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.

Make sure you have the minimods enabled ABOVE the E4X and Interregnum main mods, as pictured in the preview image. If they are below them they won't work.

Also keep in mind that while the Superweapons will still show up in your tactical structures, the research for them is removed, so no one can actually build them.

I installed these, made sure they were in the right order, and now I get a minidump whenever the game starts up.

You are using the latest version of E4X/Interregnum and these minimods right? I've heard some people say this happens if you say use the old version of the minimods with the current version of the mod.

Also, what DLCs do you have? The method I used for disable superweapons should work for all of them, but it does involve some of the same code as DLC content, and I obviously can't remove my DLC to test if it works for those without it.

I'm Sorry for a very late answer, the MiniDump now is gone (YEAH!), but the superweapons is still problematic, anyway i got both DLCs, and i'm not using the Interregnum

And also the latest version of the E4X and the minimods.

Hmm, I too have both DLCs so that shouldn't be an issue. I'll try it with just E4X.

Curiously, I have Non-Vasari Phase Gates and Resetting Titan Levels, even though I didn't enable either of those addons. Deathmatch works fine, but No Superweapons doesn't, even though it's enabled.

Just a question, for the enhanced research mod why can we research the next stacked subject w/ out researching all 4? Do we even have to research all 4 before we get the bonus? Because the next one starts at the max for the previous... like the Trader Laser Amplification, if we research two levels of that plus 4 levels of High Intensity Lasers, will we get the maximum percentage increase?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

No. As the mod says, it simply double research. It does not change the research prerequisites (I.e. 2 of a research in most cases). This is because some factions, like the Advent, need more techs to get some of their key ships. If I made it so you had to completely finish the previous research before going on to the next, it would say increase the number of shield techs needed to get the Guardian from 3 to 6, while other factions can get their ships without any extra research.

So short answer, the mod is only designed to give you more stuff research, not make any particular tech harder to get, which is what changing the prereqs would do.

Wanted to chime in, I'm getting the superweapons still buildable as well. Dl'ed the mod v174 and the optional mods, also v174 about two days ago. Was playing a 1v1 game, TEC vs normal random VIR, and all of a sudden I start getting superweapon firing messages, followed by my planet is being attacked.
Order of mods I have active from top to bottom is E4X Expanded Research, E4X No Superweapons, E4x non-Vasari Phase Gate, E4X Resetting Titan Levels and then Enhanced 4X Mod 1.74

I've started a new game as Orthadox Advent with 5 random opponents, I'll let you know either way on the superweapons.

Hi, GoaFan.

Been checking out the frankly awesome units for the Interregnum mod and getting quite excited for it all, considering I've only so far played vanilla Rebellion :).

I do have a question/feature request for these minimods you've released; is it possible, instead of having all or none of the superweapons, we could have it where their use is severely restricted? I'm thinking a minimum of 1 per player and so many per x number of planets occupied (say 10) and a additional cannon with 10 or say 15 more planets beyond that initial number. Just a thought, might make them used more tactically :)

That's actually more or less what the default game uses. You can build 1 superweapon for every 4 planets you control (except for the TEC, they get a tech that doubles this number).

If you just want this system to be more restrictive, its quite easy to change yourself. Find the Gameplay.Constants of the mod that's highest in your mod order (not all of them may have this file). Near the top you'll see these lines.

cannonsPerGravityWellRatio 1
cannonGravityWellRatioDenominator 4

Increasing the denominator will force you to own more planets before you can build another superweapon.

Thanks for getting back to me so quickly mate, appreciate that.

Didn't know about that little snippet of info, that's an interesting one.

Yeah I've seen that in someone else's post elsewhere as a solution and while I think I just couldn't (as simple as it is now that you describe it that way) properly figure out the mechanics of changing it it was also annoying as apparently it resets every day..

Oh well, I'll just have to remember to change it each time!

Thanks again.

Uh, it shouldn't reset every day. If you save the file, it should use that version so long as you keep using that mod.

Probably not unless moddb adds a wiki feature. :p I love wikis and I've been an administrator on one before, but I'm not sure if its worth the time to set one up, since very few people seem to contribute to Wikis about mods.
