Hello everyone!
This is a Reskin and an Expansion of the "Distant Worlds Extended" Mod by Haree78 ( www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=3141149 )
based on the Star Wars Universe.
Not yet a Total Conversion, but we'll get there eventually...


The Mod is set 15 years after "Episode VI: Return of the Jedi" and includes a Prebuilt Map, Star Wars Characters, Races, Ships, Flagshapes, Planets and Stations, and a New Soundtrack from the Star Wars movies and other epic SciFi Videogames.



"The War between the Empire and the Rebels has ended,
and the New Republic is struggling to bring peace in a divided galaxy.
Meanwhile, some dangerous and old threats seem to be nearing the Core."


FEATURES:
  • 22 Races included:
    Bothan, Cathar, Chiss, Gungan, Human, Hutt, Ithorian, Jawa, Jedi, Killik, Mandalorian, Moncalamari, Ortolan, Rakata, Rodian, Sith, Toydarian, Trandoshan, Twilek, Vong, Wookie, Zabrak.

  • Planet names changed according to the Star Wars Galaxy.

  • 23 Characters included:
    Han Solo, Jabba the Hutt, Jacen Solo, Jaina Solo, Karrde, Kyle Katarn, Lando Calrissian, Leia Organa Solo, Luke Skywalker, Darth Malgus, Mandalore the Ultimate, Mandalorian Diplomat, Mara Jade Skywalker, Darth Maul, Mon Mothma, Darth Nihilus, Nom Anor, the Night Sisters, Lady Lumiya, Sith girl Apprentice, Grand Admiral Thrawn, Aayla Secura, Twi'lek's Queen. (and more to come)

  • Ships and Stations changed according to respective factions.

    VERSION 1.0 UPDATES:

  • General Bug Fixes.

  • 2 New Characters:
    - Ahsoka Tano (Jedi)
    - Greedo (Rodian)

  • "Racebiases.txt" file modified to balance the different Races and their interactions according to the SW Universe.

  • New (this time functioning) Prebuilt Map.

  • New Pirate Images (Haree78's 'Alternative Pirate Images' Mod).

  • New Star Wars Flagshapes:
    Black Sun, Chiss Ascendancy, Confederacy of Independent Systems,
    Galactic Empire, Galactic Federation of Free Alliances,
    Galactic Republic, Jedi Order, Mandalorian, New Galactic Empire,
    New Jedi Order, New Republic, Old Republic, Rebel Alliance,
    Sith Empire, Star Wars Havoc Squad, Yuuzhan Vong Empire.

  • New Star Wars Original Music and epic SciFi Soundtracks by:
    Artem Bank http://artembank.bandcamp.com/
    Daft Punk https://www.youtube.com/user/DaftPunkVEVO
    John Williams https://itunes.apple.com/artist/john-williams/id63748

    -- ( Please read the 'Legal and Credits' txt file in the Sounds folder. ) --

  • General Races balancing.







Previous 0.8 Version here: https://mega.co.nz/#!EdIHnLTb!mS53Geaped-DZ45u9R8z_v6cOBeKZc14KMgKCj059ZU
and here: www.strategyinformer.com/pc/distantworldsuniverse/mod/52918.html



HOW TO INSTALL THE MOD:

  1. Unzip the file.
  2. Put the folder named "Star Wars Ancient Fears" inside " C:\Program Files (x86)\Slitherine Ltd\Distant Worlds Universe\Customization\ "
  3. You're done!
  4. Now open the game and go to CHANGE THEME.
  5. Click on the "Star Wars Ancient Fears" mod, then click on "Switch Theme" and wait.
  6. Click on START NEW GAME, choose your favourite faction, and click on 'Play Selected Galaxy and Faction'.
  7. Enjoy!


--- IMPORTANT!!! IF YOU HAVE THE PREVIOUS 0.7 VERSION (not listed here), THE PREBUILT MAP DOESN'T WORK. IT CREATES A GXHAB ERROR. SO PLAY A CUSTOM GAME INSTEAD OF THE INCLUDED MAP!!! ---

Please tell me about the problems you encounter.
I hope to improve the Mod by adding new Races, Characters, Ships and Maps in the future.

I'm getting a crash playing this. I'm not sure if it's the mod or the game. Can someone help?

GxHab is the error. If someone can tell me how to upload a screen shot I will be happy to.

You can post the image on something like ImageShack or TinyPic and write the url here, without (http) and (www) if the forum doesn't let you.
Can you describe what does the error say and how did you install the Mod?
Also, have you got Distant Worlds Universe, or an earlier version?

So you know i'm getting the same error as him, the computer completely freezes until i click that okay button or i'd screen cap it for you.....
I can tell you though that I installed the mod by unzipping files straight into the customization folder.
I am running universe.
If you want as I can reproduce this error with any race in about 5 minutes I can try getting more info for you right now

***edit after some trial and error it is only able to be reproduced by doing the actual planned scenario....running it as a custom game works just fine, so I can only imagine there is a missed comma or something somewhere, lol, but I dunno

[[ That's strange. There seems to be some problems with a ruin I placed somewhere.
Can you explain how do you get the error, so that I can reproduce it in the game?
Maybe it happens when you discover a ruin in a particular planet? ]]

EDIT: Ok, I also get the error everytime I play the Map, at around 2300.06.05.
Apparently it's caused by a ship that tries to find a ruin and doesn't find the ruin or the empire which the ruin refers to.

So the only fix for now is to play a custom game and not the Map itself.
I hope that I will manage to fix it. If not, I will create a new Map.

Aye, I got it as well. If you want I can check the date and location. For me it was when I found a planet with a new race.

Regardless, good work and thanks; will continue to play Sandbox with it.

Courage,

Tony

For some reason, the game keeps crashing approx. 6 months into the mod

Just re-read the OP, will try Custom game.

Question....did you mod out the Shakturi or the Ancient Guardians?

***Edit....I have started going through all the main playable races to see if any of them would typically discover something around this particular time...one down....New Republic finds nothing at this time, will be updating....

No I did not. I have had better success playing this mod in Custom galaxy mode though- no probs thus far that way. Will do as suggested and see how that goes.

Interesting. It could be because I deleted some Help files that referred to the Extended Mod races.
Does it happen only in the prebuilt Map or even on a Custom Game?

It happened on the prebuilt map. I was playing Sith, and there was a Chiss planet nearby.

When I clicked on the link, I saw a race picture that certainly belonged to the DW Extended. I failed to read the article in time to confirm what race it was on.

I'm trying to make a Map that doesn't crash. In the meantime you should play custom games only, because the prebuilt Map crashes every time at 2300.06.something.

    Great mod! In my game sometimes pirates deal with themselves to attack some empire - for instance "The Dark Moon Interstellar have made a secret deal with a pirate faction, the Dark Moon Interstellar, to attack ships and bases of Imperial Chiss Realm!" and so on. Also for some reason population grown is really really slow 1-2%.

    I wanted to stop in and thank you also for your hard work! :) I'm a noob at this game, but the Star Wars mod is helping me get into it and learn it.

    BTW, in case you're interested, I have a lot of star wars music tracks that I could donate to this mod. I've been using them and it really adds to the immersion.

    Looks like a really good mod, except for the characters. Alot of them are dead long before the events of the new republic. If your going to include dead people, how can you not include Revan? I mean Nihilus is probably one of the most epic sith lords ever...but still...No Revan?
