      Oh yeah. I guess I blocked that whole movie out. I'd suggest that it could have been filmed in advance, but that amount of forethought would be giving them too much credit.

      I understand blocking that movie out. That's why it hasn't joined the BluRay collection and never will.

      hahaha. Well, there was absolutely no forethought. JJ, the cast, and others have admitted that there was no plan. The fact they didn't give each film the proper time and... well anyway, it's obvious. I wish people would stop looking at the "good moments/concepts" and saying "it's all done well/perfect". It's not the moments, it's not about us OT or PT fans, it's not about Rey (or any female) being the lead character. The surface isn't the important part, it's what's underneath. Why and how were the moments reached and how do they connect? What respect for the characters from the OT and PT is shown? Why is x character (insert thing here)? THAT is what the issues are about. It's not about "what", it is (as is all things in life) about "why".

      This was a nice watch.

      I hope the truth comes to light and quickly. 

  3. Remember the days when the Status Update section wasn't dominated by one person?

    1. Sith Holocron

      Sith Holocron

      Just to make things a clearer now that others have had a chance to post Status Updates in the mean time, here's a chronological timeline of the posts.  I did the extra work for you because I know how much y'all appreciate that. glvciVD.png

  4. To the person uploading other people's mods: STOP IT!

    1. N-DReW25

      N-DReW25

      I also noticed that person, I'm not sure how or why but his comment and review sections where totally missing and funny enough when I downloaded his mods it turns out he uploaded empty .zip files.

    2. Sith Holocron

      Sith Holocron

      I should have said "persons" not "person".  Looks like we have two folks uploading things that aren't theirs.  However, the major offender has had the stolen mods hidden.  As a moderator, I am unable to take any further punitive action.  Folks would have to appeal to the Administrators for that.

      By the way: if anyone is in touch with Ferc Kast, please ask if they could reach out to me?

  5. Happy birthday,  @Logan23!

      Thank you!!

  6. I am planning way ahead for this year's Life Day display. Might anyone have a link to a 3 and 3/4 inch scale figure or statue of Santa Claus?  He'll be in the background so I won't need to pose his arms or anything.

    BTW, this display won't be on Tatooine this year which is your only hint about the in-universe location.

    If you missed last year's display, click here.

      I could print it for you (I have a resin printer now) but the cost of shipping it half way round the world would be pretty horrendous. Although given the time buffer I suppose it could go surface mail. Might just make it by Xmas, lol.

    3. Sith Holocron

      Sith Holocron

      Surface mail would be just fine, if you were kind enough to undertake this for me. This shouldn't go uncompensated so please PM what the shipping and material costs are when you the opportunity. 

    4. DarthParametric

      DarthParametric

      Ironically it seems like regular air mail (2-3 weeks) is actually around half the price of surface mail (2-3 months) currently from my USPS equivalent. I guess the plague has put international ocean freight at a premium.

      Edit: Even so, damn, looks like it would cost a pretty penny. Maybe around US$50 for shipping by the time you wrap and box it up so it doesn't get broken (cured resin tends to be brittle, kind of like glass). I'd suggest considering me a last resort if you can't find someone in the US.

  7. I'm looking for recommendations of soundtracks that I should look into on Steam.  Any suggestions?

    BTW, if you're looking for suggestions on what you can watch, you could always check out the M4-78 Documentary Playlist.

  8. Question: Does it make sense to leave reviews on mods when you can't use them (i.e. you don't have a non Xbox version of the game)?

      Reviews with ratings should be reserved for those who have seen the mod and tested it in-game, but (to some extent) there is nothing wrong with people expressing their thoughts, impressions, concerns about the mod based on screenshots and description on the mod page, I believe. However, perhaps, basing impressions on the screenshots of heavily-modded game is not the best way, if only the reviewer didn’t want to specifically express his impressions on the combination of several mods

  9. Merry Christmas! Get to watching the playlist

      #46 & #42 are still unavailable! but this is awesome, something I wanted to get my hands on when I was gathering material / research for my mod project and am glad to be able to see it's content finally. Merry Christmas.

