When first loading the mod I thought "Sigh, yet another weapon mod", I soon came to realise that I was wrong. This mod is so much fun! I had such a great time playing this wonderful mod. Weighing only 14 MB, this mod takes you back to the original Star Trek nostalgia, the one with which it all began.
It offers a total of 12 new weapons. All the weapons are based upon those seen in the original Star Trek television show. New weapon effects have been added to make it more realistic. The first thing you will notice is the stun setting on the phaser. It freezes the player for a couple of seconds, just enough time to get the hell out of there :) Check the readme for a list of the other weapons. More realistic weapons can also be found, Colt .45 and a machinegun. Never noticed them before, guess they must be from one of Kirks many time travel missions.
Every original model has been replaced with a new custom model. The detpack has been replaced with a device which emits some kind of radiation. Once getting infected with the radiation, your screen will go blurry and the walk keys have been switched which prevents the player from walking in a straight line :) You'll notice when going through a transporter that the blue effect has been changed with the original gold effect.
Another addition is the tricorder which strips the color codes from the players in "realtime", nice! When switching name, the tricorder can't identify the player who changed his name until the person who holds the tricorder switches to another weapon and back again.
The Borg are transformed into miniature beings. Very fun to play with miniature models! Apparently a whole scaling system has been placed to define the characters height. Spacestation K7 created more skins which are worthy of being checked out. Download them, invite some friends, have a TOS party and get drunk :P
Be sure to check this out. We will probably be seeing this mod on servers!
TOS WEAPONS 2 Version 1.0 7/1/05 Features -------- TW2 offers a total of 12 TOS era weapons, a phaser with a stun setting and a fully working Tricorder! The mod also contains Specialty Matches based on TOS episodes, such as "Day of the Dove", "A Piece of the Action" and "Amok Time" and also features TOS powerups and some new surprises taken directly from TOS episodes. And finally, a brand new scaling system has been added to HM, where you can now define your character's height and width. To utilise this new feature, a small fix pak for some of Toonloon's bots has been included to take advantage of this, for example Chekov is now short, Apollo tall, Spock slim, etc... and look out for a very small threat from the 24th Century!

And now the acknowledgments... Thanks go to AFAdoomer for building the very first TOS weapons and contributing lots of models and textures and some coding to the mod. TheSnerd for finishing off the code he started with TW1 and adding many new features. Thanks also go to Neural Link who laboured long and hard on this code. Ambassador Petri provided some excellent models and textures for the mod and along with TheSnerd, making a terrific launcher for the mod. FishDS9 was invaluable as a researcher and sound finder extraodinaire for the many TOS sound effects in the mod. Marnix MiXed Donders deserves a big thanks for helping with some shading issues as well as the wonderfully psychadelic Medusan Ambassador effect. Extar special thanks goes to Chaos for creating the installer package for the mod and thanks to Andorian for taking up the excellent work done by HorckDude and helping to make K7 the fun place it is. -------------------------------------------------------------------- Have fun with this mod.
