Hello all! With the Vong faction having received their overhaul and now being in a fully playable status, I am pleased to announce that we are looking for beta testers to help us hammer out any possible bugs and balance issues. The current beta is run via a Git repository hosted on Bitbucket; full installation details and registration requirements can be found here. To get in, simply PM me your Bitbucket user name or email, or post it here in the comments! It must be noted however, that unlike the old SVN beta, people getting access and then never giving any feedback will not be accepted. In other words, if we do not hear from you for 6-12 months, don't be surprised if you find out that you no longer have access to the repository. We also are doing MP matches on the beta, so if you like MP, this is a good thing to get in on!


The Ro'ik Va'lh, the last Vong ship that is awaiting completion.

On to other matters, I must apologize for the rather cruel April Fools event we had this year. However, it is not a reason to lose hope, but is a reason to gain it! As now it is my pleasure to announce that SoGE is seeking out coders, riggers, and artists, of any skill level, to take on and nurture the KotOR and/or TOR eras. I will personally tutor those interested in partaking in this endeavor before leaving the balancing, rigging, and other necessary work, for these eras to our newcomers. It is also worth noting that Sins "code" is absurdly simple to edit, check out this frigate for an example. The dream of times of old is within reach, but you must reach up and take it in your own hands! There are also more models avaliable than the ones featured in the OR teaser; they just need rigging.

There have been a lot of people recently asking about the infamous crashing to desktop without warning issue. This solution, mentioned in the last news post, has proven itself to be a surefire way of fixing the problem, and is something I cannot recommend enough; that being using Large Address Aware on the Sins executable. By doing this, one eliminates the RAM issues SoGE can cause. In addition, using the Squad Size Redux Addon both decreases RAM usage and helps keep lag at bay.

Finally, it is my great pleasure to reveal the new ISD and Tector meshes created by Maxloef. Rigged from the ground up by myself, these vessels are ready to strike terror into the hearts of the enemies of the Empire. Further, the side turrets fire their own unique particles; octuple barbettes and heavy dual cannons are now in!

None; doing a lot of changes now and the next release will be one of the most notable ones SoGE will get in a long time.

However, I will soon be sending out mass invitations to the new Git-based beta, and opening up applications for the general public as well.

I think Lavo wants to fix, add on to and balance the factions he has now and I think the Timeline is fine as it is.

I wouldn't want the Sith Empire or Old Republic in this mod TBH

Lavo has stated his stance on these things many times.

I would love to see the CSA and Ssi-Ruuk in this mod I never asked because of the reason stated above.

Also read the FAQs.

m468 said it best in his Guest Post.

I'll go ahead and answer this for you even though I am not officially a SOGE dev. Lavo does not plan on adding the Old Republic or the Sith Empire. The mod, in beta is currently running near the 2gig limit imposed by Sins. (The two gig limit is a result of Sins being a 32bit game. It limits the amount of RAM that the game can use. There is a way around it however it does not give much more.) Also there really are not enough distinctive ships from that era to flesh out a fleet in a Sins mod. If you want a mod with those two factions you would have to make a totally separate mod if you actually have enough ships.

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…
