Ascendancy 1.0 Beta Readme/Changelog
« on: February 04, 2016, 07:25:29 PM »
IMPORTANT: IMPORTANT: IMPORTANT:IMPORTANT:
 Because Sins is a 32 bit program, it is limited to 2 gigs of ram. To get around this, please enable the Large Address Aware program included
in this download. To do this, open the program, in step one locate your Sins of a Solar Empire Rebellion exe ( in ...Steam\SteamApps\common\Sins of a Solar Empire Rebellion)
Check the box in step 2, and save. This only needs to be done once.

IMPORTANT: IMPORTANT: IMPORTANT:IMPORTANT:


To install Ascendancy, put the extracted Ascendancy-Sins folder in your Mods folder:
...Documents\My Games\Ironclad Games\Sins of a Solar Empire Rebellion\Mods-Rebellion v1.82 (Default)

To run the mod, edit EnabledMods with notepad to contain the following four lines:
TXT
Version 0
enabledModNameCount 1
enabledModName "Ascendancy-V1"

Then you can run Sins normally, and Ascendancy will load.
