Hey all,

I just started another playthrough of Transcendence after a long time and was wondering if it's possible to integrate both the Eternity Port and Corporate Command content into the base game? That is, having all the new systems (Centauri, Sol, Tau Ceti etc.) in a single map. It seems that the star systems from the base game + CC and the ones from EP are mutually exclusive. If I'm playing CC I can't travel to EP systems, and vice versa. In fact many base game systems are locked out in EP too, from St. Kats I can't go to Charon and back to Eridani for instance. Playing on Steam, if that makes any difference. Thanks.

That is correct, EP is a Stand Alone adventure Addition.
It was a good starting point for the adventure and I think it will expand if it can.

Yes, it would be nice if the systems connected to the regular game, However, I can assure you that the EP content mixed with the regular game + Corporate Command does nothing to increase the challenge.

I have mixed them....I thought it was going to be 'Awesome'.....it was just 'Awwwwww'.

These Collections are still new and I am sure as time goes on they will be updated with the new and improved magic the game engine is acquiring .....and become something far better then it's modest beginning.

After All....Transcendence started as just a tiny spec in a black box ( DOS )....
Flying Irresponsibly In Eridani......

I don't like to kill pirates in cold blood ..I do it.. but I don't like it..

I created an extension to do this, however all it provides is connecting the star maps. If you would like me to add you to the closed beta testers list, please pm me your multiverse username with this thread title as the subject.

Thanks Wolfy, that would be really cool.

Unfortunately I bought the game on Steam and while I do have a Multiverse account, I haven't bought any expansions on Multiverse itself. Will it still work in this case?

In any case I've PM'd you my username.

Edit: is your custom extension based upon the Pilgrim character class or the CDM Mercenary? Is it possible to change this in any way? I really like playing as the latter over the default class, especially with the CDM Shard powers.

Its not a custom class/adventure, it merely a clever use of the EP library (if you already own EP) allows the content (factions, ships, systems) from EP to show up in D&O:SotP

I believe it should work fine if you own it on steam all you need to do is to login to your multiverse account in-game itself and that should connect it and let it download the mods from the multiverse, I believe. George would probably know for certain.
