The First Featured Update

Add-On Name: Realistic Borg
Author: Draconis
Type: Faction Overhaul

Mother of God.The Federation is gone!!

Allow me to re-introduce Draconis our first mod contributor and fellow member of the Armada 3 Dev Team, Releasing Realistic Borg an insight into how he feels a more realistic Borg should play out as a playable faction, we ask him a few questions around this latest Add-On.

Hi Draconis, Why a new Add-On for the Borg faction?

Basically we felt that some people would find the Borg more interesting if they got to play the Borg as they were in the show minus the endgame episode of course! I really felt that the fans wanted this kind of Borg but it just really would make multi player no fun for those on the receiving end, well unless you like that sort of punishment!

So what have you changed from the original CTA faction?

I basically have spent a lot of time rebalancing their research tree, for example they will now through research be faster, stronger, more ships, more capitals, discounts etc, more bonuses for research it basically emulates a collective response so similar to the bonuses that the AI gets, Though to make it fair i removed the AI bonuses for this sub mod so you don't get a 2x more powerful Borg AI ... that would be bad!

Will you be planning any other Add Ons?

I dont know but i never say never between working on Axanar and this but i suppose if the supporters of this mod have the desire for something i may take a go at trying to fulfill that where i can.

Hi have same problem, Galaxy scenario folder file differs from host? try lots of maps different settings
if you save up to 3-4 mins saves will work after that always breaks. Used few other mods only happens with this one. Sending host save file can get game to load and works until next save. Any ideas

Gul Dukat. Would there be any chance that in the next update you guys could go ahead and add concussion mines for the Cardassians? I think that that would be a nice addition to the game especially since they have always been known for their good defences. Thanks for such a great mod by the way.

Is Sins of a solar empire rebellion new frontier sufficient or do I need the rebellion only?

Schuchart 23hours 33mins ago replied:

New Frontiers is more than sufficient (it's Rebellion + the "Forbidden Worlds"-DLC), you may play STA 3. BUT if you want to have the full experience for STA 3 you'll also need the second DLC for Rebellion, "Stellar Phenomenon". Otherwise you won't be able to play certain maps which contain stuff from that DLC. It costs just a few euros on Steam, so it ain't a big hussle.

hallo zusammen ich hab eine frage wie viele Rassen (Race) gehen bei Sins of solar ?

Schuchart Mar 3 2015, 8:01am replied:

Ich bin mir nicht sicher, was genau du meinst.

Aber wenn du die Anzahl der Sins-Rassen wissen willst: 3 Spielbare (Advent, Vasari, TEC) mir jeweils 2 Untergruppen (Loyalisten und Rebellen), ergo 6 insgesamt. Star Trek Armada 3 hat 5 spielbare Rassen: Cardassianer, Föderation, Klingonen, Romulaner und Borg.

Falls du meinst, wie viel potenziell möglich sind: Schau dir mal die Sins of the Fallen-Mod an, dort ist, glaube ich, die größte Anzahl an Rassen vertreten und zeigt auch ganz gut die Problematik einer solchen Menge auf.
Wie viele Rassen man dem Spiel hinzufügen kann kommt dabei ganz auf die Größe/Diversität der Rasse an (wegen potenziellen Speicher-Problemen) und auch auf die Verträglichkeit mit der Sins-Engine, da diese leider hardgecoded ist, was sowas betrifft (z.B. das Rassen-Auswahlmenü).
