i dont know, having the R2 unit destroyable seems kinda stupid. unless the R2 unit has lots of health and shielding it would be really easy to destroy, unlike in ctf you have to kill a person to stop them.

i dont know if its possible, but it would be neat to be able to control the droid, like in SP. That way you can hide him, follow your team mates who are protecting you and stay out of harms way better. and to protect the controller maybe have the droid controls behind a force field, so when he starts to use it the field goes up. that sounds a little unrealistic, but i think would be better.

actually, control of the r2 unit will be possible. Simply get your Tech Specialist to the enemy control room, and as he "works his magic" there, he'll be able to possess and control ANY droid on the enemy team...EVEN the enemy R2 unit (the flag)

If you guys need a skinner I may be your man,...

What you've described here has the makings of a lot of the ideas I have floating around inside my head,... Even my 'Hoth Rebel Forces' skin pack I've been working on seems to be made for it. Hoth Rebel Skins

I love this idea. Ever since I began to play JO I've been thinking about an Empire VS Rebel fortress style game. I don't know why they didn't add one before.

I really want to play a level like the old fortress style games but set at the invasion of echo base.

Looking forward to this.

I like this mod a lot Nodata because while it's got a great concept and it has awesome ideas, it also seems very possible, and the production time would be cut in half because of all the available models and stuff....Brilliant!

I just hope you guys can complete this mod, I just saw one of the most promising mods go under (Kaiburr Saga) :-(

P.S.

I have a few questions please...

1. Are you going to get rid of team skins? It's pretty obvious that you would but I just want to make sure I was just wondering how Bounty Hunters would work? Perhaps Jango for the Rebels and Boba for the imperials? I don't know, I just hate those dreaded team skins.

2. Will each team have its Jedi? I.E. Luke, Maul, Vader..

3. Is Solo in it? If so what class does he fit under? How about Chewbacca?

Ok thanks for listening if you guys need a critique or someone that is online 24/7 and will give you ideas and stuff...Let me know


The way a man deals with defeat is just as big a mark of his character as how he comes home from a victory.

-qoute-


From talking to Chaff. 1. There arent going to be team skins.
2. While there will be Jedi, but I dont believe its only going to be one jedi...Jedi = one of the many classes to choose from.
3. I believe solo and Chewbacca would fit even under the Scoundrels (Smugglers etc read the site for more info on that)


of course I could be wrong , just stating what I've picked up on

Yes, we have a VERY dedicated team working on the mod, which includes more than one PROFESSIONAL. So we're NOT going anywhere. We're trying to watch our backs as far as legal issues go, so we shouldn't get shut down either.

As far as using existing models, yeah that's a major benefit to doing a mod that is NOT a total conversion. New models will not have to be made, and any new models that sprout up will be able to be easily put into the mod.

Answers:

1. Yes we ARE going to get rid of team skins. The enemy will simply be indentified as being the enemy. No nice colors to tell who is who. Simply put, if you're a Stormtrooper...better not shoot those other Stormies!

1.b. Bounty Hunters: They will be present in the mod and will function something like this...They will be a sort of Neutral team. Each team General will be able to Offer Bounty Hunter players to join their team, by offering them a sum of Credits. Bounty Hunters can accept or decline the General's offer, but will only gain points for skills if they are actively working for a team. The more money a Bounty Hunter collects from the different teams, the more skills he will be given, and the more equipment he'll be able to purchase. Becareful though. Since BOTH teams can bid on the same Bounty Hunter, they could switch sides at any time, and won't generally be trusted by EITHER side because of this. "Bounty hunters? We don't need their kind of scum!"

2. Yes, both teams will have Jedi...well the Empire team will have Sith, but that's a given. And we plan to use Most if not ALL of the major characters from the movies. So yeah, Luke, Vader, Maul..will all be in there in their appropriate timelines.

3. Solo: He's PLANNED to be in it, as a Scoundrel or Smuggler class. As to what the special benefits are going to be for that class...well you'll just have to wait and see!

Hope that helps!

Thanks a lot for the fast reply...BTW, if you can pull that Bounty hunter thing off, that has got to be one of the most brilliant ideas I've ever heard...

One more question, sorry heh

Are there going to be new weapons? Are you removing any weapons?

Thanks! About the weapons: Yeah we're probably going to revamp most of the weapons. The only one I can say I'm REAL happy with is the Imperial Blaster Rifle...the other's weren't even really in the films...

Too bad one mod replaces another, if you made it so your mod was an extension of JK 2 ++ I'd consider trying it out on my server (when your mod works) otherwise, no.

I don't think that you understand the depths this mod will go. JK2++ merely improves upon the existing elements in Jedi Outcast, and makes no major attempt to add new ones. Now, while that is GREAT for what it is, it's not the same as Jedi Fortress.

I'm not flaming JK2++, I think it's a GREAT idea. I'm just stating that it's not a major modification, merely a server tweak to the exisiting game.

