Introducing the latest mod to come to Legacy- The Aftermath.

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.

The tutorial half of the game has been designed to offer up and coming modders the info and encouragement they need to set out on their own mod. Whether they wish to create new game modes or add to the growing list of Historical battles they could create; the know how is there for them to go about and create their own gaming experience.

The mod half, with enhanced AI, challenging scenarios and much more push the foundations of Legacy to make it a different experience each time you play. With many new maps each with their own perils and wonders will see the Legacy engine in a different light. The re-designed interface that carries through every menu throughout the game is to provide a change of scenery to the generic look of the old stock look.

This first hybrid mod for Legacy has many more features yet to come. Additional info and progress can be found at the STL: The Aftermath forums that are being built up

Theaftermathmod.star-trek-games.com

The Aftermath has gone through a few changes and we have canceled all major stage releases (Stage II and Stage III). Instead, we will be having periodic releases instead of large scale releases. This results in shorter gaps between releases and more fine tuned content without the pressure of completing tasks for a major stage release.

-------------

To install Aftermath 2.0, please install to a fresh copy of Legacy. This is a complete install, no need to download any further material.

Please see the Readme's folder for more information or the install process

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.
