Escape: Yavin IV | 109.39 MB

models, new cutscenes, animations, etc. All of this is new and it's all done quite well. It was a bit of a challenge for me and I didn't even come close to finishing it (mostly because of a time restraint). If you've been bored with the SP game from Jedi Academy, you might want to check out Escape: Yavin IV. The only things I was disappointed in are significant, but don't make or break this game. The size, of course, is a factor. It's over 100MB in size, so it's going to take a while to download for quite a few of you. Second complaint would be the voice acting. It was all done by one person. And I'm not quite sure why the Queen's voice had a tinny sound to it. That didn't make any sense. Anyway, try getting more people to help voice act for your levels - there are quite a few out there who are willing. Several guys I know out there who'd be interested. And there are fewer women available, but I'm one of them! :D [/shamelessplug] Aaaaaaanyway, if you can tolerate the download - check this total conversion out! ~AmosMagee Ps. There's a walkthrough included! Okay, totally going to cheat and play this all the way through later. :D

C3PO v2 | 588.69 KB

did. Admit it, it’s a bit disappointing when Raven just decides to not implement a C3PO into JKA. However, the model was boned and weighted, and now skinned. It looks great! The model is VERY detailed, down to the wires in the shoulder blades. It has a few dents and rusts spots to make it look all the more realistic. In addition, the model also has team support. Red team has a rusted version of our favorite little droid, and blue team gets a silver version. The default is the normal gold one, which also turned out quite nicely. The addition of team support is usually enough to make a skin or model worth it, but wait, there’s more! Macman has also fixed a missing leg glitch in his original! No longer do we need to watch a suffering C3PO limping along with one leg. ;) The skin ALSO comes with bot support. That’s right folks, you can pulverize the poor little thing as much as you want, and it can’t do anything about it! ;) This is a nice little extra for the 56kers that still want to get the full star wars experience without connecting to a server. But that’s not all! Macman ALSO provided us with some nice extra sounds. The small little touch of an “oh don’t you get technical with me,” or an “oh thank goodness I’m alright,” seems to be more than enough to add to the entertainment, and make it really feel like C3PO. Trust me guys, if you want a ‘3PO model, this is the one to get. Nice job, Macman! Team Skins: Yes! Bot Support: Yes! New Sounds: YES! ~Wassup1444465




Jedi's Home (JL) | 10.14 MB

because you're so excited that you actually made something and you want to share it with everyone. However, the best thing to do is just what the author of this map did - he created two maps before this one, but never released them. They were used to just learn how to map. Then he made Jedi's Home and it's just a wonderful map. It's hard to believe that it's a clan map, but it is. It is obviously inspired by Sevker's Jedi Archives, Griffinclaw's Jedi Council and there are some elements of ShroomDuck's maps here and there too. In my opinion, you can't get much better than combining those ideas, skills and talents. So as you can see from the first screenshot, Shadow Stone played around with a lot of curves. The lighting and textures in the main room are just perfect, in my opinion. The chandelier hanging sways gently and rotates. There's a less impressive meeting room down one hall, but will work for duels. A small dojo in another area serves its purpose, but isn't my favorite room. There's a large arena that has some interesting lighting and though you can't see it in my screenshots, has a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place thing that is reminiscent of Tournament Central in the TMBJ map. I love the bar. It's not a main part of the map, which is nice. You have to take an elevator up to the small, open bar which features some lovely lighting and three TV's hanging from the ceiling. The railing around the bar is wood and gives it a cabin-like feeling. Makes it very cozy. The bar is slippery - I'll let you guess where that concept came from. Outside you'll find a landing pad which is always good for FFAing, much like in Bespin Streets. The only parts of the map that make it clear that this is a clan map are the council rooms, secret areas and the living quarters. I have to say though, those are the most impressive beds I've seen yet. At the end of the room are three couches surrounding a large table. There are buttons on the sides of the couches, that when pressed will produce a large TV in front of each one. The meeting room with the large chairs looks great and also has that button thing going on. A small TV will slowly slide up in front of the leader's chair. And when another button is pressed, a map/chart thing will come up in the middle of the table for the benefit of the others around the table. One of my favorite areas has to be the hospital thingy. I remember people wanting to do the whole bacta thing the right way, and I'm not sure if anyone really was able to do it, but Shadow Stone sorta got it. Someone stands in the center of the um ... thingy ... and you press a button and down comes a tube and up comes water. After a few seconds, it drains and opens. There's a large council room upstairs that's just pretty. I really didn't find any of the secrets, but that's because I was busy exploring what wasn't secret. I kinda forgot to look. I was already so impressed by what I had seen. My FPS wasn't too bad, but it may suffer slightly on a server with a bunch of people. Still, it's worth it, I think, for those who like maps like Jedi Archives, GC's Jedi Council and the TMBJ map. I really can't wait to see your next map, Shadow Stone! Bot Support: No New Textures: Yes New Music: Yes Game Types: FFA, TFFA ~AmosMagee Ps. Shadow just fixed a little error and sent this to me. So I deleted the old version and put this one up. So if you downloaded the old one, be sure you grab this new one. :)




