Some Obsidian devs have created Mos Eisley in Unreal Engine 4 just as a fun little project. This is not for any game. Don't want you to get your hopes up! :D

The download clocks in at 7.4 GB, just for one level, which tells you something about the assets. If you've ever wanted to walk around in the most realistic Mos Eisley imaginable, now's your chance!

The project started as a 3DSMax model of the Falcon, and then grew from there. 17 people at Obsidian joined in to provide artwork and other help.

This really pushes graphics hardware, getting about 45fps on a GTX 970/980, so if you have aging hardware you might just get a slideshow.

They are about 90% done with it and plan to add VR support in the future.

UPDATE: A review! Can tech demos have reviews? Is this allowed? What's next? Human Sacrifice, dogs and cats living together, mass hysteria!

There are options you can set to tune this to your hardware, so don't be discouraged by the specs I mentioned above. That was probably with everything on ultra. I got a ton of texture pop-in but otherwise this is gorgeous. The texture pop-in can be minimized by setting the Unreal Engine process to high priority in task manager. Don't do real-time unless you want your system to crash.

Also there's a "hidden weapon" that you can find, but I haven't yet. It's gotta be a lightsaber though right?

This feels like the closest interactive media has ever gotten to real Star Wars. I feel slightly embarrassed to admit that a tech demo made me feel emotions, but this did.

Time for a whole-series rewatch. :D

Updated with a "review"

You should try the Star Wars VR experience. :) I have had the Falcon fly over me, and I have worked on the falcon. I am pretty much an expert in Millennium Falcon repair. :)

I would love to, but I don't have any VR gear.

I found the secret weapon. It's not a lightsaber. It's pretty amazing though.

Is it a laser cat?

Nice. I think I found the secret weapon, or at least another one, but I wasn't sure how to pick it up. I cranked the options and it said my FPS was 62.

Can't wait to try this!

Travis   Admin   Post Author wrote on 09/10/2016 at 04:32am

Greg, if you found it you just walk over it to pick it up (or near it) and you select it with H. Was it in a room with other secret-looking stuff, including pictures from other movies?

GregoPeck   Super Member wrote on 09/10/2016 at 04:38am

Was it orange?

Travis   Admin   Post Author wrote on 09/10/2016 at 02:53pm

Yes.

Tried this on my new laptop and I got the home screen set a few values and tried to start it. It hung each time.

Bummer. It looks really cool.

GregoPeck   Super Member wrote on 09/12/2016 at 03:29am

Are you sure it "hung?" It takes a while to load.

jdodson   Admin wrote on 09/12/2016 at 05:45am

Yeah a couple windows pop up about COOKED or something and then it crashes.

jdodson   Admin wrote on 09/12/2016 at 06:02am

Oh, ok so I did it again and waited a really long time and it finally loaded.

Kind of neat. Didn't find the secret stuff but made my way around it.

LOL Funny weapon. I found it, but I guess I didn't get close enough to it to pick it up.

Hahaha. That's great!
