Many thanks for your responses!
@Landris: Its been a crazy time for me and my family, but now it's time to resume this. I'll check out the mod you suggest, thank you!
@rjord1 : No, I had it as a link to a Drop Box folder, which I foolishly clean out recently and it must have been part of the culling without me knowing it. Ack! No big deal though, with thanks to Overlord015 I now have the full release v0.2 Alpha files. None of the construction files, but they're very easy to make. The thing I'll never be able to get back is the ship and race developments that I'd done since that release, but that's ok - I didn't get particularly far with them so not a big loss. Easy to cover that ground!
@Kingah : (Blank Stare) These are the files I'm looking for... Move along. Move along.
Thanks for this! I will look through them and see if there's anything in there that I don't already have. Probably the reason why they got confused is because I based this mod on the work done as part of the Star Trek mod. So many of the files were in fact from there. I had not yet got around to fully replacing things like races, etc. That comes next.
I'm just playing through a game of it now to re-familiarise myself with it all. First issue I came across is the race issues (which is why I moved to race editing early last time, as I recall). Specifically things like not having enough capacity in Star Ports to build Construction ships (so further development not possible)... stuff like that. I'll make a few quick edits of obvious things like that to make it playable again (temporary edits until permanent race creation is done) and keep playing through to re-familiarise myself with it all.
As I recall, the spreadsheet of development I had was a google sheet, so I'll have it banging around in here somewhere so I can go straight back to where I left off, pretty much.
I also have a much better method of planning out and producing the research trees, so that will go much better for me than it did last time.
All-in-all, glad to be back on this project... I'd forgotten how much I enjoyed it!
Thanks again guys for your help getting these files back - especially you Overlord015!
