File Description

It's always a delight to receive a new keys of Legacy release. It's not too heavy on the downloading and the amount you get in the file downloaded is quite simply, value for 'money' so to speak!

This time around, we're not getting quite as many new features as we've seen in previous releases, maybe because Alex has almost got there in terms of unlocking, but here's a list of features which are included in all releases so far, including 1.3:

Changes in Version 1.0: - Save/load Game(only works properly in campaign mode) - All missions - Planet Conquest - Free Camera(can be difficult to use) - Orbit Planet Command

Changes in Version 1.1: - Fleet Maneuvers(original Coding by Genty, UI revised by Alexraptor) - Game Lock(lets you close your multiplayer games from others)

Changes in Version 1.2: - Patch 1.2 support - Developer Tools(by Gal) - Hero ship bug Fix - Pre-Release Ent Cube Textures - Pre-Release TNG Cube Glows - Guard command(implemented by Genty) - Escort maps* - Fleet Maneuvers removed due to incompatibility with 1.2 patch. - Fixed "Hint" for planet conquest which stated to hold down "A" to bring up the radial menu.

Changes in Version 1.3: - Docking with neutral shipyards - Fleet Maneuvers re-added - Added files for the map editor that were missed in the previous version. - E3 photon torpedoes - Infinite respawns added

I really do hope to be writing another file information page for a future 1.4 release but if that day never comes, I'll be quite satisfied with the unlocked features which are available in this release for many days to come!

-Michael.

Installation:
Extract the contents of the zip file into your Main legacy folder.
Make sure to back up the original files, in case you don t want to use this mod.
____________________________________________________
IMPORTANT!:
In version 1.1 I put legacy.xml and legacymissions.xml in the wrong folder. if
your using version 1.1 then delete the .xml files in the campaign folder.
because they should only be in the Campaign\Legacy folder.
or else version 1.3 wont work properly.
____________________________________________________
Note:
Key's of Legacy is an ongoing project, so as more hidden or disabled options are found there will be new versions. Also, please note that this mod is intended for users of Stock version of legacy.

Turns out the perceived "Fleet Maneuvers" incompatibility with the 1.2 patch was just Legacy's screwy controls. It works fine when one manages to issue the order properly.(which is extremely hard due to the controls but that cant be helped)

*The escort maps are really supposed to be sorted under their own game type,
unfortunately i have been unable to figure out how to enable it. so to get around that i set the original maps to be available in deathmatch. but Since they are scripted they will work as they should.
In addition the escort maps are pretty demanding, so low end system users should be cautious.

As by request by some I have decided to include the Developers Tools in the 1.2 Release. Thanks to Gal over at Legacy forums the tools menu can be toggled on and off by the new "Wrench" Icon at the bottom of the main menu.
The "GUI Viewer" is also fully functional also thanks to Gal ;)

The Pre-release Ent Cube textures had an incomplete Alpha Map which I completed based on bumpmap, glow map and specular map data.

Docking with Neutral shipyards, Is to say the least a controversial addition. However I do believe it was once intended in Legacy. I discovered that one already could dock with them simply by selecting one of your ships and going to the tactical overview and simply just clicking a neutral Shipyard/Drydock and repair. So I simply wrote that function back into the command ring ;)
NOTE: While it will not break the second mission in the game, it will be possible to dock before sending an away team over to it. Possibly one of the reasons it was left out of the game.

federation photon torpedoes were made standard to all eras as they were seen in legacy at the E3 preview and pre-release footage.
Pro's:
- Matches the light glow on the hull
- High quality(ENT and TNG torpedo textures were of lower quality, probally due to having been made in a hurry before release)
Con's:
- Lack of variety
If you don't like it you can just skip the sprite folder.
