Galaxy at War is a realism mod for Empire at War only, by FighterpilotX.
Whilst making no changes model or texture wise, this mod changes several things in the gameplay. The action is faster paced, and the AI seemed more agressive to me, and also more cunning to me. Units are correctly scaled, and the stats for units are completely redone. In GC, there are now new ways to influence your income stream, and certain ways work better on different planets. You have to think more tactically in both Galactic mode and in battle. I found only one problem with the mod, and that is that hero units have not been recaled, and possibly not edited at all.
The author says that this mod can be used by anyone in their mod as long as they mention it in the readme.
In the end I can say that this is a quality mod. I love it. Its definately worth the download.
