Serial Roleplays / Re: Klaw's Last SRP
Last post by Klaw - February 17, 2020, 02:38:37 pm
Maybe an Orville-esque RP based on a New Orleans Class Starship during the TNG/DS9/Voy Era. We'd explore the Gamma Quadrant first, meet some new alien races, and possibly take a pivotal role in the war... - as well as show some of the awkward transition between the Enterprise C and the Enterprise D. (pre TNG Season 1)

As a preliminary suggestion - a few off the cuff ideas have come to mind (and I'm not afraid to map like a madman to accomplish these :P)

1. A dystopian 30th century. The Borg have all but destroyed the Alpha Quadrant, and what remains of the Federation live on in a scattered Flotilla, protected by an elite taskforce called Section 31 (it'd be a new, interesting take on the organization in the far future, after the events of option 2)

2. What I've called DS9 Season 8 - based on the writers room segment of the "What We Left Behind" DS9 Documentary. The first Cardassian in Starfleet has arrived on DS9 to take command of the station (20 years after Sisko was taken by the prophets) - and the galaxy is a very different place, but like Quark said "The more things change, the more they stay the same".

3. Days after the Khitomer conference, and the signing of the peace treaty between the Klingon Empire and the Federation, Starfleet readies a humanitarian convoy to head to Klingon Space. Mission 1 - Aid the Praxis cleanup, Mission 2 - Explore the vast expanse beyond the empire that even the Klingon's haven't ventured.

Serial Roleplays / Klaw's Last SRP
Last post by Klaw - February 10, 2020, 03:03:13 pm
So I've been thinking a lot about this over the last week or so, and recent events have helped me to come to this point. I have one more SRP in me. It *could* run for 20 years :P but I have one more in me. I'm not sure which story I want to tell, I'm open to suggestions on era/ship/etc. But with any luck, (and if I have the support) by March, I want to start it up, and see where we go.

So I guess, I'm asking the community. Anyone interested? Do you have suggestions. What do you want to see/do/experience in my last series?

Due to an apparent lack of interest, this pilot has been cancelled.

(Thank you String for your interest in it, maybe one day I can try again...)

RPG-X / Re: Klaw's RPG-X Overhaul Init...

Another night barely able to think straight :P

decided to map out what I'm calling the RPG-X Configurator, and get a basic idea of what I'd like the gui to look like, and the program to do.

May be worth a look, I'd appreciate any feedback/suggestions!

Quote from: undefinedRPG-X Configurator

This is a written up idea bubble of how this thing can/will/does work (In my head at least). When the Configurator is installed, it will replace your default RPG-X shortcuts
and open when you launch the game.

// represents a tab at the top of the window.
## represents a button to press
( )represents a dialog box for you to fill in info.

//Character Creation
 ##Load Saved Character
 ##Select character file (Lists saved character files, highlight and select ##OK)
 ##Edit character file (Takes you to Create New Character with the info filled in for this profile)
 ##Create New Character

 ##Primary Rank set choice (Lists all available rank sets that fit the corresponding standard, and are installed in the correct file, highlight and select ##OK)
 ##Secondary Rank set choice (Lists all available (sans the previous choice) rank sets that fit the corresponding standard, and are installed in the correct file, highlight and select ##OK)

//Weapon and tools selection
 Choose your RP's Equipment Style
 ##Packs for TOS, TNG etc. (Lists all available equipment sets that fit the corresponding standard, and are installed in the correct file, highlight and select ##OK)

 ##Choose your map retexture(s)
 List of retextures and which map(s) they effect.
 
//Information and Credits
 Link to Map List (Google Sheets doc I'm working on)
 Link to Rank Readme (a readme about the rank set, and how they're organized - TBD)
 Link to The Forge
 Link to The Last Outpost
 
 At the bottom of the window, set static - there will be a ##Launch RPG-X button. If any of the information above isn't filled in, it will pre-load a set of defaults (in most cases, RPG-X defaults - in the case of the rank set, It'll set the Klingon rank (WIP) as secondary and DS9 as primary) OR It will load in the previously loaded options.
 
 Maybe I should add in a ##Refresh button, to remove any configurations that are in your RPG-X install, and return everything back to default

RPG-X / Re: Klaw's RPG-X Overhaul Init...

I'm still playing with things, but my idea seems to work!

The Forge RPG-X server is currently running the new rankest - and will do so through the weekend (unless someone complains...)

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1vCoFdJmmFbbBCsUgMYgAsAYZkTZYJdOF/view?usp=sharing

This above is a link to the WIP rankest. In it's current state, it contains rank images across the Ent, TOS, Movie, TNG, Voy and DS9 eras.

To use it, follow these Instructions:
1. Extract the zip into your baseef folder
2. Open the gfx folder, and you will then see a series of Folders (2d, Ent Era, TOS Era, etc)
3. Select the era you want, and copy both the ForgeRanks and ForgeProvisionalranks.tga files from that folder.
4. Place the copied files into the 2d folder (overwriting the ones currently in there.
5. Connect to The Forge RPG-X Server (/connect 107.161.169.119:27960).

This is still in VERY early stages, I'm putting it out there though hoping for some help with testing, and feedback on whether or not things are programmed/working correctly.

Moving on to the next stage, figuring out an easier way of activating/deactivating the ranks before the game launches. (AKA, building a Mod Manager...)

It's been a while since I've done a rank set, and I've never built one from *complete* scratch (I usually paste over another one... :P )

I managed to get the ranks working locally. Having a problem now with my image file. I *think* the rank images are too close together, and as a result, it's glitching out some of the rank images (The DS9 images won't display the commodore rank, for example - and the ent era ranks won't display any of the admiral ranks) - the only thing I can think of is there isn't enough space between the rank images.

So tomorrow, back to the drawing board, as I space these suckers out, reconfigure the rank script again, and see what happens.

Tomorrow night, I *should* be able to test my theory in full, and determine whether or not this local rank set loading idea will work.

Hit a snag working on the rank set (Keep getting an error that I can't seem to resolve... yet.)

so, while I mull that over, I decided this morning to start work on a map list, featuring all of the maps installed on my install of RPG-X (which may or may not be all of the ones in Ultimate Edition)

My hope is to setup a full on information page, where we can link to, and update the spreadsheet with information as RPG-X content is released. I also hope it can serve as an aid for people who may want to run an RP, but can't seem to find the map they want to use.

The Map List so far: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1vDcwfmbedj-rT4Rp3pUlmPGNfyc9HLkIc4olwDSVvWw/edit?usp=sharing

If you're interested in collaborating on this, or anything else that may come to the table/my head as I putter to "Make RPG-X Great Again" (Need to find my old hat...) please let me know!

Did some thinking/research and took some creative liberties....

BUT I think I have a reasonable Movie Era set now...

Going to need to add a fourth column to all the other sets (No Problem, just gonna copy/paste the middle column...)

The current rank set(s) WIP:

So far, I have setup the basics of 5 individual ranksets. Each set consists of basic Starfleet ranks and a series of "provisional" ranks.

I've had to be a little creative, as the Ent ranks, and TOS ranks don't include provisional rank pips like the TNG/DS9/Voy Era do. So, in lieu of the available, I used Vulcan ranks for Ent, and The Cage/Where No Man Has Gone Before ranks for TOS.

Still working on the Movie era(s), I'm probably going to have to make things a bit simpler there than they appear on screen - but we'll see
