A patch fixing some bugs and tweaking a few things here and there.
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, though seeing one of these will be a special occasion and plenty of reason for panic.
This is my little love project, besides my main mod, Old Republic at War ( Moddb.com ) Sometimes I get a little sick of all the Old Republic era stuff and want to do something closer to the original game, in a different time line.
Constructive critisism is appreciated and taken into consideration, and occasionally I'll make a poll about something to get different opinions on the subject, though the final decision remains mine. No unit requests.I reserve the right to write back an angry response or flat out ignore you.
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!
If you enjoy what I'm creating and want to support me in making my mods, a great way to do so is to send me a tip! Tips help to keep me modding when otherwise I would have to spend my time working "real" jobs leaving me unable to do the work I love, which is modding. Paypal.com
The absolute fool-proof way of installing this mod:
Download the mod. It comes in an archive that you can open with several programs, most common one being winrar. Open the archive, and extract the folder EAW-Re.
Somewhere on your computer there is a folder that holds all the Forces of corruption files, named "Star Wars Empire at War Forces of Corruption" Find it.
If you installed mods before, then there'll already be an extra folder inside the FoC directory called Mods, if not, create it. Drop EAW-Re in that Mods folder.
So it'll look like Star Wars Empire at War Forces of Corruption/Mods/EAW-Re
Open the EAW-Re folder. Inside is a shortcut which works if you installed the mod to C:\Program Files (x86)\LucasArts\Star Wars Empire at War Forces of Corruption\Mods\EAW-Re If it doesn't work, right click the shortcut, go to properties, and edit both target paths to where ever you have your game installed. Don't forget to keep the modpath otherwise it'll just start the regular game.
All steam related comments will be removed, read you lazy pricks.
Got a problem with AI? Try a reinstall of the game. AI works fine with a clean FoC and has been tested by me personally. Still doesn't work? Figure out what is causing the issue, don't ask me, I've got no clue what you did to your game.
This is the model of the Basilisk War Droid I created. Modders resource only.
