Report RSS A Call to Arms released!

After almost a year of hard work it is my honor to tell you that we've finally released the stand alone expansion.

Posted by on

Ladies and Gentlemen, it is with great joy that I
can now say that it is out, it is live!

Thank you

Star Trek Armada 3 A Call to arms has been an incredible journey, our entire team has worked long and hard to bring you this version and I can safely say I am extremely proud of the result.

The effort and the dedication shown by the team is unlike any other mod I've worked on before and I hope we can equally make you enjoy what we have given you here today.

Armada 3 A Call to Arms will allow you to play as the 4 races in the previous release and the new Cardassian/Dominion faction. All previous factions have been polished and updated to make sure we bring you the up most quality we could achieve in the engine.
Now you may be aware we promised to provide a full manual at release, unfortunately due to my recent accident I was unable to finish these but I will get them done as soon as possible.

The War is raging on

Whats Next

We will ensure support for A Call to Arms but due to engine limitations will not be able to add more content. The engine is streched to the limit and at this moment already requires you to use the large address aware tool to play stably.

This is not the end however, as we have a surprise announcement later!

Be wary, if you do have missing textures or random crashes after installing LAA try installing the mod again.

If that fails, download the mod again. The servers are likely been taxed so some packets may be lost leading to a corrupt download.

Did you play a map with the *Locked* addendum? There the teams are forced to use the races named in the map-description.

Downloading now! Oh man, this is gonna be friggin awesome! Great job Devs! This has quickly become my favorite mod of anything, and I cant wait for this 1.4 GB download to finish so I can play Call to Arms!

Esit: Question. If I have already used the LAA(Large Address Aware) on my Sins exe, do I have to do it again? I wouldn't think so, but I would like to be sure.

Hats off to you guys. This is the best Star Trek Mod out there. I really hope you win the "best mod of the year" award. You really deserve it.

Now if you'll excuse me, the Romulans gotta do some treacherous stuff.

My game keeps on crashing/failing to respond i.e. I get a black screen for a few seconds then a minute later I get a black screen that stay up with the music still running. So I have to delete and redownload is the general idea so I will do that. Advise to fix this and will reply to my own comment if redownloading doesn't work

Things to check (in order):

- GFX Card drivers are up to date

- .NET Framework is up to date

- SOASE has had the integrity of its game cache checked

- STA3-CTA has been installed properly (delete old enabledmods.txt before adding in the new one)

- LAA enabled for the correct .exe

After playing the new version for a bit last night, I can safely say that you guys have done a great job with this update. What was a great mod, now offers an even more enjoyable and well-made experience.

Thanks to the entire team for all your hard work! You guys deserve at least a month at Risa.

Awesome! I've spent the whole day playing it!
As it is now, I'm sure it can easily be published as a separate game, not a mod. Fantastic job!

Buuuuut.... there are a couple of "things" (as I can't decide what to call them).
So where can we (can we?) write our thoughts/suggestions?

Amazing work team. Can i ask if any of you plan to make a real game and not a mod? You are more talented than most game devs. Looking at STO... you are head and shoulders above them in assets creation. Do you haver coders able to code well enough to start a game?

It's out ! Youhou ! Too bad the download on moddb sucks so much (I began downloading 3 hours ago and i'm only halfway through :O).

Would it be possible to have another way of download ? Perhaps a torrent with the zip version ? That would be much appreciated. If not, I'll keep trying until it works !

Who voices the Nova class? It sounds like the Mass Effect codex guy.

Not sure. It was the voice of the Venture scout in Star Trek: Armada II.

My guess is maybe. Google says Neil Ross did the voice for the Mass Effect codex. Neil Ross is also listed in the voice credits for Armada II.

Hello and amazing job on the Cardassians and other additions in the latest update. Sad to hear that the game is at it's limits but the modification itself is nonetheless amazing. I do the "Applaud the Mod" series on Youtube and although I've covered the mod fully in another video, here is a short *Update* video on this latest content patch. Thanks for all the awesome work over the years and I'm incredibly excited to hear what you will all be working on next. Youtube.com ---- Conor

I've been experiencing random game crashes as well. Here's the troubleshooting I've attempted so far:
*Verified software has been updated on graphics card
*Uninstalled/Re-installed both the Installer & Zip versions of STA3-CTA
*Verified LAA was setup correctly
*Re-downloaded both Installer & Zip version of STA3-CTA
*Verified the integrity of the game cache

My next step will be to uninstall the entire game and re-install it and hopefully that will work. I've been able to play about 15-30 minutes worth of the game and then it suddenly just closes without any error message at all. Any other suggestions I could try? STA3-CTA is awesome when I can play it! Nice work!

Be absolutely sure that your Sins.exe DOES NOT have the "read-only" setting ticked when you apply LAA. If read-only is enabled, then the .exe will not be properly updated.

Not sure if this is the issue, if it is let me know.

Hey after uninstalling/re-installing the game, and checking the "read-only" I'm still experiencing random crashes. I verified .NET was updated as well (forgot to mention that in prior comment).
