First of all, this game is developed in German, so the first release is possible only in German, I'm sorry about that. Possible future releases could be available also in English.
This game is a small project which is by now 2 years old, it becomes better with every new idea. The older versions have been in 2D only, like arcade games.
Now based on the NemoX-3d Engine, STAR TREK - BATTLES OF THE DOMINION WAR is now available in 3D, this changes it's genre from arcade to RPG/Strategy/Simulation.
At the beginning of the game you can select one from the 3 Ships of the Alliance; Federation, Klingons or Romulans. Here the campaign begins, the story includes between 15 and 20 Missions. At the end of each Mission you can buy a new ship, upgrade ship modules or train your crew.
You may think now this sounds a little bit like the simulation game 'Starfleet Commander', and I have to admit there are some similarities, but the game-play itself is more like a strategy game.
This project is in a early status, which means that only the graphic-system and the basic controls of the ship are working proper.
There are new developments regarding the game concept. There will be more support for modding Star Trek - Battles of the Dominon War, in addition there are plans for a release of a Map-editor and Tutorials how to mod the game.
The future development process is dedicated to provide you a game for easy modding, adding your own content will be a easy task to accomplish.
The following changes have been made to Star Trek - Battles of the Dominon War since the last release:
- Models and textures of the planets have been optimized, the shape is now more spherical and they show a more detailed landscape.
- All ships are now equipped with new damage-textures.
- A crew-system has been integrated into the ships, it affects directly the ship its abilities. For example a talented Engineer would stock up the ship its energy supply, while a Navigator would speed-up the ships movement.
