There are a few mods out there (maybe more
) that let you play using the ENTIRE galaxy.
I tried this with Bryants/Grey's mod, and was kinda dissappointed with the gameplay. The initial few minutes are a quick land grab in every direction (since the galaxy feels REALLY close together- you can go from point A to almost any point B in a matter of seconds), then the ai goes nuts all over the place.
What did you all think about the BIG DANCE?
A request for modders, I would love to see a mod that creates a galaxy that is somewhat linear, with a strip of planets 1-3 "wide", with the empire at one end and the rebs at the other. That way there's a front to the war. As it is now, it just feels frantic.
