So with the rapid progress we have been making the last several weeks, I wanted to do an update to show you and demonstrate exactly whats to be expected with this glorious upcoming release. I want to start by introducing ARC, I would elaborate further but she is perfectly capable of doing that herself.

ARC will be almost constantly communicating with you in-game giving you updates, and telling you of galactic events.

On to the asset updates. Cerberus is almost done in terms of ships. Since the last release we have added 3 more Capital ships to each faction, as well as replace all the stock ships left in Cerberus. Each ship in game has been given its own respective voice overs courtesy of MEDiscovery who has been working overtime to help get Cerberus done! I spent two weeks updating all the skins on the Cerberus ships to better emulate the ones seen in Mass Effect. Included below are some simple before/afters for two of the ships that have undergone the update process.


With new bloom shaders that we have been provided the ships now have that pop that has been missing for so long.

Included below is a small playthrough/Interview I did with Gul_Dukat of SA3 that includes A LOT of the changes that will be included the following update.

We are releasing Version .3 Onslaught on

Why don't you just make that color section depend on what color we make their faction in Sins?

Same with Cerberus, just make yellow marks appear yellow when playing a yellow themed player.

Reapers can have no marks like this please? :)
I don't want red striped reapers running around or the lights to not look right because the reapers need to be Red themed for bad guys lol

Sorry, not concerning this mod but anyone noticed that Maelstrom mod is kinda gone from the mod page now? I really love that mod too :(

there's a special Diplomacy/Entrenchment/Vanilla for this game. Each version of it moved to the corresponding page. It's still there, have no fear.

Check the Diplomacy and Entrenchmentsubcategories. They have their own pages now.

A question: Will this require an expansion, or can I run this on basic sins?

Also, regarding the comment chain below me, why not have a ship ability in the style of a torpedo like how Normandy SR1 used to gut Sovereign once it's shields were downed.

it requires diplomacy, and eventually rebellion, and that wasnt a torpedo

This might sound like a stupid question, but it is one that interests me.

How will the Reaper Faction be balanced against the other two, I get that Cerberus will have more advanced Tech from black market deals and reverse engineering Reaper Tech then the Citadel, while the Citadel will be more mass production and diversity. But the Reapers are supposed to be near one man, or one ship, armies, with the Citadel fleets barely able to hold them off in ME3, and in Earths case, they werent at all, from what I understood from ME3, the Citadel Council was merely slowing them down more then anything but I could be wrong.

Will they be extremely powerful, but expensive and slow to build, or will they be downgraded, making them more into dreadnoughts then the unbeatable monsters we have been fighting for three games?

Love the idea of this mod, will be watching this develop very carefully :)

I don't think they weren't that unbeatable, I mean, if Shepard can kill like 4 of them with help then they should be able to be killed by other things. Remember that the reason the Earth fleets got decimated was because they were unsuspecting and the Reapers used a huge proportion of their fleet to get back at humanity and Shepard for being a badass Reaper killer. I'm pretty sir in the codex it states that three Dreadnaughts can take down a Reaper-Capital ship, so it'll probs take like 20 Cruisers to do the same job or maybe even less, I don't know.

shepard killed destroyers, not true reapers. Destroyers are only 160 meters in length. Sovereign was the ONLY big reaper that was killed, and only because it's shields failed due to an unknown error. So yeah, the BIG ones are.... or seem unbeatable by conventional means.

it takes 3-4 shots from a dreadnought-sized Mass Accelerator to kill a reaper dreadnought. The problem is, one magnetohydrodynamic blast from a reaper can take out damn-near any ship in the galaxy in one shot. That's where the problem of balance lies.

I thought some ships could withstand it. I saw some cruisers get hit in the final battle and their shields held. I'm sure every ship isn't gonna be sliced and diced by one shot. Anyway back tothe game, I was thinking that as you say most ships would get killed in one hit, the main gun could be a special power that hits the enemy. The Reapers could have lighter armanants like the molten metal they can spit out of their fingers, or just geneal smaller weaponary. What do you think?

Reaper is powerful, yes. But very expensive and use lot of fleet supply. Lord_Set make this mod to be exactly like in ME lore. Unfortunately, translate into Sins gamecode is difficult to balance to make it ME canon. To be blunt, It is hard to one shot kill with reaper weapon unless it use ability. SHip ability can do that. But make it use cooldown That just idea.
