I would love to play multiplayer as well, but I have a question: I have been reading that the "balanced" mod and "AddOn" mod make it more worthwhile to play - would you be willing to try that mod out (with me), as well? :D - peace :)

To install the mod this might help...

Instructions found here:

To find your game folder try going to: Program Files(or Program Files (x86) if you're on 64 bit)\Steam\SteamApps\common.

Then open the folder for Space Empires/SE5/Gametypes

Then extract the mod files in to the game types folder and it should work.

To play the mod you should load the game and select it from the game menu.

Having a multiplayer game running now with a friend using Crimson Mod 9.0 with modded shipsets (all stock ones out, replaced by a ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ of different scifi universes, ranging from Stargate to Homeworld to Babylon 5 and more).

Meh... I hear hamachi *coughbarfcough* makes it easier to set up mp. Never had anybody to play with though. On that topic if you want to play an mp game with a mod merge of Addon 2.0 and FQM I recently stuck them together. It works flawlessly and I already have it backed on dropbox.

I love how easy it is to mod Se5 :)

How does Addon 2.0 stack up against balance mod? I would love a game, and would be willing to learn a different modset if I need to. The SEV community also has a site that moderates multiplayer games. You can find it here . Not many people left playing, but we might be able to round a couple up.

I haven't actually played balance mod. I have it installed though. So I could give it a whirl and see. I like the fact that addon mod adds two new planet types and four more atmosphere types though. You can add me if you want and we try to get a group together. I'll be moving in a few days though so I won't on much till Sunday or Monday.

That is fine. I will install Addon 2.0 and give it a whirl. It is possible, if it doesn't change too much about the mechanics, that the mods could be meshed so that we could play both at the same time.
