Announcing BOTF Reloaded............

Post by Bryan » Tue Oct 31, 2006 5:02 pm

Ok as you all know the original BoTF was plagued with so many bugs and glitches it became impossible to complete. I have decided to remake the BOTF, and make some changes to combat this problem.

One of the major problems was the fact there were too many different types of starships and stations, and the AI simply couldnt cope with this. So now i will be limiting each era, ENTERPRISE, TOS, TNG, DS9/VOY to 5 ships per era, and says 5-7 stations per era.

The mod will not be a ironing out of the current BOTF, but a complete revamp, new ODFS, BASE FILES etc.. Although some models, will remain the same unless i can put together some better ones.

The mod will feature the usual races:

FEDERATION, evolving from NASA right through to United federation of planets

KLINGONS - Starting from the rise of the first emperor, right through to DS9

ROMULANS

EARLY CARDY'S evolving right through to DS9 with the dominion

AND I MAY POSSIBLE ADD THE BORG, although this is not confirmed.

The mod will features a new movie, new main interface, GUI, etc..

All of the above is easy enough, but I would like the publics opinions on what ships should be included for each race, for each era, for example:


federation early era - saturn IV rocket, lunar lander, space shuttle, + 2 more suggestions

starfleet (enterprise era) - nx-01 etc etc etc

tos/tmp - constitution, excelsior, miranda, etc etc etc

tng - galaxy, phoenix, excelsior refit, miranda, etc

ds9/voy - galaxy refit, sovereign, intrepid, defiant, akira, prometheus

. REMEMBER i want to keep this mod as cannon as possible shipwise, anyway lets hear your thoughts.. 8)

Oh and thanks to Darklight for giving me some insight to the new name ;)

well how about cameo canon ships? Like the Nova Refit, Enterprise-J type, Aeon, and Wells classes..they would make either good hero units or powerful bonus buildable units ( at a very high price of course)...just some thoughts

I have an idea that may or may not be original...
I've seen a lot of mods with weapons, ships, races, and time. But, something that I feel is lacking in most of mods are:
1)a killer soundtrack:
Babylon 5 orchestra is nice, music from other star trek games is nice--but what how about some of the best themes from horner and goldsmith (not the fanfare or the pukey poop that is used for the opening sequence for every series). I got what I consider the ultimate track for my personal mod and would be glad to share it with you.
I also want to note that the music for the FT trailer is tight and would like to see more of that in a mod.

2)maneuvers:
weapons do this and that--but the ship sits there unanimated during an attack run. Wouldn't it be cool to see the 'Picard Maneuver', worf ordering ramming speed and the ship smashes into the enemy, stuff like that?

Maybe it's a bad idea?

Your most welcome Bryan. Oh and there are some ship designs that could be helpful to you in the Future Tense 2 board, they are not mine. They are all from Sci-Fi Meshes. I liked the name BOTF Reloaded, was rather fitting as well ;)

So, is this an A1 or A2 mod?

The original BOTF mod was for A2 and some of the posts I've read indicate things found in A2 and not A1.

Then why does it say A1 in the description for this sub-forum on the main AFC forum screen?

I have some sugestions for the federation early era: The "Mercury" and "Gemini". There is also "Skylab".

Never mind
