These should be part of Battlefront 3
 
First you should be able to customize your own troops weapons ships ect...

Then you should be able to take prisoners when you are the CIS or the empire.

Also you should be able to give your troops more commands like move out hold fire fire at will hold position ECT...

oo oo also there should be able to be darth nihilus darth raven ect...
( Also qui-gon jinn should be in it.)

You should also be able to ride creatures.

and an assult mode should be the geonosian arena jedi VS the Droids *GASP*

Also you should be able to go from planet to space to planet all in 1 battle.

Plus the color of the troops should match the planet they are on like utupau they are orange also you should be able to be commander and jedi so 2 count them 2 heros per faction. well ill report back when i have somthing els to add
And remember the dark side is the right side :sithk: .

FETALabattoir 08-10-2007 03:56 PM

it should also allow you to land your ship to a planet manually and fight from space to ground

peepulwaxer 08-10-2007 07:36 PM

stuff to include:
- capital ship control
- more units and maps
- more vehicles and fighters (naboo starfighter)
- better gameplay for first person
- a lot of unlockable things (via points or achievments or something) such as the Millenium Falcon, Slave I, powerful weapons, etc.
- hero duels, like those in "Dynasty Warriors," where heroes may choose to fight a seperate battle when they get close to eachother
- weapon and armor upgrades (via a point system) like scopes and such
- larger battles; in space, there would be multiple capital ships on each side
- more moves for soldiers (corner popping, melee attacks, etc.)
- more force powers

peepulwaxer 08-10-2007 07:52 PM

- also occasional historical missions, such as Anakin destroying the Trade Federation droid control ship and the rescue of Chancellor Palpatine by Anakin and Obi-Wan

1. Yes
2. Yes
3. yes
4. Its the same for both
5. yes but should be done in same way as land heroes and there should be a bomber hero and a fighter hero so everyone doesnt just go bomber in an attempt to get enough points for the fighter hero really early
6. This isnt jedi knight, jedi shouldn't be in the game and they sure as hell shouldn't get their own little minigame thing
7. Yes
8. especially melee
9. No force powers since there shouldnt be jedi.

Jawajedi 08-11-2007 05:24 PM

i think a knife like in republic commando and 2 guns

deathclone 08-11-2007 05:46 PM

WAIT WAIT WAIT WAIT WAIT WAIT WAIT WAIT WAIT WAIT WAIT WAIT wait..................wait jedi not in the game R U CRAZY FOOL my friends wanna BUY the game to be jedi and its kwl cuz like it says on the back of the cover JEDI CAN CHANGE THE BATTLE!!!!!!! like on kashhyk i always lose on clones but when yoda comes HI-YA i win a hu and i still sometimes lose but who cares jedi r really kwl if there were more jedi only lvls

RC-1207 08-11-2007 07:03 PM

This is why drugs are bad kids.

Darth Sean 08-11-2007 08:33 PM

ok...

darkjedimonkey 08-12-2007 12:42 PM

jedis arent the point of the game
the point of the game is to be a grunt, a trooper, the middle man

redbull31 08-13-2007 03:34 AM

I think these things should be in BF3
1. Have every planet have at least 2 battlefields like BF1

2. Bring back Dune Sea, Rhen Var, Bespin

3. Be able to Mix and Match Troops, Weapons

4. Have a troop hero and a jedi on every battlefield ex. Commander Cody and Obi-Wan on Utapau

5. Bring back the cool loading screen from BF1

Darth Sean 08-13-2007 11:45 AM

uhhh welll the jedi are cool cuz in the first 1 there are 4 ways to kill them so its goood to be that powerful.

i agree with definitely 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5

i also think space battles should be more detailed
more spacious ships
as in more then 5 rooms in a ship
:smash:

WOW this is getting populare YAY im populare

darkjedimonkey 08-14-2007 09:59 AM

swbf 3 should have all known planets from the movies
and others.
each planet should have like... 4 battlefields
troops being customizable is an arguable subject
but im all for it
more selections in everything
:king1: :blast5:

I have to say I really like that Idea.

thank you very much
:laughing:





also
1. i was thinking about more weapons
ion cannons and tractor beam projectors.
put them on ships and ground bases.

