Greetings,

Today we release the alpha version of Sins of the Prophets mod for Sins of a Solar Empire Rebellion. This is a special occasion as this release will showcase the mod for the first time in the Rebellion engine as well as the first time we are releasing the Covenant for public use. This is an exciting time for all of us who mod SotP and our sister mods Covenant at War and Halo Homefront. The last year has seen a lot of changes and balance redesigns that were a collaboration to bring the best Halo experience we could while staying true to the canon. Expect to see UNSC and Covenant naval engagements that make the battles from the cut scenes of halo games and the ones described in the book come to life.

Design and Balance changes are a very big thing, this product is almost a different game compared to our entrenchment release due to the engine upgrade as well as new, highly skilled, people who have brought much to changing SotP from just a mod to a total conversion. Flood replace the "Pirates" and should not be thought of as the same. Activating Flood mode in game will turn it from a standard game to more of a horde mode, last man standing gametype. For more on balance changes and where we are headed with the mod check SotP out on our forums. We'd love to explain what we are planning and what brought us to this point.

We at SotP are very excited to be able to bring this mod to you. We would like to remind you that this is still a work in progress and an alpha. We have a lot in the game to offer, but we still have more to do to bring this to completion. That said, we hope you'll join us on our forums or here on our moddb page. Check out our sister mods as well as many of our assets and ideas have been influenced by them as well.

From all the playtesters, Devs, and the SotP community we hope you enjoy our game and we hope to see you starside.

-Dianno5741: Lead Designer SotP

Covenant content brought to you by a mutual partnership with the Homeworld 2 mod Homefront and the Empire at War mod Covenant at War.

Is it ok to review or is it not appropriate yet because you have released an alpha

You can always review an alpha - Just account for the fact that it's actually an alpha and not the full version.

I would like to ask what the deal is with the ship called Mother of invention it is a Paris class ship with beefed up stats such as 1000% percent chance of dogding and it does 300 mac damage.

Red versus Blue. Start a new map if you don't like the Easter Egg. :P

Just had some matches, very unusual play type. it doesnt feel like sins with a halo skin on it. Compliment btw.

Only thing that bugs me is that you can hardly see the models, I really want to see them clearly coz they are gorge, Everything is so dark and one side of the ships is almost blacked out, depending on the star.

Yeah, that's a known issue. It mainly involves bad shaders on the old models - The newer ones look better.

I am enjoying the new fully automatic MAC guns on Mako corvettes! :P

Really though, are they supposed to have a multi-shot MAC gun? If I do recall, there were small MAC guns for point defense on the Infinity, but were these on the Mako aswell? Of course, I could be completely wrong, so please fell free to put me in my place!

I like it but also ships die way to easily, spose im just used to normal sins but are they spose to be this fragile in your mod?

Hard one to judge really, I think it makes you focus and think a lot more about what your doing with your ships, rather than just build and zerg. The tension is fantastic when your desperately trying to get reinforcements to a location which it's beseiged.

some bug problems that i have found: Convenent dont have phase inhib research. Plus their space station research is a little off with wrong links for research. For the UNSC their space station is a little glitchy. If there could be legit phase node research or something to make the anchor stations a phase node that would suit the purpose.
Other than that great mod guys. I love the flood aspect. You guys really found something special there. Keep up the great work!
