Recommended Posts

Well after my computer completely reformated my users Partition taking Rebellion with it and a TC that ADarkJedi grew quite familiar with, my updates, I've begun work on a new TC and stories that occur as I run it through its first practice game will be placed here. First as After action reports and then in story form.

 

If you have no Idea who the Rapora are read the ST vs SW Fanfic topic in the General Discussion forum.

 

Let the true war of the Star Wars universe begin.

Start Date 9 years after endor...

Lesson 1 to the AI, never ever, try to blockade a planet with Mara Jade and Luke Skywalker on it...

 

Day 84:

 

An Imperial task force destroys a fleet of New Republic ships in orbit above Yavin. Considring its Narra in overal Republic command, its not surprising.

 

So the Imperials Blockade Luke Skywalker's Academy on Yavin IV and Mara Jade started there so...

 

Total Imperial Losses

 

3 Victory II Star Destroyers

2 Imperial II Star Destroyers

1 Carrack Cruiser

12 Regiments of troops and loads of TIEs,

 

Never Blockade the Jedi Academy, you will regret it. Sabotage :P

Well the Mod is a work in Progress right now...But this is what I've done thus far.

 

Start Date: 9-10 years after Endor...

 

Character changes:

 

Leia has been replaced with Mara Jade

 

Mon Mothma has been replaced with Leia Solo.

 

Emperor Palpatine is now replaced with Dark Lord Sidious as a reincarnation.

 

Darth Vader has been replaced by Lord Draken, a Rapora operative thats worked with Sidious for over fifty years and leads the Raporan fleet.

 

Jacen, Anakin, and Jaina Solo are recruitable on the rebel side, but their abilities are poor to reflect their lack of experience.

 

Event Changes:

 

Luke goes to Dagobah is now the Hand of Thrawn incident, Luke and Mara are married and Luke tries to come to grips with how he's dabbled in the Dark Side.

 

Imperial Fighters:

Tie Interceptor

Tie Scimitar

Tie Advanced Mk 2

Raporan Fighter

 

Rebel Fighters:

X-wing

E-wing

A-wing mk 2

Sekotan Fighter

 

There are more but its a work in progress... I also modded the setting on starships for realism again...

 

The newest topic in RDB II forum is about this mod...

Imperial folly over Yavin.

 

Yavin is attracting a lot of attention, but of course it is... Yavin's got Luke, Mara, Han, Jacen, Jaina, and now even Anakin on the world. Fortunately for the New Republic new ships have been streaming off the production lines. I've station a massive fleet...well not so massive, force over Yavin and intelligence warns me of an Imperial attack.

 

Narra got demoted to commander, and is station on Task Force Solo Star over Yavin. Admiral Tallon is in overal command.

 

The New Republic Task Force Solo Star around day 120

 

2 Imperial II Star Destroyers (Solo Star is one of them)

3 Nebulon B Frigates

6 Corellian Corvettes

2 Assault Frigates

Fully loaded with starfighters 1/2 X-wings 1/2 E-wings

 

The Imperial Attack Force:

 

1 Imperial Star Destroyer

3 Victory Star Destroyers

4 Modern Action Transports

1 Carrack Cruiser

2 Nebulon B Frigates

All loaded with Tie Interceptors with shields

 

The fight wasn't over quickly but came out to be a definite New Republic victory...though the Empire was wise enough to withdraw before things became really ugly.

 

Total Imperial Losses:

2 Nebulon B Frigates destroyed by E-wings

All Imperial starfighters destroyed.

1 Carrack Cruiser disabled and scuttled by the empire in the withdraw.

 

Total Rebel Losses:

Only three starfighter squadrons survived...All E-wings

1 Impstar lightly damaged.

1 Corvette lightly damaged.

 

The Sumitra sector has since been secured except for the occasional hit and run. Surprising the AI has been using Carracks and Nebulon Bs in tandem for those attacks.

 

On another note its day 375 and the AI has finished construction of a Death Star over Vagran.

I cut the cost for a Death Star to 250/200. I also made it so all sectors are high value and colonized... It makes the game start with a bang :P

 

An Imperial attempt to take my capital has been thwarted. A small fleet of imperials (1 VSD and transports. ) Got stomped by the New Republic home defense fleet (6 MC80s 2 Home Ones and support ships). Take that...

