I was looking at the PC screens for KOTOR 2 recently, and noticed the main character in the cockpit of the Ebon Hawk, and through the windows was a bunch of blue stuff which shows they're in hyperspace. The graphics were in-game, not cutscene.
I read this one article, though, which said one of the new mini-games is blasting sith troopers with a turret when they try to board the Ebon Hawk.

I'll believe that when I see it. Cool idea, though. I'd much rather be at the hatch cutting them down when they came in. If a blaster rifle does X damage to a sentient, what would a turret of a ship do?! Can you say "closed casket"?

You can forget the turret and fight them on the ship:tie: :vsd: :x-wing:

I think be able to get in a dog fight in a astriod feild would rock

I think a Call of Duty-esque B17 mission is a more realistic suposition and dream :)

I wouldn't want them to spend too much time on developing a complicated mini-game.

Due to the fact OE seems to be leaving out a lot of really cool stuff, like most recently the different Lightsaber hilts, I don't see them doing a new mini-game of any kind.

now that sounds cool. :D

wish they would have added some other stuff, though. the idea lukeiamyourdad presented would have been one heck of a cool addition. :(

T3-M4 has a larger role involving the ship. He has to repair it at some point. He also seems to be a mobile work bench... Can he upgrade the ship?! That'd be cool... If the enemies get harder, you get better weapons, right?

Maybe you could buy weapons, armor platings or new shield or hyperspace generators for the Ebon Hawk.

I don't think it can happen but it would be really nice :D

ok i know that t3 has to repair the ebon hawke as part of the optional tutorial

and yes i have read a bit about him and he is referred to as a mobile wrokbench but they say that he'll be able to take items and break them down into items wich can be used to upgrade others

i am unsure as to wether in the middle of the street you can just hand t3 your lightsaber for him to upgrade but i hope they do as that is better than trying to find your next workbench lol

I'm pretty sure the upgrading is up to you, because it requires skill. If the droid could do it for you, every class jedi could have a pwning saber. Seem like the Sentinals and watchmen are going to have the best ones, because they have the most skill points... Hmmm... They may have adjusted that as well...

Ah, now that old droid has more things to do. I rarely use that droid despite the fact that he has special mechanical skills.

i was using lightsabers as an example because t3 has been dubbed the mobile workbench

i assume that ur pc will still create but, t3 will provide the tools to do so

I have a feeling that the Hawk won't survive the game, somehow.

You got that feeling, too?! OMG!!! Get out of my head!! It seemed like the most over powered "item" and most under used in KotOR I. Getting destroyed could make thing more interesting... Say it with me..."Ebon Turtle"!!

I sure don't. I think, if theres a K3, it's going to be like the droids (well T3 atleast) & be 1 of the constants through this series.

*Edit* That is, unless T3 meets a grizly end in TSL & my whole theory goes out the window. ;)

I agree with FiEND, the Ebon Hawk is like the Millenuim Falcon of KOTOR it should see us through the whole series. (I hope there is going to be a KOTOR 3)

:D

i agree with Redhawke who is agreeing with fiend

oh no now i'm beggining to sound like Redhawke

well i'm not sure thats a bad thing

but yeah i do think the ebon hawke will be a constant in the games as we all know k3 is already being made and with any luck there'll be a k4 ,5 ,6 ,7 ,8 ,9.......... and the ebon hawk could well become the trademark of the series, a bit like kyle in the jedi knight series mind you i do hope that T3 and HK become the R2 and 3PO of kotor :D

That wouldn't effect the story in the least... lest we forget Darth Vader messing-up R2-D2 on the back of Luke's X-Wing in the Death Star trench, he was repaired and all was OK, so if T3-M4 gets fried, with the current damaging the droids precident in Star Wars, he can easily be fixed. :D

Yeah, it was just an old rumor that jumped in my head.

I hope as well.

T3 has the same likeness of R2, but Hk is out of the line because he is an assasin droid and his system has too many ancient mechanical concept.

There wasn't a lot of interaction between T3 and HK anyway. The source of comedy was HK and not both. I hope that if they both appear in KOTOR II they'll really turn into the old pair of droids we've come to love.

Aleggy

i have to agree that there wasnt enough interaction between t3 and hk, hk was an assasination droid but he was also an interperator but you didnt see him interperate when t3 beeps once i really hope they do something about that in tsl if hk is in it

but i heard that there is a gray version of hk called hk-50 in tsl, if this is a upgraded version of hk-47 i dont know

r u saying that his spoiler thing is a theory?

but anywayz, yep a customizable option for the Ebon Hawk would be fully sic.

and maybe for the characters this time they could make it so you can not just select the head, but the entire body and features.

example: selecting different hair, eyes, nose, mouth, ears, skin colour and different body shapes.

make it feel as if you can customize this CP down to the bone.

a truly satisfying virtual expirience.

i agree that it would be great to be able to choose your face and then choose the facial hair and hair cut etc etc but from what i've heard there will be more heads but i dont think the faces are going to be customizable :mad:

You mean kind of like they had it in Neverwinter Nights in the PC appearance section, something like that would have been cool for KOTOR... oh well, a lost opportunity.

I would have liked it if you could have chosen your character's head, legs,arms, and clothing, but I wouldn't want to choose my character's nose, or hair color, etc.
I can see why lucasarts did that. Maybe they thought people would get upset if they made a cruddy face, and they would send hate mail.
