Battlefield Refit Add-On by Thomas Moore (Fangoriously)

This Replacement balance mod from fangoriously changes the core game of 1.2 CTA reshaping the balance of the game for all factions, As one of the lead balance designers for CTA when i met Thomas he had a distinct idea of how he wanted to change CTA...

He set about shaping and crafting his own distinct version of the mods balance seeking realism over all, while we didnt always agree in our conversations over the direction of balance in CTA myself and my fellow balance designer Draconis agreed with the other devs long ago when we started the Add On Section and before that it was only right that Trek fans have their own shot with out assets at forming their own worlds and game and Thomas has just done that, having played his mod even before the 1.2 release its not only enjoyable but it offers a unique and well rounded new take on the game.

So if you want a change please try the Battlefield Refit Add On by Thomas Moore.

2nd Dreadnought Add-On by General Martox

Sometimes one dreadnought just doesn't feel like enough... So one day one of our Mod Fans came to me via way of PM and Asked how do you give everyone more dreads, i explained that we only allowed the dominion to produce clones of their main dreadnought, but this didn't deter General Martox, he was on a mission to craft his own addon extraordinary as it may seems his sole goal was to produce an add on that allows multiple dreadnoughts and hes done just that

Known Space Add-On by Carl Kelly

Gul Dukut described the add on pack by Carl Kelly as an excellent addition to the wonderful maps already created by our very own mapmaker Cailean556...Carls maps add various locations from Star Trek History, giving you the chance to battle across sectors of the Alpha, Beta and Gamma Quadrants, I cant honestly tell you how much time goes into map testing and i think Carls dedication to producing high quality maps and then testing them really shrines through in this map pack, so please download and enjoy like myself :)

This Is Bane Signing out, oh and dont forget to say thanks to all the guys for making such excellent Add-Ons for you CTA fans out there!

**Disclaimer** the CTA Devs are unfortunately unable to assist with the installation of add on packs or fixing of bugs for add on packs, you can leave the add on authors messages on the forums and add ons section of their pages**

So i'm currently playing a 5 FFA as Romulans, 30minutes in and an 'Unknwon Probe" ship has showwed up at one of my planetgs. My entire fleet is there awaiting orders and as soon as they engage it it uses some abiility that disables everything. Also its bombing my planet and i can't do anything about it. It keeps using its super EMP ability, on top ofg that it has 65k hull and 356 armor, although its worth 4k exp. Is this some kind of Borg vessel?( Borg aren't in this match btw). How do i defeat this thing before it wipes all my planets and gets me killed? Somone please help.

It's a probe of unknown origin that featured in Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home.

As Apostaste has said, the best weapons to use against it (and other monstrous objects, like the Doomsday Machine) is your anti-structure artillery. As you're playing as the Romulans, this would be your T'liss class.

Thank you both for the wonderful support and help.If i'm not mistaken the Artillery ships are great vs Borg as well right?(Quick shout out to the Devs! Romulans Capital Ships are well fleshed out, Love the D'deridex to , it saves my fleet everytime with its cloak. Cardies got a huge fleet with a Hutet, so i use the D'deridex to hit and run with fleet.)

Indeed, nothing beats heavy artillery for hitting the Borg's capital ships.

Artillery dude, heavy artillery, that thing will fall apart. Also an outpost can secure the planet and essentially trap it.

Most likely you're experiencing the extremely common problem of not having LAA applied.

First, find your Sins.exe, located by default here:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\sins of a solar empire rebellion

The relevant file is simply called 'Sins of a Solar Empire Rebellion'. This is your Sins.exe. Right click, go into Properties and ensure that the .exe is NOT set to Read Only.

Then go to wherever you're keeping your CTA files and open the program called Large Address Aware.

Browse and select your Sins.exe mentioned above.

Tick the box indicating that yes, you want the game to access more than 2GB of memory, and click 'Save'.

Play the game.

Hey guys,

I had Rebellion installed since 2012, and have modded/unmodded etc. since then... I was getting crashing when I first applied CTA 1.2, no messages or anything. 3-10 minutes of playing, single or multi-, regardless of map size, unit counts etc. it would just crash out. Finally got one message after a dozen crashes.

I updated graphics drivers first, no change.

You may have already tried this, but I finally went for a clean, fresh install of the game from steam (after the built-in steam file integrity check actually failed, indicating issues with local game file(s), cool feature)and I have been crash free ever since. I personally went through and cleaned out all my old mod folders and saves in "Documents" as well, separate from the game install, just to make sure everything was as clean as possible.

Of course, remember to apply the LAA after the fresh install (and before even launching the game).
