Jedi Force Powers - Part 1
This modpack gives Force powers to the heroes of Episode I. You can train these heroes in a regular game:
Qui-Gon Jinn ..... RN Fortress
Obi-Wan Kenobi ..... RN Hvy Weapons Factory
Darth Maul ..... TF Fortress
Each hero comes in two versions: Force and Pilot.
The Force hero is a cannon mod, with multiple Force powers. These powers can include:
Lightsaber: Melee combat. Bonus vs Jedi/Sith.
Deflect: 'Deflect' lasers. Hero is more resiliant, but he cannot move.
Throw: Throw your lightsaber. Bonus vs mechs.
Push: Attack with Force energy. Bonus vs infantry and workers.
Lightning: Same effect as Push.
Jump: Jump over any terrain. No attack.
Each hero has a different combination of powers:
Lightsaber, Deflect, Throw, Jump
Lightsaber, Deflect, Push, Jump
Lightsaber, Deflect, Throw, Lightning, Jump
To switch powers, click the Next Power icon: , or type hotkey P.
The Pilot hero is a regular Jedi/Sith knight. When the pilot picks up a holicron, he changes into a spacecraft:
Qui-Gon Jinn ..... Royal Starship
Obi-Wan Kenobi ..... Jedi Starfighter
Darth Maul ..... Sith Infiltrator
If the spacecraft is destroyed (or deleted), it leaves the pilot behind, as a survivor.
Bonus Unit - Explosive Scout
The RN and TF can build an Explosive Scout, instead of a grenade trooper. The scout explodes when it hits an enemy object. It has a bonus vs buildings, especially walls and gates. The style of the scout depends on the civ:
RN Explosive Scout ..... Podracer
TF Explosive Scout ..... Sith Probe Droid
Other Changes (All Civs)
Air cruisers are stronger, and more effective vs aircraft.
Air transports have garrision = 25.
Anti-air weapons fire red lasers.
Only one copy of each hero (Force or Pilot) can be trained at a given time.
All heroes have Force Shields.
Force heroes get +1 range when you research Hvy Weapons Engineers at the Research Center.
Force heroes will attack buildings automatically, but will not attack enemy units unless instructed to do so. If you want your hero to fight without supervision, train the pilot type instead.
No pummel or artillery for RN.
No bounty hunters for RN or TF.
No grenade troopers for RN or TF.
No regular cannons for any civ.
TF Battleship (Air Cruiser): Redfive / Lord_Bane88
Sith Infiltrator: GothicLegionaire

Darth Maul zaps infantry with Force Lightning.
Obi-Wan jumps over a wall.

(Insert Rating analysis here)
Ok, the jedi portion of this mod was great, but the Air Cruiser was buffed way too much, WAY too much, takes maybe 15 anti-air ships to take out 1 air cruiser and its just buffed to the max, makes the game very unbalanced.
had to uninstall this, wish i could just have had the jedi portion stand-alone
