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.

1.1 CHANGES:

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

~Reduced the pirate strength by about 50%.

1.0 CHANGES:

~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.

Enjoy.

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.

Playing my first round, I've noticed a few things(halfway through only tho) pirates are goddamn strong, way stronger than I had imagined,
playing as TecRebels, they took out 8 of my lvl 4 capitals, while I had 2 starbases, 4 repair platforms(Altho they seem to be doing nothing, since they aren't using their abilities AT ALL on my ships(nor really using them anyway even on structures) and some turrets, altho mostly out of range, which led to a few deaths, but it was certainly new and really making me fear them.

However, fighting AI planets is pretty hard now, with their starbases covering the whole grav well, altho my 50 ogrov's are doing their job, I lose about half of them when it dies, but I am still winning so it aint a real problem :) Will reply with more things I like/dislike when I find them.

But besides those points which I have mixed feelings about, I freaking love it ^.^

Well if you can change the way autocast works, and make my repair platforms actually use their ability, I'd love you xD

the auto cast is working, if u hover over a unit that is damage u will see the hull repaired a second, it can only be affected by one repair platform at a time and since it fires the gravity well one will repair everything at once, so u only need 2-3 repair platforms at a time

Yeah I know that, but for some reason the repair platforms won't use their ability, I usually got 3/4 in a grav well(then 27 gauss 2 starbases) and none of them ever gets repped by the repair platforms, the starbase repair function works perfectly tho, altho it is rather weak.

Could you maybe buff occupied planets? They are so easy to take over :/ It only takes like 4 capitals and a titan and a few support ships...I'd like it to be a challange to take like the pirate base now(Scouting it now and then to see if it got anymore troops than the last time I scouted it while I slowly get lvl 10 caps :P

Btw, I made a map in GF, gave the normal AI and me each 500k credits, 250k metal/crystal, and god, even the normal AI is putting on a challenge against my planets that got full defenses/2 starbases xD

Enjoying most of what i'm seeing so far. I like particularly the changes to the starbase.

Not sure i like how fast captial ships level or not.

I will say i'd strongly reconsider some of the pirate changes. Any semblance of realism is just gone when they start sending fleet after fleet of capital ships. The odd Capital ship mixed in with a large number of smaller ships... THAT is a pirate fleet. Honestly dislike that mechanic so much i'm not sure i'd consider using the mod. Which is a shame because i like a lot of the other aspects.

lol, well the idea with the pirates was to make them super powerful to make up for the lack of the ai, its supposed to give u a challenge and my friends and I have been beating the snot out of them, i can even do it on solo, but i will consider changing the fleets around.

Hey there, this mod sounded like a great idea since I only play skirmishes with the AI. The only problem is that I put the mod in the correct folder and enabled it in-game, but when I start a game up nothing has changed. Can still build superweapons, hanger defenses, etc. Is it because I'm using a map I made in galaxy forge or is it something else I'm missing? Thanks!

Make sure u have it in the 1.02 mod folder, every thing should work fine from there. You can create your own maps and it will work with it.
