Quick status update

News

Greetings captains!

This is just a very fast status update about the development of the mod. I was silent for months because there is not much to tell yet. I'm still working on the 3D models for the Imperial Morning expansion.

he Federation is about 70% done, the Romulans are at about 80% and I started to work on the Klingons but they are only at about 10%. Two things slowed down the progress significantly. I finally figured out how to make the game to handle shadows better. Previously some sharp edges were smoothed out where they shouldn't have been. Now I have a solution but it takes more work. The second is that I originally thought that the Motion Picture era has very definitive colors, so every starship would use the same color pattern. How wrong I was! Even the greyish hull of the Federation ships differ drastically from modder to modder, and if I simply port the models to the mod, the fleet looks like a ragtag pirate band. Not to mention the Klingons where it is difficult to find two ships with similar color palettes... Doing minor adjustments to the textures takes a lot of time as well.

I also started to draw up some new features I plan to introduce in the next expansion. I hope it will work out. I give you one hint: One of the planned features involves the method how you build Borg ships in the original Fleet Operations game.

That's all for now.

See you around!

I have upped the difficulty..the Romulans still don't build much past the first era...they built a few second era ships before they stop producing. 2 AI Hard Roms vs 2 AI normal Klingons vs Me as a lone federation....I get the entire klingon attack as the Romulans barely do anything.

Ran into a little issue with the Romulans as an AI...they built the Sabinus, Veronas, Tyrannus class ships from the Rom Earth war....then they stopped building entirely after they lost those ships. They just sit there until they are wiped out. The Klingons an the Feds fight tooth and nail everytime

Have you tried the 1.5.1 version? Apparently something wen wrong between the process of archiving the files and downloading it package because many of you had this issue, but it seems to be fixed now.

I have the same issue, but only if the selected race is federation.

Nobody else reported this issue, and I can't reproduce it either, even from a clean install. Can you be more specific, what EXACTLY is happening?

No it isn't. You just have to research all the technologies necessary to get it.
