Wow!!! Thanks very much for this! I have been waiting a long time for a new version! is this the full version with the dreadnoughts and pirates or the lite combatible with 1.85?

This is what I call the standard version.
The expansion version will have the dreadnoughts and pirates.
On a positive note I am working on the expansion version as we speak.

One of the surprising additions to the 1.85 patch was improved memory management for mods. I have been running this mod with all effects set at the highest ... with a peak RAM usage of 1.5 GB ... I am impressed!!! As a result I have been considering adding more races as I now have RAM to spare.

Yeah!!! Finally =)

I'm waiting for your expansion version =D

with additional space, can add more races!!! I wanna see a race that is organic based fleet ^^

Cause we got a synthetic race (Replicators), we can actually adding a race which is Zerg / Tyrainds / Xenomorph theme - organic race =P

One of the first things I will try is to use the current game assets ... possibly combining one or more races

hmm.. hard to imagine that.. because in my mind the organic fleet is well.. organic =P

just like how Zerg Leviathan do.. shooting out bio-spore towards enemy, spew out bio-matter when damaged.. research mainly is towards adaption.

But I can see what you mean.. ^^
maybe start from a half-bio races - infested races, combine current game assets, with some additional infested texture..

after you satisfied with the current infested race, you can start on the bio-race.

of course, this is my suggestion.. :)

I was not thinking about an organic race ... just combining say some of the original races ... like a advent/TEC combine, combining the best of ships, abilities and research. This would be quick and relatively interesting ... with a low RAM footprint.

So you are well ahead of me ...

I am not familiar with organic races ... have you any specific ideas?

for this i can't guarantee provide a solid ideas..

among the Sins games i played, the races that is organic based are:
- flood (from Sins of the Prophets)
- plague (from Sins of the Fallen)

Maybe you can seek their advice on making a half-organic (infested) / full-organic race.

As for my idea, the capital ships and cruiser can have at least look bug like (much like Zerg). A giant Zerg Leviathan like monstrosity as the starbase. They shoot organic matter, acid bite as projectile towards enemy, instead of fire, they spew blood when damaged.

I had a quick look at models I can use from online sources ... but with credit to designer of course ... and some of the Babylon 5 races have organic looks to their ships ( Foundation3d.com ).
I can not justify the time in creating new models and textures!

Unfortunately with regards to the weapons I could make particle effects as per your suggestion but I can not make new weapons classes without changing the description/stats display for other weapons used by the base races. So it defeats the purpose.

haha.. nevermind about that :)

you can start as half-bio forces - Infested race. Using each races 1 capital ship, then adding texture to resemble it been infested.

For full-bio race, you can think about it later.

With this knowledge, you can learn how to make full-bio race, while giving us 2 races (Infested and full-bio) at same time :)

Interesting, but ...
An organic race does not necessary mean it is somehow infected ... or am I missing something?
Also another alternative race would be a crystalline race. I was personally more inclined on a energy race ... like the pure intellectuals in the Skylark series ... would make a good Ancients race, a race that has moved from the 'material plane' of existence to another higher state of existence.

Irrespective my development path will be to work on the expansion version first. Then combining the original races to make a new hybrid race/s. Then I will consider 'completely new' race/s.

nah.. you didn't miss something.. just mean that I really like infested / bio race.. possibly due to Starcraft 2 :P

Crystalline race.. now that's an interesting race.. :)

Anyway just finish your expansion, cause I really eager to have it download :P
Then continue on other ideas :)

what he means is a race that mainly use ram attack to dealt damage.. (just like your asteroids do)

You can go to Battlefleet Gothic Armada to see this kind of attack.

If you want to disable superweapons open the file GameInfo\Gameplay.constants in a text editor and change cannonsPerGravityWellRatio from 1 to 0 (line number 17).

So does this mean that the rampant militia feature is now in the mod too, or is this mostly a patch to just make it work with the most recent version? Still great news! Kinda thought this was dead, no updates in a while lol

Yes the mod is patch specific ... you need to update Sins to the 1.85 (latest) patch for it to work

I also had this problem, occasionally, which was very frustrating. An update of my AMD graphics card driver fixed the problem.

The Rebellion patch must match the Maelstrom patch version.
Also with unzip tools, they can create sub-folders when unzipping the downloaded mod. Make sure you copy the primary folder which contains the mod.

the 1;85 does not run and when i start the first one the game does not work ( crash )

From what you said, it crashes because you have the wrong version (i.e the Rebellion patch must match the Maelstrom patch version)

The folder where mods v1.85 are 'installed' (by default) is ...
Mods-Rebellion v1.85
Unzipping this version of maelstrom creates a folder called ...
Maelstrom Rebellion R10
In this folder you should have the following sub-folders ...
Galaxy
Galaxy Forge
GameInfo
Mesh
... etc
