Dear fellow Star Wars fans,

As some of you may already know, our Star Wars: BattleCry game is doing extremely well and even made it to rank 1:
Moddb.com

Despite this, we still need more:

  • ANIMATORS AND CODERS! (VERY IMPORTANT!)
  • SKILLED ENVIRONMENTAL ARTISTS (ALSO VERY IMPORTANT!) - we want to have Hoth and a few other big maps completed by the end of next year so we need as much help as we can get!
  • Texture artists,
  • 2D artists - menu screens, HUDs, etc.

WE CURRENTLY HAVE ENOUGH 3D MODELLERS AND MUSICIANS. WE WILL LET YOU KNOW IF AND WHEN WE NEED MORE!

Requirements:

Coders: C++ and/or Lua. Exception if for example they have used C# a lot with Unity or used UnrealScript a lot).

Animators: Animating humanoids, mostly. Software: Max or Maya (for exporting))

Modellers: High/low poly modelling/sculpting, baking maps, UVing. Software: Max / Maya / Blender for exporting, package of choice for creating.

2D (HUD/menu building): Knowledge of Action Script 2 and Flash (would be good to know some Lua/C++, too).

2D other: Photoshop/Gimp.

Mappers: Used Sandbox editor before (or at least something similar, like the UDK editor).

May the force be with you... :-)

I usually love all things star wars and its a smart move on your part to call it a 'mod' as I've heard that Lucas-arts is particularly ferocious about their IPs and a 'game' would have most likely been shut down but I see what you're doing here ;) 

I wish you the best of luck and you'd better not disappoint!

This post is better written than your first, it has all the information needed, only thing missing is some media and more detail on the positions, but overall its a better post, so i wish you luck finding who you need.

Thanks, TKAzA, I've added some more detail to the positions.

Hey, I'd like to apply for texture/3D artist and possibly programmer. :) I've got some years of 'hobby-experience' with 3D art (mostly characters). I can get you some pictures later if you want.
I don't know Lua and only a bit of C++ but Lua seems to be quite similar in its approach to python (which I can use very well) so learning that shouldn't be a problem. In terms of C++... well, I can do basic stuff. I poked around a bit in the C++ source which comes with the SDK. I suppose I at least can do things like setting up weapons, maybe writing funcitonality for usable/interactive items/objects in the world etc...
So, summary:
Primary job: 3D artist(characters), Texture artist.
Secondary job: Programmer
One problem I have is that there is no exporter for XSI/Softimage. I think there's a FBX converter for CE but I dunno how much functionality is still missing from that.

..I got chills looking at this. I am tracking and really hope you succeed. This looks like assets from the leaked Free Radical Battlefront 3 game.

Oct 21 2012, 2:00pm Anchor

Sent you some pictures. I can't really send you pictures of code I produced so only character models.

I don't care if you're a mod! Take my money! *throws wallet at the screen*

Honestly though, I'm really excited and hoping you guys persevere throughout the long haul!

Thanks for the kind words Arcones and Reqieumthefallen.

Anyone else interested in joining?

Oct 26 2012, 2:34pm Anchor

I guess i'll go ahead and join you people in doing your project. I can do some 3d modeling and do programming in c++ (which I think Cryengine uses).
To look at my 3d modeling portfolio:

I don't if you already have a dedicated weapons developer, but I guess props modeling would also be fine for me.

We need a weapons specialist, so you are very welcome in our mod.

Your models are nice. :-)

I'm sure you already know, but the level of detail needs to be stepped up a bit for this game.

Oct 27 2012, 4:55pm Anchor

I would like to join as a texture artist to get my skills up! I can unwrap and model also.

Awesome! I've been looking for a texture editor!

Here are a few samlples of my work. Not sure if you guys are still looking for more 3D artists. I'm currently in the process of acquiring a degree in game design and would like to have something to practice the things I am learning on. Been a longtime SW fan and it would be cool to help out where I can.

Dude with skills like that I don't think I can refuse you, but atm I think I' going to have to stop accepting 3D modellers as we've got plenty already.

I'll talk to the others about you, but from what I've seen I can almost guarantee you'll be in!

Oct 28 2012, 1:51pm Anchor

I can understand that. I saw quite a few people saying they wanted to help with 3D modeling but figured I'd at least put my name out there. Most of those models were from a year or so ago and I know you liked those but here's one of my more recent models for a more accurate representation of my current abilities.

As long as you can keep them coordinated, I imagine you could have a large number of them. Considering you're pretty much remaking Battlefront 3 from the ground up... I'd say the more the better.

Oct 29 2012, 12:49am Anchor

Should the need arise go ahead and shoot me a message. Whether or not I do get in I wish you guys the best. There's a lot of talent in the team and I'll be tracking it for sure.

I would love to join, but i think i would not be experienced enough i guess, but it would be an amazing experience and a great way to learn CryEngine3. I am one of Ande's friends, i use softimage XSI too but i could learn 3ds max and Zbrush, i am owner of SWBF CUSTOM (which became the home of The411Remnant group too), i can do 3d models, textures would love to learn environment creation in cryengine (i want to became environment artist), i have xfire and steam: lephenix51, and here are my old models:  S1043.photobucket.com
Thanks in advance.

A couple of your pistols are very nice. Especially this one:

We currently have a weapons modeller and you could help him out... I'll talk to some other members about what you can do. 

Oct 29 2012, 10:25am Anchor

Thanks you, i would love to help with props, vehicles  environments and weapons. I just started blocking out a gonkd/power droid model: S1043.photobucket.com

Cool, if you could make that a high poly model, that would be great.
