It does?
Awesome. Time to re-download it then!

Re: Sins of a Solar Empire FreeSpace Mod Project
Go for it. Forums for that mod are LITERALLY dead, all the posts have expired and the admin is GONE.
I shat all over that Shivan fighter....right up 'till his buddy got me.

 
Re: Sins of a Solar Empire FreeSpace Mod Project
:(
I had so much fun playing this a year ago...I was hoping too see it come to full force!

Oh well.

It's a very fun mod, though. It captures the Freespace vibe perfectly, I think. Still, nothing like swarming a typhoon or demon with 100+ Apollo and Hercules fighters. :D

It even has the great Freespace music!
Fun while it lasted.

Then bitter.

Do you know if this breaks entrenchment?  I guess I could just try and see what happens.

Re: Sins of a Solar Empire FreeSpace Mod Project
Have not yet tried, been tied up with other projects.

no, you just can't play it on entrenchment (unless that is what you mean.) I played it a few months back on the vanillia SoaSE a while back, though, and it worked beautifully.
Fun while it lasted.

Re: Sins of a Solar Empire FreeSpace Mod Project
haha, I love this concept.  I was already naming my Sins capships after FS capships sometimes.  I mean, how can you NOT name a shiny new space carrier/destroyer under your command "Galatae" after playing FS1&2 for half of your life? :D

Re: Sins of a Solar Empire FreeSpace Mod Project
I hope you named it "Galatea" instead of the incorrect "Galatae." :p

 
Re: Sins of a Solar Empire FreeSpace Mod Project
Galatae, lol
Anyway, my SoaSE isn't recognizing the mod directory (or at least any mods in it) as none appear in the mods list. Any idea why?

yarg, force of habit for "ae", good type-o catch.

It was great when I had the Galatea, Bastion, and Aquitaine all in one fleet... glorious.

Re: Sins of a Solar Empire FreeSpace Mod Project
Forums still dead.....Probably not going to be a FS2 mod for SoaSE. Darnit

Re: Sins of a Solar Empire FreeSpace Mod Project
Well, whatever is released is still in perfectly working condition.

Re: Sins of a Solar Empire FreeSpace Mod Project
I have bad news and really good news.

Bad news is the Freespace 1 mod is dead, dead, dead.

Really good news is the team has moved on to a Freespace 2 mod for Sins, and so far they have Aeolus and Perseus in game, and they look sweet.  Plus they were probably able to port over their existing models fairly easily.

Don't mind the Universe at War bit, as that's what the team leader was working on before moving to Sins.

17:37:11   SpardaSon21: even the males?
17:37:22   Quanto: its not gay if its an elf

[21:51] <@Droid803> I now realize
[21:51] <@Droid803> this will be SLIIIIIGHTLY awkward
[21:51] <@Droid803> as this rich psychic girl will now be tsundere for a loli.
[21:51] <@Droid803> OH WELLL.

[07:57:32] <Caiaphas> inspired by HerraTohtori i built a supermaneuverable plane in ksp
[07:57:43] <Caiaphas> i just killed my pilots with a high-g maneuver
[07:58:19] <Caiaphas> apparently people can't take 20 gees for 5 continuous seconds
[08:00:11] <Caiaphas> the plane however performed admirably, and only crashed because it no longer had any guidance systems

Re: Sins of a Solar Empire FreeSpace Mod Project
Seriously, you guys just need to track it on ModDB.  That's what I did, and that's what lets me know when they have some new eyecandy.
