  1. Even ignoring the PT, many people have complained that DS2 was nearing completion in too short a time, so I thought that a less completed version might mitigate that complaint.

Once you know how to design/build something, it would more than likely take a much shorter time to do it again.

Was about to say the same.
Plus you already have experience, you know the flaws, you know what to correct etc…
I would build the same, but better.

An Empire had to start growing, and because of that, the research still being done, and all of the production delays, it took a whole 19 years for the Death Star I to be fully finished. It only took 4 years for the Death Star II to be built because by then, the Empire was in full power.

And it sounds like the book canon says that they finished the superstructure years ago, it just took them a decade to make the weapon work. Now that they know how to do that, they just have to mount the weapon on a frame and hook it up to a reactor.

Near the opening of Rogue One is where they added the dish onto it, which was the finishing touch.

And yet in Revenge of the Sith we see them building the dish as part of the frame of the station. Maybe it got broked up 😄

Here’s doubleofive’s old list of wanted ROTJ changes if anyone wants to take a look.

https://web.archive.org/web/20140927233237/http://doubleofive.wordpress.com:80/rotj-fanedit-wishlist/

Wow… that is an exhaustive list! There are some really great ideas in there! I’m especially impressed with all of the continuity and effects suggestions. Some suggestions seem a bit on the impossible side, but the majority of the list is actionable. I thought that some (like having burning DS2 debris replace the fireworks) were downright inspired.

I don’t know the exact relationship between Ady and 005, but I’m assuming that Ady’s aware of all these requests and the don’t need repeating?

I’m so glad that something of the list still exists. I’m not sure in the light of the sequel trilogy ideas like having two Death Stars at Endor would play out. If Kyber is essential to Death Star building it would explain why they had to use something else to do the same job in episode 7.

As for a change in the Anthem, Jerusalem was mentioned, the only problem I see with that is that it is named after a city that is not in the UK. Jerusalem is in Israel. That is like America using an Anthem named “Paris”. It seems odd to me.

‘Jerusalem’ the poem (set to music) isn’t literally about the actual city of Jerusalem, it’s about England.

In fact it’s specifically about Jerusalem not being in England 😄 It’s a warning about not being complacent and too nationalistic and it’s sung frequently by people who are complacently nationalistic.

Reverting Boba’s voice to the new version wouldn’t be that hard to do if you want to “personalize” your own ESB:R (both interpretations are good but the original one is far more sinister).
Since Ady is no longer willing to do PT:R I guess we won’t see Temuera Morrison’s face when Boba is seducing the cute dancers.

A) Accents being genetically determined is silly.
B) His helmet isn’t transparent I assume he would like to not like to sound the same out of his disguise as he does in his disguise. I speculated for a while that there may have been a woman in that outfit. Then Leia pinched my idea 😄 (honestly I thought it was Luke’s mum around 1981 for a weird few months)

But yeah better Fett voice is here to stay so if you want to change it back do your own versions.

More than likely it was just intended it to be one big planetary shield, and it just wasn’t shown correctly with the rebel hologram. You could still have a shield gate for access to Endor.

I doubt that.
The Rebels on Hoth used their shield to repel bombardment and complicate a land assault but it only covered a small section of the planet. It was a make-shift affair and the Empire had more resources but the shield was designed to protect the station and the generator base itself I doubt it would be feasible for them to extend the shield around the whole planet as well. The construction site is huge as it is. Extending many miles into the atmosphere and surrounding a station the size of a moon.

And we don’t know what kind of punishment he got between movies for thinking like that.

I like the effect. It shows Vader dropping his guard and proving to the Emperor that Vader has become a dangerous liability and not just old and weak. You also get a sense of his evil courtiers and Vader being part of constantly bickering clique only held together by Palpatine’s bloated ego. Any one of them could be a Snoke but he has them all tethered and resentful. Such is politics 😆

Sounds dreadful, Luke is being tempted by the dark side and struggling against it. He snaps when Vader hints at corrupting Leia. Having him crush Fett to death is too out and out dark. But if someone wanted to do this it would require manipulation of existing footage and use of a body double.

On the subject of the Berenst(a/e)in Bears, I’ve learned that some mislabeled videotapes of the cartoon may exist.

You mean you may have found a couple that the alternate universe forgot to tarnish?

Did they ever find the disappearing ho?

Try a different Windows PC. Also, try restarting the PC in question.

Up until last week I could have used my work laptop but now I only have the one machine cursed with losedohs 10. I am quite old so switching off and on was at the forefront of my mind 😄

Windows 10 Update Rollout
Time

I’m trying to make a compilation of fanedits for my cousin and being quite large files I have formatted my memory sticks to be exfat. I was given a Windows machine sometime ago (arrrrgh!) and while it recognised the sticks the first time and transplanted some files onto them when I plugged them in a second time they refuse to recognise them and keeps asking me if I want to format them. When I plug them into my mac I it sees the sticks immediately and plays the files.
I hate Windows but Windows 10 is even more evil than before, everytime I use the bloody thing I want to rage quit life (not entirely serious folks). I think I may have an allergy to windows as it makes me want to sneeze as well.
