File Description

The ships to-be-available in BCS's Armada mod. Released as a standalone pack, so people has to chance to test them in QB and multi player. This doesn't have the features of Armada, like ship construction or research, but they offer a different approach at game play against the stock BC, or the high-quality Kobayashi Maru mod.

############################################################################################################################
Its  ##HIGHLY##  advisable that you use this 1.1 instalation ##WITHOUT## additional mods and for exclusive multiplayer use.
############################################################################################################################

Instalation:
------------

1) Unpack into BCs instalation folder. Overwrite files if prompted
2) Open BCs configuration panel and DISABLE the "Stock Ships" mutator. Enable the Extra ships and mods and Stock Systems mutators
3) If you enter either QB or multiplayer, you should see the ships grouped under Armada, or as Federation ships and ;Romulan ships"


Known bugs:
-----------
1) Icons wont show up in the tactical view in multiplayer (they do show up in QB and in the ship selection menus, tho)
2) ships will appear as ??? in the multiplayer ship selection screen, but they have the icons to identify them.
3) Some ships wont ;see; targets unless the sensors are boosted to 125%. Thats to prevent fleet messes in QB.

In case of an undetected bug appearing, error reports can be sent to

Recommendations:
---------------

- Although this is a lag-free pack, its advisable not to use more than 35 ships/stations in QB (total) and no more than 15 pulse-based ships/stations (total).
- Better played with enhanced graphics off.
- A bigger ship doesnt mean a better ship.
- Destroyers shouldnt face Battleships alone. Although they might out-gun them, they cant out-last them
- Romulans are, in average, stronger than their Federation counterparts, but Federation phasers are longer.
- Light Cruisers are a good choice to support Destroyers or Carriers.
- The Venator doesnt fit a cloaking device. Otherwise, it would be unstoppable.
- Torpedoes arent eternal. They are better used within 20 km of the target, although they can reach 35 km if they are shot to a static target.
- The Quantum II type (Defiant, Steamrunner) is slightly inaccurate, but does great damage. Without shields, its critical.
