Seregruth and Enpremi will be releasing a mini-vong mod by themselves.

Back To The Roots

Greetings, dear fans
of this Yuuzhan Vong mod,

it´s been actually a
while since I, Seregruth, and my brother, Enpremi,
established this mod page. At first, it was meant to be a small mini-mod which
would be then used by other fancy mods. But then we joined the team around
Burntstrobe and began to work on a rather massive project, far beyond our
original intentions and imagination. During those years we learned new things
from other members of the community, improved our skills, made new friends and
enemies as well. But everything has an end and we decided to leave the Shapers
and return to basics.

There are many reasons for this decision, from personal to technical, but you
should care mainly about its results – we will create a new mod called Vong Invaders Expansion with a different aim than the current YAVW mod. We return to the
original idea of new standalone faction (+new units for old ones) AND modders
resource. The main issues of this decision are missing campaign with story and
not proper chronological/era environment. On the other hand it should speed up the
thing we (and hopefully many fans as well) want to do – play with preciously made Vong units ASAP. Therefore we will intend
to make 3 level of release: 1) space skirmish 2) ground skirmish 3) galactic

There will be certainly a closer cooperation between us and the Shapers, we
also share most of the content. However, we are now separately acting subjects.
All of our work will be accessible for any modder with good manners after the
release and we are eager to adjust our mini-mod to match potential era-related
partner mods.

Beside aims and policy adjustments we would like to change the way you – fans
play in the development of the mod. We hereby ask you to join a track our new mod and express your opinions more often. There
are plenty things to discuss, beginning with the Vong “standard” team colour
for instance…

Thanks for your

In summary:

Seregruth and Enpremi are splitting away from the team to explore their own ideas. The YVaW team will continue using the created models, so no harm is being done to the YVaW Mod. Seregruth and Enpremi now have the ability to focus on their own projects and explore new areas of modding without being constrained to all the work needed to be finished for the YVaW Mod. We remain good friends, and support each other.

The YVaW mod and Seregruth and Enpremi now each have the ability to customize the Vong as they see fit, sharing ideas and picking and choosing what works the best for each own's project.

You the fans, now get 2x the Vong.

Woohoo, cause if there is one thing EaW is lacking is more Vong mods. I mean we got tons of Clone Wars, plenty of KOTOR/TOR, but not enough Yuuzhan Vong!!

For some reason I feel this shouldn't have been a reply to your comment. Didn't notice until after!

there is an older and very addictive mod called Strategic Improvement. It's available in both french and german and can be downloaded outside. Vongs are present and the numbers of planets, ships, factions, nonplayable subfactions, hyperspace ways... is respectable. You can play from the Clone Wars to the Vong Invasion.
My top 3 mods are Thrawn Revenge, Republic at War and Strategic Improvement. I'm waiting YVAW to be released before I change this top 3 ;)

Unless that's a recent change, I haven't seen the Vong in the Strategic Improvement mod, I have both versions of their mod, the Clone Wars version and the one with both the Clone Wars and Galactic Civil War.

There is at least one campaign with the Vong for sure. In this one the Empire holds its positions in the Brabant sector and the Vong start at Dubrillion with no buildings whatsoever, just a massive fleet ready to expunge :)The New Republic is weak and must capture as many neutral planets as she can in the start of the game. check it out !

I really hate to see u guys split up and I hope it dosent harm the production of either mods even though you'll still both be sharing models so its not all bad. I just hope that with the loss of complete one track cooperation toward one goal and one mod wont put back either mod back by too much. though I do like the idea of a mod being pushed through quickly to get my vong on, I just hope the quality of both turn out equally good, and wish the best luck to both groups.

We have plenty of team members and our production will not be hindered at all. If anything, this will allow Seregruth and Enpremi to continue exploring new ideas that they can share without feeling guilty. We are still good friends and this will prove more beneficial for all.

We wish them well and it will be interesting to see what they try differently :)
