This is the long overdue 1.1 patch for Achilles' fantastic Armada 1 mod "Alliances", providing new races, ships and effects to Armada 1. The patch includes, but not limited to, new models, new ships/stations, altered stats and a couple of generic new features (special resource).
Considering the size of the original, this should be nothing to download in terms of fixing any bugs that were in it. A must have for those who use it and I recommend those who do not, get it and then get this and see what they've been missing. An excellent mod rounded up in quality, thanks Achilles :)
Note - It comes in an .exe and all changes/fixes can be viewed in the readme.
Star Trek Armada Alliances V1.1 Patch by WrathofAchilles aka Achilles ***INSTALLATION*** Just make sure you have a clean install of Star trek armada 1 with the 1.2 patch if needed. Ensure the Star Trek Alliances mod is installed. Run the exe (if you want it to install to a directory other that the default one you can change this) ***INFORMATION*** After releasing Star Trek Armada Alliance v1.0 it became apparent there were many errors causing crashes and reducing the game play experience. I have tried to correct all of these bugs and hope I have, if not then I guess there will be a patch 1.2 but hopefully this is it.
