In my experience (having created my own video-games using the Beyond Virtual game engine), development takes anywhere from three weeks (provided you and an entire team have some ready-made models, and an unlimited amount of time from sun-up to sun-down) to 2 years +. It all depends on the level of work that you put into your game. If you follow the E.A. style, you can do it in one day (pirate some models from turbo-squid, and mush some levels out). Personally, I tend to churn out levels (characters, items, etc.) in about 16 hours (that's total time spent on the level. 16 hours for me generally translates into about 3-6 days).

So essentially, version 1 is just RC with ARCs instead, and version 2+ will be an all new thing?

Some can be easy to genericize, like the Acclamator Star Destroyer - instead of it being the Prosecutor, it could be the Naboo or Insurmountable...

Just a heads up after noticing the discussion in your social group -

It's doubtful that you'll be able to use the soundtracks from the Star Wars Trilogies in your mod, as that's infringing copyright law. Therefore, any mod released that contains the soundtrack from any copyrighted source would be illegal.

would modifying a song like a remix be illegal?

I'm not 100% on my copyright law, but I think yes, modifying a song would also be illegal.

There's nothing stopping you from adding the soundtrack for your own personal use, but adding it into a mod and then distributing it is definitely illegal.

I think it depends how how much/far its remixed. Something like a montage may not necessarily pass the test.

Are you sure Astor? 'Cause there's a bunch of mods that use Star Wars Music. To name a few - AEM over at EAW Files, Star Destroyer II Map over at JK Files...

I'm pretty sure, yes. And if those mods are using the Star Wars soundtrack, then they're infringing the copyright.

Now, I know what you're thinking - LucasFilm/Arts hasn't had those mods removed, so they obviously don't mind. What's more likely is that they don't know they even exist.

I'm not trying to rain on anyone's parade here, but I think it's important that you know that the inclusion of the soundtrack is on shaky legal ground at best.

Of course - it's one of the game's original assets - using the soundtrack from the game itself is fine, as far as I know.

You're not "Raining on our Parade." I personally, am really glad that you brought this up, and being a composer I sympathize with the copyright issues. We really should make sure it's legal for us to use the Soundtrack Music/Remixes before we put them in. I'll to some research into this, as I have a neighbor who worked as a head-hunter for ILM. He should know.


EDIT: Ok, we now have official Main/loading screens. Comments?

Well, there's a HailFire droid in-game already... but unless we figure out how to export/import models, I'm afraid we won't be able to do those. However, you can rest assured knowing that I will try my hardest to figure out how to do that.

There's a Hailfire droid in the game! Where is it? Also will someone be able to reskin the DC-15s side arm blaster to look like the commando pistol used by Arcs and make it a new weapon?

If I remember correctly, I think there's two spider droids on Geo... One of them is outside the entrance to the battle droid factory (I think, it may be the entrance to one of the Seperatist Core Ships).

The hailfire is a static mesh like the spider droid. Check it out in UnrealEd.

It's not going very well. If you want to check out what me have so far Hooper, you should join the ARC trooper mod team social group.

EDIT: Oh, I forgot you're already in the group. If you're not much of a modder you can help with ideas like me. We have a lot of cool stuff so far.

Now I know it's been a couple of months since we've posted even the barest hint of an update but...




You know you want it...

Anyhoo, on an update tone:

In case anyone was wondering the mod's not dead yet. We'll be handing over the demo-version of the first comparing level on Christmas. Our gift to the community. Alas, I can't give you all of the details (untill after the demo is release. I don't want to spoil your fun), but I can say that We've made significant progress. You can Expect to see screenshots, Enemys, and a download on Christmas Day, 2009.

We apologize for the lateness of the beta, as we are experiencing some difficulty uploading it. You can expect to see it soon. Please keep in mind that this is the beta version, so there are a few bugs.