ForceMod III - Return of the Sith (Win Installer) | 39 MB

Academy. ForceMod III - Return of the Sith gives you the option of nearly 30 different classes. I can\'t even list all of the classes here, there are just too many. But as an example, as a Jedi Warden, you get a limited number of force powers, a lower saber attack level, but you get a Bryar. As an Aurorian, you get all light side force powers (up to level 4!) and level 4 attack and defense at max, but no other weapons other than your sabers. There are many other variations on these limitations which really seem to balance the mod/game. There are several new stances added - some specifically for single, dual or staff sabers. Some of the sabers are destructable as well. There are many new special moves added and a ton of other stuff including, but not limited to, cloaking, flame gauntlet, optic radar and a jetpack. There\'s just so much here, I really can\'t cover it all. Download this mod and check it out. I wouldn\'t be surprised if this starts popping up on a bunch of servers. :D ~AmosMagee




Bloody Dismemberment | 167.38 KB

dismemberment in SP because it was write protected (or was this just a case of using the command line?) Anyway this mod makes it so everyone is dismemberable, everyone spews out blood AND you get the gore sounds too. This is not for the faint of heart or for those who distain from blood in video games - some people love the realism, some people find it very bad...then they go off on a tangent of blaming kids behaviour on it...but anyway! Actually on that note, let me quote the readme as it makes a valid point -Its a game. In the immortal words of Bart Simpson: Don't have a cow, man! -If you have an argument against blood, don't download this file. Talk about in the forums, please don't jam up the comments with arguments. See that? "please don't jam up the comments with arguments"...we don't like that here anyway so head the readme! It actually works really well! The blood looks very much like blood does in most games where it's there by default, clear puddles on the floor with splashes around it and a spray when you first strike someone, it's definately one of the better blood mods out there. Even down to the spot on color and transparency, all nicely done. I have to say thanks to the added noises too; they really make it stand out! -WadeV1589- [file="81937"]Check here for a JK2 version of this mod![/file]




