File Description

For every mod that has it's good sides, there is one whose good sides is overshadowed by the bad sides.

This mod is one of them.

I'm going to keep this somewhat vague and general, because if I go in-depth into this mod, I'll come dangerously close to flaming.

The only real good thing I can find, is that it adjusts the scoring penalty system to be a bit more severe on teamkillers, and more rewarding for those who partake in teamwork. The AI is a bit more intelligent too, although the rest of the mod unbalances the game so much, that it's impossible to tell.

On the bad sides, well, just about everything else listed in the readme has some unbalancing and/or destabilizing effect on the game. Just read the readme - you'll pretty much see for yourself.

What I will say, is this. The game has limitations for a very valid reason, and those limitations should not be completely removed. I'm all for new content and minor changes, but when that content includes permanently having cheats enabled with no way to disable them, sabers which make the game's default sabers and other balanced weapons useless, and weapons so overpowered that there's no challenge in using any of them - first shot wins - it's unacceptable.

Because it removes every limitation, it also removes every ounce of challenge, strategy, tactics, balance, and fun from the game. Hence, why those limitations are necessary. I now have a whole new respect for JA+.

My advice is to avoid this. Rather than fix the multitudes of problems with Jedi Academy, it escalates them beyond repair, then takes everything that's not broken and gives it the same treatment. From a professional standpoint, I can only be thankful it's not serverside.

Sorry if I offend anyone, but that's really the way it is. Just read the changes list.
