Current Known Issues:
>The Borg Unimatrix Transwarp Ability is currently not working as intended, expect this to be updated in a later release.
this is going to take a wile to sort through. Hows that TLE addon coming?
Oberth-class in Picard's ability. :o
Finally my Miranda gets a colleague in arms...
do i still need large add aware? if so iv not got it once iv extracted the files?
You may not have to apply it again if you've done so for previous versions, but it can't hurt to do it again. If you so choose, you can redownload LAA here: Techpowerup.com
Has the 'Flagship Victory' mode been addressed yet?
What was wrong with it?
He might be talking about the Flagship being count as a "capital ship" and not a "frig"
Flagships were just considered normal Capital Ships instead of being like they were in SoaSE:Rebellion. Example: the Flagships had special abilities to help them escape from combat, take reduced damage and deal increased damage. In addition, they had increased hitpoints, shields, and a generally larger size which distinguished them from their capital ship variants.
I will put it on the list of things to address in the next update. And this goes for anyone reading: if there are any other concerns or bugs, please, please do not hesitate to let us know as soon as possible! If we did not address an issue you were aware of in this update, it was because we (the devs) were not aware that the issue existed. We very much rely on beta tester and player feedback to address any issues we may have missed.
flagships have their own entity files so you could do anything you wanted with them. on CTA the devs just took a capital file and put the flagship ability on it and added it to the player entity file. so it's not that there is something wrong with them it's just how to devs made them. I'm working on an addon to make them more like the vanilla but I'm just going slow at it
Must I use special maps for random events ? I only play on a small 22 planets map and never see any of them.
also it seems that i miss the special damage effects for the ships, but i have everything execpt ship bump on highest
I'm having a bit of a problem, lots of the textures aren't loading for myself or my friend who also downloaded it. Sabre blinks back and forth and the Ambassador has nothing at all. Mouse cursor keeps disappearing and game crashing, for both of us after having verified files and reinstalled the mod.
the textures issue is a known sins bug, you have to set graphics to low and back to high, as for crashing this means LAA is not set correctly please follow our installation guide for more details.
Hello again Team ''Star Trek Armada 3 Mod'' for Sins of a Solar Empire.
Once again: Thanx a L O T for Your "Star Trek Armada 3: 1.2.1 - A call to arms" Release. It's only getting better and better for each new release(s).
And once again: A 1 0 0 0 Thanks for Your ''Star Trek Armada 3 Mod'' Project in the First place. What You have done so far looks G R E A T.
Some wishes to a future Version:
- Please also make it possible to:
1.: Update / upgrade Your Outpost(s) to a full Starbase after you have researched The Starbase.
1a.: Upgrade / update Your Starbase(s) to The Unity Station after you have researched The Unity Station when you play as either The Federation or as The Klingons.
2.: Have the Deep Space Nice station as an Outpost when playing as The Federation. Also in Federation Colours instead of Cardassian Colours when playing as The Federation.
3.: Have up to 3 (three) Starbase(s) or Outpost(s) in your planet's gravity well for A L L play-able factions / races via The Research Tree. Just like this:
4.: Expand your planet's gravity well up to the double size for A L L play-able factions / races via The Research Tree.
5.: Have The Ferengi as a Neutral faction / race you can't fight & only can do trading (Buisness) with when you play as The Federation, The Klingons, The Romulans, The Cardassians or as The Dominion.
- Please also give The Starbase(s) 99 Slots so that The Starbase(s) can become The Fear of The Galaxy (i.e. The Ultimade Defence & Economy for A L L play-able races / factions). Just like this:
- Please also add The Dominion as an independent faction / race.
Personally I find The Cardassians to be the weakest race / faction You have done / created so far.
- Please also add ”Species 8, 4 , 7, 2” as a race / faction you can play.
It could be Fun to be ”Species 8, 4 , 7, 2” vs The Borg, since The Borg can't assimilate ”Species 8, 4 , 7, 2”.
If You have not already done it, then please also ”join forces” with The People behind Fleet Operations so that You can exchange both Knowledge, Experiences & Materials with each other.
