Quick problem. I merged the Maelstrom mod with my Sins directory folder (C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Sins of a Solar Empire Rebellion) and then I went to uninstall the mod by copying over the directory with the original data but whenever I launch the game the loading image that normally says 'Rebellion' or whatever and has the fist picture is replaced with the loading image of Maelstrom. I tried deleting the game and uninstalling it from Steam and then reinstalling it but it is still there. Please help.

In your Sins directory folder,

delete LoadingSplash.dds from the textures folder,
keep LoadingSplash.tga (which is the original).

I assume the uninstall process is keeping certain files and does not delete everything.
Also the .dds texture file has priority over the .tga

Looks good, but please get someone to proofread any text within the mod and especially in the summary graphic; there's plenty of errors in there that could have been prevented if the person writing it had read it out to themselves afterwards.

Cheers ...
I am aware there are a few grammatical and spelling errors, scattered throughout thousands of lines of descriptions,
I typically rely on players for specific/major feedback as I am the only developer for this mod.

It's been far too long since I last played this, going to fix that... now.

Hi Piemanlives,
Hope you are well!
As a break ... I have been playing 'Civilization: Beyond Earth' and 'GCIII'.
But still enjoying SoaSE every once in a while.

Doing alright, I myself have been getting back to playing SoaSE in the past few weeks, playing a lot of Civ 5 and F:NV as well.

It's either that or other things... like Life is Strange, or Tomb Raider. For the most part if I'm not trying to conquer the world I'm playing things I need to actually finish in my steam library so I can uninstall them.

Each time I have released an update to Rebellion I have asked ModDB to move my mod to the Rebellion section (i.e 8 times). Do you think that they were willing to do it? LOL

The problem is that my mod is available (and up to date) for all versions of Sins (Original, Entrenchment, Diplomacy and Rebellion). In particular, they placed my mod on Desura (Diplomacy) and I have been told it takes too much work to move it to Rebellion (they would have to move both the ModDB and Desura pages to Rebellion). To easy their conscious (when I told them of the negative impact of leaving it in Diplomacy) they said over time that its popularity would improve ... LOL

My bottom line is that I have accomplished what I have set out to achieve with this mod ... barring one more release ... and I have moved on
