As I'm browsing through my collection of old games, I'm thinking to get back in a few of them. Of the games, I'm thinking of getting back into the Jedi Knight series of games. Well, at least Jedi Academy.

While I think I may frequent more action-based servers, I've succumbed to boredness and I'm willing to be open to anything. So, I'm wondering: What kind of player models/skins, maps, mods, or anything else are people using en masse in any of the JA servers?

I'm pretty sure I can find out and either dust up an old collection of mods or find some new ones here at FileFront, but I'd still like people's thoughts here.

First , welcome back to JA community. Well , I don`t play JA online very much and I stick to one server. To be more specific , it belongs to (JAWA) clan. I can tell you what I noticed on it. First , that server uses JaPlus 2.4 Beta. It uses all game`s default maps (I think) , plus several custom maps. Those maps are: - The Academy v3 - Bespin FFA - Jedi Council GCX (not sure about the link to this one) - Jedi`s Home v2 About skins. From what I noticed , some people use games`s default skins and some use custom skins that I usually don`t have , so I see bunch of Kyles and ocasionally some Jan (not many female players around :(). Currently , I`m useing Human Female version of Jaden. My friend uses Zabrak Female (yes Doodle , I`m talking about you ;)).

That was a given. I think the last build of that mod I tried was, I think, B17; around two or three years ago.

Tanith;4351292Depends what you want.

If you are the kind of person who likes to use force powers/Role Play/Want to learn the complete basics than I would suggest JA+ mod.

Yeah JA+, or lugormod.. Also, if you like the movies.. Movie Battles - Home (You need to download it if you want to play on MB2 servers). Edit: Ikyojo, thats not true. The latest version is RC1, Build 19 was a complete different build..

You could download JA+, Lugormod, Clanmod, or Makermod. Makermod is good if your into constructing. But it lacks security. For maps I would download the ones that are always in the top 20. Sithcouncil, Jed's Home JL II, The Academy v3; and even Requiem Sanctuary.

I really really would not reccomend using Requiem Sanctuary.just yet as it has been proven by myself and GrizzlyBear over at Alchemic Servers that it has some sort of map leak and whenever the map has been on for around 10 minutes it sends the entire servers CPU and RAM usage through the roof (Grizzly tested it serveral times) but the other maps are fine and the author of Requiem Sanctuary.is working on the problem as we type :P.

Welcome back to the forums :)

Welcome back! :D - Jedi Council GCX

Jedi_Sabrina;4349356About skins. From what I noticed , some people use games`s default skins and some use custom skins that I usually don`t have , so I see bunch of Kyles and ocasionally some Jan (not many female players around :(). Currently , I`m useing Human Female version of Jaden. My friend uses Zabrak Female (yes Doodle , I`m talking about you ;)).

Yeah, I also used Human Female first but Zabrak is more... kitten! :lol: And for any reason I like the concept of component models.

I don't use many skins - almost none (cause they slow up my game on loading, some aren't even proper done and annoy me with errors & some look like **** - some?). But I'm a great fan of models and have to recommend those of artists like Mars Marshall, HapSlash and Spanki - to mention a few. BTW, my fav vehicle is Episode III Jedi Starfighter by Manquesa cause it doesn't only look great, it's also great to fly. :bows:

@SiLink: thx for the hint. As it's a really nice map I'm glad to hear that the author works on...
