How about a race that can change in different ways?

I'll tell you what I mean. If the Federation were taken over for a period by the Romulans early in their history then broke free it stands to reason that they might have some similar technologies later on.

Or what if a dictator ruled a future federation, or the greenies, or even if the US and USSR survived into the star trek era?

So how about a race that becomes more and more customizable as the game progresses. At the beginning two Federations would be the same and at the end they could be very different.

Perhaps one possibility would be tech stations with multiple options and only a few hardpoints that resulted in certain ships, tech stations and weapons being available and others not.

What do you think?

Cheers

That's a great idea but I get a headache even thinking about how to create it.

I find that it is best to write down a story and then pick out the viable elements to use in a real-life situation.

Therefore, I propose that everyone who is interested should write a brief short story (or just a paragraph, if you can) detailing the alternate history. From the ideas displayed, you can cull the relevant information required to make it into the A2 universe.

Of course, there are other methods of doing this...this is merely my method.

Yet another promising poem cut off by the Collective....sigh

Well really i dont think it can be done because you can always build more of something or another youd have to say make 2ships able to be built and once one is built the other disabled and then build around that say you have

1x defiant build this and you would end up only being able to build a warship yard and warbases

1x scout only be able to build science ships see where i am going with this

but that tech wow i mean i can edit me some tech i can write tech for days besides odf.s tech is my next best thing and i couldnt even begain to think of away to write it up thats just right now im sure sooner or later ill come across away to do it but it all lays in the tech boys
