A conversion for 'Empire at War: Forces of Corruption', Return of the Clones is based on a what-if senario - what if parts of the old Republic had survived Order 66, leading to a civil war between the Empire and Republic. Meanwhile a grassroots Rebellion has started against the tyranny of the Empire, whilst Tyber Zann and his Consortium salvage old Confederacy droid, vehicles, and starships in order to make his own grab for power.

RotC on Steam

News 5 comments

Hi all,

Okay no this isn't an installer, though that will be something I'll look at, simply instructions on how to get RotC to work on Steam.

1. Copy the 'Mods/RotC' folder to your EaW/FoC steam directory, ending in '"\Steam\steamApps\common\Star Wars Empire at War\corruption". There should now be four folders - Data, MSS32, Recordings, and Mods. If this isn't accurate, you've pasted the folder in the wrong place.

2. Open Steam, find your EaW/FoC copy.
- Right-click on 'Empire at War: Gold Edition'
- click on 'Properties'
- click on 'Set Launch Options'
- paste this into the field: swfoc MODPATH=Mods\RotC

Now whenever you play FoC on Steam, RotC will start. Yes this is somewhat of an annoying process, and yes it would be great if another method existed. It is more difficult than with the retail version but as far as I'm aware this is the best available at present.

Hey Darth_Windu, any idea on if the 5.3 update will fix the Rebellion AI as they don't do anything in Skirmish or Galactic Conquest???

Probably not, mostly because I don't know what's causing the issue. There is an alternative I'm experimenting with, not sure it'll work though.

Thanks for the reply buddy. I hope it does work as I would like my Republic troops to fight against the Rebels and the Empire in one games. Would make for an awesome war.

Not until, at the very earliest, the middle of August unfortunately. I'm super busy at the moment and just haven't had a chance to work on the mod for a while. I am committed to getting a v5.3 out though!

So I had some space unit ideas for 5.3, I think they would make cool additions:

Republic
-Z-95 Headhunter
-Pelta-class Frigate (I'd like to have it in skirmish, and it should be armed, if lightly)
-Mandator-class Star Dreadnought (1/2 price of Executor?)

Empire
-Vindicator-class Heavy Cruiser
-Executor-class Star Dreadnought (I forget if this is in GC, but I know it's not in skirmish).

Also, could the Imperial-class Star Destoyer get some more weapons? It's pretty badly outclassed by the Venator.

Hi DGO, thanks for the suggestions. :-)

The Republic already has Z-95's, so that's an easy one to do! I won't add the Mandator though, mostly because I don't think it fits with how I want the Republic to play. They have heavy units, but the Empire really is the faction that takes it to extremes.

The Empire does have the Executor, but only in GC and as a hero unit. I actually think I need to beef it up too, it gets destroyed a bit too easily at present. But again I'd prefer to not make it a buildable unit just because it would be so over-powered. Something I'll consider though.

I don't think I'll add the Vindicator just because I don't think it's had much exposure, plus I'm adding a new Imperial cruiser to fulfil basically the same duties

Sounds good. I hope 5.3 goes smoothly, I absolutely love this mod, and I honestly think it's far better than RaW. I love Republic vs Empire, and your mod does it best.

This is a very cool mod
It definitely deserves a nine. It is great if you are looking to play as the republic. It has a lot of changes in the rebellion and many of the rebellion heroes are now republic heroes. Although this mod doesnt have the CIS, it still keeps the other three Factions from FOC.
Overall really fun game if you are looking to play as the Republic!
