-pop cap Empire Space:  120
-pop cap Rebels Space: 100
-popcap Empire ground : ~ 45

-faster/slower building of some units , eg.: in Skirmish faster building for Rebells, slower for Empiore, but for this, Rebel Ships' blow up rapidly as their Shields are down.

Research:

Instead of a research tree as in the game the rebellion now techs via a research station.

+Rebellion is able to choose between multiple factions
+more tactical than just destroy the enemy station (protect the research station it is able to defend against fighter(s) but not against bigger stuff!)
+a well placed attack on the enemie's research station throws him back to Tech I (empire gets one as well)

-you have to defend it
-possible game crash when choosing a faction whilst playing against an AI (happens  very seldom lately)

Spycorp,

Would you know of a way to disable the intro/splash screens on EAW?

You know, the Petroglyph and LucasArts ones. Perhaps with an XML or by removing/replacing the BIKs (I am assuming they're BIK, but I don't know where they are located.)

Also, good to know you're still working on this.

Yes, there is a way to disable those splashs.
In the file "Movies.xml" delete or comment out these lines:

<Movie Name="Logo1">
<Movie_File>Data\Art\Movies\Binked\LucasArtsLogo.bik</Movie_File>
<Cannot_Skip>false</Cannot_Skip>
</Movie>

<Movie Name="Logo2">
<Movie_File>Data\Art\Movies\Binked\PetroglyphLogo.bik</Movie_File>
<Cannot_Skip>false</Cannot_Skip>
</Movie>

That's all.
The file is to be found in the config.meg.

However, if you alter gamefiles it may happen that you are unable to play with others who did not.

Well...
At the moment only outdated versions of the mod are avaible.(Those were made for EaW)
The new mod (which is for FoC) was not yet released.
I am working on gameplay mechanics right now, so a release is currently not possible. (Too many [MISSING]'s, upgrades that do not work at some random point that needs to be fixed, etc)
Eg:
There are multiple new factions I want to write but there are...problems balancing them.
As I wrote, I intend to make the game more...Movie feeling, so for example, battles are far more complex, as with rockets that can be stopped, Fighters that can deal damage to heavier ships if those are left alone (see Deathstar against fighters) etc etc etc. As I want to get at least 2 new factions (and if possible make them modular, so that they can be downloaded separtely on the next release, there are some units I still have to figure out how to balance them.

Concerning the play issueas you mentioned:
What exactly do you mean?

Well ,the old versions avaible on Moddb do not add anything new to the game, they just change it.
Eg:
Faster firing, less Hardpoint health and strogner shields.
Those old versions represent the state that my modding skills were when I first begun modding.

Revieweing the whole stats, reviews and also comments regarding the mod, it was probably an error to publicly upload it when I jsut did and should have waited a year or so.

Well, afterwards one knows more, or however one would translate this...

The newer Versions (3.0 - not recommended, very buggy, only on Strategyinformer) and as well the version that I gave to the beta-testers (they...joined in the last hour or so[concerning the past beta event]) had more content that was not in the game.

However, at the current rate I think I can release a new update in the next month from now but I am not sure.
There are still parts in the mod that do not work as I intended them to. But the new units do work and textures are nothing unknown to me anymore, so the progress on the new faction (the other new one is ready but still has to be balanced and possibly exported to be modular) should be rather fast than slow.

If I might ask, well, from what I can tell, you've made SDs be available at Tech5, made X-wings unavailable until Tech5, made another coper of Admiral Akbar (which appears to be just bigger and cost a tad less, and it's description is in chinese, japanese, or something to that effect) and made Akbar cost a lot more.

Also, I keep on getting logfile.txt. It appears when I was playing Empire, during skirmish.

If I might ask, how long has this mod been going?

Over a year with some time paused.
However, the version you played is over a year old, the progress on the game was stopped, I switched over to FoC.
The SDs that were only avaiable on Tech5 are the most powerful ones now, there are as well some avaiable from Tech 4.
Those are weaker.

Well, the description thing is true but not more present in the more actual version.

And keep in mind that over a year past since then.

Currently?
At nothing, elseways I couldn't write this.
5 Minutes ago?
Some fun way to test something:
Youtube.com
Well, it is testing only, no other purpose, so...

At the current point I am working on unit repurposing.
E.g.:
Y-Wings do have a turret on the top of the cockpit. This turret now shoots.
X-Wings do now have protonentorpedoes, as soon as you reach Tech5 (prerequirements yet to write).

Next would be the techtrees.
Then some new units, models etc - still some way to go.
