Will the new factions get their own structures? Republic is just using imperial structures with imperial markings for the most part. Even swapping out the other emblems with republic roundels would suffice.
Dark Eldar will be involved? Now I'm hooked. Not enough is shown in how eldar and their dark cousins view each other.
And on a side note, I'm predicting the Tau are going to be blatantly oblivious to the greater picture and warp-based phenomenon as usual.
It's special ability is a cloaking field, fed by a very very long power cord from the capitol ship.

Oops, didn't see the below post. So... next question:
There's mention of a sith faction, but I can't find them in-game.
No, I said they don't have the imperial logo, the pads and LZ have republic emblems. It's the base structures that still have the imperial emblem, I checked.
Stay on target... STAY ON TARGET.
Can they be rebuilt?
Those are the Kappa tanks from Mental Omega.
Korriban doesn't have any landing zones on the map in galactic conquest. Would love to battle through the Valley of the Dark Lords, but can't really do that with just 4 infantry squads.
"I sense a disturbance in the force!"
I don't know, seems a little TOO purple, like it's more vibrant than it should be.
Build pads and the unconquerable starting LZ in skirmish have republic emblem, but I looked closely and I was sure the buildings had imperial emblems.
Why do renegades look scarier than chaos marines and daemons?
Very few planets listed would be imperial before the first war, so maybe make some duplicate planets with new names just for that map? I don't know. My idea was Empire starts with a lot of forces concentrated in just 4-5 planets close together, and you basically blitzkrieg it out at first since you'll initially have more forces than the republic is prepared to defend against, until they run thin and you have to stop and use the newly acquired planets to build up again. Naturally, Dread Host and the Revanites wouldn't even be present on the map.
And I understand what you're getting at. I was just under the impression they were placeholder models while you worked up something new since they still had imperial markings, thinking I could offer suggestions for future models.
Needs more guns.
What about at the very least swap out the symbols? Republic structures still have big imperial roundels on them.
I have an idea for an Empire-only galactic conquest map- Great Galactic War. Basically, you start out with a small number of planets but a lot of forces, and invade the Republic. Because it's the start of the war, the Republic starts out controlling Korriban and you have to capture it to produce more sith, as well as other worlds normally under imperial control. Victory condition wouldn't be total dominance, but controlling certain planets (all or most of the worlds empire owns in normal map) an/or take Coruscant.
Looks great, but I think it could use some chapter/legion color areas.
Since the main comments section runs really past and stuff gets buried really quickly, I'll ask here:
1. Will droids get better voices than TCW helium sucker ear rape machines? Plenty of good sound files from various games, like Battlegrounds, the battlefronts, and Republic Commando.
2. Will republic buildings be further customized than all rebel structures retextured (original designs or adding retextured imp buildings)?
If the mod dies, it dies the most complete and high quality total conversion for FoC. Unlike mods that sputter and die in alpha or pre-alpha.
Will republic structures ever get a make over? I like the idea of retextured rebel structures to give a feel the Rebellion is reusing abandoned republic designs, but maybe add some retextured imperial structures too or completely new designs for good measure, doubting the empire would have abandoned every design and the rebellion picked up every design abandoned.
I build up bases, bolster garrisons, and snatch every neutral world in reach, but before I can get to tech level 3 and build any more than 3-4 acclamator ships to guard each world the CIS starts attacking different worlds with 12 Munificent frigates and 2 ring carrier every minute or two, before I've even had a chance to invade any sep worlds.
Will Hutt Cartel make use of the corruption ability Consortium uses in the vanilla game? Would fit well with them, considering that's exactly what they did on Makeb, lol. I was thinking the Revanites could get a similar ability, only the only ability is turn a planet's natives to the revanite side, and maybe even, if possible, a chance of a weaker unit in a garrison defecting to the revanites.
Not updating the moddb page anymore?
My point though is they wouldn't own their own capitol ships or planets. As a single player campaign maybe, but not for galactic conquest or Skirmish.
Are you going to update the republic structures? Right now they're just imperial structures with the imperial logos in a slightly lighter shade. I was thinking of this: A mix of rebel and imperial structures with a light-grey shade (opposed to rebel white and imperial dark grey) with republic logo in place of imperial and rebel. It's fitting because some republic designs must have continued into the Empire, and it would make sense for the Rebel Alliance to recommission republic designs the Empire abandoned.
Eh... I don't know. Too obscure and lacking in military force to be a whole faction. Isn't their whole thing manipulating the other factions with infiltration and assassination, not with whole armies and fleets of their own?
Other mods have pulled off not having team colors at all in skirmish. Personally I think the map and other indicators are enough for determining faction, but do what you think is best.
You're not adding team color on models right? It's a redundancy that takes away from the accuracy of the model.
What the ****?
I know, but what I'm asking is, will the Imperials/sardaukar/Corrino/whatever you want to call them going to be their own faction? I ask because Dune 2000 had them as a Harkonnen unit in multiplayer, and Emperor had them as a subfaction any faction can hire.
Are sardaukar their own faction? They should be.
