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.

Your typical modern Word document wouldn't fit on many old drives.

And remember when floppy disks were actually floppy? Ah, the good old days.

Even if you had an old disc reader, you'd still have to find a program that could interpret whatever was on it. Not worth the effort, considering those old 8-inch discs could only hold a little over 1MB. Back in my uni days I wrote essays that took up more space. :D

When I was a kid we used to steal them from the school's computer room (the school had one computer, which had its own room :D ) and use them as frisbees. They flew well, as I recall.
