Just some minor tests and I release what I have already!!!

Also, In the future I'm going to add two more races of the star wars theme.
I was thinking about the Mandalorians & The Huts.

I was wondering if a mod where stars-wars-flavoured factions fight against Star ship trooper/Arachnids or Daleks is a good idea ?

I think Betrayal at Bespin from ESB soundtrack would be a good candidate. And BTW I have 3 soundtracks. Empire Strikes Back (2 discs), EP2 Attack of the Clones, and Trilogy Remastered. Let me know if any of these sound good for the mod.

Well I saw your post a while back of Crystals I think I can use some pictures if you allow.
The idea is to make some race specific tech and exclusive resources who are rare to find to make the components needed.

Temporary list for the moment :

Exclusive for the Mandalorians

Tech: Mandalorian made out of Iron who is made out of Beskar => Armor & Troop modifier.
fluff : Beskar is enormously strong, able to deflect blaster bolts and even lightsaber blades. Yet it is light and flexible, particularly when forged with carbon and ciridium. A skilled naur'alor can shape Beskar into almost any form, manipulating its strength, color, and other properties.


Exclusive for the Empire
Tech: Neuranium Armor & cloacking device. who are made out of Neuranium => Armor & Cloacking tech.
fluff : Neuranium was a metallic substance used to shield from radiation, and one of the heaviest and densest metals in the galaxy. A millimeter of it could stop most scanners, and it could even temporarily block lightsaber energy.

Tech: Orbalisk Armor who is made out of a symbiotic relation with a parasite => Troop tech.
fluff : Orbalisks were poisonous to average beings, and caused extreme physical pain to their host. Darth Bane, however, was able to remain alive by allowing the orbalisks to feed off the dark side energy in his body. In turn, the orbalisks sent a constant massive surge of adrenaline and other enzymes into his bloodstream, increasing his already considerable physical strength and enabling him to draw on even more dark side energy. However, this cycle could cause Bane to go into a fit of mindless rage if he did not keep his anger under control. The orbalisks also released other chemicals that enabled Bane to heal almost instantly from virtually any wound, even those inflicted by a lightsaber. Because of their benefits to their host, the orbalisks in a sense shared a symbiotic rather than parasitic relationship with Bane.



Exclusive for the CIS
Armorweave tech => Troop tech.
fluff: An armored cloth material capable of dissipating blaster bolts, and with at least limited resistance to lightsaber attacks.

Cortoise Metal Made from Cortosis ore
fluff : Is very rare, brittle, fibrous material whose conductive properties caused lightsabers to temporarily short out upon contact. This effect made cortosis a useful material for anti-lightsaber melee weapons, though with repeated strikes, a lightsaber could still cut through it. Cortosis, due to its heat and energy resistant properties, was also resistant to blaster fire.



Furthermore :

Rebel & Republic
Songsteel made out of Song metal to enhance troop tech.
fluff : Songsteel was an extraordinarily light and luminescent silver metal, used in masterwork swords and staves. The metal was reserved only for the most exquisite of weapons, and was extremely tedious to forge and shape.

CIS & Empire & Mandaloria
Phrik Compound tech made out of Phrik metal => Armor tech.
fluff : Phrik was a rare metallic compound that was one of only a few lightsaber-resistant substances known. It was used in the construction of extremely light and durable battle armor[1] as well as melee weapons


Empire & Republic & Rebels
Tech. Force weapon => Force crystals => Armor tech.
fluff : Force Weapon was a Force ability that allowed the user to imbue an unpowered weapon with the Force for a period of time. By channeling energy into the weapon, it allowed the wielder to strike and do more damage than the weapon's simple appearance would suggest.

If someone has idea's for other sciences or idea's please feel free to Pm.

I want also to find something who could fit the Mandalorians in the future.

This is what I collected for the moment.

Here you go...
35 is a Bacta tin
30 is death stick leaves... :)
43 is obviously a holocron...
As a side note, I tried to use a holocron for the game messages, but if you do that, the holocron then appears when a character transfers while in space from one place to another.
28 is illicit drugs -- I have Xizor in my game.
23 is foodstuffs.
25 is Corellian Brandy if I could ever keep Data away from it.
11 Cts is Cortosis... I could not find a good icon for it.

There are other crystals and gems...
Enjoy; everyone is free to use whatever they find.

The idea of using letters was not mine. Some other brilliant soul did that. I really liked it... I wish I could have done that for more resources.

Now TJ...you KNOW that DATA is not particular! If it can sell on the open markets
and he can get either Gold-Pressed Latinum or Hutt Credits for it...it's a sure bet!

Hi I'm a relativley new player who's looking for a good star wars mod and I came across yours and wanted to download but the game-front link in your sig says the file doesn't exist any more. Has the mod been completley abandoned? Shame if it is (as it seems to be), there really are only two SW mods that I could find, yours inclluded and I would find it thouroghly enjoyable to rage across the universe as the Confederacy, subjagating planets with massive droid armies.

Does anyone have any good images of the later New Republic ships? Or any other SW ships? I'm trying to make an "Imperial fragmentation" mini/personal mod, and I'm running a bit short.

