Blog RSS Feed Report abuse Latest News: Sins of the Prophets Rebellion Alpha v.0.56.1 Released

46 comments by Unikraken on Jul 21st, 2014

Greetings,

As of this writing, version 0.56 of our Halo total conversion for Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion v 1.82 is being packed up and readied for public consumption. I will be uploading the mod at midnight local time, so expect to see it ready for download some time Monday morning (link will be at the bottom of this post when available).

In this update you'll find a number of updates and changes. I'll list some of the more significant ones below:

  • Gameplay balance has been tweaked several times over the last 7 months, so it's too numerous to list here. You'll have to play to find out.

 

Major Covenant Changes

  • There is now a placeholder model for the SDV corvette on loan from our EaW sister-mod Covenant at War.
  • The DDS-class Carrier has been given a very sexy new model and texture thanks to our asset-sharing partnership with our Homeworld 2 sister-mod Homefront.
  • Type 27 Space Banshees have been added as the Covenant fighter. Model and texture thanks to our asset-sharing partnership with our Homeworld 2 sister-mod Homefront.
  • Several texture and tangent map enhancements have been made to Covenant models to remove the seam visible in the last release.
  • The Assault Carrier is now immune to disabling effects and flood infection.
  • The Pickett has become the anti-fighter ship featuring pretty damaging pulse lasers to help repel UNSC and Flood alike.

 

Major UNSC Changes

  • Mako is out, Stalwart is in, including fancy new model and texture from our UNSC lead artist Annihilater102.
  • Massive changes to the UNSC starbase, including a new modular upgrade system and powerful weapons. She'll make you think twice about assaulting her if you pay the piper his due. AAA helix autocannons, Archer missiles, and Onager-style mini-MACs litter the station as well as research for a Shiva nuclear warhead.
  • Tangent maps for UNSC ships are slowly being updated to improve lighting and visual fidelity and you'll see some of those updates in this release, but more are to come.
  • Fractions.

 

Major Flood Changes

  • Flood no longer accept bidding for who they are going to attack. Their behavior is now independant of player actions.
  • Pure form Flood Carriers are now in and ready to scare the shit out of you.

 

Other Changes

  • Very fancy new skyboxes thanks to Max from the STA3 team and Egosoft.
  • Approximately 30 new planets not including Forerunner locations.
  • Several planets with custom textures from the lore available for custom map building; including Earth, Reach, and Sanghelios.
  • Updated soundtrack thanks to our composer Waseem Faraz Butt.
  • Updated voiceovers thanks to our audio director I_Am_Sancho.
  • We liked our main menu so much we put a ring on it.
  • Updated win/lose screans for both factions from custom art thanks to Kawassass00.

UPDATE: HOTFIX 0.56.1 is awaiting authorization

CuriousPerson wrote:Why 0.56.1 when the previous version was 0.56.41820?

While the change isn't large enough to warrant 0.57, the major reason "41820 " is being scrapped is because the part of the system related to the version number of Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion and we've been told by the game's dev team 1.82 is the final update for the Rebellion, so we no longer need to keep track of that information for the download.

So, what has changed in the first hotfix?

  1. A corrupted map file was fixed. (Everything was squished on top of one another.)
  2. We've removed invisibility during slipspace. It was too confusing for users and there are some bugs with the mechanic that just aren't worth fixing.
  3. Weapon range on the UNSC starbase was corrected. It will now engage targets at the longest weapon range it has rather than just at the range of the autocannons.

The link to download the hotfixed version is the same, but if you've previously downloaded the mod you WILL need to redownload it. If you've having issues with ModDB please look at the mirrors listed below the download button in this post or those listed in the expanded description box on the download page itself.

Someone has probably asked this, but is there any plans to add other factions like the human rebels, or any covenant that oppose the prophets teaching?

human faction split would have been ONI and the MIC (military industrial complex), though that is, as far as i know, no longer going to happen. the covenant at this time is on the backburner so how the entire faction works atm is a WIP.

Pity. But why? Good ship, though dies quickly, but at the initial stage of game, he will be useful.

Actually, the Athens is literally the same thing the Eion used to be. You have the Athens as early as you would've had the Eion.

something to do with the combat mechanics. i find fighters to be almost useless unless im fighting the flood. the bombers on the other hand i use only against smac platforms. so i dont lose ships.
