Republic at War is a total conversion modification for Star Wars Empire at War Forces of Corruption. The mod replaces the Empire with the Galactic Republic and the Rebel Alliance with the Confederacy. Republic at War focuses heavily on the theatrical films but also contains content from the Clone Wars cartoon series as well as the expanded universe. Players can re-enact various Clone War campaigns such as the Outer Rim Sieges. Players will have the choice to fight as either the CIS or the Republic and wage war for control of the galaxy. Realism is key and players will have unprecedented control over how and where they fight. Push forward with an entire clone legion such as the 501st or 212th or overwhelm your opponent with a seemingly endless number of B1 battledroids. The choice is yours. There are also a number of expansions planned that will add new (as well as polish existing) content.
On my side, I'm done with my tasks on our list. This gives me some time to spend on my bachelors thesis. However working on that a full day doesn't make much fun, so I decided to start a few side projects. In this picture you can see an early stage render of a new intro of Republic at War. I can not promise this will be ready for version 1.2.
This intro will be animated completely with Maya using our models from the mod. At the moment the sequence is planned to run about 15 seconds. It will replace the intro where the logos of Republic at War and Imperial Assault II fly in. I think only a few of you watched this more than once completely, so we think a shorter video, which make fun to watch is the better option. I can not speak for a storage waste of the old video because this will rendered at 1080p and for sure much larger ;)
