Hey there,

So other than posting pictures of models( which do look great I must say) I suspect some of you will be wondering what we have been up to. We have a couple of projects on the go at the moment but as I am sure most of you are aware it is that time of year when exams are taking place all over the world at various levels of degrees. Real life does of course come first which is why myself and others from the team are busy studying hard and not doing much else really... :D

However we have not been too idle and once this busy period has passed we should have a nice healthy composition of shiny things for you to sample. This is an exciting period for all of us and as the model production is probably about 80% complete we can focus on other aspects such as rigging, texturing and unique gameplay experience. We are however along way from release so any help is greatly appreciated. This can be in any form, such as a "well done!" to a comprehensive talk on why a problem exists and how to fix it.

Also something which has recently come to my attention is the small amount of people within this community that seem to have a problem with this mod just existing and not being released by now. We work at our own pace and when we see fit to do so. It is not a race nor a comparison with anyone else's mod or add-on. I fully understand that some Members have colourful history with other Members which is understandable but it should not be turned into petty insults or jibes at anyone's work, whatever it maybe. I did not join this project to fight and argue about petty things. If I wanted to do that I would go back to junior school!!

So please, grow up and get on with your lives.

Not sure if everyone knows the why palpatine created the empire conspiracy but I found an older article on reddit that basically explained it and its beautiful.

Yes, This was Palpatine's plan all along.

It puts a new spin on what the dark and light side of the force can do. Palpatine had the ability to see the future, and control minds. He forsaw the Vong, and I believe the Vong were even mentioned once in early clone wars comics or maybe one of the episodes, albeit very briefly.

Not wanting to waste time with diplomacy, he manipulated people to prepare for what he thought was the greater good, but ultimately the Dark side manipulated him, and he was overcome with urge for power.

It paints the Jedi as being very naieve as well...

Fun fact: In the star wars video game KOTOR, the Vong were indirectly mentioned as a scout ship that attacked Canderous Ordo's fleet. It was the earliest known incident of the Yuuzhan Vong.

I personally believe that as well. I always felt like there was more to Palpatine's plan than just being power hungry, and I believe the Death Star served a duel purpose: To keep systems in line and to turn an entire world into an organic shipyard. Also it was proven that Palpatine knew of the invasion, and it was always possible that he had made direct contact with them.

It is the key piece to the puzzle:

Everything... from the KOTOR, through the Clone Wars, through the death of Palpatine, the destruction and destabilization of all the Worlords, EVERYTHING...

led up and prepared the way for Vong War.

It is the Critical Point of the entire history, bridging the transition into the Legacy Era

And Disney just could not see that.... grrr....

So what you're saying the most important part in galactic history was in fact the Vong war? I believe that to a point. I believe it was more of the Battle of Endor and the first death of Palpatine, just because at the end of the Battle of Endor, the balance of the force was restored.

Although on the other side of things, the Vong war was by far the most destructive war in galactic history, and they did have the power to destroy the entire galaxy. I read somewhere that it possibly wiped out a third of the Galaxy's population. I don't know if I believe those numbers, but it was terrible nonetheless.

I'm glad somebody is making the Vong war into a video game because its a good story and one of the biggest critical points of galactic history.

It is a very controversial story line. It set the stage for the future since there were no current sith left. The Vong war made Darth Caedus, and brought the Sith back.

Instead of light vs dark, the vong war is an allegory to humans over dependence upon technology, and how they have drifted too far from the ways of nature.

What is more correct: to ravish planets for resources in the name of technological advancement, or to live symbiotically with all living creatures...

what is with chiss, they are know for yuuzhans too, how I know chiss were in the battle with yuuzhans so I think that chiss should have some of strongest ships in galaxy, they should have more modified empire ships with some nasty ion weapons ;) ion weapons was good against yuuzhans ;)

Ion Cannons only immobilise technology. Nothing organic.

But they were naïve...
They became entangled with politics and the running of the Republic
