About This File

SWR - Extra Units - Mod  V1.05

This mini-mod is meant to serve as a test-bed for extra units added to standard SWR

I did put a healthy dose of care on keeping quality on the visuals of the new units,
On the other hand, some of the new units are not lore-friendly

The downloadable zip contains 16 files:  
05 DLL files  
03 GData (.DAT) files 
08 EData files.

In order to install just copy the files on a clean SWR installation folder

The mod adds the following units
02 Extra Troops for Empire ( Royal guards and Scout Troopers )
03 Extra Troops for Alliance (Non canon)
02 Extra spec forces:  Both for Alliance (Non canon)
01 Extra ship for Alliance (#)

(#) A variant of the standard Mon Calamari Cruiser equipped with gravity projector. ( It has been named MC-88 )
This choice gives the new ship a distinctive appearance against the original Mon Calamari cruiser (despite of using the same model) 
thanks to the gravity projector visual effect on tactical.

In order to ease testing, no research is required to recruit the extra troops. 
No change was made on vanilla troops stats

Known Limitations

-Troop Finder & Spec Forces Finder are both limited to vanilla units, as those are hard-coded in rebexe
-Tactical Pictures that feature units as cargo/passengers in capital ships (during tactical battles) are included in TACTICAL.DLL but disabled
( since their match against the unit's ID is hard-coded in rebexe )

The following actions are optional ( not required to run the mod )

If user wish to enable the 32x32  "cargo" pics for new units in tactical battles, hex edit on rebexe is required:
- At offset 0x195C15  ( rebexe 1.02 )  or
- At offset 0x197585  ( rebexe 1.01)
See picture for more details

The Troop Finder and Spec Forces finder can also be adjusted in rebexe. in order to handle the new units user can hex edit rebexe:
- At offset 0x63E10  for Spec Forces Finder  ( rebexe 1.02 )
- At offset 0x6C1D0  for Troop Finder  ( rebexe 1.02 )
See picture for more details

Using Resource Hacker (tool) to save a copy of pictures 10538, 10539, 10540 and 10541, from STRATEGY.DLL, allows to edit and change the troop Icons featured in the finders.
