  Star Trek Armada 2: Art of War Announced! - Mods

Always good to announce a new mod in development, but, this wouldn't be exactly the first post about this mod. 12 days ago, I posted this article about a seemingly odd e-mail notification about a new mod in the works. I must admit, it was a bit of a joke by both me and the mod's developer, (Wrathof)Achilles. Why? Well...just testing, really stick out tongue There are other reasons, but they don't need to be explored now. Just know that there is a kick-ass mod coming your way and sooner than you think, in the form of a playable beta featuring two races; the Romulans and the Dominion.

Here's the 'press release' straight from the developer's mouth,

Quote:
The first release will be a beta with only the Romulans and Dominion complete and available to play, I am doing this because I wish to see if there is any interest or any areas I could improve.

I started this mod because I lost my Armada disk at the time so I tried to remake it on Armada 2, because of this the build times, shields, weapons, resource etc are very similar to A1. Warp is removed, crew is accumulated at starbases only, Dilithium is the only resource.

Anyone who has played my Armada 1 Alliances mod will recognise the game play here, similar AI, same research structure and many of the same models. Since I work alone it may not have the content of some of the larger mods but as long as I enjoy playing it I am happy. I also made quite a few new models whilst making it, and some are still to be replaced, for example the Vor-Rexus (large Romulan warbird) wont be in.

The AI is a bit crazy for nice calm screenshots, and remember it's still in production but the beta should be ready in a week or two.

Lastly...

This mod is as cannon as the Borg are friendly!!!

... and I hate the feds stick out tongue


For anyone who played Alliances they'll know that the Ai is suitably...ahem, powerfull. In deed, you can relieve the Armada 1 Alliances feeling of panic when a horde of Sphere's and Cube's come flying at you when you've only managed to work out how to get a cruiser out there (true story...sufficed to say, my Prometheus didn't survive).

Anyhow, expect a mod profile up shortly and the beta available to you soon. For now, enjoy a variety of pictures and the splash image for Art of War!

Wow!! I can't wait for this mod to come out! I have always loved the Romulans and have been waiting for new Romulan shipyards and starbases. I also love the Dominion and I was wondering if you guys are kinda doing this mod as kind of a add in to the Dominion War(like an untold story of the Dominion War)?
I have one other question, you stated above that this mod is going to be only Romulans and Dominion and in most of the screenshots you have Cardassian Nor stations and even a few Cardassian ships, so I was wondering if you still only planned for just the two races or actually thought about adding more?
Anyways it looks awsome and i can't wait for Art of War to arrive.

Sorry, maybe should be clearer; the beta will feature only those two races, but the mod will feature all stock ones.

the Dominion comprise the Cardassians and the Jem'Hadar, in a futures release most likely the breen aswell.

I dont have a story, I just mod, but I should imagine it would several years post Nemesis seeing the small amount of remaining Jem'Hadar swearing loyalty to the Cardssians... most likely through some trick of genetic manipulation. The resulting super-power seeks to expand it's borders into Romulan space while the Federation and Klingons are busy repelling a large Borg assault.

Talking with Achilles, I think the Ai may be edited a slight bit, so that easy will give you a damn chance against those hundreds and hundreds of Sphere's and the armada of Cube's and the...you get my point stick out tongue

Don't worry, I'm fairly certain the Ai will be horrific and keen on genocide of your armada. I also think that's partly what the beta is for, so people can try out the different Ai levels.

of course DS9 will be in it, well the DS9 (Nor type) starbase will be, the actual DS9 will most likely appear in the missions or as a hidden secret for the Federation (with starfleet weapons)

Hello,

Reading about the lost cd.
If wanted, I have an Armada cd. I think it's in good condition, but it doesn't play with my new driver software.
