That is certainly something to try for the future. If we decide to attempt this, we would certainly have to make it work well and not look like separate levels cobbled together. This will also depend on the dev teams ability to design a map with room for dogfighting while keeping it safe for infantry below to have their battle too. A common complaint on Battlefront 2 on Hoth were about the snowspeeders strafing infantry. Then there is the issue of space not being breathable for troops and so on. There would be a LOT of work involved. So, while not out of the question, it would take some time to get right if we did attempt this. This is absolutely a task we want to look at in the future! First comes first, though. Hoth just so happens to be first!
Funny you mention that. . .I actually love Math and HATE (I repeat with great passion. . .HATE!) Grammar so, ideally, I would not pursue such a course of action. Ironically, my job as a PR requires the utmost perfection in Grammar so. . .I jus got tuh roll wif it!
Yes, as Mandosis has said, the focus for the team is currently on the vicious war between the Rebels and the Imperials. This is our starting point and we are building from here. Once the era has been expanded upon, we can set our sights to other well loved time periods Star Wars has to offer. As always, I'll be seeing YOU!! in my next post. . .BABAI!!
You have, honestly and sincerely, our greatest appreciation for your diligence in both perseverance and strength. It honors us to know that one has fought, bled, and risen to glory. Birthed with triumph, we salute you as the victorious hero you have become. We dearly hoped that the work which has been completed would be met with joyous outcries and admiration, and we have never been so proud to hear we have, indeed, achieved this goal. We can only ponder what shall come in the future. The future where you are no longer restricted. A land where you may wander and find true adventure. (And maybe you will actually get to finish the game!) As always, I'll see YOU!! in my next post. . .BABAI!!
I liked all the phases, though if I had to choose a favorite. . .hmm. . .probably the Dark Troopers from the Galactic Empire! (Those things would wreak havoc on game balance. . .at least phase 2 or 3)
I know, I know, just try to be patient! The devs will get to this eventually!
If you mean will we include Easter Eggs, well, that is to be left to the devs. . .*glances with a suspicious look at the team*
If not. . .I am afraid I do not understand the question enough to answer it.
Yeah, we cannot make any profit of any kind or we can be sued for copyright infringement, so advertising and sales from Steam would get us in trouble. In general, as a rule of thumb, it won't find its way anywhere where you buy things. That is also why we can only accept donations to keep servers up and furthermore cannot use Kickstart. Not one penny goes in our pockets. The thought is nice though! It's always pleasant to hear the great support from you all!
But it certainly is playable! :P
That or the Rakghoul Plague will strike the galaxy all at once.
Seriously, though, that is a limitation we may have to work with. It all depends on what servers we have and what they can handle.
Hmm, that would be possible, though this is up to the dev team to decide. If they have time and want to get it done, great! If, however, they would rather get the alpha out ASAP, then something like that can wait. Even if we do not have a tutorial, controls should be familiar to computer gamers and we could most certainly include a list of the default key bindings for the controls.
Neither can I! :D
Wulf has said he intends to finish this mod, but is short on time. Give him some breathing room and when he has a chance, he will finish this mod up!
The release date is TBD. . . The devs are still working on the mod and it will not be released for a little while.
The dev team can do this is they choose to do so and in the same manner, they have the right to never release so much as one version. Much as we want to play it, Wulf has stated that work is not yet being filled out on a daily basis, as his focus is the ME mod, and knowing his team, he wouldn't want to release anything that isn't in a completed state, so, he probably will not do so, but that is merely my analysis. As Always, I'll be seeing YOU!! in my next post. . BABAI!!
As do I so maybe you can help finish it and release it sooner :P
". . .certainly be looked (AT) once the game. . ."
I'm so fired! D:
*checks to make sure* WOOOOOOOOOOOO!!
Thank you so much everybody for making this happen!
Hello from the United States! I am overjoyed to hear yet another person excited for this game. You know, it's people like you that make us want to finish this game. We all have the same vision, a true sequel to Battlefront 2. I can only anticipate the day I get to play it with all these great people! As always, I'll be seeing YOU!! in my next post. . .BABAI!!
(Постскриптум Ваш английский лучше, чем мой русский! (Google Translate. . .I hope I got that right. . .)
It's an honor to hear we have fans from all over the galaxy! Also, thank you for spreading around our name!The more people that know about Battlecry, the better. As for translations, I do not know for sure the plans on this, though I believe it will most certainly be looked once the game is more completed and the alpha is released. Someone on the dev team could clarify this better than I. We have actually launched our website already, check it out here! Swbattlecry.com
Thank you for taking the time to advertise for us, every post counts! As always, I'll be seeing YOU!! in my next post. . .BABAI!!
I'm not sure if heroes would let you get that close, something about mystical powers and all, but melee attacks are certainly a possibility. Keep in mind, however, that this is not simply a twitch, fast paced shooter like the famous COD or Battlefield series. If melee attacks are implemented, it would need a careful balance. Too strong and it becomes a makeshift shotgun (because no one would exploit video game mechanics right?), too weak and no one uses it. This really depends on the weapon balance and how willing the devs are to work it in. It has not been in previous battlefront titles, mods aside, so all I can really give this is maybe. I can't yet say for sure what will be and what will not. Thanks again for a good idea! As always, I'll be seeing YOU!! in my next post. . .BABAI!!
An interesting idea, though sadly, such ideas will have to wait until other units are figured out. Whenever it is we work on heroes, details such as the effects, range, and other mechanics would have to be figured out first. Balance is certainly the name of the game, despite it really being Battlecry, so making sure everything has its place beside the rest, rather than high above, is a high priority. As always, I'll be seeing YOU!! in my next post. . .BABAI!!
Ah, Wulf! It does my heart good to know my long hours (mainly consisting of a few short minutes) have been rewarded with a reply! Good to finally have a firm status to keep people informed. I can't imagine the number of messages you received about this. Also, don't you dare apologize! You have nothing to apologize for, you are doing it out of the kindness of your heart to make the mod in the first place so much as we fans pester and demand, it was your grace that we had something to wait for and enjoy in the first place. I am confident that with the team you stand with, when this mod finally receives attention, it will be a stalwart mod taking its place as one of the best. Until then, I, among the others, will patiently wait for one of my most anticipated mods yet! As always, I'll be seeing YOU!! in my next post. . .BABAI!!
Can we add lightsabers? Probably if we get that far. Can we add signature characters like Vader and Luke? Most likely not due to copyrights.
A little early to say what units will be or how many there are. Who knows? We may make a few classes and be done or find some new units added in along the way. Point is we just can't say for sure just yet. You can expect, however, to find the troops reminiscent of Battlefront 2. Much inspiration is being drawn from other battlefront games, so the usual class system will probably fit in somehow.
It does look a little stiff, but that's perfectly fine. Fine tuning details to achieve smooth movement and transitions will arrive in time. No doubt there is always room to improve, but having well coded animations that make it look true to the movies is fantastic progress. Imagine how it all will look once it is well polished and ready for release! On the matter of the probe droid, if I understand correctly, it will most likely be equipment used by infantry similar to how it is used in Battlefront 1 & 2. The team certainly drives towards making a worthy title for the battlefront series, so hearing yet another individual is excited by their tireless work is awesome! Thanks for the support and input! As always, I'll be seeing YOU!! in my next post. . .BABAI!!
Sadly, not a word from the devs has been uttered. We shall simply have to continue waiting.
Thank you Shark, i would have never known that!
I'm afraid that even google cannot reveal to me what PBR is. What exactly is PBR?
Of course we will! Unless legal issues arise, Battlecry will continue!
