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...

Hello all,
            I know things have been somewhat quiet on here, but work has been continuing in the background, little tweaks here and there, bug fixes etc. Also, I have finally gotten around to the 6 or 8 hours of sweat and toil it takes to fully integrate a new race.

The final race in KA2: Empire at War is the Lyran Star Kingdom. I've had to change the existing Lyran ships around a fair bit to make them fit for a fully playable race. For example. I have added a new secondary weapon type, unusual in the fact that it is a beam weapon not a torpedo or ordnance based weapon. This new weapon is the Mauler Cannon, a familiar name to those who play SFB. This Mauler is not quite as powerful however, but it is a close match for a Medium or Heavy Plasma Torpedo. Similar to the Hydrans, who also master the "knife fight", Lyran ships are all about close range combat. They have no real long range supporting fire, other than cruise missiles for specialist work; they are intended to quickly close with an enemy and rip them to shreds with point blank disruptor and beam weapon fire.

I am currently working on the AI and Manual Addons for the Lyrans, but in the mean time I have posted a screenshot of them in action, showing the new GUI for them and so forth. I will keep you updated as we get closer to V.1.3 release :)

Single Player is not intended to work in any EAW version. Only the original KA2 The General War version works on single player.

Are you playing the FleetOps Beta version or the Armada II version?

fleet ops version, ok its been years since i played an armada mod so i forgot you cant block the singleplayer function like most modded games i play. it runs skirmish for the most part but i have to save every ten minutes because it crashes every now and then. is it supposed to crash often? i understand its all beta, which is why i ask.

Those Klingon Warships always look awsome & menacing - especially when they travel in packs!

Hey there. Just letting you know, the Tholian wormhole generator doesn't seem to work, I'll click where I want it to open a wormhole, it'll tell me a "subspace rift" is detected, but there's nothing there. Also, another, very strange bug, Gorn construction ships, when they build something, keep moving as they build. Not as in you can click around and tell them to go places, as in they continuously drift forward until construction is complete. Anything I can tweak to fix these issues?

Hmm, odd. Worked fine before. The ISC one is based on the same code and it works. I'll take a look and see if anything has gone awry with it. With the Gorn Construction ships, again not sure why certain ships drift. It's an ongoing issue.

Aye that's a weird little bug. I've encountered it before but i've not found a way to fix it. It's due to the way I "stacked" research objects on some stations to fit them in. I may simply make the research pods of a station untargetable to prevent this occurring (I can do that now with FleetOps)

The ship thing i've also encountered but I am puzzled as to why since aside from the very large ships this wasn't really an issue in A2 KA2, and the physics files haven't changed in the FleetOps version. Are there any ships that seem to do this particularly badly?

Off the top of my head, the only particular class I've noticed always doing it is the Klingon Troop Transport; I admittedly need to play with the other races more, been a bit attached to the Klingons ^^; btw I like how the fighter craft now automatically home in on the nearest carrier, it's a nice sight, several carriers going alone with swarms of fighters circling them >:3

I've been looking at it some more, I don't think it's decided by the particular ship type. I finally got all but one of my troop transports to hold still..not sure if this is good or bad news. I've noticed the movements are somewhat like the fighters as they give those broad loops, maybe something to do with that?

Well, some ships share a physics file, others have their own. I shall have to investigate and see if theres a particular setting that is influencing this.
