Activision KILLED star trek armada.
If it wasn't for the mod community making ships, stations, or just complete total conversions by gamers it would have not sold as many copies.
The game programmers were cool too. They planned ahead when armada 2 came out since armada 1 was a mod fest. They made most development tools
available like map editors, and model viewers. It was fun to make your own ships and stations or try out other people´s creations.
To this day I have not found another game that imported as much alternate Sci-fi into it as armada by moders. Everything from Babylon 5 to Futurama.
Hell even the ship from galaxy quest. EVERYTHING. Manuals, HUGE communities on many forums in its hay day, everything you could want to never let the
game get old. I still have my mod around. I play it once a year just to see if it still works. I tend to move the folder around allot and its huge.
Anyways, Activision released 1 patch for it and said good bye. I doubt they even realized how big of a following they had with the Star trek Armada
franchise. Fans were screaming for an Armada 3, they let it die due to bad marketing and retards doing the numbers as far as potential sales.
They get a big thumbs down from me.
