod for ageing space combat game Freespace 2, and is being made by some of the team behind the last great Battlestar Freespace mod, Behind the Red Line. No word on a release date yet, which is a shame, but hopefully there'll be one some day.

    Oh yes, yes, yes, yes, YES!

    I'd happily donate to anything to have this see the light of day.


    This looks epic. Freespace 2 remains to this day, on of the best games I have ever played. Period.

    To see it being used as a platform to bring BSG to life is a very exciting prospect indeed. As the poster above me said, I'd happily donate money to see this through to fruition.

    It's a pity that Volition aren't making more Freespace games, and that space simulators in general are a dying breed.
