Anyone making a BATTLEFIELD: CLONE WARS mod?
Now this is one idea I'd love to see come to fruition! Separatist army... Republic Clone army... Jedi possibly (as a single class kit)... Geonosians... the list could go on.
I wouldn't mind heading it up if we could get a good sized team. But, I'd mostly be a graphics/web guy. I do a little modeling, but I don't know much about modding itself. I could provide some server space and a website and be an organizational leader... anyone interested that could contribute?
Jedi's for Battlefield would be stupid with the knife random swings. :uhm:
Would probably have to focus more on the Clone and Droid armies... no reason Jedis had to be at every battle. Would complicate things too much with lightsabers and force powers, etc. for the game.
Agree with both of you... hence the "possibly." Unless the game is for Jedi (i.e. Jedi Knight series of games), it wouldn't work too well, IMHO. I don't know crap for modding... hopefully someone out there will bite.
Argh, that would be hard, as only two total conversions have been made/released to the public as of now.
It might not happen, but it would make an awesome mod.
I'd concentrate on just the Clone Army v. the Geonosians. The Clone Army side would be pretty easy skin/head-wise because you'd want them to all be the same. Have the two body types be Captain and Soldier and have the two heads (for each) be with helmet and without. There's a wealth of info on the weapons out there. Make the VC be the Geonosians, of course, but the technology might have to be figured out or made up. I just don't know a lot about the Geonosians - I didn't get any books on the 2nd movie like those Visual Dictionaries. Helo's can be those troop transports, etc. I think it'd rock.
Of course you'd need to make a barren wasteland map for Geonosis, but otherwise you could fake a few known locations.
A tip for modellers - if you're looking to do this project - just check out the free SW models available on the `net. There's a few of them and most of them, one in particular, have a lot of Episode 2 stuff.
I think it'd be clone soldiers against federation droids. The droids (battle droids and super battle droids) have color markings to distinguish ranks, same as the clones. Then, you'd have some obvious vehicles that would be cool. Every from staps, to troop transports, to tanks, walkers, etc. You could have jedi starfighters, naboo fighters, droid fighters in place of the jets. And, I'm sure their'll be some cool stuff in Episode III that could be incorporated.
