Fleet Operations 3.13 available – For those of you who missed it, Fleet Operations version 3.13 was released back in July adding several new features to the already amazing modification for Star Trek Armada 2.

When Armada 2 was released in 2001, its online playing capabilities were nothing too extraordinary for its time. However, it is remarkable that even now after nearly 10 years its online channels over at GameSpy still weren’t just turned off like it happend quite a lot with much newer game titles.

Still, the age of this service creates a few problems, usually resulting in various connection problems where players can’t join or host games, despite all firewall and router settings were set up correctly. This deteres a lot of people from playing Fleet Operations online.
Our online community began looking for alternative ways of playing with others over the internet and found not too long ago Tunngle. Tunngle is a quite new peer to peer VPN client, that allows people to meet in a lobby based chat and start games over the internet. Through some dedicated people from our online gaming community, Fleet Operations got its very own lobby in their network.