Darth Vader | 1.81 MB

Luke Skywalker and the character who made star wars so popular (in my opinion of course), Mars has captured Vader PERFECTLY in everyway from the shine on his helmet, the real-like textures on his cape and the metal parts on the suit, it all looks marvellously realistic. It was a treat to go into the game and run around in game with this fantastic model, it's a model that everyone would surely like, even if they don't use it they'll download it. The sounds are there, when you roll he does the whole machine-breathing thing, there are team colors, an unmasked version, which looks amazingly accurate, and even a white Vader version! This is a true treat for anyone who plays this game, Mars and Psyko have done an awesome job. Download this or I will have to use Level 3 Force-Poke-With-Stick on you. New Sounds: Yes Bot Support; Indeed Team Support: Yeah! -Rink[/quote] Darth Daddy's Back, version 2.2 include LOTS more stuff than version one. One of the very few complaints about version one was the eyes, although alot liked them a few didn't saying how they didn't match the real vader. In this version, there are multiple Vader skins you can choose from, the episode III suit, the original trilogy suit and the others like white, no mask, default (yeah with them cool eyes), red and blue (which have been improve greatly). As well as a few little bug fixes and NPC support (there's a few NPC's you can spawn), there is now 'troop' support. Explained in the readme, in singleplayer you can spawn stormtroopers and get them to follow you. HOW COOL IS THAT?. I don't think the model could get any better, 10/10. New Sounds: Yes Bot Support; Yes Team Support: Yes NPC Support: Yes Troop Support: Yes Everything Else: Yes -Rink




Sith Council | 12.66 MB

Sith Council map. It's not exactly like GCJC, but one look at the screenshots and you'll agree that it was heavily inspired by it. The main area does have columns, a long red carpet, a bar, and several rooms, including a dojo, for dueling in. One of my favorite areas has to be the Armory. I can't believe I haven't seen this concept used before. You press a button and get a weapon or ammo. It's perfect except for one thing - you can't tell what you're getting until you press the button. It would've been nice to have seen some clear labels over each button. There's an interrogation room with a one-sided mirror-like thing, where you press a button to allow the interrogator to escort the prisoner to the torture room. The torture room doesn't live up to my expectations, but it's decent anyway. There's a medical room and bedrooms. The bedrooms are great. They're quite dark when you first enter, but there's a lightswitch. HA! So yeah, turn on the light and you'll be able to find your way easily to the beds or desks. And yes, that screenshot there is of Kent Brockman. I just, had to include that. Who doesn't love The Simpsons? :D My only real complaint about this map is that the textures are so repetitive, so it is kinda boring to just look at. But it's a fun map to explore and lends itself well to RPing, just as GCJC did. I wouldn't be surprised if this does become a favorite map for JA players.

TGA to JPG Converter | 86.81 KB

can’t be used in Paint. While this is great and cool and fantastic, it needs to be realized that quite frankly, if you can’t convert files normally on your own, be it lack of a program or lack of skill, your skins probably won’t be accepted by the general public anyway. You can be a Maddox at paint, but that stuff just doesn’t come across well for skins. This is the sort of program that you might wind up using out of game, however. For instance, if you need to make a signature using an image from JK2, or JK3, or whatever game, you can use this if the file is in a .tga. So while this file doesn’t hold its direct purpose, it might still come in handy. ~Wassup1444465




Survival Mod 2: Revenge Of The Droids | 31.32 MB

2: Revenge of the Droids. I'll admit that I cheated while playing this and I still didn't get past like, the second room (when I played as Immy). The enemies just keep coming! You can play as four seperate characters and it looks like each one of them has a different map that you play through. I only tested Immy and the Clonetrooper. I don't know how long it took IZaNaGI to make this mod, but he put an incredible amount of work into this. Yes it's a large download. Stop whining and download it. If you enjoy single player stuff, then you're going to love this. If you don't cheat, then it is quite a challenge. I will probably play through this when I have more time. :) That's two great SP maps/mods that I've reviewed this week. :D ~AmosMagee




