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.

Not sure if this has been brought up yet but the colony pods upgrade for the Romulan star base does not prevent planet loss.

any chance to change the Federation FLAGSHIP from GALAXY-Class to SOVEREIGN-Class ? BTW, the Navigation Lights On the EXCALIBUR-Class DREADNOUGHT should be RED on the LEFT Side {PORT} and GREEN on the STARBOARD Side.

There was someone who changed the Fed-flagship from Galaxy to Typhon-Class, so it is possible. He also stated that it was rather simple, by editing some flagship-entity-file which contains self-explanatory strings concerning this. It was a while back, when we had a discussion about how replace the actual Fed-flagship with the Ambassador i think (like your comment now).

Btw, why are you CAPITALISING so many of your WORDS?

Whenever I try to start a multiplayer game I get an error that says "This map requires the following DLC to play: String Not Found" or something of the like and I know my friend and I have matching versions. What gives?

so your enabledmods.txt looks like this (with one blank text line underneath the final line of text):

You will need to replace the EnabledMods.txt in the SoasE:Rebellion-modfolder (the one where you put the CTA-folder from the zip) with the one provided in the download. Activating STA 3 via the mod-menu does not work, afaik. The mod should load up the next time you start the game.
