Distant Stars is a collection of changes that Skyline_HUN made to the game to become more enjoyable even on huge maps. He found the research tree too short for a 4x game. So the first thing the MOD does is greatly increase the research levels. Now most of the weapons, shield, armor and HP research have 6-10 levels per-technology each. Now, a technological advantage really becomes major factor in the game. Also he tried to increase the differences between the three races by research. The MOD also increases the differences between the three races by increasing the advantage the research grants.

This actually means, the Trader Emergency Coalition (TEC) have more levels for trade and defense, Advent have more research available in beam weapon technology and fighters/bombers, Vasari can now increase their phase missiles to really pass through shields and have more weaponry research. Some default researches have been tweaked to help improve the the differences between the three races.




In case you didnt know, this mod is still active. But as you can see this site page is not. Please see our forum topic on the Sins of a Solar Empire Modding forum.

Hi basic rundown of changes: are the explosions and damage to ships better and more exaggerated in this mod than the normal game? Ive played your mod and i think it looks better but im new to this game. also can this be run at the same time as the Maelstrom expansion mod?

Like all mods it depends on what you want out of it. If your looking to expand the feel found in non-modded SINS, then this mod may be great for you.

Head over to our main topic on the SoSE fourms.
