** Super Star Destroyers (or Star Dreadnoughts) are ludicrously powerful, having several dozen turbolaser platforms capable of terrifying barrages of fire, and can easily take on large fleets all by itself... unless the fleet is able to position themselves behind it, due to all of its weapons being placed on the front half. It requires a support fleet to protect its flank to last beyond even one such battle.

*** ''Vader's New Order'' diverges after the Destruction of Alderaan, and sees Darth Vader and his apprentice, Darth Acris (named Darth Caezar, after the author, in the released version), successfully overthrow Palpatine, and Vader takes a much more active role in the day-to-day operations of the Empire. As a result of these changes to the timeline, Obi-Wan is still alive, since Vader wasn't on the Death Star when Leia was rescued. The Death Star is still destroyed, though. Meanwhile, the Zann Consortium, as in ''Return of the Clones'', takes possession of Separatist assets. Future versions will introduce additional Imperal factions who defied Vader, including the Grand Imperium (led by Dark Jedi Jerec, and joined by Zsinj and Ardus Kaine), the Black Sun (led by Prince Xizor and joined by Darth Maul), the Hutt Cartel, and the Mandelorians will be added in future versions. The current version also includes several NPC factions (namely Naboo and Corellia) meant to represent belligerent isolationist governments.

** There also exist several [[Main/AlternateUniverse AU]] mods:
*** ''Return of the Clones'' sees parts of the Republic survive the transition to the New Order. Using Kamino as their capitol, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Mon Mothma create a government-in-exile and use a clone army to fight the Empire. Meanwhile, the Rebel Alliance still forms on its own, and the Zann Consortium is made up of CIS droids.
