Re: Game Gussing Game

Yes, you're right. It's ancient, I got it in the year of the lord of 1989, if I remember correctly. It was my first Star Trek game ever. Maybe some elder member here to recognize it?

Re: Game Gussing Game

Thanks Thunderchero. The board does not seem to like my screenshot, must be something personal.

Owning an english "Starfleet Command 2" anyone?

Why I'm asking a stupid question that is not BotF related? Cause I am looking for the english voice.zip from that game. I need them for use in a little project. So far I built in the german voices I ripped out of a localized version, but thats sh** to have a partial english/german game. I want to ge...

Re: Yet another Franken-Monster-Stein-BOTF-Whatever

It will not solve much though. From the player's perspective I mean. All I need to do is free some pop, assign them to turbines, power up the SY, buy the ships (which is instantaneous, and I can buy as many as I can afford), power down the SY and assign the pop to their previous jobs. All in the sa...

Re: Yet another Franken-Monster-Stein-BOTF-Whatever

Never heard of that game. The descripton sounds like there is a high level of detail. I will try to obtain and test one once I have spare time again. I actually tried with a separate "mining" industry, but found it was too much micromanagement necessary to keep them in balance with the needs, so it ...

Re: Yet another Franken-Monster-Stein-BOTF-Whatever

I view the BotF base industry as a penalty because, when using the first industry you get only around + 5 total industry, the second brings + 10 industry. Using the first structure is penalized in some way. I just don't like that. The Mining structures improve industry in that they augment the metal...

Re: Yet another Franken-Monster-Stein-BOTF-Whatever

Hmm, and how does it make more sense to have a system producing 90 industry without anyone in industry.... I had to decide to penalize just using industry, or not penalize anything. The latter appeared more applicable to me. The basic production is only 1 point per 10 pop anyway ( modified by syste...

Re: Yet another Franken-Monster-Stein-BOTF-Whatever

BotF's way makes more sense, really. I disagree here. In BotF, using a sinlge labor at industry would give me some industry MINUS the 5 free points, but using the same labor in research would give me research + 5 free industry points. Why should I get more total points when NOT using them in indust...

Re: Yet another Franken-Monster-Stein-BOTF-Whatever

The system basic production is "on top" type, not "instead type" like in BotF. (at least it should be ) In BotF, the first industry manned replaces the 5 free points, making industry inefficient the lower the numbers used. This is not the case here. If you don't use your labor you may get 5 more Cre...

Re: Yet another Franken-Monster-Stein-BOTF-Whatever

Well, you can always paint the starmap in "Interface.bmp" just black. The stock ships are good as long as technology does not evolve too much. AI empires will refit their ships with the weapons of their best weapon tech sub field, so they will achieve the best increase in firepower. Remember, weapon...

Re: Yet another Franken-Monster-Stein-BOTF-Whatever

What BOTF races background would be appropriate? I have a slight problem determining the spottability of empires due to a defect in my monitor eliminating the bulk of the blue spectrum. Good idea separating the races by type. The dominion actually is a "secondary" empire, as the rest of the currentl...

Re: Yet another Franken-Monster-Stein-BOTF-Whatever

So, the ALT+TAB thing is up and working, after a brief headache. Thanks to Flockes input. You are my hero. For the taxes, I never assumed the entire populace to be actually working. Given the fabric of industrial societies, only a small portion of those millions would actually be able working in top...

Re: Yet another Franken-Monster-Stein-BOTF-Whatever

Thanks alot Flocke, for this DDERR information. It's difficult to correct a thing if you have the hell no idea what is causing this.
Now I know what's going on and can work on fixing it.
Big, huge thanks for that.