Jedi's Home (JL) II | 15.18 MB

really, after all considering what a smash hit the original Jedi’s Home was, it should have occurred to me that there was a good possibility for a v2. Oh well, I always seem to miss the obvious! Anywayyy…on with the review! Now, on the whole I liked the original map, it was roomy, good for clans, and had some great secrets. However there were a few things that bugged me quite a bit, one of which was the texturing in one or two areas, like that dark blue carpet in the main hall. It drove me mad trying to duel there, because I could never see my character, or my opponent properly. They just seemed to blend in with the dark carpet! Of course, when I lost because of that, I’m not sure anyone believed me when I said it was all the carpets fault. Surely other people had the same problem though? One of the main things a v2 should always accomplish is to correct the errors, or not so good bits of its predecessor. The worst case scenario is that a v2 would expand upon the not so good bits of its predecessor and get worse! I am happy to say that isn’t the case here. If you liked the original Jedi’s Home, your gonna be drooling over this one! :D Lets move onto the architecture first of all. This is really a map and a half, the architecture looks great all over. Wonderful smooth flowing lines, along with grand staircases and a lot of nice architectural detailing makes this an excellent map visually. It also feels a lot more solidly built than the original, but I guess a Jedi safe house needs to be though right? Some areas which I particularly liked was of course the wonderful main hall, with that great ceiling, but also the kind of modern-Japanese style dojo room thingies. At least that’s what they looked like to me! There is some nice architectural features and texturing in there, and the lights look pretty nifty too. ;) Now, that brings me onto the texturing, which is also very impressive. Quite a bit of the texturing in the main areas of the map is in relatively plain and simple textures, but nice looking ones nevertheless. Plain or simple textures are certainly not a bad thing if they are used properly however. In this map they are used very well I think, and personally I think they really bring out the wonderful architecture, whereas complicated, cluttered textures would draw your eye away from the architecture and more onto the texturing. There have also been some nice new shiny marble textures added to the map here and there, which i think looked rather posh! Best of all though (in my opinion at least) is that the carpet in the main area now looks much better, so hopefully I wont keep loosing my duels so much due to the colour of the carpet. I bet you still don’t believe me about that do you! :P Anyway… Just like the original, there is sooo much to explore on this map. The map itself is gigantic, and of course, theres plenty of secrets! One of the coolest bits I thought, was a transport ship that’s outside on a landing platform. Step on the boarding ramp undernieth and it brings you up into the bowls of the ship. However, if you move into the cockpit and press the controls, you can fire its laser cannons! Hopefully none of your friends will be standing infront of it…or maybe that was the idea? Mwahaha… Theres a totally revamped medical room, and also a cool duel room with a glass box that closes around the duelers (sorta like the one in Sith Council). As I said above, there is of course, plenty of secrets here. Theres hidden chambers, as well as come nifty floating dueling platforms in the sky, though I couldn’t figure out how to get there normally…I had to use noclip. Still, I imagine theres a teleporter somewhere for that. One secret that I thought was very cool was this security room that I found. It had a big screen on the wall where you could actually see one of the corridors in the map, and also when people walking through it. Just like a proper security camera! The only thing that I didn’t really like in the map was the fact that you had to press the use button on some of the doors to open them. Doing that just gets a bit irritating after a while, because I keep walking into doors expecting them to open! Owch… Besides that though I don’t remember noticing any substantial bugs, or any bugs at all for that matter! So, lets round up a few pro’s and con’s before we finish up. Pro’s: [*]An excellent map for clans. [*]Excellent looking architecture, you gotta love all those curves! [*]Solid and well-made brushwork. [*]Beautiful texturing and lighting. [*]Plenty of secrets to discover! Con’s: [*]It is very large, which can lead to you getting a bit lost if you don’t know the map well. [*]You have to press the use button on some of the doors to get them to open, which gets a little irritating after a while. This really is a superb map, which will be great for clans or RPG folk, or anyone who appreciates a well made and good looking map. An excellent map all round, be sure to give it a download!

Modeling/Skinning Guide and Tools | 17.86 MB

an introduction for JK3. Also included in the zip is modview. There are even some unpainted skins for some of the models. You can also find skeleton information for the modelers. :) Have at it, guys. :D ~AmosMagee




Darth Maul Sith Apprentice | 735.37 KB

there, so he modified one of the models to make it to his liking. He removed the teeth and ... okay, from a distance, it appears he added a tongue. LOL I don\'t know why, but the chin is a brighter red. *shrug* He also tweaked a few other things here and there. And as usual with this author, he left out bot support and team support. Rawr. Bot Support: No Team Colors: No New Sounds: Yes ~AmosMagee




