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 are being reworked and enhanced to make each feel more unique and authentic to the universe, while maintaining the classic Battlegrounds gameplay. In addition, the Scenario Editor is being filled with hundreds of new units, buildings, effects, triggers, and objects to allow campaign and scenario designers more freedom than ever before.

BUILDING YOUR GALAXY



Since our launch in March, we have been hard at work building even more new content for Expanding Fronts. This time, we have decided to focus specifically on expanding the Scenario Editor, allowing level creators more freedom and options than ever before. With hundreds of new buildings and props, and advanced trigger effects, players can create nearly anything, from racing games, to MOBAs, to complex RPG systems, all within Galactic Battlegrounds.


NEW PROPS


Countless new props encompassing a wide variety of locations have been added. From the frozen corridors of Echo Base, to the exotic underwater Otah Gunga, you can design on a level of detail never before seen in Battlegrounds!


ENHANCED TRIGGER EFFECTS


Our proudest addition to Expanding Front's Editor, the 'Change Object Data' effect, allows you to alter nearly any property of any unit in-game, without the use of complex modding or genie-editing tools. Through the use of a single trigger and short text entries, you can do anything; change projectiles, range, fire rate, unit graphics, and more.


HELP WANTED


Despite all of the progress we've made with the editor, we are still severely short-staffed in one major role: 3D animation. Without skilled people that can model and animate characters, we are unable to add the plethora of new infantry, animals, monsters, heroes, and even entire civilizations we have planned for Expanding Fronts. We need your help to make all of this possible. If you, or anybody you know has the skills, and is interested in helping the project, please let us know by contacting the project head Gen_Rhys_Dallows. Alternatively, you can post a message in our project thread at SWGB.HeavenGames.com

Menus for both games are contained within interfac.drs (and interfac_x1) in the data folder.

To open these, you'll need a modding software. I use Turtle Pack, ( Aok.heavengames.com ) though there are others.

Browse through the drs and find the graphic you're looking for, then extract the slp. From the slp you can extract the bitmap(s) and edit them with Photoshop. Note that the genie engine is limited to 256 color palettes, which can also be found in the drs files (bin/bina files). Most menus don't use the standard palette, so you'll have to hunt for the right one.

I would like to help out, but I do not know how to make animations, nor do I know how to make 3D models, for games that use the Genie engine.

Well the mod works fine, thank you all who put they're efforts into creating this. But, could anyone tell me how they got this game to work on Windows 10 64 Bit? I know this is a question for some sort of forums but they never work. I've tried everything on any site: compatibility, Hardware Acceleration, patches, ect.
Specs:
Win 64 Bit
Intel Core 4130
Radeon R9 380
16 GB RAM

So just to ask the basics, this adds things from Revenge of the Sith and The Force Awakens? And apparently something too? Am I right or wrong?
