This mod works for both single and multiplayer, but I only tested it in multi. This mod will make a mutant rancor rideable, in very much the same way as a tauntaun, except that you can't use your bryar pistol, and you're too high up to hit people with your saber. And you can't even get on if you dont have a high force jump, or nearby ledge :( So it's a very pointless mod, because you cannot actually DO anything with it. However it's extremely fun running bots over, and generally being bigger and better than all your opponents. ;) The second annoying (and slightly odd) thing, is that your rancor never stops moving its legs. It always looks like it's going forward, but doesn't move unless you are pressing the forward key. To add to this, it does stop, but only when you slice it. What kind of odd behaviour pattern is that :D
This mod is a very nice idea, and although it has its fair share of flaws, in both single and multiplayer, the author has promised that more features will be added for the next version, and theat bugs will be fixed. I hope so, because if they are, I can see this becoming a cool mod. So, it's not quite ready yet, and it is rather big for a great deal of maps, but fun nontheless. A very cool idea which has been fairly well converted into a mod, and with the next releases I hope to see great things from it! ;)
*************************** Star Wars: Jedi Knight Jedi Academy 1.01 *************************** Title: Rideable Mutant Rancor Author: ExcelsioN E-Mail: [email protected] File Name: Mutant_rancor_vehicle File Size: 537 Kb Date Released: 12/13/03 Credits: Created by ExcelsioN after a request in Lucasforums. Thanks to all those who participated in the thread, especially the thread starter. Installation Instructions: Unzip the .zip file and its contents into the directory "Lucasarts/Star Wars Jedi Knight Jedi Academy/Gamedata/Base". Launch either JA MP or JA SP,bring down the HUD and type "\npc spawn vehicle mutant_rancor_vehicle". Then jump on to it and do what you like! Description: This is a completely useable rideable mutant rancor (as seen in Jedi Academy Singleplayer). I created it after a request on Lucasforums.com, so thanks to the thread starter. It allows you to ride the mutant rancor like you would any other vehicle, and you can use your lightsaber or (if you have it) a blaster rifle. The vehicle is both multiplayer and singleplayer compatible, but there is a few issues which are mentioned below. I hope to make this a part of a later rideable monsters pack. Feedback, good or bad, is appreciated. **Issues/Bugs** - When you get on the mutant rancor in multiplayer, it looks (to you) the size of a normal rancor. However, to other people on the server, it looks full size (see included screenshot). - In multiplayer, pressing 'use' dosen't always work. If so, just jump on it. - In multiplayer, it continues to walk after you leave it. This has been fixed in singleplayer, and will be fixed in multiplayer at a later date. - In singleplayer,there are clipping issues with the rider sinking into the mutant rancor. This dosen't happen in MP, and will hopefully be fixed in a later version. **Features** - Able to run/charge for a limited time. - Player can shoot from rancor - Both SP and MP compatible - Player can use saber from rancor - Full size Comments: Please note that this is only an early version. A LOT more features will be added later on. Any queries/comments or questions, please e-mail me. Improve this, do whatever you like, but please include a copy of this readme with the file.
