JA+ Mod 2.3

japlus_v2.3.zip | 24.97 MB

name a few ... with the JA+ mod you can have multiple duels at once, even full force duels, and all of those duels can be isolated so there's no duel interference, there's clan tag protection, option of having multiple taunts, lots of new emotes, a profanity filter, model size scaling system, new items including a grapple hook (perfect if you've just downloaded the new Spiderman skin) and a ton of other features. The newest features for the mod include a Mac patch so that Mac users (are there any out there? If so, freakin' email me ... I have a map I need you to test) can start a JA+ server, a JA+ server tracker, the clan tag protection I already mentioned, and Slider improved some of the already present features. This is an incredible mod that I would definitely be using because it's so configurable if I still ran a JA mod. Great work here. But I wonder, will it ever be done? ;) ~AmosMagee[/quote] It seems to be spread on almost every server this mod. Whats so special about this version? Well I'm not going to list everything, since it would take years of scrolling, but these are a few of them: [b]New Player Animations:[/b] There are hundreds of interesting things here, you can now catch and hang onto ledges, to avoid falling. An extremely good thing for the movie makers out there. The new moves are cool, melee and saber moves. Holstering your saber, when you switch to melee your saber goes to your belt, and if it's a sword it'll go in a holster on your back. It makes the game feel much more 'Jedi-Like'. Excellent for all you Role Players out there. Amkiss, some people hate getting kissed by amkiss spammers, so there's an option to slap them by pressing the push key. [b]JA+ Sabers:[/b] There are a wide range of high quality saber models included with the mod, including the recent File of the week, Dragon's Wing v2, by hatrus. [b]JK2-like moves:[/b] There is an option that you can enable, that makes the moves and physics more like JK2, (Red DFA for example) [b]Gender Support for missing skins:[/b] What this is, is if you dont have a female skin, you will see someone who is wearing that skin as Jan, not Kyle [b]Dimensions[/b] This is somthing that might bring the FFA players and the Honor players together. In JA+ 2.3, there are 'dimensions', you type /amaltdim and you go to an alternate dimension (a no rules one) where there's no grapple hook, and you cant use admin commands on someone (except /amkick) there's no god-chat either there. This is an amazing feature which I'm sure will improve JA+'s status with FFA players. [b]Ampunish and Amslay removed[/b] Two commands that can be abused to hell have been removed [b]Bug Fixes[/b] A large number of bug fixes from the previous version are all here, check out the readme and stuff to see the list. That's just some of it, there's quite a bit here. Everything else is still there too, besides ampunish and amslay. Update your servers and enjoy the new features. -Rink [b]If you just want the client plugin go[/b] [url=http://jediknight2.filefront.com/file/JA_Client_Side_Plugin_v13;41256]here[/url]

Bloody Dismemberment

jabloodydismemberment.zip | 167.38 KB

dismemberment in SP because it was write protected (or was this just a case of using the command line?) Anyway this mod makes it so everyone is dismemberable, everyone spews out blood AND you get the gore sounds too. This is not for the faint of heart or for those who distain from blood in video games - some people love the realism, some people find it very bad...then they go off on a tangent of blaming kids behaviour on it...but anyway! Actually on that note, let me quote the readme as it makes a valid point -Its a game. In the immortal words of Bart Simpson: Don't have a cow, man! -If you have an argument against blood, don't download this file. Talk about in the forums, please don't jam up the comments with arguments. See that? "please don't jam up the comments with arguments"...we don't like that here anyway so head the readme! It actually works really well! The blood looks very much like blood does in most games where it's there by default, clear puddles on the floor with splashes around it and a spray when you first strike someone, it's definately one of the better blood mods out there. Even down to the spot on color and transparency, all nicely done. I have to say thanks to the added noises too; they really make it stand out! -WadeV1589- [file="81937"]Check here for a JK2 version of this mod![/file]

Star Wars Movie Duels

md2_full.exe | 875.49 MB

now, regardless of whether or not you play SP mods. In fact, download it now even if you don't have the game. Go buy the game while you wait. :p Now, I know some of you may look at the file size and freak out - the installer is 875 MB. But it's worth every KB! I don't play SP mods very often, and I just couldn't stop playing. So, let's begin! First off, those menus are excellent. They are easy to navigate and they look nice. Two thumbs up for that alone. :thumbsup: One of the unique things about this mod is that you can play on the good or evil side in most of the scenarios. Taking the side that is supposed to lose usually has some creative storyline involved...in fact, it's quite fun for those people who just love being extraordinarily evil for no reason. Like the first version, the only movie-based duels available are the prequels. I guess it would be rather difficult to create duels based on the original trilogy, what with them being less epic and all. Episode I [b]Short Negotiations[/b] covers the very first fight sequence in Episode I, where Qui-Gon-Jinn and Obi-Wan are sent as ambassadors to Naboo to resolve the trade dispute. There are many embellishments here, but overall, it's true enough to the original story. [b]Outskirts of Tatooine[/b] is the duel between Qui-Gon and Darth Maul right before they depart for Coruscant. This one was mostly true to the story, the only thing it was missing was the bike at the beginning (unless I somehow missed it). [b]Duel of the Fates[/b] - Wowie! Very well done. Beginning in the hangar bay and moving into the purply-white-lightning-tube section, this one had it all. It seemed like every little detail was checked with a fine-tooth comb. Everything worked wonderfully, with one exception - when I took over as Obi-Wan and the force fields released, I ran backwards and was locked out. After a very long, patient wait, I decided it was time to noclip back in and finish the job. The ending cutscene did not disappoint, either. Episode II [b]Escape Jengo Fett[/b] is a recreation of the fight between Obi-Wan and Jango on one of Kamino's landing pads. I didn't play the winning side, so I can't say whether or not the fight is entirely accurate. When I played as Obi-Wan, the fight consisted of Boba flying around shooting while Obi-wan tried to slash him up. After enough damage was dealt, a fistfight ensued. [b]Tusken Camp[/b] should be pretty obvious by the name. Anakin is looking for his mother, and he has found the Tusken camp. The mission is simply to break into the tent from the back and discover your mother is dead. Then all tuskens must be destroyed. On paper, it's short, but in-game, it's a little longer than that. [b]Geonosis Arena[/b] begins with Windu's appearance during Obi-Wan, Anakin and Padme's execution. I had some serious problems while testing this one...when the battle began and I jumped into the arena, the game lagged terribly. I assume this is because of all the AI calculations happening at once - but still, I'm running a 2 GHz core 2 duo - I shouldn't have any problems with that. Immediately afterward, I was looking for the path to travel on next, and I stumbled on a door that could be force pushed. On opening it, I was able to walk outside the map and see the void in many areas. It was obvious I was on the wrong path...so I turned back and found the correct one. After rescuing Shaak Ti, Jango Fett jumped onto the field. He was the final boss. [b]Battle of Geonosis[/b] was probably the least accurate. A large part of this is due to limitations of the engine and the lack of SP source code, so I'm not going to make a big deal out of it. I just expected "all forward positions are advancing" to mean that somebody, somewhere, was actually advancing. :p [b]Count Dooku's Escape[/b] is the long duel sequence at the end of Episode II with Count Dooku. Everything seemed accurate here, and I didn't see anything wrong. I think the force battle between Yoda and Dooku could have been elongated, but that would have detracted from the play time. Episode III [b]Rescue Over Coruscant[/b] - Defeat Count Dooku. Anakin and Obi-wan fight at first, then you go solo as Anakin. Not much else to say here. [b]Engage General Grievous[/b] includes the original confrontation on Utapau and the ending on the landing pad, where Obi shoots Grievous' insides out. It was a little short, but c'mon, did you really expect to see the entire chase scene recreated as well? [b]Arrest the Chancellor[/b] was probably the best one, aside from Duel of the Fates. Windu and his three Jedi accomplices walk into Palpatine's office to arrest him, and he fights back, saber in hand. Eventually you, as Windu, force palpatine to beg in the corner of the window, then Anakin shows up. From there, your destiny is in your own hands. [b]Attack on the Jedi Temple[/b] was hard. Only a few scenes from here were shown in the movie, like the killing of the younglings. But now, instead of the camera cutting away after your lightsaber comes on, you get to kill them yourself. On top of that, you have a lot of jedi to slice through on your way to the center of the temple. [b]Assassination on Mustafar[/b] involves only one faction - Anakin. You are sent to Mustafar to "take care of" Viceroy Gunray and the other separatist leaders. I was unable to complete the mission without noclip, however - I couldn't figure out how to turn off the force field. Otherwise, well done. [b]Retaking the Jedi Temple[/b] - Obi-Wan and Yoda have already fought through the clones outside, and now they need to clear out the inside of the jedi temple. Clones are everywhere, and some of them have more than just guns. This was pretty fun - I loved running around as little Yoda, dodging shots and jumping into someone's face. [b]Masters of the Force[/b] was the epic duel between Yoda and Palpatine, beginning in the room below the senate chambers and then moving up into the chamber itself for an extremely difficult end...the lightning that Yoda and Palpatine were supposed to shoot back and forth didn't seem to work right, though. [b]Battle of the Heroes[/b] recreates the most intense master/apprentice duel ever in Star Wars. Anakin and Obi-Wan go head-to-head on Mustafar, from the landing pad to the inside of the building, and even across the pipes and onto the equipment hanging over the lava. There was a bug here where Anakin disappeared during a jump sequence...but really, that's easy to overlook when you consider how epic the rest of the duel is. The Rise of the Empire [b]An Old Enemy[/b] - Obi-Wan is hunted down by an old enemy that he thought he defeated long ago. It's Darth Maul - refitted with robots legs. Now you have to finish him off...on a rainy tatooine. Yeah, that was a major eye-popper. Rain on tatooine. But the duel was very interesting. [b]Darth Vader's Redemption[/b] - to become a powerful sith lord, Vader must face his former self and defeat it for good. If he loses, Palpatine dukes it out with the good anakin. [b]A New Hope[/b] was a neat surprise. For you TFU fans, here you go - a mission with Starkiller in it. I don't care for TFU at all, but if you do, I'm sure you'd be happy to play this one. Challenge Mode And if all that wasn't enough, you can play in challenge mode, which takes you from duel to duel with all the major characters. You can customize the character you play as. According to the readme, there are 15 stages. I didn't get very far...I think I should brush up on those lightsaber skills. Along the way, I did spot many small graphical glitches and some areas I felt could use improvement. But I'm going to omit most of that - honestly, the vast amount of work that was put into this mod is incredible. Anyone with the commitment and patience to produce something on this scale deserves a huge pat on the back (at least) from everyone. There was one glitch on the menus that's worthy of note, though - Battle of the Heroes' missing description is incorrect until you start loading the level. One last thing I'll mention - at first, I had difficulty testing this out, because none of the maps would start. Instead, I would be kicked out to the main menu with no error message and no way to quit the game except ctrl+alt+del. After several hours of checking installations and making new isolated copies of the game, I remembered to insert the game disc. From then on, it was smooth sailing. You may commence jeering laughter at me. But remember - if you get an error while loading a map, you will get no error screen and instead will have to ctrl+alt+del your way out of the game. It's not a bug - it's an engine limitation, and it's just a minor side effect of having an awesome menu setup. If you still haven't started the download, do so, and play it when you get a little free time. You won't be disappointed. ~Dretzel

JEDI Costumization PLUS

jedi_costumization_plusfd.zip | 49.25 MB

skins. There are at least 49 new styles of heads, and 3 to 4 different versions of the same style, so there is at least 147 new heads for the Anakin model in this pack. There are at least 21 different torso styles, with about 3 versions per style (robed, unrobed, or hooded), and at least 21 new legs to match. Altogether, there are over 125000, unless my math is off, and I am fairly certain that it isn't. (129024 according to the readme... :p) Needless to say, this is split up into a lot of different species in the SP customization menu. There is far too much to have all in one menu. But it is split up and put together in a way that allows you to choose the combination that you want to have. Now onto the skins themselves... Each one is of very high quality, like the Aviar Lord skins were (Acutally, the Aviar Lord skins are included in this too :p), and the heads are pretty much all original. The clothes, though, aren't quite as original as the heads. But that is not the author's fault. There is only so much you can do with the clothes on the Anakin model, and I think that almost everything that can be realistically done to them has been done. I'd go more in depth about what they all look like if it weren't for the fact that it would pretty much be impossible to do so, so I will instead leave it up to the screenshots to tell you. I honestly couldn't find very much to complain about for this pack with one exception: This caused some problems with the default JA stuff. I popped it into my base folder and went to play SP a bit, and found that stormtroopers no longer spawned. Of course, that could be because I have so much other crap in my base folder as well. And, that shouldn't bug too many of you, since not many seem to play SP much these days, and I found no problems in MP. Anyway, this is a huge file, but I found every single byte of it to be worth it. I highly recommend this pack for people to download.

bloodPLUS Gore/Dismemberment Mod

bloodplus.zip | 3.46 MB

here. v1.5 - the earlier release - features more of a "splat" variant, which while more moderate than the latter, is a tad more cartoony. I'll give the new sounds one thing to their credit - they sure are squicky. v3.1 differs from v1.5 in that it's more of a 'spurt' effect. Think GTA Vice City after blowing someone's limbs off, and you're not far wrong. Obviously, as with any mod that comes in two versions, only install one at a time. Other than that if you want a bit of 'realism' - or you're just one seriously sick puppy - this one may interest you. It's definitely more vicious than other blood mods I've used. ~ Kouen

Movie Battles II V0.0.2 - Full

mbii_v0.0.2_full.zip | 1.1 GB

never anything on this level. I present to you, Movie Battles II, the product of untold hours of work from some of the best and brightest skinners, mappers, coders and modder's ever to play Jedi Knight. I have to say a massive thank you right now to the Movie Battles II team, not only for allowing me to review their gargantuan mod, but also for allowing us to host the file here on JKFiles, where it will join the ranks of the most famous Jedi Knight mods of all time, here in our Great Library of Jedi Knight-exandria. ;) This is going to be a biiiigg review! Whew, where to start?! Well, firstly I have to say that although I really love the mod and think it is great how it has become so popular, popular enough indeed to have its own community within the wider JKA community, I cant help but feel a little worried. Why? Well, I cant help but feel that in order to produce a mod of such grand scope and fantastic quality, they have poached some of the best talent from JKA in general. For example, many of the incredible skins, weapons and even maps are only available for MB2, which is kind of a loss for the JKA community in generally, unless you are somewhat sneaky and take a skin out of the MB2 assets and pack it up for personal use in JKA. Ehm, not that I am endorsing that at all... muahaha... ;) Personally I would really love to see more of the MB2 assets available to base JKA players in general, since that would help keep [i]both[/i] communities strong and provide us with a long stream of excellent files to review! But that is of course up to the MB2 team and the individual authors. Since this is the latest version of Movie Battles II, what improvements does it include? Well, for a more comprehensive list you can see the changelog, but to highlight some of the major ones; [*] Multiple new maps, including the Emperors Spire and Malachor V [*] Updates to various existing maps, such as Duel of the Fates and Tatooine. [*] Fantastic mini-maps for most of the maps, which give you a detailed overview of your location in the map and the location of others, you can also enable a larger overview map from the Movie Battles II options. This is one of my personal favourite features! [*] Lots of new bug fixes. [*] Lots of new gameplay tweaks and improvements, including the abilities purchases using the points system (again, see the more detailed changelog for details!). [*] Some new weapon sounds and various improved effects. [*] Too many more to mention right here! So what kind of features does this gigantic mod have? Weellll... [b][u]Models and Skins[/u][/b] For starters, there is a vast selection of models and skins there are available to choose from, out of each class that you can choose from ingame, there are several, sometimes even a dozen or so, different skins or models you can choose from. For instance, the Sith Class features, among others; Darth Traya, Count Dooku, Jerec, several versions of Darth Maul, Darth Malak and even Darth Talon! And that is only one [i]class[/i]! Along with that there are yet more skins/models available in Full Authentic mode that are not available in Open mode, including, but not limited to; Darth Revan, Bastila, numerous Clone Trooper skins and other equally cool characters! (PLEASE MB2 guys, release that Revan skin for Base JKA, that would be an instant hit!). Bear in mind that these are all made by top notch modelers and skinners, and so all are fantastic quality. Most of the custom models/skins also have custom sounds to go with them, rounding them off nicely. Multiply this by the several classes that there are to choose from, both on the light and dark team sides and you get a he amount of skins and models, the work that must have gone into the skins and models along must have been huge. [b][u]Weapons and Effects[/u][/b] Then there are the new weapons and the effects that go with them. For instance, there is the Westar M5 and BlasTech A280 Blaster Rifles, (I happen to own a very nice A280 in Star Wars Galaxies ;)) as well as the Fallann Hyper Rifle as used by Zam Wesell in Episode II. Various weapons also have additional features which can be unlocked by purchasing points in the relative categories in the points screen, For instance if you fully upgrade the A280, not only do you get the ability to rapid fire, but also a sniper scope too, further increasing the weapons potency. That's not to mention the rocket launchers and various pistols and carbines, all modeled in high quality and with custom effects and sounds! Then there are several different kinds of grenades as well, which are available to particular classes (once you have spent the points to get them of course). While I am on the subject of effects, I should mention that you definitely need to play ingame to see how good they are, since no screenshots could do them justice. The way lumps of debris fly out of an explosion with a trail of dust and other such things are much more realistic than the Base JKA effects and definitely add to the combat. There are also two different levels of effects, normal; which is, well, normal, and high; which is more graphically intensive but also looks much better. Obviously if you have a powerful computer, you will want to use the full fat 'high' mode. But its good that there is also a lower setting so that people with older computers aren't shut out. The lightsaber blades and trails though are something pretty special. Unlike the base JKA saber blades and trails that we are all used to, when you swing a lightsaber in MB2, the trail actually looks like like the sharp blur (oxymoron's FTW!) of a moving lightsaber as you see in the films, rather than just a fuzzy trail out behind the blade like they are in Base JKA. The only other mod to my knowledge that has this impressive effect is the Open Jedi Project. PLEASE somebody make a mod which gives us these kind of movie realistic blades and saber trails in Base JKA! [b][u]Maps[/u][/b] Well, I already mentioned that this latest version of MB2 adds the Emperor's Spire and Malachor V, among others to MB2's already impressive repertoire or maps. Some of the other movie themed maps include, but are not limited to: Mustafar, Tatooine, Mygeeto, a Trade Federation Battleship (as seen at the start of Episode I), The Star Forge, The Valley of the Jedi, Kamino, Utapau, the Tantive IV and many, many more! The maps are the only area where I feel some improvements could be made, since some of them date to way back and aren't up to the same kind of standards of detailing and such that the newer maps are. That isn't to say older maps such as Lunar Base aren't great too, in fact gameplay wise they are just as good as the newer ones, I just feel they could do with a bit of a sprucing up detail wise. Speaking of Lunar Base, I just love that window which, when broken, sucks people out into space! In this new version, it also amazingly registers kills and team kills! Some of the best mappers around have made maps for Movie Battles II, and no doubt as more updates are released more maps and locations will be added. What is my favourite map? Well, that is a touch choice! So many of the maps are beautiful to look at (gotta love that Mustafar Skybox!) and feel alive and interactive. I did very much like the Malachor V Trayus Core duel map, since good KotOR 2 themed maps seem to be lacking from JKA, but I also liked Lunar Base because of its excellent layout and gameplay. But then Comm Tower is also a great map, and it reminds me of the original Jedi Knight and JK2 as well. Well, I guess I cant pick a favourite myself, not without spending a lot more time playing MB2 to find out all the ins and outs of each map anyways. As I mentioned earlier, many of the maps now also have mini maps which are displayed in the HUD, this is one of my favourite features as it actually shows a map, with [i]walls[/i], unlike the Base JKA radar map, which only shows objectives and such. This makes it much easier to tell where your team mates, objectives and enemies are in relation to the structure and layout of the map. That brings me nicely onto... [b][u]The HUD and Menu's[/u][/b] As well as having a nice new mini map, the entire HUD has been revamped with new graphics. There are two new indicators on each side of the screen for your health, shields, ammo, force and saber style, which look much better and sleeker than the base JKA ones. I personally would love to see these parts of this HUD used for a Base JKA HUD mod, if any of the MB2 guys would care to make one for us *nudge nudge*. ;) There is an options menu section dedicated to MB2 options, including setting keys for your class special actions (such as being able to sprint faster for a limited period etc.) and also a media section for setting your screenshot key, and the ability to set a key to record a Demo movie! Whilst I personally prefer to use Fraps, this is definitely a much needed option in JKA and one that I am sure people will find useful. The menu's overall are easy to navigate and look good, the main menu, with that picture of the sun bursting over the horizon of Coruscant is very nice, although I think it would be even better if there was a set of screenshots or images that the main menu background cycled through, just to add a bit more movement to it (since it seems a little still compared to the Base JKA menu, with its little video set in the middle). [b][u]General Gameplay[/u][/b] The main complaint that I have always had with Movie Battles II was that you can die quite quickly, and you don't respawn. That is unless you have spent points in the section which allows your particular class to respawn, 'reinforcements' I think it is called. This complaint has most likely come from being someone who has played and enjoyed a lot of Siege, a gametype in which the gameplay is fast and furious because people are constantly dying, respawning and running like headless chickens to get back into the action, making for some insanely frantic battles. Indeed on Siege Hoth, if you are a Rebel tech, its not uncommon to put up a shield on the bridge (to stop the AT-ST advancing) and then simply throw yourself into the chasm so you can die, respawn, and put down another shield. Since you often only get one life, maybe a few if you have spent points in 'reinforcements', in MB2 it stops this kind of insane gameplay, and thus it seemed a bit slow to me at first, since I died and then that was it. However, as I have played MB2 more, I have come to appreciate the delicately balanced game mechanics which go into it, and once I got used to it, the dying issue didn't bother me so much, though I still personally prefer the ferocious gameplay of a 16 vs 16 Siege game, but that's just me! :P The features I have mentioned above, such as the vast variety of weapons, skins/models and maps, along with different gametype's makes this pretty much a game in of itself and I can see who it has become so amazingly popular. The points system does take a little getting used to and you have to be quick when you start to spend those points where you want them before the round starts. The class system, and the abilities and weapons available to each can also be bewildering at first, but with a bit of practice you will soon get used to it! One nice new feature for this version is that you can now continue to move while using voice chat, which makes the process both quicker and less hazardous to your health. After all stopping in the middle of a fight to open up the voice options and find the button for 'roger!' is likely to get you killed! This latest version of MB2 is full of neat little features like that, and I am sure more of the same will be added in future versions so further enhance gameplay. [b][u]Conclusion[/u][/b] All in all a monumental mod, more of an entirely new game in itself to be honest. If you want to know more about what is new for this version, then you should check out the changelog which is in the readme section below. The full readme for the mod can be found in the .zip. The only downside with downloading this is the sheer insane size of it. In fact it is very close to the size of Base JKA itself! This is definitely worth a download, and you guys had better make sure this gets to the top of our download charts, since the MB2 team is paying me 2 Millio... uhh, did I say that out loud?! Umm, cookies, that's it, yeah they are giving me cookies to review this. They aren't bribing me with millions of dollars to give them a good review, not at all. Complete nonsense! Don't forget to view the videos below! ;) ~Nozyspy~ Subaru is awesome. There you go, I actually put that in here! View the video below to get a taster of what Movie Battles II is like: And here, for your viewing pleasure, a preview of things to come!

Enhanced Saber Realism

enhancedsaberrealism.zip | 8.75 MB

version 2 of the original mod. Panda expressly told the author [i]not[/i] to refer to it as such, but he seemed to feel the need to anyway, so just keep in mind that this is nothing more than an unofficial fix/update and that pandapop999 is already planning a [i]real[/i] version 2 himself. [i][b]Anyway...[/i][/b] This changes a few things from the original, mainly being that speed has been increased, boss NPC stats have been normalized, and dismemberment has been added. This should appease those people who felt that the mod moved much too slowly. Certainly an improvement over the original in some areas, but you'll have to decide for yourself whether or not you want to replace the original with this one. ~Inyri

Spanki's SITH Customization

spankis_sith_customization.zip | 98.89 MB

us get started. FIrst off, I shall give out the basic stats that Spanki provided for us in the readme. Not including the bonus skins of famous SW characters he provided, the customization offers: - 27 customization screens - 96 customizable heads ( + 11 unique heads of RPG chars ) - 288 customizable torsos ( + 11 unique torsos of RPG chars ) - 20 customizable boots - red and blue glowing lights variations - 552.960 possibilities at all These factors are no doubt earth-shatteringly astounding to the publics eyes, no less. This, however, presents a problem to those who enjoy the JCP: 32 customization screens is the limit on JA, and as such, you're left to either fend for yourself in hunting for the right outfit, or you'll have to dump one. Sort of disappointing, actually, because I felt like this could have been prevented. The reason I say this is because most of the focus on this pack was mostly in the TORSOS, as opposed to the heads. There are only actually 3 "sets" of heads to work with, so to speak. Whilst you were given slightly limited clothing options with 6 sets of heads in the JCP, now you have 3 sets with MASSIVE clothing options. Honestly, *I* personally didn't like the trade off, as it resulted in the above problem, and the head selection was a little out there for my tastes. Granted, the above paragraph IN NO WAY states that this skin pack is bad. Suffice to say, it's magnificent to behold and use. However, I'm not the kind of guy who likes his Sith to be dressed in enough aesthetics to mask his entire ethnicity half the time and be mistaken for a gluttonous merchant. Whilst this is not the case in this pack, I did notice that there weren't exactly a lot of normal, human faces. The first set of faces is dark, brooding, and unnatural looking, as a typical Sith would look like. The second set features mostly alien races. The third set is a mixture of some human and alien races. Most of the human faces in this section aren't very diverse, however. They tend to sport similar features, and as I mentioned before, there's no average looking face. Not every Dark force user bathes in pure Darkside in the morning o_O. Gripes aside, we move onto the massive department store of outfits. My word, looks like black and brooding is in this season, eh? =_o A lot of the clothing options here were pretty dark, but a lot of them sported SOME form of alternating color, so as not to make every outfit the same. Armor variations and what have you were also included in this pack, so you can go into combat well-armed. Featured exclusively in this customization to stand out from the JCP would be the ability to have a "hood only" customization option, so as to mask your visage without having the heavy robe to carry about. Diverting away from the customization section, we can see in our menu that we have 11 delicious characters to select now. They are: Exar Khun Darth Bane Darth Krayt A´shared Hett Darth Kruhl Ulic Qel Droma Kyp Durron Cade Skywalker Aviar Jagged Fel Nomi Sunrider ( I wanted to include something for the ladies :P ) Apparently one female skin was enough to say he was throwing the ladies a bone XD ⌐_⌐.... Moving on, it is safe to say that all of these skins are amazingly awesome to behold. They're finely crafted, although a lot of them don't seem to sport hooded versions. Ah well. Sounds. The majority of the sounds in this pack were composed of altered Kyle and Jaden(both genders if I'm not mistaken,) soundbits. Some taunts sounded out of place for some of the RPG characters presented, and I wasn't too thrilled when the customizations were stuck with a monstrous form of dark side Jaden's overacted lines, but overall, they were still a pretty well chosen set of sounds. So =_= here it is. Now you must decide for yourself whether to remain on your so called path of light or embrace the power of emotion, and unleash the true fury of humanoid-kind. Those willing for the latter(or both O_o) are more than encouraged to submit bandwidth to this powerful pack of skins. Me? Eh, might keep it, might not. Either way, it still stomps colons.

Darth Vader

vadervm2.2.zip | 1.81 MB

Luke Skywalker and the character who made star wars so popular (in my opinion of course), Mars has captured Vader PERFECTLY in everyway from the shine on his helmet, the real-like textures on his cape and the metal parts on the suit, it all looks marvellously realistic. It was a treat to go into the game and run around in game with this fantastic model, it's a model that everyone would surely like, even if they don't use it they'll download it. The sounds are there, when you roll he does the whole machine-breathing thing, there are team colors, an unmasked version, which looks amazingly accurate, and even a white Vader version! This is a true treat for anyone who plays this game, Mars and Psyko have done an awesome job. Download this or I will have to use Level 3 Force-Poke-With-Stick on you. New Sounds: Yes Bot Support; Indeed Team Support: Yeah! -Rink[/quote] Darth Daddy's Back, version 2.2 include LOTS more stuff than version one. One of the very few complaints about version one was the eyes, although alot liked them a few didn't saying how they didn't match the real vader. In this version, there are multiple Vader skins you can choose from, the episode III suit, the original trilogy suit and the others like white, no mask, default (yeah with them cool eyes), red and blue (which have been improve greatly). As well as a few little bug fixes and NPC support (there's a few NPC's you can spawn), there is now 'troop' support. Explained in the readme, in singleplayer you can spawn stormtroopers and get them to follow you. HOW COOL IS THAT?. I don't think the model could get any better, 10/10.

HS Anakin Skywalker

hs_anakin.zip | 10.62 MB

[b]three[/b] - amazing soundsets. If you thought the Anakin soundsets out there already were good, have a listen to these. With a minimal amount of background noise and music, these sounds will really make you feel like you [b]are[/b] Anakin Skywalker, rather than just watching him. The soundsets include an Episode 2 soundset, a neutral Episode 3 soundset, and a more Sith-like Episode 3 soundset. Of course Anakin must match his voice, so several clothing variations have been included: Episode 2 \'fro hair, normal Episode 3 duds, hooded and unhooded robes, and a battle-worn version. You\'ve all seen the WIP images that have been spread around the various community forums, and the model certainly lives up to the images. With an accurate mesh, beautiful texturing, and Infinity Blade\'s characteristically (near) perfect weighting, there\'s very little you could find to complain about. HapSlash has even gone so far as to include three head meshes: an Episode 2 head, and two Episode 3 heads with slightly differently shaped hair. Since we\'ve been waiting for, oh, about a year for this model, you\'d expect it would come with all the extras. And indeed it does. Some very tasteful team support, various NPC options, and of course a bot to play with. It also comes with single-player support (and the mouth is fully rigged for those who actually want to use it in single-player!). This way you can easily access the outfit you want to see! What more could you want? How about some spiffy shaders to complete the feel? You\'ve got it. The best Anakin model out, by a landslide. Download now... as if I had to tell you!

Obi-Wan Kenobi

hs_kenobi_rots.zip | 7.35 MB

work of art - I find it hard to believe a modder could come up with better than Raven ever could - just look at what they turned Luke into - yet here's proof! Obi-Wan's face is spot on, and I mean right down to that little warty thing by his nose. I review loads of Star-Wars based models, but most of them are only recognisable by the clothes, because the face always seems... wrong. And this is why I love this model over all of those :D Sure, he looks in a slightly angry mood, but by my standards I'd pick this model over any other one currently out for JK3. Obi comes with full Bot, NPC and Team Support, and 4 different skins. My favourites are the classic robed versions, which come hoodless and non-hoodless, but the war-torn version of his normal clothes (minus the robe) and his standard outfit are also very impressive, and the textures have been modelled to a high standard. The hair, which is usually the worst part of a model, is also very close to the real thing, and I am absolutely positive every Obi-Wan fan will want to download this. Now, and some of you are gonna hate me for this - there are a few small problems, but let me stress that whilst they are small, they still should be fixed. Firstly the single-player selection doesn't work - it comes up with a model not found error and I end up as a stormtrooper. It still works through the console, but I was kinda looking forward to seeing Obi in the cutscenes. I don't think it's a problem on my end, but it could be. Secondly, while most of the sounds are fitting, some have music in the background, which sounds wierd to me. Still, it's not like I ever use taunts ingame. ;) Also included in the file is Kenobi's saber from Episode 3. I have never looked closely at his saber so I can't vouch for its realism, but it does look very good. It is also in a seperate pk3 from the SP model and the normal MP model so you can remove it if you wish. I have no doubt this will be a highly-downloaded model, and I am also sure it will keep all the Anakin fans appeased untill HapSlash releases his episode 3 model :) New Sounds: Yes Team Support: Yes Bot Support: Yes NPC Support: Yes ~Szico VII~

-A- Hilts

-a-hilts.zip | 2.71 MB

have custom stances and some have altered sabers, like the really short one. The only hilts that I didn\'t really like were the reversed saber ones. Like, you hold the hilt in front of you, with the saber behind you, sorta. You\'ll have to test the hilts to see what I mean. Some of the hilts here, I really like, but I\'d rather use the hilts without the altered stances and animations. This hilt pack didn\'t really need any new sounds added. They are, after all, still just sabers. And I\'m glad there are no new sounds, actually. As much as I like some of the hilts here, I won\'t be keeping this pack. There are just too many here that I don\'t like. But the file size is small enough that it shouldn\'t be too much of a hinderance for you guys to download it. So, enjoy. :) ~AmosMagee

Jedi's Home (JL) II

jedihomejl_ii.zip | 15.18 MB

really, after all considering what a smash hit the original Jedi’s Home was, it should have occurred to me that there was a good possibility for a v2. Oh well, I always seem to miss the obvious! Anywayyy…on with the review! Now, on the whole I liked the original map, it was roomy, good for clans, and had some great secrets. However there were a few things that bugged me quite a bit, one of which was the texturing in one or two areas, like that dark blue carpet in the main hall. It drove me mad trying to duel there, because I could never see my character, or my opponent properly. They just seemed to blend in with the dark carpet! Of course, when I lost because of that, I’m not sure anyone believed me when I said it was all the carpets fault. Surely other people had the same problem though? One of the main things a v2 should always accomplish is to correct the errors, or not so good bits of its predecessor. The worst case scenario is that a v2 would expand upon the not so good bits of its predecessor and get worse! I am happy to say that isn’t the case here. If you liked the original Jedi’s Home, your gonna be drooling over this one! :D Lets move onto the architecture first of all. This is really a map and a half, the architecture looks great all over. Wonderful smooth flowing lines, along with grand staircases and a lot of nice architectural detailing makes this an excellent map visually. It also feels a lot more solidly built than the original, but I guess a Jedi safe house needs to be though right? Some areas which I particularly liked was of course the wonderful main hall, with that great ceiling, but also the kind of modern-Japanese style dojo room thingies. At least that’s what they looked like to me! There is some nice architectural features and texturing in there, and the lights look pretty nifty too. ;) Now, that brings me onto the texturing, which is also very impressive. Quite a bit of the texturing in the main areas of the map is in relatively plain and simple textures, but nice looking ones nevertheless. Plain or simple textures are certainly not a bad thing if they are used properly however. In this map they are used very well I think, and personally I think they really bring out the wonderful architecture, whereas complicated, cluttered textures would draw your eye away from the architecture and more onto the texturing. There have also been some nice new shiny marble textures added to the map here and there, which i think looked rather posh! Best of all though (in my opinion at least) is that the carpet in the main area now looks much better, so hopefully I wont keep loosing my duels so much due to the colour of the carpet. I bet you still don’t believe me about that do you! :P Anyway… Just like the original, there is sooo much to explore on this map. The map itself is gigantic, and of course, theres plenty of secrets! One of the coolest bits I thought, was a transport ship that’s outside on a landing platform. Step on the boarding ramp undernieth and it brings you up into the bowls of the ship. However, if you move into the cockpit and press the controls, you can fire its laser cannons! Hopefully none of your friends will be standing infront of it…or maybe that was the idea? Mwahaha… Theres a totally revamped medical room, and also a cool duel room with a glass box that closes around the duelers (sorta like the one in Sith Council). As I said above, there is of course, plenty of secrets here. Theres hidden chambers, as well as come nifty floating dueling platforms in the sky, though I couldn’t figure out how to get there normally…I had to use noclip. Still, I imagine theres a teleporter somewhere for that. One secret that I thought was very cool was this security room that I found. It had a big screen on the wall where you could actually see one of the corridors in the map, and also when people walking through it. Just like a proper security camera! The only thing that I didn’t really like in the map was the fact that you had to press the use button on some of the doors to open them. Doing that just gets a bit irritating after a while, because I keep walking into doors expecting them to open! Owch… Besides that though I don’t remember noticing any substantial bugs, or any bugs at all for that matter! So, lets round up a few pro’s and con’s before we finish up. Pro’s: [*]An excellent map for clans. [*]Excellent looking architecture, you gotta love all those curves! [*]Solid and well-made brushwork. [*]Beautiful texturing and lighting. [*]Plenty of secrets to discover! Con’s: [*]It is very large, which can lead to you getting a bit lost if you don’t know the map well. [*]You have to press the use button on some of the doors to get them to open, which gets a little irritating after a while. This really is a superb map, which will be great for clans or RPG folk, or anyone who appreciates a well made and good looking map. An excellent map all round, be sure to give it a download!

there now happens to be \"1628 total variations, without using any of the original heads or 5 out 6 of the original torsos.\" The new looks are just lovely. I don\'t particularly care for the orange one in the third screenshot, but it\'s nice to have more choices. :) I really like that last one ... the blue one. And with the new hair colors, it just gives this particular face a softer look, y\'know? There\'s not much more I can say other than - DO MORE! ;) I would love to see more new styles for the human female. Especially some different faces - if possible. And maybe make some more clothing options that are more like the Zabrak and Twi\'lek styles available for the human. Anyway, great job. :D ~AmosMagee

Star Wars Episode 1: Duel Of The Fates v3

star_wars_episode_i_duel_of_the_fates_version_3.zip | 40.96 MB

that's one thumbs of for this map already! This is version 3 of JamyzGenius Duel of the Fates map. From what I remember we kinda skipped v2, because he sent in v3 while v2 was still in the waiting list, but looking over v1, which we will say is the previous version, there is a massive improvement! I am most impressed with the improvement in JamyzGenius' skills all round in fact, the architecture, texturing and lighting is of a nice standard in this map, gone are the full-bright rooms and repeating textures, now the lighting is natural and the textures and structure of the map look nicely accurate to the film. There are still things that need to be worked on however. For example, in the generator room, if you are on the lowest platforms and look up, you will notice you get a hall of mirrors (HOM) effect, because the room is so tall that the game is not rendering anything past a certain limit. To fix this I think you will have to change the distance cull limit (it is a world-spawn command if I remember rightly), the same thing also happens outside on the grassy area. This grassy area could also do with some more natural looking terrain, since the patches used at the moment look a little too 'pointy' and not soft and rounded like terrain should be. Of course, trisoup or quadsoup are the best things to use for terrain making but they can be difficult to use and are a more advanced concept. One other thing I should mention is that the large double doors do not open together. To fix this problem you need to open the entity window on each door at a time and enter the key: [i]team[/i] and the value: [i]door_1[/i] or whatever you want, so long as you put a unique name in for each pair of doors. This will ensure that both doors will open together, as a 'team'! Overall I really liked this map though, the generator room especially was very movie accurate and looked great, the walkways making for perfect places to have a duel or even an FFA Also of note is the long and also massive marble corridor that is accessible via the main hangar. I think it is perhaps a little too tall, the windows a little too high off the floor and the floor texture a bit too stretched, as it makes the character look unusually tiny in comparison to the room. Obviously the room is meant to be massive, but it just doesn't feel quite right to me. Nevertheless, the huge marble columns and those massive flanking windows look fantastic and impressive! All in all a very nice map here, although there are still a few things that could do with further improvement. As I said before, I am most impressed with how far JamyzGenius skills have come and I definitely look forward to seeing more from him! :D [b]New Textures:[/b] Yes [b]New Sounds:[/b] No [b]New Music:[/b] Yes [b]Bot Routes:[/b] Yes [b]Game Types:[/b] FFA, TFFA, Duel, Power Duel ~Nozyspy~

I'll leave the accuracy up to you, but I find the design to be spot on. The saber half of this mod is definitely a keeper. Normal and backhand versions are available. Oh, and did I mention the animation changes to the backhander? :P [b]Effects[/b] From clashes, to lightning, to saber blades, the overall quality of the effects half is rather good. Personally, I find the saber blades to be the best part, but that's a matter of opinion, unfortunately. :P Overall, a nice little mod, and worth the download if you like that saber! ~Crazy [i]Ah, nothing like a nice and short review, eh?[/i]

Ingame Character and Saber Menus

char_saberingamemenus.zip | 8.16 KB

they look while playing, I would either have to start a new game each time I wanted a new part of the skin, or memorize the code for that particular part, both of which were annoying. Well, I now have a mod that will get rid of that problem. What this does is allows you to bind a key to open up the character select screen in SP, allowing you to change how your character looks. It also brings up the saber select menu once you have finished with the character select. Unfortunately, for it to take effect, you have to turn cheats on and type in \"playermodel player\" or just bind a key to do that. Overall, I think that\'s a small price to pay to do what this mod allows you to do. Hopefully a version two will get rid of the need to turn on cheats and reset the playermodel yourself... Give it a download if you find this as useful as I do.

Saber Realism

saber_realism.zip | 8.74 MB

let me cover the basics of what it changes:[list][*]manual blocking[*]slowed combat speed[*]one-hit saber kills[*]massively increased automatic blocking (for compensation to the above point)[*]new saber sounds[*]other stuff listed in the read-me which I didn't get a chance to test (so read it!)[/list]My favorite bit here is the slowed combat speed and the increased blocking. It's a filmer's dream! Not that I make films... :p. Anyway, I am talentless when it comes to JA, but I managed to have some pretty awesome looking fights using this mod with only a mere reborn. So anything that makes JA cooler is a bonus in my book. Then there's the "realism" angle; after all, it's in the name of the mod! Does this make saber fighting more realistic? [i]Yes![/i] When was the last time you saw [i]any[/i] Jedi take 10 hits with a lightsaber before going down? Puh-lease. Is this increased realism a good thing? That's debatable. I like it, because I think despite the one-hit-kills it's still quite balanced (which is where a lot of similar mods fail). When he says blocking was beefed up, he really means it. In case it wasn't clear earlier, there is still automatic blocking. The manual blocking is in [i]addition[/i] to it, and it works as advertised (read the read-me for that). If you want to use this mod in multiplayer, though, you're going to come across a few problems. I'm guessing, based on the batch file, that this mod was designed for SP. In MP some notable "bugs" are the clash effect doesn't work, manual blocking doesn't seem to work, and (maybe it's just my imagination) but the sabers seem faster than in the SP. Overall it's not really working too well in MP, although you could certainly still use it. The author may want to think about working it into a usable MP mod as well, if possible. Did I mention he removed the red stance? :D (Don't cry, it's supposedly coming back in the next version. Except less ghey.) I have [i]one[/i] gripe. The sounds! No, they're not bad. They're just... well, the most common swing sound is like... a fast swing sound. And none of the swings are fast. It bothers me. The author better fix/change it or I'll cry. :p Now if that isn't a [i]minor[/i] gripe, I don't know what is... Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go play through single player to see what else has been changed. :p ~Inyri

HS Jedi Customization

\"knight\" version and a \"padawan\" version. I find the variations provided here a bit boring, however. You get one style, then color variations of it. Nothing is added as in some other packs, there is nothing \"exciting\" about them, unless you really like having different colors of the same thing. No sounds were included, so if you don\'t have the original models these use (HapSlash\'s Obi-wan and Kevin Coyle\'s Anakin) you will likely just hear boring ol\' Jaden. Personally I think the Obi-wan model has just about been beaten to death now. We\'ve got dozens upon dozens of outfits for good ol\' Obi-wan, and I\'m sure he has about six pairs of the same robes now! Please... move on to something new. We can only stand seeing the same things over and over so many times. Other than the single-player support, which is the point of the mod, no extras. These skins aren\'t even usable without using the customizations creen. They just have looots of colors. Bot Support: No Team Support: No New Sounds: No NPC Support: No ~Inyri

Clone Wars Stances and Effects Mod

zzzzzclonewarsmodv6.zip | 24.76 MB

honest, some attacks make a shiver run up my spine. Not only that, but there is also added effects, such as, and I quote; New lightning effects, saber blades, and clashing effects. Not to mention new sounds for each of these! Lets start with the Blue stance. I'm not really sure how I'm supposed to describe this, but it seems to be a cross between the art of Fencing and the art of Stabbing at the Ground. As confusing as this sounds, the stance is actually really well done, with a unique spin to it. Literally! The usual Blue Uppercut has been switched around to, what I saw, a series of three spins, all attacking in front of you. This looks slightly silly in the middle of battle, not to mention it doesn't hit everyone around you. That is, unless my calculations were entirely off and I actually did hit that ninja that ran after me... The second portion of the stances involves the 'fabled' Yellow stance. Now, this looks like an honorable position, however is extremely dangerous if put into a real life situation. In short, you hold the saber at a vertical position, what seems to be inches from your nose. Oh, don't get me wrong, the stance looks awesome. It just doesn't seem... practical.... Oh right, the attacks. Most of the swings have been changed, but none so much as the awesome Yellow DFA. Jumping into the air, cutting at the opponents below you, and breaking into a roll has never looked this amazing. Ah, the last of the Single stances. This one is the combination between an axe murderer and a ballet dancer. This stance is possibly my favorite of the three, with an attack that literally caused me goosebumps. You remember the first attack Chancellor Sidi- I mean Palpatine did against those Jedi? Yeah, the one where he spun in a circle, while jumping. Wasn't that cool? I thought it was, which is probably the reason I love Red Stance. The Red DFA has been turned into what I like to call SuperSidious. Now that we're done with the Single stance, lets move on to the speed demon Dual stance. This looks like something out of Soul Calibur, which makes me a very happy person. Alas, that happiness turned into confusion when I pulled up the Dual 'Uppercut'. It seems the player has a tendency to spin their wrists to the point where they would fall off, and they keep going. That confusion turned into happiness again at the end of the first part of the attack, where the user would repeatidly stab the opponent. And it looks awesome. The Dual DFA was harder to pull off, as I was constantly low on my Force power after defeating Raiden, God of Thund- oh, right, review. The user constantly swipes horizontally with both sabers, ending with something I... don't actually remember. I think I was electrocuted right before I did it... Ah, the Staff. Quite an impressive device. Not only can you stab someone in front of you, you can either stab the guy behind you... or even yourself! Jokes aside, the staff has been changed. To my recollection, I remember the stance has been turned into a more docile, calm stance. The Staff 'Uppercut' has been turned into what seems to be a Lightsaber Helicopter. No, you can't fly. It ends with a repeated spinning stab move. The Staff DFA is similar, just without the Helicopter move. This time, the entire body spins in midair, attacking all directions. Whew! So, the saber stances are over and done with, right? Nope! The stances also involve a new walk, which looks amazing if you're into the whole sword-at-side vengeful samurai 'you killed my father' stereotype. The run is the same for each Single stance, which beforementioned samurai can explain, but the Dual makes you run with your arms behind you, and Staff makes you run with the saber in a Bo-staff position. Melee stance has been changed, although it would be extremely useful if the hands were at your side in melee, instead of in front of you. Kinda like idle-saber. To be entirely honest, I never actually used the Force powers, but I did see some difference in the saber. I believe it's brighter, with a more realistic feel to it. The clash effects are gorgeous, especially when I accidently Yellow DFA and decapitate my opponent throught their saber. Yes, I did that on accident... The only few qualms I have are actually quite fixable. First, some attacks look entirely strange, meaning the spinhand in particular. The second one is that melee stance, also fixable with the right coding which I know Hirman has. Finally, the part that this is not an OJP modification like the last ones. I know it's stressful, and I know I don't play OJP, but other people might enjoy this on it. Installation has been provided in the Readme (PLEASE read the readme, it's there for a reason. We can't just random generate these things, you know!), and most modifications are acceptable with things such as Movie Battles II and Jedi Academy Plus. -FILE- New Sounds - Yes New Animations - Yes New Overall - Yes -Denariax-

OJP Enhanced

a new review, as screwing around with said mod a little more allows for more beef. We'll attack some general features first, that will affect all players. [b]General Features[/b] XP System: No longer are points just for strutting around like a chicken whilst you hawk how good you are whilst you secretly cry inside realizing you have nothing better to do than bully kids in a video game =_O Now you have to earn some kills, and gain power =_= each time you join an OJP server, you will have a minimum set of experience points that you can allocate to gain a number of weapons, gadgets, saber stances, and force powers. I screwed around in the Abregado Casino map and gambled for points, and I found that you have to actually kill either a bot or an actual player to gain experience points. General ratio seems to be 3 kills = 1 XP. There are in fact some XP allocation rules(these being but a few): - At certain XP levels, certain stances are locked from the player. - Force Jumpers cannot invest in Jetpack, and vice versa - A player must have 1 point in sense minimum to be a force user. - Certain levels of force user can only invest in one level of gun usage to prevent that "god character" factor. A good thing to note is that if you're in a hurry to get to the real fun, you can skip the whole "Kill, kill KILL, KILL, KILL" and avoid having to stack up all those kills just to get that toy you really want by adjusting the minimum XP count in the advanced server settings. One could also lock certain powers and weapons from here as well, as well as adjust a setting on this: - Timer System: Have trouble with people killing themselves constantly? Chill them out by making them have to wait with a modified siege timer that prolongs spawning until it runs out. Whilst it can be very annoying, it's also very useful for setting points in between bouts of madness and violence. Don't like the timer on your server? Just set 'er to 0 and you can jump right back in. - Holster System: Gunnery is now a more important aspect in this mod(more on that later,) and as such, the team found it appropriate to make things more realistic by coding in a nice system to holster your guns on your character whilst you are not using them. Only irk I found was that saber holstering really doesn't look good strapped to the front of your thigh, nor does it look comfortable. Yes, I'm guessing it's probably the whole "belt" thing, but on most models, it doesn't seem very applicable. - Improved Bots and NPCs: There are some of us out there that don't have the expensive equipment to fight all the time against other players on the internet. Never fear, as the bots have been tweaked to use the OJP saber and gun systems accordingly. Experiment around, as some bots are inclined to use guns, whilst some use sabers. NPCs are now no longer psycho sugar addicts like they were in JA+, and now fight normally. Even the force using cultists do something instead of standing there punching the air idly! A lot of the old functions in JASP work as well. The howler now lives up to its eponymous name(although it doesn't seem to hurt yet.)The assassin droid returns and now effectively has a working forcefield.Even more interesting is that, should you fall to the new NPC AI, most of the time it will actually register as a kill as if you were slain by a player. Example being this most recent one: "Averus Retruthan was blasted by Boba Fett" That was me deciding to let an NPC kill me =_,=. Naturally not all the AI is up to absolute snuff, and there are still bugs to be worked out (I.E. some of the non-human NPC's guns are in the wrong places still,) but it's definitely a 1-up on the older MP AI. - Dodge, Force, and Mishap Meter: One of the more critical elements of gameplay now relies on these three meters. These will control how long you will in essence "live," forcify, and still remain accurate, respectively referring to the above order. More will be applied as the necessary sections arrive. - New Animations: A plethora of new animations from ledge grabbing to a proverbial backhand attack lie in wait for you. Take a look around and see what you can spot =_o! - New First Person view: Gunners and saber users alike can experience battle now from the eyes of their player. Gunners will notice almost immediately that the gun is no longer at like..chest height. You can now look down and see where your gun is, and not feel like a total chode when -CO-OP Mode: Haven't had a chance to try it, but now you can try SP in Cooperative mode =_=! and finally.. - Vehicles: An older, not-as-remembered feature of OJP was that it was going to amplify vehicle functions in some respects. Unfortunately, there's not many functions to speak of on that part, as it seems to have been lost in the quest for saber research, but some vehicles now have some new alternate functions usable only in OJP. The only examples I can think of at this time are: - The droideka can now rotate in place instead of having to back up and go forward like a cheap RC car. (Found in - http://jediknight3.filefront.com/file/Naboo_Hills_21;31144)) - The [file="53196"]Tie-Phantom[/file] vehicle now has an active cloaking function on it. Interestingly enough, some of the vehicles seem to attack on their own if not possessed by a player. These are just but a few of the new general functions, I'm sure, but hopefully enough to have kept you going up until this point =_= now we shall attack the gun and force user aspects, in that order. [b]Mercenaries and gunnery[/b] Guns have finally returned as a force to be reckoned with. Guns are no longer dwarfed by saber using force users now. Cunning can be used effectively now, with the new gun effects. General features of the weapons include: - Ammo Clips/Reloading: every weapon now has less ammo on the count. Out of ammo? Good, reload =_= - DEMP2, Trip Mines, Concussion Rifle? Locked out unless you use cheats. - As forementioned, all guns are now no longer in your first person view by default. It's now more realistic =_>. - Thermal Detonators now can be thrown with a new bind, so you no longer have to actually select the thermal and chuck it. Range is limited though,so don't try and throw it too far. - Gun accuracy is decided by your level of XP in that slot and mishap meter. High mishap = start missing, even if aimed properly. In some cases, if you're not careful, you can be knocked down as well. Dodge will help you evade some of the more lethal attacks whenever necessary. Now, I'll report the effects of each weapon: - Blaster Pistol: Much more powerful shot. At level 3, you get a second pistol at your disposal, and your alt fire is activated, doing mishap damage to enemies, usually knocking them down if you power it enough. Suggestion: Allow the second gun to be an alternate upgrade, like the speed and ammo upgrades for the later guns. - Melee: Effective and useful when outta ammo. - Blaster: Good balanced weapon with an available rate of fire upgrade. - Disruptor: Power seems to vary now with charging in scoped mode. - Bowcaster: An effective powerhouse, now with available scope function at level 3 and a chargeable bolt (doesn't multiply.) - Repeater: Converted into a DC-15 clone rifle. At level 3, an available ammo count upgrade can be made, and the blob can be now fired at the cost of...an entire clip. Quite effective, as the blob now induces knockdown and acts as an explosive(which will be covered later.) - Flechette: Converted into a T-21 Rifle. Rate of fire controled by your tapping power. Damage is a little weak and sparse, in my opinion. - Rocket Launcher, Thermal Detonator, Detpacks: Weapons of the explosive kind don't seem to actually do immediate damage. If your dodge is high enough, and depending on where you are on the blast radius, you will be knocked pretty far. There's sadly no shrapnel or misc. damage, assuming you aren't knocked high enough where the fall will immediately kill you(a good percentage of the time.) If your dodge is low...well then, your body will be BLOWN TO PIECES AND ANNIHILATED. Now, onto the gadgets: - Bacta: Level 1 earns you small bacta, level 2 gives you big bacta - Jetpack: The jetpack has been reinvented with a new dynamic animation system. Lot more heights can be reached with this jetpack, and quite quick. Runs on fuel, of course. - Cloaking: Not much change. Still runs on fuel. - Flamethrower: huge flamethrower effect that runs on fuel. Quite impressive to behold. - Seeker Droid: Now fires stun charges, and if you hit the Use Item button, your Seeker will detach away from your perimeter and actively seek you out. - Sentry Gun: Setup time required, but is a lot more durable and reliable. - Forcefield: Now lasts longer, takes more impact, and even knocks 'tards who run into it down to the ground. This covers the basics of mercenary combat. Now... [b]EPIC FORCE USER COMBAT[/b] Considered to be the proverbial "gem" of the entire mod by the makers, saber combat has been completely redone, and converted into a powerhouse of cinematically epic system of clashing, pwnination, and strategy. Mishap, Force, and Dodge Points now are tested to their limit. Force controls force attacks, including saber swinging. Low FP = slower swings,less force ability. Low Mishap can result in a slowbounce, stagger, knockdown, or even disarming your opponent of his saber! Also, you have to be a lot more careful in watching you and your opponents movements, as you won't simply just swing and hope it hits. You can now engage your opponent with Shii-cho, Djem-So, Soresu, Ataru, Nimen, Juyo, and Makashi(

Revan Dark Star Wars Hilts

been redone to death, these are probably the version you\'ll want. I must say I don\'t think I\'ve seen many hilts that were done better than these. I personally can\'t see one big one that\'s missing: there\'s Yoda, Anakin, Dooku, Maul, you name it, it\'s there. I like these because they have single-player support. That means not only can you use it in multiplayer, but if you\'re one of those strange people like me that still plays single-player, you can use these sabers there as well. The shaders were done very well, also. The result is a pack of 14 beautiful-looking hilts that look great in-game and out. I\'d definitely recommend this if you\'re a hilt buff. If not, I\'d recommend it anyway. They\'re a gorgeous bunch of hilts. ~Inyri

UltimateWeapons

ultimateweapons.zip | 14.52 MB

Version[/file][/b] ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Well here it is finally! The Ultimate Weapons mod v1.3! I reviewed the trailer for this a few weeks back and was deeply impressed with what I saw. Realistic explosion physics and effects, better weapons sounds and better weapons effects too, I was eagerly awaiting the release of this mod, and now…here it is! And it certainly doesn’t disappoint! What we have here is a very comprehensive collection of both some of the author’s own work, and the best of other modder’s work too, all compiled into one all encompassing mod! There’s simply too much for me to describe here, so I will get right to the best bits! [b]New Sounds[/b] As far as I could see (or should I say heard?) it seems like every weapons sound sets have been replaced with movie accurate sounds. One of the most noticeable is the sounds for the E-11 Blaster rifle. To be honest I wasn’t that fond of the default JKA sounds for the E-11, they seemed a bit too high pitched. Thankfully this mod completely changes the sounds to ones that are much more like those you actually here in the films (like the detention center breakout from A New Hope). I also liked the change of sounds for the Flechette launcher and Bryar pistol too. All in all a vast improvement over the default JKA sounds, and that goes for all the weapons! Also included are new lightsaber sounds, which sound more like the ones from the Original Films and also the original Jedi Knight games, along with new sounds for force powers and melee attacks too. I liked the change of the force power sounds, they now sound much more discreet and realistic compared to the rather loud default JKA ones. [b]New Weapons [/b] Here the mod gets even better. Not only does it have completely new sounds, there are also four new weapons or should I say, replacement weapons included. Three are the Bryar pistol, E-11 Blaster rifle and Thermal Detonator from the JKA Dark Forces 2 mod (which replace their respective default weapons), and the other is the DC-15A more commonly known as the Clone Trooper blaster rifle, from the Movie Battles II mod. The new improved repeater rifle, with new shot effects and sounds looks much better than the original, but if you want a change from that, just put the optional DC-15A .pk3 in your base folder and the repeater is replaced with the clone rifle. The Wookiee Bowcaster has also been given a good polish up, as have some of the other weapons. [b]New Weapon Effects[/b] Along with new sounds and some replacement weapons this mod also has new weapon effects. For example, new muzzle flashes and blaster bolts. The projectiles for the repeater rifle have been changed to look bluish and the secondary fire has been changed as well, which I think looks great. Its pretty similar with the rest of the weapons, the E-11 blaster bolts have been changed, and now look much better, as have the firing effects for other weapons. The lightsaber has also received an upgrade with new blades made by D'halaine to look more like the saber blades seen in Episode 3 One interesting case is the Bowcaster. We all know that in the JK Games thus far (at least Mysteries of the Sith, JK2 and JKA) the Bowcaster bolts have traditionally been green. However, if you look at the original films, the Bowcaster bolts are actually red. This mod changes the green bolts to red, thus making it more realistic to the films. If though, you don’t like the red, there is an extra .pk3 you can put in your Base folder, which will change them back green again. But not only does it change the colour, it also improves the green Bowcaster bolt effects, so it is now much improved. [b]New Particle Effects[/b] This was one area I was super happy with! It seems to be an unusual (mostly male) characteristic that we like watching things explode and blow up. Whilst women on the other hand like nice quiet romantic stories…well give me a few explosions any day! :P Well I am very happy to say that the explosions and particle effects have been [b]massively[/b] improved over the default JKA ones. The explosions now actually look like powerful the explosions that you would expect to get from Thermal Detonators or Rocket Launchers. Along with that are all the little chunks of things and sparks and shrapnel that fly everywhere (very realistically). Along with the explosions is the new blaster hit effects. Instead of just a black blob on the wall (or indeed another player!) when you hit it with a blaster bolt, you now get what looks like a proper hole that’s been blasted out. Along with that you also get little glowy bits in the middle, and even a small tongue of flame (also like we saw in the movies when a Stormie blasts a chunk out of a wall). [b]Extras[/b] On top of all of that, as I have already said, there are some replacement weapons, and a handy .pk3 file for changing the Bowcaster bolt colours around from red to green and back again. Then there is also another couple of optional .pk3 files, which you can choose to use. One is a .pk3 file, which is called; ‘zzz_UltimateWeapons_LQEffects.pk3’. As the name suggests if you find that your computer is running slowly with the full-on-super-high-quality effects, you can put that .pk3 in your base folder and it makes the effects simpler and less taxing on your systems resources, which is great if you have a slower computer. I really think that was a nice thing to add in there, as it makes the mod even more accessible to people. :) Lastly we have another optional .pk3 which disables the blood effects in the mod. Personally I’m not that fond of blood effects, since laser bolts and lightsaber blades would in reality cauterise the wound and should stop it from bleeding…there goes my geek side again! :P The blood effects are on as default in the mod, but if you don’t want them to appear, you can put the ‘zzz_UltimateWeapons_NoBlood.pk3’ in your base folder and this will remove the blood splatter effects. [b]Conclusion[/b] All in all then an absolutely fantastic mod here, and what is more, it works in Single Player too! Though there is the possibility that this mod will conflict with other weapons mod’s and such, but that is to be expected considering how many things this changes. So if you want to know more about that, take a look in the files readme for more information. To be honest, this compilation is as close as I think it is possible to get to a perfect all round weapons mod for Jedi Academy, it truly recreates the movie feel in the game. And personally I think that this really breathes some fresh life into JKA when you play it. Fantastic work here D'halaine! I [i]very[/i] strongly recommend a download here, you wont be disappointed! :D ~Nozyspy~

PROTOTYPE mod

prototype_mod_1.0.zip | 1.99 MB

them, but this one had something different. Something...weakening about it. Anyways, there are two files included here. One is a skin of Alex Mercer, and the other is a collection of weaponry from Prototype. I'll start with the skin. I was a little...well, I can't say disappointed, because I didn't expect much from a reborn reskin. Since it's a reskin, it's about as close at it can get. However, the bottom of the white shirt really could have used a more defined edge, and the front of the vest should be unbuttoned. I think the jeans also need some work, too...they don't look too jean-y. No new sounds - altogether, I give it a "meh". Fortunately, the best has been saved for last. Five new sabers have been added that will give you Alex Mercer's hands to hack and slash with. The claws and fist are included, as well as the two-sided blade (don't know what it's called). All of them fit over your hand like a glove (a boxing glove, but still, a glove), so it adds to the feel of being mr. Mercer. Now, because of the glove being there, naturally, there are some bugs. Most notably, when you put away the equipment in JA+ mode, it either sticks out of your chest or sticks into your back. Ouch! It isn't fixable, but who cares, it's worth it. The other one was that the claws and thunder fist both gave a saber glow at the map's origin (I didn't check the sword). I'm sure this is fixable, as I've seen it before. There you have it.

every way... Count Dooku\'s cape isn\'t stiff like on other models, his cape flows nicely, I\'m sure alot of you are glad to hear that :P. There are several skins included with the model, there is the default which is Dooku\'s Episode III robes, an Attack of the Clones version, which is his clothes from Episode II, the team skins and an imperial version (you need to download Hapslash\'s \"Improved Imperial Officer\" to see it) What I really like about the model is the attention to detail, it looks exactly like Christopher Lee, who plays Dooku in the films and there is nearly no clipping what so ever. Not only do you get this awesome model, Hapslash has also included Dooku\'s Lightsaber hilt, and an optional overwrite hilt. There\'s an NPC there, and new sounds. Most of the sounds are from Episode III, and I think they were great choices they fit well into combat. Pretty much the best model to come to JKA so far in my opinion, and I think I speak on behalf of the whole community when I say, Thank You Hapslash and Infinity Blade.

