We gave a percent of completion for the minimod to the members on our forums.

Update: My Friends Called me Roger
As much as I'd like to have a link to the minimod for you right now, I can't say that I do. We are very, very close to completion, which brings up this next point.

We are currently short of our beta tester needs. This is due to the dissappearances of Videoteck, SWLovr and DragonShadow. Also, InsaneGolfer recently joined the team as a coder, so congrats to him, as well as the rest of the team's condolences. Therefore, we will again be searching for one more beta tester, though we will not be picking right away.

We also have a few more pictures for you.
We start off with Commander Cody, a Republic hero.

This was modelled by Dr. Nick

Next comes the B-1 Battle droid, also modelled byDr. Nick.

And finally, the CIS scout bike, the STAP, again modelled by Dr. Nick (don't worry, there will be a droid on it).

We have recieved some complaints that we seem to be focusing only on Fall of the Republic (AKA R3). This is not true. Dr. Nick is mainly focusing on the Fall of the Republic, though he is modelling some Imperial Civil War (AKA R2) and Empire of the Hand (AKA R1). Meanwhile, I am focusing mainly on Empire of the Hand, specifically the... Empire of the Hand, actually. RedCommodore should be returning to the team before the 20th and helping me finish off the R1 models.

For those who haven't heard, we are adding another release. This release contains.... wait and see . However, I will tell you that it contains three playable factions and Admirals already know what it is, and what they are. Don't worry, this will not interfere at all with the development of Empire of the Hand, Imperial civil war, and Fall of the Republic though it will tie up some loose ends and expand on R1-3 material.

Lastly, exactly one month from today the mod will have it's first birthday, so check the forums for that.

Happy 11 months and counting,
The Thrawn's Revenge Team

Yep, that's right. Today the mod turns one (1) year old.

As in just about every other update, we will be showing pictures, but first we have a few things to mention.

First off the minimod. The minimod will only only be linked to from our forums for about a week, this way we can make sure we have everything rooted out, and then on the fourteenth I will submit it to filefront and post the link in the other threads we have. Keep in mind this is just a minimod, not the whole thing. Many skins and models in this release will change before the final release of Empire of the Hand. Before you start downloading, I suggest you finish reading the update.
If you encounter any bugs, please post them in the tech support forums.
Link to the thread with the link to Thrawn's Revenge v0.5

Next, a bit of a Thrawn's Revenge: Empire of the Hand development status update:
We are nearly done modelling and rigging for this release, with coding and voiceovers following close behind. However, skinning and mapping is going much slower due to our lack of skinners and mappers. We aim to have this version in beta stage near the end of the summer, assuming we get at least one mapper and skinner (Do not quote me on this, it's just an estimate).

Now, the renders...

First off we have the CIS Munificient.

(The CIS logo and stripes will be done as team colour)

Next is the CIS Recusant.

Next is the Republic AT-RT

Now the Death Star Prototype


Wild Karrde

Eta 2 Actis Light Interceptor

Errant Venture

Nebula Class Star Destroyer

That's all for now,
Yub Squadron

Nice models. I was just thinking you guys should put advertisements on the Venture, like "Eat at Dex's Diner." LOL, it would drive the Remnant mad.

Well, on the contrary, a nice neon sign on the Venture would work well. How about copying those classic "once famous" casino signs? Its a party ship afterall.

Hello all. A while ago we posted a poll on what you wanted to be in an update, and the Empire of the Hand won with 39% of the votes, and a trailer following that with 13%. Therefore, this update will focus mainly on the empire of the Hand.

First though, there have been a few changes to the staff. We would like to welcome Darth dino to the team as a coder, and Nezill to the team as a skinner. Since joining they have both been a great help in the development of the mod. Tyrant has also joined the administration staff as a coleader. Congratulations to him on his promotion, keepup the good work!

We have also completed the minimod's full version. We would like to thank everyone who reported bugs from the public beta. This version has fixed many bugs and errors, as well as replaced a few skins with much better ones.
Download the Minimod

Now, for the renders.

And finally, this is a Chiss and planet in the unknown regions, mapped by Arbiter.

I'll be posting a galactic map featuring the planets we have shown in the general discussion area soon as well.

The next update in July will most likely feature a trailer for the Empire of the Hand.

I don't know Jack about the Empire of the hand, but that Clawcraft bears a lot of resemblance to a CIS droid Tri-Fighter. Any connection?

"The beauty and genius of a work of film may be reconceived, though its first material expression be destroyed; a vanished fiction may yet again inspire the screenplay-writer; but when the last individual of a race of living directors, of artists, breathes no more, another heaven and another earth must pass before such a one can be again." -William Beebe, modified in memorial of the twentieth century

Clawcrafts have been rendered that way for several years. Check around. They images for the clawcrafts were in circulation before the Tri-Fighter came about. The first mention of the Clawcrafts was in the Dark Tide series released in 2000 where as the first mention of the Tri-Fighters came in the book "Jedi Trial" which came out in 2004.

The connection?
The empire and that's about it.

The tri-fighter was an attempt to bridge the style gap between the movies.
The claw craft was an attempt to show the influences of imperial technology combined with the ingenuity of the Chiss.

Yellow, sorry for the long gap between updates.

