Try to imagine how it looks to someone who's playing it the first time in 2018. I woulda used that mod in a heartbeat.
Yeah, I was also really looking forward to it. Although it was always a possibility that this would happen it doesn't make the situation any less disappointing.

Lucasfilm stomps Apeiron. That's too bad really it surely was creating a buzz and already copies of the original were being purchased so the Mod could be played for those that hadn't played it already. A Resurgence in an already Star Wars favorite was starting and Lucasfilm instead of fanning the (Star Wars) flame stomps it out. I guess if there's no money to be made nobody should have fun. Really sad when the Lawyers and Dollar signs outweigh the people.

Reminds me of CBS running around stomping out Star Trek TOS *Like iterations wherever people create them for a show they didn't even like decades ago.

Yeah it's sad, I get they got to protect their IP but c'mon the thing would require an original copy of the game... alas it's the world we live in.

What I would like, and I know it may be an unpopular opinion, but a truly singleplayer KOTOR-like game with current-gen graphics and some FPS-style, or TPS-style mechanics, but truly being an RPG of the highest degree. You can literally choose what you want to be, through actions you make, similar to KOTOR (for example, I denied being a force user in any way, attempting to stay as far from being known as one as possible, and only using blasters and vibroblades, wanting to just be a Mando. It wasn't very easy, as the game WANTS you to be Revan, but imagine a game where you aren't tied down to it.

SWTOR is a step in the right direction, but a truly open-world game without hotbars or set attacks like KOTOR, where you can honestly just be what you want to be?

Think of it kind of like this: Cyberpunk 2077 (I think that's the name) but Star Wars, multiple planets and 100% open world and RP centric. It'd be a paradise, imho, but I honestly doubt something like that would be possible. It can't be monetized out the wazoo, and there's no multiplayer for lootboxes to be shilled. So as much as I'd like this to be a reality, I doubt it'll happen.

Agreed, while KOTOR is better in terms of choices-that-matter I really love the RP versatility vanilla SWTOR has with multiple classes to play through each with a unique story to them.

Looks good now let's hope the mouse stays away from this but that's unlikely
