"Project Broken Bow"

Post by Trelane_of_gothos »

It was starting with a Star Trek Online Mod....but soon it was an ENT mod ^^
I had some time to watch all 4 seasons of ENTERPRISE and as the name "Birth of the Federation" sounds, i was thinking about an real "Birth of the Federation".
the impressive work of thunderchero, gowron, Spocks-cuddly-tribble, Tethys, and all others inspired me to do some work.
They have all my respect, because I have never get so deep into modding (today have not gone half the way).

I call it "Broken Bow" because that’s the beginning of launching the NX Class and exploring the universe. Also there was the idea to begin with flying around the Phoenix or the end of the WW III.
But soon there are so much ways to go, that i had to improvise. Some things might not fit into the history of ST.
Because of the fact, that I'm not good enough by half, it will take some time.

What I have planned so far (x=done; - = half the way; a=not yet):
  • In the game:
    - Bigger galaxy (you might have a lot of time to explore everything) (-)
    - New Music (x)
    - Complete new range-settings(a)
    - Moral (a)
    - New minor races (-)
    - New tech (a)
  • - Cardassians are now Vulcans
    - New Gui (a)
    - New Ships (or texture) (x)
    - New buildings (-)
    - Changing of diplomatic words (-)
  • - United Federation of Planets are now Humans
    - Perhaps new Gui (? a)
    - New Ships (or texture) (x)
    - New buildings (a)
    - Changing of diplomatic words (a)
  • - Ferengi…no idea…
  • - Klingons
    - New Ships (or texture) (a)
    - New buildings (a)
    - Changing of diplomatic words (a)
  • -Romulans
    - New Ships (or texture) (a)
    - New buildings (a)
    - Changing of diplomatic words (a)
Now I need some help and think you will have some good suggestions:
  • - What to do with the Ferengi, they are a known in ENT, but there is only one ship seen in “Acquisitionâ€

i'd love to see the andorians in there :) i thought they played a great part in ENT.

not sure about the fergs,it was a kind of " throwaway, amusing ,lets throw this in"type of episode.

i'm sure the temporal cold war would be a nightmare to implement....but good luck with it :)
for the world is hollow and i have touched the sky....and one day mickar.....one day.....one sweet day......HAS ARRIVED!! HAPPY DAYS :D

I say go with the Andorians or the Orions, since both were larger than what the humans had.

Here a little update of the fleets (they are not ready yet)

This is the vulcan fleet (need some more details)



p.s.: There is also a retexture of the D'Kyr (perhaps a little to dark):



This will be the Federation fleet (need also some details):


I think tomorrow the Klingons and Romulans be ready...

If you are going for "realism" and decide to go with Vulcans to replace the Cardassians i would suggest the Andorians to replace the Ferengi as they are rivals of the Vulcans throughout most of ENT.

BUT...

My personal preference would be to see the Suliban and the Xindi replace the Ferengi and the Cardassians as they were bigger threats throughout most of ENT. And have the Vulcans, Andorians, and the Tellarites as "powerful" minors. By powerful i mean they would have better starships and structures.

But that's just my opinion. :)

And i think this is an interesting idea for a mod. Good luck! :)

Here is my proposal for your thought, and would be how I would approach this if it were my project:

Vulcans replace Cardassian or Ferengi

Xindi replace Cardassian or Ferengi

Suliban as a minor Icy/Hostile towards Xindi; Icy to Humans, Klingons; Neutral to Romulans; Neutral/Uncoop to Vulcans.

Andorians as a minor Neutral toward Humans, Xindi, Romulans; Icy to Vulcans; Receptive to Klingons.

And the rest would be up to you and your prerogative.

Suggestions for minors would be:

Denobulans
Rigellians/Chelarians
Lorillians
Axanar
Xyrillians
Novans (Humans from Terra Nova colony) Icy to Humans
Akaali
Malurians
Nausicaans
Borothans
Valakians/Menk
Coridans
Eska
Dalakans (wraith woman)
Kantarians
Ferengi
Tandarans
Kreetassans
Mazarite
Risans
Paraagans
Quonoset
Agaronians
Retallians
Kiosians
Takretians
Arkonians
Dekendi
Tholians
Enolians
Antarans

Good luck!

EDIT: and the Tellarites lol :oops:

Very nice, I can somewhat make out some of those names like Nausicaan and Denobulan.

Will you support an English version of this mod? I would love to play it when its done :D


Also if you need any help with the mod, please feel free to ask (as far as any work you need with Voices and some Graphics (also when I have time, working on my mod as well))

As for the textures issue, no idea. Dr_Breen might know, or TC.

gee thanks...

because of the fact that i'm a german guy, it'll take time until i translate all into english (you might see it in my gramma and words i use, that english is not my specialty^^, although listening & speaking goes well)

i'm working on following modells:


VULCAN:

the future cruiser from "ENT: Future Tense"
(on memory-alpha they call it Vulcan Commandcruiser)



HUMANS:

Jupiter class
seen in "ENT: Storm Front II"

J-Class frighter
"ENT:Horizon"

Poseidon Class
"ST Legacy"

Conestoga Class
"ENT:Terra Nova"

Ajax Class
is like the miranda or centaur

Sarjevo-Class
"ENT:Dedalus"


ANDORIANS:

...-class
Doug Drexler shows some pictures abut an smaller vessel than the Kumari-Class

some free insperation-models ^^


KLINGONS:

there are some ships, like the D5, D4 and ENT-ERA-BOP

ROMULANS:

one ship that does not miss in their fleet:
the MARODEUR!
yeah, like this ship very much, but there will pics learn to fly until my MARODEUR will able to change its hull...


MINORS:

Axanar-Freighter
DENEBULAN Medic Transport-shuttle-bla...
ORION-RAIDER "ENT:Borderlands"
Xyrillian-Ship
...

soo...long way to go =(
the most work will be to create textures...

the new Vulcan & Andorian GUI has to wait.

The mod you are suggesting sounds fantastic. i have long hoped for a botf mod where i could play as the arrogent and logical Vulcans or the war-like, imperialist Andorians.

My personal preference would be for the Andorians to replace the ferengi, simply because appart from the Vulcans, the most prominent, non-human species in the ENT series were the Andorians. Also thier ships are very impressive and i would love to battle angainst them as the Vulcans and struggle in vast battles in orbit of Andoria. It would be a pleasure to reinact some of the amazing battles from the ENT series. To me, it would not feel right for an ENT mod to be created and have the Andorians take a back seat in the game as a minor race. They should be a majour race, it only makes sense.

I'm sure that your mod will turn out amazingly and i have already added this particular part of the forum to my favourites so that i can find out exactly whats going on with it. To make this wonderful mod even better, simply add the Andorians as a majour race, they will only enhance this mod and add to it in a possotive way. (':D')

Sorry, I've just read how long ago the other posts have been submitted. It seems that apart from mine the posts seem to end around January 2010. Almost 7 months ago. I was just wondering if this mod is still going ahead or if its been cancelled. Please reply, because this mod sounds brilliant and i really want to know if its still going.
