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.

Oh! there's more coming. But, as always, there's no set date. PR should make an announcement about the state of the mod on the main site.

I am currently experiencing some issues regarding loading saved games. Earlier I was playing this game and saved the game in galactic conquest on week 66 in my Galaxy Far Far Away Empire Campaign. However when I try to load the saved game ,the game immediately crashed to the desktop with no error. I attempted to load an earlier saved game in week 45 in my campaign, to check if it was only that file but the game also crashes to the desktop for that save file. Note: I was able to load the week 45 save game in the past.

Known "feature". Too many things, too many problems. Needs a very powerful PC to run GC in this mod. Mine is too slow, so I use Core Worlds campaign instead (no lag, no problems).

Ah I see. I did some performance logging afterwards and found that my computer causes the game to shut down because insufficient memory exists. My temporary solution to fix my problem was to close all non-essential processes (for example explorer) and load one of my backup saves which worked perfectly. I have also noticed whilst playing then on that saving the game without selecting a planet has made it easier to load with less crashes to the desktop when trying to load in the future. This may be able to assist you temporarily however the long term solution is to increase your memory space if applicable.

Your PC can not handle GFFA (mine too). Try other scenarios.

Standard. Put the files into Mods\Phoenix_Rising_v1.2 folder in your SWFOC folder. Then made/use a shortcut to run a game.
You can create batch file in SWFOC folder with this line:
start /B swfoc MODPATH=Mods\Phoenix_Rising_v1.2

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…
