Oh. Well then, I might to have to pull out if the plan is to get 2.2 out for the 22nd. I won't have access to the recording booth I did my lines in until the 18th or 19th. I could get all lines done in a few hours, but I'm not sure how that would work for you guys time wise.

Well we'll need to do more than one round, but 2.2 releases at the end of the month, so if you want to send stuff in for future consideration that'd be fine as well

I can't wait to put in for this. Is it alright if I do certain people as a way to show what I can do?

Hey guys, Its the last day that submissions are being accepted, but I wont to make a recommendation;

since the game is combat and military oriented, military veterans from various Navies, Armys and Marine(Naval Infantry) have ALOT of experience with military radio communications and jargon. It would add substance to what units in the game say. for example; stormtroopers calling out "We're pinned down! Request air/artillary support in Grid 9-Alpha!" or a Star Destroyer calling out while being pommeled "Where is our fighter support" or " Tie squadrons! Clear our airspace" or as the ship is exploding a final transmission such as "For the Alliance/Empire" or use kamakazi like calls such as "For the Emperor!" The New Order for 10,000 years!" or "For the New Order". I havent submitted because I dont have a voice for recording(lol) and no quality equipement.

These were just some thoughts and I cant wait for the  2.2 release!

Well to an extent, remember to that military protocols are different in a galaxy far far away sometimes compared to Earth's nations.(speaking as a vet myself) Some would work, but the vast majority of civis wouldn't get the jargon so it might defeat the purpose.

You are definitely correct, SOME real world jargon wouldnt work. Ive always abhored the "sqeakly cleaness" of most space sci-fi. I quess thats why I enjoyed Rouge One so much, showed the grittier side of star wars combat. also Id like to referece the 2004 Battlestar Galactica take on the marraige of Space opera and the adaptation of realworld terimology and so forth. refer to Finn in the Force Awakens refering to an "Air strike" when the Tie/SF flight began straffing the settlement on Jakku. Adapting recognizible terms to the game would in my opinion add something more than taking away. also remember that the character speak english/basic in the movies though the english lanquage hadnt evolved the sw universe. In real world, different nations use they're own jargo, which would be a "alien" to us as though it were from "A galaxy far, far away"
