THis might be a stupid qeustion but, is it possible to make a galaxy map so that I can have only the new planets?

I can interpret your question in at least two ways...
1. With Galaxy Forge you can create your own maps and define what planets and star fill the map. Make sure to copy the file GalaxyScenarioDef.galaxyScenarioDef to your Galaxy Forge folder.
2. Ultimately you what a planets/star mod that can stack on your favorite mod/s. Unfortunately in this case you can't make a stackable mod, you would have to 'integrate' the mods. This is because the GalaxyScenarioDef.galaxyScenarioDef does not stack so a number of features from either one or the other mod (depending on the stacking order) would be 'written over'

As interesting as it is seeing new ships and other stuff, this mod is completely broken. Why? The new races are so overpowered, it's not even funny. Here's the scenario:

I went Advent. I have a Halycon Carrier and Progneiter, 20-30 Disciple Vessels and a Starbase and you're telling me, an Alliance fleet with merely just ONE capital ship and 10-ish frigates and 3 cruisers are able to TANK my starbase which has Lv2 weapons AND destroy both my capital ships. And all I broke was 5-7 frigates and one cruiser. Oh and my starbase blew up as well. Awesome.

In another scenario. I have a Halycon Carrier and about 15 Disciple Vessels along with 8 laser turrets and the Replicators sent only one capital ship and 7-ish frigates. Destroyed my entire fleet and I kept fielding Disciples (two frigate factories) and I did not even dent the enemy capital ship.

I have never seen my ships' hull drain so fast. "Oh, you have 2.5k HP? I'll cut that in half in 5 seconds." <-- What?

Hi legojoe1,
I can see that you are passionate about Sins and that's great to see!

Just to fill you in on the Maelstrom mod, so its current state makes sense,
1. I'm the only developer
2. The release timeline was as follows
R1 - basic mod
R2 - optimization of memory footprint and gameplay
R3 - updated orbitial structure
R4 - new planets, moon, etc, also particle effects
R5 - updated fleets
3. I've left balancing for next to last (R6) for a number of reasons. I don't consider the new races balanced against the original.

Also just be aware that a frigate or cruiser from a new race has typically twice the Hull, Shield and Firepower as one from the original races. Also its twice as expensive to build, takes twice the time to build and has twice the fleet logistics slots. It was implemented this way to help with game slowdown in large maps and lots of players, late in the game.

Try not to get to wound up. My guess is that they've been Researching Military to gain levels much higher than yours. I sometimes build my research in a balanced manner, other times I use all my resources to concentrate on either economic developement, or go apeshit in military spending.
My advice-Be pro-active and get out there and whoop some *** soldier!

Hi piemanlives,

Unfortunately my ADSL connection comes on line next Monday (its taking a bit longer as I've moved into a new house).

I was going to ask with R4 for original Sins ... do you get any mini-dumps on long games, large maps and lots of players?
