The Maelstrom Mod introduces four new races to the Sins of a Solar Empire Universe. They are independent of the original races and have unique strengths and weaknesses. Maelstrom is available Rebellion, Diplomacy, Entrenchment and Original Sins.
Highlights Rebellion (Release 2) 04/09/2012 - added Norlamin race with Loyalist and Rebel Factions - reduced Dreadnought, firepower and shield/hull regeneration rates. Also reduced number of strike craft - reduced 'strength' Super-Dreadnought ability - reduced the rate Dreadnoughts are produced - compatible now with Rebellion 1.04 - taken out ability 'population kill' on planet ice, volcanic and desert storm, i.e no more 'planet attack' spurious messages
