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!

Beta Testing

I am only looking for serious guys, this mod likely still has bugs and I need to find them. This isn't only to have fun with (I mean part of it is of course but I want to get the bugs out). Whoever would like to, step forward and do your patriotic Imperial duty to help this mod get released.

I'm also considering adding Jakku as a planet and perhaps instead of Jerec leading the Imperium, it could be the mysterious Snoke. Although not much is known about him he, according to the new canon *SPOILER* lived through the time of the prequels and originals, and was waiting for the right time to rise and take power. Now that Palpatine is dead in VNO - would Snoke rise up against Vader believing it was his time? It's up to you guys to voice your opinion on the subject.

How do you gain the ability to build old republic and CIS ships in galactic conquest?

They aren't available in the early beta. CIS ships will be available to the crime syndicates and some to the Rebels but Old Republic ships will not be used.

thank you for the answer although i guess i didn't really clarify the question. The menu screen shows a battle with Trade Fed. Lucrehulk-class battleships and Republic Venator-class Star Destroyers. I also get access to some CIS ground and space units in Galactic Conquest and a bigger selection of Empire ships in one-on-one battles but not in GC so i guess what i was asking was more of a two-part question, is there any way to access these ships in GC or at least the ships in one-on-one battle on GC?

Okay in the beta the Zann Consortium should have access to the Lucrehulks and to build the Venators you have to buy Kuat Drive Yards at Kuat of course. That will give you access to most of the Empire's destroyers
