From this week onward, I'll be posting a weekly update with a little bit of information on what we've been working on for Ages of the Federation: The Four Years War and talking about some of the things you as a community ask about, either on the news piece from the prior week or indeed as comments on the prior week's development stream.
Development with the Dev's: Live!
Every Wednesday at somewhere between 7.30 and 8PM UK time (use google to work out the time where you are) we'll be running a live stream on my YouTube channel and via Twitch! Feel free to subscribe and follow using the links below:
We've been running the weekly development streams for seven weeks now! Feel free to take a look at the video and the attached playlist embedded below and watch as much or as little as you like. It's sometimes a little dry, sometimes amusing and sometimes informative - we hope you'll enjoy it!
I won't go through all the changes we've made so far this week, as we've got 7 weeks worth in the videos! It's masses of changes and I don't think any of you will want to read all of that! Instead, I'll include a short bullet pointed list of things we've worked on in some of our streams below. Please comment, ask questions, give advice, tell us your opinion on the direction of the mod, hell you can even argue about Star Trek: Discovery if you like!
- Reworked the home screen and player setup screen;
- reworked planetary and gravity well system;
- the addition and fleshing out of the Federation, Romulan and Klingon playable races;
- the addition of limited research (still early days)
- the addition of neutral vessels defending worlds;
- the creation of unique particles for some of our abilities; and
- the creation of abilities themselves.
Catch up with us next week for another brief news piece where we'll talk in a little more detail about the work we've done on the mod for the last week and be out with a fresh development stream showing some of the changes!
Join An Awesome Discord!
The Stellar Parallax team (AOTF and STA3) has made its home in CoreyLoses' and GulSurvives' community discord. It's a discord run by modders and gamers for the modding and gaming community! We'd love to have a bunch of the Trek community join us in there - we're outnumbered by Star Wars fans and we need our community to wave the flag (CoreyLoses is the lead developer of three amazing Star Wars mods: Thrawn's Revenge: Imperial Civil War, Thrawn's Revenge: Ascendancy and Fall of the Republic). There's a link below, jump in and jump into the discussion with like minded people!
That's all from me this week. Hope you've enjoyed this little update and I also hope that you enjoy the weekly streams even more!
