This mod is based around the Expanded Universe. In the short term, we are goin to be Making the Gallactic Alliance vs. The Yuuzhan Vong, we have great ideas for maps, and we are even modelling the coralskippers (i think we are up to texturing it) at the moment. Even a Clawcraft fighter has been modelled for a few maps.

we have got and excellent team together at the moment, but we still need some more people.

If your interested in helping with the creation of the Expanded Universe Mod for Star Wars Battlefront,

Goto: http://www.poinda.maxmax6.com/Expanded_Universe/ become a member and then either PM, Benjo (me) or e-mail me at bhoning@optusnet.com.au, about joining the Modding team to create this Mod and you will be added to a special Usergroup to view the private forum about the Mod.

If anyone is willing to help us put this mod together, please head over to the forum, and join in on the planning!

We are really looking for:
4-5 modellers and coding people,
1-2 map creators,

What we REALLY need is a character modeller, if possible someone who's done models for Jedi Academy?

We would prefer to have experienced people to create the model's, but if you feel that you could do a good job and may be able to help us out with it in some way, PM me... most of us are new to this, so don't feel like you have to be PRO at it.

We currently have a new section of our site that allows for the public to view the development of the mod.

In this public area, people are able to ask questions about the MOD and also post here if they wish to join the team.

Hope you come and check us out!

Hope to talk to some of you guys soon

Sounds awesome, I've always wondered what a Coralskipper looks like :D

Anyway, if someone would teach me how to mod, I'd do it. Or if there is a site that teaches you. But unfortunately, I do not know the first thing about how to go about modding. Sorry.

We haven't started yet, we can't, but because 3dmax allows you to import to almost any game editor, we have started throwing together some ships and that sorta thing

We have completely finished the design and other aspects of our mod.

Once the game and modding tools come out, we well be able to start the modding of the game straight away.

We are still looking for some people to help with this mod

Sorry to bump, but I have a Coralskipper modelled. Do you guys want to use it? I was making it for JA, but people never got around to finishing it. It is in .3ds format, .gmax format, or .md3 format.

:fett:

*gives this mod stamp of approval*

Don't disappoint me Admiral. <.<

Yeah, I hope this mod works out, but how are you going to work out the Yuuzhan Vong? Their main weapon is the amphistaff, and it's gonna look strange with Vong throwing thud/razor bugs :/

Benjo

**cough** throwing grenades **cough** and we are going to implement the amphistaffs like the lightsabers... and at a later time, a character called the slayer, that, if we can do it, will have a amphistaff and the amphi-whip....

Try playing one of those mods with Jedi in it (say, Vader).

Imagine a Vong with an amphistaff instead of a lightsaber, and with a lot of health for the armor, but no ability to block shots, and with thud bugs for long range (like a blaster rifle) and Razor bugs for sniper weapon.

Just a few questions:
1)So do you plan to make a map for the ground battle on ithor?
2)Will jedi become a melee "grunt" to face off with the vong?

1) Yes, we deffinatly are, except for our own testing maps, this will be the first map we create

2) umm, no, might add this feature in for one or two maps, but at the moment, it's a no.... but we will have a beautiful jaina solo as a hero, and also a jacen solo, maybe even an Anikin Solo hero

With the release of Jabbas Palace we can really start going, I also hear that an un-official mesh extracter/importer is days away. We really need some coders and modelers. Join now before the rush. Register and post under recruitment.
