  Zero Hour Update: 08/06/07 - Mods
  Posted by: Transmission on 06-08-2007 @ 12:41 - Source: Project Team
This News Item has been viewed 3,652 times
Well, with a Month or two (or three) without an update for Zero Hour, I believe the time has come for me to make a long delayed post in regards to the project news.

Now, the past couple of months have been somewhat slow in the project production. However, they are still moving (though somewhat slow). That does however seem to be changing. A new storyline has been decided upon, along with the entire project being made a single download (rather than three separate ones).

Those species included, at least, those playable are:

  • Federation
  • Klingon
  • Romulan
  • Cardassian
  • Dominion
  • Breen
  • Species 7
  • Species 8

The last two species are going to be non-canon, and are going to have a huge impact upon the storyline. This storyline is going to be based within the Alpha & Beta Quadrants, even though the Dominion will be involved (because of the Wormhole).

The story revolves around three species of alien, from another Galaxy (name of that Galaxy, yet to be decided upon). These three species at some point in their past ended up in a long three way war, which quite literally lasted for centuries.

One of these three comes to our Galaxy, escaping the violence, leaving the other two species to fight it out. That was centuries ago, and now, those two species, after having destroyed most of their galaxy, have found their way to ours. The main powers of the quadrants named above, must bond together in an effort to defeat this incursion.

There is much, much more too it than I've mentioned, but I'm not releasing that information yet, nor am I releasing the name of the 3rd species (the ones who travelled to our Galaxy long ago). They will remain a secret until I deem it necessary to reveal them.

All of this is to happen in the mid - late stages of the storyline. Before this however, there will be the continual bickering between the major powers as there always are. Again, these details are not yet to be released. smile

That would be everything anyone would need to know in regards to the new storyline, and the release. That being, because I have compressed this together, the release of this project will be a while, though I hope that, once released, this will be a project to remember.

On the model front, we've got ourselves a fair few Cardassian & Klingon models (most courtesy of Avon, a few by myself and Lord_Trekie), and some new Romulan Designs, these courtesy of me. Gavin is working on some more Breen Stations, hope to see them soon.

Now.. I can't really show anything that I haven't shown already. Why, well.. because some things I don't yet wish to reveal, and others aren't complete. Those images shown below, are simple shots, of various things you've no doubt already seen. I trust you'll enjoy. smile

As always, I am looking for people to help, and am still in need of a fair few models. Any sent are greatly appreciated. That would be all for now. I'll report next when I have something to report on. wink

Am I seeing things right? Are those TWO distinctly DIFFERENT Sovs??

Both very lovely. Not fond of the United Mushroom Kingdom of Planets' space station, but everything else looks top-rate. Especially the space-utility vehicles (Intrepid and Nova class-- I refuse to dignify them with the term 'starship').

One last question-- Is that a new Excelsior model?

#1 / #3 - You probably saw the News literally just after it was posted. We (when adding a News Article, or File) are required to do the Screenshots after. Therefore, sometimes a News Article, or File may appear (for a short time) without any screenshots. There is a feature to hold the item until screenshots are uploaded, but I find it wastes time.

#2 - Thank You! smile

#4 - Yes, those are two different Sovereign Classes. Though that is old news now LoL! The one (front) is the prototype Sovereign (edited the textures myself, and they came out wonderful). The other one (behind) is your standard Sovereign.

As for the Excelsior model.. Which one were you referring too? The standard Excelsior (picture 4) is the same model from BI:VR, though I've poly reduced it a fair bit myself. The Refit (picture 1), is the same model, but has the 'extra' bits put on by me. So essentially, they are new models, but they're not if you get what I mean...

Looks good only the Utopia Planetia Stations textures or the mesh itself looks like there is a bit wrong shading on the dome parts.
The mod itself is not my favorite Trek era and the models are to high poly for me frown

The station as Terradyhne says, needs possibally some work, maybe even a model redo, but still keeping the textures.
Everything else is fantastic as usual.

Urm as for these three races, the andromeda galaxy is closest and larger than ours so it could well just be that, as for what the races are....would the Alorians or something like that Guinan's people, possibally be the third race that escaped?

#8 The Norexan Picture is just there to represent the two different versions. They wont look like that in game. Do not worry. smile

#10 The Alorians are not from another Galaxy, but another part of our Galaxy, are they not? Regardless, I'll likely be making these other races up.
