Weapon armaments (Spoilers!)

In the original game, stormies were issued the E11, and any imp officers were issued with blaster pistols, in JO, they were issued with repeater guns or the merrson or that shotgun type weapon.

What im tryin to get at is, in later levels, will you arm the stormies with mortars or repeaters as well as the E11 or is that not in the spirit of the original game ?

You should do this, this would add more of a challenge to the game Stormies with Mortars yeah and repeaters this should happen especially seeing you get onto to later levels you get better guns but the Stormies don't go for it!

In the super hard difficulty level, you should add this element of gameplay. As well as some AT-STs and Rodians, Weequays etc. That's what I think the 4th difficulty level should be.

i think that if it could be done, it would seriously be a better game, more of a challenge

stick

i think that the mod should be as close to the original as possible, ie no new stuff like what was proposed above. stormies had E-11s, and it should stay that way, no enemy in the game had the mortar, or repeater for that matter (i think).


Okay, for brevity's sake:

There is a fourth difficulty level for JO! Use that to put in stormies with new weapons... I don't want the original 3 altered in anyway ImmolatedYoda. I just said it'd be cool for the hardest setting to have those things.

I'm talking about full release! Not demo...
Later levels should implement that on the 4th difficulty level instead of 50 health no shields deal...

No, shooting tons of stormies with blasters is WAY HARD without a lightsaber. So, the HARD difficulty level of DF is going to be HELL! Plus, there are some enemies with powerful guns and detonators you know. HINT: DARK TROOPERS, BOUNTY HUNTERS, AND REE-YEES!

i was talking about what michael and the other people before you said. and yes, a fourth difficulty level with that stuff would be pretty cool, but i would be content with what is planned for the mod ie 3 levels of difficulty

It would be an extra. And having them with those weapons is less realistic for those who think it is. Stormies are issued an E-11. They don't get high tech explosive guns.

You know your a SW freak when you refer to stormies as real and have standards for them
Oh yeah, let's not put ALL THESE DAMN IDEAS posted all the time. I'd like to keep talk simple so not to overwhelm these MOD makers. I like to see progress, then maybe set in some new ideas. GOT IT?

Your ideas don't limit the progress of this mod, ya know. Just because you give us an idea, doesn't mean we go off right that second and put it in game. We are doing the basics first and then we will probably come back one day and look at these posts and think "cool, that's a nice idea" and stick it in. But for now, posting ideas does in no way slow the progress of this mod down

So carry on! Keep posting these ideas!

I'm not saying we'll reject them - we'll take note of them and perhaps implement some of them down the line, but for now our main target is to get the framework of the mod in place - once that is done we can get down to work on the extras

so the weapons in this mod will be the ones in jk2? cause in df tehre were a bunch of different weapons.
does this mean that kyle cant punch and will have to use that wimpy stun baton/
i miss the concussion rifle in df and jk1. that was a scary weapon in the hands of the trandoshan. sigh.....


It's my ILLUSION!

um

i dont know about the demo, but i think that no code has been changed so far, which means that no weapon changes yet. however, the final version is supposed to have the original DF weapons

Yes, the final will have original weapons.
technically so will the demo but since the only 2 guns in the demo are in JO and DF all was done was a remodeling of the 2 available guns

I'd have thought some more varied Imperial enemies would be good in the later levels. The problem with those in DF was that in the end every enemy was using the E-11, and it would have been a good idea to throw some Repeater and Mortar wielding fiends in the player's way. It'd also mean there wouldn't have to be as many enemies to keep the challenge up.

DF has the prototype of the Repeater Mark 1 with blue bolts. JK and MotS has the finalized Mark 1 with yellow bolts. JO has the Mark 2, a heavier rifle, so they DO have to remake the repeater rifle if that is what you were suggesting, pokemona.

That one guy you fight, the first boss at the end of level 11

spoiler:
In the FAQ, you say you will be upgrading Fett's AI to fight more like Jango. Besides rolling around and flying more like Jango, will he also get new weapons?
One giant missle from his backpack, flame throwers, wrist missles, melee wrist blades, wrist whipcord, and his real gun would be cool. I know you're striving for the original feel of the game, but I really think that his real gun would be a better replacement than the repeater he got. It can fire like a repeater, it should just look like his EE-33 or whatever its called.
Also, a cutscene idea. After finishing Fett off, there should be a scene where part of the docking bay's wall falls upon Boba who is on his knees. The viewer watches as the Crow flys away with TIEs in hot pursuit, but then the camera focuses upon the rubble heap to see Boba's arm pop out with fingers moving.


What do you think??? (And Temujinn, when you read this don't whine about me asking to much of them, it is just a suggestion of how to improve upon what they already said they'd do. New cutscenes and improved AI for this boss).

What are you saying? You turned my brain to mush again...
I think that the AI I said above would prove for a really fun, instant classic mod level.

spoiler:
I can't wait to fight Fett on a Coruscant that looks like as it is seen in the movies!!!

Fett really had a repeater? hmm..ill have to play the game again. i hate it though that fett is at the end of the ISB level, its kinda long with that damn vault...yeah, an added cutscene like that might be cool, or you see him sometime later in an easter egg, or the Slave I takes off of coruscant after you do

That's what I thought, and USE spoiler boxes, Michael...

I know that idea is cheezy, but that what makes it cool like you said. I like ImmolatedYoda's idea as well.

spoiler:
I read in a previous post he had a repeater, and like you said the vault was so long (and even I forgot how to get past it) that I really don't feel like double checking... Anyone who does remember how to crack the vault, why don't you double check Fett's armament and tell Darth and whoever is making Coruscant level

Fett just flies around, shooting missles at the player at varying speeds. He's the only enemy in the game who shoots while moving, and also the only one to get stuck against walls all the time.
Not a repeater in sight.

OK then...

I still want all I suggested above to make him more of a boss. And with extra lives as bacta tanks, it should be TO easy without an upgrade. Same goes for the other boss at the end of the game. He needs a weapon upgrade or something if ELs are Bacta Tanks.

Adding his own gun to Fett shouldnt be too much trouble, you can put that in..and perhaps a cutscene of him withdrawing after hes defeated..
