The time of Diplomacy is over. The length of the war and differing opinions on what should be done to bring the war to an end has led to a splintering of the groups involved. The controlling powers-that-be have depleted arsenals and seemed to have exhausted all efforts of diplomacy. Trapped in a stalemate, sub-factions have rebelled and broken off the main alignments. Rebellion is upon us.

A full-fledged expansion to the original, Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion draws you even deeper into the galactic struggle for supremacy with appealing new factions, terrifyingly cool new ships of all sizes, enhanced lighting and particle effects for increased visual pleasure and all-new victory conditions.

...The Somewhat-Exorable March of Progress...

As I'm sure many of you have noticed, our Mod Database profile is currently claiming that the mod is going to release on December 31st. We've been attempting to put the finishing touches on the first version of the mod for the last few weeks, however work and other factors have been trying to mess us up as much as possible. The dates we've put on Mod DB (the 18th and the 31st) were determined based on the assumption that I would be working 3 days a week for the end of November and December, and that I'd be taking the 14th to the 27th off. What ended up happening was I worked 6 days a week, and didn't finish until the 22nd, which as you can imagine severely disrupted the modding time I had scheduled. Either way, we're almost ready to start putting it out for feedback and balancing; all that remains are abilities and a few scenarios, as well as some cleanup. This first version will not include the Empire of the Hand. As the faction where we have the most freedom to explore different options, we want to make sure we don't rush it, however we don't see the point in delaying letting everyone play with the two other factions that are done, or nearly done, and iterating on the feedback there while we finish the Empire of the Hand.

Don't worry, you'll be able to play with (or kill, whatever floats your boat) a bunch of Clawcraft soon enough, you'll just get to play with X-Wings and TIE Fighters even sooner. Along with other stuff...

Bombing Run

...Survivor's Quest...

We'd also like to use this opportunity to talk about another feature we're implementing to the game; Escape Pods. These are primarily related to the New Republic as the faction most concerned with saving as many of their own lives as possible although they do make some appearances in the other non-Saurian and non-bioship factions. Their key role is as part of a passive ability for all New Republic capital ships and cruisers. Upon the near-destruction of these ships, their surviving crew will escape in the aptly-named Escape Pods. These pods cannot hyperspace, can be destroyed, and are somewhat slow to manoeuvre. They have the ability to dock with allied ships in order to provide several bonuses, including a temporary damage bonus credits, restored health, and restored supply. Essentially, in order to maximize the cost efficiency as the New Republic's lategame ships, you'll need to recover as many pods as possible. As ever, the exact bonuses are subject to change as we go.

Does anyone know of a map that customizes the huge multi-system map so it starts everyone in their own star, or even 2-per star? I just tried to do this in Galaxy forge but i couldn't do anything because there was just massive lag moving things around. Thanks :)

The E4X mod has maps that are random maps where everyone starts in their own star. Check those out. I believe their called "Fiefdome" maps though don't quote me on the name.

I think the game just bugged out on me. Vanilla run after the latest update and dlc, capital victory. One of the enemies, a vasari loyalist, just won't die, granted I did an alliance backstab but still. Capital under my control, titan destroyed, no cap ships left.

Any ideas?

ed: Never mind, apparently just a delay.

Also FYI, Vasari Loyalists are immune to capital victory if they researched mobile ruleship.

For most places its digital only. And its a steamworks game so you should either buy it from Steam or the Stardock website.

I hear you, but the fact that Stardock of all companies, once steam's biggest competitor, is now selling all its games on Steam and many of them with Steamworks, shows you just how much steam has won. I only started using it again to get this game and even I have to admit its a lot better than it was. I wish it didn't have to be this way, but these days its either use steam or miss out of a good chunk of PC gaming.

Heres the problem with steam. the majority of the community are either

A: children who have no maturity skills

B: Bronys and Furrys which I both despise because they are pedophiles

C: ******** who love to use swastikas for trolling

D: Trolls

I love steam, and like everything else it has its downfalls, and every community has people like that. but you don't have to have anything to do with them to just buy and play a game you like