Obi-Wan Kenobi | 7.35 MB

work of art - I find it hard to believe a modder could come up with better than Raven ever could - just look at what they turned Luke into - yet here's proof! Obi-Wan's face is spot on, and I mean right down to that little warty thing by his nose. I review loads of Star-Wars based models, but most of them are only recognisable by the clothes, because the face always seems... wrong. And this is why I love this model over all of those :D Sure, he looks in a slightly angry mood, but by my standards I'd pick this model over any other one currently out for JK3. Obi comes with full Bot, NPC and Team Support, and 4 different skins. My favourites are the classic robed versions, which come hoodless and non-hoodless, but the war-torn version of his normal clothes (minus the robe) and his standard outfit are also very impressive, and the textures have been modelled to a high standard. The hair, which is usually the worst part of a model, is also very close to the real thing, and I am absolutely positive every Obi-Wan fan will want to download this. Now, and some of you are gonna hate me for this - there are a few small problems, but let me stress that whilst they are small, they still should be fixed. Firstly the single-player selection doesn't work - it comes up with a model not found error and I end up as a stormtrooper. It still works through the console, but I was kinda looking forward to seeing Obi in the cutscenes. I don't think it's a problem on my end, but it could be. Secondly, while most of the sounds are fitting, some have music in the background, which sounds wierd to me. Still, it's not like I ever use taunts ingame. ;) Also included in the file is Kenobi's saber from Episode 3. I have never looked closely at his saber so I can't vouch for its realism, but it does look very good. It is also in a seperate pk3 from the SP model and the normal MP model so you can remove it if you wish. I have no doubt this will be a highly-downloaded model, and I am also sure it will keep all the Anakin fans appeased untill HapSlash releases his episode 3 model :) New Sounds: Yes Team Support: Yes Bot Support: Yes NPC Support: Yes ~Szico VII~




JA+ Mod 2.3 | 24.97 MB

name a few ... with the JA+ mod you can have multiple duels at once, even full force duels, and all of those duels can be isolated so there's no duel interference, there's clan tag protection, option of having multiple taunts, lots of new emotes, a profanity filter, model size scaling system, new items including a grapple hook (perfect if you've just downloaded the new Spiderman skin) and a ton of other features. The newest features for the mod include a Mac patch so that Mac users (are there any out there? If so, freakin' email me ... I have a map I need you to test) can start a JA+ server, a JA+ server tracker, the clan tag protection I already mentioned, and Slider improved some of the already present features. This is an incredible mod that I would definitely be using because it's so configurable if I still ran a JA mod. Great work here. But I wonder, will it ever be done? ;) ~AmosMagee[/quote] It seems to be spread on almost every server this mod. Whats so special about this version? Well I'm not going to list everything, since it would take years of scrolling, but these are a few of them: [b]New Player Animations:[/b] There are hundreds of interesting things here, you can now catch and hang onto ledges, to avoid falling. An extremely good thing for the movie makers out there. The new moves are cool, melee and saber moves. Holstering your saber, when you switch to melee your saber goes to your belt, and if it's a sword it'll go in a holster on your back. It makes the game feel much more 'Jedi-Like'. Excellent for all you Role Players out there. Amkiss, some people hate getting kissed by amkiss spammers, so there's an option to slap them by pressing the push key. [b]JA+ Sabers:[/b] There are a wide range of high quality saber models included with the mod, including the recent File of the week, Dragon's Wing v2, by hatrus. [b]JK2-like moves:[/b] There is an option that you can enable, that makes the moves and physics more like JK2, (Red DFA for example) [b]Gender Support for missing skins:[/b] What this is, is if you dont have a female skin, you will see someone who is wearing that skin as Jan, not Kyle [b]Dimensions[/b] This is somthing that might bring the FFA players and the Honor players together. In JA+ 2.3, there are 'dimensions', you type /amaltdim and you go to an alternate dimension (a no rules one) where there's no grapple hook, and you cant use admin commands on someone (except /amkick) there's no god-chat either there. This is an amazing feature which I'm sure will improve JA+'s status with FFA players. [b]Ampunish and Amslay removed[/b] Two commands that can be abused to hell have been removed [b]Bug Fixes[/b] A large number of bug fixes from the previous version are all here, check out the readme and stuff to see the list. That's just some of it, there's quite a bit here. Everything else is still there too, besides ampunish and amslay. Update your servers and enjoy the new features. -Rink [b]If you just want the client plugin go[/b] [url=;41256]here[/url]




