"Over a millenia ago, my people waged a war that nearly consumed the galaxy. We didn't fight for patriotism or politics and were not driven by anger or greed. We fought because the squabbling Jedi, Sith and the factions that followed them cast the entire galaxy into a perpetual chaos. Their diluted and self-righteous aspirations led them to war again, and again. We fought for glory and to bring balance back; to restore order. Unfortunately, my ancestors failed in that mission. There is a difference though, between them and me; I don't fail.

Now it's the eve of a new generation. The Empire, the culmination of centuries of manipulation and corruption, has been defeated by...children. The New Republic likes to believe that they can sit behind the controls but in truth, their utopian ideals are laced with shortcomings and naivete. In spite of all they have accomplished, war still pervades and the chaos that planted itself so long ago, continues to thrive as the factions of the Empire split and the New Republic loses its grasp on everything it so recently gained.

It is time for my people to march again into the dynamic of the crumbling galaxy. It's time to give rise to a new order; the rise of the Mandalorians."

After several months of hard work, a surprise (and very welcome) Steam update, and time to judge, I am happy to announce the winner of the Rise of the Mandalorians mapping contest!

This talented map maker not only showed their skill for making a playable map in terms of balance but also their eye for design, capturing the feel of their chosen world very well. So, without further ado, the winner of the mapping contest is:

Mirsh Mirsh


Mirsh's planet of choice was Concord Dawn, the rural farming planet of the Mandalorians and once home to Jango Fett.

Concord Dawn - Wookiepedia

It was here that the first seeds of a future vision for the Mandalorians would begin to take shape. This pivotal world is crucial to the story and evolution of both Fetts and the people they influenced within Mandalorian culture. While it does have cities, much of the planet is vast agricultural plots or simply "wild". What a great choice Mirsh and well done on the map indeed. Congratulations!

*Pictures of Mirsh's map will be posted in the Images section at a later time*

I would also like to take this time to announce some honorable mentions who's maps were also quite well done:

These three mappers chose Onderon, Dxun, and Dxun respectively. I appreciate their talent, hard work and participation!

While only the winner's map can be featured in the mod, each of these four individuals will receive the limited-edition Rise of the Mandalorians complete game box, disk and insert after the mod is released.

Thank you to all who participated and congratulations to the users above!

So when I open and play the game everything looks fine except for the background. for example. I'm playing space skirmish, the astroids are there, the ships are there, lasers, structures everything but the space behind all that is just slime green. like really really bright green. I have no clue how to fix that. I'm not tech smart.

Hi, here is what i did to avoid the green nightmare in the steam version. Go to the RotM folder and locate the shaders folder. Once you have it delete all archives inside shaders folder, leave it blank. Now donwnload and copy/paste this in Shaders folder:
Moddb.com

It should be: RotM/Shaders/MeshBumpLight.fxo

It worked for me and i can play this superb mod without issues, even in multiplayer. Good luck.

This issue is because of the Steam patch. The old version of the mod is not compatible with Steam. The new version will be.

The current version should be compatible with GOG as it's really the same as the disk version.
