This is what you've been waiting for!

Some of you already know that I'm building a TFU-Mod for Jedi Academy. The Mods' name will be

Jedi Academy Unleashed

(I hope there won't be any copyright-problems! o_O)

-------------------------

The plan:

- Jedi Academy Unleashed (JAU) will be a "Total Conversion" - It will be SinglePlayer only! - You'll be able to play the story of TFU on your computer! - There will be cutscenes with original sounds from TFU, BUT the cutscenes will be in Jedi Academy graphic (so they'll be a "REMAKE" of the original TFU-cutscenes, just with another engine) - You can move the camera while playing! - High quality models and maps (they'll be as good and detailed as possible) - Health bars - stronger force powers - backhand lightsaber - new animations - TFU-Music - gripable objects, robots and dead bodies

-------------------------

What I did until now:

- reskinned Unsungs' and Schrödingers' Starkiller-Model - build the hangar of the Tie-Facility - a friend of me reskinned the rancor - mixed the Telekinesis Mod with the Jacob's Stance

And some other small changes like backhand saber, camera movement, etc... you can see everything in the videos below...

--------------------------

It IS possible to build a TFU-TC!

But it's tooo hard to do it alone. So I'll start recruiting now.

I need:

- good mappers - good modelers

I don't need skinners, because I can do that myself. A friend of me will try to send me sound effects from the original TFU-game in the best quality as possible.

-------------------------

Permissions:

I will NOT release the Mod, if the people whose models and mods I used don't give me their permissions. I'm talkin of this stuff:

Telekinesis Mod Jacob Stance Starkiller Model (by Schrödiger and Unsung) (talked already to them) Stormtrooper (Haps) <-- Does anyone know how to contact him? - New Lightning effects - "sniper-backhand saber"

Mmh... I think I don't ripped of any other stuff. So I'll try to contact the people... -------------------------

Starkiller Model:

Currently I'm using the "Schröd+Unsung-Starkiller"... But I know, that there are 2 more amazing starkillers coming... There's one on the Void and there's also DLX's Starkiller. If I get ALL permissions, you'll be able to choose between the 3 models at the beginning of the game.

-------------------------

Maps (ATTENTION!!! SPOILERS!!!):

I'm currently building the first level of the game (Tie-Facility)...

About the real first level (ATTENTION! Spoiler ALERT!!!):

Spoiler: Show
I know, that the Vader-Level is the "real" first level of TFU, but I don't want to put it in my Mod... MAYBE as a bonus-map... But the game shall start with Starkiller's first mission... And I think the Kashyyk- Level won't look nice in Jedi Academy...

I will also build

Spoiler: Show
the Executor-Level

What you can do for me:

I need mappers for the following maps:

Spoiler: Show
Felucia, Raxus Prime, Death-Star

But: PLEASE rebuild the maps as good as possible! I made a lot of reference-pics with my camcorder when I played TFU on my X-Box360 to rebuild the Tie-Hangar as good as possible.

-------------------------

Other Models [SPOILERS!!]:

I need people who can build these models:

Spoiler: Show
TFU-Royal Guards (all colors) PROXY Rham Kota Battle-Damaged Vader EVO-Stormtroopers

I was working on a Juno Eclipse-Model in Milkshape 3D, but I can't make it usable for playing. I think there are also no more bones... But if someone want's to finish my work, I can send him the files!

------------------------

Videos:

I already uploaded some videos... At the beginning I did not plan to make a total conversion! I wanted to make a mod for myself.. But when I recognized, that it IS possible, I decided to make a BIG project out of it...

YouTube - Jedi Academy: The Force Unleashed Mod (Watch my new video!)

YouTube - Re: Jedi Academy: The Force Unleashed Mod

YouTube - WIP: Starkiller Reskin (Jedi Academy Unleashed)

YouTube - Jedi Academy Unleashed - Animations

YouTube - Jedi Academy Unleashed - First Map + Camera Movement

About the "Beta-Version": There will be no release until I got the permissions! So don't become angry please! --------------------------

Mod Forums:

The Mod does NOT have any website... but I think I'll set up a website in a few days...

:rolleyes:

So if you want to support this project, just tell me what you can do or show me pictures of WIP-Models/Maps in this thread :)

'DLX [DarkLordXana;4608543']well first off....I have no problem with you including my work..and if you willing to be patient I have maris brood underway and she will be followed by rahm kota...and im gonna start testing a few ideas for proxy while I work on maris...since shes rather simple....so..you know...just sayin..[/quote] Okay thank you! Looking forward to your work! :)

_Snow;4608550looks awesome...the map looks amazing and the force powers look awesome, your going to be loved[/quote] Thank you :):D

[quote=SiLink;4608551]This has the potential to be great and everything you made so far looks very very impressive however as people have pointed out with others requesting a KotOR TC in the past, is it really worth it? Because I can see this game being released on PC in a few months and I'd rather play that than a JKA TC. I don't want to shoot you down however this is my suggestion:

I understand what you want to say. But Lucasarts said, that TFU will definitely NOT be released on the computer... You will NEVER be able to play the original TFU on your PC :( That's why I want to make this mod...

[quote=SiLink;4608551] Perhaps have a completely new story, xxxxx Me personally I'd like to see something new rather than the TFU on JA.

It's a good idea, but sorry, I have to say "no"... MAYBE there will be as many bonus-levels /alternate endings as we want, but at the moment I don't want to change the story. :rolleyes: But I won't forget your idea :)

TFU was over hyped.

Sucks there wont be any PC or MP to it. But honestly like JO or JA they would have to water it down some for MP.

Bunch of ffing Starkillers would be a headache on servers anyway. :Puzzled:
