Hello, I was wondering if there is a list of the soundtracks used in the mod somewhere. The only one I could recognise and name is Time from Inception. Brilliant work by the way, this mod is truly beautiful.

My game crashes on startup, seconds after the logo with the name of the mod and the game appears a message pops up saying that an error has caused sins to stop working correctly and it closes.

I downloaded the 3.30 version of the mod and my game's version is 1.82, could this be the reason?

Nvm I fixed it by downloading the most recent version. Awesome mod btw, specially the music, you have a great taste.

But I have another question: How do I use the map designer? I know how to use the vanilla one but this mod makes it look weird. For example when I press the button to show the list of planets I want in a planet group half of the list only says "Stars" and when I try to select one of them it only selects the first one of the list and when I preview the galaxy I can only see one type of the planets that the mod included, is this somekind of bug?

Is there somekind of tutorial for Galaxy Forge? It's quite overwhelming considering is the first time I use it. Looks surprisingly easy but I still feel insecure while using it.

I tried to play this a while ago, however the lack of any detailed and (Proper English) explanation left me hesitant.

Pros:

The New UI was a little confusing at first (Main Menu) However, It has really grown on me.

Beautiful, this mod is by far the most beautiful and so is your website.

Great new ideas and a lot of them are well implemented!

Cons:

Text/English (I know your first language isn't English and it is not a great issue, however it can take some immersion away. (I'm sure the community is willing to help for free!)

A lack of explanation for this mod and what it adds/changes etc, even on your website made it very difficult for me download it in the first place. I like to know exactly what has changed and what to expect, this also ties in with the first issue, lack of English.

Anyway, I'm going to keep on playing and see what I can find.

Cheers

How would you change the features list on the site?

I don't think that description should be too excessive, but what things are missed in your opinion?

cheers

Really, I think that it should be properly structured and the English should be revised.

I only just got the overall meaning of this mod. A lot of things didn't quite make sense.

I think you should ask the fans of this mod to properly correct the English in the mod and on the website. :)

After playing for a while I noticed a few more things that I'd like you to explain to me.

I noticed that I kept getting invaded by a very small group of neutral AI (5-7 ships) they were not hard to defeat at all, however they kept coming in waves every 5 minutes or so, which makes building up a fleet/economy rather difficult when you're constantly having to rush back to your homeworld.

I figured out they were spawning from starbases on worlds close by.. Starbases?! How are we supposed to deal with starbases so early on. I can't colonize the worlds that I need because they have a starbase on them, so I can't research the ships/upgrades to defeat the starbases. It's very difficult and I have to hope each time I load a map that I'm not surrounded by starbases (Which I always am).

Also, the research tree seems to be mixed up, for example.. It takes 4 civ research stations to get 'Cold enviroments' yet it is located there the end of the tree and it is so expensive, making it difficult to colonize considering the cold planets are everywhere.

Finally, the map list needs to be expanded upon I think, I wasn't sure what the (C) (W) stood for, I eventually figured it out. However, certain maps such as 'Rea Cluster (C W)' has me spawn in a star system with only one Planet?! Which means I need to put all my research into Star system travel.

Sorry It's a long chunk of text, I get a little over excited

Hello,

Higher tier colonizing researches are available on lower tier because of AI (it can create hardly prioritized list of researches, that never can be accomplished, resulting in development halt)
Forums.sinsofasolarempire.com

Starting system with one urban planet is standard for Stars :D

If you feel that Invaders are too tough, you can try maps with "Accumulation" or "Cluster" in a title. Those maps have safe start.

map indexes are mentioned on the website
Stars.zz.mu

Hot, Cold, Radioactive planets become colonizable after 45mins in game... so there is no need to hurry

I will add description for invaders

cheers
