The board for discussing all things Star Wars!

This thread serves as a simple introduction to the board, but can also be used for suggestions, board news or anything you might like to share.

Tips:

• Here are some essentials to getting started on the board and integrating into the community.

1: Check out the board's CyTube channel for live chats and watching SW videos (feel free to edit the playlist if you're registered on the site): https://cytu.be/r/star-wars

2: We have our own Star Wars encyclopedia covering all pre-Disney media, the SW Holonet. Feel free to check it out and contribute: http://swholonet.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Main_Page

3: Don't be afraid to ask for info, sauce or links about SW comics, books, games, etc. We're always happy to share what we know.

4: Learn some freaking Huttese, you scocha kungs.

5: Fair warning. Diehard Disneyfags and Namefags can and will be mocked by the locals.

6: Always check the catalog.

7: Credits are accepted, but truguts are preferred.

The Rules:

• The rules here are simple, we live by and follow the rules and laws of Hutt Space. Which means we barely follow any real rules here. Just don't post CP and keep shit on topic as I don't like banning or deleting shit, unless its necessary, like spam, cp, brownpill shit and raids. Off-topic shit will not be deleted either, but it will be anchored (unless its scifi-related and in relation to us), so just make a meta general for that kind of shit.

Well if we go by billing, I guess Alex Hassel is supposed to be Ed…? I guess the director must not have realized Ed was actually a girl. That ought to result in some amusing reactions from both fans and the woke crowd, unless they make Ed an adult FtM tranny…

/sw/ MB2 GAME NIGHT WEEKLY SIGN-UP

Monday 9pm GMT there will be a Movie Battles II server up for the /SW/ community. Chat, fight, capture objectives and duel on the "Best Star Wars game of all time!".

Movie Battles 2 is a free mod of the game; "Jedi knight: Jedi Academy". It can be downloaded at www.moviebattles.org, it requires a copy of Jedi Academy (JA) to play. You can use the steam version or GOG version of JA. It runs around £7 on steam, but if you can't afford that or simply don't want to give Disney your money the pirated GOG version works just as well (or so I'm told).

Monday 9pm MovieBattles II; /SW/'s server. See you there.

Password will be revealed in this thread 1 hour before startup.

Hello all. You might not remember what the Holonet Wiki is, but I was one of the anons involved with the new SW wiki our board was working on a while back. For those of you who need a quick summary, a while back our wiki hit a rather major snag. I found a way to import a large amount of "Legends" wookieepedia content over to our wiki and thus save ourselves from a lot of work, the problem is that the import process could only be done by the owners of our wiki's domain. So I left for quite a spell in hopes of contacting Shoutwiki's staff (our domain owners) and finding some way to import the content. That feels like ages ago now…

So the end result is, I have some bad news gents. I've been trying to contact the staff of Shoutwiki and to find some way to get around the restrictions but have had no luck. Either Shoutwiki doesn't give a shit or its a dying domain. However, during my period of absence as I did my best to collect content from all Legends articles for importing (as well as any pre-2011 content) I've found several alternative wikis. I've long since given up hope on trying to make any progress with Shoutwiki, so to finally get this over with, I was hoping we could continue discussion on all wiki progress here and vote on what to do and which domain to move to.

CODEFAGS WANTED

We're looking at a new possible host, Wikidot. They have everything we need, but in order to import we need to use the API-key and some kind of programming language to set up the automated import (relevant Q/A thread: http://community.wikidot.com/forum/t-10495689/importing-a-new-wiki). Would any anon be willing or able to put such an API together?

According to Screenrant it is Luke`s fault that Palpatine returns in Episode 9 (and there is a logic hole in Return of the Jedi)

Can somebody explain their thought process? According to the EU, most Sith Lords don't return as force ghosts or if they return they have far less power

Nope. How a team which could be acommodated inside a lamba transport, whch was about 20 people or something more could do something against a garrison? The ewoks who were done the fighting even if as fodder.

But the real hole was how the garrison commanders were utterly retarded.

