And here's the last of the terraformed volcanic planet images.

Thanks Iceman!
Glad to read there is room for extra ideas.

BTW, while at it ;), black holes could produce quantum filaments or smaller singularities, which could be harvested for further purposes when the necessary
science has been invented.
Thank you for the ideas!

Re BHs, I have something like that in mind for the Demon planets :wink:

Thanks for the images. Have you tried them in game, to see if there's a noticeable difference?


EDIT> split this into a new topic.

I've tested some of them, here's some more images with better contrast in order to give them a little more noticeable difference.

Unterraformed jungle.

BTW, the first image could be used as a super-earth, a gaia-type earth, a parallel planet somewhere in the galaxy.
I recall the Magna Roma-planet looked like the earth in a book worlds of star trek or worlds of the federation (a star trek book, it had rough maps of planets).

Thanks Axis!
If I could ask you a favor, could you zip all the files with the updated names (only the ones you posted here - terraformed and unterraformed versions) please, and send them to me?
That would save me some work.

If there was enough filespace in the attachments section, say 3Mb (not too much these times) I'd be glad to give you the files. I mean this page is a little outdated in it's restrictions considering the file size (filesize is growing everyday, everywhere).

One more suggestion comes to my mind, a barracks, or even better, a garrison! A manned ground-combat building, many could be built. Labor pool used to man these buildings for extra ground combat strength. Different names depending on the empire, Cardassians might have a (union) troop garrison, federation a (starfleet) elite force barracks, klingons a warrior training camp, romulans an (imperial or praetorian) guard academy , dominion a soldier unit for example.

Colonies do have garrisons now :wink: They're not yet fully functional, but they will eventually. I really need to go back and finish that code, it's been ages...

There are "barracks" buildings of sorts already too, only the Feds and Cards don't have one IIRC (Blake suggested the Remans for the RSE some time ago). They increase combat strength (can't recall if size too, but I think that size might be affected only by the "soldiering" skill) of Garrisons. They have an energy upkeep, so in a way they are activated by labor.

Another idea just came to me : Why not implement the Ferengi into the game too! as the sixth race, it sounds almost like the idea is from STARGÅTE :wink:
And of course they'll make an episode if not a movie about the sixth race then right? :grin: :grin: :grin:

BOTF 2 should have 10 major races to play, but I do understand if the game has already been set to be played with 5 major races, they are actually a better combination than that of original BOTF, dominion does make more sense than the ferengi, dominion is more like a major, not something in between major and minor like the ferengi sometimes do feel like.

Sorry, was away for a few days.
Well, the plan is to have as much stuff for the Ferengi as possible in the game, so that anyone might easily mod them in as a major race. The downside is that with the Ferengi in, there are 3 empires in the alpha quadrant, which unbalances things a bit...
If you play with random homesystem placements though, it's not an issue - if you don't mind playing non-canon.
