Star Trek TC

Post by AFADoomer »

Something I've been working on...

Project Web Site | Mod Git Repository

Right now I'm re-creating the shooting set that was used for aboard-ship scenes in Star Trek (The Original Series). I plan to eventually expand to broader maps, using the components that I've created for the set layout to make a full level (or set of levels - not sure yet).

I've finished the bridge, conference room, transporter room and a basic quarters area that is waiting to be individualized. I'm most of the way done on engineering (minus some wall details and the emergency manual monitor area), the full corridor set (minus the Jefferies tube) and turbolifts. Still need to start sickbay and its associated areas.

I'm not sure if/when this will be released... While a lot of the models and texture work are mine (either new or from years ago), there are some resources that I've pulled from an old Elite Force mod I was a team member on, and I'm not sure where they came from originally. Given that they're 10 years old at this point, I don't think anyone will mind, but... And I know that there is at least one model that I need to re-do that came directly from Elite Force (bridge weapons targeting scanner).

As a Star Trek fan and obviously a Doom fan i can't wait to see more of your project :D

I'll follow your progress with great interests :)

Single player or deathmatch? If deathmatch, " :roll: outdated zandro" compatible?

Because this is interesting. Now if only if it's the -D.... because I want the -D

maybe a bridge crew skinpack, with their sounds shoved from ol' stinsv/holodeck3 site libraries stuffed in their pains and taunts to complete it spriteripping from STTNGAFU and ST25TH, and a klingon invasion (or borg invasion for the -d)

Single player to start, but I plan to at least have the framework DM compatible as well.

I have a Klingon in there right now, and my mostly-working player model has skins for all the department colors (I have a red-shirted Kirk wandering around as a friendly enemy).

I'm not sure on Zandronum compatibility - probably not in the initial version, since I already know I'm using some pointers and such that are newer to ZDoom (like to get the generic disintegration effect above that is actor independent).

I am going to assume this MOD is not going to take the standard direction of Doom gameplay, but rather a survival/puzzle type gameplay, yes?

Because if it isn't, it will get rather dull and boring using just a Phaser Pistol, Phaser Rifle, and maybe Worf's Bat'leth when you find it in his quarters when roaming the ship. :|
That being said, you might want to look into importing the weapon sprites from the Elite Force series to compensate...

You should reuse the existing phaser sprites from the ncc1701 wad on the archives.

Most likely. Elite Force was a relatively happy balance of standard FPS and survival/puzzle - that's kind of what I'm aiming for. I'm planning to add the Klingon disruptor next, phaser rifle eventually (projectiles are mostly done already), and maybe some others. I haven't gotten that far.

The sprite-based phaser in the screenshots is just a placeholder left over from when I was going to do this all with voxels, sprites and ZDoom compatibility before I decided that GZDoom was just easier - I did the model work for the phaser, phaser rifle, and Klingon disruptor years ago... I just need to port them into GZDoom as player weapons (the Klingon in the disintegration screenshots is actually carrying the disruptor already - can't really see it, though). Plus I'm kind of going for accuracy to the show, and the ncc1701 phaser sprites aren't much like the source material.

Very nice! Being a Trekkie myself, I am constantly on the look-out for Star Trek content.

One suggestion: In this screenshot, may I suggest modifying the texturing on the data console to define the edges? Right now, the horizontal and vertical surfaces seem to blend into each other at the edges.

Thanks!

I'm probably going to re-work the textures for that model (that one is relatively low-resolution), and I'm going to bake in some shading (you can kind of see an example on the engineering centerpiece). I originally made the transporter and bridge models for Elite Force, which shades in-game, so the textures are rather one-dimensional.

A view of engineering detail work (still missing a few things)... This also features my new Type II phaser model that I redid from almost scratch, with a brand new texture.

The first two space shots are from a recreation of the title sequence, the last is a mock-up with Space Station K7

Biggest progress this week: Discovering that I can import models with multiple textures files if I recompile the model with proper paths to each texture in the .pk7, and don't define a skin in ModelDef...
