Finally, something I have ever dreamed of, came to reality: A working, proper made Star Trek Mod for one of my favorite games of all time, Homeworld 2.
While there are still some issues with this version, release Beta, such as slow downs on the map screen, or while zooming in and out, or even at the startup of the mod (I'm getting runtime errors, no matter what I do, but possibly that's just because I'm using the german version), this one is close to perfection in relation to ship selection and the overall quality of the used models and textures and even sounds.
What isn't that perfect and apears a bit disapointing for me, are a few details in relation to the balancing.
There are technologies, that you can research in almost a second, the Nebula class vessel builds in just a few seconds as well, making it theoretically possible to make a "Nebula run".
Besides that, when in a battle, the computer voice is telling you hundreds of times that "Ships are under attack", which get's really annoying after quite some time and is possibly triggered by some weird reason.
Another good, but although disapointing feature is the soundtrack of the mod. - Yes, there is original Star Trek music in the mod, but is it necessary to hear the main Star Trek theme of TNG and one of the movies that often? Aren't there much more subtle and not so generic tracks from almost dozens of OST's from the movies, or maybe even orchestral tracks which are just a good match to the scenery? Maybe.
So after all, I guess I'm just very picky and I don't really think that such a great work deserves that much criticism (<- is that actually a english word? =O_), but with some minor tweaks, a bit of going in to details, this will be what you really want as a Star Trek enthusiast, hands down, and s-loads of Kudos for this master piece in the making.
(And yes, as I've mentioned, I know that my written english could be much better, but I hope you get the point of what I'm saying. ;)
A must try mod if you're a shooter fan in multi OR single player games. You need Arma 2 (FREE version will work!) + Operation Arrowhead. Details dayzwiki.com/wiki/index.php?title=How_to_install_DayZ
When you have the latest official versions of the above you then have 2 jobs :-
1. install the mod worrom.com
2. install the latest Arma Beta dayz.sykotix.com/arma-ii-beta-client-install/
In play you have 2 options - team up with friends or go solo. For the latter head North and avoid the towns. The following kit is essential :- hatchet (for chopping wood), hunting knife (for chopping up animals), matches (for lighting the fire). Then you can eat meat for energy AND to top up your blood level. Of-course you will also need bandages, water and a gun with ammo.
The BIG difference with this game is you have ONE life. Experiment for the first few lives then try and survive as long as possible. Who will survive the longest?
Getting on servers is a bit tricky which makes teamplay difficult. If you have difficulty getting on a server (e.g. no luck after 5mins) just try another.
BEWARE. This is a very addictive adventure. Even in this very early build this mod is a classic. Not GOTY material as it stands due to lack of content and harsh PvP play. Play it now!
It's a pretty good game but you die fast and you have to heal your arms, chest, eyes, and whatever but it doesn't heal your health you got to do it sepret you can heal your health bar, i like the game and all that but not the healing part.
Great mod with great gameplay and one of my favorites. I simply love this mod. Even there is only minor story provided in v1.0, some bugs, glitches, doesn't make this mod looks bad. You have successfully bring a zombie apocalypse feelings and atmosphere into San Andreas, which is very rare (For me) to find a zombie mod like this. Great work!
The game claims Linux support and the engine is listed as Flash but when I tried to install the demo, it checked for Adobe Air. I tried installing the last supported version of Air for Linux but the game would not run on it. As such, the game doesn't run on Linux.
Do not purchase this game if you are using a Linux-based operating system.
