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.

THANK YOU


It's been a long and difficult road, and we are immensely pleased to finally be able to put out a new public build. We thank everybody for sticking with us and being patient over the past few years. May the Force be with you all.


BUT THAT'S NOT ALL


So, unbeknownst to us, we picked a very interesting day to release Expanding Fronts. As it just so happens, the planets have aligned, and our launch just so happens to coincide with Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds launching on Steam. Very unexpected, but very welcome and long overdue. Also of note is that SWGB, alongside a handful of other LucasArts classics is included in the latest Star Wars Humble Bundle. If you, or anyone you feel like conquering the galaxy with is missing it, there's no better time to grab it and EF! We'll see you on the Battlegrounds.

UNDER CONSTRUCTION


As much progress as we've made, we are still looking for additional hands to help put Expanding Fronts together. As you might see in the beta, we've had to use numerous placeholder units to fill the Zann infantry roster as we are still lacking infantry modelers and animators. If you have experience in 2D art, 3D art/animation, Random Map/AI scripting, or general editing experience with the AoK/SWGB Genie engine, and would like to contribute to the Expanding Fronts project, feel free to contact the project head Gen_Rhys_Dallows. Alternatively, you can post a message in our project thread at SWGB.HeavenGames.com

If anyone can help me I've run across an annoying glitch. I cannot, for some bizarre reason, research Stormtrooper Corps. It does not show up in my command center build options.

Research every normal technology at your command center first, then all four sub-factions will appear instead of just the three. Bugged me for a while and then the idea popped up in my head and it worked.

Hey, I can handle the Genie Editor quite well for my gaming purposes. I've been working on it since 2012 as a hobby, making the original SWGB more dinamic and changing some things that didn't make sense to me, like the grenade trooper and bombers dealing 1hp to troops. Made the mech destroyer more powerful, dealing great damage to troopers and strike mechs, as if it was a tank agains soldiers and light vehicles. These kind of things.
I lost the data 2 years ago but I still remember how to make some difference on gameplay.
I would love to work on a mod.

Are the episode 3 clones included? and will the episode 7 First Order be implemented in some way once more is known about it?

Several new variations of clone units have been added to the scenario editor.

As far as Any VII+ stuff goes, we have no plans to seriously focus on any significant content for the time being - it would only stack onto our already extensive workload. Most we can do is toss in the occasional thing, like the BB-8 droid pictured in the last article.

I think the phase II clones could be nice as a upgrade on the latest tech level for the republic. I guess you handled it like that.
