  Birthday Plans - Site News
  Posted by: Joelteon7 on 04-08-2007 @ 11:05 - Source: The site

Well, it's coming up to our birthday month (May) when we will be celebrating Armada File's FIFTH birthday...now that's some achievement, I assure you! Anyhow, thank you for your suggestions both on the forums and on here. We are still looking for more ideas, but I feel it is time for you guys to know about our plans and of certain...'events' you may want to be aware of. Modders, start your engines...

  • Freyr's Online Tournament. Well, it's not quite a tournament, but it should involve a lot of fun. As you may or may not know, Freyr is our expert in playing (and kicking ass) at multiplayer Armada 2, so we have a challenge for you: We want SEVEN of you to try and take down our ONE Freyr. Odds are a bit crazy, right? But this is Freyr, so we have confidence in him for kicking ass.

    There are however three things needed:
    - A map that gives someone 7x the resources OR 7 people less resources, enough space for all and enough space for major explosions. If someone could do this and balance it well, you would be officially recognised as Armada II Files' honourable map maker...also, the map has to be called 'Frey's Fort' stick out tongue
    - A group of seven either brave or crazy souls to team-up in an attempt to take down our juggernaught. *Adviser - When I mean brave or crazy, I mean it. He doesn't waste any time...trust me, I speak from experience*
    - A screen recorder (preferably with sound) to capture either side's demise. With any luck Freyr will have one up and we can upload that, but videos from different perspectives are more than welcome.

    The winners would be branded as heroes (or hero) of the Armada 2 Files community, so it's up to you to set and arrange a date for all 8 of you to play-on, using the stock 1.1 game.

  • Modding Contest Prize = The winner, acclaimed in status of being the constructor of the Armada II Files Flagship!
    -The contest is very simple. It can be for any of the Star Trek (keeping to the roots of the game) Alpha Quadrant races. However, it's not quite THAT simple, it never is stick out tongue You have a set of requirements, as decided by me, on making this ship. Whilst the size of each is entirely upto you, you must include them and have a working ship by the end of it (bonus points awarded to those mods which have ALL the works, such as build-buttons, not just a SOD, textures and working ODF). So, what are these requirements, you ask?

    - Must have 2, 3, 4 or 5 nacelles. No more, no less. Bonus points awarded to those who use a more interesting choice of those amounts AND pull it off well.
    - Must have at least 1 assault cannon on the ship model that is visible. (My idea is a big-stinking gun that stands out, of course it doesn't have to be quite as noticeable wink)
    - Must be able to fit into the TNG time period (say, upto and including Nemesis).
    - Must be of a grand design. Whilst we do love the good destroyer and scout ship, we want something that can truly represent the site, so cruiser upwards should be your thinking.

    As for how you go about making it, that is entirely upto you. It could be a brand-new ship that you start from scratch or you could do a funky kit-bash. That being said, there are some rules to follow. Breaking them will result in an automatic disqualification.

    - If you're kit-bashing someone else's parts, make sure you receive permission to do so AND provide credits. Similarly to standard rules, breaking this will result in standard procedures coming into effect. C'mon though, it's for fun, so we shouldn't have any of this.
    - Do not submit ships that already exist! The contest is to create new-ones, not to re-introduce older ones!
    - Follow the set-of requirements given to you. They're there for a reason stick out tongue
    - All standard rules for submitting a mod.

    To submit your entry, to be done before May 25th send it in the usual way, but when you send the e-mail, PLEASE put in your subject header "Contest Entry". Whilst your file won't be added till after the winner is put up on the 30th as to give it time to glory, all ships will be going up, just like normal submits. So, the more you throw into this, the more you'll get out. Ahem, start your modding!

  • Themed PoTD
    Yup. Whilst we have our own special one being worked on, courtesy of Gavin1701, we want YOU to submit pictures which you feel capture the mood of the celebrations. We'll start posting them 7 days before the day and on the day it self...well, you'll want to keep an eye-out all day because we can guarantee you something interesting will happen to the PoTD...I say no more. Similarly to the mod contest though, make sure when you submit your in-game picture that the title clearly lets us know it is for the event. Obviously, if a lot of you submit stuff, we'll be unable to show you all of them as PoTD's, but never fear, because we'll make sure that you are still able to view them all.

As for what else we intend on doing, well there's a whole bundle of fun planned!
- A revised single player campaign mission featuring epic sides caught in a seemingly endless battle. (Oh yes, it WILL feature donuts!)
- A bit of a change of colour to parts of the site.
- A new feature to be implemented permanently.
- A horde of files.

We hope this wets your appetite stick out tongue So, you guys have a lot to be getting on with...well, chop chop! You only have just over a month!

Happy Easter - The Armada Files Staff
