Hey Iceman,
I don't see why it wouldn't be possible? The logic is fairly well segregated and can be taken out. Most of it is in two classes here: https://bitbucket.org/sarkanyi/bote-lib ... ?at=master
You can check CombatShip.java and Combat.java.
The combat itself uses a 400 unit sized cube (a ship's position is a unit) where the ships (and torpedos) move around. It already uses 3D coordinates so a with a little effort it wouldn't be all that hard to integrate.

I'm not sure when I could help, but if something is unclear, ask away and I will respond eventually.

Danijel could use some extra help with texturing the ship models, so that he can have more free time to work on redoing the models.
Anyone up for the challenge, please let us know. The more help he gets, the faster it gets done.
Thanks!

Anyone up to writing the Encyclopedia entry for the Remans? I'll do the same with the Romulans and Remans as with the Dominion and Jem'Hadar and Vorta, showing all their descriptions on contact.
Right now I'm going with the Memory Alpha text (in Races.xaml), but if someone could write something in the sme vein as the other descriptions, that would be great.

Some really cool models for Federation (14:22 21:30 35:33) and Romulan (20:04 30:14) shipyards, starbases and orbital batteries!

I've added a details dialog when you build a station, with the station's image and the corresponding soundfx, but we need the details text - something in the same vein as the colonization one (you know, "you have to take really good care of this new colony so that blah blah blah").
Anyone interested in helping with that?

Should different station types have different details texts? I mean Outposts and Starbases, and even Science Stations and Transwarp Hubs, since all of them have different purposes.

Since the Borg are a special "empire", it'd be cool to have them get more personalized SitReps. If there is someone out there that can really "incarnate" the Borg and write some texts for them, it'd be awesome!

Some SitReps only have a summary text, the one in the Summary/SitRep end of turn list.
Some have a details window, with a header (same as the summary text mentioned above), a details text (a longer description), an image and a soundfx.
The needed texts mentioned below indicate which type they fall into.


[SITREP_BORG_ELIMINATED_HEADER] - the summary/header text for when the Borg are eliminated from the game

[SITREP_BORG_ELIMINATED_DETAILS] - the details text for when the Borg are eliminated from the game; something about the menace being eliminated?

[SITREP_CIVILIZATION_ELIMINATED_BORG] - the summary text for when a civ is eliminated by the Borg

[SITREP_CONTACT_WITH_THE_BORG_HEADER] - the summary/header text for when a civ encounters the Borg

[SITREP_CONTACT_WITH_THE_BORG_DETAILS] - the details text for when a civ encounters the Borg



Improvements to existing texts needed:

[SITREP_SYSTEM_ASSIMILATED_BORG]
System {0} assimilated, all {1} {2} inhabitants have been linked to the Collective.

[SITREP_SYSTEM_ASSIMILATED]
Our colony in the {0} system was assimilated by the Borg.

[SITREP_SYSTEM_ASSIMILATED_DETAILS]
We have lost all contact with our colony in the {0} system. All {1} colonists have been assimilated by the Borg!

[SITREP_CIVILIZATION_ELIMINATED_BORG]
The {0} does not exist anymore.



It'd also probably be nice to have different texts for when a civ destroys a Borg colony (by bombardment), and when a civ subjugates a colony (which results in its destruction too).

And maybe have a different summary text for starvation - doesn't seem quite right with them :mrgreen:

Here's an example, though not a very inspired one...