    2. Sith Holocron

      Sith Holocron

      Oops - set them for PM rather than AM.  One is available now.  The other I set to go public in 7 minutes. Let comments on the videos you liked most.  And likes for all of 'em!

  10. Updates on the Christmas gift: There are 48 chapters, when including the hidden content. Some are very short.  The longest being over 9 minutes.  The first 15 have been uploaded.  Yes, I know the hidden content is what you're most looking forward to.

  11. I might have a good Christmas gift for you all this year.  Have you been good? Keep washing those hands and wearing those masks and Santa-Cron will leave something for you on his YT channel. (This will likely be better than a M4-78 documentary for most of you. )

      I'm going to watch all of your Youtube videos too, and get the Algorithm on your side. :)

      Condolences, SH. It's awful.

  14. Uploading a completely a new non-KOTOR video to my YT channel.  It's definitely an interesting artifact from 70's Britain.  Link to follow after it's up.

  15. Watch it until the end. Mandalorian, Season 2, Episode 1.

  16. Things are getting pretty weird around here.

    BTW, if you have saves for M4-78 EP, I'd like to have them.  Please note whether you used version 1.2, 1.3 (Steam), or 1.5.  Also list which mods you used as well (with links). Finally, did you have a LS or DS gameplay-through. Thanks.

     

    I'd post this in the Game Saves section but let's be honest, - most people don't check that section.

  17. Hey there.  Just found out tonight that a friend of 25 years has passed away. If you wouldn't mind, please hold off on any messages to me for the next couple of days.  I'd appreciate it.

      Thanks for the support folks.  The funeral will be on Tuesday but  . . . well, I'm getting there.

      Hope everything went decently yesterday then. It's never easy to lose a friend that's been around that long.

    4. Sith Holocron

      It didn't.  There was a hurricane yesterday and my state's governor declared a state of emergency.  No trips in the car.  So . . . couldn't get to the wake, service, or funeral.  I feel like I wasn't able to honor my friend's memory or be there for his friends and family.  In other news, I have a large problem with the documentary that I'm going to have to figure out which I won't go into here other to say the deadline is not a thing anymore and I'm going to have to figure out many things to do in order to make it. So I'm having a severe bout of depression right now.  I wouldn't expect much cheer from me for about a week.

  18. I have updated my Droid Testing Console Texture Upgrade mod to version 1.2.  I corrected a glitch in it. More details on the download page.

  19. It was time to get a larger hard drive to have all of the raw footage for the EP documentary.  Hopefully, this should be enough.

      Seagate is a decent brand for backup storage. And 8 TB is a lot of space.

  20. Oh my, folks.  Something interesting is gonna be uploaded here to the Download section in the near future.  No, it's not from me. When you see it, I think you'll know it.

      The answer to what the files in question are and the identity of the uploader may take a couple of days.   It's a little complicated.  However, I will link in this Status Update as to what the mod when it is uploaded. Trust me - you'll likely not need my cue.  It's that interesting.

    3. Mellowtron11

      I wonder if it's some long lost file from filefront or lucas forums.....

  21. Remember @Quanon?  I sure do but I apparently I forgot I had a text interview that could've gone in Stoney's M4-78 chapter.  As the models for the Archons are in both Stoney's version and in the EP, I may as well use the interview in the next chapter. Since Quanon has not been heard from in a long time and he no longer responds to emails, I'll need some one to "perform" his interview.  If that sounds like something that you might be interested in, please PM me.

      Didn't see the Stoney thing either. I raise the same objections though.

      I don't see an issue with someone else recording what another wrote as long as person ok with it and they read what the person wrote.

      I already gave my ok since I don't have recording access and I hate my recorded voice anyway.🥵

      Also he is stating ahead of time that someone was going to record the written words in place of author to me it's not an issue unless the author of said article doesn't want someone else to record it.

  22. Poll closes on the 15th. Get your vote in.

      Poll closed at midnight. 

  23. I've had folks say they were going to contribute to the documentary and I haven't seen any audio coming my way yet. Let me know via PMs of your current status as soon as you can, please. Thank you.

  24. I haven't done this since the LucasForums days but I've returned to doing folding@home. At least this way it'll feel like I'm doing something in this ongoing nightmare. Feel free to join me.
