Now this is the kind of trailer that will make you drool. Surely you all remember the smashing hit single-player mod Escape: Yavin IV? Well, just when you thought it was a good mod, we're getting another! This puppy is entitled "Escape: Yavin IV - The Lost Maps". This mod promises brand new content, a brand new story, and a lot of what you loved from the first mod.
But anyway, I should be reviewing the trailer, shouldn't I? The actual in-game filming is a little choppy due to low FPS, but it's not too bad, and it shows what it needs to. Impressive new weapons and models, altered menus, new maps, the works. And the title screens in between, coupled with a good choice of music, really get you ready for the final release, which is slated for February 2006. Not too far off, right? Not much waiting!
And what's better than seeing a trailer of an awesome mod? Being able to beta test an awesome mod! Darrow Linder is looking for several beta testers to test this puppy out during January, so check the read-me for more information on that.
This mod looks awful promising, and I'm sure planning on downloading it once it's released. I just hope I am not disappointed, though by the looks of it, and the popularity of the original mod, I'm sure that's not going to be an issue.
*********************************** Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy *********************************** TITLE: E:Y4 - The Lost Maps (Trailer) AUTHOR: Darrow Linder E-MAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org FILENAME: ey4_trailer.zip FILESIZE: ~16.5 MB DATE RELEASED: 04 December 2005 INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS: Unzip, and double click. Simple as that. DESCRIPTION: This is a .wmv showcasing a new total conversion based on my original conversion, Escape: Yavin IV. As a followup to the original conversion submitted in February, I decided to revisit the maps, sounds, effects, models, levels, story, menus, etc. and put together a new conversion, with all new everything. Many of the original levels are in there still, some significantly altered, but a new story with multiple endings will allow for better repeat play. The conversion is in the final stages of development -- only a few maps are left to finish up and some polishing details remain. I hope you enjoy what you see and hope even more you look forward to this new single player campaign. NOTE: Video is low quality and in game appearance and lighting is much better than the video shows. The original mod can be found by following the link below: http://jediknight2.filefront.com/file/Escape_Yavin_IV;37749 BETA TESTERS WANTED: NOTE: I am looking for 3-5 Beta testers to volunteer with testing the conversion in January. I expect you to be proficient (er... an expert would be preferred) in JKA and know a thing or two about modding, just to simplify the communication. I want someone that won't hesitate to be frank and detailed about problems, enhancements, or other things that would improve the game overall. Please contact me by December 31st at the email address above if you are interested.
