Gameplay suggestions

Hi everyone!

Last night, I had a thought of what this mod could use. Because this mod is the first mod where you play for the Dark Side, how about setting some uniqueness in the Mod. I reckon adding new force powers will make this Mod unique. What do you think? (obviously a lot of coding would have to take place).

Very good suggestion Jedi Luke! If it becomes so, (I am directing this to Tito ) could we have Force Destruction? Pleeeeease? If we do, could we not make it a ball that looks like a Michael Jordan basketball pass? But instead, a long blast that whells up in the hands, glowing red/orange, then shoots quickly to wherever the crosshair is. (If anybody had a hard time following that, discard the idea. )

aww too bad when the jediknight.net set up this forum it didn't enable delete and edit feature...also the so important sticky feature we needed to put some important thread up....... maybe that why when i saw new names on the raj forum they didn't post anything cos they dun noe where to start from?


and hmm this idea is good but.............surely it will take a lot of work to do this and well maybe some other raj staff will answer u since i'm not incharge of this.........

Thank you.

Force Destruction plus other force abilities is what sparked this idea .

How many years do you want to wait for this mod?

It's impossible without the SP sourcecode, and that one isn't getting released for sooooome time..

*sorry for the double-post*

Raven released the mp.exe with mod enhancement capabilities. That's why a MP SDK was released. Apparantly there is scripting capabilities for the mp.exe so that you can pull off a SP type campaign in MP.

It wouldn't be the same if SP was MP, even if it was like SP. Not as fun, and some of the moves would be obstructed.

Well without the SP SDK, we don't have the SP sourcecode. We're all basically handicapped (even at Dark Forces). We'll just have to work with what we are given.

This is what one of our modders said at the DF forums

Quote:
...the only glimmer of hope is that Raven ultimately released the SP SDK for Elite Force after releasing the Expansion Pack and the MP code, but as you said, I wouldn't bet on it either
At least there is some hope although little.

I'm not basing my answers on what I i]think[/i], I'm basing them on what Ford Dye (RavenSoft) told me. In MP, it's just impossible to do the same as SP simply because of the different engine. Also, you can'do cutscenes in MP, and the map I'm doing for RAJ has some special stuff that can't be done in MP without molesting the engine.

Also, RAJ can now let it all go in utter detail, because of the shaderlimit and r_speed protection in SP.

Unfortunately, new Force Powers would be quite impossible for us to make, as already mentioned... Though I'll look into it a bit more...

Other ideas are still appreciated...

hmm this thread will fit in nicely to the wish list thread don't u think so?

and anyway sent some mails to those German language jediknight related website hoping they will say about us since jediknight.net didn't say about us despite our mails....

hope these German languages site dun ignore us too..........i even play safe that in my mail i include an English and German explanation......and i really can't understand why most site dun list about uswhen we tell them about it while others can..when they mail them....which is what we did....maybe we need to do more things like using the website forum and private message the staffs instead?

(erm this is not intended to end the thread feel free to continue what u all are talking about)

Great ideas there... But we would still need a coder good enough to recreate EVERYTHING from the SP-engine to the MP-engine AND on top of that make the new Powers... Would take a buttload of work...

I've only had a brief look at C and have only used MS C++ once. I've only looked at a few details of the C language and it definately requires commitment, skill and effort. Dev C++ is supposed to be good and it's free.

The MP engine has too much graphical limitations that cannot be changed unless JA ges opensource. Knowing Id Software, that'd prolly take over 4 years. If this mod is still a WIP by then, you might as well consider it a dead mod.

On the other hand, we can also leave out the new Force Powers.
