A small file containing a hotfix for some glaring omissions and errors that made it into version 1.0. More to follow as we receive more reports.Most critically...
It's been over 2 months now since the first release and many of you are itching for the next one. We have been hard at work finalising everything from abilities to small icons and over all the mod looks and feels a lot more polished. Here is a breakdown of what's been done.
Abilities in most cases have been reworked and added to near enough all ships in the mod. Titans now have the proper ones and the Borg also have many more to get you in a spin (Dodecahedron). Heroes also have had abilities added to them, for example Captain Picard can now call in ships for assistance though at a cost of some resources.
Abilities have also been reworked such as the Nebulas shield penetration ability which has been toned down. The L6 now has a repair ships ability and the Dominus has a shield restore ability, as well as many more for all the frigates not just for the Feds any more.
Possibly one of the most tedious and most anger fueled discussion causer, balancing has been consistent on an almost nightly basis. The Borg have stuff done to them, the Romulans were redone a bit because of stupidly invincible cap ships (BANE!). Also many economies have been re-worked to be more reflective, so Fed still have the best trade but the Klingons have better resource extraction rates. The Borg have also been made a bit weaker but a bit more manageable so they are a more enjoyable race to play and fight against as the Cube has been pushed back in the tree and the Trapezoid has been made the first one.
Iconography and Sound
Has mostly been finished, apart from the Borg all will have there research buttons replaced to more trek style and all the little ship icons in the main game have also been mostly replaced and the when you select a ship a small flag of your race will pop up in the center. Also the research menus have there little pictures replaced and the colours have all been changed in the backgrounds to better suit the races. New sounds have also been added and the fighters now have voices. When you click a station they'll have a unique sound when you press them. Furthering the systemic removal of all stock assets within the mod.
Hopefully there won't be a news piece after this and soon the 1.0 release will be out in the wild. Then it will be full work on the expansion which we'll have more on a later date.
