Thank you

Star Trek Armada 3 A Call to arms has been an incredible journey, our entire team has worked long and hard to bring you this version and I can safely say I am extremely proud of the result.

The effort and the dedication shown by the team is unlike any other mod I've worked on before and I hope we can equally make you enjoy what we have given you here today.

Armada 3 A Call to Arms will allow you to play as the 4 races in the previous release and the new Cardassian/Dominion faction. All previous factions have been polished and updated to make sure we bring you the up most quality we could achieve in the engine.
Now you may be aware we promised to provide a full manual at release, unfortunately due to my recent accident I was unable to finish these but I will get them done as soon as possible.

The War is raging on

Whats Next

We will ensure support for A Call to Arms but due to engine limitations will not be able to add more content. The engine is streched to the limit and at this moment already requires you to use the large address aware tool to play stably.

This is not the end however, as we have a surprise announcement later!

SSDImperium99th 4hours 22mins ago says:

The mod is exceptionally well polished and an utterly fantastic Star Trek experience as a whole, other than a few minor issues having to do with the AI slowing down their ship production and becoming less violent as a whole (especially the Cardassian faction nearing the end of a scenario). For example the Borg (when set to an aggressive disposition, and Legendary difficulty) stop expanding and bunker down at one of their outer colonies around the 1hr 30min mark of a game; and the Dominion around the same time frame begin to spam indoctrination centers and manufacture small and utterly insignificant raiding fleets targeting my outer colonies which are quickly dispatched by one of my larger "combat fleets". However, I'll assume that these minor issues relating to the AI will be ironed out shortly once the new patch is released. Changing the subject, I think it would be cool to make new additions to random events in a future release such as making changes to the "Quantum singularity RE" by giving Species 8472 their dreaded ability to destroy planets via a combined photonic cannon through one of their larger capital ships (not yet included in the mod, seen at the end of "Voyager, eps "Scorpion PT.1"). That would really give the Borg a run for their money. Another thing I'd personally like to see includes a Vaadwaur random event where they appear at a random planet through the underspace and raid it.

The devs have more know-how than I but I recommend re-downloading. It's possible you got a corrupt file or two when you downloaded due to ModDb's servers being overtaxed. It's a pain, but it happens. I had to re-download 1.0 twice before it worked.

It seems all of my friends have the same issue, we've been trying to play MP and they keep getting booted every single time. Even with them as hosts they are the ones getting booted. It's fast becoming so completely frustrating.

Artillery. Anything with the range to hit it without getting caught in its energy-dampening field.

A trick I like to use against it is to have an outpost with the the auxiliary governmment upgrade that prevents the loss of the planet. The probe will sit there trying to kill the planet indefinitely. That keeps it contained until you can gather sufficient forces to take it down.
