The Empire had just destroyed Alderaan. Vader, after years of training and preparation, believed it was now time to move against the Emperor. Vader made a surprise visit to Coruscant and rendezvoused with his Sith apprentice, Darth Acris. They moved quickly and in an epic struggle with Palpatine, Vader emerged victorious as the new Emperor. Acris became his second-in-command. Vader moved quickly to consolidate his power and legitimize his rule, winning the support of nearly the entire Empire through fear and admiration. He also won much support by personally leading his men into battle fearlessly and by taking an active role in running the day-to-day functions of the Empire, unlike Palpatine who had greatly isolated himself from the galaxy. He also continued the massive military buildup of the Empire. Due to this, many new people flocked to the Imperial cause signing up for the Imperial Military and Administration. The Empire was swarmed with patriots willing to lay down their lives for the Empire.
Mara Jade at first opposed the two but soon relented due to her love for Darth Acris, and the two wed. Tarkin respected Vader enough to accept him as leader, knowing how powerful and intelligent Vader was. Vader, even though he took the throne by coup, was accepted as the legitimate Emperor - not by all however. The equally power hungry Dark Jedi Jerec, using the Dark Side and cunning, won support of some Imperial commanders and established his own evil Empire, named the Grand Imperium. He was joined by Zsinj, Kaine, and an assortment of other Imperials, including the Inquisitor Tremayne. He declared war on Vader and prepped his forces for battle.
The Rebel Alliance saw this new Imperial Civil War as an opportunity to keep the Imperials attention elsewhere and their forces divided. The last remaining Jedi, Luke Skywalker, still hoped for a restoration of the Old Order. Their hope and confidence boosted hugely, the Rebels were now ready to set up and dig in for this war of galactic liberation.
But other powers now saw their chance at galactic domination. With the Emperor gone, Prince Xizor could now duke it out with the Dark Lord for control. He began pooling all his resources into an all-out war with the Empire, although he retained his legal (and illegal) business operations, after all, the Black Sun was a crime syndicate. He was joined by the Dark Lord Darth Maul, who escaped Sidious' grasp and once more went into hiding, but now saw his chance for revenge. The Hutt Cartel once dominated the galaxy and with strong leadership and immense wealth from piracy, they could again. Thousands of years ago, the Mandalorians were the most feared warriors in the galaxy who fought glorious battles against the Jedi and Sith. They built a powerful empire of their own. Why not again? Could a new Mandalore reunite the scattered clans and roaming mercenaries into a professional and deadly Mandalorian force.
Many challenges lie ahead for the new Emperor. Even with an unmatched and loyal military, the task will be daunting. Can Vader reunite the fractured Empire while holding off Pirates, Rebels, and Mandalorians on multiple fronts? Can he preserve order in the inevitable chaos and return peace to the galaxy. Can he achieve the ancient Sith dream of total galactic control? Or will you try and restore so-called freedom to the galaxy as the Rebels or create your own empire as one of the other factions? This is Vader's New Order - Empire Surrounded!

Call me a traitor, but I'm enjoying more content from the new canon more than I thought. Just finished up the novel Tarkin and it was really fantastic and would highly recommend it to all Star Wars fans, especially if you love the Empire like I do. Anyway - to start new, planets and custom maps have found their way into the mod. I've done my best to create a galaxy that meshes the new canon and old EU as well as I can and still leave an enjoyable experience.

-Jakku (new added)

-Jedha (replaces Helska IV)

-Scarif (replaces Makeb)

-Malachor (replaces Thule)

-Murkhana (replaces Jabiim)

-Takodana (replaces Boz Pity)

The exact galactic position, as far as I know, for the planets Scarif and Jedha have not been revealed yet so I placed them in a suitable position. If anyone knows more details on where they may be in the galaxy please let me know.

General Tagge has replaced Ysanne Isard and Governor Adelhard has joined the ranks of the Imperium.

I've added Jyn Erso to the list of heroes for the rebellion. At the moment she is using a model of Jan Ors (because that is essentially who she is) and lacks a proper model. I am considering adding Director Krennic but if he dies in Rogue One he wouldn't fit into the storyline and he doesn't have a model that would at least match him for the game. The former rule applies to Jyn but I already added her in so why not. If Krennic manages to survive Rogue One I will likely add him in later. It would be great to add in Death Troopers as well but I would like a proper model for them which isn't available yet.

I have also changed some descriptions to better fit new canon descriptions, but nothing too crazy. Don't worry, this mod still overwhelmingly fits the EU.

For Skirmish I've hit a speed bump getting the Mandos and Hutts added. It's apparently really more complicated than it may seem. Adding the units for the Imperium isn't working at the moment. All that seems to add are the buildings but they won't let me do anything with them. But I'll try to keep you posted on that.

I have some ideas

Commander Jun Sato (Space only) commandes modified Pelta class "Pheonix Home" and launches minor Hero A-Wing squadron, phoenix squadron...or a heavily armed CR90 with blue paintjob?

If Onderon is in the mod, buildable hero Saw Guerra, which builds Onderon Troopers if he orbits the planet, and they act like large commando squads?

Jan Dodonna a land hero too

Jyn Orso?

I also have many other ideas...

There are some good heroes but we can't have a ton. All the factions have ten or more already. And Jyn Erso is in the game right now.

Saw Gueretta (orbits planet, builds troops) - Onderon
Cham (if he in orbit, builds Tweilks) - Ryloth
Sato - Corellia
