Sleheyron

413 posts in this topic

Might I ask: Will anyone on Sleheyron mention HK-47 or Yuthura Ban? The reason I ask is that Yuthura used to be a slave on Sleheyron who stabbed her master Omeesh the Hutt who enjoyed torturing his own slaves and she has escaped and HK-47 used to be the assassin droid of the most feared gangster on Sleheyron Bochaba the Hutt, HK killed up to 300 people in a year in Bochaba's service and cleared out at least two Hutt strongholds before the Exchange retaliated and had Bochaba gruesomely assassinated to the point HK firmly believes the residence of Sleheyron had pieces of Bochaba in their soup for weeks, interestingly, HK claims after Bochaba was assassinated a rival Hutt claimed HK with the rest of Bochaba's possessions and sold HK to a senator he often bribed. This could mean the Exchange on Sleheyron is lead by another Hutt.

 

Will anything related to the above be added to Sleheyron? Even as a mere Easter Egg?

Whether it will or not, does it matter too much?

 

If we are given this planet, as long as it functions in-game, has some sort of story, and looks good, the volume of native gameplay "content" isn't too important, imo... It will be the most fertile ground for add-on modding we have had in a long time, and things like your good ideas will come to fruition one way or another I imagine :)

So this is a very difficult thing to deal with, as it presents complications on several levels.

 

First of all, HK can essentially have no dialog here on Sleheyron due to a lack of a voice actor. It would be great if he could, but unfortunately that's just not the case. The same goes for Yuthura. So essentially neither of the characters tied to Sleheyron in the vanilla game can really have a large and lasting impact on Sleheyron. In addition, both character references to Sleheyron were not invented until after Sleheyron was cut.

 

HK's timeline is also an issue. If his previous visit to Sleheyron occurs only 1-2 years prior to the PC visiting Sleheyron, there's obviously a huge amount of Hutt turnover happening during that time. The information we have on the original planned plot seems to indicate that Sleheyron is more or less stable prior to the PC's arrival. It would be possible I guess to include many references to HK's activities, but widespread recognition of HK seems to be out of the question due to the voice actor issues.

 

I suppose that it is possible that the events happened in the same area as are creating and nobody knew that HK-47 killed all those people. He could have operated in a clandestine manner and nobody really knew his true function. This could lead to some more interesting back story and depth to the planet, as well as connection to the rest of the game. It's given me a few ideas. I'll have to think on this more.

 

I apologize for the slow progress. Work has taken a higher pace than normal and I've also been focused on a few other hobbies. But comments like these are helpful to get the wheels turning again.

Yuthura I imagine would have much less of an impact as she is only ever on Dantooine and Korriban VO or not. Perhaps in a Hutt Stronghold, a background NPC guard or something has a line of dialogue stating something like "I hope [Hutt] doesn't get assassinated like Omeesh did by that Twi'lek girl, without [Hutt] I'd have to become a freelance mercenary". A simple reference like that would work perfectly or maybe a Civilian line saying something like "I'm glad that slave girl gave Omeesh what he deserved". Though there is no specific date for when Yuthura was a slave so maybe the lines shouldn't sound too recent.

A user called UnusualCharacters does do HK-47 style voice overs. While HK won't have vanilla lines to use it would be possible to have new lines recorded by this actor for the mod.

 

 

Though I can understand why you wouldn't want to use that in your mod as of course you want this mod to feel like original game content and not like a mod.

The HK line about people eating pieces of Bochabba from their soup makes me believe that Sleheyron at the time at least had public food lines, as the Mandalorian Wars had just occurred it wouldn't be hard to believe that refugee's fled to Sleheyron and the sudden increase of population deflated the Sleheyron planetary budget causing millions homeless etc. Though, as Sleheyron is a Hutt controlled world this idea may not work. Perhaps since the Hutts couldn't manage Sleheyron the Exchange with its vast wealth smuggled food and aid to help the economy simply to insert itself in Sleheyron Hutt affairs to exploit the system for their own benefit.

 

 

Back to the whole food line thing, perhaps random citizen NPCs who walk around for background purposes say lines like "I hope the Hutt's don't start trouble with the Exchange again, don't know how they managed to do it, but the last something like that happened we had pieces of a Hutt in our rations for weeks".

On the bright side, your modding tools don't suddenly break thanks to an update like mine did, feel like a caveman now. I may ask more questions regarding the Cantina you previewed at a later date.

No apologies necessary. You (and Fair Strides) are doing this out of the kindness of your hearts, without asking for anything in return.

Wasn't this the same guy who voice Hk-47 in the Jedi masters mod? i remember how bloody good he did the impressions of Kristoffer Tabori to the point i thought it was him! he would be a good choice for the role. but of course that's up to the Author of the mod...

I find the chances of them being the same is highly unlikely, The Jedi Masters came out around 2009-2012 and UnusualCharacters comes off as a somewhat recent addition to the community though I guarantee UnusualCharacters is still a good option for HK Dialogue (He even does Atton dialogue)

Thanks for the kind words. I didn't work on the Jedi Masters. From what I remember, wasn't it a Microsoft Sam-esque computer voice that did HK in that one? Maybe it was an old version I watched on YouTube. I would be down to record any HK lines requested if the mod creators decide to go that route.

I want my oompa loompa now :(

 

 

The Grinch that stole Sleheyron, my greatest contribution to the planet Earth, cannot be made without this mods completion. My zero fans demand action.

Dashus called me last week, just to vent to me that this mod wasn't done yet. He was furious. I told him to suck an egg, but nevertheless.
