My review of Aidy's first version of the Stances Mod:
Mmkay, yay! A stances mod! But not really. I, like Aidy, hate the JA walk. Y'know, when you're trying to look all intimidating to your opponent and stuff, but the walk just looks ludicrous? Thankfully, Aidy fixed that in this Stances Mod. But it's not really a stances mod. It's just called that. No stances have been changed. The walk for all three sabers have been changed though! YAY! But wait ... there's more! The roll animations are also different! The roll forward kinda like, makes your character dive forward, with their body completely horizontal and then into a hand spring like thing and up. It's pretty cool. The side roll is now the cartwheel and the backwards roll - oh wait - is that even possible with the patch now? I tried and tried, and didn't get to see the Maul type acrobatic flippy thing (technical term).
I rarely ever keep mini mods like this. I don't like to change my game too much. But when it fixes a few things that I didn't like, then yeah, I'm gonna use it. Great work here, Aidy!
So while the first version of this mod didn't change actual stances, it did change the walk. Now Aidy has modified his Stances mod to actually make new stances for each saber choice. I have to say though, that the stances are a little awkward. To go from the blue stance with a single saber into the lunge, it just doesn't seem to flow well, y'know? But it still looks kinda cool.
The roll animations stayed the same and there are a lot more changes in this second version. Download it and try it out for yourself. :)
*************************** JEDI Academy MOD *************************** Title : stances_V2 Author : Aidy E-Mail : email@example.com Website : http://homepage.ntlworld.com/aidy1972 (See some shots of Starwars Galaxies) File Name : stances_V2.zip File Size : Instructions : Extract the file to you're base folder this will overwrite my other stances mod. Description : A mod to change saber stances and a few other animations Comments : A re-work of my previous stances mod, which didn't actually have any stances changed at all! Now it has! Side Note : Many animations/stances have been changed for this version of my mod. All - if not most saber stances have been changed. List of changes (off the top of my head): The jetpack movement animations have been changed, now look a whole lot more like the player is actually effecting the movement whilst in air! The posture has been changed when you step off an edge, no longer goes into the 'tucked up' position, looks more like someone would look getting ready to land! The taunt animations for Duel & Staff sabers have been changed. The walk for single saber has changed also. All previous animation changes from earlier mod have been kept. Known Bugs : None that I'm aware of. Some transitions from stance to an attack may seem a little odd but other than that can't think of any at all. Any comments/feedback is welcome.
