The 501st Legion, also known as the 501st Battalion during the Clone Wars and later known as "Vader's Fist" and the Five Hundred and First, was an elite unit of clone troopers commissioned by Supreme Chancellor Palpatine during the Clone Wars that later became a stormtrooper unit. Made up of units like Torrent Company, the 501st fought in many battles, such as the Battle of Teth and the Battle of Coruscant, becoming one of the most well-known legions. In 19 BBY, the 501st became Darth Vader's personal unit as he led them during Operation: Knightfall, in which the clones helped take down the Jedi, whom they believed to be traitors to the Republic.

It's that time of year again... Mod of the Year time! As Yoda once said: "Hmmm, most grateful we would be if award we won, yes!"

Dear fellow fans of Star Wars BattleCry (,

Thank you very much for your awesome support. It really motivates us!

Seeing as today, we are Rank 1 (again!), I thought I'd take the chance to ask you to vote for us as mod of the year!

Winning the 'Best Upcoming' category would be truly awesome.

Also, just to let you know, we will be releasing our December update over the next couple of days!

Mod of the Year Awards

May the force be with you... Always.

Will a video showcasing some system we're intergrating be enough for you? :-)

A gameplay teaser will still be a few weeks away...

'Looks good' is relative.
Do you mean functionality or 'man, that piece of code sure as hell looks sexy!'? :D

It should be aesthetically pleasing. If it's just a bunch of code, at least make it colorful. make some words blue, others red. then I'll say it looks good. :-)

:D Ok, then I've got a lot of code for you. Orange, green, yellow, red, blue, white, dark gray. It's like a My Little Pony version of code.
The 'systems' we have developed aren't aesthetically pleasing though because the assets aren't finished yet, the functionality is there tho.
