View Full Version : [WIP] Planet VII

07-15-2007, 03:40 PM
I am about to start a Project which will probably take at least the whole summer holidays. It is called Project: Planet VII and it is a new module/planet that I shall be creating. I shall be using the following modules:

Taris - South Appartments [as Planet VII - Appartments]
Taris - Hidden Bek Base [as Planet VII - Old Republic Base]
Taris - Davik's Estate [as Planet VII - Czerka Base]
Manaan - Docking Zone [as Planet VII - Landing Pad]
Endar Spire - Command Module [as Planet VII - ?]
Endar Spire - Starboard Section [as Planet VII - ?]

I have an idea for the main background information about Planet VII, but I'm not sure about a main plot. Here is the background information:

Planet VII is a former Secret Republic Base that was deserted after ruthless bombing during the Jedi Civil War by Malak. Lifeless and Deserted, the Planet was eventually inhabited by Czerka and they have brought life back to the planet. It has also become a ground for Exchange thugs and bounty hunters to operate.

I'd also like to assemble a team containing the following. If you are interested then PM me to get things going. It would be useful if you have MSN or Yahoo, preferably MSN, if you wish to join up. It's only optional, so don't worry if you don't. Anyway, I need the following:

Scripting [VITAL!]: I'll probably need just the one scripter, but I don't mind. I'm not the best so help is appreciated. So I need one or more scripter/s, preferably very good or higher, although good is still good.
Skinning [VITAL!]: See above, replacing script with skin.
Voice-Overs [Preferable]: Need a male and a female for respective voice-overs [or just 1 who is good at both genders], though once a microphone is bought I can add some.
Modeling [VITAL!]: Probably need 1 modeler, as I am incapable myself
Lip-Synching [Preferable]: If you can do it then PM me. 2 needed.
Beta-Testing [On-Hold - VITAL!]: I'll need 4 Beta Testers but don't commit yet, it will take ages.
Dialogue [Optional]: This will require 2 people; 1 to help with ideas for Dialogue and 1 to do things that I can't.
Module Editing [Optional]: Anyone who is very good and experienced at Module Editing, either with or without the KOTOR Tool Module Editor, will be needed for this.
Plot [Preferable]: I need someone who can come up with a good plot that fits in with the background information to help me out on this.
Video Recording [VITAL!]: Need someone who can make a video of some of the footage once ready to put on youtube. Also useful if they can add some nice calm Star Wars music to it.

I'll admit that the team seems a bit big but I am hoping to make it a HUGE mod that won't get old. Also, if anyone can come up with a better name than Planet VII then post it here for a wee competition. The winner will, if they want, have the Czerka boss on the planet named after them!
If you would like to be in this mod then PM me with the following details:
Name of Character:
Friendly or Hostile?:
Be quick though, it's first come first serve and there are only 10 places up for grabs!
If you wish to become art of the team then just PM me. There is no template,just send me links to some of your best/favourite work. You will most likely be accepted, you will only be rejected if there is no more space left in the team.

Thank you.

Team so far:

Video Recording:

I can do dialogue and plot advising. for coming up with the basic plot outline, I would need a little time to do so, 1/2 a day at least, a day and a half at most.

I have an idea for a name; Arcan-hábor, a shortening and play on the french and hungarian words 'secret' and 'war', respectively. Reasoning for this name is because of the planetary background description as a secret warbase for the Republic.

Maybe later, I'll pitch a second name that would be a Czerka name (based on the fact that they found it abandoned and 'claimed' it as their own, not unlike the way they claimed Kashyyyk.)

Does the plot need to be a majority of before or after the Leviathan, or maybe dabble in some elements of both?

I think Plot wise we could do an after ending mod?Basically whatever allignment you are and whatever fate you choose you use the planet to either A.Ressurect the Republic on that Planet or B.Unite the Sith on that Planet..We could probably add a new Star Map?The Vision Part would be Hard unless we could do a Giant Greenhouse basically using Kashyyyk's Shadowland area..Also I could work with Masaru plot wise.How including a new ship in it too?A reskin of the Ebon Hawk and New name for it.

Hrm...An after ending mod? I may be able to do that, but I'd rather do something during the story. Either way, it's up to Simon.

I was also thinking about dropping some of the original party characters as well in exchange for plot related characters, or maybe even ones of our own (depening on who it is we drop and how many if we choose to do that).

Also, do you have an instant messenger? if you have one and could PM one my way, I think it would be convenient for refining the plot in the future. In the meantime, I'll use the rest of the day to come up with an outline for Planet VII.

Thanks to you guys who have helped out with ideas so far. I still need more team members to get it done, but I am hopefully going to have completed modifying the Czerka base, Old Republic base and the Apartments. The apartments should be done by the end of today, but the scripting may be a little too complex for me to do. I have already created one character [Sid Vicious] that I need skinners to base off the real Sid Vicious [bassist of the Sex Pistols, for those who don't know].

Also, this mod shall be during the game time. I will also add a few [2 or 3] new recruitable characters [which are optional] which would replace Juhani, T3-M4 and probably Mission [due to the fact that I consider these three useless and uninteresting. Well, Mission is vaguely useful but still boring]. Lord_Fear had talked to me about making it part of Mindtwistah's new project but me and Twistah decided against it, for he already has used all planet spaces. I am part of that team as well and we are both helping each other out.
