Posted by Sith Holocron on 14 December 2017 - 05:40 AM

Are we able to nominate Community Member of the Year like last time?


Community Member of the year can wait til January for sure :D


We'll have the vote for that topic in January. Look for a thread on that topic then.


#61173 RAD Tools Crashing - Need Help

Posted by Sith Holocron on 09 December 2017 - 03:53 PM

Aren't the Steam versions already up converted?




#61171 New Landing and Take-Off Videos

Posted by Sith Holocron on 09 December 2017 - 03:48 PM

I just watched the TSL landing/takeoff videos again, and wow the quality really is terrible. We must be to the point now where it's time to re-render all those as some sort of large group project. But in terms of the skybox, it's very orange.


The actual animation would not be terribly difficult per say, just time consuming.


I'd be up for pitching in with that sort of thing. The animation, anyway. But the game's Ebon Hawk model is of lower quality than the cinematic ones, so I'd say that would be needed before anything.


Well, the others are equally bad / low quality so I don't see the point in doing only some cutscenes. But let's not discuss this in this thread. If someone wants to start such a project, he/she now knows that there are others who'd help and can create a thread for it.


I've made a request for something like this before, albeit with a much smaller scopeThis request would be for all of the landing and take off scenes in the games. I've got a suggestion for readers of this thread: please leave this thread for the folks that'll actually be working on the landing and take off videos. I'm sure they'll ask for your input if and when they need it. Helpful things to mention would likely be what sort of expertise you could offer for such a project.

(Modders quoted above, let me know if I need to adjust the wording of this initial post. PM me with suggestions. Admins may make alterations to this post without asking.)


#61166 Save Hakra WIP

Posted by Sith Holocron on 09 December 2017 - 11:58 AM

 

The files only mention him as man28_wimp... ahaha.

I looked it up on Wookieepedia before replying to DP and you.  Nothing comes up there for "Hakra"

#61145 [WIP] High quality skyboxes

Posted by Sith Holocron on 08 December 2017 - 05:48 AM

I like how you can make out more detail in the third one, but I agree with Parametric, colour's definitely better in the middle one


I think the middle one is closer to where it needs to be, personally.


I think the middle one looks great.


I agree with this.


#61110 Merchant Square Crash?

I believe I've had this problem before and found an answer.


Are you going to share or do you plan to leave us in suspense? ;)


#61071 Disciple and the cut-content Holocron Quest!

Posted by Sith Holocron on 03 December 2017 - 02:22 PM

Seeing as one of our newer members has posted about 11 requests in this section recently, I've decided to post one of my long time favorite requests now.  Even though this was a blog entry previously.  (You may as well just respond to this rather than the blog now though.)

 

Disciple and the Holocrons . . . that sounds like a bad KOTOR cover band, doesn't it? Anyway . . .

 

As most of you know, there's some cut content in The Sith Lords regrading "lost holocrons" and Disciple's quest to find them all. During the quest you'd find several of them - both Jedi Holocrons and Sith Holocrons. You could gain force powers from the holocrons. It was a shame that it was unreleased as it actually gave you something to actually do with Disciple - a character that racks low on the NPC character likability scale.

 

And yes, there are sound files for this.

 

 

I hereby present a challenge: Using some or all of the lines in the above video, create a feasible mission and dialogue tree that would enable the Disciple and your Exile to complete that cut quest.  And then, release a TSLRCM compatible mod.

 

May the Force be with you.

#60919 M4-78: The History of Droid World

Posted by Sith Holocron on 27 November 2017 - 03:25 AM

Just a little update . . . 
 
We already have folks contributing their (audio) parts to the next chapter.  I'm still waiting on some people - no rush, fellas.  Of course, I'll have to record my stuff as well.
 
I have one line for the next chapter that needs to be read out in a very obnoxious way.  (The sort of obnoxious that makes you want to repeatedly slap the person that said it.)  Do you think that sounds like fun?  If so, send me a PM entitled "I want to be annoying" if you'd like to audition.  If I don't get enough (or any) auditions, I'll just read this particular line myself in the style of the Chamberlain character from The Dark Crystal.

#60813 EA is in trouble.

Posted by Sith Holocron on 19 November 2017 - 02:23 AM

I don't know, I've never played Overwatch. But I'm sure that it's a better option than Battlefront II.

TBH, you seem to have a lot of faith on things that you don't know.  I would suggest doing at least some cursory research on Overwatch's loot boxes before recommending them.  Like here and here, perhaps?

 

However, perhaps I have the wrong read on the situation.  What do the rest of you think?




#60803 EA is in trouble.

Can you give me more details about a game cracking consortium?

Go to PM's on this subject. No, not with me.


#60794 EA is in trouble.

Posted by Sith Holocron on 18 November 2017 - 08:58 AM

That's the game I'll play, if I do, just to be a turd finstler.


What's a finstler?

I - like Domino5555 - also don't know who (or what a) CPY is. As I refuse to purchase the game however, this one is less compelling than the "finstler" inquiry. LOL


#60786 EA is in trouble.

Posted by Sith Holocron on 18 November 2017 - 12:11 AM

Okay, suppose that we fix the progression system, so that it is more in favor of the consumers, than in the publishers. What then?

What is this "we" you refer to?  Never lump me in with those EA soul suckers!  (Unless they start paying me, of course.)




#60781 EA is in trouble.

Posted by Sith Holocron on 17 November 2017 - 09:04 PM

I don't think that even EA is stupid enough to return to pay-to-win in Battlefront II.


Betting on stupidity is usually a safe bet.

 I'm going to give EA the benefit of the doubt

After shutting down Maxis, Mythic, Bullfrog, Origin, Westwood, Dreamworks Interactive, Phenomic, BlackBox Games, Pandemic, Playfish, NuFX, and Visceral - they no longer will ever get the benefit of the doubt from me. 

 

The onus is on them to prove it to us.  If you're going put your money down, make them make it worthwhile to you.  

 

Edit: Technically, Visceral was created as an in-house studio.  However, EA did shut them down so they stay on my list.

The latest news is in. EA temporarily removes micro transactions. 
 
AN UPDATE ON STAR WARS BATTLEFRONT II


This quote from the linked page doesn't fill me with confidence. (Emphasis mine.)
 

The ability to purchase crystals in-game will become available at a later date, only after we’ve made changes to the game. We’ll share more details as we work through this.
