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.

I mean in the pictures I have really only seen the Viscount
and some other things like the Old Republic hammer head being used. Why not give them some droid units? I know this is all fanon pretty much but even in the real timeline when the first Death Star was being built the rebels had the old droid carriers (the one with the big ball in the middle. I forgot the name).

That would be the Lucrehulk and I may add them to the Rebel arsenal other than that the Rebels have several new units not seen in the pics including inf. and ships. It will be a surprise for the release.

I'll bet this is an alternate timeline. Did Vader kill the Emperor before A New Hope, or during Empire? I would like to see an alternate Luke who is "starting off" his training, rather than being an all powerful jedi, and could you use higher quality models?

It is an alternate timeline. Vader killed the Emperor shortly after Alderaan was destroyed in New Hope. Luke is still a Jedi, Vader has a different apprentice who's real name is not stated. And we are working to make and get what better models we can.

You should put Galen Marek in the mod, because in the cannon storyline, he was the 'secret apprentice', not Darth Ceazer. According to the Force Unleashed of course.

I'd like to see a Luke that evolves with the rebellion, he could start off with the rebel pilot suit and a blaster, but ends with his jedi robes and a lightsaber. Seeing as it fits your description of when the emperor was killed.

Well the mod really started when Vader killed the Emperor but if you read the timeline, the campaign you play doesn't actually start 'till almost 3 years after that. Now I in the planned scenarios, your suggestion can come to life if I decide to make one that revolves around Vader first coming to power, then I could use the old Luke.
