This mod adds a new faction (DkR/Dark Reavers, the name of my gaming clan) to Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion and also enhances all weapon effects and sounds of the existing factions. The DkR faction was originally mechanically identical to the Advent Rebel faction, but has gradually become completely different.

The DkR faction still uses Advent structure models, announcement voices, and their diplomacy tree, but has its own unique main research trees, ships, abilities, strengths, and weaknesses.

The ships are mostly re-skinned Romulan ships with tweaked weapon hardpoints. Why Romulan ships? Well firstly I'm not a modeller so I had to use models from somewhere else (with permission, credits below). Beyond that it's down to personal taste; I love the shape of Romulan ships, and thought they might look cool if they were black instead of green.

Aside from the addition of DkR, the mod changes the weapon effects (particles and sounds) for all the other factions (almost all weapon effects are custom) to make them more impressive and cohesive (TEC green/yellow, Advent blue/teal, Vasari red/orange/pink). Some ability effects have also been changed, along with some other minor modifications.

General Features

  • Addition of a new playable faction (DkR)
  • Enhanced weapon/ability effects and sounds for all factions
  • Optional strikecraft component which reduces the number of craft per squad (for performance reasons) whilst maintaining overall balance
  • Team coloured Eradica titan
  • Enlarged Ankylon titan
  • Fixed several minor bugs present in Rebellion

DkR Faction Features

  • Completely new ship models and textures (other than their construction ships and trade ships)
  • Completely new weapon effects and sounds
  • Custom research trees (apart from the borrowed the Advent diplomacy tree)
  • Custom capital ship, titan, starbase, superweapon and frigate abilities with custom sounds and particle effects

Potential Future Features

  • Custom planet module meshes and textures
  • Custom user interface graphics
  • Rebellion texture optimisation

The mod was built for Rebellion v1.90.

It's a new faction. Not really anything to do with Advent anymore.

Hehe, the one you downloaded would've used the Advent Rebel titan as I wasn't able to find a suitable replacement. I've just uploaded a new version which replaces it with a model that another mod creator has kindly let me use. I've also replaced all the Advent voices.

Not tried it myself, but should be able to bring it up to date within the next week or so.

I like what you have done here so far is there any plans to do a unique titan or structures. New voices would be a welcome addition as well. but the ships look great. A suggestion for a titan would be the Scimitar.

Heya. Titan model and ship voices are now in. Not a big fan of the Scimitar; decided to use a model created for the Maelstrom mod which fits in quite nicely. Next on the list is probably structures, but may be a while before I get around to those.

A nice visual re-hashing of an existing race. Looks pretty and the particle effects are quite good. Hopefully the author will soon have a go at producing a new tech tree for his race making them distinct from the Advent. In the case of this happening, I'll need to revise my review. 6 out of ten, because in spite of the reasonable visuals (borrowed from other sources, but skinned with a distinct colour scheme) the new race brings nothing new to the gameplay at the moment. Edit: A good start has been…
