Eightball: where exactly i can get a copy of your mod? I really want to play EFS again and your mod appears to be the most interesting in development nowadays....

EDIT - dead links removed, see first post for new link.

Still plugging away at the next release whenever I'm in the modding mood. Should be a significant improvement over the current version.

Long time since I last checked in! How's life? I hope things are all right. Do you have any sensible news about our beloved EFS? :D

A long time indeed. Life's just about the same for me. You?

Progress on the mod has been slow for the past few months, due to a low level of interest in EFS on my part. Now it's a matter of waiting until my interest resurfaces, which could be a few weeks or several months away! I might consider releasing the current build at some point, though it had a few nasty bugs as I recall.

I know the feeling. Interests do rise and fall...all's well here, if we still can say that. Italy is collapsing.

Hook me up with this mod, I just got EFS up and running again and this mod sounds awesome. Email me at and where can I find the exe mod that allows symbiots to build units?

It's in a thread a bit further in the forum. Mediafire link still working:

I don't check this forum anymore, sorry. I almost finished a mod of my own which was fairly working but then dropped the ball, a pity as it was rather done and complete, sorry people.

I don't know if Eightballmaniac is still around too...

Sorry to hear that madrigal! That could've been a rare jewel, as I told Eightball once about his own project. He said he would wait for his interest to rise again but would probably be months. I still check in from time to time, his ideas were quite promising.

Well, I was not far from being done... Among novelties, all starting planets were reworked quite a lot 8)

perhaps during summer I can take a final look and release it... The main problem I saw is that the AI is really difficult to steer in the right direction, often lost in doing meaningless things... but well, the mod I did is of greater challenges that basic version anyway.

I could have sworn I reuploaded this after MegaUpload went down, but obviously not. Sorry about the long delay, folks!

Download here

This is the same as the last release from 2009. The next version needs testing and rebalancing since the empty planets are now mostly populated, but it'll be finished eventually.

The link to mega downloads has a statement that it was taken down by the Gov. Do you have any other sites for the download? I will also be sending you a PM with my email.

The new link is two posts up from yours or in the first post of the thread. I'll remove the old links, though! Forgot about that before.
