Fleet Operations is a popular skirmish and multiplayer orientated total conversion modification for Activision's real-time strategy game Star Trek Armada II. The project's goal was not only to create a simple "modification" but as total conversion to make Armada II a worth successor to the second best selling Star Trek game Star Trek: Armada (behind Interplay's Star Trek: 25th Anniversary by a small, but fair margin).
Version 3.0 includes advanced graphics, a whole new user interface, completly replaced ship models, 5 balanced races with totally new gameplay and tons of new possibilities making Armada II a real real-time strategy multiplayer game.
The first quarter of 2010 was quite busy for ModDB, we had our 2009 MOTY awards ending as well as our Divinity 2 concept art competition, traffic was high and the releases were quite varied and unique. January was riding off the excitement and buzz of the MOTY with a very large month of featured releases (twelve to be exact). With a slow decline of releases in February and March. The quality however never dwindled, with some huge releases coming out and amazing modding fans all over the globe.
Company of Heroes: Eastern Front surprised everyone when they released in January 2010 with a brand new faction in Company of Heroes that has never been done before. A trail blazer if there was any! Human Error is a well polished well planned mod that follows the story of a handful of Combine Soldiers in the Half-Life universe. More then just a simple corridor shooter Half-Life mods have known to become. Kingdoms Collide a multiplayer third person melee experience that lays the fantasy on think giving players choice on how they wish to fight and the skills they want to develop.
Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like Star Trek Armada II: Fleet Operations. We love games like Star Trek: Armada II that have opened themselves up to modding. Because of communities like Workshop, Nexus, Curse, RTSL, GameBanana and Mod DB, more games support modding today than ever before.
Let's celebrate modding
As mods play a bigger role in the future of gaming, we believe it is important to recognize the effort the teams behind the work put in, giving us countless hours of enjoyment while asking nothing in return. We have the power to change our games and that needs to be celebrated to ensure it remains a big part of PC gaming's future.
It all started
In 2015, when the paid modding dispute left many gamers and modders worried about the direction the industry is headed. Things have since settled down, but we believe it is important to continue this small tradition to show we are not alone in our love for mods, and the open platforms that embrace them.
