I know this sounds kinda stupid, but what if a whole bunch of us started on a total conversion of sp for jedi outcast and base it on episode 1 or episode 2 or something. I mean if anyone is willing to pitch in a few skins or maps, sounds, or something... i thought it might be cool.
That doesn't sound stupid, thats what I thought about most playing through Jedi Knight II, "Man if only they made a game like this based off the real movies."
I'd love to play through a game based off Return of the Jedi, or Empire Strikes Back, etc. but it probably will never happen because it would just take too much work, and I don't think Raven will release an SDK.
I wish somebody out there would take the time though.
I thought of a total conversion when I bought the game, I really wish that someone good skinner and good mapers and all that would become controled by a evil force that make them make it!!!
you might gather a crowd for it, but it would really help you with recruiting if you're an awesome skinner or modeller.
anyway i would like a TC like that, but you've also got keep in mind that if it gets well known lucas might close it down cause they make no money about it
Aren´t we allowed to create total conversions for each other? But we maybe can try to do it anyway?
you can make TCs that have nothing to do with Star Wars and publically disperse them...but if you ad them on a website and lucas catches wind of an episode I/II TC he'll have a court order to prevent you from releasing it...simply because there's no money in it for him - kind like what happened with bid for power. your best bet is to make the TC with different characters, then just release a mod that has all the approriate models :P
But why are they creating editors for us then???
Well, I think you can create Episode 1 or 2 mod from Jedi Outcast without being kicked out by LucasArts
It is always stated that anyone who are fans to something (let's say Star Wars) are allowed to create their own fanstuffs as long as it is non-commercial and we tell the ppl that Star Wars is registered under LucasArts. So that could include making our own games for Star Wars etc.
Yes because theyhaven´t erazed the skins of the characters from Episode 1 and 2 that someone have done!!! So why can´t you do an total conversion, and there´s maps and sounds too, so I don´t understand!
