Frequently Asked Questions

What version of Sins of a Solar Empire is supported?
Sins of the Fallen is a modification for Rebellion.

How do you install and activate Sins of the Fallen?
Please read How to install and activate Sins of the Fallen.

Why does your mod have so many folders?
As Sins of a Solar Empire is a 32bit game it is restricted to 2GB of ram utilization as well as other various hard coded limitations. The stacking structure used with this mod allows more than 2GB of content by allowing portions of the mod to be loaded.

Will you support Diplomacy, Entrenchment or Vanilla?
No, I did have previous versions that supported Entrenchment and Diplomacy (See Release History), but have decided the it was too much effort for one person to try and maintain both.

I hear you have a BSG mod too, why isn't it posted here?
For various reasons moddb used to not host BSG mods, therefore the downloads hosted on this page do not currently contain any BSG related content. Click on either of the Fall of Kobol images to be redirected to the that mod.

How to Install and Activate Sins of the Fallen

The following set of instructions detail how to install the latest release of Sins of the Fallen.

Instructions for downloading and enabling Sins of the Fallen

  • General help on installing mods: How To Install Mods For Sins Of A Solar Empire
  • Download the latest build from moddb.
  • Extract the contents into your Rebellion mod folder as described in "How to install mods for Sins of a Solar Empire"

IMPORTANT
This mod relies heavily on stacking to activate various parts. Failure to follow the guidelines detailed below may result in odd/unsupported behavior to mini-dumps.

Quick Guide (Click the picture!!!)




Rules and order of activation:

SotF(0) Translations(0..1)

  • Optional, Only one allowed if activated
  • Supported Translations: French, German and Spanish
  • Mod translations are automated with Bing
  • Additional translations are possible if original translation is provided for the game.

SotF(1) Planets(0..1)

  • Optional, Only one allowed if activated.
  • Only one Planets package should be activated at a time due to limitations associated with the Galaxy Scenario Definition. Activating more than one will not add more planets, but may add more memory potentially exceeding 2GB of ram even on lower settings.
  • Planetary systems include: Kobol, Rigel, SinsPlus, Sol and Tenorias.

SotF(2) Addon(0..m)

  • Optionally activated (i.e. not activating the addon simply means the features won't be present in the game).
  • Any or all of the addons may be currently activated at the same time.
  • Addons should follow tier 0 or tier 1 packages if present.

SotF(3) Militia(0..1)

  • Replaces the standard TEC Militia with the race of your choice.
  • Some races are easier due to DPS/Supply while others are badass due to supply/dps differences
  • Activating a militia package requires the same Race package to be activated. For example: SotF(3) Militia(0..1) Rogue Reb requires SotF(4) Race(1..m) Rogue Reb.
  • Militia should follow tier 2 or higher packages

SotF(3) Pirate(0..1)

  • Replaces or adds to the standard Pirate faction.
  • Activating a pirate package requires the same Race package to be activated (for non-stock races). For example: SotF(3) Pirate(0..1) Rogue Light Reb requires SotF(4) Race(1..m) Rogue Reb.
  • Pirate should follow tier 2 or higher packages

SotF(4) Race(1..m)

  • At Least one required.
  • Any combination of races may be currently activated at the same time (effects should be reduced to High/Medium/Low if you activate a lot).
  • NOTE: Some systems may not be able to activate all races. Do not activate races if you don't plan to use them. This will save on system resources.
  • Any races not loaded including Tec, Advent and Vasari will not be selectable at game start.
  • Races may be added in any order, however the opening theme music will be based on the top most mod.
  • Races should be activated after any tier 3 or higher package.
  • Mini-dump WARNING - Sins loads all textures and meshes whether used in game or not. Loading ALL available races may exceed hard code limits and/or memory limitations regardless of how good your rig is. For example my private build has 11 total races 3 core, 2 from another sub-mod, and the 6 fallen races. Loading them all exceeds the hard coded mesh limit and ram limitations eventually crashing the game. Using LAA may alleviate this issue.

SotF(5) Core(0..1) Flagship

  • Optional
  • This mod must be enabled after tier 4 race packages.
  • Flagships are randomly chosen from the Battleship, Colony, Carrier and Siege capital ships for that faction.
  • Flagships are automatically spawned at game start and you only get ONE.
  • Flagships have FOUR targets per fire-able bank and increase at double the rate of capital ships per level.

SotF(5) Core(1..1)

  • This mod must be placed after tier 4 packages or the mod will mini-dump. This is the core mod and has all the necessary wiring to enable the various planets, addons, and races together in SotF.

Example Activation:
Activates custom translation, planet package, addons, nephilim militia, races, and flagships (Note the order of these activations matches the above rules).
SotF R5 Installation Screens

Recommended Effects Settings (Depending on your system specs and map size you may need to reduce the Detail)

  • Planet : Detail - High
  • Ship : Detail - High, Extras - Medium, Bump - Low
  • Building : Detail - High, Extras - Medium, Bump - Low

SotF R5 Installation Screens

Limited Effects Settings
These settings might be possible in smaller maps and/or limiting the amount of features activated. No guarantees and I suggest you monitor you memory usage. Personal experience shows Sins gets unstable on my machine as the process starts to exceed 1.7GB without LAA applied. Applying LAA may allow you to exceed 2GB but is system dependant on stability.

  • Planet : Detail - Highest
  • Ship : Detail - Highest, Extras - High , Bump - Low
  • Building : Detail - Highest, Extras - High , Bump - Low
  • Show Mesh Team Colors - On
  • Show Mesh Highlight Filter - On or Off (Off is darker textures)

Optional Settings (May help with performance)

  • Show Cargo Ship Icons - Off
  • Show Planet Elevators - Off
  • Use Colored Skyboxes - Off
  • Show Asteroids - Off
  • Show Dust Clouds - Off

Optional User Interface Settings

  • Empire Tree (All settings): Off (Typically referred to as trimming the empire tree
  • and is reporting to help with lag)

Avoid settings that might cause mini-dumps
To avoid the 2GB limit Extra's and Bump should be reduced as much as possible for your system specs. The following labels are guides that can be used to determine which settings are appropriate when enabling new races with this mod. This is only a guide, your mileage may vary and no guarantees are made as to your systems ability to run this mod.

*** IT SAYS MINI-DUMP HERE WHEN ALL HIGHEST IS SELECTED ***

Were any changes made to the Flagship RNG?
I really can't get for example a Colonial Loyalist Pegasus (I'm fine with that; don't play them anyway) and, something that bothers me, I seem to have really bad luck in getting a Rouge Trader Green Arcadia Flagship. I really enjoyed to have that massiv DPS Monster paired with the Yamato Titan.

Found this issue. Part of the research relied on the DLC while the planets did not. It's fixed in the latest build 40.5

Also directional shield of Archangel class is not working as auto-cast, it never activates until you press it manually.

It only autocasts when the ship takes 10% damage per the ability.

Hey zombierus5 I love your mods but I downloaded both the baked version of sins of the fallen and fall of kobol my issue is that when both are enabled I can only play as the kobol factions by moving the mod up in the list and that also disables the other factions so I can't play with vanilla kobol and fallen factions at the same time is there a way to make the two mods work together so I can play all factions

You need the full versions to mix/match things.

Baked is intended to remove the activation complexity but this also removes the flexibility of the full versions.