Ben 10 Alien Force

ben.zip | 2.77 MB

from the commercials. In other news, this is a skin representing the alleged protagonist of the "Ben 10 Alien Force" cartoon. As such, the textures and model are surprisingly quite befitting. I'm also rather impressed how the author was able to keep the whole "big eyes" factor and keep the illusion relatively sound. Granted, whilst you can still tell they're not big eyes, it's better than other attempts in the past, I'll say that much. Including with the skin is some sort of "Alien X" whose character I've never heard of, and with a lame name like that, I'd rather not =_o. Basically it looks like a dude in all black leather, covered head to toe, with some sort of star light specular shader. Kind of cool, kind of not, but hey, this is a cartoon we speak of =_=. Overall, the texture work and model selections were decent for a cartoon, but I think only two things bothered me: 1.) I could hardly tell Ben's hair was brown, and it looked black. 2.) The sounds were of mediocre quality. Other than that, not a bad set of skins, especially for a first skin O_o yep, this is the author's first work, and I think it's definitely a great effort. Well done, chap. Proceed onward to Stage 2, and give your hungry audience what they crave =_,=! P.S. - There are also some small bonus extras, like the Buffy's Fist hilt that allows you to do combat without a saber, and the melee sounds have been changed.

Atlantica

atlantica.zip | 143.97 MB

with this map in hands, I can effectively say I've been compensated for mah troubles >_> Forst, background. Conceived for the ::JEDI:: clan by Szico VII, this map, set on planet Mon Calamari, is a soul-harvesting, child-eating, and corn worshiping power house of script, design, and sexy. Seriously, feel free to take a look at the screenshots before reading on if you don't believe me. This map has effectively stamped out all of Szico's predecessors in virtually every aspect. Enough pole-jocking, I say! Let us proceed to a small walkthrough, shall we? To preface, I must note to you all that there are [b]TWO[/b] versions of this map, but both contain the same essential items, save for a couple features. Now then, to start us off on our grand journey, we shall begin with the broad exterior. Starting from an empty landing pad, one can take in and grasp the true beauty of the architecture of the exterior and texture work of the water and skybox. Szico REALLY went all out on this one. It felt like I was really in the middle of Mon Calamari/The Antarctic. The water was crisp, clear, and looked damningly cold. It also blends incredibly smoothly with the skybox, making the map feel very realistic. The skybox suggests that we're sequestered in a valley of sorts, and quite exquisitely, at that. Moving on from the background, we find ourselves staring at a monstrous dome of sorts, with a tower atop it, along with several other jutting extremities coming from outside the dome. This empty pad contains an interesting little device, but I shall save it for later. LETS PROCEED INTO THE DOME. The dome is massive, and made almost completely out of glass. It's quite an excellent observation area. The inside of the dome is what I like to call "rage city," as it has enough destructibles to almost completely wreck up the place. The overhanging lights can be pulled down on top of your opponents and kill them, you can kill the lights to the stairs, the main halo light,knock a monument down, and pretty much own every tree there is with your saber. It's beastly, without a doubt. Looking forth at the other extremities, we'll just glance over at the delicious shuttle that takes off and lands every few minutes, and proceed to the strange little spiral staircase. Inside? A room, with a familiar object of chaos...go ahead and pull the switch, I dares you =_>. I daren't say more, so let us return to the surface! Returning back to our empty pad, we'll finally discuss one of the scripted specialty features: dynamic elevators. Ah, yes, this one's a doozy. What sets this one apart from others other than the earth-shaking scripting? Simple: It's a BEAM-LINE elevator. As the elevator is hailed, you can see the beam path the elevator pad glides along with great ease. It is, without a doubt, quite awesome to behold. Granted, in some angles it looks very 2D, but it can be overlooked for the greater good, here. From this pad, we can either choose to go to the shuttle's landing pad, or to the command tower. Let's go command things, shall we? Once we hit the tower, one must circle around to the next elevator to get to the peak of the tower. Now to call down the next--WHAT?!? WARNING: LIFT RESTRICTION?! CURSE YOU DIRTY AND GLUTTONOUS STAFF. Force users at this point will have to manually climb up the tower(or just respawn there,) and push the crate off the elevator. Foulness, indeed. Afterwards, the elevator works. At the top of the tower is the admin room, a simple room that has more practical value in the RPG version, which will be explained later. Activate the console with the code provided in the readme, and all shall be revealed. See below at the end of the review, as the code here IS customizable. Now, it's time to FINALLY go inside, having left a few unturned stones for you to discover out there later. Retreating to a particular extremity adjacent to the dome, we shall be entering by a contact-triggered elevator. Quite stylish, I know. Step on the arrow as you walk in, and our journey shall begin. Landing in the awesome nexus, there are a huge plethora of doors. Eenie, meany, MINEY, MO! Well, wouldja look at that? A BAR. Hasn't anyone heard of an actual restaurant in this community? I mean you could include a bar IN IT, but RPG'ers needa eat @_@. Moving on, this bar is eloquently designed in the oval structure, allowing for more movement of the bartender. In the corner is a window to one of the most awesome skyboxes I've seen. It makes you feel like you're actually underwater >_> seriously. Anyway, evading subjective fits of rage, lets bail out for the next door into the detention center. Now THIS is what I call a detention center. Forcefields, steel doors, and controlled gun turrets make great security measures, and hurt many feelings. Now granted, it woulda been nice if he installed like, poopers, so people can poop, but hardly anybody lets forth a corn log in RP anymore(at least, in serious RP >_> it's too cool for them.) Anyway, let us take flight from this deliciously miserable place. Oh yes, by the way, please scorn and laugh at Szico for not being able to properly read and spell my name in that screenshot. Whilst that screenshot with my "name" in it was doctored(so I don't have a private cell), I just want to make him feel retarded anyway XD Let's GO TO TEH PARK! WOOT. Moving swiftly on, we come across a deliciously designed underwater park, complete with streetlights, and, in the basic version, NPCS that wander about. Honestly, whatever I say here would be a waste of breath, as it's just miles better to just inhale the visuals for yourself. Trust me, you shall be awe struck, methinks. Now we can finally attack the meat and potatoes of this compound. Moving down a corridor, we can stop by and see there's two...pits? Yes, Szico found it more entertaining to have the players leap down and be carried up in this particular area, instead of actual elevators. Not exactly the most PRACTICAL of ideas, but he at least designed the shaft to be quite entertaining to behold. Dropping down to a soft landing, we come upon a lobby with a malevolent TV screaming and hawking ::JEDI:: and the map. In my initial beta testing of this map, I attacked it in a childish rage, scorning its existance. Suffice to say, It breaks, and >_> can be fixed, although I will explain that later as well. Man, I have a lot of explaining to do -_-; So then, there's a nice lil protocol desk droid waiting for you, his function also being covered later. Heading left, we'll prod and poke the "west wing" of the compound. Walking along the scenic hallway, we arrive at the stairway nexus which leads to the deliciously scripted infirmary, VR stealth training room, and laser dodging training area. Definitely worth a personal investigation, as my words alone cannot recreate the experiences extracted from them. A long stairway across the infirmary leads down to meditation and prep rooms, one of the combat prep rooms housing Szico's pride and joy: Hexagonal Honeycomb windows. I must admit, these are thoroughly awesome, and as such, warrant a soul harvest. The annex here is definitely also worth a look at, as it was beautifully crafted, and features a nice fountain here, along with the vaulted glass ceiling, which is quite priceless. Alright, finally, we'll hit the East wing, which contains the archives, dormitories, and the council rooms. Archives contains something that will be explained later >_> NOW, the council is built like your average council room, save for the laser security and the RPG function that will ALSO be mentioned later. The dormitories are quite awesome, although the beds are ENORMOUS, even the bunk beds. Downsize much? Whew...seriously. and now,intermission.... [b]-=Averus goes to go eat=-[/b] Ahh, most delicious. Now that I can focus on the map rather than eating, it's time to hit some of the more technical aspects. First off, if it isn't obvious enough, this file/map is HUGE, and as such, may annihilate lower end PCs, so beware. Map loading time was like...well, longer than most maps, so I'd suggest finding something to amuse yourself within that time frame >_> Bugs: There's some. I'll just note them in list format. Granted, whilst we had MaceCrusherMadunsus in the server at the time pointing out bugs, truth be told I wasn't listening so XD here's what *I* found/recorded(whichever came first): - Elevator/Annex area: You can jump through the unclipped rock and step into the void. - Some doors may get stuck, depending on how you handle them. - You can see brushes and map objects in certain windows/ceiling windows depending on what area of the map you're in. - (one time deal, but still possible) The beam elevator's console brush disconnected from the pad. - A few hardly noticeable clipping issues with curves. - Certain sounds can be heard globally when they were meant to be local, an issue Szico cannot fix. - There is no mess hall, despite Szico's texture >_> - Doors can kill you >_> rather easily if you're not careful. - Doorway leading to lobby has a few clipping/textural issues(not too noticeable, really.) That's just a few. (I was told there was some z-fighting somewhere although I never personally spotted it.) So now I can finally attack the stuff I've been meaning to save for the final parts of this review, which has taken way too long because of distractions and general fun XD. There are two versions, as I'm sure I've mentioned before, or thought I did...who cares, DEATH TO ALL. [b]Atlantica - Basic[/b]: This is where RP can commence more smoothly, in my opinion. This area is void of most of the following features that will be covered in the RPG Version of the map, and features an expanded bound so you can fly ships within distance of the dome station. Now, to actually hit the cream. [b]Atlantica - RPG[/b]: This is the map where most of the fun is stored, for the most part. You must VENTURE FORTH and gain credits(respawning objects easily attainable in certain areas,) or complete certain missions to gain credits to buy your way up the clearance ladder! Missions include simple tasks like clearing out a hall way to completing VR training missions successfully. Also, whilst you're out and about, you can get the toolbox and boredly repair the broken TV and lamp posts in the park. Here, in a nut shell, is where clearance can be reached: Lvl 1: Freebie granted in the drop shafts. Lvl 2: 50 Credits, purchase at the desk droid Lvl 3: 300 Credits, Purchase in archives Lvl 4: 400 Credits, plus a 10 switch console hunt is in order to activate the console itself. Lvl 5: Admin Control Tower Also, a couple other functions require paying of credits, I.E. the infirmary bacta tank. The last other difference I recall between the RPG version and basic is that now the RPG version has an x-wing in the once empty pad, and the bridge to it can be destroyed. Okay, I've typed far enough

-[SithLords]-Pack

sithlordspack.zip | 14.69 MB

So now they\'re supposed to be sith lords or something like that. Okay, so you have a bunch of black and white and gray Jadens, what can be improved? Well first off you could make it so that they don\'t overwrite the default Jadens when you load it. How does one do this, you ask? Look at the file structure for the skin, and eventually you\'ll figure it out. But the big thing here, is to make it so that your base Jaden skins are not overwritten. Why? Because when they are, every part is overwritten. There are other parts to this mod, like being only able to use force jump and the saber attack and defense powers, but the main thing in this mod was the skins.

Darth Revan

darth_revan.zip | 10.04 MB

the Star Wars Expanded Universe; what happened to Darth Revan? It was revealed in KotOR 2 that he journeyed into unknown space in search of the \'true Sith\'. Ad up till now that was all we knew. Maybe more of that story would have been explored in KotOR 3, but that was scrapped shortly after pre production began. Hopefully now we will have some answers from the masterful story tellers at Bioware! Anyways, until then we have a Darth Revan model to sate your appetite! Made by Almighty_gir, this is an excellent piece of work. The modelling details on the belt with that large metal ring especially look good. Incidentally this is also the area that changes colour for the team skins. To be honest I probably would have simply recoloured all the red sections of the default skin for the team skins, but this way is nicely subtle. Though the blue belt ring does kinda clash with the red parts of the robes on the blue team skin. The one thing that I definitely think needs some improvement though is the cloak, since it looks very flat texture wise. Some more creases or folds in the fabric would improve it I think. Other than that a very good skin and model here, though some custom sounds would be nice. Yes I know, apart from the odd sentence the player says in KotOR like “ugh, I’ve been poisoned” Revan doesn’t have any voice overs, but I’m sure you could find some menacing sounding taunts somewhere that would pass for Darth Revan. ;) All in all though an excellent model and skin, I hope you decide to do more KotOR characters in future!

Backhand Lightsabers

bh_lightsabers.zip | 525.9 KB

picked wisely. :p And so, here is a nice little set of lightsabers from HOUOU. Anyone who played the console EPIII video game will instantly recognize this funky backhand fighting style. And this is basically all the mod does, the author made a rather simple (but neat looking) hilt to go with his backhand lightsaber, called sniper. There are three pk3s included, a regular version of his sniper hilt, a backhand version, and a backhand Katarn hilt. There are some major issues with multiplayer, as the game seems to crash when trying it out with all pk3s in your base folder (solo mode worked perfectly fine). The solution would be to pick one, and stick with it, or not use them in MP... After all, I doubt any server would simply allow exploits like that, but if you find one, enjoy. ~Metall Pingwin

KOTOR Stances

kotor_stances_2.0.zip | 12.01 MB

Republic. Well, first, I'll redirect you to [file="91004"]Nozy's original review of this file[/file], then... well, highlighting what's changed between the two versions is tricky, as the change log wasn't so specific. And then... well, I can't really round off with a summation of the changes, since the changelog didn't specify exactly what had been altered between versions and I can't spare half an hour right now in order to closely examine each and every animation compared to the previous release, sorry. Beat in mind that like all animation mods, you can only have one active at one time, and attempting to have more than one causes the others to simply not work. Richard would probably also throttle me if I didn't slap a big "DON'T TRY TO USE THIS WITH OJP!!!!" sticker across this review, because like any custom animation mod it will bugger up OJP's saber system, so the OJP community have been warned as well. ~ Kouen

Escape: Yavin IV - The Lost Maps

ey4.zip | 306.41 MB

conversion. Well, saying it\'s a sequel may not be completely accurate. It\'s really something of a replacement - a totally new story, twenty-five new levels, and plenty of new content to choose from. As it\'s very [i]very[/i] long, I tested the first level fully, and will leave the rest to you. However even just from the first level I can tell the quality is way up there. The puzzles are difficult, the levels, even on the easiest setting, are challenging, and the cutscenes are very good. The voice acting could have used a little work, mostly in just the sound quality area (a lot of the voice actors just seemed a smidge too close to their microphones), but the feeling of the characters comes across well enough. The author recommends you remove all custom PK3s from your base folder in order for this mod to work. The main reason behind this seems to be the incredibly high number of NPCs in the mod - if you have extra NPCs in your base folder your extensions will be too long and you won\'t be able to play, so keep that in mind. However the mod comes with enough customization on its own that you probably won\'t feel the need to have extra mods when you play it. I\'m not going to get too detailed on the features of this mod, but I will re-iterate a few things Darrow mentions in his read-me (which I strongly recommend you read). First of all, as I said, it has 25 brand new levels that were not included in the original EY4. Secondly, the interface of the game is new, including a \"chapters\" menu for easy level selection and a new saber menu (you can steal dropped sabers! yay!). It seems like after each level you can customize your sabers based on ones you acquired during the previous missions. So it\'s kind of like an \"unlocking\" system, from what I can gather. The TC also sports three, count \'em [b]three[/b], ending sequences, which is sure to keep you busy trying to get each one. So if you\'re one of those types who loves single-player but whines and moans about how bad the single-player campaign Raven included is, here\'s your chance to try something a little bit more involved. However be warned - you\'re not ridding yourself of Rosh Penin! ~Inyri

The Force Unleashed Animations SP

tfu_animation.zip | 11.73 MB

Unleashed is in a way the spiritual successor of the Jedi Knight series. Therefore I suppose it isn’t surprising that we get a steady stream of The Force Unleashed themed mods here at JKFiles. This latest mod gives JKA a TFU flavour by adding in TFU inspired animations for several things, including death, roll and lightsaber animations (though there only appears to be one lightsaber style from what I could see). It also adds a TFU style HUD in the top left of the screen as well as new menu and map loading images. Not only that but there seems to be a few new sounds and even new saber clash effects (which look much better than the Base JKA ones I think). The lightsaber style animations look pretty good, and I like the addition of the new splash images, menu and loading screens along with the HUD. There are a couple of things that could do with improving though, one being the new splash, menu and loading screens, which look quite pixelated, I would definitely suggest trying to find some higher resolution images for these. The other thing is the roll animation, which is now a kind of force dash; the characters pose looks a little awkward and the length of the dash is not very far, if possible I think it should be lengthened a little and the characters pose worked on some more, but that’s just my opinion! Overall however, a nice compact mod with several TFU inspired animations and other features that I think is worth a download for fans of The Force Unleashed series! Give it a download if you like the look of it! ;) ~Nozyspy~

ForceMod III - Return of the Sith (Win Installer)

forcemod_iii_v1.0_win32_install.zip | 39 MB

Academy. ForceMod III - Return of the Sith gives you the option of nearly 30 different classes. I can\'t even list all of the classes here, there are just too many. But as an example, as a Jedi Warden, you get a limited number of force powers, a lower saber attack level, but you get a Bryar. As an Aurorian, you get all light side force powers (up to level 4!) and level 4 attack and defense at max, but no other weapons other than your sabers. There are many other variations on these limitations which really seem to balance the mod/game. There are several new stances added - some specifically for single, dual or staff sabers. Some of the sabers are destructable as well. There are many new special moves added and a ton of other stuff including, but not limited to, cloaking, flame gauntlet, optic radar and a jetpack. There\'s just so much here, I really can\'t cover it all. Download this mod and check it out. I wouldn\'t be surprised if this starts popping up on a bunch of servers. :D ~AmosMagee

Darth Revan From KotoR

darth_revan.zip | 803 KB

skin, I have no idea if it looks just like Darth Revan or not. I couldn\'t, for the life of me, find a picture of him anywhere! So I\'m just gonna take the author\'s word for it, and believe that this is exactly what Darth Revan looks like. The skin has a very muted look to it. Maybe that was intentional. I like it. The red and blue skins for team support are just what you\'d expect. Nothing fancy here, just red and blue, respectively. There are no new sounds, just the plain Raven ones. The author mentions that it makes sense because you never hear Darth Revan speak. Well, wouldn\'t it make more sense to include a couple of silent sounds? An update to include those sounds and bot support would be nice, I suppose, for those who really like this skin. :) Bot Support: No Team Colors: Yes New Sounds: No ~AmosMagee

Ultimate Jedi Academy v3

ultimate_jedi_academy_v3.zip | 94.06 MB

are a fan of hollywood_g1\'s previous work we have a treat for you today! The Ultimate Jedi Academy Mod is a huge pack of skins containing several of hollywood_g1\'s previous packs like his Ultimate Expanded Universe, amazing Reborn Reskins and such. If you are a fan of his previous work, you now have pretty much all of his best skins all in once place! I have seen quite a few of the authors skins and how he has improved his skills over time, and I have to say there are some really fantastic skins in this pack. The Alora reskins in particular I think are outstanding, the [url=http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Darth_Talon]Darth Talon[/url]-esque tattoos really give Alora a whole new and more fearsome look. Apart from full skins there are a vast amount of body parts to use via the customisation menu, including heads, torsos and legs of various kinds. My favourites out of the customisation options are the armoured Jedi options, seriously, if you are going to duel someone with a glowy stick than can cut you in half, doesn’t it make sense to wear some armour?! Of course, you could always use the Armoured Reborn too! ;) Multiple other skins have also been given new shaders; Shadowtroopers now have shiny armour and the Artusian crystal on their chest glows on and off as if it is beating like a heart. The skin texture on the Transoshan model has also been made to look rougher and more scaly, though the eyes also look like that have a texture, which seems a little weird. And in the case of Boba Fett, he has been given a complete makeover with new shaders and some nice higher resolution textures. If Boba isn’t to your liking, then there are other Mandalorian themed skins to choose from too. Apart from the skins there is also a new splash screen for when the game is loading, the ability to choose a red lightsaber blade in singleplayer and some new menu music as well. But it doesn’t end there! There are also a couple of new lightsaber hilts included courtesy of HOUOU such as his Rahm Kota and Galen Marek hilts. As far as guns go there have been some colour adjustments to make them look a little more movie accurate, though for full movie accuracy the bowcaster should really shoot red bolts, rather than green. It would take forever to cover all the skins and features on this mod, and though there is a brief list in the readme this is something that you really need to download to discover all the the cool stuff that is in here. Of course a mod of this size os not without a few bugs. Two of the team variations of the Rockettrooper skin throw up an error along the lines of \'you are trying to load an unsupported model\' and then something to do with \'missing bones\', which sounds quite disturbing and brings to mind an image of a jelly like person flopping around. Still, other Rockettrooper skins included in this mod do work, so I am sure it can be fixed. Also, I noticed that the last set of \'Jaden legs\' appear as invisible on the model once selected and makes Jaden look like he has had a terrible accident. Apart from these bugs, some improvements I would suggest for any future versions of this pack are things like adding some customisation options for the female characters, perhaps making some parts similar to the Tavion and Alora skins for people to use for a customised female skin. I also think the Jaden heads could do with some more variety, perhaps with some more different kinds of facial hair, or even lopping Kyles head off and allowing us to mash up Kyle\'s epic beard with the Jaden bodies. All in all though this is a really superb mod that is a lot of fun to use, especially if you prefer customising your characters. Keep up the excellent work hollywood_g1, I would love to see more of these packs in the future! :) ~Nozyspy~[/quote] So what do we have new this time around? Well the broken Rocket Trooper skin that I mentioned in my previous review has now been fixed, so you now have more variation to choose from. On the texture side of things, the \'gloved hand\' look has been replaced with a fleshed hand look (although it would also be cool if there were gloved hand options as well, as gloves can look cool), and the Thermal Detonator has been given a rub with a polishing cloth to make it more shiny and has had some new blinking lights added. There are also a couple of new \'chromed\' textures made and added to all the metal textures in the game to give a more Force Unleashed kind of look, although it would be cool if this was an optional .pk3 that you could install as not everyone might prefer the new look. Also, all the current weapons have also been given this new \'chrome effect\' shader to polish them up too. Lastly in addition to the base JKA hilts the author has also added Luke Skywalker\'s hilt to the selection menu for even more variety! All in all a nice little update to a cool mod here, I look forward to seeing what you have in store for us in the future hollywood_g1! :) ~Nozyspy~

assume it would get a little old, especially when a mob of angry saber-weilding mercenaries killed you. I don't imagine having a bunch of tuskens running at you with lightsabers would be much fun either. However for those of you who are 100% anti-guns, this may prove a neat little mod to have. Apparently this also changes Tavion in the final battle to... well... something else. I know what it is, but I won't ruin it for you. Just be aware it's probably not as exciting as you might expect. Just be aware this pack has a lot of .npc files in it, so if you already have a bunch of NPCs in your base folder you may not be able to use this mod. ~Inyri

Terminative 3 Home

t3home22009.zip | 21.72 MB

JKFiles record that has been broken today! ;) It’s good though that the author chose to show as much of the map as possible, because this is a pretty incredible map! This is basically one huge training map, designed to hone your skills ingame. Though this was obviously designed for the Term!native 3 community, this is definitely a map that I would recommend to any clan or gaming community. The logos and references to the Term!native 3 community are pretty unintrusive and I think the training features in this map would be a fantastic asset for any clan. So, what kind of facilities does this map have? Well, one of my favourite features was the huge static training room, which features one of those rotating ‘jump & duck’ bars (though be careful not to get hit by it or you will be killed!) and various targets raging in size to test your aiming skills. It also has an area with two concentric circles, a small one inside of a larger one, with a button that spawns a Kyle in the center. The idea I think is that you have to use your saber skills to kill the Kyle bot without leaving the circles thus honing your close quarters combat skills. This is just one room though, which is accessed off a corridor, which is in turn accessed off the central hub, which leads to all the different areas. Other features include a duel room, two bot training rooms and a jump training area where you can spawn Kyle bot’s which fly around the room in various ways, helping you to practice your jumping attacks. There is an area that has three corridors filled with that I presume to be water. In these corridors are platforms spaced at regular intervals, with the spacing getting wider in the next corridor along. This area is I presume a place to practice your jumping techniques and accuracy. If you fall short of the platforms however and land in the water, you will be teleported back to the beginning! Yet another room is the interestingly named ‘Mysterious Pit’ room. Basically this features a big pit that opens up in the floor and, via the use of multiple buttons on the wall, you can customise with platforms and walkways that extend out into the pit to create a tailor-made duelling area! There is also kind of secret ‘council room’ type area. This last area has a very nifty method for accessing it… it has a combination lock! Outside of the doors to the ‘restricted area’ is a giant combination lock where you have to change the numbers to the correct code to open the doors. This I think, is a fantastic idea. It looks good and is a very nifty little feature that helps set this maps ‘council room’ apart from those of other clan themed maps. One other small, but clever idea are the little signs on the floor in various places instructing you not to stand there. Why? Well, because they are teleporter pads! When you use a teleporter (of which there are quite a few in the map) you will land on one of these pads, obviously you don’t want someone else to be stood there when you teleport in, otherwise you will crush them, sending them to an untimely demise. These notices are a clever little feature which should prevent people from being killed unnecessarily whilst on this map! (Health and Safety for the win!…) There are quite a few other features here as well, but it would take too long to mention them all, besides I want to leave something for you guys to discover for yourselves! ;) As for improvements, well to be honest there isn’t much I can think of that could be improved here. I would suggest though, if there is ever another version made of this map, that you add some more duel rooms, because one really isn’t enough to be honest. Other than that, I did notice a few missing textures, but these were few and far between and weren’t that noticeable anyway. Overall then an excellent map here, one that I wish had been around when I was in a clan; we could have used this kind of map for clan rank trials and such! If you are a clan leader looking for a new map or just like the look of this map, then be sure to give it a download!

The Academy

the_academy_v3.zip | 24.36 MB

map. If there were ever such a thing as evolution, this would define it. Players of The Academy v2 won\'t recognise much except the core fundamentals. Everything has changed, yet at the same time so much remains the same. Firstly, I\'ll start with the main chamber. I had to use noclip to access this, as it\'s initially locked, hence the screenshots not being taken in spectator mode. This room fits the theme of a council chamber perfectly, in every sense. As well as having the Jedi theme, it also has some unexplainable academic edge to it, some element I can\'t quite isolate. Needless to say, the architecture is great, and is quite possibly the best I\'ve seen in a Yavin Temple map for ages - it\'s simple, yet at the same time visually pleasing. Not one mis-aligned texture to be found - this is the point where I realised exactly why this map had taken so long: Virtue\'s gone over it with a fine-toothed comb, and then gone over it again with an even finer one. There\'s really not much to say about this as the screenshots will say enough, except that the view over the courtyard looks good and gives it that \"campus\" feel. Leading off from the main chamber are the security rooms and a sparring room. The sparring room is essentially the same design principle as the equivalent room in v2, except that much more attention to detail has been given to it. Again, it\'s what you\'d expect. The security room is simple - it just has buttons to lock down parts of the academy. Typical Rebel base design, yet still very well constructed too look the part almost impeccably. Next is the battleground. Believe me when I say that you won\'t recognise it. It has been translated from a walled-in enclosure into a large outdoor area. The terrain looks as good as it can in Q3 engine, there\'s good use of lighting and effects, and the area is littered with weapons - leading me to believe that the majority of combat and lessons takes place out here. Across the battleground you\'ll find a small ruin with an elevator. This leads into what appears to be the dorm area. Several rooms are down here: medical room, bar, strategy center, and a few storage rooms. Everything is, again, well-designed and error-free. What impressed me most was the strategy center\'s layout - it hits the spot exactly, and I suspect that a little inspiration was likely taken from real world sources. My only grievance is that the music in the bar is still present, and there\'s no way short of deleting the mp3 to make it shut up (you can tell that I dislike that song, huh?) - which is a shame, as it clashes with the great BGM. Interestingly enough, this underground dormitory area is also a training zone, although I suspected it may be since only RP\'ers would really have much use for many of the areas (except the bar - that can universally be used as a \"Safe Zone\" in any type of server). Now... Ah, wait, screw it, I\'m too lazy to keep switching between spec and ingame modes. Ahem, now let\'s move on to the central courtyard, possibly my fave area. This is almost the same as v2, which is good, because it\'s a little bit of the original in there, but what makes it stand out is the adjoining \"Hall of Fame\" area. As well as being possibly the most aesthetically-pleasing part of the map, it contains memorials which count as a way of honoring the people who made the Academy what it is - quite sentimental, and hell, those guys deserve an honorable mention for giving up most of their free time for the benefit of a gaming community which on the whole generally doesn\'t appreciate the sacrifices that have been made for them by many. Most important of all is the memorial to Vladarion - I\'m glad that\'s still in there. An in-game memorial to an in-game friend. Nerdy? Hell yes, but really, who cares? Honoring someone you knew well and cared for is the right thing to do, and a friend is still a friend whether you know them as a human or as an avatar. Again, another display that we\'re all still humans behind the keyboards, and that can only be a good thing. OK, this review is getting long. Too long. Let\'s move on before Inyri starts making wisecracks about Oscar acceptance speeches or some such nonsense... >_> The classrooms are the core of the map, naturally. The three sparring rooms are still intact and very much unchanged aside from the removal of the viewing areas. What is really new now, is the stairways leading to elevators. These lead up to the second floor, where there\'s a brand spankin\' new classroom built for all kinds of classes. It\'s got seating (which, in non-RP terms, means \"Go stand over there so you don\'t get in the way!\" :p ), and the glass walkways make it easier to see what\'s going on around the room. Jutting off from here is a supply room for healing, and a sentry room for defensive training (which I have to admit, I took a few lessons in myself while playtesting >_> ). All in all, everything a Jedi will need to train themselves, I guess. The final room to cover, is the bridge room. I loved this one, and now with the addition of multiple levels, I love it even more. Why? I dunno, I guess I like combat in these environments. Must still be jacked in to the Matrix or something. (By the way, Ghost is WAY cooler than Neo. And Enter The Matrix should have been much longer than it was.) Er, yeah, this room is still fun for combat, and if you like, you can even simulate Revolver Ocelot-style pistol matches a lá Metal Gear Solid. ;) All in all, a fun little sparring room. Now, because I\'ve made this review extremely wordy and unnecessarily long, I\'ll summarise: - Texture Usage: All textures appropriately used and well-fitted. No errors. - Architecture: A bit plain, very simple, yet still aesthetically pleasing and appropriate. - Design: Simple, yet elegant. Made for a purpose and suits it perfectly. The theme ties in very well together. - Creativity: It\'s an updated remake. The heck are you asking me about creativity for? :p - Custom Material: Surprisingly, most of this is built with base resources. Congrats on utilising them better than Raven Software could! The few custom resources in the pack are just fine. Some of them could work better, but they\'re fine for their purpose. I admit it, I\'m gushing with nothing but praise for this. Why? Because it\'s the best map ever? No, I don\'t make judgements like that. Because it looks more awesome than any other map? Nope. So why is it then? Because it [i]works[/i]. It\'s been properly tested, properly tweaked, properly optimised, so on and so forth, and Virtue\'s delayed the release of it almost indefinitely in order to make sure it was only released when it was [i]ready[/i] - something that no mapper seems to do these days. Overall, this is an improvement in every way over v2, and the Academy members should be proud to call this their \"home away from home\". Virtue should also be proud for creating something which raises the standard and finally proves that complexity is [i]not[/i] synonymous with quality. Great work, Virtue, and I hope you expand your mapping horizons. I also hope that others follow from your example of thinking purely about the map rather than about the reaction it will get from the general public. ~ Kouen [b]Bot Routing:[/b] Yes [b]Custom Textures:[/b] Yes [b]Custom Music:[/b] Yes [b]Custom Models:[/b] Yes

Ahsoka Tano

v2ahsokatano.zip | 14.29 MB

have here today is Ahsoka Tano, otherwise known to the Jedi Council as 'Snips', the Anakin with a better personality. What I see here is good. Textures are flawless on some aspects, but a bit bland. That is to say, it's accurate, but it just seems strange in the middle of battle. The only real problem I have with this model is not its textures or it's weighting. The bot support is good, and so is the alternative skins. My problem is that Ahsoka seems to have put on quite a bit of weight. I'm not entirely sure on that, so please remedy this situation with a sledgehammer to my jawbone. Regardless of this situation, however, the model is good. I would say for you to submit your bandwidth immediately. And I am. Do it to it.

The New Revan Dark Weapons

new_revandark_weapons.zip | 13.27 MB

magnificent weapon. Of course I'm not saying the skins on these weapons are bad, I'm just saying they're simple, and that works. The beauty of these places - and hilts - comes from their shaders. With a simply shaded skin, a custom chrome shader goes a long way. That's right. It's not the ordinary Raven chrome shader. Well, actually the shader [i]is[/i] the same, but the environment maps are custom-made to fit the style of the blades better. This produces an excellent chrome effect on the blades and hilts. This pack actually contains something I, until this very moment, thought was not possible to do in JA - a genuine glow. I'm definitely keeping this in my base folder, more to learn as a modeller than to use. Folks, this pack is very well done, both visually and technically. My hat's off to you, Revan. You are a god among mortals. Oh, in case you guys don't feel like reading the read-me (shame on you!) there are twenty-one weapons in this pack, including 4 lightsabers, 11 swords, 4 staves, 1 hammer (geez is it ever big), and one gun (a DEMP replacement). Read the read-me for more information on special weapons included in this pack. ~Inyri

The map is basicly made out of a few buildings that function as different bases,it is a big grasslandscape with trees and rocks, not much has changed since the last version, except that there is an inside area added under one of the buildings and the Trade Federation Droid Lander has been improved. also the CTF spawn points are fixed and a few other little adjustments have been made.

Wars map. The skybox outside is lovely (though could be improved upon and probably will be for version 2), there's rain and fog and mist, the lighting is beautiful, and that's just like, from where I spawned. Now, keep in mind, this is a HUGE map. It took almost a full minute for the map to load for me. So don't freak out and think the game has frozen or anything. Just be patient. :) There are some windows looking out into the sea and the water is just drenching the glass ... it looks great. The hallways are bright and sterile looking. Lots of great details can be found in small rooms here and there. There are some great doors and ... goodness, there's just so much here. That one room with the white spoon chairs - totally freaked me out. LOL This really is an incredible map, James. And I know a lot of you have been looking forward to this map's release. :) There are a few errors I found here and there. The elevator/lift doesn't work as well as it could, there's some z-fighting in two areas that I found (can you spot it? ;)) but there is a version 2 coming. This is definitely a map for RPing. And if you aren't into that, then like, try a game of Hide 'n Seek on this map. It's big enough. :P Bot Support: Yes New Textures: Yes New Music: Yes Game Types: FFA ~AmosMagee

All in one saber sounds

all_in_one_saber_sounds.zip | 2.73 MB

saber sound mods that I\'ve liked much for that reason. But some people feel that saber sounds like the ones featured in this mod are more \"realistic\" and therefore prefer these sounds. Kudos to Aryyn for giving us some choice in our saber sounds. You have some updated \"normal\" saber sounds to choose from, or go with the more scratchy Sith sound, and if that doesn\'t float your boat, there\'s always the Luke and Yoda saber sounds that have a more \"powerful\" swooshing sound. If you\'re interested in some new saber sounds for Jedi Academy, this is a good place to start. ~AmosMagee

Katanamaru Backhand Styles

katanamaru_backhand_styles_mod.zip | 13.08 MB

sabers. -------- To start off, I\'d like to point out something that wasn\'t made entirely clear in the readme: [b]This mod is meant for Single-Player[/b] Now, the actual animations aren\'t that bad, but there\'s clear and definite room for improvement. To start, I found the slashes to be veeery slow compared to their normal counterparts. Not only that, but attempting to use any of the single-saber stances result in not being able to move at all. Also, the block/deflect animations still act as if you were wielding normal sabers. On the plus side, what the author did to the left/right lean animations was pretty clever. But then there\'s the cinematics. Well, to put it simply: [b]Just skip them.[/b] Why? Because Jaden Galen simply stands there, no animation at all. Probably has something to do with how the backhand stance is achieved. But aside from that, this stance pretty much works. Only a hand-full of problems to deal with. You\'ll know if you want if, you backhanded addicts. :P ...Why are you still reading this? Seriously, you\'re creeping me out... -.o ~Crazy ...Ok, seriously, stop reading already!! I\'m warning you...

The Force Unleashed 2 Starkiller Pack

starkiller_tfu2.zip | 10.25 MB

that any work that he sends in is simply spectacular. 5 regular, 2 team skins, and all of them up to DarthPhae's usual standard of work, which is in itself, quite impressive. I still use his DF2 Yun to this day, just because of how excellent it is. He really can turn the jedi_HM model into something potent. So, speaking of, this is yet another Jedi_HM reskin pack, and as I said before, a very potent one. Wielding his mighty digital artistic tools, DP has turned Jaden into Galen Merak in his own unique manner, sketching up 4 of the outfits that you apparently see him in the upcoming TFU2. These are, from what I'm guessing: A kamino clone outfit, a utilitarian suit, a ripped jacketed suit, and a jedi-ish robe of sorts. But wait, what's the 5th? Apparently, a mutated/incomplete clone will be featured as an enemy in TFU2, and has been skinned into such. It looks quite malevolent, and thankfully, he doesn't have red eyes! WOOOT. So, anything wrong with these skins? Not really, there's no graphical oddities with DP's work. I guess my only QQ would be the obnoxious cinematic lines that were included as taunts. However, that's just personal opinion, and should in no way impact your judgement on these skins. DP whipped up a set of modified Jaden Male sounds to help compliment the rest of his Merak clips, which go along rather peacibly. I'd say we've got a complete package here. With all this in mind, I'd say this pack is the answer to any rabid desire to be Starkiller that anyone may have. I'm tempted to keep this pack in in anticipation of all the fanboys who will inevitably come to my server ;_; with this pack in. It's going to be a looong week.

Backhand Normal Stance HQ

backhand_saber_stance_hq.zip | 8.31 MB

Though there isn't really much room for variation on the simple back-handed stance, there are a few cool features that set this mod out from the crowd. First of all, the stance is a pretty dramatic pose, a bit more animated looking than the previous ones I have seen. But the really cool part is that you stand there, you can see your characters head and shoulders bob up and down slightly making it look like they are panting heavily, perhaps after battling some Sith Lord. ;) This is a really nice little feature I think, as it makes your player character look much more alive and dynamic. All in all a cool mod here, though it only works with the single saber of course. Personally I would like to see a version which also adjusts the dual and staff saber stances, adding that 'panting' movement effect in there too. If you like the look of this mod, then be sure to give it a download, especially if you are looking for a stance mod to compliment your other Force Unleashed mod's! ~Nozyspy~

JA Unlimited

ja_unlimited_1.1.zip | 1.09 MB

no visible limits on how many sabers you could actually have, but I guess I may have been wrong or I simply never had that many sabers. Even if you were under the limits, though, only twenty or so appeared on the list and the console was necessary for the others. With JA Unlimited, virtually all sabers will appear on the menu (obviously it's not really unlimited, but it may as well be) and there ceiling limit on how many you can have has been turned into the roof limit - 'tis much higher. Higher than I was able to reach with every lightsaber, sword, baseball bat, axe, halberd, polearm, voulge and God-only-knows-what-else I could procure from JKFiles. Since saber switching via /saber only appears to work in JA+, this is great for anyone not using these mods, since you no longer need to know the .sab designations to load your sabers. - Maps Again, you can usually have as many maps as you'll need, but now they'll all show on the menu so that you don't need to open pk3s in Pakscape/PakRat (shout-out for you Maccies out there ;) ), find the bsp name and use /devmap to load your maps. Great improvement in my book, helpful for those who don't check map pk3s by default, or don't know how to. - NPCs Now, this one you did have a limit on, and that limit is basically kaput. You can now have as many NPCs as you'll need - again, I'm figuring 65535 being the ceiling limit, but you'll probably never reach that many - without that pesky ".npc extensions are too large!" error in multiplayer. Score one for no annoyances! - Vehicles Oh yeah. Now we're talkin'. If you're like me and enjoy going to town with some serious vehicular manslaughter, again, this is the mod for you. No more .veh extensions errors, and the error with .vwp files (which were still at factory limits in the last release) is now fixed, so you can have as much firepower as you need in the base folder. - Models / Skins Considering the game can hold as many models/skins as you can use, I always found it kinda dopey that there was a limit on the amount of icons, but that limit is now gone. - Species Selections The limit was previously 32. Now, it's... what is it again? 65535 or something like that? Ain't that quite a resume? [b]Disclaimers[/b] ► This will [b]not[/b] work in the singleplayer game - source code for the SP DLLs was never released. Strictly MP only, sorry folks. ► Naturally, SP won't work at all if you're over any limits, so basically, my advice: don't put mods in base, make a seperate mod folder for this and dump your files in there, then launch this mod via .bat file. That way you can have as much as you need in MP, without shafting SP. ► Limits are there for reasons, as Kat Angel quite rightly states in the readme. Even though this mod means the game won't object to extreme amounts of mods, please try and factor in how much the iD Tech 3 engine can handle, and how much your computer can handle. If you have too much in your base folder, your game will take ages to load. The more you have, the slower it gets. The less RAM your computer has, the slower load times pass. The slower your CPU, the slower load times will be. You also risk your computer randomly shutting down, restarting, or random crashes by having more than the computer can handle. So, basically, if you never use it, don't keep it, 'cuz the more you got the more strain your system takes. Right, safety warnings and summaries out of the way, I think we're done here. Overall, great mod for you "pakrats" (no pun intended). If you play baseJA and like to use a lot of add-ons, this is a sure-fire winner. ClanMod version and OJP Basic / OJP Enhanced versions in the queue, uploadin' em as we speak (type? speak?). No JAE yet, sadly, so there's Kat Angel's next homework assignment. :p Now, if you don't mind, I'm going to go equip my game with every fighter, bomber, assault walker and tank I can get my hands on. World War III ain't gonna fight itself! :o Erm. Well. Nuts. I need a catchphrase. ~ Kouen

Final Fantasy VII - Midgar

final_fantasy_vii_midgar_v3.0.zip | 4.35 MB

with it out of the way. First off, it took forever to load. The load time is right up there with some of the load times for HL2, and those take forever. Another problem was that I didnt have the best framerate out there while on this map. However, that could be easily fixed if I lowered the graphics settings a bit instead of running em on the highest settings. There are many new models included, such as brand new chocobos, the motorcycles from Advent Children, the Turks, Tifa, and Yuffie. While the models were well done, I thought that the skinning on them could have been a bit better, especially on Rufus. There is also two additional pk3s, one being the One Wing Jetpack, which contains a new jetpack and teleport effects, and one being the First Sword pack, which includes Cloud's swords from Advent Children and a holster for all you JA+ users. Now onto the map itself. It is a very well made map, if you ask me. It has everything that I would like in a map, and more. The first place I visited was where I spawned, in the Highwind. Well made map, and true to the ship from the game, with the exception of the stairs that took you outside in the game took you to a teleporter room here. While wanering around the ship, I ran into Yuffie. Being the person I am, I shot her, and proceeded to get attacked by her... :/ Anyway, I took care of her and ran up to the teleporter room. I was given four choices: Chocobo Farm, Battle Square, Shinra HQ, and Sector 7. I decided to hit Battle Square first. Once there, I noticed that the text on the floor in the circle had been changed to fit what was said in FF7. I hopped up, and pressed the button to spawn the bots. I do a series of battles with various characters, including some Turks, and Sephiroth at the end. Once I amused myself by throwing them all into the deadly surrounding liquid, I took off back to the teleport room on the Highwind. This time I take a turn to Sector 7. I hop down, look around, and head to where anyone would head: 7th Heaven Bar. Who should I find there, but Tifa herself? Once I check out the bar, I head up to the pillar that was blown up in FF7 to bring down the plate. Nothing particularly amazing here, besides how close to the original game it is. Wandering around more, going through the Train Graveyard and sewers, I eventually wind up at Shinra HQ. While it only has the top levels, it is still a great place. At the top is the presidental room, where I found Rufus, and at the bottom is a garage filled with motorcycles from Advent Children, along with a passage leading out to the highway in Midgar. After getting lost many times, not to mention crashed into and killed by passing vehicles, I wound up in the Chocobo Farm, where I found the brand new chocobos, which I immediately fell in love with. I also found the Zolom that Sephiroth killed by a cave that leads to where a golden chocobo is locked into. I'll leave it up to you players to figure out how to unlock it. :p Somewhere along the way I found myself in Aerith's church. I was half expecting myself to find Aerith in there, but only slightly disappointed by her absence. Well, I think that covers the main areas in the map. Each of the areas were done to near perfection, all of which are as true to FF7 as you can get while still having a playable map. Now then, go download this map. Even if you do not like FF7, I would still suggest giving this map a download, because it is so well made. Enjoy!

Star Wars Episode III JKA Map Pack - Part 1

sjc_eiii_mappack_part1.zip | 54.04 MB

reading this review, downloading this map pack, then you saw Episode III. If not, don\'t read my review - there may be a spoiler or two. Okay, so I spawned in that one big room near the elevators. I immediately crawled down the broken one and explored the shaft. I don\'t think you can tell from the screenshots there, but there seemed to be water I was walking in here and there. Oh, and these screenshots are a bit out of order. See R2 down there in the water? I didn\'t mean for him to fall down there... I just love breaking grates. :D And that damn droid kept saying something every once in a while. Startled me every time and I expected them to spawn and start shooting at me and R2. Of course, R2 would\'ve kicked their asses. As you can see from the last screenshot there, I wouldn\'t have been much help to R2 since I decided to go and press buttons and got launched out into space. My FPS was decent on The Invisible Hand and I wouldn\'t be surprised if this map becomes as popular as the Duel of the Fates map - especially with that space-sucker-outer button. ;) And now Palpatine\'s Office - no, wait, that\'s a screenshot of Sith-J-Cull\'s office - or is it George Lucas\'? Bah. Maybe George and James share an office? ;) Well, I have no idea how to legitimately get to this room, I cheated and noclipped. :P But definitely check it out, it\'s amusing. :) The design and lighting of this map are great and accurate, though my poor screenshots don\'t justify the map. I\'m not quite sure why the chairs in the office can be pushed and pulled, but they can be. And the glass OF COURSE can be broken - how else could you reenact the scene where Windu gets - okay, I\'ll stop there. :) After testing these two maps, I\'m tempted to go back and find your first map ever submitted, James ... just so I can see if there was ever any improvement to be made. It seems to me you\'ve always been a great mapper and always will be. By the way, there are two screenshots of James\' upcoming work included in the zip file.

Base Customization

basecustom.zip | 1020.6 KB

other BaseJKA models, such as Luke and Kyle. -------- Wow, for real? Ravensoft could have used a style like this. Seriously, I'm surprised they didn't. Not only would it be relatively easy to do, it would allow for so much customization. This mod does a good job. All sorts of customization, no default kyle when someone doesn't have it. If I have one gripe, it's the fact that some parts are missing (such as Kyle's shoulder pad) due to them not existing on the jedi or reborn. But I understand that the author can't do much about that, so I'll forgive him. There's not much else I can say about this mod, so I'll end the review on this note: It's worth it. New Models: No New Textures: No New Icons: Yes New Shaders: No New Sounds: No Bot Support: Default NPC Support: Default [b]-------- This ends my review. If you are interested in reading a short commentary on player models, read on. Otherwise, proceed to the download button. --------[/b] It saddens me that player models in BaseJKA had to be so basic. Even the SP customization setup is basic, as you can only adjust 3 areas (Being the head, torso, and legs), and even then, there's only a hand full of options. Something I'd like to see in a coding mod would be increased customization. Specifically, more options in the SP-style setup. For instance, rather than the current 3, have options like hair, face, torso, legs, extras (such as a blaster holster), robe, arms, and sounds. On top of that, more of each would go a long way. Think of games like WoW, SWG, Oblivion, Morrowind, and Fallout 3. They all share a few common traits, but the one I want to focus on is the player. In each game, player customization is high, even reaching near-through-the-roof levels. That's one big problem with a game like this: Unless you are using some special player model/skin, there's an easy 4 dozen clones of you walking around. It gets old after a while. On a side note, all of this can also apply to sabers. Because let's face it: There aren't enough of them. Ok, that's all I have to say. Again, this mod is worth the download. ~Crazy

Taris RP

taris_rp.zip | 56.5 MB

maps". It's a nice coincidence that this Taris RP map is being released while the Taris mapping contest is going on. Some of you probably remember Cydon (Ki_Adi_Mundi) for his Yalara roleplaying map which was a very nicely made map for roleplaying but was really lacking in the visuals, something that really turned some people off the map. He returns now after having "set out to do better, even if only slightly" with a map based on Taris, and I've got to say that he succeeded. [b]Accuracy:[/b] I want to start off by first of all saying that this isn't a map that was built to replicate the KotOR version of Taris. Everyone who's played Knights of the Old Republic knows that Taris got the $*#@ blown out of it by Malak's sith fleet, and so seeing as this is set over 4,000 years after that we can guess that the city was rebuilt and obviously the passage of time has changed some things as well. With that said, there's no mistaking that this is definitely Taris. Everything from the architecture to the sky, lighting, and of course the KotOR music just screams 'TARIS!' I was confused how the author calls Taris' lower levels the 'Undercity' when the undercity was ACTUALLY that dark and scary place on the floor of the planet that housed horrible monsters like Rakghouls and Igear. [b]Content:[/b] To say this map is a [i]large[/i] map for roleplaying is an understatement - this map is massive. You start off near one of two ships, either on the upper levels by a Republic dropship or in a lower-level hangar outside a familiar Nabooan ship which, by the way, is enterable and features all you'd expect from a ship including a briefing room, crew bunks, bridge, refrigerator, and more (I couldn't find a bathroom though... WHY DOESN'T ANYONE IN STAR WARS EVER HAVE TO GO TO THE BATHROOM?!) If you start in the upper level then you can go down one of those suspended walkways that Taris is so famous for and visit a number of locations. You've got a nice upper brow cantina; a government building complete with senate room and military base (Which in and of itself has a ton of content, including a shooting range, armory, and prison); and various other rooms for different government or military purposes (Who knows half of what those crazy feds do?) There's also a Jedi Temple with some really cool things like a display of floating rocks in the center of the entrance area, a nice library, a council room, and basically everything you'd expect from your average Jedi Temple. Also on the upper level is a door that leads to a nice lift-area that takes you to the lower levels, specifically a starport area (The area that houses the other spawnpoint at the Naboo shuttle). This then leads out to a dark and grimy lower area with a bunch of doors as you walk down. The doors lead to a bank (Which I thought was kind of odd to have on the lower level rather than the upper level); a cantina akin to the one in KotOR complete with crime lord throne, singing lounge, and combat arena, however the arena isn't even close to the complexity of the KotOR arena which was like an actual gladiator pit - this one is just a small sand box in the floor. Then you, of course, have the sewers which KotOR made so famous. In short, there's a lot to do on this map. [b]Visuals[/b] Yalara had potential to look great but the lack of appropriate lighting, some weird terrain bugs and too simple architecture, and a really bad choice of textures in some areas just destroyed that potential. The author took just about all they they did wrong in the last map and did it [i]right[/i] in this one - probably for the better because Taris is cooler than Yalara anyway. The very first thing I can say is that this looks like Taris. The architecture fits and the lighting is great in almost every area, from the Taris sky to the grimy lower level. There are a few places that look worse than the others due to what I guess would just be low-quality architecture and/or textures, such as in the senate room which looks too blocky. There are other areas, however, where the quality of the map really shines, such as in the main chamber in the Jedi temple or the entire outside plaza of the upper levels. Something that caught my eye was how the author makes use of a lot of sprites to make it look like air traffic is busy all over Taris, and it works really, really well on the upper levels as you look at the criss-crossing lanes of traffic in the sky. Unfortunately when this is attempted in the lower levels outside a window, the effect doesn't look nearly as good; just looks like 2D toy ships flying 3 feet away. The lighting is very well done, more more so than in the Yalara map and makes a wide use of shadows and actual light sources rather than just blanket lighting. It makes the map look so nice. [b]Conclusion[/b] All in all this is a very nice map and definitely an improvement in quality over Cydon's last project. ~Laam'inui

Zeus Academy Ladder

sp_zaladder1.zip | 2.14 MB

simply walk to the top. When I did go down to fight, the enemies were easy to defeat, and they just kept respawning. Maybe it\'s good practice? The \"objective\" of this map is to get to the top of the map, after fighting your way through enemies. Again, this is basically useless because I was never able to \"pass\" the mission. The map itself is somewhat well designed. It is well lit, and has various different methods of getting to the top, like stairwells, statues, etc. The idea of this map/mod is good, though it defeats itself. If there were some way to make the mission end when you reach the top, then it would be worth it. Also, it should be a much longer road to the top, and your character should spawn at the very bottom, not close to the top. This might be a good download if you are just looking to kill some time... well, killing! ~Lord Griever~ [b]New Textures - Yes Bot Support - Yes New Music - Yes[/b]

Dagger of Time + Prince of Persia T2T HUD

dagger_of_time_ashuradxpop3hud.zip | 4.46 MB

already know by now. :P And yes, this dagger is indeed very glowy! Another fine mod from AshuraDX, both the modelling and skinning is excellent here. Although I must say the glow is a little strong to be honest and that rather obscures the nice texture detailing that is to be found on the blade itself. Glowy things are always nice though, so that isn't so much of a problem. ;) Also included in the .zip file is a wallpaper for use on your desktop, should you be a fan of the Price of Persia franchise or Ashura's mod's, or maybe both! Another cool feature is that this isn't just a weapon mod, this also includes a HUD mod, which changes the games HUD to something more akin to the one in Price of Persia. I especially liked the way that the little image that denotes saber style changed from a dagger for blue, an axe for yellow and a mace for red style, quite fitting comparisons! All in all this is a very nice mod here, the Dagger of Time is an excellent piece of work in itself with some impressive detailing and after seeing this on the forums as a Work In Progress, I am glad to see it completed and released! The HUD mod is also something pretty unique, I have never seen a HUD like this one in JKA before and this rounds the mod off nicely. Prince of Persia fans rejoice, because I have a feeling you will love this mod! Keep up the good work AshuraDX! [b]New Model:[/b] Yes [b]New Sounds:[/b] No [b]New Effects:[/b] No ~Nozyspy~

Jedi Temple

jedi_temple.zip | 22.95 MB

areas portrayed in this map simply weren\'t shown in detail. Most of this is either an educated guess or an artistic liberty, portraying a version of the temple the author likely visualized using confirmed details as starting points. To put it simply: the whole thing strikes me as a kind of improvised dealio. With that said, though, the map is still a jolly good, epic little hangout. It has all the features one would expect. Hangar, council chamber, grand hall, another grand hall (this one with a skylight), a medical room, the archives, a briefing room, and one hell of a lot of bloody passageways. Everything has been properly textured and shadered, however unlike it\'s most recent rival in the high-end mapping scene (The Enclave), very few base resources have been used here. Dynamic glow has been utilised for good effect in shader lighting, which is a nice touch. Possibly the thing which impressed me most, however, is the skybox. They\'re certainly not easy things to create, I assure you. Every minor detail seems to have been covered, including the Gunships in the hangar (you can even sit inside them!) and the lights on the walls. I\'m also glad to report that there are no visible errors for me to draw attention to. However, there is a lot of wasted space. The map is far bigger than it needs to be, and it\'s just so empty. This will cause problems for those with low-end rigs. My GeForce FX5200 was pushed to the limit, and in benchmarks this card even held it\'s own against a GeForce 7600GS. God only knows what you\'re letting yourself in for if your computer uses any GeForce older than mine, or any pre-2005 Radeon card. Your FPS [b]will[/b] die in quiet a few places due to the size and emptiness. Low-performance systems with low vid settings will also encounter the Hall Of Mirrors effect. The map may not have any errors, but expect some hardware homicide. Either way, what we have here is a finely-crafted, epic map which is a pretty decent representation of what the full Jedi Temple may well have looked like. Wander around, marvel at it\'s size and architecture, etc etc. Just don\'t expect it to run as fast as, say, Jedi Council GCX or Academy v2. ~ Kouen [b]Bot Routing:[/b] No [b]Custom Textures:[/b] Yes [b]Custom Music:[/b] Yes [b]Custom Models:[/b] Yes

Jedi Human Male Expansion Pack

jedi_hm_expansion.zip | 10.5 MB

be random. Now, I’m not going to bother going over each and every skin, because that’s just tedious. There are multiple variants to choose from, some look like the author just took the textures from one character in Jedi Academy and just made the textures match the skin map of the jedi_hm model. The head variants mainly differ in hair color, in that some have facial hair, and a few other things. The torso variants have some robe-like variants., some regular shirt variants, and some other variants. And the pants variants were basically made to match the torso, but you can always mix and match to get whatever you want. I found the skinning in most cases to be simple, but when you look at the skins in-game you really won’t care. There were some texture seams in some cases, but that can be combated with moving the texture around a bit and just fiddling with it. Basic suggestions include just practicing skinning some more, and just play with it. But one thing I was disappointed at was the fact you only get one color choice with the new variants. You can’t use the RGB shader thingy with the new skins. :( If you really want to know everything in this pack, then I suggest you download it and check it out.

