There are no custom galactic conquests.  I'm not sure if anyone has done any custom campaigns either.

I'm in the process of making it easier for people to access custom galactic conquests, but it is a little way off.  Custom campaigns are easier but still not well explored.

It is possible to create custom campaigns -- https://www.twitch.tv/videos/664922179

But it is true that it requires a lot of investigation with shell.lvl and of course, thinking of what you want to create.

As sorry as I am, I stopped modding about 4 years and that's not precisely one of my priorities (taking into account I dedicate most of my time to SWBF & Player engagement). I just wanted to say that it's possible and it was part of a bigger project called Zero Battlefront if I'm not wrong.

For SWBF2 there is this mod that has a custom campaign:
http://gametoast.com/viewtopic.php?f=74&t=23684

The download for that includes a installer exe.
In this mod I'm pretty sure the modder distributed his own shell.lvl file to the 'data/_LVL_PC/' folder; overwriting the one the game ships with.

I frown on that method, but do not currently have a better method to share.

sounds good my method replaces the cw and gcw campaing missions with my own but the big downside is that it takes up the addon mission limit and that i cant do a new custom campaign without replacing one of the stock. and as well as that i dont think custom planet icons can be done trough the addon system. the addon system is very limited so lets hope phantoms userpatch when it comes helps us loosen some of these restrictions.