Personally I'm playing Your ''Star Trek Armada 3 Mod'' for Sins of the Solar Empire while I'm waiting for Them (The People behind Fleet Operations) to release Their ''Version 4.0'' of Fleet Operations.
Still (in My opinion): You should also create Your own Game-Engine so that You are not limited to the Iron Engine of Sins of the Solar Empire. This is also something that The People behind Fleet Operations has done. (read: The ezEngine - > Ezengine.net).
Anyway: Please keep up A L L Your good work at Your ”Star Trek Armada 3 Mod” Project in the future.
Please also take the time You need to make things work properly instead of hurrying an only half-working release – as Microsoft did with both Windows ME & Windows Vista.
To the one(s) of us that can't wait untill Your next release: Please keep us informed about what You are doing (i.e. what You are working on) for your next release :-D – both here at ModDb & at Facebook.
Personally I have now passed the ages of 35, so I – personally - no longer expect things to appear ''Magically'', In a hurry or Over Night.
P.S.: I'm Sorry if I sound T O O demanding or T O O dominating: My head is S O O Full of “Crazy” ideas.
P.P.S.: To ”Mr. Gul Dukat”: I MY opinion (humble opinion): Your voice sounds closer to Weyoun from The Vorta than as Mr. Gul Dukat.
09 August 2015: Now that I have got Windows 10 Home as a free Update / Upgrade from Windows Update, The Text / Font Size has now become to large inside Your ”Star Trek Armada 3 Mod” Project.
thanks for the many suggestions a lot of them sadly we are limited by the engine on, as for our next project, then check out Axanar Strategic Operations, we are actually working with the Axanar film Makers!

>> sadly we are limited by the engine
Then please create Your own Engine or please Reverse Engineer the Iron Engine of SOASE as much as You can to Your own needs.
I know that before The People of Fleet Operations created their own Engine (The ezEngine), they managed to Reverse Engineer as much as They could do of The Engine of ST Armada 2 to their own needs of Fleet Operations. Perhaps You could do the same with the Iron Engine of SOASE.
Or chech this out: Oxidegames.com :-D
>> for our next project, then check out Axanar Strategic Operations, we are actually working with the Axanar
>> film Makers!
Well, I'm looking forward to Your Axanar Strategic Operations project :-D.
Forgive me for being skeptical. I just want to watch it (Your Axanar Strategic Operations project) in action.
Yay! Thank you devs for continuing to perfect this already excellent game. It boggles me that your team has produced the greatest Trek game ever released - FOR FREE - than the many badly designed and then abandoned official Star Trek games. You've displayed more resolve in backing up your product than I've seen from for profit productions. It's all terribly impressive.
Thank you, too, for addressing the Borg Unicomplex / transwarp hub issue. It's an issue I hadn't seen anyone else bring up, and I waited as long as I did to mention this bug here on your site because I was 90% positive I was making some incredibly dumb mistake that was transparently obvious to everyone else.
Finally, while this is in no way a bug, have the devs looked at the difficulty the Borg have with routine assimilation while the Cardassian faction captures vessels with remarkable ease? I'm sure this is down to a balancing issue, but I've captured three times as many ships as a Cardassian than I ever did as the Borg. Given that assimilation is the raison de e'tre of the Collective, I find this choice a little puzzling.
thanks for the support ill look at this for 1.2.2
For some reason the Random Event's button is greyed out, I can't select it, no matter what map I select. Any ideas on how to fix? I feel like I'm missing out a bit.
Greetings, first of all thanks for that Mod. Just Perfect. But i can't activate the this version. I'f i try to the games says, An Error oncrourd and the game must be closed.
Any ideas what went wrong?
hi guys.... when i play the Borg and i have an AI Borg ally.. why is it the AI borg keep asking about sending an Envoy??? there's no Envoy ship on Borg right?? pls fix this...... thanks

fist ship Rasilak is 360+60+0 supply is 4 armor 1600 shield 1000 phaser 18 torpado 15
Scarab is 400+25+20 supply is 1 armor 1400 shield 1000 phaser 17 torpedo 15
The scarab is to much and two weak. I think the Scarab should be 280+25+20 supply 3 armor 1 hall 1400 shield 1000 phaser 20 torpedo 15. This would make the Scarab Economical to build in large numbers.