Clones Ultima

clonesult.zip | 18.05 MB

have seen his original clones for JO. I, to this day, still use one of the reskins. This project is also very interesting, because it was not done by one man, but by 6. The Clonetroopers had to fight in an uncomfortable type of armor during the first years of the Clone Wars. That armor is called the Phase I armor and we've already seen it as a JO/JA model - Marz gave it to us in the previous pack. The models were kind of thin, and generally looked... strange. The new version corrects this, and they finally look like they were supposed to. There are quite a few color variations included, red, green, yellow and more. However, I really miss a SWBF1 Jet Trooper (a green clone with a jetpack, that is featured on the ARCs). It's pretty easy to do, too... Oh well. The ARC Trooper are great, lots of accessories, there are actually a little bit too many. You can't turn the jetpack off (coincidentally the very same jetpack that can be used to create the Jet Trooper) . Once again, there are many variants, and wow... They look great... When they're not moving. The legs clip through the skirt, and the pauldron is invisible from underneath. The model and the skins are really great, but these bugs always kind of down-grade it. The clones were given some better clothes later in the war, dubbed the Phase II armor. You could see the designs in Episode III. Noone has ever released a new model of these trooper before, there were, however, a few tries to skin them on a stormtrooper. The basic Clonetrooper is nice, just as it should be. There are quite a few paint jobs available, orange, green, grey, blue, red. They all have scratches over their bodies and are absolutely terrific, skin-wise. Detailed. And there's the Shadow Clone, something pretty new. He's nice, check him out on the screenshot below. There's also Gree, one of the few unfortunate clone commanders. He was slayed by Yoda on Kashyyyk. Once again, a detailed skin, everything as it should be. Next, Neyo! He seems to be an un-mirrored and reskinned Clonetrooper. He's okay, nothing spectacular. Commander Bacara is very nice. However, the skirt clips again! Bly, his troops, and Comamnder Deviss are almost perfect... Almost. Deviss doesn't have his binoculars down, as he should have (he always does in the promo screenshots). The skin is done very well, and will probably be one of my favourites. Along with this one, the 2nd Airborne trooper, sometimes called the "beehive trooper" at various JA forums. I think that he has one of the coolest SW helmets ever. I wonder, how many polies does this thing have? The skin is once again really good. Many people have tried skinning the Galactic Marine (incorrectly called the clone commander in both SWBF2 and this file) on the Snowtrooper model. It finally gets its own, but I can't say I'm impressed with it. It's too fat in my opinion, and the chest could surely be reworked. Next, Commander Cody. A wonderful skin by Darth Cuilerre (I hope I got the name right). There are a few mistakes on the skin. The strap should only be on the left leg, and the belt packs are not correctly coloured. That's because the model is mirrored, which isn't a good thing for non-symetrical skins. And last comes the Clone Commando. I can't say I like the model... at all. It's not like it should be, just take a look. The visor is wrong too... This could certainly be improved. Some of the clones are good, some are not. I miss the clone pilot and a few more variants, like the engineer. Still, the pack is going to be essential in the next couple of weeks and months, so get it or you'll only see Kyles!

Vengeance of the Sith

vengeance_of_the_sith.zip | 62.76 MB

hold your attention, though the dialogue can get boring at times. The action is there, but you have plenty of help from Kyle and other Jedi along the way. A lot happens in such a short period of time, so the story and the action is always moving. I ran into an issue at one point where two of the enemies I was supposed to kill ... they weren\'t dying ... but they weren\'t fighting either. They just ... stopped. So I just reloaded at the last checkpoint and tried again and it all worked just fine. The only things I would change about this mod are the writing of the dialogue and I would add some voice acting. Also, there were a few grammatical errors in the subtitles, but I can overlook that. :) If you\'re looking for something new to try for single player Jedi Academy, check this out.

Darth Maul as Jaden

SP again just so I could be Darth Maul. Though, it does have a certain irony to it, Darth Maul as Jaden. Darth Maul ... training to be a Jedi. Darth Maul ... apologizing for offending someone!? HA! One very good thing about this is that you have a few different Maul looks to choose from. So at least there\'s a little variety there. As with other JK2 models that have been dragged along to JA, not everything works the way it should. The mouth does not move with the dialogue and there are some issues with the dual sabers. Bottom line, though, this is a good SP replacement mod, as far as SP replacement mods go. :) ~AmosMagee

Mara Jade (or a reskin of her anyway), Darth Maul (and some reskins of Maul), Kit Fisto (the Nautolan) and other familiar models and skins from JK2. This is not much more than a replacement mod. And you all know how I feel about those. :P The other things besides replacing models and skins that I noticed here was the ability to use dual sabers instead of one, without using cheats and you can choose a red saber. *shrug* What I like most about this mod is the name of it. I\'m sorry, but it\'s just a replacement mod that had some textures/skins missing here and there and a few errors scattered about. Though this may be of value to those who want to play through the single player JA game using a model or skin from JK2. ~AmosMagee

New Death and Pain Animations

death_animations_mod.rar | 11.55 KB

a little different. That is where this mod comes in! This mod subtly changes various animations, such as the grip, pain and death animations. My particular favourite was the back flip death animation, watching stormtroopers back flip is always amusing. ;) I also liked the dodge type of animation what happens when an enemy is shot, it does indeed look like the enemy is trying to either dodge the blaster bolt you have just fired at them, or is reeling in pain after just being shot. You can get a better look at what the animations will look like in the screenshots below, although to actually see them [i]animated[/i] you will of course have to try this mod ingame! So, if you fancy a change from the usual JKA pain and death animations, give this a shot! (Pun intended). ~Nozyspy~

Star Wars Episode III JKA Map Pack - Part 3

sjc_epiii_mappack_part3.zip | 119.12 MB

one can say that they haven’t been waiting for at least one of these maps! The one I was most looking forward to was the Senate ;) Well, this is going to be an insanely long review lol, so I will give each map its own little (or not so little) section. Kashyyyk Battle: First lets start with Kashyyyk. Now, having bought the Ep3 DVD yesterday (October 31st mwahaha we in Britain get it a day before the Americans! Makes a change to get something first for once lol…anywayyy…) Probably one of my favourite battle scenes (of which there were many) was the Kashyyyk one. Giant furry people against robots? Who wouldn’t like to see such a match up ;) This map is truly MASSIVE, among some of the ace things included are many vehicles made by various other authors. Including the Hailfire Droid and the Clone Gunship. Now, I know how annoying it can be to try and fly around in a map that’s too small, and you keep banging into the skybox and blowing up…but thankfully this map has easily enough room for a dogfight in the sky ;) This would, I imagine, be a great map for gunbattles and TFFA’s because of all the vehicles and the massive amount of room. Not to mention all the walkways pads and cool features like barricades on the ground. Graphically this map is superb, there’s a little Republic Star Destroyer moving in the sky, also there is a bird that is actually flying round! That’s not the best bit though, what was really great was the fact that there were multiple rooms in the giant trees that you could actually go inside, and not only that the leaves on the trees, actually sway, so it looks like there is a slight breeze blowing! The water even looks like its lapping against the shore! Sometimes it’s the little things like that which really make a map more alive graphically. All in all a really good map here, if you like exploring or like having a battle, you will love this! Also this map reminds me of Naboo Hills By Darth Zappa, because of the vast amount of space and all the vehicles, so if you liked that map, you will love this! The Senate: Well this is the map that I most wanted to see in this pack :) Its probably a bit smaller than I expected, but like he said in the readme, it needed to be made smaller for obvious reasons! Kashyyyk was best in my opinion as a battle map, this however is probably better as a dueling map. That’s because there are lots of platforms and tricky areas to jump around, which is great whilst you are dueling! Its also good for exploring, as with all of Sith J’s maps there’s always plenty of places to explore! There’s even the little tunnel included that Yoda crawls through to escape at the end of the film. That’s not it though, this map contains a couple of extremely cool features, which I’m sure you will want to play around with…. One being a small control panel at the bottom of the senate area. If you press and hold the use button on it (similar to what you do when you are trying to hack the control panels on Hoth Siege), when the timer bar goes all the way down to the bottom, the entire map will change from being all perfect, to after Yoda and Palpatine have finished dueling, with Senate pods crashed all over the place and plenty of smoke! Another super cool feature is the Iris type thingy that opens to allow Palpatines Platform to rise up into the middle of the Senate arena. That must have been a difficult thing to make! If you have the Yoda and Palpatine models this would be a great place to re-enact their battle ;) There were only a couple of small things that bugged me here (a perfect map is impossible to get!) One would be that the Senate area itself is a bit small, but like he says in the readme, it would have been almost impossible to make it at its full size! The other would be the ordinary senate pods they are quite low detail compared to the better looking ones that are floating around, but again, if you made them too detailed it would drag the fps right down because there are so many of them. Nevertheless the overall look is very realistic, and as always this map is great fun to explore! This map is the one I was really looking forward to in this pack, and I can certainly say that it doesn’t disappoint! Now onto the last and smallest map in this pack, Vaders Reconstruction Chamber, where he dons that famous black suit! (mind you he’s pretty much crippled then so its probably actually the medical droids that don it for him, but that doesn’t sound as good…ehm anyway) Vaders Reconstruction Chamber: This map, according to the readme, is a teaser for a bigger map that will come later on. But its still brilliant! This map doesn’t appear to have bot support (although I’m sure the finished version will), but its too small to be played properly with bots anyway. This thing that really got me in this map is the atmosphere created, it is really just like what you see in the film, dark, heavy and gloomy. Its really got that evil atmosphere. Graphically it is also very good, there’s plenty of detailing to look at. What’s best of all though, is the bed that Vader is reconstructed on, press one of the 2 control panels near the entrance and the bed raises and lowers! This is another great map, and I look forward to seeing the full size version! Another excellent mappack here from Sith J, and as usual I found virtually no bugs, or things that I didn’t like, because his maps are such high quality!

Sith Council

sithcouncilv2.zip | 30.79 MB

the Sith Council map. [/quote] Incidentally, the version one of this map has had over 40,000 downloads, and comparing the screens between the two versions, I can't see how this one has gotten worse, but then again, not having played the first, I can't say much more about that. What did I think about it? Well, for starters, it's big. Really big. Not as in huge terrains or giant FFA areas, but there's a lot of small, localised areas within the map, as well as a fairly spacious outdoor area with a few trees and a pretty, (albiet very square and unatural-looking) waterfall. I'm gonna start with the music used, as I think it combines with the outdoor atmosphere and the rain particularly well, even though I believe it's from the bit in Episode 6 where Vader dies, but meh, whatever. Every time i died, I spawned back in the main room. That's not to say there might not be other spawns elsewhere, and I hope I was just unlucky, as having all the spawns in the same room would be a bit boring. I'd have to say my favourite area was the cafe, as it reminded me a great deal of a typical university cafe, and I'm all for real-life stuff. I didn't have time to explore all the secrets, but I did work out that a great deal of the main room can become destroyed, leaving a giant lava pit in it e.t.c. Lots of the rooms are very well detailed and made, but of course, there's always a gripe. Some rooms kind of look like they've been slapped on, and obviously haven't had as much effort put into them, plus some are far too dark, most noticeably the bedroom areas, which are pitch black even when they have windows... (Plus I couldn't find the lightswitches, bah!) :( There's also a few missing textures on the toilet handles and stuff in here, and looking out of a few windows you can see bits of map which you shouldn't be able to see. It's an easy error to fix using the system/antiportal texture, or a decent vis blocker, and it's unfortunate this error is here, as it does spoil the views somewhat. Oh, there's also a skin called Kahn in here, wonder where that name came from.. *cough* ;) Anyway, it's a fairly decent skin (based on the Quinlan-vos model, although the hair clips through his shoulders and the textures used on the hair seem a little odd. Aside from that it looks okay, although not very sith-like, as you'd expect with this map. It's also good to see Kahn has taken onboard some suggestions from Amy's previous review: [quote]You press a button and get a weapon or ammo. It's perfect except for one thing - you can't tell what you're getting until you press the button. It would've been nice to have seen some clear labels over each button.[/quote] Now, there's clear identifiable labels over each button, so kudos to you for fixing this. Underground, theres a lot of small, torch-lit rooms for dueling and there's also a scary-looking, but easy to complete jumping room, which leads you to a suspended dueling pad, which was nice. I guess the area which was most lacking in detail was the church/choir singing section. (At least thats what it looked a little like) This area looks just, bland and the lighting was a little nasty, with no viable sources. Naturally, there's also the water bug which isn't really avoidable (with water flowing sideways) and a few other small errors with light-shafts e.t.c but I think they're all very small and localised. To top it off, there's also bot support, and some new models made for quake3. The paths are a little strange due to this, but it shouldn't effect gameplay :) New Sounds: Yes New Textures: Yes Bot Support: Yes ~Szico VII~

Kit Fisto Shirtless

shirtless_fisto.rar | 1.34 MB

not sure if I should be ashamed or proud of the fact that I haven't so much as taken a look at the Clone Wars cartoon series. Yay for Google images, though. There's two skins in here: -A Kit fisto skin -A grayscaled version of the above, which I dare say does not need any further description. Accuracy-wise, there's nothing to complain about here. Besides, the base model is already a Kit Fisto model - one can't go wrong. Texture-wise, again, nothing to complain about. I would've liked to see some glow, such as in the original model, but that's just me. It's just fine without said glow too. Sounds-wise, it has default sounds, which I personally find annoying on a squid from outer space, but which is understandable. Here's my main problem with this skin: the model is less than ideal. There are atleast two areas where it doesn't align properly, leading to parts of the model being very slightly detached here and there. Additionally, there seems to be a minor problem with the texturing on the head that makes it look slightly strange. Most of this isn't the author's fault though; it's not like there are a lot of good alien squid models out there. Still, for ye green alien & squid lovers alike, this should be worth a look ;) [b]Bot Support:[/b] Nope [b]NPC Support:[/b] Nope [b]New Sounds:[/b] Nope [b]Team Support:[/b] Nope -Caelum

[b]Mr. Freeze[/b] - I think I could say what has been done here - the head has been desaturated and the eye colour has been changed to red.

Works, I guess. [b]The Green Warrior[/b] - Probably the one I thought looked the best - as the author put it [quote]Kyle Katarn in a new super hero role.[/quote] His torso down have been altered - All black with a green belt, a green shoulder pad and a few bits of green here and there.

No new sounds. [b]Flying Man - Default :[/b] Shadow Trooper with a lot of green sections around him and a full body shader. I thought it looked okay.. until I looked at the front and saw RTA printed above his belt in different colours. I don't even know what that stands for xD [b]Red:[/b] EVIL FLYING MAN o_O. Same as above but where it was green it is now red and there is a blue splodge on his back. [b]Blue:[/b] AQUA FLYING MAN. ... Same as Default Flying Man but his armour is a light blue water colour *hence the name* and RTA printed above his belt in white letters. He also has a green symbol behind his back. No New sounds.

Dual Lightstaff Mod

dual_lightstaff_mod.zip | 87.92 KB

Something ... in my opinion ... that is a bit too powerful and duels just end way too quickly. RED SITH has combined dual lightsabers and the saber staff and created dual lightstaffs. It\'s almost impossible for anyone to penetrate the two staffs, so you almost never get hit. And the damage that the sabers cause is just huge. Also, the author reskinned the staff saber you use for this mod. My screenshot doesn\'t really do it justice. You\'ll have to just see it in-game. So if you\'ve always wanted dual saber staffs, now you have \'em. It\'s just a pk3 you drop into your base folder, but they\'ll need to be uploaded to a server for you to use them anyone other than your own machine. Y\'know? So ... yeah. ~AmosMagee

Telekinesis

telekinesis_v5.zip | 121.61 KB

various refinements that the author has made since the last version, the essence of the mod is summed up pretty well in the readme where the author explains: [quote] This Mod replaces force choke with telekinesis (Moving people around with your mind), makes people react in a cooler way when you force push them and replaces close range drain with choke.[/quote] After trying this mod out, I can say that I much prefer the new animations for enemies when you force grip (or Telekinesis should I say), they look much cooler and more cinematic. The same can be said for the new force push animations as well, enemies now look like they are being knocked back by a powerful force, rather than just falling over. I couldn’t quite get in the right scenario ingame to test out the new force drain animation, which is replaced by the force grip animation at close range, however. Altogether this a cool little mod, and considering that it makes enemies react more realistically to your force attacks and also makes the animations of such look much cooler, I think this is a mod I will be keeping in my base folder! :) Make sure to give this a download if you like the sound of it! ~Nozyspy~

or whatever. Here we got a map which the author made basing it on what we saw in the movie, nothing more nothing less. We got the landing platform where Padme\'s ship is docked, we got the bridge on which Anakin and Obi start out fighting leading to the control room which also has the conference room, finally we got the balcony on which our two jedi fight and ultimately leap down to the giant metal arm that collapses near the end of the brawl. All these spaces look very good and I must say it\'s the most accurate in proportion in my opinion. Some other maps are either way too big in some areas or way too small, this one feels more like you\'re on a very nice replica of the set. The only thing here is that the bot routes are not defined. The music is the battle music from the movie instead of just the Battle of the Heroes, which is good. Overall a nice map, not very big for a big fight but good enough for some roleplaying or just hanging out and fighting the big fight. Download this now! :D [i]Ayane Yamazaki[/i]

my reference pics I know this is very accurate to Boba Fett's EE3 carbine, full stock and all. The only thing it's missing is a trigger. Luckily despite the fact that this replaces the bowcaster the sounds are still that of the normal blaster. Along with the model we get a lovely specular shader, but we also get some modified effects as well as new icons! You won't have to bear seeing the bowcaster icon with the EE3 carbine. It comes with its own, and they do look very nice. The strings have not been modified, however, so it will still [i]say[/i] Wookiee Bowcaster. Now for my beefs. First of all, the muzzle flash in third person is about 2 inches in front of the muzzle. This looks a bit odd. Also, when the alt fire is charging it's still green, and the bolts seem to actually be a combination of both the blaster effect and the bolt effect. It still splashes green on walls and such. Kind of minor stuff, as the model is really the candy here. Still, it would be nice if those efx and tag glitches could be remedied. You know what would also make this cool? Changing the Boba Fett NPC to have the EE3. Would spice up single-player just a bit... ;). In any case, a great weapon model that should have a place in anyone's base folder, especially Boba Fett fans. Good work! ~Inyri

Star Wars Episode III JKA Map Pack - Part 2

sjc_eiii_mappack_partii.zip | 82.43 MB

thats the harshness when everybody expects perfect maps from you SJC :) I've seen Episode III, and the similarity between the movie and the Mustafar map here is very good. Sure, it's not perfect, but in order to have a playable map which is fun, nobody mines a few small alterations. I'll start with the small errors I found, to get them out of the way. Firstly, when walking down the edge of the lava river leading to that giant waterfall, the lava doesn't always follow the path of the rocks... sometimes there's a hole between the rock and the lava flow, so you can see UNDER the lava... check the third screenshot. The textures when lava paths meet also look a little wierd but unfortunately with the q3 engine its near impossible to get that effect working perfectly. Oh, there's also quite a lot of shader errors in the console, but they won't affect gameplay. The FPS held pretty okay for most of the map, dropped maybe a little low in some bits but it's nothing to worry about, and the map is a lot bigger than I first thought, as there's a whole other area when you go through the connecting tunnels. After looking around I found Obi's ship, along with a shuttle and another ship whom I wasn't sure belonged to. The structures around the rockfaces and the rocks themselves are very well made, incredibly detailed, although might I suggest a different texture for where the lava meets the rocks? Kinda looks like scratched metal in a red colour from up-close. But I'm nit-picking here. Overall this is a brilliant map which I advise you all go and try out - on your own (there's bot support), but even better with others. Ah.. I haven't loved Force Push and Grip quite so much since Nar Shadda streets for JK2 :D Incidentally, there's quite a few interactive features here too, moving platforms across the lava, flying probes e.t.c. There's also traps here and there so you can retract walkways dropping people into the lava. Looks a bit odd when the walkway just disappears, but what the heck. I imagine with a large FFA this would be a very cool map, and perhaps whilst big for a one-on-one duel, you'll all be able to recreate that fantastic final duel of Episode III. Now onto Utapau. Don't get me wrong, it's a fantastic map - it just seemed a little bare from what I saw, especially that rocky area outside. (A few texture misalignment problems) I noclipped around and you might want to caulk a little more around the backs of the rocks to improve FPS for those with low-end PC's (I had no problems, just a small suggestion) And what are those grey smudge things at the bottom of the hole lol? The plafroms and sticking-out areas were great for the most part, however I wish there weren't quite so many locked doors. The readme states both maps have some improvements to be done, so I assume these WILL lead somewhere eventually. Incidentally, the doors in this map could use a soundset too, it's a bit odd when they don't make a noise. Again, there's full bot support, but very few bugs I found when compared to Mustafar - not that Mustafar is bug-ridden lol ;) It's just this in map there was less to go wrong I guess. My favourite section had to be the big sperical building jutting out from the rock-face. So cool... Anyway, Download it and take a look! It's very large (lots of textures, including some from his stargate map for some reason - might lead to conflicts in the future), so some of you may have to leave your PC on all night, but don't worry, it's worth it :D New Textures: Yes New Sounds: Yes Bot Support: Yes ~Szico VII~

The Jedi Enclave on Dantooine

kotor_dantooine_enclave.zip | 13.07 MB

detail than some of the others as well. Previously not seen details, such as footlockers and workbenches, are quite at home in this particular enclave. With textures close enough to the real thing to not be noticed as fabricated, but definitely not ported, you may forget you're playing Jedi Academy and not Knights of the Old Republic. The strengths in this map are definitely the very close-to-the-real-thing textures, as well as the very accurate style. Two of the most impressive bits, however, may be the Ebon Hawk, seemingly made completely from brushes instead of the existing Ebon Hawk map objects, and the impressive blba tree model. I must admit, months ago I was asked to create that particular model, but I shamefully declined. However my kudos go to SMoKE for completing it himself with excellent results. While this map is not as expansive as some other Enclave maps - it does not allow you to venture inside the Ebon Hawk, or venture outside the Enclave walls - it's definitely worth a look for KotOR fans. It includes bot routing, as well as appropriate Jedi Enclave music. Definitely worth a download as another great KotOR Jedi Enclave map.[/quote]It seems the enclave has gotten a visual overhaul. Smoke decided that the original wasn't up to his current skill level, so he spruced it up a bit. Personally I'd say the biggest improvement (and he may disagree with me on this) is the lighting -- it makes me personally more able to enjoy the [i]rest[/i] of the wonderful changes. Second place goes to the doors. I'm not even going to tell you about them -- just go open one and find out. You'll like it. Overall it seems like this is more of a fixer-upper. Everything is crisper, clearer, and overall better on the eyes. It's a great improvement, though, and it really feels a lot more like Dantooine than before, just by making a few changes to the map's presentation. The only thing it needs now is some Jedi walking around saying old Chinese proverbs! Definitely a great improvement here!

Four Armed Grevious

grievous4_mlz_1_01.zip | 1.49 MB

give Grievous four arms! You generally would expect something of a remodel, but that\'s not the case here. First off, there are now four arms. All that the author has done is split the original Grievous arm, and then raise it up, and then he weighed it to the arms. While this works, it doesn\'t look all too good. First off, the top arms are very stretched, and they only move when the regular arms move. Otherwise you have two very stretched arms coming out of Grievous\'s back. It\'s funny, as I heard somewhere that Grievous looks like a chicken. Anyways, to make him look like a chicken, crouch, and you\'ll see what I mean. Anyways, the weighing wasn\'t that great, as evidenced in the stretching. I saw some places where a couple of reset xforms could have fixed. The left arm, mainly. When you walked it would be sideways. This model could have been weighed better. Okay, other the weighing issues, the author also made Grievous hunched. Yay. Now he looks like a hunched chicken. The hunchedoveredness really messes up a bunch of animations. Seriously, when you do the /bow animation, it looks like Grievous is smoothing his nonexistent hair or giving his head a massage. The strong stance animation makes it look like Grievous is scared and is hiding behind his arms. Okay, in taking the weighing issues and the hunchbacked animation issues, this could use some more work. But, on a plus side, the author has included a four saber mod to go along with the model. But, other issues aside, this can use some serious work. But I\'m sure some of you will like it nonetheless. Bot Support: Yes Npc Support: Yes Team Support: Yes New Sounds: Default Grievous Sounds. ~Zach[/quote] The only changes that were done is that the bot now uses the four saber mod, and that works, at least. But the author also tried to make it tos that the sabers that the bot used were blue and green. That didn\'t work. This model has some serious weighting issues, I would\'ve liked to see the next version actually be a reweighed version.

Episode III - Mustafar Duel/FFA

episode_iii_mustafar_sjc.zip | 13.77 MB

don't know what the rumours are for the final movie of the trilogy. Apparently it involves lava. James never fails to impress me with his maps. Mustafar is no exception. You did surprise me, James, by making this a duel map. You never do duel maps! And frankly, I don't see this as a duel map at all. It's clearly FFA. The weapon placement is great and there are lots of weapons. There are places where you'll need to press buttons, use force or your saber to get to where you need to go. I love how interactive the map is. And it's just gorgeous. Unfortunately, there are some FPS issues when you step out and see the incredible scene of the lava pits, volcanoes and the pad above. Now let me describe this map in order of screenshots. When I first entered the map, I spawned in this room and it wasn't exactly all that great looking, though I love those doors. I saw this panel over by the window that looks out and I love to press buttons, so I did. And look what happened. :) That would be fun to play with. I like how James incorporated the "natural" surroundings with the building. It feels like this was built in the side of a mountain. The pit over there is inviting for those of us who use grip and want to toss someone down into the lava. :D And I just have to say that I LOVE the windows in here. That weathered look is great. Then I stepped outside and my FPS plummeted. ;) But that's okay. This looks amazing! The terrain is uneven and beautiful. The structure in the center has a few interesting things going on with it and then when you get to the top, things just keep getting more interesting. There's a room to the side where you'll need to figure out (it's easy) how to get inside. Press a button inside and voila! Now anyone dueling on that pad will be electructed! Fun! I thought that was the end of the map, but then I discovered that there was a bridge to another area. I followed that and went through a few rooms 'til I came out on the other side of the volcano. I followed the catwalk until I came to boxes that were blocking the path. Took care of those, and almost fell, but managed to stay on and found my way into that one corridor with the red grating on the bottom. And then I was thankful that bots are really stupid, so I was in no danger of being dropped into the lava below. As always, wonderful job, James. I don't know how you keep doing it, but your maps are some of the best produced. Keep at it!

SJC Coruscant Adventures Pack (Night and Day)

sithjcull_coruscant_adventures_pack_night_and_day.zip | 75.25 MB

bedazzlement...at least once a year, SJC has valiantly produced at least one map each year, each one's impact being the equivilant of getting a shotgun blast of awesome straight to your face, leaving a crater of glory in the aftermath. Now normally Nozyspy handles SJC's maps, but...Caelum and I wish to punish him for his sloth and impertinence >:B so we are going to double-team this map in our own collective fashion, and the Hive will celebrate as our efforts result in the explosive joy of everyone's celebratory dances and offering tribute to this map. [b]Exteriors:[/b] ----------------- Right, so, when it comes to the outside, this thing is big and pretty, in short. First of all, I should probobably note that the outside feels a bit like a maze, especially at first. This isn't at all bad though, considering coruscant is supposed to be a confusing, massive, global city. There were some very minor lightning problems here and there, but both the day and the night version had an awesome atmosphere to it. Tons of fancy details help with that - advertisement banners (screenshot #4), an awesome skybox, appropriate music and more. Outside, we find a maze of corridors, going all the way down from the upper parts (screenshot #2) to the lower parts of Coruscant (screenshot #4) and eventually the undercity, where even the sunlight doesn't reach according to SW lore. There's entrances to a variety of areas, as well as a considerable race track/highway-like course (complete with swoops - yes, you can use this map for all your racing needs), along the path of which are various bars and night clubs. More about inside areas from Averus though. [b]Interiors:[/b] ----------------- The interiors can pretty much be divided into two major classes: Beds and Bars. Sounds pretty sleezy, but hey, this is the entertainment district, what do you expect? Now, there are pretty much two main bars in the map. The first bar is the famous Outlander Club that was featured most prominently in Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones, in which Obi-Wan Kenobi mindtricked Elan Sel'Sabagno into effectively rethinking his life, a feat which, to my knowledge, did him little good. It's scary to look at its ingame carnation, because it's just so...empty, save for the bar itself. Most of the few tables that are available are just pushed off to the side, near the Holonet receivers, where there's a couple nice lil' sporting events, namely the swoop race and the ...wheelchair football match? I 'unno.. The second level access can be reached by a strange little force lift of sorts. Not much to discuss up there except where the doors go. One of the doors leads to a hall that will inevitably take you to some mini-bedrooms with 1-2 beds, depending on the room. This is where I started noticing that the doors in this map have a bit of a impatient streak in them. No wait function on most of them, but thankfully, if you hold use long enough, they decide to give you space to walk through. The rooms are pretty modest, not much to offer, but they definitely get the job done. Mostly chairs and beds, the occasional portrait, but otherwise nothing special worth noting about these rooms. The next major interior is yet another bar, although this one is a bit more spacious and is a bit darker than its Outlander counterpart. This one appears to have a little bit more in the way of seating and even features a stage where a holographic dancer is....wait a second...is that from....[b]IMVU?!? WAAAAAAAAAGH!!!!!!!![/b] [b]-=Averus explodes into a fine ashen powder. Another Averus steps in.=-[/b] Anywho, the bar also has two levels, though the method of getting up there is slightly peculiar: A jump pad. Nothing we're used to, but I can just imagine any character wearing a skirt freaking out at the prospect of ascending these pads. Other than the host of seating, the atmosphere(see: music) is pretty much the same. Nothing much to elaborate on, other than I really like the atmosphere here. The slew of posters, the less colorful bar, the...suggestive holo-images. Really feels like a Star-Warsy downtown bar. ONWARD, to the...apartment complexes. Here, a most devious set of interiors await thee. Most of the apartments here feature pretty barebones furnishings, mostly a desk with a terminal and a bed, with the only decor being some wall posters. Amusingly enough, one of the apartments has a malfunctioning door. Privacy, you has it not. The most fortunate of the apartments is one that(I'm assuming, here, since I've never watched the animations,) belonged to Cad Bane. This one is most fortunate in its furnishings, as it holds desks, bed, WINDOWS, and...some holographic droid of sorts. Not sure what it's deal is, but SJC loves him some holograms. Winding the base here, it's time to finish off and mention the roadside "underground" bar, which is the most unorthodox of the taverns. This one features a large critter underneath the floorboards. Guess what it is? A RANCOR?! OF COURSE! Most of the actual seating for this den is actually strewn in a side alcove. The main area is mostly an arena strewn with laser turrets and a control panel to unleasha deh rannycor(nice tough with the sound clip, by the way XD) Couple TVs, some more holo-decor, and you've got the underground den pretty much laid out. It's a shame there wasn't much seating in this one, maybe behind a two-way mirror, where the betters can see who wins and who gets eaten. Dunno, just a thought :D [b]Closing Thoughts:[/b] ------------------------ Part of me was surprised at just how small the map was in comparison to the file size, but considering the MASSIVE amount of custom textures and shaders that went into this map, I can understand just how easily that stuff can add up. Overall, a magnificent map, and it's projects like these that make me feel ever so grateful for the master server's resurrection. En Taro Tassadar...really? That's how I'm gonna end it? *sighs*....Okay. Back to you, Caelum. Now, quality-wise. Sufficed to say, this is SJC quality. There were some areas where the FPS of my less-than-modern machine struggled a little, but in all, this map seems stable & looks awesome. I also have to say those 3D image thingies (like the road blocking droid & the female dancer) are very fancy. There is one thingy I would like to see in a future version - an expanded interior for that landed ship (see screenshots #1 & #3). Yeah, I'm a sucker for ship interiors ;) Worth getting, though?

The Force Unleashed HUD v6

tfu_hud_v6_final.zip | 12.48 KB

much improved for this version, though the lack of antialiasing is still apparent among the edges. A small glitch overall presents itself in the armor bar stacking over the health bar - they don't quite line up right all the time, there seems to be some random shifting, usually with full health and 25 armor but sometimes at other amounts. Another remark I'd make is the ammo count being at the exact opposite end of the screen - I'm aware TFU didn't have one at all, but personally I would have at least moved it closer to the HUD element itself, just to make it easier to check status at-a-glance and get back to the game. From that analysis you can guess that it's not perfected, but it is the final version so if you're in the market for a Force Unleashed HUD for JA, this is probably the one to be using at present. -Mikouen

Better Saber Clash Effect

maybe if there was a mod which had all different kinds of saber clash effects that would be cool…unless there is already. :S Anyways, I couldn’t see much difference with this mod, to be honest the saber clash effects go so quickly after you have actually clashed the sabers, that I couldn’t tell the difference. I took tons of screen shots to try and see, but I could never get one at just the right time to see the sabers clash. :( From the picture of the flare in the .pk3 though, this does look pretty cool, so if you fancy having a change from the normal saber clash effect, why not give this a download? ;) ~Nozyspy~

as he seems to be pumping models out one a week, but somehow he [i]does[/i] manage it, and we can all be thankful for that. I do love the skin on this model. You wouldn\'t expect this guy to be pristine and completely clean - after all, he\'s a combat-hardened warrior - so Mars doesn\'t give us clean armor. It\'s burned, scraped, and otherwise littered with combat scars. I want to give Mars a big hug for attaching the arms to the torso this time. He\'s probably tired of hearing me gripe about that, but I mean it in the best of ways :p. Here attaching the shoulders is ideal, as the large shoulder pads will hide any poor deformations that might occur because of it. Once again, some pretty nasty stretching during some animations, but I\'m starting to think that should be blamed mostly on the animation. The only way I can see to rectify it would be to add another edge loop around the torso, which would unnecessarily add more polies to the model. My one other complaint, about the humanoid head, is that the mouths aren\'t rigged. Not a real big deal, since most people don\'t play SP, but it would have been nice anyway, as it\'s not really that difficult a thing to do. Other than that, definitely a model worth having, even if you\'ve never played Republic Commando. Get it while it\'s hot! Bot Support: Yes Team Support: Yes New Sounds: Yes NPC Support: Yes ~Inyri

SJC - Mos Kreetle

sjc_jkg_preview.zip | 114.94 MB

return of a legend after a long period of absence. I saw this map when Sith J started production on it many, many aeons ago, and when Sith J mysteriously vanished due to real life work commitments I feared we would never see this map. But, he hasn’t disappointed us, as with excellent timing the finished map is delivered to our doorstep! And believe me we have a treat for you here today! Before starting off the review though, it is best that I first mention the mod which this map is largely based around. This is the JKA Galaxies Mod, a mod that aims to replicate the MMORPG feeling of Star Wars Galaxies using Jedi Academy. Here is what I think is a good summary of the main aims of the mod and this map from the readme: [quote] This map will eventually form a player world in the upcoming mod JKA Galaxies, the map act as a preview to that mod. I have included instructions throughout the map given by protocol droids that are standing near shuttle ports, and banking terminals and other key areas, the will inform you that you cannot do carry out a particular function at the moment, these actions are a part of the Galaxies Mod so thats something to look forward to in the new year. The map stands as a completely playable FFA map however with plenty of areas to explore and also lends itself well to the RPGEr as there are living quarters and underground bars to name a few.[/quote] The droids mentioned are spread throughout the map and are easy to find, they really do give you instructions too when you press the use button on them, a very nice little touch there on the interactivity side there! Now lets have a good look at this very large map. In true Star Wars Galaxies style, this is laid out just as the towns are in SWG, there is an entrance and exit point, that in SWG would lead to the outside world. However of course you cannot go past these areas in this map as it would be physically impossible to replicate the completely open world that Star Wars Galaxies features. The town itself is within some low walls, which allow you to look over and see some scenery beyond, which helps prevent the map from feeling too enclosed. The buildings, and indeed the whole town has a lot of SWG references, such as the droid sounds from SWG used for the many R2 units wandering around, and also the occasional electrical hum and other such noise. All of these are an excellent touch, which adds greatly to the ambience of the map. Buildings to explore include a Medical Center, a few small shuttle ports, between which a small platform flies, transporting you to various parts of the map. There is also a droid / junk shop, some houses (including an outskirts ‘mud-house’ type area), a garage and a bar, all of which are enterable. And I haven’t even gotten to the best part yet! The best (at least in my opinion) and also the biggest part of the map is the shuttle port area. Now, you all remember Sith J’s Millennium Falcon map don’t you? Well the Falcon (a fully enterable one too!) is back for this map, docked in one of the docking bays of the spaceport. But wait, there is more! One legendary, fully enterable ship wasn’t enough to put in this space port, there is another famous fully enterable ship docked here… [b]The Ebon Hawk![/b] Yes that’s right, Sith J has turned his multitude of talents towards providing us with what I think is the definitive rendition of the Ebon Hawk ever see in a JKA map. There have been several maps which feature the Ebon Hawk, both enterable and non-enterable versions, so what sets this apart? Well for one, the attention to detail is incredible. This is definitely the best replication of the Ebon Hawk that I have ever seen. The shape and textures are spot on, though the ship itself is somewhat oversized I think (as is the Falcon) but that is necessary to make all the inside areas fit in, so it isn’t too much of a problem. All the areas we remember from KotOR are here, the bedroom areas, the storage rooms, the bridge, the central room and more. One particularly special feature that caught my eye in the central room was the holo-projector, which has hovering above it a display of a system of planes and asteroids rotating around the Binary Star System of Tatooine’s two suns. Moving back out into the map in general more features that caught my eye was the huge wrecked ship crashed into the middle of the town (very similar to the Dowager Queen that rests in the middle of Mos Eisley) and also the maps textures. The textures are of note because they seem to use some form of bump mapping, which I can’t figure out. The effect looks great, and fits nicely with the rough, grimy appearance of Tatooine in general. Another textural feature of note is the special ENV maps that certain textures have - the ones where only certain parts of the texture are made shiny, whereas the rest remain matt. I forget what this type of shader is called now, but it is a difficult effect to actually make, so well done there Sith J mate. ;) I could go on for much longer with this review, but I think my fingers might fall off with too much typing. :P To sum it up, the layout of this map is very reminiscent of the Star Wars Galaxies locations without being just a copy. The textures are excellent and have been well used, as is the lighting, especially in the underground passageways of the spaceport. These areas look very cinematic, which their low lighting and slight haze in the air. Sith J Cull is always very impressive when it comes to hunting down and getting rid of bugs and errors, however I did notice a small few that managed to slip through. These though are mostly just small areas where a texture is misaligned or not scaled correctly, and in a map this big you wont notice little things like that unless you are looking for them pretty hard. Other than that, I would say that the terrain doesn’t look quite natural and smooth enough in a few areas, but again, that doesn’t spoil the overall excellent quality and workmanship displayed in this map. Overall then a fantastic map here and a magnificent return by Sith J Cull! As far as legends go, he might not be might not be ‘The Man in the Hat’, but he certainly is back! :D [b]New Textures:[/b] Yes [b]New Sounds:[/b] Yes [b]New Music:[/b] Yes [b]Bot Routes:[/b] Yes [b]Game Types:[/b] FFA ~Nozyspy~

Survival Mod 2: Revenge Of The Droids

2: Revenge of the Droids. I'll admit that I cheated while playing this and I still didn't get past like, the second room (when I played as Immy). The enemies just keep coming! You can play as four seperate characters and it looks like each one of them has a different map that you play through. I only tested Immy and the Clonetrooper. I don't know how long it took IZaNaGI to make this mod, but he put an incredible amount of work into this. Yes it's a large download. Stop whining and download it. If you enjoy single player stuff, then you're going to love this. If you don't cheat, then it is quite a challenge. I will probably play through this when I have more time. :) That's two great SP maps/mods that I've reviewed this week. :D ~AmosMagee

!SoS! Skin Pack

zsospackalgar.zip | 20.87 MB

used and they are all selectable from the player menu, or the custom species menu. Some of these skins are from JK2, some are new, it\'s just a big skin pack of all of Darth Algar\'s skins for his clan. There\'s no way I\'m going to name them all, so let\'s just go in order of screenshots. :) 1 - The Rodian here is obviously Sith in his dark clothing and markings. It\'s a great looking skin that gives the Rodian a little bit of polish and takes away that ... I dunno ... that utilitarian look that Rodians always seem to have. 2. I have no idea what model was used for this skin. But I absolutely love the shoulder shield thingy in the back. That\'s just too freakin\' cool. Other than that, I thought the face was just a bit too dark. 3. Padme gone Sith. She still keeps that sweetness about her even dressed in shiny leather (er, that PVC stuff, right?) and in spite of the glowing red eyes and dark tats on her face. 4. Probably one of my favorites of the females included in this pack. The Twi\'lek has an ethereal quality about her. She\'s still very evil-looking, but softer, too. The light blue tattoos all over her body are almost like veins. 5. Meh. This skin kinda bugs me. That\'s Anakin, right? With the really pointed chin and really broad shoulders. There\'s just something that bugs me about the face of this one. It looks too goth for the clothes he\'s wearing or something. 6. Okay, I have mixed feelings about this Kyle reskin. I like Kyle all Sith-like and stuff. But the tag on the front, mixed with the skull (I think) on the arm, with the Batman-esque painted on mask tattoo - blah. 7. Desann reskins are sometimes my favorites. I love to see what people do with the lizard. In this case, the author attempted to make him even more evil with a skull on his chest. Meh. I like the rest of the skin, but the skull thing just seems too cliche to me. 8. I do believe this is probably Darth Algar\'s personal skin. But don\'t quote me on that. He seems to really favor the Zabrak, so I\'m assuming it\'s his. It\'s a very simple skin, with the focus on the white face with some very nice artwork. 9. There is just something about this skin that bugs me. Maybe it\'s the focus on the breasts and how unnatural they look. I do like the clothes and the face tattoos, but the bodice just annoys me. 10. Okay, creepiest skin ever. The shader is very cool and you can like, peer into this Sith\'s evil soul and ... yeah. *shudder* 11. This is such a great Austin Powers skin. The suit is perfect and he totally looks like him. It\'s just a modified version of the one by Shadow Blight. Love it. Great job on this skin pack, Darth Algar. :D Bot Support: Yes Team Colors: Yes New Sounds: Yes ~AmosMagee

of the Single Player game. Raven tried to appease us by giving us a saber in the beginning of the game in JA, but once again, it wasn\'t enough! They teased us with the promise of a staff saber or dual sabers later in the game. RED SITH deals with our complaints of not having those options from the beginning with a mod that allows you to choose what saber you want from the very beginning. So if you\'re frustrated with having to just use the single saber for the first half of the game, download this mod and play Single Player through with the saber of your choice!

Alora2 SP Fix

alora2fix.zip | 1.52 KB

always pondered why they'd bother to negate the other Alora model, other than because of the deformation hole in the back. Then again, that didn't stop the cultist from debuting, did it? Anyway, Vemarkis, a newcomer, has taken the initiative and finally fixed the issue, having the Taspir Alora utilize the other, previously unused alora model. It was instantaneously refreshing. IN-STANT-TANE-EE-USS. I checked in SP to ensure it had the intended effect, and everything works perfectly. So little effort, yet such a big difference. Why this hasn't been done publicly before is beyond me, but no more. I'm definitely going to keep this around, as I personally appreciate the change, however minuscule it may seem. Acquire this if you use Alora at all, be it an NPC or if you play SP profusely. - Averus Retruthan

Cyber Trooper and sword

cyber_trooper.zip | 3.1 MB

Behold, for it is a human merc reskin to envision a strange new trooper of some sort. The concept itself is interesting, but it sort of lost me. Suffice to say, however, the skinning is excellent, as per usual. Even the skin texture on the previously covered arms looks pretty good. The thing that pretty much lost my favor is the team skins and basically one aspect of the skin. First off, the team skins are pretty much just recolors, which is not usually in Tobe's style, so that was a slight, but not crippling disappointment. The thing that did it for me was the word "Cyber" on the back. "But Averus, it's just a word!" Yes, but it basically ruined the feel of the skin. Usually less skilled skinners do things like this, and I could have thought of several theme appropriate things(Say like" Special Forces Division 100110101 Alpha Squadron, or unit #blah) to put on there other than the word "Cyber." The weapon was also a little disappointing, mostly in the sound department. Visually speaking, it's great. A great model by Seancsnm. The tag needs some adjusting to make the weapon look like it's facing the right way, but it truly has a cybernetic visual feel to it. However, as I said, the sound department feels really awkward. The activation/deactivation and idle sounds were fine, but the swinging sounds and spin sounds were just too "soft" to feel like you were swinging a weapon. People could argue that these sounds are theme-appropriate, but logic compels me to argue otherwise in the name of user entertainment. Regardless of what I may have conveyed in the upper paragraphs, I still think you gents did a fine job. I just personally can't say it's awesome because of my clashes with some aspects @_@.

Jango/Boba VM

clonemando.zip | 3.44 MB

rather negligible) weighting and clipping issues, this model is quite good. The only real thing I never liked about Mars\' clone models was the heads/faces. They\'re well modeled, and the skin on it is pretty good (although the jawline is a bit too well-defined graphically), but something about it bothers me. Maybe it\'s too round - I [i]really[/i] can\'t put my finger on it. But hey, put his helmet on and he\'s a beauty! The one other thing I found strange was how beat up the helmet was compared to the body armor. It\'s almost as if Jango let Boba play with the helmet some and had it returned after being pelted with small objects moving at high speeds. Anyway, you don\'t want to hear me complain about the little stuff. If you\'re a detail kind of person like I am you can find teenie weenie inconsistencies yourself. All models/skins have them. It\'s what makes them interesting, and if a model or skin was perfect there would be no reason for anyone else to ever try to make them, and that would just be boring for everyone. In the [i]big[/i] picture this model is a beaut. I\'ve loved Jango since I played Bounty Hunter on my PS2, and this model really captures him quite well, so long as his head stays firmly planted on his shoulders. I was a little disappointed when I discovered the chest plates were just painted on, but quite frankly I didn\'t notice until I was about to comment on how nice they looked, so I guess that\'s a moot point. In fact quite a few details on this model are simply \"painted on\", but if you can tell at first glance you\'re better than I am. If you can\'t tell, does it [i]really[/i] matter? In my opinion, no. I can complain about it all I want, but in the end if I can\'t tell while I\'m playing, it makes no difference to me whether it\'s made of a million polies or painted on a flat surface. Low-poly modeller\'s rule of thumb: if you can get away with it, and it won\'t take away from the model, do it! But wait! There\'s more! Yes, many different variants of Jango: with jetpack, without jetpack, with a different jetpack, with no helmet, with pilot headgear... plus, if that wasn\'t enough, two variants of Boba Fett. Now I\'m not going to comment on Boba\'s accuracy, because he\'s not the focus of this pack and I\'ve had to go look at him so many times that I don\'t feel like doing a comparison, so you can judge for yourself. The soundset is also pretty good. I assume Mars took it from Battlefront2, or some other game featuring Temuera Morrison, because obviously he didn\'t make the sounds himself and no one would expect him to. The only problem with it is that it sounds designed for a clone with a helmet. So what about when Jango doesn\'t have his helmet on? Well, he\'s going to sound a little funny. However to bypass this would mean a big (and pretty much unnecessary) increase in filesize, so it\'s really kind of a lose-lose situation. We do have the works here in terms of extras, though. Sounds, as I mentioned, but also team colors (Jango for blue and Boba for red), NPC support, and BOT support. The only thing I\'d really care about in terms of improvements would be a rigged mouth/jaw. I know it\'s a time consuming thing - my personal least favorite part to weight - but after three or four times it starts getting really easy ;) Anyway, definitely a good model by Mars. The weighting\'s definitely reaching that higher standard I\'ve come to expect from Mars, which I\'m happy about, and the rest of the model just completes the package. I hope to keep seeing work of this quality! I like it when I don\'t have many big things to gripe about :) Bot Support: Yes Team Support: Yes New Sounds: Yes NPC Support: Yes ~Inyri

Naruto Skinpack

naruto_skinpack.zip | 1.12 MB

many people. But googling for the characters I was able to find that the skins show similarities to the anime counterparts. As you can probably guess it uses the cloud model, looking at the pictures I\'ve found I guess it makes sense for the hair. But are there no other models out there with shorter hair? Well the skins look incredibly flat, no real texturing to the body or the face for that matter. I do like the Kakashi skin more though.. It looks as though more work has been put into it. I\'m not too keen on the Naruto skin because well.. That orange jumpsuit looks like it\'s attached to him. A little texture on the clothing could go a long way to making this skin look better. I\'m not too fond of the face either, although you can see the similarities between it and the anime character. The model picked just makes the face look long yet comical. Points given for it being a first skin and for some attempt to resemble the character. Now the Kakashi skin, I like this more than the Naruto one but it isn\'t all that much better. For this skin I think the hair is really the let down to it. Again it looks flat and lifeless, that could be solved with a bit more complex texturing perhaps? The clothes also look a bit lifeless but at least you can somewhat believe that they are clothes instead of painted skin, perhaps because it\'s not just one colour? I\'m not sure but I do know I think it\'s not too bad a skin. Now both skins lack sound, team and bot support, although sound and team support are hopefully going to be added in future versions of the pack. Kudos for the first skinning efforts and I hope you try and add a little extra detail into the skin. Skin Stats: New Sounds: No Team Support: No Bot Support: No -Mithran-

NPC Tool v1.0.0.116

npctool.zip | 1.16 MB

like, 3 am? Yeah, well ... This is a very cool little program that takes you through each step in creating your own NPC. You name it, choose your player model, pick the default skin or one of the team versions, decide the NPC\'s size, pick the weapons that the NPC will favor, their saber color (can be custom too), their saber style, saber length, whether they use the alternate fire or not, force powers, their max force power, their regen rate, their behaviour and a ton of other things. I mean, you completely customize this NPC and it\'s so easy! You just click a box or move a slider over. This program is still in its beta stage, so the author has asked that everyone who does download this and use it, to offer feedback. Let them know about any bugs, or any improvements you can think of. It seems to me that they\'ve thought of everything for the easy creation of NPC\'s for this program, but you guys might find areas where they could improve. So be sure to read the readme so you\'ll know where to send your bug reports and suggestions. Great work guys! [/quote] This update may have changes, but there was no list of changes included, so I have no idea what to tell you guys. :) It doesn\'t look much different to me at all. In any case, I was impressed with the work that was put into this tool. Good work here. :) ~AmosMagee

Overall, I agree with Nozy: different model is gonna be needed for this to succeed. Alternatively, I'd say modify Keller even more so it fits the character's unique structure.

Dash Rendar Resurgence

dr_resurgence.zip | 54.55 MB

presents us with an enhanced conversion to JKA of a single player campaign mod that he made back in 2003 for JK2. Here is a quick synopsis straight from the readme: [quote] Dash Rendar has been hired to smuggle weapons to a mining colony planning a hostile takeover from a corrupt organization that has been exploiting them. After the reliable weapons supplier fails to meet at the rendezvous point, Dash goes on a search for him at the coordinates of where he last made communication.[/quote] So to start off, lets have a look at the first level, and its good and bad points. [b]Part 1: Investigation and Recovery[/b] [b]Good Bits[/b] Straight away, as soon as you start up this mod, you can tell it is of excellent quality. After the opening scroll, explaining a bit about the story we then get to watch custom made CG cinematic’s, which are very impressive, considering the majority of modders (including me) probably have absolutely no idea how to make a good CG cinematic. Not only were the CG cinematic’s throughout the game impressive, but so were the in-game cut-scenes, which I would say were as good quality as the actual JKA single player cut-scenes. Once the game proper starts, you are put into a huge open map, which is set on a dark, barren and rocky world. Nearby is an enterable version of Dash Rendar’s ship, the [i]Outrider[/i]. Unfortunately though only the main area in the ship is enterable, all the other doors are locked. .If you try to open them you will occasionally get a comment from Dash’s droid sidekick Leebo, such as “The ship is safe with me sir” and We’ll never get paid if you stay here all day”, which I thought were nice touches. There is a long trail that you must travel; through barren canyons and even a short tunnel at one point. The terrain is well done, and if I had to guess, I would say this terrain was made by hand, rather than with a program like EasyGen. If that is the case then this area represents a huge amount of high quality work. Once you have worked your way through the barren canyons, encountering some Imperial Troops along the way, you will eventually find yourself at a large chasm. The only way across is a hovering tram that must be summoned from the other side. Once there you must battle more Stormies and then go through the huge doors into a cargo bay like area. Though the architecture was fairly simple in these areas it was well made and well textured and brought back fond memories of playing through JK2 for the first time. Once inside the main structure you need to find your way to a conference room, which holds your ultimate objective for this level. I won’t say any more on that matter, as I don’t want to spoil the fun! :P The scripting for the level is very well done and I didn’t encounter any bugs when I played through it. It ran smoothly and all the proper events and cinematic’s were triggered at the right time. One thing in particular that I really liked was the way that every now and again, once you had passed certain points, Leebo would comm you, giving you a hint on where to go next. An ingenuitive little game mechanic there! [b]Bad Bits[/b] All in all the level was of very high quality, although there were a few things that I think could have been improved. For one, I think there should have been a bit more detail in the levels – though the architecture was good, there were a lot of flat plain areas. Also, I think some rock models scattered around the canyons would have been good as well, as they seem just a bit too clean and clear for rocky canyons on a barren planet. I think these issues could be put down to the fact that this mod was originally made for JK2, which has a less powerful engine than JKA and thus cant handle as much detail in a map. My major concern though was that the outside area was very dark. After a while wandering around I had to turn um my gamma in the options menu, because I just couldn’t see where I was going properly. I think the ambient lighting in the worldspawn should have been raised a little to make the map a little less dark, especially the canyon areas. That’s just my opinion however, and like I said, a quick change in the gamma settings fixed the issue without much problem. There was only one part of the gameplay that bothered me; getting into the conference room where your final objective is. It took me forever to figure out how I was supposed to get in there! I wont spoil the challenge for you, but I will give you one hint, for the sake of your sanity… try and find destructible crates, they will help you to get into that final room… Now lets move onto the second, and last level of the mod: [b]Part 2: Retribution[/b] [b]Good Bits[/b] This level is [b]much larger[/b] than the first level, and as Mercenary explains in his readme, the gameplay of this level is non-linear, which means that you can complete the multiple objectives in any order you want. This time around, your ultimate objective is to find the missing weapons supplier, another objective includes stopping some experiments that are being conducted on (apparently) frozen people. I think they’re frozen anyway…they look it! Some of the other objectives include blowing up some computer banks, and finding a way to shut off some power generators. This level is much lighter than the previous one, since it now in the daytime, making it easier to find your way around this time! You start off near a landing area with some tall buildings and walkways above you, and a gentle snowfall drifting through the air. As I said, this level is [b]huge[/b], much, much bigger than the first level and the areas are interconnected by many different paths – elevators, corridors, locked doors that need opening – which form somewhat of a maze. Again Leebo will comm you occasionally with information on where to go and what to look for next. There is no point me trying to describe the path to your ultimate objective, because it could be different each time you play, due to the non-linear nature of the level. This is a very interesting and clever gameplay mechanic used by Mercenary here, as it means your game doesn’t have to be the same next time around, you can complete things in a different order if you want. This does lead to some potential issues however, which I will come to a bit later. My favourite areas were probably the TIE fighter hangar and the nearby control room, which reminded me a bit of the Doomgiver levels from JK2. I must say though that those TIE fighter pilots seemed a little too engrossed in whatever they were doing (maybe fixing their ships?) as they didn’t seem to notice me when I walked in. Only when I started shooting at them did they seem to bother moving! :P Another great area is the power core type thing, at the top of which are some nicely scripted walkways that swing down, allowing you to get into the central control panel of the power core. Once again, the level is interspersed with well made cut scenes and some pretty impressive voice acting, especially from Leebo the droid. [b]Bad Bits[/b] As I said above, the non-linear nature of this level is a big advantage, as it allows you to complete the level how you want. However it is at the same time also a disadvantage. Why? Because it is easy to get lost and forget what you were doing. In a linear level, you go from the start to the finish, completing your objectives along the way. You go in a straight line, so to speak (although not literally). Whereas in a non-linear level, if you don’t keep track of where you have been, you can end up going through the same places multiple times trying to find your way around which can take quite a long time and also be rather frustrating. A few other minor issues were that the objectives seemed a little vague at times. One of them is to shut down the two power generating areas. The first one I found easily enough, but it took me a while to figure out where the second one was. I kept trying to blow up two rows of generators in a small room, figuring that since they were near the first power generator you had to destroy, they must be the second ones. But alas they weren’t, and it took me a while to figure out where the second generator was and how to get to it. Lastly there is the instance where you have to find a switch to turn off some shields blocking your path, however I feel the game didn’t give you enough information on what you were looking for – after all there are many switches in the map, how would you know which one to use? Although, that said, in the end it didn’t take me that long to find the switch, as it was in a nearby room. Still though I did panic for a moment, wondering if I had forgotten some switch somewhere within this gigantic map! [b]Conclusion[/b] Overall this is a fantastic single player campaign, which despite the few frustrations, I did thoroughly enjoy. It is a bit of a shame that the story isnt longer, as I would have liked to find out what happens next. But when you remember that Mercenary has done almost all the work here himself - as opposed to the guys at Raven software who had an entire team to create JK2 and JKA’s single player campaigns - you suddenly realise that two levels for one person is a heck of a lot of work. All in all this is a very impressive mod, and I hope to see more work like this from Mercenary in the future! :D I definitely recommend downloading this guys, you won’t be disappointed!

