...The Imperial Remnant...
The galaxy has fallen into disorder in the years after Endor. Can anyone take the remains of the once-great Empire and restore peace?

Keep in mind that what you see represented in the trailer is still from a work-in-progress, and that a lot of stuff (especially particle effects) will be or even has already been updated between filming and release.

I can't wait for this to come out and see your take on SW in Sins. I've been itching to play a SW mod for Sins but have played SoGE to death.

Been tracking this mod for awhile now; can't wait until it is released! I'm hopeful it'll be just as enjoyable as Thrawn's Revenge, if not more.

I have a queastion, will you guys try to make the galaxay more realistic, like haveing more stars instead of one or five? Also adding moons to gas giants so they can be colonizable?

There will only be one "Star" per scenario, and it'll be the black hole at the center of the galaxy. We have absolutely no intention to try to put in a different star for every system and make them actual stars; for one thing, it would double the amount of objects per scenario and mean we can only have half as many actual planets, and that half of them (the stars) wouldn't really serve any purpose except to sit there and force people to not be able to jump directly to planets (is it more interesting or useful to have 100 planets, or 50 planets and have two planets for every planet).

It isn't more realistic, either; nobody ever cared about the actual stars in Star Wars, all that mattered were the planets, except with the Sun Crusher. You can't even really DO anything with them, they're uncontrollable and would just take up space. The AI in Sins is awful at dealing with multi-star scenarios as it is, so can you imagine making them have to deal with like 50? Which would, incidentally, also essentially become the maximum number of actual planets since when you go over 100 you start to see performance issues and half of that is now non-interactive stars. It also means everything is a travel node, so you can get anywhere from anywhere which removes a huge crucial element of the strategy to Sins, and instead of removing one of the most toxic and frustrating mechanics of the vanilla game, the Vasari insta-travel crap that essentially renders any defense moot, becomes the norm.

In future releases we may add a Gas Giant planet type that also has a colonizeable moon, but usually for those we just use the moon itself for that planet (ie Yavin IV) since having the gas giant is kind of pointless. We tend to use the Gas Giant planet type only for planets like Pesitiin or Bespin, where the only thing of note was the Gas Giant itself and there wasn't actually a planet or moon that was known to be colonized.

Technically you could say it's more realistic because there was a sun there and therefore it's realistic to have the sun sitting there, but you could say the exact same thing about actual planets; there are technically thousands more than we could ever hope to add in in any scenario. The goal is to pick the things that would have the most impact in a given scenario, and the things that would actually be relevant to commanders and political entities in Star Wars, and there's never a case where having Malastare and its sun is a better representation of the Star Wars galaxy than having Malastare and whatever planet would have to be removed in order to put its sun in.

DoV didn't have the resources to finish, and was never super far into development. We're essentially in beta; the majority of what's left is finishing up some tech trees and abilities, plus icons and a bit of polish. Very different situations.
