Loads of New Animations

I thought I'd update you all with regards to some of the new animations, but to even attempt to bring order to the chaos made my head hurt. So I did the next best thing, and decided to let you make sense of it.

Upgraded StartApp

The old StartApp simply doesn't handle the requirements of LCARS 47 anymore. To display all the relevant data and still reserve space for future expansion, more space was needed.

There's now better support for the custom name and registry fields under "Starship Configuration", with an option to load the config files into your favorite plain text editor.

An "Ambience Configuration" panel has also been added so you can select from a number of ambient sounds to play to make your experience all the more realistic.

LCARS VI Update • Archived: Nov 28, 2011

LCARS 6 is going pretty well, but there is one tiny problem... Unless you bought your computer from NASA, it's a bit laggy. This is because (and I'm heavily criticized for it) I always set the frame rate to 60 frames per second. There's just something about anything below 60FPS that I don't like - I can see the frames. 30 is just not good enough. I believe that Mike Okuda used 15 FPS in Voyager, but the focus was never really on any monitor; in LCARS 47, it is.

Let's hope computer standards increase tenfold, because this one is gonna be a hog of an app. At least 512MB of dedicated VRAM.

Anyways, I just thought I'd mention something about LCARS, and share some of the latest screenshots with you.

LCARS Early Release • Archived: Nov 20, 2011

I spent all Sunday night finalizing a few things, now it's ready. I was wondering whether to release on Friday as planned, or now (since I've postponed 2 release dates already). You may have already guessed that I went for the latter. It's not the end of version 5, there will be a few updates to come, mainly the voice support and touch screen versions.

Have fun and enjoy.

And with that, work on version 6 (widescreen) can begin... Keep an eye out for info.
