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.

Looks like you changed the volcanic planet to a different tier.

Close enough. :p Those two techs are the normal Vasari Volcanic population increase techs. The Volcanic colonization tech has been removed. From now on the Vasari will no longer need research to colonize Volcanic planets.

Description

Summer is almost here and a new Sins patch is in the works, so that means its time to get modding again! Keen eyes might notice the new gold UI overlay on techs that unlock Hero Units, making it easier for new players (or veterans who've forgotten and don't have the ship slots to check on the ability) to the mod to recognize which techs unlock them.
