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.

    Don't you want to have rapid-fire weapons in the game? <_<

    Depends on the unit. Increasing a unit's rate of fire also speeds up their attack animation - provided one is present. So with a lot of troops and walkers, giving them movie-style rapid fire weapons would result in a lot of weird Benny Hill animations. On top of that we'd have to slice down the attack strength of those units significantly so they don't just shred everything they can get a bead on.

    Not much use for them outside of maybe a couple heroes.
    Can heroes be "upgraded" to other heroes via technology?
    Yeah, that's a thing. As far as I know.

    The fire rates aren't actually all that high. They're roughly half to a third of what a decent WW2 machine gun can do at the infantry level... fighter cannons can get up there, but still not as fast as other things.

    Primary weapons consist of the dual anti-infantry guns. When a trooper is garrisoned inside of the tank it enables the secondary beam cannon weapon, which can cause significant damage to mechs and buildings.

    Still trying to figure out a way to implement the rocket attack.

    I don't suppose you're expanding the AT-AT's troop capacity? And did you split its guns between heavy cannons and anti-infantry blasters?<_<

    Capacity is to be determined. Can only carry infantry and light scout mechs.
