Mission Creation Center

Death Star construction -- from 'Revenge of the Sith'

Members of the Emperor's Hammer Strike Fleet can (and are encouraged to!) actually design their own custom missions and battles to be played on some of the most famous and successful Star Wars based game platforms by LucasArts®. Most frequently played are the immortal TIE Fighter, X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter, X-Wing Alliance, the Jedi Academy series, Star Wars Galaxies, and Star Wars: The Old Republic.

Many of those game platforms allow users to create their own custom missions, and that's the key behind all that Emperor's Hammer custom material you can find on our Battle Center. The Imperial University has a special course on general procedures for proper mission creation, Mission Creation and Beta Testing Standards, and specific tutorials for all our used flying platforms, not to mention detailed instructions on how to get the best performance from some of the best mission design free software available.

All you need to do is to come up with a storyline somehow involving the Emperor's Hammer (even if it's very loosely), familiarize yourself with the mission editor of your choice, and start building and testing (ad infinitum).

Once you consider your new mission or battle finished and ready, you can send it to the Tactical Office, where it will be reviewed, and fixed as necessary, by EH Tactical Officer's staff before being officially released into our Mission Compendium. When that happens, you'll be awarded a Medal of Tactics for your invaluable service to the Fleet! Morevover, if you're not creating the battle yourself but a storyline you submit for it to be used on the creation of a new one is judged by the Tactical Officer himself as being worthy of it, you may be awarded a Commendation of Service!

On top of all that, and much more importantly, you'll have proven yourself as beffiting an Imperial Officer loyal to the Emperor's Hammer and served YOUR Empire!
