Thanks for that hotfix! Love the picture of Gawron, that perfect explains what I looked like trying to find a work around. Is it at possible for you guys to also do a fix for the credit -.1 glitch? Thanks for the quick and helpful support!

As we've explained in multiple videos on my channel and repeatedly in the comments section, it's not a glitch - your ships cost you credits. More ships = more credit drain on your economy. you need to make sure that your economy can support the number of vessels you own. This means that you can't just turtle at your homeworld and build a big fleet. Expand or die :)

If this is not a glitch then your team has not managed to make this change explicitly clear in-game. As far as I know no other Sins mod (or even the base game!) penalizes you in this manner: for your supply-cap-level AND actively takes away credits from you for how many ships you have out on the field.

(Can we get more information on the system, as well? What's the upkeep cost per ship, is it reflected in the UI someplace?)

Thrawn's Revenge: Ascendancy has quite a similar system, so you're zero for one on that commentary when suggesting that no other mod does it. You're correct in thinking that the base game doesn't do it of course, but that's the fun of modding - gives us the opportunity to explore things that the base game doesn't do.

If you take a look at the fleet supply upgrades (you can do so by hovering over them), you're not penalised for credits at all for the first 5 levels when it comes to capacity upgrades. This means in early to mid game your ships are the only drain so you're not penalised twice. Late game, after heavy testing, we allowed some credit cost in there as well.

I'll have a think about including some additional documentation about it in hints and tips or possibly in the tooltip of the fleet upgrades as Caesar's working on a patch to address a couple of issues that we're not satisfied with.

The frigates take 0.5 credits a second overall, the cruisers 1 and the capital ships 2.5 to my memory.

Thanks for the quick reply!

Yeah, looking at the first 5 levels of those fleet supply upgrades they look exactly like they do in the base game. I think that's where the confusion (Mine, others on the forum, and elsewhere) begins. Those first five supply levels say that they increase your metal/crytal upkeep as normal *but they don't*. After that upkeep DOES ding you across the board as you said, though if I was looking at this for the first time I wouldn't have two clues as to what "upkeep" actually means, and I would be very confused as to how that compares to the normal Sins way of indicating upkeep: As a debuff to "(resource) extraction rate". (Even knowing what you were telling me, I had a 'huh?' moment when comparing the tooltips.) (It also reminds me of a tooltip I see on the federation culture research, "Credit-to-sale conversion" or something like that. Nobody I've played with or have asked has been able to tell me or figure out what that actually means. So that generates more confusion as it's such an opaque term)

I would suggest that updating the mod's tooltips to accurately reflect changes would do wonders on reducing player confusion. Maybe I'm preaching to the choir here, but that's something you want to minimize and eliminate at all costs, because a confused player is a frustrated player... And a frustrated player is one that's going to go elsewhere and not give your (honestly amazing) mod a chance.

To that end, you really really really need to shout the 'active' upkeep cost of frigates/cruisers/capital ships from the rooftops to give your community that information. And in an official, easy to find place (your forums seem like the best bet. Finding mentions of it in the comments of a hotfix patch or on your own personal gaming youtube channel isn't something most people are going to find.)

Wow, condescend to your user base much?

Its not even like he was coming at you personally, he had a question about the game you made-- which seemed pretty valid seeing as the mechanic is in fact game breaking on the smaller maps AND of course your "diligence" when it comes to documentation would be considered laughable by any legitimate developer's standards (ie, somone thats not a just a modder of other people's software).

Passing on this crap, if I want to play something thats made by an obstinate douchebag I will just write it myself.

Okay then, thanks Gul, but I still have one question? You may have stated this already and I hate to waste your time but I don't have hours and hours to watch every single Dev log, when does Ages Of The Federation come out? Or like an ETA?

Afraid that I can't give you one bud. We'll certainly have something out this year, but aside from that, I can't give a better estimate. The fact is some weeks we get through a **** ton of work, others we're all busy. If we did this for a day job I could be accurate and give you a really decent projection, but as it is, modding needs to fit around our lives meaning there's no clear and easy way to be sure.

Thanks for the fix, one additional question please:

Is the mod compatible with 1.90 (or 1.91 for that matter) now?

I am still losing the menu screens, and I did all the unzipping and such. I'm running the No Beta version of the game - which version do I need it as in Steam for the multiplayer menu to work with no errors? P.S. Thanks for the mod and the updates - they are great!

OK ALL: I have it, and it now works, but here's the problems I encountered:

Installing: I HAD to use 7zip to extract the files, or it didn't work - I dunno why, it just only worked with that.

Recent Update to version 1.92 for EU privacy update/ No menu's apprearing? When I saw the no menu's appearing, I went into the steam game properties and went back a version to the last one that worked. Then I downloaded the patch and Zzip unzipped it into my MoD 1.85/ folder, did Yes to All, but still no menu's.

I had to go back into my game properties from Steam and change back to the 1.92 version. THEN I had to go to Steam, Properties, LOCAL FILES, VERIFIFY INTEGRITY OF GAME FILES. Do all that and it worked.

Nightmare. Hope this maybe helps a poor soul! Give me a shout if you want to do a multiplayer too! Cheers & Cheers agan to devs - amazing game!

For me, place the file here...

C:\Users\(user name)\Documents\My Games\Ironclad Games\Sins of a Solar Empire Rebellion\Mods-Rebellion v1.85

It's the same place you put the mod initially when you first installed it. Just unzip the file there, overwrite the old one and you're done.

Hope this helps.

I likewise am having the same problem as Pappasmurf1971. Despite putting the hotfix in the spot SoulFire1200 mentioned, the main menu still will not appear. If I find a solution, I will update this post. Looks like this mod has potential though!

EDIT: I ended up putting the hotfix file inside of C:\Users\example\Documents\My Games\Ironclad Games\Sins of a Solar Empire Rebellion\Mods-Rebellion v1.85\STA3_Core_Nemesis\Window. That seems to have done the trick!
