The 2.1 update for The Hull Breach Mod.

The patch changes a few balances issues, and adds the Dreadnaught Cruiser for the Rebels and Empire.

the 2.0 version is required as this is only a patch, not a full version.

List of Changes:

Units added: Dreadnought Cruiser.

Changes from V2: Alliance Assault Frigate's Build Time reduced to 35. Alliance Assault Frigate's Cost increased to 3000. Victroy SD's speed increased to 2.3 (I didn't see this while coding V2 but, COME ON. The Vic. Mk.II (the one in the game as seen by the Ion Cannons) was built to be fast and is not just a fraction of a bit faster then an ISD! It's much faster!). Venator's speed increased to 2.7 (to be on par with the Alliance Assault Frigate and faster then the Victory). Victory SD's "Max Rate Of Turn" increased to 0.6 from 0.5 (to be on par with the Alliance Assault Figate). Venator's and Victory SD's build cost reduced to 3000. Lucrehulk build cost reduced to 5000. Nebulon-B Frigate size has been shrunken by a bit. Nebulon-B Frigate cost reduced to 2000 from 2200. Hull Breach's shields raised by 1500.

Bug/error fixes from V2: Venator's "Max Rate Of Turn" reduced to 0.6 from 0.7 (as I was editing the Vic's code to make the Ven it should have been 0.5 if anything. 0.7 is too good). Fixed that the V-19 Torrent isn't buildable at Tech Level 0 for some reason. Fixed the Eta-2's cheap slice cost (raised to 500 as it should be).

***version 2.1***

Welcome back to another HB Mod download! That's right! One week and a half later, you get some more improvments. And more importantly, a Dreadnought for the Rebels and Imperials! It may have some flaws, but I coded it in 1 and a quarter days (excluding a few bug fixes).
And to clear up some confusion, the big "Providence" is the Hull Breach (you should know this if you read the HB's text thingy). This is also the last you'll all hear from me for awhile as the day after I submit this, I'm heading to Israel. :D

Known bugs:
The Dreadnaught's death animation doesn't play nor does the Dreadnaught disappear. I have no idea why this is happening as all the Dreadnaught animations are included and the coding is correct.

***Version 2***

Hello, I'm Lavo, some coder who only started Modding last Febuary. I've somehow learned how to code and stuff in a short period of time and make a whole Mod by myself. WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! Anyways, the following Mod adds the Hull Breach (a fan made ship [it's abbreviation in this ReadMe is HB]) and bunch of other ships and it even modifies some of the current stuff in Star Wars: Empire at War: Forces of Corruption.
First off, a HUGE thank you goes out to swfan654 for making this awesome HB art and tons of coding help! Before you ask, V1 was only posted on the HB and IA2 (this Mod will PWN) forums. It's a GC only Mod (Skirmish doesn't have enough slots to hold all of this stuff and the curent stuff).

Changes to normal FoC:
X-Wing shield strength increased to 30.
Buzz Droids can no longer damage frigates and corvettes and it's recharge time has been doubled.
VSD and Alliance Assault Frigate's weapon's armor and firepower increased by 50% (except the VSD's hanger which remains the same).
StarViper speed reduced from 5.8 to 4.5 (I mean seriously, the Virago which is better then the StarViper in everything is slower then the X-Wing!)
Bossk's Concussion Missile's strength reduced to 16 from 25 (to a fighter held Con-Missile as it should be. Lemme also tell you, a Proton Torpedo has 20 strength and the Acclamator's slower Con-Missile has 18 strength. Overpowered wasn't it?)
TIE Defender and A-Wing speeds increased to 5.8 and 5.5 respectively.
All fighters and bombers can now be built at level 1 space stations (except the TIE Phantom which needs a level 2 station.)
TIE Defender's Proton Torpedo Launchers have been removed (the Assault Gunboat will take the role of fighter/bomber as it is in real Star Wars.)
TIE Defender's Shielding and Armor both reduced to 60 (from 70 and 100 respectively).
TIE Defender's squad size increased to 5 and cost reduced to 500 (from 750).
Improved the green Turbolaser projectile.
Bomber-held Proton Torpedo damage reduced to 18.
All of the Consortium's units except Grenadiers, Merc Squads, Droidekas, StarVipers, Skiprays, Crusaders and Interceptor IVs have been limited 5 and Defilers are removed (from Skirmish too as I couldn't find the <Build_Tab_Land_Units> code line to disable it in GC) so the Con's will be the pirates they should be. (Note: This doesn't include spawn and starting units. As well due to EaW's unit limit coding, Skirmish is also affected. Not like you'd play as the Cons in the Mod anyways.)
Underworld Palace's cost reduced to 1000 for balance.
Time between spawned squadrons for frigates reduced to 3 and SSD to 6.

