We already discussed the veteran vessels in the past newsposts, but havent talked much about the Borg. The collective will get a large redo in 3.0.6 touching many of the game mechanics.
The change you might spot first when playing the new patch as the Borg should be the missing priority resource. It has been replaced by a new one, called Collective Connections. They represent the number of possible connections to the collective, required to operate large Borg vessels. Collective Connections are used to construct military vessels, just like priority was before, but they are consumed by construction, similar to Supplies. Collective Connections do automatically accumulate over time or be directly acquire by spending resources. In addition there are several research options to increase the connections rate.
Another important change is the way Borg modules are selected. The next patch will feature a complete new Borg construction menu, allowing a player to select all models at once and preview the resulting vessels and its costs before spending resources. You will now also see a construction animation for Borg vessels.
Each row represents one module slot. You can easily select your modules. Modules that can no longer be built due to limitations will be shown in red.
As a small extra unit, the Borg Detector, known from Armada 1, will be back in action to scout for targets suited for assimilation!
