Hello Everyone!

I decided to wait until we were a little closer to October before revealing this even though Grizz gave me permission to do so earlier.  Grizz requested a skin for use in a future plot (no spoilers included) for Call of the Void Part II.

I introduce:



It is only one character at this time, however I am open to working on others if we need to.

Here is the trailer I put together for this release:



And you can download at the following locations:

NexusMods

GameFront

ModDB

Make sure to download from one of the above locations before this SRP starts.  Also, I structured the model files in this release in a way that other female characters in Main or other similarly constructed uniform sets could share this mod.  Feel free to use the assets for this or other works.

Creative Corner / RPG-X USS Archer SRP Crew Skin Pack
September 14, 2020, 07:49:04 pm
Hello Everyone!

I have released a skin pack for the USS Archer mini-SRP here in 2020.


About the characters:

Ensign Joules is an Android officer who has made the decision to grow a beard. 

Lieutenant Junior Grade L'Tress is a Caitian Gravimetrics Science Officer who is also married to the ship's main helmsman. 

Ensign Tauros is a Klingon Quartermaster on board the Archer and has a cybernetic hand that requires the use of a glove in most circumstances. 

Hospital Medical Corpsman Jiral Telas is a medical officer on board the Archer, and she is a joined trill. 

Samantha is an experimental A.I. that was developed during the Dominion War as an Emergency Medical Counsellor prototype, and she chose her appearance as an Orion officer.

Each of them has the Main/Main (damaged)/Dress/Dress Admiral/Admiral/Cadet/Combat/Voyager uniform sets.  Samantha also has uniforms based on Counsellor Troi's various outfits during TNG.

Trailer for the pack:



Current Download locations:

NexusMods

GameFront

ModDB

Anyone in or planning to join the USS Archer mini-SRP will be required to have this pack or else be stuck with Munro or some other default skin for the character in front of them.  Those of you who just want to have more options, I encourage you to download to expand your RPG-X crewverse!

Acknowledgements:

Thanks to Serris for allowing the use of the TLO intro sequence in the trailer and for allowing modifications to the Jiral character.  Thanks to TLO for continuing to maintain RPG-X and the various assets.

Special thanks to Laz Rojas for permission to use the root assets used in Worf/Troi/Riker/M'Ress. 
Check out his work below, and you most certainly will see his work make its way through RPG-X in the future:

Creative Corner / Orion Crewmembers for RPG-X
August 12, 2020, 11:37:11 pm
Hello Everyone!

I have decided to jump head-first into creating new options for characters within RPG-X.  I decided as an easy introduction working on adding Orions based on the current human (or human-like) characters currently available.  I did a test with basic EF (not RPG-X) in order to see if this was doable, and I have shown Serris my first results on this.  This test makes me confident enough to move onward into RPG-X.

This forum thread will be updated as I make progress.  Just wanted to let everyone know as this is my first Elite Force modding project since probably 2009/2010, and this would benefit anyone in RPG-X once finished.

Hello everyone!

I created a Gamma Quadrant species, with some details.  It is an extended read, and has room for making changes for whatever your plot needs.  They are primarily a sentient plant species hive-mind that is a full democracy.  The full write up is below:

Hello,

I just re-installed RPG-X Ultimate Edition in addition to the Asteria pack.  Last night was my first attempt to RP in forever, and I was not able to stay connected without losing connection forcing a disconnect and reconnect or RPG-X restart.

My internet setup isn't the most straight forward.  I have a Comcast unit hooking up to a Netgear router hooking up to another Netgear router that has an ethernet cable going to the desktop having this issue. 

Here is what I have done so far:
- Placed inbound/outbound rules for Windows Firewall on Port 27960
- Placed inbound/outbound rules for Windows Firewall for the application RPG-X
- Port Forwarded 27960 on the Comcast unit
- Port Forwarded 27960 on the first Netgear router

Anyone have any ideas what else to try?

Thank you,

Arron Dominion

RPG-X / Setting up VR with RPG-X on Windows
May 20, 2017, 10:51:55 pm
Hello everyone,

I decided to buy a program to use with my HTC Vive in the hopes of emulating VR capability in non-VR games.  The program had support for Elite Force, so I decided to try it out with RPG-X.  It works really well with RPG-X with full head tracking.

---------------------------------------------------

If you want to reproduce the environment yourself here is what you will need:
-Windows 7 or higher
-A VR Headset - Either Occulus or HTC Vive (I only have a Vive)
-RPG-X
-vorpX  http://www.vorpx.com/

----------------------------------------------

Steps you need to do:

1)  Setup your VR Headset if you have not already

2)  Ensure you have RPG-X installed

3)  Install vorpX

4)  Configure vorpX, and duplicate the Local Profile for Star Trek Voyager: Elite Force and name it something related to RPG-X

5)  Point the Local Profile for RPG-X to the RPG-X .exe

6) Launch your game

-----------------------------------------------

vorpX automatically kicks in if you have it set to Watching, and have defined a rule for the game you are wanting to use with VR. 

Here are a few screenshots:

One thing to note is that the UI adapts to where you are looking, and it might be a little more difficult to select dialogue windows.  There is a tendency for the VR experience to look in weird spots, but can be corrected with external controls (used the Vive controllers in my case)

I didn't see a readily available topic for this, and noticed some of the SRP files are in Google Drives and such.  Nexus Mods took the mantle to migrate Filefront/Gamefront content before the servers shut down, and managed to acquire most of the Star Trek game related content, including Elite Force.

Most of the classic maps are there:
http://www.nexusmods.com/startrekvoyagereliteforce/mods/searchresults/?

It might be interesting to see if you could establish a dialogue to upload the content that is not currently there, and future content with Nexus for RPG-X

Introduce Yourself! / Hello Everyone
May 14, 2017, 01:23:20 pm
Hello everyone!

I am Arron Dominion, and I have been a part of older EF Roleplay (back before RPG-X was a thing if that is telling).  Star Trek is something I keep coming back to, and wish to do more Star Trek based roleplaying when free time permits.

I made a few maps back when I was modding Elite Force, and the best RPG map I released (even if it was not finished entirely) is probably http://www.nexusmods.com/startrekvoyagereliteforce/mods/6/? |  I have always been more comfortable with scripting as opposed to level design.  I still do some game modding, but that is primarily for Skyrim. 

I am a 26 year old programmer, currently at a place that does propane accounting software (queue the propane and propane accessories jokes).  My degree is in Software Engineering from a place called Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology.  My job is primarily based in C#/SQL, but I have past experience with C/C++/Java/Python/JavaScript/HTML5/Ruby/Scheme/BlitzMax.  Recently got a HTC Vive, and my programming background is part of how I happened on The Last Outpost.

Looking forward to future roleplaying, catching up with veteran EF RPers that are still out there, and being a part of the community.
