I am stunned. Will any faction in particular use this, or will it just be buildable at Yag'dhul?

The Givin lean more to the Hutt affiliation, for they believe the fool hardy Galactic Alliance cannot clearly see the math in the sheer number of invading forces. Logic tells them to side with those who are aligned with the invaders.

and now the clone wars era ships enter in against the vong. Will we see any more units from the clone wars such as for example a group of super battle droids.....

We are not attempting to fill the mod with Clone Wars units. A battleship can remain in active service for some time. USA battleships are built off of technology from the 1920's and even though built in 1942, still remain in active service today.

A space battleship can last much longer. The Wavecrest was superiorly engineered by the Givin, and still proves to be a worthy foe.

the venator were used well into the vong war so that just proves that if the design is effective it will be in service a long time

Venators were all scrapped and decommissioned. There were no mention of any Venators in the novels. They will not be in the mod.

I'd like the sauce on that - the Heavy Assault Cruiser dates back to the old republic but is still in service. As for the Venator being scrapped... No way. Weapon Specs:

"The armament of a single Venator-class Star Destroyer consisted of eight DBY-827 heavy dual turbolaser turrets, two medium dual turbolaser cannons, fifty-two point-defense dual laser cannons or turbolasers,[14] and four heavy proton torpedo tubes.[8]"

While not as well armed as more modern ships - it could have been easily upgraded and retrofitted. Though I understand you already have plenty to work on.

There are thousands of venators in the galaxy. Some still served in the empire, private defense forces and pirates. They lasted for more than a hundred years into legacy. I highly doubt that not one faction or any faction that wasn't mentioned perhaps never used them. Whether this applies to the primary factions or private factions.

This is a good point, Daala had a modified Venator in her Maw Fleet, and two Venators assisted the Evacuation of Dac in the Legacy Comics. However I don't think that Venators should be buildable anymore--perhaps there may still be a few lying around in use by pirates or local defense fleets.

Interesting, I stand corrected. Thank you.

We will include some, but they will not be primary weapons for the main factions. Too many mods have Venators all over the place... we have more interesting things for you to play with...

Well, as far as real battleships go the main, and possibly only reason the ones we have are still from WW2 is because we never plan on making another battleship. Ever. The entire type of ship went obsolete when missiles and planes took control of the seas, and we actually have none in active service. The last remaining ones were the Iowa class, and they were decommissioned and released to maritime museums in the time after the cold war.

Of course that's not to say ships can't be effective in combat long after they were originally commissioned, because they can.

Are the Givin really a big faction or just a planet specific fleet?

At least a squadron of B-2 serviced the New republic during the war they were called the orange panthacs and effectively countered the vong fire breathers. BTW will this ship carry a starfighter complement?

well look at it, would you use, let's say, a WW1 Mark I tank in Gulf War? I suppose you wouldn't ;) CIS battledroids would be hopelesly outdated even during the events of the Galactic Civil War (Ep IV to Ep VI), and Yuuzhan Vong War begun roughly 26 years after The New Hope (Ep IV) ;)

I love the design of the ship. It seems to compact, but it's huge. Completely different from anything in vanilla EAW.
