A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.... In a time when a crumbling Republic combated a clouded Confederacy; giving birth to a tyrannical Empire and a Dark Lord to be feared for ages to come...

Yes! We made a giant leap in progress. Read this news article to find out more!

Posted by The_Darker_Side on Oct 4th, 2012

We are now at a good 18%-20% now. For the past couple of weeks, me and a fellow coder on the team (The Dark Lord, Link) have created our own Sub Menu code from scratch. One that works 100%, many thanks to: Shimmra, Nomada, and Anakin_Sklavenwalker for advice and direction. Without them, this big leap wouldn't have happened :) So big ol' cookies for you guys. However, right now we are in a stand still for models. We are in need of someone who can UV map, rig, and animate units. Or just has 1, 2, or all 3 of the abilities. So, that is one of our major things why there isn't as many news updates, or picture for that matter.

Lately, I have been taking the liberty of making the mod soundtrack sound better and affect the mood of the fight or silence... Another thing is that I have gathered SO much SFX, that this mod is going to sound really good. We have SFX from the DC-15a rifle in Battlefront II and much, much more.

So, hopefully we can get some gameplay video out there in the near future. I like to have things look nice for people to see :) So, that is it for this news update. OH and we have a winner for the Fan's Choice unit. It won by a landslide of votes, literally. So our winner is: the AT-OT!

Great choice! We will have a use for it in the mod, so don't worry at all.

And for those who care about how many planets will be in Version 1.1, there will be 107 planets. And for those that like spoilers (!SPOILER!): The mod will have a total of 150 planets, which include expansions.

That's all for now!

All planets will be in their canonical places, and if you mean the trade route lay out, then yes.

Will clones be able to shoot from AT-OT, I mean its open transport and its sides are not to high for a clone trooper not to be able to fire. It would be something to see it lumbering across the map while clones fire from it.
