I am not sure if this is even against the rules of this forum but if it is I apologize in advance. I have however stumbled onto a game that I feel is..... well awesome & my goal here is just to get a little more recognition for the game from some other space rts fans. The game is called Starshatter The Gathering Storm, and let me tell you this game is amazing! It says right on the box that it was made to be moddable into ANY sci fi genre! (Star Trek, Bab5 , Star Wars, Wing commander etc..) It comes with its own mod menu in the game that allows you to easily disable and enable various mods and it comes with all its own modding tools.

Apart from its ease in modding the game itself is amazing and features what they call a "dynamic campaign" which goes on in real time even while you are in the menus and while you yourself are in a misson, making it theoretically possible to lose the war even if you have won all the missons you participated in.

It allows you to take on the role of a fighter pilot, starship commander or Admiral of the fleet in all FIVE dynamic campaigns. Each dynamic campaign is calculated by the AI and the state of the war at that moment in time so you will never play the same mission exactly as it was twice!

As a fighter pilot you can take of right from the carrier bay or starbase bay and approach a planet go into its atmosphere, fly around on the planet doing air strikes then literally climb back into space and return for a landing on the carrier or starbase, or mabey more space operations.

As a starship captain you obviously command a larger capital ship, but in a very cool unique way. You can pilot the ship yourself using either the keyboard, mouse or joystick, or you can let helm do the work and move by giving orders to the helm with nautical like headings. At any time you can give command to the first officer who will do a fantasic job and return with a "captain on the bridge" notification, which I personaly find cool.

As an admiral you are in command of the carrier or starbase and its up to you to send and deploy fighter wings, destroyer & frigate groups and massive cruisers into batlle both in space and orbital fights in the theater of operations.

The game has amazing graphichs and HUGE maps (takes about 40 min. in real time to cross)! Again I am simply trying to direct a little attention to this fantastic game in the hopes that someone will make a Star Trek dominion wars mod for it. If I have offended anyone or filefront in any way I apologize. Thank you for your time and consideration, Captain Julian Nova

Are you allowed to talk about other games here? or show some screenshots? I'd love to try and show some screenies but I dont want to offend anyone or break any rules. Also can anyone here anwser this question: "Can the Legacy models be coverted to a .3ds or .obj versions? If so... something could be done in Starshatter with them." This question was asked of me, but I dont know the answer, does anyone here? Thanks again.

Okay, I will answer you questions: Unfortunately there is now Importer for STL M3D files, so you can't port Legacy ships over to other games. Perhaps Moonraker can finish his Importer; if he was succesful you can import the model to Milkshape and Export to 3DS. What concerns me I do not know whether this is allowed, but I think the FF Staff won't kill you if it is not allowed. I personnally won't buy the game for the first, because I am quite busy with finishing the BC campaign and Modding Legacy.

Remember that porting stock Legacy ships to other games using the Importer when and if it is released is an EULA breach, and as such constitutes an illegal activity.

This is not however in effect if you created the ship or have permission from the author.

No, not to my knowledge. Porting to other games is alot different to kitbashing a model though.