BGMod (Better Graphics for JKA)

bgmod.zip | 329.44 MB

claim, as I think they\'ve simply got a higher contrast which makes everything look bumpy and, dare I say, somewhat unrealistic. I guess one positive side effect is that since the textures are all smaller, the game will run better with a lower-quality machine. But then again I never had problems playing the game on an ancient machine with a GeForce 2 graphics card, which was outdated [i]then[/i], so if you\'re running something worse than that you shouldn\'t use this mod -- you should upgrade your system. This mod also changes a lot of the menus and things, so if that would annoy you (blue --> red menus, etc) then you might want to think twice about this. I didn\'t notice a significant increase in game playability either (my FPS was basically the same as it was normally). Frankly with the read-me stated 1 FPS increase between baseJKA and this mod, I don\'t necessarily think it\'s worth the download time unless you like the look better. ~Inyri

This is his take on on the famous Jedi Master which as described in the readme was not intended for release, but we are now graced with the release of this model. Now I will admit, its not perfect in places. There is a little clipping but its really only minor and to me it isn't a problem. Plus that's the JA skeleton being a pain. The detail on this model is spectacular, you can really see Yoda's facial detail come out in the texture work. His proportions are spot on as far as I can tell as well. I really don't have anything bad to say about this model, Its just, Yoda o.O. The accuracy is amazing. The only thing I would suggest is adding in different versions of Yoda maybe if there is a version 2 planned. The author has included new sounds, team skins, bot support, and Yoda is also playable in SP. Toshi has also made a custom .glm to fit Yoda's fighting style better. Unfortunately it only works in SP though. Read more about this in the readme. To really put the cherry on top, Toshi has added Yoda's saber in here aswell also made by himself. This model definitely competes with those Yoda's already out there, and in my opinion is the best one out there. This is a must have for your base folder, I demand bandwidth is submitted! -|Jorka Sho'Hen|- [b]Bot Support:[/b] Indeed. [b]NPC Support:[/b] Indeed. [b]Team Skins:[/b] Indeed.

did a forward jump I could see a space between the lower edge of my screen and the hand on the first person view. The model itself appeared to be simple, but detailed to me, although I really couldn’t see that much in-game. Then again, when you’re looking at a weapon model in-game, you don’t see much. Anyways, this looks good, and in certainly an improvement from the previous version. There have been a lot of improvements to this model, so enjoy. ~Zach

Stargate Atlantis

sgaja.zip | 25.17 MB

was going to be to the last one I reviewed. As last time, the first thing that hit me when I explored this map was that its HUGE! There really is plenty of things to do in this map, there’s plenty of places to explore, and a feature that I always love in a map….flyable custom vehicles! Let me start off with the main area, unlike last time, now I have been able to actually watch some of Stargate Atlantis on the TV, so now I have the advantage of knowing more about what the main area looks like in the program. The place you start off in is rather barren, and there’s nothing but snow and fog all around, but I presume its supposed to be in Antarctica or something? So I suppose that would be quite realistic for the setting! Mind you, if you explore a bit, you will come to a small rocky area, that is filled with Wampas! Now I don’t think there are really Wampas in Antarctica…so lets just say they are Polar Bears ;) Once through the Stargate (hopefully with no Wampas following lol) you will end up in the main area of the Atlantis City complex thing (or whatever this Atlantis thing is supposed to be :S well sorry :P…I didn’t see THAT much of the program, so I still don’t know what it is, just what it looks like lol). There are quite a few cool features in this area, the architecture is good, and it does indeed look like the setting in the TV show, I love the cool bluish windows at the opposite end to where the Stargate is, and the great skybox! Go up to the main control area, and there is a button you can push which seals the Stargate with what looks like a force field version of the ‘Iris’ from the original Stargate Series. I remember in the last SG Atlantis map I reviewed, when you come through the Stargate, on the left side of the large area you come into was some kind of conference room. But when I looked around this map, I couldn’t find it! There was just a wall there…or so I thought… I had a hunch…so I pressed my use button on the ‘wall’ and hey presto, it opened up to reveal a large conference room type area behind it! The way the wall just opened up was sooo cool. Absolutely brilliant! Travel up some stairs on your right as you come through the Stargate, and you will end up in what can only be described as a hangar for Puddle Jumpers I *think* they are called. The real skill here is actually getting the things out of the hangar! Its pretty difficult to take off in such a small place and then get out of the roof opening without blowing up! But once outside there is PLENTY of room to have an air battle, there’s even some turbo laser turrets scattered around to make things more interesting. Overall there were a lot of cool things in this map, which included some subtle things that just make it look better, like the patterns in the glass that look a bit like etching or something. But as with all maps there are always things that can be improved upon. Even for all the good points, there is still quite a lot of stuff that could be done to this map to improve it. Overall the lighting isn’t too bad, but in some places its very harsh, and bright, and it doesn’t appear to be coming from an actual light source, like a light on the ceiling or anything, it sometimes just looks like its floating. However, with all the different kinds of light fittings spread out in this map, I imagine the lighting would be quite difficult anyway. Probably the biggest problem though is the large amount of z-fighting (for anyone who doesn’t know what that means its when two objects, like say walls, occupy the same space, so as you move through the room the wall will appear to flicker. Because there are 2 walls in exactly the same area, the game doesn’t know which one to draw or something like that. Correct me if I’m wrong lol). The fps is also quite bad in places, but that’s understandable with a map this size. Oh and also, there no music! :( Not a bad map here, like with the last Stargate Atlantis map, if your into the TV program you might like this ;) Bot Support: No New Textures: Yes New Sounds: Yes New Music: No Game Types: FFA, TFFA, CTF ~Nozyspy~

JA Bonus Maps from Raven

jabonusmaps.exe | 13.53 MB

community! Raven has delivered 6 little goodies for Jedi Academy. Shall we open our gifts? :D Let\'s open the little one first. Little ones are usually jewelry ... hehe. Ah, a gem of a duel map. It\'s appropriately titled Coruscant. This lovely map has three levels for dueling. The lower area is where you\'ll spawn, the middle level has a few catwalks and some pillars to make dodging saber swings a bit easier and the top level is a narrow walkway that will make for some fun duels. Never look a gift horse in the mouth, right? Well, I may regret saying this, but there\'s only one spawn point on this map - which caused a bit of an issue for me and my bot. Regardless though, it\'s a great duel map and I enjoyed playing on it. The first three screenshots show you what this map looks like. Now let\'s turn our attention to the next gift - wrapped in silvery blue and dark red paper. :) It\'s a CTF map called Rift of Shadows. Both sides are mirror images of each other, of course. The bases have these large circular platforms that are surrounded by these huge, sharp teeth-like things. Look at the screenshots there, you\'ll see what I mean. And at the top is this spinning ball with electrical charges all around it. Very cool indeed. There are two ways into the base, which makes it easy to defend. But the base is large, so flag runners will be able to slip in and out quickly. :) There\'s also this lovely little area to hide and snipe those flag carriers right above one of the entrances. And don\'t be daunted by the maze below the other entrance - it\'s not as dizzying as it may appear. You\'ll also find some secret passageways in the dark halls with good weapons and other little goodies. :) What I found most impressive was the cavern with the water under the bridges and that waterfall/fountain. Love that. The lighting, the fog, the crumbling bridges ... I really like this map. It\'s a well-balanced CTF map that looks great. (There are 9 screenshots of this map below.) And now onto the next present from Raven. :) This colorful FFA map, Gas Mine, should be familiar to those who played Single Player. This is a great map for a frenzied FFA. Some of the towers have several levels, and others are just perfect to use as shields from a wayward rocket or a sniper perched on a roof. Even without weapons, you could have a fun FFA on this map - especially for those force who- er, force users out there. ;) I\'ve only included three screenshots to show you guys because this map, as you can probably guess, it looks pretty much the same from all angles. :) Oooh ... and that fan at the bottom there of the last screenshot, yeah, I\'m fairly sure that\'ll kill ya. I did when I fell, but I may have had low HP, dunno. The Fortress is the fourth map that Raven has given us, and it\'s like, the complete opposite of the last map we looked at. The four screenshots I included show what a bright and pretty map this is. :) Rays of sunlight pour through holes in the ceiling here and there throughout the halls of this map. There\'s a bit of greenery to be found growing in odd spots throughout the map, like high above where it\'s definitely a tight squeeze, but it makes for a perfect sniper area. There are also some holes in the walls around the map in some places that would be great for snipers as well. The map is bright, but there are a lot of shadows cast in corners that would be ideal places to hide and wait for an unsuspecting opponent. :D It\'s a simple map, with great gameplay. :) Oooh ... and there are destructable pillars! YAY! One of the great things about these maps is the variety. In the last map I told you about, there was plenty of room and everything takes place outside, but with this next map from Raven, it\'s far from organic and there\'s a lot less space to maneuver in. Conquest of Byss is a beautiful map with several levels to choose from. Take an elevator up and hunt for your favorite weapon, or duel on the bright blue force shield thingy at the bottom of the map. A fun duel would be at the very top where holes in the floor make for a precarious fight. :D Oooh ... and the pyramid glass is breakable. Yay! (There are 5 screenshots of this map down below.) And, of course, I saved the best for last. The final gift for us from Raven is the FFA map Ord Mantell Canyon. It\'s a dark map, but the lighting is perfect. Outside you make your way around many buildings that are built into the sides of mountains. The paths and the buildings themselves seem to be falling apart a little. There are canyons with shallow puddles of water and small drips coming from the rock ceiling. Somewhat hidden between two tall building is a waterfall that spills over into a small pool of water. There are many places to explore and this, I think is my favorite of all the new maps that Raven has released. :D (There are 8 screenshots below.) Each map comes with bot support, of course and there are some new textures, it seems. This was a delightful little surprise to find in my Inbox this morning and I\'m so glad we have some more solid maps to add to our servers. :D Enjoy the maps, guys and Raven wishes you all Happy Holidays. :D Bot Support: Yes New Textures: Yes New Music: No Game Types: Duel Map: Duel & Powerduel CTF Map: CTF FFA Maps: FFA, TFFA ~AmosMagee

Darth Sidious

darth_sidious.zip | 3.62 MB

do you need to know? Oh, what? Details? Fine. Textures appear to be made out of a pattern, probably in Photoshop or an equivalent thereof. While simplistic, they work well. The model itself is okish, but there's a lot of room for improvement. For a start, the shroud-like article of clothing (referred to as the flaps in the readme) bellows out, making it look like stiff padding rather than simple cloth. Next is the hood. Parts of the hood don't line up with the chest, letting you see a gap between them. This is easier to see on the "tfu" version (no shroud-like article of clothing (referred to as the flaps in the readme)). And then there's the sounds. Ow, my ears. Unfortunately, in order to acquire sounds for Sidious, one must rip them from only a handful of places, primarily, the movies. This means either A: There will be a lot of background noise, or B: The sounds will be hard on your ears due to the editing done to remove said background noise. Why, you ask? Because in removing the background noise, the voice has gained some noise 'artifacts' that are rather easy to hear. But hey, there isn't exactly an abundance of background-noise-free Sidious voice tracks available to the public, so that can be (slightly) overlooked. In all, a nice skin, but it needs work. Also, I recommend using the non-wing version ("tfu" version (no shroud-like article of clothing (referred to as the flaps in the readme))).

Sith Academy Mod

desanns_sith_academy.zip | 818.59 KB

Player side of JKA. Basically this mod changes all the Jedi and light side characters into Imperials and Dark Jedi, and all the Dark Jedi and Imperial characters into Mercenaries and Rebel soldiers! A list of changes is included in the readme, along with a general description of the story behind the changes: [quote] Just Imagine: Desann fricking PWNd Kyle on Yavin, gained more strength and killed Luke Skywalker afterwards. He overtook the Academy, and at the moment he is training Siths in the Academy, not regarding the Rule of Two. Tavion (wich overlived, due to JKII :) ) betrayed her master, and is about to resurrect Marka Ragnos, to destroy her old master. A few of Desanns old Reborn were switching sides. At all that, you are coming to the Academy, in the Hope of becoming a Sith.[/quote] Along with the character changes, a red bladed lightsaber is now also available from the beginning of the game, so you can play as more of a Dark Jedi character, in keeping with the rest of the mod. I think this is a pretty cool idea, but I also think it really needs expanding into more of a total conversion mod, as just switching the characters around doesn’t quite give this idea the depth and scope that it needs. Nevertheless, keep up the good work, and I hope you decide to expand this mod further! :) If you guys like the look of this mod, be sure to give it a download! ~Nozyspy~

Yuna

yuna.zip | 6.46 MB

with it. I'm a Final Fantasy freak and love everything Final Fantasy, so when this beauty came along it made my day. The hair, the clothes, the skin, the face - everything about this is nigh-on exact to the games. I can only think of one or two points to criticise, and even then I'm nitpicking. Firstly, the face isn't as spot on as the rest of the skin. Yes, it's still amazing, but at a close glance there are a few irregularities. Secondly (and now I'm REALLY nitpicking) was with the skins shown in the second screenshot. In Final Fantasy X, Yuna's dress didn't quite expand as wide as that about her waist, it makes her look a little fatter ;) But apart from that, this model is brilliant. It has all the neat touches and details from the game, and I'm most impressed that they've managed to avoid any noticeable clipping errors with the hanging down dress thing she wears in the first screenshot. There were some when executing moves, but trust me, you won't notice them :D There are 3 skins for this model - Yuna from FFX, Yuna (Gunner Dressphere) from FFX-2 and Yuna (Songstress Dressphere) from FFX-2. All three are intricately textured and detailed to the finest detail, but my favourite has to be the Gunner skin. It's just so spot-on! The others are pretty much as well, but the first one just reminds me of the game more than the other two. There are new sounds taken from the games, which are fine, as they sound like the real thing. I think the author could have found some more interesting ones though, especially for the angry noises (Yuna throws some real fits in FFX-2 ;) ) but aside from personal preference there's nothing wrong with these. No team skins however, and personally I wouldn't really mind as the original ones are brilliant, but maybe if you're making a v2 which is more customised to JA you should include team skins. Bot support too! I'd really enjoy some bot support here :) New Sounds: Yes Team Support: No Bot Support: No ~Szico VII~

guy from the Metal Gear Series and graves has captured his style very well, with the bandana, hair and suit. The Sounds are from the games themselves and graves has done great job adding them (It has multiple taunts). You can also select the color of the clothing using the rgb custom character select or JA+ which is real great so just say you wanted a green suit you can have it without reskinning it! ^_^. It just gets better because it\'s got just about everything supported, it has 2 LODs, bot support, OJP support and probably more so really this model is very complete indeed. It’s all looking very bug free too, I found nothing bugged or wrong with it. One of the best models you can get for JKA good job graves you should be proud and keep up the great modelling! I have no suggestions on how to improve it because there’s nothing lacking or missing, which is what makes this model great. Download this if you have good taste in models or you’re a fan of MGS.

ultimate female model that will replace Leela and hurt her feelings and make her cry, where I shall promptly laugh and then cleave through both their skulls. The result of this effort? Hapslash quality. Need I say more? Okay fine, it's really good, but it's not really not that thrilling to me. However, I'm sure the female players are rejoicing like crazy and will probably roar at me for not giving a rave review of this sensational model. I wasn't thrilled with the soundsets on Gweth at all. Apparantly they're from Babylon 5. They sounded like some uppity crank feminist who hasn't slept in five years and needs to be hit over the head with a scythe. The sound quality is decent, minus one gloating sound. Is it good overall? Yeah, definitely. I just can't say it's THAT great just because it feels like Hapslash sold out. That may not be the case, but I don't plan on playing Sherlock Holmes to find out the motive behind this model. Surrender your bandwidth immediately, lest I cleave you with a scythe myself.

Improved Saber Sounds Frequency Mod

improved_saber_sounds_frequency_mod.zip | 2.29 MB

clearly said it in the readme, but the practicality of adding more sounds to lower the frequency at which each individual sound is played is a but odd. It seems something that belongs in a much larger mod. And it\'s not even entirely a sound mod, as the screenshots tell you. It\'s just a pack of randomly selected changes. The saber sounds which have been modified don\'t quite sound all that good. There is nothing wrong with adding all sorts of new sounds, but not when the integrity of the sounds is sacrificed—quality not quantity is a significant problem with the mod. I liked the author\'s choices for sounds, but the movie rips are not of high quality, and I can often hear part of the movie in the sound. I, once or twice, could even identify the [i]Star Wars[/i] film from which the sound had been ripped, which isn\'t a good sign. It\'s not a good sign for the mod because the sounds need to be independent from the films, indistinguishable and beautiful, and it\'s also not a good sign for me if I can identify a one second sound from a film. Also changed were some of the clash effects, which I actually liked. They were irrelevant to the mod and had nothing to do with it, but alone, they were still likable. They looked far more accurate to the films, in their largeness and sudden flashes of brightness. They consisted of the saber flare when sabers collide and changing the sparks, which I liked a lot better than the default, for they looked more natural. These would be more recommendable, however, if they were included within a much larger mod or within a small saber effects mod, but with a sound mod? I can\'t recommend sounds that really don\'t sound good, and aren\'t edited well, and they just lack purpose or direction. Sounds need to take you somewhere, to make the game more enjoyable because you are hearing different, more film-canon sounds. The saber swing sounds sound more like just moving a saber, which gives this mod a lazy feeling—a lazy Jedi is unheard of. These sounds never really some together and make an experience, and then effects are thrown in… it\'s a bit of a mess. —Ra-Kom

blood is very good. Some people fall in love with gore stuff like this then this mod might be that one mod that will make you die. When you strike a player it squirts some blood, but when its a true battle it's a bloodbath isn't that delightful! One thing I wish they could do is put new sounds on these things like every 5 kills have it say Monster Kill or something similar. I liked the quality, but when you have the blood mod for both mp and sp it can mess up the quality of graphics so watch out there, but nothing to worry about :). Overall this is great for gore people now if you pass out at the sight of blood then this is NOT for you :). If you love blood like some people that I know then this is perfect for you and when I say perfect I mean perfect! It just splatters all 8 pints (I believe) worth of blood splatters everywhere even on your shoes! The blood stays on the ground and gets all over the walls if you are close enough. Great job Snowgim this is great for anyone that likes blood in their game :). -XgamerX

There\'s so much detail in this map and it\'s huge - the tower seems even bigger in this map than his previous Helm\'s Deep for JK2 - but that could just be the lighting that makes it appear so. *shrug* You can expect to have low FPS due to the size of the map and all of the effects. The rain and lightning really add to the ambience in this map. The music is, of course, appropriate. And yay! There\'s bot support included. That\'s probably one of the most important things he could add to his map since playing this map online with a bunch of other people with low FPS is probably not practical.

Ahsoka Tano's lightsaber hilt

ashoka_lightsaber_ashuradx_v2.zip | 7.72 MB

one, is Ahsoka Tano's lightsaber hilt. Which is pretty obvious ;). We get the backhanded version, and the regular version. Let me chop some bits from Nozy's v1 review: [quote]First off lets have a look at the model itself, which I would say is pretty accurate. However it is not 100% accurate, at least not to the reference pictures I was able to find on the net. The little things that stick out at the top should be flat, not round. The main difference though is the pommel of the hilt, which shouldn�t curve in again at the end, at least on one version of the hilt. Oddly there appears to be two different versions, each with a slightly different shape. These are only small differences however, and overall I would say that this model is about 95% accurate to the actual hilt (one of the versions anyway). The model itself is well made, and the texturing is also good, although they are fairly simple. Its nice to see that the author included normal and back handed variants here, allowing players to choose which version that would like. However, there is a slight issue here; the author has included a .cfg file which he says needs to replace the models/players/humanoid/animation.cfg for the back-handed animations to work properly. However I couldn�t actually find this file and even if I had, I am a little worried about replacing base JKA files like that. If you do I would definitely recommend backing up the original![/quote] EDIT: Mistake on my part, this file does not need you to replace the humanoid .cfg anymore, so that is definitely an improvement for the lazy like me :) [quote]As far as improvements go, all I would suggest is working a little more on the textures, maybe putting a little more detail into them, since they look a little flat. Perhaps a brushed aluminium texture would look cool?[/quote] He has also replaced the dull gray shiny texture with a much more nice chrome, reflective one. Enjoy =P. ~Authuran

Mandalorians

mandalorians.zip | 31.43 MB

a little confuzzeling but I think you get the idea. :P Here Laam'inui brings us a large selection of new Mandalorian themed skins, not just as complete skins, but also for use in the species customisation screen which is a pleasing feature. I will go into some more detail further on, but I think I should paste in here the description the author gives from his readme, as it sums up most of the main points nicely. [quote] This is a kit-bashed model made out of multiple Neomarz models; his clones and his Mandalorian. I DID NOT bash these models together; I came across the smashed together model and try as I might, I could not find out who made it. I even sent emails to Neomarz, but I received no reply. Nonetheless, credits to whoever bashed Neomarz's models together. And of course, ALL credits to Neomarz for every single model piece on this wonderful project. Without him, compilation would not have been possible. Credits for the sounds go to the Knights of the Old Republic game. Also, credits to the MovieBattles II team, from whose Mandalorian’s I borrowed a few textures, namely the Boba Fett textures which I modified to fit onto Marz's model and then tweaked. They did the majority of the work for the Boba skin. Lots of credits to Spanki for his facial textures, which I used from his Jedi Customisation pack and tweaked and modified for this pack. His work is amazing, and my reskinning his work for this pack is just because his facial textures are, in my opinion, the best. This is an extremely large skin-pack I began making as soon as I discovered this smashed together model sometime in April-May. I've been circulating previous versions of this skin-pack among my RPG server for a while now, but I just recently got the idea to send it to JK3files (D'oh). It contains team skins, new sounds, a species customisation menu, and lots and lots of Mandalorian goodness.[/quote] Well, I think that sums most of the main points up very nicely, now let’s have a closer look at the skins themselves. There is a wide range of skins here, including an excellent looking Boba Fett. Most of the skins tend to stick to a dark colour scheme, featuring plenty of black and dark grey and other subdued colours. However a few of the skins have a nice splash of colour here and there which livens them up. I especially liked the orange and black Mandalorian armour. Not bright orange mind you, but more of a burnt orange, the two colours went together very nicely here I think. We also have one in desert-sand coloured armour, and one in a kind of forest green camouflage armour, which was my personal favourite out of all of them. And that is to name but a few, there are plenty more to choose from ingame! The skinning job is excellent, and I didn’t notice any bugs whilst I was testing these skins out. The range of customisation was also most impressive, with a choice of heads both with and without the helmet. Also changeable was the backpack, for which you have three different selections, the fourth one being no backpack at all. One thing that did bug me a bit though was the shine on the armour. Personally I am not particularly fond of putting a shiny shader on armour, because the JKA version of ‘shininess’ doesn’t always look that good depending on what type of texture you apply it to. That said, there is certainly nothing wrong with the way these skins look, its just that I personally am not that fond of shiny shaders being applied to skins. One other thing is that there is only one team skin for each team. Considering the range of skins in the default team menu, I think it would be cool if more red and blue team versions of these skins were made for use in team games. Overall though an excellent skin-pack here, with a wide range of customisation options and good skinning. If you are a fan of Mandalorian’s, or want a cool new skin-pack to get your teeth into, give this a download! :) [b]Species customization:[/b] Yes [b]New Sounds:[/b] Yes [b]Bot Support:[/b] No [b]Team Support:[/b] Yes ~Nozyspy~

BoC Duel Observation Deck

boc_duel_observation_deck.zip | 33.56 MB

Hand, we are taken back to the observation deck, the key scene where Dooku meets his \"fair enough\" end. (Better than Grievous\'s, far as I\'m concerned =_=+) So then, I will start out by saying that the entire scene is ridiculously accurate, of course. I mean seriously accurate. Darth Norman even included Chancellor Palpatine himself in the chair, held by the energy bonds. Oh yes, and recall that part where Obi-wan gets crushed under a chunk of catwalk? Use force push and BEHOLD =_O you too can be crushed like Obi boy. The real party has to be outside, however. The battle outside rages quite well. Laser bolts flying everywhere, Ambient noise to assure it, ships flying around in the background, the wonderful skybox, the little starfighters flying around in the background and of course, a fun little jedi starfighter zooms by the window. Can it get any better? Mebbe ._. I noticed only one real \"bug\" in the map, which really wasn\'t that big of a deal. If you shine your saber over Palpatine in the chair, his skin starts to change color to your saber color O_o. It\'s very odd, and I can\'t quite say personally why it does that, but I just wanted that to be known. Other than that, a marvelous duel map. This definitely will make a fine addition to your projects =_= New Textures: Aye New Music: Aye Secrets to plunder: Aye Bot Support: Aye - Averus Retruthan

original HUD. Darth NormaN, who you would much more readily expect to see a map from, seems to be expanding his horizons. This very tiny, interesting, and futuristic HUD should be great for people who find the default HUD clunky and find that it obstructs their view of the playing field. Definitely worth looking into! ~Inyri

Jurancor Park

sjc_jurancor_park.zip | 53.51 MB

buttons if I had been playing alone. :P If these screenshots look familiar at all and you have seen Jurassic Park, then Sith-J-Cull has done his job. His accuracy is astounding. But he mixes it up a bit here and there to make sure the map has good gameplay. This is definitely one of those that combines decent areas for dueling, FFAing, RPGing and areas to explore. From the helipad, I cautiously entered the park through the large metal gate. (If only the fence was really electrified.) The enormous wooden gates welcomed me and one of the first things I saw was Sith-J's Restaurant. Amusing. :) And then I saw the Rancors. *gulp* Now, I admit I did explore the map before I got the tour from James, and so when I first saw the Rancor, I wasn't sure if a fence was going to spontaneously break and a Rancor come charging at me. So I ran through pretty quickly and touched NOTHING that had those yellow and black striped warning tape near it. But when I was with James, he made me push 'em. I then quickly climbed a tree or building to get out of the way of the hungry Rancors and Wampas. :P There are some custom swoops included for this map. The review and file for those to follow this. Weapon placement was done well. Oh yeah, those barrels are like, fun to play with. :) You'll find tunnels all around the map that'll take you to other parts of the map. Great for getting away from a Rancor or for just easily exploring - since this map is so big. The details in this map are impressive and here's a good example - go into the museum/center thingy. Pretty incredible from the things he included, the windows and images, fire extinguisher and even the little mosquito DNA movie and ride. The tour even includes the hatchery and it's just amazing. I think my favorite little detail has to be the fossilized walls. And InGen written in little places here and there. There's a lot more in this map that I didn't even mention or show screenhots of. So download this. Now. You won't regret it. Bot Support: Yes New Textures: Yes New Music: Yes Game Types: FFA ~AmosMagee

Nina Mod 1.5

nina_1.5.zip | 36.19 MB

As a result, she is neither Sith nor Jedi, but is host to a number of neutral powers and one power of each side of the force. I believe the author describes her well when he says: "But talk about money with her, and she’ll become your best friend." Larry has proven that he has a firm grasp of Radiant with this latest addition to the Nina storyline. If you want to see the original review and screenshots, go here. In addition to the original mod, Larry has added a third level to the mod based on Tatooine. He has done a wonderful job of capturing the SW feel to his levels, even though I think he could have supported it with a better storyline or more expansive levels. The only bug in the mod was the lack of voices. There ARE cutscenes, but the author seems to have left out the audio bytes for each scene. Overall, I felt wanting for bigger, more including levels. A custom skin for the heroine wouldn't have hurt as well. -Sared

Revan\'s Castle

burg.zip | 3.69 MB

then. It\'s unfortunate when someone makes a new map and they either don\'t have beta testers to spot simple mistakes or they forget to add a texture, or rename it or something and a texture goes missing. I\'ll bet there\'s a good little 40\'s detective type story thing in there somewhere. \"The Case of the Missing Texture.\" Aaaaaaaanyway ... I spawn into this map and standing right in front of me, blocking my way over the bridge to the castle is a freakin\' Rancor. And he looks hungry. Soooo ... I noclip into the castle. LOL There I find a ... um ... what are they called Weequays? Well, there\'s a guy up at the top with a gun, and then down below, I\'m greeted by a couple of guys with sabers. Really there doesn\'t seem to be much more to this map than that. You fight some stuff, you find your way to the end of the map. Maybe I missed something, I don\'t know. For a single player map, this leaves a lot to be desired. And I wouldn\'t dare suggest you play it as an FFA map on a server. I\'m guessing there\'s only one spawn point.

Tron Legacy - Enter the Grid

tronlegacy.zip | 2.26 MB

unfamiliarity with the latest Tron film I know a cool skin when I see one, especially when it has glowy bits! Mmmmm glowyness... Eherm, anyway, this skin is based in part off the character of Rinzler from Tron: Legacy and having had a look at the pictures I could find of this character on t'internet I think the author has done a good job on the likeness. Certainly he chose the right model to reskin as it has just the right shape, however while the skin itself is good, the shiny shader that has been applied to it is way too shiny in my opinion and obscures the detail on the clothing itself. Looking at some reference pictures I think more of a satin sheen would be better, I’m pretty sure there is a texture/shader for that somewhere in JKA's assets, I know I have used one of the Byss floor shaders before which if my memory serves me correctly has more of a satin sheen. Though that was for a map I’m sure the shader and texture can be reused for a skin. Despite the somewhat overbearing shiny shader this does have team skins and also some cool new sounds which is a big plus, while I can understand the difficulty of finding/making new sounds for a skin I definitely think it is well worth the effort! The readme does say that there are other colour variations for this skin, including orange, green and others, these did not appear in the skin selection menu and the readme does not include the model codes to get them, so that’s something that’s worth including next time. All in all a cool skin here, especially the glowy bits, which you will need to have dynamic glow enabled to properly enjoy of course, though as I said that shiny shader is a bit overbearing. Definitely worth a download if you are a Tron fan or are looking for something glowy. ;) Keep up the good work RedFury!

TOR Hilt Pack

tor_sabers.zip | 3.71 MB

the last six years now, and while the development team at SOE have added lots of great new content and have made great strides in improving the game after the ludicrous debacle that the \'New game Enhancements\' were, that whole episode has unfortunately stained SWG in many peoples minds, and it remains a \'what if\' in terms of the massive potential that the game had that has been wasted. Bioware, I am sure, will not make the same mistake! Anyways, while we wait in anticipation of what could be one of the greatest Star Wars games (if not one of the greatest MMO\'s, period) of all time, our old staffer Jose Carlos has popped up with an excellent pack of hilts, three of which are based on concept art for the game, one based on Ven Zallow\'s lightsaber hilt, and one based on Darth Malgus\' hilt also. As with Jose\'s other mods, the quality of these hilts is quite excellent, and there are staff and single hilt versions for the discerning Jedi to choose from. Or Sith, as the case may be. One of my favourites has to be the \'Centurion\' staff hilt, its nice and shiny (I like shiny things as well as glowy things :P) and those spikes look pretty scary too. Even more deadly looking though is Darth Malgus\' hilt, which looks like it has two axe blades on either side, as if a super hot beam of pure energy wasn’t dangerous enough! All in all an excellent hilt pack here, accurate too, from the reference pictures I was able to find. The only real complaint I have is that Ven Zallows hilt looks just a bit [i]too[/i] shiny. Keep up the good work Jose, I hope you will make some more TOR themed hilts once we have more info on what they will look like ingame!

Ingame Character and Saber Menu

ingame_char_saber_menu_v2.zip | 10.25 KB

would not have made it under normal circumstances, it has been removed. Apologies to both Awakibiji and Master Ibonek.[/i][/b] Amazingly enough though, it would appear that this version of the in game menus will make up for this grievous error. Why? Well first off, a brief recap on this mod's function: This mod allows you to evoke the player creation menu and saber creation menu while playing single-player. A very nice function, if not slightly cheating. The previous mod only allowed you to switch a new model and a single saber model and color, and you had to activate a separate button to change it. This version, however: - Fixed the saber menu so you can evoke duals and staff - You may now choose the red saber color for your weapon. - The changes are automatically complete upon exiting the menu. This is definitely an improvement, but there are a lot of issues that crop up if you abuse this menu too much. For example, if you change from staff to single, you still have the staff stance in your repertoire of styles. If you change to ANYTHING while possessing dualies, you will still retain the second saber. This can result in you possessing both a staff and a single, which neat as it sounds, makes your animation incredibly buggy, since the games' trying to figure out which set to use...and failing. However, if used properly, this menu is quite the asset. YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO. GET IT OR SIT ON IT. - Averus Retruthan

Star Wars Movie Duels

install_star_wars_movie_duels_v1.01.exe | 255.64 MB

admitting powerful opposing forces. This mod is dedicated solely for Single Player purposes, built for those waves upon waves of masses who want to jump in on the key critical prequel battles. Yes, that's right, prequel battles only. Rather despairing for those of us who would have wanted to take on the beastly form of Vader that isn't a total pansy boy. However, I digress; ONWARD TO THE BEEF =_=! First off, it's time to point the bony finger at the technical issues. First off, practically in every campaign sequence, there's a bit of a saber issue: If you cycle to one particular blue stance, whose name evades me, it locks up your stance cycle choices, pretty much =_=. This may make it a little difficult to fight in some already difficult fights =_=+ A small issue with the hud seems to be that the right saber indicator's "MD" is backwards, but that's easily ignored. One final bug to mention: Quicksaving is not exactly a good thing to do for immersion purposes. Why? Well, when it loads, the model you're playing as will usually screw up unmercifully. Worst instance being in Dooku's. Trust me =_= Now then, for the actual synopsis and destructive force of this mod. First off, know that this mod is actually presents you with a number of well-scripted and pretty well choreographed battle sequences, complete with clips from the actual movies. The scenes vary in quality and length, depending on what player you play as. That's right, you have the CHOICE to pick between one party over the other. Which character you play will change the scenario to a varying degree. Each scenario contains a bonus mission that you can use to mix things up with >_>! Behold, the options available to you. Each mission has an Easy, Medium, and Hard setting, which you can view how they affect your battle. For the sake of brevity, I will be referring to the campaign sequences broadly, so as not to spoil the fun, and save my wrists =_= [b]Episode I[/b] [i]Outskirts of Tatooine -[/i]This is a decent recreation of the battle between Maul and Qui Gon out in the desert. This one is a little different in the fact that you'll not actually engage your quarry immediately. In both Maul and Qui-Gon's case, you have to go through a varying amount of Tuskens. Qui-gon sadly has to tote a kid along, albeit he's not much of a liability. Personally, I found this battle to be a little lopsided in difficulty =_,= if you don't play fair. For kicks, I decided to fight Qui-gon with Maul on his trademark speeder. Suffice to say, it was quite amusing to watch him perish. Qui-gon actually got the short end of the stick, because he doesn't have many force powers to defend with. Suffice to say, the bonus mission was a rather amusing twist. [b]Episode II[/b] [i]Encounter with Count Dooku -[/i]Probably one of the best in the bunch next to the Battle of the Heroes campaign that will be explained shortly. This battle is a relatively accurate battle recreation of the final Episode II lightsaber battle between Anakin, Obiwan, and Yoda, as they take on the malevolently awesome Christopher Lee.....you know him as Count Dooku =_=. Anyway, the only oddity I noticed was some of the lousy repetitive combat action in the cinematic sequences. Otherwise, it's near gold, in terms of accuracy. You'll not be disappointed, except perhaps in the bonus mission, I suppose. Didn't feel very inspired, but I digress. Allow me to preface by saying that Episode III was sadly the most fleshed out one. This is understandable, seeing as there were more battles, but something tells me more could have been added to the other two (bare minimum being Duel of the Fates.) [b]Episode III[/b] [i]Rescue Over Coruscant -[/i]The classic battle aboard the invisible hand. A well-scripted and effectively used scene. At this point, there wasn't much worth noting other than the hefty length: be prepared for some serious hardship when in combat, no matter what side you're on. The bonus mission is an interesting new spin on what could have occurred aboard the Invisible Hand. You would be wise to take a look. Short as it is, it's still amusing to think about. [i]Engaging General Grievous -[/i] To preface, yes, you will be going up against all four of Grievous's arms =_,= fear them well, or use them well. This battle I found to be rather amusing, particularly in scripting, as there were some interesting little surprises once the battle got underway =_=. Mid-battle cutscene sequences felt a little dry, but fine otherwise. My favorite sequence had to be the final electrostaff combat scene between the two. Nothing more amusing than going staff to staff =_,= unless of course, Grievous feels like taking potshots upon ye. Bonus mission is okay, albeit not great. [i]Battle of Heroes -[/i]Yes, the ones you EP3 fanchildren have been waiting for =_= *sighs* Suffice to say, this one was probably the most epic, both in scripting, mapping, and cinematics. This battle was pretty much the most impressive, and it took massive works. A rather impressive feat that I noted in the second half of the battle, whilst on the sinking lava machinery, there are bits of ash and lava in the air that hiss against your saber. A nice touch =_,= This one I noted had actual very large differing outcomes, depending on what character you fought as. Whilst playing as Obi Wan gave you the canon ending, an Anakin victory had you...well =_= I'll just let you fight for that. Bonus mission added an odd possibility to the mix of who could attack Anakin. I got exhausted and didn't play through it all, so you will have to find out what happens =_,= Done with all that? Well then, try out the CHALLENGE MODE! Yes =_= a ladder-esque combat sequence in which you can choose what character you fight as, and engage in a series of battles versus different characters, some of which you don't normally see fight =_=. Well, this has all been fun and all, but I've finally defeated the bulk of this mod's content =_= not literally, as midway, I decided to enable the convenient "god mode" button to help speed up the process, rather than get slain time and time again. This mod is quite challenging, and will probably give you great pride in defeating everything. I can safely say that the large file size is worth the epic battles you will have =_,=. BANDWIDTH TO ALL, FAR AND WIDE, OR ELSE I WILL REND YOUR SPINE ASUNDER FOR MAKING ME TYPE ALL THIS CRAP IN VAIN =_= - Averus Retruthan

Either that, or I retarded.(or both =_=) Combining it over the rest of the attire, I definitely have to say that it mixed in quite efficiently, with a grace that seems to make Obi Wan almost leap out and strangle spider monkeys. There are a good number of versions, some good, some not. The Battle Worn and 2 default skins are excellent, and I've no complaints about the robes =_=. The General Kenobi skin, however, seems a bit...well, the only word that comes to mind is "ghetto". Case in point, the robe's brown sleeves were removed to make way for the white sleeves. I don't know what this was intending to do, but it just seems very unflattering. Other than that, it was rather appealing. The sad thing is: the sounds don't work.

Highspeed Melee 3

you must put [japlus_gla_anims.pk3] with JA+ Mod. (Means you MUST have JA+ installed. Something I will NOT do) One more, a balance wasn\'t appropriate with multi-player. Therefore, some are being adjusted. Because a problem was found, fast stance was changed to new stance. Then, even a single-player can use a new saber stances. 1.Melee motions The number of frames of meleemotion and a speed were revised. Former back running was deleted, and the left kick and front get up were amended with multi-player. One back flip was changed with single-player. 2.Saber stances Saber stance of medium and dual was added newly, and fast was amended. 3.Melee effects Melee effects with single-player were amended. 4.Melee sounds Melee sounds were amended.[/quote] And here’s the previous review: [quote] Well, first off, this is a melee and animation mod, so it changes a bunch of animations! It has a MP and an SP version. It changes melee animations, and gives an optional saber stance change. However, the file size has been vastly increased with the fact that you can choose which things to have, be it just the saber stance, everything, everything but the saber stance, and what-not. So, we trade file size of customization. I\'m just going to start off with the new saber stance. It changes the stances for Strong and Fast styles, as well as Staff. It doesn\'t change the stances for Dual sabers, or Medium style. It does change the walk back animations, however, but only for fast and strong styles. Although with the way your players head moves to look at people, your head looks like it\'s going to twist off. Also, on ledges if you position yourself just right while using the fast stance, your character goes wild and you start to go into something that resembles a loop. But, you can get out of it by just going over the ledge. The run back animation looks...funny to say the least. It looks like the character\'s on a wheeled chair and is going all over the place. He really looks like he\'s sitting down. Now for the melee part. This does change the melee animations in JA+. For better or for worse, that really for you to decide. I did notice a small thing with the left and right roundhouse kicks (Hey, it\'s what I call the kicks when you do alt attack + W+ A/D). Anyways, the animation would have a brief pause after doing it, so your character would stop for a split second. One kick, I did like was the regular alt attack kick that was modified. I was disappointed that this didn\'t have more changed animations. This overwrites JA+\'s animations, so I\'m not sure if this will work on a basejka server. Now, for the SP version. From what I can tell, it has most of the features of the MP version, except for melee is sped up, and there\'s no saber stance changes. But, there is an added effect to the kick. It looks like a small explosion. Yay, now everyone seems to have either explosives or bags of blue stuff hidden in your shoes. This certainly took some time, so if you like it, download it.[/quote] ~Zach

advances. However, it didn\'t quite tickle me that much. I will start by saying that this was a well-developed SP mod, and it shows given the conviction of the team responsible for it. The voice actors were decent. I only played a little fraction of it, given time constrictions, and from what I\'ve gathered, the cutscenes were voice-acted. On terms of the actors, most were decent. I say decent because most didn\'t seem to emote enough. I felt as if I were trapped within a world of teenagers, rather than a HORDE OF PEOPLE THAT ARE OLDER AND HAVE BEARDS! Now, the storyline revolves around a secret abandoned imperial project that \"Nova Unit\" has been assigned to. Nova Unit, in turn, assigns it to our protagonist. I believe the unit was mentioned in the previous chapters, so play the previous to understand their malevolence! On a theatrical note, allow me to say this: I wasn\'t pleased with the sudden plot-twist so early. Granted it\'s an important one, but it seems WAY too early to just bring that in. It would have seemed appropriate at a more key location instead of an apartment. Also, what was the point of the stormtroopers? Random people just attacked, seemingly guarding no one important. I don\'t know, perhaps just for target practice...*SCYTHES a stromboli trooper* I just didn\'t see the point at that time in the story. Overall, I suggest you all offer a prayer to the download god so that it may grant you this SP mod. This mod was rather entertaining. It also reminded me that the SP AI is much more smarter than I remembered... Download if you hate humans or if you want to kill time in SP. - Averus Retruthan

users. And quite a few of his weapons. And some new animations. (Yes, I'm aware that there are previous versions of this - however, I'm referring to it as "new" since it's been extensively overhauled, and in truth I really wouldn't have known they were related just by looking at them.) Dan Kappahn, aka DAK, aka Antizac, brings us a great model pack here. We'll start with Adult Link. I can say, that it looks very much like Ocarina of Time, only more lifelike. If I saw Link walk round the corner on my way to college, I expect this is what he'd look like. The accuracy, considering the difference between the sources of the engines, is quite surprising. The customisation offers the three tunics - Kokiri, Goron, and Zora (green, red and blue respectively, for those who don't know), as well as three extras - purple, cyan and grey. I'm not sure if these were actually used in any of the games, since I've only played A Link To The Past, Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask and OoT: Master Quest, but they look just as natural as the 'canon' colors. You can also make your own with JA+'s RGB selectors. Black and gold look rather cool, if I may say so. Wonder what masks those correspond with - Ninja Mask and Paladin Mask, maybe? :p My gripes with the Adult model are few. The boots - towards the top of the boots, the skin seems to turn into a flat black color. This doesn't detract from overall quality, but it's still not very nice-looking. Second is the holster. It looks good, and is a nice touch, but it doesn't really do anything. For JA+ users, it could have been added as a holster, but the swords don't seem holster-compatible either. Now onto the 'Fierce Deity' skin. While it does look like the Fierce Diety version of link, I do have one complaint. The eyes look quite dodgy the way they were skinned. That's just a minor gripe, and not really noticable ingame though. Other than that, it's just as high-quality as the adult Link skin. Next up, is Young Link. He certainly resembles his Ocarina Of Time counterpart very well. He's a bit chubby, though - I suppose with the baddies defeated, he's missing his excercise. One problem with Young Link, is that no modelscale.cfg was included. While this would do nothing for a lot of people, considering most servers run JA+, it would have been a nice touch. Not many gripes here either. The weapons are next. Included, are the Kokiri Sword, Master Sword, Hylian Shield, Kokiri Shield, and two versions of the Hero's Sword - one from Twilight Princess, the other from Majora's Mask. The weapons are all modelled... well, like weapons. They closely resemble their LoZ counterparts, but like the model, they've been changed a little to look more realistic. I didn't take seperate screenshots of the weapons, but I tried to include at least one shot of each with the model screens, so take a look for yourselves. Now, I admit, I didn't test the new animations pk3 which has been included, but apparently it changes the dual saber stance to something more suitable for a sword and shield. Anyway, this is a great pack, and a very nice upgrade. If you like this, download it. Even if you just like swords, get the swords - they're worth it. ;) ~ Kouen [b]Bot Support:[/b] Yes [b]Team Skins:[/b] Yes [b]NPC Support:[/b] Yes [b]New Sounds:[/b] Yes

While this mod consists only of three playable maps, it is actually quite long - I've been testing it all morning and I just only now finished. The story revolves around a Iridonian (Zabrak) mercenary named Phelan who has been hired by the Alliance to investigate a disturbance they did not have the resources to investigate themselves. This leads Phelan on a quest that brings him farther than a mere mission for the Alliance and introduces us to a new threat (which I shall not spoil for you). The maps alone are beautiful, and they are quite consistent from beginning to end. The architecture and style of the maps doesn't change half way through, which is nice. Unfortuntely when I finished testing I had nearly 40 screenshots, so I had to cut it down a bit, so I do recommend you play it to get the full appreciation of the beauty of some of these maps. Now all mods have bugs, and this one is no different. In some of the elevators there was a bit of z-fighting between the red and green buttons. I had a couple of problems with some cutscenes, though I can't say whether or not it was an isolated incident without playing through the mod again, and I told Shadriss I'd have it posted some time today ;). However the mod itself makes these few bugs seem quite insignificant. This mod isn't for the light-hearted who want to just blast on through. It's going to take some thinking, but hopefully it'll be enjoyable. I know I certainly enjoyed it. However make sure to pack up your blaster with a few extra clips - you're going to need them. Highly recommended. Download now. [b]UPDATE[/b]: After speaking with Shadriss and retesting the last two levels I have discovered the cutscenes (and part of the second level, actually) only get bugged if you never obtain the lightsaber. If you do get it everything works wonderously. Now if you're paying attention, like I wasn't, it shouldn't be much of a problem. Just remember that each cutscene has significance ;). ~Inyri

version) skins, but the ones that I found weren't perfect: One had a good model but not a great skin and decent sounds, one had a good costume and face but whose model was buggy, and one had a great lightning-scarred face, but the author explicitly stated that he disliked the costume. So, I took these three and put them together into one non-robed Palpatine skin that I think is good. As for the robed versions (Darth Sidious in red and black robed with hood), I found two great skins that just needed sound.[/quote] Rather straightforward. The author makes it clear that he has acted as nothing more than a 'rearranger', and properly credits all the original authors in his read-me should you like to look up the original files. Now to be honest, as I was reading the read-me I couldn't remember what the heck Palpatine was wearing at these individual parts of Episode III. However after looking at the skins here they look pretty good. Despite the fact that I personally thing the original authors could have done a much better job on the facial textures, the arrangement of the graphics here seems to do ol' Palpy justice. So if you're looking for another Darth Sidious or Senator Palpatine skin to add to your collection, see if these float your boat. Also don't forget, the author has included Sidious' saber in this pack as well, with both single and staff functions! Not a bad looking saber, actually, and I'm pretty picky about my sabers.

GJ Tower

play in for several reasons. First let\'s just take a look at it, shall we? With that \"sky box\" and the flaming sword statues ... I\'m already disappointed. But what\'s this? It\'s a lovely tower. I really like it, actually. In my opinion, it\'s one of the few things this mapper got right. Outside though, he just had to put in the traffic below. Meh. It\'s supposed to add ambiance, but it\'s really just a distraction in this map. That third screenshot is a secret entrance thing, if I recall correctly. And in the fourth, there\'s a table and some benches on that all-too-familiar red carpet. By the way, is this map even lit? You have the requisite this-is-where-we-sit-when-we-have-a-meeting-but-never-really-use-it area. So, architecturally this has some interesting points here and there. But overall, the author has failed in making a fun map. Even visually it\'s not fabulous. The clear glass textures is overused. The map doesn\'t even look like it\'s lit and the different textures that are used are quite boring. The map doesn\'t have good flow and would be difficult to really play a good match in. I think you have a lot of potential though and I\'d love to see what you do next. :) Bot Support: Yes New Textures: Yes New Music: Yes Game Types: FFA ~AmosMagee

along with other species. These are also compatible in singleplayer as “/playermodel [whatever.” Most of these skins are, well, blue. While I’m not fond of that shade, I suppose the convenience of this outweighs it. Two of the featured npcs are the ones the author and his friend used in singleplayer. While I honestly don’t think too many people worry about that sort of stuff, it is interesting to see how other people are creating their characters. Either way, if you need some new npcs for whatever purpose (filming, fighting, etc), this is probably a nice place to start. ~Wassup1444465

And there are some great duel areas added. Now onto what I really was impressed by - the bonus maps. :D The Kill Bill map is lovely. Snow falls all around the place where that famous huge fight happened. The textures I just love, the lighting is great, and it seems fairly accurate. I adore this map. FFA Streets is also a great map and reminds me of a duel map I used to play on. I love that night city look. The neon lights, the buildings, all of it looks wonderful. Oh, and it totally has a ship, just like JK2\'s FFA map NS Streets. Don\'t judge this final version of the Matrix Reloaded by the screenshots, you need to download the map and play it to really get a feel for it.

Today, we have an addon pack for the Jaden species, that adds new Jaden options. Several people contributed to it, and apparently more contributions are wanted for it. This pack contains contributions by Ryojin, Inyri Forge & Kalek_Dakar. What do you get? -7 new human male Jaden legs, 8 torsos & 11 heads. -1 new human female Jaden leg style, torso & 1 head. -2 new Kel Dor male legs, 1 torso & 1 head. There's various styles here, including armoured Jadens, cultist Jadens, Assassin's Creed Jadens, and even a cybernetic robo-Kel Dor Jaden. Yes, that's right, iron man meets Star Wars. Honestly, I'm pleasantly surprised by this pack; all of the skins are fairly good, and it's definitely worth a look. Solid pack here; would love to see it being expanded further in future.

I noted no graphical defects or errors, and honestly, why should there be? This hilt makes no demands upon itself, but rather says: "Welp, here I am.

Disco Lando's Lightsaber Effects Mod Pack

discolandosabermodpack1.1.zip | 1.03 MB

from looking in the .zip there are quite a variety of files to choose from which change various lightsaber sounds and effects. A full explanation of what all the various .pk3s do is in the readme, so I strongly recommend that you have a good read through it! Here is the list of .pk3s that the author included: [quote] [*] Removal of the green spawn/idle invulnerability shield (requires cg_rendertotexturefx 0). [*] Removal of the green damage shield. [*] New saber clash effects. [*] No saber sparks, no "blood" sparks. [*] New saber damage effect (localized electric flares when Sabers touch body parts - to replace the damage shield - so you know when you're dealing/receiving damage). [*] Round-tipped lightsaber blades with bolder but anti-aliased cores. [*] All new, painstakingly resampled authentic lightsaber sounds taken from digital copies of the Original Trilogy as well as other sources. [*] BONUS: Lightsaber color changing script. [/quote] Its still good to see new mod's which change the saber duelling experience of JKA though and make the sights and sounds more in line with that we all saw in the movies. I especially liked the new round tipped saber blades. I always thought the round tipped saber blades from Episode 1 and 2 were the best, I have never really liked the Blade tips as they are in JKA. I know there are other mod's which do this, but this mod bundles all the little ones into one pack, which saves time! The effect of the saber hitting flesh is also different, so now there is a sort of blue cloud instead of the purple cloud and sparks. I must say though that this looks a little odd, since I wouldn't expect someone's flesh to produce a weird plasma like blue cloud then it burns at the tip of my lightsaber! The saber clash/lens flare effect was definitely cool though, much better than the base JKA version! This mod also includes lots of new movie authentic sounds, again improving the realism of duelling. I agree with the author when he ponders why Raven didn't access Ben Burt's library of movie lightsaber sound effects when making JKA. But anyway, we have then now! There is also a .pk3 which removes the shield flare when you are hit and one that is supposed to remove the green bubble effect that appears around your character when you spawn. But you need to make an autoexec.cfg file which has the line "cg_rendertotexturefx 0" in it for this to work, which is a bit of a pain. To be honest I would have expected this to be included in the mod! Lastly, there are also some bonus sound files included in the .zip, although not included in the .pk3's. it appears you need to extract these to particular folders in your base directory, which again is a bit of a pain. Surely it would have been better to include these in the .pk3's? Anyway, overall this is a nicely rounded mod with plenty of things to help make your JKA experience more movie like. Fix those issues I mentioned above, that people for the most part simply wont want to be bothered with (making the autoexe.cfg for example) and this mod will be even better! :) Keep up the good work! ~Nozyspy~

Iron Man - Movie Skinpack

ironman_movie.zip | 6.84 MB

your following this years blockbuster movies, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, The Incredible Hulk, Batman: Dark Knight and The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor among others, you should also know about the Iron Man film! Now I'm not an Iron Man aficionado, but from the trailers, the film looks fantastic, and I did used to watch the Iron Man cartoons when I was younger. Infact there was this one episode where he somehow found himself in a glacier or something like that, and there was this frozen mammoth in the ice. Frozen mammoths always fascinated me, so this naturally caught my attention. Unfortunately I had to go out before I found out what happened, and so I don’t know the rest of the story. That mystery still haunts me to this very day! :'( Ehem, anyway, on with the review... Well timed for the shortly-to-be-released film, Phonock brings us his excellent Iron Man skin pack! There are basically 6 skins in this pack, 4 available as normal skins, and then 4 more for the team skins, 2 for red and 2 for blue. Yes I can count, that does make 8 altogether. :P However, one skin out of both teams is the same, it just has different coloured eyes. The author gives a list of available skins in his readme: [quote] DESCRIPTION: In this file, it has six version of skins based on Iron Man movie and also based on movie related like video game and action figures. 1.Iron Man - based on movie Mark III. 2.Tony Stark - faceplate flip up. 3.Silver Centurion - this is based on movie action figures. 4.War Machine - This is also based on action figures. 5.Mark II - based on movie Mark II. 6.Stealth Iron Man - and this one is based on video game.[/quote] My personal favourite was the all-silver one, though I'm not sure if that was the 'Silver Centurion' or the Iron Man Mark II, but all of the skins looked great. As far as I can see they are all accurate, and there is a good range of different skins to choose from, depending on which Iron Man version is your favourite. They even have new sounds too! I couldn't find any bugs with these skins, and there wasn't anything amiss that I could see. The only small gripe I have is that some of them looked a little too shiny, I personally think they would have looked a bit better with more of a matt, or satin shine. But that's just me. Overall I think they look fantastic! :) All in all an excellent skin pack, that has been well timed for the Iron Man film. It gets a big thumbs up from me! :thumbsup: If you're a fan of Iron Man, want to add another skin to your comic heroes skin collection, or just like the look of these, give it a download!

However, it\'s still a rather almost complete transformation. Even the mouth is rigged =_=. The big downside here is the lack of sounds, or rather, the lack of taunts.

Cyan lightsaber blade + new force effects

one: [quote]This mini-mod will change the orange saber blade to cyan blade. I added some old force effects I modified, too. Force push/pull will not have the \'blur\' around the person, same with grip (only in SP). I also added JK2 lightning and orange force drain I did once. I edited the saber cores, too. They\'re simple, but they look good in-game.[/quote] Now, to fill in the holes. This won\'t work with JA+ at all, nor will most of the force effects. It\'s basically most effective in base JA. I really didn\'t notice the difference in the saber cores in their own right, except that they blur pure white when kata\'ing. The force techniques do as they say, but one was left out: Mind trick no longer has the sparkly aura around a person\'s head when under the influence of MT...this change, to be honest, is stupid. Hate to be blunt but =_o that sparkle aura was what made sure that you knew people didn\'t see you. Adding this mod would basically turn MT into a \"shot in the dark\" power. Granted, may add to some challenge, but honestly, I wouldn\'t take chances. For the majority of you who don\'t use MT, then don\'t worry.

The other thing is the \"S\" on the chest isn\'t a \"S\". But this isn\'t the author\'s fault. The skin map for the file is a refletion of the chest, so only half the symbol is there. But the skin itself looks cool. But the other effects are cooler. You get superman\'s powers! Yes, that\'s right! The author has tweaked with effects, and used parts from his own DBZ mod to give superman all of his powers! You can fly, use laser vision, and more! This is certainly a cool pack, and I think I\'ll keep it, just for it\'s coolness. Sure, it doesn\'t look like superman, but who cares? You get his superpowers!

MagnaGuardVM

magnavm.zip | 6.35 MB

because it\'s my job. Let\'s start with the good parts, though. A lot of detail went into this model in terms of skinned on parts versus modeled on parts. That is immediately noticible. The skin also seems relatively accurate, depending on which pictures you look at. Some pictures I saw looked blue, as this does, and some didn\'t, but that could be due to lighting. I did find some areas of the skin to look a bit strange, as if Mars had used the sponge filter on it, which he may have. However overall the textures look very good when the entire model is taken into account. So the flaws. Yes, even Mars isn\'t perfect. If he was I\'d wonder if he was an android or something. First flaw - shoulders once again weighted independently from the body. I do have to admit, though, with an automaton that\'s probably a better choice. It still bothers me, though, to see the area were the shoulder would normally be attached when the arm moves. Next flaw - very evil stretching in the upper torso during many animations. There problem here, though, is that the animations in JA are first of all quite hideous themselves, and second of all are not designed for a being that doesn\'t bend, like a robot. However the stretching could be more subtle, but unless you\'re looking for it you probably won\'t notice. I was impressed by the cape, though. No, it doesn\'t move realistically, but I\'ve come to believe that\'s impossible in the Quake 3 engine. This cape deforms amazingly well with the given animations, as well as I think may be possible in JA. There is a bit of clipping here and there around the left shoulder, but for the most part it doesn\'t clip. Overall, a well-done model that I\'m sure you\'ll all be more than happy to download. Well made given the restrictions of the engine. Mars was also nice enough to include a modified version of Hatrus\' electrostaff, which the bots use, so if you have an older version of the staff you may wish to use the version Mars has included, for the best experience.

be on JK3Files, so that\'s an added bonus! I\'m hoping the author of the sounds doesn\'t mind that I added him [i]and[/i] Mars as the author. Since this model isn\'t yet up on JK3Files, I feel the need to critique it as well. My first impression of it is that she is quite stocky. It doesn\'t seem to look that way in-game, but in ModView she looks a bit heavy-set. The skin itself seems rather good, except in a few areas, and despite the proportions of the model I like it well enough, and may actually keep it. Now for the sounds, added by Kurt Libengood. He says he ripped them from the Episode III game. Now I don\'t want to know any more about that, because odds are it\'s not legal, but a few sounds never hurt anybody (nor made anyone not buy a game - that\'s the point of a EULA, right?) so I\'m going to let them slide. They seem to fit the model, and as I have no idea who Serra Keto is I can\'t comment on it any more than that. I [i]can[/i] say there was a particular taunt I absolutely adore... \"They\'re right, the dark side [i]does[/i] make you ugly.\" Made me laugh quite hard :p So for a model that had no original sounds, we now have some.

Singleplayer Yoda 1.0

sp_yoda1.0.zip | 2.51 MB

know my opinion - I\'ve always felt that they are pointless and a waste of space. That said, a woman has a right to change her mind. ;) Replacement mods for JK2 were often just Kyle being replaced by the model or skin du jour. They became boring to play and review. Now I know that replacing the main character with Yoda has been done before, but for JA, it\'s just so much more entertaining. I love the first glimpse of Yoda on the ship ... you see Rosh sitting there as the camera pans over to Yoda, and then all you see is an empty seat and just a small shot of his ears. LOL Love that! Anyway, Yoda is the proper size and though everything doesn\'t all line up, I can forgive that just because it was fun playing with Yoda in this. :) What I like best about this SP mod is what\'s promised for the next version. All of Jaden\'s sounds will be replaced with Yoda\'s sounds and Yoda will even have a custom made ship (read the readme for more info). If only there were a Yoda impersonator who could do the voice-over for the cut scenes (if that\'s even possible). That would really complete this mod. :) I have a feeling that SP replacement mods are going to be much better for JA than they were for JK2 and I\'m actually looking forward to playing some now. :) ~AmosMagee

There are also two new full skins, a very Sithy looking bald guy decked out in red armour and a more Jedi looking guy in shiny bronze coloured armour and robes. For some reason the character avatars for these two skins did not show up and simply appeared as blank black pictures, which was a little confusing, but nothing that makes me want to tear my eyes out in horror. Included as an added bonus in this pack are HOUOU's backhanded saber hilts, should you want something more Force Unleashed style! Before I became aquanted with hollywood_g1's excellent customizable skin packs I considered the customisation menu to be a bit cumbersome for modders to use, but having seen this authors excellent and continued support for it I would encourage other skinners to have a go at including customisation options for their skin packs too, the end product is really quite fun! There are many skins I like in this pack, but I particularly liked the Rahm Kota themed simple metal chest plate and the more Clone Wars themed white Jedi armour with robes, though I should also note that some of these skins can be colour customised using the colour menu. Also interesting is the different coloured robed Jedi Mandalorian armour; if you have a look in the readme, it explains what each colour means in Mandalorian culture, which is a nice touch! If I had to suggest anything to add for next time, I would suggest making some organic Yuuzhan Vong themed Jedi armour, sort of like the kind that Darth Krayt wears in the Star Wars Legacy comics, though without all the pointy sticky-out bits!

The Sith Stalker For Jedi Academy

Presenting for the public's appraisal: The Sith Stalker, from The Force Unleashed Series. I have a feeling this Darth Shiftee fella waited a good long while before emerging out of the shadows to strike at you with this. Why? The model's quite pro, tee-bee-aech. God knows I could say over 100,000 negative things about the subject matter, but this model? Next to none. The only faults I can point out are minor clipping issues at best, minor enough not to worth mentioning, since for once I don't feel like ruining peoples fun.(for now...) But yeah, deforms nicely, moves nicely, and to top it all off, it has a hilt to accompany it. Aye, you read correctly: Sweet stalker hand on hilt action. Ooh yeah, and don't think it's some crappy thrown together hilt. The quality of this sucker is just as grand as its wielder. So, skins, how are the skins themselves?! Immaculate. Yeah, pretty much. Clean, crisp, and even shaded. This goes for both the model, team skins and the saber. I swear, this thing practically can stroll down the Champs-Élysées and turn so many heads if it weren't so frightening to babies. The only real weakness in this model is the sounds. Not in like authenticity, mind you, it's just that the sound files coulda probably stood for a quick couple processes through the ol' Goldwave/Adobe Audition/Whatever program you prefer. In its current form though, it's still quite acceptable. I'm just trying to find a way to poke fun at it XB 1.1, since 1.0 mysteriously disappeared, has now been uploaded, with the option to use the character in Singleplayer Menus. Now all is well. So, that's it. I'm done. No more will I haunt your screen with text. Go. Now.

The hilts remind me distantly of the default Praetor hilt, but they seem to maintain a degree of appeal and accuracy to their reference material. They look good, I won\'t lie about that. They definitely have a nice humble design about them, and look like they won\'t be too much of a resource hog(in the small way that sabers can be, that is.) I\'d say the real genius lies in how he markets this thing. It\'s clear to me Ash knew from the start people were going to want that diversity offered by TFU2\'s backhand wielding marketing tool, so we have a standard handed version for those of us who like treating our lightsabers like actual swords, and a backhand version. The backhand version alone functions as a one-bladed staff, BUT...he left out enough restrictions so that you, as a standard player, can indeed wield two backhand sabers with impunity, and you can still throw the right hander, so basically, y\'got nothing lost. Combine this with some VERY easy and memorable saber names, and you got yourself a very difficult weapon to simply pass up. So, any bugs to mention, Averus? Not really, this thing pretty much has nothing to break in itself, I\'d say. It\'s a solid, complete package, and I can\'t think of any reason why this would merit a V2, save for maybe if you wanted to add sounds or something, but honestly, a saber hum is a saber hum, I think we\'ll be okay. Off with ye, now, I have hands to wash. - Averus Retruthan

Eve of Redemption

redemption_1_1.zip | 45.84 MB

is, but I have several guesses. I probably missed something, so don't mind me. In this mod, you play as a reborn. You are out to get revenge and also to make a place for yourself in the galaxy, neither of which can be done at the same time. The plot wasn't bad, actually - I expected a bit less at first. The visuals are well done - in fact, I saw several things that just took the cake. First off, the atmosphere in the sewer system was something I have never seen in JA before. Second, the skybox on the coruscant map enticed me so much that I literally fell off the balcony admiring it. Great work! The cutscenes were well-done. The voices are somewhat quiet, but they are there. For non-professional material, they are actually high quality. I admit, I was impressed by the voice of the main character and the imperial officer. No horrible artifacts, no clipping, and good pronounciation. Good work here as well. The [i]only[/i] gripe I have is that the game was short. Very short. Now, I do understand that a [i]lot[/i] of work went into this, and I am very appreciative of what has been given - it's one of the best single player mods, to be sure. If there is ever a future version, though, it would certainly be nice to see another level, There you have it. Look at the screenshots while the file downloads - I'm sure you'll like what you see. ~Dretzel

Qui-Gon Jinn Customization

qgjc.zip | 35.27 MB

a cool character. Therefore I am most pleased to be able to review this mod! :D The model that has been re-skinned is Toonces Qui-Gon, and each customisation category; heads, torsos and legs contains a huge variety of different choices. These include scary looking grey skeletal Qui-Gon parts (including a head with glowy red eyes!) various combinations of facial hair and hair colour and also Obi-Wan and Count Dooku’s faces placed on the Qui-Gon model. The Qui-Gon / Obi-Wan mix in particular looks really good! There are various different coloured robes and also ones with different patterns, belts, detailing and such as well as a choice between cloak and non-cloak versions for each. These include camouflage robes and one eye popping-ly colourful set of robes, among many others! The same is true for the legs, featuring a wide array of colours and different styles of boots. Just have a look at the screenshots below, they give you a good idea of just how many options you can choose from. Along with the customisable options, this pack also comes with a selection of pre-made skins. These include the scary grey skeletal Qui-Gon, with ripped robes and glowing eyes he looks like something you would se in your nightmares, or perhaps on the front of a Metallica album! There is also a version with a blue face and white hair, along with nicely decorated greenish robes. This guy is apparently an R.A. Salvatore character called Drizzt Do’Urden. I have absolutely no idea who this character is, but he looks like something straight out of Lord of the Rings! There is also a cartoon style Qui-Gon skin, which is one of my favourites. Personally I think this type of cartoon style skin should be done more often, perhaps with Anakin, Obi-Wan or even Luke or Kyle skins. All the skins have new sounds, often different from each other, including good use of some of the Ragnos sounds for the scary looking Red Faced Sith Qui-Gon. Textures from other authors have been used, however Jashugan has also modified and made many textures himself and overall the quality of these textures is excellent. Considering facial textures that were not designed for this model have been used, the author has done an excellent job in fitting them to the Qui-Gon model. This is a very well put together mod, and I did not find any bugs whilst testing it. However as for things to be improved upon; I would suggest that if there is a v2 of this, more choice of legs should be added, especially different styles of boots. I also think that some more torsos like the one on Drizzt Do’Urden should be added, perhaps with different patterns and colour combinations. There are also only two team skins, so I think team skins should also be made for the other pre-made skins available from the main menu. All in all this is an excellent customisable skin pack, and an added bonus is that it has Single Player support for [b]both[/b] JKA and JK2! Considering the amount of options available with this pack, you could spend ages just making cool looking character combinations as well as using them ingame. ;) In fact, all in all there are 32 heads, 32 different torsos either with or without a cloak, and 17 different pairs of legs! I definitely think this file is worth a download, and I look forward to Jashugan’s future work!

Rikkens Starkiller skin with SP support

vaders_apprenticesp.zip | 2.33 MB

mediocre, actually. There's hardly any detail within the outfit, save for the yoke, the back of the torso, and the belt. The little detail I can see on the arms is so dark it might as well not be there. Furthermore, the inside of the cloth cover is invisible. Overall, it's a good try, but it dun quite cut the cake. This file does, however, contain HOUOU's backhand saber, so that's a nice consolation prize. That, and it has bot and NPC support, so the package itself ain't that bad. Just the skin needs a lil more work.[/quote] Basically what we have here is that exact mod, except now it shows up in the player customization menu so it can be played with in Single player. Have fun. ~Laam'inui

Hercules and Xena Skins

hercules_xena_skins_versi2.zip | 100.4 MB

that it adds/replaces a whole bunch of skins with their Xena or Hercules counterparts. Don't ask me why Luke=Hercules or why the rebel pilot is now a Mon Mothma reskin that still has a man's voice... these details are beyond me. What I do know is that I apparently didn't watch Xena long enough to know who all these characters are, or what they're supposed to look like. I do know what Xena and Hercules are supposed to look like, though, and I can tell you right off the bat that no base assets model is going to be able to capture either of them... and I wasn't too far off. Most of the skins here actually are a little off, mostly because the faces are one notch down from blasphemy. It's like the author put a lot of effort into adding all this stuff, but very little into refining it. Most of the faces are not quite lined up -- a lot of the mouths don't match the mouth on the model, so when they talk they look silly -- and a lot of skin tones between meshes don't match. And don't even ask me why you would skin an arm texture over a poofy sleeve. That one I can't begin to fathom. Long story short, this needs a lot of work and a lot more attention before it's playable in an enjoyable fashion. As a big Xena fan myself, I'd love to see a great Xena skin. The one here only has a passing resemblance to Lucy Lawless, which is for me at least a big disappointment for what could be a very interesting mod, if the author would take the extra time, work out the kinks, and really place the appropriate emphasis on the details. The big picture is all good and fine, but without the details it's more of a sketch than a portrait. ~Inyri[/quote] Now let’s start by saying that this looked interesting to me and though I was no fan of Hercules and Xena I do like however Greek mythology. First we’ll talk about all the goodies in this mod. There are sabers, hilts, tons of skins to mix and match, weapon reskins, hotkeys assigned for both cheats and npcs. Also you have a very handy button for changing skins on the fly. And many npcs. Now let’s discuss the material. Some of the skins look decent but the textures don’t seem that great to me I don’t know why but there is something funky about them. The clothes don’t really look natural up close and the faces seem to have a bit of skin tone mismatch. The sabers were good but not really all that impressive. It comes with a few hilts and while some look good some just look like they were rushed and not fully completed. Now this pack also replaces the menus and loading screens with a collage of pictures from the characters of the shows but the menus just have a small pig with a red cape which doesn’t really make any sense at all but ok. The Single player campaign was completely changed with the skins on this pack. There were some bugs, at the end there was this bug that maybe only happened to me, but when Tavion is possessed by Ragnos her body is changed to this untextured reborn looking thing. And the same happens when you kill her. Also at the end Kyle’s replacement gets swallowed into the ground and Hercules which replaces Luke is also swallowed only to his hip so you see your character walking next to a legless Hercules and Kyle seems to be talking from under the concrete. Oh and the Mon Mothma reskin is still acting as a pilot which freaks you out when you hear such manly voice, but I guess it's funny though. The MP element is just standard, but with all the skins available including the Ragnos reskin which in my opinion is one of the best looking reskins in the pack, adds a bit of variety. Overall it’s an original idea that fans will love given the options to select either mortals, gods, and demigods. It provides a great selection of outfits and for the male audience there are some provocative outfits included here. The one skin that I would say definitely needs it’s own model is Medusa as the Twi’lek female doesn’t really make justice to this specific character. I hope that the V3 is better, this is an improvement don’t get me wrong I saw V1 but it still needs a lot more work, maybe some more texturing and make the skin tones match, and use shaders to help you out. So if you like Xena and Hercules or just Ancient Greek Mythology then this pack is for you just don't get your hopes up too much. [i]Lady_Trinity[/i]

Katana Pack

katana_pack.zip | 821.34 KB

shinobigatana and shirasaya. Then, to ice the cake, we have one sword to own them all - the dual masamune. Just a shame Jedi Academy\'s saberstaff style isn\'t good for this sword. :( Anyway, the models are all constructed well enough, the skinning job is good although I suspect a little photosourcing, the swords all shine well in-game thanks to a well-done shader. There\'s new sounds, although those grate on the nerves after a while. Single-player support has been added. New hit effects have also been added, which while not realistic, I love \'em all the same - just perfect for fantasy swords, and they sort of remind me of Onimusha. A nice little touch is that the saber throw in single-player is disabled while using these swords, and you\'ll get a kick instead. This fits the whole fighting style typically used by samurai, and let\'s face it, would you throw an elegant sword like a shinobigatana around? In multi-player, the throw is still present (unfortunately). If you like katanas, this pack is for you. You can even mod the NPCs to use them for some funfunfun. Just be aware [b]not[/b] to use these in a dark room with a high-end graphics card, max vid settings and dynamic glow. The hit effect can be... startling. ~ Kouen

Cable Blade

the author made a regular saber hilt that didn’t look too bad, then he added blades on each side of where the saber blade would be. And what do you get then? Something that’s scary whenever the blade is on or off. For a composite saber/sword, this doesn’t look too bad. I would use it! There are several different versions of this saber/sword, all with different coloring. ~Zach

Anakin Hilt Collection

included, and were fully usable with a little .sab file modification. If you use this file as-is, you\'ll get graphical errors, won\'t be able to select the new hilts, and for some odd and very much unknown reason the Retaliator hilt has been renamed as \'Exar Kun\'. However, like I said, the saber models are still in the pk3, and they\'re still usable. What I did manage to learn from raiding the pk3, however, is that the sabers are also not MP compatible (the notInMP parameter has been set to \'1\'). I think the author should definitely remove that parameter. New sounds are included, and the menu entries are available in both English and German. I couldn\'t isolate the error which was causing my problems, though. From what little I could see in ModView, the models themselves are good quality, so if you want some extra Anakin hilts and you\'re competent at modding .sab files, then this might be of interest to you. The hilts are good quality, and for someone who knows what they\'re doing, it\'ll take three minutes tops to fix the problems. For the rest of you, well, you\'ll have to hope that the author takes up my strong suggestion that he tries to isolate the problem and resubmit a fixed copy. ~ Kouen

really, the simple fact is this had effort put in and it shows; besides he has my hair and I love my hair :D His backside is slightly odd but it looks fine when he grabs hold of a saber so that\'s no \'biggy\'. Speaking of that backside, the detail is insane! He actually has two very clear butt cheeks and the shading of the skin emphasises them even more. I\'m sorry to linger on the backside but it really did \'stand out\' at you! Moving away from the backside now...*cough*... lets get back to that hair and face. The hair is like perfect, it looks like actual hair, even has rough edges and a fringe. The face looks great, well done, very defined and verging on paint-realistic.

While the skins don’t look too bad, they look…raw….like I can really see the blurring. But then again, I’m looking at it close-up in modview. (Yes, I did look at the skins in the game) Anyways, I can see most of the lines that some of the skinning was blended from, but then, there’s always SOME of those lines left. I must say that it would be mean to nit-pick on those little things, so I’ll just say make the skin more defined. Now that was for the Aayla skin. Onto the Quinlan Vos skin! As with the Aayla skin, some of the things look kind of blurred, but not too blurred so that you don’t know what it is, especially from a distance. Which is where the skins will be viewed: from a distance. So the blurring doesn’t really matter since you’ll be able to see it all just fine from in game. As I said before, these do have new shaders, so they’ll look pretty nice. Bot Support: Yes Team Support: Yes Npc Support: Yes New Sounds: Yes ~Zach

Ancient Outpost

be able to find each other! This map is huge, perfect for large free for all, and it's just beautiful. Mixed with indoor and outdoor areas, both the various corridors and the mile-high rock faces are wonderfully done. The outdoor areas are bright, but not brighter than you would expect given the overcast sky. The meshed walkways connect various buildings, leaving many places to potentially fall to a gruesome death in the lava below, and the rocky skybox perfects the atmosphere. To add to the somewhat industrial feel, large pipes stretch from one building to another, so [i]if[/i] you fall you might be lucky enough to land on one of them. And boy do those pipes look stunning. I've never appreciated plumbing quite so much before. The inside is a mix between an industrial atmosphere and a more medieval one. The walls are mainly stone, lined with crystal-like lights, but some more advanced technology makes an appearance, such as control panels, lighted bridges, and some very neat looking mechanical doors. The lighting hops back and forth between white lights and blue lights, occasionally accompanied by a red glow from some lava. The really neat part about this map is how varied the architecture is from one area -- or even one corridor -- to the next. You'll rarely feel like you've been in the same place twice, but somehow the map still holds a sense of unity of style. Both the lighting and architecture vary enough to keep the map continuously interesting, and there is no lack of details, ranging from arched bridges to warning signs. A good word for this map would be [b]complete[/b]. It is very much complete, with very little lacking or that could be significantly improved upon. Even botrouting has been included, which is a must-have for a map as large as this (I can imagine some great bot matches to be played here!). Definitely a must-have.

Advent Children Buster Sword Replacement Mod

I like it, though. It's certainly better than pretending the Buster Sword is brand new, but it looks like he just darkened everything up and added a default photoshop texture over the sword, and it just isn't working for me. First of all it looks like the texture stretches, which is no fault of Shadowknight's, but it should have been taken into account. Secondly the texture pattern is just too large. It is better, though, unless you like brand new shiny swords. [i]That[/i] is purely a matter of taste, though. There was one boo boo the author made, which you can see in the screenshot. See, I didn't have Orion's original pack when I tested this, but the author basically just copied the original .sab file so it includes all the entries from the original, so there are a lot of hilts listed that don't actually exist in the pack. This isn't a really big problem, though. If you don't have the original pack, don't use those hilts. If you do have the original pack, then there's no problem. ~Inyri

Unfortunately it seems you are unable to choose an uncloaked Grievous as an NPC, which is somewhat of a problem because the cape hasn\'t been culled properly and it\'s perfectly see-through from the front. However you can choose an uncaped version of Grievous in single-player. I forget whether there was already a mod for this, though I think there was... But this also includes some other things, like some new NPC files. However for one of the NPC files you will need to download the magnaguard separately. Before you get all excited over a four-armed Grievous, make note that not only do the extra arms not move independently of the original two, but when you swing they become completely detached from the body, so it\'s really nowhere near as exciting as it sounds.

The map is definitely signiture LDJ eye candy and the FPS is quite telling of that. I have a decent system (not the best, but not ancient) and I was getting about 20 FPS in that one big area with the things ... y\'know, those big glowy things. What are those called, damn it? Oh, and those red shield things ... those were changed a little. An animation was added and it just looks a lot better. There is one thing that I remember from one of the older versions and that is that we were able to go outside to play. But that\'s blocked off now. It\'s all just to look at. :( Anyway, for those who are experiencing LDJ\'s maps for the first time - I\'m sure you\'ll enjoy this map. He\'s always quite accurate and detailed. And the JK2 version was a lot of fun, at first. I have to admit, I got bored after the novelty of the map wore off. My biggest complaint about this map is, of course, the FPS. While the gameplay is great on this map (okay, I do have a lot of memories of being pushed, pulled, gripped and thrown off into the pit, only to be saved by one of those walkways and jump up behind Shroom and kick him off ... heh heh), there\'s nothing here that most of us haven\'t seen before.

Dragonball Z Mod JA

tell you about what\'s changed and not refer to Dragonball Z at all. Most of what has been altered here are the weapon effects. Unfortunately, none of the weapons themselves or the names of the weapons have changed. Which I think would be something that should be considered for a second version. The effects look great, but I\'ve heard that some of the effects can drain FPS. I didn\'t notice any difference (yay for my upgrade!), but you might. Also, there\'s melee included ... but it kinda sucks. It\'s pretty much the stance of whatever saber you\'re using, without the saber. :/ The author included a melee bot for you to play with. Meh. Oh, and if you turn on cheats, you can fly! Yup. There\'s a pic of it down there so, yeah. I kind of expected more from this mod, to be honest. I was hoping to see different models as weapons and some skins and stuff. Pretty much, it\'s just weapon effects. Hopefully there will be an update to this mod.

Graves' Dante model has been reskinned into Vergil. Since they are twin brothers, the model is interchangeable between them - indeed, it looks good. The skinning work is well-done, too - the blue robes have some nice highlights/shadows. The vest looks very good as well. Everything seems as accurate as accurate gets. On the downside, there is a little seam on the shoulders, but that was the only flaw I could spot. I also didn't see any NPC/bot support, which must be added if you even consider a version 2.

The author has achieved what he set out to do in the first place, and this mod serves its purpose. Keep in mind that it is only for Singeplayer. Let me repeat, it does NOT work in multiplayer. Except for the sabers. They work in Multiplayer. Enjoy. ~Authuran

CloneWars Mod - Sounds and Effects

cwsoundsfx.zip | 5.3 MB

:S Basically what we have here is a great deal of the sound effects work produced by the Clone Wars mod team that has unfortunately disbanded due to inactivity. We have however been left which quite a large library of new sound effects here which include things like weapons fire, walking sounds, new spawning sounds, new health and shield pickup sounds and more. Third (AKA Bluestormtrooper) explains more about the ill-fated mod and the excellent work that has been released here in his readme. All the sounds that I listened to were good quality recordings and were made by people who obviously new something about the art of [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foley_artist]foley[/url] (the art of making such sound effects) and some of them sound as good as the base JKA sound effects I think! A bonus is that this file also includes some .efx files to actually change the visual effects ingame! It’s unfortunate for any mod to die, especially one that never saw a proper release, but unfortunately that happens. What is good though is that some of this mod team’s hard work has been preserved here for the rest of the community. Since this is not a mod in itself the file does not contain a .pk3, but rather all the individual sound files. Hopefully the people in the community will make good use of these new assets, just remember to properly credit the original authors for their hard work here! Personally I would love to see these sounds taken and made into a proper sound effects mod, I think that would be a worthy use for this work and I’m sure people would enjoy it! So, if you fancy taking such a challenge up, then why not give this file a download? :) ~Nozyspy~

Broly - The Legendary Super Sayajin

broly.zip | 1.31 MB

making a manga themed franchise into a live action film with real actors is just totally wrong… I mean come on, how on earth are [b]real[/b] people supposed to have such gravity defying hair?! Anyway, on with the review! Here we have a scary looking bloke with blue hair who is apparently called Broly. Add an extra L to that and you get Brolly, which is what we often call an umbrella in England! No umbrella is included with this model though, sorry. Ehem, anyway, I don’t really know much about this character, save what I read on Wikipedia; that he seems to be a villain and the Legendary Super-Sayajin. It doesn’t really matter whether or not you know anything about Dragon Ball, you can tell that this is a good quality model and skin. From the videos I managed to find on Youtube, this is pretty accurate to how the character looks in the anime, especially that very pointy face that seems to be typical of most Dragon Ball characters. The textures on the skin fit with the theme of this being an animated character; they are more stylised than realistic. The model also looks great and is of a high quality. This model also has new sounds, which sound pretty scary and from what I know of this character fit pretty well. There are a few things missing which I think need to be added for next time around though, the most obvious one being team support which I think should always be included with a skin. The other thing is bot support, which, whilst not as important as team support is still something I would like to see with a skin/model of this high a quality. Overall though this is a very good model/skin and I look forward to any future projects the author has planned! If you guys are fans of Dragon Ball or just like the look of this mod, then be sure to give it a download! :) [b]New Sounds:[/b] Yes [b]Bot Support:[/b] No [b]Team Support:[/b] No ~Nozyspy~

AdZ's Force Mod

adzforcemod2.zip | 8.63 MB

fresh look to the effects shown when using the force powers, but includes a whole new set of icons for each power which look far better than the default, and far better than the v1 icons. So i'll start with saying that the icons are great, and for them alone, I would keep this mod. Now moving onto the effects themselves: [b]Lightning:[/b] There are not only new effects for the lightning power, but he has also included new sounds. The sound is nice, however i'm not sure if I would say it is better, certainly different though, and quite nice for a change. The lightning effect itself looks great though, and definately and improvement that I liked. [b]Mind Trick:[/b] Basically this power consists of small pink/purple dots flashing above a players head, i'm not sure why a purple colour was chosen, but it does look good, so cant complain about that! [b]Protect:[/b] Ok, the protect effect doesn't seem much different, it basically seems like a thinner and more transparent version of the default, but it also doesnt move around the skin like before, its more of a static effect. I never did like the default, and this new effect is a much more subtle and nicer effect.. much easier on the eyes for an old sod like me. [b]Drain:[/b] Now, for my favourite addition... the drain effect. This new effect is completely unlike the default, its more of a haze of red energy been pulled from the other player, rather than a lightning effect. I absolutely love this new effect, however I would prefer if it was slightly smaller, it covers a large amount of your aim, which might get difficult in the midst of combat, other than that its fantastic. As an addition to the new effects, the grip animation from the V1 version has still been included, but the animation itself has been made to go faster, and as an added bonus to the pack, he has also included a new flame burst / flame thrower sound. All in all, a fantastic force modification here, great work AdZ.. I hope you make a V3, i'll be keeping my eyes open for it, and for any other file you release! I COMMAND THEE ALL TO DOWNLOAD OR I SHALL STEAL YOUR SOULS AND PURGE YOU INTO THE UNDERWORLD... nah not really.. but seriously.. download this... *evil glare* - AmonRa

be nice,) my instincts kicked in: what I was hearing was: "I wasn't trying too hard, but please praise my work regardless." Maybe that sounds a bit harsh, but it's not a very good attitude to have when skinning, or modding in general. That leads to quite a bit of negative backlash from the community. SO! The major thing I noticed immediately what the rather solid colors that are tell-tale mark of MS Paint. The pants, eye-wrap, and hair are pretty much victim to this editing. The rest of the skin seemed to be the result of default texture digging, as I noted the Jedi2 shirt was used here, as were parts of the Jedi1, I believe. At the risk of punching myself in the face, I will simply refer you to the master sticky found here: http://forums.filefront.com/sw-jk3-modding-editing/234876-master-sticky-read-before-posting-contains-tutorials-links-utilities.html As valiant as your attempt was, it fell quite short, and I would definitely sharpen your skinning skills before sending in another public display skin. This one doesn't bode well as a good start. However, MaceCrusherMadunusus, a renowned MB2 mapper, also had a rather rough start in his earlier days. Give it some time and practice, and you too can pown mightily with your skins. Also, the directory begins with SOUND, not SOUNDS. I was wondering for about 5 minutes why your sounds weren't working until I caught that tiny mistake. A shame that threw your total soundset usage out the window, so basically you just tagged on extra useless weight to your file's size, worse since you could have simply used a sounds.cfg to achieve the desired soundset. Insert Quarter and Try Again. You have a bit to learn, but I look forward to seeing what the fruits of your labor will yield.

Mara Jade in Heir to the Empire Jumpsuit

mara_in_jumpsuit.zip | 4.56 MB

pictures I could find it looks very accurate too! The model that has been reskinned here is HapSlash’s Gwethenea model, and personally I think Shadowknight has made an excellent choice here going with this model as it fits the bill just right. Moving onto the texturing job you can see that the author has spent a good deal of time here getting this skin just right. Like I said before, the skin is very accurate, especially of course Mara’s famous flame red hair and green eyes. There are also custom sounds included with the skin, though I am not sure where they are from. Though I suspect that they might be from Dark Forces II: Mysteries of the Sith. There are some things I think should be improved upon though, the main one being that there are no team skins. Team skins as I often say are an important part of a skin, and no skin or skin-pack fels quite complete without them. I definitely think then that some team skins should be added for next time around. I would also like to see a few different versions of Mara too, bundled up into a nice skin-pack. That said though, this skin is excellent both in the choice of model used and the quality of the skin itself. Added to all that we also have a brand new custom hilt; Mara’s own! This is also an excellent piece of work in itself and was contributed to this mod by Khaliban. All in all then, excellent work here, both by Shadowknight for the great new skin and also Khaliban for the new saber model. Combined this makes a must-have mod for all Mara Jade fans! So if you are a fan of Mara, or just like the look of this mod, then give it a download! :) [b]New Sounds:[/b] Yes [b]Bot Support:[/b]Yes [b]Team Support:[/b] No ~Nozyspy~

Galen Marek (Starkiller)

galenmarekv1.zip | 3.7 MB

Using the Jaden model as a base, the creators built off our SP protagonist and shaped him into the protagonist of the much more recent game "The Force Unleashed." Gaze, and behold, but do not become disappointed, for the creators wish to announce that this version is merely a [b]teaser, rather than a full proper release.[/b] As such, you can more than certainly expect a new, more powerful version to compete with DLX's model in the near future, complete with revamped face and new outfit choices, of course. Speaking of which, what outfits are we blessed with? Not much, just the standard "training gear" you often see him in, along with a malevolent Sith Robe of sorts that I never actually beheld before. Quite imposing, indeed =_,=. So, in likeness and appearance, it still has a little ways to go, of course. There are little bits and pieces that the authors are aware need to be fixed which leads me to reiterate the bugs they are aware of: [quote]There are some weighting problems here and there that we hope to fix for future release, face and some other textures aren't finished yet.[/quote] The face is not rigged yet, so expect a cold blank stare for a while until that's fixed =_o there are also a few minor clipping problems with the sith robe version, but this is to be expected. Otherwise, you really can't go too wrong with it. I guess the only problems I have with this model lie within the sound department. Most of them are Jaden, and there's only one sound. This wouldn't really irk me normally, considering the status of the game, but did ya really have to use that taunt over and over again in the sound directory, including in the victory sector? I mean c'mon... I guess the only thing I should probably mention before wrapping this up would be that there's no new extras besides the sounds, but here's hoping the authors will =_= fix that as well. My piece is said, my mouth becomes useless. Let your eyes glaze over once more, and then let your hand do your mind's bidding...

even knowing it. Why? Well, the model choice, but ignoring that, let's take a look at the skin. Wow, the skin actually looks pretty impressive until you get to the face. The clothes look like they have enough definition to tell that they are in fact clothes. The metal yoke doesn't look half bad, and just in general, it looks downright well-done. To preface, the author has admitted that he sucked at the face, and honestly, since he admitted it, I'll be generous enough to just say: "The face sucks, but at least he tried." So that's about it. The author included the ever-so-popular reverse hand saber by HOUOU, along with all the extras. A big thumbs up there. If you think you can get over the model's deformities and have fun with it, then by all means be my guest =_o. Bot Support:Aye NPC Support:Aye New Sounds: Aye Team Support:Aye - Averus Retruthan

Serenity - Firefly

serenity_rp.zip | 17.96 MB

roleplaying, not dueling. When I saw this I was excited to see it and when I played it I was even more happy. The map consists of only Serenity, the ship that the heroes in Firefly travel on. Accuracy wise it’s amazing, I felt I was really on it. At first I spawned on the medical bay, the doors to the medical room are noticeable from behind the archway but that’s not really a big deal as all the detail is spot on. The only thing I could complain about is that on every door I seemed to got stuck on, sometimes I even had to crouch to walk through them. But other than that is great it’s got the dinning room, the cockpit, the cargo bay, the engine room, everything is pretty much the same as in the movie and show. One thing, the author says that the bot routes are defined but everytime I tried to add a bot, my game froze. It does have new music taken from the soundtrack of Firefly which adds to this greatly. And new textures as well, overall a very good map. So if you’re a roleplayer and think this map will be good on your server then give it a download, just don’t try to put 16 people inside, it might be a little too cramped in there. :D [i]Ayane Yamazaki[/i]

Sora

sora.zip | 2.96 MB

Shady-D picked up the model and skinned and weighted it for use in Jedi Academy. The skin, while simple, definitely looks like Sora, and while there are a few parts of it I don\'t like (contrast! I can\'t see Sora\'s face unless I\'m 2 inches away from it!) overall it does a good job. The real pitfall of this model is the weighting. I\'m not talking about little tiny issues, either. I\'m talking about arm-breaking weighting flaws. By \"arm breaking\" I mean that during some animations sora looks like he has a complete arm fracture about 3 inches above his elbow - arms don\'t bend that way! Also during several animations portions of Sora\'s torso peek out through his jacket, as if a couple of individual vertices were weighted to the wrong bone. Also the shoulders leave something to be desired, though to be honest that\'s probably because the shoulders don\'t seem to have been modeled with rig deformation in mind. One other deformation error I noticed was with the mouth, but I\'m going to help out with this. I may be bad at a lot of things when it comes to weighting, but weighting mouths I\'ve pretty much gotten down to a science. The easiest way to get proper lip deformation is to weigh the lips .4 to their respective lip bones and .6 to the cranium. Weigh the verts in the middle .6 to the cranium and .2 to the right and left lip bones. Don\'t forget to do the same for the chin, as well! This should keep your model from looking like it had a stroke. Symmetry is the key. For those of you who aren\'t familiar with weighting, don\'t feel bad if I just confused you. Anyway, overall it\'s a good model. It has a few problems, but that won\'t keep fans from enjoying it, and it certainly wouldn\'t keep [i]me[/i] from enjoying it.

Mario Bros.

mariobros.zip | 2.88 MB

So I was excited to see that finally there was a model made of Mario and Luigi! They are a bit big ... y\'know, like, the way Yoda was. But if you just use a mod to scale \'em down a bit, it\'d probably work a little better. Of course they\'re incredibly cartoony ... c\'mon ... it\'s Mario and Luigi! I think they look great. I really only have one complaint. The taunt. The other sounds are great. Especially the deaths. Those are perfect. But the taunt is just not what I expected. What did I expect Mario to say? I have no idea. But I guess the one thing that came to mind was like, y\'know that Mario song? The one that annoys Chrono when Kaoran plays it ... hehe.

Jedi Trainer Species Pack

trainer_species.zip | 5.24 MB

leg varieties. Unlike some similar models, though, there's more difference between each skin in this one than the others than just a few colors, which would probably be nice if anyone wanted this for an RPG server, or something of the sort. I really can't find much to complain about. Like I said, each skin is different, and textured quite well. One thing that bugged me, though, was with one of the torsos, where he seems to be wearing a collar. Maybe that's okay for a female model, but not so much for a guy. Other than that, it's good. I give it a 7/10 /-( Raptor522 )- Note: Yes, I am aware I put this in "Models" instead of "Skins"...my mistake, sorry, I'll do better next time. :)

Episode II and III. There are a variety of different skins included in the pack, most are explained in the readme, however there is a secret skin that should please a few people.. I don\'t want to spoil the surprise… The model is nice, although there is some clipping, that is understandable considering the model is supposed to be small (remember to use JAplus or another modelscaling mod to scale down the model to it\'s appropriate size), that\'s the only real problem that can be picked out with it. There are new sounds and they\'re so cute! Definitely worth a download if you\'re into Role Play, movie making or just kicking some grown up ass!

Escape: Yavin IV

escape.zip | 109.39 MB

models, new cutscenes, animations, etc. All of this is new and it's all done quite well. It was a bit of a challenge for me and I didn't even come close to finishing it (mostly because of a time restraint). If you've been bored with the SP game from Jedi Academy, you might want to check out Escape: Yavin IV. The only things I was disappointed in are significant, but don't make or break this game. The size, of course, is a factor. It's over 100MB in size, so it's going to take a while to download for quite a few of you. Second complaint would be the voice acting. It was all done by one person. And I'm not quite sure why the Queen's voice had a tinny sound to it. That didn't make any sense. Anyway, try getting more people to help voice act for your levels - there are quite a few out there who are willing. Several guys I know out there who'd be interested. And there are fewer women available, but I'm one of them! :D [/shamelessplug] Aaaaaaanyway, if you can tolerate the download - check this total conversion out! ~AmosMagee Ps.

Sunset on Coruscant

rgoerduel2.zip | 9.21 MB

my first glimpse of what I see to be, the best looking duel map ever created for JKA! :D This map is simply stunning to look at from the screenshots I\'ve taken, and with my settings on full it may have been unplayable, but just look at it. The glowing auras of the buildings, the water fountain and the almost unbeliavebly realistic skybox - This map is literally the most realistic duel map you\'re ever likely to see for Jedi Academy. Yes, the map isn\'t as perfect when you want to play it, because our Graphics cards just wont work with 8x Ansiotropic Filtering and 16x Anti-Aliasing, but still this map is simply awe-inspiring. The use of amazing shaders and effects for the fountain and pool in the center of the platform looks unbelievable, and every texture with the exception of the retail ones are photo-realistic.:D The one downfall is the underside areas of the platform, which can spoil an otherwise perfect view, but fortunately, you usually only see this bit when you are dead. The architecture is similarly spot-on. The shining towers and the sleek curving pillars will blow you away with their detail, and although FPS tends to drop lower than a normal duel map, the design and layout, coupled with eveything afformentioned make this (In my opinion) JKA\'s best duel map to date! :) And yes, it does have bot support.

I have no idea what he really looks like, but this model is so non-descript, I kinda hope the character doesn\'t really look like this. The red team skin is the same as the default skin and then there\'s the blue one. There are some new taunts and other sounds included and bot support, though the author claims there are some issues with adding a bot. The biggest issue I came across was the saber. This model holds the saber and swings it much like that old Mandalorian model - remember that? It really bugs me. I would only suggest you download this model so you can offer suggestions for some changes to the author. Otherwise, wait for an update.[/quote] Looks like the author fixed a few things on this model. The eyes aren\'t so dark, and some weighting issues were corrected.

Bobo\'s Jedi Trainer

bobojeditrainer.zip | 2.01 MB

explain in his own words: [quote]This is not a ladder. This is my Merry-Go-round Style Trainer. Designed to be hard, not excessively so, for intermediate to experienced players mainly. Originally this map was a ladder, but that was really annoying. So I made kind of a Round-Robin thing. This latest incarnation (and the first one I\'ve submitted) features two Jedi at a time. They start one a hard level and one an easy. When you kill the easy one a harder one spawns. When you kill the hard one an easier one respawns. And they up and down like that. You could call it a ladder, but I prefer something along the lines of a Merry-Go-Round. This map was designed not to help newbies get better, but to hone the skills of intermediate to advanced players. (This is not to say that newbie shouldn\'t play it, just that they might get frustrated at first.)[/quote] I played this for at least an hour and never survived long enough to know if there\'s an end to the NPCs, lol. As I\'m not the most skilled duelist, especially in JA, I\'m probably the n00b Bobo was talking about. ;) The only thing I would change about this is maybe get more of a variety in the enemies you battle (at least model/skin-wise) and add a briefing at the load screen with some information and hints. Technical Data: Pros: 1. Good solid dueling. 2. The Reborn Acrobat, Fencer, and Force-User skins from JK2 have been ported for use in this mod. Cons: 1. None, except a seemingly infinite supply of minions attempting to wreak havoc on my body. Rating: 8/10 JEDIofONE :mepimp:

Force Mod III Classic Edition v1.5

forcemodiii_1.5.txt | 161 B

the download link only!*** It has been almost an entire year since I reviewed the last version of the famous Force Mod III Classic Edition. That was v1.3A, somewhere along the line we must have missed out on 1.4, but now Venomous^Heart and Pitchest^Heart bring is v1.5, which includes lots of new features! Firstly, I will paste in my previous review, as that covers most of the main features, and then we shall proceed on to the updates! [quote]For those of you unfamiliar with the mod, it is a massive and far reaching project which changes many aspects of gameplay, from saber selection and combat, character classes and some fantastic little features available via the ingame menu, which I will come to later. All you need to do is look at the saber selection menu and the incredible amount of detail which has gone into it, with melee damage charts for the various types of weapons. Add to that new saber colours and a whole new saber selection interface and it makes for an amazing change, though the complicated looking damage tables will not appeal to everyone. Check out the screenies below for an example. There have also been some changes to the force power menu, with several force powers now having a \'level 4\', or turning the force up to 11 you could say. Force jump in particular on power level 4 now allows you to jump huge distances. These level 4 powers obviously cost a large amount of points to purchase however! As for character selection, as in Movie Battles II there is a wide variety of different characters to choose from ranging across several different classes, such as Jedi, Sith, Mercenary, Droid and more, with models and skins made by top notch modders. Now onto the features that I was the most impressed with; take a look at the ingame menu and you will see a variety of new options, one of my favourites being the Music menu, which allows you to choose from a variety of Star Wars music, depending on your mood or what you may be doing; using something more dramatic if you are having a duel for example, or perhaps if you don’t like the music used on a particular map you are on, you can pick from this list something which you would prefer to listen to whilst exploring or playing, or maybe just as a bit of ambience. Other features include a bonus button menu, which allows you to hide or show things like your FPS, the HUD, whether or not you want to render the weapon models, etc. which is great for taking good screenshots. I wish there was a mod like this for base JKA, it would save a load of faffing around using the /cg_draw2d and /cg_drawgun commands all the time to get good screenies! XD Another cool feature which is great for both taking screenshots and adjusting your view ingame is the aptly named Views menu, which lets you adjust things like your field of view, and also rotating the camera around your player using slider bars, another cool feature for taking screenshots, especially of skins, like the bonus button menu, this would actually be a great feature for helping the process of taking screenshots of skins for when I am reviewing them. Rather than having to use the modelview.cfg method, which although it works fine, it would still be nice to have a graphical user interface to change the camera position. Then there’s the Optimization menu, which allows you to either choose from a selection of pre-sets, or adjust settings via slider bars to help you optimize your connection and squeeze better ping, and thus less lag out of the game whilst playing online. These are some absolutely fantastic features, and I would love to see these made into separate mods for base JKA, if they haven’t been already, and if they have, please tell me where to get them! There are of course many more features to discover and much more depth to this mod than I have been able to cover here, but I hoped I have managed to touch on some of the most interesting and unique ones. This mod is definitely worth a download for those of you interested in a fantastic Multiplayer mod with loads of great features and a distinguished history, keep up the good work Venomous^Heart! ~Nozyspy~[/quote] As with last time, there are some great features here that I only wish someone would make as separate mods for Base JKA as well! I particularly liked the saber blades, very crisp and sharp, just like a blade of pure energy should look like, rather than the softer, less dangerous looking base JKA saber blades. The saber trails also looked much better; while not quite movie accurate like the OJP saber trails (some fancy coding/texture magic used there perhaps?) they looked much better than the default smudge that JKA uses! And that was just the default blade style... you can actually pick from various different blade effects, including the styles used in each of the movies along with various colours and even a colour changing blade! I also noticed that there are a huge amount of new models and skins included which really adds some variation to choose from in the different classes and alignments, not to mention some of the unique weapons they can use. I was thrilled to see the inclusion of Exar Kun and especially a [i]proper[/i] Marka Ragnos skin, one that actually has legs, not the \'Sith Spirit\' version as seen in the game! I love to see characters that usually only appear in 2D in comics and pictures made into proper, usable 3D characters, though I think Ragnos could have done with slightly darker red skin, he seems a little pale for a member of the [url=http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Sith_(species)]Sith Species[/url]. Whoever made these skins, please release them for Base JKA too, I would desperately love to review Ragnos and Exar Kun individually! I do have a few grumbles though. I found the lightsaber type and style selection menu to be a little confusing. Apparently most of the Jedi/Sith classes can only use the basic Blue, Yellow and Red forms as already found in Base JKA, but certain classes can put force points in a 4th box in the lightsaber section of the force powers menu, this allows them to use Dual and Staff sabers, as well as the ability to choose between different lightsaber forms, such as Juyo, Shii-Cho and Soresu among others. This may be my fault, down to the fact that I did not have time to properly read through the readme. However I think a help menu in game that explains the basics of how to choose a class and also how to spend force points would be a great help! Overall this is a big and very impressive update to Force Mod III Classic Edition, I would recommend giving it a try if you haven’t already! :) ~Nozyspy~ And now, for a full list of the updates, straight from the author: [quote][u]New Additions and Model Changes[/u] - Juyo Form improved with completely new updated animations. - Two new Saber Styles added; Luminara Unduli (Soresu) and Marka Ragnos (Shii-Cho). - “Wookie Pike” weapon added to staff selection. This weapon will kill an enraged Wookie in a few strikes but makes for an extremely poor melee weapon. - Models re-organized to fit the classes. - Additional models added (see readme folder for credits). - Added the Xtra small (XS) model size and assigned some models to this catagory. - Ancient Sith skin now comes in 2 versions; the standard medium size for Sith saber classes and Extra Tiny (XT) for the Dark Sage class to compete with Jedi Ancient\'s shapeshifting ability. [u]Combat Balances: Adjustments and Improvements[/u] - Melee modifications throughout for improved balance (see ingame Melee charts for reference). - Red/Purple forms given shortened duration JKA base yellow kata. - Blue Lunging kata removed, replaced with fast forward slash attack. - Butterfly kata returned to staff. - Vong defense vs guns increased. [u]Bug Fixes [/u] - NPC\'s fixed with modified models (players using only default fm3 will be crashed by them). - Twin saber flying kata replaced with tornado saber kata due to animation glitch with the first one. - Bots edited to move better, use abilities better and fix bugs. - Vong, Tusken, Noghri and Royal Guards no longer make saber sounds. - Vong, Tusken, Noghri no longer have force adept taunts and have been given bonus martial arts moves. - Royal Guards weapon glitch fixed and now have 2 forms with bonus martial arts, weapon sounds and a force adept taunt. -Movement speed bonuses on melee weapons removed due to glitches. -Power restrict removed from Grievous sabers and electro staff due to glitch.[/quote] ***Please note that due to the size of this file, we could not upload it to JKFiles directly.

Battlestar Galactica Vehicle Pack

bsg_vehicle_pack.zip | 15.14 MB

watched. This pack, however, brings intrigue to me. Pra Viilon, a long time clan leader, has taken advantage of a modeller name Coxxon\'s collection of Battlestar Galactica vehicle models that were \"free game to the public,\" and brought them to JK3 for us. Before I begin, I must say that all of these models are beautifully done, so hats off to Coxxon for his magnificent work there. Now, all of these vehicles share between 3 vehicle weapons, so fortunately for you all, there won\'t be a huge overload of vehicle weapons(since there is indeed a limit.) The weapons are as follows: [b]Viper Gun:[/b] Though the weapon obviously is designated for the Viper, this weapon is carried by every ship in the pack. The effect is actually a very amusing one: It\'s the heavy repeater effects, both in sound and visual effects. Mind you, this means by default you\'d be firing beans, but imagine if you were to, say, download the [file=\"72979\"]DC-15A Rifle,[/file] then you could be firing some kinky blue lasers, which is most potent. However, I found that it was just fine without the modification. [b]Nuke:[/b] Effectively what appears to be a nuclear missle, this weapon uses a modified torpedo effect with an extra kick. The damage is naturally quite potent, and the effect on your screen is quite dramatic...and disorienting. [b]Bomb:[/b] This weapon seems to be unique in that it is the only weapon that is meant to be fired down at the ground, and that it seems to be only in the possession of one ship. Essentially, it\'s what one would think it is, a bomb to drop onto ground forces. Now, with the weapons taken into account, let\'s see what we\'ve got: [b]- Viper MK. I:[/b] AKA, the original Viper from the classic series. This one is a vehicle that the community has seen before, created by [file=\"43473\"]Mars Marshall.[/file] This vessel is the least armed of the bunch, sporting only two Viper Guns, and it looks a bit clunky compared to its newer brethren, but it\'s still a sturdy model, and has the ability to roll left and right, a feat not every JK3 vehicle possesses. [b]Armament: 2x Viper Gun[/b] [b]- Viper MK. II:[/b] A much more cleaner model than its predecessor, marked by its sharper paint job and slimmer, more compact tri-thruster design and the additional armament. Just conserve your shots, as you only get two missles. [b]Armament: 2x Viper Gun, 2x Nuclear Missles[/b] [b]- Viper MK. VII:[/b] Wow O_o...what a farcry from the other Vipers. This thing looks closer to a real life jet than it does a sci-fi vessel. Still has the tri-barrel jets, but a much slimmer, grayer design, but not at the expense of flare, weaponry, or the rolling capability its predecessors had. [b]Armament: 3x Viper Gun, 2x Nuclear Missles[/b] Welp, that covers the Vipers. Now, we move onto the Raiders, a set of vessels in the dominion of the Cylons, whom I remember as being quite clunky and robotic. Very amusing bunch, but the Raiders are still quite awesome: [b]- Old Raider:[/b] This is the classic Raider from the old series, from what I understand. It appears to be the most unique of the bunch in its saucer-like shape, and its ability to hurl bombs. Despite its bulky size, the old raider remains a very nimble unit, and can roll away as well. [b]Armament: 2x Viper Gun, 20x bombs[/b] [b]- New Raider:[/b] Now THIS Raider received a MASSIVE imaginative overhaul. No longer the clunky saucer it once was, this new raider has a sleek new design with a monochrome silver paintjob, sleek curved wings outfitted with Viper Guns, and a cockpit whose design looks to be based off the Cylon\'s helmets. Very snazzeh indeed =_= and it rolls. [b]Armament: 2x Viper Gun, 2x Nuclear Missles[/b] [b]- Heavy Raider:[/b] Wow, this thing is a monster O_o; basically, the cylon cockpit has been grafted onto a large peculiar hull. With it, a massive upgrade in firepower has been bestowed. Though it can\'t roll, it can hover in mid-air, unleashing its barrage of lasers upon both aerial and ground targets with equal prowess. Not a ship whose attention you want to attract. [b]Armament: 6x Viper Gun, 4x Nuclear Missles[/b] That covers the Raiders, and now, we cover my favorite of the vehicles, [b]the Raptor[/b]. Now I have NO idea what the Raptor is associated with, but it\'s basically the answer to the Heavy Raider. There are only two versions, an unarmed and an armed. Now the unarmed is a bit of a misgnomer, as it does have a single Viper Gun for defense, but the armed version has a massive edge. Both can hover, and both are very awesome looking frigates. [b]Armament(Unarmed): 1x Viper Gun (Armed) 2x Viper Gun, 28x Nuclear missles[/b] So, about the map...WAIT, WHAT?!? A MAP?! You bet your ass. Anyone who remembers [file=\"76372\"]Flight School Final[/file] will be glad to know that Pra converted the map to use the Battlestar Galactica Vehicles included in this pack. However, you require the original map pack to play it, though the vehicles included with it are not compulsory, so fear. There y\'have it, kiddies. One massive vehicle pack that earns my most favorable gaze, which I guess in this case would be \"=_,=\" .... .... .... ..... What? - Averus Retruthan

Additionally, he has pitch-corrected the Jaden Male sounds so that they\'re deeper, to immerse yourself in the Chistori experience. Overall, not a bad mod, but I guess the only caveat is that now Jaden has desann sounds, which irked me a bit, but that was to be an expected side effect. You know the drill.

Ashura's E-11

e11_ashuradx.zip | 14.53 MB

wielded in the right hands. It's just a shame that JA downplayed the potency of their guns, as I'd be using this thing all the time, but NUUUUuUUU! We had to has sabers moar, didn't we? >_> So, AshuraDX decided the E-11 that JA gave us was far too lacking in detail. Rightly so, since we had to wait for Hapslash to give us a proper stormtrooper model, so the E-11's lack of detail is not surprising. This overhaul includes both 1st and 3rd person support. The gun is now a sleeker black, with far more detail trying to remain more faithful to the original prop. The scope on the E-11 doesn't look welded on there, and looks like it actually can be interchangeable, which I highly approve of. Speaking of interchangeable parts, perhaps one day we could possibly see variants of the E-11 with extended stock or maybe even the carbine or modified versions, eh? =_,= Just a thought. As it stands, this replacement is very effective looking, and gives this handsome rifle the makeover it deserves. I would certainly love to see more gun mods from ye Ashura, as you certainly have a knack for pumping these things out with pinpoint precision. A fine addition to anyone's base, and comes highly recommended for bandwidth swallowing. - Averus Retruthan

Star Wars Chronicles Duels Pack 1

duels_pack_1.rar | 227.51 MB

Fates' from Episode I and the Duel between Dooku, Anakin, Obi-Wan and finally Yoda from Episode II. For anyone not familiar with the Chronicles Mod you should check out their website, [url=http://www.swchroniclesmod.com]here[/url]. The first thing you see in any Single Player mod, is of course the menu screens and these are rather clever! Available from the 'Start New Game' option are the two duels, but what is clever is that the button for each duel, when moused over, is actually a small video of the duel itself! Not something that is hugely important to the gameplay, but it’s a nice touch nonetheless! First off, let's have a look at: [b]Duel of the Fates.[/b] This is probably one of the most famous bits of any of the Star Wars films, not least because of that amazing 'hairs on the back of your neck' soundtrack by John Williams. Its also just an incredibly choreographed duel and is always enjoyable to watch. Here we get our chance to play as Obi-Wan and duel Darth Maul ourselves. Believe me, this is not easy, it takes skill and perseverance to complete these duels and I died several times on each. Out of the two though I would definitely say that Duel of the Fates is the most difficult, primarily because old Qui-Gon isn't really very helpful. :P That is one of the few issues I found with this mod; Qui-Gon often just stops behind pillars or sometimes just walks around casually while Darth Maul continues attacking you, which makes things rather more difficult. The cutscenes in both duels are fantastic however. They are on par, if not better than the cutscenes made for JKA by Raven and include characters that move their mouths and are lip synched to the speech and full sound from the movies, which adds a really nice level of realism to everything. The camera angles and character movements are also unbelievably similar to the actual shots the film, which is quite an accomplishment considering the limitations of JKA. The Duel of the Fates map is also very impressive and accurate to the film. Along with the excellent skins this rounded this half of the mod off nicely. It really does feel very cinematic! [b]Geonosis Duel[/b] This is of course the duel that was at the end of Episode 2 featuring Count Dooku, Anakin, Obi-Wan and Yoda. You start out as Obi Wan and fight until the scene where Dooku disarms Obi-Wan and Anakin saves him just in time before Dooku cuts poor Obi in half. You then switch over to controlling Anakin and then when Anakin gets his arm chopped off you finally get to play as Yoda! The cutscenes and character changes occur when you get Dooku's health down to a certain amount. Again the cutscenes are fantastic and contain full music and speech from the film along with lip synching characters. The thing I was impressed with most though is the map. It really does have a Geonosis feel and is the best recreation of the Geonosis duel area that I have ever seen. The sky outside especially looked fantastic; somehow the author of the map has been able to make the skybox sort of 'glowy'. There is a screenshot below where you can see what I mean, it's very difficult to describe since it doesn't look quite the same as the glow from a light. In any case I haven't a clue how it was done, although I would very much like to find out! As for bugs on this half of the mod, I only noticed one. It was however most bizarre... Instead of Padme appearing at the end and running into the hangar as she does in the film, it was actually a Stormtrooper. How this happened I have no idea, I also don't know whether this problem was unique to me, e.g. caused by a file conflict, but in any case the Padme model was replaced by a Stormtrooper. Weird, and a little amusing but nothing too serious! Overall; fantastic work here and well worth a download! Keep up the good work guys, I look forward to seeing Duel Pack 2! :D ~Nozyspy~ And now a message from the Chronicles Team: [quote] Star Wars Chronicles is a Jedi Academy Modification that is being developed by the Chronicles Team since August 17th 2007. The idea is creating singleplayer missions that resembles to the six movies of the saga, something that many dreamt and couldn't do so far. We count with a huge number of members that are working to provide you the best quality and pleasure. MovieBattles Team, responsible for creating the famous MovieBattles II modification is supporting us. In this Duel Pack Series we have planned to give the fans a taste of our work. The demo was about missions, this is how the duels will be in the full version. You will get to be Obi-Wan in Duel of The Fates and duel against Darth Maul with the help of Qui-Gon. All scenes are exactly as the original movies from the camera point of view to character animations as much as the engine allows us. It is of great importance to us that you feel like in the movie. Moreover in the Geonosis Duel, you will fight as 3 different characters including the little green guy, Yoda! The lightning effect of the Sith lord was supported by shaders to make it more realistic during cinematic's. The Duel might be hard for you new starters, but keep trying, Count Dooku is just another tinny. Both missions are beautifully scripted and mapped, you will surely want to play more after this experience. We are planning on a second duel pack that will most probably feature Battle Over Coruscant and Emperor's Throne Duel. So keep your heads up for the next update very soon.[/quote]

Star Wars Movie Duels - The Original Trilogy - Demo

mdtotdemov2.exe | 96.31 MB

and TFU. Well, this little mod takes care of that one! Welcome to Movie Duels - The Original Trilogy! Although this is just a demo consisting of a single level, the fight between Obi-Wan and Darth Vader from A New Hope, it's still quite a bit of fun. It's almost as well done as Movie Duels 2, however, I found that some of the animations are a bit weird. For example, when Vader gets knocked over in the last part of the level if you play as him. A big chunk of wall hits him, and he just stands there for a second, as if he is trying to decide whether or not he should fall over from it. I also had a bit of a problem with the fact that when playing as Darth Vader, I was able to pull Obi-Wan into the pit in the hangar in the first part of the fight, killing him with almost no work at all. In the second part, he jumped in himself! I literally hit him twice with my saber during the entire fight. Even so, it's best to keep in mind that this is just a demo. Anyway, I'm definitely looking forward to a full version of this mod. It is worth the download, if you can stand the .exe file format.

mandalorian is actually a woman.. >_> Well, that is exactly what we have here, A female mandalorian pack! I don't think I've ever come across this type of mandalorian pack during my time here. I could be missing it, or just haven't seen one around. Anyways, you'll probably notice that these skins seem familiar. That's because the author re-skinned [url="http://jediknight3.filefront.com/file/Mandalorians;20802"]Mars Marshall's mandalorian Pack[/url], and made them the opposite gender. To start off, one of the major changes you'll notice is how much more thin these skins actually is. As we all know, this is strictly due to the fact that females are naturally thinner than males 95% of the time. I actually liked how thin these skins have become, because it gives a totally new feel to a mandalorian. I'm not sure if there were actual ''female'' mandalorians in the Star Wars Universe. If there was, I definitely skipped over that part. Nevertheless, I noticed the curves of the armor seem a bit [i]default[/i]. Although, it could just be me. As far as improvements go, I would highly recommend giving a bit of ''bulk'' to the body structure, but not to much. Seeing that mandalorians go through a lot of physical training, I doubt even a female would look so scrawny after constant and excessive training. Also, The author definitely picked a great skin tone, as well as a great hair color. The pack consists of skins without the helmet on, as well as with it on. In my honest opinion, I would use the helmet less versions more often than the opposite. It seems that to many people run around with mandalorians and/or Bounty Hunters these days. You don't really see helmet less versions of them as much, so at least you all can use this pack until it gets old just like the rest of the myriad of packs. Anyways, I'll let you, the users, discover the other varieties in this skin pack. Last but not least, we have bugs. Surprisingly, I saw very little bugs in this skin pack. Although, there is one bug that the author mentioned in the readme that's hardly noticeable. The parts of the skins don't line up quite right, which is a minor problem. It can easily be fixed if the author decides to release a V2. Overall, this is a great female specific mandalorian pack. The author did a great job on these skins, and I'm sure the rest of you will enjoy it as much as I did. I hope you decide to release a V2, because I can't wait to see more of these! This is definitely worth a download if you are a fan of mandalorians, or just want a different gender.

Siege - Battle over Coruscant

siege_boc.zip | 69.63 MB

specifically, the battle aboard General Grievous’ ship, the Invisible Hand from the beginning of Revenge of the Sith has been given a pretty good going over by excellent mappers in the past. Orbitus and Hatrus gave us a full space map, with the ability to fly between ships, and Sith J Cull made one of his excellent movie map recreations of the interior of the invisible Hand. But, whilst I love both of those maps, I really must admit that this map surpasses both of those in terms of graphical beauty and technical excellence. Afterall, we all know Darth Norman is a perfectionist, and this map has been in production a long time indeed, so expect a bug free, wonderfully polished map here. Whilst you might not be able to fly between ships in space as in Orb’s and Hatrus’ map, or see as many different areas as you could in Sith J’s map, this map has one great strength that the other two didn’t have, and indeed a strength that in fact most maps don’t have. Included in this pack is both an FFA and a [b]Siege version![/b] New Siege maps are pretty rare, so its really great to have such a fantastic quality movie map available as both an FFA and a Siege map! But wait, it gets better…also included are two duel maps, one featuring the observation deck and the other featuring the hangar area, both of which are well sized and make good areas to duel. For ease of reading, I am going to split this review up into different sections, covering the graphics gameplay, quality etc. First up: [b]Gameplay[/b] This is a pretty big map, which contains plenty of areas to do battle in. The general layout fits perfectly with both the FFA and Siege gametype’s, which is not an easy thing to do. Generally I would have expected the Siege and FFA versions to be structurally different, but in this case both of the maps are the same. Apart from the entities and scripting needed for the different gametype’s of course. There are plenty of corridors to wind your way around, and they take on somewhat of a labyrinthine nature due to the fact that they are very similar in appearance. So whilst you cannot actually get lost (that map isn’t [i]that[/i] big!), seeing so many corridors looking the same can lead to confusion. This is a good thing though, as it adds an interesting extra level of gameplay, especially to the Siege side of things. As far as siege objectives go, there are only two for each team. You either have to defend / capture the hanger and then once that objective has been passed, you will need to defend / capture the bridge and free Palpatine, which makes this nicely authentic to the movie. [b]Grapics and Sound[/b] Well, what can I say?! Darth Norman has made some spectacular looking maps in the past, but this one edges the bar up even higher! Look outside of the hangar shields and you can see a great looking skybox filled with ships. There are plenty of laser blasts flying around too adding to the chaos of battle. Get close enough to the shields and you will also here the cool sound effects of firing turbo laser cannons and ships engines. The thing that most impressed me about the hanger though, after the incredible level of detail, was the glowing shine on the hangar floor. Those who are familiar with mapping will know about glow shaders and ‘env’ or shiny shaders. However I have seen very, very few maps in which a shiny ‘env’ shader also glows! The skybox, combined with the shader makes it look as though the rays of the sun bursting over Coruscant’s horizon is reflecting off of the hangar floor, a very nice effect indeed. The rest of the map is of similar quality, with high levels of 3D detailing, rather than just relying on textures to make surfaces look three-dimensional. The observation deck and the Bridge were also fantastic. As soon as you step through the door if feels like you have just walked straight into the film! The sound effects for the doors, elevators and such all sound authentic as well, and when combined with the maps lighting, detail and excellent textures, it creates an immersive experience. [b]Quality[/b] As I am sure anyone reading this can tell, I have already spent most of the review praising Norman’s excellent mapping skills, and its never a good thing to give nothing but praise with no constructive criticism at all… But I am genuinely having trouble finding things wrong with this map. The quality is just as good as all of Norman’s other maps, which means this map is about as perfect and polished as you can get. There were a couple of minor things that caught my attention, though when I say minor, I really do mean [i]minor[/i]. I will come to those next… [b]Improvements[/b] Whilst I hold that it is impossible for there ever to be a perfect map, I must admit that Darth Norman doesn’t give me much to work with when it comes to suggesting improvements! :P There were a few very minor things I noticed, which I think could have been a little better. One was a floor texture in the bridge area, which seemed rather low resolution when compared to the rest of the high-res quality textures. Nothing too big, but mappers notice these things you see! Another thing was the skybox, which was also quite grainy when it came to the ships, although that is a side effect of the process of making these kind of skybox’s and would be very difficult to correct. Lastly, the ‘glowing shine’ shader on the floor of the hangar gets clipped off at an angle when viewed from high up from certain angles. Again though this is minor and most people will never notice. [b]Conclusion[/b] Well, this has been quite a long review, but it’s been good to stretch my fingers again, both typing and playing! ;) This is an incredible map, and the fact that you can play it in both the Siege and FFA gametype’s makes it even better. I most definitely recommend a download for this map. In fact…you would be crazy not to download it! :P Go on guys…you know you want to! ;) [b]***NOTE*** Norman asked me to mention this in the review, although it is actually in the readme too: [quote]Feel free to make a replacement pack that includes new models for an authentic siege experience. You are allowed to change the classes as well. Send that pack to me (darthnorman@gmx.de) or load it up and just send me the link. The best pack will be hosted it on my site together with this map.[/quote] So guys, you also have a challenge here; Darth Norman would like to see a pack made that replaces the player models and siege classes with ones that are more similar to those we saw in the movie, adding to the authentic movie like feeling. If your up to the challenge, why not give it a go? You could have your pack featured on Darth Norman’s site![/b] [b]New Textures:[/b] Yes [b]New Sounds:[/b] Yes [b]New Music:[/b] Yes [b]Bot Routes:[/b] Yes [b]Game Types:[/b] FFA, Siege, Duel, Power Duel ~Nozyspy~

Gurren Lagann

concept. So, apparently this model is based off a series known as Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. Never heard of it? Don't fear, I haven't either ._.; but from what I've gathered, it scares Averus greatly. Averus loves giant robots, but this one scares him greatly. WHY ON EARTH DOES IT HAVE A GIANT FACE IN THE TORSO WITH SUNGLASSES?! T_T AAGH.....Lord, I give up. Anyway, I looked up comparison shots(after having to skim through a bunch of suggestive shots of some girl ⌐_⌐) and it actually hits pretty well on the mark. It looks just like that hideously grotesque aberration, and not only that, but it has SPECIES CUSTOMIZATION! Oh yes, that's right. This thing has VERSIONS. You have the option of removing those freakish shades, adding DRILL SPIKES to your body, and adding a strange winged jetpack of sorts(also complete with drills.) BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE MADNESS! Not only do you get a model, but you get practically ALL the fixin's, AND two new weapons: A giant drill(NO WAY?!,) and SHADES! Hang on a sec... [b]-=Averus repeated facedesks=-[/b] Okay, that feels better. Anyway, this package is pretty grand tribute to this....lovely and outright strange (even for my standards,) machine. It's just sad there was no sounds to complete the ensemble....then again, do I REALLY want sounds? Would my sanity be better preserved without them? I don't know, but this pack afears me. If you actually DIG this series, or if you want a one way ticket to drive Averus crazy, submit bandwidth promptly.

Leviathan Bridge Duel & Revans Flagship Duel *BONUS*

mace_leviathan_revan_duel.zip | 19.01 MB

bring a location from KotOR into our very own Jedi Academy. And what Mace brings us here, is not one, but two maps! Both are very similar, however, there is a big difference in what they portray. One is the bridge of the Leviathan where you face Saul Karath, and the other is the bridge of Darth Revan’s flagship, where Bastila and her gang face Revan. The main difference here is the skybox, which in both cases looks fantastic. The skybox from Revan’s flagship is my personal favourite, Mace has done a fantastic job recreating exactly the same kind of look that you actually see in the cut-scenes in KotOR, including Darth Malak’s ship floating menacingly nearby. Now lets move onto the main body of the map. These maps are available ingame for FFA, Duel and Power Duel. The maps are an excellent size for a good duel, since there is plenty of space for running and jumping, and also a couple of bottomless pits. ;) They are also comfortably sized for a small to medium sized FFA. As for the architecture…well all I can say is they are as close as I think it is possible to get to a KotOR level here in JKA. They have all the features you remember, the distinctive lights on and around the floor (the big blue Star Forge symbol being my favourite) and everything is to the correct scale. A nice little touch here is breakable windows. If you choose to break them, you then get sucked out into space! After a few moments a force field then pops up to prevent anyone else taking an unscheduled space walk! A very interesting feature I am sure people will use to good effect in their duels and FFA matches… ;) One feature I also especially liked was the bump mapping-esqe effect on the pipes along the ceiling, a very nice touch there! The only thing I really think could be changed with these maps… is to add in the rest of the ship! I think that would be fantastic to explore the whole thing. These maps are great for a duel or a small to medium FFA, but we need more, more secrets, more places to explore! :D All in all then an excellent couple of maps here. A must have for fans of Knights of the Old Republic. So if you guys like the look of these maps, then give em’ a download, you wont be disappointed!

Sasuke Katana

katana_sasukev2.zip | 210.46 KB

low-detail weapon model, basic in construction and just as basic in the texture detailing. That\'s not to say it\'s bad, but aside from the shadowing on the blade I can see no texture detail at all. Shape-wise the model is spot on to the general design of a straight-edged Japanese weapon, not extravagant but at the same time functional. I\'d guess there\'s accuracy to the source material judging from the usage of the term \"manga\" in describing the source, and I know how much the Japanese love their black-and-white themes for these things. Simple but effective sword model. A Glock isn\'t pretty either, but it kills - and so does this sword. One more for the arsenal, eh? ~ Kouen

Iron Man

iron_man.zip | 3.34 MB

majority of us tend to recognize as Iron Man's current form. The skin is relatively good in the front, but honestly, I think the back is rather incorrect. There's too much red schema, and the pictures I am viewing have a transition into a yellow pattern for a brief period. In the back, it's just pretty much all red, and feels off. Combine this with the slightly awkward build of the shadowtrooper model, and the skin's execution drops slightly, due to poor choice. Silver Centurion (Iron Man red team) - Same deal as above, but silver instead of gold pattern Stealth Iron Man - This one seems to have poorer quality than the others. The black lines seem to strike out unpleasantly, and it seems to lack a shaded feel. Also, how Iron Man would sneak around in a heavy metal suit is beyond me ⌐_⌐ War Machine - The same applications of the first Iron Man, but with black and gray scheme. Iron Man Mark 1 - Ah yes, the rather clunky and awkward looking first version of Iron Man. This frankenstein machine was based off the same model apparently, but given a bulge shader that threw me off completely O_o; I couldn't tell what model it was for a second, until I checked the .skin. Suffice to say, the grayfox model would have been the model I would have originally went with to base this skin pack on. Suffice to say, the head and chest light fall prey to problems. The head just doesn't look right, and the chest light texture bends away partially when you look up. All in all, this skin pack was rather ._. so-so, I suppose. Good effort, but could be better =_=. I would suggest reviewing the paint scheme of the default and going from there. Otherwise, death. Bot Support:Aye NPC Support:Nay New Sounds: Aye Team Support:Aye - Averus Retruthan

Desert Eagle .50 Cal

desert_eagle_blaster_pistol.zip | 5.44 MB

annoying weapons to behold, in my opinion.(CSS has swayed my opinion to the P228 =_,=) Well, there are two versions within this pack, and this time, they\'re quite different, rather than just a skinjob. The standard nickel-plated deagle is decent, the model being of JaKaL\'s usual quality and the standard photosourced quality. My only discrepency would probably be the hand\'s ill texturing, but that is easily overlooked. The Tactical version has a decent model, and is actually pretty cool. One problem though: The FIRST PERSON IS TINY O_O+ The gun looks like a tiny little wuss, and we all know that Deagles generally ain\'t that small =_=. All in all, if I were anyone interested, I would say that the standard version overrules the tactical in terms of accuracy, but the tactical looks cooler, by a long shot.

General Windu

general_windu.zip | 5.85 MB

Mace Windus. Hwargh, is it a large load of them. To cut time, I simply suggest you take a look at the readme to see all the skin variants. Accuracy-wise, in terms of the face, it looks VAGUELY like Mace Windu. To ensure my assumptions were correct, I found the picture that Spanki copied off of with the real thing. Looking at them side by side, the facial structure actually looks surprisingly similar in the nose, ears, and head. However, Samuel L. Jackson\'s eyes are a bit farther apart and less glistening (too much shine in the eyes) than the skin\'s, so the accuracy is harmed slightly, but only because of the model. That, and maybe the skin tone\'s a bit off, but all in all, it\'s a pretty good shot. On everywhere else, the model and skin\'s about as dead on as they could be. All in all, a very nice skinpack. I may consider keeping it myself, if not for at least the sith variant =_,=. Otherwise, I\'d advise you to go and acquire some bandwidth to round up this skinpack, as you will probably enjoy it highly =_=.

shame, and this DC-15A is no lesser a model. I\'m sure a lot of you remember this gun, either from the Battlefront series or Republic Commando. It\'s quite an accurate replica, and we should all feel lucky to have it, as it was originally made for Movie Battles, but has been graciously converted for use with baseJKA. It replaces the repeater, and comes with its own icons so you will actually see this weapon when you are changing guns. It also has some custom sounds and, if that wasn\'t enough, the strings have also been altered to reflect the change of weapon. Ideally you shouldn\'t seen \"repeater\" pop up anywhere in multiplayer! This is definitely a gun worth picking up for those that enjoy new additions, especially Star Wars related additions. Personally I think it\'s loads more interesting than the default repeater and is a great escape from the norm! Give it a download now. ~Inyri

Darth Vader Alternate

should be. So what's new with it? Well, take sometextures off of Basel Kran's Vader, put em on HS's Anakin, and add in sounds from Neomarz's Vader. Then, remove Anakin's hair, and burn his head a bit. The end result will be this suprisingly well-done reskin. The only problem I really spotted was that the skin behind the ears is black, which it shouldn't be, that and a line going down the back of the head from where the texture doesn't line up... Included also is NPC and Bot support, as well as the Ep. 3 saber that was included with the HS Anakin model. Anyway, good job, Marden, but I'd like to see some more changes next time. :p

The Legendary Goku

legendary_goku.zip | 6.41 MB

skin should have in order to succeed, when based off a non-original character which in this case, dare I say, is quite well known. Number one: The skin and model should actually look like the person who is on show, and that especially includes the facial texture. Number two: The model deforms correctly and can be selected from the menu. If a file has fulfilled these two criteria, I don't really care how many polies the model has - (hey, my PC can handle it. ;) ) unless of course it’s ridiculously high or ridiculously low. And, of course, when the model by chance also happened to be from one of my personal favorite anime shows, well, then, how lucky is that? ;) I think everybody here will recognize Goku from the images, at least those who have seen Dragonball Z on television. As I mentioned above, that’s a great sign. The textures aren't photo-realistic though, and perhaps are even a little low-res. But it still manages to work with this character because of its style. It's anime, where high-res textures aren't always key. And whilst some may disagree about the hair, I rather like it. It's modeled well on all three of this models forms (That's normal Goku, and Goku in Super Saiyan 1 and 3 transformations.) and I personally think that the almost flat-shades here are perfectly adequate. Now, I didn't notice any deformation bugs when testing, however the readme does mention that some exist, so that may be a factor to consider when downloading. I have a feeling that's probably only relevant in SP mode, which is supported by this pack, but I didn't test because...well, the JA storyline makes me want to hurt things. ;) The sounds were my only main concern - far too loud, and they're all practically identical, but at least they weren't Kyle. I also really liked the facial textures. There was a nagging feeling that they didn't look quite right, but when you wont see the character's face for most of the time when playing, a small personal nag shouldn't be very problematic, and if nothing else, this model is definitely the best Goku I've seen on this site, with the last version of Goku I saw being a rather crude reskin of the cloud model. So I do recommend this for Dragonball Z fans, and even if you're not a fan, you may still find this appealing. :D New Sounds: Yes Team Support: No Bot Support: No ~Szico VII~

Cloud City

cloudcity.zip | 34.97 MB

find a fair few places of recognition when you explore around; I think the most noticeable area for me was that dining room where Han has his little spat with Vader, but there are also the classic landing pads and curved corridors. However, this is definitely a role-playing map, as the layout doesn’t really allow for a proper-FFA - it has too many corridors going off in all different directions, and you have to traverse a fairly long distance to get between areas. On the theme of shadowing, I think I’ll talk about the lighting next. On the whole it was fairly consistent, and most areas had reasonable sources, even though in places light was coming from nowhere, and for the outside sections the sky light was far too orangey. I think the main problem here though, is that it looks as though the author has reduced his ‘lightmapscale’ or ‘gridsize’ settings when compiling the map, which has resulted in rather jagged shadowing, and a general lack of definition from specific sources. There’s also, the horrible bespin sky, but fortunately the custom one here isn’t quite as horrible as the default one that Raven used in their original map. The buildings in it actually look rather nice, and the shadowing on them is also of a nice definition compared with the map itself :) Other extras included some JK2 model conversions, such as the Lando statue, which was particularly fitting. And also some not-so-fitting things, such as the logos advertising LDJ's site/workgroup. This map does perform extremely well in the architectural section though, with plenty of nice brush detailing, curves, and features of interest, combined with some nice moving entities and tidbits, such as the opening armoury :) There were a few areas where the quality dropped a little however, and the chandelier model-things had such an awful texture on them, which spoiled the areas in which they were located somewhat. There were also some floating objects between the upper and lower walkways outside, and at the door to the Falcon (Which, you can’t go in by the way – “Boo, Hiss! ;) ) And, there’s also a rather unfortunate bug too – when on the high walkway looking down to the lower one, if you turn around and jump off the other side, you can land on the invisible floor and walk around the underside of the map. The duel arena was nice though – I won’t comment on the amusement of the announcer voice in case it was recorded by who I think might have recorded it ;) – but the idea works well and the engineering was good….until it broke and the retracting pieces went out of sync… ;) The lifts were also very classy – A bit more lighting on the walls might have been in order when they were moving though, I couldn’t tell they were moving at first. It’s cloud city, how can you not enjoy it? The map isn’t a real gameplay fest though, and to my utmost horror, no bot support was included, yet for Nostalgia value and simply for creating the Star-Wars universe feel, you should at least check it out.

one map, and consequently, it doesn't flow very well - each area doesn't merge with the next, almost seeming random at times. There's also the problem with the framerate. Whilst some areas are okay, a great portion of the main fife areas have a framerate that is less than brilliant. This could be solved with a more solid design and linkage between areas, using structural brushes and than areaportalling off each area. The lighting is for the most part, very nice - sometimes it can be a bit vivid, but most things have a source and the lighting is appropriate for the scenario. There are exceptions however - some corridors are far too bright and the outside sections are far far too dark. The patchwork in this map comes in sporadic sections of excellence - the biological-looking room being an example. That room is creepy, I swear, so I didn't like getting locked in there too much. Creepy, but very well-made. The rest of the map also shows better than average design work, with models and brushwork combining to create some nice ambience. There were parts I didn't like though - many of the doors and switches were silent, causing confusion as to whether they had been activated or not, and whilst the author attempted a portal sky, the terrain just looks far too fake - the texture repetition on them really lets it down, despite the nice clouds he's added into it. The music also has its up and down points - the beginning is nice, but then it degenerates into a soulless rhythm. The many clan logos and star wars pictures posted around the place also spoil the setting, pulling you out of the otherwise believable world that ZidZabre has created here. There is also a small bug created by the sky portal in one area, but fortunately this is the only area it appears to be affecting - whereby giant black 'curtains' appear across the corridor. There's a lot more I could say about each and every area of this map, but it would simply take far too long, and if you like the look of it it's best if you simply try it yourself. I enjoyed exploring it, both through beta and this final stage, and whilst I am disappointed the author didn't fix some of the errors I pointed out to him at that time, he should be proud of what he's managed to create here. Except for the fact that he didn't include botroutes. Bad Zidzabre! *slap* ;) New Textures: Yes New Sounds: Yes Bot Support: No ~Szico VII~

Mountain Temple

mountain_temple.zip | 15.79 MB

the word. The temple itself is very reminiscent of the Pantheon, right down to the open dome with the small circle of light playing across the inside of the centralized dome. Okay, can you tell Greek history and mythology was one of my favorite subjects in school? Enough of Greek history, though. I don't want to bore you all to tears. So let's take a look at the isolated aspects of the map. The map itself is a floating island, so to speak, surrounded by a mountainous skybox which I thought was just beautiful. The texturing here is excellent, as is the placement of little "extras", such as the short broken "walls" placed strategically throughout the map, behind which is a weapon of one kind of another. These make for good places to pick up a gun and snipe off your opponents, while crouching behind the fallen bricks to avoid an early demise. On one side of the map is a pair of bridges which lead to an underground walkway and stairwell. I found it to be especially good because, while the stairwell itself was bland (it's underground, though, so bland and undecorated is to be expected) the lighting actually came from a source, and was well-done. The lighting, however, brings in a decidedly [i]non[/i]-Greek element to this map, as most of the lighting in this map seems to come from crystals which are either mounted on the wall, or in case of the temple itself mounted onto statues. So on to the temple itself. The design is simple on the inside. It consists of a central chamber with several statues in the "corners" - there are no corners because it is a round chamber, however the placement of the statues, as well as some of the surrounding pillars, gives the illusion of corners, which I find incredibly interesting. The "lights" in the temple give it a blue glow, giving it an aura of mystery, somewhat like that which surrounds the Greek pagan mythology. The arches around the central chamber give it a feel of genuine architecture, though I should note that such arches are not a feature of [i]Greek[/i] architecture, but are a feature of [i]Roman[/i] architecture. Anyway, I feel like I've written an essay for my old humanities course, so I'm going to stop here and let you experience the map for yourself. If you enjoy a well-made map, or like I am a Greek or Roman fan, definitely check it out. Everything from the texturing to the music will really give you a feel for the style the map was created in.

JA Enhanced Graphics

pretty though :) Basically, this mod takes almost everything in the game which is remotely natural looking (and even some player models) and gives them a super dynamic glow. You'll need a vid card which supports this function to use the mod, and you better have eyes which can take a lot of strain! I guess whilst some things look nicer with a glow, giving my stormtrooper SP model a big glow doesn't really work - and seeing glowing rock faces and grass doesn't really fit the bill either. Still, it is interesting to see how the game looks with the shader modifications, and if you like glows in general you'll love this :) ~Szico VII~

Battle Over Coruscant

ep3_battle_over_coruscant.zip | 34.43 MB

fighting, as I quickly realised when my JA game came up with the max vehicles error, and this was with NO extra vehicles in my base folder. So yeah, before you even think about downloading this you'll need to get the 99 Vehicles Fix which can be found HERE or use a mod which does the same thing, e.g JA+ You do get a large sense of scale when playing in the open space area, and although it isn't quite what is in the movie, it's still fairly fun to play online, provided you have some skill flying the space vehicles and can shoot other people down. The FPS was a little iffy, it did drop a little low sometimes, but generally its playable and I didn't encounter too many problems in this respect. The design of the level, is also very interesting as well - You start in a small room with three teleports leading to different hangers, and then you get a ship and go kill somebody ;) Can't say I like those teleporters, not too obvious what they are, look more like infrared beams to me, but I'll let that slide for now :) I guess my favourite ship was the droid control ship, as it is very similar to the one in the movies - pity it's only the hangers you can go into ;) Oh, however I thought the shields over the hangers were there to protect the ships from laser-fire? As it turns out you can still shoot ships through them, which kinda defeats the point but meh. Also, If you accidentally jump ship whilst flying, you'll find yourself in an eternal loop, teleporting from the bottom of the arena to the top, with no way out that I could find without cheats being on. So don't jump ship ;) Oh, there's also a few console errors when you first load the map but they wont affect gameplay. Overall it's a very daring map with a huge scope for atmosphere. I did enjoy the music used whilst gunning down my enemy, but for me a whole map geared around vehicle fighting isn't what I look for. Yes, there are fighting areas but they aren't particularly huge and you need a LOT of people to fill the map up. I think many of you will have fun with this map, especially with the new vehicles included (Theres 12!) But if you're not a pilot I'd give this a miss.

did. Admit it, it’s a bit disappointing when Raven just decides to not implement a C3PO into JKA. However, the model was boned and weighted, and now skinned. It looks great! The model is VERY detailed, down to the wires in the shoulder blades. It has a few dents and rusts spots to make it look all the more realistic. In addition, the model also has team support. Red team has a rusted version of our favorite little droid, and blue team gets a silver version. The default is the normal gold one, which also turned out quite nicely. The addition of team support is usually enough to make a skin or model worth it, but wait, there’s more! Macman has also fixed a missing leg glitch in his original! No longer do we need to watch a suffering C3PO limping along with one leg. ;) The skin ALSO comes with bot support. That’s right folks, you can pulverize the poor little thing as much as you want, and it can’t do anything about it! ;) This is a nice little extra for the 56kers that still want to get the full star wars experience without connecting to a server. But that’s not all! Macman ALSO provided us with some nice extra sounds. The small little touch of an “oh don’t you get technical with me,” or an “oh thank goodness I’m alright,” seems to be more than enough to add to the entertainment, and make it really feel like C3PO. Trust me guys, if you want a ‘3PO model, this is the one to get. Nice job, Macman! Team Skins: Yes! Bot Support: Yes! New Sounds: YES! ~Wassup1444465

HapSlash has also kindly included a new E-11 blaster which again adds a few new subtle changes and improves the appearance of the blaster.

Matrix Reloaded

matrixv3.zip | 33.34 MB

so much to choose from. I might as well begin with the main FFA maps, which come in day, and nightime versions. The main area has had a huge work overhaul, and isn't quite the same as usual. There's still the basketball court, middle section e.t.c, but it's seems a little smaller, possibly because the floor textures are bigger then they were before. ;) If this is so, how is the filesize bigger? Well, here's why. There's a whole host of new arenas, textures and fun duel areas to keep your interest, and there's even a bouncy castle now! I spent over half an hour bouncing around there and looking like a prat :) Anyway, more on that later. The second reason for the larger filesize is that Nathan has included a new piece of music (as well as the Burlybrawl.mp3) which happens to be my favourite Matrix music of all time :D Just listen to it at around 1:00min. FANTASTIC :) (It's the chateaux fighting music.) Now then, back to the map. There are some new areas, and some old ones have gone. This may cause unrest for those who enjoyed these areas, and I hope I won't detract from anyone's expreience. The sniper areas are still intact, for which I'm very happy, although Nathan has decided not to include the flat areas in his interests of keeping high FPS throughout the whole map, which I might add he has done spectacularly well :) I averaged over 100fps throughout the whole map! And i still averaged over 35fps with 4x Anti-Aliasing on :) No kidding! So, although the flats are gone, servers wont be getting any lag problems with this map. Now, don't get upset because they're gone, be happy, because the new and improved areas make up for this loss very well. The skating rink looks neater than ever (Love the blue beams) and the fans in there weren't just added to fill space, you can tell each area has been really well thought out. As I mentioned before, there's also a bouncy castle area (which is great fun) and also a raceway which stretches around the top of the main arena, and theres a short one in the car park as well. So, that brings me onto the car park area. Now this is probably the area which has changed the most from the V2. For a start, the textures in here are a HUGE improvement over the v2, and this makes the whole arena that much more creative. Secondly, the road has been tweaked and altered into a 3-storey ...thingy. ;) Which looks very good. The roof area is still intact, and the electric room is more detailed. What's next? Ah yes, the secret room. This area of the map looks nicely made, with a huge stereo system and a DJ set. Pity most of its textures were missing :( Not to worry, its a hidden room, so I doubt many people will use it :) The other areas, which many will remember from the V1 and v2 are the Chateaux, the Teahouse and the 'Coded' Teahouse. The teahouse is very well designed, and realistic. It's probably the best one-on-one duel area in the map, so I spent lots of time looking at all the cool architecture e.t.c. Then I moved onto the 'Coded' version. The first thing I noticed was that the scrolling matrix code looks much, MUCH neater and flows together with each other in a much improved way. Plus, it looks especially cool with Dynamic Glow on :) The final area I found was the Chateaux. It has come a long way from the v1, although not much has changed here from the V2 version. Good job :) Finally, the Architects room. The textures in here are a little misaligned, but I can't see them being any better. ( Being a mapper myselft and knowing how frustrating curves can be;) ) Theres still the good old chair and 2 doors to choose from. This room is a good duel area, although its fun to see how many people you can cram in there :) That's about all I have to say for the day version. Next, the NIGHT version ! Well, it's basically the same map, except at night-time :) The most noticable difference, aside from it having a nicer sky and darker lighting, is the windows in the main area. They now glow from within, casting lovely shadows all over the arena. My one downer was that the colour is a little too contrasted for my liking, but its still a lovely effect. Oh wait, I missed an area! The corridors! They are again, much improved, and look better. You can also tell which doors teleport and which ones dont because some pulsate and some dont. Anyway, back on track. What else is different in the night version.. well, that's actually about it. There's no special arenas in it, but it doesnt need em. I just like the change in atmosphere :) Finally, there is now a clever map in the levelshot, showing you where all the arenas are, so if you found yourself getting lost in the V2, this should make life easier for you :D I personally think this is a much better idea than having 2 maps, one with, and one without signs (like the V2) because it would make the filesize way too large. I really can't recommend this download enough, it may be a bit on the large side, but it's well worth it :) :) The other 7 maps are duel maps, ecah one in a certain part of the main map. They're basically the same areas found in the main ffa maps, except with the rest closed off. And don't worry, they also come in day and night variations :D 10/10 Perfect work. :) New Textures: Yes New Music: Yes Bot Support : Yes ~Szico VII~

Korriban Holdout

korriban_holdout.zip | 4.94 MB

themed maps, probably because the texture set is well defined and has plenty of textures to choose from, and the architecture is fairly simple yet looks cool and you can get a nice eerie Sith atmosphere with the careful use of light and sound/music. While I don’t think the music for this map fits particularly well (its the MP main menu music) the author has done a good job with the sharp and angular Korriban themed architecture, which has improved nicely since his last Korriban themed duel map. Being an FFA map there is also quite a lot to explore here with the winding passageways and sets of stairs leading here and there giving the impression of a hive. I especially liked the cracked wall, which can be destroyed to reach the chamber beyond, though I was a little disappointed to find that I could have just walked into the chamber from the other side if I had just gone around the corner! Cracked and broken walls like that are best used to point the way to a secret area rather than an easily accessible one, but it was a fun little feature nonetheless! There are a few features which don’t fit with the Korriban theme however, one of these is the trees in the courtyard, Korriban is a volcanic desert wasteland, and as far as I know doesn’t have any trees. There is also a pool of water under a glass section in the floor in one of the rooms, to be honest I think any Sith Lord living here would much prefer lava instead! Lastly the statues with the blue crystals are Jedi styles statues and again the blue theme doesn’t really fit Korriban/Sith architecture which works much better with reds and yellows for the lighting. Overall though this map fits the Korriban theme very nicely and has some nice architectural features, though there are a few bugs that need squashing. One being in the porch entrance to the courtyard, if you look up though the skylight you can see the edges of the brushes which face the top of the porch entrance, since the backs are invisible, but the sides are textured! One other one is in the topmost room the cylindrical patch 'ring' which is meant to be the edge of the circular skylight is invisible, all you need to do though is go into GTK Radiant and go to curve → matrix → invert to make sure the textured face is the right way round! Apart from those and a few other very small niggled this is an excellent FFA map and TK-962's skills continue to improve at an impressive rate! I’m sure we will see more cool maps from him in the future! :) [b]Bot Support:[/b] Yes [b]New Textures:[/b] Yes [b]New Sounds:[/b] No [b]New Music:[/b] No [b]Game Types:[/b] FFA, TFFA ~Nozyspy~

FlufMod 0.9.5 Beta

flufmod_install.zip | 73.32 MB

variety of custom player models and skins for [i]both[/i] multiplayer and singleplayer! First of all, lets have a look at the changes to the singleplayer side of the game. [b]Singleplayer[/b] First off it is worth noting that this mod adds a huge number of excellent custom player models and skins made by a variety of authors, for you to choose from when you start a new game. Not only that but there are also customization menu options for many of these, allowing you to refine you character even further. If you want to play as a Shadowtrooper with blue, red and black armour, then you can! ;) If you want more detailed information, then be sure to check out the readme. There is also a cool little robe toggle thing, which allows you to put on or take off your outer robes on the fly, should you decide that you would rather use your robe with the hood up for a bit of sneaking around, or maybe take it off completely when battling a bunch of Cultists. This feature is available for both SP and MP. Next up we have a revamped force points system and some adjusted force powers. The author has included two very detailed though rather long, readme\'s which outline the many changes, so rather than trying to describe them myself, I may as well let the author do it: [quote] ================================= - SinglePlayer Force Point System ================================= At the moment it is quite a HACK, but it works, and that\'s the point. Through the use of the menu system and external CVARS, I created a \"different\" (far be it for me to claim \"better\") system for the distribution of forcepoints. -Force Sense I find that the Force Sense ability is supposedly innate to what a Jedi is. \"Seeing things before they happen giving them god-like reflexes\". If it were up to me, i would code in force Sense as being the most powerful ability, instead of a simple \"item and secret finder\" that the single player game makes it, or the \"bypass mindtrick\" ability that multiplayer makes it. Thus, I have taken it out of the equation somewhat, due to my current lack of modifying ability for the Single Player Game. It is still incrementable like all other abilities, but it starts the game at level 2. -Saber Throw I don\'t like saber throw. It\'s cheap, and impracticle. (Obi Wan: \"This weapon is your life!\") The jedi should never knowingly chuck their saber around the room. Our lightsaber is all we got. (I prefer to try to play and beat the Jedi Knight games without ever using any other weapons, however the placement of disrupter rifle snipers often forces me to play sniper wars *grr*). Anyway, Darth Vader(EP6) & Yoda(EP3) are the only Jedi to have been witnessed throwing their saber, and it wasn\'t with any real \"boomerang\" control, it was simply an agressive attack against Luke and a Clone Trooper. Thus, I revamped how Saber Throw is given in the game. With the default SaberPack all sabers are generically the same: all with default values. The MOD alters this play to give each saber specific combat capabilities and limitations, some of which include the inability to throw the saber. Kicks are available to those sabers that aren\'t throwable. However, since some sabers are throwable and others are not, Saber throw starts the game at 0, and it is up to you to increase it wisely. -Initial Forces: Pull: 1 //Because of the ID-10-T error, some maps require you //to be able to Pull/push objects. Also, it should be //innate for a Jedi to be able to \"pull\" items //(ie saber) to them. Sense: 2 Saber Offense: 1 Saber Defense; 1 -Tier 1: Game Start: 6 pts Missions: 1 pt (2 if All Secrets found) Total Points: 10 to 12 Possible Pts -Tier 2: First Mission: 3 pts (5 if Saber Favorite Weapon) Missions: 1 pt (2 if All Secrets found) Total Points: 7 to 12 Possible Pts -Tier 3: First Mission: 3 pts (5 if All Secrets found) Missions: 1 pts (2 if All Secrets found) Total Points: 7 to 13 Possible Pts Total Points In Game: 24 to 37 Possible Pts As you can see I did a little tweaking with the per mission point system. If you find all of the secrets on a mission (eg: Post-mission menu shows \"Secrets Found: # of #\") then, the next mission you recieve extra force points for spending. This is remaniscent of DFII:JK. However it isn\'t perfect, as some missions have secrets, but do not actually consider them as Secrets in the \"post-mission debrief\". So, basically if after the mission it displays a \"Secrets Found\" entry, and you have found ALL of the secrets for that level, you will recieve the extra point. [/quote] Next up we have some heavy modding to the saber combat system. This is where it gets even more in depth; from what I can tell you are able to choose from a variety of saber hilts, each with unique abilities and styles associated with them. For more information, be sure to read the FlufMod_Saber_Info.txt which contains a lengthy and very detailed explanation of the attributes and damages associated with each saber. [quote] =========================== - SinglePlayer Saber System =========================== -Select any Hilt, Any Style at start of game. Sabers: Dual, Staff, Single Stances: Medium, Strong, Fast, Tavion, Desann Colors: Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange, Purple, Red. Hilts: (See: FlufMod_Saber_Info.txt) -New Style selection system based on increasing Saber Offense If you increase your Saber Offense you will recieve the option to add an additional style of your choice. This happens at the Weapon Selection Screen. If you choose not to add a style at this moment, select NONE and you will recieve no bonus style. After Hoth and Vjun you still recieve the default new style as per the game, however at this point you can as well select NONE and choose to retain only the styles you currently posess. This acts now to make SaberOffense a tad bit more important, not just style-wise, but also as your attack base. You can have only one style, but a level 3 saber offense, so you are really powerful offensively, even though you only use one style of saber combat. Finally, this does not affect the MOD oriented hilt limitations. You still retain ALL styles you gain in the game, even if a specific HILT does not allow you to use it, so be careful about which saber hilt you pick and what styles you pick for it. Especially after VJun, where you can \"build\" a new saber hilt, so this may or may not affect styles learned throughout the course of the game. Also, after the VJun mission, where you str able to select a new saber hilt, this has been altered to prevent changing saber types. You must stick with whatever type of saber you began the game with. I personally like this better, because as the game progresses, you are \"practicing\" saber techniques with one type of saber. \"Obi-Wan: If only you\'d spend as much time practicing your saber techniques as you do flying, and you\'d rival Master Yoda as a swordsman.\" Hence, you don\'t really alternate between the saber types, you focus on ONE type and get really good at it. With this as well, I believe wholeheartedly in the role-play aspects, and thus if you increase your SaberOffense with one type of saber, you should have to start from Level 1 again for a different type of saber combat. Which, since I could not code this effect with the limited resources available for Single Player mods, I simply eliminitated the option.[/quote] As the author states in his readme, and as you can see from the amount of time and detail he has put into this mod, he is attempting to add some more RPG and choice related aspects to JKA, which while it allows you more freedom in gameplay than JK2, is still pretty linear gameplay wise. I would really like to go into this mod in more depth, but the very fact of its complexity makes it difficult to test for a review since we generally don’t have that much time, especially for huge mods like this. For the full effect, I would definitely recommend downloading this and starting a new game! Now, that’s the major points of the singleplayer side of the mod dealt with, so what about the multiplayer aspects? [b]Multiplayer[/b] AS in singleplayer, there have been some significant changes to the saber system, as outlined below: [quote] ================================= - Saber Style Selection... ================================= Yes, I think it is rather pointless, and annoying, for Raven to have coded in 7 total saber styles, and yet you can only use at best 3 at a time. Sabering is more than just 3 distinct methods, hell its more than the mere 7 animations they\'ve included, and since I\'m not a modeller we\'ll just have to make do. Instead, I basically opened up all the styles, Tavion, Fast, Medium, Strong, Desann, Dual, and Staff, as a point based system using your Saber Offense Level. Level 1 - 1 Point Level 2 - 3 Points Level 3 - 5 Points This works out, because Dual and Staff cost 3 points as opposed to all other styles 1 point. In addition to the Saber file scripts, you can configure the sabers to bonus you with styles or limit others. Like Anakin\'s EP2 saber, is normal, but his EP3 saber and Darth Vader\'s saber both have Desann learned, so you don\'t have to buy it. On the server side, you can effect styles available with a server CVAR, listed below. As well, Bot JKB files can use the same method of saber style flags in their force power string. Using the same bit flag addition values as you would for the g_SaberStyleDisable CVAR listed below (but only for the Styles not the disable flags) you would append that value to the bot\'s personality\'s forcepower string as follows: Example: 7-1-222222202020003333-104 The -104 gives the bot the use of Tavion, Strong, and Dual styles, I think. Not too good on the whole AI section of the source code, but they all use the same parsing engine as it does for the player, so for now I believe it works, and I\'ll keep testing for later revisions.[/quote] To be honest, I really have to agree with the author here, considering that Raven used different saber styles and attacks for Tavion and Desann its quite annoying that they only included 3 styles for the single saber and 1 for the dual and staff sabers each. Its a shame that we have to resort to modding to include extra styles like Tavion\'s and Desann\'s, when I think Raven should have included these and maybe more styles to begin with so that we would have more variety in gameplay. Along with this there have been many changes to the way force powers work, from the use of force points and force regen times, to adjustments of the various force powers, such as having to hold down the force speed (now called force dash) button in order to continue using it, which makes sense, as like the author says in his readme, Jedi don’t just \'turn it on and off\'. There have also been some adjustments to saber throw, meaning the saber now flies in a strait line, a la Yoda in Episode III, and you now have to go and pick your saber up afterwards, as it no longer returns automatically to your hand. There are many more adjustments which are explained in greater detail in the readme, which I wont paste in here since those alone are about three pages long! For more info be sure to read the readme! So what does the author have planned for future versions of this mod? [quote] ================================= - Future Plans ================================= First let me note that help is ALWAYS appreciated, especially from the fine folks at the filefront.com forums and elsewhere on the \'Net who help point out certain things and help me seek the location for things as well as offering advice, pointers, and general answering of foolish questions modders like me sometimes need. So anyway, in the end, this section is just a list of things I would \"like\" to do in the future, but can\'t because I suck. - Update Saber Deflections of standard Blaster attacks. I\'d like to change it so that it would deflect some on its own, but if you actively hold a key to \"contribute\" extra attention, your deflection rate skyrockets. Very rarely did you see powerful Jedi affected by blasters, especially when they were concentrating on deflecting the missles. I\'d like to add the Concentration. - Update a \"Sense\" radar. I dunno how exactly I\'d do this but I\'d like to make some sort of radar that would indicate hostile intention in a specific direction, for those rare moments when that 2D screen is just to limiting on the peripheral vision it would be nice to have the force work for us, point out where that last shot came (or is coming) from. [/quote] Personally I think both of these ideas are excellent. The idea for the saber deflection modifications reminds me of the Star Wars Episode I Game, where you actually had to use the attack button to deflect blaster bolts, which I have to say was much more satisfying than just having it done for you! I also like the \'sense radar\' idea, this would be very useful in FFA\'s and it could also be quite useful on singleplayer, when you see the beam of a disruptor rifle graze your shields and want to know where the shot came from. All in all a [i]very[/i] in depth and complex mod here. This wont appeal to everyone of course, but I am sure some people will absolutely love it! Just a note to the author for next time around though, I think it would be a good idea to include a simplified readme with a briefer outline of the features to make it easier for newbies to get started with the mod and also for the benefit of us reviewers to be able to quickly see what the mod features without having to do a lot of reading or hours of play-testing. ;) Keep up the good work JaedenRuiner, your modding skills are impressive, most impressive! ;) ~Nozyspy~

it\'s saber entry is just called \"Desann,\" but honestly, that\'s just nitpicking. One thing I would have suggested, since this is only for single player, is that you have tweaked the saber size so that it\'s Desann\'s preferred length, or include an alternate saber option to suffice. Otherwise, a nice clean conversion. INCOMING! - Averus Retruthan

Darth Phobos' Lightsaber Hilt

deceptionsaber.zip | 1.52 MB

Phobos. Along with Darth Desolous who's hilt SimonKTemplar also released recently, Darth Phobos only appears in the Wii, PS2 and PSP versions of The Force Unleashed. Having had a look at the Wookieepedia article for this character I can see there is a very good reference picture of her saber hilt there, and comparing that to SimonKTemplar's work here I can say that he has done a good job of making this model accurate. I also think this is the first double bladed hilt he has released (although I could be wrong) so its nice to see some more variety! One thing I would suggest improving a bit more is the edges of the textures around the metal rings, since they look a bit jagged, apart from that though, another fine hilt mod here! :) [b]New Model:[/b] Yes [b]New Sounds:[/b] No [b]New Effects:[/b] No ~Nozyspy~

PS3 TFU HUD

spilling my guts on that. I only noticed two things off about this hud: - Shield is rather difficult to spot - The ammo counter seems rather alienated all alone in the corner. The shield is fine, but methinks the ammo counter could have been added to the HUD bar somewhere as well. Don't get me wrong, the numbering looks fine, but having those numbers float there randomly seems rather...obstructive? Yeah, that sounds about right. Other than that, can't go wrong with this HUD if you don't use guns much, since the counter disappears in saber mode. You know what to do. - Averus Retruthan

But even playing as Ragnos didn't protect me from Tavion's wrath. Stupid yawing NPCs... Anywho, the weighting seemed fine to me, I didn't spot any glitches. Sounds are used from the respective sources in the game, although no taunts were there (obviously). A ragnos NPC has been added, but it still didn't stop my game from crashing when I used [b]/npc spawn ragnos[/b]. Looking at the NPC file, there's info about Desann in there, but Desann still spawned as himself. Not sure what's going on there. The hazard trooper and rocket trooper have been slightly downsized to fit onto the human skeleton, so they don't quite look right. That can't really be helped without the assistance of a serverside mod, though. Team support is included, but NPC and bot support aren't necessary. That's about all I have to say. I like this pack a lot - playing as Ragnos is the bomb. Check it out! New sounds: [b]No[/b] Team support: [b]Yes[/b] Bot support: [b]Not needed[/b] NPC Support: [b]Not needed[/b] ~Dretzel

Galen Marek's lightsaber + New Animations

galen_marek_lightsaberanimations_ashuradx.zip | 10.89 MB

haven't played The Force Unleashed too much, only on other people's consoles because I never bothered to get a 360 or the Playstation 3 :(. But from the looks of this it seems accurate enough to Starkiller's lightsaber hilt. I mean really who ever gets that close to the lightsaber hilt where they can actually tell the difference? I know I don't. Nevertheless, this is nicely accurate to Starkiller's saber, and not to mention it comes with an optional pk3 to make the hilt use the staff stance, so it appears as if he is using Marek's moves himself. This has no bugs that I can tell, so +1 on that. Secondly, there is lots of detail, right down to the little button's on the grip so +1 on that also. Thirdly, there is a handy pk3 that makes it so we can use the hilt more like it was in The Force Unleashed so +1 on that. In conclusion, this hilt is definitely base worthy for those of you that enjoyed The Force Unleashed and I know will stay in mine. Enjoy. ~Authuran

JamyzGenius First Choice Animations

jamyzgenius_first_choices_animations_1.0.zip | 8.23 MB

animate characters. Due to this the animations we have are no where near as realistic as what they can do these days, so it’s always good when someone goes and makes an animations mod to spruce up our game a bit. Here Jesus Fernandez Garcia brings us his latest animation compilation mod, which includes a multitude of new animations. As well as a new stances and animations for each of the saber styles, there are also new animations for; force push, force grip, force lightning, rolls, jumps and quite a few more besides! Personally I liked the new roll and jump animations, although they seemed a little too slow in their speed, the animations themselves looked more natural I think. Especially impressive though were the new saber stance animations, particularly the ones for the yellow stance, which was based off Count Dooku’s sword salute as seen in Episode 2 just before be duels Yoda. The animation here looks really cool and it has been well done and it is great to see as opposed to the somewhat more sedate default animations. This animation is also the authors favourite, and I can see why! I imagine this will be the favoured animation and saber style of many players now! There is also a new ‘death from above’ attack animation for the yellow stance and also for the blue stance. Among the new force power animations, the new force lightning animation was probably my favourite, since it now looks like it is taking some effort to shoot those bolts of lightning from your fingertips! There are still some things to be improved though. As I said before, I feel the jump and roll animations are a little too slow and could do with speeding up a little. Also, if you jump a long distance, the somersault animation continues to loop whilst you are in mid air rather than stopping after the initial jump, which looks somewhat unrealistic. Other than that I think some of the animations could do with a little more tweaking, but nothing major. All in all a great animation mod here, one, which I hope, will get a lot of use from the community. So, if you guys like the look of this, be sure to give it a download! :D ~Nozyspy~

Star Wars - Masters Of The Force Stances

star_wars_masters_of_the_force_stances_jedi_academy.zip | 8.23 MB

that that the makers of JKA didn’t make the animations more lifelike. Especially considering the improvements modders have been able to make. But, of course, Raven had time and monetary constraints that modders don’t have, so I guess there is a good reason! Here Jesus Fernandez Garcia brings us a mod, which brings together many new improvements to the lightsaber stances and other animations (including the jump animations and force power animations) for JKA. A full list of the changes to the animations can be found in the readme. So what are these new animations like? Well, very good I would say! The jumping animations for one look more natural I think, especially the speed at which the jumps are performed. The roll animations also look more natural, though I think the distance covered when you roll is a bit too much. All the saber stances have been changed and I think they look cool, especially the new stance for the staff saber which looks very sweeping and dramatic. There do seem to be a few bugs when transitioning between certain animations, but these aren’t serious and aren’t that noticeable either and overall I think all the new saber stance animations look very cool. After many years of playing with Base JKA animations, these are a refreshing change! :) There are also changes to the force power animations, including push, pull and grip among others. I think these too are a good improvement over the default JKA animations although the changes are a bit subtler than with the saber stances. For improvements I would suggest working on making the transition between animations a bit smoother, they do look a little jerky sometimes. I don’t know whether this is possible, but I think it would be cool to make some new animations for the Kata attacks too because I think that would be a refreshing change to the lightsaber combat in JKA. All in all a cool mod here which brings a lot of nice changes to the game. I definitely think this is worth a download for anyone who would like to see some more natural player animations in Jedi Academy! ~Nozyspy~

Mustafar

ffa_mustafar.zip | 34.3 MB

Star Wars fans waited thirty years to see, since there have been rumours and legends about the fiery volcanic planet where Vader gets roasted ever since the Original Trilogy was made. It is also perhaps one of the most difficult locations to make a map of, because of its distinct character. I think though that Plasma has pretty much nailed it here though! There are two maps in this pack, an FFA version and a Duel version. The duel version of course is a little smaller and also features Padme’s starship, which isn’t in the FFA version. The most important part of Mustafar is of course the [b]lava[/b] and good looking lava is surprisingly difficult to make. I am pleased to say that the lava in this map does indeed look very gloopy, hot and ‘lava-ry’, perfect for roasting Anakin! ;) I was particularly impressed with the lava falls and the lava bursts which jet out of the lava streams occasionally, which looked great. All the main movie areas are here bar one. That’s the outside of the facility where the collection arms are. However the collection arm is still featured, but in another part of the map. What is more, when you destroy the control panel in the control room, disabling the shields, the arm will eventually break off and float down the lava river, just like in the movie – including the bit where an eruption dumps a load of molten lava onto the collection arm! Other areas include the conference room, plenty of corridors, walkways over the lava and some storage rooms, as well as the main control room, which I mentioned above. The FFA map is a perfect size for a medium to large FFA, though I did feel that the Duel version was a little large for a duel map. Really I think the duel version could have done with being somewhat smaller, perhaps concentrating on just a couple of main areas. I also would have like to have seen a full realisation of the cliff area on which the mining facility is perched as well as all the collection arms. Lastly, I think Padme’s starship in the duel version could have done with a little more work, as it looked a bit out of proportion. Apart from those issues though, this is an excellent map, which once again displays Plasma’s impressive mapping skills. This is definitely one of the best Mustafar maps I have seen and I would recommend a download, especially to anyone who is a fan of Episode 3! :thumbsup: [b]New Textures:[/b] Yes [b]New Sounds:[/b] Yes [b]New Music:[/b] Yes [b]Bot Routes:[/b] Yes [b]Game Types:[/b] FFA, TFFA, Duel, Power Duel ~Nozyspy~

Chuck Norris

chuck_norris.zip | 2.22 MB

make a right? Who can smell carbon monoxide? Who is the legendary slayer of chicken-ninjas everywhere? Well, actually, that last one is Mudkip, but the rest are the one and only Chuck Norris. There. I got all the memes out of the way. Now let's have a meme-free comments page. Okay, wewt! Now, this skin is based on Major Clod's Indiana Jones, which one would've thought wouldn't be a perfect template for the Chuckster given that it looks like Harrison Ford. One would've been [i]spectacularly[/i] wrong. First we'll start with the face. Here you have it, proof that 80% of a face's detailing is in the textures, as there isn't a whole lot of Indy in here. To say this looks like "The Man" would be an understatement. It's as close as you're going to get without a dedicated model, and with JA's detail levels a dedicated model would be pointless since it'd look the same anyway (aside from the outfit). Let's move on to the textures. Not as much glowing praise here, I'm afraid, as the torso texture in particular is somewhat low-resolution. It wouldn't show so much from a distance, but the badge, that is so obviously low-res it hurts. The detailing on the hat isn't much better, but long-range, you won't notice that. The textures for the shirt and pants suffer from this, albeit to a lesser degree. Aside from the belt, it doesn't show so much here, and the shirt looks fairly natural despite the obvious blurring overkill. There's custom sounds, which are fine enough for their purpose. No other extras, unfortunately. For the Chuck Norris fans, this is one you've been waiting for. Download, download, download.

Elven Sword Pack

elven_sword_pack.zip | 1.05 MB

the model pack. This is a small collection of three elven weapons, an elven knife, an elven sword which can be used as a single hilt or as a staff, and the hadhafang. The are not as impressive as other weapons out there but they are indeed nice. One thing that bothered me though is the hilt on the sword looks weird, seems like the lines on it are uneven which take a little from it. Overall it’s a nice skin pack and everything LotR related is fine in my book. Download these swords or the rage of the Valar shall befall you! [i]Ayane Yamazaki[/i]

Complete Species Pack

speciespack_if.zip | 1.24 MB

section to increase the ability to mix and match clothing options. However, I noted two major things: - Most models don't have the label applied to them. - Some of the options are mixed up Better yet, this has only two pk3s, so you can only customize certain ones because the engine doesn't support all the models. So, might be a little conflict if you only use conflicting halves. HOWEVER, it is possible to simply put both in and try and figure out what ones are what XD. Honestly, m'lady, I don't think it was necessary to put EVERY SINGLE MODEL into the species section, but rather certain ones with custom additions that aren't easily reachable would have sufficed. However, I'd rather not argue against this idea given that it seemed insane in the first place O_o. Oh well. Maybe it may appeal to you masses. I know I only use the brown cultist model, and I know how to get to that one in a heartbeat. Bored? I know Lady Forge was ¬_¬.

Lara Croft

lara.zip | 3.93 MB

Lightsource, an author who is quickly making a shine in the community, has made a rather interesting likeness of Lara Croft using the Jan model. Naturally, I checked around, and I\'m guessing this is based off of a later game variant. That being said, I noticed immediately that something was wrong. Particularly, her booty shorts. Yeah, you know what I speakth off, fanchildren =_= Her booty shorts look way too big, and way too high up. If there\'s anything we all can agree on, it\'s that Lara Croft\'s booty shorts are suggestively small. However, given that may be because of the model, I suppose that might be unavoidable. Regardless, it looks like she\'s wearing senior citizen shorts or something of that nature. Other than that, the detail is incredible. Even from the screenshots, you can see how much painstaking detail is put into just about every item on her person. That, and you get a couple more outfits just to play around with. ISN\'T THAT NICE =_O? Overall, a high quality piece of craftwork. *STAMP* Bot Support:Aye NPC Support:Nay New Sounds: Aye Team Support:Aye - Averus Retruthan

Sith-J\'s Mygeeto FFA/CTF

sjc_mygeeto.zip | 11.01 MB

;) Anyway enough of that! :P Here we have a brilliant new map from Sith J Cull, this is certainly one I’ve been waiting for, and I know quite a lot of other people have been waiting eagerly for it too. Now where to start? Lets start with the size first. Now this map isn’t as big as some of Sith J’s previous work, but as he explains in the readme: [quote] I wanted to do so much more with this map, but time constraints this year have made working on anything JKA related very hard, so I made this little CTF/FFA map based on mygeeto blah thats it! hope you like it.[/quote] Not to worry though, as this map is still a good size for a medium FFA and a nice size for a good CTF match too, which is mainly what this map was designed for anyway. I don’t think Sith J has made many CTF maps, there are only 2 that I know of and this is one of them. I used to play CTF [b]alot[/b] back when I played JK2, so I always enjoy testing out new CTF maps to see what the gameplay and map flow is like. I couldn’t really properly test out gameplay on this map, because…well bots aren’t exactly as good as humans! The bot routing was still very good though! What about map flow though? I think it’s very good, this map could certainly make for some interesting CTF matches. There are basically two ways to get to the flag bases. Straight through the middle from one side to the other, or over a little bridge that connects from the middle of the map over to the side of the flag base, so you can try and sneak in. To make things even more interesting, the bridge is protected by what can only be laser-bolt proof glass. ;) So you cant just shoot at people from the side as they’re running along it! The look of this map is great, more Base JKA textures have been used here than normal, but that’s certainly not a bad thing! The texturing of the map is great. My favourite bits were the towers over the flag bases, the architecture on them looks really cool! The hills and BIG chunks of rock jutting up (they look like something from the planet Krypton in Superman) look great, they really add a sense of depth to the map. The dust hanging in the air looks cool as well, though it would have been a bit better if it fell like snow, just much, much slower. But I suppose you would have to edit the .efx file for that or something, and it could take quite a while to get just the effect you want (I know that from personal experience ;) ). All in all a very nice map here, I hope to see this played on some CTF servers out there! ;) Just before I wrap up my final review here at JK3Files, Sith J wanted me to mention that he wasn’t able to spend as much time as he would have liked on this map. Because of real life things and the fact that he wanted to work more on his new Tatooine map, he didn’t get around to finishing this map off to as high a standard as he would have liked. He also says that he will be releasing some other maps this year that he has been working on for a while, including: The Tatooine style Mos Kreetle. Complete with underground tram system, a bar, and a space port with the Falcon (inside and out) docked, and Queen Amidala’s Starship. After that its Kamino II. Then his Stargate map. He also says that the JKA-G mod (which will bring Starwars Galaxies style gameplay to JKA) is in the hands of a new coder so although at the moment progress is at a stand still, things will pick up this year. Well there we go, this is one map that I certainly liked, and I’m sure lots of other people will like it too! If you like the look of it, why not give it a download? ;) Bot Support: Yes New Textures: Yes New Sounds: Yes New Music: Yes Game Types: FFA, TFFA, CTF ~Nozyspy~

there is one problem with it. The author left the original sounds.cfg file in it but didn\'t include the actual sounds, so if you don\'t have the original model you\'re going to hear stunning silence when using this guy in-game. However I think most of the people who would download this probably already have the original, so it may not be much of a problem.[/quote]The sound issue has been corrected so you won\'t be the amazing silent clone anymore.

The Ancient Threat Episode I: The Orthand Mystery

tat1_r_v12.zip | 57.44 MB

just don't have time for such complicated levels! Honestly I love them. The mapping is great, the levels are really tricky (or I'm really dumb... :p), an the voice acting is even pretty good. I realized halfway through I had my subtites off, and since the person on the other end of the comlink is basically speaking jibberish I was wondering why I was confused. I'm going to let the screenshots speak mostly for themselves in terms of the architecture of the maps in this Single-Player mod. The maps themselves are tricky to get around. Especially that first one. I don't know how many times I died before I finally turned my brightness up, though that removed some of the challenge. I would have appreciated something more of an introductory cutscene, to find out a little bit more about our main character, but all in all it seems well thought out and well completed. It's no easy task to complete each level, and that's part of the appeal. Definitely worth a download. As soon as I get a few spare minutes I'm going to go finish up those last three levels ;) ~Inyri

Imperial Customization

imperial_customizationv6.zip | 18.82 MB

to make such a large group of skins. This is a single-player menu customization of a plethoral of Imperial officers, from private to Grand Moff. The sheer volume of choices, male and female, make this a perfect mod for RPGers, or just folks who like that extra bit of customization to their game. Because it is part of single-player menu it also works just as easily in multi-player, making it a truly versatile pack. Okay, now that I praised the author\'s dedication and intent, I need to critique the actual quality of the skins. I really need to point out that the author needs to practice skinning hair. Facial hair mainly, it seems. Every instance of facial hair, whether it was a mustache or a beard, looked incredibly odd. Skinning facial hair is definitely not easy, and the author just needs to practice it more in order to get it to look real. One other thing that I didn\'t like about this mod was the way he set up the .skin files. This pack has so many heads and torsos that it looks like there are 100 heads. However this doesn\'t seem to be the case, unless I missed something. From what I can tell their are doubles for each: one for grey uniform and one for white. This isn\'t so much a bad thing as it is kind of irritating. For some reason part of the arm is attached to the head skin, so if you switch heads you switch upper arm as well. I did make some kind of funny looking mottled grey/white uniforms. Overall I give it a thumbs up. The modder obviously spent a long time on this, even if it was just making out all those different .skin files and making sure they all worked. Kudos, and keep up the good work! ~Inyri NOTE: Read the read-me for more detailed information on different skin categories.

Force Council Headquaters

fchq2.zip | 9.26 MB

FPS but due to some nice VIS areaportalling my FPS was always above 40. (No worries then) It's a big map, and takes a fair time to load - nothing like Kamino but longer than your average map. There's plenty on areas to look around, and some clan-based training areas like moving jump pads hovering over a foggy abyss :) Theres also some custom vehicles called "Mini-TIES's" which are basically really small versions of the original vehicles and are still pilotable. Its a downside you can't kill other people with them though, unless they're in a vehicle as well. You can fly around most of the base in there if you wanted, its good fun :D The ambient sounds here are great too, machinery, whistling winds down large holes, you name it - it's probably there. The music choice surprised me a bit, as it's so overused in my opinion and not really what I would have chosen.:( Moving on, there were a few things I was curious about. Firstly, there was a pitch black room with nothing that I could see in it. In the readme and pk3 there's vague references to some kind of camera room, which I suspect might mean there's more to this room that meets the eye, but I couldn't be bothered finding it ;) There were a few patch bugs in the room with the rebel symbol on the floor - If you look closely at the curve around it, it doesn't meet the patch on it, but to be honest you won't notice it unless you're looking for it. Other problems could include vehicle errors - as many of you know JKA has issues with a max custom vehicles limit, so if you get those errors you may need to remove other custom maps with custom vehicles included. However, this map was great fun to play and looks great. There's bot support as well, so you can play on your own! The final major thing that needs mentioning is the skyport area. You can teleport here and to other areas through floor teleporters around the map and end up at a hovering tower in a large bespin sky. There are 4 vehicles that respawn here for some ship fighting if that's your bag, and some guidance towers so you don't get lost ;) New Textures: Yes New Sounds: Yes Bot Support: Yes ~Szico VII~

Siege Destroyer Map

jasiegedestroyer.exe | 5.67 MB

thank you to the community for making JA such a popular game - they\'re presenting us with a new Siege map! So in Siege Destroyer, it seems that the Imperials have captured the Millennium Falcon! *gasp* They want what\'s in the ship and will stop at nothing to get it. So if you\'re a Rebel, it\'s your job to destroy their defenses and release the Millennium Falcon. If you\'re playing for the Imperials, you need to blow up the Rebels and keep them from getting back their precious ship. The Imperials will be using TIE Fighters, TIE Bombers and turbolaser defenses on the surface of the Star Destroyer to keep the Rebels at bay. If you\'re fighting for the forces of good, you\'ll have X-Wing Starfighters and Z-95 Headhunters. The music included is from episode V and should be familiar to you. :) I had a lot of fun playing this map, even though I still suck at flying. I managed to destroy a few things here and there. :D So finally, we have another Siege map to add to the list. Hopefully we\'ll see more being created by the mappers out there. :) Bot Support: N/A New Textures: Yes New Music: Yes Game Types: Siege ~AmosMagee

Jango Fett

jangoizzy.zip | 3.49 MB

shaders this time. I must've been too tired to notice em before - they're very well implemented. For a start, it's not your standard TCGen shader, no. These effects are much less noticeable, but still make it look like metal. This way the whole Jango Fett in many battles thing shows through. Scrathed helmets don't shine like brand new do they? It's kinda wierd. You know something's there, and it looks good, but it's hard to pick out what, ya know? The only shader I coud pick out easily was the helmet shader, where the light goes from one side to the other. Nice:) As I said before, the actual skin is obviously a Boba Fett Reskin, nothing you haven't seen before, but it's more impressive than the original. Nice blue armour :) You can also play as him in SP mode if you so desire, makes a nice change. So there's all the nice shaders and stuff, but it doesn't bring something incredibly new and exciting to players looking for a little more 'zing' in their JKA gaming. Some may prefer more original skins, but for fans and people looking for some very nice realism, this is a skin to download :) The sounds (or at least a few of em) are taken from the movie for more realism, and there is Bot and Team Support. I really liked the variants for this :) He also has a variation where he dons a Jetpack which looks perhaps a little too blue, but still well designed. Doesn't work unless you also have a real jetpack on, and then there's Z-Fighting, but not a huge problem. New Sounds: Yes Team Support: Yes Bot Support: Yes ~Szico VII~

Jaden Korr - 41ABY v2

jaden_korr41aby_v2.zip | 7.26 MB

shall! Then, at the changes look, we will! [quote]Jaden Korr, in the books?! What is this insanity?! ...*Looks up on Wookieepedia*... Ohhh right, so it was Crosscurrent he was in, as well as a few of the post Yuuzhan Vong War 'Legacy of the Force' books as well! Well, I never knew that! I actually have Crosscurrent but have not read it yet, so I guess i will have to now! From what I know of the plot, it seems a group of Sith from thousands of years ago get lost in a bad hyperspace jump and end up thousands of years in the future, perhaps the only example of time travel that I am aware of in the Star Wars Universe. Anyway, lets take a look at this skin pack! A fine addition to his already large collection of skins, hollywood_g1 has given Jaden an older and slightly rougher look to go along with his greater experience, no longer the Padawan learner he was in JKA. There are multiple skins with clothing inspired by Starkillers look from The Force Unleashed, which I think fits the idea of a battler hardened older Jaden very well. Some of his armour features the Rebel emblem, which while it looks good is slightly inaccurate as it should probably bear the emblem of the New Republic or [url=http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/File:New_Jedi_Order.svg]New Jedi Order[/url]. There are various different skins to choose from, there is a robed version, which I think is my favourite and looks closest to the reference picture below, as well as a fully armoured version, among many others! Though there are no team skins, the various body parts that make up these skins are available from the skin selection menu so you are able to create your own customized version of Jaden should you wish! I am glad to see that this is something that hollywoord_g1 has done quite a lot as it gives the player much more choice in which skin, or indeed, combination of skins they want to use. Of course, nothing is perfect, and one of the things I think could be improved upon here is the hair. The hair is an almost ginger colour on top and black with some splashes of grey at the sides. Personally, I think the hair should be a darkish brown all over, with just a few grey streaks at the side burns, to make Jaden look older and wiser in a similar style to Kyle. At the moment there is just too much of a difference in colour between the hair on the top of his head and the hair on the sides. Other than that though these skins are very good and certainly something a bit different! Overall this is a cool skin pack and they certainly resemble the cool piece of 'older Jaden' artwork (a book cover?) that hollywood_g1 has found and included in his screenshots below. Keep up the excellent skinning! :) [b]New Sounds:[/b] No [b]Bot Support:[/b] Yes [b]Team Support:[/b] No ~Nozyspy~ [/quote] How do you get so big, eating food of this kind?! *Cough* Sorry, where was I? Oh, that's right, updates! One of the most noticeable fixes for this new version is that hollywood_g1 has much improved the grey and brown areas of the hair over the previous version, which as I mentioned in my review did not blend together well. They now blend together well and look much better, though I have to say the brown on the top of Jaden's head still looks too bright and orangy. Sorry, but I am very fussy over details like this! ;) Among the other updates the author has added four new torso clothing options, my favourites being the Jedi Trainer robes and the cool looking Mandalorian armour! The colour customization also works now, though only for one of the torso's as far as I could see; where it changes the colour of the piping on the robes. It would be cool to see some more leg variations to choose from for next time and don’t forget, the head option doesn’t actually change the head, but rather changes the hands! You can choose from either bare hands, gloved hands, or a scary looking prosthesis, apparently attached after Jaden lost a few of his fingers in a battle (he came off better than Luke at least!). To avoid confusion, it may be better to actually put pictures of the different hands here as I myself was at first confused as to why the heads weren’t changing, before I realised it was actually the hands! Overall a good update here, though I still think there could be further refinements. No mod is every perfect after all, but we can always try and get as close to perfection as possible! ;) Lastly I would also suggest changing the .pk3 name by adding a _v3 or something to the end for next time, as people may be confused if the .pk3 filename for the new version is the same as the old one! Keep up the excellent work hollywood_g1, I can see you have a few other files in our waiting list and I will review them as soon as I can!

Sure enough, I did find a picture that matched the features on this skin, and given the circumstances, Jan was not a bad choice to reskin. Now the first thing I noticed on this character was just how grouchy she looks. Even when she was smiling in this pictures her heavyset brow just looked more fit for a scowl. This skin has definitely captured the essence of that scowl. I could see that grouchy piercing stare on her face all too easily, which I reckon is a good thing for likeness. The torso looks to have used a very familiar skin texture as a base. The top(I'm sure some brainiac will give the proper term in the comments,) looks rather primitive, and looks like it was just pasted over the existing texture, but scarily enough...it works. However, lot of work that needs to be done on the torso. This Erza lady looks like she got into a fight with a cat in that picture I saw, so she needed plenty more scratches and scars on her upper body, like crazy. I also noticed she has some kind of tattoo on her outer bicep, so definitely don't forget that. Below all that, it pretty much gets the job done. It's still rather freaky that she lacks a naval entirely, but I'm rather certain his source material didn't have one either, so I guess it's not your fault entirely, Ganseki. Even though the hair is hardly the right length for this character,(Another typical feature: abnormally long hair,) you definitely have something going for this skin, so even if you can't get a model, you certainly can make this skin work well enough to get the job done. Overall a very nice start. I'm intrigued to see what your V2 holds for us.. Bot Support:Nay NPC Support:Aye New Sounds:Nay Team Support:Aye - Averus Retruthan

KotOR Dark Jedi

it. This skin, however, needs a little more work to really look like the KotOR dark Jedi. For instance, the "black" parts are actually red, and you can still see the decal/pattern from the reborn on the torso and hood. There are also some black spots near crease areas, and perhaps the most obvious is the missing facial covering which really makes the dark Jedi in KotOR so cool. It would have been easy enough to do, too. Overall it seems more like a recolor than a reskin, and despite the smiliarities in their outfits, you need to do a little more than recolor this bad boy to make him a KotOR dark Jedi. I'd recommend giving it another whack and really go for accuracy this time instead of "well, that's pretty close."

Jedi Council GCX - 2010

jedicouncilgcx2010_v3.zip | 37.22 MB

remember our server using it JedicouncilGC ad nausea. Erstok, in whatever enterprising mood struck him that day that he began, has decided to "update" JedicouncilGCX in an effort to breathe new life into the map. His plan? Rebuild the entire thing from scratch and make his desired changes. Now, before I begin, let me elaborate on the basic premises of JedicouncilGCX. This map was essentially the headquarters of the {O} clan back in the early 2000's. Somehow, someway, this map got leaked into the public, and was never officially released, per se. Since then, it has served as a grounds for Roleplay in a Jedi Temple setting, or a general hangout map for Jedi-oriented clans. In an effort to show you all just how the old and the new differ from each other, I will be describing each individually as I walk you through the map. We'll start in... -=The Lobby=- Old: This was always my least favorite room as it was always big and empty, and didn't have much appeal to me with the white marble. This room consisted of a large arched hallway with massive cylindrical pillars and red carpet leading up the stairs and around them. A lot of benches and plants were dotted about the general area, and there were many doorways that led to various training rooms, though a select few led to special or transitional areas within the temple. New: The function and architecture of this area hasn't changed much. From what I've been told, the pillars appear to be slightly different in construction, though I cannot say for certain if this is true. The red carpet originally did not lead to the NPC training room or the dark room(covered later,) but now there are paths to these rooms. Lighting has been altered in this area, including sunbeams peaking through the windows, which is definitely a neat touch. The statues, which were originally JK2, are now JK3 Rift statues. Door placement has not changed, however. -=The Dark, NPC, Dojo, and Water training Rooms=- Old:GCX was quite infamous for possessing a motley assortment of dueling/training areas. First, a dark room with minimal lighting and four turret positions at every corner of the room. Second, a japanese style dojo with some display cases in the room. Third, a glass dueling room with a pit of water below. Finally, a half-circle NPC training room, with a slew of default NPCs to train your battle skills upon, and a hidden observation room for teachers. New: The Dark Room now features a monochrome lighting scheme versus the red/blue scheme that the original possessed. The Japanese Dojo has endured no changes, which is sort of a shame, since there's no sourced lighting in this room. The glass dueling room has undergone a major change, with the glass catwalks now leading to TWO exits. The water is also much more shallow than the previous, making it easier to get back into the fight. Finally, the NPC training room has now undergone a full spherical overhaul, and the observation deck is much more visible. -=Archives=- Old: The archives in GCX were massive, almost intimidating. There were two doors that led into the archives, though for some reason, both led to only one section of the archives, with an additional section branching out to another section. Both sections had large grand staircases that led up to the second level, and equally massive windows to provide sunlight. The bookcases were also...just insanely massive, and on the outside of each shelf on the first floor were display cases full of saber hilts. New: This place was pretty much rebuilt entirely. The place is a lot less colossal, and a lot more plausible. The archives are a lot tighter now, which means less travel time, and the stairs are now near the doors, which now lead to individual sections of the archives instead of the same. There's also glass guards so you can't just walk off the second floor and hit the floor. The workstations are all on the first floor, so no random tables on the second floor. Windows are smaller, and the hilts are still there. -=The Hangar, Bar, and Prison=- Old: GCX featured a "Master Windu's Bar and Grill" in the middle of a hangar full of Jedi Starfighters created by Aaron Smith, along with an X-wing and YT-1300. On the upper floor, there was a detention block where people could be imprisoned. New: This update doesn't change much in the hangar. The bar has a bit darker lighting scheme, and now features a switch that toggles some lounge music. Very nice touch. The prison and the hangar hasn't gotten much overhaul other than the lighting, though the wire catwalk is now glass. Alright, this could go on forever... I think I'll do two more areas, and let you guys explore the rest XD! -=The Hallways=- Old: GCX, despite being a great map, had very bland and lifeless hallways. They were pretty much simplistic rectangular transitions. New: The new hallways are FAR more decorative. Complete with a brighter lighting, these hallways now have more ornate architecture with banners at set intervals. SOOO much better than the original. -=The Upper Rooms=- Old: Four elevators led up to an upper floor that led to two bedchamber wings, a meditation chamber, and a council chamber. This room was notorious for having concealed buttons in the council and the bedrooms. New: Wow, this place got a nice overhaul. First off, the bed chamber wings got shorter transitionary wings, filled with benches, a fountain structure in the middle of the room to fill it out better, and similar architecture to the hallways to fill it in moreso. The secret buttons? Visible now. Sorta sad, but sorta nice too. No biggy. The council room and meditation room are generally the same, though the sizes are a little different. Whew...alright, so, as you can see, this map already had a lot to offer back in GCX, and now GCX '10 offers even more. This version actually added the classic space council room from the JK2 JedicouncilGC, which was a pretty neat idea. Along with the new additions, I neglected to mention the new admin room to lock down some of the rooms, as well as the overhauled garden, but honestly, it's worth a look. Now...methinks this needs a 2.1, and lemme tell ya why! 1.) That pillar in the middle of the council room just has to go. It just seems so obstructive, and it makes no sense to place a stone pillar where a human could stand in the center in the middle of inquiries, and council members can't address people across the room without looking around it. 2.) You basically made the same mistake GC did, including enough of the vehicle information to make it semi-playable and displayable, but some of the shaders aren't there. Go beyond the book, and include the full set so people can use it without having to download the thing off of Lucasfiles!(hint, hint.) 3.)See if you can alter the bacta tanks so that a player can enter them. Trust me, seems stupid, but you'd please oh so many people. Seriously, if you include those things, this map would outclass it's inspired work in totality. I say go for it, Erstok. You've pulled a wise move, facelifting this map. Looking forward to see any future versions like crazy. =_,= New Textures: Aye New Music: Aye Secrets to plunder: Aye Bot Support: Aye - Averus Retruthan[/quote] Right, so what's new?! Quite a bit, really. We have a huge textural overhaul. A prime example I noticed is that the training room is now darker and has a HORDE of training damage. The carpet overhauls look pretty nice as well. Now, some additional changes: The hangar has now been completely overhauled, with the starfighters completely removed and in their place, stacks of boxes and a better floor. The bar has gotten an aesthetic overhaul, as did the detention center. Much better security, I'd say. In the medical bay...well remember when I asked if he could make the bacta tanks usable? Turns out, he made new ones and they're quite awesome =_= and they are fully interactive. And finally, the Jedi Council, the hallmark of the entire map, has been touched up, with an Atlantica style halo lamp and the removal of that blasted pillar. Rest well, Erstok, for you have done a great service to the JedicouncilGCX map's legacy. The temple is now much more lived in, and has greatly benefited from your handiwork. I declare this map to be in a far better(and far more RPable!) state than it used to be. Let all rejoice, and make merry...

Legacy of the Sith II

lots_ii.zip | 3.95 MB

Sith characters. Darth Bane and Darth Revan probably tie as my favourite, since I have enjoyed reading the new Darth Bane novels, and KotOR is one of my favourite games of all time, Darth Nihilus comes in close behind, since well, he was just weird, but in a cool bad guy kinda way. [url=http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Darth_Ruin]Darth Ruin[/url] is a character I have only ever seen in the Jedi Vs Sith: The Essential Guide to the Force book, but is nonetheless another cool looking bad guy! Interestingly, each one of these skins uses the same model and despite this look very different. You would have thought that four skins all using the same model would look a bit samey but the author has done a good job of making each of these look unique (Darth Bane's face looking particularly impressive considering the texture was 'photosourced' as making photosouced textures look just right can be tricky). Whilst the model used doesn't look like characters do in their reference material, the good texturing means you don't really notice the discrepancy too much. Although custom models for each character would be cool the main thing I would like to see for any future versions are some custom sounds, for Darth Revan and Darth Nihilus this shouldn't be too much of a problem since you could probably get a little sound bite from KotOR and KotOR 2. Darth Bane and Darth Ruin would be more difficult, but I'm sure a suitable sounding taunt could be found somewhere! Apart from that though I am most impressed with this skin pack, not least because it brings some more of my favourite characters into JKA. I also like how each skin looks unique despite using the same player model, which could have caused problems, but thankfully didn't as the model fits pretty well with each of the characters. Finally these skins also include team support and bot support, which rounds up the pack nicely! Keep up the good work Lord Parias, I hope you will make more Old Republic themed characters!

Homer Simpson

Simpson model or skin released here for JKA, there haven't been any Simpson's skins released here besides [file=37279]ArchAngel's Homer Simpson[/file] skin that was released here for JK2 back in 2005, upon which this mod is based. The skin itself does not appear to have been changed, however it does have several new features, including; bot support, NPC support and new authentic Homer sounds, which was my favourite part! Afterall what would a Simpson's mod/skin be without some authentic character sounds? ;) This also includes the team skins from the original mod, including evil Homer for the red team, of course. As for improvements, I would say that since this is a cartoon character, this skin would benefit a lot from being cell shaded, which would give Homer that more 'animated' appearance. Overall its good to see that this mod has been brought over to JKA and also to see that the author has added some new sounds and taunts to spruce up and old JK2 classic. If you are a Simpson's fan, this is a must download! ;) [b]New Sounds:[/b] Yes [b]Bot Support:[/b] Yes [b]NPC Support:[/b] Yes [b]Team Support:[/b] Yes ~Nozyspy~

Dark Forces II Skin Pack

df2_skin_pack.zip | 55.01 MB

newer ones for story material. As a tribute to the characters of the classic Dark Forces games, DarthPhae has put together a skin pack including most of the major characters from Dark Forces and Dark Forces II. Most notably, of course, is Kyle Katarn himself, and Jan Ors. Both are in a variety of outfite (especially Kyle). Jerec, Qu-Rahn, Maw, Boc, Sariss and Yun are thrown in as well. I really can't critique each individual skin, since I haven't played all of the games yet. However, I will say this much - the models aren't entirely accurate in all areas. That is to be expected, since this is a skin pack and not a model pack, but it should be mentioned. All but two of the skins had working sounds for me, and there we no other noticeable glitches in-game. The skinning job flowed smoothly from skin to skin. One thing I did notice was that Kyle's pants seem to have been done cheaply with a lot of black paint, but meh, I didn't look too closely since they were the same every time. All extras - sounds, team support, bot support and NPC support are included. Overall, this looks like a good piece of work to me. If you're interested in classic Dark Forces characters, you know what to click next! New sounds: [b]Yes[/b] Team support: [b]Yes[/b] Bot support: [b]Yes[/b] NPC Support: [b]Yes[/b] ~Dretzel

The Dark Forest

51the_dark_forest.zip | 4.37 MB

small house. Imagine invisible walls being there to prevent you from leaving the roads. One road has ends that drop off the face of the earth, and the other has a cave that leads to an underground arena. That would be what this map consists of. Not being able to wander freely through the forest really bugged me, and the edges of the map abruptly ending didn't help things, but otherwise I really like this map. The atmosphere is just my style, and it's all pretty well built, although the teleporters in the arena could have been a bit more obvious as being teleporters. I walked right into one without knowing that it was a teleporter. Also, there's really no way to find the path leading to the house unless you press up against the invisible walls until you find it, but even then it isn't guaranteed. I tried that method and didn't find it. The teleporter to the house was the only way I even found out about that path. Anyway, good map, if you ask me. A few changes and it could easily be a great map, though! If ya like it, you know what to do. Game Types: FFA, TFFA New textures: No New sounds: No New music: Yes New models: No

Double-Cross on Nar Shaddaa

dfii_ns_double_cross_sp.rar | 35.74 MB

please note that you will have to open the console and type "map zurvan6" to load the level. It's a remake of the first level in Jedi Knight, titled Double-Cross on Nar Shaddaa. Or, at least, it's supposed to be a remake of that level. Right off the bat, when I spawned in the level, I found that things looked far different than they did in the old game. Having a Reborn attack me first thing didn't help either. Running through the level, I found that some parts of it matched the source quite well while others did not even come close. It almost makes me wonder if the author really had any experience playing the level, or if they just watched someone play it and decided to try to remake it. Some of the enemies and rooms were correct, but the addition of Sith to the level sorta ruined it for me. I was looking forward to a level where I wouldn't have to use my saber. On a final note, I don't know what the purpose of including the IG-88 model was, as the droid doesn't seem to make an appearance in the level... [b]EDIT: Apparently he does show up, but when I played through three times it he didn't show at all.[/b] Anyway, if you're expecting an exact remake of the first level of Jedi Knight 1, then this level isn't for you. If you want a new SP level, though, there's no reason to not give it a download!

Chaos Warrior

chaos_warrior.zip | 2.22 MB

detail. This is a reskin of the cultist model. The bulk of the work seems to have been simply recoloring the clothes to a flat color. Thank goodness the shadows are still there. Additionally, the author pasted a "chaos star" logo in several areas of the skin. While I'm not particularly fond of the arrangement or the number of them, the symbol at least adds a little variety. Looking at the bigger picture, it looks like it's a first skin. There really wasn't a whole lot of effort put into it - an experienced skinner could probably replicate it in under ten minutes. My advice is that since you know how to assemble a skin, you really should make more unique things with more work behind them. Recoloring something to a fullbright red or fullbright pink doesn't really look too good, even with a logo slapped over it.

Arena of Saint Fire

aosf.zip | 1.55 MB

we look at this map we see a dark room that's not too cramped but not too big either. On the side of entrance we have doors, but seeing as this is a duel map we can't really open them, instead we simply spawn in front of them right inside the room. On the other side there are two statues of dogs that look like ones that would belong to a nasty, evil Sith. Between them there is a small set of stairs that lead to Sidious-like statue holding a rock dish with fire. Left and right sides of the room are filled with three columns respectively on each side with torches between them. The map plays quite well as a duel map, however it could use a bit more light, when fighting with a few bots during testing, sometimes I couldn't see them unless they turned the lightsaber on. All in all it's a nice, climatic duel map that will surely take a nice spot in every Duel-Mode fan's Base folder. Please submit some of your beloved and precioussssss bandwidth. -Schrödinger

4Glory Gun Re-vamp

forglorygunrevamp.zip | 10.17 MB

is so annoying, and the blaster pistol can barely hurt a fly. Not to mention the repeater looks like its shooting molten apples out of the tiny little barrel of it. Unfortunately, you will have to deal with that because the models haven't been changed in this mod. Instead they have been reskinned! Yes, some are more green, some more orange, red, name any color. The skinning quality is hard to explain. There's not really any enormous changes when recoloring a gun. I mean what am I supposed to say? "All the bumps and scratches that were there before are still there but in orange." Really all I can say is that the author did a fantastic job with the recoloring. I didn't see any weird lines or colors splotching over into the next part. But wait! That's not all, is what Bill Mays would say if he were a JKfiles reviewer. The author has also put in.... *drumroll*.... new gun effects! Some of the guns will now shoot green (eggs and ham) lasers at your enemies, or teammates if you are that kind of person. Really, like before it's also hard to explain. The quality is good for... weapon effects.... and the coloring is really hard to see because, well, I don't have to explain it! It's common sense lasers in Star Wars fly at intense speeds! But judging by the screenshots the coloring looks fine, nice, however you describe laser coloring. Mmmm download if you hate the way the weapons look, and are looking for a nice quality replacement. Enjoy. ~Authuran

Chalmun's Cantina

chalmuns_cantina.zip | 42.92 MB

Trap map made by Sssid LivingDeadJedi and Sith J Cull a long while back. But this is the first map I have seen in which the author has attempted to make the look and layout as close as possible to the film and other sources. Most Star Wars fans are probably familiar with this location from the films, but how many of you knew that it was actually called [url=http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Chalmun%27s_Cantina]Chalmun’s Cantina[/url]? The cantina is run by a Wookiee called Chalmun, hence the name! [b]Accuracy[/b] As the author says in his readme, he used the “Incredible Locations” cross-section book for the Original Trilogy in the construction of this map, and you can certainly tell! Whilst the accuracy is not 100% spot on, most likely due to the problems with actually building such an odd shaped structure in Radiant, it is very accurate to both the film and the pictures in the cross-section book. Even one of the obscure little details, the basement featuring skeletons buried in some alcoves at the far end! The layout of the interior of the cantina is very close to the diagrams, featuring even the correct placing of the stage from which the band plays. Particularly impressive though is the bar in the center, which features the best looking set of those crazy metal bottles and pipes that I have ever seen in any map! Im pretty sure these are models, since you cant get detail and shapes that good by using patches in Radiant. Either way, the center bar looks fantastic, especially when you have dynamic glow turned on. ;) Since the ‘Incredible Locations’ book doesn’t really show much of the area surrounding the cantina, I cant really comment on the accuracy of the rest of the map, although I did spot a few features that are just about included on the edge of the picture in the book. [b]Architecture[/b] The architecture is also accurate, and very well made considering the difficulty of working with patches in Radiant. I especially liked the ceiling of the cantina, with the beams running across it. Outside features typical Tatooine architecture with plenty of domed buildings and some nice little dome houses as well as a couple of large towers. Another enterable building besides the cantina is a small hanger which features a very accurate T-16 Skyhopper. Again the author used a book here, this time ‘The Essential Guide to Vehicles and Vessels’ to get a very accurate look and dimensions for the ship. The ship is on a platform which you can raise up by pressing the console in the small control room, although don’t get stuck underneath the platform if it comes back down! Personally I think this little area under the platform would be a great place to have a small vent or hatch that you could open and crawl through to escape or take you to another part of the map, just for a bit extra fun! [b]Graphics[/b] The most fantastic part of this map though is the terrain, which I think utilises [url=http://szicovii.com/modules/smartsection/item.php?itemid=1]Szico’s ‘Horizon Blending’ technique. The results are absolutely fantastic, just take a look at the screenshots below. It actually looks like there is an infinite horizon rather than just a square of terrain surrounded by a skybox, it looks like you could just walk out into the desert... Seeing this map has definitely inspired me to try out this technique too! [b]Improvements[/b] I do feel that there could be some improvements made to the map though, afterall no map is perfect, right? I definitely think that the outside architecture needs some improvement, since it is a little plain. Its not bad, I just think it needs a bit more detail, that’s all. Perhaps a few more crumbling walls, a blaster mark on the wall here and there, rougher edges, etc. I also think that the buildings would look better in more of a brown colour, as opposed to the base JKA white coloured stucco used here. Other than that I think that the shadows need to be improved, perhaps by adding an ‘ambient 15’ command to the worldspawn in Radiant to make them a little less black and using the –filter option when you compile the map to smooth out the shadows a little. The only other thing is that there is no music in the map! Except for the cantina band music playing in the cantina. Although I guess map music would play over the cantina band music and spoil it a bit, it is rather too quiet outside, perhaps adding some sound effects, like some talking people, or a whistling breeze would be good. [b]Conclusion[/b] All in all though, this is a good map, it’s pièce de résistance being the cantina interior and that fantastic terrain horizon blending! An interesting addition is that this file actually contains two maps, one with the cantina and the rest of the surroundings, and one with only the cantina interior. The difference is that the map which has [i]only[/i] the cantina interior also has a blue mist throughout the map. Personally I think this looks more atmospheric that the normal cantina interior. I put this down the patrons smoking too many death sticks! Don’t do it kids, its bad for your health! Anyway, this map is definitely worth a download I think, and I look forward to seeing more of Krattle’s work! :D [b]Bot Support:[/b] Yes [b]New Textures:[/b] Yes [b]New Sounds:[/b] Yes (Yes, its that famous cantina band music!)

Imperial Assassin

imperial_assassin_v3.zip | 4.03 MB

version, all the markings on the skin are now glowy. As I am sure you all know by now, I do rather like glowy things! Of course, for a [i]real[/i] assassin who wishes to hide and strike from the shadows, being lit up like a neon sign probably wont help with the stealthy aspect of being an assassin, but hey, it’s Star Wars! Glowy assassins are allowed! :P I think it is good how the author got around the potential problem of the team skins for this new version. As the original default skin had red markings, this would obviously mean that the red team skin would be exactly the same as the default one. But for this version, the default skin now has white glowy markings, which I actually prefer to the red ones. The red team skin is of course… red, and the blue team skin is…blue! All three skins look great and I think the author has done a very good job with the skinning job, and especially that cool glowy shader. There are also some new sounds, courtesy of some sounds from Scerendo’s ST Shadowtrooper pack. There doesn’t seem to be any bot support however, which is one thing I would suggest as an improvement for next time. There is still the issue with the eyeballs not being glowy, but it doesn’t seem as though that can be fixed, and it not really that noticeable anyway. Besides that I didn’t notice any bugs, and I think the skins are pretty well polished up now, so I cant really think of what other improvements could be made. All in all I really like these skins, and I look forward to seeing more work from GoodJawa! :thumbsup: If you guys like the look of this skin, then be sure to give it a download!

Star Wars Movie Duels 2 - Demo

md2_demo.zip | 94.15 MB

and coming in Movie Duels 2.0. Obviously, it will be quite limited, but I think it's a good teaser of the mod to come. The main feature of this demo is Palpatine's Arrest, the duel between Mace Windu and Palpatine. You can play as either Mace Windu or Chancellor Palpatine. Many of the saber moves have been changed. I was able to quickly adapt to the new setup...perhaps it is similar to the setup in JO? In any case, I think the attacks were [i]much[/i] better than the base JA ones - less delicate swinging, and a lot more hard hits and pokes. I haven't seen Episode III in a long time, so I can't really say anything about how accurate (or inaccurate) the map may be, but it looks very nice to me, and it's the perfect size for a duel. I can't say much for the character models for the same reason, but again, they do the job well. I daresay the Palpatine model is spot on. There are cutscenes between the different stages of the duel as well. Here's one thing I think should be improved, if at all possible...the characters walk down the hallway just doing a simple overhead swing unless their sabers hit. Needs to be a little more...epic, methinks. Some minor choreography would be just the thing. The final cutscene of the duel is done pretty well for JA...again, I think it could be better, but it is good for Quake III. Palpatine is forced to the edge of the windowsill, and Anakin enters the room. After Palpatine is done blaming Windu for him zapping himself, you take control of Anakin, and you get to choose who dies. I very happily killed Palpatine. Twice. I had to suck it up for the third time just so I could see what happened when I killed Windu instead... XD And I wasn't disappointed in what followed. After you've played Palpatine's Arrest once, there's still a little surprise for you! A make believe scenario has been created where Anakin chooses to fight Palpatine after he has revealed his sith identity. Palpatine pulls out his saber and the two have it out. Once you've run his health down, another cutscene plays...Palpatine pulls a little something out of somewhere. It makes sense that he'd have one hidden in his office, when you think about it. Great twist, I enjoyed it much. So, what are you waiting for? Get it downloading! I'm not a fan of SP mods, but I'll have to keep an eye on this one for sure. ~Dretzel

TFU Pike Lightsaber

tfu_pike_saber_by_vek892.zip | 44.16 KB

several times for the sheer joy of blasting my enemies away with epic powers non-stop, I was excited when I saw this weapon, as I always thought the pike sabers from TFU were awesome. Now, to remove any confusion, the Shadow Guard is NOT the Red guards you see in the old movies, they are the Emperor's Royal Guards who use a [b]Force[/b] Pike weapon. The Lightsaber Pike is basically a metal staff, which can ignite a short lightsaber blade on the end. Typically the pike is silver, but I think I also remember seeing a black and gold version in The Force Unleased. The developer of this hilt, Vek, has done a good job but I think more work is needed. In terms of shape its basically perfect and I commend you on that, but I feel the textures and design of the pike could definately be improved. I have done some looking around and its not easy to find good pictures of this weapon, but I did find a few which do include a bit more design, like some black rings at the top, perhaps a darker texture on the grip and things like that, because at a distance it almost looks like a plain silver pole, this seems to be something to do with the shaders, when your facing one way, it appears that the bottom half is darker, then when you face another way, its the top half. So yeh, that about sums it up, great idea with putting this together, shape and size is great, but I would like to see a v2 with improved texturing and shaders, or maybe even make a black one with gold trim just for me! Great work for your first attempt Vek, keep it up. I COMMAND THEE TO DOWNLOAD! ... if you like what you see of course. ;) - AmonRa

Jaden Korr Dark Side Outfit

jadensithoutfitfix.zip | 9.9 MB

outfit itself is a recolor of a default Jaden outfit, but for the most part it's quite well-done, if not a little boring due to the color choices. Gotta say the black panels seem awfully solid, almost as if they're armor instead of the 'elaborate ceremonial dress pauldrons' (for lack of a better term), but it's not so bad. The Stormtrooper arm is the big difference here, which adds a definite Imperial overtone. Although, it appears to have been skinned over the fabric, so it does distort - I imagine that can't be helped. A new head is packaged, or shall I say, a non-overriding adjustment to a pre-existing one. The longer-haired Jaden is now available with both blonde and brown hair. Not much of a big change, but the hair recoloring is done professionally. Master_Ibonek missed a true calling - salon stylist! Although it should be noted, that the facial hair is in fact still blonde. The second head modification overwrites the shorter-haired caucasian head, whose "brown" hair was noticeably not very brown at all, but more sienna-indigo. See the screenshot for the direct comparison. Recommended simply because choice is good, and there's no reason not to recommend it.[/quote]This simple fix merely repairs a bug with the "torso half-skirt thingy" - as Ibonek so eloquently put it - which rendered the front side invisible. You shouldn't have any further transparency issues with this. ~ Kouen

Bleach Zanpakuto pack 1

bleach_zanpakutos_pack_1.zip | 7.91 MB

deliver on that. Instead, you get a bunch of katana-like swords that are all similar to each other with a few slight differences, such as Kenpachi's sword, which has a broken down and jagged blade. Included are the following weapons, all in their basic form (I forget the actual name for the term): [quote]The swords included are (In no particular order): - Kyoka Suigetsu, the sword of the main bad guy of the series, Aizen Sousuke - Shinji Hirako's unnamed sword - Haineko, the sword of Rangiku Matsumoto, the female vice-captain of 10th squad - Gamuza, the sword of the arrancar Nell Tu - Pantera, the sword of the arrancar Grimmjow Jaggerjaq - Zaraki Kenpachi's sword, with it's beaten up cutting edge and rough appearance - Suzumushi, Kaname Tousen's sword - Shinsou, Ichimaru Gin's wakizashi. - Zenbonsakura, the sword of Kuchiki Byakuya[/quote] From everything I remember and have seen, they are pretty accurate. I'm not 100% about the lengths of the blades, since blades on swords always look off to me even if they are right for some reason... Skin-wise, it's pretty simple work, but accurate to what they are supposed to be. The shaders on the weapons help take the attention away from the simple skin. Couple that with the fact that you prolly wouldn't notice while playing anyway, and you've got a pretty good sword set here. You know the drill, give it a download if you like it!

Taspir Power Complex V3

taspir_power_complex_v3.zip | 51.02 MB

Seriously! The insides of the three towers around the map all look the same, and I could never tell where I was or which floor I was on. Mind you, I did get lost in [i]my own map[/i] once... Errm, perhaps I shouldn't have said that. Ehem, anyway, on with the review! Well, we have a big treat for you here today. Fans of the previous two versions of the Taspir Power Complex map will be drooling to get their hands on the latest version no doubt. Never fear, for your download is near (well just at the bottom of this review actually)! I think people who have never heard of this map, or perhaps didn’t like the previous two versions will be won over by the latest maps incredible features. Since this is such an [i]epic[/i] map, this is going to be quite a lengthy review, even then I will have to cut bits out, since there are such a huge amount of features in this map, I would have to write a book to cover them all! If you have been waiting for this map, my nice long review will be a good thing for you, since it will take you marginally longer to scroll down the page to get to the download button, thanks to its length. Hopefully this will build up the suspense and excitement just a little bit more. :P Anyway, where do I start? This is such a HUGE map that there is a lot to cover here. In fact the main map could really be two maps in one (I shall come to that later). Although I should really call this a map pack, since there are actually a number of maps included in the .pk3 here, including a night time version of the main map, and also a CTF map and a couple of duel maps! Since there is so much here, I will concentrate mostly on the main FFA map of the files title. First of all lets have a look at the: [b]Architecture[/b] The architecture of the original Taspir map was pretty simple, yet at the same time distinctive. The author here has improved the architecture for the original areas of the map; however, the real challenge comes when you start adding new areas to the original one. The thing is, to make the transition between old and new as seamless as possible, you have to build your new areas in the same style of architecture as the old areas. This makes the map seem more of a whole, rather than an obvious mixture between the original parts, and the new additions. Trust me when I say that this is a difficult thing to do! The author has done an excellent job here, merging the original Taspir areas with his new additions. In some areas, I honestly couldn’t tell where the old map ended, and where the new additions began, they were that well blended together. That is a difficult thing to do, so well done there mate! :) [b]Additions[/b] Well, where do I start?! There are so many new areas to explore here, I could spend all day writing about them! One of my favourite areas was the ‘clan bedrooms’ area. This seems to be a feature on quite a lot of clan oriented maps, such as Sith Council v2, however, I think the bedroom area in this map is the best I have ever seen in any clan themed map. It is well laid out, there is lots of space and the furniture is much more realistic than I’ve seen in other maps. Importantly though, the furniture here is also properly sized, so no gigantic desks or chairs, they are the right proportion to the player character! We also have new areas added to the top of the towers in the main part of the map. There are some landing pads with spawnable ships, gun turrets, and even what looks to be an air traffic control tower! There are also many other features up here, however, another one of my favourite areas was down below… Going through a door in the mountain side down at the bottom near the lava takes you into what must be the reason for the maps name; the Power Complex. This is a large area inside a huge cave, with power generators, lots of walkways with girders, pipes, and all manner of industrial looking apparatus filling the area. Also most impressive is how the lava is down below, lighting the cavernous space with its fiery red glow. On a side note, I also want to say how much I was impressed with the new lava texture, it is a vast improvement over the original Base JKA lava texture! The most colossal addition to this map (in fact, it could be a whole map in itself) is the massive space area, filled with asteroids! There is a space station with spawnable ships, masses of asteroids and other features, and my favourite part) a huge asteroid in the middle much like the one seen in Episode 2 during the dogfight between Jango and Obi Wan. It has several holes in it, and a sizeable area inside, so you can test your piloting skills out trying to fly through it! ;) Even more clever, the way to get to this space area is simply to get one of the spawnable ships and fly it up into the sky…you are then teleported straight to the space sector! If you want to go back to the planet’s surface, then all you need to do is fly towards the planet in the skybox in space. A very clever system for moving between the two areas that I haven’t seen done before. Even after all that, there is still a huge amount of new features and areas to explore on this map, you can keep coming back day after day and keep finding new things! [b]Interactivity[/b] Once again, I could write a book with the amount of interactive features there are on this map! As I have already said, there are spawnable ships in various areas of the map for flying around in, as well as many new areas which have interactive features. This map has a total of [b]56[/b] scripts which control and enable certain things to happen around the map. Now that probably won’t mean a lot to most people unless you are a mapper. But let me say that most maps have [i]no[/i] scripts at all! And the ones that do have scripts, generally speaking don’t have that many. In that light that 56 scripts in a single map, is a huge amount and must have taken a lot of work! There is one particular secret, which probably involves a fair few of those scripts, which will make your eyes pop out with the incredible changes it actually makes to the map, however that is a secret, so I shall say no more. :P Perhaps the best interactive feature of this map is the ability to customise it for your own clan. I know on some clan-oriented maps, various different clans that use the map will replace the original clan’s textures (logos and such) in the .pk3, with their own textures and logos. Thus when they play the map, the original clan’s logos and textures have been replaced with their own, thus customising it for their own use. This map is very special however, in that this is the first map I have ever come across that has this ability [i]built into the design of the map[/i] which means the map was meant to have certain textures replaced so clans can customise it for themselves! [b] ***Full instructions on how to do this are on the authors website, you can find the address in the readme below.***[/b] As well as that, there are a huge amount of teleporters hidden throughout the map which take you to various secret places. Including secret observation rooms, rooms with lots o’ buttons that do various things throughout the map (including changing the music), excellent sniping positions, secret areas for duelling in and so on. A nifty feature in the hidden duel rooms is the auto return feature, so if you are defeated in the duel, or die any other way, you are automatically teleported back into the duel room you were in before. To leave the room or disable this feature all you need to do is just walk to the exit sign, and you are teleported back into the main map. [b]Extras[/b] In reality, this isn’t just one map, but actually [b]six[/b] maps! First of all we have the main FFA map, which comes in two flavours, both a day and a night version! The night version gives a whole different feel to the map, and is very well done. Then we have a CTF version of the main map, which has had several areas changed, including the main platform in the middle of the map, which has been made dramatically smaller. It also new moves up and down, and deploys a small ramp to get onto it, all by using the console near it. This was very well made, and could be useful for all kinds of things, especially duels and such. The layout of other areas is also slightly different, but still similar to the main FFA map. The red and blue flags are housed at the top of the towers, which are lit by red and blue lights respectively on the outside. Moving on, we then have another tree Duel maps! Two of them are the same, being the main platform area from the original map, once again coming in night and day versions. A really cool (and somewhat scary) feature of these maps is that the lava down below the platform starts to rise every so often, accompanied by a small earthquake…until the lava engulfs the two lower platforms / areas leaving just the main platform up to! So if you are duelling down below, and the earthquakes start, you know that’s your que to move to the upper platforms, or get engulfed by rising lava! The other duel map, is another area from the new main map, the underground cavern where the power plant is. This makes a fantastic place to duel because of the numerous walkways and the deadly lava down below! ;) [b]Conclusion[/b] All in all this is an absolutely epic map, and I’m really not exaggerating when I say that. It really is [i]that[/i] good! It has endless secrets to explore, new areas to discover, incredible interactivity and on top of all of that, it has been tailored to also suit the needs of clans. As far as interactive clan themed maps go, I really do believe that this map sets the new [b]gold standard[/b] in terms of the huge amount of features it offers, and the overall consistent excellent build quality. And if you are wondering about low FPS, the author also included another .pk3 in the .zip file (Tpcv3_low_fps_fix.pk3) which disables certain features which may slow older computer systems, thus making the map even more accessible to people. This is an absolute [i]must download[/i] as far as I am concerned, I haven’t seen a map with this many things to do, secrets to discover and new areas to explore for longer than I can remember!

Altair, The Assassin

altair_the_assassin.zip | 3.08 MB

necessary to see what this man Altair looked like. =_o well, allow me to now state that this is a reborn skin, and whilst the screenshots make it look alright, it all seems to be smoke and mirrors. Looking closely, a lot of this skin's cloth seems to be the tragic result of a photoshop filter. The result looks like some sorta potato sack look, and whilst it would probably be more periodically fitting, over 75% of mankind doesn't care about periodic realism, and thus it doesn't achieve the cloth look necessary to maintain accuracy. In fact O_o it looked like Altair was wearing chainmail greaves for pants. The accessories naturally feel very fake, and as such harms the quality of the skins' feel, crying out a need for a model. A rather noticeable bug from the front is that the red accessory in the front has a texture misalignment at the waist, and thus takes the quality down another notch. The face is hard to judge, as not much was really done to it. The facial hair coloration to match up, that's for certain. The moustache was very sloppily done, as it seems unnaturally lopsided. Overall, whilst the heart was in it, the execution could have been a little better. The skin in its current form seems a bit sloppy, its potential unrealized. Comb back through your skin's content, and see what you could do to possibly remedy the problems presented before you. As I said, there was good intent, but it just didn't cut the cake.

Clone Wars Stances and Effects Mod

clonewarsv5.zip | 25.38 MB

JA+, MBII, and OJP support. Now, about the stances themselves. I like the blue stance, which is basically the normal standing position, but with the saber pointed off to the side. Walking uses the same basic stance, but with the legs moving. Yellow holds the saber close, and red looks like it is trying to imitate a certain stance in Episode 2. Dual stance holds one saber forward and one up above, and finally, the staff stance holds the saber back behind the body. Walking stance for the staff looks like the upper half of the body uses the staff walking animation, but the legs use the duals walking animation. Walking stance for duals holds both sabers back, and learning forward, which I think is perfect for duals while running, but doesn't work so well while just walking... If that isn't enough for you, there's also an option to add in some new swings. I personally don't like these much, simply because while they looks kinda cool (though they suffer from the typical animation mod flaw of it not flowing like it should), they cause less hits to get in. However, I liked being able to do that spin attack that Palpatine uses. :p I'm not going to go into the specifics of the changes, but I will say that pretty much every attack is changed. The best way to tell how is to download it and try it yourselves! All in all, this is a good stance/animation mod. It could use a little work, but still worth at least trying out. I suggest giving it a download! Oh yeah, this mod also overwrites the base sabers also, so if you don't want the default ones changed, you'll need to edit the pk3 yourselves...

Korriban Sith Academy

korriban_sith_academy_v1.1.zip | 7.24 MB

features two generalized areas -- inside and outside. The outside portion is a valley, not dissimilar to all the descriptions of the Valley of the Dark Lords that we have out there. It\'s got valley right there in the name, after all! The terrain is pretty good, although there are many areas that are not smoothed which detracts from a realistic feel. The entrance to the main complex really struck me as unique. Scripts are used to create a compound door that opens in a very interesting way. In terms of gameplay, this may hinder gameplay as the doors open very slowly. So you trade playability for eye candy -- your call on whether that\'s for you or not. I found the architecture inside to be somewhat hit or miss. I originally thought that the textures didn\'t fit with the more modern architectural style, but after a while it grew on me. I do love the layout of the map, and it\'s big enough to support a decent-sized free for all. The architecture is also varied enough to avoid boredom. There are some small updates and some minor additions from the first version, but I\'ll let you read about them in the read-me as they do seem more detail oriented than content oriented. My biggest suggestion would be to work on the lighting. In some areas the lighting just seems fairly unrealistic (ie pitch black in the shadows outside, and the light from the flames seems far too yellow). Otherwise seems like a good map and I think with some more aesthetic updates it could really polish up well.

TMU Neo & Morpheus + Katana

tmu_set.zip | 9.79 MB

have been released, though. Neo, Morpheus, and a few weapons. The author says that these are unfinished, except the katana, but they are pretty good for being unfinished. I\'ll get the weapons out of the way. There are three included that I could find, but two of them show up untextured ingame for me, both of which are the katana weapons (One normal, one backhanded). The third one, though, worked well except for the fact that it is held sideways, so it hits less than it would held normally. The textures are well done on it. Now to the Neo model. To be honest, I think it is great. It fits the character very well, I found no real issues with the model itself. The only thing I have to complain about is the shading on the face... The shadows on the lower part of the face seem too dark. Other than that, no complaints! The Morpheus model gets almost the same response, except for a couple of things. First off, the texture on the glasses wouldn\'t work for me. So when I checked it out in ModView later, I took them off to see what it looked like without them. Apparently Morpheus is cross-eyed, since the eyes on this model were. :D I also thought that some of the texturing could have used a little work, especially on the lower back of his coat. It just seemed... off. Hard to explain... Sadly, no extras were included either, such as team skins, Bot and NPC support, and new sounds. They really aren\'t hard to do, and with the quality of the work I have seen in this pack, I don\'t see why the author would not want to add them in also... Ah well... But these things aren\'t really enough to make me not want to use them. For being \'unfinished\', they are quite well done. I would love to see what the author\'s finished versions would look like.

Alzoc 3 Capital

alzoc_3_capital.zip | 26.2 MB

earnest, a good chunk of the map has retained the nature of its previous counterparts, so let\'s see what our friend Lady Forge had to say about the previous \"version\". [quote]I must say, this is one of the most amazing maps I\'ve seen. After testing the map for the better part of a half hour (and I\'m sure I didn\'t test every area, it was that big) I only found one error. This is Corellia. It\'s a very metropolitan take on Corellia, featuring many of the high-flying aspects of Coruscant. It\'s basically three skyscrapers jutting out of the sky of Corellia, each holding their own secrets to discover. I use the word \"secrets\" lightly, so don\'t take it literally. There were so many areas to explore, but I\'ll narrow it down to a few. First I\'ll start with the outside. Basically the outside is what it sounds like - the area outside of the towers. It features landing platforms, bridges between the towers (lest you fall to an unpleasant death), as well as various signs and displays. Quite possibly the coolest thing about these maps is that very little of the detail is static. Things blink and rotate, adding quite heavily to the metropolitan feel of the map. It is very reminiscent of Coruscant from Episode II. Inside the towers is plenty to explore. For instance I managed to find several vehicles (so to speak). Inside one of the towers was some kind of small ground vehicle, though unusable, and outside the towers were a cloakshape fighter and what looked like a T-16 skyhopper. That part was cool, because you can actually go inside of it from within one of the towers. Finding your way around these towers is no easy task, though. Just when I thought I\'d seen everything, I\'d find out that the elevators went down too! This is one of those maps that just seems ideal for an RP server. It\'s huge, has plenty of areas, as well as many things to \"claim\" as your own, including rooms, cantinas, and even what seemed like a black market stash of weapons, hidden behind some breakable glass. The one thing I found kind of distracting was that the atmosphere in certain areas seemed a little \"misty\", foggy even, though perhaps it\'s just my eyes. Still, ane excellent map, and certainly worth a download from anyone who considers themselves a map connoisseur. [/quote] In essence, the map pretty much has mostly additions and one subtraction I could note. For example, the Sky-high factor was subtracted in this version, and instead of falling to your death, you fall into a lower area with large pipes that slow eats away at your health until you get out. Should you find it, an elevator goes from there to a building with the glass doors in the previous one. This building has been renovated as well, the elevator you would have taken being the only functional one. The main addition was a new building. You\'re presented with a magnificent revolving glass door and a marble lobby. Quite magnificent. Going up the \'vator, one can then explore the new interesting interiors and MAKE MERRY =_=. Another small addition was a large catwalk that can be used for multiple purpose. Nothing too useful here other than a sniper and a glass platform. Other than that, it\'s almost like the previous versions, but with an atmosphere change(skybox, music, etc.) applied to it. Personally, however, I believe said change was for the better. I personally suggest you initiate Project Take A Look Around And See If You Could Use It. =_,= GIVE ME BANDWIDTH OR I GIVE YOU DEATH =_= Man, I love twisting and destroying historical quotes..

The models have also been re-weighed to smooth out the issues caused by these changes. Well, the mesh was altered, so they\'d have needed re-weighing anyway - but SithDagger is more than justified in saying that the new weighing job is much better than the old one, I looked specifically for the deformation problems the older versions had and didn\'t see them anywhere.[/quote] Updated in this version: [list][*]Female and male chest areas have been updated for accuracy.

Clone Wars Cartoon Model Pack

psk0_cw_model_pack.zip | 15.26 MB

gentlemen, cel-shaded and look just like the real-life... actually cartoon-life counterparts! This is done rather nicely by using a small trick - texturing only one side of a face, so it looks like it is contoured from one side and it looks like it isn't from the other. Pretty clever, and it works well. First we have quite a few Jedi, namely Anakin, Obi-Wan, Luminara Unduli, Barriss Offee, Mace Windu, Yoda and Kit Fisto. Anakin looks pretty spiffy, with a nice-looking costume and the robotic hand, which is actually quite good :) It might not be eprfect, but it does get the job done. Obi-Wan is... strange. I don't know, his face jsut doesn't look too Obi-Wan-ish and certainly won't be my favourite, even though I like him in the miniseries. Luminara has a bug that I don't quite understand... Her cloak's front side doesn't appear in my game. It does work in ModView though... Anyway, she is exactly who she is supposed to be - Luminara Unduli. Psyk0Sith did a great job at her, it's one of my favourite models in the pack. Barriss Offee is Luminara's Padawan and appears in one or two CW episodes, along with her master. I don't know why, but it just doesn't strike me "this is Barriss Offee!" when I'm looking at the model in-game. Maybe it was because of her rather short time on screen, maybe it's just me, or maybe it is the model's fault. I'd lean towards the 3rd theory, though... Don't get me wrong, the model isn't bad! It's just that it's not clearly her. And she, by the way, has the same bug as Luminara does. Master Windu in this costume appeared in an episode devoted to him and him only, and in one or two comm transmissions. There are actually 2 versions of this skin, with and without a generic robe. The model is pretty much accurate, but... But... I'm not particularly impressed with the head, it could be thinner, I think the author could do that around the cheek area. Yoda, the little green guy with the funny quotes! He has two robe colors, a dark gray one and a tan one. I'm pretty much impressed with this little person, although the weighting is really sloppy. This model is really just like the Yoda from CW. It has the CW-esque head shape that it didn't have anywhere else. I like that one :) Then we have Kit Fisto, an another green guy, this time with an octopus on his head. He's only dressed in underwear, as portraied in an episode of CW, where he fought against the Quarren. I don't like the look on his face, he should be smiling, that's his trademark. I don't like his taunt either, but that's pretty much secondary. The model itself (except for that smile) is done rather well and you cannot possibly think it's someone else than Kit himself. Next we have the Dark Side people! Count Dooku, Asajj Ventress, General Grievous and Durge... Count Dooku is great, model-wise, I love how his goatie turned out! The clothes could be lighter, they jsut don't seem appealing to me. The cloaked variant is nice, but once again, there is a rigging problem, the little chain goes right through the robe in a weird way... Asajj, the Sith wannabe... I think she's not really new, but still, she is one of the better models in this pack. Nice, nice! The detail on this model is pretty good, considering the need for a lack of detail (animated series animators have to make the character frames as simple to draw as possible). The model is just liek the Dark Jedi I know :) Grievous next! I'm don't like the skin colors (too dark), or the face (looks like a human face enclosed in metal, the chin shouldn't really be pointed down THAT much), but I absolutely love the legs, I've never seen anything simmilar on a JA model, and wow, it totally fits in. Durge, the weird-looking octopusy...thingy. Now here I'm sure I've seen him already, released on his own. Poor Durge. Oh well, the model you ask? It's just like what you would imagine, and that is a good thing! He is bulky, jsut like the CW Durge was, and is really one of the best models in this pack. And last, but certainly not least, come the soldiers... A pink battle droid and a super battle droid for the CIS, and a Clonetrooper and an ARC Trooper for the good guys, the Republic. A battle droid... hm... And it's the pink, post-Geonosis variant. It's also one of the best models in the pack (I might say that ít is the best one) It is detailed, and looks just like it should, with everything working and functional. I love this model. Next, the SBD. The model is very nice and clean, but I don't like the sounds. A bit too high-pitched. I think they do come from Episode III, but I still don't like them. The model is great otherwise, almost perfect :) And now my favourite troopers of all times... Yeah, I do like Clonetroopers :) The model is very, very nice, but the clipping! That's really one of the few weak points of this pack... Now the independent Clonetroopers, the ARC Troopers. They are very, very, very nice and they are my favourites, along with the BD. They don't look like ARC Troopers, they are ARC Troopers! While the model is perfect, parts of the model clip through each another, due to the weighting. Shame, really. To sum it up, most of the models are pretty good, and I do like them. The sounds are not bad either, but there are a few soundsets I don't really like, the SBD one for example. Then there is the weighting. That really downgraded the pack alot, so I would surely try to improve in that. Clipping just isn't appealing. I hope you'll make more of these, this time with better weighting ;) PS: For an even more complete CW Cartoon experience, use the new lightsaber blades included in the Zip.

YodaVM

yodavm.zip | 4.54 MB

created us a new Yoda, with plenty to choose from. There are 4 different skins included in this, and Ep2, Ep3, Ep5 and Fleeing Yoda. The model is great, only a few clipping problems, but as with the youngling, it is hard to avoid because of the size of the model (remember to add it to your JAplus modelscale server admins!!) The Ep2/3/5 are all easily explained, they\'re basically the robes Yoda was wearing in each of those movies, the Fleeing Yoda (Yoda heading to dagobah) includes a backpack, which is a unique idea and very well executed. There are a few taunts here too, some of them add two quotes together which work quite well. Overall it\'s currently the best Yoda we have and probably we have for the rest of this game\'s time. Yoda fans should be pleased ;) [b]To get the right size for Yoda, I suggest you add the following to ‘modelscale.cfg’ in your JAplus Folder: \"yodavm\" 0.75 \"yodaflee\" 0.75[/b] New Sounds: Yes Team Support: Yes NPC Support: Yes Bot Support: Yes -Rink

Movie Saber Clash effects Mod

moviesaberclashmod.zip | 115.28 KB

the body look like a saber clash. Overall it gives the effect of a more realistic saber fight because it doesn\'t look like you are actually hitting anyone, making it perfect for movie making. It also makes the saber fights feel faster paced and exhilarating. I can only really see two downsides to this mod, firstly it would give you a bit of a disadvantage in duels, and normally you can tell if you got a good hit in or not. Also you still get the shield effect which kinda ruins the feel of it. Maybe that could be changed in version 2 *hint* I think this is probably one of the most practical mods I have ever seen; I can see a valid use for it. All in all, Good Work -TheSpike

Episode III Clones

epiiiclones.zip | 5.85 MB

the more I saw the subtle differences that made them good, such as the scortch marks on the armor and the smudges. Considering these are all just reskins of the Stormtrooper model, they\'re really not too bad. There\'s a normal white version (looks much like the normal stormtrooper, but with a modified helmet and some \'grunge\'), a green \"elite\" version, an orange version, and blue and red versions. Now I don\'t consider myself an expert on Episode 3, so I\'m not sure how accurate all these markings are compared to the real thing, but I do like how they look, so if you\'re a detail freak you may not like these as much if they\'re not 100% accurate, which (considering they are reskins) I\'m sure they\'re not. However as some variety to the normal stormtrooper, I think they\'re worth a download. Bot Support: Yes Team Support: Yes New Sounds: No NPC Support: Yes ~Inyri

the model is pretty spot on. The clothing textures are all magnificent, and minus some strange hilighting on the hands and cheeks the flesh textures are rather good, as well. If you're looking for a good female model, this may be one to add to your collection. As would be expected by such a well-rounded modeller, the model comes with bot support and team colors, as well as NPC support.

JAM's JK2/3 Kill Tracker

jamktv2.zip | 1.59 MB

tracking (obviously) 2. Spam-echoer 3. JK2 and JA support 4. Note and friend lists 5. Message configurator with a command variable help, color scheme help, and a preview window 6. Media player with playlist capabilities 7. Update check (click JAM in the main browser) and contact information Having been around since the first days of JK2, I've seen all the kill trackers and never been impressed. Whenever someone joined one of the clan servers I played on and I saw that exacerbating kill tracker message, I repeatedly used my "kill tracker off" bind or spammed the same message in the console. To me, "!kt off" was the only good thing about them. JAM's version may have changed my mind about that. While I still don't see the need to publicly track your statistics, the auto-message feature and music options are definitely an evlolution from the early versions. I realize that those options have been available for a while, but as a graphic designer, the ease of use, graphics, and media player feel make JAM's version my choice. The readme for this program is located by default at: "C:/Program Files/JAM's Jedi Knight KT/readme.txt" once it is installed. Technical Data: Pros: 1. Very easy to use. 2. Gorgeous layout. Cons: 1. NA Rating: 10/10[/quote] A few usful things have been added in v2 and a few fixes too. The interface looks much more slick now, I felt the first version looks a bit big and clunky. The black colour has been added to color schemes now, thats great since alot of people use black in their names. Good job JAM, this is a great tool for recording your kills, playing music, adding friend lists and more. Once again this version works for both JK2 and JKA, update it now! -Rink

can’t be used in Paint. While this is great and cool and fantastic, it needs to be realized that quite frankly, if you can’t convert files normally on your own, be it lack of a program or lack of skill, your skins probably won’t be accepted by the general public anyway. You can be a Maddox at paint, but that stuff just doesn’t come across well for skins. This is the sort of program that you might wind up using out of game, however. For instance, if you need to make a signature using an image from JK2, or JK3, or whatever game, you can use this if the file is in a .tga. So while this file doesn’t hold its direct purpose, it might still come in handy. ~Wassup1444465

Alternative Dark Ending

like him you might enjoy this. After you defeat Kyle and flatten him by making a load of rocks fall on him, insted of jumping out of the rocks Kyle will die and stay under the rocks while Luke comes along and says 'You're now one with the force' or something like that. It's all good but there is a downside. It all looks very... I dunno 'glitchy', when Luke comes along he walks into the rocks and when Luke's lying on the floor that scene sticks for awhile. It also cuts the first Tavion scene but the author tells us how to fix that: [quote]if you REALLY can't live without that scene, then you have to type "/map kor2" in the console, and then just start over, and then it SHOULD be there.[/quote] Overall it's not bad but personally I'm happy seeing Kyle live (well untill JK4).

Samurai (v2)

samurai_v2.zip | 6.15 MB

one there has some great looking armor and katanas. The mask and helmet are very detailed and interesting to gaze upon. I didn't notice any problems with weighting, but I didn't play with it much. The team skins for the first model are what you'd expect, and they look wonderful. The second model features a maskless warrior who has a very serious look about him. Nice facial hair, too. The third Samurai there is actually no helmet or mask and is considered the "Archer". He looks great. According to the readme, these models were inspired by The Last Samurai and I'm quite pleased with them. The only thing that disappoints me is that there weren't any new sounds done. Please, please update this model with sounds. And do more models.[/quote] The V2 definitely expands on all the points mentioned in that review, with the inclusion of new sounds and more skins/models to add to the pack. The sounds are a two-edged sword, because, although the voices sound excellent, the phrases can seem a bit cheesy. I'd expect a samurai to have a japanese taunt with some kind of deep spiritual meaning, but instead we have things like "Don't cry." which I daresay sounds slightly wimpy ;) All the death sounds e.t.c are fitting and I've got no problems with these. Onto the actual models then :) Well, there’s not much to fault with these models. As with the first versions, there's plenty of detail - samurai swords, chains, cuffs and large intricate headgear all combine together to make a visually stunning model. The skins which accompany these models are of a similar quality - the textures are fantastic and the faces manage to capture that japanese/chinese kind of expression. I believe there's also some new models in this skin - a samurai who is less armoured, similar to Hattori Hanzo from Kill Bill, (in terms of clothing) and some otherwise samurai looking ones which I can't really relate to anything else, just have a look at the screenshots (which were from the author because they show the models much better than mine did.) One thing which I did find slightly irritating about some of the models was the flag wedged into their backs, but the author(s) have been extremely initiative and have included documentation on how to remove the flags. Very nice :) There are some flaws though, as with most new models. Firstly, you dont actually get to see most of the model when you're actually playing, which means you miss out on 80% of the work put into this. Honestly, the backs of these skins aren't what you want to be looking at, and the detail which is on the front is unfortunately lost when you're playing. Admittedly this isn't a fault of the author, but maybe a little more detail on the back could have been nice. Secondly, with the model shown in the final screenshot, his trousers have some clipping errors when you run. It's nothing that’s going to end the world, but is a small bug. The author didn't forget the team skins, and they are too stunning. Although not significantly different from the base skins, they clearly represent the red and blue aspect with different coloured helmets, belts e.t.c. The only aspect missing now is bot support, something I sorely miss from a great model/skin. I don't know if there's going to be a third version, but if there is, please add bot support so I can have samurai wars ;) New Sounds: Yes Team Support: Yes Bot Support: No ~Szico VII~

is this map\'s layout practical, it\'s pretty! :) The screenshots really don\'t do the map justice. I love the glass everywhere and trust me, it looks much better in-game. In the main lobby area, you can either take a lift to the top where you can station yourself at a gun and take some shots are ships flying by, or take one of the um ... well, what would you call it? It\'s like, a little transporter car thingy. Take one of those to another little round lobby where you take the elevator down to the paths that will lead you to one of the numerous pads. Press a button and voila - a ship appears. Jump in and fly around, blowing stuff up and hopefully not crashing - like I tend to do. I love this map and I\'m really warming up to the whole flying thing. Oh, but guess what!? I have to tell you guys this. I actually managed to fly out to one of the large pads out in the distance without blowing myself up. AND ... I landed the ship!!! (See the last three screenshots.) That\'s pretty damn amazing for me. LOL Of course, the ship ended up exploding anyway ... but I remained unscathed! WOO! By the way, I totally credit Shroom with my ability to land now.

and an early demo, at that. You might recognize a few features from other mods. There\'s a profanity filter, like the one found with xMod. It also has RGB sabers, which offers quite a bit of variety. There\'s an illegal macro/script detection and deletion thingy. You can\'t use force while saber down (I\'m sure that feature can be toggled on and off), admins can teleport someone by name, not just by origins. So there\'s a lot of stuff here that should make admins very happy. :) There are new gametypes and all of the JK2 gametypes. There\'s an Anti-Lag system and there\'s a file that stores banned IP\'s, much like in the JA/JAR mod. Probably the coolest new feature is weather control. You can add lightning, rain and a sandstorm all at once. :) From what I understand, this is like, the mod to end all mods. ;) There are more gametypes that will be added and there\'s a ton of other stuff you can expect in later releases.