 

The Hand of Thrawn event just occured...Luke's off meditating in some cave :roll:

 

But I've still got Jade, get em tiger...

I find the Irony in the lastest news fromt he front quite humorous...

 

The Empire built a Death Star... and with a fleet fo four Star Destroyers and a Carrack blockade the Ando system.

 

I send Task Force Solo Star to destroy them...

 

The Fleet jumps in and launches its attack destroying the death star and a Victory star destroyer...

 

I lose the Imperial II Star Destroyer Rejuvenator.

 

Whats funny about this? I'd captured Bevel Lemkis and he was on the Rejuvenator. The Death Star destroyed the Rejuvenator with its first shot, killing Bevel. He just got killed by his own superweapon!!!

 

In other news, its day 470 or so and the Empire has deployed over 10 Super Star Destroyers... Its getting thick out there.

Another update, its day 770 and the Empire has developed Sovereign class star destroyers. They've built six of them.

 

Current Estimates for Imperial fleet strength:

 

40-60 VSDs

12 SSDs

30-40 ISDs

6 Sovereign Star Destroyers

30 Nebulon B Frigates

 

I think you get the picture.

UPDATE:

 

Okay so the Empire has an enormous amount of heavy and even superheavy starships. But the New Republic / GFFA forces have about half that number of forces, but three times the worlds. They have control of the Core and soon the New Republic will launch an attempt to take the world of Coruscant, soon.

 

Sad news for the Solos. In a mission to Carida, Jacen Solo was killed by the Rapora Lord Draken... :cry: Well, at least Jaina escaped the world. Currently Luke and Mara just single handedly liberated Obroa Skai from imperial occupation, as a team they're nearly unbeatable. :twisted: Thrawn is on the Alliance side :roll: and has taken command of a force of Imperial II star destroyers that are ripping apart imperial worlds throughout the outer rim. The tide seems to have turned toward the side of the Alliance.

 

Unfortunately the Empire has developed a new type of fighter, the Raporan interceptor and have used it to great effect against alliance starfighters. Fortuantely for the alliance the expense of building the Raporan fighter has made it impracticable for large scale depolyment. I'd estimate the empire has only deployed fifty of those craft.

 

There haven't been many fleet to fleet battles of note. An imperial blockade of Corsin is most likely to be the next setting for a major battle, once I've moved enough forces into the region to destroy a sovereign class super star destroyed.

I'm looking forward to your release of this. From your updates the games sounds like it is much more difficult than before. I must admit I'm concerned about Thrawn's defection though...

History is on the move, Captain. Those who cannot keep up with it will be left behind, to watch from a distance. And those who stand in our way will not watch at all.

I keep hearing about that TC, but I've been gone for so long it's completely new to me. That's the one that makes the AI more difficult right? I'll have to take a look. I've recently gotten the urge to play SWR but unless I can find some ship models I like, it may be a short-lived revival.

:arrow: I know that feeling ...well try the TC and if it will not be a plesent exploratory surprise to you...you can call me a monkey on the forums :wink:

 

 

:arrow: I recomand you to play Imperials on medium hard ....to bad that I can upload the 2.5 since the Imperial AI is better there .....

 

 

:arrow: Also put all probes and y-wings probes to 200 espyonage and 200 combat .....belive me it is essencial for an agressive AI .....he needs to see before and attack ...and probes don't see characters so ...works for me.

 

:arrow: Also if you play the alliance lower the cost of the TIE to 1 cost 2 maint .... the Imperialn AI is set to fully attack only after he has some TIE cover on some important planets :)

 

 

:arrow: Let me know if I got your attention

  • 1 month later...

Hmm... Witht he power vested in me I now command this thread, return from the dead. :lol::lol::lol:

 

Okay to business, I've begun completely rehashing the mod to match the new plot line I've developed for the Rapora Wars. Unfortunately it means I'm going to spend allot of time working on it.

 

All Imperial units will be hereby removed and replaced with Vagaari, Rapora, and other evil forces.

 

I'll need to rework allot of the worlds to accomadate the post NJO setting...

 

Oh boy lots of work ahead. :wink: This may take several months :cry:

Yes well...

 

I suddenly realized today that Yuuzhan Vong Hunter droids look almost Identical to the Terminator robots.

 

Now how to make an image of the Vagaari and Rapora...hmmm
