What would you ask LEC?

LFNetwork and SWBattlefront.net have been asked to come up with a list of questions to ask the Battlefront development team. Post some questions you'd liked asked and we'll narrow the list down to a managable amount and forward them to LucasArts. So post your questions here and be sure to ask some good ones!

OK, here is my question.

How many different maps will be available and what are they.

Mod tools - Will they be released with the game? Later on? At all?

With multiplayer games comes cheating - will PunkBuster or some other form of cheat-protection come with the game?

Will think of more later...

Will it have robust anti-teamkilling features, like forgive/punish (in Enemy Territory) or ROE (in America's Army)?
Will the community be able to easily make new maps and mods for it?
Will it allow alt-tabbing out to the desktop? (IMO a crucial feature in a multiplayer game, to allow me to easily invite friends to play with me)

You saying the game is similar to BF1942, how much will it be similar and what are the differences(besides being Star Wars)?

As a comic book-reader, I've noticed some battlemachines from the original trilogy in the prequel trilogy (ex. the AT-AT walker in the Star Wars - Republic comics), will both timelines feature same elements? Weapons, jetpacks for original trilogy, speeder-bikes for prequel trilogy, and so on...

And a second question, how will you create the Star Wars "feel", besides working really hard on looks of the game? Music, atmosphere, soundseffect. Having played the Clone Wars game, I felt there was too much creative use of elements not seen in the movies, and didn't seem right to recreative the feel from the movies.


Prequel Trilogy, yes thank you!

i like the maps question. also i wonder what is there weapons list, how they plan to do anti-aircraft (meaning how affective the rocket launcher will be, if there is another infantry anti-aircraft weapon or is it just the rocket launcher, vehicles, and stationary guns seen in pics), a list of weapons, a list of special characters and abilities, list of classes, list of vehicles, and list of all gameplay modes. yeah so a list of anything they can give us, but the one i like the most is the number of maps and what are they (like multiple maps for each world or one map per world)


do or do not there is no try - yoda

1.) Is it going to feature lock-on targeting or a reticule for third-person?

2.) Is there a limit on how many vehicles can be on the battlefield?

3.) Other than bailing out, do players have the ability to stop a vehicle and disembark (as well as jumping into a stopped vehicle)?

4.) Will there be clan support, like automatic tags and friend lists?

1. what type of physics engine is being used, and will there be a difference in the physics quality in all 3 different version. Will there be only ragdoll physics on players or both players and vehicles and world objects? or none, just using physics sims on objects and characters inside a 3dpackage baking the animation and exporting it out a premade sequence?

2. Will there be different graphic enhancements for the xbox/pc version like...bump mapping, vertex/pixel shaders seen in games like kotor/halo/etc and what is the difference in texture resolution between the xbox and pc version.

3. what type of lighting is being used besides the soft blend that is similar to prince of persia, volumetric shadows on characters and world objects? or something more like ut2k3?

4. If mod tools are ever released will there be support for 3dsmax/maya/softimage/lightwave?

5. How are levels constructed/terrain? inhouse level editor, or modeled and exported out or a mixture of both?

6. Will there be a difference in player/vehicle polycounts between the 3 different versions

7. How has the developing for the ps2 limited the physics/graphics for the pc/xbox if at all?


Your infected!

^there should be.
My questions, which haven't been asked yet:
Will it make any difference being a pilot in say, the empire than for the rebellion?
Is the republic army made out of just stormtroopers?
Will there be any maps of planets we haven't seen before?
How will single-player be different from multiplayer in the gameplay itself?


Vader's wife was very pregnant when she died 19 years ago. All of a sudden a 19 year old who is very strong in the force and has a distinct resembalance to him in his younger days rolls in from Vader's home planet with his old Master Obi-Wan (Who was the ONLY other person preset at the time his wife died. And to boot, the kid's last name is Skywalker.

So in answer to your question, he knew Luke was his son because his name is Darth Vader, and not Darth Retard.

If figting goes on near buildings, will they be accessable?

How many people will the be able to carry?
How many (and what) vehicles are there?

I can eliminate some of the questions above by answering themself:

Quote:

I belive you mean the Imperial army, and no. there is also an Imp Offiser that can spot Rebel stealth guys and call an air strike. also the pilot looks different.

Quote:
4) IN single palyer which side do u take or can u choose? Are there different missions for each side?
not very. its the same, exept there are bots isntead.

Quote:

they are making they're own one.

6. dont know have many times I have said that.

Awesome

I'm a bit unsure about all the flying vehicles stuff; will we be able to fly all of them (some might be bots); air vehicle limit; good anti air?

The "at-sts" in the trailer looked more like AT-PTs with their heads so low(next to the legs) will this be improved?

maybe a bit to early:
After the release of SWBF do you plan to keep working on some small stuff for it afterwards? (patches) And also for example (before release) keep in communication with the community by for example LFN? (answer more Q here, post stuff here..suggestions etc)

1.)Will vehicle interiors be moddled (like the BF1942 APC) or will we just the the vehicle like in Jedi Academy? If so, can we walk around inside the AT-AT?

2.)Will we be able to jump?

3.)Will be able to appoint a 'team leader' who could perhaps raise morale (i.e. increase health for troops in a certain radius around him)?

4.)Will the gun/vehicluar combat be balanced? Or will it turn out like BF1942 with a much heavier emphasis on vehicle combat?

5.)Will we be able to change day/night options for the levels?

I'll think of more soon.

1. Will the game be playable at all on a 56K internet connection?

2. How will the special team abilities work? Will one person be in charge of deploying them, or does the team vote?

How many different soliders will there be for each side? Will there be any ARC Troopers for the Republic side, will there feature any EU-characters, and what about the tanks from The Clone Wars games?

Hehe. I don't have any ideas for good questions that differ from what's already been posted but I want to know if we'll see Max hidden in the game somewhere.

We will. Certainly. You can't have a Lucasarts game without Max hidden in it somewhere.

1. How many weapons can we pickup/carry?

2. Will the classes have different stats (HP, speed and defense)?

3. Is there hand to hand combat?

4. Will there be team specific weapons?

5. Will there be team specific vehicles?

6. Can the special NPC Jedi use the force against you?

7. How fast/slow is the projectile speed going to be?

8. How many hits will it generally take to kill someone?

9. Will the vehicles be the right size compared to players?

10. How long can players stay in the air with the jetpack?



Thats all I can think of.

Errr Off-topic

Will there be a limit of players for a certain class(like I've heard about those stealth guys, will there be a limit of people playing them in a game)?

How do you expect to balance Stealth units, Jet-Pack trooper and units as powerful as Droidekas?

Will Kamino be an entirely water-level, actually an air-level, since I presume we'll be fighting in air?

Any female characters to choose from?

How effective will thermal detonators be, since they variate much from SW game to game.

EDIT: A list of wide ranging questions was sent out to LEC tonight! Hopefully we'll have our answers soon enough!
