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 not between the Empire and Rebellion, but between the Empire and Republic. In order to make things a little more realistic, the Zann Consortium is also now equipped with old, abandoned Confederacy equipment.

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.

Depends on how you define 'alive'. I've had thoughts about a v5.3 and recently tried a re-built version of the mod, but it's not performing the way I want it to, very unstable.

Unlikely. The problem would be that the Republic would end up with too many Jedi heroes - they really need to be more diverse. I'd prefer to add a Jedi Leia hero.

I always enjoyed this mod for the particular reason of fighting as the Republic vs the Empire. It would actually be more fine if it was just those two since the presence of a Rebel Alliance feels like it diminish the Republic a bit as the good guys. I took some time way back and actually rewrote all the character profiles to fit a backstory I had in mind, which was very fun (I have since lost that file). For some reason, I would've loved to see Padme as a Hero on the Republic side to have her kick *** with the rest of the gang. Really like the mod.

Thanks for the kind words. :-) In the alternate timeline of the mod the Rebel Alliance still sprang up whilst the Republic remnants were rebuilding their strength. But as our heroes were off with the Republic, nastier elements of the Rebellion gained control, leading to a more brutal and less 'nice' version of the Rebellion.

As for Padme, as the mod follows the official timeline up to and including RotS, Padme is still dead.

None at all. However I've recently gotten EaW/FoC Gold on Steam so might have to update it anyway. I've been thinking of doing a bit of an overhaul of the mod that MIGHT help with the AI issues too.

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!
