501st Legion Fix

Description:

This mod, by 666rulerofclones, is a mod only for the Republic side with the intent of making it more "501st-like." Of course, the problem with a sides mod for only one side is that often this

throws the balance to whack, and this is pretty true here. The riflemen, engineers, and jet troopers remain pretty similar (although the first and last get extra grenades and the engineer gets mines), and they're not too badly out of balance (but all that extra ordnance is a little iffy). However, the sniper, heavy, and commander are where the balance really leaves. The sniper's rifle has been changed, inexplicably, to fire a lot more rounds a lot faster than a normal sniper rifle, and without reducing the power at all. This, frankly, does not make a whole lot of sense to me. Likewise, the heavy trooper's rockets have been replaced with a powered-up chaingun (with no warmup time) which is far more overpowered than the rockets ever were. The clone commander is powered-up, too (to be fair, that officer unit was a little weak compared to the others, but this took it a little too far). He's got auto-turrets and a rifle in place of his chaingun - which would be fine, except the rifle is a lot more powerful than everything else. The visuals have been changed, too, so that everything looks more like a unified 501st - which would be great, except that the 1.2/1.3 patch does all this already, and the 1.2/1.3 does it [i]better[/i], and the 1.2/1.3 doesn't break online compatibility, which this will. I'm all for new stuff, but a lot of this side mod feels like it's doing something that's already been done, and it's not doing it as well. Of course, if you want the changes that've been made with the units (and you can stomach the imbalance), then go ahead and give it a try. -Mav
