Mod Synopsis: This Mod is based on the movie Starship Troopers, which in turn is based on the novel of the same name by Robert A. Heinlein. Depicting a interglobal war between future Earth society and the fearsome bugs of the planet Klendathu, the movie had more special effects than Michael Jackson's nose. The mod, temporarily in slow development due to end of the semester exams, is well underway and looking great. If you are a fan of the movie Starship Troopers, stick this mod at the top of your wishlist!
