Correllian Corvette Mod

Hello,
I am new to posting, but not new to Star Wars gaming and the mods. I have ZERO skills when it comes to knowing where to begin to make maps or mods. My question is this.

Has anyone made a mod of the opening scene of A New Hope where the Star Destroyer swallows up the Corvette? I would like to see one where the point of the mission is to stave off the Empire long enough to allow the droids to escape, or... even better, play as the Empire and capture the droids before they escape. It could be played as a precursor to the Tattoine maps.

It may be tough to incorporate all the classes, since it appears there are only Vanguards and Stormtroopers, but if anyone is interested or if they know of one already done for another game, I would like to hear about it.

Thanks,
idolx1

Well you can very easily make it so that there are no other classes besides the trooper and vanguard, this could be a neat level but i dont think you would be able to capture the droids, maybe destrot them, that could work. Also the map would be easy to build but in my opinion, a little too small, unless a small part of the star destroyer was playable.

Can't make new maps without modding tools.

I think that could easily be done. Just make the area with the droids a command post, and make it so the Empire wins immediately when it's captured, rather than the 20 second countdown.

The Corellian corvette map wouldn't have to be that small, just narrow. The ship itself is 165 meters long and about 50 wide. If Multiple decks are included, the volume alone would make a decent enough map, especially if the boarding tunnel was included and the airlock it extends from.

I think it would be a pretty good level. Since it would be mainly narrow corridors, it would kind of a "run the gauntlet" level for the Imps, since they'd have have to push their way all the way to th end where the droids are located. It would be a pretty cool challenge, I think.

Actually, this was one level I was dissapointed Pandemic didn't include in the release. It's a natural, and one of the few instances in the films which lends itself nicely to the limitations of BF; it's a straight deathmatch/hold 'em game, with obvious control points to hold/take, and a constant supply of stormtroopers makes perfect sense. It'll have that same great kill-zone that Bespin platforms has between the extractor and the two command posts, and yeah, include parts of the destroyer...maybe the docking control area where the rebs have to take control of the tractor beam and release the corvette...man, this could have been great.
Yeah, I definitly hope someone does this level once we get some mapping tools. Either that, or if we can figure out the format the static meshes need to be in, and how to get them in game. I'll gladly take a shot at the corvette interior meshes.

Thanks for pointing me to Movie Battles, I can definitely try that.

I like the idea of just the 2 classes being available. Using Vader as a Jedi Hero would make it very tough for the Rebels to defeat or hold out until the droids escape.
I like the idea of boarding a control in the star destroyer too, as a way to free the Corvette.

It sounds like there is some interest, so I will keep checking back to see if anyone has taken up the map.

You would need to mod the luke hero and make it liea, maybe using the skin tool to change his skin. Obviously she would need a blaster too as opposed to the lightsaber but i am sure that could be made possible. Also the troopers would need extra re-enforcments but that is in the game already so that should also be possible. To be honest i don't know why they didn't include this level in the first place.
