And so it begins.

Awsome! But I hope it's not too only and limited to star war race, but I would like taken empire and fight all other non-star war alien as well even star trek or something, more fun factor for me.

As one sometimes does.

I am wondering about playing the rebellion, I'm guessing they are like the pirates with their hidden bases and whatnot ?

They are just added in the game.

Ill take a look to the hidden base option I'm still figuring out the concept of design templates for ships and star bases.

Those that love the EU will continue to love it. Thrawn stays IMO.

Problem is the ship-sets I have to take a look into it.

Wow, you've even included Admiral Ozzel.

Give him low stats because he's as clumsy as he is stupid for coming out of light speed too close to the system.

You're in command now... *Admiral* Piett!

some characters have indeed bad stats.
Example : The Imperial diplomats are very xenophobic and General Veers is maybe a good attacker but bad in defence.

It is your vision so you can do as you wish, but I would think Veers would be a very competent General. You do not survive long on Vader's flagship being an idiot. Your stats on Admiral Ozzel show that...
I wonder if we can prevail on Elliot to have a dismissal via Force Choke.

I like the photos that you have chosen; very cool; let me know if I can help, and anything I have you are welcome to. :)

Ill have to add government to make something fitting for the current 3 faction.


The confederation will be a mix of troop units to reflect what they are on the field.
I still have some work to remove the white pixels and redo the special troops en give them proper regiment names.

If I might make a suggestion? You appear to have named the races representing the various factions along the lines of Empire, Rebellion, Confederacy, et cetera. It might look better if you were to use the adjectival form of these nouns, so that instead of leading the "Empires," you would be leading the "Imperials;" instead of leading the "Rebellions," you'd be leading the "Rebels;" instead of leading the "Confederacys," you'd be leading the "Confederates." It might look a bit better for the game start screen, and I doubt it would confuse people.

(Thrawn) {i}s no longer cannon ?

My understanding of Star Wars canon is that the stuff that's in the licensed works is canonical unless it contradicts the stuff in some more canonical work, and anything which contradicts something in the movies is not canon. Since Thrawn appears in works set in the late-Old Republic and throughout the Galactic Empire period, I would say that it isn't so much that Thrawn himself is not canonical as that the works which speak to his actions post-Battle of Endor are non-canonical. But if someone can point to something reasonably official that says that Thrawn himself is not a canonical character, then I can't really contradict that.

I would also say that since we don't know exactly what the new Disney movies are going to contain, we cannot necessarily assume that their existence takes Thrawn out of the canon (more to the point, while the new movies may take some portions of Thrawn's actions out of the canon, they do not necessarily take the entire character out of the canon), and regardless you're free to chose any Star Wars stuff regardless of its canonical status.
