Major Update 4 is the latest version of the Major Update series: it fixes lots of bugs present in Major Update 3 and adds various new features that have been "missing" in MU3. Installation routine is the same as in the case of MU3.
1: You need to have a clean copy of Haegemonia: The Solon Heritage
2: Install Vector Prime v1.0 onto this copy
3: Install Major Update 4 onto it.
Theoretically it should be possible to apply Major Update 4 directly on top of Major Update 3 - this, however, is untested. Major Update 4 has the SSE and MP fix included, so you don't need to install it separately.

Major Update 4 includes lots of changes which you can check in detail here. Some of the most important changes include:

  • "Human" terraforming tree for all factions
  • Unique faction bonuses
  • New ships, revised techtree
  • Selectable Yuuzhan Vong invasions
  • Launcher and Random Map Generator v1.1
  • Totally rewritten, more powerful AI

We would like to encourage everyone to post their comments, reviews, suggestion or criticism. We have put a lot of work into turning Vector Prime into what it is now - and we hope that with so many months of hard work behind us, we can get you a couple of hours of entertainment.

Thanks for downloading, thanks for playing!

Hi there, I'm new in this forum.
I really enjoy this mod, it's great! but...I've a problem in loading multiplayer saved games, it's a 8 systems map, with 3 AI players + Yuuzan Vong invasions; once I colonize more than two systems and save game, MU4 crashes when try loading the game.
I executed TSH like administrator, shutted down the antivirus guard, tried many times to reinstall the program...no way to survive.
Anyone hints plz?

(running Win7 32 bit, but 'till last week I was on XP Pro and had the same problem)

which map did you try to play? And likely, this is haeg related, not VP.

Actually, this is well-known. The fact is, that no matter what way you mod TSH, if you do mod it, this problem will occur. If my assumption is correct, it has to do with TSH using some specific coding which can't be reinterpreted if you have changed the game.

Hello new guy here. Cool mod BUT my avira goes nuts about the
Launch Vector Prime.exe. Alerts something like ( tr drop steps rl 1) ?
And the VirusTotal did confirm it.
I did send the file there for a scan. And the MDB don't
let me post a link, but you can do the same by simply uploading
the file there. (just google virustotal)
So is it just a false alert or is it infected or just something harmless? Thanks.
Ps. The Executor SSD Really ROCK!!!

The Vector Prime Launcher was buit with a graphical development environment that today would count as somewhat outdated. For handling files, I used an extension object that could potentially be exploited to rampage your hard drive and rename/delete just about anything. But for the launcher, I only used that routine to remove some temporary files that are created during random map generation. (You can check that for yourself: start building a random map and while that is being generated you will see files appearing in your Vector Prime folder called random1.hgm random2.hgm, etc. These are removed when generation is over.)

So, to sum things up, it is correct to detect Launch Vector Prime as a potentially risky application, but it doesn't do anything bad at all, so I can assure you it is safe.

Hi everybody,
First I must apologize for my bad english.
I used to play the VP V3 and I just discovered the VP V4 yesterday.
That's great job by adding the executor and changed some things in the research tree and designs, seems the game start again for long hours of play.
However, I have some problems with the V4 I would share.
I have original Legion of Iron and Solon Heritage game with true cd-key.
I'm not playing multiplayers games.
Once both games are installed and cd-key prompted, I copy-paste the Heagemonia - Solon Heritage folder and rename it Heagemonia - Vector Prime.
Then I copy paste what I have in the 2008_06_19_HaegaSWMod_SW_Chronicles_e.rar file I downloaded on this site into Heagemonia - Vector Prime folder and overwrite files.
Is that the right way to install VP 1 or what ?
No installer as V3 or V4 ?

My first problem is : It's working anyway but can't choose a map in the skirmish mode neither any other parameters in the tabs. I have to replace HGMA.exe (8105984 octets V1.1.52.82) file by the original file HGMA.exe (8218628 octets no version available) it's the file installed by the CD by the way and only that allows me to choose a map and play a long hours game.
I can see V2.0 (=> which is original file) instead of v2.01(=> which should be the cutomised file) in the screen game once started.
I have this first problem from vector Prime V1 to V3 ... even it's working anyway.
Now I installed Vector Prime VP V4 it seems the IA is not working anymore. Enemys are very weak beside VP V3, they are not moving, not creating ships, no collonizations, nothing. I have 57M persons 12 planets in my empire when they have 3.7M onto 1 and only one planet after 5 hours of game.
What's going on ?
I tried to change IA level from "AttackEmpire" to "Agressive" in the Levels folder by using Haegemonia Explorer.exe with no results. Always equable IA. Quiet frustrating !
IA is very weak in VP V4.
I'll be glad if someone can help, I roll baked and play on V3 for lack of better.
Thank you for reading.
P.

Dear bucky699,
The mod does not add support for extra resolutions. You can TRY forcing the 1920x1080 resolution though - I've never tested it myself, so nobody knows what will happen. It might work - or it might not.

Go to start, run. Type regedit, press enter.
Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Digital Reality/TheSolonHeritage
On the right side change the ResolutionX and ResolutionY entries to your liking.
And tell us if it worked or not :)

Well, as far as I know there is no specific website that has TSH Skirmish maps for download. Your best bet is the Addons section here; of course if you find a website we are not aware of, please do share the link!

Hi Zsolt!
This is probably because of the sound system error common on current systems. Please try installing the Sound System Error Fix you can find in the downloads section, and tell us if that works.

Thanks!

ok it was cus i was at lvl 1 in the tech, apparently you need to start a game at lvl 2 tech to get the colony ships.

You can colonize planets even on level 1, but the colony ship is not automatically available. You need the following:
1. Colonization Tech
- Basic Biotech
- Basic Colonization
2. Ship Hull
- Colonization Ship under Ship Tech & Hulls

Make sure you have a planet you can colonize. You might also need additional colonization tech to start colonizing.
