As an immense fan of JK2's singleplayer game, I find this mod to be somewhat of a desecration.
The intention behind it is to change everyone in JK2 to be more "comical", but there's nothing even remotely amusing about this. Every model used in the SP game has had the random MS Paint reskin treatment, which consists mostly of squiggles, odd shapes crudely drawn on, and white boxes with red text saying stupid comments. Kyle's voice has also been edited, but only some voice clips from the ns_streets level.
Apparently the author intends to give the same treatment to the whole game. If that happens, I anticipate that the author will become well-known for all the wrong reasons. Mods often require effort. Mods often do something useful. And mods often don't annoy the players and reviewers so much that they get sick and tired of it and type /quit in the console before they've even seen a quarter of it. Look at the screenshots, you'll understand why I didn't play past the bartender cutscene.
I'm sorry to say this, but this one really isn't worth your time. If you really want random squiggles on your player models, you can do it yourself, and you'll probably get a much better result than what this mod gives.
I'm going to advise the author on one factor - don't do anything unless you know what you're doing. Read tutorials before you start modding, it helps. You had the idea to do an SP mod, and to give JK2 a bit of modernisation, which is a good idea. But not when executed like this.
I've said it before, and I'll say it again. Check out the Master Sticky for tutorials.
If you really feel the need to do this, the download link is there for you to use at your own discretion. But rather than improve JK2's SP, this makes it virtually unplayable due to the mass annoyance.
