Well we have been busy these past few weeks. We have had 3 new people join us and we have been making many things. As you can see we have a new site for the mod. Its not as unorganized as the old one and is cleaner and even loads faster. There are many things to talk about though.
First of all in addition to Legacy of War we will be making a mini-mod called Star Wars: Road to Victory. This mini-mod will include all of the Ep 5 and Ep 6 things we were looking forward to in EaW but are not going to get. Units such as the B-Wing, TIE interceptor, ect. We will put these units in and also complete the camapign so you will be able to go all the way up to Ep 6. This mod is for those who generally do not like the Expanded Universe but still want to see Ep 5 and 6 in the game. This mod will be out before Legacy and also include a few ships such as the Lancer Frigate which were in service during that time period. If you don;t like the EU but still want to play through Ep 5 and 6 then this is for you.
As you may have noticed we have been lacking in the showing of ground units. I'm pleased to say that we will now be showing more. What units could we possible be making? I know for one that there are many Dark Trooper fans out there =). You will see more ground units from now on. We are still in the process of making more units and have even now just begun to have the textured. The next update should be interesting indeed.
I would like to welcome three new members to the Legacy team. Eldor, Cubit, and Avace. Eldor has already shown himself to be a highly motivated individual with a good eye for detail. He will be doing some spaceships and later on he will be doing ground units. I know we haven't shown many if any at all of them but they are on the way. Cubit has also shown himself to be a highly motivated but is at the moment undergoing exams at university. We look forward to his work in the very near future. Avace is the first texture artist to join the team. Many thanks go to him for joining. He is currently texturing the TIE interceptor and from looking at his work on other projects I can say that it will be somehting to look forward to. He will also be texturing our other models as well so if you thought that we were putting in these ugly grey models into the game you can lay down your fear.
We will, sometime at the end of December and early January, start randomly selecting people from the forums to be Beta testers. Obviously you have to be a member of the forum to be picked, but the opportunity to be chosen is an interesting prospect. We will randomly select one person a month. If they decline the offer then we will pick another person. Beta slots or even the rare Alpha slot will be given away in this fashion. Sorry Staff you already have your slots ;).
Recently is was revealed by Delphi that heros can be brought back but at a price. The staff is debating the idea of making heros so they can die and stay dead. We would like to hear your thoughts on the matter and why you feel one way or the other. In the future we will have polls on the forums about particular issues and we would like you to give your thoughts. I'm also proud to announce that around early January we will have our first Mod Chat. This will be where you the fans can ask the team questions about the mod, all in real time. No list of questions. You'll hear more about this at the end of December.
What does the future hold? Does it hold B-Wings, yes. Expanded B-Wings, yes. What about Super Star Destroyers? ;) What about textured models? defiantly! I am thinking about purchasing a domain name for us so that will be interesting indeed. I'd also like you to turn your attention to EaWNexus. This will become the premier source for modding knowledge. The site is still in its early stages. When the game is released there will be tutorials and scripts up for download to help aspiring modders. Legacy of War is on there so go stop by and register.
