new mod nearly completed

Post by r--m » Wed Aug 25, 2004 8:46 pm

id just like to announce the release of my new realtrek mod. i think it`ll be released in a few weeks to months. it`s been beta-tested for one month now, and i think i`ll give it another one.

what the mod does: as the title suggests, the realtrek mod is intended to make the game more trek-realistic. some of the new features, like ship explosions doing damage, aren`t really new at all, but all together it`s a great mod, i think.

features:
-realistic sized ships, including borg( a borg cube has the size of a fusion cube, but there are no fusion cubes anymore)
-realistic looking ships (none of the models was made by myself, i`ve got most of the stuff from this site).
-realistic armed ships, meaning ships won`t fire a torpedo every 3 secs, but will fire 4 torpedoes in 2 secs.(after the first salvoe ships use their weapons just as usual); with a few exceptions there are no special weapons anymore. (most non-canon weapons were taken away). all ships can target planets.
-only one new race, the dominion
-and loads of small things

a few screens:

don`t worry about the german writing, the mod will be available in english at this site-if you want the german version, the german-beta-version is available at http://www.startrekgames.de/

I'll be keeping a close eye on this myself, but for different reasons.

I love the size of the ships. They seem more realistic.
Check out my Myspace page (still a work in progress but anyways)

this is an a2 mod.-i know there are still lots of people playing a1, so it would make sense making an a1 mod, but i`ve never ever did any a1 modding, i didn`t even finsih the campaign because a1 was kind of messed up on my copmuter.

I think I can guess Major's reasons, using ships without permission perhaps? Neway this looks good. Nice screenshots I might get the german version.

Your Borg textures are outstanding!


Mind if Future Tense uses them for ours? Yours is more Voyager looking than our almost TNG style looking cubes




Who knows, maybe I'll go up in the loft and find the coaster disk also named as Armada 2 to play it

i won`t mind if you use those textures, but remember i didn`t made them myself and i am using the stuff without permission. but i`m giving credits to the authors, of course.

i`ve got to apologise for that "using models without permission" thing.
in the readmes of most of the models i`m using it said something like "feel free to use this in your mod as long as you give me credits" - thats what i did. in the other readmes there was written nothing like that, but i used them anyway, without asking for permission first - i realized now this is quite impolite and i`m sorry. it`s impossible for me to contact every single model-author to ask for permission, but if i used something made by you and you don`t want me to use it, just contact me and i`ll remove your stuff as soon as possible.

Nova. You picking on me?? Now wheres my cattle prod. Looks like I'll be charging it up for some usage!!!! LOL

(and people say I don't posess a sense of humour.....PAH!!!)

Anyway, my actual reason, aside from the permission thing, which I tend to enforce in other ways (although it seems more and more modders are actually taking the time to READ ACCOMPANYING READMES!! which is a big plus), I do like to see how people mod the game THIER way. You'll be surprised how many styles of modding actually exist just for one game.

r--m. As for appologising. I wouldnt' have thought there would have been any need. Just becareful how you proceed and if your unsure of something, for god sake (and mine) ASK!!! 8)
