Welcome to Expanding Fronts
Star Wars Galactic battlegrounds: Expanding Fronts is a massive fan-made expansion that brings countless new units, gameplay features, and quality of life improvements to the classic LucasArts strategy game.



New Features
  • New Civilizations! Do battle with two entirely new playable civilizations; the seedy Zann Consortium crime syndicate, and the insectoid Geonosians. Each new civ is fully realized with a unique graphics set, as well as a competetive roster of new units and technologies.

  • New Units and Techs! The standard unit and tech tree roster of each civ has been enhanced with numerous new units and techs, allowing more gameplay options than ever before. Use Transport Mechs to ferry infantry into battle; dominate the skies with the Interceptor; annihilate coastal defenses with Monitors; and much more!

  • New Maps! Expanding Fronts provides players with over a dozen new Random Map scripts, based on various worlds from the Star Wars universe. Over 30 new terrain options, native buildings that provide benefits when captured, and an increase to maximum map size make these settings more unique than anything ever seen before in GB. From the wastelands of Jakku, to the snow-tipped peaks of Alderaan; the galaxy is yours to conquer!

  • Enhanced Scenario Editor! The barriers of the editor have been shattered with countless new enhancements. Off-grid object placement, new terrains, countless new props, and completely new triggers make designing complex and compelling scenarios easier than ever before!



    Can I help?
    Expanding Fronts is always looking for new helpers! We are currently in need of:
  • Skilled 3D artists who can create, animate, and render infantry, animals, structures, and vehicles.

  • AI scripters to help ensure computer players know how to make effective use of all of the new units, techs, and features.

    could you add a spy to the game, a light unit, hard detectable, and maybe some saboteurs with some damage against buildings, perfect for the rebels...

    i tested the game over weekend, and it seemed ok, but the GE sniper is a building? cause one can see the outline of other units nehind him. also i would say it is absolut the experience with those subfractions and if there would any for the naboo, especially - colaborating governement versus naboo rebels, and if all the civilisations get subfractions? this beta is already a very good start and i hope to see the whole expansion.
    also a notice - the techtree is not fully edited yet

    That isn't a patch; it's a complete HD remake of the game by a professional development studio.

    As I've said on the download page, this mod is amazing! But, there are a few major things that have been left out:

    - Republic Commandos (Republic)
    - AT-APs (Republic/Empire)
    - T4-Bs (Alliance)
    - T3-Bs (Alliance)
    - Crab Droids (Confederacy/Trade Federation)
    - Tri Droids (Confederacy/Trade Federation)
    - all of the Clone commanders that have been ignored here (Cody, Bly, Gree etc.) (Republic)
    - more frigates/starships (e.g. Nebulon-B, Lukrehulk Battleship, Victory I, Victory II, Acclamator II, etc.)
    - MPTL-2As (Alliance)
    - heroes/villains (Grievous, Dengar, 4-LOM, Ahsoka, Thrawn, etc.)
    - a fixed Darth Vader - we all have mods already installed, and you know that the Darth Vader has been messed up for a lot of us, although I don't know what caused it, so I have to resort to using "Imperial Commander" thus, I can't play the Darth Vader campaign!

    I know this is a long list, but these things are important! But, anyways, the mod is still looking great, and I could possibly work on some maps if needed - although I'm better at desert maps (Geonosis, Tatooine, Ryloth, etc.) snow maps (Hoth, Rhen Var, Alzoc III, etc.) and savanna (Naboo, Carida, Thyferra, etc.) maps. So, yeah. Lemme know!

    This Beta is only for the Empire. The fact that some things from other civs have been left out does not necessarily mean that they won't later be implemented. The modders are working to build it civ by civ, and the Empire is the only one that's ready for testing with the Beta.

    It's a long road that has no turning - It's never too late to mend.

    OK, I know I already told you some of the stuff I'd like to see added, but I have another request. You know how some of the Rebel and Imperial units are from Empire At War? Well, I was hoping you could add some of the other units, like:

    REBEL
    - T4-B
    - MPTL-2a Artillery
    - Gallofree HTT
    - A more to-scale GR-75 Transport
    - A more to-scale Corellian Corvette [AKA: Blockade Runner]
    - Nebulon-B Frigate
    - Corellian Gunboat
    - Marauder Cruiser
    - Assault Frigate
    EMPIRE
    - Tartan Patrol Cruiser
    - Acclamator II
    - Victory I
    - Broadside Cruiser
    - Immobilizer 418 [AKA: Interdictor]

    And, there are some others that are not from Empire At War.

    REBEL
    - Katana Dreadnaught
    - Nebulon B-2
    - T3-B
    - Skipray Blastboats
    EMPIRE
    - Dreadnaught
    - Carrack
    - IPV-1
    - Victory II
    - AT-AP
    - XR-85

    Yeah, I know this list is probably as long as the other one, if not longer, but the fact that you guys already got some stuff from EAW, it makes it seem like you could easily do more. I know this is still a beta, but these are just requests. I mean, since it IS still a beta, I will take advantage of this time period to give you ideas. Thanks.

    Before you go ahead and request every single thing on Wookiepedia, we're not adding anything and everything just for the sake of having it, otherwise we'd never be finished with this. It's hard enough finding or building the stuff we need. We've already got a plan as to what units are being put in, and there's really nothing you can list that we haven't already considered at some point - especially with the Empire.

    Also, in game, there'd be no difference between a Katana fleet Dreadnaught and the standard build of the cruiser. It doesn't include crew complements.

    I saw the trailer video for the mod as well as the screens of it in widescreen, but after I installed it, the game still doesn't support widescreen.
    Is my mod installation wrong or what? I really want to play in widescreen.

    There are some stability issues with the widescreen features, so they were not included in this release. Once it's working properly, we'll roll it out.

    Hi, I'm a mod designer from Age of kings heaven. I tried the empire beta several days ago and was really an awesome mod. Nice work!

    I saw you are looking for 2D/3D designers, and think I might be able to help a little bit. I've been modding AOK for a while, and since SWGB is quite similar to AOK, I think it would probably be similar modding it too. So here are two preview screenshoots of my work.





    If you think these graphics are good enough in quality, I'll be happy to make more for this mod. There are some restraints, though, like non of the SWGB Modding tools works on my PC(asked for help but found no reasons), so I'll be likely to have to send the unit graphics in bmp format to you. Also due to my limited 3D modelling skill, I'll be only able to make humanoid units now because I've got a good template setup of doing that. Thanks of reading my post.
