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

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]

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.

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!

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.

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

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.

Human Female Skin Expansion Pack

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

Enhanced Saber Realism

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

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.

Revan Dark Star Wars Hilts

revandark_starwars_hilts.zip | 7.74 MB

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

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.

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~

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-

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

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.

Warrior Shadow Trooper - Flying Man (Author's own design) Jedi - Engima Now, onto the reviews. [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. The torso down has had the colour turned to blue and the saturation turned up, which I am guessing is why the belt has all those multi-coloured pixels. No new sounds. Mr.Freeze = Blue, Rosh = Blue. 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. I thought it looked pretty good... until I saw the two letters GW (green warrior) printed on the back of his torso. This ruined it in my opinion, but some of you others may like it, I don't know. 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. (The symbols and the design of Flying Man remind me of LightSource's Vampire Batman) [b]Enigma (Batman's Villain):[/b] I couldn't find any images of him so I had to rely on my poor memory of him from a film... There's not much to say about this skin; Almost-Solid green overalls with a lot of black question marks around his clothes, red hair, and green markings around his eyes. [b]Enigma Red:[/b] Same as above but with a red torso and orange trousers. [b]Enigma Blue:[/b] Same as default but with blue overalls. No new sounds. So, I think it was generally okay, but the printed words on them dropped it down.

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!

\"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.

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

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

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!

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

This is probably the best one around, but as far as i know it doesnt support Doom3 as of yet. ~Szico VII~

OJP Enhanced

ojp.zip | 23.61 MB

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(

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~

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!

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

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.

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~

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.

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

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~

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

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

looks pretty god, and I only have a few issues with it. First off is the face. While it may not look like superman, it looks kind of...freaky...meh. Freaky can be good. 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!

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

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

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. So be sure to download part 1 of this map pack! Bot Support: Yes New Textures: Yes New Music: Yes Game Types: FFA, Duel ~AmosMagee

Realistic Dead Bodies

don\'t disappear as they normally do. So if you feel the need to have a big pile of dead Jawas sitting around for all eternity, this is the mod for you. This mod changes more than just the corpse removal time, however -- it edits your autoexec.cfg and adds in some other goodies, like dismemberment probabilities and knockback, and it automatically turns cheats on (so it can perform these commands, obviously) so keep this in mind if you plan to use it. ~Inyri

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

EA Obi Wan Kenobi

had its share of improvement. Now I'm no expert in this field, but it would appear that our authorial friend here decided to photosource Mr. Kenobi's face. 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. Poor lad forgot to change the sounds.cfg XD Another oddity to note is that the pk3 contains two additional PK3s O_o One built for SP Support, and the other being just a general skin. I wouldn't have suggested doing it in that manner, but I supposse if you have Winzip experience, you can oust the pk3 you do not wish to have. Overall, the skinpack is visually appealing I suppose. Personally, I don't see myself using it, but perhaps you the masses will enjoy it =_=. That being said, I think you should all immediately submit bandwidth and then pay Averus $50 US Currency or your country's equivilant =_,=.[/quote]This minor update fixes both the sounds as well as fixing the nested PK3 issue.

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! Now all someone needs to do is make some Tron Disk melee weapons! *wink wink, nudge nudge* ;) [b]New Sounds:[/b] Yes [b]Bot Support:[/b] No [b]Team Support:[/b] Yes ~Nozyspy~

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!

Now, when I tested the model at the resolution I play at, the nose was a bit angular, but it still looked amazing. The team skins are as you'd expect, so I didn't take screens of 'em. You may recognize the author's name because he's also the creator of the Diablo Barbarian model, the Old Ben model and Londo (from B5). All of those models were just as impressive as his newest submission. There is bot support included and several taunts to choose from. If you're looking for a model to add to your collection, this is definitely a must-download. This will probably be used by many people - so get it.

Jaden Addon Pack

lumberjack and using his lightsaber to cut trees down and make bridges, he enjoys being a wooden plank and one of the worst characters in the history of Star Wars. 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.

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.

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~

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

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!!

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

The pack also include the hilts to be used in Single Player, which I\'m sure will please you SP fans. All round good saber models here, I\'m really impressed with a few of them and may even consider uploading them to my clan’s server. Trauma also made these on his Birthday!

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.

now have a wider selection of heads, faces, torsos, and legs, all with their own unique qualities.

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

Galactic Alliance Jedi Armor v3

ga_jedi_armor.zip | 23.11 MB

which include glowy bits (eeexcellentt...) and shiny effects (as well as excellent specular shaders!) for added depth as well as four new heads! 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! Once again an excellent skin pack from hollywood_g1 and well worth a download! :D [b]New Sounds:[/b] No [b]Bot Support:[/b] Yes [b]Team Support:[/b] No [b]Customisation Support:[/b] Yes ~Nozyspy~

Starkiller's Lightsaber

starkiller_saber.zip | 1.59 MB

Edition. The modelling work here is fantastic, the model is detailed, high-poly and well made. The texturing work is also excellent, with plenty of textural detail crammed in there as well. Bear in mind of course that this is the Ultimate Sith Edition version of Starkiller's saber hilt. This is the hilt he uses if he turns to the Dark Side (as far as I am aware) and the hilt is styled accordingly with some spiky appendages and an overall sharp and painful look about it. As I said Houou has done an excellent job of modelling this saber and what is more he has also included both a normal and backhanded version of the saber from which you can take your pick. Overall excellent work here, this is one mod that I honestly can't fault! Keep it up Houou, I look forward to seeing more from you in the future! :) [b]New Hilt Model:[/b] Yes [b]New Sounds:[/b] No [b]New Effects:[/b]No ~Nozyspy~

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

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

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!

Olts Male & Olts Female

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

Cloned Starkiller

starkillerrr.zip | 5.61 MB

however, take exception to those [i]ridiculous[/i] boss fights and the way that the camera goes into such a fixed position that your controls somehow get all mixed up, you press right and you find yourself going in the opposite direction that you expect to be going in and you end up not having any idea where you are going. Whoever was in charge of developing the boss fights for TFU should have the hounds sent after them! >.> But I digress! I am looking forward to seeing how the story progresses in The Force Unleashed 2, but until then the aptly named TFU2 brings us his take on the Cloned Starkiller that we have so far had but a few glimpses of. This skin uses as its base Hell Kobra's Starkiller model and I have to say that overall it isn't too bad. It does indeed look like the few pictures of the Cloned Starkiller's and his clothing that we have so far seen. However, the texturing needs quite a lot more work. Many of the textures simply don't fit properly over the model and when you look closely they look quite 'mashed up'. I'm not a skinner, so I don't know how one goes about properly matching up all the textures, but I do think this skin needs some more work in that department. Not to worry though, the author is still new to skinning and I am sure he will continue to improve with every skin he releases! :) The skin does include team skins (although the player icon for the default skin seems to be missing?) which are differentiated by the cloth hanging from the belt (being either red or blue). However this is another area which needs working on, as the parts around the cloth that should be transparent, aren't. This means that there is a white outline around the cloth where it should be transparent. Again though, this is decent work from a new modder and I look forward to seeing more from you in the future mate! Keep on improving and maybe bring out a v2 of this skin! :) [b]New Sounds:[/b] No [b]Bot Support:[/b] No [b]Team Support:[/b] Yes ~Nozyspy~

Good Jawa

goodjawa_v2.zip | 3.29 MB

are they even ‘good’? This is a paradox indeed… Never mind, there is plenty of time for paradoxes later! :P Here we have a v2 of GoodJawa’s earlier ‘Good Jawa’ skin, which was reviewed by Dretzel late last year. For this version it is good to see that GoodJawa has fixed the issues mentioned by Dretzel in his review, such as the textures not lining up on the back of the clothes. He has also included two other skins to make this a skin pack; Evil Jawa (an evil Jawa, of course!) and Young Jawa (based off one of the Jawa’s seen during the scene where Owen Lars buys 3PO and R2). The Evil Jawa and Young Jawa skin unfortunately don’t have team variants, which I would like to see if there is a v3. But the default Good Jawa skin does have team skins however. As I said above, the textures on the back of the skin now line up nicely, which is a big improvement over what it was like before. The skin is fairly simple, but I actually really like the stripy pattern, especially on the red and blue team skins. The red one kinda looks like Dennis the Menace, only in Jawa’s clothes! My favourite skin was the ‘Young Jawa’ one though, as it really did look like the character from the film (there is a comparison screenshot in the .zip file). I do think though that this skin needs the yellow glowy eyes back, as they are just grey as they are on the other two skins, to make it even more authentic to the film version. I do think there is some room for improvement though, especially with the Evil Jawa skin. This is basically a much darker version of the Good Jawa skin. Personally I would like to see some extra features which make it look that bit more evil. Perhaps some glowy red eyes or maybe a Wookiee pelt on his back to make him look more crazed and dangerous! Also, it appears that some of the sound files do not work, as indicated by an error message that comes up on the console in game. Overall though a good improvement over the previous version, and a decent skin pack here. The ‘Young Jawa’ skin was especially good I thought. These skins could still do with some more work though, so I look forward to seeing what you make next GoodJawa! :) [b]New Sounds:[/b] Yes [b]Bot Support:[/b] No [b]Team Support:[/b] Yes (Only for the Good Jawa skin though) ~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~

RotS when I was watching it. The author states that this style grew on him after seeing RotS several times, and that in addition to modifying the core he brightened the color (and changed blue completey) and increased the resolution of the saber glow so it\'s more smooth. Yeah, I bet you smelled a gripe coming. All good mods have gripes. This mod is good enough, but I just don\'t like the glow. It seems to me like the author slightened the cores, pointed them, but left the big fat glow alone, and now it just seems too big. I\'d like this mod a lot better if the author went back and resized the glows to match the new blades, however that\'s my personal preference so you\'ll have to decide what you think for yourself. ~Inyri

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

SW: TOR Sith Lord Improved

swtor.zip | 3.98 MB

creation: http://jediknight3.filefront.com/file/SWTOR_Sith_Lord;107655 A devilish figure known as MrHunt has plastered a new face texture on this skin. Essentially, it was just a photosource instead of a custom job. Now it just looks photosourced. I'd say there was little improvement. 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. However, if you aren't planning on looking at the front too much, it's not a bad looking skin. Nothing more need be said.

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!

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!

Episode 3 - Mustafar

episode_3_mustafar.rar | 31.41 MB

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]

Darth Talon

darthtalon.zip | 3.97 MB

very familiar with this series or the character, but from all the pictures I could find, this skin is almost dead-on. This file is reskinned off the Female Twi\'lek Jaden model, and it works. But there is ONE problem...When she talks, you can see through her mouth and out the back of her head...ouch... New sounds have been included too, and they fit nicely. Though, the rolling sound was kind of annoying...Whenever I rolled she said, \"Hmmmmmmmm...\". But, just...don\'t...roll as much, and you\'ll be fine. And Sadly, Bot, Team, or NPC support were not added...But if you want them that badly, you can make them yourself. Overall, a nice skin, and one that will stay in my base folder.

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.

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

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~

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? Well, obviously! :P New Textures: Aye New Music: Aye Secrets to plunder: Aye Bot Support: Aye -=Cosmos Duality - Averus & Caelum=-

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

The single animations were not changed for technical reasons, but it's not so bad, because I looked in Jedi Outcast and I can safely say that the single animations in both games are now the same! Well, except for the idle stance in Jedi Outcast, which I loved. But, this is a good animation pack, and it will work with JA+. So, if you have the previous version of this, then download this version. :) Oh, and the melee stance has been changed as well. :) ~Zach

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!

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~

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!

Toshi's Yoda

t_yoda.zip | 13.34 MB

model, and boy, I don't know how Toshi does it but he's not only a fast modeler, hes a decent one at that. 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.

Complete Species Pack

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 ¬_¬.

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.

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.

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

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.

Episode III Palpatine

episode_iii_palpatine.zip | 6.95 MB

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.

Jurancor Park

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

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~

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~

Sith Council Final

sithcouncilv3.zip | 22.35 MB

maps pretty closely over the years, being rather impressed with their strong RP value and general amusement. This version, being the final version, is basically a devil's deal in my book. The main term I'd like to emphasize in this review is [i]trade-off.[/i] Whilst there are good aesthetic changes and pretty decent content revamps, these same things could also be reversed into negatives, which is possible, although uncommon, especially in maps. To preface, I'll be tackling this review basically in a room-to-room fashion somewhat, in an effort to help emphasize the changes in the content. [i]Main Lobby/Darth Bar[/i] - The Main room has gotten a rather large overhaul in regards to texture, but in essence, it remains similar to the JedicouncilGC map as it was intended. The doors have been moved and removed as necessary in this revamp. The textures, I must say, aren't a great change. It must attempt a look at being wood, but in the end, they just look like the walls are covered in a very fine fur =_o. These textures plague a large majority of the map, and hurt its visual appeal. The wooden pillars now no longer fit in with the map, alienating themselves from the color scheme. Lighting seems to be much more noticeably unsourced than the last version. I think the only real good changes in my opinion would be the stairs and the use of daises to prelude the exit hall doorway. Darth Bar looks completely...dare I say repulsive? Nay, but it's definitely taken an aesthetic hit. The red furry looking texture has made the bar seem like some sort of cafe for failing abstract artists who think they're unique. The signs have been removed, and the actual bar itself seems realistically unservicable. [i]The "Side Rooms"[/i] - Now we shall branch out into the rooms on either side of the main hall. The "lava pit" has been revamped into an indoor cavernous area of sorts. A bland box of stone, with the worst lava texture I've seen out there. This lava texture is used in pretty much every lava area now, and looks so very ugly without a glow shader or what have you. Moving next door, we approach the armory. Like the main hall, it's received that horrible furry red texture. The appeasing trade off was the use of cubbies to store the weapon spawns. Otherwise, unappeasing. On the other balcony lies the Dojo from V2. No changes there(screenshot ) Moving down to the first floor, underneath the lava pit room, we find the acid pit room. Honestly, the new acid texture makes it look like...snot. It also doesn't look very liquid-esque when you look at the texture. Basically the same as the lava pit room now. Across the room, next to the bar, is the library. It was extracted from V2, and looks the same.(screenshot ) Next door is the old interrogation room. It didn't get a very decent revamp. Biggest change I noticed was the torture room's downsize. I was going to flesh this out a little more, but I didn't feel like it =_= [i]The Halls[/i]- The halls are probably the most impressive changes I noticed. The annex as you enter from the main lobby I liked with its sourced red hue. From there you can reach a couple halls. The upper halls are the most interesting, having a triangular architecture, and I find it quite tasteful. The lower basement halls, however, seemed overly broad, and unappealing. It had promise, albeit it was wasted. The biggest disappointment was that the "RP hall" was destroyed, ousting the classroom and cafeteria. [i]Med bay[/i]- Suffice to say, it looked like it was more based roughly on the Jedi's Home JL II map's med bay, although there it was a rough look. Otherwise, it retains the usual bacta tank functions, including the out of order one. [i]Cage Arena[/i]- Probably the best room to overhaul, although it wasn't 100% improved. The room did, however, get completely rebuilt. The arena retains its general shape, but there's no long as much wasted space. The stadium seating is now positioned in the corners of the rooms. The council observation area chairs look very baudy now, with a bright spectrum of colors. Also, the elevator looks very tacky, having a box texture that doesn't blend in with the scheme. [i]Bedrooms[/i] - All the bedrooms have been effectively ravaged, no longer retaining the simple appeal of the others. The size of the rooms have become monstrous, and the number of furnishings don't really compensate. A lot of the rooms contain camera portals of certain areas. Honestly, it feels like more was taken away than added. [i]Basement Areas[/i] - I mentioned the problem with the basement halls. I'll simply attack the rooms. The dungeon was my favorite revamp, having received a nice stone dungeon rehaul. There is now a control center with which to seal off the dungeon cells with a forcefield. There is also a very blatant secret exit route that leads out into the main halls. The council room looks slightly more like a council room in terms of chairs, but otherwise, the room now looks like some sort of angsty artist's creation, with the furry red texture and the odd shaped windows. The pillar room no longer has the battle platform, so now it's just for jumping around and... [i]Outside/Court Room[/i] - Now then =_= the outside has received both good and bad revamps. An aesthetically good revamp definitely was the footbridges and the path leading the the courtroom. The stone door to it could have at least gotten a better texture. The secret door factor was basically ruined with the path. Whilst the waterfall route was a lot better, the super smooth hill just didn't feel very realistic, and the loss of the chasm of death sort of ruined the sithese feel. Ah well.. The courthouse was a much better overhaul, it looks a lot more size appropriate and less oversized. The textures are thankfully quite pleasant, the pit is a lot more ominous. [i]Secrets[/i] - Some secrets are more obvious now, and some aren't. Sadly, some of the secret control areas don't have textures. Not a very good sign. Overall, this map was on a very different, and arguably lower, level than with its predecessor. Granted, this could be expected by conservative fans, but even from an objective point of view, viewing it as a stand alone, it doesn't quite earn the cigar. Granted, it's still [b]Good,[/b] but it could have been better. A shame this is the final version of the map, as it doesn't seem to leave behind the best legacy. My words mean nothing to many. SUBMIT BANDWIDTH, VIEW, AND JUDGE FOR YOURSELF. For some, it could still be a grand improvement. For myself, on the other hand, it leaves more to be desired.

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!

The Tenth Doctor

the_tenth_doctor_skin.zip | 9.12 MB

based off of his main costume. This is Jedi_Master_Vox\'s first time at skining and releasing so it says in the readme, and for a first time skin, its pretty good. The textures on the torso, arms, legs all seem 80 percent accurate to me, though the author has made multiple errors around the shoulders, under the arms and around the waste, which can be seen via the screenshots. Facial wise to me this doesnt look much like David Tennant. I think an attempt has been made which is good to see, but I\'m not sure its the best of models to use for a Doctor Who re-skin head wise. But I could be wrong. Im trying to find a resemblance in the face but I couldn\'t really spot one:(. Now to my favourite part of this skin, the shoes. I always liked the fact the latest Doctor Who wore converses, gave him that kinda old school feel. Though I never remember seeing him wearing blue ones but rather white, I can let that pass though ;). There not perfectly in-line with the model but still a good attempt in this area and im glad the author didn\'t miss them out. For a first skin this is definitely not bad at all. Improvement wise, I suggest working on your face textures and getting rid of those skinning errors on the clothing, if you plan on releasing a V2. -|Sho\'Hen|- Bot Support: Nope Team Support: Nope Npc Support: Nope New Sounds: Nope

like that's about all it does. Doesn't seem to change gameplay much, except where perhaps it should be. To quote the changes listed in the read-me: Quote:- Fixed /say command buffer overflow. - Fixed server command buffer overflow. - Fixed problems while voting in TFFA. - Fixed the black name, now ^0 makes your nick black, no more need to ^^0. - Fixed big messages color replacement bug. - Fixed the sliding while standing on top of someone. - Now taunts are allowed in all gametypes. - While dueling you can't collide with anyone outside the duel. - Multiple FFA Private Duels. - Private Duels in TFFA Allowed. - Added /announce command to enable admins to print big messages in the center of player's screens. - Added the possibility to have taunts in all gametypes. This mod also adds several new admin cvars, in case you don't like one or more of these changes and would like to turn them off. Sounds like it could be handy for those server admins who find that mods like JA+ just change too much for their tastes. ~Inyri[/quote] There are various bug fixes, new admin commands, new admin cvars, and a little bit more. Here's the new features. [quote]- Dismemberment Enhancements - Full Dismemberment is possible now. - Anti Model Hack System - This pretends to prevent players from using exploited skins that make body parts invisible. - Enhanced match mode play - Using player "ready-up" to force syncronized matches. Supported in all team modes (TFFA, SIEGE and CTF). - Several callvotes issues fixed. - The callvotes can now be disabled in parts. - The /callvote kick changes to /callvote kick . - The /tell command now accepts a player substring. - Improved some issues in callvotes. - Player without a name not allowed, even if they hack the name with just colours. Example: name “^1^2^3^4^5^6^7”, this name and other names using only colours are not allowed. - Fixed some siege bugs (example: After we die, when we wait to respawn if we do /kill we die again). - Fixed some exploits in snaps and rate usage, now they are limited by sv_minRate and sv_minSnaps. - /kill spamm not allowed. - Improved some bots issues, and now they can accept duels. - Added /help command[/quote] So, if you love basejka and want it improved, then download this. Or, if you're a server admin who doesn't like JA+, then you might like this. ~Zach

