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.

Hey rhys, i dont want to sound needy, but for the next beta could you release it for the trade fed?

Also i have a quick question, in the later versions, will you include an option to enable all subfactions? so you can build atat's, and shadow guards? or is that impossible

anywho, amazing work, cant wait to see the next release! good work

We've got a schedule in place already as to what order the civs will be rolled out in.

As for being able to use every Sub-Faction at once, well, that would kind of defeat the purpose of having them to begin with, wouldn't it?

Hello Gen Rhys, I downloaded the beta. I tried to run the EF instaler but it did not work, it said that MSv11c0 or something like that was missing. Someone told me all I had to do was download the game and extract it to my game fle, I did that but Galactic battlegrounds ex2 did not come up. I really want to play this mod but I don't know what could be wrong.Can you please help me.

I know, 5 can take on an AT-AT, I feel that is a large load of crap, in movies and other games there weak and easier than these OP things.
