Corsucant and planets

For those of you who have seen the latest trailer, toward the end of it, did anyone notice that huge attention to detail for Corsucant?

It just looked incredible and I haven't been so excited since watching the opening scene in Episode III, which judging this, we can all capture that intense action.

In addition to the traditional line up of planets, which ones are you looking forward to seeing and playing on?

Naboo I plan to use it as my seat of government in the game, and not because of gungans or any thing, but because its a nice planet.

Plus planets like Kashyyk, Geonosis because I cant wait to fight the creatures living there and on other inhabited planets

Yeah, if you look at the screenshot, it looks like it's from the movie so they're pretty accurate.

whoa! I didn't notice it at first, but that's amazing. They're really going to do it. They're going to take on the rendering collossis of Coruscant. I can't wait

I like the little touch in the trailer with the rally points on the map that look very similar to the rally points on Battlefront drawing in the similarity of the two games type thing.

Coruscant, Dathomir, Yavin, Hoth, and probably Tatooine are the ones I'm looking forward to. Admittedly Hoth and Tat are like one texture a piece, but I want to see what little goodies they throw in. Like the sarlaac pit, hutts, tuantauns, wampa caves, etc.

Whew... this game is looking better with every new movie/screenshot release. That sure looks like an epic battle for Coruscant right there. I can't wait to take space battles into my own hands.

the game looks great, dont get me wrong, the capital ships look amazing. My worry is that as more information gets outs, the more the game seems more like a C&C kind of game. When I first heard of thuis game way back when, I was so excited, not only because you can control fleets and ground forces, but the whole strategic side of things. That worries me a bit cause I am a strategic fan, the fights are gonna be awesome, its from the galactic map, thats where i am worried it wont live up to the hype...

No, in the live chat the developers said that they are still working on system specs. They did say they are trying to make it playable to as wide an audiance as possible.

I guess I never noticed how well the detail on Couruscant was. That's awesome !

I would like to see maybe Corellia, and Naboo. Though I think Couruscant is the one I'm looking forward to seeing the most.

after watching the special features of episode 3, the lava planet- lack of name for it right now...Well its really a moon of a planet. Yea thats what i got from seeing a clip of a huge planet with it right next to it like a moon. So the question gotta be asked, the 40+ planets all planets? or are there moons included in that as well? I dunno

Yavin IV is one of several moons orbiting the gas giant Yavin.

Endor, or the Sanctuary Moon as it's called, orbits a gas giant called Endor. Thus the term "Sanctuary Moon of Endor". Why it's called that though I'm not totally sure.

So no, the 40+ planets arn't all really planets per say.

Well, they did say they were going off of a concept similar to Lord of the Rings RTS game (when they first anounced it), that weirded me out because their big map wasn't all that spectacular. So I'm hoping the galactic map part of the deal is a bit better than that, but they might have just ment it in terms of the bonuses you get from the planets similar to the bonuses you get from taking over territories in the LOTR RTS game, dunno. I hope that it will be similar to Rome Total War in depth of the campaign map, I expect something much much more streamlined. It appeals to the "casual" gamers.

<rant>I don't like it how companies keep saying we want to appeal to the casual gamers so we'll streamline our features to be much simpler and end up losing the repeat RTS buyers and alienating fans of the genre by not trying to advance RTSes in any except in ways that appeal to the "casual" gamers. That's why the RTS genre has been slowing so rapidly in my opinion. They've alienated a lot of repeat buyers by throwing together a bunch of very similar packages that keep getting simpler and simpler...sorry done</rant>

I don't think the specs are that high, I expect more or less the same requirements as Rome: total war since they're both quite similar in the way they represent their units. And you have to remember, strategygames take for less our of your machine than shooters do...

I am hoping they use the LOTR idea when it comes to heroes, because as far as any RTS game goes, LOTR is a waste of money. Probably the most limited 'modern' game I have ever played and one - that didnt post a single actual true screenshot because most of those 'big scale' battles mentioned, you couldnt actual do.

The lava planet is named Mustafar. Like Jan said, not all the planets are technically planets.

ram isn't that expensive, I bought 512 MB for about $45, and as far as video cards go, I bought mine for $130.

My new comp

pentium 4 630 3.0 ghz 800 Fsb 2mb L2 cache
1 gig ram
160 gb sata (7200 rpm)
256 ATI radeon x600 se

I bet the graphix will start in the middle so you can turn them down if you have to but you could turn them up a bit so you can really push your machine

The only thing I really want to get is a new processor, but the one that pushed mine from 2.24 to 2.4 is $200, so I don't even want to think about how much a better one would cost.

Alright guys, let's get back on topic. This thread is about what planets do you hope to see, not your system specs.

*<star wars nerd: Borleias, a.k.a. Blackmoon. Part of the Pyria System. /star wars nerd>*

It'd be good as a core system close to Coruscant. I'd also like to see Balmorra (Imperial factory system), Kamino (Oceanic cloning world, the weather could look badass), Bothawui, Sullust, Kothlis, and Mon Calamari, among other planets.

I beat you ten to one that at least Wayland and Nar Shadaa will be included in EaW. They seem to be key planets.

I had never heard about nar shaada until I searched on SW.com. Then I started to wonder why I had never heard about it before. So it doesn't seem to be a very pivotal planet.

Nar Shaada is a frequent planet used in Star Wars video games. It is seen in the Jedi Knight series, and Kotor 2. It is also mentioned in novels.

Indeed Nar Shaada is mentioned quite a bit. A very pivitol world in the expanded universe. Smuggler's paradise of sorts. It wouldn't surprise me a ton to see it in the game now that you mention it. It seems to be one of the best supported EU planets by LA.

Do we know about how many planets are going to be on the galactic map? 20? 40? or what?

Delphi-pg over in PFF said a little over 40 but the official Petro site said 50+ so my guess is around 50.
