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.
We are currently working on one of the most iconic maps in the Star Wars Universe: Hoth.

Sceluk has been busy making the map as awesome as possible and while (for the time being) the map may look a bit different compared to the original (unfortunately, heightmaps cannot be taken from the original game and ported in CE3), we can assure you that this map will be home to some of the most EPIC Star Wars battles you could possibly imagine.
Here are some early images:
The next step is scaling down the map, creating the interior areas and getting rid of any unnecessary terrain.
After that, we will add textures and assets.
