The premise is essentially this: create new equipment disks, that allow you to re-skin infantry units, ex: Rebel Soldier to Rebel Commando, Storm Trooper to Shore Trooper, and possibly even spaceship units.
Here are a few ideas on units that would turn into which droid. Every droid would have either a Empire or Rebel symbol on their chest, depending on the side they are being produced for.
Storm Trooper/Rebel Soldier: Regular B1 Battle droid in regular colors, fire from regular guns. (could also say roger roger when being trained and “uh oh” when being killed)
Wookie/Dark Trooper: B2 Super Battle Droid in regular colors, shoots from wrist, similar to Dark Trooper
Rebel Pathfinder/Scout Trooper: Commando droids in regular colors. (seen from The Clone Wars TV show)
Jetpack Rebel/Trooper: Space colored B1 Battle droids with jetpack.
X-Wing/Tie Fighter: Vulture Droid reskin
Y-Wing/Tie Bomber: Hyena Bomber reskin
As they are re-skins, and they do not provide stat bonuses, they should be made immediately available to anyone that wishes to use them, such as in a loot crate everyone gets with this update.
This can also work with Star Wars lore, as even in Disney Canon, CIS equipment and droids are still in use by Rebels or Empire. Ex: AAT-1 hover tank, Umbaran tank, and especially the Droideka oppressor and sentinel variants being prime examples.
Please let me know what you think!
