Level Progress Updates

Screenshot galleries will be coming shortly but in the meantime, here is an updated progress report on each of the levels.

  • Ramses Hed: Approximately 85% of the level has been completed, and 100% of the original layout is done. Mainly, we need to add some new areas to the spaceport leading up to the entrance to the smuggler ship since the original started way too abruptly (and I have too many cool ideas to let them go to waste).
  • Robotics Facility: A mapper hasn't been assigned to this level yet but there is approximately 35% finished thanks to the original DFMod team's Karrackoo.
  • Nar Shada: New textures have been applied, architecture modified, and puzzles and enemies add. About 30% of the level is finished and fully playable and we've started working on some new areas.
  • Jabba the Hutt's Ship: Prospective team member Hhunter6 has been applying new textures and making adjustments to Salv's original map with some very nice results. You can check them out here:
  • The Imperial City: No progress. Only the landing pad area has been completed.
  • Fuel Station Ergo: No progress. The original version is likely to be scrapped.
  • The Executor: No progress. A 1/1 scale recreation of the level is available to the general public via the "extras" package from the first team (you can find it on the front page of the original website - and will serve as the basis for the final version.
  • The Arc Hammer: No progress. A new map will have to be built entirely from the ground up.
There you have it, folks. Screenshots of the Ramses Hed and Narshada levels should be up next week. Stay tuned!
