OK, so it’s not gameplay information, but we were thrilled to see the announcement that the SWTOR team will be at PAX East, March 11-13. Stephen Reid started a thread, asking what the fans would like to see there. Apparently, someone has already requested a dunk tank. David Bass says, great idea, but NO. *sad face
Studio Insider: Starship Design
Still feeling the warm glow of that announcement, we settled down to enjoy a closer look at how starships go from concept to production. In today’s Studio Design article, “Starship Creation,” Ryan Dening and Christopher Reeves walk the reader through a detailed description of the process that starts with researching ships from other sources, such as KOTOR, to putting the final touches on the 3-D product with texturing and lighting. Read the full article here.
Fan and BioWare Art
Fan Art is not our favorite kind of update, but we loved these Sith propaganda posters by Greighson (artwork for this article is from that collection). Other fan contributions include portraits and fiction. New smilies (Trandoshan), forum avatars, and planet concept art round out this creative portion of the update. See all Fan Friday art here.
Blaine Christine tackles questions on a range of topics from whether there are quests specific to specific advanced classes (no) to whether all planets will be open to both factions (no, but only a few are closed to specific factions). Read all nine questions here (scroll way down).
