I don't want to modify the base game or create issues with my stacking of SinsPlus or whatever else comes down the road. In reality Battleship capitals are not very strong. If you look at their base weapon damage they are very weak compared to the 50 supply of heavies. It's really about the abilities.

The latest version 1.011 was due to a desync issue in multi-player games. It doesn't really affect this mod unless you play multi-player.

I'd like to comment on cmadd20's review...

"It is a good mod that adds two great teams with an interesting desighn. The beast is a team that is completly different from enything seen in SINS before. While this mod adds teams that are mystifying and scary it is rather bland and does not drasticaly change the fealing or gameplay of the game."

First I appreciate the comments, it's good to get critical feedback like this. My original goal was to not modify the core game while introducing two new races balanced as much as possible with the existing 3. This of course means I did not change the gameplay much other than the few racial features that make the two races feel unique.

To the credit of this mod... all the models were custom created by myself and a few sins forum members who joined the cause several months back. Outside of some great ideas offered by the modders everything else was done by myself. I don't think the review offered above is negative at all, it just made me think of the years worth of effort I personally put into learning how to mod sins and come up with the ideas for this mod. It's been a lot of fun trying to make something other people want to play and I hope to continue to make improvements.

I'm also hoping to make the races in the Transhumans addon feel and operate differently from the existing races... Time will tell.

ZombiesRus5 Dec 20 2010, 9:10am replied:

Pacts work fine with my modifications. The main delimiter with pacts is if you are playing a unlocked free for all or with locked teams. unlocked free for alls take more time to develop the relationship requiring you to do missions and what not. Locked teams usually results in pacts quicker. In either case I find researching down the diplomacy tree seems to kickstart the AI (might just be a coincidence).

The sad fact is no modder can currently create new pacts and leave the current system of pacts in place. The game is hardcoded to support only 18 pacts period. You can modify the existing pact types and switch them around which is the approach I used.

ZombiesRus5 Dec 19 2010, 11:46am replied:

Yes, I had to remove two pacts from TEC, Advent and Vasari to make three new pacts for Nephilim and Plague. The Diplomacy expansion is NOT very moddable with the new pact system. I really hope Ironclad rectifies this with an update (chances aren't likely but they have been known to make changes for the modding community in the past, i.e. dynamic movement).

I'm not sure how I'll handle the situation with the Transhuman addon. A complete redesign of the pact system may be in order or just fall back to the current system or maybe offer both!

Ok, bailknights graphic mod and TSOP squadron audomation are not compatible with other mods that add new content due to the changes they made in those mods. I would need to build a bridge addon similar to the SinsPlus addon to incorporate those mods (I'll look into it).

Thanks! and your right there are roughly 12-15 less research items from the core races. The core research and technology is accounted for in the custom research trees while some of the more obscure research is not. Specifically the civilian trees are the lightest between the races. Any ideas for civilian research would be considered. For example, the core races each have a unique tactical structure/ability while my races do not. There are also some other obscure research items that could be considered.

I'm a little concerned you appear to only have taken cool pictures of 3d models and re-posted them here.

Have you actually verified their poly counts. Have you converted them to mesh format to make sure they are compatible with Sins?

A lot of Sol Command's later work is pretty poly heavy for Sins if supported at all. There's also a lot of manual fixing you'll need to do to make them Sins compatible. How much XSI experience do you have now?

It just seems jumping the gun a little bit to say your using a model but not doing any verification whether it will work or not.

This particular release has three mods essentially: Sins of the Fallen (original two races), Sins of the Fallen: Transhumans (Rogue race currently), and you can play them both together (system specs permitting).

The reason for the stacking is two fold. If I were to release this mod without stacking it would require 6 separate uploads all around the same size to accomplish the same thing. By supporting stacking I can make one download that allows all three versions to be played.

The core sins game operates in a similar fashion. If you look in the install directory there is an Entrenchment and Diplomacy directory structured. The Diplomacy directory only contains new or modified resources, which is the same thing my mod is mirroring.

I will continue to operate this way going forward unless or until I drop Entrenchment as a supported expansion (most likely when Rebellion comes out).

Hey mangosofdoom... Maybe you've found a silver bullet for research which I would love to know or you might have some issues with your plans for frigate, cruiser, capital specific upgrades.

Using research modifiers only there is very little that applies only to capital ships and all other modifiers are global to ships and structures like hull and shields, etc. There are ways to target weapon damage buffs based on weapon type, but of course if frigates, cruisers and caps share the same weapon type, you get the picture.

You can simulate some of the frigate/cruiser specific upgrades by using abilities, but then capital ships get the shaft due to their limited number of ability slots in my experience.

Also, having researchable abilities has never worked right for me when I tried it on capital ships. The engine still seems to want to treat researchable abilities as level up type abilities.

As a reference..., I have a about ten models between 2-3 MB and one model that is 5 MB that I haven't released yet. I may try optimizing the last one some more but it will work.

Is the 7000 polys in just triangles? or is it around 14000k triangles? I have several models around 3MB that are 10k triangles that work well. But most of the others are near the existing Sins thresholds (500-1.5k fighters, 1.5-3k frigates/cruisers, 4-8k capitals in triangles with a few exceptions).

Another thing to consider is the size of the texture. For frigates and cruisers I've gone with 1024x1024 to keep the memory usage down. I've increased it to 2048x1024 or 2048x2048 only when necessary. Learning to unwrap by hand will allow you to make more use of a smaller texture and get good details.

You might find other ways to save on memory like using a common trade and refinery ship for all races. Reusing some structures, etc.

Even with the changes Stardock/Ironclad is making it won't allow the game to go over 2GB so being memory conscious up front will save you some headaches down the road.

I'm trying her out as a massive starbase right now. She's got a really great top view in the game.

That was my understanding too, but I like the idea and if they want the flood in the sins it makes sense they have to make some creative decisions.

not at all :P It was more a comment about this ship being kinda scary looking compared to most ships in sins (first thought after I read your comment).

Well, I wasn't sure when I would buy Fallout: New Vegas. I guess the decision has been made.

At the moment yes. A lot of work went into creating the Diplomacy release for the Nephilim race. I plan on release an Entrenchment version, but a release date is still TBD.

Well... I've been working on the core of this mod for a while now and recently made quite a few advances with my own knowledge and acquiring a small team to help with providing some of the models.
