Which map and factions are you trying to use?

We unfortunately can't do that. All factions beyond the third seem to load UI information for the Underworld (EotH), which also means the EotH has to be the Imperial one, so the Warlords can use it. It's not ideal, but it's not something we can work around.

One of our long term goals is to redo the UI art as thoroughly as possible, and the first step in this is icons. While even that is still in progress, you can see here the first phase, some of the ship icons. The new style is much more clean, and the background on the build bar should distract from them far less. This style we plan to apply to all ships and vehicles, and then we hope to start improving hero icons as well.

With 2.3, we hope to start getting into the main HUD backgrounds and start making whatever quality of life updates to the UI layout we need to to accomodate either new features, or simply make it feel a bit fresher (for now, for example, the filter buttons feel rather out of place).

There will be a level four shipyard in the future, but no, we don't know what we'll use for the design yet. They will not be armed, since they are shipyards, not space stations, and there's a plethora of other armed defense station options.

Getting a laptop rather than a desktop does mean you'd have to make some sacrifices on performance, but generally in that case you should try to look for something that might be a bit bulkier, cause you save money on not needing as much miniaturization

I'd suggest waiting for the manual.

It will likely be copy image address or something else similar, then.

A little while ago, I started my final preview playthrough serie son Corey Loses for Imperial Civil War 2.2, covering the Empire's End GC scenario as the Imperial Remnant. Check it out for a full demonstration of how era change mechanics work in 2.2, and a bunch of other stuff.

Well we'll need to do more than one round, but 2.2 releases at the end of the month, so if you want to send stuff in for future consideration that'd be fine as well

I submitted my audition on Friday. When can I expect to hear back?

Once the 10th hits, Whey will start getting back to people in waves

Other mods have Tie and Xwings, simply just add them.
1) make them expensive
2) create building (hangar) which can spam fighter for planetary defense.

Yeah other mods have them, but they also still tend to fall within one of those two issues that I mentioned- it's very easy for gameplay to became very air-unit centric. Like I said, you either have them be representative of their actual strength, in which case they wreck everything pretty easily, or you try to make them balanced and you really just have an airspeeder that looks like a fighter without doing anything that you'd expect a fighter to be able to do.

One of our big concerns with work on ground in 2.2 was trying to get air units to a point where they feel useful but don't become the powerhouses that they very often were in 2.15, and using ground fighters, you're basically introducing a unit that has to feel that way to feel correct, and you have to balance around that, in which case you'd basically need it to take multiple pop cap (and which makes it particularly bad for a garrison unit), which isn't always ideal either. Trying to base balance on just stuff like credit cost isn't a great thing to do, because, basically that doesn't make you feel any better when you're actually in the battle and they feel oppressively powerful.

This is why I've said if we're going to reimplement ground fighters, it would be in a different way that's not an actual standard unit.

It's the result of an AI evaluator that gets a bit screwy, not really an intentional thing in and of itself.

We tend to avoid having starfighters in ground battles for balance reasons. Either they're appropriately powerful and they're the only thing that ends up mattering, or they're basically just regularly powered airspeeders that happen to look like starfighters, which isn't great either. If fighters are ever worked back into ground battles, it would be through heavily-gated abilities.

Side note before anyone suggests it that we also don't like the Warlords model. We don't think the basic design of the ship is good, and would require a major overhaul while making it. It's a lot of work to go through that we've tried before and never been successful with to end up with a ship that's super close to the Nebula and would likely only be available in one era.

The same issue would apply to the 2.2 demo as 2.15, the changes which I believe sorted it out were made after the demo.

There's a known issue accross most EaW mods to some extent which has become more of a problem since the official patches with saves. We think it's not an issue in 2.2 so far, but it's unlikely we'll be able to issue a patch for 2.15 before 2.2's release
