Hey I wanted to start brainstorming some of the Jedi's stances. I figure I'll make some generic Jedi stances for the regular opponents and some custom stances for the big players.

Here is something I made tonight that I use for the blue stance. To me it is a practicle Soresu style (form III) stance. I got the idea from a pic Stossis sent me and I thought would be really cool. The benefit of this stance is that it holds the blade forward and out so that it is much easier to block with.
Pics:

Here is what I use for the yellow stance. Yellow, to me, is a combination of Shii Cho and Niman since it is balanced and also very effective. It's also my favorite style. For this stance I reverse engineered it from Djem So, Soresu and Ataru. Djem So, as seen by Dooku and Anakin in ep II, holds the saber high; Soresu keeps the saber close to the midline of the body for better blocking; Ataru, as seen by Obi and Yoda, keeps the saber high but also in front of the body.

The first link is what the stance looks like from the player's perspective. The last one is from the 1st person viewpoint. The pics (links) in the middle are from the front, back, and side views of the whole body.
I haven't added breathing to them yet. I'll wait till we get all the stances chosen before I do that.

So tell me what you think, post suggestions for stances, and even post some ideas and/or pics of things you would like to see for either the Jedi or Sith.

nice stance mate :P we just the need the 3 one :P also if you could do some form of some new parrys.. i like the orginal once but if you could some how add them as a 1 hand parry for single sabers. and duels need some new parrys as one hands parrys.. take a look in ep2 when anakin and dooku fights and he use duel sabers there. staff if you could look at how maul do parrys with his saber in staff lets see how that could turn out and make it with a cool spin when he does the animation then it would be awesome but only parrys spin for single sabers i think.. i can see in my head how it would be with duel and staff but would not look good if i think over it smile if it not is to much to ask for smile i know you hate makeing MP animations but i think this could turn out pretty nice mate smile

I don't know about spinning parry animations, because when the player has to block multiple attacks that could really screw with how the saber is supposed to spin. I'm only focusing on the sp side of this mod at the moment. So EoC is going to have to wait. Sorry.

I'm going to work on Djem So next.

i must admit that the demo didnt go as i thought it would. I was able to contact cyrus and he has a lot of work said he would post an update soon but that he would have trouble finishing it so i miht ask him to hand it over so i can do the final touches. biggrin
People have lifes and i understand if sometimes we get to busy for modding its normal wink

Thanks. I'll try and contact Hapslash and see if he is ok with it. If I get permission to I'll probably go back and add the breathing effects.

That's a good point. Thanks for telling me that. I'm going to add breathing and add Hoth support. Mainly it's going to be full robed and hooded.

Glad you like it. I'm going to try and update the right arm a little. If you look at the robe sleeve it hangs a little to the right, about 45 degrees. I'm going to try and rotate it so it looks like it is hanging down.

I can't make a push specific to a stance, but I could make the push different. When obi pushes Grievous away they are in a saber lock. I have an idea brewing now... cool

Added (2009-12-10, 7:54 Pm)
---------------------------------------------
Another idea.
I think I'll work on Anakin next, and maybe Dooku, and just release a little pack of these guys animations.
