IMO Entrenchment is worth getting regardless if SoA2 is ready for it or not. Especially for 10 bucks. From what i played of Entrenchment it changes sins in a very good way. It still needs work IMO, but it is still quite enjoyable.
I dont know when i will be able to post again but know this..
The mod will continue. I spent much time building stations for the mod. We still have very big, and ambitious plans for SoA 2. The new star trek movie will effectively wipe out the entire TOS, TMP, and TNG timelines in one swift stroke. It will be replaced with the re-imagined timeline. A paradox of epic proportions, but SoA, and the old school fans will make those timelines live on through our art, and imagination.
0.04 will include all the content that is missing now (researches, stations weapons, tweaks, etc.) 0.05 will be the big spit and polish update. all models rebuilt, and retextured as needed. All effects music and sound finalized. Then the big jump to SoA 2 1.0. By that time the 3rd expansion of Sins should be out. We all know that the final sins expansion will deal with diplomacy (though i am sure more than that will be added). In what way we do not know yet.
Darkhimmer, and crew will continue to update the 0.03 series untill we all can get together, and make 0.04 happen.
DO NOT post, or PM minidumps... We are not programmers. We dont understand how the minidumps work. We cant read them. Only the Sins developers can read, and understand them. I do not have the 1.15 update yet being as i have no puter that can play sins at the moment, but before you post a crash issue check and make sure you DO NOT have entrenchment installed, or have had it installed. Do the fresh install of sins 1.15, and deletion of the ironclad games folder before 1st run as per the original readme instructions.
Make sure you installed the mod correctly, and do not have 2 instances of an SoA2 folder (one inside of the other) before you post any crash issues.
If you do have a crash issue what we do need to know is what error message you got before the dump (if you got an error message before the dump) BE AS DETAILED AS POSSIBLE, and if others have the same issue we need to know this. This will help us to nail the problem.
