I'm pleased to inform you all that in partnership with the talented folks in the Curse Gampedia Team, it is now a reality! Here's a link to the article showcasing Armada 3 (via Gamepedia): www.gamepedia.com/news/855-star-trek-armada-iii-mod-is-a-star-trek-fans-dream
The wiki is now open to the public, and is accepting any and all contributions as it is in a heavy WIP state. Whether that be an interesting tidbit about a game feature or adding screenshots to articles, you're welcome to help out in anyway you can. As stated before, the wiki will eventually be expanded to include Axanar: Strategic Operations, but as they say.. baby steps first!
If you're interested at helping out, or are willing to take a look at what we have so far, here's a link to the wiki: startrekarmada3.gamepedia.com

Hi Guys,

Loving the mod. I installed it, simply downloaded the LAA thing and installed it and have run 10+ long massive games with HUGE fleets (fighting the modified Borg - lost every time since my allies never back me up haha!) so kudos to the team.

One thing I noticed (possible bug?) is that when I play as my beautiful Romulan Star Empire and I want to advance tech towards pure Romulan (not Cardassian, Klingon or Federation), I research the prerequisites but after the 2nd (at 5 research stations - sorry new to the names) it is greyed out and says I've not got 1 point in the previous tech which I clearly do. Is this known?

Hi there Liv3Wire. Welcome to the mod.

The problem you're having there is you need an active pact with another faction. In the example you give there, you would need a pact with another Romulan faction in order to proceed in the Diplomacy research tree.

There's a button at the top of the screen that looks like two hands shaking. This opens up the Diplomacy window. There will be a list of all the factions you're playing against. Select a Romulan faction and click the 'Manage Pacts' button. This will bring up a list of the pacts that are available to you.

If no pacts are available it's likely because you don't have a god enough relationship with them. They're not going to help you if they hate you, after all. Try giving them donations of money and resources and fulfilling any missions they give you. Once your relationship is good enough, you can offer them a pact, or they may even offer one to you.

Once a pact is made, you will be able to continue down the Diplomacy research tree and unlock its significant benefits. :)

Guys is it normal for me to have white models and effects? And crashes and random uber lag? (So far when i set the models to the highest option it returns back to normal but i lag so i play on med-high settings ) thanks

OrionSlaver Aug 6 2015 replied:

No, it's definitely not normal.

The models/effects issues and random crashing sounds like this is a LAA issue. It's a very common problem and can be fixed in two minutes.

First, find your Sins.exe, located by default here:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\sins of a solar empire rebellion

The relevant file is simply called 'Sins of a Solar Empire Rebellion'. This is your Sins.exe. Right click, go into Properties and ensure that the .exe is NOT set to Read Only.

Then go to wherever you're keeping your CTA files, kept by default in your Rebellion 1.82 mods folder located here:

C:\Users\USER\Documents\My Games\Ironclad Games\Sins of a Solar Empire Rebellion\Mods-Rebellion v1.82

Find and open the program called Large Address Aware that came with your download of CTA.

Browse and select your Sins.exe mentioned above. Tick the box indicating that yes, you want the game to access more than 2GB of memory, and click 'Save'.

Play the game.

Let me know if that doesn't help.

I hope it works for you. Give it a try and let us know how it goes. :)

Is Sisko supposed to have cloak ability? I must be missing something But couldn't find anything in the forum.

OrionSlaver Aug 6 2015 replied:

Like Atlanta says, no, Sisko was never meant to have the cloak ability.

Story-wise the first USS Defiant was the only Federation ship to be equipped with a cloaking device. Furthermore, Sins is a game that puts the focus on fleets, rather than individual ships. A single ship working alone is ineffective and an easy target. Thus, a cloaking device on a single ship, even a hero unit, would be a waste of an ability.

No, no cloak ability for Sisko.
