Awakening of the Rebellion is a Singeplay and Multiplay Mod for StarWars Empire at War. The mainfeature of AotR is a complete change of the gameplay. We tried to create the single fanctions as they are shown in the movies.

The first version of the Mod was allready released in April 2006. We changed the gameplay and added the first own new units like the Dreadnought and other ships for the Rebels and the Empire. AotR 1.1 is design to run with EaW 1.4 and has won reveral titles already.

AotR 2 will be available in summer 2007. Stay tuned for more infos soon!

In "Awakening of the Rebellion" you will face a complete change of the gameplay. We created the Galaxy map as it was in the movies and books...

there are allot of issues with the gold pack eddition, some of the buttons dont work and many of the buildings are eather non existant or gone entirely for example the light an heavy factories look like refineries but the heavy factories act like barracks and the barracks are everywhere, light factories offer upgrades but no trainable units, the starport that is added is invisable and serves no purpose at any tech level :( didnt notice any issues in space battles :)

Yes and in the story line, the campaign acts in a weird way.
In the galactic view and play:
The space station cannot build a single ship (odd for a ship yard).
No minning facility can be build to add up for some more income.
Building do not seam to be necesary to build troops and vehicules.
Were is the officer academy?
A lot of low prices.
Could you work on that or simply make some adjusment to the compagn, please.

i figured it out. you have to click on the little desura thing in the left top corner. when the drop menu comes down, go to tools. click on add installed game. then where it says manually installed game, give it the eaw name from the drop list and click browse to find the file directory.
