Lord_Drokoth has continued the work along with help from LePaj, and let me say they have done amazing work so far and I know you guys are anxious to play this mod again. That being said we are doing some testing before we share the link, but I will promise a link to the public before the weekend is up.

What is in this version?

First off lets talk races. You will only be able to play as Amarr.


What! Why just Amarr?

Back when I stopped working on the mod I had noted how bad the mess was and how many items were duplicated, loading but not used, etc. In effort to reduce crashes and improve performance we basically have started at nil and begun the modding process again.

At the time I had so many projects in various stages of completion that it became a problem. So, now we have just Amarr and want to polish the one race as much as we can before moving on to the next one.

Nothing is final in this release and subject to change. Both Lord_Drokoth and LePaj deserve credit for this edition of the mod as they have all but fully taken the workload from me. So huge thanks to them! Once the testers report back and we can call this a "stable" build I will post a download link below in the comments.

And a Very Happy Holidays to you all!

Just throwing an Idea out, instead of the usual missile, laser, and stuff for weapons, do you think using EM, Thermal, Kinetic, and explosive ratings for weapons better? I think it would fit rather well. Have the factions, or ships that usually do one damage type, do that instead of just "missile" or "laser" damage.

If that would become too hard or controversial to implement, how about just making missiles do explosive/kinetic, and lasers do EM and Therm Ect. Again, just throwing out an idea that would increase the EVEness a little bit.

Sins does not support any kind of Damage type or similar properties. Only strengths against and/or from various weapon sizes as in the normal games engine. And even that is particularly limited. Such properties are already used for balancing between different weapon sizes.

the words are irrelevant. the possibility is there. That's something that can be done in a reasonable manner. It's a matter of tuning the damage types VS armour types in order to create a cohesive feel.

I figured, but just showing when you hover your mouse on a ship and for example it says "Missile damage: 100" could you not change missile to say, kinetic? or explosive? So missile ships would say "Kinetic damage: 100" instead of "Missile Damage: 100"

Just remember the next release was more about squashing the bugs and errors of the first versions. That said, some of the content and changes you have played before will not be playable in the next release.

As it stands now the team works on full completing the Amarr before adding the other races back into the game.
