FleetOps Team, 2009-06-08

IMPORTANT: This patch is ONLY compatible to the full FO version 3.0.6, installing it over any other prior version will result in a corrupt installation.

The first patch for the latest Fleet Operations full version has been released. It fixes several bugs and changes the balancing.

The most important changes:

  • Hovering Special Weapon buttons now shows their range on selected ships
  • Further AI adjustments and improvements. AI players have been renamed to Normal, Hard and Merciless
  • Collision deals greatly reduced damage against stations
  • Rescaled the Borg construction costs on most vessels, causing reduced cost for smaller Borg units, but reduced the rate at which Connections accumulate
  • Borg vessels won't continue movement after using "Refresh Cycle"
  • It is now possible to use normal warp-in if you have less then three free warp-in slots. As Star Fleet has no ships to spare, vessels exceeding your warp-in cap will leave the sector immediately
  • Shield Breaking Torpedo may now target stations, energy costs increased
  • Fixed a bug in the craft ai causing a multiplayer out of sync issue

Is it just me, or does the AI Borg not build actual cubes? Something I noticed before that I have never faced off against a cube.

An excellent improvement in the realism of it, finally got to try it all out and it's quite a mod! The descriptions I've been reading for a while make it sound like a completely different (and way better) game, but the descriptions don't do it justice when compared to playing the mod! Anyone who hasn't played it is missing out on something that will show you first-hand how much better Armada can be, and I'm not just kissing a$$ with this comment, usually I don't give a crap about anything that goes on on the internet these days...so this is my honest review...three words: good, da*n good!


Try it on Merciless mode, at least once, you'll love it even if you're not good at playing the game! If you're not prepared, get ready for a real struggle!


Fleet Ops shows how far Armada II can go! This is the kind of product you get when the customers receive what they want, and the team does it all for the pride of doing it! Too bad most companies can't be like that. I remember the 8-bit days when there were good games and there were bad games, and then there were games that were ehhh, in the middle. Armada II was a fairly-decent game, not bad but not legendary, more like in the middle. Armada II is 4/10, Fleet Ops on Armada II is 10/10. Fun, better graphics, more options, more strategy, more realistic, and I'm not as aware that I'm playing a game, more like I'm actually a real Starfleet Admiral, sending ships into the fray and not knowing if they'll come back, or if it might be a massacre, or the yearning for victory that might be fulfilled.
