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.

About Star Trek: Armada 3 with 13 comments by Gul-Dukat(tech) on Nov 20th, 2014

Hello ladies and gentlemen! We're back with another Dev Diary Supplemental showing you what we've been up to recently. In the countdown to release we've been working at a feverish pace to get the game as polished as we possibly can. So, what have we been doing lately?

We've been working hard on our iconography, trying to make sure every button you press in game is unique and indicative of the style we have gone for. This is a huge undertaking and I can't begin to tell you how tedious coding them all in is! Here's a screenshot of some of our iconography in its file.

Massive right? And this isn't the only one! We have two of these suckers full of unique icons for the CTA expansion. We're also working on removing the stock buttons from out HUD. almost finished with that but take a look at the video below to get a feel for it and some of the other changes.

New Ships and neutral defenders.
As you saw in the video we've been introducing new vessels as neutral entities, exciting new planets to seek out and generally fleshing out the universe into something truly Trek! Our newest neutrals include the Son'a Battleship and the Miradorn Raider (both shown in the video).

New Vessels for players and updated models for existing ones.
Lots of updates to our vessels in the recent past. From the Defiant class all the way through our range to the Sovereign you should see better, more detailed models ans we're sure you'll love them!

Even more interestingly, meet the Polaris Class Dreadnought. With the inclusion of the new Klingon Dreadnought we wanted to give the Federation something with a little more teeth.The Polaris, a fan design by our own Michael Wiley was the answer. The Polaris will serve as a much more offensive option for the federation, but won't have the survivability or the area control options of the Excalibur.

That's it for today folks, but expect regular updates and videos on our changes in the lead up to release. For now, this is Gul Dukat, to the loyal citizens of Cardassia, out.

Today I played a ~4H Sins Forgotten Worlds game, was awsome! Game started with 6 players and ended when 3 of us went up against 2 veterans that thought they could pick us one by one. The was one massive and EPIC fleet battle with 3 vs 2 which we won ;), unfortunatly I didn't take a pic of the event :/

Can recomend SIns of an Solar Empire series to anyone interested in strategy games ;) . Well, now i'll jump into bed, night

what's this new DLC and what is the patch then? is the Patch the DLC?

Temeter Jun 12 2013, 8:36am replied:

No, the Forbidden Worlds DLC costs 5$ or 4€. It also seems rather limited, not a small game changer like entrenchement and diplomacy. Just a few new planets and the choice between a social or industrial upgrade on planets.
That's only my first impression, though.

I certainly agree with you, it sure is awesome!

But it's no puzzle... when a developer allows their game to be modded, not only are they upping the replay value, community mods can also increase sales for them. Look at ARMA 2's sales after the DayZ mod came out, sales for it skyrocketed and it was Steam's #1 top purchased game for quite a while (that's for a 3+ year old game too), and it's still within their top seller list.

More and more developers are becoming "Mod Friendly" now. And for our benefit, let's hope it continues.

Bethesda games in general really, they always have a large flock of modders.
