Balance Mod24 December 2010:

I've posted a beta version of 1.19i for download since I wasn't going to be able to get out a proper update before the holidays. It's basically finished, but hasn't been tested very much. The beta verison is compatible with your saved v1.19 series games. Get it here in .rar format only: Balance Mod v1.19i

The proper version will be out next week along with updates to Small Systems and the other BM Add-ons.

Balance Mod01 December 2010:

Contuining to work on the latest Balance Mod patch. I'm aiming to have it available for early next week. I've made a number of important revisions to the AI's targeting approach which should make them more unpredictable while more effective in their attacks. Currently working out possible ways to eliminate or at least mitigate "circle of stupidity" pursuing in combat.


Space Empires 528 Novmber 2010:

Strategy First has restored their official SE5 forums, which you can find HERE. Here's hoping some of its previous traffic will be restored assuming it remains available.


Captain Kwok01 October 2010:

I've made some updates to the webiste, removing some dead links and updating the Balance Mod FAQs and Balance Mod AI Minister pages. I'm also adding a new game story to the site shortly called Jubrups in Space that follows the struggle of the Jubrup to establish themselves in a hostile galaxy.

The Balance Mod Small Systems extra has been updated to reflect the data file changes introduced in the Balance Mod v1.19h update. You can grab v1.08 of Small Systems HERE. Make sure you have v1.19h installed before applying the updating the Small Systems patch! The extra event scripts have also been updated.


Balance Mod23 September 2010:

I've finally put out the long overdue v1.19g of the Balance Mod. I didn't get much of a chance to play test it well towards the end, but figured the community would surely let me know if something was seriously out of order. See the changelog posted on the Balance Mod History page for all the details. Download Balance Mod v1.19h HERE. The new patch is savegame compatible with existing v1.19 games. Updated versions of Balance Mod extras should be available in the next day or so.


Captain Kwok24 July 2010:

I'm still working on the v1.19h update for the Balance Mod. It's turning out to be another significant update with a lot of improvements for the AI. Thanks to all the forum goers providing feedback and suggestions! I've also made a Twitter account for those that are interested in following the mod's progress or whatever projects I might work on for Space Empires. You can see the shiny new widget just above.


Captain Kwok11 June 2010:

I'm currently finishing off v1.19h for the Balance Mod. I'm hoping to have it completed for early July. It features a couple of bug fixes along with more AI improvements. The new patch is another hold over for Balance Mod v1.20, which I've pushed off to the end of summer. Unfortunately I've been unable to work on it for some time, and there's still a lot of work to be done not to mention reconcilling the current work in progress version with just the changes from the v1.19 series of patches!


Balance Mod01 March 2010:

The Balance Mod Small Systems extra has been updated to reflect the data file changes introduced in the Balance Mod v1.19g update. You can grab v1.07 of Small Systems HERE. Make sure you have v1.19g installed before applying the updating the Small Systems patch!

Space Empires V04 February 2010:

After being down for just over 6 weeks, Strategy First's Space Empires V website is back online. You can visit it HERE. I'm glad to see it back up as I thought for certain it had been discontinued. Here at the Space Empires Depot I've made it 5 years without a major service interuption!


Balance Mod05 January 2010:

Happy New Year! Just a quick update to let interested players to know that work on version 1.20 of the Balance Mod continues and that another patch will be issued for v1.19 to correct a few minor issues.
