Expanding Fronts is a massive modification for Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds aimed to breathe life back into the classic LucasArts strategy game by adding various new units, features, and gameplay elements. Each of the 8 civilizations are being reworked and enhanced to make each feel more unique and authentic to the universe, while maintaining the classic Battlegrounds gameplay. In addition, the Scenario Editor is being filled with hundreds of new units, buildings, effects, triggers, and objects to allow campaign and scenario designers more freedom than ever before.

Expanding Fronts is very good, but is there a way to increase selected units limit? When you build like 500 droids and try to control them, you'll be out of group limit.

I may have brought this up before, I can't remember. Any way for you guys to duplicate the 3D water effect from Age of Empires 2 HD?

Even if they couldn't I'd still like to see the enhanced edition water textures replace galactic battlegrounds water, it looks a little bit nicer.

Can you patch mod's executable with this Davidgow.net to prevent crashes after 20-40 minutes of game? There's first link to executable battlegrounds_x1 that already patched, but this is original CC, and we need EF.

Nvm, did it with Hex Editor Neo, open EF exe (battlegrounds_x2.exe, if you changed the name to play via GameRanger - battlegrounds_x1.exe) with it, then search bytes 8B 47 FD and change 25 bytes from 8b (included). Should look like this now: Ibb.co

No more crashes.

Expanding Fronts is a well put together and balanced mod. It takes Galactic Battle grounds (one of my favorite Star Wars games) to another level of greatness.
