Product Update - Valve
2012. ápr. 24.

Stardock Entertainment and Ironclad Games are happy to announce the availability of Beta 2b (0.80) for Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion today.  Now available via the Steam client for all pre-order customers, this update contains a number of bug fixes, performance optimizations and balance adjustments.


Change Log:


[ Graphics ]


  • Added correct icon for Mine Control ability.

  • Updated some UI textures.

  • Removed name from texture on TEC Corsev battlecruiser.

  • Increased zoom-in distances for all ships/structures.

  • Moved out build emitter point on Advent Titan Factory to prevent mesh clipping.

  • Fixed various mesh point errors on Advent Discord battleship.

[ Gameplay ]


  • Players are now limited to a total of four simultaneous superweapon structures. Based on feedback this amount may be increased, decreased or the weapon effects buffed, etc.

  • Adjusted AI to allow AI players to make better use of their available Fleet Supply. This is one step in a multi-step process that will be continued in the next update.

  • Autocast conditions added to most ultimate abilities; allowing the AI to use them.

  • Replaced Advent refinery drone mesh/texture with trade drone mesh/texture.

  • Updated game Victory/Loss strings.

  • Fixed typo in Advent racial description.

  • Reduced shield regeneration rate on all Envoy cruisers from 2.0 to 1.0.

  • Artifact Planet players (Occupation Victory) will no longer be placed as random militia on maps.

  • Replaced TEC Rebel corvettes at Pirate planet with Pirate Rogues.

  • Fixed bug that allowed temporary or illusion ships to be cloned by abilities or research subjects.

  • Updated Pirate Raid fleet compositions per level. Raids will now have a broader range of ship types and numbers. The max level raid is now particularly brutal, so you won't want to be the target of that!

  • Pirate Mission costs adjusted for new raid levels (based on average summoned fleet supply). Pirate Missions are now substantially more expensive to account for the greater difficulty.

  • Reduced Pirate research upgrade costs for all subjects.

  • Reduced number of research upgrades per raid from 2 to 1.

[ Sound ]


  • Fixed incorrect sound effect for planet bomb muzzle on Advent Loyalist Titan.



[ Misc. ]

  • Optimized a variety of systems that are dependent on getting targets in range. This should resolve one of the biggest causes of slowdowns in large games.

  • Optimized AverageCulturePercFromAllConnections, which was causing major slowdowns, especially in terms of targeting.

  • Optimized pathfinding within the same orbit body for improved performance.

  • Optimized threat detection system for performance.

  • Optimized order system cleanup for performance.

  • Fixed bug with Logitech G-series keyboard display that allowed players to see unexplored planet information.
