Welcome to the 7 DEADLY SINS mod, as featured in PC GAMER by DANMAN .
Welcome to 7 Deadly Sins 2.5 FINAL for the latest version of Sins Entrenchment 1.053.7DS can only be played at HIGH maximum settings. DO NOT USE VERY HIGH settings. This will cause a minidump. Also, there is an issue with Win7 64 bit. You will get crashes, load errors, or the game will not even play, with or without warning. Just keep reloading the game and trying until you actually get into the game and play. This is a Windows problem, not a problem with Sins or 7DS.
7 Deadly Sins is:
The ultimate combo mod, the "unoffical" expansion of Sins of a Solar Empire, or so it has been dubbed by the mod community.The work of many individual modders working together under my leadership (DANMAN3712).Nearly 4 years old and downloaded in various forms over 100k times worldwide and in 5 languages.
Together, we form the 7DS Mod Team and the backbone of DANMAN GAMES www.danmangames.com

12 Playable Races with their own traits that make them more unique, from being a total offensive race, to a highly researching race. Each race now has its own unique tactics of gameplay.
Trader Emergency Coalition- solely based on trade and swarming, with little military might Corpo-Nations that have rebelled against the Trade Order. Their military might stripped, they have turned to allying themselves with various factions and hiring mercs for protection. TEC has new Battlecruisers, mercenary contracts, and EMP shells that bypass shields to a small degree.Trade Coalition Armada- the military arm of the Trade Order Once the development arm of the Trade Order, they are now the last hope for the Trade Order and humanity. Their ships are bricks with extreme range railguns.
TCA has state of the art weapons on traditional capitalships plus the Dresden and Athena Dreadnought and Beta Kol Titan.The Orion Unity- modified Orion and Advent Combine Some Orion split with the Atlantian-Orion Combine to guide the Advent towards their ultimate evolutionary stage. TOU ships are stronger, faster and deadlier; They can even travel between worlds using the Phase Stabilizer technology of the Tempest Titan. Ship research boosts weapon performance.
DARK FLEET- modified Vasari The Dark Fleet is all that remains of the Vasari. Where the weak Exodus ran often and fought rarely, the Dark Fleet seeks total dominion through force of arms. Their 5 Titan ships roam looking for prey. Play style is familiar with greater armor, firepower and destructive potential.
Imperial Armada- from Star Wars Guided by a clone of General Thrawn, the wasteland armadas of the Imperial Armada can employ powerful Force Alchemical Technology and even unleash the power of the Executor Super Star Destroyer. Can unlock Jedi and/or Sith Holocrons for performance boost to defenses or offenses respectively -and at the expense of the other.
Rogue Cadre- Playable, custom pirates Rob, pilfer, and steal your way to greatness. The Rogue Cadre is a melting pot of human cultures, Advent refugees and what remains of the Vasari. They have gathered against the TCA, TOU, Atlantian-Orion Combine and TOC to free humanity from tyranny, mysticism and slavery. Posess the Precursor Titan and The Machine -the latter capable of capturing capitalships
Arilou Vanguard- UFO race from the Star Control Games Not being of this dimension, the Arilou do not rely on money and normal means of transport or construction. They simply spawn ships from their "motherships", and travel through Quasispace, which propels them at near instant speeds from planet to planet.
Ur-quan KohrAh Third Doctrinal Fleet- Death race from the Star Control games Totally aggressive, the Korh-Ah are built for battle. They are all offense, and barely any defense. They focus on exterminating every race and every planet they find, and almost every ship is capable of boming from orbit. Their goal is to "cleanse" the universe of all other sentient life, anything that is not an Ur-Quan.
Ur-Quan KzerZa Third Doctrinal Fleet- Slaving race from the Star Control games Unlike their Kor-Ah cousins, the Kzer-Za believe in a diplomatic approach, let alone old habits of enslaving entire races into their Hierarchy. They have grown from their 10,000 year old ways, and are more good than bad now.
Atlantian-Orion Combine- the ultimate race, the seeders of life (the gods) The Combine are part of the original Creator Alliance and responsible for seeding galaxies with genetic data. The Orion are the protectors and defenders until the Atlantian vessels can be fielded. Their greatest strength is their technology, but the loss of labs remove bonuses gained from research.
Taalo Horde- Ancient Rock race, from the Star Control games As if the universe itself groaned for a protector, the Taalo have awakened from a million year slumber only to find old allies -the Atlantians and Arilou stripping the galaxy of semi-sentient flo-metal. They are the ultimate enviromental defender with a naive sense of justice. They have incorporated alien technology into their asteroid bodies with great results.
