A little about the mod:

KOG's Law, originally Overthrow's Law was created during the first Sins of a Solar Empire game.
The mod was updated for Entrenchment and renamed Drison's Law after much work and tweaking, and again was updated for Rebellion and renamed KOG's Law, again with a lot of work put into it since early beta release to insure that it is as balanced as can be.

This mod has been around since the beginning of the game. Drison and myself wanted to make some changes to reduce lag in the original game and make it more exciting. Lag is no longer an issue with the updates and changes the game creators have made, but we have still left the changes in as it made the game a little more fun. Here is a list of changes.


~Reduced the time of Armistice 75 seconds to 30 seconds.

~Reduced the pirate strength by about 50%.


~Hangar Defense have been removed as well as light carriers (This was originally done to cut down on lag but we found later that it made carriers worth something.)

~Pirates have been buffed quite a bit (I can tell you that larger waves of pirates will hurt.. even early waves.)

~Planets have been changed a little and asteroids received a buff of how many mineral asteroids they can have.

~TEC mines were removed. Advent still retain them but they may only be spawned off of carriers and stations (The AI still does not use them, but it makes it fun for the player. Vasari retain their mines for balancing purposes.)

~Super Weapons have been removed. (Mostly due to AI rushing them.)

~The amount of capitals you can build has been increased to a total of 24 at the final upgrade. Up from 16 in the original version of Rebellion

~TEC rebels can no longer make an alliance with pirates but can now build two stations. (With the changes to the pirates it made the TEC Rebels seem a little too overpowered)

~Stations now have 10 upgrade points. They can also shoot the entire gravity well, repair platforms and inhibitors can now also reach the entire gravity well. (This will NOT reach the entire gravity well on suns.. depending on the size of the sun, but will work on 99% of the planet gravity wells.)

~Capitals and titan experience per level has been reduced.

Before you start complaining about balance or other things, please try the mod, this is designed for friends to play against the AI or just face wave after wave of pirate ships.


Thanks goes to Kog, Drison, Divercity and Cataire.
Also, I would like to thank Cillian for the banner that he made for the mod
Thanks for your help guys.

Install in the mod folder in Documents\My Games\Ironclad Games\Sins of a Solar Empire Rebellion\Mods-Rebellion vx.xx
The maps go in the galaxy forge folder, these will be released at a later time.

The Mod can be used with pretty much any version of SotSE:R, if you find a version that it is not working on, please send either Overthrow or Drison a mail.

Please remember to vote also :)

So i have rebuilt the mod from the ground up using the latest reference files for 1.031. I found some of the files were a bit dated. I'm going to test out the mod for a couple more days and then release 2 versions. 1 with the current pirate level and 1 with nerfed pirates for the single players.

I have been playing the versarie exclusively the last 2 weeks and have not encountered this bug. I have notice the versarie ships don't always auto cast the strip planet ability but i'm not sure if that's a mod issue or a game issue. If you can describe more in detail of the conditions when it happens so i can try and recreate it. Thanks.

Hi, I'm Drison and i helped co designed the mod with overthrow. This mod was built around our first mod which was Drison's Law in the original sins. In the original game me and overthrow grew very frustrated with the lack of caps the AI would build as we felt the caps is what made the game cool not subcaps. So we modified the pirates to achieve the capital fights we were seeking and got some success out of it but still not quite what we wanted.

By the time diplomacy came out we had stopped playing the game. Once news of rebellion came out it sparked our interest into the game again. Overthrow got into the beta and took over the mod and made it into what it is today. I got the game at launch and little did I know how much diplomacy changed the behavior of pirates. So upon playing my old new mod and seeing the pirates come at me was awesome. However once the AI starts feeding the pirates missions plus the normal pirate wave it does get very over whelming the longer the game goes. However playing with overthrow trying to take out the AI and the pirates at the same time was some of the most fun i have ever had and most challenging gameplay i had as a human vs AI coop game.

So with that said i believe playing with other people to fight the pirates, the pirates are fine. However playing as single player against the pirates i can agree the pirates are to much imo. So im going to talk to overthrow about either keeping 1 mod and nerfing the pirates or making a 2nd version of our mod with scaled back pirates that make it more single player friendly. That way if you play with friends you can use our current mod and have tons of fun or load our scaled back version.

Thanks for the reply ^.^

I don't have any friends sadly with who I can play the mod(Or have any friends anyway;p), but I bet the mod gets way more fun when playing with people who will actually help when you get attacked xD

I will keep tracking the comments/mod in the mean time and play the mod some more ;)
