Dear fellow gamers . I come before you as new member on forum , but as veteran in playing and moding JA with a question : Do we want a sequel to Jedi Academy ? I think we all would answer this question with yes. This year will be three years since the release of the JA and there is still no trace or any rumor of sequel. There are plenty of stories that could be used like (already mentioned) Yuzan vong menace or Jacen and Jaina Solo life stories (there are plenty of stories and plots in star wars novels) , technology is also available ( new quake engine , unreal engine ….) . Most important is the fact that after all this time there are still countless number of servers and mods and maps and so on and so on. I am also aware that have been several attempts to do something about this matter SO I ASK FOR YOUR COUNCIL WHAT SHOULD WE DO ? (ps: sorry for long speach)

YES i do ! That is just what you do if the game was to be made , but untill then.... There is also a petition with sad 80 sings. Both of those threads are not serious enough. if game is to be made ever we need to organize and try to do something to influence lucasarts (or at least try) to convince them that it will be profitable game , because i seams that that is only this that motivates them... LETS GET A BIT SERIOUS FOR A MOMENT.... we can do it !

I sent a email to avitivision a while ago, not from a gamers point but a business point telling them all the money they can make. No responce. I dont think they will ever even think about it untill the episode 3 hype has died down.

Activision can't do a thing about a future JK game being made. They're the publishers, Ravensoft are the developers. And either way, they're not gonna listen to any of you. LucasArts and Ravensoft run the master servers, remember? Meaning, they know how many people on average still play JKA online. And, they obviously don't feel that there are enough players still playing JK2 and JKA for a future title to be profitable, otherwise they would have made one already. It's all cost vs profit. The game would cost quite a bit to make, and they don't believe there will be enough customers buying it to make up the costs. And, this argument isn't really any more effective than the others. You say there are a lot of servers, but you neglect to mention how many of those are home-hosted servers, and how most servers are consistently empty. You also seem to have measured the activity of the modding community by how many mods have been released. This is wrong. The proper way to measure the modding community's activity, is by finding the average amount of mods released weekly. (Maybe some JKFiles staff member would give us a number crunch on the average weekly submissions?) (And no, half-assed skins which are the result of 5 seconds of work with Hue/Saturation, ported/Frankensteined models, and decompiled and stolen/decompiled and Frankensteined maps don't count. Neither do those worthless scripts and configs certain people decide to release, which do practically nothing.) The JKA community, compared to most other gaming communities, is practically dormant, both in-game and in modding.


I don't know how, and I don't know why, but this is totally Sheep's fault.

It does not matter quality of the mods, maps, models….. What is important is that after three years they are still being made ! And even if ALL servers were empty it still means that game is still popular ! Our community is (of course) much larger then our one at file front and there are so much more people playing game using LAN than online. Our community is so big that ,if we could unite, we could probably influence lucasarts to consider possibility of making new JK. There is no point in surrendering and giving up the hope, or desperately waiting for years…..

Dude... If all the 'net servers are empty, that says that the community is SMALLER than the FileFront community..... Also, bearing in mind that playing over LAN requires all the players to be using computers which are in the same room and hooked together with cables... Wait, you do know what a LAN is, right? I'll give you a clue: it ain't a baby sheep. I think it's safe to say that the bulk of the community would play online rather than LAN, as with any other game. And, it does matter about the quality of mods being made. Most of the hue/saturate skins which take less than a second, or simple stuff like a cheat config, don't really apply. Look at other games - they constantly have completely original maps, models etc being released. JKA has very few of these. Meaning, modding communities for other games have actual modders in them, rather than the breed of modder who make an over-skinned model plain grey and think they're modding gods. Y'know, the kind which crap sites like the old PCGM spawned. :rolleyes: Games cost a lot to make. On average, professional programmers earn roughly $25,000+ a year (according to a random Google search). That's for one programmer. Imagine how much a whole staff would cost. Then, add in the bills the company has to pay (electricity, etc), then the cost of equipment and software (3DS Max alone is $3,500), then liscencing fees, publishing costs, shipping costs.... Now, imagine how many copies of a $50 game they'd have to sell to cover all that. Give up the crusade. There just aren't enough players left in JKA to convince LucasArts or Raven Software that there's a profit to be made from a future game. "Never giving up hope" and "desperately waiting for years" aren't the correct terms... I think "being realistic" is more accurate.

[COLOR=darkgreen]There's not much your going to do to convince them, unless you have a HUGE freaking crowd behind you, which you don't. Just keep playing JA.[/COLOR]

Besides, there probably won't be any major game development until 64bit technology is dominant and your average comp will have more to offer than any console game.

[COLOR=darkgreen]Man i hope we don't have to wait too long on 64bit, but it's still a ways off. I mean sure you can get the processors now, but it's a waste because you can't fully utilize it. And who's to say the consoles won't just upgrade to 64bit in a new gen. I dunno why consoles are still so popular, computers should just swollow the whole gaming market, it's better on a pc.[/COLOR] sry for a bit off topic
