I agree on sizing.
Hmm, they are using our menus? Are you sure?

That good, huh? :wink:
They're probably still using the old/current Fed one?

Hmm, I'll make the same comment about colors and brightness as before :twisted:
The Rom UI doesn't have much in the way of circles, or any rounded shapes for that matter, so this might look a bit "off"?
It looks cool, mind you. Just wondering i it actually fits their style and color scheme.

Also, the images in the buttons are not particularly clear as to what they represent?

BTW, did you manage to get that white ring of sorts back in the Borg's GCM insignia? I thought it looked cool.

the color scheme is based off the movie Nemesis https://drive.google.com/open?id=1c2AUe ... NXFee3MbIO

The Borg and Dominion soundFX have been re-done completely, and now they are much louder and clearer, with the Borg sounding much better (IMO anyway). Also, Borg wav file confirmation3 now says "We are one" instead of "Complying".
As for the Dominion.. I actually preferred the old Dominion voice, but I was unable to recreate it exactly. It's a shame the old one isn't loud enough (my tries to amplify the old Dominion speech ended up distorting the files too badly)

Hopefully the new ones won't have any issues and they sound as good in game as they do on my laptop.. and we get to scratch this off the to-do list

Thanks B.! Will add them to the next release. The Borg ones do sound really cool. I agree about the Dominion ones, but these are also nice.

Should we redo the civ selection voices for the Borg and the Dominion, BTW? They do have some background noise.

Uploaded all the soundfx to BB, including the new ones.
If you guys could test them and check if there are any issues - volume levels, wrong filenames \ sounds not playing, whatever - and report back, I would appreciate it!
Thanks!

Yep, sure. I can do the civ selection voices soon..
I think the new voices should say "The Dominion" and "The Borg" instead of "Dominion" and "Borg". I just think it would sound better, coz right now, the voices shoot so fast you have to press the button again just to understand what it said.. I'd actually love to put "We are the Borg" as their selection voice :mrgreen:
Or should it be "The Borg Collective"? hmm..
What do you think?

Edit: I just realized that it does in fact say "The Dominion" and "The Borg" right now.. but they're both really quick..

Yes, they are. I simply edited voice clips I got off the net and clipped the relevant parts. Not a very professional job... hehe.

I think the others say the LongName of the civ (The United Federation of Planets, etc), so the Borg should match that, yes. "The Borg Collective" would be best IMO, for the reason I mentioned. They already say "We are the Borg..." in the 1st contact VO.

Thanks!

Just for kicks I moved the buttons in the Fed GCM, and it actually doesn't look that bad.
Apart from the missing buttons, that is.

Looks not too bad. I would love to clean up the LCARS and update the icons. The Klingon menu I feel is too large. I like its design but its just way to large. I think we should consider trying to keep this "3 buttons on either side of the controlling race logo" theme. and just overhaul all the menus

The icons in the Fed GCM are really good for identifying the buttons, IMO, maybe we should have similar ones for all the civs?
When we have all the menus, I guess we could take a look at the Klingons and Cardassians - but I really like them, I think we should keep their overall look.

Hi,

New here. First off, thanks for all the hard work you guys have done. I have been playing the game on and off for the last couple of months

I was wondering if there are developer instructions for downloading, compiling and running the game as I would like to poke around and see how it all works?

Thanks