BlueIce Twilight

blueice_twilight.zip | 24.42 MB

saying how large the map is. But this map really is MASSIVE. I cant believe how much stuff Szico has put into this map. You could explore it all day and still not find everything! This is a very snowy map, which I suppose is apt for this time of year, as December is usually known for its snow! Unless of course you live somewhere where it doesn’t snow… In the part of the UK that I live in, we rarely get proper snow. Its usually either mush that falls here, or when we do get snow its only a thin layer that melts anyway after a couple of hours unless its cold enough lol! Anywayyy…it looks like there’s been plenty of snow falling in this map as its absolutely covered in it! I must also say that the choice of base JKA skybox used is very clever. It might only be the night-time one that’s used on the Korriban Multiplayer FFA map, but it fits very nicely with the snow! There are just too many cool (forgive the pun) features in this map to list. So I will try and only comment on the best ones :D Firstly the area where I spawned was a frozen pond type thing. The texture and shiny shader used looked very effective, and being a frozen pond, its really slippery too, so watch your step! However, there’s something far cooler (forgive the pun again!) that just a frozen pond there. There are fireflies, tons of them! The author has really done a good job making this new effect, it really does look like fireflies are hovering around the pond, and it looks very scenic :) The choice of music for the map is also excellent and adds to the scenic atmosphere. The main area to the map is sorta like a little village. There are many small cottages scattered around, a few of them you can even go in. There’s a nice warm fire inside, some furniture, and even a sleeping bag type thing :) The way the doors of the cottages have been scripted to swing open is more like real life and looks very good, afterall how many cottage doors do you see that just slide away into the wall like the doors we are so used to seeing in Starwars maps? Around the back of some of the cottages is a TaunTaun pen, this is a BIG map remember, so TaunTaun’s are useful for getting around quickly! Another thing I like in this map is the Snow covered Fir trees, they fit very well with the map, and there is a nice little area where there is a camp fire surrounded by a few trees. Again very scenic. Lets not forget the Ski Lift and Ski Slope too! Its fun sliding down there…weeeee! *crack!* *crunch!* Owwww… Anywayyy, that’s just the main area, after that there is another area to get to. You get to this via a frozen sewer or river type thing. At first when I saw it, it was covered with ice, and I didn’t think anything of it. Then I jumped on it and *CRACK!* the ice broke and I fell into the water! That was a very cool idea, breakable ice ;) Anyway, once I swam my way through the sewer/river I came out at this shaft where I had to jump up in order to upon this hatch above me. Once out I worked my way out onto this snowy canyon road…with errmmm…an X-Wing at the side? That seemed a bit out of place for the setting of the map! Go through what looks like a boarded-up shaft, wind your way through the corridors and eventually you will find yourself back at the main area! Phew. Errm but that’s not it…there are loads of secrets and other places you can go in this map, including what I believe is a Final Fantasy themed duel room, control rooms, even deep underground through something that looks like a mine shaft! Now, I couldn’t tell you where all the secrets are of course, as well as making the review insanely long, that would spoil the fun :P I will give you some clues as to where to find one of the secret areas though ;) Look around for some padlocked hatches, you can break the padlocks and then press the use button to open the hatches…I’m not going to tell you anymore though, that would spoil the fun now wouldn’t it? Mwahaha! One other great thing was the teleporters around the map, they look incredible when they are turned on. Now it’s a bit complicated to turn them on, basically look for round buttons that you can press to turn them on (I had trouble finding them though, but then again I’m not good at finding things!) Also look for a hidden teleporter behind a brick wall somewhere. It’s a bit difficult to find, but I’m sure you will find where it is ;) Now, onto the things that could have been improved upon. Well the map is extremely high quality, and there was very little here that I thought could be improved upon. However there were still one or two things. One thing was that the boulders scattered around certain places in the map were very jaggedy, it would have looked cool if they were a bit more rounded off. But it still looks ok really ;) And of course, as with any map this size, the FPS in places did drop quite a bit for me. But overall I’m very glad to say that the FPS was very good :) Besides that an absolutely excellent map here! Well done Szico! :) Bot Support: Yes New Textures: Yes New Sounds: Yes New Music: Yes Game Types: FFA, TFFA, Duel, Power Duel, CTF ~Nozyspy~ Oh and by the way, Szico informs me that all the source files for this map are included in the .zip, I’m certainly going to enjoy looking through those, and I’m sure you will too ;)

Escape: Yavin IV

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. There's a walkthrough included! Okay, totally going to cheat and play this all the way through later. :D

vehicles allowed in jedi academy,the vehicles do add the extra fun to the map. 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.

-[ZoU]- Zone of Ultima Fortress

zoufortress.zip | 24.7 MB

But! We all know there are exceptions to that generalization and in my opinion this is one of them. This map is cool! There are so many things to explore and the rooms have their own cool sounds and what not. I particularly liked the underground portion of this map, the sounds and fog and such fit so well in that part. There were however some FPS problems in some areas but this was quickly forgotten about while I was running around looking for the secrets and such. This map has a cool \"music room\" where you can change the music over the entire map. There was a problem with one of the choices for the music, I guess the song was renamed of not packed in the .pk3 or something because it said it couldn\'t find the file. Still quite a good map though! In the readme it says there\'s a spawnable NPC that you can fight by pressing use on a clan logo somewhere, I didn\'t get the chance to try to fight him so I can\'t tell you how to beat him =). All in all quite a cool map! It has tons of new shaders and textures and nifty doodads that you can play with. I hope to see more than clan maps from you El Cuko. Good WOrk!

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.

However for those of you who enjoy the odd sabers, you\'ll like this one, I mean it even has a story behind it! [i]A saber that once belonged to the Kel Dor Sith Lord, Baret Kloopon. Like a saber staff but with two ignition points on each end.[/i] So there ya go, not only is it a saber, but it\'s a saber with SW type history and it\'s a free download so how can you turn that down eh? :p The hilt is somewhat plain though, having a very strange texturing that looks like wood perhaps (I went as far as to look at the JPG and still couldn\'t work it out). But there you have it, a 4 pointed, strangely textured saber that will be great for some of you while others will just not like it. Impossibly to please everybody though right? -WadeV1589-

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

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

EA Jedi Skinpack 2010

Mcgregor, and Hayden Crystonson. Good stuff, good stuff. So, let\'s look \'em over in the order they were introduced, shall we? Liam, aka Qui Gon Jinn, was based off the Quinlan Vos model, probably the only sensible choice given the model selection in this game. The general tunic and visible attire looks good, and what piques my interest was the face. Did you photosource that or was that original creation? I really can\'t tell this time around. Regardless, it looks pretty good. Photosource or not, it really does look like the character it\'s meant to portray. The robed version, however, does carry the classic Quinlan robe curse, where the interior of the robe does not draw itself without proper shading. Otherwise, very nice skin. Samuel L, one of the coolest actors, took on the role of Mace Windu, as many of you know. This pack carries a standard battle robe, a robed, and a hooded robe version, all skinned on the Anakin model. Once again, very good work on the face. If I wasn\'t so used to seeing Jackson have a constant scowl on his face, I\'d say this looks just like him. There\'s really not much else to say, other than this was the most successful attempt yet. Alright, time for Obiwan. This one used the Obi Wan model. What a shock. Well, this one I\'m actually not too wild about. The clothes are still awesome, and look pretty true to the character. The face texture, however, just...eh, doesn\'t feel totally right. At this point, I\'m guessing he did photosource the faces, because this one just feels photosourced. The other two didn\'t look as sourced as this one. Granted, it still looks like him but I\'m just kinda up in the air about the quality of this one. There\'s a lot of skins to work with here, pretty much his whole episode 3 repetoire, including the battle-worn versions. Now, Anakin...this one had me double-take a few times, as it looks like he\'s barely done a thing to them. I can hardly see a difference between Hapslash\'s and his version. I\'d say that\'s probably a good thing if he did indeed overhaul the skin as he said. Now granted, I do see some critical differences in the clothing, as the clothes seem to be a bit darker than HS\'s, so that at least helps to distinguish. Facially though, I can\'t tell. Either way, it looks pretty damn good, so kudos to whatever you did! XD Alright, so that about covers \'em all. Sadly, none of them really have team skins, though they have sounds and Obi Wan has bot support, so that\'s a plus. Hope to see more malevolent deeds from you more often, Master Andor.

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

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~

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!

certainly makes him seem a bit more complete. I would have suggested a little more of an expanded look, seeing as he feels rather top heavy, both in size and decoration. 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. The author decided to just go with the standard soundset ragnos possessed. Not exactly smart, but it is space savvy. Unfortunately, that\'s all that\'s there is the model. No additional extras.

Final Fantasy X Weapon Pack

ffxweps.zip | 3.4 MB

which can be found in other FF games too. The models used are very well done, however I felt they were a little too thick, compared to the originals, which were that bit more curved. It'll become apparent what I mean when you see the Nirvana. Also, I think a little more could have been done on the shader work, and texture work. They are very good as they are, but I was disappointed that the brotherhood wasn't as waterlike as in the game - oh and adding some extra shine to the golden bits of some of the weapons wouldn't hurt either. :) However, don't think that that means this isn't a good pack - I think its brilliant, being an Final Fantasy fan, especially the blitzball (which replaces the thermal detonator) and despite my qualms about the shader on the brotherhood (The one which emits bubbles) it is a very, very nice piece of work, in terms of its model accuracy. Another favourite was the sphere which replaces the trip mine, but how come it doesn't have a beam anymore Inyri? It's more like a proximity mine now lol :D My least favourite of the pack is probably Auron's Murasame (Katana sword), or possibly Tidus' Longsword. Both are good models, don't get me wrong, but the textures seem a little dull and with the longsword especially, too bright - the longsword was more maroony ingame and had a few more scratches. The gold etching on Auron's sword also kinda goes off the edge of the sword, it doesn't quite fit onto the bottom of the blade smugly. I know there's already a shine on it, but it needs to be more prominent in my opinion. The sounds are all pretty nice, nothing horrible, nothing spectacular, they all fit well and they all sound right :) Overall this is a fantastic pack, I know I sound like I'm being critical of it but trust me I'm not - I'm just a Final fantasy fiend and want everything perfect lol, which isn't always possible in JK3. As one of your first ventures into modelling Inyri, give yourself a pat on the back for a job well done - oh, and make a V2 with the weapons more curved :D Finally, be ready for a LOT of .pk3 files in your base if you want all the weapons, as each comes in it's seperate pk3. This has its upsides and downsides: You can choose individual weapons not to use, but if you want all of them your base folder gets clogged up (Something I don't like lol - but of course, it's all personal;) ) ~Szico VII~

retexturing, all made to appear to be a bit more realistic. To be more specific about the changes, I'll speak about each one seperately. The robed version: I can see no real differences between this version and the original besides how the top of the robe has been darkened quite a bit, and more shadow added to the face. The shirtless version: Again, no real changes seem to have been made besides the darkening of shadows on the body and clothing. The normal version: The only part of this with team skins, though the only change is the color of the belt. For the rest of the skin it is the same for each team and default, which seems to only be a darkening of the clothes and skin. There are new sounds for it, bot support, and npc support, but sadly, there is no single player customization support. All in all, not bad changes, they just did not seem like very much to me.

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

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~

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

famous scene in the movie, and not to bad a job at it to. I think the general feel one gets is what the author was striving for. Since this is being made for somthing else, I wont discuss other areas such as other rooms etc, since I do not know the reason or place this map holds in battlemovies. I will ask about two things that really stood out though. The first thing, would be the "sun" rays. I dont get them, and they do feel out of place. Maybe they were forgotten to be removed? In any case, the other issue is the weapons placement. In the under areas of this map, there are rows and rows of weapons all in the same place. The map is fairly pretty and like I already stated, does carry the general feel of its intention. Can't wait to see the finished / full version in the coming Moviebattles! ~LK~

Final Fantasy VII - Midgar

midgarv2.0.zip | 38.22 MB

played FF7 or not, I can assure you that this map is worth trying out. The first thing you're probably thinking if you played the last version is, "I hope the FPS is improved" Well it is, alot. I got an average of 35-40 FPS in most areas and thats with absolute max settings (including cg_shadows 2 and dynamic glow, yeah I like it looking nice :D) Anyway, lets start with the map itself, First place I visited was the battle square, which would be the main place for duelers or people who like stuff like that. There is a button that you press and it spawns a series of NPC's that continually get harder (it goes from like, reborn and then a few more to a rancor, and the you'll face Sephiroth :o, it's just one of many of the fun things you can do). Great place to fight. The main area of Midgar is amazing, greatly lit and beautiful to look at, all FF7 fans will recognize the Shin-Ra HQ. This area is fantastic for guns and sniping, since it's large and has great places to move to and hide. The train yard is there and the village, there's a few secrets so keep an eye out for them :P. Exploring the map is great fun, especially if you do it with someone else. The last area is the Chocobo ranch, with RIDEABLE CHOCOBOS!!. They come in different colors and all have different properties (example, the blue one has water capabilities and the red one may have more HP, I'm not sure about this, it's just an example). There is switches that open the ranches doors around the map, they're well hidden, so finding them all won't be an easy task :P. So, you think it couldn't get any better huh? Well there's a realistic Sephiroth model in here too, I give you permission to jump around with joy and stop reading this review here to download it ;). Overall, one of the best maps made for JKA yet. Great music, great lighting, great textures and architecture, it's been vastly improved since the last version and there's tons of stuff to do. I suggest you download it even if you don't like Final Fantasy. There is also a duel map version of the battle square, so if you wanted to put it up on your duel server, there’s no problem.

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!

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!

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~

Luke Skywalker - Splinter of the Mind's Eye

[file="27548"]Luke Skywalker - Heir to the Empire[/file] skin. What's new, you ask? Pretty much everything, in short. [quote]Completely redone hair, torso and leg textures, edited face for a much younger look, added more detail to the arms[/quote] So, basically, a redone Luke Skywalker, wearing a grey shirt, trousers that are comparable to the rebel pilot minus the boots, and something I cannot help but shake the feeling is a skirt. I have to say I rather like it though. I do have one or two gripes: -Firstly, team skins. Unlike what the readme states, there are team colors, but I can't help but find them lower quality than the non-teamed skins. It might be me, but I get the feeling team skins are more MS Painted than the other skins. -Secondly, arms are too big in comparison to the hands. If you look at the arms from below, you'll see the hands just sort of hover inside the oversized arms, rather than actually, well, fitting. Would like to see that being fixed. Despite that though, definitely a good attempt. Gripes aside, I like it :p ...Man, I swear, writing reviews in notepad without reviewmobile access is ridiculously hard.

Besides the improvements to FPS and the (Amagawd thank you) enabled locking of the Bot Spawn Room, I can't really say much. It's the same map in a way, and that's what still makes it have that glow.

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~

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. I'm keepin' it myself, not out of Chuck Norris fandom but mostly because I tend to like more "real world" models and skins. And by the way, my prior threat about memes still stands. Any more memes on this page, the Norris Roundhouse will be the least of your worries, I'll unleash my own brand of whoop-ass in the form of the Harris Uppercut Special.

Final Fantasy VII - Advent Children Mod

assetsff7ac.zip | 9.62 MB

or the other if you so desired, in addition to a new startup screen. I'll start with the new screens first of all :) Okay, so this is basically a redesign of all of JA's menu screens and whatnot. Advent Children based, they all are well made and seem to work well for their purpose, e.g. the picture of Aeris when loading an unknown map. I'd imagine this would appeal mostly to Final Fantasy fans, and others may prefer not to include this section. However you can remove it if you want, yet still keep the fantastic weapon set which is included ;) You can check out the screenshots for an example of a changed menu. Incidentally, the only one 'm not too fond of is the main menu pic - it just seems kind of dark around the buttons. Although these are the immediately obvious effects of the mod, once you start playing you'll find it's inner beauty, the weapons pack. It has a huge number of well modelled and skinned weapons, with the most famous ones such as Cloud's buster sword and Sephiroth's masamune being exceptionally detailed. Some new saber trails and slash effects seen from the preview trailers are also included, and coupled with the new sounds they look very snazzy ;) I guess, despite these classic weapons being modelled perfectly, the one I was most impressed with was the gunblade lookalike, although right now the name eludes me. This looks very impressive and seems like the hardest to model as well. If I had to choose one I didn't particularly like it would be the Alastor. Even though the sword itself is just as high-quality as the rest, the electric effects on it don't work smoothly like the other effects do. Incidentally, the old version of this pack had some conflicts with the Midgar v2 map, but the author assures us that this version has no conflicts, so if you have any old versions I advise you update to this one :) Oh, there's also a lot of blood modding here when you slash people, so here's just a forewarning if you have something against blood mods. ~Szico VII~

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..

T'was quite fun to shoot across the map in such grace. - Multiple and pretty nice emotes - Drop your weapons(huzzah =_=) - Engage in four types of duels: Force Duel, Melee Duel (200 HP/fists), training duel(the only duel you can choose to end), and the regular old duel. - Change your chat color with /chatcolor /ignore people and more =_=! [b]Admins will get to do this:[/b] - Teleport - Slay - My favorite, Insult Silence: =_,= instead of being silenced, one gets to insult themselves, in whatever manner the server pre-defines. - Adding weather effects, map objects, and visual effects to the map in real time. and quite a lot more =_= Hopefully that list will have whetted your appetite slightly. If not, the roar clan has an online wiki manual that can be reached in the tools section of the clanmod folder. Overall, this mod is not one to be passed up. It has so much one could do, and there's virtually no competition between this and JA+. I would say that this mod will undoubtedly become a hit, should anyone choose to make the change. The power is nothing short of malevolent, and honestly, if my rambling hasn't convinced you, perhaps the screenshots will. SUBMIT BANDWIDTH IMMEDIATELY! =_= *destroys planets* - Averus Retruthan

Ultimate General Grievous

with an electrostaff. 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. Sorry! But if you\'re a Grievous fan you might want to give this a download and check to see if there\'s anything here that you\'ve been missing. ~Inyri

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.

There are team skins and everything is colour-coordinated. Even her eye color changes with each skin. There\'s bot support, but she uses just the default Tavion sounds. Which I suppose is fine, since it still is Tavion, though it would\'ve been nice to hear at least a new taunt.

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

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\'m eager to see what else Mars has in store for the community! :D Bot Support: Yes Team Colors: Yes New Sounds: Yes ~AmosMagee

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!

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!

Apcotyl Temple

apcotyl_temple.zip | 43.42 MB

Apocalypse, it is in fact completely unrelated! Anyway… what is this map about then? Well it seems to be a sort of clan map, judging from what is included and how it is laid out. Even if clan maps aren’t your cup of tea, don’t leave just yet, because there are some really cool surprises to be found in this map! More on them later… First off let’s have a look at the layout of the map and the main areas it contains. Probably the biggest area is the outside area, which contains a waterfall and river on one side and a ‘lava-fall’ on the other. The center of this area has a nice little place to duel, and if the switch on one of the broken columns is pressed, a reborn is spawned to spar with. With the ambient noises of the waterfall and other natural sounds, combined with the beautiful music, this area is really very relaxing and would make a fantastic place for clan gatherings. The whole map is based around the principle of fire and water it seems, and most of the areas have a mixture of water and lava in various places, as well as red and blue lighting, which is a very effective combination. There are what seem to be a few duel rooms, which are quite large, and each one of them is different. The customary council rooms are of course included, beyond un-openable doors (un-openable at least to people who aren’t the clan leaders ;)), one of my favourite areas of the map was the council chambers themselves and the multicoloured glowing crystal statues, the likes of which I have never seen before! The best bit is yet to come though, well at least in my opinion anyway! Work your way through the map and you will eventually come to the hangar, where a very nice replica of the Republic shuttle out of the opening scenes of Episode 1 is docked. This is one of those nice surprises I talked about earlier. Apart from being [b]huge[/b] and looking great on the outside, the ship is fully enterable. In the center is a seating area, which passengers would occupy, whilst at the back end is a small bar, toilets (which flush!) and up some stairs, a medical center. Towards the front end is a lounge type area with big windows for admiring the view, and then above that is the bridge. If you use the consoles in the bridge, you can fire the left and right guns on the front of the ship, which is a cool interactive feature. Although unfortunately they only fire at the wall, rather than at anybody loitering below! It’s a real shame that you can’t actually take off in this ship, because it is really cool, but alas that is beyond JKA’s capabilities I’m afraid. Although saying that, I think it would have been nice if there was a version of the ship you could teleport to that was in space, perhaps with some moving stars and such. Now, lets move onto the architecture and build quality. I must say that overall, though there were a few areas where the build quality could have been improved a little, I think that the map was built very well. I couldn’t find any obvious bugs, and the whole map ran smoothly. The architecture is also well built, and follows the theme of water and fire, with some areas dark and rock like, and other areas light and using more wood textures. I do feel that some areas could have done with some more architectural detail. I also think the rock walls, particularly in the main outside area need to be smoothed a bit more, to look more organic because they look a little flat at the moment. I think those few things are the main areas that could be improved upon really. Apart from that I think the map just needs some more detail here and there and some improved architecture in a few places. All in all a very cool clan map here! I couldn’t see any obvious clan symbols or insignia either, so that is a big bonus as it means that this map is suitable for use by any clan. Personally I really loved this map, especially the huge hanger and the docked ship, that was quite a unique touch for a clan map I think. Excellent work here, and well worth a download I think! :D [b]New Textures:[/b] Yes [b]New Sounds:[/b] Yes [b]New Music:[/b] Yes [b]Bot Routes:[/b] No [b]Game Types:[/b] FFA, TFFA ~Nozyspy~

