They better put in Gerrard V and Fest.

Tie Guy

Hmm, urban operations, that would be fun. I don't know bout fest though, they already have hoth i think. They'll most likely have coruscant, Tatooine, hoth, naboo, endor, Kashyyyk, maybe yavin, and hopefully a few others.

I think Tie Guy listed them all...

Space Platforms, I think I read something about that...

They do have Tatooine? That's good. I haven't seen any desert screenshots, though. :jawa

Tie Guy
07-29-2001, 06:14 PM
Really, where, i'd like to read it?

BTW, i didn't list all the ones from RS, those are Tatooine, Fest, Hoth, Death Star, Kile II, Gerrard V, fest, Balmorra, Barkhesh, Kessel, Taloraan, Loranar, Chorax, Sullust, Thyferra, Chandrilla, Mon Calamari, and Corellia. I think that's it.

Yeah, you can see one in one of the screenshots.

Tie Guy
07-29-2001, 07:05 PM
Oh really, thanks. *runs of to go look at screenshots*

Clefo
07-29-2001, 07:25 PM
It was the first Gamespot preview.....

Tie Guy
07-29-2001, 07:39 PM
Yeah, i saw it, it's cool. They have a huge group of soldiers, but how will they get to the enemy, and how are they breathing in the vaccuum of space?

Clefo

1. Probably a transport unit

2. Its a game, you should really just relax

Tie Guy
07-29-2001, 08:00 PM
Relax?!? RELAX?!? ok.

I' m really not that worked up about it. Sometimes it is hard to epress something like that in text without over or under stating it. It is going to be a great game though.

I knew that that was probably the answer, but teh reason i asked was that i hate it when you have to use transports to move troops. It's such a pain to get them all inside and then unloaded before the enemy totally destroys you.

NOTE: the screenshots posted at Gamespot seem to be from the older version of GB. Back when the AT-AT was smaller then a stromtrooper. So don't worry.

Two fridays ago LEC released screenshots featuring the new units size and mentioned the art departement has completed everything. But from the newscreenshots they didn't show any air units nor transport I think.

So dont worry people. Its LEC after all. They promissed no more Episode1 type of games (formely known as rushed games)

Tie Guy
07-29-2001, 08:59 PM
Ok, good, i was hoping they would change the air units. *goes and looks at new screenshots* You're right, the scaling is better on the new ones. Thanks.

Has anyone noticed that in those screenshots, the Y-Wings seem to have 4 engines?

I think it will just be grass, forest, snow, desert, rock, swamp, urban, space, water and space platform terrain rather than each planet having its own tile set like Force Commander did.

Worf

Tie Guy
07-29-2001, 11:06 PM
Yes! That's part of of whati'm saying. The ships are poorly designed, but hopefully they've changed that already.

Wedge
07-29-2001, 11:17 PM
I think they should have Balmorra and a big battle in the factorey area.

Tie Guy
07-29-2001, 11:52 PM
Yeah, a Rebel raid on an Imperial AT-AT and AT-ST factory. That would be a great mission. Maybe i'll make one if that isn't included already.

Windrider

There is an attack on a :atat: base in FC. TheJackal answered the question I had about them changing unit sizes. But I think they should still be bigger. What do you think? Vote at my poll.

Darth_Rommel

Poll young misspeller poll

Clefo

Its the intrnet youre not suppsed too spel rit here

Darth_Rommel
07-30-2001, 04:37 PM
Well I care a great deal about punctuation and such

Tie Guy
07-30-2001, 04:48 PM
Yeah, the occasional typos are fine, but you should try to spell everything right...if you can. :D

Darth_Rommel
07-30-2001, 04:49 PM
I agree

Windrider
07-30-2001, 04:56 PM
Geez, you guys can be harsh. :mad: It fixed it ok! It was like 3:00 AM. :o

Darth_Rommel
07-30-2001, 04:57 PM
:o I feel bad now :(

Tie Guy
07-30-2001, 05:01 PM
What? I don't see anything offensiv in either of our posts. Sorry if it came out that way.

Darth_Rommel
07-30-2001, 05:05 PM
Ya see he's grumpy, 'cos he was up at 3:00 am, posting messsages

Nothing wrong with an occasional typo eh?

Ummm what was this topic aboot?

Windrider
07-30-2001, 05:09 PM
Don't feel bad ;) It's just I surf SW websites half awake at 3 AM so errors are common. I usually use word but thats only for larger posts. And I'm not so young I'm 27! :)

Darth_Rommel
07-30-2001, 05:09 PM
I can't remember

Tie Guy
07-30-2001, 05:10 PM
Hey Rom, that was a typo, sorry, i guess i type to fast sometimes.

BTW, this topic was called "Which planets will the be in battlegrounds?"

Darth_Rommel
07-30-2001, 05:12 PM
Apology accepted... :vadar: but don't let it happen again

Darth_Rommel
07-30-2001, 05:13 PM
;)

Clefo
07-30-2001, 05:14 PM
Jebus man you posted a message just to make a smiely?

