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.

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.
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.
