I was wanting to tell people here my idea for a complete revamp of armada 2. It would have brand new races a brand new style of play,I was thinking of making a new game type that is based more for clans vs clans instead of everyone having different races have everyone working as a team with everyone having different assignments for instance 1 person would be the admiral he would be in charge of making the fleets and keeping the main base safe and building on to it and getting resources.The other members would be in charge of the fleets he builds.If I was to explain this whole idea it would take a while but if you have ever played battlefield2 you would kindof no the way im going with this.Anyway please post your feed back as to rather this would be a success.This will have nothing to do with startrek we will just be using the engine armada 2 was created on.
It's a good idea, but I simply don't think Armada II will be able to handle this. :(
The hardest thing I can think of is making that new game mode there will have to be alot of scripting for that to take place.I guess theres only 1 way to find out if it can handle it,if me and my team could pull this off it might get armada 2 back going strong again atleast I hope.
The cake is a lie.There is no cake.

Errrm, the game always comes with this, in multiplayer mode. Armada option let's you decide, so long as your're the same team and race, to contorl teh same race. Although the officer count and resources are shared, you have multiple controller's over the race. Perhaps one for offensive options and the other managing resources etc. It's already there.
Thats good news because now I know the game can handle it.But it wont be the same it will be a brand new game a complete revamp.
A good idea as long as it doesn't involve editing any of the hardcoding.
