hi how are you.A question for you.Do you guy's plan to add new factions to Maelstrom like your own design or bring them in from other Sifi universes to spice up the gameplay?

Sins (32 bit program) has several hardcoded limits ... number of textures, number of meshes, number of sounds, etc. Maelstrom hit those limits a number of years ago with the addition of the seventh race (Pirates Race).

Did the Pirate race's corvette movement thing get fixed in this version? That's bugged the hell out of me since forever.

Not completely new. Doing some marketing (updating website here), and will be adding a new release soon.

Same, though I have no idea how he's gonna fit more into this mod without breaking sins

Too true ... next release will add new planets and maps ... because Sins no longer has memory crashes with 1GB limits

ooh nice, I was just confused about the Halo images. Didn't think you could add whole new factions without hitting the 3 or 4gb RAM cap
