Hi Danman, I took the liberty of updating 'Solar Sins 2' for patch 1.1 because I couldn't wait.
After a long weekend, I think that I finally got everything working right and I was also able to reduce the size of your original mod by almost 300 mb by removing a lot of unnecessary files that you kept from the 7DS mod.
Here is the link to the file: http://files.filefront.com/Solar+Sins+20+for+v117z/;12467890;/fileinfo.html
As always all credit goes to Danman and his team. I only updated the mod, not created it!
