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!

Siege ships or a very big fleet. Or a very big fleet of siege ships. Any of those will do the trick.

Play the CD "Relax With Whale Songs" and let it "feel the power of natural sounds".

Then sing to it. It should implode at some point.

Anything with sufficient range to stay out of its energy draining field. Failing tha, just throw whatever you've got at it. It'll take a long time, but it'll eventually go down.

A nice loophole is to have an outpost/starbase present with the upgrade that prevents the loss of the planet. The Whale Probe will just sit there and keep trying to kill the planet indefinitely, so at least you'll be able to keep it contained.

i dont know much about game engines but would it be possible to re write the SoSE engine into a 64 bit format which would solve all your problems for the most part

If I'm not mistaken this would essentially require rebuilding the entire game engine to essentially turn it into a 64bit game.

Doing so would violate copyright as you'd have to modify the .exe.

Awww, seriously, Ironclad Games and Stardock would be some kind of extremely stupid if they wouldn't let you work with the source code after this magnificient release. It's the least they should do!

Strike craft have become a real strength of the Federation fleet. Never underestimate the value of flak frigates.

They are, fighter get wrecked by antifighter ships. In a PvP match any advantage the Typhon is ruined by them.
