ICW: GC Selection Layout

Friday May 26, 2017

We've always tried to cover as much of the feeling of the post-Endor galaxy, as well as we could. Sometimes, though, especially for new players, it's hard to know exactly what you're getting yourself into. In 2.2, with 20+ playable campaigns and 8 playable factions, this is especially true. With documentation being one of our goals for 2.2, we're trying to find ways to provide as much useful information to players, in the most convenient way possible.This is a relatively minor change, but will hopefully help people get into the mod. First, we've sectioned off the GC selection list into three primary categories (plus the tutorial); multi-era, being the main "grand campaigns" of the mod, single-conflict, being those GCs related to a single war or military campaign, and Infinities, being extra game modes like From the Ground Up and Survival, or flavour scenarios like Empires at War, not based on any canon storyline. This should make it easier to find the kinds of GCs you're looking for.The second part of the change is the faction dropdown list being sorted into faction types: first, the major galactic powers, second the Imperial Warlords, and the third minor powers category, which may give an idea of what a potential 2.3 could focus on...Again, not a huge change, but this should hopefully help people not get hopelessly stranded in a sea of drop down lists and scroll bars. ...

ASC: New Republic 1.1 Overview Video

Thursday May 11, 2017

We've usually done some general faction overviews for each faction, talking roughly about rosters and whatnot. For this release, I've decided to go a bit more in depth with additional videos showing off some of the stuff that's less conducive to a text update without it being 50 paragraphs long. In these videos, I'll go over all the major tech, roster and ability updates for each faction in 1.1, and ending with a separate videos on the heroes. This time, it's the New RepublicThis isn't replacing the other text faction profiles when we add factions (the Hapans will be getting their full treatment after 1.1's release), it's supplemental. I'll also be recording full playthroughs for Corey Loses.In this video, we talk about some shuffling in the a new New Republic unit, the new capital ship abilities, Empress upgrades. ...

