YVaW Development Q&A Stream


In the near future we plan on doing a live Q&A stream of YVaW with a few team members live or in chat whilst playing the game. But we need something to talk about, so please submit questions you've always wanted to ask the developers either via the dedicated Discord channel, the comment section of this newspost or via theshapers.yvaw@gmail.com with the subject "Q&A livestream".

The deadline for question submissions is the August, 13th 2017.


We will go through all submitted questions and depending on the number of questions choose the most asked and most intriguing questions.
We furthermore reserve the right to omit questions, if we deem them as too personal or otherwise inappropriate (We for example won't comment on "Do you agree that mod XY sucks?" or "What's your address and real name?").

We're looking forward to your questions!

What is your estimate about how much stuff you use is actually canon (from books) and how much you have to make up?

Also, were there in factany problems from Disney when you posted the "Keeping the Expanded Universe alive" image? (I myself find it hilarious but I suppose they don't.)

What made you (the mod team) start making YVaW?

Our love of the Expanded Universe, and the fear of it being forgotten by all because of the new canon. The people who kept Star Wars alive for years, all that time between ROTJ and The Phantom Menace - these were the fans of the Expanded Universe. The Vong War was the end story, it tied everything together, Palpatine started the clone wars to form the empire all because he knew the Vong were coming... it is such a great story, our mod is an homage to the authors, to keep the EU alive and remembered.

Simple question but maybe a hard answer.

What is your special part of the mod that makes you stand out above the other mods in your opinion. and does this resemble the goal you made at the beginning of the mod, to stand out above others.

What was your initial impulse/were your initial impulses to start a project with such a scale? (Beside the things you already stated, like cooperative knowledge transfer as a result).

What are the major downside points affecting your progress? Which of those do you think are really negative for you personally?

As a team who is concerned with the Expanded Universe: Do you think that the new universe has the potential to do something great in the coming years? (Maybe with some current examples of good stuff. In my opinion the Battle of Jakku is almost like a somekind mythological new turning point. And the atmosphere in Battlefront was amazing. Just a sidenote.)

What lacks the new universe most in comparison to the old Expanded Universe in your opinion?

Your favorite faction and unit in the mod (for each member)?

I just got here, first impressions on this mod:
Your work is stunning - would love to see this released. Would like to ask, how much time does it take to work on a Capital Ship model?

To hard to tell, some are fast, some require a lot more time, and often model work in interupted due to juggling multiple tasks. But I have made a large capital in 1 day before.

How do you plan to correct the mess that is ground battles? What are some mechanics in these battles that you can tell us about?
