I would request a more robust galaxyscenariodef file. I would really love to have access to all the wonderful goodies you guys have given us. Like I don't know how to end up seeing the promellian battlecruiser or place 8472 around a planet. I would just like to be given a wider toolset to build maps and worlds the way I like. Other than that, fantastic work as usual guys!

Promellian battlecruisers are present around shattered moons as showpieces. They're derelict and don't move or interact at all.

Wouldn't make much sense putting 8472 around a planet as they don't colonise worlds in our universe. Also, their ships are robust and their weapons are extremely powerful - a bit challenging for a neutral race, methinks.

A Galaxy Forge will be released with the upcoming hotfix. You should be able to play around with your own maps and scenarios soon. :)

I love this mod greatly, although for some reason (I've played this for awhile now) the shields not longer appear when a ship is hit. The phaser beam, torpedo, etc. will stop just short of the ship and hit an invisible barrier where the shields should be, though no animation shows. What's the issue?

Two things -

1: Awesome mod, really well put together and fun to play!

2: Why the Phoenix and not say, the Luna class?

OrionSlaver 40mins 41secs ago replied:

The Phoenix is a variant of the Nebula class seen in the show. The Luna class which I think you're referring to is from STO.

The devs have tried to be as canonically accurate as possible, and have adhered to the TNG time period as closely as possible. STO is set too far in the future for this mod.

DrakinKorin 5hours 57mins ago says:

im not sure if its possible but could you make a mod that uses only capital ships? I like the idea of an entire mod dedicated to smaller scale battles (in terms of numbers) but all ships can level up and gain veterancy.

keeping your veteran ships alive would be more important as the game wears on considering you could probably only build 20 or so ships.

I wouldn't even mind if it stuck to s specific era (say TOS) and each faction only had 6 or 7 ship types to choose from.

I think it would make you get attached to that miranda class you built at the beginning, while also making the battles a bit more tactical instead of watching to fleets of 100 ships just smash into each other.

I love the work you guys are doing with sins. this is by far the best mod I have ever played.
please keep it up!!

Haven't you heard of their new project, "Axanar Strategic Operations"? As far as I know it will definitely go in this direction, more individual ships from the pre-TOS era, two fleshed out factions (Klingon and Starfleet), smaller fleets, less available shipdesigns and more tactical battle. It will be glorious!

And if you don't want to wait until the end of the year when it's being released (if all goes well), you can still edit the files by yourself to at least decrease the amount of available tactical slots.

Hi, 1000-thanks for the fast reply. That's the best MOD I've ever played and..specially playing that Star Trek stuff is a lot's of fun.
But also looking forward for the new version.... just played a map where the Orion Pirates and some neutral units smashed my fed-ally .... and I couldn't help at all. Would be nice to get something like a "declare war on pirates" button again.
Thanks for spending so much time for all this!!!
