This mod will be based on the upcoming machinima I am working on: Star Wars Republic Commando: Embers of War. All materials, maps, textures, etc. that will be developed from this project will eventually be made into a campaign for the Republic Commando community. Think of this as a revival. The new campaign will be split into the 3 years of the Clone Wars following a new squad, Fireteam Vegas. Almost all the missions that will be played out in the machinima will attempted to be replicated into a mod. At the moment this is a one man project so I'd appreciate it if there are other RC modders out there that can help out. All materials used from other mods will of course be credited. Think of this as a tribute to everyone for the past 10 years of keeping this game alive.

As requested, this a general outline of what the campaign story will look like. Although it will be based on the storyline of the Machinima, there will be some major/minor changes, depending on the modability of the game.

"I think one of the first things I remember about the Clone Wars... was how quickly situations would become desperate. From the beginning, we've always known we'd be outnumbered and out gunned. We always counted on that. What we didn't expect, was how long the battles would draw out. How planet after planet would fall to the Separatists, even after defeating endless and relentless waves of battle droids. You still hear stories... about how our Jedi Generals were on the frontlines leading us into battle... but that wasn't always the case. For most of the war, there were no Jedi to save us. Just our training, our blasters, our brothers, and of course... the commandos." -Unknown Clone Monologue (Post Clone Wars)

For the rest of this post, it will be focused only on the campaign storyline for the mod.

As I've stated before, the game will be split into the three years of the Clone Wars, varying from different planets, locations, events, etc. I will be focusing away from the current Disney canon of Star Wars and "The Clone Wars" CGI show, so there will not be any characters from that show (i.e. Rex, Cody, Wolfe, Fives, etc.). And with that being said, sadly, Delta Squad will not be the focus of this mod. We will be focusing on a new squad, Fireteam Vegas, that will have an entirely new perspective of the Clone Wars.

Instead of hearing the clones with one voice and with "Star Wars Lingo", you will interpret the Clone Wars through the mindset of a clone commando. So there will be more cursing you can recognize, more dialogue or events that are story driven. It will be darker and grittier than the game and you, as a clone, will be more emotionally involved to any and ALL characters you meet. There will be victories, but in war, there will be tragic and unsuspected losses as well. And eventually, through the adventures of Fireteam Vegas, we WILL find out what happens to Sev and especially the clones after the end of the Clone Wars.

The rest of the story is still on the drawing board but this is generally what I have so far. If people can pitch ideas as to what type of stories they would like to experience, that would be amazing and make my life easier :D

technically the clone wars saved the republic commando's because in season 3 episode 14 in the intro to it delta squad appears to give a jedi's body back to the council

One question, who's voicing your commandos?

I will do part of the voice acting of the generic voices/sounds; I'm trying to get a few friends on board with this project (since we normally have the best and most natural banter between us hahaha). If not, then I'll do it all myself or if someone has a high quality mic and good voice acting skills, I'll get them on board too.

Awesome if I had modding skills I would do this. You are going the same direction I was thinking of if I were to make a mod for this game.

Hey, I am a mapmaker (I have experience with Unreal) for Republic Commando and have a good knack for voiceovers as well. Reach me at epicrecordmusic at gmail dot com if you're interested. I am more than happy to offer my services for this project if it is still on-going.