>but instead of immediately abscondely them inside the bunker or dispatching them to the DS/fleet they round up them in the open

>fuck they knew about the rebel presence in the moon the moment they landed, up to the Emperor himself

>they go chase teddy bears

>Leia got shot and they still try to make prisioners

>Han Solo deceiving the garrison

>nobody asks for identification

>durr hurr we will open the bunker and send squads to help just because an AT-ST driver told us so, without mention to rank or anything

>oh but it was the back door, the garrison were smaller there

Now that there's talk of Disney doing their own cinematographic ripoffs of Kotor, I've been wondering: what would good Kotor movies be like? I'm thinking of at most 3 movies -realistically it's unlikely that more would be made- and only the period from the Mandalorian Wars to the end of Kotor II, as that what I'm most familiar with. I know little of TOR.

The first question is one of focus: which parts of the period are directly shown within the movie/duology/trilogy? There are advantages and disadvantages to picking one segment (Mandalorian Wars, Kotor I, Kotor II) and doing a standalone or two-part series with it or fitting some/all of the period into a trilogy.

The Mandalorian wars have a lot of potential. They present a mighty invading antagonist with a culture of honor, an ailing Republic unsure of wheter to intervene on behalf of the Outer Rim worlds attacked by the Mandalorians, a brutal genocidal war, a Jedi Council lost in hubris and inaction and a dissident Jedi who questions the Council, patriotically leads the fight and slowly flirts with the Dark Side. It even has similarities with the Prequels. And like the Prequels the plot's central conflicts are not the war itself but the struggles within the Republic/Jedi and Revan's attraction to the Dark Side.

I'd divide it in two movies. The first begins with the war at its earlier stages -or, if time needs to be spared, with the Mandalorians on full offensive and the Republic at the brink of defeat- and centers on the Republic's mobilization against the outside threat and the conflict between the Council and the Revanchists. Serroco can be shown as it later plays an important role in Revan's motivation to wage war. It ends with the Revanchists leading a counteroffensive and scoring a victory, perhaps in Taris. The second focuses on Revan's journey to the Dark Side and his discoveries about the Rakata and the looming threat of invasion coming from beyond known space. It features his final duel with Mandalore and the destruction of Malachor V, but doesn't end there: it needs to go on just enough lay the prologue for the Jedi Civil War, showing Revan going to Lehon determined to unite the galaxy. But just stopping at this point would leave the story unfinished.

Why does literally everything have to be remade into some kikeflick!?

If we were just talking about a game translation beat for beat, I would want to see what it would look like if there were an emphasis on the more visual aspects of storytelling. The game was lacking in facial expressions or character movements.

However, you may notice that anons are talking about how a movie could tell stories about other aspects of the time period, not a boring remake of the stories we've already experienced.

>a totally separate story

There are infinite possibilities. Spy/diplomatic drama on Manaan. Czerka's manipulation on Telos. Cyberpunk in Taris. Political conflict and constrasts between palaces and slums in Onderon. Late Dantooine with an idyllic landscape and yet a wounded society, the protagonist a simple farmer or scavenger.

Not actually something interesting, like Anakin fighting Maul, you know, since Maul killed Qui-Gon, who was Anakin's first mentor of sorts. Also, doesn't Ahsoka coming back basically nullify Anakin's whole arc where he falls deeper into darkness because he has lost yet another person that he care about because of the Jedi Order?

DISCUSS YOUTUBERS HERE

Alright you nerf-herders, instead of having half a dozen threads where you shill your favourite Jewtuber and try to convince the rest of the populace that they are /ourguy/ and definitely not a greedy (((Toydarian))) who wants you to donate your Truguts(or Republic Credits if you're some kind of schutta) to their patreon you have this thread.

There is only one rule:When introducing a new e-celeb, you must link to some of their Star Wars related work.

Also, while RLM discussion is allowed, I would suggest going to their dedicated thread, since they are a very prominent part of the fan-base(for bad or for worse) and probably create more discussion than others on the topic of Star Wars.

