I'm sure this has been asked before, but is it possible to add a new playable faction without editing an existing one? I'd like to add the CIS (because of the ammount of CIS models that have been made lately) but I don't want to have to change the pirate faction or anything else. Problem is, I get an exception when I try and start a battle as the CIS. I get it if I create a new faction, or modify the pirate faction. Is there more than 1 XML file that needs to be modified?

Admiral_Antilles - I understand that, and I have played AGD's CIS faction, but I would still like to know how to create a new faction, especially if there is a way to add a new faction without modifying an existing faction. I'll wait for you to post the link then Kalo. Thanks

make sure you add the necessary things to play them: Starbases, Ground buoldings, units, etc.

In FACTIONS.XML copy an existing faction and change the things you need. New text entries are needed, new icons, new buildings (or you can clone an existing one and add it to the CIS), starbases (maybe videos and sounds). So adding a COMPLETELY NEW faction is the same procedure, just more stuff needed to do it. Can you tell me about a good event when a B1 Battle Droid or a Clone Off-topic: Trooper looks into the camera for some time? Yes, I'm planning to make loop movies for the game (the characters' holograms displayed by the helper droids).

You do realise that he isnt the only one to have added another faction don't you?