2.i like the tighter fighting enviorments
like theed and the tantive
where there is like 50 people from each side jam-packed into a hallway

3.bigger interiors in ships and vehicles
when i get into an AT AT i dont really just ride in the cockpit do i?
there is a whole two decks inside that metal heap and shouldnt we be able
to go inside it? so should enemies. rebels could repel up onto the hull
and cut a hole in it and invade!

basically i mean more options
we shouldnt be limited

stuff like that would be awesome
:blaze6:

GeneralPloKoon 08-15-2007 12:44 AM

I hope battlefront III stays away from customization, I just hate that idea for battlefront.

darkjedimonkey 08-15-2007 12:31 PM

well
customization "sounds" good
but its really gonna suck
cuz everyones gonna go with a jetpack
maybe they should have it as an option
so u can select it or not select it

GeneralPloKoon 08-17-2007 04:40 AM

Customization would make sense for the rebels. But all the other factions in the true star wars universe, stormtroopers,clones, and battle droids didn't have never use customizations, different units, but no customize.

All I think Battlefront III needs is more planets,vehicles,factions,battlefeilds, and eras, less stronger jedi/sith heroes, better space battles, starfighters on planets, more hunt and ctf maps, more heroes on a map at a time. And an Objective game type similar to Wolfenstein:Enemy territory or the story levels of Battlefront II.

wow
i agree
especially with customization just for rebels
i mean
how do you customize a battle droid? make it have a red head?
and how do you customize a storm or clone trooper? lol. make it blue?

Clones used lots of customization. It goes back to their Mando heritage.

jawathehutt 08-18-2007 06:13 PM

By lots, do you mean they painted their armor differently? I mean, saying thats lots of customization is like making a computer that cant have any parts switched out, but giving it 100 different cases and saying that its fully customiseable(SP, danm not havin firefox)

GeneralPloKoon 08-18-2007 06:28 PM

The customization that the clones used were mainly hardly noticeable.

darkjedimonkey 08-20-2007 12:41 AM

well
there really isnt much to customize is there?
weapons, armor, helmet, etc.
thats pretty much it
maybe your ship
something like that

GeneralPloKoon 08-20-2007 06:06 PM

The ARC commandos did have an customized gunship.....

peepulwaxer 08-20-2007 08:53 PM

I would like the first person gameplay to be A LITTLE more like republic commando's. This is not too much to ask for the XBOX 360.

jawathehutt 08-20-2007 11:34 PM

Do you mean have it look like the hud or have it be just different gameplay than 3rd?

darkjedimonkey 08-21-2007 12:05 AM

yeah, i just thought of something cool. it would be nice to be able to change
your weapons on your ship.

TripHammer 08-22-2007 04:27 PM

I'm not into the customization of the skins. Certain colors did mean certain units. It helps identify what a unit is. If I'm looking at someone across the map... I can see what unit they are by their color. If you're talking different rebel uniforms... they had specific garb for certain conditions.. it should all be the same uniform for the planet/conditions they're in... IMHO.

I kinda like this idea. Maybe more choices when switching positions in a ship/vehicle as well.

yeah well there should be more room on these ships. again i say laat/i gunships hold 20 troops so the troops on it, (you me or anyone else) should be able to shoot from it. shoot missiles, throw grenades, shoot our guns, etc.

vader815 08-23-2007 09:13 PM

1. Jedi should be as avaible to the republic has a jet trooper, but like in BWF2 with pop limit.
2. The separatist should have Grevious's bodyguards with the electostaffs to counter the jedi. with faster reflexes to counter their lack of force powers
3. The ARC-170's should have the rear turrent
4. At-te's and At-At should be on more maps
5. more maps

I no some of this stuff may have already been posted but, this thread is getting long

darkjedimonkey 08-24-2007 12:26 AM

i like your ideas vader815.

