I love the army today. And i like JKA. I know there are different games that have this stuff e.g: BF series, but it would be cool to have tanks, humvee's, jet fighters, helis etc on JKA though. If you want a pic or something to help you make them, then here they are. British Challenger Tank American M1 Tank Apache Chinook Harrier
The harrier and apache already exist. The problem with ground vehicles is that the engine doesn't support the physics to make them work properly, and they they end up with strange, unrealistic effects, lke floating off the ground to avoid collision damage.

check out the omaha beach mod on jk3files.com
I know, but check out driving the tanks down the slope... The front end comes right off the ground.
Ye i guess thats true really. But ive never made a vehicle or got a program to make one but, couldnt you like, make a tank even if it looks straight? I could make a battlefield (not the game) map and make it mostly flat so the tank would run well on it! Same with APC's, Humvee's etc on it. You said there was already an Apache and a Harrier? I cant see it on JK3 Files. Plz tell me where i could find it!
Well, the mods are going to yell at me for this but...

I'm not going to yell at you, but I am going to say this:
You clicked the 'I Agree' button when you signed up, stating that you agreed to follow the rules. Either abide by the terms you agreed to in exchange for the use of these forums, or log out. It's entirely up to you.
Make your choice now, or eventually someone else will make it for you.
I believe the Apache and Harrier he was talking about are both ported models. The only ones I've ever seen for JKA were ported, at any rate. We have, like, no modern-era content in this community which isn't in violation of several copyright laws.
As for the tank, Jedi Academy doesn't have the necessary support for ground vehicles. You could definitely have it, yeah, but it'd behave like a swoop. If you're OK with that, then I guess there's no problem.
I don't know how, and I don't know why, but this is totally Sheep's fault.

Question: My not make the tank a Walker and animate the the torret of the tank to turn as you turn like the ATST as well as animate the wheels and track for walking animation as well as some sort of death animation for it. I'd rather a tank act like a walker than a swoop, which would be very unrealistic.
I have a vehicle request of my own...regular cars.
Oh shame, the harrier and Apache were ported, didnt know that, soz. Well, why cant you just make the tank like the way Talonalus said, make it behave like a walker but make it animate like a tank? You can change the sounds for the wheels, and in 1.01 or JA+ whatever (im in 1.00) you can turn the cannon round cant you? Like the ATST? Primary button will fire the cannon, Second will fire the machine!
As for the aircraft, that will be a little more easier since there are flying vehicles in JKA already. (maybe while your at it, you could make a British/American soldier?)
Sorry, I was actually referring to the advertising thing, I didn't realise they were ported either.
