Distant Stars is an ENHANCEMENT mod for Sins of a Solar Empire. It focuses on making improvements to the current game rather then trying to be a complete conversion mod. It does not add any new races but it does add a lot of research items as well as a few new ships. It has several built in mini-mods, a few mini-mods packaged with it, and many more tweaks and enhancements to the main game, including some UI changes, to give a player the best possible experience with Sins of a Solar Empire as possible.
