Progress Update in precentages, and update on what we are shooting for

Posted by on

Hi again. I have been asked how far we are progress wise, so i will list the progress:
Coding- our coder says he is 50% done. He has made codes for ships that arent even modeled yet, so cheers to him for working above expectations.
Models- probably in the 20% range i have no clue though. From our modeler that is busy in college he said 10% done, but our other modeler has been working hard....that is why i say 20%. We are still working out a bug where all our models are really small and green ingame.....if you can help us that would be great.
Maps- 10% mabe i am only gonna work on land/space maps once we are further along with props and ect.
Textures- only what we have from Trek Wars. I am shouting out to the community WE NEED A SOMEONE TO TEXTURE FOR US...FOR WE CURRENTLY DONT HAVE ANYONE SKILLED IN THAT DEPARTMENT

so there is the overall progress.

Our goal in this mod is to bring a star trek mod to the moddb community using EaW/FoC (yeah its a FoC mod) that will cover all eras as accurately as possible, allowing everyone to enjoy this mod. It will include:

1. three "eras" that will cover all series fans have come to know (Star Trek: Enterprise, Star Trek: The Original Series, and the third will be a combo of The Next Generation, Voyager, and Deep Space 9 because they all are within the same time period.)
2. Many factions, we will make 3 playable most likely, and add in other factions according to what we need to do (ex: ferengi, cardassians, ect. other races)
3. units will be as canon as possible, but if we cannot find a canon ship to fit a role, we will look for non canon ships and ect. other units. the most non canon aspect will be the land vehicles due to lack of known land warfare within the series. More non canon units will be seen on factions like the borg, cardassians, romulans, ect. so we can make the game balanced due to the large ammount of known federation vessels vs. alien vessels
4. Custom GC maps, 1 for each era that will have accurate ships, species, planets, and hopefully events to go along with each series. Skirmish will be set up to have each tech be 1 era. so that means in space, there will only be three tech levels, and each tech upgrade will cost more and take longer to complete.

If you wish for anything else to be done please contact me or the Star Wars Empire at War Mod Fan Group with your suggestions or questions.

Thanks for all your support,

About the tech levels.
Maybe the Borg could research them faster (the Borg are incredably adaptive and can have billions of minds working on a problem at all times) but there should of course be a penalty for balance. Maybe they could have reduced ship speeds on the GC map or slower build times during a tech upgrade (because of the colective focusing on that rather than other aspects of the collective)if that's possable. Failing that just make it a bit more expensive but faster maybe?

Of course this is all under the assumption the Borg are playable...

i am unsure borg will be playable. i can say that the federation WILL be playable lol. i will list factions that i THINK will be playable:
Federation(for sure)
Klingons (TOS faction)
Vulcans (Enterprise)
Borg (TNG/VOY/DS9)
Dominion (TNG/VOY/DS9)
that is all i know of so far.....but more will be said later once we get some more progress....right now we are just worried about finishing models/codes and stuff, then we will worry about what we are going to do GC and SKIRMISH wise

In regards to Non-canon ships, maybe take a look at the ships in Star Trek Legacy? Those were rather good and were assigned roles similar to what you'll need

That hasa list of legacy ships. You should be able to gather enough info about their apearance just by searching them on google images.

Weapon positions and facings arn't given but I'll hapily look them up for you in game.
