I didn't make it!

Hi guys, I'm new to the forums and the game, and was hoping someone could give me some advice. I'm an old fan of Supremacy (or SW: Rebellion as it was called everywhere else apparently :S) and I've just bought the EAW Gold Pack to see if it's any good. I've played through the galactic conquest a few times and found it a bit lacking, and I would like to know which is generally considered to be the best overall mod for it? I've been looking at Absolute Enhancement 5.1... Secondly, is it possible to get the Death Star II for EAW (not FOC), as one of the best bits about Supremacy was being able to take out Rebel ships with the superlaser, and as far as I know you cant in vanilla. If not, is it possible make the first Death Star do this? Thanks in advance for your replies!

absolute enhancements is probably the best out now, and it is possible to have the death star shoot a super laser, the only problem, i have NO idea how. or at least atm EDIT:here is what you would do: first look in the death star alo file with the alamo object viewer. find the bone that is the firing bone. now make a hard point with that bone in it. now go into projectiles xml and add this string in it yes now go to hard points and copy an existing one. for instance i'll use this one HARD_POINT_WEAPON_LASER No No

to do that, I believe you would need to code in the speial ability, event, and parameters. I'm not sure, but that might mean .lua editing. But then again, it could just be a matter of angle, ability, and SFX.
