I got an emil from somone who's been watching the mod and asked me to post some type of an update on the status of the mod.
Well currently the status is that I'm working on it alone but I am still open to people wanting to be on the team. I've already gone through many Lucas arts copyrights rules about making mods off their material and besides the mod being named "Star Wars" empire, the omd is a go because of all the extrea stuff I've been recreating and kept all the copyrighted material away.
Since the problem of importing my models into HL2 i've been doing this as a side project exploring the code working on developing a good UI, getting some of the basic item properties compiled and learning how to create custom entities so I can place these things in my maps using Hammer.
So really the status is active but not, if you can understadn that. I am looking for people to join the team, such as mappers, modelers, and coders, its hard doing all everything by yourself, as I should know, but the mod is making progress slowly.
