Sentinal Mod (version 1.4)

The Sentinal Mod is a total conversion for Starsiege created by [MIB] Sentinal, which adds 25 new weapons, 7 enhanced weapons, 3 new armors, several new components, specific vehicle enhancements, and tougher AI. The mod is 100% compatible with normal Starsiege, because you run it with the -sentmod command line (just like the mission editor's -me). That means that you won't have to un-install the mod to play Starsiege normally.

Before starting installation, you must make sure to remove any other mods (or mod files) that you may have installed. To install the mod, merely unzip the .zip file into your Starsiege main directory. There should be 5 files included:

  • console.cs (Required installation)
  • SentMod.vol (Required installation)
  • DMstdLib.cs (Optional installation)
  • CTFstdLib.cs (Optional installation)
  • defaultVehicles.cs (Optional installation)

Then move defaultVehicles.cs, DMstdLib.cs, and CTFstdLib.cs into your multiplayer folder, replacing the older versions of the files. These files do not change normal Starsiege gameplay in any way, and they only add a few new features to the game ONLY WHEN THE MOD IS ON. So no need to worry about anything changing permanently when replacing these files.

NOTE: You do not need to un-install this mod to play Starsiege normally. Starsiege will run how it normally does regardless of whether the mod is installed or not. In order to run the mod, you need to create a shortcut to Starsiege and add the -sentmod command line to the end of the path to starsiege.exe. Here's an example:

C:\Dynamix\Starsiege\starsiege.exe -sentmod

Now anytime you want to run the mod, all you have to do is run Starsiege using this shortcut you've created. It's as easy as that.

Also, if you want to run the mod on a dedicated server, all you need to do is add -sentmod to the end of the dedicated server shortcut's command line. Here's an example:

                        infiniteSpawn starsiege -s server_DM_ALL.cs -sentmod

Troubleshooting FAQ

Starsiege crashes when I switch over to normal un-modded mode and I try to join/create a server. How do I fix this?

Starsiege is crashing because the last vehicle config you loaded was a modded one. So when you switch back over to normal un-modded Starsiege, the game does not recognize the modded weapons/components and therefore, crashes. To fix this, you must go back into the Sentinal Mod mode and change your vehicle config back to a normal un-modded config. Then exit Starsiege and try running in normal mode again. To avoid this problem in the future, whenever you go to exit the Sentinal Mod, make sure your selected vehicle is an un-modded config. And if you really want to be extra safe, the best thing you can do is to not save modded configs in the first place.
