Right, bit bucket, I mixed those up, my apologies. I am definitely interested. I would like to be added to the private forum, though I am fine talking here, I am just looking for a basic guide for the first steps to building the project successfully. From there I want to experiment with what is there and see what I can put together.

I recommend using Visual Studio 2013 to build the code.

I will give that a try, should the repo work "out of the box" just by using VS 2013?

I think some of the themes could use a volume adjustment. Val, if you have the time, could you please look into lowering the masters in the following themes?

- these 2 just need to be a bit lower, a couple dBs at most:
Cardassian demo 2.aif
Romulan Senate.flac

- these 3 need more than that:
FS2 Tribute.ogg
Klingon Cry of the Warrior.flac
Klingon Music.aif


Also, while at it, if you could look into filtering the new selection voice clip for the Borg (and maybe the Dominion one too?), that'd be great!

Thanks in advance!

Hey, sorry for disappearing like that for a while, Things at work got crazy (there was an acquisition). Now that things are settling into a routine, I am still wanting to contribute. Though I have yet to get the project to build successfully, I need to get VS 2013 on my machine this weekend and give it another try.

Hey, glad you're back. ;)
If you need help upgrading to VS2015 or 17, LMK.
Or with anything else, ofc.

I have yet to get a successful out of the box build, I will try to re install the latest community VS maybe something in the installation was corrupted or has a version mismatch. Is there a specific set of build instructions somewhere that I can try following just in case I am making a silly mistake?

Hey jrs.
I just posted the instructions in the development forum. Can you please try them and provide feedback?
Thanks!

Bump

Anyone interested in creating the 3d ship models for the shipbuilding screens, or a combat engine, or more tracks for the civs? Or creating a map/scenario editor, or improving the civ specific texts, or whatever?

We could really use some help with those things, and anything else that is still missing.

The Kazon building (Defence Post) needs to be renamed and we need a new description for it. The current bonus is not used/implemented, and the Kazon are now a Raider civ. So we need a new name and a description to match a building that provides a +PercentRaiding bonus.

Same thing for the Orions, which are also a Raider civ. We need a rewrite/adjustment to the Orion Syndicate building, to reflect the +PercentRaiding bonus.

If someone wants to tackle this, it'd be great! Post ideas here, or send me a PM, or whatever is most convenient.
Thanks in advance!

Hey guys, just chiming in. I did the Java port of Birth of the Empires.
You could probably reuse our combat engine at some level (even extend and improve it if you like - I also was thinking about giving basic control over some aspects to the player). It's mostly suited for 3D though I only made a 2D projection of it because we have no 3D models. If I'd have time I'd even help you out, alas I don't have much. If you want to see how it works, grab BotE from itch.io and run it with --editor, then check the combat simulator.

Hey blotunga!
That would be awesome! Do you think it could be integrated into Supremacy?
Danijel is currently working on the 3D models, and he just completed them for all the major civs! He has done an amazing job! Some of those models are being tweaked as we found some issues, but it is looking great.

I'll try to take a look at your combat simulator, thanks!
Your help would be much appreciated, of course, if you could find some time.
