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.
I am proud to present our new total conversion mod, Tides of Conflict: Old Empire at War!

Sigma Games Studios proudly presents Tides of Conflict: Old Empire at War. A TOTAL CONVERSION mod for Star Wars Empire at War Forces of Corruption, diving you into the immersive battlefronts of the Old Republic in 3653 BBY, the Cold War and Second Galactic Civil War Conflict which will be based on The Old Republic MMO by Bioware EA. A tribute to their excellent work. This mod will be GROUND-BASED ONLY.
Long have I anticipated the day I announce this mod. The releases of the mod will be modular. This means at each milestone of progress there will be a release. Version 1, 2 etc.
Version 1 will include up to 21 new planets all with high fidelity maps and props that will immerse you into the lore. As well as 2 major factions and 2 minor factions. (The Sith Empire and The Republic) The minor factions will be announced in due course. This will be a nice surprise.
Further major factions, planets and game modes will be implemented as expansion packs as each milestone of progress is reached. This way, we can release the mod sooner and allow our changes to be more flexible as opposed to one final massive mod being released after about 5 years of progress, in which time the future is uncertain.
We are working in collarboration with Ozzy667's Clone Wars Mod, Codeman99's Great Galactic War mod and Burntstrobe's Yuuzhan Vong at War Mod with a small development team. We are currently hiring Skinners, Modellers (infantry in particular) and Riggers. If interested, pm me, Cognosco and we will set you up with the team!
The mod will implement new mechanics and stratergies to enhance gameplay and challange. We seek to make land combat in such a way that has never before. An innovation of SWFOC.
Yield up to 3 heros, 5 different infantry varients, 2 transport class vehicles, 2 heavy cavalry class, 2 medium and light vehicles and 1 recon vehicle in the first build of the mod and more in future expansions.
The future is bright, and we will prevail this time. Stay tuned for more updates and releases as the galaxy unfolds around us!
