It's Mtheumer again! I won't be as long-winded as usual(I hope). I just wanted to know if anyone has come up with the idea to consolidate TOS, TMP, and TNG into separate "Total Conversion" packages? Each package having all that eras' ships, bridges, uniforms, and star systems. With all the great mods, it seem a natural progression.
An interesting idea. Would you have ships from the series only there or not? Who would decide what is the best in a number of ships and how would they be balanced?
Not an argument against your idea, which I support, just some small issues to consider when creating these modpacks.
here's another thought on that, if you could have all the "total conversion" packs compatible with each other, and have each come with it's own mutator so you could switch between era's without having to unistall then install a differnt pack. youre ideas pretty good though.
Why not just one, large, rolling Expansion. Of course..each one has their own twists :cool:

Just some ideas :nodding:
WOW!!! sum GREAT IDEAS:bows:!!!! seriously, they sound excellent!!! but then again lol easier said than done!!!:uhoh::cofee::uhoh:
I have to agree, these are some great ideas and not really that difficult for an expert modder, which sadly I am not. To answer Milleau, I would suggest using the Starfleet Museum as a guide for the TOS era, with natural progress of refits and advancements that we know of for the other eras.
