So,now there are...3 new factions planned ? Because last there were only 2,as far as i remember.Or are those greyed out options just for testing ?

Three's the plan. Were always planning to do all three, just in different ways than we ultimately decided.

Just asking, are you done with creating ship roster for the Hand ? If not, have you thought about Chiss Star destroyer as either a cruiser or a capital ship ?

The Empire of the Hand is getting more ships, however the "Chiss Star Destroyer" is already in the mod, we've just given it a specific class name (Ascendancy-class Star Destroyer). Same as the "super" Star Destroyer just being a colloquial term for the Executor-class.

Not really what i meant,Ascendancy IS a Chiss SD,but i meant the one designed for YVaW mod (the one that is basically a Victory SD without the bridge).

Why? That's their design, and it doesn't really fit in with the faction as it exists in TR. As far as the description of the specific Swarm War/Second GCW-era Chiss SD vessel in canon (of which ours is an earlier version, hence the lack of the dome which is presumably the cloaking device), it doesn't quite match that either (which is entirely their prerogative).

Even if you want it, you're not getting it. This mod is based on post-endor legends.

I still can't understand,what makes people constantly beg for CW content ? What is so compelling about the Clone wars that i can't see ? No offense to any Clone wars era fans,but this is one of the most boring galactic conflicts in the in-universe Star Wars history.Despite how trivial it may sound,GCW,Imperial Civil war and Yuuzhan Vong war are far more interesting in terms of the scale,sheer destructiveness and overall "excitement",if you can call a fictional space war "exciting".So please,tell me why do people always want more CW-related things in mods,that have nothing to do with Clone wars ?

Honestly I'm not too sure. Don't get me wrong I did like the Clone Wars and if people actually read into the law and look into the factions and their rosters there is plenty of CW era content in this mod.

*The New Republic is modelled very similar to the CW era Republic I mean you look at some of their ships especially the colour schemes.

*Although for some people this isn't enough they may want CW era units and tech well then this mod has that covered too inf the form of the Pentastar Alignment. Their government and Military are a combination of Imperial and Trade Federation (which was a CIS member), also just take a look at their roster. You've got the up to date Imperial tech, mixed in with both CW Republic (such as the Venator, and the Accumulator) and they have CIS units as well (Trade Fed Battleships, and Frigates). And if people read the description (again) the Pentastar Alignments government policies are based on trade and income which (again) is the same as a lot of the CIS factions during the CW in fact didn't some of the former CIS capitals become apart of Pentastar territory?

Sorry if this got long but just really wanted to state that there is already plenty of CW era stuff in this mod.

But unfortunately this still isn't enough to please everyone and in that case there are other mods where you can play as CW factions (Sins of a Galactic Empire being one).

Well...the Venator is one of my favorite ships.

Also I read that Thrawn reintroduced clones back into Imperial Ranks so there you go Clone troopers as well.

In conclusion there is no need to aid an overwhelming amount of CW era content into this mod because if you look hard enough it's already there, not to mention as a number of people have pointed out this is a post battle of Endor mod set in the EU and even if they added in the CIS and CW Republic they would greatly outmatched by the other factions, I mean don't get me wrong the Venator is an impressive piece of Military hardware and while it was top notch for it's time and while it may still have it's uses with the Pentastar Alignment (as a heavy Career) there is very little to no chance of ships from the Era being to able to take down an Imperial Star Destroyer or other Capital ships of that category (with the exception of the CIS battleship that the PA get's anyway).

Hey Corey this looks good mate keep up the good work.

And a a third new faction on the hmm trying to figure out who that could be?

*98% certain that the first of those three factions is the Vong.
*60-75% certain (more or less hoping) that the second one could be the Mandalorians seeing as how they did play a part in the War with the Vong, and they have some awesome units as well like the Keldabe Battleship, and Crusader Corvette also I think the Star Viper is also of Madalorian origin (correct me if I am wrong)?

But as for this third faction, not a clue.

Anyway can't wait for more content keep it up.

I obviously cannot answer for the devteam,but from all the previous updates it's almost certain,that the remaining factions will be the Ssi-ruuvi Imperium,Vong and the Hapans.

Description

We've shown a lot of the new UI for 1.1 so far, but have yet to show the faction select screen, so here it is, with one really notable change as far as gameplay goes.

And remember, MotY is still on so if you want to toss us a vote, we'd certainly appreciate it!
