View Full Version : ** Q&A with Garry Gaber Announcement **

07-08-2003, 08:07 PM
Not getting your hopes up....but...

GB.com will be holding a Q&A with Garry soon. Questions to ask would be along the lines of the old game, what he has been upto and also a touch on his project.

Speaking to LA today, the project is far off and probably will surface around the time of Episode 3.

So get your thinking caps on.

I've probably got a million... I'll have to narrow it down to a few to send in :D

07-08-2003, 10:32 PM
Sweet... I'll have to think about about some good questions besides the obliged one:

- What is the new project he's working on?

And just to thank him for being in touch with the community and for adding up the cool shield effect at least on fambaas. :D

Be sure to tell him that DMUK, ok? ;)

We've been waiting for this...
Thanks Garry

Meanwhile let's think up some questions.

What program was used to create/draw/model the units and buildings for Galactic Battlegrounds?


How about requesting a mod for us to make for you?:D

07-10-2003, 03:41 PM
I DO want to know what his favorite mod(s) is(are)... if he has tried any ;) *cough*seenmine?*cough*

pbguy-you're real slick...;)

Id ask him if his new projedct was an RTS, and if it used their own engine (2d or 3d) and if there will be unique or generic building/unit sets.

Oh yeah, I also wanted to ask if MP is going to be on LA's own server or the Zone, cause the Zone hates us. They dispise our game and take pleasure in seeing their negligence ruin it. I think its because somehow LA is connected to one of the many companies that are in competition with MS (AOL Time Warner being the most prominent).

07-13-2003, 03:01 AM
pardon my ignorance, but how is LA associated with AOL/Time Warner?

Um... right...

DMUK, when will the interview be held?

07-14-2003, 04:29 PM
They're not (as far as I know). I was just saying how MS has a lot of competitors that they aren't exactly friends with, and I used AOL Time Warner as an example.

07-14-2003, 05:42 PM
OIC now... sorry for being so slow :D

07-16-2003, 08:29 PM
Well, here are some questions, the blue ones are about the game:

- What is the new project you're working on about? (I had already posted this one)

- Is it an RTS?

- Will it use an original engine or will it borrow an existing one?

- If it is an RTS, what have you learnt from SWGB that you will be able to apply (or eliminate) for the next game?

- This is not a game question, but I would like to know: What would be the best career to study in order to work as a game designer? (not programmer nor artist)

Man! It's difficult to ask about something you don't have a clue about, I think once he clarifies the blue questions, asking will be easier.

How much longer til the interview?! :D

07-21-2003, 11:23 AM
Probably the end of next week. Then it could take a couple of weeks to get the replies etc


07-21-2003, 12:06 PM
Damn, that long?

Corran Horn DFD
07-24-2003, 07:29 PM
Okay, now how long?

07-25-2003, 11:43 AM
Just a little longer. Ronda is away doing these Lucasarts comic con things currently, so I have to wait for her to get back and my other contact is busy currently.

Wont be long


07-29-2003, 08:37 PM
ya ask him

-Is it an RTS

-Will it be similar to SWGB and SWGB:CC

_and now the whole stuff: new civs, new units, space and ground battles aso.

07-29-2003, 08:54 PM
Another question:

- DMUK tells us the project is far off, a release around Episode 3, why is it so far ? Because of the development of technology for the game, or because you're anticipating it to contain Episode 3 content?

08-05-2003, 06:13 AM
how long to wait????

Corran Horn DFD
08-13-2003, 02:03 AM
Is it time yet? :)

08-13-2003, 02:15 AM
OK i have question...

What new triggers if you do will be included in the Secnario Editor if there is going to be one, and if there is one will there be pre-set cinematic triggers that could be used to create AI cinematics either to be used at the start of a custom made level or would you make them flexiable so that they could be activated at any time ?

Ok, it might need shortining :p

08-14-2003, 07:27 AM
pleaaaaaaaaaaaase no scenario Editor!!!!

08-14-2003, 12:52 PM
as much as a ihate the lame ass scenarios that ruin the zone, i dont see them dropping the editor if they make a #2

08-15-2003, 02:40 PM
The Editor gives you the ability to create your own scenarios, make your own stories and countless other possibilities. You can't blame the lame-ass scenario on the Editor but rather on the guy who made the scenario.

08-15-2003, 04:12 PM
Look out for the Q&A in a couple of weeks time as GB.com prepares to relaunch with a new look, updated information and who knows... maybe a glimpse into the next Lucasarts RTS. *fingers crossed*
