I. Overview

Phoenix Rising is a partial conversion for Star Wars: Empire at War:
Forces of Corruption. Our goal is to provide a unique strategic
experience within the Galaxy. To that end, we have developed an
asynchronous tech tree. Not only will you be tested tactically, you
will also be pressed to keep up in the technological race that
characterizes war.

Thank you for downloading us and trying us out. If you spot any bugs or
imbalances, or just want to hang out with fellow players, drop by the
official forums, which can be reached through the website at
www.eawpr.net.

3. Right-click the Phoenix Rising shortcut and go to Properties.

IV. Known Issues

* Pirate starbase occasionally is not destroyed after a successful
raid on the planet (especially when both the raid force and the
pirates are wiped out in auto-resolve and you conquer the planet
with a stealth unit), which can cause an exception and crash.
* AI likes to build tons of Hutt Palaces, despite the perception
equation for it (should only build one per planet max).
* AI non-combat heroes rarely attach to their LUA-assigned
escorts.
* Non-land heroes show up as their transports if they participate
in a land battle with no buildings to attach to.
* Engine particles disappear when Power To Engines unit ability is
activated.
* Ion hull impact particle always spawns at (0, 0, 0) instead of
on the hull.
* Lambda-class T-4 Shuttle and Sentinel-class Landing Craft have
mis-rigged firing bones and their weapons are temporarily set to
turreted to get them to fire forward.
* Action IV Transport, Alpha-3 Nimbus-class V-wing, Barloz-class
Medium Freighter, TIE Avenger, and Z-95 Headhunter all lack
landing animations.
* New models lack death clones.
* Upgrades do not acknowledge
tag on starbases (just
research facilities).
* EF76 Nebulon-B Escort Frigate does not acknowledge missile
target bones for firing missiles (only lasers).