Windrider
07-30-2001, 05:16 PM
Did I jinx this thread?

Starnick10287
07-30-2001, 05:21 PM
Getting back to the topic: there will probably be just terrain types that repesents a planet, or you maybe you can pick which planet? Guess we'll have to wait. :(

In my mad pursuit of the magical 100 post mark, such things must be done ;)

Paragon_Leon
07-30-2001, 08:02 PM
i'd go for planet-selection too.
it just fits this particular game better.

Tie Guy
07-30-2001, 11:09 PM
Yeah, it would be interesting playing Naboo Vs. Gungans on Kashyyyk. :D

Darth_Rommel
07-30-2001, 11:10 PM
Or wookies vs. alliance on Endor joy

Tie Guy
07-31-2001, 12:29 AM
Or alliance vs empire on naboo.

Starnick10287
07-31-2001, 02:59 AM
I wonder if on the same map you can travel to a different planet.

Paragon_Leon
07-31-2001, 04:42 AM
no way. that's simply not in the engine..

BlueSenateGuard
07-31-2001, 09:11 AM
I'd like to see how the Gungans fare on Hoth! He he.

Paragon_Leon
07-31-2001, 10:35 AM
that will probably not matter.

The 'realism' is nice (if you can say that with SW-movies as your background), but that's probably taking it two steps too far

Tie Guy
07-31-2001, 11:44 AM
What is, the gungans on hoth or the switching worlds on one map?

Paragon_Leon
07-31-2001, 11:47 AM
erm, I meant that Gungans on Hoth doesn't matter in terms of realism.
it's simply about having a change of backdrop to your blasting.

Tie Guy
07-31-2001, 12:15 PM
ok, that's what i thought. It would be cool to have a map with several different climates on it though.

Paragon_Leon
07-31-2001, 06:48 PM
maybe on giant sized maps ?

which leads to another question: do you think mapsizes will be the same or are we going to see MEGA-maps ??

Tie Guy
07-31-2001, 06:59 PM
probably the same.

Paragon_Leon
07-31-2001, 07:02 PM
yeah, that's what i'm afraid of too. i would really like to see map-scale increased to being incredibly, insanely big. now that's my idea of a fun 16-player battle !! (just kidding there about the 16-player thing, folks)

Tie Guy
07-31-2001, 10:38 PM
I find it much less fun when your bases are far apart. When your fighting for space to expand your base, that when the real and incessant fighting begins. :D

Paragon_Leon
08-02-2001, 11:25 AM
the fun in being far apart is that you're almost guaranteed big-scale battles. everyone has time to build an army, instead of being rushed and eliminated early on.

Tie Guy
08-02-2001, 06:31 PM
well, not everyone is close together, so you can take time to build big armies, but you should hav to fight with someone, not jsut sit on your forces.

Paragon_Leon
08-02-2001, 06:35 PM
you'd have to fight eventually.... besides, with air-units you'll get to another base mighty fast, don't you think ?

Tie Guy
08-02-2001, 08:45 PM
not neccessarily. air units probaby won't be a factor early in the game.

Paragon_Leon
08-03-2001, 07:09 AM
true, but judging from the building / advancement speed in AOK, i'd reckon you could get air-units within 20 minutes.

Tie Guy
08-03-2001, 01:58 PM
That's enough time for alot to happen.

Darth_Rommel
08-03-2001, 02:00 PM
Yep... and I think you get air defense in the first age, i'm not sure though :confused:

Paragon_Leon
08-03-2001, 02:04 PM
it doesn't have to happen in the first age. what i'm saying is that in AOK people made it a sport to advance through the different ages as soon as possible. They would be in the third age (translated into 'Tech Levels' in GB) within 20 minutes, so they could have air-units pretty fast.

remember, the first few minutes are spent exploring and getting your economy up to speed. if you don't do that, you can't support an army.

if it's instant-action you want, GB will have a Deathmatch feature, that gives you stacks of resources, puts you in the final Tech Level with all units available and lets you get to it from the first second..

that way we can have huge AT-AT battles..

Darth_Rommel
08-03-2001, 02:12 PM
You can very effectively defend or attack in the first age - but you can also skip to the 3rd age and use the powerful units there.

This is from the mr. fixit preview. ;)

Paragon_Leon
08-03-2001, 02:14 PM
well that answers both questions, but you really have to read between the lines. defending very effectively in the first age means either getting air-defence towers early on or it means you get fighters right away. i'd say it's both, but the first fighters should be reconnaissance craft..

Darth_Rommel
08-03-2001, 02:20 PM
"fighters hit the skys in the third age"

I'll bet you have the ability to build air towers in the first age, but the would be useless until someone got to the third ;)

Tie Guy
08-03-2001, 05:45 PM
yes, you would need air defenses in the first age coz your opponent could be way ahead of you in terms of ages.

Leon, how do you advance to a new age?
