Clearly the Hero Engine was the best choice....
Before they made GSF, they didn't even know if doing free flight was possible for the engine. They made it happen. Figuring out how to make chat bubbles work is a lot more simple, they just haven't really believed it to be a priority.

Proably because except for a tiny fraction of roleplayers are the only people who care

Pretty much. I couldn't care less about chat bubbles personally, but I know it's important to certain groups of people so I hope they'll get their day.

Darth Moff, he was freezing - his skin turning pale.

He turned to his chum, and said 'Taun-taun, my friend?'

'If I don't get warm soon, I'll be meeting my end!'.

'That's awful' said taun-taun, standing up with a cry.

'I don't know what I'd do if you happened to die'.

'I wish there was some way I could come to your aid.'

'But as I'm a taun-taun, I've no clue, I'm afraid'

'Don't worry,' said Moff 'I can think for us both,'

'And I know of a way to survive, here on Hoth'

And then he stood up, and unleashed his sabre.

And although he was freezing, his arm didn't waver.

A horrible cry rang out through the blizzard.

As Moff opened up taun-taun from his feet to his gizzard.

'Not bad' thought Darth Moff, as he climbed deep inside.

'Apart from the smell, it's a good place to hide.'

And all through the night, he slept snug and warm.

And woke rested, on Life Day, safe from all harm.


Happy Life Day Everyone!
Well done!

Thanks everyone.

I don't care if it was on the PTS. It's a great item and was half the reason I bought cartel coins for December. I'm supremely disappointed an otherwise awesome item won't have a place in the game.
