Thinking about anything in Star Wars (especially post-1983 Star Wars) for more than 3 seconds causes the entire premise to collapse. Best not to worry about it too much.

Ultimately, our goal here is just to make a fun mod, with something for everybody. Personal feelings about the overall universe are largely irrelevant.

I've never experience the game totally locking up. The only issues I've ever had with SWGB on Windows 7 were the colors freaking out, which is a pretty easy fix.

As for the Sub-Factions, there's at least 2 for each of the 8 civs that specialize in certain aspects such as air, infantry, armor, etc. We'll be focusing on the Rebels, Empire, and Wookiees in the upcoming updates. Stay tuned!

Gen_Rhys_Dallows Jun 18 2014, 5:35pm replied:

Expanding Fronts uses new 'x2' DRS files for all of the Clone Campaigns units/audio/etc. When you run Battlegrounds_x2, the game refers to the new DRS/DAT files instead of the originals, so any modifications to those will not be seen.

In short, mods that effect non-CC/EF Units and objects should work. As far as I know, there's no way to adjust the Mod Installer to modify the x2 files instead. But honestly, there isn't much point in doing it to begin with. All of the stuff you just listed is already on our 'to-do' list anyway, most of which will use higher-quality models than the existing HeavenGames mods, and won't replace currently existing units/objects.

A Sub-Faction must be selected, yes.

Your specialization does not lock you specifically into your selected role. Even infantry factions still have a unique selection of mechs, aircraft, and heavy weapons; so they are certainly not powerless in those fields.

I would not be surprised at all if many of the existing stories are brought back in anyways. There's really no reason to try and redo nearly 40 years of history when there's stuff that fit just fine when it's not jammed in with 20 other sources trying to tell the same story.

This just seems like them dumping out a dirty, overflowing, disorganized dresser so they can fill it back up in a way that makes more sense. Yeah, some things no longer fit, some are tattered and broken and need to be thrown out. I imagine a good chunk of what already works will be kept. Even if it gets put through the washing machine a couple times.

I get that, but when there's like 8 completely different versions of how the Normandy landings went, all of which are supposed to be equally 'historically accurate,' there's a problem. Even that tiered canon system they used made no sense because there were numerous conflicting elements within the tiers themselves. Attempts to spackle things together just made it more confusing. Trying to clear all that up book by book over an almost 40 year period would have been an absolute nightmare. Purging it was really the only thing that could have been done.

I don't blame Disney for a second (if they're even the ones behind this decision), for looking at this train wreck, tossing up their hands and going "No, we're not dealing with this ****."

Oh no, all my books and games have disappeared! Except no, they haven't, so who really cares? Kyle Katarn is no longer canon? All my Dark Forces/Jedi Knight games are still sitting right here, and I enjoy them just as much now as I did last week, and the 10+ years before that.

The entire EU was a convoluted mess anyway, because LucasFilm had no quality control and would let anything through without actually checking whether it made sense or not. There were about a dozen versions how how the rebels captured the death star plans, like 6 origin stories of the AT-AT, conflicting timelines all over the place, etc. Then TOR, The Clone Wars, and the upcoming Rebels came in and started piling even more junk onto the train wreck, aggressively ignoring/rewriting the EU, often at the demands of Lucas himself (Maul being alive, pacifist Mandalorians, Mortis, Moriband).

Purging it all was really the best thing that could have happened. Disney is fixing the mess that LucasFilm shouldn't have allowed to happen in the first place.

Star Wars does not belong to George Lucas. Have you seen his original drafts for the OT? They were absolute garbage. Those films only turned into the massive success they were because there were people around (Gary Kurtz, Irvin Kershner), to tell George to shut up whenever he started spouting his awful ideas.

It's BECAUSE everybody gives credit solely to George for writing 'STAR WARS' on a sheet of paper - instead of the tons of editors/writers/directors that actually did all the work - that he was given free reign over the prequels, which turned out to be a complete train wreck because he surrounded himself with yes-men puppets that wouldn't question him.
