    Hello everyone!

    I'm writing to inform you all that I am in the middle of a
    computer crisis!!!

    I will not be able to send out all the images that have
    been requested until I can get this problem fixed.

    I am trying the best I can to keep track of all the requests.
    Please, be patient and I'll get them to you ASAP, I promise!

    Thanks for the overwhelming response!
    You guys are the greatest!!!

    From what I have read on it, there are only a certain number of species that you can be, and Boba Fett aint one of them, but who knows..I read that in Star Wars Insider a while back. They had Darth Maul's species on there and Rodians like Greedo, but no Bounty Hunters.

    According to their website, you can be any of 8 species (Human, Zabrak, Rodian, Trandoshan, Twi'lek, Bothan, Wookiee, or Mon Calamari), and you can choose from 25 occupations when beginning the game. Some occupations, including "Bounty Hunter" are considered "elite" and you have to work up to them and therefore they are not available immediately.

    Also, you can't be Darth, Boba, Luke, or any other "main" character, though you MIGHT be able to meet and interact with them during the game.


    This is from their website:

    3.15 Can I play a bounty hunter like Bossk or Boba Fett?

    Yes, you can. There is a bounty hunter profession in the game, which includes abilities such as tracking your targets. Bounty hunters are not able to take down any target they wish; they are given a list of possible targets and they sign up for a particular one at the bounty hunter's guild. The more experienced you are as a bounty hunter, the more difficult (and lucrative!) the targets offered to you will be. Targets may include computer-controlled NPCs or players who have incurred bounties because of breach of contract or criminal actions

    *note: the website goes on to say that if you accept a bounty, and go after someone and FAIL, then a bounty is placed on YOUR head!!!

    I'm beta testing this game, and due to the NDA I can't say much. What I can say is this:

    Sorry JangoBear, the system is nothing like the RPG out right now, or the RPG from WEG that was out a while ago. It's a whole new monster.

    The CG that everyone is commenting on (for Boba) is not the CG used in the game.

    You can't be a Mandalorian, but you CAN be a Bounty Hunter.

    The...game...will...RULE.

    They are putting a SPACE expansion out soon after release. This means, yes, you will be able to have your own Millennium Falcon, let's say, or Slave 1, and toot around the galaxy going "Yipee Kai-Ay!!" or something to that effect.

    One of the coolest things that makes THIS game 10 million times better than any other online game out there is combat: With EQ, DAOC, AC2, or any other game (besides Neocron which is a cool concept, bad execution), you pick your target, hit your combat button, and watch you bludgeon the heck out of something (or cast damage spells at it, etc). With Star Wars, combat is like a First-Person-Shooter like Counterstrike, so you have to be constantly moving and jumping/dodging, etc. This makes this game far superior.

    Now to some bad points....you can only play ONE character PER SERVER. There are 10 servers, so you can have a maximum of only 10 characters. There are 25 professions, though, so some people are complaining about lack of being able to try everything out without having to delete old characters.

    The GOOD side is that you put more effort into each individual character, so your friendships are more valid (who in EQ or DAOC hasn't gone "Oh, Bob? You're really an alternate character of Joe? Oh I never knew!")

    Also, people won't be using their other characters as mules, cutting down on stockpiling and "farming" of resources.

    They've got a REALLY AWESOME pet system built in. All I can say.

    They also have a wicked graphics engine. I can't say details, but just know that a certain planet Boba is VERY familiar with was our first testing grounds, and a certain "weather anomoly" was SO AWESOME. Couldn't see a thing. BUT I should hush now before Sony lawyers attack me. =P

    One of my friends is beta testing this game also. Sadly, it is my friend beta testing it and not me. There was an article on this game in a recent pc gamer and one in the last star wars gamer. For those of you who don't feel like fighting, there are several non-combat occupations, such as miner, hair dresser, and farmer. From what I've read, being a jedi isn't the illustrious career it might seem to be. Due to the timeline of the story, jedi are still being purged, so if anyone finds out you are learning to be one, imperials will try to hunt you down.

    Taffer - good point about the non-combatant professions -- in fact that one that appeals to me is the "Droid Parts Maker" (forget exact name) -- he can make gadgets that go on droids (which are also "pets"), and the same parts can be used in weapons or what-not.

    Anyway, I give this game massive thumbs up (well, I have 35 thumbs, so...)

    OK, I must admit I've been holding out on you guys.
    I've got several more to add and I've been slacking the
    past few days and haven't gotten them up.
    So finally here are a handfull more to add to the collection.

    This should complete the Skywalker family tree.

    Father...


    and son!!!


    Obi-Wan...


    and 3PO!!!


    Several more to come... stay tuned!

    I am in the process of putting all of these on the web.
    Give me a few days and I'll have them up.

    I've just been completely overwhelmed with the amount
    of requests I've gotten. I can't possibly keep track of who
    wants what and what size. So look for the link in this
    thread in the coming days.

    Keep your eyes peeled for some good images that can
    be made into desktops. If you find any send them my way!

    Just thought I'd put up the latest desktop.
    Still looking for a SANDTROOPER and a BIKER SCOUT!

    Here's a SNOWTROOPER!!!



    Still more on the way. I nearly have the web link
    completed. Should be up and running soon.

    If someone can send me a better pic, I'll certainly make a
    different one. That was the best pic I could find at the time.

    Hopefully the link to all the above images will be up
    sometime tomorrow. I'll let you know when exactly.

    I'll ask again, if you find a good high res pic of a SW
    character you wanna see made into a desktop, send it
    to me.

    I'd love to make Chewbacca, Greedo, Bossk and many
    others but simply can't find a good pic of any of 'em!

    DSD - Just wanted to let you know ( albeit a little late) that I got your e-mail with the pic. I just wanted to thank you, and to just say openly that I think you've done an OUTSTANDING job on these desktops ! You're extremly talented

    Thanks Again !

    mcabrera1275 came thru on the Biker Scout image!!!
    Not only did he send me some of the coolest photos
    I've ever seen of a Biker Scout , but they are all of him
    in his very own costume!

    Thanks to him for the amazing photo and great work
    on the awesome costume!!!

    So here he is... our own Mike Cabrera!



    I'm hoping that I'll have a Sandtrooper in the
    next day or so!

    OK... They're on the web!!!

    I just finished putting all the desktops on the web!
    I have each of them in 3 different screen resolutions
    (800 x 600, 1024 x 768, 1152 x 870). All 23 of them
    are there, with hopefully many more to come.

    CLICK HERE FOR STAR WARS DESKTOPS!!!

    I apologize to many who have waited patiently for me to
    send them e-mails. I simply had way too many requests
    for me to keep track of them all. This way you can pick the
    ones you want, in the resolution you want, whenever you
    want.

    Please let me know if any of the links are dead or lead to
    the wrong pic or size. It's pretty easy to get mixed up and
    link to the wrong thing.

    I will update the web page when I have 2 or 3 new ones
    to put up. I'll post here letting you know when there is
    something new to look at.

    Thanks a ton to all who have helped so far, sending pics!
    Thanks also for the incredible response and all the kind remarks!

    Alright guys, control yourselves!

    When I found this image, I knew it had to be made into
    a desktop. This one was a fun one to make!

    This one is not yet on the web, but will be once
    I have a couple more to add. So, be patient.

    Thanks goes out to SEEKER for coming through on the
    Sandtrooper image. He sent me a pic of him in his own
    costume! I'm sure none of us here are terribly surprised
    at how incredible his costume looks. Great work, SEEK!

    Here is SEEKER as a Sandtrooper...



    This last batch will be available on my website soon.
