Star Trek Into the Breach 2.0 is finally here! 


Main Features

  • Play as the Federation, Klingons, or Romulans 
  • All ships and stations have been replaced with Star Trek ships and stations 
  • Most sounds have been replaced with Star Trek sounds 
  • Full game re-balance. Enemies are stronger and better equipped than in stock Artemis 
  • Friendly ships have weapons, and are strong enough to help in a fight 
  • Does not replace ANYTHING in the stock game, so you can still play stock Artemis 
 
 

Installation

Unzip the file "ItB 2.0.zip" 
Copy those contents into your Artemis folder. (You may want to make a copy of your Artemis folder for this purpose, but it is not necessary, as nothing in our mod will overwrite the stock game.) 
 
(If you have modified your personal copy of Artemis, you will want to install our mod into a copy of your stock Artemis folder, otherwise, your changes will be overwritten by our mod.) 
 

 
To play our mod 

Double-Click on the file "Play Artemis" in your main Artemis folder. You will be presented with a choice for which version of the game you want to play. Simply make your choice and press Enter. The game will launch momentarily. All clients should use this method of launching the game as well.


What's New?
  • Updated the mod to include the new taunt system. You better bring an up-to-date Geek Club card if you play as the Klingons.
  • Added more variety to the enemies for all races. 
    • When you play as Starfleet, you will now have much faster, more maneuverable Orion enemies, and the Romulan enemies all have drones.
    • When you play as Klingons, you will face more drone-equipped ships than before, as well as Starfleet carriers. (The Fed Outpost now also launches fighters, and it is far from helpless by itself.)
    • When you play as the Romulans, you will likely see a lot of fighters.
  • Smaller player ships, like the Kelvin, Deathstrike, and Fireswift are now more maneuverable, to balance out their lack of weapons.
  • Updated the original ItB missons for 2.0
  • Added short, but tactically useful descriptions for all ships to help SCI have more info to give the captain
  • Updated some weapon arcs and hardpoints (Most notably, the Fed Outpost, whens you play as a Klingon. Other changes are just minor tweaks)

Looks awesome!  Downloading now to give it a try.

If you keep doing such good work, people will start pestering you for Star Wars, Firefly, Battlestar Galactica, and Farscape versions!  [wink]

I believe I updated Artemis Mod Loader when Vorus first released this update, so it should already be integrated in.  If not (you have some problems getting it to work), repost to this thread and I'll get it updated within a day or so.

The only thing that I really need to update is the .aml file that is integrated in the Artemis Mod Loader--which is entirely XML.  I'm dropping a copy of the mod's zip file to my Dropbox to guarantee access to the file, plus I'll audit the paths where the mod drops all the files to make sure the .aml file has everything.  It's really just a bit of grunt work--nothing sophisticated.

I haven't played with any of the mods yet, and decided to give this one a try today.  I copied all the files to my Artemis folder after making a backup.  But; when I run Artemis, it doesn't give me the choice to run anything other than stock Artemis.  I also tried running the batch file and while it does appear to give me choices, no matter what I select, it just opens stock Artemis.  Is there something I'm missing or need to enable to run this mod?

Try running the bat file as an administrator, my computer is set up in such a way that unless I do that it will not overwrite the files.

That did the trick.  Many thanks.  Having grown up on old-school Trek; it's a blast to see the old girl in the game.

Didnt even know this mod existed until a few days ago. played it with my normal group last night and had a LOT of fun with it. Good solid mod, no issues with crashes on 2.1. Loved that you could play as federation, klingon or Romulans.
