Stance mods do not seem to come along very often. Stance mods for JK2 come along even less often.
This one is supposed to be Asian themed. Now, I may not have a huge knowledge of Asian stances, but the only one that seems to fit is the blue stance, with the saber held pointing straight out. Yellow stance is close to the normal stance, except with this it looks like the holder is breathing deeply. Red stance holds the saber off to the side, horizontally. This mod also changes the running animation to not move the hand with the saber as much when running forward.
A nice little mod, I say. But don't take my word for it. Give it a download and see for yourselves.
*********************************** Jedi Knight 2: Jedi Outcast *********************************** TITLE: Asian Stances AUTHOR: Tsubasa E-MAIL: email@example.com FILENAME: Stances.pk3 FILESIZE: 8.31 KB DATE RELEASED: 21 December 2006 CREDITS: I feel that I must give credit to Japan for the inspiration and LucasArts/RavenSoft for this wonderful series of SW games. INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS: Copy and paste "Stances.pk3" to your gamedata/base folder. If you are unsure how to find it the directory "should" be C:/Program Files/LucasArts/Star Wars JK II Jedi Outcast/ gamedata/base. DESCRIPTION: This is a simple stance mod that changes the three original stances as well as a subtle difference in your running animation. The "new" (old really) yellow stance isn't actually part of the experience. It is the way it is simply to add an idle motion to the player when they stand still with their saber activated. In blue stance, the player now holds the hilt in front and far away from the torso pointed up and a little to the right. In red stance, the player now holds the hilt near the left side of the face with the igniter at eye level pointed upward and the blade igniting diagonally over the corner of the left shoulder. As for that subtle change in running animation, think of running around in SP mode with your lightsaber activated. If you don't know what I mean, pay attention to the arm movement in SP mode before installing this mod. BUGS: No real bugs. This mod works as it should, but if you use a mod that allows you to change how you roll in-game (i.e. Duelers Mod 1.3 and ForceMod 2), this mod will not be usable. COMMENTs: I'm very happy with the turnout of this mod, although I'm also disappointed in the red stance at the same time. The arms in blue stance are stretched out a little too much, looking straight instead of bent in and rested. The red stance simply looks wrong in my opinion. While the right hand is over the left, the stance itself is actually a "lefty" (left-handed) stance technically making the hand placement all wrong. Regardless of some of the "wrong-ness" of the new stances, however, I feel happy with the results when I actually use this mod.
