If you played Birth of the Federation like me, then you spent hours on end taking control of the galaxy, with each of the different factions offered in the game. Now I have not seen a BOTF 2, I have seen what some creative types did, but it's not an offical copy of a 2nd version of the 1st game.

If you don't know what the 1st game was like, follow the link:

I am shocked a 2nd game was never made, and I wish someone would spend the time on it. lol If I had the money, i would I would get it started.

So what would you do?

I would balance the races better so the Federation doesn't have an unbeatable advantage. I would also fix it so the game wouldn't crash when the Ferengi and Klingons fight. And fix that horrible memory leak.

Porthos is not amused.

Amazing game

Played it so much I remember getting to turn 950 but alas after about 200 it got so slow it would take ages to play

Ah yes, the infamous memory bug. The times that i've waited to conquer the galaxy..

As far as i know couple of BOTF fans took it on their own to create a new BTOF2, altough i must say i don't find it really active lately...

and <= BOTF2 fan based creation, not finished yet unfortunatly.

My biggest want would be more playable factions. the most popular mods were simply to add faction variations. (note that the game is hard coded to only have 5 factions at once so adding one meant taking out another)

I can haz joystick!

Botf was a awesome game when it 1st came out despite its bugs and flaws. If there was ever a 2nd one I'd like to see a expansionist,aggressive a.i who will build a large empire and will attack you better than the old game. Many times I had my fleet wiped out and the empire that declared war left me alone to rebuild when I was unable to defend myself.
Also a larger map more races. And better ship combat.
