It took a long, but now it's finally, the expected last update in the year 2013. Primarily this update should only fix a lot of bugs, but are nevertheless still added some interesting contents over time. In addition to several new buildings, units, decorative elements and optical improvements, the Russian players can look forward to the support of the Russian language now. At this point again Special thanks to the translator "0pupentium".

Since the new forum is used excellent and always adding new good suggestions, of course, many of which have been implemented directly. So we hope that the forum will continue to be used as good as before, and we hope it stays that way. A summary of all suggestions can be found in the relevant collection thread in the forum. With a little luck then is your suggestion in the next update of it! :)

Also our partner "DaLexy" updated the popular map pack up to date. Thus, the map pack is now finally usable for maps that are created without add-on. Also the problems about create maps in the past are solved. To make the whole easiest for all, the map pack is now also known as optional content in the installer of the A.R.R.C. Mod. Consequently, it is longer necessary to add the map pack manually with the RDA-Explorer.

The demand calculator of Elodia for the A.R.R.C.-Mod has been updated to the mod version 2.07 and is now integrated in our homepage. It is also translated into English now.

We wish you a lot of fun and hope you like it! :)

The Download is available here.

Question however, If i am playing a modded version of Anno, with the Anno cookie thing, can a buddy with just a vanilla version of Anno join me? A friend just bought the game and wants to play it a bit before modding it, even tho i keep telling him about this mod. lol

No it's not possible. The Game checks if both have the same version. When he wants to join your game there will be a message with an ansynchron game data error.

Hey, I have a question for you developers and I really hope it get's answered. I understand is might be difficult to implement new things in the mod but is it maybe possible that you look at the player ideas page on the Anno 2070 wiki (http://anno2070.wikia.com/wiki/Player_Ideas) and maybe implement some things? Also is it possible for you to improve the texture of Helios and Deimos? The upper deck of these ships look terrible... (in my opinion)

There are a lot of good ideas, but unfortunatly the most ideas cannot be done. It's not possible to change the GUI of Anno 2070 and so we can never add there new missions or scenarios. Also a lot of these buildings seems to be not possible. We can only do smaller changes.

No, we do not want to add infantery, but there are a lot of new ships, planes and with the next update also drones for having new ways to fight. We thought about the problems and so there are much more options to destroy or hijack your enemy.
