I've searched the website for "co-op" and "coop" but nothing came up, so I figure there isn't, but does anyone know about a mod for EAW that adds co-op multiplay? I imagine it's probably too difficult to implement something like that for the EAW or FOC campaigns but I thought I'd ask.

If you mean Co-Op Campaign? No, its not possible with EaW.
I didn't make it!
i know huh. but can there be co-op in galactic conquest, that would be super awesome. though.... im probably guessing its impossible.

yup, you'd guess right, its impossible.
Yeah, I figured it was impossible. That's too bad, though, because it would be really fun.
I take what n0e says way too seriously

Yea, that would be a whole new piece of the game, not something that can really be modded in....
admiral, you are needed

well thats not necessarily true, you could mod in a another version of the same race and then have it be an alliy withe the main race
I can think of too many problems with such a MOD, though. For instance, unless it forced all computers on the LAN game to experience the same events, then the other players would be going to different planets at the same time. EAW and FOC don't seem capable of that, based on the normal LAN mode which won't let you pause or save. So that means all players would be experiencing the same scripted events simultaneously. This means that the missions would now be horribly unbalanced, with twice the firepower on your team and only the original amount on the enemy's side. Therefore you'd have to rebalance all the missions to work with two players.
That brings up another question. Is there a MOD that lets you save your multiplayer and LAN games? And is there a MOD that lets you pause your matches? It's so unbelievably irritating that I can't pause my LAN games because then I can only play them late at night when I know I won't have any interferences.
Also, is there a Galactic Conquest mode in any MOD that let's you play 2 vs. 2? I'd love to play Galactic Conquest WITH a friend against two AIs, rather than have to fight against my friend. I've done the latter so much it's no longer fun.
It just seems like EAW and FOC are far too limited in terms of multiplayer capability...Maybe I'll take up scripting to make these mods myself if no one else has.

The only thing that I can think of is set one of the other two factions as a freindly to your faction in the factions.xml. Though ofcourse victory will be no problem unless you have the other two factions as allies which would be more challenging since they would only be attacking just you and not eachother aswell. That is until someone gets more than 3 factions working perfectly.
