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!

In order to continually find ways to immerse oneself in the game I have now given the Rebellion and the Empire different options for worlds.

Each option allows for different building options.

EMPIRE

The Empire has the option to Occupy, Annex, or Oppress a planet.

Occupy: - A temporary Imperial occupation. The Empire does not disturb daily life and merely uses the world as a base or place to get resources.

Builds - Mining Facility, Shield Generator, Orbital Mining Facility, Magnapulse Cannon, Cantina, Hutt Palace, Imperial Outpost

Annex - a normal Imperial member world. The building options are balanced.

- Builds - Barracks, Light Factory, Imperial Palace, Inquisitorius, Officer Academy, Turbolasers, Shield Generator, AARC, Research Facility, Long Range Scanner

Oppress - a world ruled under martial law. Choose if desiring the ability to build military infrastructure.

Builds - Barracks, Heavy Factory, Advanced Factory, Hypervelocity Gun, Turbolasers, Shield Generator, Gravity Well Generator

ALLIANCE

The Rebellion has the option to Occupy, Ally, or Militarize a planet.

Occupy - a temporary Rebel occupation. The Rebellion does not bother daily life, merely using the planet as a small base and resource gathering outpost

Builds - Cantina, Hutt Palace, Shield Generator, Infiltrator Facility, Mining Facility, Turbolasers, Orbital Mining Facility.

Ally - The world has decided to join the Alliance in the fight. Their government is still their own however and the military presence is not strong.

Builds - Barracks, Ion Cannon, Shield Generator, Mining Facility, Light Factory, Bothan Listening Post

Militarize - this world is a military base and depot for the Alliance. Most of the troops will be recruited here, especially the heavy equipment.

Builds - Ion Cannon, Shield Generator, Turbolasers, Barracks, Heavy Factory, Officer Academy

The AOR system for some units and many vehicles is still in place.

I may in the future add options for the other factions, save the Black Sun due to their use of the Corruption system. For now however it will only apply to the Empire and Rebellion.

Love this mod so far! I think it's an interesting concept by far and i like the ideas you've come up with. Though obviously the Alpha is just a first look at whats to come i was wondering if you're going to add in some inquisitors and or maybe some new troopers like the Shore trooper or death trooper, etc.?

p.s. the mod BattleFront Commander has some good storm trooper models, they're from the Force Unleashed mostly and from the new or old battlefront games (for the GCW campaign though) i don't know if they'd be willing to let you use those models but it would sure polish up the game a bit more, just a suggestion! here's a link to that mod incase you wanna see their models:

I have discussed use of models from that mod and am using the new stormtroopers from it. I would love to include Death troopers as well they are awesome.
