Star Wars: Rogue Squadron 3D Editor Request
Please read it, sign it and spread this around: http://www.petitiononline.com/swrs3d/
Dear LucasArts and Factor 5,

We are a group of enthusiastic fans of your great PC platform computer game, Star Wars: Rogue Squadron 3D. For more than ten years this game, which became a Star Wars arcade game classics, was a source of inspiration for many and many Star Wars fans. But unlike some other Star Wars games there is not any tool available which would let fan community to expand the game by developing additional levels and modifications.

As it is known Factor5 used its in-house level editor L3D to design game levels for Rogue Squadron and Rogue Leader. In fact this tool is not used anymore for any other games because it is out-of-date by now.

Therefore we ask you to release freely the Star Wars: Rogue Squadron 3D level editor. It would allow us to use our creativity to revive the game and expand it with fantastic add-ons. The editor would also serve as a new item in the arsenal of all those enthusiastic fans of Star Wars games.

We are very much looking forward for your kind and helpful decision

Going to move this to the "SW Games" forum, as this has nothing to do with the X-Wing series.

Thanks, Wildstar, the reason why I posted it in Game Editing was that it is related to game editing and X-Wing series fans might be interested in joining the petition. Who knows maybe they will be designing new Rogue Squadron levels some day...

Hey, CrisG, thanks for your interest in the Petition. Could you please spread the word about it and call your networks to sign it. What I plan is to send an article about it to some online gaming magazine e.g. IGN.com? What do you think?

Unbelieveable, but PetitionOnline.com is under attack. It is confirmed by Kevin Matthews of Artifice, Inc:

We do know, as I'm sorry to say, that PetitionOnline has been inaccessible since Friday morning, making this already our worst outage in nearly ten years of petition hosting, and it is still ongoing. A basic discussion of the DDoS attack being waged against us is posted here: http://www.designcommunity.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=28380 Even though our servers are and have been running fine, and the data on them is safe, they remain temporarily unreachable over the Internet due to this attack.

PetitionOnline.com is back, up and running! We are back with 85 signatures already.

It is now 90 people! 90, who signed our Star Wars: Rogue Squadron 3D Editor Request Petition! http://www.petitiononline.com/mod_perl/signed.cgi?swrs3d&1

Could somebody help with contacting LucasArts, RIP Factor5 and Rogue Squadron developer team members? We need to join forces to win!

The petition asking LucasArts and Factor 5 to make the Star Wars: Rogue Squadron 3D level editor available to the fan community has been started in March. More than 100 people, mostly expressing their interest in being involved in developing new levels, signed it. There were a former Rogue Squadron development team member and an author of a sci-fi book, many enthusiastic gamers, experienced modders and computer science students. Unfortunately after sending emails to LucasArts and former Factor 5 management twice we did not get any response.

Still determined to continue with the petition, it seems that we will not be able to get the level editor soon. So here is a call for joining forces to develop Star Wars: Rogue Squadron 3D Editor, call for forming the Team to all interested modders, amateur level designers, computer science students and everybody who can contribute. If you are interested in taking this challenge please post a comment. Let us do it ourselves!

Thanks to everybody for supporting the Star Wars: Rogue Squadron 3D Editor Request petition. We have got 113 signatures already.

Another new is that recently I was in contact with a game developer from White Harvest regarding our Star Wars: Rogue Squadron 3D Editor Request petition. Here is what that person said about Rogue Squadron: "...LucasArts owns all rights, assets and tools to all Rogue Squadron games, and are the only ones who can authorize this. I'm glad that you're still enjoying the old Rogue Squadron,... but I doubt that anybody will ever release the tools. It's actually quite a bit of work, and the interest isn't big enough (not unless the number of petitioners reaches 5 or 6 digits). Regardless, the request would most likely have to go through LEC."
