Point of clarification, I assume you're referring to "Galactic Conquest", as in the Battlfield 1942 "Star Wars" mod of the same name, rather than the SP game mode in Star Wars Battlefront of the same name.

You can download Galactic Conquest, the mod at LucasFiles.com.

seriously, who would pick GC over BF... BF has a larger team of fully trained professionals... BF is a retail game that has so many more options than GC.

I think i speak for everyone when i look at the polls and laugh at this thread.

GC, simply a mod, doesn't even compare in the same league to the accomplishment of Battlefront.

You've got the order wrong.

1. Play game.
2. Comment on it .

GC has tons of features not found in Battlefront, just like Battlefront has many features not in GC. And a lot of people prefer it over SWBF. Why? Different playing styles, I suppose. SWBF applies more to an arcade audience than GC does.

Yes, SWBF is a game by proffesionals, but then again, so were many horrible games, right (not to say SWBF sucks, though). I mean, I'd rather play Desert Combat than Conflict Zone, even though Conflict Zone is the proffesional game.

My point is that the resources and money put into a game says nothing about how good it is. It's like Blair Witch Project was low-budget while several cr[...]y movies were high-budget. Still, Blair Witch ruled. And Desert Combat, which was "just a mod", got Trauma Studios bought by DICE to help make a Battlefield 2 engine game. Why? Because the "little mod" was, in most peoples' eyes, even better than BF1942.

No duh ?! I expected people to vote overwhelmingly for GC! What is this, an SWBF fan site or something?!

No, you arrogant whip, you don't speak for the 3 people who voted against SWBF (joking).

I prefer BF, if only because it has the real SW music and SFX - I just couldn't immerse myself in GC without that stuff...

I know what you mean. Just play the music in the background using WinAmp and you'll be fine, though . I have a CD with all the tracks from Ep 4.

I was seriously disappointed with the GC mod! But my dreams of a good Star Wars multiplayer was answered with Battlefront

Not to sound like a bad loser , but what version did you play? It's 4,2 now.

If it was 4,2 you played, well, fair enough, you can't make a mod' that everyone likes. You might want to lock your door at night now, though .

sp SWBF owns GC

I admit I haven't played the latest edition of GC, but even with Dnamro's (the guy doing bot support) add-ons he could only do so much with BF1942's AI.

SWBF has excellent bot support, offers much better challenge and satisfication for players who can't go online. Better engine for Dynamic lighting effects, better physics for vehicles, and excellent detailed animations (players that swirl through the air from bombs, crawling and kneeling, etc).

From a single player standpoint SWBF offers so much more, and if you're looking at details and what not that the two engines have to offer.

Now for mp, GC has some pretty spiffy features not available to SWBF. Like Space battles and some of the variety is a bit better.

Give modders some time with SWBF, and maybe an expansion, and then give SWBF another comparison.

After all, this is only version 1.11, while GC is up to 4.2?

Very good points. No, GC doesn't have 'bot support, which of course is a let-down to people with 56k connections.

Excuse me, but my impression with SWBF is that vehicle physics are VERY simplified. But then again, you could call that "better" if you want it that way, of course.

I don't know what you are getting at here. You certainly can kneel and crawl in GC... Am I right in assuming you mean that the animations are better?

Yup. And maybe we could post the poll on a different site than a fan site for GC or SWBF ?

You downloaded it and you don't know about the site?
http://www.galactic-conquest.net.

They're working on Release 5 right now, although we have no official release date. I'd guess january or february '05, though. It'll have a good deal of vehicles and maps and other features. And some fixes, I hope.

"Anyhows", sorry you didn't like it (you might consider giving it a second chance, though).

I really need to try Battle front somehow.. Where is that goddamned demo?! Gee, I almost consider downloading a pirate copy just to get to know what it's like (which I of course won't, knowing what goes into making those games ). Sigh.

and satellite internet users, which I am. Also Lan gamers and those who desire co-operative play.

The BF engines physics are much simpler. For example when ground vehicles explode thier remains bounce on the surface, and wiggle. SWBF doesn't do that, at least not to the BF engine's degree.

Yup. I'm a bells and whistles kind of guy. I love FX and attention to detail. GC has alot of that, but unfortunately they are very limited by the BF42 engine. Do they have any plans to port to the BF2 engine when it comes out? I know LucasArts has their eyes on GC and its only by LA's grace that they still are even allowed to keep going. LA might not allow them to port to a better engine, much like they have prohibited them to have Light Sabres.

Ha! Yeah! GC has a legion of loyal fans, obviously I'm replying to one now. They have put alot of work into their mod of that there is no doubt, and they deserve some praise for that. But there are so many features in SWBF that I have to chose it instead. Not that people can't play both though. (unless you have 56K or Satellite internet)

As far as mods for SWBF. I'm hoping for ones that build on the Star Wars experience. I'm hoping for (balanced) light Sabres, Space battles, custom maps, and maybe some custom armies and vehicles (Kotor maybe). The skies the limit. All with bot support hopefully. :P

Yeah, nothing beats blowing up an AT-ST and watching the head bunny-jump around. I hope they'll fix that for the next release.

LA hasn't prohibited GC from having light sabres, Jedi, jet packs, etc. It's an internal decision which I support fully as GC is centered on the life of grunts and the average soldier in SW didn't have those things.

A port to BF2 would be interesting, but I'd prefer they didn't as they'd have to discontinue work on BF1942 then as otherwise they'd be way too busy.

Right. And as far as I know, they have two different playing styles anyways.

Maybe there'll be a Star Wars mod'. Imagine: Battlefront with SW content (joking)!
