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.

I have a problem regarding the mod...When I first got the mod I was able to get it to work after being informed about the LAA. The problem now is that the mod is crashing Sins even though the LAA has been done correctly. I do not know what is the matter only because I have gone back and redid the LAA with it providing the same problem of playing about 15-20 mins of the game then crashing. I love this mod and I know the community helps with problems so I am asking can anyone help?

Is your sins/exe in read-only mode? Apparently LAA won't work properly if that is checked.

We may never see them. That's ok with me. I'd rather see 1.2 and then the Axanar project really kick off.

The best guide you'll find is by playing the game with people who knows it.

Actually, I spoke with the others about this two days ago. We still plan on releasing them sometime after 1.2 is out. I'll be working on writing them up shortly after we release.

Really fun mod that I wish I could play non-stop, but the stuttering that occurs every few seconds every several seconds is really annoying and ruins it for me. :(

Upcoming patch to be released in the very near future fixes this. AI processing has been greatly streamlined and remains a challenge.
