xMod, a mod I'm sure many of you know from the JO days is back, it's one of those useful server side mods that not only help out admins but also make the game more enjoyable in many cases. Things such as x_flipkick will make many people happy who enjoy being able to flip kick while x_profanity_check will please many admins who want to cut out profanity in their servers. One I do NOT like though is x_jawa_model as there is nothing wrong with that model anymore and I will be getting peaved if I go on servers to find it is disabled!
I went to their site to help me get an insight to the mod and I came across this (admittedly lengthy for a review) "What is xMod2?", I think this is a very good way of summing up just what it is, better than what I can do!
What is xMod 2 you ask? Well it's simple. Back in early 2002, Raven and Lucasarts teamed up to create one of the best games in Star Wars history, Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast. The game brought a unique mix of Star Wars and Competitiveness. Players could play for their liking of Star Wars, or for their thirst for gaming in First Person Shooters. It was a game that developed into a fast paced shooter game filled with innovativeness not seen before in the PC world.
A year later... Raven's game Jedi Outcast began to die as more and more news came out about their upcoming release Jedi Academy. Everyone in the JO community was psyched. The month of the release came, then the week, then finally the day. Many gamers rushed to the nearest PC Store hoping for an even better game than Jedi Outcast, with new and improved gameplay mechanics and more. What they got was nothing more than Jedi Outcast + eyecandy. Jedi Academy was a disappointment for many. Not only did the first month include a non-functional Server Browser, but also players wouldn't go for the Jedi Outcast plus a few fancy, yet useless, moves. Not only that, but some of the most key moves of Jedi Outcast used to make combos was removed, and thus the only way to kill your opponent was holding Mouse1 and W.(Attack and Forward, if you use default keys)
Enter xMod. When the SDK was released, xMod creator and pioneer =X=Master HeX went straight to work in an all night frenzy to restore some of the key components of Jedi Academy. xMod 2, the sequel to the amazing xMod of Jedi Outcast, now reunites players with gameplay that is not made for a person who has just picked up the game. xMod 2 neutralizes the gameplay in Jedi Academy, changing it to a game that is actually playable. All the options in xMod 2 are exactly that, optional. This allows for the most control over your server putting the admin back in the driver's seat. All in all: Raven failed us, but HeX has made Jedi Academy a game that can proudly wear the Jedi Knight series name, and has thus saved the series we have grown to love. Welcome to xMod 2.
