I'm a bit bummed out, I love your mod but it has been seemingly at random crashing to desktop, not sure if there's any correlation to it, but I managed to play a map on competitive, and then a random map and the competitive map didn't crash, whereas the random one non-competitive did, Gonna try out a bunch of different stuff to see if I can figure out what it is that's causing the crash...

Sorry about that ... i work hard to give you guys bug free gaming.
Fortunately, after extensive digging around and testing I have found the problem.

The problem is with the Pirate Raiders (Pirates that come with the base game). If you play with the Pirates off then you should have no problems (apart from the 2GB RAM limit of Rebellion ... for which there is Large Address Aware (LAA) 4 GB patch). I am pretty sure the actual fix is simple ... one of the frigates entity names need to be changed.

No worries man, I'm incredibly appreciative of your hard work tho, the mod is excellent every other way, I'm also trying to change some other elements to check if it might of crashed due to something else, like I also play with Cheat engine table on, so I'm testing if that might of influenced something...

I am glad you like the mod.

"Cheat engine table" ... never heard of it.

I have been testing on random vast maps with all players present ... at least twice.

I've been crashing to desktop too. It usually happens within the first 30 minutes of a game weather or not I have pirates enabled.
I've been playing the 10 player map Rise of Empires without pirates enabled. I figured outlaws and enemy AI would be enough to worry about.

Turn down the graphics effects settings

My graphics card should eat this game up. I have a 3 gig Nvidia 970M.

That's nice ... but the problem is not with any modern PC hardware. The problem is that Sins is a 32 bit program and can only access 2GB of RAM. The biggest share of the memory usage is textures for the models, by turning down the graphics effects use reduce the overall RAM footprint of the game.
There is also a 4 GB patch that comes with the mod (see zip file) that uses Large Address Aware (LAA) ... not guaranteed to always work (without causing its own instabilities) ... as the developers would recommend its usage. However lots of people use it especially for large mods
