Hello, Community. I was going to work on this update longer, but I simply just do not feel like it right now. I will finish more of it later, ha. But for now, you can enjoy what changes and updates I did make. I was tempted to call this the "pro-Imperial update" simply because, I worked on them the most this time around. Well, I did work on the Rebel Alliance and Zann Consortium a little bit, but no where near as much as the Galactic Empire.

The Imperial starbase -- II-V -- now garrisons the Raider-class Corvette, the Executor now has an increased firing range, Thrawn is now available in more Galactic Conquest scenarios, Darth Vader spawns earlier in G.C. scenarios, but will not get the Executor until Tech Level 5, the Broadside-class Cruiser and Marauder-class Corvette had its shield type changed, and it default weapon will not fire turbolasers. They can still Barrage with Diamond Boron Missiles, though. All ships across all factions have received a 25% base speed upgrade. Whatever their default speed is, is now 25% quicker. I fixed an issues with shadowing on the multiplayer skirmish space map for Kashyyyk, blasters for land combat have also increased -- most by 25%, I fixed the firing-arc on the Assault Frigate Mark II. I noticed that its side batteries were off by a few degrees. It would turn towards ships and only fire with its two front batteries. I do not know if this was a mistake by the game developers, but it feels more like an assault frigate now. I reduced the amount of money the Zann Consortium Palace will generate. Honestly, it does not make much sense for a underworld palace to generate more money than an actual mining facility. In the game, a Mining Facility would boost a planets income by a factor of two... I believe; whereas a Palace would boost a planets income by a factor of seven. You can see why I lowered it. The Rebel Alliance can now hide their visible structure count more easily in any Galactic Conquest. Meaning you will need to use Probe Droids more often, now. I am also temporary reinstating Auto-resolve. For now it is back... I do not know if I will keep it, though. I am still thinking about it. I reduced the explosive radius on the Aggressor-class Star Destroyer. I noticed then when the Zann Consortium tries to take you with it when its Destroyer is about to die, it could destroy things far off, so I reduced it a little. I arranged the skirmish maps to make it a little easier when selecting a map. When wanting to play a Skirmish match, in the skirmish menu, just click the "Maps for Alliance at War" button. And I edited some space-box textures. You know how some maps had space with a blue-ish tent for the background stars? All of them are black now. Nebulas are still similar. The space itself is now black and white. I basically removed the blue tent. I thought that would be more realistic. As for the rest of the changes, figure them out yourself, ha ha ha ha ha.

In regards to the Raider Corvette, it was a little difficult to find a role for it. I did not want a Tartan Cruiser 2.0. I wanted each to feel useful. The Raider Corvette is equipped with four laser cannons -- same as the Tartan -- but it also possesses ion cannons to drain enemy shields quicker. It is smaller with a weaker hull and shields. The Raider is more of a "glass cannon" where as the Tartan is more of a "tank"; at least as far as Corvettes go. The Raider can Hunt, but it lacks a Power to Weapons ability; where as the Tartan cannot Hunt but in fact can divert power to its weapons. The Tartan is the beefier of the two, but I wanted to Raider to still have a role in the later stages of any campaign. It's ion cannons mean it can still take down Fighter and Corvette shielding quicker than any other. So when any scenario is beginning to turn into your favor, the Raider can still have a place if you want it to.


The Broadside and Marauder are in a late stage of testing. I am still working out balancing and fixes. Right now I am considering on removing the "poor accuracy" penalty from their Barrage ability. It is mainly because when it is activated, they will intentionally miss a few shots -- no mater how close -- then bombard the rest of their target with whatever they have left before their ability needs to recharge. I do not believe a captain would intention waste volleys before like that.

I made all the ships larger. In fact, I spent a long while sizing them to their correct canon length. As for zooming out, I do not know what would cause that. I will take a look at some of the XML's.

Hi brother. So I finished full GC campaign in 32 planets map in this mod! It was very hardcore, I must say! Consortium made me full pain, but I destroyed him by the greatest Alliance forces.

My ideas for you about future versions.
1. Please make new star sky in your mod (I mean, not original sky in space battles, but something like in Thrawns Revenge), I think you know what is it about.
2. Please replace Constortium to other factions, like Black Sun or Hutts Empire. Zann group was too small in SW canon, and in your mod its like new threat ;) :) They are coming and coming to all GC maps.
3. Can you make to Alliance more carrier ships?
4. Also can you return autobattles system? Its can be good, because sometimes real-time battles have crashes.

That's all, I think.
Your mod is amazing , anyway! Keep it up!

Yo, BagaturKhan.

1: I will work on some of the space textures, so hopefully that will help.

2: At some point, I will nerf the Zann Consortium again. Now matter how many restrictions I place on them, they are still majorly OP. So yes, they will receive more nerfs. I do not want to weaken them so much to where players complain they are un-playable, but I want to weaken them to the point that they struggle to. And I know they are more small-time in Canon than in Legends, so they will be nerfed even more. Maybe not this up, but at some point, I will get around to patching them. The Empire is going to get a lot of changes in the next update.

3: That might be tricky to do.

4: That I am still thinking about. I wanted every battle to feel important. Every life to have some meaning. When you lose something, even small, you feel the loss. But like I mentioned, I am thinking about changing it back to the optional Auto-resolve.

And thank's, BagaturKhan.

Cool idea, but what would have made it more interestin is if all the particles were purple too (ex. blaster fire, missiles...) and made the empire a different color like green. I hope this mod gets expanded beyond the colors.
