The Legendary Generations mod is dedicated to enhancing all aspects of Star Trek: Legacy, with a primary focus on bringing to the game the most canon gameplay experience possible. We have made numerous graphical and gameplay enhancements, including a completely reworked stat system for the entire game, new textures and models, new menu systems, and new special effects.
Our stat system and gameplay is unique, we have established canon values for all systems, for all ships, in all eras, or as close to it as we can get within the confines of Legacy's system. We have only had to make very few sacrifices for the sake of gameplay, most notably in the cloaking system, and we have achieved balanced gameplay with canon values, and there are even further gameplay changes and enhancements in the works. All of the races in Legacy are balanced (or as close to balanced as a work-in-progress can get), and each race has its own unique playstyle, based on how those races have been portrayed in the show. That playstyle evolves through the eras, incorporating the newer technologies and capabilities available in each successive era, but the base styles remain essentially the same. We have also added new races to the game, including the Cardassians and Xindi, with more to come. When we're finished, each race will have its own individual playstyle, each a part of unique canon gameplay experience.
We have also greatly improved textures across the board, improved and added new weapons sprites, added new explosion effects, as well as a large collection of canon music and an initial selection of canon sound-effects, with a lot more on the way. When we are done, each race will have its own music, and every weapon and system will have canon sound-effects, pulled directly from the shows. Our emphasis on accurately recreating each ship's appearance is very high, and when we have finished, our ships will be as close to their canon appearance as our modelers and texturers can make them. All in all, when it is finished, The Legendary Generations will be the closest thing to the shows and movies you can get without pulling out the DVD collection.
