  • Buffed LRF DPS
  • Rebalanced pirate ship access to plunder tree and reduced research pre-requisites
  • Rebalanced mercenary ships LRF, Carrier and Heavy down 1 tier
  • Rebalanced Economy allows -80% population control to be slowly lifted as new orbital modules are built. Up to 60% can be lifted by building extractors, frigate factory, culture center, trade port and refinery. 20% can be lifted by building a capital ship factory or starbase (does not stack).

  • Fixed texture on rogue fighter

  • Plague: Changes minShadow to reflect new data texture maps.

Artifacts

  • Artifact research re-balanced. Idea is all planets will support at minimum a low level artifact with some planets having access to higher level artifacts. The idea of artifacts is more about planet exploration now that may provide useful materials that improve your empire or possible alien relics that are less common.
    • Asteroids - Improve weapon damage/range
    • Ice - Improve AM reserves/regen
    • Desert - Improve culture/allegiance
    • Terran - Improve trade
    • DeadAsteroid - Improve bombing survivability
  • Adds new artifact that will only be present on starting home worlds (Origin Artifact). Controlling an origin homeworld grants a small increase to trade, ship build rate, module build rate, tax rate, culture spread and allegiance. Losing the home world loses access to these bonuses.
  • Adds new artifact Pirate King. Conquer and colonize a pirate planet to become a pirate king. Pirate kings can summon pirates to their cause (via ability on frigate factories currently).

AI Improvements

  • Research: Hidden AI research access added which will prompt the AI to research Durability and Weapon upgrades.
  • Star Base: An extra AI Only accessible Weapon upgrade added. This upgrade allows the AI to field more formidable Star Bases overtime.
  • Income improvements for AI are still handled by difficulty level.
  • Some abilities AM has been normalized to allow the AI to more effectively use all abilities.
  • Some targetting conditions changed to keep AI from wasting AM on inconsequential targets (for example: Nano Dissembler will only auto target Capital Ships or Star bases, micro will be required to target frigates).

Random Encounters

  • Vasari Pirate Patrol: A small patrol of Vasari ships are dispatched to an ionic storm after their crystal shipments start disappearing, with orders to retake the extractors and eliminate the pirate forces they find.
  • TEC Training Exercise: A newly formed TEC task force is practicing maneuvers in an isolated Asteroid field. While inexperienced, they will seek to protect their training grounds from any intruders.
  • Advent Exploration Force: A powerful psionic has sensed a disturbance at this seemingly barren asteroid, leading to a small exploration group to be sent to investigate.
  • TEC Mining Colony: This TEC mining company was forced out of its home market by bribes from a competitor, forcing it to sell its assets and charter a ship to take them into deep space to begin again on this Volcanic planet. While the miners have managed to fortify this planet more than others in the system, their mining skills may prove useful if you can take the planet for yourself.
  • Vasari Military Outpost: This ice planet hosts a large Vasari military development and supply base. In addition to linking the planet to the Vasari phase network and developing new weapons, several overseers and phase jump inhibitors have been deployed in an attempt to slow down the advancing unknown Vasari enemy. The extra military infrastructure on this planet makes it ideal for your own defensive outpost should you manage to take it from the Vasari central command.
  • Advent Promise Land: Discovery of a powerful hallucinogenic spice on this desert world has lead to a massive advent colonization effort. Several trade ports have been built to export the prized substance to share with the rest of the unity, and a powerful psionic has taken residence at the planet to further develop her powers. A few proselytizers have even declared this the successor to the original Advent home world, and are keen on spreading the unity throughout the system. While difficult to take, the spice on this planet will prove to be a valuable boost to your own trade network should you be successful.
  • Civilian City Port: A hub of commerce surrounds this planet.

Other

  • Removed unnecessary pji, cannon shell and effect mesh copies to avoid mesh count upper limit
  • Various fixes to finish conditions on Abilities/Buffs

  • Adds quick start template for all factions

  • Fixed erroneous research levels on various research subjects
  • Flagships: Support capitals removed from random flagship selection. Colony as 2/5 chance to spawn
  • Moons: Moons may spawn at Terrans, Desert, Gas Giant, Volcanic and Ice. Multiple moons may spawn at Terrans and Gas Giants. Moons spawned at neutral worlds are captured via colonizers. Moons are automatically converted to star bases once captured.
  • Moons: No longer start with weapons. Reduced to missiles only with second level upgrade increasing weapon damage.
  • Moons: Can only be captured by colony frigates (no scouts!).
  • Moons: May now appeared on uncolonized gravity wells. Terrans, Deserts and GasGiants may spawn more than one moon.

Maybe this has been asked before but, any plans on expanding to Rebellion when it's released?

Yes, I have general plans to move to rebellion. I've been watching/playing the Beta and analyzing the new changes they've put in. I just don't have any set goals yet on what I want to do with Rebellion. Working on getting the Diplomacy release as complete as I can at the moment.

Okay nice to hear that, I've just been playing the beta with my friend and I kinda like it. The Titan really are titans, they are a force to be reckoned with. And Somehow it seems less laggy at some points and not so heavy on my computer as original sins and the expansions. But take your time, I've yet to explore the whole beta, so I reaaaaally don't need anything more to play right now than Rebellion, Diablo III and E.Y.E Divine Cybermancy.

I agree... I've been playing the Rebellion Beta too. Other than breaking down the new modding capabilities into my Eclipse tool, I'm not real interested in modding it yet. I'd rather have some fun with it and let things settle in a bit. There's always time to mod rebellion later this year.

The focus right now is getting what I have done as polished as I can for Diplomacy. I'm not adding any more new features, so the emphasis is on getting this as close to done as I can for a mod. I've already made a couple tweaks internally based on some feedback from this release.

If you do decide to add this to Rebellion, would you split the custom races into two factions each like the base game, or keep them the same?

I'm no modder so i don't know how much effort it would take to do that, although I imagine making 2 custom titans for each custom race would be very time consuming.

I won't be splitting my factions up into Rebel/Loyalists. I will be adding Titans and corvettes though to balance out with the current factions. And your dead on with the time consuming part. I'll do good to get a respectable titan mesh for each faction.
