This was a for-fun project that a group of Obsidian developers led by Jason Lewis and Terry Hess created together using UE4. It was something we created on our

own time because we're fans of the Star Wars franchise and also because it provided us the opportunity to become more familiar with Unreal. My part involved designing

the layout of the Cantina's exterior and interior as well modeling and texturing the cantina structure and barware. About 90%+ of the exterior modeling and UV work

is mine, Interior modeling and UVs are all mine for the internal structure - walls, floors, ceilings. And I modeled and textured the whole bar - the bartop, bar ceiling, the

shiny steel beverage dispensers, pipes, cups, etc. And a space hookah!

 

The final Unreal build of Docking Bay 94 Mos Eisley is free to explore (there is no gameplay) and it can be downloaded here:

We tried to be true to the spirit of the movie and not get caught up in trying to create a literal translation of the set. In studying the cantina layout I was surprised

at how small the actual movie set for the Cantina interior must have been. The books that are available and diagrams available online all seem to differ in some way

as far as the Cantina's exact layout. I ended up mirroring the interior to create a back room that isn't seen in the actual movie but I think it helped to give our version

of this set a more impressive feel that evokes more of the awe that Star Wars inspired in some of us when we saw it for the first time.
