About

Sins of the Prophets is a total conversion mod for Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion which replaces models, effects, music and all other assets with those of the Halo universe. SotP recreates Halo's iconic and brutal space combat in its full visual glory across a galactic battlefield.

Fight as the UNSC in a desperate struggle for survival and the defense of your colonies, or annihilate as the Covenant while leading immense fleets through vast swaths of space; glassing any planets in your way.

SotP brings with it a solid, balanced, and engaging universe for players to explore; for both competitive play, and for those seeking the Halo lore they crave. SotP provides a gameplay experience suited for every type of play.

Sins of the Prophets (SotP) is a total conversion mod for the PC game Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion that transforms the game into a Halo-themed experience. It's a real-time space strategy game, focused on empire building, and space combat. Huge fleets of ships clash in the gravity wells of planets, asteroid fields, and massive structures. Our mod redresses all of that in Halo garb. In a match of SotP you could defend Reach from the Fleet of Particular Justice, discover a massive Forerunner structure that gives you advanced technology, then amass a giant space empire, only to lose it all to the Flood. The skirmish style of the game allows for some of Halo's sandbox appeal to translate well into the mod. The space combat is brutal and fast - an element of the Halo story covered well in the books, but hasn't yet been fully realized in a game or film.

It has been over a year since the release of v0.90 Warlords, and what a year it has been. In the span of time since that last update quite a lot has happened, all during an ongoing pandemic, and we would like to finally delve more publicly into what we have been up to! You may have already noticed the new addition to our title, it’s quite a specific number. To finally break our silence, that leap is the reason why things are taking a little longer to announce the next big update.

Sins of the Prophets 2 Logo

In case you missed it...


We have been building up to a v1.0 release for a long time now, but what that “finished'' version looked like eventually evolved into something beyond our original vision. That vision, and our team, have grown through the years, and it’s been a long twelve years. During that period the project changed hands several times, and the game that we’re working on top of has drastically changed. Before we even released Warlords we were in the process of taking a hard look back at the design decisions that had led us to that point. What we saw during that retrospective wasn’t as cohesive as we had wished it to be, but it gave us a moment of clarity for how to move forward towards something even better.


The Big 2

Sins of the Prophets 2 is a sequel, but it’s also us fulfilling a promise to deliver something greater than what has come before. Our prior releases have been built upon over a decade of legacy code, which has in some ways hampered performance across previous versions. The decision was made to start from scratch immediately after we had Warlords released and stable, and to approach every design choice from a fresh perspective. This has allowed us to create an error free build, rethink formerly daunting problems, and plan a consistent direction for a truly massive release.


So, what’s changing?

Literally everything is being tweaked or redone, ranging from overall balance to art. Let’s take a little dive into some of these changes:

Graphics

One of the biggest visual changes that has occurred is our teams adoption of the excellent shader work being done by the Sins Remastered team. Their new shaders convert Sins into a PBR (physically-based rendering) compatible game, which means some amazing things for the graphics. The shaders now support a ton of new modern rendering techniques, and allow us to push more detail rich materials. Not to overstate it, but when you see it in action you’ll hardly believe you’re playing the same game.


New UI

A completely brand new design of the interface has been built from the ground up, with more intuitive layouts, and a big focus on improved user experience. Every detail has been thought out to ensure the best possible usability, while modernizing the presentation. We’ve created a fresh and interpretable set of menus so that new and old players alike will be able to acclimate to any new changes in gameplay they might encounter. Likewise, a serious effort has been made to craft a UI that is just as detailed and satisfying to look at as everything it encapsulates, because it’s the core of how you, as the player, interact with the game.


Work in Progress UI Preview


Sound Effects

Something that cannot be underestimated is the need for excellent sound design, which helps to capture the sense and massive breadth of the battles possible in Sins of a Solar Empire. We have gone in a completely new direction regarding our soundscape, with the help of some excellent new sound designers. We’re not making only the visuals epic, but also providing an awesome listening experience as well. Every sound is in the process of being redone, and remastered to fill your speakers with something definitive and accurate to the scale.


Gameplay Features

Every aspect of both the existing factions is being reviewed to make new design choices, that lead to a balanced foundation to build off of for future expansions. Among the changes come new mechanics that opens the door to better boarding actions, and influence the way planetary invasions work. We will be talking more about these mechanics in the future, as we detail out the overall changes to each faction in their own articles later.


The Future

It’s been a long night of silence, but moving forward we will be keeping you all updated about the changes coming with Sins of the Prophets 2. We’re excited for what the future holds for both SotP and Halo as a whole - and we here at Chokepoint are working hard to create the best space-combat experience Halo has to offer. There’s a lot more to show, and we’re eager for you to see it!

Love the mod, I played it for the first time yesterday as the UNSC on a small map. I got absolutely demolished by the Flood.

You should fix the next issue;

When you are playing in a single player game, and the game begins, the IA's factions start with all research skills completed, which puts you at a disadvantage because their ships have more damage and armor than yours from the start. Hope you can read me and understanding me.

i don't know if anyone already notice this, there is some hidden(?) little detail in some UNSC warships, they can be found on Orion Class Assault Carrier and Phoenix Class Support Vessel.

Orion Class - one of the developer face(?)

Phoenix Class - "Spirit Of Fire" nameplate

also back then i remember in version 0.8x(i guess), i can see a wreck of an UNSC warships floating on a Gas Giant, Vepiridae (it's so small, a little bit hard to find, like a black dot but if you zoom enough to it, you can see the wreck). i think its a reference to Admiral Cole's warships, UNSC Everest.

The face on the Orion is Sparth, Art Director at 343 Industries.

The red Spartan emblem is the logo for now defunct Spartan Games, the company that did the Halo: Fleet Battles tabletop game.

It's always fun to see when people discover our little easter eggs.

The red spartan emblem is present on a couple of other ships, the Valiant-class for example. I'm not sure what the significance is for it.

The Brown Dwarf wreckage easter egg can still be found in the current version. While part of its presence is a reference to Cole's last stand, it also honours the late voice actor for the Valiant-class as well.

Hey everyone, the lovely folks at the Star Trek Armada 3 mod directed me here. I was hoping that the individual who did the CSS here would be willing to maybe teach or make a custom page for me and my group?

Cheers.

Looking forward to the next big update, can't wait! Also, do you guys plan on bringing back the Eion-Class Light Carrier as a playable unit(with updated model, of course), if so I'd like to see it added as an unit exclusive to Admiral Stanforth, since Cole gets the Noryang and Hood has the Athens as "Support" ships, while Stanforth lacks a light carrier "Support" unit, leaving him as the odd man out, so it'd be cool if he gets the Eion to fill that gap. Just a suggestion. Peace! ✌

Build a lot of ships. Rockets are your best bet. Try some carrier tactics. 4 UNSC = 1 Covenant on easy. Lure the enemy into your deffence ring and starbase ranges... etc..
