Greetings people of Moddb. As you know, for the past month we've been running a contest to decide a couple of map entries for Tides of War. We recieved a total of 29 entries for this competition, more than we ever thought we would recieve. Thank you to all who participated, please know that if we could, we would turn every one of these ideas into a map. However, we had to choose our two winners. Congratulations to our victors, evengidb and AUS_Doug! Their three ideas will be made into two maps, with one map being a combination of two of them. The winning ideas are:

The Spice Mines of Kessel (evengidb)











Star Destroyer: Interior (AUS_Doug):

Sarlaac: Interior (evengidb):








Congratulations once again to our lucky winners. And now, I would like to take a moment and recognize the runners-up:
Coruscant City by Karriz, and Nighttime Felucia by 411Remnant.

Please tell me the Gungan is just a placeholder! There's just something fundamentally wrong about most of the Rebel troopers being clones of Jar-Jar. It would just be too embarrassing to die at the hands of one those fellas...

Anyways, I'm still working on the lightsaber combos. I finally have a set standard of how the system will work. Basically, they can't knock people over any more. Also, all standard lightsaber attacks will be able to deflect blaster bolts and other lightsabers attacks. However, there are several weak spots in every Jedi's combo, so you'll need to find out what Jedi/Sith suits your style.

Normal lightsaber deflection has been changed as well. Now, your standard lightsaber block can deflect from all directions, and you don't lose energy from deflecting. Unfortunately, you can't move while performing this action. This is an excellent tactic to use if you need to charge up your energy for a powerful attack, but you don't want to be left vulnerable to enemy blows. Just be careful though; if you perform this action, you'll be even more vulnerable to AOE weapons, like a grenade or a mortar launcher.

Jump attacks will be one of the most interesting attacks in the mod. They aren't much more powerful than normal attacks, but if you perform it right, you can break someone's lightsaber block. Use this when your enemy is using standard deflection, and you need some way to break his block. Also, a jump attack is capable of knocking over an opponent. But beware, a poorly performed jump attack will only result in a quick defeat, as was seen in ROTS.

Nice job with the lightsabers, send me the combos when you're done, I can't wait to test them!

I'm going to use a math.random function for the Rebels on some maps. Here on Coruscant the models of the regular trooper will change every minute you spawn, they will alternate between the Urban Rebel Trooper, a gungan and a rodian. I know some of you OT fans will be upset about the gungan but tbh the alliance isn't as racist as the empire, the did have species such as gungans.

While the rebels did have gungans in their army, there weren't that many of them. Besides, gungans used a different array of weapons. They used an atlatl or a stun spear in combat.

If you've often played as a sniper in SWBF2, you would know that sometimes, headshots don't seem to work. I've been able to fix this bug by adding a tiny little explosion to the sniper rifle's ordnance. It doesn't do any damage, and it only knocks an enemy over when they're already dead. I like the new push effect, it really makes it seem like the guy is actually dying. I can send it to you if you like. To use it , simply add the function "ExplosionImpact" to your ordnance file and then set the name of the explosion file.

Also, I have a question. I've noticed that in some turrets, mainly the concussion cannons on Kashyyyk, headshots don't work. Would you be able to fix the bug?

Gungans in the alliance army used the same types of weapons that everyone else did, also this is one "legion" of the alliance, not all of them, in fact, none of the other legions will feature gungans, gungans will be one of the mshs the rebel urban legion will use. I probably won't be able to fix that bug because most stuff relating to headshots is hardcoded.

You can offset a unit's head collision. See stock Super Battle Droid.

Alright guys. I know I've been busy working on another mod, but I can assure you I am still part of this project. Belderone will be epic, as I have just downloaded Mudbox, and will be sculpting the canyon walls around the map. Glad to see this topic's finally gotten some notice!

Great! You can use the base skin I sent you for both of those units, finish the Shock Trooper first if you can, I will need it for Coruscant GCW.

Hey ARC_Troopa_Nate would you think of adding these two AT walker series Moddb.com Moddb.com

I probably won't add them, i don't add stuff just for the sake of adding it, it has to fill a purpose, and right now that's just another heavy walker that's un-canon, with almost no reference pictures or information, walkers are a pain to animate as well, so I'm not planning on adding in any walkers that aren't already made by either pandemic or someone else.

Thanks for the continued support and suggestions! :D
