How do you either gain access to the Borg or fight the Borg in SOA?

There seems to be alot of Ships that I can not build (atleast in the Fed/Kling/Rom side) like the Constitution Class and Shelley Class. How do I gain access to these ships?

Well, first off, if you've still actually got any of those ships in your copy of the mod, then your copy of the mod is old. ;)

That said, to access the Borg, you've really only got one option--custom maps. There used to be a couple of custom maps made for SoA 0.85 (IIRC) that let you fight the Borg at either Wolf 359 or the Typhon Expanse; somebody may even still have them somewhere.

For using other friendly ships, your option is either make yourself a custom map featuring them, or replace an existing ship with them, although the latter option may cause texture corruption.

Nope, I got the newest Mod. See I looked at the site and saw those ships and others as well and notice you can not build them. Are there any custom maps for this newer version that involve historic battles from the Dominion War?

Not really. You see, in the rush to get a playable product out to you fans, only the buildable (aka actual at the time working and balanced...) ships were left in the zip for the last release.

You also have to remember that the stuff on the site is representative of all the mods the team is/was working on, not just SOA... [img]smile.gif[/img]

Perhaps someone would be kind enough to dig up an old 0.8.5 release.

As far as SoA 9.5 is concerned that is the final build of the mod. We pretty much hit the limit of what we can do with the HW engine. Theres nothing more we can do. Plus most of the people that helped build the mod have moved on to bigger, and better things.

If you have an older copy, what pierce said is true. You will need to make custom missions to use said ships. I remember the old wolf 359 map, and it was in the v8.X series of SoA.

I don't remember either of those maps... [img]smile.gif[/img] Do you remember which version they're for?

Stress, I don't think that re-releasing old versions of the mod, even if they have features that newer versions don't, is necessarily a good idea... ;)

Sorry I don't remember for which version they are for. :( Check this ancient webpage for HW mods( there will be outdated links but maybe some still exist): http://www.thegamingunion.co.uk/users/f ... d-mods.zip

If you're willing to wait a few days you'll be able to play those maps against the new Borg ships in SW:I. [img]smile.gif[/img]

I was going to include all the old SOA Borg maps, plus a few modified ones. Like the DS9Assualt.

Imps vs. Cardassians! :D

EDIT: For anyone who is interested, I just finishing tweaking the Dominion vs. Borg map in SW:I, go here for pics.
