Sins of a Solar Empire is often described as a 4XRTS game, or a game that tried to merge the action and tactics packed gameplay of a Real time strategy game with the deep, complex, empire wide strategy of a 4X turn based game. It's up to debate whether Sins succeeded in this goal, but I think all can agree that of the 4Xs of "explore, expand, exploit, and exterminate", Sins is much more focused on the exterminate than on the others. This mod seeks to give more depth to the other 3Xs of the game by adding additional game elements or refining the existing ones to reward players who give more strategic thought to the non-combat side of the game. Combat will still be the center point of the game, but players will find that the non-combat options available will be much more rewarding. Spying, exploring, sabotage, diplomacy, culture, and economic development have all been added or changed in innovative new ways. Regardless of what you think Sins is, this is the 4XRTS it should have been.

For a second I thought this was about Rebellion 1.82 and was really confused.
I'm happy now though because I get to destroy my enemies with double the ships!
Although you know what they say:
Twice the pride, double the fall.

Heyas! Thanks for all you've done to create a great mod, I can't wait to play it!
Question: Is the "Apply any minimods you like in the same relative order as the screenshot above" in your description text refering to the preview *.jpg?

Thanks!

Enabling all the E4X Random Encounters seems to revert the pirates back to E4X instead of Mandalores. I tried on several different maps and made sure the order was as the picture. I'm assuming this is not intentional.

I wasn't able to duplicate this. Are you sure if you are using the new minimods from this download, not the old one? What map did you notice this on? What is your mod order?

Soon as I read your reply, I realized what the problem was. When I downloaded 1.82, I quickly skimmed the files to see if anything changed other than the Starbase minimod. Problem was I was using the 1.811 version of Random Encounters. I need to pay more attention. :)

Thank you for all the hard work. I've been following this and E4X for a long time. I have great respect for the detail and attention you have payed to Sins all these years.

Always a good idea to scrap the old minimods when new ones come out. :-)

Thank you for the kind words!

Is there a reason for the convert exe file in the starbase mod?

No. That would probably be me forgetting to delete it before packaging the download pack.
