Expanding Fronts is a massive modification for Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds aimed to breathe life back into the classic LucasArts strategy game by adding various new units, features, and gameplay elements. Each of the 8 civilizations is being split into various Sub-Factions that specialize in unique combat roles including Infantry, Armor, Aircraft, Navy, Support, and Economics. Each of these Sub-Factions will have a full roster of new units and technologies available to them. In addition, the Scenario Editor is being filled with hundreds of new units, buildings, effects, and objects to allow campaign and scenario designers more freedom than ever before.

Some kind of terrain and scenery pack would be cool, from the pictures.

I doubt there will be a full update anytime soon, but a patch that adds a bunch of the terrain and objects seen in the images would be nice.

I have a couple of questions.

1): Is General Grievous going to be added as a Hero for the Confederacy? Along with Assaj Ventress?

2): Is the Confederacy going to get remodeled buildings? I find it a bit strange that all their structures are based off of one part in Episode II.

And I was wondering if you could point me in the right direction for modding SWGB, where do I start? What tools do I use? Do you know any reliable tutorials that I could use? I could probably figure out the rest on my own.

1. Probably, but it won't be for a while.

2. We've thought about it, but with the size of our current staff it's likely a waste of time and effort that would be better spent on other things.

Some of it was made specifically for the project, but most of it is a compilation of previously created mods on HeavenGames.

One thing I noticed is that your mod doesn't replace anything in the game, unlike nearly every mod I've seen on Heavengames, how do you do that?

This project is nowhere near finished. We've stated numerous times that the Empire is the only stable civilization, and the campaigns/AI have not yet been modified to adapt to all of the changes.