TripHammer 08-24-2007 05:20 PM

^^ Definitely good ideas there.

I'd like to see more maps for sure. There would prolly be some repeated from SWBF2 though. Which isn't too bad in some cases. I like the Kamino in SWBF2 better than Tipoca City in SWBF1. I wouldn't mind seeing a hyped up Bespin: Cloud City map in SWBF3. I don't know why they gave that a pass in SWBF2. I thought it was one of the better maps. I have to play the converted version from GameToast (which works well). I just would have liked it when I bought the game..

I would have rather seen Bespin Cloud City in SWBF2 over Jabba's Palace for sure. I was sick of JAbba's in SWBF1. Too many mine crappers in Jabba's... so then you get nothing but engineers throwing dets. If bots are on.. you just lay mines down and rack up your score with gamoreans tripping on the mines.

It's too close quarters for a good game on Jabba's. It is nice if everyone goes sniper. Then you get more practice dodging and bobbing behind walls and doorways. It becomes more of a "game". Another good way to get the most out of Jabba's is to go pistols only. Granted... tough in a public server.. but would work well for a bunch of friends all on the same page.

darkjedimonkey 08-24-2007 09:40 PM

i really hate jabbas palace. its just retarded.

General Bly 09-06-2007 09:08 PM

the actuall locations from the movies. like kashyyyk. in episode 3 that awesome area that they were figting in with the bunkers and trenches it should be that. not a wall and a generator u have to defend. and different legions. like pick the 501st or the 492nd on any level or w/e. i had something really good but i forgot. ill post back if i think of it. i thought of something else. more abilitys for a hero. like vader can have force choke, saber throw, throw people(new one, like actually hold them up in the air and throw) and force push. and palpatine, lightning, choke, pick up people, force pull. also more weapons for other people. like greivous. he can have his sabers, the blaster he had in the movie, or the lightning rod he had in the movie also. same for the bodyguard dudes they can use their lightning staff things instead of the bulldog RL i hate that thing. and different costumes for heroes as well. another thing, fight on star destroyers and other cruisers, like go through the whole ship, not just the hangar and that little area with the critical systems. something else. pick up other peoples weapons. like if theres a tank and ur a sniper and a vanguard or a tank trooper dies by u u can pick it up and use it till u die or u get rid of it.

Fettscommander 09-14-2007 12:07 PM

I've seen a lot of bf3 threads about what people want...why don't we make just one thread and call it...Star wars battlefront III Supah thread continued....

jawathehutt 09-14-2007 04:21 PM

A ton less work for the mods.

jackthorn 09-15-2007 06:34 PM

Okay: to the tackling of points.

CUSTOMIZATION. First, we should realize that we're looking at two different types of customization being discussed here: Superficial Customization (tan vs green vs black clothes, shoulderpad thing or no, color demarcations on Clone armor e.g. the 501st or 327th or 21st Nova Corps, etc) and EQ Customization (choosing what sort of weapons and armor and equipment each individual non-AI unit would have).

That said, I think EQ Customization would sink the multiplayer version of the game into a mire of indistinguishable min/maxers who just pick the best weapons, and the singleplayer version would no longer have that "just one of the grunts" feel because the player would be customizing in ways that no droid or imperial or clone was ever allowed to, except maybe the most elite of heroes and generals.

And as far as Superficial Customization goes, while I don't see any real harm in most forms of it, I'd rather see broader and more sensible customization than super-individualized stuff. For example, I could see setting every map, whether on a server or on single play, so that the skins were chosen for each side involved -- say, let's have Clones from the 327th fighting pale gray droids on this map, but on the other one let's have green-camo rebels fighting, well, the standards Imperial troops. Which is the main problem with this: the Imperials will have very little in the way of customization at all, unless one wants to ignore canon and the bulk of the EU completely. And really, the rebels and the droids would mainly just get color-changes to their wardrobe. Seems easier to just let each map have a certain set of skins associated with it. Though I do get tired of only playing the 501st on standard maps in BF2. And I think it would be nice to be able to switch between, say, a male and a female for each unit, or a droid and a Geonosian, or a human and some other species, while the other features remain the same.


