"You must go where Revan did, into the Unknown Regions, where the Sith, the true Sith, wait in the dark for the great war that comes..."
Just a brief progress report on whats happening. Sorry for the wait, my copy of windows crashed, but everything concerning the mod was able to be saved. One new laptop latter and we are back in business.

OK I have a few things I want to cover in this update so bare with me.
Unfortunately 501st_Captain_Rex is unable to map for us due to his commitments to other mods. Good news is Avenger2 has agreed to help me with the mod, and he has been producing some great maps that I will have uploaded some pic as soon as possible. I'm really pleased to have him working on the mod, and if you guys like his stuff half as much as I do you're in for a treat.
Secondly, I was able to find a small, public mod that rearranges the planets in the galactic map to their cannon placements. It is the first release of _237th_SC_Com_Bly's 'New Galaxy Mod'. I have added several new planets into the galactic map that is provided with the mod. These planets include, but are not limited to Dromund Kass, Trython, Rakata Prime, Malachor V, Duxn and Ord Mantell. As I said before, our new mapper has been working tirelessly to create new and improved maps for these planets and more, both in space and land.
Thirdly, I am codding in small, unplayable factions to the galactic map. I don't want to give too much away, but i can assure you, it's gunna be epic. If the player captures a minor factions capital world, that player will gain access to that factions shipyards and soldiers. It will also depend on what faction the player is playing as. For example, if you play as the Sith Empire, and capture the planet Mandalore, you can then build Mandalorian troopers and Mandalorian battle cruisers. You will also get Mandalore as a hero. That's all I'm saying for now, I don't want to give too much more away just yet.
Finally, i still need someone who can skin, or convert models to ALO format. If we can't do this, the simple truth is this mod may well die. I really don't want that to happen, so even if you can't do this, ask around, see if anyone knows someone who could do this for us. I would be really great-full if someone can do this for us. Post below or PM me with any news.
I think that covers it for now, Stay tuned I'll have some screens up soon
