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.

you guys should add distant stars planets in this mod! then you can have a real sol system for maps, it would go far for the immersion. I don't really care about forest, urban, toxic, etc planets but the solar system planets.

At the top youve got a picture of the galaxy, to me it looks bumpped/normal mapped, from my experiences, it makes ships look awful, in star trek, when they are bump mapped, because they have windows. It may just be the texture, but yeah, it looks weird to me, but that is like the only thing, that ive found that i dont like :)

You are the exception. Though i do agree with you. I liked the smooth season one thru three galaxy myself. However, most like the season four thru six "bumpy" galaxy, and would have an absolute fit if i smoothed it (you know how trek fans get). I have not had any free time to make new bump maps for the ships that "shouldnt" be so bumpy. Right now they have quick, and dirty bump maps. The bad thing about having only one artist on the team :/

The balance is being totally re-worked as the mod is being totally rebuilt yet again to deal with the sins 2 gig crash issue, and lag in late game.

The 0.5 series will have 1/2 scale units to deal with the ships flying outside of the wells. Weapon ranges will be changed to help with this issue as well.

The Borg will be completely worked over. They arent finished which is why the AI doesnt work well for them. Most units will be buffed, but some units like the unicomplex may get a nerf. The Anti Structure roletype units in the mod are actually "Anti Borg" units. Their weapons are, or will be tuned to specifically fight Borg. The borg will be balanced vs all four other factions COMBINED. The intended MP game is the four factions vs one AI Borg player. In order to force alliances, or you can try to defeat them solo, but it will be tough. As it should be.

The fed starbase was built with a full interior. Sins doesnt support animations so we left the doors open. We are keeping it that way.

Full interior? I don't remember it being completely hollow in the shows; didn't the hangar have walls?

About the Federation Starbases: the big hangar door thing doesn't have any walls, so if you look at it from the wrong angle you can see the hollow inside of the Starbase. Other than that the models look amazing.

I think you have completely mischaracterized the balance of power between the Federation and the Borg. Have you ever gone up against a Borg Uniplex before? Hmmm, yeahhh... We are talking several hundred thousand hp with the firepower of about 3 Romulan star bases combined. So, either what your talking about is an imbalance between the Borg and other races at the outset, or you are just wacko. Also, my bro and I attempted to take out a Borg Uniplex with two fully upgraded Romulan fleets of DDrex warbirds. Both fleets died in about a minute and a half.

the problem is ive never seen borg ai bulidng an unikomplex ^^
thats why the federation ai can kill the borg they wont build unicomplex
second with a fleet of akiaras you can kill every builidng ^^ a normal starbase is down within seconds a unicomplex need a little bit longer (most of your ships die but hey unicomplex is down ^^)