JAM's JK2/3 Kill Tracker | 1.59 MB

tracking (obviously) 2. Spam-echoer 3. JK2 and JA support 4. Note and friend lists 5. Message configurator with a command variable help, color scheme help, and a preview window 6. Media player with playlist capabilities 7. Update check (click JAM in the main browser) and contact information Having been around since the first days of JK2, I've seen all the kill trackers and never been impressed. Whenever someone joined one of the clan servers I played on and I saw that exacerbating kill tracker message, I repeatedly used my "kill tracker off" bind or spammed the same message in the console. To me, "!kt off" was the only good thing about them. JAM's version may have changed my mind about that. While I still don't see the need to publicly track your statistics, the auto-message feature and music options are definitely an evlolution from the early versions. I realize that those options have been available for a while, but as a graphic designer, the ease of use, graphics, and media player feel make JAM's version my choice. The readme for this program is located by default at: "C:/Program Files/JAM's Jedi Knight KT/readme.txt" once it is installed. Technical Data: Pros: 1. Very easy to use. 2. Gorgeous layout. Cons: 1. NA Rating: 10/10[/quote] A few usful things have been added in v2 and a few fixes too. The interface looks much more slick now, I felt the first version looks a bit big and clunky. The black colour has been added to color schemes now, thats great since alot of people use black in their names. Good job JAM, this is a great tool for recording your kills, playing music, adding friend lists and more. Once again this version works for both JK2 and JKA, update it now! -Rink




JEDI Costumization PLUS | 49.25 MB

skins. There are at least 49 new styles of heads, and 3 to 4 different versions of the same style, so there is at least 147 new heads for the Anakin model in this pack. There are at least 21 different torso styles, with about 3 versions per style (robed, unrobed, or hooded), and at least 21 new legs to match. Altogether, there are over 125000, unless my math is off, and I am fairly certain that it isn't. (129024 according to the readme... :p) Needless to say, this is split up into a lot of different species in the SP customization menu. There is far too much to have all in one menu. But it is split up and put together in a way that allows you to choose the combination that you want to have. Now onto the skins themselves... Each one is of very high quality, like the Aviar Lord skins were (Acutally, the Aviar Lord skins are included in this too :p), and the heads are pretty much all original. The clothes, though, aren't quite as original as the heads. But that is not the author's fault. There is only so much you can do with the clothes on the Anakin model, and I think that almost everything that can be realistically done to them has been done. I'd go more in depth about what they all look like if it weren't for the fact that it would pretty much be impossible to do so, so I will instead leave it up to the screenshots to tell you. I honestly couldn't find very much to complain about for this pack with one exception: This caused some problems with the default JA stuff. I popped it into my base folder and went to play SP a bit, and found that stormtroopers no longer spawned. Of course, that could be because I have so much other crap in my base folder as well. And, that shouldn't bug too many of you, since not many seem to play SP much these days, and I found no problems in MP. Anyway, this is a huge file, but I found every single byte of it to be worth it. I highly recommend this pack for people to download.

