The Galactic Senate: Republic Senate

Author File Description
The Crazed Ewok
File Details
Clone Campaigns required?: Yes
Number of players: 8
This version of the classic SENATE game will revolutionize the way you play your game. With exciting new features, such as a voting system and more power to the people, I hope this will always be the Senate game of your choice!

Galactic Republic Senate is based off of the Old Republic, before the Empire came. In addition, two more The Galactic Senate games will be released. These are "Galactic Imperial Senate" and "New Republic Senate". These will be released soon by the GeniEd Masters group!

This file includes a Readme, a map for planets, and the game file itself.

Instructions: Unzip the files to any folder. Move the .sc1 file to your Scenario folder (usually C:Program Files/Lucasarts/Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds/Game/Scenario) and move the Readme and the JPG file to any place of your choosing. I suggest you read the Readme before playing the game.

This is VERSION 1.0

This project has been created by The Crazed Ewok, proud member of GeniEd Masters (GEM)!

THE GOOD:

WOW! the eyecandy is GREAT! The planets are beutiful. Trees, lava, ao on and what not. This is one of the most beautiful Senates I have ever seen (except for Coroscant which isn't that great) Also, the instructions are very detailed and will explain nearly EVERY feature of the scn. Very good:D Also, some very neat features like Jedi Purge and Proclaim self emporer makes this seem more realistic.



THE BAD: First, the planets are incrediblely tiny. Most of the map is just space. Now, while I prefer for there to be SOME space in senates, this takes it to an extreme. Most of the planets will run out of resources VERY quickly and will leave you with a tiny barren strip of terrain. For all how beautiful they look, even the largest planet is much smaller than it should be. This makes the game much tougher and less fun, as it takes a lot longer to get to any other planets and it makes almost every player need to have a second planet as soon as half an hour into the game. This is impossble with 8 players, for obvious reasons. Next, while I oppose all powerful senates, this swings it to the other extreme. The Senate starts with about six fast figters and that's about it. So, a member could conceiveably overthrow the senate before he reached tech level 4! Although it is *possible* to make the host more powerful, it's better in theory than in practice. This requires the senators to bring their senator to a certain booth to vote the senate emergency powers which allow it to spawn stuff. Unfortunately, this is near impossible. For one, when I played it, I couldn't get anyone to understand the concept. (At that time, I was the host and an alliance of two players were overthrowing me) They just didn't seem able to comprehend that. Next is the fact that by the time emergency powers is needed, many of the senators are dead. If they all are, you're screwed:p. Next, there isn't much to do. No special quests. No nothing. Just build and destroy. Nothing that actually does anything on the planets (although granted that some are better than others and cost more) About the cost, don't ask. WHAT A NIGHTMARE!! Noone would buy the planets or even listen. This makes it so that some players will get shortchanged and get a crappy planet, while another person will get the creme'de'la'creme. Unfortunately, alot of this senate is better in theorey than in practice.