Fall of the Republic Announcement and FAQ

Wednesday May 10, 2017

From the creators of Imperial Civil War and Ascendancy comes Thrawn's Revenge III: Fall of the Republic, covering events in the twilight years of the Galactic Republic and the Clone Wars. For millennia, the Galactic Republic has been a source of peace and order for the galaxy. More recently, corruption has begin to spread through its institutions. Across the galaxy, beings become disillusioned with the status quo and rise to challenge the Republic...Follow Fall of the Republic on ModDB - Thrawn's Revenge Discussion ForumsA Republic in Decline"I am quite convinced that ten thousand more systems will rally to our cause, with your support, gentlemen."-Count Dooku, aka Darth TyranusHello everyone! On April 1st, we released a rough teaser trailer for Fall of the Republic, which for some reason people thought was fake. Then, a few weeks ago, we confirmed it had resumed development in our Thrawn's Revenge historical timeline, the first part of our celebration of 11 years as a mod team. We were going to hold off on doing a proper announcement for a little while, but there's been some common questions we wanted to take a moment to address, as well as break down the way the mod will work.Fall of the Republic is a prequel-era mod in which we want to recreate the galactic situation in Star Wars in the last years of the Republic. We aim to bring the feel of our post-Endor mod, Imperial Civil War, into this time period, adapting that model to one suitable for the era. In the same way that Imperial Civil War tries to shine a light on some of the mid-level players and events like the Yevetha, Hapans and Warlord factions on the galactic stage of the post-Endor period, we hope to explore some of the timeline beyond just the Clone Wars themselves. While the Separatist Crisis and the Confederacy of Independent Systems became the standout conflict, the decades leading up to the declaration of the Galactic Empire saw significant military buildup across various factions, where certain events swinging a different way could have brought different challenges to the Judicial Forces Republic in the early parts of this period, with a constant debate about the virtues of re-militarization within the Republic. People can speculate on what that means, but for now, we'll leave it at that. Our history of developing Imperial Civil War and Ascendancy will be informing how we structure the mod, release-wise. In order to better focus development on specific parts of the mod, ensuring people get regular, more polished releases and giving us a more solid basis to work off of, instead of trying to tackle everything at once, we will be starting a bit more simply with the Republic and CIS, and working up to our broader goals. Into a New Era"They will have the numbers. We will have the Force."- Jedi Master Saesee Tinn, Fifth Battle of QotileOne of the more prominent changes in Imperial Civil War versus the base game is a tech system primarily based on "eras" (being Imperial regimes in ICW) as opposed to a directly tiered, traditional tech system where you start with, for example, corvettes and work your way up to larger Star Destroyers. This is a model we will be translating into Fall of the Republic. The first release will start covering the major conflict of the time period, being the Clone Wars, broken into three eras; the first, second and third years of the war. The playable factions in version 0.5 will be, of course the Galactic Republic and Confederacy of Independent Systems. Considering the factions themselves did go through some standard technological advancement and research during this period, there will be elements of that as well, but it will be based on in-universe factors, instead of just ship A is stronger, so it's era 3. Era progression will be based on a mix of events and the passage of time, with different research options and other events possible based on the era in which you are playing.We will be doing a faction profile for the CIS and Galactic Republic at some point in the future, covering their unit and hero rosters for v0.5. But for now, we want to cover some of the more common questions we've been asked.Will this interfere with Imperial Civil War 2.2? When will Fall of the Republic be available? Fall of the Republic will have absolutely no impact on the release of Imperial Civil War 2.2. Our goal is to build FotR off of  Imperial Civil War 2.2 as a starting base, so dedicated work will not be started on Fall of the Republic until Imperial Civil War is in testing, which is also when you'll start seeing screenshots and video of the first Fall of the Republic release. Until then, the only work we'll be doing is on assets also needed for ICW (ie, the new Providence art assets). As mentioned above, we're keeping our plans for that first release less ambitious; we'll be doing the basic framework for mod and the two main factions, which should not take too long to get out after 2.2. With the mod tools Pox and I are working on, like the GC creator, a lot of the logistics for this become a lot simpler. If there are any talented 3D modelers or texture artists out there who would like to help speed this along, they can contact us at ThrawnsRevenge@gmail.comAren't there already Clone Wars mods for Empire at War? Yes, and for a long time, this is why reviving FotR wasn't really on our radar. However (and this isn't criticism of the existing mods, simply a matter of taste) the more I started playing those mods, the more I was thinking about what our own version of that would look like. Yes, it still involves clones fighting droids and Venators fighting Lucrehulks, but there can be different ways to handle that. Some people may prefer the existing mods, some people may prefer our version, but ultimately we enjoy making mods, and we make what we want to play, so really it just means more options.Does this mean no Stellaris ship packs? I'd still like to release some of our TR stuff for Stellaris, but as it is, there's a decent selection of Star Wars ships available for those who want to play with them, so I'm less concerned about that for the moment.What about the Clone Wars Cartoon? While the mod will be based in the Legends expanded universe, there have been some questions as to how we'll handle the Clone Wars cartoon. While the more recent Clone Wars cartoon (the one with Ahsoka) is technically part of Legends, it did introduce some inconsistencies (in star Wars? No!). We won't be completely disregarding the cartoon, but in cases where there is a conflict, we'll usually go with the non-cartoon source. There are some places, like the Essential Guide to Warfare, that retconned some of these issues, drawing from the cartoon and other sources, and for us, Essential Guide to Warfare pretty much trumps anything else. Basing the mod in Legends allows us to use some of the characters who would become major Imperial and Rebel figures during the earlier days of their careers. ...

Peltast-Class Star Destroyer (New Empire of the Hand Ship)

Saturday May 06, 2017

The result of cooperation between former Imperial and Ascendancy engineers within the empire of the Hand, the Peltast was one of several fusions of the basic Star Destroyer form and Ascendancy modifications to meet the needs of combat in the Unknown Regions. Most Unknown Regions combat involved fleets of smaller vessels, however occasionally groups with larger ships required pacification, like rogue Killik nests with massive Shard-class capital ships.The Peltast was designed essentially as a mobile, self-reliant Megamaser railgun, borrowing some elements of the old Confederacy project, the Subjugator, albeit on a smaller scale. Because of the large amounts of concentrated power necessary for the main gun, the Peltast is incredibly fragile for a ship of its size. ...

