What improvements are needed?

What do you think needs to be done to stock game?

I think the system upgrades research is stupid because you can just go in and destroy it and ships loose there power. That could never happen in real life.

upgrade life support ect to level 2 + 3

The repair rates are a joke.

Ship and weapon stats in general(i.e. A2 weapons do several times the damage of A1; Galaxy stronger than Sovvie; Galor and Keldon as battleships; and so on).

Assuming for now that we don't want to add any additional ships, one could consider the following graphical type improvements.

1. Improved weapons textures (something along the line of Rake's weapons textures would do nicely).

2. Race specific phaser flares. icewolf132 recently released a little mod for this purpose that could be used easily in A1.

Not sure if the torpedoes and pulse need something similar or not.

3. Race specific shield and shield effects.

4. Better explosions. The ones in the latest version of fleet ops are quite nice.

5. Texture improvements on the stock ships and/or stock ships being replaced with their counterparts from A2. I have basically done this with a mini-mod for the Klingons and it doesn't look too bad. However, the animation on the shipyard and advanced shipyard was lost becuase I don't have MAX.

6. Custome loadscreen. The one in Achilles Alliances mod could be used.

7. Race specific build buttons.

Just some quick thoughts.

FahreS @ -=WiCKeD=-HARKER over at A2 files has released a running lights mod that you might want to consider incorporating.

Some new menu screens would be nice too. And while we're on a wishlist, how about some new Desktop icon options for A1? The stock ones are so 8-bit it's not even funny.

A new in-game targeting icon/pointer would be nice too. Something a little less TOS and a little more Nemesis.

It's mostly the little things that modders tend to overlook. Those of us without artistic inclinations can only wait and see if anyone comes up with this kind of stuff. :P