Trade Federation Battleship

ffa_tradefed.zip | 26.54 MB

one and only Plasma! I remember a long time ago when The Phantom Menace was still pretty new, that I got the Episode 1 game. The first level you played on, was of course, the Trade Federation battleship. I still vividly remember playing through those levels, so that will serve me well when checking the accuracy of this map! So, without further ado, lets begin… The first bit that I wanted to mention and that also caught my attention quickly was the bridge. Unfortunately in the Episode 1 game, you couldn’t get into the bridge, which always frustrated me. Finally though, with this map I can wander in and out of the bridge area as I please, which brings a smile to my face as I remember the hours of frustration all those years ago, trying to figure out if there was a cheat, or a way in to the bridge in that old game. You will notice if you look outside the window that straight ahead is Naboo, as well as an awful lot of Trade Federation battleships. I think the skybox here looks fantastic! :D Two other big features are the hangars, one of which is filled with Droid Starfighter’s ready to deploy. The other seems to be more like a storage hangar, there are crates and tanks stacked around and also some Droid Tanks and a Droid Transport at one end. Whilst some of the doors do not open (indicated by the red light) many do open and the map is interconnected with passageways, which make this a good medium sized FFA map. Alas the room where the Trade Federation lays out some refreshing drinks for Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon, and then promptly tries to pump them full of poisoned gas isn’t included, which is a bit of a shame. That is one of the improvements I feel could be made for the next time around, adding that room into the map. Apart from that, the map is a good size and well built. I do feel some of the textures could do with some more detail on them though, as they look a little too flat and clean. Perhaps some scuff marks, or giving the textures some more detail and texture would be cool. Other than that though, this is an excellent map, which I enjoyed playing on. Its been a while since I have seen some good sized movie map reproductions, so I am pleased to have been able to review this! If you guys like the look of this map, or fancy adding a new movie map to your collection, then give this a download! :) [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 ~Nozyspy~ [b]***EDIT*** Much to my shame, I actually missed a couple of areas in this map when I write the above review! I stand corrected, the conference room area where the Trade Federation attempt to poison Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan IS in here, complete with little clouds of poisoned gas! Added to that there is also a Droideka storage room that was featured as part of the Trade Federation Battleship level for The Phantom menace PC game. I do apologise for missing these areas! To get to them you just have to go through the doors on the opposite side of the Droid Starfighter hangar. Alas I completely missed this part! :( [/b]

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~

Final Fantasy VII Compilation

ff7compilation.zip | 13.61 MB

had to grab this file and set traps around it to keep those other reviewers off. Now onto the review..... First off the new start up, menu, console and loading screens. All of them look good, they fit and inkeep with the mod greatly. There isn't much more I can say about a group of pictures in all honesty. Now, the sword trail and hit animation (dual hound) both look very good and inkeep with the movie and the respective games. The sword trail isn't too dominant as some are, instead it just follows along, modestly increasing the feel of the mod. The new hit animations for the dual hound are great, a little sketchy but thats just splitting hairs. As you can see from the screenshot the author has taken care with these and both have come out well. Next up are the weapons. All of them are well made and have had a great deal of care and attention put into their creation. Buster sword: Everyone's favourite oversized sword. The model itself is great, very accurate apart from one thing, the swords grip seems a little too long, in this model it seems over 1/3 the size of the blade. It doesn't ruin anything but it looks a little off to me. Other than that its all there right down to the materia slots. The textures do the model a great justice and are extremely accurate. In the pursuit of perfection maybe adding a bit of damage would help but otherwise thumbs up. First tsurugi: Again a very accurate model with textures just as good. The fact that most of the details are on the model as opposed to the textures only wroks to make the sword better. Unlike the buster sword this one looks better without any battle damage, probably due to the fact it never recieved any throughout the movie. Masamune: Sephiroths great katana, a simple but awesome weapon. Not much to say for this one, it looks a little short and again the grip seems disproportionate to me but it doesn't bother you ingame. The colours are good and, well, thats about it. Double katana (Souba): Kadaj's sword used to battle Cloud Strife in Advent Children. The model is accurate as well as the textures, due to it being a katana there are very few details both in the model and the textures that warrant a detailed mention. The piece of cloth tied to the guard has been missed for the obvious reason it would be rigid in JKA. Loveless: Personally this is my favourite weapon, simply because its so decorative. The model is great, especially the handle portion of the sword. The design of Genesis' sword is reflected almost perfectly. The textures are well done and do well to give it the right feel. SOLDIER sword: The first blade wielded by Zack in Crisis Core. A simple sword with a rounded hilt and a plain blade. The model fits in well and just as with the rest of the weapons the textures are very accurate. 4-Point shuriken: A nice job done here, from what I can see it looks perfect. Dual hound: A very difficult weapon to achieve accurately in JKA but well done here. The animations flow well with the model and the textures are great. Kudos to the author for not messing this one up, it's not the easiest of weapons to make. Spear: Ah Cid, the most reocurring character in the series. His spear serves to remind us that he was once a Dragoon, a good one at that. The bandages on the pole are well placed and look very good. The part just below the spearhead (I'm no expert on spears sorry) is well made and adds to the superb accuracy of this weapon. Guard stick: Aerith's beating stick, slightly reminisce of those staffs on the show 'Gladiator'. I have always found this weapon slightly comical in a way. Very accurate again here. Overall kudos to the author, this is without question my favourite, and in my opinion one of the best made weapon mods to hit the site for a long time. The new trail and screens all go together well to create that FF feel that many of us know and love. I will definately be keeping this one in my base folder, I recommend anyone who likes FFVII or just well made weapons and pretty pictures does the same. Submit your bandwidth and enjoy. -Sciacca

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!

MMG-Hoth

mmghoth.zip | 14.73 MB

Outside, you have a snowy valley with a functional Ion Cannon, the trademark hoth turret, and a a distant radar dish based off the ROTJ shield generator. Oh, and the shield generator itself >_> can't forget that. On the inside, of course, is actually a decently mapped out complex, that, whilst not faithfully accurate to the movies, is still a decent layout regardless. The hangar is decked with snowspeeders and the Millenium Falcon, and surrounding it are the primary base areas, of which contain: - armory/storage - Med bay - lounge/bedroom area(cease. hammer event: this particular area looked most out of place because of the different choice of texture, architecture, and giraffes. You'll see what I mean if you DL it -_-) - command center(with special treat) - generator room(or gunnery room, I'm not sure) - tauntaun barn - pilot prep room - and other fun prizes! The main factor that will probably set this map apart is its new script sequence. Along with having the vehicles and other supplies ready, this map contains a button located in the command center that will essentially allow you to recreate the battle of Hoth. Quite impressive actually. Starts with the probe droid, and then the drop ships come =_,= and then...mayhem...Sort of v_v unfortunately it's up to the players to fend off the invasion, with no NPC backup. Sorta ruins the experience when you ain't got any allies but hey, at least the generator can blow up =_,= Some relative bugs in the map include a couple unclipped objects in the generator room, and a strange shader error with the included vader model. I'm not sure what it is, but apparently the result is a very buggy cape that acts sort of amorphously. Not sure if that was to make the cape look like it naturally flutters or something, but it didn't work too well. Honestly, this is definitely one of those maps I'd suggest trying on your own rather than just reading my review. It's definitely not a bad experience, and I daresay there is some moderate RP potential within the map. Would need some tweaking but it could be done.

Female Mandalorian

female_mando_1.2.zip | 1.67 MB

textures to all of it added npc support made it so it doesn't replace Sintra model any longer [/quote] Pretty straightforward. The results? Eh, not too bad. The breastplate texture sorta bothered me and felt a little too un-armor. Maybe it's just not reflective enough. Ah well, a shader could easily fix that, mayhaps.

Star Killer

star_killer_final.zip | 4.92 MB

GOOD. HOLY CRAP. Let's start by quoting Nozy's review of the last version, shall we? [quote]Following on from his popular Starkiller 1.1 skin, Raziel here brings us a new update to this skin. Before I start complaining about how The Force Unleashed should really be coming to the PC and how annoyed I am that it isn’t, I better get on with the review! As I said last time I feel the choice of HapSlash’s Anakin Skywalker model to reskin was a good idea. The armour, which has been adjusted slightly from last time fits well on the model. The parts of the armour that have been changed are the breast and back plates, which have been trimmed down a bit, and now look a better shape in my opinion. The strapping around the arms has also been adjusted, as has the belt. Also the colour of the robes, and the texture on them seems to have been changed subtly as well. We also have team skins, though these don’t seem to have been changed since last time, it appears that the main changes were made to the default skin. Now, things that could be improved upon. Again, as I said last time, I do feel that there should have been some red and blue versions of the default skin, because people may not recognise the blue and red team skins as representing Starkiller. That said however, the team skins are distinctive and I think they look cool! Lastly, for next time I think it would be cool to try and include some bit support in there. Overall though another good skin here from Raziel, I look forward to seeing more from you mate! New Sounds: No Bot Support:No Team Support: Yes[/quote] As Nozyspy stated twice in his reviews of the previous versions of this file, the HS Anakin model fits this skin very well and the armor looks very realistic on it. The different parts of the tunic, armor, and various little doodads all fit the model very well and nothing really looks out of place... EXCEPT: Bum bum bum, the lips. Yes, the lips look very odd; especially from the side. They just look unnatural. Another small problem I see is on the sides of the tunic the belt is choppy and doesn't line up. That being said, let's move on to what's new in this version. The author added a slit into the back of the armor; segmented armor plates are very 'in'. He also removed the 'black kneepad things' and added new team skins, and trust me, they are spectacular. Just as high quality as the default skin. For blue team we have a lightside version, with a tan tunic and a yin-yang symbol on his white armor. For red team we now have the polar opposite - jet black clothing, deathly white skin, and fiery sith eyes. My favorite out of the 3 version though is still the normal skin; I just love the rugged appearance of him. Also included in this mod is a version of what the author thinks Starkiller's saber would have looked like. It is a nice skin in itself, and a good add-on to this great skin. Unfortunately, no new sounds have been included and neither has bot support. ~Laam'inui

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!

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

Classic Trilogy Lightsabers

classic_sabers2.zip | 1.71 MB

keeping saber hilt models low poly is two-fold - most of the time smoothing groups on, say, eight sides will look the same as smoothing groups on sixteen sides. Secondly, you hardly ever see the hilt up close enough to even see the detail. On the first saber I counted roughly a 24-sided cylinder. The first question that comes to mind is: "Why"? The other thing I noticed about these hilts is that, while there is a lot of detail in the model, there's not nearly as much detail in the skin, so much of the detailing in the model will go unnoticed. For such high-poly models, they should also have high-detail textures to make full use of this extra detail in the model. This is not the case here. It seems like the skins rely mostly on the included shaders for their looks. However honestly I think the chrome shaders are way over the top. Those sabers must've been polished for hours! Overall the models are very good, if just a little over the top, but the models and skins are not proportional to each other in detail, and this makes the hilts not quite as good as they could be. However if you're a detail freak, these hilts will probably be right up your alley.[/quote]In this version there are a few slight changes. Most notably among these changes are a softened shader and a texture change to the Ben saber (this adds another saber which has a more weathered look). I still must agree with my original review that the quality of the models [b][i]far[/i][/b] surpasses the quality of the textures, leaving them with something to be desired. However this time we also have included single-player menu support, so if you would like to use this hilts in single-player you can! Definitely a nice little bonus to add. Make sure to check the [file="57860"]original file[/file] for screenshots of the other hilts! ~Inyri

Anakin Hilt Collection

anakin_hilt_col.1.5.zip | 2.2 MB

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

Mortal Kombat Ninjas

mk_ninjas_skin_pack.zip | 12.34 MB

terms of accuracy, the author seem to have chosen a good model to get the general look of the model in there. On the other hand, the Skittles Ninjas don\'t have THAT big of biceps. THerefore, they look a little over-muscled, methinks. However, accuracy-wise, he couldn\'t have hit it any more cleanly without using an entirely new model. They look like who they\'re meant to represent, and honestly, it\'s an easy project because most of them merely required recoloring over one base skin XD. My only suggestion for the future would be to use one soundset and change sound.cfgs to match that soundset for your skins. Doing the way you\'ve done it dramatically increases the filesize, and thus detracts download consideration. However, I will say this is a fine piece of work, particularly for a first one =_= well done. For those who dare wish to gaze upon this pack and claim it for their own, eject your bandwidth into the Temple\'s gullet.

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

bot support and stuff ... well, it just gets old. Once someone first used a shader, everyone jumped on the bandwagon and that\'s all we saw in the Inbox for WEEKS. Don\'t let that deter you from getting these skins though. They look great in-game. And it\'s more than just a shader slapped on a skin. There\'s actually some design here and there. There are also some weapon reskins, but I didn\'t get screenshots of those. It\'s actually kinda cool that the author made the weapons exclusive for his clan. It\'s a little more creative than just throwing a tag on a skin. Instead, he threw a tag on a gun. ;) Anyway, not a bad skin pack, though it would be better with at the very least some new sounds.

FFA map - it\'s a clan map! And I have to say that when I took my first look, I was quite impressed. The building itself is really pretty! I love the outside of this building. But then I explored and found nothing but mostly large empty rooms, some z-fighting and boring textures. :/ Take a look at the screenshots and you\'ll see what I mean. My FPS wasn\'t bad at all, though it dropped a bit outside. Some doors can\'t be opened without using force push, so this isn\'t a map for those who run NF servers. And I do like it when mappers add those little things, but I just expected something more interesting in this map. Also, I\'d like to add that some rooms were waaayyy too dark. The lighting in this map is off in several places. Keep at it though, Jones. You made a beautiful building, but the map still needs work.

Episode 3 Skinpack

ep3skinpack.zip | 2.55 MB

the Ghoul2 mesh file (*.glm) was not included, only the Milkshape 3D file (*.ms3d). No bot scripting, team color support, or sounds were inculded. Mmkay. Hmm. I already wrote one harsh review, and kinda wanted that to be the only one, but this may turn into a second, so bear with me. IMO, a skin without something as incredibly easy to create as bot support, the basic support of team colors for CTF or TFFA, or sounds to enhance the uniqueness or believability of a skin, is not a skin. If you want to argue that a skin is merely the textures, then yes, you would be right. The skin is only the textures (not the script applying the graphics to the surface of the 3D mesh, or the model of the 3D mesh). To leave out the necessities is like leaving out the *.skin files or the *.glm. They aren't graphics, but you need them for it to work. Beyond that, the skins seem thrown together, with not much thought or planning. :( Technical Data: Pros: 1) NA Cons: 1) Obi Wan's face mesh was poorly UV wrapped. 2) Mace's face doesn't look like Samuel Jackson's, and the white boots and forearm guards were inconguous with the rest of the skin. 3) Yoda model not included. 4) No necessities.

than I remember. The new textures are nice. The Blah Room is interesting. Thankfully, many of the teleports are labeled, so you know where you\'re going. There\'s a new nightclub added. 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.

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.

!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

also make the game more enjoyable in many cases. Things such as x_flipkick will make many people happy who enjoy being able to flip kick while x_profanity_check will please many admins who want to cut out profanity in their servers. One I do NOT like though is x_jawa_model as there is nothing wrong with that model anymore and I will be getting peaved if I go on servers to find it is disabled! I went to their site to help me get an insight to the mod and I came across this (admittedly lengthy for a review) \"What is xMod2?\", I think this is a very good way of summing up just what it is, better than what I can do! Quote: -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- What is xMod 2 you ask? Well it\'s simple. Back in early 2002, Raven and Lucasarts teamed up to create one of the best games in Star Wars history, Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast. The game brought a unique mix of Star Wars and Competitiveness. Players could play for their liking of Star Wars, or for their thirst for gaming in First Person Shooters. It was a game that developed into a fast paced shooter game filled with innovativeness not seen before in the PC world. A year later... Raven\'s game Jedi Outcast began to die as more and more news came out about their upcoming release Jedi Academy. Everyone in the JO community was psyched. The month of the release came, then the week, then finally the day. Many gamers rushed to the nearest PC Store hoping for an even better game than Jedi Outcast, with new and improved gameplay mechanics and more. What they got was nothing more than Jedi Outcast + eyecandy. Jedi Academy was a disappointment for many. Not only did the first month include a non-functional Server Browser, but also players wouldn\'t go for the Jedi Outcast plus a few fancy, yet useless, moves. Not only that, but some of the most key moves of Jedi Outcast used to make combos was removed, and thus the only way to kill your opponent was holding Mouse1 and W.(Attack and Forward, if you use default keys) Enter xMod. When the SDK was released, xMod creator and pioneer =X=Master HeX went straight to work in an all night frenzy to restore some of the key components of Jedi Academy. xMod 2, the sequel to the amazing xMod of Jedi Outcast, now reunites players with gameplay that is not made for a person who has just picked up the game. xMod 2 neutralizes the gameplay in Jedi Academy, changing it to a game that is actually playable. All the options in xMod 2 are exactly that, optional. This allows for the most control over your server putting the admin back in the driver\'s seat. All in all: Raven failed us, but HeX has made Jedi Academy a game that can proudly wear the Jedi Knight series name, and has thus saved the series we have grown to love. Welcome to xMod 2. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- [/quote] Now let me just start off with the screenshot there. See that? Down there? Yeah - that. This mod actually detects script users!? How cool is that?! Okay, so some of the other features. There\'s a new delay kick that will actually delay kicking a lamer from the server to show them the message for why they are being kicked. !!! There\'s a protection cvar, honor code enforcement, and freeze tag - not sure what that is cause I didn\'t test this extensively. But the most important things in this mod have to be the ability to unlock the forced turn in yellow dfa\'s! AAHHH! Cause, yeah, I hate JA\'s ydfa. And now you can stand on someone\'s head without slipping off!!! Okay, so that\'s not the greatest feature - but I like it! :D Y\'know, there\'s just too much stuff here to list. It\'s all in the readme and if you don\'t want to read that right now, go find a server with Xmod and try it out yourself! I\'m actually considering switching mods now. Hmm. Great work, guys! :) ~AmosMagee

TFU 2 sabers

tfu2_ashuradx.zip | 2.17 MB

our cleverly marketed icon and new community deity, Galen Merak. 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

Using one of HapSlash's models and some textures from Spanki's Sith Customization pack the author has added the face of Darth Bane, with those distinctive markings (tattoos?). Personally I think the clothing looks a little flat (maybe add a shiny shader to that chest armour?), but the face is brilliant, menacing and expressive and is a dead spitting image for Darth Bane . The skin even comes in three flavours; normal, robed, and hooded, although I am dissapointed that only the normal version is available via the skin selection menu, for the other two you will need to use the /model command in the console; so either /model Bane/Robed or /model Bane/Hooded. Personally I think all three should have been accessible from the skin selection menu, just for the sake of ease of use (not that I am being lazy :P). The other thing I think could do with being added are team skins, like I keep saying they are always an important part of a skin! Nevertheless though, good work here, its good to see more characters like this immortalized in mods! :D [b]New Sounds:[/b] No [b]Bot Support:[/b] No [b]Team Support:[/b] No ~Nozyspy~

Now I don't remember where they fell into place in JKA but I do remember that they were in it. I also remember that Forcemod 3 included the rockettrooper skins as selectable models. This modder has basically done what Forcemod 3 did: take the rockettrooper and make it available as a multiplayer model. I think this is the first time it's been released on its own, however.

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~

Star Wars Movie Duels

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

Crash On Tatooine

and it's rare to find one without any apparent flaws. The text crawl is here, the cutscenes are smooth and flawless, the voice acting is good and has seamless lip-synch, and the plot, while short, is sweet nevertheless. You are one of the Academy students. While your comrades in arms are sent off dealing with Tavion Axmis and her cult, you are assigned to investigate a shuttle crash on Tatooine. In doing so, you must first engage in a canyon swoop battle with several teams of mercenaries, then a large warband of Tusken Raiders, before finally cutting through some elite Cult of Ragnos assassins. After that, Kyle [i]finally[/i] arrives with backup. All you have to fight with during this, is your lightsaber, a single medkit, and an E-11 blaster. The map design is quite good, although some areas are a little tricky for your swoop to maneuver due to it seemingly having either heightened speed or nerfed handling. Or both. All the details are in where they need to be, from the smoke on the crashed shuttle to the jawas milling around the sandcrawler. Relatively short mission, but very much enjoyable, and seamlessly constructed. Highly recommended for fans of singleplayer missions. Mercenary pretty much said "Errors? We don't [i]need[/i] no god damn errors!". ~ Kouen Edit Apr/14/2008: Added different screenshots and updated readme file at developer's request.

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 =_=.

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

went into these. Here\'s a little more indepth on each saber: [b]Goldenbone:[/b] You can choose either the single saber, or staff saber for this, which is modeled after Darth Maul\'s hilt as seen in Episode 1. Obviously it is gold in color, and it shines like I would a golden saber to. [b]Silverbone:[/b] Sister of the Goldenbone, it is the same hilt, just colored silver. This also comes with the choice of using as a single saber or staff saber. [b]Tataku:[/b] A japanese styled saber staff. Looks like something a samurai would use... very badass looking. [b]Diago:[/b] A reskin of the Plo Koon hilt that is available here on JK2files. Had the rounded, silvery feel to it. [b]Saul:[/b] Modeled for the player Saul, it looks like Luke\'s saber with a few things added where the blade extends from. [b]Immortal:[/b] A plain looking, but gold-colored saber. Pretty simple here. [b]SithSM:[/b] Obviously a saber that is intended for sith use. Looks good, too. [b]Saesee Tiin:[/b] This one has been posted already on jk2files, but the author was given permission to use it in this pack.[/b] Overall, this is a beautiful hilt pack.

the Meteoroid games I am confident saying that this model is pretty much exact, and its obvious to see that the author has put a lot of time and effort into creating such a wonderful model, he has even skinned the little exhausts for the jetpack, something I was surprised at and delighted to see, its not often authors pay so much attention to detail and the textures all look perfect. The team colours are not really a surprise, the colour of the legs and arms change, it looks good, but I can’t help but wonder if it wouldn’t look better if the torso and helmet changed colour as well.

