Don't be mad. We're on topic: How to achieve story faithfulness and feasible game balance in a SW/ST mod.

No, this is a poll about whether or not people like the idea. This is totally off topic

So basically this comes down to "tweaking up" the entities in the Star Trek universe to make it comparable to the one of Star Wars in order to have any semblence of game balance. Right? Sounds like it's going to take some straight out fudging of the ST specs to make this turn out the way people would want.

The alternative would be to "tweak down" the entities in the SW universe. And I'm sure no one wants that.

The fact we're talking about balancing SW and ST without degenerating in flame wars indicates that we are very interested in this mod. Lots of ideas here for the mod maker to pick out too.


EAW: Star Wars Realism v3.0 - a mod that improves the realism, balance & gameplay from the default EAW Space Combat & Space Skirmish. Introduces a FLEET! Deathmatch mode.

EAW: Tactical Command - a Space Skirmish mod that seeks to bring tactics to EAW. Also introduces Scenario play.

What ship is that?

The nacelles and engineering section are too thick though no matter the fed ship. Try making em thinner.

If you're new to modeling, then that's a good start!

Just try getting some good still pics of Star Trek ships and working on scaling, dimensions and detail.

Cheers!

The first ship is good, and I don't recognize anything till the enterprise D which I think the warp nacelles are two long. Other than that great work.

I think ill corect you on those.

The 1st two Enterprise models are Galaxy class, and the last 2 models of Enterprise is the NX-Class (ENT series)

oh and ZeJudge, IMO, when you taking your screenshots of your ST models, it might be best to name it with the CLASS of ship it is, since their are a dozen names a class can be christened (Like USS Enterprise, USS Voyager..etc).

For a bit of help with choosing your ships for the ST side, id suggest going here

My choices would be to add for sure:
- Sovereign
- Intrepid
- Defiant
- Prometheus

Well, the NX-Class is only 225m, and the Soverign is nearly 685m, so big difference there in size; nearly 3 times the size., plus the NX-Class has 6 Decks, A-F, while Soverign has 24 decks.

THAT is why trekkies are a big help here. They can give a lot correct information pertaining to many things, like what i just mentioned.