I was not able to find anything of worth but then I found

https://www.google.com.au/search?q=CC-7700+frigate+star+wars&espv=2&biw=1280&bih=893&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=pwtkVY_4K8XDmwWG_YEg&ved=0CAYQ_AUoAQ#tbm=isch&q=CC-7700+frigate&imgrc=U0QZMwZRxcuI7M%253A%3Bd8TEBAqHMEaIAM%3Bhttp%253A%252F%252Fmedia.moddb.com%252Fimages%252Farticles%252F1%252F64%252F63751%252Fauto%252FCorellianProfile1.jpg%3Bhttp%253A%252F%252Fwww.moddb.com%252Fgroups%252Fstar-wars-fan-group%252Fnews%252Fmod-of-the-year-awards-year-in-review-part-13%3B1920%3B1280

To find the pictures I went to http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Category:New_Republic_starship_classes

to find the classes of starship for New Republic.

Then did a google search images for CC-7700 frigate star wars and found nothing.

Then searched for CC-7700 frigate and fund the link avove

Looking for the CR90 corvette I found this
https://www.google.com.au/search?q=CC-7700+frigate+star+wars&espv=2&biw=1280&bih=893&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=pwtkVY_4K8XDmwWG_YEg&ved=0CAYQ_AUoAQ#tbm=isch&tbs=rimg%3ACWYKDYzVXCPoIjgFiW_1vutpiL8w45t4n_1x3uKaStOa8fVmYTdWYTvud7oM_1TDkc4cvlHRAOHQL1TngBx9r6smDATICoSCQWJb--62mIvES5eTxNSCzriKhIJzDjm3if_1He4RmZCJX7V3IYoqEgkppK05rx9WZhHHeSiE_1sCEqyoSCRN1ZhO-53ugEdfKJSKtoQCGKhIJz9MORzhy-UcR9a3TMP9WKScqEglEA4dAvVOeABGcO_1q_1u4BnGCoSCXH2vqyYMBMgEedoIpYPiEze&q=Bothan%20Assault%20Cruiser&imgrc=D3ClUTA-WijBNM%253A%3BIiK036D-ypj9mM%3Bhttp%253A%252F%252Ffc04.deviantart.net%252Ffs70%252Fi%252F2010%252F280%252Fd%252F2%252Fcorellian_cr90___top_side_by_dlamont-d308swy.jpg%3Bhttp%253A%252F%252Fdlamont.deviantart.com%252Fart%252FCorellian-CR90-E-F-342716646%3B900%3B506


and so on.

i used this to find most of the ships for my star trek mod... some of the pics needing photoshop work though


Also look through deviantart.com... search for whatever ship class you are looking for...it may be there...but you might need to use different searches to find it if there.

I need a good set of choices for the NR, and a lot of choices to give each IR warlord faction a different flavor besides slightly changed stats. I'll also take any higher quality images of ships I already have. Hell, throw in any legacy-era ships you have too.

Also, artist who has done quite a few star wars ships w/top views: http://unusualsuspex.deviantart.com/gallery/

Unfortunately it's a bit hard to isolate the single ship image and white out the background. I may try a few though.

I need help identifying these ships:


I've seen it before, some kind of republic cruiser/destroyer, forgot the name though.


Civilian freighter, corellian design, forgot number.


Republic early model cruiser, also forgot name.


Imperial for sure, maybe rand ecliptic?


???


???

Awesome, been waiting for this for a while. Badly messed up my first Confederacy game though, accidentally made myself a one planet empire without warp technology in the middle of Imperial space. It was simply a matter of watching as Imperial fleets slowly amassed around my home world.

Actually there is a way to isolate the ship from the background......

I use pain.net and first use the magic wand to try and select areas of the background to remove.... adjust the tolerance bar left or right and often you can get the entire background selected and you press DEL and the only thing left is the ship.

If the magic wand can not separate the ship from the background, use the ellipse select tool . Zoom in to your picture by 500%, very important, and now you can clearly see the ship outline from the background. Draw an ellipse outside the outline of the ship and press DEL to delete the background. Do this all the way around the outline of the ship.

By zooming in 500% it is a lot easier to select the background from the ship as you will see all the background pixels that need to be removed.....

Hope that makes sense.

In the picture below I am separating Locutus of Borg from the background using the method above...... for smaller spaces just zoom in further or the task is difficult and will take time.

By zooming in by up to 900% it took me 10 minutes to separate Locutus from a diffacult background.

So if it is hard to isolate the ship, you need to zoom in closer.

GIMP has an auto-cropping tool that allows you to pretty quickly (2-3 min) select the outline of the ship. Problem is it can sometimes chop off turrets so we'll see...I'm also a bit unhappy with having some really nice high-detailed models and having to mix them with what are essentially blobs of paint...

Well, I have great news. I figured out how to control the camera in Star Wars: Empire at War to get good top view images of ships. Since that game has a thriving mod community, that means there are potentially hundreds of ships available. It's just a matter of minimizing shadows, orienting them properly, then trimming the screenshots.

I'd personally give the Empire a hefty disapproval penalty (they have to build the Death Star to keep order after all) and rebels a bonus as they are fighting for freedom etc. Otherwise - looks cool

This is a good idea. Empire should have a good economy and strong military, but high corruption/very low approval, while the rebels have a weaker base economy and military (they did have to rely on smugglers and hand-me-down tech after all) but very high approval and like a +99% espionage modifier lol.
