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.

right so ive been playing this mod for god knows how long (over 700 hours total in the game since i bought it about 2 years ago. of them, only about 120 or so hours arent with this mod) and it presents me with a paradox. on the one hand, that the team behind this has done the job that they have is nothing short of amazing. on the other hand, that the kind of effort that WASNT put in by the ORIGINAL developers is kinda saddening. just one main warning for anyone that downloads this. well 3. 1, you might get hooked. 2, if you plan on adjusting some aspects of the mod, go to the forums on the mod site. trust me, you will save yourself some hardship and time, etc. 3. be patient, lol. there is a LOT of content that has been added, almost too much for the engine to handle. to put it in perspective, its kinda like going from Counter Strike 1.6 to Crysis. there are 180 buildable units in the fighter-sized category for GC. thats not even including non-buildable starting units, or pirate/illegal/antique/other modified units, or units from the CSA, who arent playable in GC at this time. and thats not even half i think of the total buildable units. lol. there are so many units, that one of the main goals in 1.3 is to try to trim that number down.

was running out of room. most issues that you will find with this mod have more to do with the original game not really being designed with this kind of addition in mind. things like the UI, and a few bugs inherent in the engine are simply unable to be fixed without intervention from the developers.
if i can give one major piece of advice, that would be to go to their own forums and get assistance there. most issues you might encounter, odds are someone else has had, and the solution will likely already be there, and the team and community there are quite helpful

Thanks very much for the kind words! You're certainly right that the forum is the best place to go for advice and up to date information. We're currently hard at work on the next version of the mod, and we're hoping to alleviate some of the issues that players have been telling us about.

If you are talking about the space skirmish AI, it doesn't work very well at all because we haven't changed it. If you are talking about the galactic conquest AI, make sure you don't have any mods installed like RaW that put files into the main FoC folder. Otherwise, try re-installing the mod.

I'm having a problem. Every time I try to start a galactic conquest the game freezes. Skirmish works fine, it's only the galactic conquest. I have a top of the line computer with windows 7. Anything I can do to fix this?

The game freezes because galactic conquests take a long time to load unfortunately. Even with a good PC you're looking at load times of ~3-5 minutes on the largest campaigns. They have a lot of ships! We're working on this issue though and it should be improved with the next release.

Land skirmish is disabled because it is not in any way balanced due to the changes we've made to combat. Space skirmish works, but not very well. Our focus is galactic conquest mode.

Okay how do you get this mod to work? I get the Phoenix rising load screen, then it goes black and it says "loading" with small letters at the bottom. Then it stays like that for uhm i dont know, i got annoyed after 6 minutes of waiting. I have steam, i installed it in the right corruption dir, ive checked and its located in the right folder. I am also using the exact launch option that i was told to use by the install program. 10 other foc mods work just fine on my pc. and this is on a clean install of eaw. Oh yeah and the 64 bit patch dont do crap for me, same **** happens.

You say it's a clean install; there's definitely no other mods installed? I understand that there are sometimes difficulties with the Steam install, but in this case I don't know what you need to change, I'm sorry.

malanthor Dec 17 2012, 7:53pm replied:

Yeah definitly a clean install. Its supposed to end up in the standard corruption/mods/phoenix rising directory right?
Because the auto install wants to put it somewhere else but im just thinking thats simply wrong, because when i tried it out i just got the standard game heh.

Yeah the installer doesn't currently recognise the Steam directory. The Steam install doesn't leave a registry path so we can't read that. Make sure the path you give the installer ends at the /corruption directory, you don't need to give /mods/phoenix rising

I'm sorry you can't get the mod to work. Hopefully in the future we can sort out the installer for steam users so this doesn't happen. Sorry :(

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…
