Whilst I agree that NPCs are certainly smarter than bots, you get to a certain point where you've watched enough NPCs duke it out that you begin to wonder whether they're really better, or whether the bots just lack brains altogether. Personally if I were going to train myself to be a better JKA player (and let's face it, I'm a lost cause!) I certainly don't think I'd rely on NPCs to bring my skills up to par. However, to be fair, I suppose it's good practice when no one else is around. And if you can survive against these over-inflated NPCs, you deserve a medal!
This pack includes 11 NPCs, all using default game resources, that have some beefed up stats, and it is set up so that there are five levels of difficulty, with level 1 being the easiest and level 2 being the hardest. I have to admit, I wasn't planning on testing these in-game until I took a look at the NPC file. To whet your appetite, the first NPC in the NPC file has a force regen of 999 and 2000 HP. Sounds like fun, doesn't it!? To further amuse you, the second NPC in the list is a shadowtrooper with Chewbacca sounds. Now I couldn't resist getting a sample of that one in-game, and lo and behold I did hear a Wookiee roar or two. The odd thing about these is at least two of the NPCs sport at least four separate soundsets! There is even a Desann NPC with Ragnos and rancor sounds. Weird...
For those who enjoy testing their might against NPCs, this may be an ideal pack, as it provides both a challenge and a giggle here or there as that evil shadowtrooper screeches at you in Shyriiwook!
By the way, iron_gauntlet, the reason force_lvl_2 will make Tavion sounds sometimes is because you have set it to.

You may want to check over your soundsets next time before packaging it up!