I understand that but I enjoy about 98% of the tweaks that JK 2 ++ offers.

Do you plan on boosting the forces, saber fighting, and removing assfighting, as does the JK 2 ++ mod?

See my concern?

You're still thinking on a smaller scale. "Assfighting" won't be a problem in the mod, as not every character will be a Jedi, or even have access to force powers. As far as boosting the force powers...YES. That is planned already and we've even done some preliminary testing with Level 4 force powers. Saber Fighting will be tweaked as well, and will probably NOT rely on Movement + Key commands to do a specific attack. It will instead rely upon button combinations and your level of skill. In this way, instead of swinging while running away from your enemy, just to get the attack you want to come out, you will be able to perform EXACTLY whichever swing you want to do, WHEN you want to do it.

So yeah...you could say we're going to tweak saber fighting.

Looks absolutely amazing, if you can pull it off (of which, so far, I have complete faith you will).

I'll definatly be watching it...but I have a question:

You mentioned that Luke, Vader, ect. would be in scenarios on their proper timeline...who determines the players that get to take on these, obviously, massive roles, and what advantages will they have over others? Or will they be NPCs (AI) and I just missed that somewhere?

In any situation, however, this mod looks EXTREMELY promising, I'll definatly play.

Thanks! Now on to your questions!

Luke, Vader etc: Will all be player classes. Jedi to be exact (or Sith). Just the same as you can choose to play a Jedi now, you will be able to choose to play a Jedi within the mod. As of now, there's no limit to the amount of Jedi we are planning on allowing per team (however one may be coded in the future if we find a need for such a limit.) Jedi players though, will start with few force powers and skills (Just like all classes) and will have to play well to and work towards their goals to become a Jedi Master. Sith, on the other hand are a different story. At any given time, there will probably be only 2 Sith players ("Always 2 there are, a master and an apprentice."). For the Darkside, there will be other Sith players, but they will only allowed to obtain a small amount of power before they will have to Challenge the current MASTER or APPRENTICE Sith, to take his/her place.

Jedi will be given their own limits...to balance them out with the 2 Sith...

How's that sound?

i am very excited about this mod, so while i cannot provide a lot of time to help (or skills for that matter), I CAN make classes pretty well (i have for DnD and other RPG's) if you give me a layout, stats for the class, etc., i can jazz it up, make it awesome looking, whatever. thats about ALL i can do lol

another thing, what about x-wing battles or snow speeders on Hoth - AI or CPU controlled?

awesome idea again

Thanks, but I always took this to mean that no Sith was a loner, each either had a master they learned from, or an apprentice they taught. I didn't know there could only be two Sith at one time. Then again, I've never read any of the books except a few about Leia and Han Solo's Twins, and that was a long time ago.

However, I think my question was misunderstood. You said Jedi and Sith will be playable, but also SPECFIC ones too, like Luke and Vader...I took this to mean that there could be lots of Jedi, but only one Luke, and lots of Sith, but only one Vader...

I personally think classes are a bad idea.

Just use inv/ammo/weapon stations like in Tribes and people can customize their own classes.

That way they can get deployables like forcefields, sentry's, etc, and you can get all your weapons and ammo in one place.

Sorry to sound bad, but that WILL NOT WORK.

Imagine the rushing to grab the sith spot. Also, RPG elements do not work in first person shooters. It just makes people whore their way to the top skill level, making them practically invincible.

I don't see how you are going to balance jedi?

You would have to remove all weapons but lightsabers, and remove their bullet-block ability or tone it down a lot (such as halving movement speed when the block button is pressed)

Removing all weapons but the lightsabers from the Jedi and Sith is already planned. Jedi and Sith will use nothing but lightsabers in the mod (well force powers too, but that's a given).

As far as players "rushing to get the sith spot," perhaps you all misunderstood me. See there will be any number of Sith players at one time, however, only 2 of them will be able to obtain any actual power. In order for a Sith that is not one of those 2 to obtain any amount of power, he must challenge and defeat one of the ones IN power. If he loses, he loses skill points and/or credits. If he wins, he gains skill points and the ability to advance as a Sith. The previous Master, will be dethroned and pushed back to lower level. Such is the price one pays for following the darkside. A quick and easy path to power (simply defeat those above you) but you also MUST defend your title.

Jedi will have it a bit easier, though will probably advance slower.

Does that make it a little clearer?

You know...Jedi were just people too...not gods.


yeah...remove all weapons, and having to actually WORk at blocking....would be like the movies.

I never saw Luke running around with a weapon after he got into the Jedi state. Never saw Obi-Wan running around with a repeater, or even a blaster.



Jedi were people. Everday people, just that they were FORCE SENSITIVE. That's why they get force powers....they weren't the "unkillables" One blaster sht could kill them if the Jedi didn't work on blocking it.

Ah yes... where does staying-true-to-the-movie end and game-playability begin?

The Force will be with you, always.
