Admiral Nelson:
Sol: A History


--- Quote from: General Battuta on April 25, 2012, 06:41:57 pm ---Sol: A History: A prequel to Inferno, Blaise Russel's historical epic follows the political turmoil in Sol after its isolation from the colonies. Lengthy and challenging, S:AH is a major work by one of the community's most successful designers.
--- End quote ---

S:AH offers you 40+ action packed missions.  This new release has been updated and rebalanced to use assets from Inferno: Nostos as well as from Inferno Alliance and Inferno Alliance Standalone.  Additionally, enemy factions now get their own unique shipsets, instead of just FS1 vessels.  As with anything Inferno related, S:AH is now packed with never before seen models, skyboxes, cbanims and more!  You've flown for the GTVA in Nostos, now try the other side!

4) SCREENSHOTS








PIe:
Just a quick note for Knossos users who already had S:AH installed that due to upload problems, this is a different mod from the version previously available (and now deleted).  It is not an update so you must download it separately.

mr.WHO:
Great news. Sol:A History was one of my favorite campaigns.

Firesteel:
Woah, congrats! It looks amazing!

mr.WHO:
When I try to check some new model in tech romm via "ctrl-shift-S" many of the new models crash the game:
