To be honest? What was Star Wars? George Lucas!!! It was cool back then in the 70 ties! Nothing ever before was like it..and it had character! 2 little shiny robots that behaved like humans! The n th sequal of something that was major in the past...! My advice? Start something new dont copy Star Wars...and give it some heart again! Put the industry to shame!!!😉 my 2 cents..

So why not finish the project but making it super generic? Strip all star wars terms out. Then when the game is finished, allow for modders to make a conversion mod that will reinsert the star wars material? That way he can finish it and we all can get what we want and no one has to give up on their dreams.

Flexible Houdini Licenses
14 April, 2017
SideFX is constantly rocking the procedural world with its Houdini Engine. Now the company decided to change Houdini Engine licensing to let studios use their licenses on the cloud and give them access to affordable monthly and weekly licenses for greater flexibility.

Here are the new rules:

1) All Houdini Engine floating licenses have been automatically upgraded to Global Access Licences for no additional cost – allowing users to to bring licenses to the cloud for their own use. Until today, Houdini Engine floating licenses were available as either Local Access, which could only be used in a single facility, or Global Access, which could be shared with remote facilities or used on the cloud. Now all Houdini Engine floating licenses are Global Access, yet retain the same price as the Local Access licenses.

2) Weekly rentals have been added to the existing annual and monthly rental options for greater flexibility – price is $35 USD for seven consecutive days.

3) Monthly rental pricing has been significantly reduced – from $195 per month, to $100 per month – making short-term rentals an even more viable option. This shift aligns with the rental price drops for other Houdini products.


You can also get a workstation Houdini Engine license, node-locked to a single computer. You can choose to postpone the start date for the licenses by up to 7 days. All the licenses also feature a Mantra rendering token, upgraded from local to global access.