JA+ Mod v2.2 | 6.11 MB

the same zip file making it far easier to post them and distribute! 1.8 see's several improvements, a lot of them bug fixes, stuff like emotes being buggy. Speaking from a mapping perspective though I do have a problem with emotes, in my latest map I made a dialing Stargate and fans will know the wormhole blast kills you if you go near it...if a person uses an emote they can be in front of the gate as it activates and they'll be just fine...I think this mod would benefit from a mapper being able to work around emote's being a protection. The previous review(s) anyhow: Quote: -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Okay, a cascading quoting thing of reviews... or something: Quote: -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- My review of the last version of this mod: Quote: -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I happen to know for a fact that JA+ is a very popular mod and it continues to grow in popularity. I'm just going to go over a few features that were added to this version. Clan Speak: How cool is this? There's a clan password that you set and now clans can chat privately via the console. It's like the /amsay feature, but you don't have to be an admin to chat here. New Emotes: There are a few new emotes included like amdie, amkneel and amfinishinghim. Toggle Amthrow: Now admins can control which players can amthrow you. New Admin Commands: Included are amrename, amlockteam and amforceteam. Very helpful commands. Also, there is a little issue when your server.cfg has too many sets - apparently, this mod corrects that. All of this is new just for the 1.5 version. The 1.4 version has a lot more too. So take a look at the readme to find out all about what the author included. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Slider is quick with his updates to his JA+ mod. Version 1.6 includes the ability to scale your model, there's are new DFA's, you can allow or disallow the use of black names, several new emotes, and all of the old ones have been recoded. There are a ton of fixes and even more added features. In fact, just read the readme. There's too much to list. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Slider once again updates his very popular JA+ mod. There was apparently a nasty little bug that would crash servers with the use of force push or pull. No idea what that was all about - but glad it's fixed! Very interesting little thing added to help control a server. Now players can vote whether to sleep another player or not. Of course, this could be abused just like when you enable voting to kick another player. But it still might be useful on servers where there are some honorable regulars without admins present. Along with that new vote type, you can also, as the server admin decide which vote types you want to allow the server. Maybe you don't mind the players choosing the map they want to play on, but you don't want them voting to kick anyone. That's a great feature, Slider. And yay! Ampoll was added! This would be perfect for my CTF games. Often I just use ampsay to take a vote. There's a ton of stuff here, so read through the readme for all of the features that Slider included in 1.7. It seems that his mod keeps getting better and better. I wonder what he'll have for 1.8? Or maybe this is the final version? Nah ... mods like this are never really finished. ~AmosMagee -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Go those build up of quotes!...and I say JA+ V on the site so it's not over yet -WadeV1589- -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Okay so this is the Windows/Linux server side version of the new JA+ Mod same as usual there are bug fixes including animations. Also there are two new force moves! One called Sith Kiss which is the same as drain. I do believe that this is the SP face grip thingie, didn't look at this part too much myself. There is also a jedi only skill called force whirlwind which is used in close range to knock an enemy back. Static emotes are working again now, so you can't run around while sitting, new anti vote spam and anti macro spam and a load of other stuff which is included in the readme.[/quote] It would be impossible for me to list and describe every feature in this mod - simply because I don't have that much time on my hands. ;) So to just name a few ... with the JA+ mod you can have multiple duels at once, even full force duels, and all of those duels can be isolated so there's no duel interference, there's clan tag protection, option of having multiple taunts, lots of new emotes, a profanity filter, model size scaling system, new items including a grapple hook (perfect if you've just downloaded the new Spiderman skin) and a ton of other features. The newest features for the mod include a Mac patch so that Mac users (are there any out there? If so, freakin' email me ... I have a map I need you to test) can start a JA+ server, a JA+ server tracker, the clan tag protection I already mentioned, and Slider improved some of the already present features. This is an incredible mod that I would definitely be using because it's so configurable if I still ran a JA mod. Great work here. But I wonder, will it ever be done? ;) ~AmosMagee




