FDA (FlyingDonutsAddon) Is a mod I started working on in an attempt to make the games skirmish gametype more enjoyable. I started working on it when I noticed that people just don't like skirmish because it is essentially the same idea over and over on different maps, and it requires no strategy to play. So I started working on this mod keeping in mind that people don't want an entirely different game, but a more enjoyable experience. So this thread, here on EEAW, or this update on Moddb, or this page in the manual, is a starting point of what I hope will be a very successful mod.
FDA Will contain SEVERAL new features.
- New "Survival" gametype
Survival will be a gametype that will be based entirely on strategy. Although you will have to do your part as well, to make this work correctly, it will be a fun experience. You will be surrounded by structures that will frequently spawn enemies and attack your base. You will have a base that contains what you would normally have around you, but you will be surrounded by large hills , and there will be footpaths for the enemies to come through. Be it air units, infantry, or vehicles. It will simulate something almost like a tower defense game.
- Random Encounters
During the skirmish gametype, you will come across pirate units, totally AI controlled, in the map. These units may or may not help you, depending on what map you are playing on. If you are the empire, and are playing on coruscant, the Pirates will help you, but if you are the empire, and playing on Yavin iv, then they will not. I think this will be a great addition to FOC's skirmish gametype.
- New buildings
FDA will introduce all new buildings and starbases. Each faction will now have 3 starbases instead of one. This will open up all new possibilities for unit building and strategy.
-New projectile system
FDA will be using an entirely new projectile system. With the help of The_Farseers pack and my own editing, the projectiles will look MUCH different. Also, The entire system will be revamped. The projectiles will move much more fast and will do more damage, so you will have to use lots of units to take down a big target.
Keep looking at our updates for a new list each time!
FDA will include multiple different structures to house the many types of units it will have. For example, Instead of
having a Barracks, you will have infantry split into 3 divisions, Regular infantry, such as rebel troopers, Specialized
infantry, such as a sniper team, and robotic infantry, such as R2 droids. Each faction also has its own special type of
trooper. They get these "special troopers" by certain non canon twists. Start by reading the non-canon script for each
The Galactic Empire used up the left-over biogenetic material of Jango Fett to make more clone troopers on Centax-2.
They realised this would be a great idea as mass-production and fear were the empires biggest weapons in the
Galactic Civil War, and clones would just add more to that. They began to mass-produce the clones old weapons,
vehicles, and other machinery. Eventually, the Empire came to be its old republic riegn plus the terror that it causes to
the galaxy today. The Galactic Empire will have access to lots of different kinds of buildings. They will be able to use

FDA UPDATE 1 - 25/06/11 - 1:33 AM EST
So yeah. This is the first official update. And I have a load of stuff to get into here. So lets get started
First off, we have a new model that I would most certainly love to show here. This starfighter has never been canonically sketched or shown, therefore I had to go off my own ideas.
THE KILLIK DARTSHIP
Model and rigging done by FlyingDonuts; Engine particles by Warb_Null
THE ABOVE UNIT DOES NOT HAVE A SKIN ON IT
Eventually, I plan to make the offsets for the squadron into a swarm formation. So like 100+ships a unit.
I have added lots more units.. but I will save those til the next update.. which should come next week.
So, now I have part of the starbase plan ready here. This is how it will work
START WITH EXPLORATION DROID
GET 4 SUPPLY DROIDS
GET 4 CONSTUCTION DROIDS
Can build, As Empire, TIE Factory, as rebels, Fleet communications center, as pirates, pirate docking bay. These will be able to build your factions FIGHTERS
I am hoping to have this system implanted and working within a few months.. its going to require some work.. all new models and everything.
I will see you all next time!
