Veteran and independent mapper for Star Trek Voyager: Elite Force. Developer of the 2004's highly regarded and signature map "Asteroid Base". Now happily mapping for other games while being regarded as untermensch by Elite Force's RPG-X communities . . .

Some concept images from the time I was still developing the Battlestar Aurelia map for RPG-X. At the time, I was toying with the transparent workstation idea that I had seen in Avatar.

Most designs were pretty locked tight at that moment and found their way in the Aurelia map before it was being ported towards Jedi Academy.

Tomorrow an update will be released for Asteroid Base for Jedi Academy. The update will address several issues brought forward during the 2016 summer courses that I have given plus that after 13 years, it will add a working bot support. The bot support will also work on the old Release THREE version.

Outline THREE of the map U.S.S Leonov - "The Animal" for Jedi Academy has been released and is now available through the Download page.

This outlining release is the result of continued development based on the cancelled Release TWO version for RPG-X/rpgx-EF, which are both no longer in development. It will give players a chance to see how the development of the map is progressing, other then the usual screenshots posted on the webpage and other channels.

Though the map can be percieved as "odd" because of its heavy Star Trek influence and design, feedback is as always much appreciated.

The amount of harddisk space as it was used by my Star Trek Voyager: Elite Force installation, not bad for a game that was only shipped onto one 650 MB CD-ROM. After 16 consecutive years, I have decided to remove the game from my primary harddrive in favor of other games and other projects that I intend to release under the Apprentice banner.

Altough Elite Force remains one of the few Star Trek games that actually "worked", on a development level was the game "done" a long time ago. Singleplayer development was already dead after Freelance went to another game before it was canned and the only multiplayer development that existed was RPG-X, which is no longer in active development since the whole rpgxEF project and website is no longer available (Github displays files that are at least three years old).

This left my Elite Force installation gathering dust and that was unfortunately not by MY choice. The main RPG-X developer by the name of TiM chose to be an arse and decided to dismiss one of the last if not the last independent developer for his aging RPG-X product, by superceding his own ego and his own pride and subsequently hides behind his 'privileges' and refuses to talk in a more profesional and mature enviroment other then pointing fingers and blame others. This makes the choice (if you can call it a choice) much easier: delete it!

So now I have more room to develop projects and maybe those that were originally intented for Elite Force, will see a Jedi Academy release since that game has still an active mapping and modding activity.

One of the advantages of porting "The Animal" to Jedi Academy is that besides higher limits, I don't have to take in consideration a somewhat poorly programmed modification with a whole lot of bells and whistles that takes a lot of memory, thus reducing the actual room available to produce content.

This enables me to restore certain areas that had to be cut from the original release (which used Thilo's Elite Force engine release to make it barely work), primarily on Deck 2 which will be significant larger then the original Regular and planned Extended releases for RPG-X and rpgxEF.

In preparation of the Jedi Academy release of "Asteroid Base II", new comparisation shots between Release TWO and Release THREE have now been made available.

After months of development, "Asteroid Base II - Release THREE" shall be released on April 30th, 2016 at 0:00 CET for Jedi Academy. Other versions are pending and will become available when completed.

After two years of development, I've released my pass of the {Jedi's of Freedom} Clan map "Secret Mission Center".

Screenshots and the map itself are available through the special Secret Mission Center page or just click here to download it directly.
