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 Thrawn's Revenge II: Ascendancy with 6 comments by .Corey. on Feb 21st, 2015

Where 0.9 was to test base functionality, the primary goals with 0.95 are to begin balancing and finalizing new systems, as well as polishing existing factions. This post doesn't include every single change, but should give an idea of some of the more impactful ones and general areas we're focusing on. Before we get started, after some significant downtime, our site and forums are back up. So, if you want to post feedback, suggestions or discuss strategy, you can click here

...Artificial Intelligence...

While the AI in Sins is hardcoded and therefore is the same in every mod, there's a few areas where it can be tweaked, and where it didn't interact well with the mod in 0.9. There are two prominent areas where we have made fixes or tweaks: first, we've fixed an issue where Escape Pods made the NR AI stop building dropships and therefore not expand. Also, we've increased the rate at which the AI builds capital ships, although this has involved increasing the rate at which capital ships reach higher levels. We'll also be playing around with some ship roles to influence how the AI builds and uses ships.

Oceanic Planet

...Ship Balance & Polish...

As we said in the release post, the ship stats currently in 0.9 are almost direct ports of our ICW values, and costs were essentially determined very roughly while we tested capabilities of things. In 0.95, we're beginning to focus more directly on those values, and beginning to make the ships match the stated playstyle of the factions; namely the Remnant ships being cheaper and more numerous, while weaker individually, and the New Republic ships being more powerful individually. We're also working to finish up the abilities for existing ships, based on what the factions need. Mon Calamari ships in particular have been buffed significantly (along with the Nebula). The Praetor has had its firepower decreased a bit, shifted more towards its tank role, and also had its cost increased to match its capabilities. The Galaxy Gun has also been limited to one instance, as we discussed in the previous post.

...Units & Structures...

The third goal with 0.95 is to more or less finish the units and structures for the New Republic and Imperial Remnant. Unit-wise this mostly just means the Proficient cruiser for the New Republic (the Remnant is getting some changes in 1.0 or 1.1, for a reason we'll explain when it becomes relevant). Structure-wise, this means adding the economic and military starbases for the two factions, as well as the New Republic's XQ Resupply platform, and a new Durasteel refinery to replace the stock one.

Arid Oceanic

...User Interface...

We're doing a significant overhaul on the HUD as well. Pictures coming later.


As you can see from the pictures in this post, we've also finished the textures for the new planet types in 0.9. There will be some new planet types in future versions, but we're using 0.95 to just finish up the existing ones.]


...Wrap it Up...

We're not going to give a release date, so we'll just say that it'll be out when the above is finished. At this point, that mostly means the UI and the models/textures for the new structures.

Not sure where to put this request but is there anyway to double damage or half health or maybe even both of units/buildings? I just feel like the game is too slow once you hit battles.

You need to create a mod.

Post any questions you have in the Sins modding forum, modders don't look at these comments to much.

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
