Finally I got a chance to try out this much talked about mod - Attack of the Clones: Total Conversion. At first glance, you might not be impressed, but you have to remember that this is just a demo - and an early demo, at that.
You might recognize a few features from other mods. There's a profanity filter, like the one found with xMod. It also has RGB sabers, which offers quite a bit of variety. There's an illegal macro/script detection and deletion thingy. You can't use force while saber down (I'm sure that feature can be toggled on and off), admins can teleport someone by name, not just by origins. So there's a lot of stuff here that should make admins very happy. :)
There are new gametypes and all of the JK2 gametypes. There's an Anti-Lag system and there's a file that stores banned IP's, much like in the JA/JAR mod. Probably the coolest new feature is weather control. You can add lightning, rain and a sandstorm all at once. :) From what I understand, this is like, the mod to end all mods. ;) There are more gametypes that will be added and there's a ton of other stuff you can expect in later releases. Keep at it guys! Great work!
Ps. This review is like, dedicated to Plague, for no particular reason - except that he asked that I dedicate a review to him. ;)
