Super Star Destroyer Eclipse
 
Hi,

Still trying to get used to playing FOC, and wonder if someone can please help?

I have build the Death Star and Lord Vader's ship the Executor, but can't figure out how you build the Emperor ship Eclipse. I tried putting the Emperor in space but all he gets if a lander shuttle.

How do you get the Eclipse?

Thanks a lot. :vsd:

its campane only

ImpElite 01-01-2007 03:14 PM

The manual says the Empire gets an Eclipse, but it's only during the Zann Consortium campaign on the last mission, which sorta sucks, except for the fact that it would bring balance to doom.

Anakin Skywalker 01-01-2007 04:31 PM

I don't get the ending of it..... Zann went for the Eclipse but then decided to leave it? WTF?

Sadly..... the Eclipse is only available in campain... as the two above me have already pointed out.... It would be cool to use in a regular space battle though :D

Well, actually the only time a Eclipse being playable is under the ZC campaign, and even then it is playable as ZC and not Empire, and worse it is an "under construction" eclipse to boot, with only one hardpoint.

Hey l know of a mod ofcourse a XML mod that will help not only get the eclipse for one credit but make everything else ONE CREDIT its so cool its for the empire corupt and rebels and heres the web site:http://www.cheathappens.com/show_download.asp?ID=22011
its a cheat mod for the 3 factions

Docter_Aap 01-02-2007 07:55 AM

but that would kinda take the challenge of a good GC war away wouldnt it?

wedge2211 01-02-2007 12:38 PM

That sounds...no fun at all.

Solid Snake 01-03-2007 07:35 AM

i agree that the eclipse should have been buildable in skirmishes/GC mode. would it be possible to create some type of mod to make it buildable in those modes? that would totally rule :)

ImpElite 01-03-2007 09:46 AM

there's already a few mods that include a buildable eclipse, can't really remember the names though..... :(

Docter_Aap 01-03-2007 10:41 AM

z3r0x addon mod has it. But i wish someone made the Eclipse with weapons (like the executor, lots of turbo lasers and stuff)

mrsparkle 01-03-2007 11:37 AM

The Eclipse is an "instant win" ship in skirmish so it wouldn't work. unlike the Executor which is powerful but slow and vulnerable...and with no "instant win" laser.

Plus, I think it's fuggin' ugly. It's like a giant stretched pyramid in space. That has nothing to do with game balance but I thought you should know :)

xhh2a 01-03-2007 07:38 PM

it is possible to kill the eclipse sinceit has no unlim. fighters to kill the bombers. It is also slow. Although it is extremly hard.......just slightly easier with bombers(vs eclipse alone, and executer alone in these comparisons),
I must say the complete model looks worse than in the trailers..........

The reason why he left the Eclipse was because he had drawn out billions of credits from the vault on coruscant, plus, if he did take it with him, he would be a huge target for the imperials.

popcorn2008 01-03-2007 10:09 PM

Vong is right, he didnt take the Eclipse because he didnt need it after all the money he got from various imperial sources.

EmperorPalpa 01-24-2007 02:33 PM

I have small problem. I found nice mod on http://everythingeaw.com/showthread.php?t=81. It allow you to buy Eclipse in GC. When i click mod download button (i'm registered) i see i'm not allow to download because i don't have permission. I don't understand. Please help or put it on Empire at war files. :mad:

magna mandaloe 01-28-2007 02:32 PM

and even if Zann did keep it that would throw the cannon completely off.

PoiuyWired 01-28-2007 03:52 PM

Other than that, how do you maintain such a ship of high technology? Well, unless you kidnap those techies too, then you should parobably take the Maw or something.

It would be a huge "I am Here" sign everytime it is seen. That is certainly not something Zann wants.

agree

mosherboyuk 01-31-2007 01:20 PM

It would be cool if someone could create a skirmish map where there's a captureable Eclipse, like mining facilities etc. So you would have to fight the fighters etc around the Eclipse to get control of it, but it would have to be a very largely unit filled map otherwise the fastest ships would get it first.

BanthaFodder01 02-15-2007 09:07 PM

You say Exclipse would be an instant win in a space battle because of it's super laser. I'm not sure how thats different than the Death Star II's super laser, I think it recharges faster even.

Anyways I think both should be buildable but take a long time to construct. The FoC is already over-powered even with the recent update, one eclipse would help. Also, they need to change the Death Star II - IG-88 scenario. I was at Bothuwui with my death star and right after going in GC view after the battle, Bothuwui blows up and with it the Executor, Palp, etc... Then you can't rebuild the Second Death Star, wonderful. I would be ok if the price rose and there was a timer, but at least let us rebuild it.

On top of all of that, the AI in this game SUCKS. units sometimes go off chasing enemies, Auto Resolve is horrible. One battle I had Darth, Palp, Thrawn, and a couple Star Destroyers. I put them in a battle with a lvl 3 space stations and 2 Venerators...everyone died and none of the enemy did. I realize you should fight battles but if the AI is gonna be biased as to who wins then what's the point in auto resolve.

Anyways, sorry for going off in a rant.

I Got The Executor In The First Empire At War But I Didnt No The Emporer Got One

DarthMaulUK 10-24-2008 08:23 AM

The Eclipse is only available in the campaign mode of the game - not in skirmish games
