Some time ago (I can't remember how long this was announced because I knew about it later on) a group of developers and IT guys announced that they would work on a project for KOTOR - it would be a HUGE graphical and technical overhaul for KOTOR, which was released in 2003. If you've looked at any of the work for this immense project, you'd definitely appreciate the time and effort the team put into the remake, and you'd gaze in awe. It was glorious. Through the little bits of gameplay that they showed us, KOTOR fans were held captive by pure joy and excitement. It truly is a remaster. Better than a remaster. From a game made in 2003, this remake looked beyond amazing, and when compared to other games relesaed in 2018/17, this remake held its own - IMO this remake looked better than most games coming out now.
The devs meant it as a mod, and was not for profit, but jsut a community mod. * This isn't a mod, as it uses unreal engine 4.
Recently, it had been announced that this project would shut down, as LucasArts (a shell of its former self) sent a cease-and-desist letter.
The project is cancelled.
What are your thoughts about this? I, for one, was very excited for its released and I hoped that there would be no obstacles, as it was just a mod.

Very bad for the modding community. Very bad on behalf of Disney/Lucasfilms.

The issue is that large companies and corporations are too detached from a lot of the modern world of tech, and are still scrambling to find a way to monetise everything possible, which apparently extends to remasters of 17 year old games, despite the fact that its requirement of a copy of the original game literally meant sales for the game would inevitably increase. It's sad that they don't see how damaging this is to their own public image more than anything.
The team announced they were reaching out in the hopes of appealing the call, but they deleted the tweet and have been quiet about Aperion ever since, so I don't hold out hope. It's not remotely a Fallout 4 Capital Wasteland thing. That was an issue converting files from one game to the other, which would have been illegal. As far as we can tell, this operated under the fair use policy, as you would still need to own the base game to play. It was more to do with simply using the Star Wars brand.

Honestly, the most bittersweet thing about getting older? It's realising all those things you loved as a child were all just products and clever marketing. Sad times.

I despise the entertainment industry right now and its because of bullshit like this. I am all for companies protecting their IP if someone is trying to make money off it, but shutting down free mods and other fan made projects are the actions of scum. its why i mostly stick to playing stuff like jrpgs and older games these days.
the industry we have today makes me want to fucking puke on a daily basis.

KOTOR Apeiron was in no way or shape a "mod". Mod is a modification of a game inside it's engine. Apeiron wasn't a mod to Kotor as it used Unreal Engine 4 a totally different engine. And before anyone start saying "But it requires main game for voices!". That not a modification, it's literally ripping files and converting them for use in new engine. Besides nothing from Apeiron looked like and felt like Kotor to me, so I hadn't have any interest in it at all.

I'm amazed they thought they'd get away with it, honestly.
