The intent of this mod is to fix the rather large number of bugs, imbalances, missing content, and useless units still in Forces of Corruption.
Please note that this is NOT intended to add units or content that was not in EaW or FoC already. So please don't ask me for Clone Troopers or Galaxy Guns or other things like that.
Also please note that this is intended for balance. Not realism or keeping strictly to canon. So please do not report such things as "bugs" that need to be fixed.

How You Can Help:
I would like help on finding any issues and imbalances not covered in the above. But please make sure that your reason as to why the unit in question in imbalanced is well thought-out. Not just "THIS UNIT KILL MY STUFF/NO CANON!!! RAAAAAAGGGGG FIX! DO NOW!!!". Also please feel free to tell me if you feel that one of the changes above imbalances the unit.
Also i have no release date set for this mod's release so please don't ask me for one as my response will be "When it's done".
Screenshots coming soonish.
I do not see it as a patch, it is only other mod. It does not resolve the real problems from FOC.
Yeah this is more of a mod, but it sounds like a mod that patches things left out in FoC.
Where is this.

Honestly this isn't a patch, and it's dishonest to call it one. Sounds like an okay re-balance mod though.

I didn't try to put anyones modding ability down. I mean this is a good re-balancing mod as Darth_Windu said.

Wow, 7 replies arguing whether or not it's a patch, or a mod. Pointless!!! This is a modding community, not a place to show how long you've been here by blasting a new user in his first post! Oneman, this is well thought out, but you did not address starship scaling. That would be my only suggestion.
