2 Years after the release of "Klingon Academy II: The General War" comes a multiplayer/instant action expansion, "Klingon Academy II: Empire at War". KA2: EAW takes the enhanced combat gameplay of KA2: The General War and adds a rich, detailed 'Empire Building' element to it. No longer can you quickly build up your forces. Now you must dedicate time and resources to research and development. This detailed system of hull, conversion packs, systems, weapons and other miscellaneous research also sheds light on the backstory behind KA2. Learn about the Klingon Empire designs her warships, how the Federation developed the massive Yamato Class, and discover the history of the Interstellar Concordium and the Tholian Assembly. Each side has an expanded set of ship classes, and a mysterious new power has entered the galaxy. The Federation's worst fears are about to be realised...

KA2 v1.5 has been released. Thought it would be wise to follow up with a changelog.

- Physics files have been entirely redone. Hopefully this will solve the "wandering ships" problem, ships endlessly turning etc.

- Reworked weapons ranges. Tractor Beam weapons are now very short ranged, (all extrapolated from KA range data) Hellbores are now long range, capable of out-ranging most weapons. Each race's torpedo cruiser now has very long ranged torpedoes that can only target stations (and large monsters...)

- Most Hydran ships now have a fighter complement. These are hellbore or fusion beam armed, and the exact complement varies ship to ship. Some carry all fusions, some all hellbores, some a mix. Tooltips have been modified to reflect this.

- General bug fixes and graphical tweaks.

- New hero units (Commander Thok Mak for the Klingon Empire, Admiral Lenara for the Romulan Star Empire) and new VOs for the USS Star Empire and the IKS QeH'ral (namely, Captain Torlek, the player character from Klingon Academy)

- New VOs for several ship classes, to increase variety.

- Several new, symmetrical maps.

- New FleetOps style explosion effects

- New upgrade functionality. Carriers can upgrade to carry new types of fighter, and ISC ships can upgrade to their Disruptor armed "D" Refits.

- Secondary, Heavy and Advanced weapons no longer target fightercraft. (Ships will now engage them with primary weapons only)

- Changed probe functionality. Now fires a probe from a forward torpedo tube in the direction the ship is facing, which travels for a set time until it fades out.

- Added Plasma-Detecting Probes (PDPs) to certain ships. These probes are functionally the same as regular ones, but also reveal cloaked ships in their sensor range.

- Added new, subtle phaser flares to beam weapons. Not as garish as normal A2 flares, they help to blend the effect better, especially with large beams like the PPD or the AMFP.

Just tried your new beta 1.4. Still the same issue, once things start to heat up in terms of action and numbers of units it just crashes.

Unfortunately this is an issue with the FleetOps modified Storm 3d Engine on modern systems. I don't believe there are any more crashes caused by poor coding on my part. I will continue to test though.

Tiny correction. Apparently due to a fault in the FleetOps modified engine, the GDDS Defensive Mode when used by the AI causes crashes. I am working on a new version of the GDDS to fix this.

Found how on forum:

The tiny fraction of 56k users will have the means to visit an ordinary internet café, university, neighbour or friend and their USB stick in the pocket. 600 mb or even more should not be a problem to download today. Especially when it is a worthwhile TC like yours.

However, complicated installation procedures need to be compensated somehow if you want to make as many people enjoy your work as possible. Would be a shame to have 50% of players lost because of too hard installation procedures.


If it helps:

Installation procedure for KA2: Empire at War :

Note: A working Star Trek: Armada II CD or an image of it is obligatory to install and play the game.

1. Download and Install Star Trek Fleet Operations (fleetops.net) and manually place the "Mods" folder inside the "Data" folder
2. Download KA2:EaW, Textures folder and the STA2 Classic mod to a place you define

You can find KA2:EaW and the Textures folder here: LINK
You can find STA2 Classic here: LINK

3. Create a "STA2 Classic" folder and a "KA2:EaW" folder inside the "Mods" folder of Fleet Operations
4. Install the two respective mods into the respective folders and finally rename "STA2 Classic folder" into "CutDown".
5. Open the "CutDown" folder and replace the existing "Textures" folder with the downloaded "Textures" folder from Step 2. From now on the KA2:EaW mod hooks up to the "CutDown" folder automatically.
6. Run the original Fleet Operations game and go to "Options --> Mod Settings" to activate the KA2:EaW total conversion modification
7. Play the game

Total download size (including two games): XXX MB

Note: A working star Trek: Armada II CD or an image of it is obligatory to play the game.
