Star Wars - Shadows of the Empire
 
Star Wars - Shadows of the Empire

-----Plot-----
It is a perilous time for the galaxy now that an exhaustive civil war has taken a hold of the Empire’s gaze. The treacherous group of traitors, under the name the Rebel Alliance, have struggled for the past five years in the efforts of destroying the imperial government in hopes of returning the peace of the old Republic.

Amid the turmoil, the Emperor has filled his mind with the destruction of the Alliance so he may continue his Dark Reign on the greatest throne of power anyone has ever known. The Alliance has come to its near destruction as the Dark Lord hunts down the remaining leaders of the Rebels.

On a diplomatic mission to Alderann, the Tantive IV has been captured by the Executor, Darth Vader’s flagship, while a member of the Shadow of the Empire, a secret society of Force Sensitive agents under the direct command of Vader, searches effortlessly for the defector Princess Leia Organa…

Haha I'm so excited about this!

JM

Dak Drexl 02-21-2010 10:23 PM

Wow, this looks incredible! I've just recently started my own little OT mod (though much smaller) only to be thwarted by this! So, is this kind of a story behind the OT? Needless to say, I'm excited for this as well. It's always great to see the announcement of a big mod with already considerable progress.

harIII 02-21-2010 10:33 PM

This is the story of a 501st Clone War Veteran who is now serving with Vader and his secret task force of Force Sensitive agents. It will follow the cannon as best as possible and will bring you to a final confrontation with the Emperor and Vader (like I said it will follow the cannon as close as possible).

Xarwarz 02-22-2010 01:19 AM

Looks good keep at it

Time Lord 02-22-2010 03:00 AM

You do realize that there's an official LucasArts game called Shadows of the Empire? There's also a comic and a novel.

Queen of Night 02-22-2010 03:19 AM

Looks really good.

Te Darasuum Mandalor 02-22-2010 07:35 AM

I CANNOT WAIT! It has the gameplay of kotor and the storyline of A New Hope! So when does it take place in relation to the movies?

Canderis 02-22-2010 07:49 AM

The beginning level is the Tantive IV so....

EDIT:
This mod is going to end up having many newly modeled areas.

Yes, well about a month or two into the project. :migraine: But heck, this is a mod, where we can decide everything that happens. I'm sticking with the title.

Darth Payne 02-22-2010 08:34 AM

Wow, this looks great.

newbiemodder 02-22-2010 08:55 AM

It looks like you've done a lot of really good work here. Keep it up. It looks great.

Holty1-5 02-22-2010 11:19 AM

looks excellent
is it a new vader model or is it that guys who's name i cant remeber Avo or somthing like that

JuniorModder 02-22-2010 11:35 AM

I like Zorin the best! (the voice actor he got is spectacular! :P)

JM

harIII 02-22-2010 12:38 PM

If you look at the history (which only team members know) I believe so far Oriha or Armand are the most interesting.

Avol made the original Vader model, but I wasn't aware that he had given anyone permission to use his model in a mod before he left into the great unknown.

If it is his, then I don't think you'd be able to release the mod with his Vader model in it.

harIII 02-22-2010 03:41 PM

It is Avol's model but we have a legitimate way of "using" it in the mod. I spoke to an administrator who gave me the ok on it.

But regardless I'm still going to try getting permission.

none223 02-22-2010 04:39 PM

Is this a TC, SC, or just Expansion? I am questioning the cannonity of putting Rebellion Era with KotOR Era...

Trench 02-22-2010 04:42 PM

It's a total conversion. Besides, mods are non-canon. Canonicity is not a problem here.
This'll be a cool mod. :D

Canderis 02-22-2010 04:47 PM

The way I see mods are interactive fan fics

Hehe I was kidding, I was just referencing the AMAZING voice actor for Zorin. :D

TheHiddenJedi 02-22-2010 06:20 PM

Looks prety sweet cant wait for it to come out. If theres anything I can do to help let me know. :)

Canderis 02-22-2010 06:50 PM

Voice Acting. We'll need many of those.

JuniorModder 02-22-2010 07:41 PM

Though I'm doing Zorin already I'm willing to audition for other characters.

JM

harIII 02-22-2010 08:35 PM

There will be auditions but only later on when we're ready to release some material. Don't worry because there will be a (naughty word) load to make.

logan23 02-22-2010 09:16 PM

The mod is coming out great!

I love the pics :)

I agree that what matters is not wither its cannon to the tee, but that its a fun game with an engaging story that takes you on an adventure to another place.

I look forward how you weave your story line in and around the Star Wars movies. Its going to be fun to play:thmbup1:


Logan

harIII 02-22-2010 09:39 PM

Thanks Logan, I'm purposely making some things revolve around the movies but for the most part you'll be able to experience a whole new story with vastly different plots from that of the original KOTOR games.

I'm trying to make it unique and allow room for expansions later on.

Ping 02-23-2010 05:36 PM

Since you're trying to follow canon as close as possible, I should point out that the Tantive IV was not captured by the Executor - it doesn't appear until Episode 5. You'll remember that it was just a regular Star Destroyer that appeared at the start of Episode 4.

Phildevil 02-23-2010 05:53 PM

That would be the Devastator, Vader's previous flagship.

harIII 02-23-2010 07:09 PM

Well when I started the making this thing back in maybe November I wasn't aware of that and now that I already have the Executor set up to be the invading ship, I'm just going to leave it because of the events that happen on it. It just makes sense that it is Vader's Flagship because you'll be revisiting it later on.

N-5/Prudii 02-23-2010 09:59 PM

You guys should get permission and use the E-11 from this mod:
http://knightsoftheoldrepublic.filef...Blasters;67168
EDIT: The rebel one too ;)

harIII 02-23-2010 10:23 PM

Those are wicked, I'll see about getting the ok on those.

Have you actually done the Executor's outer hull? Because if you did not, there is little to no differences between the interior of such ships (except for the scale wich I assume will not be whole according to "the size of that thing").

harIII 02-23-2010 11:28 PM

No, there's really no way you're going to be able to see the ship. But like I said earlier the events that happen inside the Executor just feel like they have to be on Vader's Flagship so it'll take some convincing to persuade me to change it to the Devestator.

Phildevil 02-24-2010 12:24 AM

Well, that's not going to be hard: before the executor was built, Vader had another flagship: the "Devastator". When the Tantive IV was captured, the Executor wasn't build yet. So I guess if you feel those events should happen on his flagship, the Devastator is the ship you want...

More infos:
http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Devastator

By the way, because of the similarity in design between the 2 ships, about the only thing that would change would be the name of the ship.

harIII 02-24-2010 08:54 AM

Whoa I thought it would take more convincing than that. I'll go ahead and do it, you're right, if all I have to do is change the name, that won't be too difficult.

Kainzorus Prime 02-24-2010 09:53 AM

While I normally behead TC ideas in their cribs, this shows promise. I approve.

Thanks DK, I can use all the support you can give.

There most certainly will be, I still have to create them yet. The only reason why those three are the only ones you see is because I haven't been able to get started on the other planets with the exception of Coruscant part II.

There will be I think at least 10 companions and I have even figured out a system to use more than 10!
