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.

has anyone ever wondered why stardock and iron clad allowed the community to mod there games, i mean on the options, the mod button is clearly visible and not hidden, to me it is as if the creators almost said, here is a great game, so awesome in fact we want you to go away and make it better (if at all possible)

and of course the community replied 'challenge excepted' and look where we are now, sins of the prophets, dawn of the reapers and so many awesome mods out there its unbelievable.

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.

Okay, I have a tricky question. I want to buy Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion, but I cannot digitally download it (due to a combination of an extremely slow internet connection speed and a limited bandwidth). On the game's official website, it mentions a Collector's Edition, however the collector's edition does not come with a CD key. If I were to purchase both the game on Steam and the Collector's Edition, but not download the Steam game, would the Steam game provide me with a CD key so that I can install using the discs of the Collector's Edition?

steam will provide you with a key which as far as i know you only get to see while your installing >_<

the collectors edition should come with a cd key O_O