This is a model of the AC version of Cloud, where Cloud looks alot better than he does with Playstation graphics. The model works well, there are a few minor problems but nothing noticeable, the hair mainly, but while playing it isn\'t really something that spoils it, so it\'s all good. Unfortunately though, no new sounds, but I know the trouble they had getting them and I\'m sure someone will fix that eventually.

Animation Switchup

animswitchv2.zip | 11.78 KB

\"Force Impale.\" This particular change does exactly what you might expect - rather than the normal lunge, which always seemed kind of silly to me, the animation is changed to the jabby one. Not the first time this has been done, right? Force Push and Pull have also been changed. I\'m not sure which animation pull comes from, but I quite like it [b]much[/b] better than the default. Push makes use of the two-handed lightning animation, which does make for a rather interesting result. The three new katas do indeed look neat - they take advantage of some of the lesser-seen animations in the game (in fact if you don\'t play SP or any of those strange server-side mods, you may have never seen these animations before). I found one possibly large problem, however. After some minor testing with many willing test subjects (read: stormtroopers) I discovered something alarming - the fast and medium katas don\'t actually make contact with their victims. I tried several times, from several angles and distances, but nada. While they look cool, the fact that they won\'t hit anything could be problematic. The strong kata doesn\'t seem to have any contact issues, but its slow speed does leave you vulnerable for a time. Then again, vulnerability is part of the trade off with a kata, I suppose. ~Inyri

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.

Tifa Lockhart

tifa_lockhart_ac.zip | 6.54 MB

expertise, I can give you a quote on accuracy, and with that, I can sum it up with this phrase: \"AC Yes, Original No.\" The Advent Children ones had more of a resemblance to their intended representation. The original FFVII was a good attempt, but without the hair, it fails to be totally 100% accurate. Granted, it would indeed require an extra model piece, but this is more for the diehard fanboys. Now this set is complete..not only does it have the 4 \"standard\" items, but it comes with a saber file! GASP indeed. Expecting the obvious, I got the obvious. This is basically a saber file with no model, so when used in dual stance, it looks like she is attacking with her hands. For an attempt at a melee \"saber\", it is decent. However the melee effect is barely achieved in this manner. It makes her look like she\'s flailing her arms like a chicken almost. A good thought, though. The only REAL problems I have is with the soundset and unnecessary filesize. For sound It\'s in japanese. WhY, I ask you! What do you have against Rachel Leigh Cook\'s voice? It\'s not that bad! At least we can understand her! Also, one of the taunts seemed very drawn out...VERY drawn out. It\'s one thing to have a small Japanese taunt, but a whole monologue? Nay, I will not accept that. *scythes that fact* Now, for the filesize. The reason it\'s 9MB is NOT because of high pictures, but because of unnecessary soundsets present in the file. Overall, it was a decent representation. There were some technical aspects that could have been improved-namely the size and soundset-but it is worth an offering of bandwidth to the download god.

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.

well) , two Obi Wans (same as Qui Gon), two Mace Windus (same as Qui Gon and Obi Wan), and Kit Fisto. Consisting of eleven reskins, it doesn't look too bad, and shows that the author put a bunch of time into this. Well the Qui Gon is a reskin of Toonce's JK2 Qui Gon, and it looks pretty good. The tunic has definitely been changed to more of a sandy look, so it looks like he's been out in the desert a while. It is also apparent that the hair has been recolored as well. He also comes in a robed version. The unrobed version has team skins as well, but the robed one doesn't. The Kit Fisto looks to be a reskin of the Kit Fisto from the Clone Wars pack, and I certainly like this one more than I liked the one from the Clone Wars pack. It isn't cell shaded, which is very nice. The textures look very nice, and they give Kit a frog like quality, which is good cause he's a Nautolan. He comes with team skins and purple and orange as well. (Oooh Aaaah) The Anakin reskins are reskins on NeoMarz's Anakin models. The first thing I noticed after comparing the textures is the head. The reskin has a much lighter skin tone, which I must say is nice, the eyes are also a different color. In the sith version only one of the eyes have changed to that freaky orange-red color. In other places it looks like the author has just lightened the skin tone by a lot, which is a small improvement. The hair has also been changed. Both of the jedi Anakin skins have team skins, while the sith Anakin skins do not. He comes in a robed and unrobed version. Which also applies for the sith version. The Obi Wan has a tunic similar to Qui Gon's. Which I suppose is fitting for when he is on Tatooine in Episode One. One of the two skins has team skins, while the other does not. He comes in a robed and unrobed version. And lastly, there is the Mace reskin. He also comes in both robed and unrobed versions. The tunic also looks very sandy, much like the Obi Wan and Qui Gon skins. Again, only one of them has team skins. A very big skin pack. I must say. I think that the author might have tried making the Qui Gon, Mace, and Obi Wan tunics look a bit more different. (Because they look almost identical to me) And while I love shiny things, having shaders on everything sometimes doesn't work out too well. But all in all, it is a very well done skin pack.

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.

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.

Kashyyyk

kashyyyk.zip | 8.36 MB

aggeess ago, and bizarrely it was very similar to this! :S However, I dropped that project, because it was just too difficult. What is this place? Its Kashyyyk, home of the Wookiee’s! Like I said, I tried to make a map of Kashyyyk, and I might still do one day. When I tried, it was a long time ago, and I wasn’t so good at mapping, suffice it to say, it was just too difficult, and so I had to drop it. When I tried it, I used giant Yavin tree models, but it was really difficult trying to build around them. However, this author has used models, but only as branches to the trees (see screenshots), the main trunks of which are actually made out of patch meshes I think. That would make it much easier I imagine to build stuff around the trees. I really am impressed by the way this author has tackled such a difficult subject. Its certainly inspired me to have another go at a Kashyyyk map :) The architecture of the buildings seems to have been inspired by the piece of KotOR (Knights of the Old Republic) concept art that is on the startup screen, and the author hasn’t done too bad in recreating the style. Some of my favourite architectural features, were the very cool supports that support the roofs of the buildings, they looked very nice ;) However, as with any map, theres always things that can be improved upon. One thing that did bug me a bit was the skybox, which was pretty plain really, it could have done with trees on it (im not sure how you could do that though :S) to make it look more “Kashyyyky”. However that must be very very difficult to do something like that, and make it look convincing, so im not really too bothered about that. The main points I think could be improved upon are: The fog around the edge of the map. It was a bit werid this, as there seemed to be a little strip of fog or something right around the edge of the terrain, but none in the middle. Im not sure if it was meant to obscure the edges of the map, but it just looked a bit weird :/ Secondly, and probably most importantly, there were no health powerups or weapons! NOOOO! :’( Another thing was that the tops of the trees, were just flat. It would have looked better if they tapered off towards the top, then had the branches (the tree models) around there. Lastly, the ramp that curved down round a tree, to what appeared to be a landing platform, was skewed or bent strangely in the middle. Im presuming that’s because it was a patchmesh, its not a massive problem, but it does look kinda weird. And that bugged me a bit. All in all a really cool map. I certainly loved playing it. It has good playability, i.e. there was plenty of room to duel or have an FFA (if there were any weapons :( ), and the fps wasn’t too bad either. My computer is probably upper mid-range in performance, and I was getting around 45-60 fps with all my settings on high. If you like Kashyyyk or Wookiee’s then you might like this, I certainly did :) I shall look forward to more maps from this author.

A simple yet, clever mod to an existing saber hilt, worthy of a download especially with Marz\' Darth Vader model.

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

Dark Forces Mod (Demo 2)

dfmod_demo_ja.zip | 194.51 MB

Forces was the first game in the Jedi Knight Series (Dark Forces, Dark Forces II: Jedi Knight, Jedi Knight, Jedi Knight II e.t.c), and it came out way way back when I got my first PC. In fact, the original game was probably the first FPS I ever played and in that respect I think I know the game pretty well :) This file is basically a remake of that game for Jedi Academy. What the team for this mod has done is taken the old game and completely transferred it onto JKA, new textures, new sounds, better all around you could say. There are three demo levels in this mod, all of them fairly large, but you have to play them in order, starting with the good old imperial base. I spawned in a small lift and the grate opens into a narrow corridor, exactly as I remembered it from the original game. Here comes my biggest and worst point about the entire first two levels of the demo. FPS. It's absolutely awful, and running around this level is absolutely horrifying. It doesn't go too low, i.e below 10, but in the cavern area it never goes above 20 either. If a little more attention to VIS had been used, and techniques such as area-portaling, some indoor areas could have been vastly improved. The same applies to the second city level. Whilst it looks fantastic, and the weather effects are stunning, the map may be verging on 'unplayable' for those with lower spec PC's. However, this is THE worst thing about the mod, because pretty much everything else is great :D (As you'd expect from three years work) After stealing the plans from the imperial base in level 1, you're treated to some remakes of the original cut-scenes which are very nice indeed. The downside is that the character's mouths don't move which looks a little silly, but the whole effect is simply jaw-dropping. This leads you onto Level 2. (My favourite) Set on a planet called Talay, a city-typed area called Tak-Base has come under fire from the imperial forces and their new 'secret' weapon (A.K.A Dark Trooper.) Spawning into this level and I was instantly greeted with some intense weather effects and some brilliant ambient noise. Then I was off through the city, trying to find the power generator. It was a pain at first as its so darn easy to get lost, but when you get there and turn all the lights on the city is much brighter and well, you get the idea. Onto the musical aspects. Each level comes with the same music it had in the original game, except remade so it isn't so midi-like. Whilst this is accurate to the game, they're not that amazing to listen to anymore, and the transition between the action music and the stealth music isn't always as smooth as it could have been. My example here would be the title credits you see when you first load a new game. Whilst the music is what it sounded like in the original game, it would have been much better to have put the orchestrated version here because it sounds so much better! There are a few new enemies to kick around, like the sewer monsters in level 3, but the animations need tweaking slightly to make them more lifelike. As they stand, they look like cardboard cut-outs when they die ;) The weapons here are also from the original game, but the two you'll use the most in this demo are pretty much the same as the JKA versions. (The Bryar pistol and the E11) You also get thermal detonators, but I was disappointed there were none of the cooler weapons available to test out. All health and ammo pickups have been altered to resemble those from the original game, as has the HUD. The startup menus have also been changed, now being more green and saying "Dark Forces" instead of Jedi Academy. But for the final, please get rid of the annoying button-click sounds, they are far too loud and repetitive! What else? I'm not going to go into describing the depth and detail of the levels because it would take far too long. Just have a look at the screenshots and then test it yourself to from your own opinion. :) Oh yes, the enemy AI. I don't know whether it's the default JKA which I'm criticising here, but sometimes I could be stood behind an enemy, or sometimes even in front of them and they wouldn't notice I was there, whilst other came after me from halfway around the level (Stupid interrogator droids ;) ) My favourite level was Talay because I love cityscapes, but the best to play was Anoat Sewers because the framerate there was vastly improved. I'm sure there's plenty more I've forgotten to mention, such as the cool cutscenes and briefing screens, but If you download the mod you can see for yourself! I believe with some fiddling this demo will also work on a MAC. Check the developer's website for more info. ~Szico VII~

Corel's 'SW KOTOR' Skin Pack

corels_kotor_skinpack.zip_.zip | 6.06 MB

there was a model pack category it would've gone in there, which should have told you by now that there are 3 models in this goody-bag file. So why is this so good? Well, firstly the models are from KOTOR, and i think (but not positive) that they were part of the game and have been used to port across to JKA. The same may be true of the skins but either way it's still a good job to the author for bringing them to JKA. My personal favourite is Darth Bandon, who looks very realistic, and i especially admire the facial work there. The clothes and everything are very professional. Take a look at the screenshots for a greater insight into them. The other 2 models/skins here are a Chewbacca lookalike and a 'Dark Jedi.' Not the most innovative names in existance, but this can be forgiven for the quality of this pack. The chewbacca isnt disimmilar from the default JKA version, and you may not find much of interest in that model, but the other two are definitely worth a look. My only criticism of the Dark Jedi is (aside from the name) the rather bland trousers and colour scheme. It's very detailed but a little plain. The final thing I looked at was the extras. All 3 models come with team skins red and blue, bot support, NPC support and new sounds. Personally I think thats quite an effort on its own, however, the sounds aren't all that brilliant. There are no chewbacca sounds (they come with the game) and the dark jedi ones sound too similar to the Reborn noises. Still, the Darth Bandon sounds are very good. Maybe I should be thanking the makers of KOTOR, but to be honest I dont really mind how they came to JKA, all that matters is that they did :) New Sounds: Yes Team Support: Yes Bot Support: Yes ~Szico VII~

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.

Attack of the Clones: Total Conversion Demo

aotctcdemo.zip | 53.15 MB

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. Keep at it guys! Great work! ~AmosMagee Ps. This review is like, dedicated to Plague, for no particular reason - except that he asked that I dedicate a review to him. ;)

Darth Malak Version 1.02

darthmalakv2.zip | 1.5 MB

(I hope that\'s right, if not, I shall keel Rhad) is finally modeled and added for Jedi Academy players. 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. The model still doesn\'t look that different than before, but you might want to download this updated version. :) Bot Support: Yes Team Colors: Yes New Sounds: Yes ~AmosMagee

Episode 2 Blades

ep2.blades_v3.zip | 270.16 KB

aren\'t that noticable, but the blue looks nicer :). The blades are also ever-so slightly thinner, and look a little different, but unless you look hard enough, you really wouldn\'t be able to tell the difference. :( The main thing about this mod is probably the new saber sounds (which are always welcome as part of a saber mod - Most people dont bother with new sounds) Now, although they are taken from the movie, they\'re obviously louder than the other lightsaber sounds, and stick out a bit. At first they\'re great, but they get annoying after a while, however you can always remove the sounds and keep the new colours, because the TimK has set up the file so you don\'t have to delete the whole file, just bits of it. :) The other thing about the sounds is that they sound a little \'obviously recorded\' if you see what i mean, they have a little static in some of them, and some of the lightsaber clash sounds sound more like explosions :r. Despite this, this is still a nice change from the original sounds and sabers, and for any Ep 2 fan they are a MUST-Download, because it\'s very accurate mod to the film :) ~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~

So, instead, here\'s what the author says this mod does: [quote]Basically this mod changes: Both of Alora\'s Clothes to be darker Boba Fett\'s Armor to look more like the one in ESB Chewbacca\'s fur to be darker The Cultist to look more sith like Galak Fyyar to be wearing a standard Imperial uniform, with an admirals badge The Gonk droid to be a more yellowish color The Human Merc to have gray clothes The Imperial officer’s clothes to be gray instead of bluish-gray The imperial workers clothes to be gray, with a green visor for the default skin, red for the red skin and blue for the blue skin The Jawa to have darker brown robes with smaller eyes Kyle Katarn to be wearing a Jedi robe Luke Skywalker to look more like he does in the movies The Noghri to be brown C-3P0 to look more like he did in the movies The rebel\'s multiplayers skins to be darker R2-D2 to have fewer scratches The reborn to look more Sith like The new reborn to also look more Sith like The reborn twin to look more Sith like The rocket trooper to be black Rosh’s Robes color to look more Jedi like The Snowtrooper\'s Multiplayer skins to look like the galactic marines armor color pattern TIE Fighter pilot’s eyes to look more stormtrooper like The stormtroopers to look more like the ones in the movies[/quote] As I said on my review of the previous version, I like some of them better than others, but there\'s definitely valid stuff in here. In short: if you\'ve ever wanted to see a better Gonk, Kyle in jedi clothing, a more shiny Boba Fett, grayscaled Sith, and more, give this mod a download. ;) -Caelum

Bane skin[/file] this entire site. All of that has just changed though - Hirman brings us Darth Bane. For those of us who have no idea who he is (or presumably, like me, never played KotOR read any Star Wars comics/novels), Wookieepedia has an article on the Sith in question right here. He's basically the guy who invented the Rule of Two. Regardless, this Darth Bane really isn't bad at all - I personally prefer the way it looks over the other one I linked to. It also comes with sounds, NPCs, bots & more. To me, it seems pretty accurate to the pictures of Bane I could find, and the skin & model are both of good quality. In fact, my only real gripe (aside from how teamskins really would be nice in a later version ;)), is clipping. Unfortunately, with the kind of clothes Bane is wearing, clipping is inevitable. I did notice several spots (arms, cloak, etc) where it might be fixable though, but I'm no expert. Still, this grand total of 3 Darth Banes to choose from (see screenshots) should more than satisfy all your Bane-related needs. ;) [b]Bot Support:[/b] Yep [b]NPC Support:[/b] Yep [b]New Sounds:[/b] Yep [b]Team Support:[/b] Nope -Caelum

Strike on Nar Shaddaa

siege_narshaddaa_v1_1.zip | 21.11 MB

can make excellent sandbox (Lugormod or Makermod, your pick) maps due to their being so large. Sadly, this map has proven to be a disappointment in that department, being a little too small for my taste. As a siege map, however... I can\'t really speak for what the actual gameplay will be like here, having no way to gather up testers within a reasonable amount of time. At the same time though, the author has stated that gameplay was the main focus here, so it should be up there in quality. The texturing, while a little simplistic, is effective. You can easily tell if you are inside or outside (even when ignoring the outside \'vistas\'), you aren\'t blinded by horrid texturing, and doors/paths are obvious. (Helped somewhat by the arrows on the floor.) The geometry is also simplistic, but less so than the texturing. Though it is, for the most part, gameplay oriented, there\'s still room for improvement. (Particularly around the interior doors that have no door frames.) There are numerous crates all over the place, offering points of cover from enemy fire. While not very geometry intensive, it\'s a good way to create easy points of cover fast. But at the same time, you shouldn\'t go overboard with these unless you\'re making a warehouse map. Also, I noticed a fair amount of geometry that was borrowed from Hoth Attack (mp/siege_hoth). While not a bad thing, it does help to avoid borrowing too much. (Before anybody panics, the siege_hoth source was released, and can be downloaded from here.) The lighting in each area is pretty uniform, with only slight hints of shadows near the light sources. While not phenomenal, it does get the job done for this map. I don\'t think there\'s any real room for improvement here, so we\'ll move on. In all, it\'s an ok map, but I have some suggestions for the author. -Wider variety of areas. As it is, most of the map rests on the same level, with very few areas that are above or below said level. Not only that, but most of the areas are the same. While this does promote a theme, it doesn\'t fit Nar Shaddaa\'s proper theme. Look at [file=\"105657\"]this[/file] map. (Ignoring that I helped make it.

