Description: Star Trek: Legacy - The Aftermath Mod v2.0 (A-D Addons)

Star Trek Legacy: The Aftermath is the first mod of its kind, a hybrid mod unique in approach and creation. One part mod the other part tutorial. This mod not only offers a unique playing experience but also encourages the average user to take their game skills to the next level-teaching them how to go about creating their own game. Now has A-D addons


The new release is our largest and most in-depth release to date with the core fundamentals of Aftermath being heavily modified to usher in the new Cycle 2 development phase. We introduce some new team members to join the Aftermath team (Barihawk, Skeeter and Trekky on our main team. On our Affiliate team we have Dontdrunkimshoot and Accurus). We also see the first fruits of our labour in a new field, textures. Aftermath 2.0 is our first release where we have ventured into the texture world and we have got some pretty impressive results.

Aftermath 2.0 sees the addition of over 150mb of new textures ranging from ships, registries, interface, weapons and more. With mass changes to glow, specs and dif maps on many of the ships to dramatic differences in textures many areas were changed in the texture department. Take a look at our new look Borg ships, our updated ENT era Federation and the new addition to Aftermath: Terrans.

Our script work continued at full steam too with the additions of two fully scripted game modes, Earth Romulan Wars and SFA. Earth Romulan Wars is the first of many campaign type modes which expands on the conflict between Starfleet and the Romulans. This mode gets new missions added every release. With SFA, its a training mode to introduce players to the various aspects of space combat in Legacy.

Another mode to make its way into Aftermath 2.0 is the return of the Survival mode. This mode returns after over a year of absence from the Legacy modding community and is just a small taste of whats in store for future releases.

We have yet again made more advancements in our AI to incorporate Advanced Threat Analysis (ATA). This means our enemies are far smarter than their looks suggest. Be prepaired to see enemies team up to take down stronger enemies and see everyone make more wiser decisions on who to attack. The enemy will only attack ships they know they stand a chance against, just hope you dont pick a Nova and find yourself going up against a Borg Cube... See advanced fleet tactics and tactical assignments (now based on weapon fire rates and payload). There are plenty more changes to our AI.

There are more maps now in Aftermath 2.0 with an emphasis placed on Co-op Wave this time. In 2.0, we have the first wave of the new cycle of Co-op Wave maps that feature enemies that switch out depending on era. The advanced map design principles of the Armada modes has been applied to Co-op Wave to take the mode to a whole new level.

Then we have something new for Cycle 2; Ascension. What is Ascension?? Ascension is the name for our interface. For the Cycle 2 releases, Ascension is a brand new interface system. Its much more than just a new look, its all new code too. As each release comes out, more features are added to Ascension such as multi-tiered menu systems, showcase applications and seamless transitions.

----------------------------------------
Known Bugs
----------------------------------------

-Additional speeds interface area

This area needs a new delivery method for display of the new speeds. The new speeds work, just it requires a new delivery method which will come in the form of the new in-game interface in the 1.9 release.

There are 5 forward speeds in total. The order are:

-RCS
-1/4
-1/2
-3/4
-Full

To select the new speeds, it in the same fashion as how you would normally select them. Just remember there are now 5 speeds instead of 3.

-Ship select area

When hovering over your selected ships, the sell information appears higher than the ship icons. Has no effect to gameplay at all. Will be removed for new Ascension features in 2.2

-ISS Enterprise

In the One on One mode, you cant play as ISS Enterprise. However you are still able to play as any of the other Terran NX ships (Renegade, Katana and Genocide). This issue only affects One on One, no other mode is affected.
