I'm hoping nobody has made a post similar to this, because I don't want to piss people off for just registering and not scanning the forums... Anyways, I am mosesofegypt (CoH name and Xfire name) and I love Star Wars. Unfortunately, Lucasarts has not been very successful in making a great RTS game. Star Wars: Empire at War was average at best, and the gameplay got too repetitive. I was wondering if anyone would want to help me create a mod for Company of Heroes that would resemble the Star Wars Universe. The problem is, I don't know the first thing about modding. I just know a lot about Star Wars. I was thinking of changing the skins, sounds, and abilities. We can do the maps in a later version or something. I already know basically what I want to change, but I don't have the ability to do it. If anyone is interested in helping, or supporting this, please make a post or xfire me at mosesofegypt.
The idea of this is fantastic and all, but if you think about it the whole concept would take a huge amount of time. Don't even get me started on a Star Wars Environment, you would have to skin every objective, or even, create a massive amount of models to get that Star Wars Effect. I personally would love to see something like this, maybe with the characters such as Clones, Droids, Darth Malak, Yoda and so on.
I will give this ago and give you my support, but that isn't modding I'm afraid. I'm only a mapper. I suggest if you want to do something like this you start on a less advanced project, and build up.
... wookies could be the British because they never move from their base haha i think boba or jango should be one of the snipers. that would be cool.
but yes it would be hard to do a total conversion mod with no modeling tools
I can might help with some skins :)
Personally, if you want to get this modification on the road you should start by buying a website with a domain.
I need support from different people first. As you said Ice, the SW environment would be very hard, so I wanted to just start with the skins, voices, and abilites of each soldier. As for the buildings and the landscape, that would be a whole nother project.
