Greetings Shipmasters and Admirals,

Today we are releasing version 0.80 of Sins of the Prophets for public consumption!

First, we'd like to thank everyone for providing feedback and bug reports about issues you ran into while playing 0.75.1. We read every report we received, and we're eternally grateful for having such a passionate, and helpful fanbase. A fan project like ours couldn't ask for anything better!

0.80 is a pretty massive upgrade to the mod. It includes new ships, structures, and game mechanics - such as to include a tiered defense system for the Covenant, that allows them to spawn in defensive fleets localized to gravity wells.

- Continued the process of revamping our UI system, and improved some of the spacing on our HUD.

- Additional VO work has been completed.

- Weapon effects, and ship explosions for both factions have been tweaked, and improved.

- We're in the process of revamping visible buff effects, and some of those changes have also made it in time to be included in this release.

We'll go into more detail below, and let you see what we're talking about, but first, we'd like to remind everyone to please read the installation instructions provided with the download before seeking tech support. During the initial two weeks after a release we get swamped by requests for help, and a majority of the issues spawn from not reading the installation instructions, and following the links provided. Installation Instructions.txt is love, Installation Instructions.txt is life.

New Ships



New ships in the mod include the Epoch-class Heavy Carrier, ADP-class Escort, and Lich. The Epoch and ADP are ships brought to the Halo universe via the new tabletop fleet strategy game Halo: Fleet Battles, while the Lich was introduced in Halo 4.

Model Updates


We've also introduced model updates for the RCS-class Armored Cruiser, Valiant-class Super-Heavy Cruiser, and the DOS-class Supercruiser.

Covenant Defense

This update has also introduced our Covenant Defense Fleet mechanic into the mod. To improve Covenant defensive abilities, while keeping the faction unique, the Covenant will have orbital structures called Patrol Stations. Upon the arrival of an enemy fleet the station will act as a beacon, pulling in groups of ships nearby to defend the planet. As you research more, and build more stations, the fleets get larger, and more powerful.

Effects Update



Cole Protocol, and Sgt. Toothpaste, have been hard at work revamping our particle effects for the mod, and we think you'll be mighty pleased with the fruits of their labor. From explosions to fleet buffs, we've taken care in attempting to improve the visual fidelity of the mod, to keep you focused on the battle at hand.

Scale Chart


Thanks to the hard work of ElijahBI, and WyvernZu, we've also created the most beautiful fleet scale chart for both factions we've ever had. Clicking the image above will take you to Elijah's deviantArt page, where you can download the file in all of it's radiant beauty. We've also included the chart as promotional material inside the download for 0.80

Download

The mod can be downloaded from the link below. Please spread the word about this release, and help us reach out to those in the Halo community who might want to play an experience like this, but don't yet know about the work we're doing!

Hotfix

SotP 0.80.1, a hotfix for 0.80, is live.
Fixes include:

  • player crash in Flood mode resolved

You can't install fonts that are in a zip file. Extract the folder first. Then install them.

I downloaded the mod the day after it came out and replaced the old version files with the new ones. I played for a few hours with only two noticeable bugs: The UNSC and Covy AI swap and the slipspace portal missing 1/4 of the black circle before jumping. I closed the game as usual and stopped running steam. I didn't play during the week and came back today(4/23/16) to play a small 1 v. 1 before the season 6 GoT premiere and I get the "Preparing to launch Sins of a solar...ect.ect." for a good 10-15 minutes. I go back into my program files and make sure I didn't have any files out of place. I did and promptly fixed the issue and put the files in their respective places. Launch up steam and "Preparing to launch etc...." I wait for another 10-15 minutes. Nothing. So what I want to know is should I trash all of my current mod files and just re-download the new update? Is this an error on my part or just an unknown bug?

Ok, so ive downloaded it three times now, twice regularly and once using the mirror. LAA "general error message" still popping up. something is corrupt with your download as many people are having the ssue and your fix doesn't work. if it has been downloaded three times (on two separate computers I may add. on my other one its been downloaded twice.) using both methods of how to fix the issue and it still is crashing, well that mean you have a bug.

Changed this reply--- I cant because I would have to pay for a membership because the file is too big and I don't want to do that. (I'm a cheap bastard, I'm sorry)

Nexus are scumbags that make you think you need the paid membership to download large files thanks to the site design, you do not.

You can get a free account and have unlimited access to download, the paid membership is just for 'premium' servers.
