Happy Birthday 7DS
by the sounds of things, 2.5 (or the next full update) will be on Entrenchment?
i also believe you said something about "changing the way that SINS is played" danman. care to elaborate?
YES, 7DS 2.5 will be for Entrenchment. There are too many modding possibilites for me to ignore.
"Changing Sins" will be left up to my new Galactic Sins mod, which will be a standalonne and merged into 7DS if it is accepted well. What this does is change what determines a galaxy. Right now, a galaxy is just one star. I tried to fix this description with my Rogue Stars (as I call them, since this has now been copied in other mods). Galactic Sins is the next evolution of Solar Sins. I intend to make each planet as it stands now, and actual solar system, so that many solar systems will make up an actual galaxy, then you can really have more than one galaxy, not just a star system. The gravity wells will be huge, and going to phase space will only occur when traveling to another star system, not another planet. Also, with the right firepower (Avatar, Death Star) you can actually blow up a planet. Due to hardcoding, you will actually colonze the central star as a station, but then the planets will give your "station colony" all the bonuses of their respective planet types, and if those planets are destroyed, then those bonuses are lost. If all the planets are lost, then only a few asteroids and moons will be left to live on. That is Galactic Sins in a nutshell.
Quoting Whitetooth_the_Terrible, reply 25OMG this mod is amazing Danman, i just downloaded 2.1 and am completely blown away. I Started a game as the Empire and as soon I finished my Venator class star destroyer I knew it was gonna be awesome, it just felt so right. I only played for a little bit cuz I need sleep but congrats to you and your team. I can't wait till i get around to full blown imperial star destroyers.
You are most welcome. I am very glad you are enjoying it. Just wait until you get an ISD out....you will blow a zipper!
Oh, and soon....the SSD is coming....
Could that be the Eclipse per chance or the Executor.
Executor for now.
I've never encountered this before and I generally never have issues with rendering any websites, but DANMAN, your website will absolutely not load. In IE7, it tells me "nav cancelled" which is stupid because that means the command that loads the page is being aborted, like when you hit Esc. In firefox and others, it tries to render the whole webpage as an embedded windows media player, which doesn't play anything, obvs. I've used several links, all to different locations on the site, from www.danmangames.com to http://www.danmangames.com/index.php?p=1_13_MODS. It's all the same. And I haven't a clue why.
So what I'm wondering is if someone has mirrored the 2.1 somewhere else. Because I have sins patched to 1.05 and I am eagerly waiting, desperatly trying to find a way to get this.
The host is once again experiencing problems, which is why I am moving over to a private server, a DANMAN GAMES server. Please bear with me (US) while this is happening. Try it again in about an hour.
Also, I am done all the buffs for the conversion, now on to capital ships!
