About This File

From the TV-series 'FireFly' and the 2005 film of the same name. A planet, complete with orbiting asteroids are also featured.


Aplogies for the large .zip file size; the .bsp turned out to be bigger than expected. The

size of the planet's textures, shaders and .ase file didn't help much either. I figure if

you're a big enough fan of the series/film, you'll spare the extra bandwidth anyway.


Hard-core fans will realise that some areas seen in the tv-series and film is missing:

(the crew and passenger quarters). This wasn't intentional, I found the online blueprint

and scale model replica late into the process, I was working with movie stills up until

then and consequently had to make some compromises.


Also note that some areas of the ship are hard to get around, (mainly because it's a trade

freighter rather than a luxury cruiser, giving me less room to work with.) Try walking

(rather than running) through the doors/small passageways; that way, you'll get stuck less

often. I have included bot-support but don't be suprised if they get stuck too, they aren't as clever as we all wish them to be.


This map has been tested on a Pentium 4 with 2.99 GHZ, 1.50GB of RAM and a NVIDIA FX5200

128MB GFX Card, and another Pentium 4 with significantly lower specs. Due to the high-poly

nature of the map, I recommend using a PC with similar or higher specs to avoid lag

spikes. I have included the source .map file if it is of any use to anybody. You may copy any parts of the map as long as you credit me somewhere in the readme and ask permission

first. (For email addresses see the footnote.)



There are two secrets in the map; both accessible from the cargo bay. If you are having

trouble finding them, load up the .map file in the 'source' folder of the .pk3.



If you look at 90' away from the planet (but with the planet still in view) the

outer-planetary glow shader appears to go through the planet.


Once in the medical bay looking back at the (open) entrance doors, they seem to go through

the medical bay door-frame. Arg!



The music was composed by David Newman and produced in the Serenity (2005) Official

Soundtrack Compact Disc. I claim no ownership to these files; all credit goes to original



Most of the custom textures and shaders have been written or created by myself. A few

exceptions (e.g. the Serenity Logo) are appropriable to other authors. Again, I claim no

ownership to these files; all credit goes to the original authors.


Thanks to

Marro, ReVa, Alien and Seij and Predator for BETA testing.


The Order of Jedi Knights clan for supporting me throughout the project.


Isla Kamamee for general shader help and for spending nearly a day trying to convert an .ase into an .md3... ( :P)



If you need any help, want to inquire about any techniques I’ve used, or would like to

import the ship into another Serenity or Firefly themed map, then email me via my website:




I'll be glad to help.

Nice, this map has finally been released to JKHub! I've never seen the TV series @Sentra. Is it worth watching?

I think its one of those shows you kind of have to just try for yourself. You'll either love it or hate it. Yes, I think its worth a go. But its really a coin toss when it comes to whether or not you'll enjoy it.

I wonder if he ever finished the V2 I remember seeing on gamefront forums years ago...was looking nice


He was working on it and had it almost finished. But he went on a world trip for about 2 years and I think he will be returning back home later this year.
