FINAL TSOP in Work.

News 3 comments

I said before that i would not make another TSOP.... I LIED!

I am now working on TSOP 1.0. Which will be the FINAL version. TSOP will be updated to work with the latest (and more than likely final) patch updates of All versions of Sins of a Solar Empire. Including Rebellion, and the DLC's

TSOP 1.0 will include all of the fixes, and optimizations of version 0.07 plus..

(All Sins Versions) TSOP 1.0 will be updated to the latest versions of Sins, and all of its Expansions (Including Rebellion).

(All Sins Versions)
The User Interface is completely overhauled to use pure DDS format.

(All Sins Versions) Trade Ships, Strike Craft, Mines, and Constructor Unit Meshes, and Textures are now Optimized (helps with the late game lag issue).

(Entrenchment, and Diplomacy) Starbase Textures are optimized mimicking the Stardock vanilla Rebellion Optimizations.

(All Versions) Sounds, and Music are optimized.

(All Sins Versions) All TGA format Textures are replaced with DDS format, and TSOP "force" loads them. The only TGA textures that remain are the Mouse Cursers, and Scenario Pictures. This is due to hard code in the EXE.

(All Sins Versions) "Strategic Texture Reductions" for the Particles return using newer methods to create a better looking textures.

(Original Sins, and Entrenchment) Many Mesh Null issues, and various File Errors were corrected, and Unnecessary Text Entry's were removed in both the Mesh, and Particle files. Entry's pointing to Non Existent Textures in both the mesh, and particle files removed. See the various "Fixed Files" texts in the mods Read Me for details.

(Original Sins, and Entrenchment) The Diplomacy 1.3 graphic fix's have been incorporated into the Original Sins, and Entrenchment versions of TSOP (Pipeline Effects, "White Line" error fix, and Corrected Mesh files).

(Trinity) TSOP 1.0 for Trinity will see the return of Optimized Planets using the planet meshes from Rebellion! but with our Optimized Original Sins Textures!

Plus what other issues i find during the update process will be fixed.

I already finished the Original Sins, and Entrenchment versions of TSOP 1.0. I am currently in work on the Diplomacy, and Rebellion versions. Which shouldnt take long, because there really is not much left to optimize there, but it doesn't hurt to optimize them "just a little bit more" ;)

TSOP 0.07 is still hosted here, and it still works with the latest versions of Trinity (Original Sins, Entrenchment, and Diplomacy), but will not work with Rebellion. However if you use 0.07 you will be playing the game as if the game was patched to an older version of Sins.

TSOP for Rebellion is DEAD,... but.....

TSOP for Trinity (Original Sins, Entrenchment, and Diplomacy) is still very much alive, and kicking.

I can't seem to make STA3 work. I installed your mod but it still crashes.

That is because TSOP will not work with STA3. There is no version of TSOP that works with Rebellion at the moment. Right now only Original Sins, and Entrenchment is supported. That is because Stardock pretty much fixed all of the issues that plagued those 2 games with the latest Diplomacy patch, and they incorporated much of TSOP into Rebellion. Which is why there hasnt been a new version of TSOP for Rebellion. It is really not needed.

Any update on this?

No not at the moment. I am still evaluating the need for TSOP for Rebellion. Stardock incorporated their own optimizations using TSOP as a guide when they made Rebellion. So there really is no need. Vanilla Rebellion runs at 1.7 gigs at max everything on my laptop. The only lag i get is the usual late game lag which nothing can be done about (unless someone converts this to 64 bit, and multicore CPU).

As you can see i updated TSOP for Original Sins, and Entrenchment to work on the latest patch updates for Sins.

TSOP 1.0 will be the FINAL version of TSOP that i make. Work is in progress for the Diplomacy, and Rebellion plus DLC versions. Despite the fact that Diplomacy, and Rebellion do not need TSOP. A "Little More Optimization" can't hurt ;) No ETA yet. All i can say is "soon".

TSOP 0.07 is still hosted here, because i can not delete them! If you have the versions of sins they were created for then go ahead and use them. The old Rebellion TSOP DOES NOT work. Again i cant delete it, and i dont know why.

Can this mod be used with other sins mods or is this to only play regular sins?

It is only to play sins. If you enable it with other mods there may be errors. Which is why i left all of the gameinfo files in text so that other mod teams could incorporate all of the changes.

Would be nice if you updated the icons to work with Forbidden Worlds and Stellar Phenomena.
