Playable Ships

The B5 game aimed to give the player control over anything from a shuttle all the way up to a battle cruiser. Of course, the demo does not have anywhere near that scope. The default fighter is the Starfury, the backbone of the EA forces. However, other ships are available. By editing the B5.INI file, others become available:


StarFury


Narn Fighter


Centauri Fighter


Thunderbolt


Raider


The game's coding lists a range of fighters:

dilgarFighter
drakFighterPartial
drakhFighter
centauriFighter
shadowFighter
draziFighter
narnFighter
minbariFlyerFighter
minbariFighter
skydancerFighter
raiderFighter
shadowScout
vorlonFighter
thunderbolt

The MOD folder has a lot of files, some of which may contain other ships. The Model Viewer displays all of the ships in the MODEL.RES archive. However, only a certain number of these are even in the demo, let alone playable.
