Requesting a Revision to UMD 3 (I Hope this Gets Noticed)

Post by KtKPlay »

Hello there.

I have been playing BOTF for a long time now and I have a request for a change. For me the gameplay is not only about the major races but also about the MINOR Races as well.

I would LOVE to see a slight change to the UMD to allow or add it so ALL the MINOR Races showed up/appear that are available on the Map.

I think it adds alot of color to the game. Perhaps this can be Implemented on the UMD Large Map version?

I think this change would be very easy to implement and would add a Ton of Fun to the game itself.

Thanks

you could personalize UDM3 for yourself using UE...if you wanted that..I'm not sure what you mean? you want to be able to see where all minors are from the beginning? or have all the ships in game from the beginning, regardless of if the minor has been selected in that map?

That's awesome..


It is also nice to see "The Greats" /Thunderchero and others still around the scene. Im glad there is still some life left here.

Here's another thought.. If Mike Strobel is not going to; finish BOTF2/Supremacy then why doesnt he just pass it all over to Thunderchero and his crew? at least then we'd get a release.....


Just a thought... thanks for answering and yes,,, I will look forward too/wait for your map.

Point of Clarification: I was not sure if i was clear on my intent in the original post or not so I will elaborate more on what my intent was.


Some games which you start have betazoids but not bolians, other games you start have both betazoids and bolians but not the Ktarians so why not create it so there is a way for you to have EVERY single available minor race that is there in the game appear all at once on the same map?

I mean... in the shows and movies all the races exist right? why not in the game? I also find that the major opposing races tend not to do as well unless they have some minor races under their belts.


It might be that those who were working on this game and website long ago are now gone and playing Star Trek Online.

Regardless people, tyvm for your hard work and time.. I myself still play this game and I would not be able too if it weren't for the contributions which you all have made

this is a give and take problem,

With large maps you can get 30 minors every time but they will be all on left side of map.

So to get them spread out better the value used give a chance for all minors to be present but most times it is 28 or 29 minors on map.

only other option would be to have the biggest map at 40x30 or not play large maps.

mentats canon maps are found in a folder in install location of UDM if you have latest version.

you would need to rename and add to UDML folder to replace the save you want to overwrite.

Thunderchero/ or whoever can answer this please...


I have tried your suggestion for the canon maps and I am not proficient with this/using it


I have tried to follow your instructions but the save files say 0 kb and I need this explained in Captain Dummie Talk please.


Thanks

It sounds like you are looking at wrong files or you do not have the most recent version of UDM 3.0.1c

first go to your (install path) UDML\Dominion Wars scenario saves folder select the file you want to use I guess you want to play a single player game. So open "single player saves" select the race you want to play and open that folder. inside that folder is the saved game you need to use for that race. copy that file to (install path) UDML and over write the current saved game. This is easiest way if you no longer care about any saved games you had played before.
