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.

Desura probably put it in the wrong folder. It should be in
AppData\Local\Ironclad Games\Sins of a Solar Empire\Mods-Diplomacy v1.37

I know this probably shouldn't belong here, but when I play as the Borg, I almost immediately get destroyed, and it takes so long to expand and solidify my status as a powerful entity (like the Borg should be).
Does anyone have any tips that could assist me? (Besides not sucking :p)

Instead of going civilian research go military, keep ur first lab and research the volcanic and ice planet research, then get military research only. Focus on hull research and spam planet assimilators. A fleet of planet assimilators are pretty much unstoppable if you do the hull research. Use them as a mobile wall shielding ur forward planets slowly expanding. When ready click them all to go explore and replace them with cubes as you Loose the frigates. Then you got yourself an invasion force ready to strike and a lot of frigates disbanding the enemy force forcing them to dividing their army all over their planets. send in 1-3 cubes to clear out local forces and the planet is yours. it Works against a team of 3 enemies trying to bring you Down together. Any more Allied units and it wont Work, then you expand too slowly this way.

Putting this out there; my friends, relatives and I spend a lot of time playing your mod (all factions) would you like me to send you a bug list I have compiled in my head from our games? I also spend a lot of time playing all the factions against varying conditions and have some balance adjustments in mind I would like to trial. Where would i find the files to edit ship stats and abilities(might need to make a few too)?

Yes, and GameInfo.

Ships are named CAPITALSHIP_etc and Frigateetc. It shouldn't be a problem to figure out which is which, abilities are referenced in the ship files, just follow the file trails to see what needs changed.

Note, if they're gibberish, they'll need converted to text, The files required are included in each applicable directory, simply copy the files from gameinfo into the convertdata folder and run _Entity_BIN-2-TXT.

Do not bin the entire file set, convertdata.exe is broken and doesn't work on ship spawn files calling required ships.
