    Great unit. Only problem being, Galactica doesn't use lasers, it uses a range of projectile weapons (including nuclear weapons).

    LOL not sure I'd agree entirely with that I watched the originals when they were originaly released and special effects were not nearly as good at that time.

    Great job on the unit I really like the little viper flying around.

    The old version looked more real...CGI looks pretty fake..:). Looks nice, but looks fake. Nothing beats a classic I always say.

    I should have known that in 5 posts the discussion on which one is better would start... :D The old ship is nicer in my opinion, but when I started this I only had this model. Meanwhile I got a classic one as well, perhaps you can expect that in a few weeks.
    But I have to disagree on the lasers of the new Galactica: what are these then?

    Perhaps they don't use them much, but they are there... :)

    @La_Dav: can't wait to see more of your work... :)

    For now, the preview images seem to be offline.

    Well done on this unit. It is imaginative and very pleasing to look at.

    @the whiners, Who care's which one is better. If someone gives you a Ferrari, are you really in the mood to complain that you prefer Porsche. Consider this: Even if you prefer one series to the other, you still have this beautiful unit to play with. As the catalog of available space ships grow so does the inventive way the modders will use them. And this is a pretty unit that I would't mind seeing in a mod or two, no matter what they call it in their game.


    Now the DL link is offline too, it seems the CFC file server is acting up a bit. Hopefully the admins will sort it out. Fortunately I was lucky enough to DL it first and comment on it later.

    The discussion had nothing to do whatsoever with the unit's quality...I was just defending Flamand's decision to have a laser attack with it. :)

    Flamand knows my thoughts on the Battlestars, that is why I found him a model of the old Series Galactica.:D

    But this post is in response to those who thought the Galactica did not have lasers capable of causing damage. The quote is directly from the Battlestar Galactica Tech Manual.:cool:

    So my friend flamand has the attacks correct. Just need the Solonite missile attacks.;)


    :nuke: Cheers, Thorgrimm :nuke:

    Ok, I added the missile attack. You can go all back to praising the unit now... (me being extremely vain... :D)

    Not even a time traveling Delorian? :)

    I think sometimes views are dependant on what you actually saw, when..
    I like the original series, but then again I viewed it then and there. Someone who was born after it, would probably consider it cheesy...different era, different perception. Same thing with Trek and why I like TNG the best.

    This is a great unit. I'm collecting from sources all around for my mods. Great stuff. Does BSG has a good possibility for a mod though? Wouldn't many units have to be completely new to any of the series?

    Time travel is worthless until they invent "Mr Fussion"...I dont have Plutonium...maybe they sell it at your Corner Store...but here in 1985 its a little harder to come by...

    (What AM I TALKING ABOUT??? Oh no here come the Lybians)
