Distant Stars is a collection of changes that Skyline_HUN made to the game to become more enjoyable even on huge maps. He found the research tree too short for a 4x game. So the first thing the MOD does is greatly increase the research levels. Now most of the weapons, shield, armor and HP research have 6-10 levels per-technology each. Now, a technological advantage really becomes major factor in the game. Also he tried to increase the differences between the three races by research. The MOD also increases the differences between the three races by increasing the advantage the research grants. This actually means, the Trader Emergency Coalition (TEC) have more levels for trade and defense, Advent have more research available in beam weapon technology and fighters/bombers, Vasari can now increase their phase missiles to really pass through shields and have more weaponry research. Some default researches have been tweaked to help improve the the differences between the three races.

Synopsis of Fallen Distant Stars Addon (D 1.2) Alpha 0.2.1

The Fallen Distant Stars addon allows Sins of the Fallen to work with the Distant Stars mod as found here (Sins of a Solar Empire Forum) and here (moddb).

  • Fixes max capital supply to balance with Distant Stars for Nephilim and Plague
  • Fixes fleet supply to balance with Distant Stars for Nephilim and Plague

Distant Stars is a huge mod for Sins of a Solar Empire, made to increase the research levels greatly often doubling what was originally available. Also added are huge graphical improvements that were created by other members of the community and included in our mod, we have added many new planet types and also planet variations in size including varied population and statistics. On top of all this we have also increased the difficulty of the pirates making them much stronger than they were originally, not only is their base now protected by a Starbase and the planet undestroyable until you have defeated their starbase but they have also commandeered capital ships from each of the existing races.

The MOD helps to emphasise the differences between the three existing races due to it's huge research trees and also helps extend the length of games if you prefer longer games, however if you prefer shorter games the "Fast" gameplay speed has been speeded to over twice that of the original so if you prefer faster games, don't worry we also cater for you too!
