Hello. Here is an idea.

Star Wars: The Old Republic is an upcoming MMORPG to be released for the PC by Bioware. I was thinking about perhaps doing a mod for it, or asking someone else to do it. Basically it would be a "simple" mod that would be more about one fine tuned experience.

Features:

-Jedi Versus Sith. Choose between your own Sith or Jedi and customize with random faces, and do battle.

-Team Deathmatch for fine tuned experience. Very focused, and playable.

-Several Maps from the planets that are going to be in the game, with the same timeline, with empathy of epic lightsaber action.

-Hilts, Robes, Maps and Sabers with looks of the KOTOR era.

So basically a KOTOR-era like experience, without pink sabering stormtroppers running around.

What would be freaking amazing was if it was somehow possible or legal, to approach Lucas Arts to make this a stand alone multiplayer mod, and then maybe in return, put some Advertisment for The Old Republic MMORPG.

So many games now are going free, and you can't really buy jedi academy in stores anymore, so why wouldn't they want the expousure?

I think it could spark a giant interest if this game was released for free as a multiplayer mod. Like it could get really big.

What are your thoughts?

Please don't. We already have an MMO inspired mod in the making.

I'm not big on it. Don't expect any support or cooperation from LucasArts either.

Too bad:(

This game is dead. Everyone who is a SW fan who I encourage to buy this game does not like that it's so silly. I think a more "Less is more" focused experience would be what this game would need to get a second wind.

People thinking outside the box instead of filling games and mods with stuff we don't need. get the basics and work from there.

But I don't even think it's possible to recreate the SWTOR graphics style with Q3:(

Well... not really, no. iD Tech 3's a fifth-generation engine, TOR is an eighth-gen game.

Since technology advances much more quickly than each gaming generation, there's like, nine or ten tech levels between fifth- and sixth-gen games, even more between sixth- and seventh-gen, and yet more between seventh- and eighth-gen. In three generations of gaming we've spanned well over twenty technological advances.

The comparison gives me a mental image of sending an early biplane prototype against an F-22 Raptor, or a rubber duck against a nuclear attack sub. ($5 says the rubber duck wins. duckie.gif )


I don't know how, and I don't know why, but this is totally Sheep's fault.

If it was that rubber duck... If you want to play Knights of the Old Republic, buy that. However, if you want to play a (pretty awesome looking) MMO game based on Jedi Academy, check out the JKA Galaxies mod. Like Star Wars Galaxies, it allows loads of people to play together in a Star Wars Universe. Unlike Galaxies, you don't have to pay an extortionate monthly sum. But don't bug people about the release date! People HATE that!

1)won't that mod get in trouble name?

2)will it be stand alone? This game is impossible to find now a days. There is no more sales value for the title. Why not allow there be 3 stand alone mods? I know it has been done for quake 3? Is it because the technology belongs to raven? There must be someone who would be interested in seeing a big revival of a game. JKA has tons of stuff to offer. there is no other saber games. I am positive that it could be very popular online, and that has to count for something!?

3)Can I help on the mod? Is there anything I can do?

1. no, there's no copyright issues (LA does not own the title "JKA Galaxies"). 2. uhh not exactly sure what you're asking. 3. you can go to the JKA Galaxies thread and see if they need help.
