Thrawn's Revenge II: Ascendancy is a total conversion set in the Star Wars galaxy after the Original Trilogy. The first release will feature the New Republic and Imperial Remnant, with more factions coming after that. For more information, see the mod's wiki.

...Ascendancy 0.9 Release...

The Emperor has fallen, and the Empire is in shambles after their defeat at Endor. Can the Rebel Alliance, now reformed as the fledgling New Republic, re-establish the traditions of the old Republic and restore peace or will the Empire manage to unite under a strong leader to once again impose order over a lawless galaxy?

General Polish

For a full new-user guide (don't expect to do everything the same as in Sins) and more in depth information on ship rosters, see the wiki. There's still a ton of information we're working on adding, so it'll become more useful as we go. We also have a board to help people who want to play Ascendancy online to organize games with other players, which you can find here. Keep in mind, this is a beta version and the primary purpose of it is to test features, tweak as needed and to help with balancing (which is currently still very much in progress) so please post any issues you encounter, suggestions, or feedback you may have on our forums.

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.

You're not actually our only hope, but in order to help speed up and smooth out the process of developing the 1.0 and on, we're (as always) looking for talented individuals to join our team. These are obviously unpaid positions, but if you want to join a team which can help you mutually improve skills, build a portfolio and bang your head against your desk in frustration while spending altogether too much time learning trivia about Star Wars this is the perfect opportunity.

The roles we have open are:
3D Modeler
You'll be responsible for creating 3D models within reasonable poly ranges (typically 1-5 thousand) for use ingame based on existing designs. Typically these will be ships, however they can also be other exciting things like buildings and rocks. You can use any program you wish, as long as it exports to some sort of common format.

Texture Artists
You'll be responsible for taking the above models, and then texturing them (typically hard metal surfaces on 1024x1024 to 2048x2048 res textures).

If you have experience in either area or both areas and want to apply, send examples of your work to

Not a fan of the new UI to be honest. Do think the work your doing is great but don't understand wht travel is not allowed to other stars? I understand that in star wars travel outside the galaxy was not possible but travel to other star systems was. Personally I'm a bit of a turtle and like to rush the planets connected to the star build up a wall while I fill out my star system before picking another guys star to go attack.

In the mod, as it says, the "star" function of the base game fills the function of the galactic core (although the model hasn't been changed to reflect it yet). The "system" in Sins terms in the mod is the Star Wars galaxy, and it's not like they'd be travelling to other galaxies. When you jump from Mon Calamari to Kessel or Coruscant to Pantolomin or whatever, you're jumping between systems; these planets aren't all in the same star system. Otherwise every single planet in the game would be its own system, since star systems in Star Wars rarely have more than one notable planet in them. If we kept stars for individual systems, then every map would have one star per planet, any pathing would be lost, and in order to have 150 planets you'd need to have 150 stars, so you're doubling the object count on the map (half of which would be useless, and not actually act as a chokepoint since there's only one thing connected to each, which you could freely jump between) while also breaking the AI entirely (the AI in sins is godawful at dealing with multi-star maps).

understand what you mean but still hope that you can add it in even as an optional choice or a add on. Such as what you did for the galaxy gun. Which is something I really like since I find super weapons to be highly annoying.

People are free to make their own maps with multiple galaxies of vourse, but we won't be. It doesn't make sense with the source material, none of us ever really liked that system and it causes a few issues with the game.

but will the tech be there to be researched? Its easy to make your own maps but a tad annoying when you realise you cant jump to the other guys system :)

Its also really easy for people to put that research in if they want to make that map. There's no reason flr for us to pack in extra stuff for functionality we don't support in the mod and which doesn't make sense in the context of the mod.

Uploading a patch to hopefully deal with the credit issue, as well as a few other minor bugs, mostly string and stat related.

I don't know if you know about this or not.

So I found a bug when I was playing a match against the AI. I was paying for a level up for one of my ships and the AI attack. And I guess he leveled from the enemy. And the credits glitched where I had income of about 23 credits, but I only had 1 credit. Selling resources didn't give me any credits, but I was able to buy 10k of both resources, planet upgrades, and ships. However I was not able to buy any research.

I've near ran in to this glitch before, but I normally don't pay for my ships to level up.

We are aware of this bug (it's listed in the known issues in the changelog). The level up thing is definitely useful information, thank you.
