Okay, 1) EA's Battlefront is *extremely* different from the Battlefield franchise, so much so that it's to a fault IMO, and 2) Pandemic had always meant Battlefront to be an homage to Battlefield, according to the developer diaries.

@Marth -- maybe so, but I feel like SWBF1/2 have a more distanced relationship to the Battlefield games of the time than the modern counterparts. That's all he's saying.

Great to see our mod is popular.

I wonder whether they made own video material or took ours. The i noticed they cut the left side and sometimes gend came in. Pretty sure it was the ending of thelegend. So they took our video material :D

I wouldnt be surprized if SWHQ did take your footage. They like to make a lot of videos in a short amount of time and sometimes they feel a little bit click baity, so maybe they thought it would be faster to just use pre done footage than recording it themselves.

Hm well...Where else shall they get footage from this mod (video wise) if not taking it directly from my channel? Anyway I am glad more people like what we do.

And here's a larger Update showcasing a bunch of new characters mainly from the cancelled Story Campaign:

Hidden/Spoiler:
Image


We have Rahm Kota, X2, Falon Gray, Ferroda and Darth Sidious. All with their weapons (blades so far) and force powers.
Some force powers have been changed and edited a bit. Some new ones have been added. For example a 360° Force Push or Lightning Cannon.

Darth Sidious uses two variants of Force Lightning: Simple (Default) and "Flash-Cannon". The second one is a powerful, energy-draining, cannon like force attack which grills enemies quickly and pushes far away. Similair to this scene from Episode III: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ESOrF_ ... u.be&t=239

I still need to fix his arms. I use cloth instead of actual meshes to make him look better. Somehow the Envelope; Fixed Points stuff didn't work well. But so far I am happy with the result.

And here you can watch a gameplay video showcasing the new characters, their animations and sets, weapons and force powers as well as some additions to the map: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vnxeGuOKaDM

I don't know if there is anything you can do about this, but some of your characters' upper arms look weirdly long. Particularly Lando and Zam's arms.

I love how the mod is coming along! Keep up the good work.

I noticed that too. I can see it on the clone troopers. I thought it was just me. Rahm Kota looks sick though! :thumbs:

I also just noticed the emperor is very similar to how he is in EA battlefront. It looks super creepy, which is a complement. Whoever is animating these is a really good talent.

No NO NO just No lol, X2 used a DC-15 Carbine not a pistol put the clonetrooper animation on him.

Also are you guys planning to fix most of these models cause their rigging looks really bad.

Their weapons are definitely not final, as they mentioned. I think every new character has a pistol while they test the models.

They could pull the project and take their own pictures/videos ;)

Do you mean X2 or the clones?? if you mean the clones, what is wrong with them?? can you show a screenshot??

Yes the weapons are not final. For example i want the sniper rifle to be like the puls cannon. But at the moment it ist still stock lua.
And you don't wanna see the pistol from the cis. I'm using the stock rep rifle as a dummy mesh for every weapon that has not been ported yet XD

What do you mean by their rigging??

Rigging is enveloping and weighting to a skeleton.

He probably meant "skinning", where you bind the mesh to the skeleton via envelope and weighting.
The skin weights may need to be further refined to avoid unnatural deformation during animation sequences.

ok i see. But since there is only 100 or 0 possible for the weights i don't see a way to make it much better.

Look at X2 ingame. His arms just seem....oversized. Its not noticeable on some units, like Rahm, but is on others, like Lando. It's not a huge deal, things still look good.

I have to agree.

You guys are doing an outstanding job, but some player models should be improved a little bit.

Everyone who likes this project, please let me know the following:

I have good and bad news. The good one is I added some more, working heroes. They look excilent in-game and work fine "at all".
And, unfortunately, there are bad news. What I am going to say does only affect Hero Assault Mode. As many of you know Battlefront two has its limits. Some are understandable and some are just...unbelievable. Unfortunately today I probably hit a limit: The Animation Bank Limit. So far no one ever managed to raise it to allow as many Soldier Animations as possible...And I am asking you. Please choose between the following two options or maybe give me/us your ways of bypassing this:

1. Hero Assault Mode will be downgraded. That means there are far less animations, combos and so on. There will be less heroes and villians, less weapons...Just everything less to keep things as low as possible. I personally do not like this option which gave me an idea for option 2:

2. Hero Assault will be divided into CW and GCW. Battlefront II and III and other Star Wars Games offer a great variety of heroes, villians and characters. We will cover many of them. So what do you think If we divide Hero Assault into two eras. CW heroes will fight each other in CW and the same goes for GCW.
If you think Option 2 is better, what I think too about, then I will be able to add more new animations, new combos and a lot of new stuff.

I know some of you may want to see duels like Vader vs Yoda, Kota vs Dooku or Boba vs Mace Windu...but If you want to do this then...as stated in option 1 you may need to expect less content than promised.

I hope you understand this decision but at least there is still a way to keep the content but not all at once then.
