I just finished reading the three John Vornholt Star Trek books: The Genesis wave Books 1 and 2 and Book 3. Now...would it be possible to use one of the expanding wave weapons in the game to create the Genesis wave..now when this wave hits a ship the ship is destroyed and if it impacts a planet and goes through it the planet is stripped of all life leaving it to be colonized...now the original Genesis Device was meant for terraforming..so this will essentially be the same thing only essentially genocide wiping out an entire planets population in secs... Any one have any thoughts on what shockwave weapon would work the best?
I didn't make it!
Your best bet I think is to modify a standard Artillery Torpedo to do the job.
You might try looking at the energy wave equipped to the Halo station in Ultimate Dragons Forerunner mod. I think it just killed crew on all units across large portions of the map, but you could probably add a damage effect to it, so it would destroy ships and decrew planets. Here's a link to the mod: Forerunner Race, Star Trek: Armada 2 Downloads, Star Trek: Armada 2 Full Race Hope this helps :)