Triad of Creation- Ancient Destroyers of Worlds, Galactic Enslavers The Triad of Creation, the Dnyarri, Antaran and Lapis, seek to eradicate all life in the universe. They nearly destroyed the Atlantian-Orion Combine in the Ori galaxy by turning their creation -the Vasari- against them. They emerged from within the Rogue Cadre taking a sizeable portion of their population into slavery. Their fleets struck the Taalo and Dark Fleet with vessels designed for infiltration nearly crippling the two factions.

7 Deadly Sins, a Danman Games Production/Mod for Sins of a Solar Empire by IronClad/StarDock.
Found and downloaded what I believe is the latest version, but I get an error when I launch the mod - the SINS Rebellion EXE is trying to get the Microsoft Visual C++ runtime library to terminate in an unusual way. I've never seen THAT before when running mods... they either work, or the game minidumps... any thoughts?
Do you have all DLCs turned off?
Quoting DANMAN3712, reply 4925Greetings All!My post was locked, but now undone thanks to the wonderful people here (Thanks Yarlen!)Oh by the way... I'M BACK NEW 7DS VERY VERY SOON.... DANMANlooking forward to checking it out.
No, as it crashes before I can even get to the main screen.
Hey! I'm still lurking about and waiting. Keep on it!
Likewise ... always enjoy the 7DS mod.
PS: missing the new maps for 7DS ... which weren't in the previous release.
Turn off DLCs in steam. On the main page in the steam library there should be check boxes where you can turn off DLCs.
Tried that. Didn't help. Am stuck... and would like to give it a whirl. Ditto when running with the dev exe; it reports issues with several different entity files, things like missing lines or syntax or something... and then Runtime Error!
Could it be that the mod is trying to make the game do something it's not set up to do?
What version of the mod are you trying to get to run? There are many, MANY out there on the web. If the version is not right, or the version of the game is not right, you will get those C++ errors.
Also, wanted to say thanks for all your support guys and kind words in the above comments. I am in the background working on the next release and ironing out all the pesky bugs that popped up with the latest version of Sins. The team is very small now, mainly just me, and with my 2-3 jobs, my family, and my small music career that is sortof taking off, modding time comes with a challenge lol. But, fear not, I am slowly yet steadliy working on it. I'm hoping to have a release within the next 30 days.
Love you guys,
Is this mod playable in Rebellion v1.90?
Yes, it works with the most current version of the game.
Where i can find it's file? Is it in Moddb?
That links directly to my DROPBOX. That is where the latest version is RIGHT NOW.
Thank you.. I'll check it out soon..
Hey. Just pointing out you still didn't add in the Empire fixes I did. Can you please get that done?
That's actually first on my hit list. I need to install those an another copy of the mod I have for testing purposes, just to make sure you don't overwrite anything I have already done. That has happened far too many times in the past with developer's patches that were given to me.
As soon as I'm done testing that, I'll release it out.
Any news on the next release?
I'm not dead! Just super busy doing work at home (I lost my job, so I am a full stay at home web and graphics designer now) and my wife and I just had a baby girl! After 4 boys, we finally get a girl. Don't worry, we are DONE! We were done about 2 kids ago lol.
Anyways, I have not forgotten you all, just been insanely busy with life. I have also tested the waters with making music and trying to start a music career (I make Synthwave under the name Neutron Dreams).
THAT being said, I am making new music tracks for the mod, and including them into the next release. I hate to give a date I can't live by or deliver on, as that has been done so many times, myself included. I also hate saying SOON, as that gives no real time value. I want to say in the next few weeks to a month, I should have something new out for you all. I thank you all for your continued fanship and support over these many years. The team is down to just me again, as this game is around 9-10 years old and people get bored. Just wanted to let you all know whats going on, and hopefully I'll have something shiny to show you all in the next coming weeks.
Congrats on the kid!
Now you will have to change your name to DANDADMAN.
Thank you so much! I guess with 5 now, I really should change up my name haha!
Thank you Sinperium for all your support over the years, I really appreciate it.
I'm the jock strap of online encouragment.
The website is down right now...couldn't afford to keep it going on the current server. I am trying to migrate it over to another host.
In the meantime, feel free to make all posts here.
I do apologize once again for my absence. This is becoming more and more straining on me, since I am back to being the only one left to work on this great mod. I also work full time from home now, which is more that I realized it would be, plus taking care of my 4 month old daughter (yay, after 4 boys!) and trying to build a music career.
Anyways, I didn't get many donations to keep the site going, and I don't blame anyone, as I have not put out a major release for a long time now. Know that I am still working on it, slowly, and it will come out when its ready.
Thank you all for your continued support over these many years.
Congrats Danman and best wishes to your extended family. Was nice seeing some familiar faces lingering around still.
Thank you TobiWahn_Kenobi, great to see you as well. Many of the oldies are all gone, but glad to see some linger. I'm not hanging up the reins yet, still lots for me to do....just doing it all on my own now takes more time than I currently have. But know that it's always on my "to-do" list, and that I'll get it out as soon as I can.
