Well, here we have another model by Inyri Forge. What has she dug out of her closet this time? Ooh! It’s a crossbow! Yes, a crossbow. You know, one of that old weapon that’s like a bow, only smaller and shoots bolts instead of arrows? Yes, it’s that kind of crossbow.
The model looks nice, and it certainly does look like a crossbow, it’s missing a few things. One of them is the string. Crossbows certainly don’t magically fling arrows, now do they? Well this one does – meaning (if you haven’t already guessed) that it has no string. Well, okay, that’s about the only missing thing on this. Anyhow, Inyri has made bolts (the short, fat crossbow variant of arrows) replace the fire for the blaster rifle, which the crossbow replaces. She’s also changed the model for blaster pack ammunition to a couple of bolts. Now, for some things that could be added: first is that there be a crossbow icon for weapon selection – because right now it’s just the normal blaster rifle. Then next thing is that the icon for blaster pack ammunition be changed to be crossed bolts. (Meaning you see bolts when you pick up bolts instead of seeing a blaster pack). And the last, main thing is that the string for picking up blaster ammo to be changed to something along the lines of “picked up a couple of bolts”. But those are only suggestions to make the model (not the model in itself, the modification as a whole) better.
Inyri has included content in this to make it more enjoyable. One is that she’s changed the firing rate in single player so that it’s slower, and more realistic. She has also included sounds for it. Now, I’ve blabbed about this for long enough. If you like it, download it, and if you don’t, then do the opposite of what I previously said.
*********************************** Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy *********************************** TITLE: Crossbow AUTHOR: Inyri Forge E-MAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org FILENAME: crossbow_if.pk3 DATE RELEASED: 23 January 2007 -------- CREDITS -------- Credits go out to Raven, and all medieval-related games. -------------------------- INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS -------------------------- Put crossbow_if.pk3 in your base folder (located in your Jedi Academy directory). ------------ DESCRIPTION ------------ It's a crossbow. It should have most, if not all, of the appropriate parts, as I tried to make it as accurate as possible. It also actually fires bolts (for the uninformed, these are like arrows... except bulkier). This replaces the blaster rifle. ----- BUGS ----- For single-play, I have included an altered weapons.dat to slow down the firing rate, to make it more believable. However this won't affect MP, so you're going to have a *very* fast crossbow. Also, the blaster stance looks silly from certain angles, since there's no handle on this crossbow. Try to ignore that if you care. --------- COMMENTS --------- I've had this model done for months, and I got to the point where I decided I didn't want to waste it. So enjoy, if it's your kind of thing! ------------------- DISTRIBUTION NOTES ------------------- You may use this modification in mods as long as this read-me is included in your archive, unaltered, and appropriate credit is given.
