1. When in the saga will the game take place? Around Episode I untill VI? Or is it eternal?

2. Will it use a realistic 24hr or a more speeded up gameplay? B/C I sure do wanna see those sunrises/-dawns.

Hi Darth Maxx. Welcome! :D

For your first question, the game takes place between the first 2 movies (after the battle of Yavin and before the battle of Hoth).

The time line will not really progress with the movies. We will, in a way, be frozen in time.

I don't think I can answer your second question at this point in time.

I'm not sure about a real time day/night system or speeded up, but after seeing that celebrations II footage I don't really care....I just want to see sunrise and sunset

i thought that time had no isuue there.. that time was just the night period times.. but other than that.. i thought time was standing still..

Yeah, me thinks that time will be standing still too. But I think that, to reflect the impact of the GCW on the game, time will slowly pass. I really would not want to see that the garrison that you attacked 6734 times in one year with your PA, still exist while being completely surrounded by your PA 24/7, that would be very lame.

So the devs need to update the game regularly (sp) to keep the game realistic.

I dunno if my post makes any sense..but what the hell

I don't think time will be THAT frozen. There will surely be some progression of time in the game, but we will basically be stuck in the period between movies.

And well, about one minute in real world = one minute in game, I seriously doubt it. Expect some hour or two real time to be equal to a day ingame. This is just a speculation, but I would VERY surprised if you could only see one sunset each day (except for Tatooine, of course! :P )
