File Description

This mod for Armada 2 will "spice up" the game by changeing the balence of things a little ;) It takes alot longer and takes more resources to build a battleship... but the power of them is also increased. This means that although it takes longer to build, you get alot of firepower at the end and the game becomes that little bit more intresting then the usual gameplay. This mod also modifies scouts, destroyers and cruisers as well. Not every race has the same ammount of modified ships, but the author says there still ballenced and so far i've seen no reason to dissagree. The mod also includes some ear-candy and a genreal modification making hits not causing so much crew loss which you will probably notice in game. :) Nice little mod.

Star Hawks Armada 2 Spiceup Mod


Thanks for downloading my very first Mod for Armada 2.
As the name indicates this mod will spice up Armada 2 a little.
The mod also slightly changes balance between the usual smaller ships/cruisers and the battleships. In general it will take much longer to assemble a battleship. This makes them more worthy in battle but also more powerful since their strengh is now increased because you need more time and resources to build one. However, this mod also modifies scouts, destroyers and cruisers as well. Even though not every race now has the same number of modified ships the ships are still balanced to each other.

Most pulse weapons of smaller crafts (scouts, destroyers) are modified as well. In order to keep balance I increased their firing frequencies by a specific factor but decreased the damage by the same factor.
Here is an example: Defiant pulse phaser: frequency 2.0( 1 shot per 2 seconds) damage( 7)
Modified: frequency 0.4 (almost 2 shots per second) damage (1.75)
7 divided by 4 equals 1.75. We should have a frequency of 0.5 (2 divided by 4).
I chose 0.4 since it sounds better for a fast firing pulse weapon and it does not really change balance.
As a matter of fact an instantaction game would not be of great difficulty with an AI only concentrating on battleships in the end of a game. In compensation of the long time the AI needs to build a battleship it has been modified so that it will now build more smaller ships during an instantaction game.
The mod also includes some ear-candy and a genreal modification making hits not causing so much crew loss which you will probably notice in game.
