File Description

Remember those vehicles that rolled around on those huge wheels and shot rockets? Hailfire Droids. Well, Duncan and Monsoontide have created a model of one. I'm not sure it's the right scale. I thought they were a bit bigger than this. But I could be wrong. In any case, the model looks great. I did have a little trouble getting into the vehicle at first, but finally was able to jump in.

The hailfire's animation looks great as it rolls around. Quite a smooth ride. :) The author mentioned in the readme that it was made specifically for Siege maps. That could add quite an interesting element to the game. They're much more maneuverable than AT-ST's and are lower to the ground and they shoot rockets! And I love rockets! So yay!

=================================================
Model Name:		"hailfire_droid06.pk3"

Author Mesh:	  	Duncan_10158
			
Contact: 	        http://io.meskinaw.net/

Skins:			Monsoontide   	

Sounds:			Yes

Concept:  		A self-aware mobile missile-platform used exclusively by the InterGalactic Banking Clan, hailfire droids delivered surface-to-surface and surface-to-air strikes with their stacked banks of 30 rocket warheads. 
			Hailfires roll along on oversized hoop-like wheels. In between the bracketing axle arms is a small, central body equipped with a single photoreceptor. 
			When the InterGalactic Banking Clan pledged its forces to the Confederacy of Independent Systems (in a non-exclusive arrangement, of course), its hailfire droids were added to the immense Separatist battle droid army. (starwars.com/databank)

NOTES FROM THE AUTHORS:

This vehicle is for free use for everyone, map, mod or whatever! you got my permission. 
The Hailfire droid is made specialy for siege maps, it could add some great tactic depth if you use it as a selectable player class.

This vehicle has LOD support: 
	LOD 0 :	2357
	LOD 1 :	1560
	LOD 2 :	878

Note about the animation, the JA Quake engine is not made for supporting wheeled vehicles. this causes the backturn and wobeling of the wheels when stoping. i want this vehicle to work without a mod which perhaps could fix or at least make this less visible. so its easier to add into maps we have to take this drawback, ok?

* Installation * 

Place the "hailfire_droid06.pk3" files in this folder 
LucasArts\Star Wars JK III Jedi Academy\GameData\base 

To uninstall remove "hailfire_droid06.pk3" from your 'base' folder.


HOW TO PLAY IN A MAP THAT HAS NOT PLACED THE VEHICLE BY DEFAULT 

to play the vehicles in game start a map in cheat mode, "devmap ffa1".
when the map is loaded, bring down the console "§ + shift" and type in "/npc spawn vehicle hailfire_droid", then make some steps back and the vehicle should be in front of you.
have fun!
