This mod catapults Empire at War into 2017. It maintains the game's design philosophy, while adding new units, better graphics, and deeper gameplay.
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 the Consortium's more fanciful units (the Aggressor and the Vengeance, namely) to be more militarily believable. And I /love/ that new Keldabe, I love, love, LOVE it.
This is a mod whose changes are so high quality that it makes playing other mods kind of difficult, as there'll always be a bit of a drop between them.
My only major quarrel is the fact that ground combat remains untouched. I can't personally blame you for that- making ground combat playable is something very few mods have been able to come close to, let alone achieve.
My one real call-out is your removal of the Defiler's Sabotage ability- it means the campaign is broken at an early point, and the mod makes the campaign /really/ fun otherwise. That's my one gripe aside from ground combat (which, as clarified, isn't really a gripe in the end).
9/10, space combat is beautiful, ground combat revamp would be nice but not necessary. Definitely a lot of potential on display here. Overall worth the download.
The RE mod is no doubt the highest quality mod available to Forces of Corruption. From animated turrets to minor ship details, this is the most beautifully crafted mod out there. Although, with such high quality there is always a price to pay.
The game introduces new units and upgraded previous units. From the Procursator Star Destroyer to the Victory Class Star Destroyer with fold animations for its stabilization wings to bring about its heavy concussion missles. What Jeroenimo has done here is absolutely breath taking.
Unfortunately, the trade off for quality is instability. Constant exception errors plague the mod from being truly enjoyable. A fix was released but, sadly, prevents the game from launching properly post patch forcing you to verify the games cache. Keep in mind, this is still in Beta or as he says "Very polished technical alpha."
Overall this mods quality has raised my expectations too high for other mods, I continually return to this mod time and time again because no other mod has delivered so much. Only two other mods really grabbed me after playing this which were Republic at War, and Old Republic at War which is also a side project by Jeroenimo.
Quality > Quantity.
I would give this mod a 10/10 if it became more stable.
The whole mod is great but it crashes sometimes
Jeroenimo is love
Jeroenimo is LIFE
awesome new ships
c everytime i try to load a game
Stunning mod with incredible attention to details. The space battles are so much fun with this mod.
If the issue with the crashes from loading saves of big cg maps late game will be solved, i'd give it a solid 10.
(ground battle doesnt matter much to me)
great mod that completely updates the game in every way for the better. really recommend.
The mod is amazing, beautiful models and effect. especially Overlord, unfortunaly you replaced the Executor and the Acclamator :(. But let's continue with the sounds. I Love the soundtracks from other movies especially from Mad Max. Altough I would change the voice of the Nebula Star destroyer. The rest are Vanilla music or audio lines.
The ground forces are the same as the Vanilla, so a dissapointment. But now the bad part. It's a very unstable mod, a lot of crashes and during the grand Conquest it has a lot of problems with the framerate.
I'll give you an 8, just because you put a lot of effort in it. I hope we'll see a updated and more stable version of this mod.
