Post news RSS Star Trek Armada 3: Four Days!

The Countdown is on! Less than four days to go now and we're finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. Nearly all of our polishing elements are complete and we're starting to feel really happy with the product we'll be releasing.

Posted by on

Hello ladies and gentlemen. First off I'd like to say a huge thanks to everyone who's voted for us this time round and have got us into the top 100 of the Mod of the Year competition for the second year running!


Our team has been working like crazy recently as sadly Max, our project lead had an accident and has broken his elbow. He was in surgery today and hopefully all has turned our well. With a bit of luck he'll be able to dance the YMCA again in a few weeks. We'd love everyone to give him a bit of love and tell him to get well soon!


"Max hears that he'll be needing a prostate exam before surgery "


Sadly this does mean that we may not be able to implement one or two new assets. We were really hoping to get a re-do of the Polaris Federation Dreadnought in game before release, but sadly we may not be able to. We will of course be releasing a patch for this asset if we're unable to get it in over the weekend. Just in case, please take a look a Wiley's amazing work on the model. We already have a model in-game that's great (and indeed is another Wiley creation so don't worry, you won't be missing out!


Last but not least, I'd like to talk about the installation of CTA when it's released on Monday. I can confirm that we're going to be releasing two versions of CTA. One in an installer package much like the 1.0 installer and one in a more traditional ZIP format. These should be 100% compatible with each other so you'll be able to play multiplayer even if your friends used the other package.

From Monday onward, we'll hopefully be getting involved with the community and many members of our team will be looking to play some multiplayer matches with the community when they can. There are a number of amazing people our there whom have offered us the use of their TeamSpeak servers so we can talk to you directly too . We'll be posing on Twitter and our Facebook page with more details about that so please like or follow us to find our how to get involved with our community matches!

Thanks to all of you whom have been so involved with us over the past year, and a massive thank you to all the other modders that have helped us out and shared their time with us and given us such a fantastic sense of community and cooperation. Sins community: you da real MVP.

It's the Final Countdown!!!
Best health Max.

Quick Question: do we delete the original files and this is a completely new download, or is it an addition to the previous files?

Most likely just run the installed they release Monday and it will patch the current 1.0 files to update all of the assets. Same goes for the ZIP package, just unzip and copy/overwrite files. I'm assuming it will happen this way but don't take my word for it.

As this is a completely new install, I would recommend backing up 1.0 (rename it, etc). I foresee some issues if you install over 1.0.

I've been watching this mod for a long time, if you guys don't win this year's MOTY I'm gonna be very disappointed!

Good luck on release day, and I wish Max a swift recovery! There's some serious talent in this team, and true dedication that you don't see very often today...

There is no need to thank us. You guys have stepped in and created the sort of Mod I and many others would love to make had we the skills. The level of detail and care in your work is truly superb. I cannot praise it highly enough.

No he broke his elbow shooting the new Star Trek. JJ yelled "Go" and everyone has to throw themselves from side to side to simulate the damage the Enterprise is taking. Max just got carried away. As usual. Get well soon.

Guys, what you have done, is nothing but fantastic, as a Star Trek Armada Fan back in the day, I've been keeping an eye on this mod, and have played previous versions of this (still playing it now) and it has been a blast, I am so looking forward for the new release on Monday 15th, keep it up guys and hopefully you'll win Mod of the Year, you deserve it.
