This mod wants to keep the original FoC experience, just with improved graphics, while adding a few units to keep it interesting.
This means new models and textures for almost all units. It also ramps up the difficulty so that the game remains challenging even after you've learned how to play it. All changes will only apply to space, ground is uneffected, as I'm not a big fan of ground combat.
What I'd like to do in the mod is make the higher tier units more dangerous, so that when you see a Star Destroyer it will be a larger threat than in the vanilla game. I do this not by giving the ship higher shield points, or add more hardpoints, but by making some of the hardpoints untargetable. This will ensure the ship is a threat right up untill it blows up, thus making larger ships with more health more dangerous for a longer time. Higher tier ships will also cost more.
The mod will also add one additional tier of battleship above the normal Star Destroyer, Mon Calamari Cruiser and Keldabe Battleship, and seeing one of these will be a special occasion and plenty of reason for panic.
This is my interpertation of an updated FoC, I like to think I have high quality standards and I always try to improve the mod in all ways, graphical, gameplay related or otherwise.
I hope you enjoy your stay here and that you're as excited for the mod as I am!
This mod is graphically intensive. This doesn't mean you need a monster pc to run the mod without issues or crashes, but instead, it means that the game will run out of memory and crash at some point or another, regardless of your computer. Installing the 4 GB patch gives the game 4 GB of memory to work with instead of 2. This will prevent crashes.
If you have problems with the 4GB patch, try this one instead: Techpowerup.com
For the "A required security module can not be activated. This program can not be executed." error:
This'll happen if you don't use the GoG version of empire at war, I recently found out this fix seems to work for people: Gamefront.com Install this, and then install the 4 GB patch.
Apparently steam doesn't like the 4 GB patch included in the download, instead, use this 4 GB patch instead: Techpowerup.com
From a guest who followed the instructions:
"Those that are struggling to get the mod to work on steam without crashes, here is what i did (Note that the instructions are on the comments section, however they are not clear)
I downloaded the file linked in the "how to fix crashes and the security module error" which takes you to gamefront. This should download a file with a Forces of Corruption executable, which you then need to unzip or whatever you use. You then need to patch the executable in that file with the 4GB of ram patch attached to this mod. Once that has completed, you need to then move the patched executable and replace it with the steam version's. You then need to set up a shortcut, go to properties and in the target parameter enter this "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Star Wars Empire at War\corruption\swfoc.exe" MODPATH=Mods/EAW-Re. Boom. Done."
Thanks to twomorelevels for this info:
Turns out people were having similar issues with Republic At War and someone said they managed to stop the crashing by copying the ai folder from the mod's data folder into the base game's data folder (EAWX->Data for GOG).

I'm really quite fond of this mod- particular highlights are your inclusion of some of my favorite Imperial ships, as well as the fact that you seem to admire the work of Ansel Hsiao as much as I do. I love all the completely new ships as well as the revamped models of the existing ones (more to come?), I love the accurately-sized fighters, I love the description of the Nimbus (though question your judgement of such a beautiful fighter). I especially enjoy that you've resized and renamed some of…