Zero Suit Samus v2

zerosuit.zip | 6.51 MB

skin when I see one. Having seen the original version of the skin, and after looking up some pictures on the internet I can say that overall this skin is much more accurate than the last version. The shoes particularly look much improved. For some reason many of the shoes/boots in JKA look far too pointy and far too flat, which is a problem the last version suffered from, but the new versions shoes look much more like the reference pictures I looked at, so a thumbs up there! :thumbsup: The hair on the previous version however seemed to be more accurate to the reference pictures I found; a bright yellowy blonde, as opposed to the more realistic and natural coloured blond on this skin. That isn't really a big deal though, for one amazing thing I should point out about the hair is that it appears to have its own specular textures! I have never seen this before, and the effect is pretty amazing, even though the hair is obviously only a tiny part of the skin. Actually seeing the shine off the hair change as you move the camera looks great and makes a big difference in the realism of the skin, so another thumbs up there! :thumbsup: I must point out though, that if you do not see the skin in your skin selection menu when you go ingame, don't be alarmed, the skin is there, but you have to select it from the skin customization menu. This I found somewhat odd, since you cant actually customize the skin, there are no extra heads or legs, so the skins you select from the torso menu represent the whole skin. Unless the author is planning on adding more components for the customization menu later on, this really seems like an odd and not particularly good thing to do, since initially I was wondering why no Samus skins were showing up in the skin selection menu. So I have to say a bit of a thumbs down there. :thumbsdown: Apart from that though this is an excellent mod, the skins look fantastic and there are a variety of colours to choose from. A must download for Samus and Metroid fans here! Keep up the good work Tyrael64, this is most impressive and I look forward to seeing more skins of this quality from you! :) [b]New Sounds:[/b] Yes [b]Bot Support:[/b] No [b]Team Support:[/b] No ~Nozyspy~

Demon Stormtrooper (TK-945)

tk945_by_icefox.zip | 11.48 MB

here (Remember, though, the majority of players can't or don't use it). So, TK-945 has made a stormtrooper reskin. It's a very simple reskin overall - the armor has been darkened to the point where it is a dark gray, and the jumpsuit (or whatever that is underneath) has been turned bright red and given a glow. Also, red stripes were painted on the arms. Black and red always seem to flow well together, so there really isn't much to critique about the color scheme. However, the design is quite simplistic - it feels like more could be added without detracting from the quality. Personally, I think it still needs work in this area. No team skins were included. Bummer, too - we could've seen a blue variant as well. I like blue. :) No new sounds...just Kyle. That was a big bummer - you need new sounds for something like this. Even a simpler skin like this, given sounds, can be taken to a whole new level. Well, that's it, folks. You know what to do if you're interested. ~Dretzel

Julio's Texture Overhaul (Playable Characters) Part 1

67julios_texture_overhaul_pc_part_1.zip | 28.58 MB

package from JulioC! First I shall give an overall statement on the production of these textures, quoted from the readme: [quote]1) Take the skin and make two variations, a very bright one (over exposed) and a very dark one (under exposed). 2) Combine those two and the original file to make an HDR (High Dynamic Range - wider array of colors, contrast, brightness, etc.) 3) Post-process it in Photoshop: sharpness, colors, levels, additional things, etc. 4) Compile the mod as a .pk3, zip it up, and upload it.[/quote] Sounds simple, no? But sometimes simple things can be quite effective. Is this the case? Read on to find out! The first character that has had a texture upgrade is Boba Fett. To be honest, the dark parts look way to dark, but the light parts look alright. Teams skins have had the same process applied to them, and have the same drawback of looking a bit too dark. Next up is the cultist. Imagine the default cultist with all his clothes desaturated and darkened, with what appears to be blood and dirt all over them, plus a desaturated and partially cracked face with sith-style eyes, and you'd have this skin. It actually looks pretty cool in my own personal opinion, but I wasn't fond of the hands not matching the face. Red team skin is almost the same as the default skin, but with a bit more red to the clothing. The rest of the skins for this model appear to be the default textures with the quoted process applied to them. Now onto Desann. It seems that he has been almost completely desaturated, with some red on his head and some yellow-orange on one of his arms and belt. Team skins are the same as default with the exception of a bit of red or blue on them, depending on the team. And of course, they have had the above process applied to them. Then we get to the Jawa. This one has only had the above process applied to it, and seem to be lacking any changes to team skins. And here comes Kyle! Desaturate his clothes and apply the above process, then add some dirt to his face, and you've got this skin. Team skins simply change the shirt color and the stripe on his pants to red or blue. Moving on, we get to Mr. Racto and the human mercs. They all have had the same process applied to them, but the merc has had his clothes desaturated as well. Team skins for the merc simply add in some of the proper colors to the clothes. The Reborn_New model's default and team skins have been upgraded with the above process as well, and appear to have been shot in the chest a couple times. The Shadowtrooper appears to have been completely desaturated. The above process seems to have been applied, but to a lesser degree than the others, as the dark parts aren't extremely dark. It appears to have had a cool texture applied to the armor though. Team skins have the proper color added to the head, back, hands, and legs. Honestly, I think that all this one needs is color to the force crystal in the chest. Finally, we have the Stormtrooper. It's a bit hard to tell if the above process was applied to this skin. Why? It's covered in what appears to be blood and dirt. Team skins are the same as the default skins, but with stripes of color on it, and the officer skin's different from the default skin is simply the shoulder pad. Honestly, I liked the original Stormtrooper better than this one. To be honest, the Reborn skins were my favorites of the bunch. Too many of them had their dark parts way too dark for my tastes. But, that's just me, and others may not agree. Best way to tell is to give it a download and see for yourselves!

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

Hirman's Asajj Ventress - 'Fixed' Final

hirmans_assajjventressfixedfinal.zip | 9.34 MB

in that are based on models and/or skins from The Clone Wars mini-film, as well as the TV series. I'm actually becoming quite fond of it! With the Forcemod developer's permission, the author decided to reskin Asajj Ventress with a ''new look.'' For those of you who've seen the Forcemod version of Asajj Ventress, you'll definitely notice some major changes on the author's version. One of the most obvious modifications is the improved shaders. This definitely gave the skin a lot more flavor, and style. Apart from the shaders, the author decided to totally overhaul leather textures. With both of these improvements, it makes Asajj shine like a queen. Or wait, I mean hellishly cynical Dark Jedi... >_> Other than the shaders and the leather textures, there were minor touch-ups done to the skin itself to make it look better. One last addition that filled me with childish excitement (just kidding), was the new sounds! The author read my mind and added sounds from the TV Series. Isn't that exciting? I must say that the new sounds definitely added a bonus onto this skin. Overall, this is an excellent reskin of Asajj Ventress. It just makes me want to watch the Clone Wars TV series right now. Anyways, all I really saw that needed some improvement was the legs, and some of the chest. Maybe it's just me, but It still seems a bit plain. Nevertheless, I could be wrong, so I'm sure everybody will have their doubts about my opinion. Although, as stated by the author himself, this is the final version of this skin in the sense that he's satisfied with his work; no questions asked. All in all, this is definitely worth a download if you love The Clone Wars TV series, and love Asajj Ventress as well! :P ~Syyrax[/quote] First of all of course, I have to point out the obvious and say that the last version obviously wasn’t the [i]Final[/i] version, since here we have a new version! As Sith J Cull once said of maps “A map is never finished, just released”, which is why I never think it is a good idea to say anything is a [i]Final[/i] version, since you never know what the future might bring! :P Anyway, here we have a Fixed Final version! This is mostly the same as the last version, except that Hirman has improved the face textures to look more like the character from the Clone Wars TV series (which I was actually watching just the other day, since I bought the Vol. 1 DVD – A Galaxy Divided). Overall this is an excellent skin, and it is always good to see more improvements on an already great skin! Lastly, I think if you ever decide to make another version in the future Hirman, there are a few things which I think could be improved: [*]Make the robed and no skirt versions available as default skins, not just as the team skins. [*]Some of the textures, such as the belt and around the waist should be a bit sharper and higher resolution I think. Other than that, excellent job here, and I look forward to seeing more of your work Hirman! ::D [b]New Sounds:[/b] Yes [b]Bot Support:[/b] Yes [b]Team Support:[/b] Yes ~Nozyspy~

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~

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~

Futurama PC Pack

futurama_ambrom.zip | 21.74 MB

with this show, it's on Comedy Central. If you want more information on the show's main plot, you can find it here: [b][url="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Futurama"]Futurama[/url][/b] The first thing you'll notice about these models is the cel-shading. For those of you who don't know what cel-shading is, it's basically a technique used on skins & models to make them more cartoonish perse. As you can see, these models look just like the actual characters from the show. Cel-shading was actually a very good idea for this model pack because It gives you the feel of actually being in Futurama. Or is that just me? The first model in the pack is Fry. Fry is the main character in the popular show, and if you've watched Futurama from the beginning, you'd know his full story. The author did a great job on the textures of Fry. The cel-shading definitely added to the amazing features. Fry actually comes with two versions: With his jacket, and without it. Both versions are very good, and I didn't see any real problems with the actual model. The next model in the line-up is Bender. Unfortunately, I think the author made a boo-boo, because you can't change to the model in-game due to an unsupported model error. I'm sure the Author can fix this in a version two, but meanwhile, you'll all have to suffer through the fact that you can't play as Bender with this pack! >_> Last but not least, we have Leela. Yes, the cyclops with two ya-ya's and one eye! Strange, isn't it? Oh well. Anyways, once again, the author did a great job on this model. My only problem with Leela is when you look up, the back of her head looks squareish. Now, I'm not sure if this was intentional, or something you couldn't really fix. Although, I'd like to see it have more of a round look in a possible version two. Besides, when was the last time you'll saw a person walking around with a square head? Lately? Nope. Ah, I almost forget the sound files! You'll also notice that the taunts are quite funny, and are quotes directly from the show. I would tell all of you what they are, but I wouldn't wanna ruin the surprise now would I? Also, there's a hidden npc in this model pack, and it's none other than Lars himself from [i]Bender's Big Score[/i], the first Futurama movie. I'll leave it to all of you to figure out the npc name.... Overall, this is an awesome model pack, and the cel-shading makes it so much more like the actual characters in the show. I'm pretty sure you'll all have hours of fun playing as Fry, and Leela! Unfortunately, as I said, Bender is unplayable at the moment. Hopefully Ambrom can fix the model file in the next version. This is definitely worth a download if you are a fan of [i]Futurama[/i]. [b]New Sounds:[/b] Aye [b]Bot Support:[/b] Aye [b]Team Support:[/b] Nay [b]NPC Support:[/b] Aye (Also a secret npc) ~Syyrax

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!

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.

Battle of Mygeeto

definitely not a bad thing. So if you hadn\'t noticed, this map is a siege map. I know a lot of people will [i]love[/i] that, but naturally there will be others that will say \"Darn, if only it was a free for all map!\" In either case, the map is very well put together and is bound to impress any prequel enthusiast, and the fact that it\'s a siege map only makes it more impressive. I found the detail in the brushwork to be most enticing -- the complex nature of the designs was enough to win me over. The texturing is also very much fitting, as is the overall ambiance which is greatly enhanced by adequate lighting. But the thing that really brings the entire map together is the skybox. The skybox itself is beautiful, and aside from a few obvious mismatches with the bridge lights it looks almost perfect. This map is definitely one of those you should pick up, and I certainly hope that when the author has this map up to the level he wants it that he releases a non-siege version. I\'m sure it would do just as well, if not better, in the downloads department. [b]Bot Support[/b]: Yes [b]New Textures[/b]: Yes [b]New Sounds[/b]: Yes [b]New Music[/b]: Yes ~Inyri

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

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.

Twilight Princess Master Sword

alive and kicking. As you no doubt have guessed, this is a reskin of potentially one of the best known fantasy swords in existence: the Master Sword from the Legend of Zelda series. There have been many renditions of this sword over the years, from the pixellated NES and SNES versions to some pretty cool 3d variants. This particular replica is meant to represent the Master Sword as seen in the 2006 game Twilight Princess. From what I\'ve been able to gather, the skin is relatively accurate. Not perfect, but more than passable. The actual [i]model[/i] is a little... ginormous, and not 100% accurate, but that\'s no fault of this author nor is it anything that can be changed through a skin. Not a bad replica. Using what was available, I\'d say it\'s pretty close to the original and would make a fine addition to any Legend of Zelda collection! ~Inyri

find changed is the torso texture, which was taken from another skin. The texture is still incredibly dark, and that\'s a major minus. Granted, I don\'t mind dark, but I hate them when you\'re supposed to see some kind of detail. Rather detracting. The Blue team skin is basically the only place you can see some minor detail, but honestly, I would suggest brightening up your textures. I don\'t think the masses wish to strain their eyes to view the detail. However, if you like what your eyes are transfering to your brain, by all means, submit bandwidth.

bd_sp.zip | 13.55 MB

basics, you get a partial tradeoff for your Single Player adventure: imperials for battle droids. Personally I like the trade off, but naturally there are flaws. However, the author mentioned the voice problem, so scot-free for now. Hm..an army of cyborgs..yes. I think that shall do wonderfully. Oh yes, offer your bandwidth, if not for the change in combat, then for the fact that you\'ll need those machines TO DEFEND AGAINST MY CYBORG ARMY. - Averus Retruthan

Movie Realism SP Mod

movie_realism_sp_mod.rar | 301.63 KB

creativity or effort. The author basically attempted to adjust all the stats in the base .npc and .veh files along with a couple of mods he coupled with it, (giving credits to their authors.) and made the action more \"realistic.\" First off, what kind of moving picture set are you talking about? You included bloody dismemberment, and I don\'t recall any drop of blood ever portrayed in the Star Wars movies and/or games you mention. The blood vessels get seared shut, if I\'m not mistaken, although I do wish blood and gore would be displayed on the big screen. (I made an entire remake of the trilogy with blood and gore once.) Now then, onto technical aspects. The stats are good, but the installation may be way over some folk\'s heads. The author expects you to basically know how to use winrar (since he submitted a rar) on a slightly higher level...bad assumption. In English, he just put the ext_data folder in the rar and caled it a day. It made the .rar very messy, and almost confusing. (Definitely for those who don\'t mess around in pk3s) Overall, this is for the bored souls out there who play SP and want a change. The bloody dismemberment mod can work in MP, and everything else is made basically for SP. With that said, I shall go forth and raise an undead army and march to Bangladesh. - Averus Retruthan

another skin with Jan with some fishnetting under the bra.

ROTS_DARTH_VADER

darthvaderepisodeiii.zip | 2.52 MB

so I am happy to say that this particular author felt kind enough to grace us with a comparison shot between his skin, the original, and what he has dubbed a "common" reskin (although I've never noticed this model to be commonly reskinned!). The comparison is actually very important, as it shows some of the important differences. And there [i]is[/i] a difference. A big one. My first thought was "Wow, he actually did something noticible!", something I'm not entirely used to. But this reskin, I have to say, looks leaps and bounds better than the original, and quite a bit better than his "common" reskin example too. I only have two complaints, actually. Maybe three, if you count the team colors being the same as the default. Complaint 1: I would have preferred a happy medium between the helmet shader on the "common reskin" version and this version. It just doesn't seem shiny enough, but the other seems a bit too shiny. Complaint 2: The cape looks awfully flat. NPC, team, and bot support have all been included, as well as the Vader sounds you have come to expect from such skins. Would I recommend this skin? You betcha. It's realistic, it's got all the goodies, and it just looks awesome. Any RotS fan who passes this skin up should be forced to do pushups.

Luke Single Player Mod

spluke_v2.zip | 1.68 MB

single-player, and also includes a version with only one glove (called the "Return of the Jedi" version). This mod will also make Luke's lightsaber a selectable option in the saber menu. Since version one, the author has also replaced Luke's character in the single-player storyline. It seemed kind of odd to him to have Luke talking to Luke, so Luke has been replaced with the author's favorite Jaden combination (the most "robe" looking torso/legs, plus the brown haired head). All the details seem to be ironed out, except of course the ones that really can't be, like the voice overs, but for a single-player Luke mod this seems as complete as any. Definitely give it a look-see if you're a Luke fan and want to see him beating up Tavion. ~Inyri

Academy 1.2

a1_v1.2.zip | 8.61 MB

But, I'll just start with the first one. The first floor is the ground floor, with three dueling rooms, an npc room, a training room, and a cantina, among a few other things. Two of the three dueling rooms are identical, each with a dueling area and seats so you can watch the duel in comfort, as well as an observation box on the wall. The third on, is more of a hazardous duel area, involving a pit. Although, you don't die when you hit the ground, making it a somewhat safer duel area. Also an interesting one, seeing as the person up top is likely to slash you as you come up. The npc room is extremely simple, almost too simple. It only spawns three npcs, all various brands of cultist. I found one small bug, or rather, minor issue. If you spawn the noc, and then just stand there, the npc will spawn, and the door will open, but it will close, leaving the npc in there. So you have to spawn another npc and then fight them both. This might be seen as a good thing, or a bad thing, to some. I would've The training room, was very simple. In one corner, was a box where you could spawn a sentry droid, in the center of the room was a small area from which you could spawn a R5 unit, or Kyle. Yay! Let's all kill Kyle! There is an observation box on the wall, as well. Okay, now go outside. Yes! There's an outside! It's very spacious as well. It had some custom areas, but a lot of it was bare, as in, there wasn't much there. There were trees, but they just seemed a bit too spread out to me. One thing I did like about this was the waterside area. It was very casual, made just for those who want to sit and talk by the water. I didn't like the way the water was done, at least in the river. But water [i]is[/i] a hard thing to do, so that doesn't really matter. The cantina, was, well, a cantina. Albeit a small one. It had a nice little stage on it, as well as a small bar off to the corner, with a storage room. The main area was taken up by chairs. There were a few alcoves in the cantina, but not very many. And, last up for the bottom floor, is the arena! Great idea. Nothing better than a good old arena. This is a small indoor arena, which isn't bad in and of itself. While great for FFA's and such, it would be very nice, and cool, if you could spawn a rancor behind a gate, and have the gate open. Fight on! But, other than that, it's not bad. Okay, I think that that's about it on the bottom floor. On to the next one! The second floor is a lot simpler, with only five areas. It has an Audience Chamber, as Tournament Chamber, what I think it a teachers area, and finally, an area that leads to the next floor, and the main little entrance area, which is actually the center of the floor. The main little area isn't all that big, it just has a tree surrounded by water. The two areas off to the side are the teachers room, which consists of a few beds and a bathtub. The second area is the tournament room, which is like a dueling area, only with chairs on the side, and a observation box. Not that much. The audience chamber is a lot like the chamber seen in single player, except the windows on the side are huge. I think that they're a little too big. Someone might walk out through the window and die. Okay. The last floor. Yay! I feel like I'm writing a book. First, you go up a long elevator, and then you finally get to the top floor! And it only has two rooms, a council room and a sun deck. The sun deck is very nice, being sunny and all, it's a great place to socialize, get a drink, take a nap, read a book, or use a terminal. And that's what you can do! Great social area. However, the shelves in this area just seemed to stick out like a sore thumb, so that's one thing that could use a bit of change. And finally, the council room. Well, it's a council room, with lots of chairs in a circular area. Am I done? No. There's still the Admin room. It's dark, to say the least. and from it you can lock various rooms, and areas of the map. I would have liked it if, when you locked a room, a ''locked'' message would be displayed. But that's me. I did find some bugs. When the cantina was locked, I would go and press the button, and I would hear the cantina music. Meh. The other major thing was the lighting. In places this was a very dark, or less than ideally lit. But, this is a great map for clans in general, or just simple RPG's. So if you like this, or if your clan could use a nice map to use, then give this a download. Bot Support: Sadly, No. New Models: Yes. New Music: No New Textures: Yes GameTypes: FFA, TFFA, Duel ~Zach

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.

Yoda

yodadd.zip | 1.36 MB

fixed for JA or anything. Since I can\'t really find any differences, I was going to just leave you with the original model\'s read-me, but it wasn\'t very descriptive either. Oh well. I guess I can say a few things about the model, created by Team Yoda, since I can\'t figure out what\'s different between the two versions. The model itself is quite accurate. It even has Yoda\'s thinning hair. Since the model is the correct proportions, it doesn\'t fit on the skeleton really well, so some of the animations are a bit off, and the weighting was done very oddly. They did with what they had though, I assume. The shoulder areas don\'t seem to deform that well (though in my opinion that\'s the hardest area to weight!) and the back of the robe is weighted to a different part then the front, so there\'s some clipping of the front part of the robe into the back. The skin, however, is excellent, especially the face. This (or the original) is definitely worth your download if you\'re a Yoda fan. Just do us a favor.

Mortal Kombat Scorpion

mk_scorpion.zip | 635.85 KB

played Mortal Kombat in years. My mom always stood fast by the 'no blood' rule when I was a kid... :/ Anyway, after searching several pages of google image search I discovered that the broken yellow pattern [i]was[/i] accurate, depending on which pictures you look at. For a cultist reskin, I really like it. For being this author's first skin, it's quite good. I'm assuming he has some previous photoshopping experience, as many of the textures look drastically different. I'm not a Moral Kombat fan, per se, but Scorpion and Sub Zero were a couple of my favorite characters (I was young, what can I say?) so it does bring back some fond memories of being naughty and playing MK at other peoples' houses when I wasn't supposed to. We're even lucky enough to get the "Get over here!" taunt, which even I remember. Team skins are also included, rightfully dubbed "Sub Zero" and "Ermac." If you're a Mortal Kombat fan, I'd say this is one of the better skins out there. Well done, for a first skin!

Coruscant Streets

coruscantstreets.zip | 21.89 MB

worth another look for me, because I really hate having to shut down all of my programs, restart, start everything back up again, load the map - only to have it crash again. So, Black Hunter, let me start by saying that this map looks great when you consider the screenshots. Anything that\'s Coruscant Streets-like is going to appeal to me. I love this theme. However, you screwed up in some MAJOR ways. There are several missing textures. The music doesn\'t fit this map AT ALL. You\'ve added posters that just aren\'t consistant with the Coruscant theme and really cheapen the atmosphere that it seems you wanted to create here. And finally, worst of all, I was getting about 9 FPS in some areas. It\'s a pretty map at first glance, but don\'t judge a book by its cover. This map has some serious flaws and it needs to be fixed. It\'s too big, sluggish, inconsistant visually and musically and it crashed my computer. I never, ever, ever rate maps. At least, not to my recollection. However, to make my point completely clear that making good maps are about how the map plays, I\'ll rate this one and I\'ll give it a 2/10. And that\'s generous of me. You get 2 points simply for making a map that does work, and almost getting the theme right. Bot Support: Yes New Textures: Yes New Music: Yes Game Types: FFA, TFFA, CTF ~AmosMagee

-=AFL=- Korriban: Resurrection

afl_kor_res.zip | 5.55 MB

map. It\'s beautiful and the layout is good. Thankfully, it seems the spawn points are all in one rooms - so that\'s good for FFA\'s. If only the FPS were higher for me, darn it. So I first spawn in this room of rock and an apparently open ceiling for stargazing. Tall curved pillars flank either side and a small door opens up into a hallway that leads to the room with the platforms that float up and down on the lava. The platforms do disappear for a moment, but I didn\'t get any damage from walking on the lava when they did. I ventured further through more hallways and finally found myself here. And by here, I mean the room with the grates on the floor. Never has a cliche worked like \"Curiousity killed the cat\" works here. I find my way down into the sandy pit and I\'m immediately greeted by a big Rancor who\'s eager to add to his collection of bones. So I \"noclipped\" out. *giggle* Then I found myself deeper in this map where it seems there were a bunch of tombs or something. Ooooh ... and then ... there was the coolest elevator I ever saw. In a place like this, you just can\'t have the latest technology in elevators, y\'know? I don\'t know if this kind of elevator is featured in the game or if this is purely the author\'s creation - but I loved it! You press a button by the lift, step on, and then you watch as you go up and a big block goes down. Yes, I\'m amused easily. :P Okay, so there\'s bot support and there\'s one new texture - you\'ll find it on the elevator button. :) The music is from Return of the Jedi, I believe. Bottom line, I like this map. Unfortunately, it\'s not practical for me unless I turn my graphics way down and I just don\'t want to do that.

