Here's a question I'd like to get some opinions on...
Another of the main purposes of this mod is to make Heros very very relavant.
I pretty much started modding the game as soon as I bought it, barely a month ago, but what really got me modding was something that happened when playing a Galactic Conquest for the first time.
I sent a group of two Star Destroyers to the group of Asteroids on the galactic map and an attack commenced with my two Star Destroyers vs. 1 Millenium Falcon. It was great! Just like in Empire Strikes Back, and what topped it off was it played the exact same music for the scene.
Han eventually got away, but it was then I realized it would be a lot more fun if maybe in early tech games heros like that were very important if for anything, space battles.
So I'm thinking about upping the price of all Space units (especially for empire) so that building a Rebel or Imperial Navy takes a lot of time and credits. This way, hero battles Luke's Squadron vs. an Acclamator or the above scenario would be much more common and Heros would be more than just a bonus squad for your uber-invasion army.
So far, this mod has totally done away with the "I have uber land and space inavasion fleet at Tech 2 for the win" and focuses more on a very concentrated and strategic game. In testing, I set up a few Galactic Conquest Galaxy Maps where each and every planet is occupied by Pirate Forces of various intensity (some space only, some land only, some both).
The cool thing is, in playing the AI, both sides have sometimes spent numerous in-game days on the Galactic Map moving pieces like chess across different defendend planets where I the Empire focused intensly on knowing the Rebels every move in relation to Trade Routes. When I originally played the game, non of that really mattered at all, it was, stack pieces, invade, repeat. But planetary defense, having enough credits before an invasion to buy turrets, etc. are all vital due mainly to the large trooper presence in invading armies.
Anywho, sorry to ramble, but any feedback and thoughts are appreciated.
