OK this is the first poll on this board and its a predictable peace of SWGBG slop.

I already voted for Ewoks (Only because it would be INTERESTING) but my other choice would be Smugglers

Hiya Clefo.

I vote for the mon cals

The Mon Cals would be cool...but their technology is already present in the Rebellion civilization. The Vong all the way for me. The only thing is I'm afraid of how bad they would crush the Gungans...and every other civilization for that matter.

I voted for Bounty Hunters, although I have to say, I'm not sure exactly how this would work, as surely the whole idea of Bounty Hunters is that it's every man for himself?

Swoosh

They might crush the Gungans, and maybe the Wookiees, and probably the Trade Federation, since they out number them, but the thing about the Vong, is that they're not that powerful, it's just that the New Republic's government is filled with sleazebags, who care only about their own profit, and they don't think that taking action is profitable, take Borsk Fey'lya for example. If the Empire were still in control of the Galaxy, the Vong threat would probably already be wiped out, I mean look at what the Empire has: at least ten's of Millions of capital ships, Billions of star fighters, Death Stars, the Sun Crusher, World Devastators, etc...

Yeah, if the New Republic still had Leia as Chief of State they would probably be at least stopped or slowed greatly. Then they could make the final push to victory. The Empire would probably just crush them, but you never know.

The New Republic is a Corrupt Beauracracy, but thats off topic.

Tie Guy
07-28-2001, 10:11 PM
Yeah, to get back on topic, i think that the Hutts would be a cool civilization. They could have teh battles when they took over their homeworld of Nal Hutta, and then moved into the entire area of systems.

How about the blue skin fellows. YOu know, the Thrawn species? There are two books which they were included in. They mostly live in the Outer Rim though

Tie Guy

Aren't they called the Chiss? They would be cool, and they could fight with the Rebels AND teh Empire, to remain independent.

Evaders99

I think the Chiss are off-limits, that's the impression I get from different sources. Lucas is probably keeping his options open, for more material after NJO.

either way, I doubt they could introduce that many new races in there, but I don't know. Galaxies introduced the Zabrak at any rate...

Tie Guy
07-29-2001, 12:11 AM
Why couldn't they release that many races? They could just say that it was before the movies and make up some story line.

Compa_Mighty

I think the name's not important. I've posted this before, but I'd like Mon Calamari, Tusken raiders, Jawas and Ewoks (in that order)

I think the Chiss will play a major part near the end of the NJO, that would explain why they are off limits.

The other thing is, up until the Hand of Thrawn books, hardly anyone knew the Chiss existed.

They have also only had 2 Chiss ships so far.

I think maybe a Chiss Jedi/Dark Jedi/Sith would be very deadly.

Anyway, back to the topic, im voting for the Yuuzhan Vong.

Tie Guy

Yeah, it did only talk about two ship, the "clew-craft" fighter and the other fighter they had, or were they the same thing? I don't think so.

Still, they could make a bunch up and give them all blue lasers. The storyline could be how they fought against thrawn when he came out there. That way, it would be before the books.

Mon Cal for sure!! With Admiral Ackbar as the hero... It would be easy to put campaign missions for them to.. I want to be able to play on their world as well!!

Tie Guy
07-29-2001, 06:54 PM
Yes, the campaign could just be the defense of their world from the empire. It would have a lot of land AND sea battels.

Clefo
07-29-2001, 06:56 PM
Heh maybe a neutral creature would be that thingy on Mon Calamari that eats people, forgot what its called...

Tie Guy
07-29-2001, 07:13 PM
Hmm, kinda like in Dune, eh? That would be pretty neat to see.

Wedge
07-29-2001, 08:52 PM
I Think Mon Cal and Quarran would be cool and being able to fight on Mon Calimari with hostile Krakken would also be cool especially if they had maybe a Seabattle mode just for Mon Cal and Quarren focussing on Sea Units, Underwater Bases, Units and Combat and other cool stuff like that.

Tie Guy
07-29-2001, 11:54 PM
That would definately be cool, but probably hard to due without making an entirely new game. Maybe they could include the Quarren and Mon Cals as one race against the Empire.

I still think if an expansion were to come out, it should include 6 different civilizations... that way people w/the expansion can play up to 12 ;)

Sure it's a lot more artwork to do, but gameplay wouldn't have to be redesigned agian.

FlyBOy
07-30-2001, 01:47 AM
Trandoshans would be cool to play, the sworn arche enemies of the Wookies

Windrider
07-30-2001, 05:14 AM
Gotta be the Vong! Warriors, slaves, skips and giant walking bladder flamthrowers! Plus we need more visialization for the Vong since they are the conflict in NJO!

Tie Guy
07-30-2001, 04:53 PM
Yeah.....

but Zero, i meant that it would be hard to come up with 6 workable civs, not that the art would be too hard.

Darth_Rommel
07-30-2001, 04:55 PM
Yep

i'd pick Vong if i had to vote a few days back, but i'm thinking about bounty hunters now...
a lot of their ships are known..
backstory is in the bounty hunter-books..
lots of different units..

it's perfect !

A gangster team. Uses monsters instead of mechs, build the sarlac (sp?) pit for a defensive structure, have nasty pig troopers with axes. 'Twood be cool, no?

Compa_Mighty
08-02-2001, 03:21 PM
There are already bounty hunters in the game. They won't make them a civ.

I'd like the Vong and The Mon Calamari

Yeah and the Mon Cal's are part of the rebels so they won't make them a civi ;)

Compa_Mighty
08-02-2001, 03:30 PM
Have you seen or heard of Mon Cals in the game?

Wookies are part of the rebels too.

No, I haven't seen any in the game.

But have you seen any wookiees in the rebels? Besides chewie?

Paragon_Leon

Goonius - what you describe sound like Jabba's gang, instead of using skiffs and stuff. it would be great though.

i really wonder what people see in a Mon Cal civ. True - you can make up units and buildings, but in their case, you'd have to make up everything, since you only know about Ackbar and a huge cruiser that is too big to use in the game..

Swor
08-02-2001, 05:16 PM
Why not something like Pirates a mixed civ of mercenaries and smugglers?

Paragon_Leon
08-02-2001, 05:18 PM
that would be nice. you'd get a 'wretched hive of scum & villainy' in the game !!
:D

yeah, and they'd be from compton,ca. according to kobi durant, right leon?

i'm sorry. i'm really at a loss about what you're saying.

Tie Guy
08-02-2001, 05:42 PM
But who would that civ fight, the gangsters that is.

Paragon_Leon
08-02-2001, 05:49 PM
everybody !
they would do raids just to create a mess, plunder or do it because they were paid to do it by another civ.

wouldn't that be great, that such a group could be bribed into attacking another civ ??