Ships coded in:
Modified and Old Vulture Droids and Tri-Fighters, Eta-2, Delta-7, Assault Gunboat, K-Wing, Scimitar Assault Bomber, V-19 Torrent, Lucrehulk and Venator Star Destroyer (and no, it isn't one of those overpowered ones).

Changes from V1:
I think I changed the HB's fighter compliment a bit but w/e.
XM-1 and Assault Gunboat sounds added.
Modified Tri-Fighters nerfed a bit.
Delta-7's health reduced to 20 (I did plan to do this orgionally but forgot to do so for some reason).
Eta-2's overpowered lasers fixed.
And other minor things changed.

Bug fixes from V1:
Icon size issues fixed.
Lure ability issues fixed.
K-Wing land bombing run issues fixed.
Issue when a TIE Bomber/Y-Wing would bomb versus the Scimitar Bomber/K-Wing fixed.
And other bugs fixed.

Issues which might seem like glitches but really aren't or actually are:
The HB has a Providence death clone: I added that as it's better then nothing.
The Scimitar Assault Bomber and K-Wing's &quot;Proton Torpedoes&quot; fire only when right near a ship's hardpoint: They're Proton Bombs I coded in.
Some of the Icons have a huge selectable area: No idea why this is happening and I think the only way to fix is to redo them which I will not do.
The XM-1 and Assault Gunboat sounds aren't that loud: The Claw didn't record them loudly I guess. But you still get custom sounds for 'em! :D
The K-Wing, Delta-7 and Eta-2 have hyperdrives: Well, it'd only be a BIT unbalanced if they didn't.

























***Needed info for all versions***

Installation (for main Mod):

1) If you have anything in your FoC Mods folder, rename the Mods folder to something like &quot;FoC_Mods&quot; or &quot;Mods_Other&quot; for example.
2) Extract the stuff in this WinZip to your ...\Star Wars Empire at War Forces of Corruption folder.
3) Double-Click the Icon in your new Mods folder to start the Mod.

Fixing the Icon if your FoC folder isn't in &quot;C:\Program Files\Lucasarts\Star Wars Empire at War Forces of Corruption&quot;:

1) Right-Click the Icon and hit &quot;Properties&quot;.
2) Do the following for both the &quot;Target&quot; (ignore the &quot;\swfoc.exe&quot; MODPATH=Mods\HullBreach&quot; part) and &quot;Start in&quot; boxes.
3) The &quot;C:\&quot; reffers to the harddrive the game's data is in so if it isn't in the &quot;C&quot; Drive change the letter to the appropriate Drive's letter.
4) If your &quot;Lucasarts&quot; folder is not in the &quot;Program Files&quot; folder remove the &quot;Program Files\&quot; line.

Patch Installation:
1) Extract this stuff to your &quot;...\Lucasarts\Star Wars Empire at War Forces of Corruption&quot; folder.
2) Whenever you are asked to over write stuff click &quot;Yes&quot; or &quot;Yes to all&quot;.

Uninstall:

1) Delete the &quot;Mods&quot; folder.
2) If you renamed your old Mods folder change the name back to &quot;Mods&quot; or if you deleted the Mods folder in Step 1 of the installation, make a new folder called &quot;Mods&quot;.

Credits:

AbSoLuTiOn: Beta tester and he is amazing because he quickly reviews whatever I send to him and posts pics (screens 1, 3 and 5 are his). He also found the Scimitar Bomber model/skin used in this Mod.
z3r0x: My Icon is actually a modified one from z3r0x's Mod (v2.0). So thanks for it!

Final notes (as of V2.1):

You CANNOT use/distribute any of the coding (save the Venator turret coding with Avenger's permission) in this Mod for your own Mod (but you can tweak the coding for your personal useage).
All the custom sounds used in this are property of The Claw and cannot be used/distributed without his permission.
I will be away July 8th-Aug. 18th so don't Email me for help then.
I will add Providence for the Cons in the future.
