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.

WHAT'S UP?
Things have been a bit quieter than usual, unfortunately. Many of our members are bogged down by school, family, and life in general, but we're still trucking on, and we've got quite a few surprises planned for you in the not-too-distant- future. We'll start with some great news!

GALACTIC BATTLEGROUNDS HEAVEN IS BACK ONLINE!
After unfortunately being down for over a month, our host site Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds Heaven is back online, and every download, article, strategy, and resource available to modders, designers, and SWGB players are now available once more. In addition, a new section dedicated to Artificial Intelligence and Random Map Scripting has been added to our Forum! Stop by and say hello!

SECRET PROJECT...
We've been working on a very special addition to the Expanding Fronts mod for quite some time now. We cannot say exactly what it is just yet, but it is sure to bring SWGB into an entirely new era. Until next time, we thank you for your patience and support, and once again ask that you leave any questions, comments, and concerns you may have in the comments below.

I gotta ask, I recently saw some pics with a lot of units from other famous sci-fi games like Star Trek and Mass Effect to name a few. My question is: Will they be added in some way? Like cheat units or something? Or will they be released at all?

That was just an April Fools Day update; None of those units will be featured.

The models were borrowed from the Google Sketchup 3D Warehouse.