JKA Saber Hilt Pack (v2.0)

jka_28_hilt_pack.zip | 4.77 MB

for you to choose from. If you played JK2 then most of these sabers here will seem a tad familiar. I'll just give a few words on each saber. I will be listing them in order of the screenshots. Desann: We should all recognize this saber, carried by the most lethal lizard/dragon Dark Jedi thing. Enjoyed by many in JK2 and now available for JKA! Stinger: Can't say I've seen this saber before, but I'm not one to download many sabers to replace the default ones ... so ... yeah. It came with the Desann one, but I'm not sure who credit goes to for it. Seems like a fairly plain saber. *shrug* Strider_Fellowship: No info included on who the author of this saber is. It's a good lookin' hilt and will look better as a sword without the saber glow thing. Luke: This is a saber hilt from a pack by a guy who did none of the saber hilts either. Yeah. I'm thinkin' this is just Luke's saber. Then again, I don't pay much attention to the hilts. Oniwan: Before you even start, I know that looks like a typo, but it's not one by me! HA! That's what whoever made this hilt called it. It's his typo! Decent hilt. Dooku: From the same guy who gave us the Luke and Oniwan hilts, here's the Dooku hilt. Wildly popular, I saw this hilt everywhere in JK2. While it looks like good craftsmanship, I can't stand this hilt. Maybe because it's curved like that, I dunno. Personal preference, I guess. Yoda: The final hilt from the pack that included the last three hilts, this one is called Yoda. Though, I think it looks a tad too big for Yoda. Very plain hilt. Nazgul: And now onto the Lord of the Rings (LOTR) hilts. This first one looks like the kind of sword the Black Riders would carry. Dark in color, sharp at the points. Looks like it could inflict pain on someone no matter which end you swung with. Morgul: A dark city in Mordor, Morgul (actually Minas Morgul) had this hilt made with its namesake and I think it fits its name nicely. Small and unassuming. Glamdring: Ah, Gandalf's sword. It's large and regal and it just really has a presence about it. Nice lookin' hilt. Sting: This helpful little sword was given to Frodo by Bilbo. I do like this LOTR hilt. It has more personality and character than the other hilts I've seen so far. Strider: Strider's sword is big and shiny and quite masculine. Mmm ... Strider. Oh, right, back to the hilt. This is a nice hilt, and seems to be consistant with the other LOTR sabers. Ranger: I'm assuming this sword is fashioned after one that Strider/Aragorn carried, or belonging to one of his kin. It's a great looking hilt and is well worth the download just for this one, I think. Ring_Wraith: Another great LOTR hilt, made with the Ring Wraith in mind. The detail on this sword is lovely, but would be lost in gameplay. Morgul_Sword: Again we see another hilt with Morgul in mind, and its style is very much the same as the first one we looked at. Not much more to say about it. Black Widow: Oops. I kinda cut off part of the hilt there at the front. Well, trust me, this is a great looking hilt. One I may consider keeping myself. It's very evil looking. Yun: Some may prefer the simpler saber hilts and for those, I suggest Yun. It's a nice hilt, decent size, not too big or small, all chrome. It has a solid look about it - if that makes sense. Fierce Deity: And finally, the sword that was included with the Link model. This thing is huge. I mean, seriously. Use this sword and people will question what you're compensating for. No one needs a sword that big! And there you have it. One download ... 18 saber hilts. Is it worth the download? Sure, if you like variety. I would take too long deciding which hilt to use, so I'll stick to the base hilts. [/quote] So what can you expect in version 2? Some typo fixes, more hilts, and all hilts are now in one pk3. WOOHOO! *ahem* Okay then ... here are descriptions and screenshots of the new hilts: Ultimate: Frankly, I can't see why this hilt was named "Ultimate". The word implies something grand and perfect and for some reason, to me, big. It's a thin, small hilt and I do like it, though it's a bit plain. SaeseeTiin: I have no idea what the name of this hilt means, but it's a decent design. Nothing all that unusual about it, but it has a balanced look to it. Kenobi: A lovely saber that's just the right size for anyone. Very simple in its design. Silverbone: This hilt's appeal, for me, is in its clean lines, and smooth silver surface. It's a good size and has buttons. I like buttons. 3dberkoll: I remember seeing this saber and liking it. I'm unsure if it's what it appears to be - glass. I like the design and the concept of a glass hilt. 3dberko: This hilt has a shader on it that makes it seem to glow red from the inside. Love the idea of this hilt. Caladien: For those who believe size matters ... the Caladien hilt. Personally, I just don't like this saber - too big and unwieldy. It's a good looking hilt - just too much for me to handle. Guardian: Darn it. I cut off part of this one in the screenshot. Well, take my word for it, this is a nice looking, average-sized hilt. Love the silver and black. Diago: Grrr. Ran outta room for this hilt too. It's a great looking polished black metal hilt that keeps its design very simple and sleek. With 9 more hilts to choose from in this pack, why would you ever download the old pack? ;) Get this update for more hilts and a few bugs fixed (I think). Good work! ~AmosMagee

Clones

clonesfnl.zip | 1.97 MB

this skin pack is nothing short of extraordinary. Sure, they\'re clones, but they don\'t all have to look the same! The first one is a great looking skin with team support. The two team skins are what one would expect - your vanilla clonetrooper with some red here and blue there. Then there\'s the same clone as the default skin, but with this huge jetpack thing that\'s just very cool. You guys\'ll have to tell me what it does and where it\'s seen and stuff, cause I have no clue. The fourth screenshot there shows a trooper with another kind of jetpack and, dare I say it - shades on? Next is a another Fett look-alike, but without his helmet and another kind of jetpack thing - again, no clue what it is really. :) And finally, a bunch of other clones - another like the default, but with a jetpack and three like the team skins but in white, yellow and green and the last one is ... I\'m not sure what it is. So ... yeah. I counted four different taunts for the clones - all of which sound great. I\'m not sure Mars has ever submitted work that wasn\'t complete, so you can expect to find bot support here. I prefer this skin pack to his last one submitted - it seems to have more variety.

I have to say, this is a really nice pack from Jose, I say pack because there isn’t just a skin in here, but a little extra mod which also changes the staff stance, walk and run animations to something much better looking, rather than the strange waddle that the player perform with the base JKA staff animations. But not only that, there is also a staff hilt as well! Its great when some cool extras are thrown in! The skin itself looks pretty cool, and as the author says, is inspired by Revan and star Wars: The old Republic concept art. The belt/waist wrap especially is obviously inspired by Darth Revan\'s robes and the whole skin has a really nice Old Republic vibe to it. The colour scheme fits nicely too , though I’m not sure about the combination of the purple piping on the robe combined with the yellow waist sash for the blue team skin, personally I would have gone with a purple waist sash as the yellow really seems to clash... Not that I generally give fashion advice to the Sith of course! The only other thing that bugged be was the lack of bot support, but apart from that this is a really nice little package here from Jose Carlos. Apparently this was made in about 4 hours over pizza, if pizza helps you make stuff this good in 4 hours, damn I want whatever you had! :P [b]New Sounds:[/b] No [b]Bot Support:[/b] No [b]Team Support:[/b] Yes ~Nozyspy~

Royal Guard Pack v2

royal_guard_pack_v2.zip | 12.3 MB

dog95\'s bot support for said skins and bringing them over to JKA. Now dog95 is back with an update which adds an interesting Single Player mod. I should point out that you should only use one of the .pk3 files included here, as one of them is just the compilation mod from last time and the other; RoyalGuardWithDarkside.pk3 is the one that mods the singleplayer side of the game. What the SP mod does is switch round the characters in singleplayer, so that Luke becomes a Shadowtrooper, Kyle becomes Carnor Jax, Stormtroopers become Rebels and Cultists become Jedi. I suppose you could say it makes it like you are at an Imperial or Dark Side academy as opposed to Luke\'s Jedi Academy! Well, that’s it for the updates, so below I will paste in my original review from last time around about the original mod! ~Nozyspy~ [quote]Ever fancied pitting your wits against some Royal guard bots, maybe even spawning an army of them to fight? Well now is your chance! What this mod here does is take Eric Landreneau\'s classic JK2 Royal Guard/Carnor Jax/Kir Kanos skins and breathes new life into them by not only making them available for JKA but also adding bot support to them as well! If you want to use these skins in singleplayer there are console commands included in the readme that you can use to change your playermodel in SP. Not only that but dog95 has also added HOUOU\'s Katana Pack for that extra dose of realism! Even though this is mostly only a compilation pack, it is nice to see these classic skins in JKA and enhanced with bot support! Be sure to give this pack a download if you like the look of it! ;) [b]New Sounds:[/b] No [b]Bot Support:[/b] Yes [b]Team Support:[/b] Yes ~Nozyspy~[/quote]

DT's Dark Forces 2 Kyle

dt_kyle2_ja.zip | 1.14 MB

methinks. Why? Well, how many of them can say they use a whole new model? Not many. This Kyle model literally blows the old kyle out of the water tenfold. So, starting from head to toe, let's see what's gone on here. ...So, anyway, the head. There's so many things about this that puts the Raven Kyle model to shame. The overall head itself is much more crisp and smooth, and doesn't feel as jagged as the old model did. The nose is perfectly rounded off, instead of terminating in that pointy tip that some of you may noticed the old one does. The moustache is no longer grafted into the model, so people who inevitably reskin this will not have to contend with that ugly moustache blurring into their fresh faced characters. Now, the neck and torso, which also made me go "WHOA!" are a lot more vivid and lifelike. I've never really cared much for the old Kyle's shirt, as it felt grainy and generally unpleasing to look at. It didn't even feel like a real shirt so much as it did a bad texture. DT has changed that immensely, and the shirt now feels like it's an actual article of clothing instead of a texture applied to a generic body. You can see in the collar region where the flesh ends and the shirt clearly begins, and the difference is three dimensional, which is truly an excellent effect. The shoulder pad is no longer that hard and rigid piece of suck'age, but is now a nice and soft pauldron that conforms nicely over Kyle's shoulder. Guess what, skinners? I did some toying around and found out: [b]This Pauldron CAN be safely surfed off![/b] Intense, I know! O_o Kyle's belt now has a new addition that shoulda been here ages ago: THE OL' BRYAR PISTOL, resting in its holster. This too, and the belt, can be surfed off with no negative rammifications. I swear, I'm going to explode in awe. @_@; The pants didn't see much action model-wise, but the texture definitely speaks for itself. Very nice black pants. The boots are no longer those jagged clunky anchors but now they're slick leather boots in the purest sense. There was no expense spared here. All this, and I still haven't mentioned how amazing the textures are. DT, I can't believe you were able to effectively make Kyle's old grainy shirt look good. It's shocking. The skin textures were simply sublime, the pants, however dark they may be, are fluid and quite well done, and...I honestly should just stop talking before my feet spontaneously spawn high heels. XD Now, I feel like I gotta cover the extras. Rather than slap Kyle into a set of red or blue pajamas this time around, DT recolored the shirts accordingly, and they look good. They're appealing, subtle, and they get the job done. Now, there was no bot or NPC support added for the skin, and for good reason. This packet contains an extra PK3 that allows you to [b]replace your old kyle,[/b] and basically add the bot and NPC support for you. Sounds? Old JK2/3 voice, and not JK1. This isn't what I'd call a disappointment, since the old actor wasn't exactly the best in that department. Before I close out, I guess it's worth tapping on the subject of likeness. One of DT's objectives was to try and make this guy look like Jason Court, the full-motion video actor who played Katarn in JK1. The question is: is there a likeness? Ehh, I'm not seeing much of a resemblance here, but honestly, it doesn't matter. Even though it isn't a dead-on look of the actor, it *IS* a dead-on solid look of Kyle Katarn, both in Dark Forces II and, honestly, I'd say it could carry through JK2 and 3, and that definitely counts for something. I can see this staying in my base for as long as I keep this game installed, as it's simply the most beautiful recreation of Kyle Katarn I've ever seen, and will change the way I see Kyle(literally,) forever. Enough of this babbling. TO THE BANDWIDTH PITS WITH YOU ALL!

Mandalorians[/file]. Quite honestly, I'm left baffled, having no idea what to write here to encompass the awesomeness that seems to have struck me. This skinpack contains 20 different Mandalorians, each with team skins, custom sounds, npc support and a very high glowy-and-shiny factor. To quote the review of the previous version... [quote]A very solid pack for any Mandalorian fans, or, hell, just any fans of badass guys in armor or good skins[/quote] Mhoker seems to have taken the advice from the previous version to heart and added more detail and even better looks. My only possible gripe is about Ruusaan. Being the only female Mandalorian in the pack, she seems to still have default sounds, as opposed to the others. Seriously though, I'm very impressed. If you like Mandalorians or spectacular armour, go get it. It's worth every byte. ;) [b]Bot Support[/b]: Aye [b]NPC Support[/b]: Aye [b]New Sounds[/b]: Aye [b]Team Support[/b]: Aye (in fact, every one of these Mando's has team skins) -Caelum

Darth Malak's Lightsaber Hilt

malignant.zip | 1.94 MB

THEN, ANOTHER FILE CAME IN! This time it's Malak's hilt, apparently known as "Malignant" (BOOOOO >_> [b]*hurls an ear of corn at whoever named that hilt*[/b]) and this time, it's not so humble and plain: Hilt carved into a double-knotted pommel, a shaft flecked with gold, and a twin pronged emitter guard to effectively so the galaxy can see this guy liked him some fancy. So, another comparison shot for us, and...well, honestly, it looks like he's hit every detail, and even made the hilt look far more polished than in the picture. Well played, Templar =_> No graphical errors or defects as far as I can see, so once again, another potent submission by master SimonKTemplar, and a worthy addition to any KOTOR or saber enthusiast's collection. - Averus Retruthan

Starkiller Ultima Pack

23starkiller_ultima_pack.zip | 8.67 MB

allow context to interfere. The first change promoted is force power effects and animations, with lightning being the most noticeable. Electrical spaghetti.... of both the purple and blue varieties at your discretion! It all looks good.... provided you've got lightning level 3. Below that, you're going to be hitting enemies with a string of particle-accelerated black squares. Push 3 also gets a new animation, though it looks more like a quick Power Rangers muscle flex IMO... but it does remove the tacky bubble thing. Drain 3 now has your character striking a rather lethargic pose which I'm assured is related to Darth Vader's grip stance, but I don't see the correlation to be honest. Still on the subject of animations, the lightsaber and acrobatics departments got a little something too. The fast style has now been switched out with Tavion's one-handed style from Jedi Outcast. The idle stance for both fast and strong styles have been changed too (Twilek and Desann can be seen below modelling both styles respectively), both new idle stances are fine and dandy though the one attached to the fast style will throw up a lot of sparks from constantly grazing the floor. The same is also true of the new idle stance for the dual-bladed saber. They're not bad choices of idle stance, they just require some tweaking to remove their constant floor contact. A new roll sequence is in place, though it seems it's more of a dive-roll now, and the backflip is no longer Jaden Korr's patented Fetal Cannonball Special but is in fact a stylized backflip which you can see executed gracefully by just about any magical girl or Matrix character. The next few contents in this file are basically dependent on other mods, so unless you have those too you'll get limited results. An updated .sab file for AshuraDX's Galen saber and NPC support for Schrodinger/Unsunghero's Galen Marek model are both supplied. However, you will need to download both the saber and playermodel seperately. Rebels and stormtroopers are given the acrobatic abilities of the Reborns, which does at least give them a bit more longevity (all of three seconds), and the final pk3 file of note attempts to make the stormtrooper AI smarter by boosting it's reaction, intelligence, aim, move, evasion and aggression stats to 5... which doesn't actually make them smarter, it just makes them cheat like a Las Vegas casino owner. Eh. Can't possibly be more disappointing than the base AI so whatever. As a side note, the Dragon animation files have also been provided for the animators to have fun with. Definitive opinions on this file are impossible to form. With each individual component you're going to love it or hate it, because each component has been garnished with Marmite and then wrapped up in Marmite-flavoured duct tape. One thing that can be definitively said in this file's defense is that Mr Pwner-san has gone to the lengths of keeping things simple and letting people take their pick of the components as far as reasonably possible. It's definitely worth a look at least. -Mikouen

Galen Marek lightsaber V2+ bonus hilt

galenmareklightsaberv2.zip | 18.1 MB

frown. But from the looks of this it seems accurate enough to Starkiller's lightsaber hilt. I mean really who ever gets that close to the lightsaber hilt where they can actually tell the difference? I know I don't. Nevertheless, this is nicely accurate to Starkiller's saber, and not to mention it comes with an optional pk3 to make the hilt use the staff stance, so it appears as if he is using Marek's moves himself. This has no bugs that I can tell, so +1 on that. Secondly, there is lots of detail, right down to the little button's on the grip so +1 on that also. Thirdly, there is a handy pk3 that makes it so we can use the hilt more like it was in The Force Unleashed so +1 on that. In conclusion, this hilt is definitely base worthy for those of you that enjoyed The Force Unleashed and I know will stay in mine. Enjoy. [/quote] Version 2 is here! And boy oh boy is it a treat for the TFU fans. Anyone sick of just Starkiller's hilt being made? Well... Ashura has included another secret hilt... which is pretty dark side ;) and won't be much of a secret in a second. [b]Starkiller's hilt[/b] Nothing much has been changed here, just been given SP support that the SP players out there will like :P [b]Sith Stalker hilt[/b] Wow. Anyone played through the dark side ending of the game, and then used the sith stalker hilt all through out the second game you start? I didn't... :( Well, I chose the dark side ending, but I didn't use the Sith Stalker hilt. I seriously don't know why looking back on it now. However, now you lot can use it in Jedi Academy SP, created games and servers that allow unsupported hilts. Now, you know how I said that I didn't use the sith stalker hilt? I ended up having to search pictures on google, and oh boy this model is dead on. I couldn't notice any differences at all. The quality is amazing. Nothing much could be changed if you made a v3. Starkiller only had 2 custom hilts with the game, right? All the other discoverable hilts were like Obi Wans hilt, Vaders hilt, etc... only real thing you could add is single support for the sith stalker hilt, so some of the non-backhanded stylists can use it regularly. Other than that, fantastic job! Enjoy. ~Authuran

than his Dutch skin. Cons: That's about it. The youngling model was only good for proportion. Otherwise, in terms of dress, sounds, etc, this skin doesn't work too well. The sounds require you to have the youngling pack already installed. I think the only solace again would be the inclusion of TK-409'er's Knife and a MACOSX version for mac players.

Tatooine Outpost

tatooine_outpost.zip | 35.52 MB

author: [quote]This is a place where travelers going through the desert may stop for a drink, rest or other activities.[/quote] Eloquently said. Now what he didn't mention was how he made his atmosphere very well. I mean he's thought it out very well. From the ambient NPCs in the bar to the textures to the ambient droid parts strewn everywhere. This map works so very well in so many ways that you really can't lose with it. Bah, listen to me gushing. Enough with this, A BRIEF TEXTUAL PREVIEW I SAY! The exterior of the outpost actually looks like similar to the Skywalker homestead in Episode IV, save for some modifications here and there. Almost right from the get go you'll notice there are several control panels that can be activated. These activate a diverse medley of NPCs that you may have the pleasure of combatting. Once you enter inside via the dwelling, the exploration begins. Connected by hallways with machinery, wires, powerlines, and cracked surfaces, one can find the following: - Bar, complete with optional ambient NPCs(activated via panel outside entrance) - Prison Cells - Generator Room - Various machinery room(not sure what to call it XD) - Armory/Locker Room - Bedrooms - "Arena" with side bar. - Storage Chamber(s) All of these areas are so beautifully crafted I feel ashamed for condensing them. Now, onto some of the suggested areas for improvement: - The Music: Now first off, let me say that I have absolutely NO problem with the music, and that I honestly enjoy the fact that the author decided to actually go with crystal clear sound quality from a soundtrack versus using stock Raven sounds. In fact, I used to hate the cantina music, but now that I could hear it in a higher quality, I'm not so irked about it. What I AM irked about is that you chose to make the music a sound object versus actually making the background music. Why is this? Background music can be stopped with soundstop. Looping sounds, however, cannot. This proves to be quite a problem, as the only solution to fixing this would either be to delete the sound files in the pk3, or turn down your sound effects volume. Not a fun choice to make, especially since you have great music here. Now I understand what was being done here, and I can appreciate that from a certain viewpoint, but not everyone likes to listen to the map's music. In a V2, here is what I suggest happen: 1.) make the desert outpost music the primary background music. 2.) make the jukebox usable, and have the bar music toggleable. That way, you won't risk turning away players, not that I really foresee that being a problem. The only other problem I see: - Doors: Some doors lack ambient sound. Others don't open, and some SHOULD open. Well, by some, I mean the big cargo door could have been openable. As for the doors with nothing behind them, I suggest making them usable and have them play the locked sound when used. Either that or uh...you could put stuff behind them maybe? in a V2? Maybe? =_,o Other than that, those were the ONLY two improvements I noted, and even those were relatively minor in comparison to how malevolently magnificent this map is. I see a bright future and a lot of use coming out of this map, from many crowds, really. I needn't say anymore. The screenshots and Submit Unto Filefront button should do the rest of my job for me =_,= New Textures: Aye New Music: Aye Secrets to plunder: Nay Bot Support: Aye - Averus Retruthan

At last, I can use the ultimate Marek model to unleash my ultimate TFU-hulk-smash! NOW WITNESS THE PO-... aw, #*@!, I've already used up all my Garen Marek-related bashing on the other skins, models, and files that I've reviewed. I'm all out of material. Blegh, I guess it's directly on to the review. I'd just like to say before anything else in this review a personal note to HellKobra: TIE UP YOUR DAMN MODELS. There's dozens upon dozens of loose little miscellaneous parts on this model, from little boxes on the arms to straps on the torso and legs. Honestly, group the tiny little individual model parts together into a 'Leg' or 'arm' instead of just leaving it all separate like a jumble of Lego bricks. Not that it affects the ingame play in any way, it's just a all very confusing for us skinners to look at in the .skin file or in modview. I'm also guessing that if you grouped them together before weighting, then the actual weighting process would be easier since you wouldn't have dozens of things to connect to one bone. /endnote Now, the things that concern all of you little people. It's a fairly well done model, very accurate to what we all know little Mr. Marek to look like. We have the perplexing overabundance of leather belts, cloth strips, and torn clothing that the actual TFU model all bears. I don't understand why, but he chooses to dress like this. The skinning is all well done for the most part; it looks good, however it's not spectacular. More detail could certainly be put into the textures and make it look a bit sharper. Everything for the most part is just slightly blurry. Shrug. That's not to say there aren't little details because there are, such cuts beneath the ripped fabric or the blast marks on his metal collar thing. The face is done well and looks very much like Mr. Marek, but again we have the blurriness issue. Despite that however it is the highest quality skin of Mr. Marek that I've seen. Team skins are included, however they simply change the color of the loincloth that hangs down (I don't understand the loin cloth though. He wears pants. What's the point of it?) 2 new taunts are included however that is the extent of the new sounds. Kind of disappointing, but perhaps those were the only quality sounds he was able to find. Overall a nice addition to your vault of Galen Marek skins and models. This is what, the 12th or 13th you'll be putting in your base? Team skins - Ja. New sounds - Ja/Nej (Only 2 taunts, so kind of... but not really.) Bot Support - Nej. NPC Support - Nej. ~Laam'inui

Link (Twilight Princess)

Nintendo Wii and Nintendo Gamecube. Not much else to be said beyond that.[/quote] Personally I have only played a little of Link's latest adventure. From what I've seen this skin is very accurate. The main change from the old is that Link now sports a nice chainmail hauberk. All of Link's clothing has been updated accordingly and I must say it looks very nice. This skin does the origional a great justice and gives us all, in my opinion, the best version of Link so far to play with. Although in the event of a version 2 I would certainly like to see team skins, if not for the nostalgia of Links old tunics from the previous games. I will certainly be keeping this in my base folder. If your a fan of TLoZ or just like gender confused elves then I recommend you give this one a download.

Force Unleashed SP

force_unleashed_sp.zip | 9.59 MB

hilt model by HOUOU. There isn't much differance between basejka and this, however there are some things that are worth mentioning. First of all, author forgot to write in the readme that to be actually able to use "/saber" command you need to enable cheats first. After that, you can type "/saber sniper_bh" to get a backhand lightsaber with Starkiller's stance. The animations changed are stance, push, drain, lightning and grip as it would seem. Also I've noticed that grip was renamed into "Telekinesis" which isn't quite accurate (Because in Force Unleashed it's still called grip). The only bug that I could notice was that when you stand on a ledge, the animations go all crazy and weird so avoid those areas. As a nice finish I'd like to say that if you're a Starkiller fan and need a proper stance and saber mod that will get your JK3 a bit closer to the modern "Force Unleashed" game, you totally need to submit bandwidth for this file :) -Schrödinger

MGS - Snake Skin Pack

snake_pack.zip | 9.6 MB

by Graves, this skin pack contains a number of versions of Snake, as well as the character Big Boss. Seeing as I'm not versed in the ways of MGS, I will leave it to the experts to judge and determine accuracy. However, I will say this: The skins are outright superb. Even a non-MGS fan can appreciate the outrugged rugged and maverick supremacy of these skins, as they are marvelously textured, most notably in the flesh and hair regions. If I didn't know better, I woulda thought this stuff was ported from the games themselves, although I do know better =_= much better. Regardless, this combination of model and skinwork was just deadly. This really was a commendable job you did on these skins, Plasma O_o. One tiny error plagued the old snake skins: When looking from the front, you cannot see Snake's rogue hair in the back. Regardless, I daresay it doesn't take away much from the quality of these skins. Throw your bandwidth mercilessly towards it, should these skins be of interest to you =_=.

Cade Skywalker

cadeskywalker1.0.zip | 8.32 MB

Beaker Bongload brings us a Cade Skywalker skin! Unless you have read some of the Star Wars Legacy comics by Dark Horse, you probably wont know who Cade Skywalker is. I don’t really want to spoil the story for anyone who hasn’t read these great comics, so I wont say too much. ;) Basically the Legacy series is based about 130 years after the Star Wars Original Trilogy, and Cade Skywalker is a descendant of Luke Skywalker (the name is a bit of a give away I guess!). This pack contains Cade plus team skins, and also a separate .pk3 with a special Sith Lords Clan version. First off, having been reading the Legacy comics, I can say that this is a very accurate representation of Cade. Sometimes Star Wars themed re-skins don’t much resemble the character they are supposed to be, but this one is a fantastic skin that looks just like Cade, like he’s jumped straight out of the pages of the comic…and then into your computer screen! Also, the model the author has chosen to reskin is the perfect choice for this character. The team skins are also distinct in their own way, and not just versions of the same skin, with some blue or red bits. The hair, clothing and everything is different colours, which I thought was a very nice touch. The clan skin, as far as I could see, doesn’t actually have any clan references on it at all, so really it would be suitable for general use too, for people who like the style of that skin. Think of it more as a sort of a ‘tattooed evil Cade’! There was one problem I noticed though; put the normal Cade skin in your base folder and the normal Cade and team skins will be available in game. However, if you put only the clan Cade skin in your base folder, and when you select him ingame, the skin doesn’t work (at least it didn’t for me) it just shows the default Kyle skin. However, if you put BOTH the clan and the normal Cade skin .pk3s in your base folder, the clan Cade skin will replace the red team skin for the normal Cade. It’s not a big problem, but it is a bit of an annoyance if you want to be able to pick from all four skin versions ingame. Other than that, this is an excellent skin, and it gets a very big thumbs up from me! :thumbsup: Fans of the Legacy comics should love this skin, and it has appeal to a wider more general audience too because of its excellent quality. I highly recommend this as a download! Go on, what are you waiting for…download this skin you must! Use my Jedi mind powers I am!

Requiem Sanctuary

requiem_sanctuary.zip | 27.12 MB

I'll go through, room by room. You're likely to spawn in the garden, which I must say is exceptionally well decalified (Is that a real word? It is now!). Sprites have been used to excellent effect to give the garden a good variety of plant life without drastically decreasing the game's performance, and so long as you don't look too close they look great. They are just sprites, though, so don't expect them to look perfect. There's the usual Yavin trees, and a very nice palm tree, as well as four pwetty entryways each denoted by a symbol. First, let's go into the lightsaber section (marked by the crossed lightsabers icon). Upon entering this lovely hall, you'll notice the small water feature, which again is understated yet attractive. The three doors each lead to duel rooms which are quite stereotypical, but still fitting. Duel Room #1 is your typical Academy duel room, like the rest of the map it's finely crafted, but nothing particularly special. Your standard duel room for standard duels. Duel Room II is your standard Korriban room. Broken platforms over a precarious pit of lava, with all the architecture except said platforms carved out of the rock walls. Some minor flaws in this room, such as one or two texture alignments, but if you notice those, maybe you should pay less attention to the wall and more attention to the guy trying to cut your head off. This duel room is the only actual shared component from The Enclave to Requiem Sanctuary, it would appear. Those rooms are both unremarkable, though. Duel Room III, I like. A lot. It is by far the most elaborately crafted of the three, and has a much lighter, sanctuary theme to it. I get the feeling this is the "major" room, primarly for team duels and tournaments and such. The water features are perfectly implemented and look great compared to most waterfalls I've seen in this game - again, they're understated and clearly not meant to draw your eye but instead compliment the rest of the room. Water is a central feature, also implemented on the duel pad itself as a decal, and the finely-crafted pattering on the duel pad makes this a very stylish arena. Now, back to the garden and let's go to the rifle section (marked by rifle icons on both sides of the door).This passage was longer than the others, and I found myself involuntarily doubling back and looking for an elevator. What can I say, reflex from my times as a TJA student. Hehehe... This is a full-featured map-within-a-map. You could easily get away with putting this section out there on it's own as a 2-6 player FFA map without question. The shuttle is constructed entirely from brushes, and looks great despite the problems inherent to applying textures to irregular brush objects such as those fuel pods on the side. Great work on that, if I'd tried that it would've looked like a pile of bread dough. The Korriban temple acts as an armory, and is loaded with goodies on the inside. But, it's in the temple I found a glaring error! :o Yes, that's right, a wall textured with the "shader not found" grid. Okay, sure, so it's inside a wall and you'll never see it without noclip. Still, shoulda caulk'ed it. :p Roleplayers will love the control tower, fits the bill just fine, and the shuttle is explorable too (not much in there though). Back to the garden, and we shall explore the "Sun" room next. All I have to say about this lobby, is [i]damn[/i]. This is the kind of level design really reminiscent of a game I've played, but the name so horribly eludes me at this moment. It's nice, though. Major deja vu, however. If you take a left after entering the lobby, you'll come to a part-duel part-NPC training room. Nothing much to say, it's pretty, but relatively standard issue. Railings are a nice touch though, not many mappers take the time with such minor details. 'North' of here is the jump room, also standard issue. Totally disagree with the green rock texture used on the railing here though. 'South' of the jump room is the lounge, which is so "Oblivion meets Star Wars". Finely crafted, no visible errors, and the skybox pictures on the walls are a very nice touch. Back to the NPC room and right across the hall - ooh, samurai stuffs. Dojo! This'll be where you're taught ninja skills, eh? The Dojo, whilst most scenic, is disappointingly plain compared to the rest of the map. Ah well. Going through the sheltered door in the lobby takes you to a jump room very similar to the one in Academy v3. At the back is a lockable meeting room, which again is nice but understated. To the left and right are plain white and plain black duel rooms. No, I'm not screenshotting those. Use your imaginations! And finally, the rather impressive icon-less buildingfront to the north of the garden. One word: campus.Upon entering you will notice the great hall. Which is great. Very magnificent in scale and style. The door to the left will lead to the archive/library, where all the dynamic lights will make low-end graphics cards have a heart attack. To the right, is the bar. Frat party! :o Through the back of the great hall, we reach another long (and pwetty) hallway. First door on the left, medical facility. Nothing specific to highlight, it's standard issue. Second door on the left, prison block, which isn't so much. Averus would love this, it appears delectably evil. The walkway with lava pits on both sides? Lovely touch. Prison wardens desk? Nice minor detail. The door on the right, leads to another nice hallway, then to the council chamber. I adore the architecture in these rooms. Yavin-themed council chambers are rare, and when they do pop up they are almost never natural looking. This one is surprisingly close to achieving that status, though. Lovely patterning on the floor, the roof statue is beautifully crafted, it's all so elaborate yet so understated. And finally, right at the back. Another hall similar to the one preceding the council chamber (check out the gargoyle heads spitting the water - nice!). Beyond this hall is the final room, the grand meeting chamber. Again, understated, again, finely crafted. Error in here though - the large plus cut out of the southern wall allows you to see through the top of the hall roof. Bit of an oversight there. (Side note, I've seen an awful lot of those patchwork structures hanging from the ceiling, while playing [i]Guild Wars: Factions[/i]. I've spent the past hour trying to work out why those looked familiar!) See the screenshots for yourselves, don't rely on my half-arsed descriptions. You have to see it to truly know what's got me so praise-ful. You'll notice that during this review, I didn't really point out any flaws or errors. Why, you say? Because, they'd all been thoroughly searched for and fixed before submission, which is an extreme rarity and something which makes this job worth doing - not getting to review quality maps, but seeing first-hand that there are still people who go the extra mile to make them. This is the standard everyone else should work towards, and it's really not as hard as any of you think. I mean no offense to Xenon, but one thing I commonly hear, is people saying maps like this are in a seperate league to what they can produce. That is simply complete and utter crap. Everyone has the potential, the difference is that some - like Xenon, Szico, Virtue, Orbitius, to name just four of the many - work hard to reach that potential, whereas others just... give up. Look at how many maps Xenon has made - [i]two[/i], one of which was a collaboration - and you see that Xenon is the living proof. Work at it, and you'll soon find there's a lot more in your "league" than you think. Just because one cannot do something effortlessly, does not mean one is not capable of doing it. From what you see in-game to what's going on under the surface, I can honestly find no glaring flaws with this map that aren't either niggles, personal preference, or totally irrelevant. It's rare for so many themes to be mixed together, and obviously they don't look natural here, but still, they just... flow. The merging of said themes doesn't look artificial as such, it looks constructed. As in, "Yeah, we meant to do that when we built the place, it's part of the facility's design!" rather than "We randomly threw that in because we thought it looked cool!". The question I [b]know[/b] people are going to want the answer to: Is it an Academy v3 beater? That's a question I'm so very reluctant to answer. Both maps have their strong points, both maps have weak... Okay, yeah. Both maps have their strong points. I simply do not want to write off either Virtue [i]or[/i] Xenon, they've both created great works. However, if the two were to do a collab project... ;) This is a great map for multiplayer servers, be they clan, roleplay, training, or just chillaxing. It's functional, and it's heavy on the aesthetics, but the aesthetics could be a problem for those with lower end systems or for those who just want a functional map. Basically, it's all preference in the end. If you're into Academy maps, this is one you will definitely want in your rotation. Emphasis on [i]rotation[/i], because there are so many great maps out there now, anyone who can choose just one has some deep-seeded pathological issues. No kidding. A great follow-up to The Enclave, without question. ~Kouen [b]Bot Routes:[/b] No [b]Custom Meshes:[/b] Yes [b]Custom Textures:[/b] Yes [b]Custom Music:[/b] No

FN Tactical Shotgun

fn_tactical_v2b.zip | 831.52 KB

overwrites the flechette gun with a shotgun, both in first person and third person views. It still fires the same kind of shot and ammo, but with a new model and new sounds it really does make the gun seem more like a shotgun. It has one of the more typical flaws with this kind of weapon -- many of the sides stretch due to not being UV mapped properly. This is a very common mistake, so hopefully the author will correct this for future models. However in the grand scheme of things it won't be noticeable, so don't let it stop you from downloading this snazzy-looking shotgun! Two variants of this gun are included -- the typical black and a desert variant. Remember to only choose one![/quote]Most of the above review still applies, although there are a couple of important changes to note. First of all I labeled this as a JK3 mod instead of a JK2 mod -- it'll work in both (just like the last version), so JK2 players can still feel free to download it! One of the other big changes is that the desert version has been removed. I don't know why, but, eh, that's how these things go. To go along with that, the entire texture has been modified. I said the texture was [i]modified[/i] rather than being improved for a reason. While I do agree with most of you that it's definitely an improvement, it is also still completely photosourced from real images. This has its benefits and its drawbacks. It makes the model look more realistic, but it also can hilight just where the model is inaccurate. Plus you can't claim as much credit over the final product when you 'borrowed' the textures from a google image search. With regards to the 'bugs' mentioned in the v1 review, there is still some stretching in the UV map, which is unfortunate since that could have easily been corrected between the versions. It's not nearly as bad or as noticeable as in the first version, though, so that's a plus. To be honest, though, I'd remove the cocking sound from the firing sounds. It seems out of place since the player doesn't actually go through the motion. ~Inyri

KotOR Sabers

kotorsabers.zip | 4.09 MB

Republic-era saber would have looked like. There are seven seperate hilts here. The KotOR hilts - Bandon, Bastila, Jolee, Juhani, Malak, Vandar, and one original design - Revan. All are properly modelled, skinned, and shadered. some hilts have variations to them. Malak has a regular and a long saber. Vandar has a regular and short saber. The general hilts aren\'t the eye-catchers though. They\'re nice enough, but sort of generic. The Revan hilt is what takes the cake. There are single and staff variants, and all are beautifully modelled and designed. The single hilt contains light and dark variants, which are essentially the same hilt, only with the design reversed. The screenshots describe that perfectly. There\'s not really much I can say on these - the screenshots say more than words ever can. This is a great hilt pack, and if you\'re looking to expand your collection, these will be a perfect fit in there. Sadly, they don\'t built-in singleplayer menu support, which would have been great. But, as it is, if you want them in SP, you\'ll have to add it in yourself. Just one warning about the Revan hilts - they are very high-poly, so you should be careful about how many are on-screen at once, lest your FPS take a nasty fall. ~ Kouen

it won\'t move with the map lighting. Other than that, this hilt just seems like your run-of-the-mill saber hilt. No shaders, no nothing special, just a hilt. To me it just looks like any Jedi-ish hilt already out there, and it replaces the Arbiter saber so I wouldn\'t download it myself. I prefer adding new sabers to replacing old ones. The screenshot will really speak for the hilt. I prefer something with a little more flair, but if you\'re the conservative Jedi type then give this hilt a download. Its chrome finish may not glint in the sun, but it looks alright. ~Inyri

Cybernetic Maul

survived his bisection and fall into the shaft on Naboo and was fitted with cybernetic legs. His hunt for the only person to have defeated him, Obi-Wan Kenobi, began.[/Quote] This revamped Maul, while non-canon, is still pretty intense. Can you imagine facing a foe you were certain was dead, yet he returns, and more menacing than ever? I can, mainly because it happens to me all the time. But honestly, this model is decently done. The structure and the skin are both decent. He even has some pretty well done sounds that I'm assuming were done by a friend. I almost thought it was Maul himself O_o. My only qualm lies in the face. NO ANIMATION =_=, how foul. Maul needs to at least bare his nasty, and now pry nastier, yellow teeth. Minus my qualms, this release is pretty nice. My only suggestion would probably work on the face. I'm sure plenty of others have complaints, but personally I express no care. A fine job, and I do believe this merits the Retruthan Seal of Approval. *Stamp* Bot Support:Aye NPC Support:Nay New Sounds:Aye Team Support:Aye - Averus Retruthan

Temple of the Elders

temple_of_the_elders.zip | 17.33 MB

Darth NormaN map, after all, and since it was once again made for a mapping contest it is of the highest quality. This map comes backed with everything it should: bot routes, new textures, new shaders, and lots and lots of dynamic glow and environment effects. As a result this map may play a little choppy for some, especially if you have dynamic glow on. My laptop has not chugged on a map as of yet, until this one. I was running at about 10 fps outside with dynamic glow on. With glow off it\'s significantly better, but doesn\'t look as pretty! Which makes me sad, because I like pretty. However players with a decent rig should be fine with this map. The map itself is a temple, of the ancient variety. Overgrown, a little caved in, and somewhat forgotten, this temple provides the perfect atmosphere for an intense duel, or a no holds barred free-for-all. It has full bot routing, for those hectic bot matches everyone loves, and while relatively small compared to many free-for-all maps, it\'s plenty large with no worries of getting lost. The foggy and rainy atmosphere adds to the mood of the map, giving it the perfect setting. The music also enhances the mood. It\'s definitely worth a look, if not an immediate download. A nice break from all the industrial-looking maps! [b]Bot Support[/b]: Yes [b]New Models[/b]: Yes [b]New Textures[/b]: Yes [b]New Music[/b]: Yes ~Inyri

Star Destroyer II

stardestroyer_ii.zip | 4.31 MB

taken, I think he actually rebuilt the whole thing! This map contains all the standard features - hangar, dorm room, catina, prison, command deck, random room with cages holding wildlife(?), a nice bit of external flight space, and a crapload of corridors. Typical SD interior. I'll start with criticism. The shader error from the previous version is still present, and I doubt it's a shader clash - my base folder is empty. Some of the elevators take far too long to get to where they're supposed to be, which is a bad thing as it induces tedium. My third criticism, is the lighting - it's not uniform lighting, but it may as well be.There just isn't enough variation in the lighting to make it interesting. Bot support hasnt been added in this version, which is a shame. I also found some z-fighting on the outside which no one actually [i]playing the game normally[/i] would probably ever see - but, it's there! :p Onto the good parts - this map provides a great TFFA environment, since certain areas of this map can be used for some very interesting and strategic teamplay. The general design of the interior works very well, in addition to the exterior is very well built. Most of the areas are accurate to what the interior of a Star Destroyer would look like, too. There is one thing to be aware of - don't hit the button to open the hangar door while it's still opening or closing. This will result in it locking up until you restart the map. Every door in JKA and other Q3 engine games does that though, so it's no fault of the authors. Overall, this is a good map for those who like a bit of FFA or roleplay. Check it out - there's plenty of features in here to keep you amused for a while. ~ Kouen [b]Bot Support:[/b] No [b]New Textures:[/b] No [b]New Music:[/b] Yes [b]New Models:[/b] No [b]Patches:[/b] [file=62935]Star Destroyer II - Botrouting Patch[/file]

Stance and Animation Modification

stancesanimations.zip | 16.85 KB

uncomfortable and unpleasant, and don\'t mesh as well with the combat animations as the new strong stance does. Strong stance looks like like the normal medium stance, but it has that \"heavier\" look about it. I like it much better than the default strong stance. The real treat of this mod, though, is the blaster block animation, taken from one of the many katas. It looks really cool when you use it, and despite the fact that I don\'t like those other two stances I may keep it just for that. Whether or not you like the stances, however, is entirely a matter of opinion, so don\'t take my word for it - check it out yourself and see what [i]you[/i] think. ~Inyri

Lava Duel Map Pack

lava_duel_map_pack.zip | 2.26 MB

is testing out different techniques to learn of their effect. I can see each map progress differently. It\'s an honorable attempt to create simple maps that are still enjoyably playable by anyone. Each of them are small, fiery red lava maps intended for close-quarters dueling, except for the fourth one in the set, which gives you more room to move. Had these not been lava maps, they would be much less likable, but the author knew that this was his best bet to get people to download them. I know that they are simple starter maps because there are still simple aspects that lack. The levelshots do not work, and this is because it\'s not understood that although each map exists in a seperate file, they are not necessarily seperate maps. PK3 files are treated similarly to the way that they would be treated if you took every single PK3 file in your base folder, extracted it into one place, and then zipped it back up again as one single PK3. The levelshot folder of the maps contain what are supposed to be the splash screens, but they are named \"shot00[i]xx[/i].jpg,\" which is not telling the game to what map it is regarding. If I extracted all the maps to one place and zipped them up as one PK3, the levelshot folder would just contain a bunch of anonymous screenshots. The solution, of course, is to name the splash screen levelshot picture files the name of the map so that the game can identify to which one each shot belongs—map \"lava_duel\" should have a levelshot named \"lava_duel.jpg.\" Another simple essential that was missing was good music to fit each map. Default music was used, default music that just didn\'t go with them. The only music that barely fit with the map was that which was applied to lava duel two, which I think was the rancor scene music from the under-rated \"Return of the Jedi.\" The other maps used curiously cheerful music. If I were pitted against a deadly enemy across a narrow catwalk above spitting fires of lava, would the game do well to accompany me by playing this happy, leap-for-joy music? The best music that could fit would sound energetic, epic, and dangerous. \"Battle of the Heroes\" from the Episode III soundtrack might work. All textures were default, which is okay for maps like these. It still looks all right just in these maps to use Raven\'s monotonous \"blah\" textures. Consequently, and also because no new music was added, these four maps are fitted into 2.25 MegaBytes. That\'s pretty small for maps, and could really serve as quite useful if dial-up users got tired of the default maps and wanted to play against some bots in a lava pit. From a mapping quality standpoint, one of the most unattractive flaws with these maps is that lighting is faked. Shadows are unnatural, dark black blobs, and when I walk into them, I don\'t actually walk into a shadow; I walk onto one. However, the author did execute one nice effect, which was that whenever the map restarted for another duel session, rocks would fall from the ceiling. This added to the atmosphere of the map which was originally so poor due to the smiling music. I liked the fires decorated around the map, and I liked the narrow catwalks which really added to how careful you had to be when dueling here, but I did not like that the author apparently didn\'t learn how to make the lava appear to flow until the third map in the pack, without going back to parts one and two to give the lava in those some life. A few things seemed randomly placed for only moderately successful effect. Certain parts of the maps, specifically the ceiling in map three, tried to be circular but instead achieved an angularity that just didn\'t look good. I really think, even if the FPS got taken down, that curves would have been better here. Also in map three, a statue in the lava and bones in the catwalk were placed there, but they just didn\'t make sense there, because there was only one of each. There was no symmetry. The largest problem with maps three and four is that their more expansive nature causes them to lose the immediacy of the danger that was achieved with maps one and two. Other than that, I can see these maps as great for training. The conventional duel wouldn\'t work, but if you need practice for better footing without regards to advanced mapping, I suggest you give this pack a look. —Ra-Kom

Movie Abandonment Skinpack

movieabandonment.zip | 41.2 MB

many, it seems strange to give it a negative rating. However, quality has greater precedence over quantity, and most of these skins don't appeal. They come from all sorts of authors, some of the credit being rather confusing. The author included fourteen readmes from other authors, and it would be quite the collection if the skins just looked nicer. The author(s) used what the readme author Jolt calls a "tailoring" technique, "fitting existing textures to different models." I'm sure there might be a great skinner out there who can call his work that, but these aren't professional tailoring jobs. They're inconsistent: sometimes my left sleeve is two inches too short and my right four inches too long, but sometimes I get really lucky and they seem to fit just right; however, in my and perhaps many other file reviewers' experience, there is probably "no such thing as luck" (Obi-Wan Kenobi). I will give the author credit for compiling so many skins and having a select few of them look good, but it would have been smarter to submit only the decent ones. "Extra weequay" skins were included that aren't bad but, like many of the skins here, are unnecessary; the term "extra" is fitting. One of them has an icon that depicts the weequay with the things hanging out of his head, but there were none. The other had them. That is the only glaring problem, aside from the apparent lack of interest. Another case where the icon didn't match the model was any of the rebel skins, which were depicted in the icons to not have vests but had them in-game. Perhaps it was the fact that the author included so many skins that it all got over-loaded that messed up this experience, but that comes as a good thing, really, because you are given a lot of choice. However, most of these are still too dry. The Leia skins, who were perhaps a bit too quiet, and the Padme skin both seemed to be based on the same model, and this seemed to cause them both to suffer. They're both ugly, and they are the opposite in the films. Much more care could have been taken here to make the faces look decent and the clothes slightly more presentable. There was one Luke model upon which the skins were based that looked good and one that looked bad. The bad one, I believe, was one of HapSlash's earlier models. He obviously matured as a modeler dramatically after that mishap, because the model does not look like Luke the way it should. A shape of the head, or the hair, does not fit, and this model was used for "Luke_B_Pilot" and "Luke_B_Hoth"; I would avoid these, as they also seem a bit buggy (it was a JK2 model). The Luke model that I liked was the one used by the "Luke_Bespin" skin, whose shape and hair were both much more fitting, even if the hair was too shiny for the film Luke's sandy hair. This Luke I would view as entirely usable, casually. I'm not sure of the Landos included in this skin pack look as much like Lando as they should, but the skin jobs themselves weren't horrible. I thought that "Lando_Bespin" was monotonous with the dull, too-smooth texture used for the shirt, but I didn't mind "Lando_General." As a matter of fact, I would prefer the "Lando_General" in this skin pack over the default Lando. The deceitful Lando in his blue clothes I disliked in "The Empire Strikes Back," but I like him a lot better as General Lando in "Return of the Jedi." I admit that I had never heard of a Klatooinian before testing this skin pack, but the author should not have included such an obscure species from the [i]Star Wars[/i] Universe, because after looking him up on Wookieepedia, I found that the Klatooinian skins included were not accurate enough to the real thing for it to be recommendable. I liked it better before knowing that it was a race that was enslaved to the Hutts by the terms of the Treaty of Vontor. (I got scared while reading about them, because they seemed curiously [i]Star Trek[/i]–like in their origin story.) Now, about those Hutts. This skin pack includes a Hutt, a particularly famous, disgusting Hutt named Jabba. But the Jabba that I know from "Return of the Jedi," one who laughs at a thermal detonator and at a decoration of a cynical carbon-frozen human, did not appear in this skin pack. Instead I got what looked like a man poorly dressed up for (today, which happens to be) Halloween running around in a sac, and I can quite clearly see where his feet are in that sac. And the face: Why the long face? He's perhaps— You may disregard this comment: I was just eating a piece of candy (Happy Halloween), and it just flew out of my mouth. I do not know why. I am sorry for the interruption. —more of a horse now in his overly long face, which should be much wider to be proportionally accurate. The original Han Solo model released for Jedi Outcast was never really adequate for me, even though a lot of people liked it at the time. Something was distinctly wrong with his face; I think it might be too fat. The "Han_Hoth" skin included in this pack doesn't seem to bring enough of a difference to the model to be of any interest. The costume design in "The Empire Strikes Back" was a little bit dull compared to the others. The skins have fears in how far they go to make a difference, and they are quite clear. The "Grand_Moff_Tarkin" was a miscalculated skin, one that—I think—tried to be the younger version seen at the breathtaking end to the heavily flawed masterpiece "Star Wars: Episode III—Revenge of the Sith," but instead imitated a plastic doll. It's face too shiny and undetailed, I see no reason why anyone would want to use this spongy toy. Now where this skin pack really, really went off was with Dengar. Dengar was one of my favorite bounty hunters, probably because he had such a depth portrayed in his short story "Payback: The Tale of Dengar" in the book [i]Star Wars: The Tales of the Bounty Hunters[/i]. Dengar can only feel three emotions: rage, hope, and loneliness. This Dengar skin could not even give Dengar the respect of the only three emotions with which the Empire left him; all I see is loneliness—loneliness sitting inside a malformed suit (and messed up animations not noted in the readme, I might add) with a wax mask on his face, melting off in the sun. That's how it looks. At least the skin managed to get me to pity it as much as I pity the real Dengar, but for different reasons. And the last icon that I found in my player menu (not all the skins in the pack seemed to show in the menu) was the "ATST_Driver" skin. No model showed up under the vest if you looked at it from a certain angle, but other than that, and the apparent lack of accuracy to the film drivers, I liked this skin. There was something about the taunt combined with the glasses that made it cool. I do not understand how a Jawa skinned to the colors, tones, and textures of a fresh-faced Anakin Skywalker makes him that. "Anakin_CIS" (Anakin Cold in Space, whatever that means) is supposed to represent young Anakin from the flawed yet under-rated (overhyped) "Star Wars: Episode I—The Phantom Menace," but where is the resemblance? The sounds weren't even fixed to not be Jawa sounds. No one, to my knowledge, has created an accurate preteen Anakin yet. Hey, he was a good kid. I will not bother to compare the original Imperial model with the "Rax Joris Young" skin; I shouldn't need to. They look mostly the same. Can't we have some creativity here? And the "Rebel Hoth," who was given goggles that were actually just textures painted right onto his head, making them look like tattoos (I am shuttering at the thought of them), with the Hoth suit "tailored" to him, is just so unsatisfying. The Imperial model has an attraction for the drab. What am I going to do with this skin pack.... It also included a decent "Vibro-Ax," which I need not explain. You've seen these before. I liked a few of these, but I felt cheated at the end, because I had downloaded such a large and comprehensive skin pack, which must have required a lot of work just for the sheer number of skins here, yet not one of them is one-hundred percent there. Sir, as I said before, the lesson of the day is "quality, not quantity." —Ra-Kom

model as compared to Mars' usual work. The skin was only so-so, and parts of the model deformed horribly. I know from experience that those particular sections are some of the hardest to weight (the shoulders, especially), but I would've expected something cleaner from an experienced modeller like Mars. As for the skin, the hair looks very unrealistic, the hands are a completely different skintone from the face, and the face is blurry. The model is quite good, but it's screaming "rushed!" at me. That said, it's still one of the best Anakin model's I've seen. And trust me, with all the reskins lately I've seen a lot of them. Because we are the lucky group we are, Mars has given us bot support, npc support, and movie sounds. There's team support, but the team skins are the same as the default skin. He also gave us Vader, to go with Anakin, so you can enjoy that model again! This isn't the best work I've seen from Mars, but it should certainly tide many of you over who have been waiting for a good Anakin model.

Boko's Dark Kyle

dark_kyle_final.zip | 2.2 MB

black body armor with gold accents, and corresponding color coordination for the team skins. Generally, each time I've seen this done with Kyle, it always seems to be lacking something. With this skin, however, it is IMHO the definitive Dark Kyle. The gold on the belt and shoulder pad seems to be that final touch needed, combined with the musculature of the armoring. My only complaint is that the level of detail and sharpness on the accessories, head, and hands is in contrast with the softer tones of the outfit. Perhaps toning down the detail would fix that, because adding more detail to the body would make it too busy and no longer KISS-ed. The biggest issue with this skin are the team versions. They appear to me to be following a more animated/cartoonish styling, and have very little realism or texturing comparatively. I would still however suggest using this skin to replace any other Dark Kyles you have, or snagging it to add to your collection. [/quote] This version is definetly a step up from the original version. It sports a shiny new shader, some updated textures, and the team colors are presented in a much better way (rather than the whole skin becoming a tint of red/blue, only the gold bands on the shoulder turn to red/blue). This skin comes fully loaded with Bot Support, NPC Support, Team Colors (as mentioned above), Single Player Support, and last but not least, a .pk3 that replaces the old, boring, default Kyle in JA to this Dark Kyle! :D This skin has a permanent place in my Base folder. Bottom line: A big step up from the original. If you're looking for a change from that boring old Kyle, pick this up NOW.

Kyle Katarn SP

kyle_sp.zip | 9.13 MB

twist. The author has given us the choice to replace the original Kyle NPC with Jaden, in case you don\'t like talking to yourself. At first I was thinking that\'d be really neat, but even though it\'s better than having two Kyles you still have the problem of hearing Kyle\'s voice coming out of Jaden and Jaden\'s voice coming out of Kyle. Also it seems he forgot to add the Kyle menu skin, so you get a very untextured Jaden when Kyle\'s briefing/debriefing you on your missions. I was happy to hear that Kyle has the right combat sounds, though. I was worrying we\'d be hearing Jaden grunts as well. ~Inyri

Nina: Undiscovered Secret

undiscovered_secret.zip | 21.67 MB

completed. I\'m not saying that there is no ending - I\'m sure there probably is. I just didn\'t play that far into the game. I enjoyed what I did explore. The mod has some combat here and there, but more than anything there are little puzzles that you need to solve to complete your objective. It\'s a tad predictable, but satisfying because it\'s not too hard. Now my biggest issue with this mod is the dialogue. Not only is it TERRIBLY written (okay, there were a few funny things here and there, but generally it could\'ve been better), but there isn\'t any voice acting. So make sure you have your subtitles on before playing. This really ruined it for me. I couldn\'t lose myself in the story. And the text was too fast, at that. Is it still worth a download? Absolutely. I think you\'ll enjoy the mod itself. It just would\'ve been nice if they had gone that extra step and gotten some people to record the lines and had someone else go over the dialogue. Great job, anyway, though! ~AmosMagee

Deathstar Trench v2.0

deathstar_trench_2.zip | 10.58 MB

place, you can choose between the X-Wing, A-Wing, and Y-Wing. You then go through hyper space, and arrive at the Death Star. What could be better? Your opponents are waiting on the other side, that's what. The other team has access to all kind of Tie Fighters, even a real strange looking one. Look at the screen shots below, I’m sure you will be able to spot it. That one is my favorite. You can choose the vehicle you wish to have in the game, by going to one of the control panels. A name will appear on the screen, it tell you what it spawns. You can then spawn it, and start flying it around. Be careful if you choose a rebel vehicle. There are turrets on the Death Star, that would love to put a hole in you, if you know what I mean. ;) Don’t let your mind wander though, if you spawn in one of the hangers in the Death Star, make sure you are in a vehicle, when you exit the hanger. There is no air outside of the hanger, so you better be in a vehicle. Near the end of the trench, there is a hole on the ground. Aim at that and fire. You will see an explosion effect, and you get 25 points added to your score. I couldn’t really find any bugs in this map, which makes me very happy. I did though have trouble approaching the Y-Wing. Every time I got near, it shot me. :PThe author also included version 2 versions of this map. The first version just has the basic ships. The second has all the ships. The author also put the proper credits in his Readme, even giving credit to the vehicles. You need to unzip all the .PK3’s from the .zip. One is the map, the others are the vehicles that the maps uses. Great Job Dude! Bot Support: No New Textures: Yes New Music: No Game Types: FFA, TFFA -Airm

Bruce Lee Skin Pack

bruceleebetaja.zip | 9.57 MB

new model for the guy. I also imagine his body is a bit smaller than this. I think the author used the Solid Snake model. In any case, it\'s a decent effort. The face has more changes than anything else. What really, really bugs me in the shirtless skin is that the skin tones really don\'t match very well. It looks too painted on and his face is a completely different colour than his body. All other skins included in this pack are very plain and a bit boring. There is bot support and there are team skins. There are some new sounds, but it seems that only the taunts worked for me. Some of the pain sounds and death sounds gave me an error of sorts. Maybe it\'s just me, I dunno. Bot Support: Yes Team Colours: Yes New Sounds: Yes ~AmosMagee

Olts Male & Olts Female

oltsvfinaljk3.zip | 19.62 MB

it\'s nice to see someone add to that selection menu. Especially when they add a whole new character altogether. This is the Olts Male. OLTS is a clan, and Lord Vili is the author of this wonderful addition to our site. Included are three new heads, seven torsos and four legs. I didn\'t show every possible combination here, of course, but you get the idea. All of the skins look great and you have several colors to choose from. The detail on the heads is fabulous, though none of the options really look very Jedi to me. Every choice here has a dark, Sith feel to it. There are no new sounds, but with everything else that the author has included here, I\'m not in the least disappointed. If you\'re looking for more variety and you like that Dark Side look, definitely download this file. Great work, Lord Vili! I can\'t wait to see what else you send us![/quote] Lord Vili strikes again! First of all, go ahead and toss your old OLTS file into the recycle bin. This skin pack has both the male and female OLTS races. There have been several additions to the male race so now there is a total of 11 heads, 11 torsos and 7 legs to choose from. The female OLTS race has a mere 3 heads, 5 torsos and 3 legs. But it still gives us more options, so that\'s always a good thing. Have fun playing with the combinations of these heads, torsos and legs by Lord Vili. And once again, I can\'t wait to see what you\'ll make next. :D ~AmosMagee

Lost Temples Map Pack

fctlosttemples.zip | 4.92 MB

all that impressive when you first spawn into it. I wasn\'t quite sure what to expect, but it seemed a bit too bland. I approached the statue in the center and and thought that was kinda cool, but meh. So I explored some more. And I saw these three portals that apparently went to different rooms - I certainly didn\'t expect to be taken to like, another world. :) I won\'t tell you about each place because they\'re also the duel maps included in this pack. One very cool feature for each arena is that you can lock it by pressing a button near the door to lock it for a full minute so no one else can enter. Korriban Tomb - A very colorfully lighted map with large angular pillars, a light fog throughout the whole map and some nice detail. There are small rooms that surround the large area for dueling where a throne sits. Yavin Temple - A very high ceiling here, as is the case with most Yavin temples. Tall windows line the walls and there\'s a structure that obstructs the area, which always adds some interest to a duel. Praxeum Temple - Probably my favorite of the three duel maps. There\'s a low-ceilinged room with triangular pillars with blue lights embedded in them. It\'s a dark map, but take the elevator up to a brighter, blue room with large round pillars and familiar textures. Bonus map - There this extra map thrown in that is great for duels or FFAs, I\'m thinkin\'. It\'s just a big colosseum with some very nice details, but also some bland and boring textures. I have mixed feelings about each of the individual maps, definitely the Praxeum Temple being my favorite. It\'s a concept close to that of the JK2 favorite Cloudshark. It\'s perfect for those JA FFA servers where people mostly duel (well, the FFA map, that is). Great work here!

Sabergirls Collection

favorite...and no, it isn\'t a \"nude\" model.) A couple use the Jedi Leela model, but all in all these skins are all really, really good (well, compared to other skinpacks I\'ve seen, anyway). Anywho, this is worth checking out if you\'d like to see some new skins for a change, and they\'re all pretty unique in their own right. I\'d g
