Sins of a Solar Empire is a real-time space strategy and the first chapter in an epic science fiction saga. The independent Trader Worlds must unite and form the Trader Emergency Coalition to defend themselves against the return of their exiled brethren, "The Advent" and the arrival of the desperate remnants of the ancient Vasari Empire.

Explore and conquer nearby planets and distant solar systems by applying brute force, cunning strategy, elegant diplomacy, economic mastery, and researched technology. The gameplay features seamless transition between epic strategy and tactical combat modes.

About Sins of a Generation with 8 comments by Faced on Aug 17th, 2013

Hey guys, Faced here.

So, as you might have figured by the title. The mod Sins of a Generation is in need of people to help us in it's development.
Since we have lost Bastion, and Aeneas. We only have a Modeler, Concept artist and our Dev Lead/Galaxy Forger.

It would be highly appreciated if you, the fanbase could help us out. If you have any skills that we might have a use for, please, send us a pm. Or if you do not possess such skills, please, spread the word around, ask friends, randoms. We would just like to see our mod continue.

If not, to see the mod work, it will take us very, very long for us to complete everything.

So i repeat again, Please, if you have the time, skill and will, please join us in our conquest to create one of the best mods for Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion.

From a post by Island Dog on the Sins forum:

Stardock announced today that its PC strategy titles are hitting Steam starting with the real-time strategy hit Sins of a Solar Empire: Trinity ($19.95, The Sins of a Solar Empire series has sold more than 2 million copies worldwide and swept many of the top gaming media awards, including IGN’s overall PC Game of the Year award. Steam and Gamestop PC Downloads are featuring Sins of a Solar Empire: Trinity at a 25 percent off discount this week.

“With the sale of our former PC digital download technology to GameStop earlier this year, we no longer have any conflicts of interest in offering our titles to other digital distribution channels,” said Brad Wardell, CEO of Stardock. “We are starting with Sins of a Solar Empire: Trinity with other titles being made available over the coming weeks.”

More distribution platform announcements are planned for Stardock titles in the coming weeks in order to give fans the opportunity to play on the platform of their choice.

I'd really like to see a current mod for the Babylon 5 world. There are so many cool races and ships in that series. It would be such fun to play as Shadows or Vorlon.

Here is a URL with some ship data:

If you're running Windows 7:

Find the mods path. Should be something like:

C:\Users\TE5LA\AppData\Local\Ironclad Games\Sins of a Solar Empire

"TE5LA" will obviously be replaced with your Win7 username.

See the mod folders like "Mods-Diplomacy v1.32". Open that for Diplomacy mods. Create a folder by the mod's name the way you want it to appear in the game. Copy all that mod's files there.

In the game, go to Options and select Mods. "Enable" the mod you want to use.

One of my favourite games I have ever played. Filled to the brim with the most brilliant of details. Massive, ever expanding maps that may take days to finally finish. On top of that: a giant repository of mods, with plenty more being made. And Ironclad, at the time of this review, has finished Entrenchment and Diplomacy and is almost finished with their newest full expansion: Sins - Rebellion. So, if you are thinking of picking this up but not sure, DO IT! This game is amazing, and is worth the…
