Maybe this is just " wishful " thinking. But the possibilities can't be ignored. I'm a big fan of the ST:Voyager Elite Force/Ex pack. I was wondering if anyone thought of merging the (2) Games. Even in concept alone. I know the scripting for the games are totally different. EF's Quake 3 engine would compliment the BC game I think. Impossible? perhaps not. Until a few weeks ago. One could not " Warp " in the Quick Battle section. Now I have picked up a mod called Quick Battle 2.2. That not only allows you to warp to any system in the BC verse. You can also command and name the ships of your task force.

I'm not a Modder. But I thought this was a good ideal to bring up. Having the capability to beam a Boarding Party/Away Team on a BC ship, Running threw the decks of a Federation/Enemy ship. With a EF Quake 3 engine. This will bring Bridge Commander to a whole new level.

Any Modders out there, what do you think of this ideal?:uhm:

Its not possible, atleast not for multiplayer and defentaly not with the q3 engine.

Becouse the way the engines work, they can never be "merged" into a single game, everything about them is funadamentaly difrent. The onlything I can think of doing would be to "beam" your characchter onto another ship buy using sets like the bridge is.

Why this is unlikely to ever happen 1) ALOT of new info would have to be written for the game to give crew members the ai to fight a boarding party, let alone carry weapons. 2) I'm not sure how big a set can be before it gets to big to be usable without a god computer 3) in multiplayer you can't change what set your on, mainly becouse your not on one. so it would only be usable in QB or SP 4) And the trek reason not to do it is! THE CAPTAIN DOES NOT GO ON AWAY MISSIONS, AND DEFENATLY DOES NOT GO ON BAORDING PARTIES!

TOS constantly has a guy who takes 7 years to finish the word "Hello" running around in spandex on sets made out of cardboard, acrylic paint, and masking tape. Also, he constantly tries to glorify the United States of America but if you've heard of World War 3 in the 2050's you'd know America was nuked to bits. Nothing against Kirk, but there must be something seriously wrong with him. -Off that topic now-

Now onto EF and BC. It's implausible. You can try to create your own game but again, impossible. Or write to a game company like activision and see if they can gather Totally Games, Ravensoft, 30,000 lawyers, Activision Executives, and advertising gurus in a big giant room and work out salaries. Welcome to Corporate America.

My purpose in posing this question, was to see if someone could make an "extention pack" for Bridge Commander, like Elite Force. Where one could explore one's own ship. So I don't think "the Question" is so far off base. I have been applying modded games from off the Net, for almost(3)years. So, I have seen the "impossible" become reality. Just by making a suggestion or proposing a concept.

Since the mods are Freeware and available to all, the only time you would have a problem with the "Major" companies you mention. If you didn't give the appropriate credits to any game under thier label that would be modified.