First off, we're still working on the trailer, so it won't be in this update. Nezill has added several wallpapers to the media section of the site, which he has remade for those who haven't noticed. We're currently almost done with space in R1, and getting close with land. Then we will be finishing off the other features and redoing whatever needs it. Slornie, Willy Wonka and Wal-Mart Shoplifter are the beta testers.

We would like to welcome Fuzzy.Wazzy and Daft_Vader to the team as a concept artist and a rigger respectively.

First off, this is a render of Delta Squad. From left to right, Fixer, Scorch, Boss and Sev. Modelled and Skinned by Dr. Nick.
Click here. Image is very high rez.

Next, the animations for Delta. Boss, to be specific, also by Dr. Nick.

A fairly large update today. First off, we have a new staff member, Adthrawn. He is a mapper, and is currently working on the Tatooine land map, so welcome to the team Adthrawn.

We have also reopened beta applications. If you would like to be a beta tester, email ThrawnsRevenge@gmail.com (subject: Beta Tester ) with your application, or post in this thread. Please follow the format of the example application in that thread. applications will stay open until Thrawn's Revenge: Empire of the Hand reaches beta stage, which isn't that far away.

Next, the renders. The skins on the MC80 wingless type, MC90 and MC80b are all placeholders until we can finish the final skins for them, as it is they are editted versions of the Mon Calamari Cruiser that is in EaW. Also, the Ascendancy has been redone (see below) we all greatly prefer this version to the old one.

We are also in need of another mapper or two. If you are interested in the position, post here with examples of your work.

Lastly, Nezill has made another wallpaper and signature.

and the wallpaper can be found in the media page.

January Update part one of three: http://gutr.swrebellion.com/forums/i...16392.html#new

Yellow people. This is the first of the weekly updates that we will be doing almost every Saturday this year. These updates won't be quite as big as the monthly ones in 2007, but over the month there'll be about the same amount of content.

Some of you may have noticed the recent update to the site. This has been in the works for a while now, and so far has resulted in the addition of a staff page, a render gallery, a screenshot gallery and a planet layout gallery. The factions page, which you can get to through the information page will be updated with links to pages with faction descriptions, unit lists and some other information as we complete them. We would also like to welcome Satan's Spartan and Enceladus to the team as mappers.

This week we have two new planet layouts for you. Nkllon, which was mapped by Chaosredsock and will be in Release Two and Thyferra which was mapped by Enceladus.

Sorry for the late update (again).

First we'd like to welcome Ages of Star Wars to the site. They replaced GU as our site buddy seeing as it is lead by our Modeller/Skinner/Animator Dr. Nick and our Skinner Kalo, as well as having Enceladus, Daft, and myself on their team, so we mix together pretty well.

Now, the renders. These are both some mid-level Rebellion units... The first is the Alderaanian War Frigate and the second is the Nebulon-B2 Escort Frigate. We decided to go witha different kind of layout for these, so tell us what you think.

Thats all for this week, next week is some ingame screens of EotH units and Endor.,

Hey and welcome to the fourth and final February update of 2008.

First thing, we really need more mappers to help me and Enceladus map the planets and skirmish maps for all releases. If you have experience with the map editor, apply here or email me at Thrawn's Revenge@gmail.com with examples of your work. Land maps are preferable.

Some more stuff from Fall of the Republic this week.

We've also prepared a bit of Q/A for this update. Yes, we got this idea from AoSW a week or so ago, but since the AoSW staff and ThrRev staff have pretty much the same people on it, we'll all live.

Q: How many planets are in the mod
A: Release One has 64 planets, including several from the original game, however almost every planet has been remapped, with the exception of Bespin. The maps are now much bigger. By the final release, there will be roughly 170 planets in the mod.

Q: What is this Admiral's Lounge you mention in some updates?
A: The Admiral's Lounge is a section on our forums for active posters. It contains lots of unreleased information, renders, unit lists, etc.

Q: When are you releasing?
This is an example of something you'd find in the Admiral's Lounge.

Q: What will the population cap be in the mod?
A: 85 for space, 20 for land.

Q: Will the Yuuzhan Vong and Hapes Consortium ever be playable factions?
A: Stay tuned.

Q: How many mod team members are there?
A: There are currently 10 people on the development team, and 3 people on the testing team.

Q: Can I be a tester?
A: You can apply at ThrawnsRevenge@gmail.com, or on our forums.

What criteria do you use when deciding what units/heroes to include/exclude from the mod?
1. Would it be useful?
2. Is it unrealistically powerful/large/unbalanced?
3. Could we accurately represent it ingame?
4. How canon is it?

Q: Can i suggest a unit/hero for the mod, or have you already decided on all the content?
A: We've already written up unit lists, but these are never completely final, so if you have any suggestions we'd love to hear them, just don't be insulted if they don't make it in.

Q: Are you going to be adding in more music and VO's?
A: Yes. For example, the Fall of the Republic minimod we released had new VOs for Grievous. We currently need some people to help do the VOs for units and heroes, so if you'd like to try out for that email me at ThrawnsRevenge@gmail.com

Are ships going to be realistically scaled?
For the most part. They won't be 100% realistic, but they're be as close as we can get them unless they take away from the gameplay.

Thats all for this week. March First is layouts of Umika and Millayna.
