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 Caezar. They moved quickly and in an epic struggle with Palpatine, Vader emerged victorious as the new Emperor. Caezar 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 Caezar, 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 few remaining Jedi 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!

I know it has been a long time. I will do my best to finish the mod. Most everything is working but I have some models that need to be fixed up and maps. Custom battles still need to be done. But all the base content is in the game.

I wish I had more time to put into the mod but with college and other games and mods I can't devote a lot of time to the mod. It's a little more difficult because my team has disappeared on me completely. Not all the units I wanted added will be added, some have to be removed - mostly patch work is left.

So keep your heads up fans, hopefully this mod can be done in the next couple months.

Im just wondering one things. sure new units is great and inspiring to see all kinds of plethora of units. new maps is great and being able to use all new and exciting abilities is fun too. but i really gotta ask, when is someone going to finally release a mod for Star Wars Empire at War: Forces of Corruption, that adds more player slots and additional teams to fight? sure its fun to have mirror mode fighting empire vs empire. but having 3-way brawls just wont cut it anymore. newer games allow for anywhere from 4-10 separate opponents to face off, and this game is kinda behind choking on dust and ashes. if a mod or even an XML could be created that would allow for more players and/or teams to operate on maps, it would be an almighty improvement on a scale that would open up a multiverse number of doors for the next generation of the modding community to use. so i ask anyone and everyone to at least consider attempting such an endeavor.

Well I don't know about that, but at least now there is several factions to play as. 6 playable in skirmish and campaign, although I'm having problems getting the new factions workable in skirmish.

but the thing about factions is it gets somewhat boring if your not able to face all of them at the exact same time on a small map. GC is always fun, but again not all of the factions compete (most go off doing thier own thing or do nothing at all). if a skirmish map could be modified to be huge and support a gametype with 4+ players in a free-for-all gametype... mirror play wouldn;t be needed anmore as it would be too fun fighting all fo the factions at once.

I will look into that, but not until after the final release. I may feature it in a future patch if there ends up being some way to code it.

We are working on the final units (especially the heroes) and maps, getting permission for a few things. There isn't a whole lot left to do really.