>>14571

Now that this thread exists, you may or may not get shit for bringing e-celeb discussion to unrelated threads.

You've grown up and childish things don't hold your interest as much as they used to. This is healthy human behaviour so you don't end up an eternal manchild chasing the latest cartoons for the rest of your life.

You also don't enjoy things as much because you have seen or read the good stuff. If 1 in 10 books are the great books how many years go by to get one of them again (ignoring the obvious decline)? As a new fan you got to read stuff on mass and get pointed to the best stuff. As an old fan you burnt through it all and have little left that's quality and have to roll randomly in hopes of the next one being good.

The concept of being a fan of something changed with the internet and if you were involved with the convention scene. It went from a few friends enjoying nerdy shit with magazine articles to selfies, fanfiction and virtue signalling being the primary way to express things. You won't enjoy it as much as you should because of the first two points, but you also won't enjoy it because it's shit. Old nerds aren't like new nerds. They're polar opposite creatures.

>>32560

TBBT is a pile of shite but any one who claims it's the cancer is ignorant. D&D, Star wars, Star Trek, Doctor Who and all the other cancerous shit was mainstream as fuck. Real fucking nerds were reading novels (not comics called graphic novels), and other unpopular wars to approach science fiction.You can't be the biggest science fiction brand on the planet and claim to be a nerdy thing. You can't have 10 popular TV series in a row or million unit selling games either. XD I'm such a nerd hasn't changed a damn bit, you're just more aware of it now. Science fiction hasn't been nerdy since the 1960s and Star wars could only claim to be nerdy maybe in the mid 90s. It's being a special snowflake now and it was then too.

I feel these political themes are rather too explicit.

You talking about my boy Viceroy Gunray? He was supposedly named after Newt Gingrich but besides the common name, I don't really see the similarities.

The fast frigates were used as quick-strike vehicles. A common Imperial tactic was to send several Ardent-class frigates into enemy picket lines to exploit weaknesses and open gaps for other warships. They depended on their impressive shields to allow them to survive. Despite them, they still suffered more damage than most ships in the fleet due to their aggressive tactics.

>The problem with it is that the obsession with making everything into what they view as realistic can eliminate fun and embarrass them if reality turns out not to be what they think it is.

While this isn't specifically related to SW, it's relevant to sci-fi in general: that little bit of your post pretty well sums up virtually all online "world building" communities. While I don't personally engage with these places, a few other artists I keep in touch with do, and they'll occasionally post screencaps of the retarded conversations about muh realism that just never ever stop.

One guy I know was working on building a setting for a TTRPG revolving around anime-inspired mecha and made the mistake of trying to get feedback from one of these places. No matter how many times he explained that the giant robots were the central conceit of the setting, that the setting was built around the giant robots, and that therefore the inclusion of the giant robots was not up for debate, all he ever got was people bitching that giant robots are unrealistic and that he should just use tanks instead.

This blog is from an individual who's been making posts over the last few years questioning a lot of the classic rules of hard SF space warfare. The biggest rule that they tell people when they first get interested in the subject is that stealth in space is impossible. We should note for the purposes of this board the existence of stealth starfighters such as the StealthX X-wings as well as cloaking devices. Cloaking devices are so costly and bulky that they're traditionally only installed on capital ships. But I'm surprised that we didn't see more of them in the later eras with the advent of more advanced and compact cloaking devices.

>they pride themselves on being more realistic but in fact are further away from reality.

This is basically the MO of most popular "nerd" media in 2007 and later.

>>32590

Yeah, the scene with the X-wing turning to face the opposite direction while continuing on course.

I'm familiar with this brand of faggotry. This isn't even the case anymore with Ghost in the Shell's spider tanks, which have been around long enough that people really should have reconsidered their views by now. It's not that difficult to think of scenarios where traditional tanks fare worse than something from GitS would. Anti-tank mines, tank traps and uneven terrain are the worst enemies of a treads-only tank and are very easy to create whiPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

This was meant as a response to this post, but I'm having an acute case of sleep cycle disruption and can't into quoting the correct post or even the correct thread.
