Bob, I know you are busy preparing the next phoenix rising mod for EAW 2, but I need some help here as one of your OG fans. I'm getting CTD on the galactic map GFFA campaign around week 65 playing as empire. Please help, I would like to complete restoring peace and order throughout the galaxy.

Love the mod, prolly my favorite one. Couple of notes, speeder bikes are WAY OP, and seem to take too much damage and pretty much can't be hit and unit size is too large. Arrow 23 could use a slight armor buff. HMP flight patterns a clunky. Love the mod hope it continues to be expanded on

Question, I notice when I play GC, the enemy AI rarely creates heroes to fight against. I usually play as the Rebels and I never see the enemy create Vader or the Emperor or anyone else besides Mara, Boba Fett and a few other named clone troopers Is there a way to change it where the enemy AI creates more heroes to fight or have the enemy heroes simply unlocked from the beginning?

Having a weird error whenever I try to run Phoenix. I have the STEAMMOD=1235783994 correctly placed and sub but when i try to launch i get the following error. Anyone else having this issue or know how to resolve. This only happens with this mod, I can run AOTR, Thrawn's revenge, Remake 4.0 etc.

Failed to remove application from collection - error code 0x80070005

I've already re-verified my main game and unfollowed re-followed the mod.

Does anyone know how to add ship names to the mod?
The tutorials I found on the internet are either for vanilla or AOR, but they don't work with the file structure from PR 2.0

Great mod with a very unique approach! Lag is there, but not too bad on my PC. I run a rig that is 'optimised' for older games with the 7700k.

The only thing I absolutely hate in this mod is all the shuttles and transports that spawn in space battles.
I wish there was a submod for that.
Other than that I love this mod!
