SoGE is a Star Wars Total Conversion for SoaSE: Rebellion with it's roots in the Homeworld 2 mod Star Wars: Warlords which features the two primarily sides of the Galactic Civil War, the Clone Wars, and the Yuuzhan Vong War. The current public version works for Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion 1.80/1.82+ and, with or without, all DLC. Rated #6 player's choice in MOTY 2014.
Whilst the mod is very good and both sounds and visual effects are breath taking and awesome, the game severely lacks in stability after enabling the mod, however when the game does work it is very good and I love playing it very much, it would appear however the game likes to crash and make minidump files and decides not to work, even with reinstall of both the game and the mod.
Sins of a Galactic Empire is one of five Star Wars modifications for Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion, and it currently stands as the best. This position is sustained by the mod's wide array of content, good visuals, and consistency of content between the provided factions.
Why a seven? Well, aside from what the mod gets right, there is quite a bit more that it gets wrong. Some of the model quality is inconsistent, especially looking at the lower quality Vong ships. Many of the weapon particle effects are also quite sloppy and uninteresting. From a game play standpoint, much of what made SoaSE a great game was altered, and not for the better. The mod redundantly bloats the entire game economy, ship health and damage, and fighter quantity of the ships, while also making capital ships as available as frigates. The small size of the ships and long range of their weapons also creates visually lacking combat scenarios. The mod does attempt to fix some of this with "extension mods", but that creates extra installation effort without resolving the issues in the core mod, which is a pointless mess. Why would you admit there are problems but not truly fix them? I cannot answer that question. There are also annoyances such as excess ability points on capital ships that remove from the game polish.
Aside from all of this, Sins of a Galactic Empire still stands as the most finished Star Was mod for SoaSE. Will it stay on the top? I personally believe that some of the upcoming Star Wars mods that are aiming for a more polished feel will eventually surpass SoaGE, however they currently fall short of this.
Ratings are quite pointless, as in the end all that matters is whether or not you should spend your time on this mod or not. My verdict is;
Yes, this mod is worth spending your time on.
