Empire at War
Phoenix Rising v1.1 is the next release in the highly anticipated mod for Forces of Corruption. It completely reworks parts of the game, adds new units, and rebalances the gameplay in order to create
a more canonical game. What can I say? Phoenix Rising 1.1 lives up to its promises. When you play the mod, you'll feel like you're playing a completely different game (for better or worse). For those of you who haven't been following the mod, Phoenix Rising wants to make the game more canonical by removing hardpoints, adding more fleet ships, realistically scaling the units, and making the gameplay feel like the movies. Instead of having four turbolasers on a Star Destroyer, you have hundreds firing at your targets, just like you've read about in the books. In order to build more units, you need to research them and then upgrade them to hold their own against the newer tech that your enemies research. However, those of you with lower end computers will not have such a great time with this mod. The large GC maps will cause a large amount of lag and the higher poly models will tax your video card. If you have trouble playing vanilla FoC, then you might want to question whether or not you want to try this out. Technical difficulties aside, this mod contains so many changes to the game that I find it hard to give a summary. If you want a game that makes you think more carefully for your battles and allows you to conquer more planets in one GC map than ever before, then download this mod and try it out!
