3 comments by The_Darker_Side on Mar 19th, 2014

Hello all! And welcome to a brand new news post for A Galaxy Divided- The Clone Wars! Today I am going to be explaining to you guys how the brand new tech system is going to work. I know what some of you are thinking or are going to say: "A new tech system? In what way? How?". Well, I'll answer those questions as I go along.
The tech system is going to be part of the Sub Menu system in a way. As the sub menu has a series of sorting buttons for both land and space units to make more space on the build bar. So there will be a Research button. Through this research button you are able to choose your desired tech or unit upgrade. However, there is a catch...
Say you research half the upgrades given to you for both land and space units. You won't be able to advance to the next tech level! This is kind of like Dennis Nedry's "You didn't say the magic word!" (Jurassic Park, gotta love it. Also we are referring to Newman here!) routine...

What you need to do is research everything because the better the tech, the easier it is to conquer the galaxy.

Now what upgrades are we talking about here? Well, upgrades that research new units and upgrade them. But still, what do we mean! Say that you research the ARC Trooper program, you get to train Phase 1 ARC troopers. But they have a specific set of abbilities due to being Phase 1 ARCs. So later on you research the Phase 1.5 armor upgrade for ARC troopers. This upgrade will replace the Phase 1 versions available in the buildbar with Phase 1.5. The difference between the two is their gear, meaning they have better range and have more durable armor. But when you get to Phase 2 ARC trooper armor, you can be sure that your ARC troopers are a force to be reckoned with. Also, certain upgrades make certain heroes appear. With the ARC trooper program a couple heroes can appear like the Muunilinst 10 and Alpha-17 "Alpha". Each hero will be affected CANONICALLY by these upgrades too.

^^^^ Nothing is this tree is final. Just a diagram for explaining. ^^^^

Now, on to researching brand new units!

Units like the V-19 Torrent always had prototypes. Canonically, the prototypes for the V-19 were used during the First Battle of Geonosis and were tested. Slayn & Korpril later created the final version of the V-19 torrent shortly after the First Battle of Kamino. Using this piece of history as an example, you can research new units. For the republic you already have access to the V-19 prototype when you start, but when you research the V-19 Torrent 'theory' the Prototypes are immediatley replaced with the final version of the V-19 in the buildbar...

And as for heroes.... That is something special... A special surprise for a later date. That is all for now, and I hope this gets you excited for
A Galaxy Divided- The Clone Wars.

I also really want give a big thank you to the_Farseer for creating an awesome splash for this mod. It has been something I wanted to have created to really show off how unique this mod is and to show what is to come. So thank you Farseer!

Hi! I am really looking forward to this mod. I played "Republic at War", but my main problem is that it isn't balanced very well and that some parts don't stay true to the Star Wars lore or are just unrealistic. The worst are space battles, where even the shields of massive capital ships go down in seconds which makes it pretty much impossible to use any kind of strategy.
I hope this mod will make it better.

You might be making a good point............Then again maybe you're not; I just don't know.
I would suggest finding a better online translator - preferably one that can deal with syntax.
