Are you planning on SOA again but for hw2 or a new concept idea for hw2. As personally i would love to see a epic battle between klingons vs romulans.

I can't speak for the TNG department, but i can speak for my own projects. Depending on what we can do once the RDN HW1/HW2 SDK release happens, I belive all our mods will get makeovers plus some new ideas for HW2. Im currently conspiring a third installment of the what i will call the BTFF trilogy. Using Movie Era ships, and set in a time 20 or whatever years after the end of BTFF.

If the SDK allows us to alter/change/overhaul HW1 ship slots, up texture memory, etc.. Things could get real interesting [img]smile.gif[/img]

The real question must be, can we have the ubermod? You know you start off in TOS or Ent era and research you're way through the next couple of hundred years.

And of course, it would take forever to download, even on broadband... ;)

I doubt it's possible, but wouldn't it be neat if HW2 let you make more than two sides? You could have Federation, Romulan, Klingon, Cardassian, Dominion, etc.

curious...in HW1 if you put a p1-3 mothership into a MP/Skirmish map...did it creat ships and actually work as an AI opponent? or did it just sit there?

im sure you see my idea.

if im right, when you create a new Skirmish VS comp in HW2 the computer basically drops the enemay Mothership into position and says "collect resources, destroy enemy"

technically, wouldnt it be possible to do the same thing for the other Non-player races?

of course all of this is theoretical...especially until the Mod tools comes out...

but theoretically...would it be possible?

See now thats the other thing being able to add sides and/or ship slots. Even if you couldn't do much else new at least being able to add or remove ship slots would open up the game so much.
