RELEASE: Sol: A History Reborn
Sol: A History Reborn

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.

S:AH offers you 40+ action packed missions.  This new release has been updated and rebalanced to use Nyctaeus's new collection of EA assets for Inferno: Nostos.  Additionally Sol: A history is now fully voice acted.  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!

If a man consults whether he is to fight, when he has the power in his own hands, it is certain that his opinion is against fighting.

TBF, it's mostly TTS but often sounds surprisingly good :P.

I decided to give it a whirl.  I see what you mean by the TTS, but it's better than nothing.  I did notice however, that EAC1-A7 is missing any "voice acted" debriefing.