TAKING PRISONERS. Interesting idea... sounds like it might be complicated, though. What would be done with the prisoners? What would be the benefits of taking prisoners? What would a player's options be if they were taken prisoner?


MORE COMMANDS. I agree on this one -- BF1 was much better with its 4 different commands, I am baffled as to why they changed it for BF2. I was even thinking that maybe, instead of "At Ease", they could introduce a new command where you direct specialists to do their thing: Heavy Weapons units lay mines and look for vehicles or turrets to take out; Snipers set out auto-turrets and start sniping likely targets; Engineers dispense health and ammo, and make repairs on nearby vehicles, turrets, or droids...


EU ELEMENTS. I tend to think that some EU elements would be fine, if used with a light touch. Adding elements from the most popular or most near-canon sources would be a good start -- the Republic / Clone Wars comics, for example, or some of the less outlandish elements of the Thrawn series? Having a Honoghr map, for example, with Quinlan and Aayla in the CW era, a Jedi Leia and maybe Pellaeon in the GCW era, and the Noghri as a universally hostile third side... well, that might be less alienating for the unfamiliar than full-out EU context-shift like the Yuuzhan Vong would be.


RIDE CREATURES. Sure, though of course only on suitable maps; and actually, lots of mods have ridable creatures, though more would be nice. Dewbacks, bantha, etc, sure.


GEONOSIS ARENA. There's already a mod map out there that does this -- though it's basically just four CPs on a flat round area, nondescript Jedi vs. regular droids. I have plans for a more elaborate and interesting version of the Geonosis Arena...


SPACE-TO-GROUND. This sounds like a great idea, and I was initially quite in favor of it. Actually, it IS a great idea. But from what I know, it would be almost impossible in terms of what even an Xbox360, PS3, or a pimped-up PC could do. Running what amounts to two or more large map battles at once? With elements possibly crossing over and affecting each other? And potentially with the expanded Capital Ship interiors we'd all like to see? I think that's just asking too much.


I'm ALL for skins matching the map as per the movies or other sources, as I wrote above. I love the mod maps by ValiantOfficer, in his Critical Moments map-pack - Felucia with Bly and the 327th in yellow, Mygeeto with Bacara and the 21st in purple, Utapau with Cody and the 212th in orange, etc.


HERO DUELS. These definitely seem to be something that would fit better in a different game. If they were included in BF3 I'd want them to be optional, so you could go into the settings and decide whether you wanted them or not.


WEAPON & ARMOR UPGRADES. I assume you meant something different than the weapon and armor upgrades you get in BF2 through the medals and awards?


MULTIPLE CAPITAL SHIPS. Another great idea, and it might not tax the RAM and processor too much... in fact, I think there are one or two mod maps that have this already for BF2.


PEOPLE DISLIKING HEROES & JEDI. I have to say, if you don't like them, don't play them. I can definitely see how some people might tweak the settings to the point where the Jedi and Heroes get annoying as hell. But just don't play on those servers, you know?


MORE MAPS PER PLANET. Another idea I'm all for. I really got annoyed with the whole BF2 thing where there's only one map per planet for the most part.


MIX AND MATCH WEAPONS & GEAR. This just sounds like a bad idea, as I mentioned in my comments above re: EQ Customization. You'd just end up with a bunch of min/maxers with Rocket Launchers, Sniper Rifles, Mines, and Jetpacks. Egh.


The Old BF1 loading screen? Right on!!! Bring it back.


Gameplay like Republic Commando? Er... why don't you just play Republic Commando? Honestly, I don't understand why so many people seem to want Battelfront to be more like some other Star Wars game. That's why they made separate games, folks.

That's all for now...
