Hi everybody,

Just finished VML-mod v1.1 based on Stars! ***2.6j rc4***. I'll put it on my website after testing has finished (approximately during the next weekend).

For the players participating in "transwarp III", who already made it on my confirmed players list (you did if you named 3 preferred PRTs and answered the polls): Mail me ASAP - if your mailbox can take it, I'll mail you a zipfile for testing and examining final changes!

Feature list for the VML 1.1 update:

- switched to Stars! v2.6 jrc4 (registered shareware) instead of former 2.7 jrc3
- included splashscreen
- revised item graphics where necessary
- increased resource cost of IT exclusive stargates
- reduced range of chaff shredders to r6
- changed weight of construction modules
- changed engine names
- lowered con level of PB hull by 1 (now at 14)
- lowered con level of ultra station by 1 (now at 15)
- lowered con level of deathstar by 1 (now at 19)
- increased starbase shipyard to 1600kt
- updated the helpfile
- some minor changes

That is intentional. Hence "during next weekend" - while I did do testing all on my own for previous versions, I never published anything untested. The switch from 2.7 to 2.6 as a basis required more work than one might be aware of.

This is why I want the players from my mailing list to the upcoming game examine the changes and do a little testing before I put the zipfile on my page.

Since I remember you are on my list (which is quite long meanwhile), Jeff, I'll send you a .zip this evening, hoping your mailbox can take it.

See, this is exactly why I wanted players requesting the zipfile in the 1st place. Your hotmail account appearently rejected the mail containing the zipfile. Sad Please contact me naming another address or way I can deliver the files to you.

I am saddened as I only use that account, let me look up if my ISP gave me a better one... I do not know where the documentation is.

Hi Jeffimix,

Use Yahoo Mail, you get up to 6 MB free. And it's faster than Hotmail!

Hi everybody,

Just finished updating my website, including the latest version of the VML-modfile for download on the page.

v1.1a is a 1259kb zipfile download being based on Stars! v2.60j rc4 (no wavemix.dll needed, no SS popsteal) and includes a detailed documentation.

Feedback has been decent and positive so far, so I must be doing something right I guess. Even the AH forum has opened its own "VML-lounge" for discussions concerning VML and StarEd (>70 posts in 9 topics so far). You'll find a direct link on my page.

Join the fun - keep Stars! alive.

Hi

Just wondering what tools you are using to modify Stars. The version of StarEd I have doesn't work on 2.6jrc4.

I'm currently doing things by hand, but will need to write an editor myself if I can't find one that's already been written. Thanks.

I'm affraid you'll not receive any answer here. I haven't heard from him for about two years (when he dropped from Transwarp III VML mod game for RL issues). At that time he was available at verker_at_chello_dot_at. For his new e-mail addres check the "sticky" first topic.
BR, Iztok