WB Academy - Fists of Fury

wba-fury.zip | 3.02 MB

as in melee, instead you get fists like sabers - but without the saber! Quantum Surge was my personal favorite, the dual stance gives you two glowing hands that if you perform a special with, spin round just like the sabers would, but instead appear as balls of fire/lightning, looks very cool! Another cool thing is as you run around, your flaming/burning, whatever, fists leave trails behind them, most noticable were the acid hands that leave a green and black trail. Unfortunately as the readme says, this mod still relies heavily on the standard saber animations, so unless you use dual stance, you\'ll get some pretty weird affects! Performing a single heavy stance attack with glowing hands looks rather odd! However, the vast number of new effects and sounds greatly outweight that little problem and it\'s a great alternative to sabers. It\'s like playing Mortal Kombat mixed with a bit of Dungeons and Dragons or some other strange combination. What I would suggest is remove the saber marks from the floors/walls in the next version, and remove the sounds, all of this can be done using the .sab files thanks to the 1.01 patch. Oh Luke, Tavion, Kyle and the Imperial officer will all use the new stuff as well which makes it far more interesting! Almost forgot this too! Lightning has been replaced with Force Flame or something like that, new sound effects for that too - but they\'re quite irritating admittedly, too repetative in a droning fashion. -WadeV1589-

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

Of course, Shroom had released many maps prior to that, such as the Clan WoV map, Hail the Boognish, and many more obscure maps. Well, it has been 11 months since we have seen work from the Duck. But now that JKA has been released, [b]the Duck is back![/b] And Shroom brings his personal vision of what the death star really should have been. Sit back, and enjoy the ride. As soon as you enter the map, you are greeted with a techno mix of Darth Vader\'s music. Somehow, the music fits the traditional Shroom style of... eclectic music. :D The main hangar area looks similar to that of the hangar area found in JK2, except this one has more goodies. For instance, in the middle you will find the Millenium Falcon. Look at the ceiling and you will notice a large tube jutting from the ceiling. It\'s a stormtrooper dispenser! It doesn\'t appear to serve any real purpose, but it is rather hilarious when you drop a stormtrooper over someone\'s head! Perpendicular to this module is a button that allows you to open the bay doors, and do some exploring on the outside. Not too much to see out here, but if you wait, you\'ll see a tie fighter drift past. :P Scattered about the rest of the maps are various control rooms, and down in the depths there is a generator room. Did I mention that this is Shroom\'s first star wars-flavored map for JK? If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought this was a default map that Raven made for JKA. But it isn’t! It is exactly how the Death Star should’ve looked and functioned in JK2. So nice to see the Duck back in action. I can’t wait for future map releases for JKA! Keep ‘em coming, Shroomer. :D ~Lord Griever~ [b]New textures – Yes New Music – Yes Bot Support – Yes[/b]

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 Lord from TOR

22sith_lord_from_tor.zip | 4.29 MB

skin of that anonymous Sith man. So, I guess I\'ve missed some things, as I don\'t recall seeing this guy without a mask, but whatever. Skinned off of Hapslash\'s infamous Anakin model, I gotta say this guy looks really ugly. Not quality ugly but character ugly. I don\'t know what it is with Bioware and disfigured Sith Lords(although that seems to be a trend all throughout Star Wars as well,) but this guy\'s face looks like he tried to shave with his lightsaber one afternoon and paid dearly for it. Now that\'s what the actual character looks to have done; the SKIN, however, seems to have taken it to the next level. It looks far more severe, and it looks like it was just delivered. It reminds me a lot of the saber scorchmarks that show up on characters in singleplayer. Otherwise, does it look like the character in question? Eh...not really. Just looks like a sith anakin with mandalorian chest plating and interesting wrist gauntlets. All in all, it\'s not a terrible first skin, but I reckon a lot of face work will need to be done before it looks anything like the guy in those pictures. Either way, welcome to the moddin\' community and good luck with your future projects ._.! Bot Support:Aye NPC Support:Aye New Sounds:Aye Team Support:Nay - Averus Retruthan

Darth Malak's Lightsaber Hilt

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

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~

JK3 Expanded

jk3_expanded.zip | 976.26 KB

called JK3 Expanded and basically is a set of new singleplayer missions set on both singleplayer and multiplayer maps which aim to explain those bits we never got to see in Jedi Academy, like; what happened when the Cult of Ragnos landed on Hoth? Well according to this mod they had to fight there way through hoards of mercenaries and Wampa's before they could set up camp and start siphoning all that force energy. During this particular mission you play as a Cultist, and to help you out you have a large gaggle of Snowtrooper's who follow you around and help you with your mission. Unfortunately there aren't any cutscenes or ingame objectives, which is somewhat disappointing, but Foreborn promises us he will work on these things for future projects. As for mission objectives, there are a list of ones you have to accomplish on each level, in the readme, so you know when you have finished the level. Be aware though, that for this to work you will need to put the save games included in this .zip in your gamedata/base/saves folder and then load them up in singleplayer to play them. Despite the fact that there are no ingame objectives or cut scenes I did have some good fun with this mod, especially on Hoth with all those Snowies following you around. Yes I said Snowies, it means Snowtrooper's, I just invented that word, right now. Those of you who read this are witnesses to a historic moment! Go forth and use the word Snowies everywhere! :P Ehem, anyway... The most annoying bug I came across was that on some levels all the textures are missing on the player character. Obviously if you are in 1st person mode this doesn't matter, but if your in 3rd person mode, using a Lightsaber, this becomes rather annoying. All the same though, overall this is a pretty fun mod and I hope to see future versions of it with cutscenes and ingame objectives, then it would be great! Keep up the good work Foreborn! :) ~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.

TFU Push V2

tfu_push_v2.zip | 8.34 MB

command This mod pleases Authuran. As a fan of The Force Unleashed, I have been wishing someone would make the push from it into our beloved game. And we have it. Not a perfect replica, I will admit. The push from the game sent out some crazy purple and blue thing from it. Yes, thing. I can't think of any other word to describe it. Anyways, this mod is great for people who love to use the force, people who love to spawn NPCs, and people who just love seeing other people fly away at incredible speeds! This mod certainly pleases Authuran. Not before have we got a super-push-new-effect-new-animation mod that can live up to this one. Certainly a high quality replication from the game, and from what I could find, only one bug. In singeplayer, if you try a melee move, if you end up picking up the person and throwing them, the NPC will fly at incredible speed, even if you don't use push on them. But if you make a version 3, it would be fantastic, especially if it didn't modify melee combat, and if you could make that crazy purple and blue thing that flies out of his hands when he pushes someone. I have no clue if that is possible as I am not an effect maker, but if it is, it would be nice. I recommend this mod, certainly no typical waste of hard drive. Enjoy. ~Authuran

Hirman's Ahsoka Tano

hirmans_ahsoka_tano.zip | 8.12 MB

move the file queue, so here I go. What we have here today is a new model to our collection. Not just a random model though, it's Ashoka Tano, Anakin's Apprentice from the recent Clone Wars Animated Series (the 3D ones, for those who spent last year under a rock or something :P ). Because it comes in 3 variants I'll try to describe them one after another. The first one is obviously, the default one. It shows how Ashoka looks in most of the episodes, with her normal bra-shirt, gauntlets, skirt, leggings and leather boots. As much as it comes to accuracy it looks pretty decently. The model could use some work still, because some parts are inaccurate. For example there is complete lack of gloves, even though Ashoka had gloves that were a part of the gauntlets. Another thing is head, which looks a bit too square, but that could be just me. The second variant is the same as the first with the exception that it has a backpack. The very same one in which Ashoka carried Jabba's son in the movie. The backpack looks nice and accurate so there's nothing else I can say about this one. Finally the last one, which is hooded version of Ashoka. She carries a cloak with a hood that covers up her lekku and bends in the same place where lekku bend, so that's a good thing, since I've seen a few Twi'lek hooded skins with hoods that didn't form as they should because of the lekku. Sadly, the hood suffers from a bit of clipping in animations (you can see head stick out on the back of the hood aswell as it's sides) while cape is as stiff as on VaderVM. That would be all when it comes to this variat, now time for a bit of criticism on texturing.. or maybe lack of it. The whole model seems to have the textures photosourced from many images that could be found on google which makes it look well, not up to the "good" standard. Photosourcing shouldn't be done unless you know what you're doing, in this case I can safely assume the person wanted to finish it fast, but it turned out as it shouldn't. The "textures" are blurry, you can see straight away they were copied and they lack accuracy. The face is the biggest issue really, beacuse of the photosourcing, it looks stiff, unreal. The lekku Have pretty much no shading or detail at all, cape suffers from the same issue. The leggings have wrong color, they were white with slight addition of pink, not pink as the author made them. I suggest looking into those details if V2 is ever going to be released. Overall it's a good start, but in my eyes it's more of a unfinished product, fixing up the problems would really give a lot of love to this model and surely get more attention to it. As a side note I'd like to add that there are also team skins and new sounds, so don't worry. Last thing I've got to say, is that the author suggested using Ashoka's lightsaber hilt made by Ashura, so if you want a "complete experiance", I suggest you grab it :) Now please submit some bandwidth if this model fits your taste. Team skins: Yes. New Sounds: Yes. Bot Support: Yes. NPC Support: Hey look, again yes. -Schrödinger

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

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~

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

Yaleck Vos

yaleck_vos.zip | 35.2 MB

for my text-art-problem stems from the fact that it seems the actual posted review can't handle multiple spaces... or something. It squishes things all together on the left. For shame. My mad skillz aside, it's not often we get quite as large a skinpack as this. This author's mad skills may even rival my own. O_= What we have here is Quinlan Vos, and he's been pimped if I do say so myself! I wasn't even aware that the Quinlan Vos model had this many model parts. I would think that the author modeled it himself, but he says [quote]New Models: no (but some new model options are now unhidden)[/quote] Very quickly though I'd like to complement the author on his thoroughness of crediting those whose work he used. Bravo, my good man. Very nice credits. SO. You are the first to discover this vault of wonderfulness that the Quinlan Vos model was hiding. And I am the first to review it. Excellent. Such a... tasty file. This thing is so full of customization and variation it will make your head spin and will possibly make RPers faint, fall off their chair, and break their head open on the nearest sharp furniture corner (Not that it happened to me... >_>) The variety of choices is breathtaking and makes this quite possibly the ultimate male customization pack. Ever. The best part of this skinpack, aside from the amazing skinning and new model parts, you may ask? It's a species pack. Pick and choose your parts, people. The options range from good old Jedi Vos to cybernetic commando Vos, Old Man Vos, Grim Reaper Vos, gladiator Vos, Vos as a black guy, Vos as a scantily-clad barbarian, or my personal favorite which is Pilot Vos. There are so many choices, not only in model parts, but in skins. The amount of high-quality skins for every imaginable piece of clothing is, again, breathtaking. Using one torso he is able to create skins ranging from Hoth Clothing to Forest Camo to a commoner's tunic, and all of the skins are spectacular. Hell, there's even a skin named 'Bob' which consists of the Black Vos with a sexy, skintight green-yellow-red muscle shirt, track pants, and sneakers. The only skinning problem I have are the blue streaks on the face - they look a bit out-of-place-unrealistic; they aren't skin textured and look rather plasticky. That's such a small part though and is barely noticeable. This pack is so massive that you're going to have to do most of the exploring on your own; it would take pages upon pages to write about everything. The screenshots offer just a small sampling of what's inside, and I just scratched the surface in my review. There's also some cool little things he added in like some great icon effects (Such as in the species customization menu in the Color Selection section). This guy has thought of nearly everything from species support for different language versions of the game to NPCs and Bot Support (Which most people leave out now-a-days). Go now, and revel in these riches. New Models: Technically ja. Species Customization: Ja. New Sounds: Technically nej. Team Colors: Ja. New Shaders: Ja. Bot Support: Ja. NPC Support: Ja. ~Laam'inui

Star Wars Stances Animated For JA+

star_wars_stances_animated_for_ja_ver_3.zip | 9.39 MB

where you can do beta testing, if you like). This version introduces a lot of changes, so I'll just name off what I found most notable. Check the readme for full details. My favorite change with this mod is the new force grip animation. Not only does it give your character a much better position, it also changes the animation of the person you use it on. I think that was the coolest animation change in the whole pack. The new roll animation is interesting as well. You character does a cartwheel (which fully justifies the increase in rolling speed). Now, it still has a few quirks. For instance, if you are using JA+ and you use your grapple hook, your player uses a "standing" animation while flying through the air. Kind of amusing, at least for a while. The cartwheel I mentioned above needs some fine tuning, because your hands and feet slide across the ground for a short distance. Oh, and if you use the fast stance, well...I hope you don't need that shoulder any more. XD So, as before, if you want to see the new changes to the animations, give it a shot. If you are looking for tweaks to the game or you liked the last two versions, give this a look! ~Dretzel

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

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?

Hirman's Darth Plagueis

hirmans_darth_plagueis_skin.zip | 1.17 MB

Plagueis, and it looks pretty good. There are little sources available which show his whole body, most showing only his face/upper half body. He is only wearing robes and there in no cloak included. Model: The model itself I cannot [i]really[/i] comment on, as there are no good sources as far as I am aware. I've seen a few images of him, some with a 'normal' sized head and some with a longer head, so I don't know whether the model is right or wrong. Textures: The robes themselves look dark jedi -like enough so I guess they'd be pretty accurate. The textures of the head are almost spot on; they look very alike the images I've seen. The red/blue are the same but his cape is red/blue Sounds: There are a few extra sounds. A death and one taunt, possibly more. They both sound [b]very[/b] odd, and I can't make out what he says. ~lol~ Bugs: He does not blink and his mouth does not move when he taunts Conclusion: It's a good reskin seeing as there are a very limited number of sources around. I feel he could have improved this by modelling a cloak over him, as it then wouldn't have had to have the accuracy. A few things possibly to fix and add, but overall it's good. So, if you are a fan of Plagueis or simply like the look of it from the screenshots, give it a download. -Dommie Kun Team Support: Yep Bot Support: Yep NPC Support: Nope Custom Sounds: Yep

Lightsource's Batman Skinpack

batman_pack.zip | 7.72 MB

Batman model pack which consists of 5 models/skins -Batman Begins Default Red Blue -Batman Returns -Batman (The Dark Knight) Each model is [b]very[/b] movie-accurate in textures and models. They are all modelled up to the slightest detail noticable from the movies and the textures are almost identical. There aren't many good movie-based models around and this is definately one that is good. The use of shaders really brings the models to life, and they are recommended if you wish to see the models at their best. There are new sounds, as you would hope for, and they are all of good quality. The mouth also moves when you taunt etc. :) I only had one dislike about this pack, the vampire Batman. It looked too feminin and too overdone with the shadering and it resulted in it looking a bit too shiny. So, not much more to say about it because there are no bad points about it. Overall, an [b]excellent[/b] model pack and extremely accurate. This is definately worth the download whether or not you are a Batman fan. I will be keeping this in my base folder as it is just....great! -Dommie Kun NPC support: Yep New Sounds: Yep Team Support: Yep Bot Support: Yep

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

characters become the \'bad\' ones, but it also makes some other minor changes, such as only being able to choose a red bladed saber from the saber menu. To be honest, I personally wasn\'t thrilled with this mod. I\'ve seen this sort of thing done before, multiple times. However, for those who still play the single player game, and want a slightly new experience, give it a download and have fun with it. I\'ll wait for another version with more features.

Gully of the Mist

gotem_.zip | 10.61 MB

notice about the map -- after you realize how [i]green[/i] it is! -- is that it's positively [i]huge[/i]. The drawback to this, though, is that it's immensely large but doesn't have the extra detail to back up the space. The result is a lot of random terrain with very little detail. It's almost as if the terrain is supposed to be the focal point of the map which I don't think makes a whole lot of sense. Besides the less than rolling hills and valleys this map sports various trees, most of which have been turned into structures. This design (and the map name) really made me think of Fern Gully the whole time I was watching it (I'll be pleased if none of you have seen that movie). It's like you're a little person in a giant forest. Unfortunately foliage is kept to a minimum which kind of ruins the 'forest' feel for me. From a gameplay perspective I can't see this map really bringing much to the table. It's possible to get stuck in some of the deeper crevasses, and even if you don't get stuck it'll take you god knows how long to find another person to fight. As an exercise in terrain it's alright. As a playable map... I'd say optimize it a bit for gameplay. There's something to be said for some more [i]subtle[/i] terrain.

Suffice to say, it looks like the entire gang is here, and I must say that this pack is definitely effective. Really, I could ramble on and on about this, but I daresay a good look at the screenshots will probably illustrate more than that, so I will simply poke the screenshots and run off in a nonchalant fashion _>[/quote]Looks like in this second version we have some new customization options, so if you liked it before make sure to pick up this update!

Crystal Hilts Pack

crystal_hilt_pack.zip | 988.08 KB

let you see inside to where the blade is created - at a crystal held in place by several spike clips. The single saber variations have a nicely rounded end instead of the standard flat end and are quite darkly colored. The staff hilts all are colored according to the blade they are best used for - see the screenshots to see what I mean. The only thing I noticed was at the very end there is a small slit gap in the mesh you can see particularly well in the purple blade below. The blade itself originates from the tip of each crystal - inside the hilt where the glass is which adds a nice touch, it\'s much better to see a blade come from inside than magically appearing hovering over the end of the staff. Good, clean staffs all round! -WadeV1589-

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. Give this a download. You will prolly not be disappointed. Bot Support: No NPC Support: No New Sounds: No Team Support: No

Cybernetic Maul

cybernetic_maul.zip | 2.56 MB

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

Kingdom Hearts: Riku

riku.zip | 696.3 KB

through the skirt when your dueling but that, as far as I know, can't be fixed easily so it's not much of a problem. Apart from that the body is brilliant. The face is very good but there's a few errors here and there. On the eyes there's 2 random blue spots that I assume are supposed to be the iris, unfortunately they are at the bottom of the eyes whereas the pupil is near the top. Also around the nose it looks as if the face is being almost sucked towards it, which looks really strange (I think this is a problem in weighting not the actual model). But if you're not looking up close it's not noticable. So excellent job. He has also included the Riku from the secret ending of 'Kingdom Hearts'. I have no clue if it's relevent to KH2 as i've not played it but anyway, its great. This model is just as fantastic as the other Riku and the only problem is, again, the nose. The hair also clips through the hood at points but honestly its not really a big deal. All this model needs is a few tweaks, some custom sounds (I found the fact there was none a little disappointing) and team skins. After that it will be perfect. However, right now it's one of the best and most accurate Riku models I've seen. It nearly looks exactly like the actual Riku in KH. Honestly TryForce, fantastic. Also included is Riku's Souleater (Sword). It's a pretty good model and skin and is a nice add on. Bot Support - No NPC Support - No New Sounds - No Team Skin - No ¬Elegos

Duel of the Fates

dotf_hd.zip | 339.91 MB

remember previously seeing a [i]very[/i] good demo of the epic duel between Qui-gon and Obi-wan and Darth Maul, but this one definitely blows that one out of the water. This film not only has a good subject (come on, everyone loves this duel!) but the filming is impeccable. It's also choreographed quite well, given the restrictions of the game. The author has set this up to use every feasible aspect of the engine to portray what he needed to, and I can't think of [i]anything[/i] that was left out, from Darth Maul tapping the forcefield with his saber to poor Qui-gon actually getting impaled correctly, which is not something I remember seeing in any previous recreations of this fight. This video takes about 5 minutes to run through, and is completely with accurate portrayal of the events, sound effects, and the appropriate music. Definitely not one to pass up, especially if you're a fan of this particular duel (as I am). Download the highest quality your internet connection will allow!

I got bored playing by myself after a while. Anyways, this is a very nifty plugin for those of you who want to try out makermod and don’t feel like learning all the commands. Okay. So I start up maker mod, and I wonder how to use the plugin. I should’ve read the readme. Anyways, read the readme, set up your controls, and start having fun. However, it may take a little bit of understanding for some people to use this. But all in all, this was an enjoyable mod to review, and is made to help out people new to makermod! In addition to aiding you in building stuff, this mod will also aid in the administrative part of makermod. So if you wanted to try out makermod but got confused, then download this! ~Zach Note, to use this, you must be on a server with makermod on it, or be running the mod itself, ~I noted in the review that I crashed while using Korriban models. This is not the case for everyone. Many people have had the models work just fine.

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.

