    Is this a complete installation?

    Well, now 3.0 is out for real this time. It'll probably be the last FileFront release, given that FileFront has a 600 MB limit and this file is close to that. Link on the first post.

    I downloaded it, however I get an "archive is corrupt" error message when I try to open it or when I try view it with 7-zip.

    Don't have time to re-download it now to see if it was just a corrupted download.

    ! C:\Users\OS79\AppData\Local\Temp\StarTrek3.00-1.zip: Unexpected end of archive

    This is what I get after I downloaded 3.0.

    Great; can't I ever upload something without it getting corrupted during the upload? I'll have to try again tomorrow; I don't have four hours to spend uploading it again right now.

    I was able to get a perfect download without problems into my computer... but I had to use bitcomet or I suppose any download manager to download it cause 8 times through the browser it stops download about 40% through. But I got a file download tested 100% working using 7zip and winrar.

    On a side note, I don't know if I am doing anything wrong though cause I had to completely take out star Trek 2.38 and then put in 3.0 for it to not stall when loading the game map.

    Thanks for the release, I've been waiting for it for a while now.

    After the post above, I tried again recently, and it successfully downloaded. Apparently, FileFront have periods of being grumpy and periods of being nice :). I stumbled on that period of niceness :lol:.
    Thanks. Looking forward to seeing this merged with necessary parts of Final Frontier Plus for even faster play :).

    Only 160 turns in, but so far no problems. Thank you for the new version, I'm really enjoying it. The music sounds really cleaned up, did they get resampled or am I just hearing things?

    It's probably the fact that the Faith of the Heart piece I took out of the soundtrack was never liked by civ.

    Heh. Even Final Frontier doesn't like the Enterprise music :)

    Not just Final Frontier, civ itself. The mod has had to deal with it since the music was first added in (which pre-dates BtS).

    It occured to me that since you are now distributing everything in an "Assets" and a "Mods" folder (both subfolders of the BTS main directory) you could create an executable installer. And people are apparently still having difficulty installing, so that might be a good thing.

    I set up an Inno script to build an installer (using the icon I made for FF+). It appeared to work, but since I had already installed Star Trek I'm not sure. It certaintly didn't mess anything up.

    I've attached the script and icon file, if you're interested.

    I don't think you have to, but it's probably a good idea - there's one change that won't happen if you don't (but it related to getting the main BtS concepts back and is minor) and one person said they needed to to get it to work.

    @TC01: Thanks, that is on the agenda for 4.0 and I considered it for 3.0 but didn't want to delay the release any while I looked into it. I may or may not release an installer version - depends on how many people have issues.
