it's been quite a while now, so I finally decided to post a news article again ;) I'm sorry for leaving you in the belief the mod was actually dead or without any information. I invest a lot of time in school since my final exams are just around the corner so I don't get to post anything that often, I apologize for that. But whithout further adue, let's see some changes:
First of all I changed the commanders' and captains' weapons again as I thought it was a bit boring to see them with simple blasters again. So I gave them unique weapons that have their own advantages.
Clone Captain: - WESTAR-M5 Rifle | Commando Pistol / double DC-17 | Sonic Grenade | Anti-Shield Grenade Commander: - three shot DC-15 Carbine | WESTAR-M5 Launcher / DC-15S Heavy Repeater | Defense Buff | Plasmagrenade | BNO Impactgrenade
The rest of the unit setup was not edited. And now to the big question: Will there be custom CIS side? Answer: YES
I worked on the CIS side as well but it doesn't have as much variety as the Republic side which means: I reworked the sides on Coruscant, Dagobah, Death Star, Geonosis, Jabbas Palace, Felucia, Kamino, Kashyyyk, Mustafar, Mygeeto, Theed, Polis Massa, Tantive IV, Mos Eisley, Utapau aaaaaand Yavin IV. The clones have different armor/legions/corps on every single map (including space maps). The CIS, well, they just don't have a Star Corps or Attack Batallion. This doesn't mean that the CIS side is the same on every planet but mostly it is. :P
I almost finished replacing all clones on all planets and I have to work with a lot of annoying bugs, but I think it will turn out great. I also reworked a lot of the weapon sounds and added ambient music in maps such as Coruscant and Utapau (the music used in Episode III).
The last thing I want to talk about is the Order 66 mode. If you don't already know a few planets such as Coruscant, Felucia and Mygeeto will feature a new gamemode called "Execute Order 66". Well I wanted to make a new mode like this, but then everybody would need to install Unofficial Patch 1.3 and I'm not keen on istalling it for myself. Anyway to play the new mode on Battlefront 1.1 and under I just took the Assault mode like on Mos Eisley and added it to certain maps that should feature Order 66 mode. (327th Star Corps vs. Aayla Secura or Galactic Marines vs. Ki-Adi Mundi - hah this wil be fun :D )
Alright, that's all I came up in the 10 min I was writing ^^ I hope you like it so far. Thanks for the great support and may the force be with you (sry I had to pull that)
