It is my pleasure to announce the release of SoGE 946392c! This release brings with it a number of changes, both in terms of gameplay and visuals.

Gameplay

  • The AI has been reworked and buffed. Do not be afraid to try out Easy difficulty now, you might be surprised by the capabilities of the Normal AI!
  • The range of all ships and abilities, plus the size of gravity wells, has been reduced by 25% for an enhanced cinematic experience and more enjoyable play.
  • The cost of ships, structures, and research have been halved, and income rates have been adjusted. Further, the number of resource asteroids per planet has been reduced, income per resource asteroid increased accordingly. These changes have the two fold effect of giving SoGE a much more vanilla Sins feel, and facilitating planet management, while maintaining the previously established balance.
  • The Alliance now has the Quasar Fire in their lineup
  • For the CIS, the Droid Tri-fighter is now their advanced starfighter, replacing the Nantex, while the Advanced Droid Bomber now takes on the advanced starbomber role.
New Yuuzhan Vong Civilian Tech Tree

  • The CIS, Republic, and Yuuzhan Vong have all received new civilian tech trees, a demonstration of what SoGE's next focus is in terms of gameplay changes.
  • The Yuuzhan Vong faction has been completely reworked, thanks to their ships' health system being entirely redone, plus the new tech changes, the Vong are a force to be feared.
  • The descriptions for all ships in the game have been updated, to make the mod more accessible to those unfamiliar with Star Wars. Included in each description is the number of squadrons the ship is noted, if applicable, and for combat ships the targets per bank count of the primary weapon(s) has been included as well.

Visual

  • Brand new UI, created by Ludo Kreesh. 
  • New capital ship explosions
  • Virtually all weapon particles have either been rehauled or replaced

  • Several fighter models have been replaced, new bump maps have been created for all ships/structures, and many ships have been given proper hard edges+tangents.
  • The skyboxes in the mod have been replaced with new ones. Make sure you turn on colored skyboxes to see them!

  • New bloom shaders have been included to make bloom much nicer.
  • Shields are now visible when ships are hit by enemy fire. Small amounts of hits will make shields flare up briefly, while large volumes of fire will make ships light up like a Christmas tree.
  • New ISD models by Max of STA3.

For those who don't want to wait for the next patch, here's a fixed version of the 551 planet Star Wars map (now spawns Supercap factories): Mediafire.com

Loving the mod, just have a quick question about the pirates: Do the pirates respawn? This is just a general gameplay question really, I was just wondering if I fend off enough pirate attacks if they'll just start getting weaker and weaker?
I would keep a giant fleet on the planet the pirates seemed to attack me at every time and completely annihilate the pirate fleet, but they'd send another one during the next raid of near equal strength. Just curious in case I should stop trying to turtle the pirates.

Whenever a pirate raid occurs, it spawns new ships. That's how Sins works with pirates. The only way to stop pirate raids is to destroy the pirate base (planet).

Hey SoGE Team,
First off, awesome job. I am barely able to tear myself away from the rebellion mod for midterms studying (gonna bite me later, I know.)

The only complaint I have is that I cannot seem to get a supercap factory to show up at my home world on the Star Wars Galaxy map. It has shown up on other maps; both large and small, both quick-start and regular, and a bunch of other variables I've tried playing around with haven't changed anything. Is this purposeful or is there a known fix? (And if it is purposeful: whyyyyy oh whyyyyy??? I really need an executor to feel fulfillment here guys, help me out!)

BTW, I came across a fix for the minidump crashing, or for anyone who wants to get back to good ol' "highest" effects setting (This fix #2, but has all kinds of fixes for anybody else) (Also, if using fix #2 with a 4GB RAM computer, you can change the value from "3072" to "4096", I think that is the value. In any case you can use 40-something-something and it works cuz I did it with great results. Check your computer first by running "dxdiag" to check your RAM just in case. Note that I still sometimes get a minidump crash, so still save a lot, but they are far fewer and less frequent):

That SW Galaxy map has been fixed in the beta; it will be included in the net patch.

As for the minidump crashing, using LAA or similar applications will help somewhat, but those will not be as effective as enabling a paging file, or running Sins on Linux via WINE.

I don't know if it's just me or not but whenever I try to start a campaign and the game loads but at the end it just says campaign lost. Is there anything I should check for?

Sounds like you have an old version of Sins, as this sort of problem happens on version 1.031 and earlier. In Steam, right-click the game, hit properties, then local files, and then verify integrity of game cache.

I have to give it a seven. While the mod most certainly looks nice, it's scale, both visually and gameplay-wise, doesn't work well in Sins. All costs have been increased and so has resource collection, but they feel harder to control as a result. As for the appearance, all the systems appear to have been scaled up in size and the ships scaled down. I would have preferred the game to have more of a vanilla Sins feel than it has now because it makes you feel more involved when you can see your ships…
