One of the team leaders of the Star Wars: Legacy of War mod had emailed Petroglyph in March concerning SSDs, and he got back a "yes" answer. He didn't specify whether it will be a hero unit or a regular produceable unit.

You make such a big deal over nothing. The SSD is just a ship.

Just a ship? JUST A SHIP !!!! the Super Star Destroyer is one of the most central thing in an Imperialists life. Only three things come before:
1. The Emperor
2. He's Ship
3. Lord Vader

Do not say "just a ship" Its bigger, badder and a lot more powerful than anything any one else can field.

Now that I got that of my chest, I'm glad they finally includded it.

And I wonder how expensive it is. I'm sure it will bankrupt many planets just building it.

Oh, don't forget about those A-Wings!

I'm glad to see that the SSD will be in the game, because Star Wars just isnt the same without it. Now lets just hope theirs TIE Interceptors... (or Defenders for that matter lol)

Just a small note on the SSD.

StarWars.Com has yet again updated the Executors lenght. This time to a more realistical 19km (abit too long in my opinion now though , but much closer than before).

Thanks to a certain member (Makwu) over at the Petroglyph Un-Official forums for making me aware of this.

The weapons compliment has also been boosted abit, but is still far from being realistic yet though.

pffft here we go again...

Eclipse - 18 Km
SSD - 13 Km
SD - 1600m

Those are the numbers I accept. They've changed the numbers so much I don't care what anyone says anymore.

You can't have an ISD measuring 1.6 if you accept the SSD to be only 13km

If you accept the SSD to be 13km long, then you also must accept that the ISD is 1.2km long then, as the SSD is 11 times longer (almost 12 in StarWars.com's case)

It's at least 8 or so times larger. So it's all the same.

Suit yourself.

But even StarWars.com admits now that it's around 11 times as large.
Which has been said by fans all over the world for years, and backed up with evidence and measurements.

I agree with starwars.com because it is the official website of star wars. It has first say on everything in my book.

Prob.
Yet being around 13 is what seems right for me, just a guess though.
And is the ultimat weapon exept the Death Star, but the Death Star is a Death Star. So its not like you are going to want to fight it, just dont underestimate it.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but don't most of the books (eg. X-wing series) say it's 8km long?

Yeah, so?

It's 11-12 miles long, roughly 17.6 to 19 km long, and that's a fact.

Just because it's mentioned over and over again (though some sources has been stating the propper lenght in the past aswell, not just the 8km fallacy introduced by WEG), doesn't make it correct.

It's like with the "shield" domes. Just because it's mentioned over and over again (though, again, not all sources has done the same misstake in the past) doesn't make it right.

Here is the proof:

1) The SSD is a fan favorite
2) Petro designers have stated "Super weapons" plural.
3) C&C was a big fan of super weapons, same designers
4) That have stated that they will even include some EU content. I'm sure they would get all ROTJ content in first
5) The size demonstrations of the space stations shows the a SSD wouldn't be too much for the engine to handle

There is your proof

EDIT: Wow, I haven't used this account since 02 : ) How embarrasing. Krath Imperium, nice...

Ok It is now official that the SSD is not in the game. An official petro designer posted on the unofficial petro forums, and here's a link:

http://swempireatwar.10.forumer.com/...er=asc&start=0

Look near the bottom of the page. He also gives out some other really juicy info. Such that the game only goes up to battle of yavin.

Though he does say it is a possibility for future expansions.

Hmm, we're restricted to 3 years gameplay?

That is odd.

Or do they mean we only get 3 years worth of research to play around with?

I guess, since no SSD, there won't be a ISD mkII either then.

Of course that makes sense. They can get $30 more dollars per person to buy an expansion with all the units that we wanted in the original. I mean how can you do an expansion on to an open ended game like EaW is supposed to be. I think the expansions will just be adding units and or new sides perhaps.

Personally, I dont mind the idea of expansion packs. Yes they cost extra money but it costs alot of money to make them.

I like the idea of Empire At War sprouting more expansions - maybe an Empire Strikes Back esq one followed by Return Of The Jedi (for example). From what I have seen from the Galactic Map, there's plenty of room to expand it and include more planets.

The new Dawn Of War, Winter Assault expansion gave us new maps, new campaigns and just 1 new faction. Which is good and works well. The only thing I didnt like was the 25(approx $45) price tag!

EaW has the scope I believe to really give us a long lasting RTS experience.

well.. for me 40$ definately make a difference. content, which must be in the original game, cant be sold in an expansion... that just doesnt make sense in my honest opinion ;(

considering the new info, the solid wall, which forces me to buy the game, gets full of holes :'(

.. and no, its not because of that SSD.

I agree with you now that I have thought it over. they release a few expansions (ESB,ROTJ,post ROTJ) and each one has new units but also new planets. That way you would have a larger galaxy, new units, and possibly a new faction.

Well, there is the fact that the game has an end date, which is the beginning of ANH.

That turns me off some. I don't like restrictive RTS', especially the kind of restrictions I just mentioned. An RTS should go on till one side is the victor.
