blurb23Very nice screenshots, Kenjar! If you're looking for more freighter models, you might want to try the ones used in the stock SFC series, and Armada series in addition to just BC. I'm a little confused as to the joystick movement. Is the game going to be 3D? or is the joystick just there for the basic forward, back, left, and right, with the buttons doing specific functions like raising shields?

The game is fully 3D. I will eventually add joystick support and a camera mode that will allow you to fly like X2 or the X-Wing games, I will also include a camera view that makes the game look more like SFC and a free-camera view that creates a Bridge Commander feel to the flight. Eventually the screen icons will create an effect between SFC and BC. There are no plans for a bridge model or crew though, that would just make the game far too big.

New STT website is now uploaded at www.gamersol.co.uk the forum will be back up eventually, but I only have one pair of hands.

also it would be nice to get like special contracts with perks like access to a more powerful ship, or even being able to acquire some dominion war wrecks like a galaxy, or nebula, vorcha, k'vort, dtai, romulan warbird, keldon, as perks to doing those contracts, possibly flushing out maquis, smugglers, helping aquire more territory or alliances. and helping out vessels in distress say maybe a sov is under attack by 4 warbirds assist then commandeer. or even being payed for a tow or rescue ops. all i mean is that there are more soverigns in construction so eventually a chance may present itself (author willing) to seize the oppertunity and the ship. be it derilict from battle or "spoils of war"

I can see this has caught your imaginaton :) , yes eventually I would like to have a game that in depth but it will be years until it's at that stage unless I find some more programmers to help out, or unless I receive donations at www.gamersol.co.uk so I can purchase more advanced tools to speed things along. While top-of-the-line military ships will never be sold to traders, there is always the chance you might come across a spinning wreck that you can salvage. You will however be able to purchase old decommisioned military starships, I hope to add the option of buying the Enterprise A after it's decommished after Star Trek Six, of cause it won't be repaired fully so it's going to cost you alot of money to get it back up to scratch, but even if you do, don't expect to be able to fly into klingon space and pick a fight with the best they have to offer and expect to live though it the constitution class was decommished for a reason. I also hope to add other conditions into the game that affect the trade market, for instance in the TOS era, Dilithium crystals will be very expensive and in limited supply, buy TMP they will be cheaper, by Post-TMP dilithium re-crystalisation machines will become common place driving down the price of raw dilithium, by Post-TNG dilithium crystal will be replicatable effectly removing the need to go mining, you will have a choice at this point if your trade has been dilithium at this time, you can either buy a dilithium replication machine and head out to the unexplored, low tech worlds and sell dilithuim to them, or find something else to trade with.

Hi all, update on the project, I've decided to start the game off in the year 2250, which is the same year that Kirk enters Starfleet academy, let me know what you think of this!

That seems good. Though, having the game go through more than a century could be a bit hard to incorporate (ship designs, weapons, wars, etc.).

Hmm, seeing as this isn't BC. Moved.
