Anno 2170 - A.R.R.C. (Advanced Research - Reformed Content)
A.R.R.C. is a complex modification for Anno 2070. The goal is to offer many alternatives, but not create elements too powerful. Create a lot of new buildings, research new upgrades and enjoy a better gaming experience.
This Mod adds many new changes into the gameplay:
Build over 30 new buildings like the fusion power plant, nano ozon-stabilizer or new production options and much more
Build over 500 new variations of ornamental buildings on your island or harbor
Build the new Habor cities in two different variants as regular or ornamental city
Build your cities under water
Build the new ships like Keto´s "Anaconda" or Trenchcoat´s "Fat Lady" and enjoy the increased ship limit
Create trading routes with the new trading airport and its aircrafts
Allow the NPC´s a resettlement with the new AI shipyard
Discover over 400 new upgrades in the re-designed categories of the academy
Enjoy two different Iconpacks for your upgrades in "Iceblue" or "Colored"
Customize your cities with the new residence and public buildings with the new texturepacks "Black Line" & "Red Line"
Discover the new balancing system of all energy and ecobalance buildings as well as the new damage system of the military units
The mod supports the english, russian and german version of Anno 2070 and Anno 2070 - Deep Ocean!
