View Full Version : Just a question of the making of this mod...

Well, DF is my favorite in the series because of its variety of exotic locales and original (SWish) music. JO has too many of the same texture throughout the game, so thats why the first three are cool! But DF has different textures in every level pretty much! If you didn't have to recreate all of these textures, how much faster would the making of this take? I mean, map creation and scripting. Are these the easy parts?

This would be if you didn't have to do: Textures, Sounds (excluding voices), and Music. Just curious...
I want to know how far you guys are on the architecture of the game.

And to speed your progress, I'll advise any level editors who want to work on this mod (with your approval of their work of course) to do so on the SW forums. Hopefully that will get more people on the team. ;)

thanks for looking for help for us - we need it.


I can't give you an exact time per level type of answer though - we were adjusting the map scripts and errors up until the last day and we were doing textures up until the last week, so each takes about the same amount of time - that is, a LOT of time. I hope that isn't too vague

I mean the architecture in Radiant. No new textures applied. When a map says 10 or 25 perxent, I'd like to know what exactly that means...
Music, sound, models, architecture (sectors as called in JED), scripting, etc, etc, etc...


I got a bunch of people to download the demo and they all loved it. But know one seems to have responded to the link to your Help Wanted thread...

I found this by posting a thread on the Star Wars forums: DF levels for JO?
I wanted the levels from DF for JO. Someone gave me the link and now I'm rollin'!

Honestly, it doesn't mean anything concrete. It's a general feeling about how far we've gone and how much we have left to do. I don't have a spreadsheet with check items for every little thing - those values are mostly gut instinct and educated guestimations.

still, they are pretty accurate ;-)
