NEW UPDATE AVAILABLE, 04.06.2021 !
Steamcommunity.com

MULTIPLAYER IS HERE !
NEW UI COLOUR IS HERE !
PLAYABLE PIRATES ARE HERE !
NEW TEXTURES ARE HERE !

This is a custom version of the Ultimate Galactic Conquest mod made by Gutang many years ago.
Original mod : Moddb.com

It fixes some bugs and add a few things :

  • 142 planets in total are available in various Galactic Conquest sets.
  • GC Maps no longer have the Consortium in them, unless you're playing them !
  • But hey, want to play the original GC maps anyway ? No problem, they're here as well !
  • Consortium has no AI, starts with 1 unit on Hypori. (Except on the original maps).
  • Added new soundtracks from other Star Wars movies / series and ONLY from Star Wars.
  • 4 hours and a half of custom music tracks.
  • Contain maps I've done ! :D I might change few things in the mod package in future updates.
  • Contain maps RadicalEdward2 has done specially for the mod !
  • New loading screen and menu overlay, as well as a new menu space battle.
  • Unit cap has been increased.
  • Ships are rescaled and a bit modified.
  • Added garrison for certain rebel ships.
  • Few balance adjustements.
  • Some locked base game units have been unlocked.
  • Improved AI. All factions have working AI in GC, depending on which GC set you're playing.
  • Multiplayer GC !
  • New UI colour, most of the things are blue again !
  • A few graphical and visual enhancements !
  • The Black Sun Pirates are now playable. It's ♥♥♥♥♥♥ but fun. (It's mostly fixed now.)
  • Made with love for this awesome game !


Please note that this mod is optimized for 1080p or superior resolutions. It is also recommended to run the game in maximum graphics and with shaders and water to the maximum detail level.
I strongly recommend to play the mod's GCs on hard difficulty, as I tweaked this difficulty only.Other difficulties AI might have erratic behaviour. Skirmish difficulty is mostly untouched.

Please, let me know if there's any bug or if you have any request.
If gutang want this mod removed, so be it.
Do not re-upload without authorization.

As most of the UGC V1.0 files present in my mod are modified by myself, I do not authorize you to use them to plug UGC into your mod, use the classic UGC V1.0 (Available on Moddb) instead. PM me if you want to use UGC CE content for your mod. As I don't accept random friend requests on Steam, the best way to do it is via joining the discord server of the mod.

Moddb download and manual installation:


Download

  1. Go to the mod page you want, for example, the UGC CE Moddb page.
  2. In the "files" section, select the file you want to download. For UGC CE, all files and complete releases. You don't need any other files to get it to work. For other mods, special instructions may be given.
  3. Click the "Download now!" button, and wait for the download to complete.

Installation

  1. UGC CE files come in a compacted .rar file, that you can decompress easily with 7zip or Winrar. To decompress the archive, right click on the file and if you have either of the previously mentioned softwares installed, you should have an option to "unzip" or decompress the .rar file.
  2. Once the file is unzipped, you should now have a "data" folder wherever you choose to extract the .rar archive. This file contains all the mod's data.
  3. Now, you need to place this "data" folder in your Forces of Corruption install. Note that UGC CE only works with the Forces of Corruption Expansion, but some mods might be for the base EAW game.
  4. To locate your game installation on Steam, right click on "STAR WARS Empire at War: Gold Pack" in your library, go to the "local files" tab and then select "Browse local files". An explorer window to "..\steamapps\common\Star Wars Empire at War" should open within seconds. From here, go to the "corruption" folder, and then open the "mods" folder. If the "mods" folder doesn't exist, create it. It should look like that :
    ..\steamapps\common\Star Wars Empire at War\corruption\Mods
  5. Now, you need to create, within that "corruption\mods" folder, a folder for the UGC CE data folder to come in. You can name it whatever you want, but this will be the name displayed in the in-game mods browser, so be sure to call it something you will remember to be UGC CE.
  6. Inside that newly created folder, simply place the data folder you downloaded and extract earlier. it should look like this:
    ..\steamapps\common\Star Wars Empire at War\corruption\Mods\UGCCE\Data
  7. Now launch Forces of Corruption. Once you are on the main menu, click on "options" and then "mods". The name of the folder should be here. You can select it and launch it. The game should close and reopen a few seconds after, with the mod loaded. The loading screen is a different one from the base game, so you will immediately know if it is loading.

Launch via Steam Launch Options

Sometimes, launching via the game menu doesn't work ; the game closes but the mod never loads afterwards. There's a way to directly launch a mod via Steam without launching the base game first.

  1. Go to your Steam library, and right click on "STAR WARS Empire at War: Gold Pack". Go to properties.
  2. In the "General" tab, click "Set launch options..."
  3. The input box should be empty if you never touched it before. In that text field, you can put various codes that the game will execute at launch. Note that these options will always stay on until you manually delete them by open that box again and changing its content.
  4. For UGC CE, you will need to input the line as follows :
    StarwarsG MODPATH=Mods\UGCCE
  5. The last part of the code (in the example "UGCCE") has to be the name of the folder you want to load. Click Ok when you're done.
  6. Upon launching Forces of Corruption, the game will immediately load the mod folder and its content, so the mod will be loaded directly when you arrive on the main menu, no reboot required!


Steam Workshop Subscription and Launch


Workshop Subscription System and how it works

Steam offers a user friendly Workshop system that allows you to quickly subscribe and download mods for all types of games. The "subscription" is free and will maintain your subscribed content to date as soon as there's an update available.

  1. To subscribe to a mod, go to the Empire at War workshop, and select a mod, for example UGC CE.
  2. Click the green "subscribe" button. Once you pressed the button, the workshop item should download as soon as possible relative to your Steam download settings. UGC CE download should be about 600 MB in size.

Launch via menu

The Steam Workshop automatically installs mods in a dedicated folder that you don't need to touch or do anything with it. To play the mod, you simply need to boot Forces of Corruptions.

  1. Launch Forces of Corruption. Make sure you don't have any command lines set in the launch options.
  2. Go to "Options" and then "Mods". UGC CE should be displayed, named "Ultimate Galactic Conquest Custom Edition (UGC CE) - No Consortium and More !".
  3. Select the mod you want to launch and click "launch". The game should close and restart with the mod enabled.

Launch via Steam Launch Options

As mentioned before, sometimes, the game closes but the mods never loads. There is an alternative if you encounter that issue.

  1. Go to your Steam library, and right click on "STAR WARS Empire at War: Gold Pack". Go to properties.
  2. In the "General" tab, click "Set launch options..."
  3. The input box should be empty if you never touched it before. In that text field, you can put various codes that the game will execute at launch. Note that these options will always stay on until you manually delete them by open that box again and changing its content.
  4. For UGC CE, you will need to input the line as follows :
    STEAMMOD=1156943126
  5. The last part of the code (in the example "1156943126") is the mod's ID. You can find the ID of a mod in the URL of the Steam page of the mod. Click Ok when you're done.
  6. Upon launching Forces of Corruption, the game will immediately load the mod folder and its content, so the mod will be loaded directly when you arrive on the main menu, no reboot required!


Notes

This guide was made to help people download and launch mods from the Steam version of the game. Two other versions of Empire at War exists: The CD retail version, and the GoG version.

The Steam version is the only one to have the latest update and multiplayer support. The other versions are also compatible with most mods (UGC CE as well), but the installation process and some details might change a bit.


Hope this guide is helpful!
Cheers.
