Buildings and Infantry -by Nomad
The Basics, this is not everything.

In addition: Aznable is working on a Stormtrooper model worthy for the Emperor's commands.


Be sure to check the media section!!!!
All renderings are individual. Later renderings will start to conform to some such a standard as above.

Design

Zephon, a new member of the team, is now going to be stepping up for graphic design. He will be fielding the menu and in-game UI. I will still finish the other UI that I introduced to you guys a while back, don't worry. Fans will be able to, upon installation, choose which graphic interface they would like to gaze upon. Zephon's in-game interface will remain default though, and if we have other interested designers willing to add their flair and diversity to the mod then they are welcome.

With this news, we also have a call-out to any coders out there especially fluent in lua for a UI job. Anyone who would like to take up the position would coordinate with Zephon directly so the UI may be correctly implemented.

****Important Note:
There seems to be some confusion on the UI. All campaign and map content is atm, placeholder. This mod is very early in development, make no mistake.



Thanks for following us, we appreciate all the support. More to come in the future!!!

Are you considering to take out the infantries laying down, because in the movies, the soldier never lay down for cover? =)

Why are you not making this on the DoW engine instead? It has all the damn walker units and melee attacks in it already. and the maps are from space.

Because, for a lot of people DoW is a downgrade from CoH. Whether you talk about the first or the second, the modifications to the engine simply doesn't have the same feel.

Also, if you are talking about DoW2, there are hardly any tools and documentation on it, making it 10x harder to do what we do.

Then again, some of us may not want to buy a whole other game just to do this.

i am very excited for this mod, i got galactic battle grounds which was good but wanted a new rts, abd empire at war was good, but it wasn't quite what i wanted, this will bring what i've been wanting.
Thankyou :D

P.S. is that a clone trooper with the 2 stormtroopers on your logo?

Were counting on that :D, the main motivation for this project came from the void that those games left and that which Lucasarts has continually dismissed in pursuit of their new audience.

In regards to the logo: Indeed it is :). Expect units from the transitional period to the Galactic Empire. Such infantry like the Airborne Commandos all the way up to the terrorizing Dark Troopers are in discussion atm.

The timeline includes the period where there were still Clonetroopers in use in the Outer Rim, so yes.
