Star Wars Conquest is a Mount&Blade module which transforms a medieval world into the far, far away galaxy... with the same premises than the original game, this module offers an open sandbox where the player can do anything he wants. Based on a Galactic map and hundreds of planets.

Since the mod is making such completely awesome progress, and it has been officially stated that a Warband port is one of the upcoming goals, I thought it might be a good idea to make a general thread for ideas for the multiplayer mode. As the players and immense Star Wars geeks as we are, we can be a wealth of brilliant - and mind-numbingly impossible - suggestions. Really, we never shut up. So, in order to keep everything organized, I volunteer to maintain a thread in which I will edit the first post to contain the best and most reasonable suggestions.

Things to consider for multiplayer:

Factions: Do we limit to the big three factions in SWC single player, or do we want to also include minor and retro factions like the Clones, CIS, Wookiees and Mandalorians?

Units: What sort of units should be available? How should the classes be differentiated?
After speaking with a few knowledgeable folks in the Warband modding community, I've learned that it is possible - though rather difficult - to limit a troop class to a certain number of players. Is this a possible balancing feature for the implementation of Jedi and Sith? Could this be used as a method to implement "hero" troops like Darth Vader or Han Solo?

Equipment: Pricing of equipment is one of the main balancing points in Warband. Using the default starting gold of 1000, and a 500 gold bonus after each round, how should equipment be priced in order to maintain a balanced game?

Special Features: Should there be Star Wars-oriented game modes? An objective- and class-based mode (see: Jedi Academy mod Movie Battles II) would be possible. Should there be an attempt to implement SWC single-player features like the jetpack and force jump? 

Limitations: Keep in mind the hardcoded limitations to multiplayer. For instance, as I understand there is a hardcoded limit of two races (i.e., male and female) for multiplayer. Unless this is changed in later versions, it would mean that there cannot be custom skeletons for player-controlled Jawas or Rancors, and all aliens would have human voices - or voices would have to be removed entirely.

So, legions of rabid Star Wars and Mount&Blade fans, post your suggestions for the potential SWC Warband multiplayer mode, and discuss which ones you feel work best.

I think multiplayer factions should be map/scenario specific. So there might be Rebels vs. Imperials on Hoth, Clones vs. Droids on Geonosis, or Wookies vs. Trandoshans on Kashyyyk.

I don't know if any of you here play any online mods for Warband but I play c-RPG / Strategus. For those who don't know what this is, it's a mod that allows you to gain gold and buy better equipment, as well as level up. Strategus provides an online map of Calradia that clans can fight to control using their c-RPG characters and using armies etc. I'm not gonna describe it in full but have a look on the Taleworlds forums under Warband mods and you'll find it.

Anyway I'd LOVE to see something like this for SWC. Players could choose a race and then gather credits and experience by fighting allowing them to use better equipment etc. People could choose to become jedi or sith, troopers or berserkers or anything in between. Then if we were to introduce an online version of the galaxy - similar to the strategus map... well I think I just had a little accident.

If only this could happen, not sure about the possibility of it happen but we can all dream

I've pinned+unlocked it. I'm really interested in reading your suggestions. The mod is for you after all :)

I think that there could be a few servers with ranks and a few without. Also, I wonder what a gungame mode would be like for this.

The cRPG boards are filled with mindless cretins, and I'd hate to see that happen to SWC if they make it similar to cRPG but in Star Wars. *shudder*

It wouldn't need to be a cRPG clone at all, I just would like to have a server that stores your rank and weapons. There wouldn't need to be a forum thread and all the code would be server-side.

I posted this on the Warband poll, but then saw this thread and realized it should go here.  It seems to be a similar suggestion to Panda6666's, but yet different.  Here is what I would love to see, if it's possible: 
     I don't have warband yet.  I will be getting it.  My friend and I like to play cooperative multiplayer games.  I would love to see in your port the ability to play multiplayer against AI opponents, with both sides having armies.  Also, I would love to be able to play a coop multiplayer game with my friend that played much like the single player game, (with leveling, collecting items, gold, the main map, factions, heroes, and all of that,) though I suspect that might be nearly impossible.  But hey, you never know if you don't ask.  Keep up the great work guys!

Not bump since it's stickied 8)


Factions could be as in Battlefront / BF2, it could be CIS versus Republic, Empire versus Rebels or the "hunting" factions like the Tuskens and Gungans.
Or you could consider the KoTOR planetary governments, or even some species like the Balinaka and Thanu :lol:

I think IF they do something like cRpg it would have too be more along the lines of persistant world, So you start off as a bounty hunter/Guard/merchant and then work your way from their joining diffrent factions or creating your own travelling too diffrent citys/planets mining and what not, But not a total war kind of campaign map :S

Factions: We shouln't add factions that don't exist in singleplayer. I think there should be Rebel Alliance (with Jedis, Wookies etc), Galactic Empire (with Bounty Hunters, Mandalorians etc), Hutt Cartel and maybe Outlaws (?).

Units: Ranked units (droids, stormtroopers, commandos), limited units (mandalorians, jedis/siths, pilots) and without and special units like Darth Vader/Han Solo because of their probabl overpower (I mean that any noob could then pick this unit and it would be horrible)

Equipment: I think everything should be for free. :)

Special Features: "Should there be Star Wars-oriented game modes? An objective- and class-based mode (see: Jedi Academy mod Movie Battles II) would be possible. Should there be an attempt to implement SWC single-player features like the jetpack and force jump?" Yes. Bear Force (a mod for WB) devs. inserted this into their mod and this all look awesome.
