...Ascendancy 1.0F Released...
While the Moff Council and the New Republic have begun their bids for control of the galaxy, in the Outer Rim and beyond, more contenders await their chance to strike. Can the Empire of the Hand unite the galaxy against the impending external threats, or will the Pentastar Alignment find the opportune moment to strike and establish a new form of Imperial galactic leadership?
...For Those New To Ascendancy...
Play as the New Republic, Imperial Remnant, Empire of the Hand or Pentastar Alignment in the post-Endor Star Wars galaxy, each with unique ship rosters, abilities, playstyles and tech trees.
Conquer the Star Wars Galaxy on several maps with various configurations, featuring several new planet types and canon planet placements.
Completely redesigned UI, and overhauled graphical effects.
Several overhauled and all-new gameplay mechanics, ship systems degrading with damage, and the ability to entirely destroy planets.
...New in 1.0F...
New Capital Ships: Intego (Hand), Lucrehulk (Alignment), Torpedo Sphere (Remnant)
Fixed multiple bugs
Several balancing changes
Some new tech and abilities
Many performance optimizations
As opposed to being a content-oriented release, 1.0F (or 'full') is intended to fix several of the issues in 1.0 before we work on breaking the game again for 1.1 For a more comprehensive overview, see here.
I've scheduled it to release about when I intend to wake up, so I can put out any fires all day because I'm selfish like that. Otherwise my phone will blow up while I'm asleep and I don't like that. - Corey
The version for v1.82 is available now, with support for 1.83 coming as soon as possible
Before playing the mod to increase stability, also enable Large Address Aware to bypass Sins' 2GB memory limit issues. LAA is included in the download, simply open it, set the mode to basic, find your Sins of a Solar Empire Rebellion.exe file and click the box to enable large address aware, then save. This only needs to be done once, so if you have already done it for other mods you can skip this step.
In order to facilitate multiplayer matches for our players, we'll be doing pre-planned community game nights on predetermined weekends with Ascendancy players and developers. The first of these days will be Saturday May 7th, at 2pm EST and will be hosted on lead developer Corey's personal stream, at www.hitbox.tv/CoreyLoses . Access for games that day will be first-come-first serve, and depending on how people feel about it it, we'll look at different ways to expand this.
Onwards and Upwards
1.0 may have just been released (or be about to be released, if you're reading this before noon on release day), but we've already started working on 1.1, including a longer version of this news post on our forums with reflections on 1.0, general plans for 1.1, and an exciting new mechanic for 1.1. It'll be posted here once the release post has its time in the sun, but in the meantime you can see some of our thoughts on 1.1 here: Thrawnsrevenge.com

Thrawn is one of the best characters of the EU. This mod, and it's predecessor bring that character off the story pages. And into our game. Something the movies and official games have failed to do. Short of Rebellion (Supremacy.) The best SW's game ever in my opinion, but painfully dated by this point. Delving into the ideals of his background, in a fun and expansive SW mod is simply a joy. I'm waiting for 1.0 to authorize even as I speak, but .95 already showed a care to crafting a quality mod…
