Question That Craptacular Imp Pistol? Realisim Mod

Listen, I love this game, and i'll never get rif of it, but that Imp pistol is just plain CRAP. I mean, come on! Being an avid Star Wars maniac, i know almost everything about the Empire and such. But anyways, what ever happened to the DL-18 Heavy Blaster pistol? This little pisol was only used once in the series, by the Scout Trooper. Otherwise, every other Imp had ad DL-18, which looks a lot better, is more powerful, and is more on par with the DL-44. By now, you are undoubtedly wondereing why im putting this in modding. Well, i was hoping to start a realisim mod for SWBF, but i need some people to help. I can do sounds and skins, as well as stats and text editing, but 3d modeling is beyond me, and putting the files in so they work is beyond me. I was hoping to start this mod off, and deliver it in installments, one revamping the sounds, looks, and models of the guns, another char skins, etc. I was also hoping to replace the regular green Rebel Soldier with the one from ANH, kinda like the Vanguard, just with minor changes. Anyways, if anyone is interested, just post a message on this thread, or PM me. THNX!!!!!!!!!!!

The blaster pistol used by Imperials in this game is the small hold-out pistol used by Scout Troopers.

But, the rest of the classes were supposed to get what is now the Separatist Blaster Pistol. See in my sig there? That's the pistol the rest of the Imperials should have gotten. Originally the devs had the now Separatist Blaster Pistol for the Imperials, but then they changed it so it wouldn't conflict with the Separatists.

The BlasTech DL-18 Blaster Pistol was not used by Imperials - ever. It was used by Jabba's guards.



^ The above is a DL-18.

And, replacing the Rebel Soldier with the ANH Rebel Fleet Trooper makes no sense. The Rebel Fleet Troopers were not an infantry force and nor did they fight in any battles. Fighting an Imperial boarding party is not a battle.

I will be creating a realism mod myself.

Actually Phase 2 & 3 Darktroopers DO have jetpacks.
But they were able to fly around everywhere more like the Jet Trooper.

Check out Dark Forces, you'll see what I mean. Of course they also carried Assault Cannons, not those weird E-11's with the "shotgun" blaster effect.

Sorry, I forgot, I meant the DH-17. Also, I realize that Fleet Troopers were not part of the main stream Allaince Infantry, I was talking about doing it to specific maps, like Yavin 4, where there wouldn't be as many Infantry, so much as Fleet Troopers. I would never think of changing them on Hoth or Endor, because they just look so well there, but maps like Yavin 4 or maybe Bespin, I think that Fleet Troopers would look better. Also, whats up with the slow starfighter lasers in game? The LAAT, Y-Wing, and X-Wing lasers travel so slow , and that irks me. Im working on a way to hopefully change that. Anyways, get back to me about the pistol and Trooper thing. Thnx

Only officers and Death Star Troopers used DH-17 blaster pistols. The DH-17 was actually a weapon mainly used by Rebels, and was never seen used by Imperials in ESB or RotJ, but was seen used by Rebels on Hoth.

For a realism mod, all Imperials except for Scout Troopers should use the Separatist Blaster Pistol.

I didn't want to change the scouts blaster, just the stormtrooper, shock trooper, and pilot's.
