First and foremost, I want to thank the team and community who have done an amazing job this year in making 2.7.1 possible. This update is yet another massive update on the road towards a complete AotR 2.7 version.
Here's a high level list of what has changed since 2.7:
Intervention Mission System has a new Support system that is decided by mission successes and failures. This value will make subsequent missions appear quicker and give you better rewards when the value is higher. The missions themselves have been optimized to give you access to a much larger pool of rewards to receive. Each mission also has an expiration date for when you must complete the mission by before it is failed and another one is generated. Also included are lots of optimizations to the system to make it more stable and performant.
The Hero Rescue system has been given a large overhaul (again) and now should track each hero death much more accurately. The rescue mission also has a wait after you lose the hero before the mission is given to you. Losing your main faction hero will also disable the intervention missions until they are rescued.
Galactic AI has been updated as well. Attacks are more brutal and efficient. AI building and infrastructure planning has also been optimized. We also have made balance adjustments to make sure the main fight focuses on the Rebellion versus the Empire, with the Black Sun being somewhere between the power of a major faction and minor faction. We have also cleared out a majority of the lag present in both space and galactic, so hopefully your player experience is much more smooth.
A massive overhaul has been done to the space tactical AI. We have more or less rewritten the entire system in order to make the AI much more competent in space combat. The AI overall has a general sense of what priority target to hit, along with being able to perform a limited amount of side efforts. Space combat is much harder now, and as such you will need to bring your inner tactician out in order to combat the enemy.
Space combat has also been totally overhauled. A major change has been made to the damage and armor models of each ship and weapon. Along with that, all space weapons were standardized and named appropriate to their roles. We now have a regular, long range, and heavy variant of each type of weapon along with dual variants of each. Each space unit has also received a major description overhaul to explain the unit much better to you. Graphs such as Armor, Shields, and Speed have been added to help you better understand the role of the unit in combat. All special abilities, both active and passive, are also now listed on the unit along with any galactic conquest restrictions.
Finally, as always, there's a bunch of new units for you to play with along with many overhauled units. Along with that most of the space and ground effects have been visually reworked and the game is looking the best it has ever looked!

This mod creates a deeper game play based more on the old game Star Wars Rebellion. It brings many strengths, making it a FAR richer experience than before. I LOVE this mod. However due to the game engine, or rather the systemic issues WITH the engine, this mod sees horrible lagging. If this could be fixed, this would be a game I would pay again for. Well done and I hope to see a new Lucas Arts production with a better engine based on your game.
