  • Birth of the Federation

    Anyone notice how much alike this game is to MOO2?

    Just started playing it again, and while its fun I find I get bored with it quickly. Anyone else have this problem with these sorts of games?

    Have you tried any of the mods available for the game? I find that the Dominion Mod is the best.

        God I hadn't realized until now how many of my favorite st-gaming sites have gobe the way of the dodo!

        Anyway, here's where you can find the Dominion Mod.

        Don't mind the site, though. IIRC, the mod was only made in English.

          Thanks I'll check it out when I get some time. Hopefully this injects some freshness to this game.

            Cool, a dominion mod.

            Still like the Spoonheads though.

              Dino, I tried downloading it and it seemed to replace some files when I unzipped it, but so far I have no evidence that anything has changed. The readme in the zip file was somewhat cryptic in how to install it.

                These people would be able to help you better than I would, Garth. They're also working on a mod of the game themselves.

                    There's a 3d patch on that site as well. What's that about?

                        seriously, it is exactly as he described it... really a fun game, cool music, nice features.... BUT:

                        1. annoying micromanagement
                        2. annoying ship movement
                        3. annoying combat arrangement.. you always go on hunts for enemy ships
                        4. almost impossible expansion / stabilization of borders when encountering an enemy... the whole outpost concept is so limited...

                          Doh! One of the bad games I have, fortunately it was given to me (I should had been suspecious).

                          It's so completely stupid, after I played an incomplete game as the Federation I wiped it off my HDD.

                            You have to be a desperate trekkie, like me.
                            What amazed me is a BotF forum, and the fact that it exists. And the fact that there are mods available! Whoa!

                            The worst thing is the fact that the Federation is so overwhelming. Think about the ships! The Sovereign can wipe out an armada of Cardassians!

                              How can you play the mods when the sites you posted either have them in German, or don't have them at all (File not found, Page cannot be shown etc.)
