The Battle for Delor Prime (Star Trek: Armada II)

As some of you guys know, during the latter parts of developing LCARS 47 the Dev Team got pretty caught up playing Star Trek: Armada II when the work permitted. Obviously, I was undefeated every time (even when they all teamed up against me). Anyways, we thought we'd release the map I made. The catch is, it's lodged in a file inside LCARS Prolixus. Happy hunting!

Astrometrics; Bigger is Better

















The Astrometrics animation come sequence come interactive module is coming along rather nicely. It's really starting to test the limits of my knowledge of stellar cartography throughout Star Trek. Anyways, I thought I'd give you all a little update.

Version 5 gets an MSD Overhaul

In the next update for version 5 (5.3), the app will lose all of the Intrepid class diagrams ready to support the new MSD plugins feature which will be required to be installed after you update LCARS 47. Tactical ship icons like the one pictured, will also reflect whichever plugin is installed and since it's now handled externally, the ship diagrams are even more detailed.

Don't worry if you were a fan of the Intrepid class, it will be available for download as a plugin (see: full list).

The Champaign update has also been applied to version 5.3, so it's now even more your own.

Deflector Shield (with changeable ship class MSD)

As you know, I've been working on support for custom ship class plugins. That's going so well, it's opening doors (or airlocks) for better animations. This is the latest product of the feature; deflector shield status readout.

Of course, I've added red and blue alert display functions, so when you hit the alert button, the shield display will reflect the new status. The layout itself is based on the shot from Star Trek: Nemesis, with obvious artistic license (pictured: Sovereign Class Starship).

When version 6 is released, all ship classes will have this function, and if there is no ship class MSD plugin installed, you'll see an error message.
