Getting a minidump, just as the map finishes loading.

Using lastest version, all updated, no other mods running. Could this be because I have graphics too high, what do i need them to be set at it?
Or could it be something else.

Glad you sorted it ... as I've said before the Sins development team has recently been releasing patches 'left right and center'
PS: glad you are enjoying the new models!

Nice, I have it working without too many problems...altough I did play a 3-hour game and when I quit to the menu, it crashed.
Is it me, or can the Travelon? heavy cruiser use its missile barrage ability without it being researched?
Also, when viewed from behind, one of the utility cruisers has a stretched or skewed polygon.-its tradealliance, and I think its name starts with U or something.
I only mention it because all your other smorgasborg'd models look quite nice.

I have noted that on occasions Sins crashes almost randomly on mod startup or game startup. It is weird but fortunately it is rare on my machine. Try the following ...
1. Activate the mod.
2. Shut Sins down
3. Restart Sins (Maelstrom autoactivate at this point)

Hi WS-GS8,
Thanks for the feedback.
I'll look at the TA's Travelon and utility cruisers for the things you noted.

I haven't personally made any custom maps but I believe that you have to copy the galaxydefinition file (from the maelstrom gameinfo folder) into the gaxlaxyforge folder to create the maps.

More specifically, replace the GalaxyScenarioDef in GalaxyForge with the one from Maelstrom ... then make your map anew with Galaxy Forge.

no it will stay at windows or make a black screen. then i will have to log out or shut my pc down. you could make a auto installer? that would help a lot?

"no it will stay at windows or make a black screen" ...
It sound like you have copied the wrong version of the Maelstrom mod into your diplomacy mod directory. Alternatively have you got Sins Diplomacy patched to 1.34?

"you could make a auto installer" ...
I had a look at writing an auto installer, its not as simple as it appears. Apart from other issues it would have to be OS dependent (XP, Vista, Win7, Linux, etc) and therefore fairly sophisticated (i.e windows application). Currently to install a mod all you need to know is the mod directory and how to copy and patch from your unzipped directory.

"I have problem with textures , the ships are not completely finish" ...
the ships are not being render correctly on your system. This is most likely due to your graphics card. Make sure that you have the latest video driver or reduce the graphics effects setting of Sins.

With the new patches I have found a bug with the abilities on the Magnetar and Quasar Stars. If they are loaded into a game they will crash the game.
There are 11 stars in total so the more stars in the map the more likely there will be a mini-dump. This can occur also when the games/mod starts. So it is random.
You can take out the two stars by changing the GalaxyScenarioDef.galaxyScenarioDef file (decrementing lines 6 & 21, and at the same time deleting lines 13,17,27,31)
