It is a perilous time for the galaxy now that an exhaustive civil war has taken a hold of the Empire’s gaze. The treacherous group of traitors, under the name the Rebel Alliance, have struggled for the past five years in the efforts of destroying the imperial government in hopes of returning the peace of the old Republic.
Amid the turmoil, the Emperor has filled his mind with the destruction of the Alliance so he may continue his Dark Reign on the greatest throne of power anyone has ever known. The Alliance has come to its near destruction as the Dark Lord hunts down the remaining leaders of the Rebels.
On a diplomatic mission to Alderann, the Tantive IV has been captured by the Executor, Darth Vader’s flagship, while a member of the Shadow of the Empire, a secret society of Force Sensitive agents under the direct command of Vader, searches effortlessly for the defector Princess Leia Organa…

Wow, this looks incredible! I've just recently started my own little OT mod (though much smaller) only to be thwarted by this! So, is this kind of a story behind the OT? Needless to say, I'm excited for this as well. It's always great to see the announcement of a big mod with already considerable progress.
This is the story of a 501st Clone War Veteran who is now serving with Vader and his secret task force of Force Sensitive agents. It will follow the cannon as best as possible and will bring you to a final confrontation with the Emperor and Vader (like I said it will follow the cannon as close as possible).
is it a new vader model or is it that guys who's name i cant remeber Avo or somthing like that
Avol made the original Vader model, but I wasn't aware that he had given anyone permission to use his model in a mod before he left into the great unknown.
If it is his, then I don't think you'd be able to release the mod with his Vader model in it.
Are you one of those poor Macintosh gamers that are in the possession of Empire at War, yet because of the scarcity of Mac players out there you have nobody to play against? If you are, PM me if you want to set up a game.
Thanks Logan, I'm purposely making some things revolve around the movies but for the most part you'll be able to experience a whole new story with vastly different plots from that of the original KOTOR games.
I'm trying to make it unique and allow room for expansions later on.
Since you're trying to follow canon as close as possible, I should point out that the Tantive IV was not captured by the Executor - it doesn't appear until Episode 5. You'll remember that it was just a regular Star Destroyer that appeared at the start of Episode 4.

Well when I started the making this thing back in maybe November I wasn't aware of that and now that I already have the Executor set up to be the invading ship, I'm just going to leave it because of the events that happen on it. It just makes sense that it is Vader's Flagship because you'll be revisiting it later on.
Well when I started the making this thing back in maybe November I wasn't aware of that and now (...) I already have the Executor set up to be the invading ship.
Have you actually done the Executor's outer hull? Because if you did not, there is little to no differences between the interior of such ships (except for the scale wich I assume will not be whole according to "the size of that thing").
No, there's really no way you're going to be able to see the ship. But like I said earlier the events that happen inside the Executor just feel like they have to be on Vader's Flagship so it'll take some convincing to persuade me to change it to the Devestator.
Well, that's not going to be hard: before the executor was built, Vader had another flagship: the "Devastator". When the Tantive IV was captured, the Executor wasn't build yet. So I guess if you feel those events should happen on his flagship, the Devastator is the ship you want...
-DK- - While I normally behead TC ideas in their cribs, this shows promise. I approve.
Thanks DK, I can use all the support you can give.
Holty1-5 - Will there be more Party members
There most certainly will be, I still have to create them yet. The only reason why those three are the only ones you see is because I haven't been able to get started on the other planets with the exception of Coruscant part II.
There will be I think at least 10 companions and I have even figured out a system to use more than 10!
