I didn't make it!
I am fairly new to the JK3 multiplayer scene. I was just wondering what are the most common downloaded enviornments that are used in the free for all and dueling sessions? I want to know which ones I should download first since I have a slow 56k modem. I know it will take a long time to download most of them.
What's this? Nobody's responded after 6 days? *tsk tsk*... I guess I'll give it a shot...
I assume by environments you mean maps, since those are really the only required things you must download to join certain servers. There are lots of good maps that are used, but one of the most common (last I checked) was A Jedi's Home II (~15 MB). Sith-J-Cull's maps also tend to be pretty popular, though they also tend to be a lot larger in size, so they might not be quite as feasible for a 56k.
Don't feel compelled to have to download maps, though. There are plenty of servers that use the standard maps that come with the game. However, you also need to make sure you've downloaded the 1.01 patch. You need it to join nearly all of the multiplayer servers.
I think that mostly covers it... the rest of the mods are optional; if you don't have them, they'll simply appear as the default model, skin, etc. With the exceptions of ForceMod II, Movie Battles 3, etc, but you don't need to worry about those. I hope this helps (and I also hope you haven't already abandoned all hope of receiving help in this dark realm and do return to check this thread ;))
Oh yeah, and one more thing: Most people, for duels, just join Free For All servers that are made for dueling. That way, you don't have to wait forever in line just to have your hiney handed to you on a golden platter. Instead, you can have it handed to you again as soon as you respawn! :D

*whistles* *coughs* Yeah, I wish...
I really, really hope you don't try to run that on a JA server...[COLOR=Red]*cough*[/color]
I don't play JA MP that much, but isn't there an autodownload option? If there is can't you just download the map the server requires without searching all over a site for the most popular maps at the moment.
Someone PLEASE change my name!