Minor Factions

Note:  This section showcases the unique units and heroes available to the Minor Factions in Thrawn’s Revenge.  In some cases they may also have access to some of the same units used by the main playable factions.  This is especially true of the Imperial Warlords and the Duskhan League (who both have access to Imperial technology).

Hapes Consortium

The Hapes Cluster was first settled over four thousand years ago by a group of pirates who discovered safe transit routes through the Transitory Mists.  The pirates, known as the Lorell Raiders, established a base on Hapes and brought back all kinds of treasure, along with beautiful women abducted from across the galaxy.

The women remained on Hapes to raise children while the men continued their pirate raids on shipping outside the cluster; until a fateful battle between the Lorell Raiders and the combined forces of the Jedi Order and Galactic Republic destroyed the pirate fleet and left the women and children cut off from the rest of the galaxy.

The women left behind vowed that no man would rule them again and formed a new society with a government led by a single woman given the title of Queen Mother.


For over three thousand years the Hapes Consortium maintained its isolation from outside influences as it expanded throughout the cluster and colonized more of the rich worlds.  Finally, in 8 ABY, the Consortium opened its borders as it treated with the New Republic with an eye towards a potential alliance.

Note:  Due to their extended isolation Hapan turbolaser weaponry is significantly outdated and takes at least twice as long to recharge as the more modern models employed by the rest of the galaxy.

Duskhan League

The Duskhan League, originally established as the Yevethan Protectorate, was a political federation comprised of N’zoth and the other eleven Yevethan colonies, collectively known as “The Twelve”, settled by their sublight starships.

A highly xenophobic and isolationist species, the first major confrontation between the Yevetha and other species came when the Galactic Empire seized control of the Koornacht Cluster and established a series of shipyards on N’zoth and nearby planets.

Taking note of the speed at which the Yevethans mastered new technologies, the Empire proceeded to enslave the populace and put them to work as skilled labour in its shipyards, building, repairing and modifying vessels of the Imperial Starfleet.

After the Battle of Endor caused the fragmentation of the Empire, Ysanne Isard recalled much of the Imperial fleet to defend the Core Worlds, including those of Black Sword Command in the Koornacht Cluster.  Before the Imperials were able to complete their withdrawal and destroy the shipyards, the Yevethans staged an uprising and succeeded in capturing intact the entire task force, including a Super Star Destroyer.

Making use of the technical skills developed during their decades of slavery, the newly reformed Duskhan League set about developing new starships of its own before seeking to expand beyond the cluster and cleanse the galaxy of other species.

Playable In

- The following single-player Galactic Conquest scenarios:

  • Black Fleet Crisis

Imperial Warlords

The death of Emperor Palpatine at the Battle of Endor, and the loss of the Executor and second Death Star at the hands of the Rebel fleet, sent shockwaves rippling through the Imperial establishment.

With no-one in a position to take the Imperial throne many formerly loyal officers, including Grand Admirals and Moffs, decided that their best option to was to strike out on their own, using the ships under their command to secure territory and resources and forge their own personal fiefdoms.

The first to defect was Admiral Harrsk.  Present at the Battle of Endor, he refused to obey the commands of a junior officer who had inherited command of the fleet after the destruction of the Executor.  As news of the Emperor’s death trickled out others followed, including Admirals Krennel, Delvardus and Teradoc along with Warlord Zsinj.

Although the title of Warlord was originally a ceremonial rank awarded to high-ranking officers by the Emperor, including Grand Admiral Thrawn and Grand Moff Zsinj, it became generally associated with surviving Imperial military and political leaders after Endor, many of whom unilaterally styled themselves as Warlords or used other similarly grand titles.
