  • Have you had any questions about the mod that you'd love answered?

Sure I'll shoot.

1: Are the main contributors to the mod happy with how it turned out? Additionally, what are all your reactions to the wildly varying opinions of the mod?

2: Plans for 1.6 or is 1.5 the end product?

3: Anything that got cut/changed from the original mod plans that we don't know about?

Thanks for the reply, @Bovolt!  I'll make sure that @Hassat Hunter and @zbyl2 know about those questions so they can get back to me - with a recording hopefully.  As for the first part of question 1, you'll have to wait and see... ;)

As far as updates, I have recently a number of submissions but most of them are done being converted into animated walk and talks by TSL avatars now, I think.  However, one of my contributors kept sending in more and more installments so this made the video making portion of this . . . complicated. However, as I finally have a day off, I'm ready to split up the swaths of dialogue.  This will involve cleaning up the various pops and hiss on the audio, splitting the audio into smaller pieces so each line can be spoken by the avatar, normalizing the volume as the contributor started yelling for some reason, making a document so DV can create a lip sync for the avatar. It's a bit time consuming but hopefully, it will make the final product more fun to watch.  I mean, there's only so much of me you can listen to.  (Ask my wife!)

So I got my next contribution and this one's a reveal of sorts.  After the poll is done, I'll merge this thread with the main documentary thread.

So Stoney reviews M4-78 EP.  However, he doesn't have capability to record dialogue so he sent me a Text to Speech WAV file and a transcript.  I was wondering, would you folks rather have that or someone else recording the dialogue for him?

Or in the tradition of LF, do you prefer the noncommittal answer of Yoda?

Poll closed.  I have contacted a VA to perform Stoney's script when he able to do so. Thanks for voting!

So just to give you all an update on the documentary . . .

@DarthVarkor has been making very nice videos for use in the documentary. Those videos will both be released separately complete (with one minor exception by request of the contributor) and excerpts of the videos will be in the documentary itself.  DV has made a few of these videos so far.  (I've shared DV's videos using each contributor's audio back to the each contributor.  For the time being though, DV is going to be busy until his own project premieres on YouTube.

This shouldn't be a cause for alarm but rather a sigh of relief for those that haven't had the chance to get their audio (and transcripts) handed in to me.  You've received a reprieve!  (Even though I've never asked for a deadline because all know how deadlines worked out for Obsidian, you may might feel less stress.)

So contributors: Hand in your stuff when you're ready - you know who you are - and everyone check out DV's premiere on the 20th of June!  And if you'd like to give me an update in lieu of the materials, I'll take that too in a PM.

So here is a weird moment for me today.

I am currently cutting up a large MP3 file to turn each sentence into separate mono WAV files so they can be animated.  I'm also removing dead space and removing hemming and hawing. The contributor's subject is splicing. So I'm splicing a splicer talking about splicing. Is that too meta or what?

You splice the splicer's talk about splicing so it can become the spliciest splice in the... universe?

A beginning is a very delicate time. Know then, that it is the year 10191. The known universe is ruled by the Padisha Emperor Shaddam IV, my father. In this time, the most precious substance in the Universe is the splice. The splice extends life. The splice expands consciousness. The splice is vital to space travel. The Spacing Guild and its navigators, who the splice has mutated over four-thousand years, use the orange splice gas, which gives them the ability to fold space. 

Oh wait...  Wrong meeting