Orthanc: Tower of Isengard

orthanc_shin925.zip | 2.4 MB

inaccurate. Orthanc was black, and if I remember correctly, the space at the top of the tower was circular. But that\'s not a real big thing. I liked how the author tried to make a good Tower of Orthanc, but it needs work. The upper platform itself should be bigger, The lower side areas could use a bit of work, the majority consisting of rearranging them so that they go around a circular tower. The skybox was inaccurate, as there are mountains, and the whole of Isengard that need to be in it. Were they? No, they weren\'t. That fact made me sad. But in all, this is a good attempt at making a Lord of the Rings map.

Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time Duel Pack

zelda_map_pack.zip | 22.75 MB

Sorry bout that, Data. :p )[/i] So, what do we have here? Awesomeness. On all four counts - technical, aesthetic, gameplay, and accuracy. Not meaning to sound like a drooling fanboy, but I was literally stunned at how much of the originals I could recognise in here. I even had to set up my N64 and do a comparison, just to be sure my mind wasn't playing tricks on me. Four maps are included here - Temple of Time, Zelda's Garden, Chamber of Sages, and The Sacred Realm. For each of them, I had no issues whatsoever. Almost no glitches, perfect lag-free gameplay, and a noticable lack of retinal injury. All four maps stand out enough to look more like Zelda than Jedi Academy, but they don't stand out so much as to contrast with the game. I'll start with Temple of Time. Firstly, the texturing job looks very professional, and is incredibly accurate to the game, down to the very last pixel (although some artistic liberties have been taken for things the game doesn't actually show ;) ). The Master Sword's room at the back is, literally, the perfect representation. Even the little stones have been added in, looking just like they should, right down to the texture and shader used. Zelda's Garden is just as it was in the game. This was where I encountered a glitch or two - in the side rooms, they pass off into the void. This doesn't happen in the throne room though, which I'm sure any roleplayers or movie makers will be glad to hear, if they ever intend on a Zelda RP or movie. The water shader is surprisingly pretty, and has a good degree of cartoonyness to it (I make words up a lot - so sue me :) ), although it's not exactly like the OoT shader. That can be attributed to the engine, though. The Sacred Realm, while not seen in it's exact form, is as close to any rendition I've ever seen. I had a bit of a gripe, namely the Triforce - it clashes with the flare used. Personally I would have added a dynamic glow instead, but at least this way, anyone can see the glow. Other than that, not much else to comment on - it's a fairly simple map. Finally, the Chamber of Sages. All I can say, is "neat". Take a look, and see for yourselves. This room did have more glitches, though - the water shaders are visible through each other, and if you use noclip, you can see up through the central column and clearly see where the medallions and Triforce are caulked. Not really anything that can be done about that, though, aside from putting a stone column in the center of the water - and that is not how it was in OoT. Frankly, these maps are beyond constructive criticism. It's clearly visible that they've been tested, retested, tested, retested, and tested some more until the authors were happy that they'd perfected them. I can pin glitches and slight flaws on, but I severely doubt those were fixable due to Q3's limitations. It makes me a happy panda to see that authors have gone over their work repeatedly, making sure everything is fixed, and pushing the quality of their work to the limits, and for that, Jeffrey and Gaara deserve some kudos - and that's before observing the quality of their work. I can't wait to see how the Hyrule Castle FFA map turns out, and no doubt there'll be more to come. Just keep your hands off the Fire Temple and Water Temple - those are [i]my[/i] bishies! ;) This pack is an absolute must for any Ocarina of Time fan, any Zelda fan in general, and a definite item of interest for anyone who likes quality duel maps. ~ Kouen [b]Bot Support:[/b] [b]Custom Textures:[/b] [b]Custom Models:[/b] [b]Custom Music:[/b] [b]Gametypes:[/b] Duel Powerduel [b]Other Files of Interest:[/b] [file=63486]Link (4.0)[/file]

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~

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

So, if you've got the map, grab the patch. ~ Kouen PS: Yes, I know I put it in Maps>Free For All. It's here mainly for convenience, since it should show right below the map itself in the directory.

Episode 3 Anakin

ep3anakinfinal.zip | 11.41 MB

and I've seen worse ones. Yes, I'm talking about the model. This is a skin, so I'm just commenting on the model choice. It's not bad. The face looks a little bit better than the average face I've seen on most Anakin models. The rest of the texturing, however, is average. Looking at it I can't really see anything that makes it stand out from most of the other Anakin models out there. The hair is just as weird as the rest, the face is just as blurry (unfortunately that's what you get when you photosource) and the clothes are just the same color. By this point in the game we're just getting minor tweaks of the dozens of Anakin skins out there already. This one's definitely not bad, but unfortunately most of them look to be just about the same to me. Maybe I've just seen too many of them... However I suppose that's saying something good. I've seen bad Anakin skins and models, and this isn't one of them. Just one thing about the original model. It deforms fairly well all around... except one vertex. If you look at the right shoulder area in ModView during the animations you'll see it. Unnoticible for the most part, though. Enjoy![/quote] I'm no expert on skins, and the previous review summed up the skin pretty well, so I'll just comment on the alterations in this version. The face fits the model's skinmap better now than it did in the previous versions, and the facial expression also seems to have been changed. This is good since in the previous version, he looked quite absent-minded. As fitting as that may be for Hayden Christiansen, I'm sure Anakin Skywalker isn't so scatter-brained. ;) The torso has been reskinned from scratch for this version, as have the arms and hair. The whole outfit is accurate to the movie, and the reskinning work on the torso and arms is an improvement over v2. The hair looks rather flat in ModView, but judging from the in-game screenshots provided, as soon as you get the skin into JKA you won't notice. These faults are all minor, so they don't detract from the overall quality of the skin. You wouldn't even notice them unless you were specifically looking for them - I had to scrutinise pretty closely to see anything at all. The good points are far more in number than the bad points, but if I commented on them, I'd just be repeating what the previous review said. A few nice extras have also been provided with this version. Movie Battles II support has been included, as well as HapSlash's Anakin hilt. Maestro Obi also threw in a custom blade mod he's made. This is a high quality skin, and a worthy addition to the average SW nerd's collection. Unless you're a perfectionist, or just don't like Anakin, I don't see any reason not to give this one a download. ~ Kouen [b]NPC Support:[/b] Yes [b]Bot Support:[/b] Yes [b]Team Support:[/b] Yes [b]New Sounds:[/b] Yes [b]Other Extras:[/b] MovieBattles II Support Singleplayer Customization Saber Blades Mod Lightsaber Hilt [b]NPC Spawning Codes:[/b] /npc spawn anakin /npc spawn anakinsith

Advent Children Buster Sword Replacement Mod

advent_children_buster_sword.zip | 947.04 KB

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

Alaora

alaora_v2.zip | 2.38 MB

spunky brown leather outfit and mysterious dots under her right eye, she was what Inyri called in [file=\"50168\"]her original review[/file] \"a somewhat snotty Jedi padawan.\" I\'m not sure if I would judge like that, but who knows? Inyri, however, stated that she would be happier if the skin was selectable as a custom Jedi Female Twi\'lek. Darth Thistle comes to the rescue by not changing the skin itself in any way except that the color of her skin can be changed, but the clothes have been preserved; \"Alaora\" is now perfectly selectable in the custom Jedi menu. This is, however, at the cost of Bot, NPC, and Team Support. This is a fine, but minute update, and I guess the only advice that I can give is to provide a choice of PK3s to use it in any circumstance. --Ra-Kom

Coruscant Heights 2

coruscant_heights2.zip | 20.09 MB

If you've ever played JK2 Nar Shaddaa Streets. (My favourite level of the game) You'll instantly recognise the style used in this map. It actually looks like the author has directly used some of Raven's original map for jk2 to create this one, which whilst not that challenging, still looks good ;) And of course now it's Coruscant-texture themed, and not Nar Shaddaa. Of course, it does have a few small flaws, as well as a few not-so-small ones. Most obviously, especially from some of the screenshots, is the missing floor texture. Now, if this has been on a crate or something, I'd probably have overlooked it. However, when the entire floor of one half of the map is an ugly grey and white texture, you tend to notice it ;) Furthermore, the framerate can get a bit choppy sometimes, although it isn't in general bad. However, I can tell without looking at the included .map file that the author has failed to caulk many of his hidden surfaces, which immediately lets me know the framerate could have been so much better! :( I'm actually more amazed at the scope of this level, rather than the design. You'll need a Force 3 jump to get around most places, although there are a few trams and lifts which move you around as well. However, unless you're a full-force jump user, you won't be able to get around very easily. Oh yes, the doors. Very annoying. The author has forgotten to put a 'wait' key on his door triggers, and consequently when you press 'use', the door opens and closes too rapidly for you to get through. Overall though, the gameplay of this map is great - plenty of height variation and enough room for well over 32 players. I especially liked the fog-esque effect around the building bases. That just looks so good compared to a black drop-off that I will tip my hat to the author. Very nice. :D In conclusion, this map is very inspiring, although technically and visually there are some rather unpleasant flaws which absolutely MUST be fixed because as they are they're ruining the map. Oh yes, and there is no bot support, so I'm afraid the author gets a big black cross put by his name ;) Next time get them in there for Pete’s sake![/quote] So, here's the second version of the map, which, looking at the readme, has fixed a fair few bugs and other problems. Most importantly, is the texture problem which proved to be a fatal flaw in the original. As you'd expect, that issue has been fixed for this new version, so we can all get on and be happy. The map is essentially the same as the first version, there are no major design changes, although one of the cool cable cars has been removed, and there's a few new additions, including sounds for the doors and wait values. There were a couple of new errors I discovered this time around, and a few new things to comment on which I didn't notice originally. Firstly, there are now some caulked surfaces which that player can actually see, so what you get is basically an invisible wall in a few places (See screenshot 6). Secondly, is the texture usage. Now, I know that the author has prevented his textures from looking repetitive by breaking them up using other textures, but I think going a step further could give another visual boost to the map. Looking sideward, the textures are fine, but looking up and down, they repeat. Furthermore, when textures which are the same sit next to each other, and some of the windows have glows, it looks weird when the set of windows directly next to them has exactly the same set of glows. The new support sections and walkways are well created, but you need to create the flares properly, because, at the moment, they're 2D. Okay, all flares are 2D, but they're supposed to look 3D. This is done by making a light and giving it the following keys and values: [quote] key: _flareshader value: textures/flares/nameofflareshader[/quote] Furthermore, when looking into the crevices between some buildings, you can see half-cut window textures which really don’t fit. (Screenshot 2)There's also a small issue on that broken pane of glass in the building near the top of the level, where the author has not caulked the gaps where 2 pieces of glass meet, so it looks a little weird. Also, were those cars there before? I mean at the top of the level. They just don't look as good there as they do at the bottom. There are also a few uncaulked surfaces on the buildings, but I'm still loving that fog ;) Conclusion? It's a very nice map, which seems to capture the physique and scope of a cityscape very well. Gameplay-wise, it's also on a very level, with plenty of height variation and room to breathe. In order make this a brilliant map though, you'll need to really push your design ambition - don't just have square buildings, give them more detail, create some focal points and really bring it to life. Its a great design, but it can get quite monotonous after staring at it for a while. Make a focal point, and bring some more lighting contrasts into play to spice areas up a bit - some shadowed allies e.t.c. Overall though, a definite improvement over the first. Although, you're still getting slapped wrists for not including bot support. Honestly, it is such a good extra to have, and isn't particularly hard to implement! Oh yea, and is the inclusion of that custom skybox really a necessary addition - you can only see the top of it in game and there's plenty of JK3 skyboxes which would have worked just as well, if not better.

20th Century Fox

:) Okay, so the map is reasonably accurate to the actual logo, however there's a few thing's I'd like to see set straight. Firstly, the lights need to be swinging, as they do in the logo opening - and incidentally you need an actual [b]source[/b] for the lights too - i can see the mechanism for them but there's no actual 'bulb' section in them. Secondly.... you need a specular shader! The 20th century fox emblem is GOLD... not yellow ;) Make it shine! I realise the intro sound in the actual movie is too short for a map, but it would've been nice to hear it somewhere in the map.. but never mind. We actually get the main theme from star wars, which, fits reasonably well. The author has also tried to implement a custom water shader... which doesn't quite work well, but it's better than the default water shaders :D Oh, and there's some small misalignment problems on the lettering, but you won't notice it :) New Textures: Yes New Sounds: No Bot Support: Yes ~Szico VII~

The entire outfit, has been redone to look like armor, and done pretty well at that. The screenshots alone do not do this skin justice. The immense amount of detail is amazing, and I just dig the rusty looking feeling added to certain areas. Best of all, this comes with TEAM skins, yes..so you may enjoy in all types of games.

() Academy V3

gjoacademyv3.zip | 9.19 MB

this rate he will be brilliant before long ;) As I said, this is his latest and best map so far, it’s a medium sized academy map, which seems to be primarily for the GJO clan, although I only ever noticed ONE reference to anything to do with GJO. For the most part, the map just looked like a general academy map, which you really wouldn’t think was associated with any particular clan. Really this is a map any clan could enjoy. The main hall area is really cool I think, with a nice, but unusual mixture of different textures. The rest of the map is also textured quite nicely :) The architecture is nice, and also quite simple. Probably my favourite room was what seemed to be the council room, I cant think what it reminded me of, but it was brilliant! Oh and don’t forget the banana bar too! (Yes that is a bannana you see in the screenshot ;) ) I think its a good thing to have simple architecture in a clan, or academy map, where there is gonna be a lot of duelling, or FFA’ing n’ stuff, because its easy on the eye - you don’t have to concentrate too much on your surroundings whilst duelling. So you can concentrate more on your opponent. It also keeps the frame rate decent, which is a must especially when you’re duelling! As with all clan maps there are secrets to be discovered here, and they’re pretty cool too, not just your average “secret room” these are interesting secrets ;) As with all maps, there’s always something that can be improved upon. Here I noticed that there was quite a bit of z-fighting in some areas, there were also one or two places where the lighting could be improved, like in the round duel room, with the pool in the middle. Perhaps if there were some torches, or lamps on the 4 pillars, to give some more natural lighting. Also, it could really do with bot support. That’s something all authors should try and put in their maps. There’s an excellent tutorial here: http://jediknight2.filefront.com/info/BotWaypointTutorial I know it says JK2, but it works fine for JKA too. Perhaps most of all though, it could really do with some weapons and ammo for FFA’ing! :( Not a bad map at all here, I’m sure its something you might like to take a look at if your in a clan ;) Oh, and last of all, the music on the map is sweeeeet! You gotta love that matrix music ;) Bot Support: No New Textures: Yes New Sounds: No New Music: Yes Game Types: FFA, TFFA ~Nozyspy~

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

won\'t mind putting on your server. You won\'t find clan tags or pictures plastered all over the map. In fact, I was pleasantly surprised by this map. While I\'m not fond of all of the lighting used in this map, there are some areas that are just pretty to look at. Fortunately, it\'s also a fun map to play. There are some areas where the water rushing by looks as though it will sweep you under and over a waterfall - and that\'s exactly what happens. There\'s a bedroom in this map, but I like it. Generally I\'m not a fan of clan maps that include bedrooms because they\'re usually plain and useless. Not in this case. The bedroom is quite lovely, with a bath that I would LOVE to have in my own room. There are plenty of places to duel and FFA. Weapons are well-placed, so is the ammo. It\'s too bad no new music was added, but that\'s not a huge complaint for me. I did find some minor z-fighting in a few places, but it\'s not enough to be an issue. My FPS was decent. Overall, this is a good clan map that I wouldn\'t mind placing on my own server if I still played JA. :P Bot Support: No New Textures: Yes New Music: No Game Types: FFA, TFFA ~AmosMagee

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

all of the sabers that you now have countless ways to change your saber fighting style. And what mostly was changed had to do with the damage and speed and even the specials/katas that you perform.

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.

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~

Bloody Desann

bloody_desann.zip | 1.63 MB

just bested. While I have to say that this is an interesting idea for a skin the execution needs more work. I think the blood needs to look more like it has been spattered on Desann's clothes and armour, with some blotches here and there, at the moment I am afraid it appears more as if the blood has been painted on. I would also recommend going with a darker red for the blood, that is if Rancor's have red blood? They might have green, to be honest I don’t really know! Of course one should point out that if Desann used his lightsaber there probably wouldn’t be any blood anyway, as the lightsaber would instantly cauterise any wound it made, hence why Obi Wan wasn’t sprayed with Darth Maul's blood when he chopped him in half, that and George Lucas probably wasn’t aiming for an 18+/NC-17 certificate! Anyways, on the up side this skin does have team skins, which is always a plus. For next time I would recommend working on making the blood darker and more splotchy and his clothes more mottled with the stains for a more realistic effect (more similar to how you did it on the chest armour of the blue team skin), I also think it would be cool to write a bit of a story in, or in addition to your readme explaining why Desann was fighting against Rancor's, perhaps he went on an expedition to Felucia or was dropped into a Rancor pit by one of Jabba's relatives? Anyways, keep up the skinning man, I hope to see more from you in the future! :) [b]New Sounds:[/b] Yes [b]Bot Support:[/b] No [b]Team Support:[/b] Yes ~Nozyspy~

ForceMod III Classic Edition - Version 1.3A Basic

fm3ce13a.zip | 178.42 MB

updates since the last version: [quote]Version 1.3A Changes (from Version 1.3) - Corrected Ki-Adi-Mundo form style ability by only providing wall grip ability (with no wall run and wall flip. - Corrected some name form spellings in the Melee 1 Chart located in the Saber Menu section. - Restricted Hirmans models to their proper class selections for Sith & Jedi. Version 1.3 Changes (from Version 1.2) - Expanded the Dual Sabers selections section. You can now choose up to 12 saber hilts for either saber1 or saber2. - Added Saber powers 1-3 section in Saber menu for saber classes that do not specialize in level 4 saber (Warden, Sentinel, Cardinal, Crypt Guardian) - Anakin style was added as an additional Djem So form. - Removed the forced spectate mode between class changes. - The "1" key was reactivated for use with key binds. - For balancing purposes several melee modifications were made for various saber forms and classes (please consult in-game Melee Charts) - Added Hirman's Darth Bane, Darth Plagueis, Asajj Ventress, Ahsoka Tano, Cad Bane, and AT-RT Driver skins - Added Zkyo's Ingame Server Join Menu. - Some saber animation place-holders were changed back from OJP version to FM3 defaults due to ongoing modifications and improvements. - To make room for the new Menu modifications the Fourth Person along with Zoom-In and Zoom-out were removed from the Xbinds section.[/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. :P 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~

Bastila's Lightsaber Hilt

meditant.zip | 1.46 MB

the author has named Meditant, in reference to Bastila's famous Battle Meditation. The hilt model is accurate to the one from Knights of the Old Republic, and its good to see that people are still making KotOR themed mods for JKA even after all this time. In fact, its good to see that both JKA and KotOR both still have active modding communities. I hope that will continue for years to come! The only think I can think of as far as improvements go would be to make the buttons on the hilt red, since it looks a little odd to me without them. Red buttons would break up the otherwise solid silver hilt. But, that said, I cant remember whether Bastila's hilt actually did have any red buttons, so maybe thats just personal preference on my part. Anyway, good work here SimonKTemplar, I hope you will make some more KotOR themed mods for us in the future! :) [b]New Model:[/b] Yes [b]New Sounds:[/b] No [b]New Effects:[/b] No ~Nozyspy~

Revan's Lightsaber Hilt

revanchist.zip | 793.19 KB

a real life model of the weapon. Honestly, it's a relief to see such a humble hilt, as I do grow tired of the overly ornate temples that people hold in their hands these days. So, comparing the shot to the model, and the model looks like it's just about perfect down to the last detail, as does the skinjob. 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. Take it or leave it, but I could save your life one day..." ...and save you, it could. Because it burns things. - Averus Retruthan

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

Battle on Theed (FFA)

theed1a_ffa.zip | 40.85 MB

instilled fear into us all... ...This map is [b]HUGE![/b] O_o; Seriously, getting lost almost seemed like a mandatory part of playing this map. There's so much to drink in. When you think you're done seeing the whole map, you see yet another thing you missed! However, there was virtually NOTHING I found that I wasn't impressed by. So, Theed. The city that lasted a single Episode, and yet, it's remarkable beauty impacted us for years on end. It's a shame it played little to no part in the rest of the prequels. So, what...is...in...the...map? Quite a lot of exterior, really. There's not much interior to be found, but there is enough. This map was designed with upcoming siege objectives in mind(Yes, that includes MB2,) though it is also to be featured in the JKA Siege Mappack as well when it graces our altars. There are 3 major exterior regions, each one crowned with teal marble domes and fuchsia marble roofs on the majority of the buildings. The streets are paved with bricks and almost everywhere you turn, there's a stairway leading somewhere deeper into the map. The streets are adorned with neatly trimmed bushes,[b]*snicker[/b] strategically planted trees, and traces of ivy cling to the various structures in the area. Yep, the author painted one hell of a picture. Better yet, there's barely anything wrong with this map. The texture choices were nothing short of exquisite, and the custom skybox fit so well I actually thought there was more to the map than met the eye. Architecturally speaking, this is probably one of the most complex maps I've seen in a while. It felt like there was over 100 ways to reach another part of the map, and this maps predominant use of arches looks like it took quite some time to get all just right. The lighting seemed near-perfect. There was one area I noticed seemed a bit unsourced in natural lighting, but other than that there was hardly a place that seemed out of place in that department. Now, I did say there's BARELY anything wrong, so let's see what plagues it: [b]1.)Doors:[/b] Alright, so I must admit it's very difficult to put in sci-fi doors into an environment that has a late renaissance feel to it. However, while most of the smaller doors fit in perfectly, some of the larger doors appeared to clash with their environments. Basically picturing a large black industrial-looking door in the midst of all the grace, it just dudn't fit. [b]2.)Ambient Atmosphere:[/b] This was probably the most disappointing department to me, as there was hardly ANY ambient background in this map at all, and I honestly think it really could have benefited from some. Once the music is turned off in your game, all you hear is almost dead silence. The only ambient noise comes from the various fountains sprinkled about the map, and you have to get pretty close to them to hear anything. The exteriors really could have used maybe some birds singing in the background, maybe a few church bells tolling every so often. The stream direly needed some noise, as it appeared it was flowing too quickly to be that quiet. The interiors could have used some noise emitting from some of the computer consoles, and that large column that looked like a reactor wouldn't have hurt to have had some humming coming from it. As this currently stands, this is quite a product here. I would definitely suggest the masses ingest this file, even if just to take a quick look at it. One can only wonder what malevolence is being adding to it, to make this map a true force among forces. I shall remain on the lookout for future versions of this map =_= as I am most curious as to what you've in store for us, Lord J3rk.

spot-on. The back of the so-called-gold skin (Which is more accurately a black skin with some gold on it) isn't quite right, and it's dragonshield is still one sided.The girls are missing their skirts, and the helmet shapes do not match the skins properly either, but those are model issues, and not very visible ones at that. The textures look believable enough, and I can't point out any major flaws with them, except for the one sided dragonshield issue. Sounds have been included, but they do not work. All I hear when I use them is 'Take that!' in the male voice for all but the pink skin, which uses the female version of the same taunt. Honestly, I can't think of more to say about this skin pack.

