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.

No, he didn't ruin Star Trek, he just created something completely different and generic and called it 'Star Trek'.

For all the Star Trek qualities they had, they may as well have been elongated episodes of the Power Rangers.

Heeeeeey now. That was mean! Nothing is that bad that it deserves to be comapared to that. I mean come on, I know it had it's flaws and all but even Power Rangers doesn't deserve that kind of comparison ;)

I'm pretty sure that it is possible to implement such ship designs, albeit I'd bet my butt on it that this is not the plan of the devs. Some time ago they posted a Axanar-wise fleet comparison of the Federation and Klingom Empire.


This contains the ships used for the playable factions, I believe. Nevertheless, you could model some of those purdy ships yourself and provide them as an addon to Axanar at some point! That would be awesome, to say the least. :)

Does anyone know how to modify the files so all of the Borg ships can assimilate? Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

Any thoughts of a mod for Homeworld Remastered? I think the team here could do wonders for that game once its out and the Axanar mod is done.

Better ask the team of Star Trek: Continuum. That would be a much more useful address for such requests.

Any chance of getting the abititly to have a second titan as an addon? and i mean an actual second titan, i did some research on it and i found out that it would have to a warp in abititly to do it and i was going to try to figure it out but im not sure how it would affected the ai.

on the topic of addons, is there any easy way to add a new station or use an existing one that is capturable and can build all neutral ships? i love the unknown flak frigates and cruisers.
