View Full Version : Co-op maps

On the issue of co-op maps, here's what I have in mind: OJP shall be the platform where you can relive battles as Jedi or mercenary against NPCs, in "Serious Sam" fashion. There's no limit to the timelines - it can take place during the Old Republic era, or New Republic era, or around the settings where Jedi Outcast and Jedi Academy take place

What I need now are two things: ideas for background settings and concept art/sketches (not very important though, as I can do these myself)

So far, I already have the following settings in mind:

Background:

We have received reports that Imperial troops are planning to launch an assault on the Jedi Academy on Yavin IV. A group of Jedi and mercenaries have been dispatched to the Death Star to slow down the assault, while another group is ordered to remain in the Academy to stop the imminent assault.

You are part of Blue Team - to stop Imperial troops from entering the Academy. They are coming in at full force, and have an army of Stormtroopers and Shadowtroopers at their disposal. You must hurry to the Academy's front doors, and defend it at all costs! There will be stationary guns there as we are expecting the stormtroopers to enter through the front doors. Also, we have acquired additional ammunitions from our Republic friends, which can be found in boxes found throughout the Academy. The fate of the Academy - and possibly the galaxy - rests in your hands!


Background:

We have received reports that Imperial troops are planning to launch an assault on the Jedi Academy on Yavin IV. A group of Jedi and mercenaries have been dispatched to the Death Star to slow down the assault (Blue Team), while another group is ordered to remain in the Academy to stop the imminent assault (Red Team).

You are part of Red Team - to prevent the deployment of the troops from the very heart of the Imperial base itself. There will be heavy resistance, so we are not expecting you to destroy the base as it will be an impossible task. Intel has reported that Hangars 1, 2 and 3 are less heavily guarded as compared to 4, 5 and 6. It will be suicide to enter the latter, so we just need you to destroy Hangars 1, 2 and 3. There is a panel in each hangar that allows all ships there to self-destruct. The code will be transmitted to all of you. Once you're in there, enter the code and escape the base! This mission is of utmost importance - whether the Academy falls or not is entirely in your hands!

Background:

One of our spies have reported the presence of a drug lord - a Hutt by the name of Glaarba - who possesses the blueprints of the Academy, and is going to auction it to the highest bidder. He is currently on Nar Shaddaa on a business trip, and will be staying there for quite a while. The auction will be held on Nar Shaddaa too. If enemy forces get hold of the blueprints, they could attack the Academy through its weak points. You, and other students and mercenaries, must make your way to Nar Shaddaa now and stop the transaction from taking place. However, be warned - smuggler activity has been shown to be more rampant recently, and security has been tightened. You may be attacked by both smugglers and security forces alike there, so approach the situation with stealth. Casualties must be minimized too. Glaarba also has a huge number of bodyguards around him, some of whom are famous assassins. Whatever it is, do not kill Glaarba - we want him alive as we need to extract some information out of him.

Background:

While on a blue milk run to Korriban, Kyle has accidentally stumbled on an important finding - a sacred artifact that was left uncovered for centuries - that could unbalance the Force. He has called for backup upon hearing that Imperial troops are also interested in the artifact too and are fast approaching Korriban. You're one of the few who will provide this backup. Do not let the Imperials get their hands on the artifact!

We don't have time to make seperate teams for CoOp.

Secondly, I don't think there was a jedi academy on Yavin 4 when the Death Star was around. :)

Not separate teams. They're 2 separate maps, but the event is the "same". Meaning let's say Max, hock and I play on the first map, then when objectives are complete, assuming the second map is part of the map cycle, then we will go to the second map

Sorry about the Death STar part. I meant to have "Imperial outpost"

Oh, ok. I misunderstood earlier, I thought you were suggesting similtanious battles.

o what have we here co-op story ideas well i got one
Background:

The Republic is at war with the Mandaloriens and it is not going well at all. Thankfully a lone faction of Jedi led by Jedi knight Reven has defied the order spurred by the genocide of the Cathar and is coming to help the republic as we desperately need it. Reven has decided to take the fight to the Mandaloriens and has sent a legion of Jedi generals and troops to take back the Mandalorien occupied planet.

You are in the legion of Jedi generals and republic soldiers and your job is to get a foot hold on Iridonia so that Reven can come in with more troops and take back the planet. Upon the landing of your drop ship you are to proceed to nave alpha and take out any Mandaloriens you encounter. At alpha take out the Mandilorion communications array and long range sensors to prevent further communication and to stop them from spotting our incoming fleet. Hold the base till the re-enforcements arrive to secure the facility.
well what do u think

UDM
12-19-2006, 08:02 PM
Looks good! Unfortunately I have no idea what Iridonia looks like =\

I've already drawn out the blueprints for 4 maps. I will finish a 5th one and then start on the editor

well according to wookieepedia
Primary terrain

Rocky Canyons, Acid Pools and Seas, some small normal temperate rain forests where most populations live. Some winds get up to 200 km per hour. so maby have them land in the canyon area and have them come in on swoops and in the forest are they have to get off because its to forested and have a city in the forest

UDM

A forested area sounds good. I'll look into that and work on a blueprint immediately

I like the idea of a mission showing Revan in battle before he turned.

Well UDM and I could probably do that. Somehow make a Revan model NPC to help. Unfortunately PCgamemods is down and it had all the good Revan models. :(

Hmmmm, hit me up on MSN tomorrow UDM, I might be able to help you. Infact I can probably map out all the work for you. I can leave texturing, events, shaders, etc. for you while I do the architecturing.

Thanks to Buffy our hope of making a Revan for a co-op map is now a reality.

Just gotta get the map now. :p

Btw, double post. BOOYAKASHA!

also if it helps i have the kotor mandalorion models and theres an ok skin of the republic soldier on jk3files.com and i was thinking so that we can face more than just gunners we put in mandalorions with vibroblades with limited force saber attack and defand so there are saber wierlders but not light saber wielders ;)

That would be a good idea. There is a good vibro blade model on JK3files.com, only problem is I don't know how to make that said NPC have what sort of weapon.

Anyway, best bet would be to PM UDM the models and let him handle that. I'm handling the architecturing of the maps. ;)

Cool stuff, that should save us on some effort

Hey I just had a fun idea for a final boss on one of these maps. I don't really care about the skin or model of the character as long as its cool, but give them this: http://jediknight2.filefront.com/file/Megasaber;49353 :D If you make it a dark atmosphere, and the players suddenly see them turn it on for the first time, they'll freak! LOL. Its fun to play around with against bots and will make the boss pretty hard I hope. Also, that wrist saber at JK2files is pretty cool too.

UDM get on MSN more often you j00b(jedi n00b). I'm thinking of a good map and I want your input. (Malachor 5).

We could make the final boss Mandalore. After all, wasn't he slain at Malachor? Could give him saber only. Say it is his "trophies" like Grievous.

Maybe, although if we do use that megasaber, it should probably be a very powerful looking jedi or sith using it since such a weapon would require great control.

Megasaber looks incredibly unrealistic though. I think we should aim for something that is canon to SW, yet maintain the fragfest level of fun

It is our time differences. :|

I get on when I wake up and just before I go to bed. Which means nil to you since you are probably not on on both times.

We gotta figure a neutral ground where we can both meet on good circumstances.