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]

Robocop

have said it better myself, really. Excuse me, I have to go. Somewhere, there is a crime happening. And that crime is, unfortunately, that this is a skin, whilst the awesomeness of Robocop deserves a model. That shouldn't detract much though. As far as a skin can go, this is actually really good. I don't know if anyone has tried doing Robocop off of the Merc model before, and if they haven't I'm surprised. This skin comes with new taunts and hurt sounds, and the quality is quite good. Only things I could recommend is as I said before, making a model of it is best or if you can't do that atleast make the skin more metallic like, it's blueness makes it seem like a colorful jumpsuit or something.

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.

sabers and one scepter of Ragnos. The sabers have longer blades, and I assume they are fine-tuned in other ways as well, but what really interested me was the scepter. It has a half-mile long saber blade and the neato energy effects that Tavion shot out of it. There is a problem with them, though...the effect comes out at an angle, so don't expect it to follow your saber. Looks rather goofy. But anyways, if you like a hilariously overpowered saber or you want to wield a scepter that's literally as powerful as it was when possessed Tavion used it, this is your file. ~Dretzel

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. Of course, someone's going to find a bunch of faults and post them in the comments, I just know it. If you like Vergil or are a collector of nice-looking skins, check this one out!

character, since the game doesn't reveal it, only the book does). Well, HOUOU decided the hilt needed some editing so here it is, a revised second version. What has changed since last time, you may ask. Well first of all the whole shape of the model was slightly edited to resemble the original hilt from TFU a bit more, it really does look accurate to me, judging by what I could find on the internet, since when I was playing TFU I didn't really pay attention to how the hilt looked, that is. The polygon management is also proper, the hilt maintains enough detail for this old enough game without having OVER NINE THOUSAND verts... (Trust me, I saw many models that were a big waste in this deparment). Texture was touched up a bit aswell since last time. The only thing I really miss is a well toned gloss shader with enviroment map, but that's just me. Want a good Starkiller hilt?

TFU Backhand Saber Animations

care! :) Sylver has swapped around a good deal of animation strings to match the backhanded lightsaber stance that Galak uses from TFU. He has also done this with single-player and MP bots in mind, and has also changed the animations for every other NPC that comes with the game. Thats a fair amount of work to his credit, but it didn't come out quite as polished as you might like. There are several clipping issues with the models, and don't expect to watch the SP cut scenes with any sort of sobriety (hey, I thought it looked funny okay?) Overall, a decent attempt at the backhand stance. Not the best I have seen so far, but good if you like seeing all the NPC's use that stance. -Sared Overall rating: three out of ten biscuits.

[b]First off, lets have a look at the Jedi Adventure Robe.[/b] This skin has a black and grey colour scheme, with most of the robes being a light grey, with areas like the belt and other highlights being black. Whilst this doesn’t look quite as ‘Sithy’ as you would expect from such a colour scheme, it doesn’t look very Jedi-like either. More like a grey Jedi’s kind of robes I would say. This skin definitely needs quite a bit more work; the grey areas are completely flat grey which doesn’t look right at all. I would definitely recommend adding some texture to these areas to make it look more like cloth and also work on making the black highlights such as the belt a bit neater, as they have somewhat jaggedy edges. [b]Next up, the Light Training Gear.[/b] This skin is completely the opposite of the other skin as far as clothing is concerned, in keeping with the ‘light’ and ‘training’ themes of the costume. Although I am not entirely sure what the skin coloured parts of the skin are meant to be, I believe it is actually skin. It’s a little difficult to tell, since there are no ‘muscle marks’ to indicate that it is bare skin, but at the same time it doesn’t really look like clothing either. Definitely something to work on there for next time – add some muscles! There is a problem here of course because the model normally has clothes on, and it is very difficult to skin over clothes and make it actually look like skin because the shape of the clothing is still there. [b]Conclusion[/b] All in all a decent skin pack here, although I definitely think it needs some more work on the skinning side of things. Also, this doesn’t have any team skins, and I think that is also something that could be worked on for next time too. Both these skins have some custom taunts however, which does add nicely to the overall package. Keep up the good work Spior, I look forward to seeing your skills continue to improve! :) [b]Jedi Adventure Robe[/b] [b]New Sounds:[/b] Yes [b]Bot Support:[/b] No [b]Team Support:[/b] No [b]Light Training Gear[/b] [b]New Sounds:[/b] Yes [b]Bot Support:[/b] No [b]Team Support:[/b] No ~Nozyspy~

Captain Rex

rex_skin.zip | 10.51 MB

will recognize... It's Captain Rex from The Clone Wars film! Yes, yes. It's Anakin Skywalker's personal clone. The author decided to re-skin Mars Marshall's ARC trooper, and he did a pretty good job if I must say so myself. If we take a look at Rex overall, you'll notice that it's almost spot on the money with resemblance. I was watching The Clone Wars the other day, and If my memory serves me correct, there is very little about this re-skin that is different. Although, I do see some textures that are off in some places, but that's bound to happen with re-skins. You can't make some 100% perfect, am I right? We're human, and we have many, many flaws! Anyways, I think the author did a great job with the textures. I'd also like to mention that the author decided to add shaders to Rex as well. They made this skin [i]so[/i] much better, I must admit. It gave it so much more flavor. As far as the support features go, there is one that requires another skin pack for it to work correctly. You'll need to download the [url="http://jediknight3.filefront.com/file/;83461"]Soldier Customization V2 Pack[/url] in order for this skin to have Soldier Customization V2 support. Overall, this is a great re-skin, and a great representation of Captain Rex from The Clone Wars! There isn't much you can really do to improve this skin, except touching up the textures a bit. Other than that, you did a great job on this skin Pra Viilon! If you loved the Clone Wars film or just like clones overall, then you should definitely download this skin!

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~

Realistic Lightsaber Blades, Sounds and Force Lightning

real_effects.rar | 309.89 KB

look more movie like. This is one such mod, however, as well as improving the look of the saber blades to something more akin to the more ‘pointy’ blades in Episode 3, it also adds some new sound effects to the lightsaber as well as some improved force lightning effects. I especially liked the new saber sounds, they sound much stronger and more visceral and I think they are an improvement over the base JKA sounds. As for the force lightning effects, the lightning bolts themselves have been made bigger and thicker, as you can see in the screenshot below. I wouldn’t particularly say they look better than the original lightning effects, but they are certainly not worse either. I would say, rather, that they are best used as an alternative version if you want a change from the base JKA force lightning effects. Personally I liked them, and I think I will keep this file in my base folder for a while, to have a change from the same old base JKA effects! All in all then a cool little mod here, if you want a change from the base JKA lightning effects, and the saber blade effects and sounds, then you will enjoy this mod. Give it a download if you like the look of it! :) ~Nozyspy~

Star Killer

star_killer_final2.zip | 4.97 MB

version. ;) Not to worry though, because this is a good skin and I am glad to see it back. Firstly, it is worth noting that there have only been some slight changes since last time around, as the author himself admits in his readme, he only slightly changed the default skins and thus the team skins are still the same as the last version. From what I can tell, the gloves and forearms have different textures as does the armour around his neck. The team skins are still the same, so that means a scary, pale, orange-eyed Sith for the red team skin and a clean robed Jedi for the blue team skin, both of which look great as I have said before. The author has also included Starkiller’s saber hilt (which uses the back handed stance ingame) with this file, which nicely rounds this file off. As I am sure I have said before, I would really have liked some custom sounds for the taunts and such, perhaps from the game itself, but the default sounds used for this skin do fit well so that’s not too much of a worry. All in all there have only been a few slight changes made, but they are an improvement I think. A good mod here for those who liked Starkiller and The Force Unleashed, if you guys like the look of it, then give it a download! :) [b]New Sounds:[/b] No [b]Bot Support:[/b] No [b]Team Support:[/b] Yes ~Nozyspy~

Star Wars Stances Animated For JA+

star_wars_stances_animated_for_ja.zip | 8.46 MB

Fernandez Garcia has brought to us today, his Star Wars Stance pack. The first stance change you will notice is simply the standing position, you stand a lot straighter, kind of military style actually... I was expecting him to salute at any moment! personally I would prefer the standard stance, but this would be good if you were perhaps doing some kind of military rpg with some friends. The next one that I noticed was jumping, standing on the spot and jumping in the air has now been giving the 'rolling' jump animation that you would usually get when jumping forward, and now when jumping forward the animation seems to go faster than usual. He has also included two-hand lightning whilst weilding weapons, which I found to be a nice inclusion. The force push and pull also have been slightly edited, and new sounds added. However, whilst there is a few nice things in this pack, there is also an abundance of bugs in regards to the weapon stances, for example, with single saber blue style you dont even swing the saber at the enemies, it just jolts around your body as if your character is frozen, and when standing still it looks like your character has been frozen still whilst running. To be honest, most of the saber stances seem to be bugged and need work done on them, the only real thing I liked with them would be the spinning upper-cut in single red and yellow, which to be honest does look quite good. Most of the gun animations are the same, I noticed that the blaster pistol has been changed so your holding it more like a rifle now. As I said there are a few nice saber stances, for example the upper-cut attack, dual sabers standing animation, but work is definately needed on most of it. If your able to fix these bugs then I think I would be a nice pack indeed. I think the key is testing, make sure you do plenty of testing, and get some friends to check it to, that way all bugs can be fixed BEFORE the release. I'm unsure if this is your first attempt at stances, but if it is, then nice work for a first go, and I hope you can put together a v2.[/quote] Most of the bugs seem like they've been fixed, although I will name two things that I found. When I used melee mode in JA+, after punching when returning to a ready position, your torso spins around. Also, the new roll seems to move a little bit too fast. Maybe adjust that for a future release if you plan on one. Although I do admit, I loved the increased distance. Very amusing to roll down steps now. Want something new in your game? Here's a way to get it! ~Dretzel

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~

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

how annoyed I am that it isn’t, I better get on with the review! :P As I said last time I feel the choice of HapSlash’s Anakin Skywalker model to reskin was a good idea. The armour, which has been adjusted slightly from last time fits well on the model. The parts of the armour that have been changed are the breast and back plates, which have been trimmed down a bit, and now look a better shape in my opinion. The strapping around the arms has also been adjusted, as has the belt. Also the colour of the robes, and the texture on them seems to have been changed subtly as well. We also have team skins, though these don’t seem to have been changed since last time, it appears that the main changes were made to the default skin. Now, things that could be improved upon. Again, as I said last time, I do feel that there should have been some red and blue versions of the default skin, because people may not recognise the blue and red team skins as representing Starkiller. That said however, the team skins are distinctive and I think they look cool! Lastly, for next time I think it would be cool to try and include some bit support in there. Overall though another good skin here from Raziel, I look forward to seeing more from you mate! :) [b]New Sounds:[/b] No [b]Bot Support:[/b]No [b]Team Support:[/b] Yes ~Nozyspy~

Yalara Roleplay

yalara.zip | 29.86 MB

heard any details on it (I haven't concerned myself with it; I'm too busy playing Mandalorian) so I resorted to Wookieepedia! It had this gold mine of information to share with me. >_> [quote]Yalara was a primitive planet. Jedi Master Broden Kel Verdox installed a cloaking device which kept the entire planet hidden. This was to protect the primitive civilization. Darth Vader, however, sent Noghri there, who wiped out the indigenous population. The Imperial Remnant, under the command of the Disciples of Ragnos, attempted to lay hands on the cloaking device. In order to avert this, Jedi Knight Jaden Korr destroyed the whole device. [/quote] WOW, THANKS FOR ALL THE INFORMATION. Uninformative jerks. =_= Anyway, on to the map. It is the author's first (Which impresses me) and last (Which saddens me) map. Fortunately the author has provided the source code for the map so if anyone else takes up the task of improving this work of art they have what they need. I'm also surprised at the quality of the map due to the relatively short time that it was created in. You start off in the spaceport, which is a wonderful area with two wonderful ships you can enter and run around in. They even have working laser cannons! My only qualm so far is the lack of spawning points. There is only one spawn point, so I can foresee many-a-spawn-kills on populated servers. Also in the starport you'll find a number of smaller ships and starfighters, some wonderful benches, vendor stalls, travel information, data terminals, and more. It is a very well-done depiction of a starport and it really gets you in the RP mood. Another great addition is the sound of a ship flying overhead or taking off every few seconds. Continue through the big imposing door that is so familiar in many maps and you enter an area that seems very familiar if you've ever been in an airport. It is the 'waiting area with travel information and departure times and computers for employees and lots of benches' room. Very well done, again. Continue through the next door and you're greeted with an amazing scene (Very realistic and, once again, gets you in the mood for RP). If another. You come out to a winding ramp down to a bridge that extends over a river to a town. On your left is a massive waterfall and a cliff, and on your right is another cliff. When we enter the town we come across a marketplace-type district with more vendor stalls, clothing hanging up, and TVs on display (A lovely touch is a sparking TV that has fallen off the table and broken) Continue through the streets and you are travelling through more vendor stalls, plants, pop machines, benches, and signs. The architecture and setting of this town very much reminds me of Antioch (Both the real Medieval setting and the JKA map based off of it.) In the town you'll come across a military base with all your essentials such as a prison, command room, armory, etc, a hotel, a cantina. Everything you'd expect and it is all very well done. My only problem is the lighting; rooms are very bright without any lighting source and it slightly dampens the immersion effect of the map. If you put in some lighting fixtures and added some shadows and whatnot, the rooms would be perfect. Also included is an old abandoned warehouse-type building that leads down to a dark room with sparse lighting, a bunch of crates, some wooden chairs, lots of weapons, and an entrance to the sewer. It's a perfectly done rebel/terrorist/criminal building. There's also a tram station, which is VERY well done and VERY well lit. It is quite possibly my favorite area of the map (My second favorite would be the criminal-warehouse. There are several areas where you can enter the sewers and crawl around and even get to this outdoor scenic-ruins area. The textures here are rather repetitive and I feel like some swaying grass and more trees should be added to it. There's lots of things to explore, such as some caves and a temple and whatnot. Overall this map is extremely successful at what it set out to accomplish - Be an immersive, complete map for RPers, and I can see that I'm going to love roleplaying on this map for a very long time. Another plus of it is that although it's such a complete, dense, and great map, it's not too big; it doesn't take forever to load like some maps (Cough Atlantica Cough) and thus will be able to be played on by many RPers. I didn't hear any music while I ran around the map but I checked in the PK3 file and there IS a music file, so the author tried to add some. The main problems of the map are the repetitive textures in some areas (Mainly the outdoors) and the poor lighting in some areas (Mainly indoors, such as in the hotel. Some areas however had spectacular lighting such as the Tram and the warehouse.) I STRONGLY suggest somebody to take up the task of improving this already spectacular map by improving the textures, lighting, and adding some music. I'd love to see a version two of this. ~Laam'inui

mod working on the Red stance, it acutely is put on to the Staff instead. And even then both blades have to be going for it to even work. Another thing i noticed is the hand isn't closing all the way around the staff, so he's just kinda holding it open handed. The only other things i noticed was the pk3 eather has to be placed in the Base folder, or for me it had to go in to the JA+ folder. Other then the glitch with the hand and the mod working on the staff this mod is still a nice addition to your game play. ~T89T

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.

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.

Battlefront Bespin Platforms

battlfront_bespiniii.zip | 29.34 MB

just so happens to be one of my favourites! So I am glad to see that someone has brought it to JKA. I didn’t actually play the previous version of this map. I saw it, and was going to download it, but something must have interrupted me and I completely forgot, so I was rather pleased to see this in the JKFiles waiting list! :D [b]Let’s start of with the pro’s first of all.[/b] As the author explains in his readme, the amount of space to fly around in has been increased, which means more room for dogfights! The skybox also has a new texture, a re-coloured version of the original Bespin skybox, which I actually think looks rather good (although the original Bespin skybox was actually more accurate colour wise if I remember). He also says there are more ships to use and that the maps geometry has been improved over the last version. One of the most important parts is that there is actually two maps in here! One for the Clone Wars era, and another for the Galactic Civil War era, which I thought was a very nice touch! There is also new music, which goes well with the map, although the music in the Clone Wars era map didn’t sound very good quality. Overall, from what I can remember of the actual Battlefront map, the layout of this map is very accurate, and instantly reminded me of the Battlefront version, so well done there mate! [b]Now, let’s move onto the con’s.[/b] Although the layout of the map is good, the geometry and structures in the map could still do with quite a bit of work. For example the roof of the central platform doesn’t appear to be a proper conical shape, some of its sides are oddly cut and don’t line up properly. I think in examples like this, patches are the best things to use. If you are not a mapper, you probably wont have a clue what patches are, so basically think if it like a mesh rather than the normal solid blocks which you have to cut bits off of. Patches are slightly more advanced though, so I would advise reading up on any tutorials you can find first. The texturing could also do with some more variation, although I am pleased to see that the author has tried using custom textures! :) Also worth considering, is using a sun entity to light the map in a realistic fashion. A tutorial for that can be found [url=http://www.map-review.com/index.php?page=tutorial_view&id=19]here[/url]. All in all a well laid out map here, accurate to the layout of the original battlefront map, although I do believe it could do with more improvements overall. If you decide to do a v4 of this map I will be eagerly waiting here to download it! :) If you guy’s like the look of this map, then give it a download!

Art!st's Skin pack

artsts_skinpack.zip | 8.66 MB

not? Well, y'see, Peace Art!st here has gone and taken the Psycho Mantis, Predator and Kusanagi models and reskinned them. Well, to a degree. And several times. I'll take them all on one at a time, so prepare yourselves. Well, first off, we have the Lieutenant. Opain, by name, it's a reskin of the Mantis. The changes include new eyepieces, a full-head gas mask, something that looks to me like an offspring of a combat vest and a straitjacket, less buckles on the boots and wider belts on the pants. The new textures are nicely done and fit together well. Next is the field medic. Again a reskin of the Mantis, this time it's a light gray jacket and pair of pants, black boots and a full-head mask. There's a red cross on the chest and back of the jacket as well. Again, the textures are well done and look good. Third on the ride is Wreg. A predator by nature, this one's taken a different approach to body armor. You see, Wreg here actually has something that can actually protect one against blows. It's a steel gray suit of something resembling scales and metal. The one thing about this skin that I found really awesome is the skull-like look of the helmet. Oh, and bits and pieces of his decorations and various technological tidbits pulse. Niice. Finally, we have the twins, Mia and Levra. They're based on the Major Kusanagi model and look nearly the same, the only difference being the color scheme. Both have a(n electrified) jacket and boots up to half the thigh, as well as an elongated (and armored) leotard/skirt combination. Levra's jacket and boots are white and the leotard is black, Mia's outfit is the other way around. The hair color is also different (Levra's being blue, Mia's magenta). Well, that's the pack. They're all quite good, the author clearly knows what he's doing. Though there is one thing to note. The author seems to have missed the point of specular maps. They're meant to indicate how strongly a part of the texture reflects light. A dark spot on the spec map reflects very little, whereas a bright spot reflects a whole lot. As such, cloth doesn't need spec maps, it's not nearly reflective enough. Also, if your spec and diffuse maps are the same, it's next to impossible for the average joe to spot the difference. Just something to note for the future. - Jose [b]Bot support:[/b] Nay [b]Npc support:[/b] Wreg only [b]Team support:[/b] See above [b]New sounds:[/b] Oo,aye

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

The Jedi Enclave on Dantooine

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 Dan
