What multiplayer alien models would you like to choose from when creating your multiplayer character?

Here's my list:

Human
Wookie
Mon Calimari
Ithorian
Rodian
Twi'lek
Sullustan
Talz
Gotal
Gamorean
Quaren
Deveronian
Aqualish


There are probably more, but off the top of my head, these are the first that come to mind.

In addition to a vast array of alien skins, it would be cool if they all had different advantages and disadvantages. For example, a Twi'lek might be quicker and more agile than a Gamorean, but a Gamorean would be very strong in melee combat and could take more damage before dying.

What do you think?

Maybe a yoda/yaddle-spieces alien. Whatever that spieces may be!

Ya, that's a good one. In fact, all the aliens on the Jedi Council would be good multiplayer skins. Heck, all the aliens in the Mos Eisley Cantina and in Jabba's throne room would be good ones as well.

The Shivan - that's one I forgot that would be good. Looks like a big elephant head. Also the Kubaz...isn't that Garindan's species?

Forget the Kubaz, let's see some Cubans!

I would say that I don't mean to offend anyone, but then again, isn't the internet censored in Cuba?

I also think it would be cool if there were a large variety of War Droid skins to choose from. Not the lame battle droids from TPM, but more lethal, like the Destroyer Droids, or IG-88 and 4-LOM. Or the War Droids from the Dark Empire series.

I bet we could find a few people who wouldn't mind blowing up some Gonk droids ;)

Look! I warned you guys to watch out. I've got some really sharp corners so beware.

Well, I wasn't referring to myself. But I happen to know of at least one member who is quite vocal about his dislike of Gonk Droids ;)

All the skin ideas are great. I would keep the collision model and movement the same though, no matter the character model. To keep everyone on the same playing field.

I'd like to see bounty hunter/rogue type skins.

Whipids

Gungans(with many, many, sadistic dying animations :D )

Quermian
Shivastien

I've got two words for you...

Battling Rancors.

Dugs! Nothing would be cooler than Jedi who carry their lightsabers in their feet! :D

Vagabond

Hmmm, I'm not sure that playing a Rancor would be a good MP skin. You'd be huge, and probably couldn't use any weapons. Although, on second thought, using your big claws and teeth as weapons, maybe that would be fun ;)

I think it's retarded that in games like this they have a human modle. it says right at the start of the movies that it's far far away, no humans should be in the game. now I know what your all thinking "then what about the people that seem to be human", well han was a corilion (I cant spell it, and it never said what the rest of the so called "human's" were. I think itr would be cool to actualy see some real humans in the game with a belt fed big M60 or something like that, they could corner the market on earth "spice" hehehehe

Wampas! Now they would be cool! Although I doubt they are intelligent enough (they are actually pretty smart) to use weapons. I'm not sure if their hands can hold guns.

I don't actually recognise any of those names some of you have mentioned. Are they EU territory?

I wouldn't be that bothered as long as they have continuity with each skin. So if a rodian gets hit he makes a rodian noise, not some Kyle Katarn noise a la MOTS.

And ensuring the Darth Vader skin actually resembles him, having him wheezing everywhere would be good as well. :)

LOL! I agree, wards. It was always so silly to see the Darth Vader skin in JK/MotS, because he was so short. He reminded me more of Dark Helmet from Spaceballs ;)

It be pretty cool to be in a dark corridor with low health and cheap gun and then hear the wheezing of Vader approaching.

Oh, the Verpine too, they're cool - insect guys from the Roche asteroid field. They're the ones who created the B-Wing, you know.

Ice Man
06-27-2001, 11:31 PM
Oh yeah, Verpine. I think I remember reading the name somewhere in a SW novel.

Heck, you all forgot some species, and they're mentioned so often:

Ishi-Tib
Droids ( R2-D2, C-3PO, LX-892, EV-9D9, etc. )
Tusken Raiders ( A.K.A. : The sand
people )
Banthas (Just a joke)


:D

Would anyone be interested in playing as a Jawa?

wardz
06-28-2001, 04:40 PM
hey V, which one is a Jawa? Aer they the ones who sell the droids in ANH?

As long as there is a good mix of people\skins I will be happy, so that us Jedi can have all the trimmings as far as saber battles are concerned and other classes that pick the saber up can only have the standard swing.

Having well done professionally made skins makes people want to play it even more. I remember the first time playing MOTS MP and seeing Vader and Luke and thinking WOW! But then it is just a let down when you play because they were crap, the noises were the same whatever and Darth was a short ass.

I wish that each character had a slight variation in gameplay, nothing too serious, even if it means they hold their saber differently when running or having some better animations when you pause for a while. - It makes all the difference.

Jawas are cool!!!!

Vagabond
06-28-2001, 04:59 PM
Jawas would actually have a slight advantage since they are smaller skins. Maybe to compensate, they would have lower armor and less health.

So the new ones we have are:

Jawa
Bith
Verpine
Defel (Wraith)


Defels would be interesting since they're virtually transparent and difficult to see. To balance this ability, maybe they wouldn't be allowed to use any mechanical weapons, but have formidable physical weapons, like claws, fangs and strength.
