Description

The FX Mod is a graphical and gameplay mod for Star Wars: Empire at War: Forces of Corruption. It aims to improve the particles, projectiles, and the fun factor for the game while keeping most of the original game intact. This mod's main focus is on skirmish, with features such as base building and micro-intensive battles providing a fun experience.


A little bit of history...
FX started out as a personal modification for testing particles that I made for Thrawn's Revenge. Dissatisfied with the standard FoC gameplay, I then began making gameplay changes in order to make testing the game bearable. After sending the mod to select people, they gave feedback on the mod and suggested that I turn the mod into a larger scale one. Thus, the mod was born.


Planned Features
-New Subfactions for the Empire and the Rebellion
-Base building in space
-Buildable superweapons on ground
-New units
-New sound effects
-New projectiles
-Death clones for all vehicles
-New death clones for infantry (i.e.:explosions, fire, lightning)
-Graphical upgrades to most, if not all, default particles
-New starfield and nebula textures
-New gameplay modes in skirmish

Note: This list is subject to change at any time and is in no way final.

Welcome to the third and last big update before the release of FX Mod. A lot has changed in the mod since the last time. We've paid attention mostly to gameplay enhancements, though we didn't forget about graphical sweetness.

But let's get to the point.

The Subfactions

What is this all about?
Subfaction system in skirmish gives you choice of 3 subfactions (3 for space, 3 for land), each of them grants you an access to a different set of upgrades and bonus units. So let's say if you choose 501st Legion for the Empire, you get unique infantry upgrades and units specific for that subfaction (while the basic imperial units stay without change).

How does it work?
At the start, you get either a buildpad (land) or a satellite (space). Each has got 3 build options - by choosing one, you choose a subfaction. Once the object is built, it becomes the place where you can buy all the upgrades and unit researches related to the subfaction. Simple? Yep.

Here's the complete list of subfactions and upgrades.
Space

Land

Ignore any typos/grammar mistakes, and I'm sure there are some.

If you've got any questions, feel free to ask.

Other stuff
I had no time to take any nice in-game pics so I'll be adding them successively within the next days. So far I can show you some of the new planets skins (ALO viewer shots):

Until the next time,
Filo

I'm really liking the subfaction idea. It will give us different strategic choices that we can take. One question, will it be AI compatible?

I have some ideas, you can add cells to the consortium, such as an android cell, another cell of Mandalorians, and another cell of pirate mercenaries, the names could be next: droid army, Mandalorian guerrilla, and piracy works, for example. You could add more units and effects for the Zan consortium and make it more dynamic, like the empire and rebellion with subfactions.

Darth Ponti,
Mod launchers would not work for me too, until i found Crosus mod launcher. Just search the web for Crosus mod launcher and download it, open it up, goto the mods tab, pick FX mod and press the green play button.
Hope this helps
