Hello Imperius;

Yes, but not with the Version 1.0 release. My plan is to have at least three maps
with the Version 2.0 release. The Alpha, Beta and Delta Quadrants. We will only
have two maps with the first release. One of which will have the Sol System as we
know it involved.

With Version 2.0, it is currently my hope to have at initially at least two playable
scenarios. One that can be activated if certain 'events' in the game triggers it, and
one that will add a number of 'additional' small empires if the player so chooses. I
have only recently come up with this idea, so I have yet to discuss it with the Trek
mods team. But stay tuned, and thanks for your interest!

DO you have an idea as to when you plan to Release 1.0? obviously no hard/specific dates (we all know the trouble those bring) unless you do have one and are on track for it.

oops, just saw your Reply to imdahman's post on the previous page... really hope nothing bad pops up to delay it, be great to get it sometime this month... i wish there was a way to proper do all 3 Era's in 1... do you think you could get the game to switch out default ship Images at specific points in the tech tree to sorta "upgrade" the era? along with a small story pop up message thing upon a Era advancement... or is this not possible with DW:U?

I am eager to play DW:U but I've been using your guys mod for years and going back to Vanilla DW is not as enjoyable of a experience.... i been spoiled by your guys hard work lol... IMO the games much better with your Trek Theme and Mods.

I Eagerly await your release so i can play DW again, and give the guys my thanks for all their hard work on this project along with your and others long time commitment to it.

Thank you for your support and very kind words Carl4243!

We're getting closer and are in beta testing now. However, there is one other (MAJOR to us) update
we need to have done before release. Elliot is currently on a well deserved vacation, but we should
have the needed update shortly after his return. So our version 1.0 release won't happen until a bit
of time after update 1.9.5.6 occurs.

Concerning your other question, no, we unfortunately cannot (through the game at least) 'switch out'
specific shipsets during the game. There are workarounds that you can used to change the ship images
during the game manually though. I'll try to remember to address that in the README1st file for the
theme at release (please remind me if I forget...getting old and senile! ).

There also might be a way to possible do it via an event set through the Game Editor. I'll inquire
about that when Elliot returns. He listens intently to some of us 'serious Trekkies' on his dev team
(a LARGE shipment of Vintage Romulan Ale via Igard always helps as well if DATA doesn't intercept it).

Serious Trekkies... really?
He will not listen to us Jedi...

Data? Do you need a fleet and a few able bodied Jedi to help do a couple of raids?

Too bad you can't replace a space creature with a giant tribble.

Why can you not? We have replaced the creatures with Crystalline Entities, and Star Trek Space Amoeba... Why not animate a tribble?
Not exactly my cup of tea for the game, but hey, it can be done if you want it...

Now you are probably asking what a Star Wars dude is doing with Star Trek Crystalline Entities and Space Amoebas in a Star Wars game?
Star Trek ships and monsters are cooler looking (though I do like the Imperial Star Destroyer)...
But do not tell IGard or ehsumrell1 that... I will never live it down. And I will not be able to look Padme or Leia in the face...

Too late TJ!

DATA, Igard and I would each like a shipment of your BEST Correlian Ale IMMEDIATELY sent to us directly from Coruscant!

OTHERWISE.....

You're right TJ! Guess I'll have to rely upon one of my most tried and true warriors. She has
proved her worth by single-handedly dispatching a Reman bodyguard at one of my Birthday Bashes.

When will this fine mod converted into Universe version?

Hello Brainsucker;

As it looks right now, the 'Trek Team' should have the Picard Era mod out very soon! As a progress report, due to career and family restraints, Igard has honored me with full permission to take possession of his Star Trek modwork which includes his Picard, Archer, Kirk, and Spock era mods. I have formed and manage a "Trek Team" of sorts that include some VERY SERIOUS TREKKIES! We are in the final stages of tweaking and testing for the release of Igard's The Picard Era. My target date is before the first of August. Hopefully, there will be one more patch/update from Elliot upcoming before then that addresses the counterintelligence issues in the game at present. In the meanwhile, I'm finishing the Galactopedia pages and other file-work while our team members are working on the remaining details. One of the team has just finished finalizing the BORG, which was a bit of work to get as close to canon as the game allows us. Another has provided the Resource changeovers and Racial Traits. We are also fine-tuning stats on (at present) 520 Picard Era Race Characters.

I'm taking a path on these similar to what my buddy Paul (Haree78) has done with his Extended Mod (He's been a fantastic trailblazer - Thanks Paul!). Our mods will be made for a Star Trek format but retain both the essence of a classic Star Trek game (canon, without the Shakturi/Mechanoids) and also be totally playable in any of the other DW formats Elliot has provided. Pirate, Pre-Warp, etcetera.
This way, regular updates and/or bug fixes to just executable and system files won't break the mods. In addition, every player/modder can still modify the theme further to their liking as well. So if you dislike the DW UI, for instance, you can use Das's or dabble with it on your own. The biggest delay has been awaiting the last update that allows the GameText file to be read from the theme. Now that's being tested.

Sorry to give such a lengthy response! But I figured it was time since we are very close now and I've
been so busy on it I haven't given a progress report in a month. So put in your orders now for your
shipments of vintage Romulan Ale while supplies last!

There are a few to a certain extent Hewwo. A good balance in Version 1.0 with the original game icons. There may be more in a following version if the team decides to. At present we want to make the mod able to be updated without breaking, but also still be adaptable and allow players to individually mod their own 'twists' to the theme as well.

I put all the files as instructed. I went in and changed the Theme and setup for Federation, Human and named my empire. left everything else on defaults and when I go to start the game it says cannot start this game on the galaxy generating screen. How do I fix it.

Hello HectorOfTroy;

If I recall correctly, Igard did not have the Mechanoid and Shakturi races in the mods races folder. I'm
at my business office at the moment, but when I get to my home office, I'll look in the mod to see.
If they are, you should be able to by just rechecking the box. But I'll also check the bias and other
files. Let you know in about an hour or so.

And if they are not in, what do I need to add from Original DW to have them in?

Hello again HectorOfTroy;

I looked in my archives and found out that the Mechanoid (a.k.a. Ancient Guardians) and the
Shakturi races are not included in the Shadows version mod.

To answer your other question, adding them can be done, but it involves modifying files in the
mod and adding the race files, testing balance, etcetera. Something that I unfortunately at this
moment do not have time to walk you through. However I am attaching the DW Modding guide for
Shadows. Hopefully, with a bit of studying, you'll see how you can add the Shakturi and Mechanoids
to the mod. Hope this helps!

Confusion at times is normal Hattori!

This thread was for the "Shadows" version of the Star Trek mod.
