We're currently looking to fill two positions within our clique-ish little team to help speed along the development of Ascendancy and make sure that the times when I'm not available to work as much don't keep grinding the mod to a halt. We strongly prefer people who are not currently attached to other projects, because we don't want to divert the resources of other mods, and also want to make sure every mod stays as unique as possible.

1. Coder/Scripter:

Must be familiar with coding in units, planets, research objects and working with the ability/buff systems in Sins of a Solar Empire. Your primary task will be implementing the research subjects and unit abilities. This stuff is actually pretty easy to learn, so not much experience is required; there's plenty of resources that can help anyone just starting out who wants to eventually try to apply for this position.

2. Texture Artist:

We have  huge disparity in the number of modellers to texture artists in the team, and as such have a sizeable backlog of models which need textures. The majority of the upcoming work for this is structure skins and a few ships, however ideally any applicants will help with creating icons for research subjects and planets.

If you're interested in either position, please PM me or email ThrawnsRevenge@gmail.com with examples of your work or modding experience.

Hello, I had a couple of questions regarding this mod and would greatly appreciate a response:

1) Is there any possibility of the Home One being added as a capital ship for the New Republic? I think it would be interesting if it functioned as a command/support ship which would increase the effectiveness of nearby ships through the use of its abilities.

2) Has a decision been made regarding the Imperial Remnant's titans build limit? I personally would like to see a build limit of two while allowing a player to build any combination of the two titans (such as two Executors, a Sovereign and a Executor, etc.) as it would serve the Imperial Remnant's play-style well, but then again it might be too overpowered.

3) How will the fighters be balanced? For example, will there be any advantages to using TIE Fighters over TIE Interceptors or Y-Wings over K-Wings? I would imagine that lower quality fighters will have faster build times and will be available only on earlier era ships, but will certain fighters, such as the TIE Defender, also have build limits on each ship they are buildable on?

I would like to once again thank the development team for this mod, as I love great Star Wars mods. :)

1. The Home One itself will be the flagship for the New Republic in the Flagship Victory gametype, in which it will have suitable abilities as Ackbar's flagship. It won't be made into a buildable ship because that wouldn't really make any sense.

2. There is a hardcoded build limit in Sins of 1 Titan. We've considered using other methods to allow more, but there are a lot of balance issues that could cause.

3. Can't really give you a solid answer at this point.

Thank you for the response Corey.

1) I was referring to a generic MC80 Home One type Star Cruiser, and not Admiral Ackbar's specific ship the Independence.

2) I believe that Sins of a Galactic Empire got around the limit by making titans a call in ability rather than buildable, but as you said, balancing will probably be the greater concern.

Thanks again; I cannot wait to play this mod.

Hope the website gets worked out soon, seems like it's been longer than originally projected. Regardless, this mod looks amazing, and I'll definitely be buying SoaSE just for this! Keep up the good work!

Does Sins support Hero Units, or in other words, will Ascendancy include Hero Units like the EaW mod did?

There are ways to do it, however at this point we don't really think we like the gameplay patterns it would produce in this kind of game.

Honestly, any estimate would be a bad estimate or at least misleading at this point. Most of the art is done and ingame as far as basic ship rosters but the rest varies a lot.
