Since their was no battle of Yavin, I've changed the year system from BBY (Before Battle of Yavin) and ABY (After the battle of Yavin) to:

-Prince Xizor and the Black Sun enter the war and ally with the Imperium (yet not on a huge scale, you must decide Black Sun's amount of involvement) and illegally sell arms to any enemy of the Empire, including the Alliance

-The "New" Hutt Empire enters the war (same as Black sun, only on a small scale compared to the Alliance or Jerec, you must decide how involved the Hutts will be) led by Jabba

-Imperial forces defeat the Alliance at Bothawui but abandon the planet, occupied by the Black Sun

Haha just realized that thanks. And I'm not sure, I thought about making some factions allies and you won't be required to attack them or they won't attack you. It's something I'm considering.

No problem, and I think you should. It would be the first mod for the EaW game that I've seen to have such a features.
