Hey, glad to be able to bring something that excites so many people!

I'm just waiting for the last few edits to trickle in before I release V2 to the wide world. I want to catch everything I can before calling it.

I'm curious, what have people found most useful/inspiring so far?

I'll share mine: I recently ran my Rebellion-era group through an adventure set on a haunted Harrower-class Dreadnought, and one of the characters stole a vintage (and well-preserved!) D5-Mantis attack craft. It's awesome to see such a huge new chunk of vehicles and gear to populate the universe with!

I play the game itself, and I think this is an excellent Guide! Thank you!

some of the vehicular units are awesome....... indeed. I've used one of the new droids so far.

If I wanted to use the material in a 1e game, how would one back covert? Are there any guidelines for 2e+ to 1e conversions (I know there are 1e to 2e in the Blue 2e book).

Cheers!

While I haven't familiarized myself with 1e (something I've been meaning to remedy), would it be difficult to reverse engineer the conversions printed in the 2e?

its mostly for vehicles and star ships and no in fact is very simple, you simple reverse them directly. The basic species template in second edition can mostly be used as it.... with a few adjustments....... mainly to skills...... or abilities rather that affect skills. Character templates would need rewriting though.

I just checked in today to see if this was done, and lo and behold it's been done for a while. Nice job on it! Any plans to incorporate some of the newest stuff as it gets added, like Shadows of Revan and Knights of the Fallen Empire? Or will you release smaller books to reflect new stuff?

Absolutely! I'd very much like to release new material. Ideally, in the form of expansion-specific sourcebooks. There's so much rich material being produced, it would be a shame to deny D6ers the good stuff!

After the V2 edit is released for the core book, the next step is the gear and equipment book, and that one's gonna be quite lengthy to fit all of the armor and weapons the game has to offer.
