hello, i have just bought the addon to eaw and i really like all the new features they have added. Problem is i cant just have a galactic conquest between rebels and empire anymore so the ZC just take over the whole map and ruin it :(
is there a mod that allows me to play the 55planet galactic conquest with just rebels vs empire.
i have found one called shadow of the empire but as with all the mods i have found it adds in loads of units i dont need/want. i am sure its just a menu option or some sort of modded galactic map so the ZC only appear on one map which u can invade as soon as the game starts, i have no idea how to do it. can someone do this for me? or is it already out there and i cant find it.?
thanks for reading hope someone can help me before i have to remove corruption for the 19millionth time :(
[INDENT]You can make it yourself. Its really simple enough. Just go to the mods folder, then source. take the xml campaigns_underwold_gc.xml out. Next copy the entire campaign you want modified. this should include THREE sub-campaigns. for example, if you want equal footing. copy from sandbox campaign "equal footing - all planets populated" to the next sandbox campaign. that will include Now delete all lines that say Underworld and in all 3 sub-campaigns. Now you should rename it, changing the campaign name and campaign set for all. If you copy this back into that xml, put the xml in you data/xml folder, it should work. I think thats all I've had to do for the ones that I've changed. Give it a try.
A further note: all xmls are pretty self explanatory. Thats why this game is so easy to mod. [/INDENT]
If you make it, could you release it?
you could always just change it so they dont benefit to corruption and just dystroy them anyway (it make it a 3 way war with out corruption and you can do this from the Expantion factions xml but this messes up campagn so only do this if you do not plan on playing campagn anytime soon)
I forgot to say that you need to download and install the terrain editor in order to have mods/source. You should do this anyways as it is interesting to mess around with the editor.
thanks for the help, i will have a go at making something, i tried the shadow of the empire mod which sort of does the same thing, within 10 minutes the ZC were out of the game and it was ok but after a while the rebels just didnt seem to care about the empire lol, it just ended up being small raids and no space battles. Plus it was too tempting to build those extra units so the balance was all wrong.
i will try something out later on in the week and let you know
I can make you one tomorrow if you'd like. Just let me know.
i sent you a pm a day late, sorry i wasnt around yesterday :( that would be great if you could
With one small change on Campaignfiles.xml you can activate the original galactic conflict from EAW on FOC. Only add this line. CAMPAIGNS_SINGLEPLAYER.xml
