Star Wars: Rogue Squadron 3D Editor Request
Please read it, sign it and spread this around: http://www.petitiononline.com/swrs3d/
Dear LucasArts and Factor 5,

We are a group of enthusiastic fans of your great PC platform computer game, Star Wars: Rogue Squadron 3D. For more than ten years this game, which became a Star Wars arcade game classics, was a source of inspiration for many and many Star Wars fans. But unlike some other Star Wars games there is not any tool available which would let fan community to expand the game by developing additional levels and modifications.

As it is known Factor5 used its in-house level editor L3D to design game levels for Rogue Squadron and Rogue Leader. In fact this tool is not used anymore for any other games because it is out-of-date by now.

Therefore we ask you to release freely the Star Wars: Rogue Squadron 3D level editor. It would allow us to use our creativity to revive the game and expand it with fantastic add-ons. The editor would also serve as a new item in the arsenal of all those enthusiastic fans of Star Wars games.

We are very much looking forward for your kind and helpful decision

Sincerely,
The Undersigned

It's a great idea! I signed!

(Note, you may want to delete Signer 17 off the list. I doubt his would help our case.)

Thanks a lot for support! It is now the second week and we really need more people. So, please please please spread a word about it, especially among game editor communities. FarShot, thanks for the note, I will definitely delete No.17 :-)

By the way, I was trying to contact Darksaber regarding the Petition through his X-Wing Station. I have noticed that he is a moderator here, he will hopefully notice this post.

We have got 22 signatures already. Thanks again to everybody who supported the Petition, signed it and spread the word about it (Thanks for the note, VPR). Email message about it has been sent to Julian Eggebrecht of Factor5 and Darrell Rodrigues of LucasArts. Although many are sceptic, I believe that we can :-)

Thanks a lot, everybody :D Please please please call your fellow Star Wars fans/game editing enthusiasts to join the petition. By the way, both Factor5 email addresses are undeliverable day after, so the message has been forwarded to Dirk Jagalski, Level Editor Programmer from the original Rogue Squadron team.

Great idea, LukA_YJK. It's worth a try. I commented as well (signature 28).

Also, you might want to void signature number 13.

The petition asking LucasArts and Factor 5 to make the Star Wars: Rogue Squadron 3D level editor available to the fan community has been started in March. More than 100 people, mostly expressing their interest in being involved in developing new levels, signed it. There were a former Rogue Squadron development team member and an author of a sci-fi book, many enthusiastic gamers, experienced modders and computer science students. Unfortunately after sending emails to LucasArts and former Factor 5 management twice we did not get any response.

Still determined to continue with the petition, it seems that we will not be able to get the level editor soon. So here is a call for joining forces to develop Star Wars: Rogue Squadron 3D Editor, call for forming the Team to all interested modders, amateur level designers, computer science students and everybody who can contribute. If you are interested in taking this challenge please post a comment. Let us do it ourselves!

Thanks to everybody for supporting the Star Wars: Rogue Squadron 3D Editor Request petition. We have got 113 signatures already. If you want to further support our petition please place the image above (http://media.moddb.com/images/articles/ ... 00x300.jpg) at your website and link it to http://www.petitiononline.com/swrs3d/

Another news is that recently I was in contact with a game developer from White Harvest regarding our Star Wars: Rogue Squadron 3D Editor Request petition. Here is what that person said about Rogue Squadron: "...LucasArts owns all rights, assets and tools to all Rogue Squadron games, and are the only ones who can authorize this. I'm glad that you're still enjoying the old Rogue Squadron,... but I doubt that anybody will ever release the tools. It's actually quite a bit of work, and the interest isn't big enough (not unless the number of petitioners reaches 5 or 6 digits). Regardless, the request would most likely have to go through LEC."
