Blog RSS Feed Report abuse Latest News: what is a Special report and one on Star Trek: Sacrifice of Angels 2 Mod

2 comments by zwood on May 18th, 2014

Hello

This is first "Special" report on star trek mods. The idea is explain what the mod is and features within the mod. We will also report about these mods as they develop or release new versions.

So as many of you might of seen on our members list we have now began to get the devs from many star trek mods to join us, and I have asked if we can work together to produce reports on their mods.

so lets get to it.

Our first report is on Star Trek: Sacrifice of Angels 2 a total conversion for the game sins of a solar empire: Rebellion and also their is a version for Diplomacy as well. This mod brings races from the star trek universe into sins. Their are a total of 5 major races, which are playable and also a number of other races which make up the new raiders/pirates.

the 5 playable races are

  • The Borg
  • The federation
  • The Klingon Empire
  • The Romulans
  • The Dominion (my favorite because you know the breen)

The pirates are a mash up of other races such as the Maquis.

The mod star trek ships such as the galor class from the cardi's or the legendary birds of prey for the mighty Klingon Empire, it also brings other things into the mod such as the Nor station or better known as DS9 look alike, and the detail is amazing. Some of the models are abit dated however but the dev team have been working on new ones and from what I've seen they look fantastic , this mod is really cool because you have to use strategy to win. each race has their strengths and weaknesses, so you have to play to them to win because if you don't like me for the first couple of times you gonna get wiped out. 

I love the concept of the game-play, one of the things i loved about this mod was that  The Dominion have to ensure loyalty throughout their forces otherwise they will turn on you (damn traitors!). Little things like this really make you think and enrich the game-play even further because not only do you have to worry about the enemy but also your own forces. The Borg like me is everybody's nightmare in the mod because they are OP, why because they are the Borg they are meant to be OP if not whats the fun in playing against them if your not sending hundreds of soldiers to their deaths against a single cube.

Don't worry their are tutorials if you get stuck on how to play as the races on the mods homepage ( i'll put a link at the bottom.) 

Overall its one of the best mods out their for star trek. challenging gameplay,wonderful attention to detail and a great support team if you get abit stuck. 

I would highly reckon Star trek fans head over and check out this mod because it is worth it. It is one of the mods that has kept me coming back for more. 

The team have and still work really hard to improve this mod and I wish them Good luck for the next update. 

I hope you have enjoyed the report and I hope you zoom on over to their page and download their mod. I hope to see you on the battlefield soon, real soon because the borg are killing us out here. 

until next time good fans. 

Live long and Prosper.

First off, what a great mod, guys. Unbelievable amount of work! I just got the game off Steam for the sale, and I've played your version more than the "real" thing... :)

Question, though: how the frack do you make the Scout Cube's Transwarp Conduit work? I've tried using it on planets to let other ships come the Scout, using it on planets to let other ships leave the well that the Scout is currently at, and mixed and matched all of these things with the jumping or jumped planet having a Transwarp Gate.

And, I don't see how to search through the 1200+ comments to see if someone has already answered. Sorry to bother, and thanks again!

So, I have the latest diplomacy version of SoA 2, but for some reason there doesn't appear to be any phaser fire. It just uses the standard laser-ish fire of the original game. Anyone know why this is happening?

Because the TMP era Phasers are based off what was seen in Wrath of Khan, and the effect we made for it in 2008 use the vanilla laser textures. We have no one that can create a new effects so we are stuck with what we got.

If you need to cheat to win you might as well not play at all.

no such thing, but you can use the Developer.exe to spawn ships, credits and research.
