A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away... This is how the most famous space opera begins. With this mod we want to bring the Star Wars universe to the upcoming CryEngine 3. You will be able to play the whole saga from the movies when this is finished, but until then it is a lot of work... Mainly this will be a single player mod, but we will probably add multiplayer as well. We want to use most of the new features of the CryEngine 3 as procedual destruction, deferred lightning and so on as good as possible. Furthermore we want to create a couple of new features like a sabersystem, the force and much more...
Five months are a very long time and somehow they just passed and I did not realize that there was no update during this time. I feel very sorry for this and can understand that a couple of you thought our mod would be dead.It is not. Five months without any news does not mean five months without any progress but most of us are going to finish school soon and have to learn for their exams or even already started to study at university so we could not work as much on the mod as we would have liked to.
Anyway, in the meanwhile the modding tools for Crysis 2 have been released and the free CryEngine 3 mod SDK have been released and as already announced we are now developing the mod with this tools.
Furthermore we made another decision: The mod is more 1,5 years old and we are still far away from releasing anything so we decided to focus on Episode 1 now (this does NOT mean that we won´t create the other episodes anymore, we will continue after Episode 1 is finished and the assets we already made are not lost!). This decision is another reason for the lack of updates a nearly finished Kamino landing platform, the deathstar landing bay and a couple of other nearly finished assets have to wait until the first part is finished. At the moment I am writing a game (or more precise: "mod") design document to improve the efficiency of the team and you can look forward to see our B1 battledroid soon.
Our biggest problem is the fact that our team is not big enough; a lot of people left the team and this is just too much work for the few of us. If you want to support us we would be really glad, we need everybodyand due to the release of the free SDK you do not even need Crysis 2 to join the team, just send me an email if you want to help us.
May the force be with you,
Till and the "A Galaxy in Crysis" modding team
