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.

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?

Keep in mind, the mod is still in development, and part of the point of our iterative release model is to get feedback on features as we develop the mod (and therefore, for example, older factions will tend to be more polished/finalized than newer ones). If you have any feedback or suggestions for what you want to see, or just want to discuss the mod and your strategy, head over to our forums or ModDB profile.

...For Those New To Ascendancy...

Pentastar PotentialRebel Revenge

Ascendancy 1.0 Open Beta (For Sins V1.82  STEAM)


Keep in mind, Sins is updating to v1.83 soon, so this version is acting as a chance for us to collect feedback to release the "full" 1.0 on the final 1.83 patch for Sins.

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.

...Game Nights...

In order to facilitate multiplayer matches with our players, we'll be doing community game nights on predetermined weekends with Ascendancy players and developers. If you follow our Steam group or join the forums below, events will be posted in advance. We'll be shuffling around time zones to allow as many people to play as possible.

That's all for now. Hope you enjoy 1.0, we'll have information coming soon on 1.1 and Imperial Civil War 2.2

I've a question, out of random curiosity. Have you added an intro movie to the mod?

Not for the "beta." The full release for v1.83 will have the NR trailer, which will also be released separately tomorrowish.

For some reason, when I click on the downloads button it gives me the option of uploading stuff. Weird.
