Star Wars Discussion / Apeiron Kotor mod canceled
« on: October 11, 2018, 03:41:58 PM »

Hello,

You may have heard that the Apeiron mod for Kotor have been forced to stop devellopement by Lucasfilm.

Is something similar may be expected for TR ?

That's an excellent and balanced roster.

It's me or you mentionned for the first time a possibility to play beyond Order 66 :angel: .

In issue #50 there is a character looking (always cautious with S. Larroca's art...) like him... who also look like Evram Lajaie from ANH :



So it seems I was wrong as there's also Willard in issue #50 :'(

I also experienced these issues on previous versions.

I think you forgot the link or the picture. I believe you said you inspired yourself from the tabletop X-Wing game and the old RPG sourcebook for some fighter stats. I'm curious to see what's the result.

Discussion, Suggestions & Feedback / Re: GCs proposal for 2.3
« on: July 08, 2018, 06:22:02 AM »
First, I would like you to read my post correctly, I did not say GM. I said "Greater Maldrood impersonating Antemeridian sector". If it's not clear, look at Isard's Revenge GC in 2.2 or Hunt for Zsinj in 2.1. Then FYI Greater Maldrood still existed in 13 ABY, as the Federated Teradoc Union under Kosh Teradoc.

Second, Guardian is a far stretched idea I know but as it took place after Orinda Campaign and before Imperial Skirmish, I intended to show a possible GC that can be a bridge between the two.

Third, for Empire Reborn, that would not be an actual faction but the generic warlord faction that just have some heroes on a single planet.

Discussion, Suggestions & Feedback / GCs proposal for 2.3
« on: July 07, 2018, 04:21:28 AM »

Hi all,

For the next release I don't know if the team plan to add new GCs (we have almost everything we could have dreamt for) but here's two I was thinking of :

 - Borderland Regions Campaign which would focus on the North-East corner of the Galaxy with the following playable faction : NR, IR and maybe Greater Maldrood impersonating Antemeridian sector. The main event of this GC in the lore is the Battle of Celanon which saw Gilad Pellaeon's Reaper destruction against Etahn A'baht. There's also the possibility to add a minor faction Empire Reborn/Disciples of Ragnos. And there also the capture of the Guardian by the Special Acquisition Unit (you know Sienn & Cavv ;D ) that may be included, depending on the faction played.

 - Invids Crisis which would set the NR against Greater Maldrood impersonating Leonia Tavira's Invids. It should be a small GC and, I know it would be hard, but it would be nice to add some asymmetrical warfare flavor. Maybe with timed events/planets locked or timed victory condition.

And you, have you any idea of GCs you might like to see in the futur ?

Discussion, Suggestions & Feedback / Re: New Units thought.
« on: July 01, 2018, 03:50:51 PM »

So look like EA will get the Punisher (http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/TIE/IT_Interdictor_starfighter). Maybe the Star Wing can go to another warlord then. There's also the TIE Agressor (http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/TIE/AG_Aggressor_starfighter) that may be considered.

Probably new NR ships is not a priority but I'm a fan of the New Class Modernization Program and I would like to see the Defender carrier (http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Defender-class_assault_carrier), it's a carrier between the Quasar Fire and the Endurance with its 9 squadrons (3 wings dixit the EGtW). It would need to create a new design as it based on the same hull as the Majestic.

In fact, Emancipator was Wedge's ship and Liberator was Lando's one. Both ships were used to impersonate imperial ships and create (even more) infighting. For attacking forces over Coruscant, they chose to take only one of them, the Liberator, together (with Luke) for various reasons... and lost it quickly. There's even a fan theory that say they landed the ISD on Corran and Mirax Horn's appartment :laugh: . After that Lando and Wedge took together the Emancipator.

For more varied fighters, I think the Star Wing (http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Alpha-class_Xg-1_Star_Wing) or Missile Boat (http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Missile_Boat) may be good adds. Maybe for Eriadu.

Lambda is already in.

Are you sure ? Which GC ? Which planet ?

The sub mod I'm working on will add Grunger, Pitta, Central Committee of Grand Moffs, and Drommel on their respective planets of Gargon, Mandalore, Corellia, Tralus, Kessel and Sollux respectively with their forces. All will be under the generic Warlords AI and have lore accurate forces.

As I said, I'm looking forward to it ;)

Our primary focus, in terms of additional Warlord forces for 2.3, will be on including the other Grand Admirals where we can. It will also depend heavily on which GC it is.

Too bad, my favorite is Osvald Teshik and there's no way he gonna be in ICW :'( :P ;)

Discussion, Suggestions & Feedback / More little warlord planets ?
« on: June 12, 2018, 02:54:44 AM »

Hello all,

There's already some single planets controled by small warlords and in certain conditions you can appropriate their heroes. Would you like to have more of them ?

Lambda Sector and Kathol Sector would be nice add to ICW's lore but in gameplay perspective they may not seems the best choices.

