It's not very hard to do a crappy job of it: changing the AI thing in campaigns_underworld.xml from "None" to something like "BasicEmpire" or "Basic_Rebel"... I don't know if you need an underscore or not, but it'll be apparent there with the Empire set to either human or basic_empire/basicempire, etc.

To do a better job you'd need to create a new "basic" for them.

I did this for myself a while back, it sort of worked, but not very well - the YV moved around the galactic map some, but they didn't really attack much at all.

I gave up after a while out of laziness, they're a pretty stupid faction anyway.

Has it something to do with the .lua's? Then you can ask Sidious Invader for it.

I should probably clarify, when I attempted this, I was using Phoenix Rising's mod, and very new to modding, so yeah. But by moving around, I mean they only captured already empty planets, and, much to my disgruntlement, typically established control only to completely leave the planet empty, but under their control. Lame. :/

If and when I eventually start working on a CSA faction for my own personal mod, I'll send you the data needed to work on the YV if you want.

In response to about the YV in game: My main issue with them is that they're not so much deadly as they are impossible to kill, and I get pretty sick of having to go through either: 1 - Battles I can't win if I'm not prepared for. 2 - Battles I have only minimal losses in, but take forever if I'm prepared.

In response to about the YV in general: Plus, I've always had a grudge against them as a plot idea, because, while the fact that they're organic is original, making them invincible is just a lame plot excuse for a lack of clever plot twists. I mean, really, black holes? That has nothing to do with organic material anyways, and the idea would be a lot more believable as Imperial researched thing, and even still, it'd still have to have some flaws in it's design. It seemed to me that the majority of the steam from the era was running off of tragedies to hook in new readers. Personally, I thought ruining Coruscant and killing off Chewbacca were just devices to try to convince the reader of how deadly they are.

I just hope they don't become the next "Empire".

Yeah, well, I wasn't really sure what I was doing, and PR doesn't even have any YV units in it, so it was more a test than anything else.

Maybe, what I was referring to the way the YV block lasers on their star ships - some organic thing produces black holes at the spot where the laser will hit and the black hole will absorb the laser.
