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.
This is the first official Expanding Fronts beta. It contains a rebuilt and functional Galactic Empire civilization, alongside numerous new units and features for players to discover. Among the changes: - 4 unique Empire Sub-Factions adding enhanced strategic control - Single-player FPS raised to 60 - Enabled post-game view for one player - Enabled 1:1 and 1:2 full map print ratios - Game now uses separate x2 files, so it will not interfere with existing installation of Galactic Battlegrounds and/or Clone Campaigns - Game uses new registry key to store the settings - Game can now play more than one instance of a single sound at once - Enhancements to the Scenario Editor, including support for negative input, more terrains, and new triggers
