I was done a few minutes before Blaat

I installed it on my lower-quality computer, and it froze. It seems to load on my better one, but I haven't tried playing yet.


The site with all the downloads suddenly changed forum software. Not sure if the link earlier will work now.

I don't like all those asteroid fields and nebula clouds, but I can live with them. :lol: I have a feeling that the space around most planets will be void of this debris, though. They just included it in the demo to prepare you for it.

Land combat is pissing me off a little with it's need for capturing reinforcement points and whatnot. I wanna be able to land as many of my Legions of Death wherever the hell I want! Not around thos stupid command post things! :lol:

Other than that, it's great. I really like space combat alot.

Please? I found the more buildings mod over at EaW HQ, but it isn't really anything big. I must have this MonCal, though! And the galaxy!

I found the mod to unlock the galaxy and all vehicles. Here be the linky:

Bryant's Mod

I knew I shoulda checked the Nexus for it earlier. ;) It's awesome though. Especially some of the units. My personal favorite is Home One. ^_^

I was surprised how much stuff was in the demo... I expected a measly little helping of, say, one pre scripted mission, not a tutorial and levels and what-not. Pretty good as far as demo's go :p

Pretty good idea, having tutorials in the demo too, nice touch in letting you play imperials and rebels aswell, overall, it's good :lol:

Good gameplay.

Yet the camera sucks heavily, unless I didnt find out how to toy with it, the cinematics camera seems scripted in a way that it gets repetitive too soon, and pathfinding/unit directions are a tad inaccurate (which means little complex commando missions if any). Hope that changes.

Margret Thatcher - Fenring's the one for me

The cinematic camera, although it gets some good angles, does get repetitive. :p

And how does the camera suck? I can zoom, rotate, and manipulate all I need to get the perfect view. :lol:
