Thrawn's Revenge is a large-scale mod for Empire at War: Forces of Corruption. It includes the events of the Galactic Civil War after Palpatine's death at Endor, up until the signing of the Pellaeon-Gavrisom treaty. If you own the Steam version of EaW, you will have to complete extra steps to run the mod after installation. Please see the manual for these steps.

Report RSS 2.2 Full Demo Rundown

A full rundown of what we've done in the demo, and what we're doing going forward.

Posted by on

We said with the demo announcement we'd do a full rundown of changes included in the demo when we get closer. Well, we're closer.



To re-iterate on the announcement post for those who didn't see it, not only should this give something to hold everyone over until release, but if we've messed something up, we'll have ample time and feedback to adjust it as we go. This will be especially useful for balancing feedback; there have been plenty of balancing changes which should be pulling the mod in the direction we want, however the exact numbers are certainly still up in the air, and the demo will give us a good amount of feedback to adjust from the current new baseline. There are a ton of changes being made in 2.2, probably more than in any previous version (including 1.0, and the huge jump between 1.3 and 2.0), so the more feedback we can get in one GC as a testbed, the more easily we can make changes without them already being embedded in ~19 other scenarios.

Here's the basic overview of what to expect compared to 2.1, as well as a bit of a projection to the full 2.2. Keep in mind, everything (especially in the full 2.2) is subject to change. Content may be added or removed as time and priority allow, especially when it comes to additional units.

So, by "Republic Star Destroyer", do you mean the Republic-class, or the Imperial-class built by the NR ?

Republic-Class. I think the only way NR gets ISDs in the mod is by taking Kuat and Bilbringi, even then they only get 1 free one.

Ok then. Was expecting this more than the ISDs for the Republic.

I have a Question ? wry is it that the ships in this mod fire thery lasers like a mini gun.. can you speed it down a bit, or.. just asking i have never seen a ship in starwars the fires that fast.. i like the vanilla shooting speed and you make a mod so it does that

If you read the changelog:

"Graphical Changes:
Most if not all particles and projectiles have been overhauled. Firing rates for all ships also reduced (and power adjusted accordingly) so fire is no longer in sheets."

"Upkeep cost mechanic" I'd actually been wondering recently if that was even possible to implement. Such a mechanic would really help increase the difficulty of making credits, something that I always found was never really a issue you had to keep track of.

I'm hoping the providence has decent weaponry to fight isd's. here's my
question why did you make it so torpedoes don't penetrate shields like the ones in cannon?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

The ones in canon don't actually penetrate shields. There are two types of shields- ray and particle, they can penetrate one but not the other. EaW has only one type of shield, so that one has to cover both types.

I see, .correy I have another question. will the droid destroyer have the firepower of an isd, or will it be just as strong as a venator cruiser from the clone wars?
