This is the full standalone 3.0 version of the Rise of the Crime Lords mod for Star Wars: Empire at War - Forces of Corruption. You have to install this...
last update 30.7.2014.
*Five playable factions (Zann Consortium, Rebel Alliance, Galactic Empire, Black sun Pirates and The Hutt Cartel) + 2 idle (Ohnaka Gang and Mandalorian Militia)
*New Music (Start menu, Hutt and Black Sun specific backgrounds)
*Campaigns for all tastes: all five factions, without hutts, then without underworld and then just rebel and empire (Foc and Eaw updated campaigns and one original)
*Two new planets (Falleen - Xizor's homeworld, Florrum, restored Rattatak and Trandosha - Bossk's homeworld)
*Replaced some Hero Icons with more realistic (in cases of icons created from pictures of computer generated Heroes with screenshots from movies) or by better ones in my opinion.
*ssdcommander's spacestation system
*Replaced some Unit names with correct/complete ones
*Enhanced Vader's and Sidious Force powers (whirlwind and lightning damages everything and telekinesis can be applied to vehicles and heroes - except force sensitives and droids) I did that because frankly no bounty hunter or smuggler has any chance against a Jedi hero or Sith Hero and this way enhances the gameplay.
*Icons from my icon packs with many unreleased ones
*Fighters rescaled to 75%
*Planets rescaled to 75%
*Multiple tweaks and fixes

In order to finish the v3.0 of the mod, I will need the services of a modeler. There are several planned additions to the mod that include these units:
You can make these free release or you can join as the mod's official modeler. The choice is yours.
Highest Rated (3 agree) 10/10
A truly fantastic mod. Adds two fully playable factions that might be a bit lacking in units, but still playable nonetheless. Still a few bugs but I imagine they'll be fixed. I recommend playing it.
