Sins of a Solar Empire is often described as a 4XRTS game, or a game that tried to merge the action and tactics packed gameplay of a Real time strategy game with the deep, complex, empire wide strategy of a 4X turn based game. It's up to debate whether Sins succeeded in this goal, but I think all can agree that of the 4Xs of "explore, expand, exploit, and exterminate", Sins is much more focused on the exterminate than on the others. This mod seeks to give more depth to the other 3Xs of the game by adding additional game elements or refining the existing ones to reward players who give more strategic thought to the non-combat side of the game. Combat will still be the center point of the game, but players will find that the non-combat options available will be much more rewarding. Spying, exploring, sabotage, diplomacy, culture, and economic development have all been added or changed in innovative new ways. Regardless of what you think Sins is, this is the 4XRTS it should have been.

Thanks a lot for a great tool. I have one question. What exactly is the CyberFortress? I added it to a game and it appears to be a heavily guarded invulnerable planet similar to the occupation planet. Is it possible to gain control of it? I haven't gotten far enough into a game to test it yet.

Yes. It is a rare "boss" planet that you have a small chance to find in random maps with E4X.

I need some help, upon trying to load a custom map it just keeps auto loosing. Not sure what I'm doing. Maps just arent' showing up. :(

I have no idea what i'm doing wrong.

Sorry for the delay, but usually auto losing or winning on custom maps is because you have a player that was not assigned any planets to own.
