I'm glad there is some interest in this idea - also, I saw the idea of making a large scale Sandcrawler - pretty cool idea, but I agree with what a couple people at JD said, in that it is probably too big/detailed of a project to be able to pull off.
Also, here's another idea - how about a Jawa settlement, with a few moisture farmers visiting to trade goods? If people wanted to, a small Imperial detachment could be present "looking for two certain droids."
It wouldn't need a large scale sandcrawler at it, but could be more of a fan fiction idea.
Basically here's my thinking -
- large base area (sand or something similar)
- mountain/cliffs backdrop
- Jawa dwellings (small homes, shops, etc)
- droid/vehicle junkyard (area they dump parts they pick up from wrecked ships that won't fit in their sandcrawlers)
- custom sandcrawler-esque vehicle (something smaller than a scale sandcrawler - fan fiction design kind of like the ones seen in KOTOR)
That's just an idea. I am happy there is some interest to help me make some Dantooine buildings for a photonovel, but if you want to get the ball rolling on something soon, I have to admit I am many months away from being able to commit to anything for a photonovel, because I have at least 4-5 chapters before I can get to a Dantooine scene. Maybe even longer... not sure yet. I'd hate to disappoint everyone if my timing was later than expected.
