Hello. I figured I would make a more... public thread for our mod. This will give more of the EAW community a chance to see updates, provide input, and ask questions. To see what the mod is about, and (released) changes, visit DarthNerd's Studio - Home under 'Restore Mod'. My intention in creating this thread is to provide a link between the mod group and community, and give the community a chance at input on what they want or what they think about our changes. All updates (as of now) are on the site. Any input is appreciated. Thank You, The FoC Restoration Mod Group DarthNerd onussolitariusanimi Commander165 simplestarwarsfan selvas_selokanas

I saw one of your things. Now why in the Hell did you give the Tie Interceptor Shields!?

I'll agree with the good Admiral there. That actually brings up a question of mine in that why is it called the 'Restoration Mod'? Okay you're restoring planets (sort of) that were cut from the final release, but the vast majority of changes have nothing to do with restoration. Seems very misleading to me.

Admiral: Thrawn gave Interceptors shields because of several reasons. A. They were good fighters, but without shields, were wasted against New Republic fighters B. They were expensive, and Thrawn saw the value in adding longevity C. Pilots got deadlier if they learned from their mistakes, such as Defender pilots. Quote (from Wookiepedia): Due to limited pilots and fighters, Grand Admiral Thrawn had many TIE Interceptors fitted with shields to minimize casualties during his reign of the Imperial Remnant. This practice was continued after his death as the Empire could no longer afford to field profuse fleets of TIE Fighters.[11] Officers of the Imperial Navy were sometimes known to adopt TIE Interceptors as their personal craft, installing shield projectors and hyperdrives so the Interceptors could be utilized as escape vehicles. Apwar Trigit was one such officer.[12] Unquote Windu: The name 'Restoration Mod' does not just apply to 'restored content', we are getting at restoring it to canon specs. While the mod will be nowherwere near canon, it will have elemnts that make it truly Star Wars. ie, stronger shields, faster lasers, faster missiles, projectiles not going through shields, etc. And going by name alone, Conflicts in space souns like a space-only experience, and 'Thrawn's Revenge' Sounds like he is going to murder anyone and everyone he comes across in cold blood...

Addendum: So I gave the Interceptors shields to balance out the sides (Awings with missiles RAPE unshielded TIES) and to be a bit more canon.
