Caution: possible book spoiler for those that haven't read the book


Ok first off i decided i would finally sit down and start reading the Zahn trilogy..

after i finished the first book it hit me that JediOutcast would be perfect to do an Heir to the Empire single player MOD.. complete with cutscenes and story and what not..

This is the idea i had..


Tell the Hier to the Empire story from all the different character's POV just like the story does..

obviously for it to be fun the objects of levels would have to be ---- stretched --- a little.


Examples:


at Myrkr, luke has to find a power source to open the door, then a key to unlock R2D2.

at the Sluis Van attack, Lando has to find his Slave Transmitter.


At Kyrssykk ( sp?) Chewbacca (Or Rlarr sp?) must escort Leia to the hide out..

it could even include Pelleon missions ( or grand admiral Thrawn)..



this is obviously a monster undertaking.. i figure about 15 levels. so i thought i would just get the feeling of the community on what they thought. My goal of this would not be so much a game as JediOutcast is but more of telling the story and being able to adventure through the book. The nice thing is half the models are alread in the game ( Luke, Lando, Mon Mothma).. and some of the other characters can be made by editing existing models (Leia, Mara jade, Kardde, Thrawn, Pelleon, the Nhigl sp?).. the only one i can forsee needing a new model would be Chewbacca and C3PO. the LadyLuck is already in the game as well..

anyways what do you think?

Also.. please don't discuss legality issues here, if anything this would be something i would do for myself.

Just a couple of things...I think your idea is AWESOME!!!! though it would be a lot of work (C-3PO models are already in the game lol).

Just wanted to show my support as a hardcore Outcast and Zahn and Star Wars Fan =)

aye this is just how I thought it should be done- playing as multiple characters. I could probobly help out as a mapper if the tools ever get released
