Boinga1 has pieced together an Episode I mod for those of you who feel the need to play as Anakin against Darth Maul. Many of the characters from the game are replaced with Episode I models and skins. Tavion is now Aurra Sing, Stormtroopers are appropriately transformed into Battle Droids, the bartender is now Watto, Lando is Mace Windu and of course, Luke is Qui-Gon. There are new sounds for everything, it seems and even new music for Yavin_final.
I think the best part about this mod has to be that you have a saber and limited force from the very beginning. As you go through the game, your force increases. None of the story has changed and there are no new maps. So just think of this as an enhanced JK2 SP game.
Unfortunately, I did run into a few shader errors, but it didn't seem to affect the game, so ... yeah. Anyway, my opinion of this mod is sort of neutral. I didn't have any expectations, so I wasn't disappointed, but I wasn't blown away by anything because not much was changed here.
Ps. Completely unimportant, but thought I'd tell you anyway. There is a point in which there's a close up of Desann's face (in a cut scene, I believe). Since Darth Maul replaces Desann and he's not nearly as big, you get a close up of the Zabrak's horns on his head ...which is rather funny, considering how dramatic it's supposed to be at that moment. ;)
(PPS. Opps! Silly me, that's Obi-Wan, not Anakin. I blame it on lack of caffiene, I had no coffee, and there wasn't a can of Jolt to be found in the house. Did I mention I had no caffiene? ~AmosMagee)
