I don't think it's a question of skill and talent. Well, I mean Holowan Labs isn't swarming with outstanding talent, but that's hardly what's holding us back, IMO.

I see it more as a question of focus and determination. I'm not sure many people on here would be able to stick to such a project for such a long time. 2 years Logan said? That's a long time to be working on one project. Imagine the tedium...

Not to mention it's kind of hard to organize/maintain teams over the internet. Certainly possible, but difficult.

No, it's certainly not stopping things from being made. It doesn't help outstanding things to be made, though...

Certainly, the stamina required is fairly high, especially given the amount of very dull, fiddly work that large-scale modding often involves. The number of .git co-ordinates I've plugged...

And that's before we get into fun things like when the orientation/bearing is wrong, or you miscalculate the amount of space required for a placeable...

I'd say two years for something the size of a total conversion is ambitious, TBH, and you're right that very few can or will stick it - in many ways Holowan is a graveyard of overstretched ambitions. There are dozens of threads promising as much or more than logan or DV and with far less to show for it which disappeared usually within a month.

Possible, yes, but in the way that going to Mars is possible. Or Alpha Centauri...

Tell me about it! I can't tell you how many failed conversion or partial conversion threads I've seen within the 4 months I've been here so far....

...about 5, I think.

I think you've just described one of the circles of Modder's Hell

I've done some module work -nothing so fancy as a reskin or new model- and damn, I gave up after creating 2 and a half...

It would be very tedious to do, but amazing if a good team could be thrown together...

IF there is a KOTOR 3 and its set after K2 then it should be about Revan and the Exile's journy into the Unknown Regions, did the Exile find Revan, did they succeed or fail against the True Sith Empire?, maybe its because of them it took a extra 300 years for them to invade Republic Space. All of these could be answered in a K3.

it might not even be possible to use the name at all, due to copyright sadly. Miracles can happen tho re a possible such project. Miracles do sometimes happen.

have to admit, i'd be really disappointed if a new kotor was announced only to find it's a prequel to the first one.

the story needs resolution, not further setup.

Cool idea and all, but if I saw a Kotor 3, I would want it to actually explain what happens to Revan in the unknown regions and try to find a trace of him. I think if they should make a prequal, it should be a seperate game or even a campaign in the next installment of battlefront.

Helpful! 
I can picture nothing more disapointing than if a community mod actually came to be, and 6 months into working on it an announcement was made that a real KOTOR3 was coming out.
