Greetings Gamers.

So I'm sure a lot of you are thinking the same thing. “These screenshots look great. Why hasn't he released the mod yet??” Well, they may look finished, but that is because I try to only post good looking content. The truth is, there is still a lot to be done. You all have been very patient, and I never take that for granted. So here is an update as to what has been, and still needs to be done.


Most of the animals, About 2 thirds of the buildings, a few military units, and almost all of the civilian units still need to be re-textured. This is a slow and deliberate process, but it also happens to be what I'm best at. So progress is continually made here. But hey, the terrain is almost done!

Back to Work Back to Work


A good chunk of UI has been made, and I now have a color scheme and template for the mod's look. So a little over half still remains. Which is good.


This is an ever evolving process, swapping out models and animations. If I had to put it into a measurable amount, I'd say I'm about 1 third of the way done with this process.

Back to Work HUD WIP


I have a few small pieces of music I have made, and a lot of raw data sound files I recorded. However, the sound design of the mod is still in its infancy, and only a little has been done.


This is by far, the part of the mod I am lagging behind in the most. I have 4 kingmaker maps done, and 1 campaign map. This has never been one of my strengths, and will probably be the most time consuming part of creating this mod.

Scenery Scenery

So overall, this mod still needs a lot of work. The pictures I post may not look like it, but believe me when I say this. It is NOT ready. Lots of stuff has been happening in my life, and I'm finding myself with less time and motivation to work on the mod. But it will be released. Perhaps not tomorrow, or next month, or even this year. But it will not die. It cannot die. I won't do that to you guys. On that, you have my word. So that's where we stand. Again, thank you for your support and encouragement. It really does mean a lot to guys like me.

As always, your faithful servant:

The Gatesman of Avenna

Hi just wanted to let all those Battlefront fans know that there is a page on facebook with 5,500 likes called "Who Else Wants Star Wars Battlefront III ?" The aim is to get Lucasarts to notice what fans actually want. If you wish to show your support simply log onto Facebook and go to the page and click Like.

Gaming websites have taken notice and even written articles so Lucasarts can see and every like that the page gets is another step towards Battlefront 3 being developed.

Thanks :)

sign up in this petition and lets get their attention!

the target of this petition is to force firefly to add skirmish like in crusader, to stronghold 1 or release the gm1 code so we can mod it. firefly must release also tools like AIV and new ones for modifying the AI's army selection and the ability to add new fully configurable AI opponents.
You me and the rest of the good customers of firefly we pay money and we continue
do that.

what firefly do in return?
releases stronghold crusader "extreme" a pathetic excuse of a game with no point what so ever. instead of adding skirmish in the existing one stronghold 1.

We sent massages but we get nothing in return. all we see its a faceless company!

they don't want to release gm1 code, and so we cant mod.
if they want to keep it secret ok but in return do what we want!
WE are buying and you sell it.

What we want is:
1)add skirmish like in crusader, to stronghold 1 OR release the gm1 code so we can mod it.
2)release also tools like AIV, and new ones for modifying the AI's army selection, and attack methods.
3)the ability to the user to add new fully configurable AI
opponents.(faces,voices,animation,army customization.ect..)

We will not buy any of your games if you don't proceed as we ordered.

Meh, Stronghold one was a masterpiece, Stronghold crusader added tons of awesome features but Stronghold 2 was just pathetic.
