The Maelstrom Mod introduces four new races to the Sins of a Solar Empire Universe. They are independent of the original races and have unique strengths and weaknesses. Maelstrom is available Rebellion, Diplomacy, Entrenchment and Original Sins.
First off I would like to say that this mod excellent and well done for simple reasons: 1)Creativity that keeps its followers asking for more. 2) A long standing and dedication to keeping it "new" and up to date. 3) Their consideration for their followers and their choice of Sins. The mod Maelstrom is designed very nicely and runs smoothly. The creators of this mod were very detail oriented by creating their own teed bit of lore from the existing Sins and by making numerous and various stars, planets, ships, and structures for the mod. Each though has similar inspirations from sci-fi shows and stories that we know and love such as Battlestar Galactica, Farscape, and A Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, just to name a few. Even though in the beginning they used exact ships to start off, they have gone to great lengths to create unique designs of their own as time passed. Each time though when a change is made they create beautiful models making sure to enhance the visual aspects that is the current focus phenomenal. As item comes along it is tested and given characteristics to make it useful and interesting in its own little ways. When that is done they do their best to play test and weed out the bugs right away it seems. Even though few updates happen for Sins there is something here say every few weeks so something can be laid, hatched and grow into a fantastic concept that eventually reaches game play for all. As most groups want to do is have everything ready, these guys want it all ready upon release so when you get it. You have it all. At least for the time being. It helps that the Moddb community is very supporting and provides feedback a lot. These guys are very nice for keeping it up to date for each part of Sins and for making this mod. I appreciate all of the people who their time into making such outstanding mods for all such as Maelstrom and I thank God that that they are here because they help make gaming more fun. Best wishes and enjoy.
