Tyranny starves in the absence of consent. Phoenix Rising is not an organization so much as it is a thought – a conscious choice to oppose the New Order. What if enough disparate beings have this thought that it sparks a movement, six months into the Empire?

The answer to that question plays out in the course of this total conversion. In a time where the Empire's grip on the galaxy is still tenuous, take command of early Rebel luminaries or the Emperor's closest advisors in an epic struggle to define a galaxy still smoldering from the Clone Wars.

Assemble your faction's war machine from dozens of asynchronous lines, then augment it with hundreds of potential upgrades. Transform aspiring heroes into legends to provide intangible leadership to your military and government. Leverage entire planets and civilizations to their greatest potential through base building. Then, when everything is in place, plot your conquest vector.

This is a four-decade strategic simulation of warfare across 120,000 light-years.

It takes too long to build things in addition it takes a extremely long time for weeks to go by. Is theres any way to make them faster?

No,however there is a much harder way if you know what you are doing; this way is to edit the XML code associated with the wanted units you want to speed up. The file data configuration/organization in the PR mod is a bit as the XML files are inside a config/meg file,which I'm trying to extract with a certain program. Sorry...

Hey Guys,

I'm finding an issue with the mod crashing on startup, the FoC splash screen appears, goes blank, you see the word 'loading' in the bottom left, with the triangle cursor, the crashes to desktop? Any help would be appreciated, used to okay the mini mod, and can't play the standard game anymore haha.

It could be a number of things. Go to the forums here: Eawpr.net

If not me, then someone in the community will have an answer for you. :)

I'm taking this opportunity to mention that if any of you guys on ModDb have any questions for us (or about us for that matter), then please use the address above. We, sadly, can't be as available here than on the PR site; the team is small and has it's hands full with development. We're getting closer to completion every day!

As a tester I can't give y'all major news but I can say that work on 1.3 is proceeding at a good pace. Thank you for your support and patience, it really is appreciated! If any of you want to give the team feedbacks, suggestions or if you want to just casually talk about the mod, come to the official site and let us know what you have to say.

To everyone, have a great day and keep the faith, 1.3 will be coming your way asahp.

A solid mod, to put it simply. Instead of aiming for balance, like the vanilla Empire at War did, this mod aims for accuracy according to Star Wars lore. So yes, your Imperial-class Star Destroyer will indeed be stronger than almost any similar cruiser the Rebel Alliance can throw at you. However, that makes it all the more satisfying when that star destroyer is crushed by a more strategically built force. The mod is far from complete, but the team actively works on it and produces quality news…

Seems to be a massive code mod more than a actual content mod and feature mod. The lag is terrible and makes the mod almost un-playable. The battle times are way too long. If they were going for realism on battles and a real battle takes 5-6 hours then the team made their goal, as battles take hours. This mod while interesting seems to be designed for a small cadre of niche players that thrive and enjoy all the needless data and items filling this mod. EaW seems to be the wrong engine for such a…
