Boba Fett- would function the same way as the reb or imp scout but with a jetpack and no recon droid.
Dengar- would function the same way as a rebel vanguard.
Rodian or Transhodan- would be the basic trooper character with an automatic blaster like the rebels.
I'm not really sure what the pilot character would be but that's what I have come up with.
IG-88 is a cool character but I don't really know how that guy would walk around like the other characters, we never really saw how he walked in the movies. I think it is very doable, and it would be a fun mod to have. I know nothing about modding but if official tools were released I would be willing to help. I know there have been a lot of other posts about Bounty Hunter Factions, but this one establishes the specifics of each character. Feedback?

So there's multiple Boba Fetts, Dengars, and IG-88's running around? Yeah that makes sense...

A good point but then again not everyone cares about historical accuracy. Still, it may look strange. I suppose Boba Fett could be replaced by generic Mandalorian Mercenaries (Though by the era's you play in the Mandalorians are pretty much long gone) And IG-88 could be replace with a type of assasin droid or something. IMO a mercenary faction would probably work better than a bounty hunter faction. since merceanries could be more generic. Still It's an interesting Idea I would like to see fulfilled.

I had actaully thought about this a few weeks back, i made charts and some conceptual sketches, ill get the scetches up when i fix my scanner. Im not that big of a star wars freek but I did some research and here are some possibilities I came up with:

- Solider -
Rodian (Greedo)

- Heavy Artilary -
Assasin Droid (IG-88) p.s. play SOTE to see how the move

- Pilot -
Duro (I believe there are a couple in the mos eilsley cantina[Ep 4])
Trandoshan (Bossk)

- Sniper -
Ubese Tracker/Hunter (Boushh/ Leia [Ep 6]

-Unique Warrior-
Mandalorian (Fett)

- Hero -
Boba/Jango Fett (obviously)

It's not a good idea to make a Mandalorian class. 3/4 of the players will be only the Mandalorian no matter how underpowered you make him. Take it from the Jedi Academy's MovieBattles II mod - the only "bad guy" class used is the Mandalorian.

Here's my ideas:

Weequay Thug - Infantry
http://www.reichnation.com/uploads/weequay.jpg

- Blaster Rifle (generic blaster rifle like in Star Wars Bounty Hunter)
- BlasTech DL-18 Blaster Pistol (pistol used by Jabba's guards)
- 3 Thermal Detonators
- 2 Concussion Grenades

Klatooinian Brute - Heavy Weapons
http://red6.home.insightbb.com/Aliens/Jabba/kithaba.jpg

- Merr-Sonn HH-15 Missile Launcher (Rebel's missile launcher)
- BlasTech DL-18 Blaster Pistol
- 3 Thermal Detonators
- 4 Mines

Nikto Mechanic - Pilot

- BlasTech DL-18 Blaster Pistol
- 3 Thermal Detonators
- Fusioncutter

Rodian Hunter (I pick Rodian for the sniper because in Jedi Outcast/Academy they have Rodians as snipers) - Scout
http://massassi.yavin4.com/sw_img/e4eisl21.jpg

- BlasTech E-17d Sniper Rifle (Rebel's sniper rifle)
- BlasTech DL-18 Blaster Pistol
- 3 Thermal Detonators

Mercenary Smuggler - Unique

- BlasTech DL-44 Heavy Blaster Pistol (commando pistol)
- 6 Thermal Detonators
- 5 Health & Ammo Packs
- Stormtrooper/Clone Trooper Disguise (old Rebel Disguise Kit)

Aurra Sing - Hero NPC

- Lightsaber (red blade)

Possibly, but, this illustration on StarWars.com shows her fighting with a green one...

Red is the color of a Sith's lightsaber. Sing isn't a Sith, but a renegade Jedi.

ok, cos its just that i played that star wars game on gameboy advanced, something droid factory where u play as multiple people and u have to destroy the cis factory that makes the new assasin droids. in that game theres a level where u face aurra sing as anakin, and she is using a red lightsaber. just a thought tho. and wasnt dooku a renegade jedi at first? just another thought.

I've also been seeing some other references of her with a red lightsaber... so yeah, you're right. *Edits post*

maybe that picture u have of her with a green saber is because she had just turned evil and hadnt had time to place the red colour crystal instead of the green one, like i doubt whether anakin's saber immedatley turns red as soon as he turns evil in episode 3 i bet hes evil and using a blue saber for a little while. maybe this is the case
