i wanted to make a mod that allows for a 3 person galactic conquest game in forces of corruption where u would just be an observer or work with a paused galactic map when the other 2 players are fighting. I've modded other games before but i wanted to see if people who have worked with empire at war thought this would be possible and if so how difficult. I'm going on the assumption that this is difficult since it seems like something people must have tried before and clearly nobody has succeeded or at least done it and shared it. id appreciate any help i can get

it's not possible and i can't imagine it being fun if it was- a lot of waiting for one player while 2 have a battle.
There's no way it'd be possible, simply because how would you do it? Imps attack a reb planet, what does the consortium player do? Sitting on a paused galactic map for half an hour while the other two fight would just being boring as hell. I suppose you could try to make it so the third person controls the forces with one of the other players, like skirmish almost. But then it's not fair to the second player.
Having three people would be fun, but wont work.
well im not planning on playing this game with strangers. me and 2 of my collage friends wanted to have a game to play together and come back 2. we have plenty of homework and stuff to keep us occupied while the other 2 fight. also having a few minutes of paused time would be very helpful in a hectic game. im simply asking how you would go about doing this or if it is just impossibly hard
Battles are never any shorter then 10 minutes, and having one person step out for a sandwich every 15 minutes would get real old, real fast. Besides I think it's hard-coded, in the end even if it WAS possible, it's horribly impractical.
its not much of a problem if your working while you play which is what i do in which case it actually is kind of nice. that would be unfortunate if it is hard coded =/

it's impossible in Empire at War or Forces of Corruption.
you and your friends might want to look into Sins of a Solar Empire or Supreme Commander though
we all own supreme commander 2 but it dosnt have a good mode like galactic conquest or war of the ring. does sins have something like it for more then 2 people?

Sins is JUST a galactic conquest. Honestly, that's all the game is. So you should give that a look, it also has support for like... what, eight players?
