Back to News Listing Armada 2526: Supernova Is Updated

Posted: Wednesday, June 1, 2011 by Sean Drummy

Type: Press Release

Improvements, changes, fixes, and more have just appeared on the scanners!

Matrix Games, Slitherine (www.slitherine.com) and Ntronium Games (www.ntronium.com) are proud to release the comprehensive 1.03 update for their expansion to the hailed turn-based strategy/real-time tactical blend, Armada 2526: Supernova. The update comes with some improvements to how the AI handles relations with other players, various tweaks to gameplay, a fix for an issue with saving games, and some additional bug fixes as well.

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “Armada 2526: Supernova is not simply a small add-on that brings some new content to Armada 2526, it’s a massive expansion that improves the game in virtually every aspect. Couple that with the exiting new ability to engage in multiplayer and you’ve got a recipe for near limitless intergalactic fun!”

Armada 2526: Supernova gives you 4X more. More to explore, more to exploit, more to exterminate and expands you’re gaming horizons by letting you challenge your friends via LAN or PBEM play. There are new star and planet types to discover, and more than 30 special features to make each star system distinctive. You may encounter tachyon storms, psychic plants, primitives or find abandoned alien technology that advances your own research. Two new races, with their own ships and special characteristics, await your discovery.  Befriend them, play as them, or exterminate them as you wish.

A new trade system lets you construct networks to trade valuable commodities between the stars, both between your own worlds, and with other players. Alien relics, rare minerals, tourists, or even natural anti-matter, your freighters carry them all. Choke an enemy with trade embargoes, or blockade their planets with stealth ships operating behind the lines. But trade and tourism bring less welcome visitors too. The new espionage system lets you plant spies to gather information or steal technological secrets, or drop special forces that can sabotage defenses before an attack.

Fifty new technologies open up new strategies and tactics. Confound your enemies with hard to detect stealth ships, jam their missiles with electronic warfare, build fighter stations to defend your planets, and blitz defenses with stormtroopers. Research Gaia to make everyone happy, or grind them under your heel with a variety of more powerful warships and upgrades weapons.

Get the update here. The update is comprehensive and will bring all previous versions of Armada 2526: Supernova to 1.03. Get more information on Armada 2526: Supernova from its official product page.

Monday, April 24, 2017

Let’s take a trip back in time to about 2002. TOAW exists, but as “ACOW”. You’re a newbie just starting out with the game. If you perused the manual you might have seen these few items: 
 
Individual battles are resolved in a series of tactical rounds. Each player turn is divided into ten tactical rounds, and individual battles begin on the round that most closely corresponds to the proportion of the attacking units’ movement allowance expended before the combat. … 
 
Battles continue until all units of one side have broken off, but not beyond tactical round 10. …
