View Full Version : Why is Jorran so important!?

This might just be me, but I have always wondered about this. It doesn't make any sense.

Remember that guy down in the Enclave Sublevel, the guy who was missing from the salvaging party outside, and who sold Suulru a defective moisture vaporator? Well, does anybody know why he was good enough to rank a totally unique face (the guy has grey hair, with a long beard and wrinkles) that you never see anywhere else, and unique clothing?! His clothing is some kind of varient on other clothing, but all grey, and quite a bit different.

So, if anybody knows... WHY???

Because the devs are sick and twisted.

Seriously, I don't know. I never thought about it, really. Great, now I'ts gonna be bugging me...

Iconic programming ticks me off. I wish they could make every character, no matter how insignificant, have a unique face, but that's not gonna happen. It's too complicated.

IIRC all the characters you have to meet have unique faces.

Yes, but I mean every character. Even the little people who are just there for background. Aliens... ok, they can be iconic.

That would be nice, but it would be...extreme...on behalf of the devs. I mean, that's a lot of different heads to model. At least the clothing was a little more varied in TSL.

I know it's way too much to hope for, but hey: I can dream, can't I?

Does anyone have an answer? Or are you all going to start debating about whether the devs can make every single head unique? :xp: j/k :D

Well, as for that, I agree with Skye. Too much work.

Maybe they had more planned for Jorran and decided after they made the character that they didn't need/want him as much in the storyline as they thought. Plus, you decide his ultimate fate in some dialog, so I guess he ranks a bit above plain old generic models.

You know, he might be good for an old Jedi Master. Well, on second thought, maybe he's a bit old compared to the others...

That's another possibility. He may have been intended for a totally different part origionally.

They definitely can vary the heads more, but as for Jorran, I guess they just felt like it. Some characters are special, some aren't.
