ok, thanks. I'll try
edit: wow, this fonts are looking really cool
Okay, I plan as next unit the Excelsior class. Or is someone doing it already?
nope, you can take it if you want. If you still can't find a working mesh, pm me, Morpheus once converted a .max mesh for me, you could use that one
Can I make some suggestions?:
Limit the game to the parts of the Beta/Deta and the Alpha, cause the Delta didn't really affect the Star Trek Story in DS9, TNG.
To the minor races I think the Gorn Confederation should be included, as they are between the Klingons and the Romulans and have been in wars with both.
Also that terran science vessal (my avatar) I think it's the oberth class, is it possible to make it enhance science output? So the more science vessals you have the more science you generate. That way it could put a interesting spin on ships. I really wish the concept of spply crawlers in Sid Alpha Centauri was possible but it's not...
Also does anyone know where the intersellar constortium is located? I think that would be great to add.
The ISC is located to the far galactic east - to the east of the Gorn and Romulan empires. (Is this what you were asking?)
I'm wondering how far you guys are from finishing this?
Also do you have one install file with everything in it so I don't have to get files seperately or do anything else other than unzip one folder into the ../scenarios folder.
From finishing it? Far far away...
But the next version isn't that far away, and that one will be just one file (tnx to Thunderfall)
@music_theory7: There is just the Sol sector map yet, so I didn't thought much about the other maps yet (especially as we got noone to create more maps). Oh ands I don't think you can set units to increase science, this is not MOO2
As promised: Version 0.7.0
-New Terrain: Nebula
-Some new techs
-New playable race: Klingons
-New playable race: Cardassians
-New playable race: Dominion
-Many new unit graphics
Thanks to Thunderfall it's just one file this time (all graphics, etc included) with a size of 30.7 MB.
If you got an older version:
-Delete "Troop Transport" units folder, it's not needed anymore
-Delete your old Star Trek_test.biq (if you still got one)
Vadus for creating the city screen and an awesome nebula terrain (first, unfinished version)
TheMorpheus and Adler17 for new unit graphics
Star Trek Mod V0.7.0 (30.7 MB)
You could make a science vessel for use as the scientific great leader (in C3C). will look better than having einstein running around the map (though, looking at some star trek episodes, not totaly unrealistic).
I get the following error with 0.7:
Unfortunately, I missed the deadline... Didn't know there was one....
Anywho, the Borg Tacticle Cube has been updated with thanks going to The Morpheous for his tutorial on OpenFX and for providing the 3D mesh. The animations are better and cooler looking. You can get it here.
To put it in game and use with your current Borg ship sounds:
1. Unzip BorgTAC3.zip file
2. Copy all FLC files from the newly created BorgTAC directory to the scenarios/startrek/art/units/WHATEVER THE CURRENT NAME FOR THE TACTICLE CUBE IS directory.
3. Edit current game INI to point to new FLC files and remove all other FLC file mentions.
4. Save and your good to go.
Alternatively you can
1. Backup v7.0 units/Tacticle cube directory
2. Copy unziped directory to scenarios/startrek/art/units directory and rename to that provided with v7.0
3. Rename INI file and transfer sound files back into directory.
4. Edit INI to point to sound files.
Once I download v7.0, I can create a new zip file which will take care of this hassle for you.
Hu? That shouldn't happen, I removed that building...
Did you tried to load an old savegame?
Then every race would have to get it's own SL, but thats not possible I think, additional, I don't think the AI would understand a naval SL. Maybe Einstein is a bit...old...but until someone comes up with a good idea, he's usable I think.
@Tzar: Your first release of the new tacticle cube was just in time, so 0.7.0 uses the (old-)new default and the new attack, just not the death
Okay folks forget my earlier post except that you can use it download the zip which contains the NEW death flc. Now in this case all you have to do is replace the older death flc with the newer one...
Checked again and this only happens with the "no conquer bonus" biq; the other one is fine.
Hey this is a really good mod. Just tried it out. Seems brilliant and cant wait for it to be finished.
Just a few suggestions:
Why do you have the Andor, Vulcan, and Tellerite homeworld in a corner? Why not let them play as normal civs?
You could just make one generic ship for all minor races, and change its size depending which class it fits into (i.e. Destroyer, Warship, etc.). And it should then be easy to give different values for the ships from the editor or even give them a generic set of values depending on which class it fits into.
Or better still make one ship for each important minor race and change its size depending upon class, and have even further races with just the generic units (which can be quite weak?).
Also you could not give them the colonization program, which so far seems to be the only thing that lets you expand.
I'm wondering just how big is this mod going to be? Maybe once you have all the races and units finished you could do a massive map. Any chance of a random map working?
Finally a more updated civlopedia, which i'm sure you are aware of.
Well I wish all of you good luck in completing this project, and I really look forward to playing it once finished.
If I would allow the minor races to play like normal civs, they would need a set of unit, which
- increases the already high number of units in game more
- needs more unit graphics
Additional I want to represent the minor race system of BotF (if you know that game) the homeworlds are just there to make the other system buyable, usually in game you can't reach them.
Anyway the minor races will get some ships (if we can get the needed meshes) someday.
Minors aren't able to build the Colon Program, as they didn't got the needed recources, and yes, it's the only way to get settlers.
Random maps will never work with this, just because of the way maps need to be created.
Goldflash is (hopefully) still working on the Pedia, but until it's finished, there are some texts files in the mod folder, with units, buildings and wonders lists (not 100% up to date I fear)
ups, my fault, I included the wrong file
Here is the correct file:
EDIT: File removed, see later post
Hi, I've played the new version today, and there appeared some thinks :
I made a list of them :
Game : "no conquer bonus"
Player : Klingon Empire
1. Ships: I'm able to build all Klingon and Federation Ships
2. Homeplanets of Minor_Races are not right build (mixture of LM and normal Terrain)
3. In the City-Sreen, above : City founded : DecDecDecDecDecDecDec...
4. Medical Complex should need Bioshere
5. Valiant Class cloakable ??
6. K'Vort Class is pretty slow (2 Movement with! Warp 5 Komplex)
Separate names with a comma.
