For a week now I have been trying to find out how to edit JK2 like the makers of Promod & JediPlus/OmniMod teams do. I haven't recieved a response from the Promod creator, & never even got the chance to ask the JediPlus coder because his clan has very rude forum administrators who won't even allow you to speak!

When JediPlus was 3.x (I think it was when it was 3.x) I talked with the coder & he seemed to be a nice guy, I told him about the new rank idea that I had & he said he liked the idea but it wasn't something he was going to start on ASAP as he was on vacation at the time. I tried asking him how I could go about adding it & he told me that you would have to change the code to do it, so it was really something I should leave to him.

Now I spent an hour posting over 20 ideas for new versions of JediPlus/OmniMod in their threads (http://www.omniclan.com/forums). The first response was sort of like hey I like this idea, hey I like that idea; But there were some other ideas that I really thought should be in there (or at least an option), so I posted a requesition on getting in contact with the actual coder. Once I did that, one of the administrators removed my entire thread! I posted a new thread asking why they removed the thread, then they just removed that one as well. So I PM'ed the administrators & the administrator named "Spectrum" replied that there would be no more JediPlus's & if I had ever PM'ed him again I would be banned from the forums. So lets get this straight now... I would be banned for asking them questions they not only won't answer, but won't even allow to be asked in the forums (perhaps they are practicing to work for the CIA :-)?

Here's another thing I don't get, if there are going to be no more JediPlus/OmniMod mods, why didn't they say that on the first response to the thread? Instead they posted hey I like this idea, or hey I like that idea. Like I said, when I talked to the coder some time ago he seemed to be a cool guy, we didn't talk long but at least he wasn't rude like some of these administrators.

Look people, all I wanted to know here was how to edit JK2. I realize it isn't going to be easy but I'm tired of having all these ideas & everyone telling me that they are great & then no way for me to make it a reality 1: on the count of some rude administrators, & 2: lack of coder knowledge. I don't care what it takes, I want to do this, please help.

I am going to post a forward to this thread on their forums, we'll just see how mature they are on whether or not they ban me for posting my opinion, because lets face it, perhaps Spectrum & the other admins were having a bad day & didn't mean to be rude, but the fact of the matter is, it was rude. I bet they are going to remove the forward to this thread, but we'll see what happens.

Perhaps I have this thing pegged all wrong, perhaps it was rude of me to ask to speak with the coder & I owe them an apology; But I don't see how. I would just email the coder as I used too, but I had wiped my computer recently & my records don't go back that far.

What do you guys think? Am I the rude one, or were they?

Those snooty B#$^@%*&, Its bad enough they take everyones mod and put in there's, but now they wanna ignore and threaten you. Chances are they're just gonna take the ideas you posted and use them. Either they're too lazy to tell you or they're trying to keep as a secret, who knows?

But there is one other person you can ask and that's the creator of the Vulcanus Admin Mod.

lol, thanks mate, I will try asking the vulcanus coder.

Just so everyone knows, this whole shpeal only pertains to 1, possibly 2 forum administrators & not the whole clan, nor (at least I don't think) the actual JediPlus coder. Like I said, when I emailed the coder (a while back ago, no longer have the email addy) he seemed like a cool guy & was very helpful.

Well, reviewing the older versions of JediPlus it would seem that Spectrum is either the coder or at least the uploader for JediPlus.

or maybe they're using the code to take over the world by programing a space station in the shadow of Earth that will destroy the major cities of the world. Sry too many James Bond movies

Maybe there's no more JediPluses and just omnimods, that basicly ARE jediPlus.

Let me straighten something out right now. Spectrum is BOFH. He is the mod editor of JediPlus and all forms of it like Omnimod. He is also owner of jediplus.moddb.com website and the admin and owner of the forums on that site. He is not a high ranking individual in the clan and if there was a problem, you should've contacted one whom is.

His mods are his and as a Side leader with our clan, I have no ties to it other than it is running on our temp servers. As far as the admin of the forums goes, if you look to the side of each area, you will see he is admin of almost all of them.

So before you start throwing stones, make sure you have all your facts and don't generalize one person's rudeness (which in this case is the same person) with the rest of the clan.

Marker0077:

JediPLUS is no longer supported. And honestly im very angry with you Marker.. I am the creator/coder of JediPLUS, and you had NO RIGHT to go and criticize Omni for my personal actions against you. You were 100% aware that JediPLUS 4.3 was the last version, and I PM'd you with this information and the response to why your post was deleted. If you have problems understanding how the private messaging system on forums works, you should not be registered on them.

Lord-Asp[OmNi]: So before you start throwing stones, make sure you have all your facts and don't generalize one person's rudeness (which in this case is the same person) with the rest of the clan. & also Spectrum: you had NO RIGHT to go and criticize Omni for my personal actions against you

It appears that both of you had read ONLY MY FIRST POST, if you had read my second post you would have saw Marker0077: Just so everyone knows, this whole shpeal only pertains to 1, possibly 2 forum administrators & not the whole clan, nor (at least I don't think) the actual JediPlus coder. Like I said, when I emailed the coder (a while back ago, no longer have the email addy) he seemed like a cool guy & was very helpful. If you had read the 3rd post I made you would see I figured out Spectrum is the coder; So again, I mean't no disrespect towards the clan & never DID I SAY ANYWHERE that the clan had acted this way, it always stated the forum admin(s), which is Spectrum. Secondly, Spectrum: If you have problems understanding how the private messaging system on forums works, you should not be registered on them. I know how to work them just fine, I just didn't appreciate you 1: Removing my thread & not telling me why when I posted a new thread asking why, then again, removing that thread & not telling me why & 2: Telling me I would be banned if I ever PM'ed you again. It's not like I am PM'ing you saying something stupid like "How are you, well, bye". I had a legit question & I just found the way you handled it rude, but more importatantly TOTALLY UNNECESSARY.

If JediPlus/OmniMod is no more why remove the thread? Why not just post a message saying we're not doing the mod anymore? Why was it necessarry to remove the post. The ideas themselves could be used for other coders.

Anyways, the bottom line here is that if Spectrum doesn't want to do the mod anymore thats his business, I was looking for a little knowledge on how I can do this myself & I completely got shut out, then threatened about being banned. We all have our bad days & I'm going to assume that Spectrum was having one for responding in the fashion he did. I appologize for being rude, but lets face it, wouldn't you do the same thing if someone had treated you like that?

Lets get to the point here, I am sure that I am not the only person in the JK2 community that wants to know how Spectrum did the stuff he did with JK2. That's what this is all about, knowledge, & that's what I (along with everyone else reading this thread & other threads similar) am still in search for. There is nothing about this anywhere.

How do we mod JK2 like Spectrum did with JK2?

That is why this game is slowly dying. Too many tight lipped people.
