- This mod adds a new faction (DkR/Dark Reavers, the name of my gaming clan) to Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion and also enhances all weapon effects and sounds of the existing factions. The DkR faction was originally mechanically identical to the Advent Rebel faction, but it is now somewhere between being a new Advent sub-faction and a completely separate race.
The DkR faction still uses Advent structures, the Eradica model for its titan, and the ship stats/performance/abilities are (almost) the same as the Advent. The DkR research tree still has much in common with that of the Advent, but also has some significant differences.
The ships are mostly re-skinned Romulan ships with tweaked weapon hardpoints. Why Romulan ships? Well firstly I'm not a modeller so I had to use models from somewhere else. Beyond that it's down to personal taste; I love the shape of Romulan ships, and thought they might look cool if they were black instead of green.
Aside from the addition of DkR, the mod changes the weapon effects (particles and sounds) for all the other factions (almost all weapon effects are custom) to make them more impressive and cohesive (TEC green/yellow, Advent blue/teal, Vasari red/orange/pink). Some ability effects have also been changed, along with some other minor modifications.
Addition of a new playable faction (DkR) derived from the Advent Rebels
Enhanced weapon/ability effects and sounds for all factions
Optional strikecraft component which reduces the number of craft per squad (for performance reasons) whilst maintaining overall balance
Team coloured Eradica titan
Enlarged Ankylon titan
Fixed several minor bugs present in Rebellion
DkR Faction Features
Completely new ship models and textures (other than their titan, construction ships and trade ships)
Completely new weapon effects and sounds
Custom research tree (still loosely based on the Advent research trees)
Further customisation of the DkR research tree to make it fully distinct from the Advent
Custom capital ship, frigate, titan and starbase abilities
Custom planet module meshes and textures
Custom voice files and user interface graphics
Rebellion texture optimisation
If the creators of any the models I used do not wish them to be used in this mod then I'll remove them on request (I don't know who originally created them).
The mod was built for Rebellion v1.51.4787.
