An infamous RTS game created by LucasArts, it was largly based off of Age of Empires, and was considered the better Star Wars RTS of the time (Others bieng Rebellion and Force Commander). Despite its age and aged appearence, it still has a small but loyal following at Heaven Games, which hosts a vault of tools which make modding the game a rather simple task.

BACK AT IT

Since 1.2's release back in January, we've been hard at work gathering feedback and adding new content to Expanding Fronts. This month, we will be releasing a new build of the mod for players to download.


WHATS NEW IN 1.2.1

The 1.2.1 release of Expading Fronts will primarily include various bug fixes and small balance adjustments, but there is a pile of new content incoming as well. Thanks again to the animation efforts of user The_Undying_Nephalim, and new sprite processing tools developed by Tevious, the Zann Consortium faction now contains a complete roster of unique animated infantry and support units, including heroes, and a new style of Force-user Temple.


NIGHTSISTERS

Instead of training Jedi and Sith, the Zann Consortium will have access to Nightsisters, which possess unique unit and Temple structure graphics and sound. In addition, the Zann can now train a unique third unit type from the Temple: the Nightsister Hunter. The game's first ranged Jedi-type unit, Hunters carry energy bows that fire deadly homing projectiles. Like other Jedi/Sith units, they can pick up and carry holocrons, and are subject to Temple upgrades. They cannot, however, convert enemy units.


NEW WORLDS

1.2.1 will feature a handful of new Random Map scripts as well; including the island world of Ahch-To, and the dried, coral-covered seabeds of Rugosa. Both scripts have unique, challenging terrain features, and will make use of the many new terrains, structures, and props added in Expanding Fronts. Many of the older EF scripts are likewise going through tweaks to improve balance and overall map quality.


COMING MAY 25

Expanding Fronts 1.2.1 will be made available for download on May 25th. In the meantime, the Monthly Google Drive Build has already been updated with some of the new content and fixes, as well as a partial changelog.

A Discord server for Expanding Fronts is now available. Discuss the game, chat with the devs, and organize multiplayer matches with your friends. You can join us HERE. Thanks once again to everybody who has supported the Expanding Fronts project over the years. We look forward to bringing you even more content in the future. May the Fourth be with you.

You can buy the full Game on GOG and Steam (I would Recommend getting it from GOG tho).

Tried to edit the graphics (add) for one of the new units in the GRAPHICS_x2 file using TurtlePack. Next thing I know, all units and objects now have NO graphics whatsoever. After that, I tried moving the graphics files out of the folder and then back in, and then, NO graphics WHATSOEVER. I uninstalled SWGB Saga and Expanding Fronts and wiped my cache and local files, reinstalled, and it STILL had invisible graphics. Next, I did a full c-clean, emptied my recycle bin, moved all my old save files, and cleared the cache, and reinstalled, and STILL the graphics won't appear.

Also, where are the scenarios you make saved to?! All in all, very buggy and perhaps system breaking.

Might be a virtual store issue. Check under C:\Users\User_name\AppData\Local\VirtualStore and see if there are scenarios or drs files present.

Why does this get the ever elusive 10? Cuz I said so, and it's pretty much the only game whose map making system I can figure out. Yeah, I'm that dumb.
