I hope the major heroes ARE permadeath, as it adds to the overall realism of the mod (in life, you don't get to respawn after you die).
Saw this discussion and felt I should share my opinions here. Disney hasn't disappointed in a while; Abrams made a good first Star Trek movie, but the second one wasn't that great IMO. That being said, I have no doubt that the new Star Wars film will be a good movie that will make a lot of money.
However, to me it will NOT be Star Wars. It will not be the Star Wars I and so many others here come to know and love. It will not be the world where everything was gray; where the war between the Empire and the New Republic showed us heroes and villains on both sides; where neither side was innocent. The new generation of Star Wars fans will not know or care about what came before. Gone will be Thrawn, Revan, and the Vong; replaced with Ashoka, Kannan, and the Inquisitor. That is what is truly saddening.
Let's face it: we are the final bastion of the EU. Interest in "Legends" will slowly dwindle until Disney can cease printing, and then the only Star Wars will be Disney's Star Wars.
Oops. Missed that. :P
Since it is a mobile trade port it should have a passive galactic credit boosting ability or something like that.
Ooh, new question: will the Crimson Command be present in the mod?? After Teradoc was killed they were transferred to service in the IR, and only a few were destroyed at the Battle of Yavin IV, so they could still be around (not to mention that they are one of the coolest Imperial ships).
It will blow my mind?? Thought bomb. The only thing that could literally explode someone's head
Nailed it lol
"Rejoice, for very bad things are about to happen…"
The might of the Imperial Navy has arrived; fear its power.
A question, as I am modding illiterate:
The little white tag on the ship third panel pic says "SOASE_Mesh14." What does his refer to?
I am sure we will all be pleasantly surprised…
If Star Destroyers are called floating triangles and Mon Calamari designs are called space whales, then this shall be the Intergalactic Alligator.
Awesome work as always.
Many people (myself included) thought so too. That's why they have been removed.
A question about the heroes: will they be the respawn when killed type or the permadeath type of hero. I am hoping it will be the latter, because it makes hero use a high-risk high-reward gamble.
He will be pleasantly surprised...;)
It would appear the Website is down again, unless you are known as the Alderaanian Mining Company now (because that's where your link takes me).
Just from an unofficial standpoint, I think that it should be like the Nebula-Tector relationship in ICW. one-on-one, the Tector can defeat the Nebula, but the fighters that the Nebula has (combined with the Tector's lack of fighters) means the Tector will lose in most combat situations without the proper support. The same with the Alliegance (stronger, but very vulnerable to small ships) and the Dodonna (weaker, but has a fighter/bomber/corvette compliment).
I like it, it looks like a tiny Vongformed Lucrehulk.
That...is disgusting. But cool, I must admit.
Yeah I heard about that. Hope strobe changes his mind about the scaling before release.
No, I think that title still belongs to the Bulwark Mk III.
Any chance the website will be back up soon?
I know Thrawn was dead. However, it would not suprise me if many of Thrawn's ideals were added to the Ascendancy when they re-absorbed the EotH, as he was so influential. Also, the Empire of the Hand was not a sub-faction of the Chiss Ascendancy, but rather its own separate government that was absorbed into the Ascendancy slowly after Thrawn's death (even then it survived, albeit without the rest of the galaxy knowing).
Of course, if the conspiracy theories were true and the Chaf'orm'bintrano of 22 ABY onwards was really a clone of Thrawn, then he would have been most influential regarding military policies. But that matter is only one of speculation.
So is this an original design? I love the way this looks. A question though (I'm not the most versed when it comes to this era): what role exactly did the Mandalorians play in the Hyperspace War?
The inherent problem with having too many factions is that the Freeze hits sooner. You can have all the factions you want but if you can only play for 100 in-game days it gets boring really fast. In TR, the GC with the most factions has four playable (NR, IR, PA, EotH) and three minor unplayable (Hapans, Yevetha, Warlords). In order to prevent the freeze in some of the GCs, the Galactic AI of some of the factions must be turned off.
I was wondering, because if the EotH is being combined with the Chiss Ascendancy, then they shouldn't have superships, as Thrawn was ideologically opposed to them.
The Phalanx assault frigate, huh? Any relation to TR's Phalanx? Also, a question: are the Empire of the Hand and the Chiss going to be a single subfaction, or are they separate?
Is your website down again? I get taken to the Star Wars Rebellion website when I go to your website.
No news for a while...just wondering what's been going on.
Probably school/life getting in the way, I would imagine, it has a nasty habit of doing that. Just as long as you don't go on "business leave" and disappear from the face of the earth (without letting the rest of your team continue making the mod), I'm happy.
Oops, accidentally gave this negative karma. Sorry, Burntstrobe.
So upon ramming will both ships take damage? I would assume so (with he target taking more of course).
Hello Blackout. Good to see you here. I think multiplayer focus would be great for any mod, however I think it might be better once the mod nears completion (or at least until 1.2 comes out) as it's more of a finishing touch than actual gameplay features. TR is currently adding more MP GC's as they near completion.
