This is a nice surprise...a very useful mod by our buddy, Jose: Throwable objects!
First order of business....the PK3 is named "throwable_sfutt.pk3" Sfutt? Made me laughsfutt. XD Sorry, just had to point that out.
But yunz are here for the file review, no doubt. I found this file quite amusing. The concept is neat - throwable objects. But what made it amusing was Jose's choice of objects. They range from several crates and a table, to a stone statue and even the Millenium Falcon! That one was the most fun.
Better still, according to the readme, you mappers out there can use these in your maps. This is really neat for a map with a hangar bay or cargo area - now you can add more realism!
Now, on the downside...As Jose mentioned in the readme, due to time contraints, some of the objetcs (like the Millenium Falcon) aren't properly clipped, so you can walk through the model. I was fine with that, although there was one other thing that bothered me. Apparently, these objects aren't meant to be destroyed, because when I threw them into pits, they just disappeared without exploding. If you do a version 2, definitely see what you can do about that.
Well, there you have it. If you like playing solo and want things to throw around, or you want to make videos, or you want to have the coolest hangar bay map ever, download this!
*********************************** Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy *********************************** Name: Throwable Stuff Version: 1.0 Author: Jose Carlos E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org CREDITS -------- I'd like to extend my gratitude to the following people/creatures: To Master Yoda, for demonstrating the usability of the Force to lift all kinds of stuff. To Jalechah for a great idea that saved me several hours of work and brainpain. And last but not least to the fine folk of the JKfiles forums for their support and enthusiasm. INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS -------------------------- Put the .pk3 in GameData/Base. DESCRIPTION ------------ Remember how Yoda ripped the X-Wing out of the swamp in ESB? Ever wanted to follow his lead? Well, now you can! This pack here contains a collection of (mainly) baseJA map objects that have been tampered with and can now be gripped, pushed, pulled and generally used to smack others around. Great fun, I assure you. Now, this pack is a whole lot more fun in SP, where you can just flip out, give yourself a godly reserve of Force power and go wild. Unfortunately the MP portion of the game won't allow you to use two force powers at the same time (like grip and push, which is pretty much what this pack relies on), but they're still fun in online bouts. For extra enjoyment use a cheat to set the game's knockback level higher (g_knockback 4000 should be adequate, although 10000 and up is made of awesome) and take full advantage of your ability to push a half-ton crate into some poor shmuck's nose. In closing, I would like to paraphrase a few lines from Conan the Barbarian. What is good about the Force? You can use it to crush your enemies, see them driven before you and hear the lamentations of their women. BUGS ---- I didn't do any jiggery-pokery on the bounding boxes, so one can easily trip over something tiny and walk through parts of the larger stuff. Also, seeing how the models are considered as npcs, if you jump on them they'll throw you off. They can still be used for leverage in jumps, though.
