File Description

The author decided that, after watching A New Hope (that's Episode 4, for those only familiar with the prequels), the blaster bolts in Jedi Academy were much too thick and didn't really reflect how they appeared in the film. I must say I tend to agree with him, to an extent, although I think he may have gone to the extreme end with his changes.

Basically the blaster bolt has been thinned out. That's going to be the big appeal of this mod, although it does make some other small changes, like removing the charge effect from the blaster and reducing the glow. I'm going to say I think they look a little too thin -- kind of like laser pointers now -- but it's really only my preference and this is probably still an improvement in the realism department.

FILENAME: thinblasterbolts.pk3 
FILESIZE: 7.05 kb 
DATE RELEASED: 11 January 2008 

CREDITS: me, myself and I......and ravensoft for the impact effects....and the game and stuff.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS: extract the thinblasterbolts.pk3 into your jediacademyinstallation\gamedata\base  folder, remove to uninstall
                           it may be a good idea to remove any other .pk3 files that will interfere with this one except assets#.pk3 files.

DESCRIPTION: This mod is supposed to resemble a new hope's blaster effects for "realism" sake. basicly it:

- Changes blaster bolt picture and glow into a thinner ones.
- Removes all charging effects for blaster pistol (charging sound, glowing ball at muzzle tip) except the bolt is slightly lightened.
- Pistol also uses blaster bolt image for both normal and charged shot (so its all red) 
- Blaster uses pistols alt charge wall impact effect, so it looks more powerful and realistic.
- Both weapons make smoke impact effects when shooting someone. 

BUGS: - The reduced glow will be on other things that use the same effect (eg. fletchete and bowcaster) so they may look strange.
      - Also there appears to be extra colours and stuff polluting the outside of the bolt which can only be seen when the bolt is 
        moving really slow, this is most evident on the charged pistol bolt, though u cant see it normaly on any bolt.
      - The console will complain about a altcharge.mp3 not working, thats a good thing. 

COMMENTS: Remove the whiteglow.jpg from gfx\effects for full glow and red core which will stop no.1 bug
          remove the briarfrontflash.jpg briarsideflash.jpg from gf\effects and the sound folder for normal pistol charging effects.
          The reason i removed them was because you dont see han solo charging his pistol to get a 1 hit kill so its for realism sake.

 feel free to contact me about anything related as im glad to help
