I think it would be awesome if they had more civs like the rodians and Trandoshan. Whatever happened to the EWoks and jawas:ewok: :jawa :c3po:

I understand Jawas, Ewoks, Tradoshans and possibly Bothans, but those were independent races. The Rodians are already included as Imperial units, while the Mon Cals are probably Rebel units. :eek: . Just because an alien race exists doesn't mean they are independent.

while the Naboo, Trade Federation, Wookies, and Gunguns are limited to only one species the Rebels and Empire can represent many. (the bonthans are good spies in the book, maybe a good undeteceted scouting unit)

I have a feeling theres only going to be the six civs we know about in the game, but if the game does well enough(Why wouldn't it?? ;) ), more could always be in an xpack.

...don't rule out the possibilities of a 'hidden' civ... you could complete all campaigns and get that civ to play with, for instance... that would be the ultimate easter egg..

Hmm.......Sounds good, but how would they incorporate that into the multiplayer?

in AOK, you work with profiles.. so any profile that can select them, gets them...

Rodians won't be in the x-pack because they're the imperial bounty hunters.

I don't think there'll be Mon Cal units with the rebels, I still think they're the best option for an x-pack.

About the hidden civ, I don't like it , cause not everyone will be able to get that civ.

There won't be any other civs added, or a "secret civ". I believe this because it takes quite awhile to make a civilization's art set. Perhaps 30 buildings, 30-40 units, interface art, etc. That takes a lot of time.

If some people can pick a multiplayer civ and others can't, thats kind of unfair....

Not if they made right so that the other civs still had counters to its units.I hope they put one in that would make going through the campaigns a whole lot funner.

Create a secrete civ and not tell anyone. Just say easter egg on the box. :D

I personally would be impressed if it happened but I don't think it will. To much work and might delay the game.

I think they should just keep the ones they have.
Maybe in a xpack they will add more civs. But for now that probably covers everyone.;)

yes, i agree in that a secret civ is not a possibility in this game. there aren't that many rts games with secret civs as a bonus. matter of fact, i don't know an rts game with a secret civ.

the ewoks will be available in the editor, and i agree that if this game does well, which it should, they will add a few civs to an expansion pack. i think a cool civ to add would be the chiss and have their hero as grand admiral thrawn. i was reading star wars gamer last nite and read up on them. they sound far more interesting than i thought.

Admiral Odin: IT IS A LARGE POSSIBLILITY THAT THE THE TRADE FED IS NOT LIMITED TO ONE SPECIES (DROIDS ALTHOUGH THEY AREN'T SCIENTIFICALLY A SPECIES) . :mad: :mad: :mad: . WHAT HAPPENED TO THE NEIOMODIANS?:mad: :mad: :mad:

couldn't they add corsec and the corillian sector and hapes cluster because they are seperate organizations?

crazy_dog

Sorry to sound like a whiner :D but do you mean organisations in the sence of nations/civs or like World Wildlife Fund or something :confused: ?

i mean like civ and nations. they are completly different and could be added.

Yes, yes! The Chiss should be in the game! :thrawn2:

About the secret civ:
A secret civ would be really fun, but too much work. Perhaps the could have a secret batch of units in the editor, or a secret in which one unit from each civ is replaced by a different unit. That wouldn't be too hard to add. :D

Although, that secret civ idea is still pretty cool! I wouldn't mind it!

About the Secret Civ:
I think when one player has it unlocked it in multiplayer, it should automatically be availible to everyone. While in single player they can't use the civ agaisnt the cpu,ai.:ewok:

no doubt, a secret civ would be great, but i think they just didn't have enough time to do such a thing. however, just cross your fingers for a really awesome expansion pack....

Hopefully they will make an x-pansion in the future:band:

Sorry, bot possible, you can't send that much info across the net fast enough. If you could then you could play MP with only one person having the game, which would rock, but will not be happening. Plus, the developers wouldn't allow that coz some people wouldn't have to buy the game. Looks like we will indedd just have to wait for an x-pac.

Noghri!!!!:D
Hapan!!!!:D
or even a real Old Republic!!!!:eek:

The Noghri would be an awesome civ! The old republic wouldn't be very techinically advanced- it's OLD , right? And the Hapans would also be awesome ;)

Actually I'd think the Old Republic would be just as good as the rest. Technology degraded during the Emporers reign :)

Isn't the Naboo really part of the Old Republic. You could use the Naboo instead. I mean both civs will suck.

Darth_Rommel
08-24-2001, 03:41 PM
But... but... The Naboo have the STEADFAST! The Naboo will be just as good as all the other 'cos the game is (key word, children) balanced

I don't recall anyone at Corascant using the Panaka suit or any of the guards. Also the Old Rep. would have better Jedis (maybe even a 1 in ranking:D ) plus they would have better mechs, troops and fighters (maybe) Mechs and troops because the Naboo was a little bit on the pacifist side.:D

Paladin

If they ever include the Old Republic, their Jedi would be their only strengh. But will still be a very tough opponant but i will lead that up 2 the developers.:p

In the Tales of Jedi series and in other Pre-Empire notations, the Old Republic actually had pretty powerful troops. They had a Rocket Trooper that was similar to our Paratroopers. They also had the At-Pt at the end of the Old Republic (as was mentioned in the Thrawn trilogy). Though we know very little about their Air Forces, it is most likely safe to assume that they were pretty powerful.
