...Will the developers be remaking all of the old non-skirmish maps? You know the planetary maps, as i cant imagine invading a planet with a small space map having a SSD, wouldnt it be too big for that map? I mean, one of the things i hate about EaW (I do love the game though) is that the maps are sooo small, and i think it'd be nice if all the old maps were redone to be bigger. And dont they also have to be remade to accomodate the custome base placement? Or are all the new features just limited to the newer planets/maps.

I think they are reworking the maps.

I remember reading one article that said the developers are making the maps 60-70% bigger and are updating old ones. I'll try to find the article and post a link for it.

Here it is : http://pc.ign.com/articles/718/718338p2.html

Scroll down to the third paragragh.

And I hope they're also adding the new terrain features, such as areas that are only passable by infantry. That, combined with larger maps, base placement and troop transports should do wonders for enhancing ground combat, which so far has been the weakest part of the game.

I agree, but I still enjoyed the ground combat in Empire at War. Petroglyph just needs to add a little more unpredictability to ground combat, that's all.

Sure, it wasn't horrible or anything. It was just the weakest part of an otherwise great game, that's all.
