I looking for it to change the sprite
I've been on a bit of hiatus and just started getting that itch again in the last few days. About a year ago I took it upon myself to make a Borg plug-in as none existed. The finished product was met with some positive feedback but mostly negative; but not surprising as it was my first attempt.
Anyway I'm jumping back into it and am working on the storyline. Well actually storylines as I'll be adding a new government charged with protecting everyone from the Borg. I'll also be modifying the Borg ships a bit as I think they're too powerful at the moment. I guess in short I'll be revamping a bunch of things.
Now the point of this topic is to try and solve one of my previous problems. You see I want it so that if you capture a planet, while piloting a borg ship, I wanted it to change the sprite to a dead world and naturally change the description and all that. I know I can do it through missions and such but I thought this would be a neat feature. I'm also going to be working on making ships you capture become Borg ships. I have this figured out I think by modifying the "upgrade" option. In short when you upgrade them they will be modified with Borg technology and have borg weapons and all that. I don't know if I'll get into actually modifying the sprite to make them look more borg'isk. Instead I may just add a str and make it say "borg upgrades" or something.
Anyway back on topic, I thought of maybe doing it through bits but I don't know if that would work for dominated planets. Also would I have to modify each spob or could I just make them all change into one planet? For the most part Borg worlds all look the same so if I could make it work with just having to set 3 or 4 planets as templates that would be so much easier.
Anyway what are everyone's thoughts on this?
Thanks for taking the time to help;
