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.

By each type of ship do you mean what is distinguished by the shipyard as frigates, cruisers, and capitals? If so that is not possible sins treats ships as A) capital-ships or B) frigates. Or if you are trying to limit by individual ship say light frigate for example you run into the same problem.

Regarding the new patch please reapply LAA to see if that fixes some issues.

The Large Address Aware-utility, provided in the download of CTA and mentioned several times in the install instructions and on this website, especially in the comment section.

When applied to the .exe-file of Sins of a Solar Empire Rebellion, it allows the game to use more than 2 gb of memory (up to 3 acutally), therefore preventing it from crashing due to the massive additions by this mod (and other mods as well).

Due to the new patch for Sins the LAA-patch got revoked, as the patch replaced the .exe-file with a new one. You will need to re-apply the LAA to get the mod up and running again.

You will need to:

I. Extract the LAA.exe to e.g. the "Sins of a Solar Empire Rebellion"-folder located under [...]/SteamApps/common/ in the Steam-directory.

II. Make sure, that the "Sins of a Solar Empire Rebellion.exe" (whoever came up with this frackin stupid name for an .exe-file, anyways?) has the "read only"-tickbox UNCHECKED under its file properties.

III. Execute the LAA.exe and browse for the aforementioned Sins.exe, select it, then check the box regarding the LAA-2gb-switch and hit apply.

IV. Play, be happy and grateful.

I'm not at my computer at the moment, hence my question, but what did this new update change? I can't seem to find anything about it online. If there is indeed a problem, we will certainly be looking into it before we release CTA 1.2.

It kicks LAA off as it changes the EXE, you need to re-apply it.
