Star Wars: Interregnum is an upcoming mod for Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion that builds off of the highly successful Enhanced 4X Mod. Fleeing the unknown terror that is chasing the Vasari, the factions of Sins of a Solar Empire stumble on a temporary wormhole that takes them to a galaxy far, far away. The sudden arrival of armadas with trillions of refugees and thousands of warships between the events of Episodes 5 & 6 forever alters the Star Wars universe and plunges the galaxy into an unprecedented period of chaos and violence.
Features4 new factions: Interregnum will feature 2 new races each with 2 subfactions like vanilla Sins races...
Superior Gameplay: As a successor mod to the Enhanced 4X Mod, Interregnum will support all the gameplay enhancements found in that mod, including...
Unit and Character List
See this post
With the third alpha release, the Rebel Alliance has been added, meaning this mod can now be used to relive the Galactic Civil War as well as the current war with the Sins factions. The militia and pirates have also been replaced with Star Wars versions; now the vast majority of material on the game map is clearly from a galaxy far, far away.
I hope you don't lose interest in this project along the way. I'm really looking forward to playing the E4X hero mechanic in your SW mod, and it's looking fantastic!
Keep up the great work.
Oh believe me, I haven't lost interest. There's just been a lack of pictures to share until today, since I've been working on the research trees.
Also for those interested in the lore that don't follow the mod on moddb, the next part of the timeline was released. It's all about the revised Battle of Endor and explains how Darth Vader lives while the Emperor dies.
Finally, some older pictures I appear to have not gotten around to sharing on here.

What special abilities do you have setup on the TIE defenders if any? They're one of the more neat imperial strike-craft in my mind.
New article on is up on Moddb, taking a look at the Morale gameplay mechanic for the Galactic Empire.
Well, fighter abilities are a real pain to make, and nothing you can do in Sins really fit for the Defender. However, the TIE Defenders have 3 different weapons (Lasers, Ion Cannons, and Missiles) which allows them to deal substantial damage to almost any unit. They are also one of the fastest units in the game and are quite hard to destroy, unlike other TIE Fighters.
That said, the only way the Galactic Empire (the first Imperial Faction that will be available) can get TIE Defenders is by summoning the Elite 181st TIE Fighter Squadron from hero unit's special ability. Not only do you get 12 of these terrors, but their reputation causes fear among all enemy strikecraft in the gravity well, reducing their damage.
That sounds great Goa, I'm definitely in favor of restricting special/uber fighter types to specific ships/hero ships. For me personally, it feels more Star Wars to have the vast majority of playable strikecraft restricted to what was seen on screen in episodes IV V VI. That said, I'm really a fan of special units spawning special squadrons
Thanks for the update
Well with Strikecraft yeah, it turned out the ones from the movies are by far the most common ones for all factions. However, both the Alliance and Empire and one subfaction (Rebel Alliance and Galactic Empire) that is pretty much based on the movie factions, while the other subfaction (Imperial Warlords and the New Republic) are more heavily based on the Expanded Universe after Endor.
This is looking absolutely awesome so far. Sorry if I missed it somewhere, but will there be an official scenario map? Like the entire Star Wars galaxy set up like the galactic map on your moddb page. Obviously it would be imba and take half a century to finish a game on it, but it would be worth playing. Would probably take a lot of work, but a giant map with all of the playable races starting with their existing empires would be epic. Even if there's not, Interregnum got me interested in Sins again.
Someone needs to remind me to share more goodies on this page. If you haven't already, check out the latest news about the Morale System, one of the unique gameplay mechanics of the Empire.
Oh there will definitely be new maps. That one will probably need to wait until all 4 factions are complete, but it is possible other Interregnum themed maps will be made before that.
Hey goa, here I am, Lord_Sevicson on moddb. Interested in the invite you have send
The mod continues to make good progress, despite real life keeping me busier than expected. Check out a possible look for the main menu screen and some Super Star Destroyer eye candy.
Any news updates on the mod, Goa? Hoping for a release before I go on vacation for 4 weeks (no gaming!)
Hes being paid by the empire to not release the game since they will get all their shinies blown up
The mod is currently undergoing its internal battlefield testing, though it seems I have been better at giving sneak peaks at the test results on the moddb page.
Well, it is true I have a billion odd credits stashed away in Imperial Credit 20 years treasuries, but that is mere coincidence. I assure you it has had no influence on my work in this mod whatsoever.
Goa, you got screwed if you got paid in Imperial Credits since they'll be obsolete once the New Republic takes over
In this mod Darkness, it is IF the New Republic takes over. As of right now I can still use them in the core and colonies.
wow. just wow.
love that map ^^
Bet you guys cant find hoth

I've sent you a million pms, GoaFan... did you read any?
looks awesome, I need to try this
EDIT: Want me to do some code for your OP so it don't shrink your poster?
Huh? I haven't gotten any PMs from you recently that I can tell. Not here, or on Moddb.
Not quite released yet.
While I do like your little menu on the SoA 2 thread, I think the resizing is important for this forum. Your menu goes off the thread page on my laptop for example. Still, I wouldn't say no to a little code sample. I'm pretty fluent in HTML and CSS, I'm just not sure how you got it into a forum post.
Now what I really want to do is pimp out the moddb page and background a bit like SoA and Ascendancy have done. Some hints on that would definitely be appreciated.
The CSS on ModDB I have yet to figure out, I was told to submit a CSS sheet, and if they like it, they will add it to your site, but CSS is very customizable and I have no clue what they want in the way of a submission. If you ever figure it out, make a Steam guide or post it to the SoaSE Modders group
I may help you with any buttons or background and stuff for the modDB page, but that is a serious pain in the ass I am not looking forward to repeating.
As for the forum OP. It Does not need to be larger than the thread area, but can be larger than the assigned without going through the re-sizing. The SOA2 logo is also to big and would re-size without my code. I typically use my very 1st thread as a sandbox of sort to test forum OPs. If you are interested, I will do one.
