Babylon 5 Related Games & Mod Projects

Hey guys!

I’m looking to engage the various Babylon 5 communities to help me build an ever improving list of B5 related games out there. Plus I'm wondering if all the Babylon 5 fans out there know about some of the great fan game projects out there keeping the B5 universe alive?

Like many I was not happy when sierra cancelled the official B5 game back in 1997 so I was thrilled when I discovered a few years back that fans had started making B5 games and mods of their own! These games have incredible attention to detail recreating many of the ships, characters and stories from the B5 universe or telling new stories, all while capturing the atmosphere, look and sounds of the show.
Some of these projects are mods to pre-existing games, which has resulted in fans of those games finding the B5 mods and then wanting to watch the show on tv or buy the dvds. Certainly another good example of the power of internet communities keeping the B5 universe going and attracting new interest along with reinvigorating old fans..
As a big fan of these projects I decided to create a webpage listing all of the Babylon 5 games and mods showing off how amazing some of these projects are here:

WOW BLAKE00! Thanks for the post! I've never played any of the games before, but it is all very interesting. Welcome to these Forums as well. Can't wait to read more of your thoughts.

Re: Babylon 5 Related Games & Mod Projects

Thanks.. been years in the making & the awesome B5 game projects just seem to keep coming despite all the years since the show.

Well if you've never played any of them before then I'd definitely recommend the Babylon 5 Civ 4 space mod if you're a strategy gamer looking for a sandbox galaxy experience (civ 4 is required). I've been completely addicted to that over the last few days lol!

If you prefer real time strategy then Sins of the Younger races for Sins of a Solar Empire is really good (sins is required).

If you want more close up fleet action then the Babylon Project for Freespace has lots of awesome mission based campaigns. Some of the ideas they came up with such as playing as the shadows or being one of President Clarks henchmen are awesome (freespace NOT required).

If you want more of a cockpit dogfighting sim then Babylon 5 I've Found Her is really great and has cool cutscenes showing how you're a Psicorps operative on a Earthforce Destroyer (not a mod so no other game required).