There's also Empire Reborn that if located in the Lenico Belt (their base in Jedi Knight II), could be used to give more heroes to Pentastar (I am not sure they need them) but that would be odd to have them in Era 1. Maybe locking the planet until Era 4 but I am not sure it would be worth it. Same can be applied for Kaarenth Dissension/Restored Empire and make them spawn in Era 5 (or just in Orinda Campaign, I think Corey mentionned something like that).

Is there other you want to see or you think there's already enough in 2.2 ?

Ascendancy Discussion / Re: Political leader for the NR ?
« on: June 10, 2018, 03:29:59 AM »

Thank you for your answer, I tought that was not feasible but now I know why and that's very enlightening. To bad for the hero limit, I am little frustrated to have only one capital ship hero for the NR (hey there's still a remaining slot :angel: ).

14

Always hard to believe the amount of work carried, thanks guys, particulary Slornie, I am really looking forward the new manual :D .

Legends is a brand for Disney equal to "not ours", within it there's various timeline, more details here : http://www.starwarsfanworks.com/timeline/download.html. You'll see they wanted to merge it to a point it became unbearable and that Nathan P. Butler, but also Leland Chee, had given up to that and put two separate timelines to chose. Lucasfilm didn't bother to make it full and exclusively canon for their new Story Group because of the multiple novels and comics related to it they didn't want to add to their canon. But it's hard to deny this serie was a reboot of the Clone Wars period pre-2008 and they tried to fit everything with forceps to not displease the fans (that didn't worked). So instead of "Legends", you may read "former storyline" or "pre-2008 Legends timeline"

Contradiction or replacement are not indeed unique to TCW but the serie created more than 90% of them as Filoni liked to take content from the EU without respecting it. Unlike the other authors (including Lucas) who created their own things that sometimes contradicted with previous stuff. Sort of difference between malevolence and inefficiency, there's one I can stand, not the other. The worst is that he then defended himself by "all had been approved by Lucas". Other authors like Veicht and KJA used to call for Lucas to allow them more liberties but that was to create for in depht stories and more original content, not to twist other people's creations.

Little things from TCW would not bother me but that change for Ventress... That's not the same character in fact ! Not the same species, not the same physical appearance, not the same personality, not the same (back)story,...

For the EGtW, I've got a quick look, not seen anything regarding Ventress but the Battle of Boz Pity is mentioned and if going with TCW, this battle couldn't have happened the way it did in the Republic comics serie for Ventress.

Well you do what you want, that's your mod after all. You'll even likely to get more public with more TCW content, with all these young who grew up watching it. The point of my question was just to know if there was ingame motivation for this description or if you just took inspiration from Wookieepedia (which replaced pre-2008 stuff by 2008-2014 stuff when the two contradicted).

Ascendancy Discussion / Political leader for the NR ?
« on: June 09, 2018, 03:35:53 AM »

Hello,

You all know that the IR had three choices for political leader, what if it was the same for the NR.
Pro: that would give better replayablity, more diversity in games, wether you are playing NR or against it
Con: the NR have already all the units it needs and such change would maybe need to had new units to Ascendancy

But the major changes would probably be in technology and just a unique unit and a unique hero roster to each leader would be sufficient, for example:
 - Mon Mothma would have a doctrine more oriented on battleship (unique unit: MC80 Home One) with heroes like Ackbar (MC90), Nantz (MC80 Home One) and Hiram Drayson (MC80 Liberty ?)
 - Leia Organa would have a doctrine more oriented to fighter support (unique unit: Defender-class carrier) with heroes like A'baht (Endurance), Solo (MC80b) and Antilles (ISD)
 - Borsk Fey'lya would have a doctrine more oriented to small ships (unique unit: BAC) with heroes like Sovv (Dauntless), Kre'fey (BAC) and Bel Iblis (Dreadnaught)

What do you think, that much sub-factions would be worth balancing for extra diversity ?

17

I know you will use heroes from TCW, but giving Ventress her TCW description instead of her Legends one is another thing (thankfully Grievous have his correct one). Is that because you intend to use the Nightsisters Arc ingame ?

Star Wars Discussion / Re: Do you plan on watching Solo?
« on: June 08, 2018, 05:55:54 AM »

Seems the disatisfaction created by the Disneylogie is paying, Solo isn't working well. There's (unrelated ?) rumors that KK will left Lucasfilm in September but I am afraid it will be someone from the same folder that will replace her. I still hope for a change in the (scorched earth) policy regarding the Legends.

Great, you've covered all (and much more) the things I've found unbalanced.

I'll watch the video later :) .

Star Wars Discussion / Is that Firmus Nantz in Mutiny at Mon Cala ?
« on: June 07, 2018, 05:39:28 AM »

Hello,

Issue #45 of Marvel's ongoing Star Wars had some cameo. And I think here it's Nantz with Willard (a General present in Legends novel Razor's Kiss) :



Sorry for this Larroca's art, but here's more and far worst if you want :laugh: :



Marvel is definetely not Dark Horse and the time of good comics is now behind us. But anyway, what's your thoughts on this "Nantz" ?