Star Wars Episode III JKA Map Pack - Part 1 | 54.04 MB

reading this review, downloading this map pack, then you saw Episode III. If not, don\'t read my review - there may be a spoiler or two. Okay, so I spawned in that one big room near the elevators. I immediately crawled down the broken one and explored the shaft. I don\'t think you can tell from the screenshots there, but there seemed to be water I was walking in here and there. Oh, and these screenshots are a bit out of order. See R2 down there in the water? I didn\'t mean for him to fall down there... I just love breaking grates. :D And that damn droid kept saying something every once in a while. Startled me every time and I expected them to spawn and start shooting at me and R2. Of course, R2 would\'ve kicked their asses. As you can see from the last screenshot there, I wouldn\'t have been much help to R2 since I decided to go and press buttons and got launched out into space. My FPS was decent on The Invisible Hand and I wouldn\'t be surprised if this map becomes as popular as the Duel of the Fates map - especially with that space-sucker-outer button. ;) And now Palpatine\'s Office - no, wait, that\'s a screenshot of Sith-J-Cull\'s office - or is it George Lucas\'? Bah. Maybe George and James share an office? ;) Well, I have no idea how to legitimately get to this room, I cheated and noclipped. :P But definitely check it out, it\'s amusing. :) The design and lighting of this map are great and accurate, though my poor screenshots don\'t justify the map. I\'m not quite sure why the chairs in the office can be pushed and pulled, but they can be. And the glass OF COURSE can be broken - how else could you reenact the scene where Windu gets - okay, I\'ll stop there. :) After testing these two maps, I\'m tempted to go back and find your first map ever submitted, James ... just so I can see if there was ever any improvement to be made. It seems to me you\'ve always been a great mapper and always will be. By the way, there are two screenshots of James\' upcoming work included in the zip file. So be sure to download part 1 of this map pack! Bot Support: Yes New Textures: Yes New Music: Yes Game Types: FFA, Duel ~AmosMagee




Siege Destroyer Map

jasiegedestroyer.exe | 5.67 MB

thank you to the community for making JA such a popular game - they\'re presenting us with a new Siege map! So in Siege Destroyer, it seems that the Imperials have captured the Millennium Falcon! *gasp* They want what\'s in the ship and will stop at nothing to get it. So if you\'re a Rebel, it\'s your job to destroy their defenses and release the Millennium Falcon. If you\'re playing for the Imperials, you need to blow up the Rebels and keep them from getting back their precious ship. The Imperials will be using TIE Fighters, TIE Bombers and turbolaser defenses on the surface of the Star Destroyer to keep the Rebels at bay. If you\'re fighting for the forces of good, you\'ll have X-Wing Starfighters and Z-95 Headhunters. The music included is from episode V and should be familiar to you. :) I had a lot of fun playing this map, even though I still suck at flying. I managed to destroy a few things here and there. :D So finally, we have another Siege map to add to the list. Hopefully we\'ll see more being created by the mappers out there. :) Bot Support: N/A New Textures: Yes New Music: Yes Game Types: Siege ~AmosMagee




Kamino | 16.63 MB

Wars map. The skybox outside is lovely (though could be improved upon and probably will be for version 2), there's rain and fog and mist, the lighting is beautiful, and that's just like, from where I spawned. Now, keep in mind, this is a HUGE map. It took almost a full minute for the map to load for me. So don't freak out and think the game has frozen or anything. Just be patient. :) There are some windows looking out into the sea and the water is just drenching the glass ... it looks great. The hallways are bright and sterile looking. Lots of great details can be found in small rooms here and there. There are some great doors and ... goodness, there's just so much here. That one room with the white spoon chairs - totally freaked me out. LOL This really is an incredible map, James. And I know a lot of you have been looking forward to this map's release. :) There are a few errors I found here and there. The elevator/lift doesn't work as well as it could, there's some z-fighting in two areas that I found (can you spot it? ;)) but there is a version 2 coming. This is definitely a map for RPing. And if you aren't into that, then like, try a game of Hide 'n Seek on this map. It's big enough. :P Bot Support: Yes New Textures: Yes New Music: Yes Game Types: FFA ~AmosMagee




MauDae\'s JK3 Killtracker | 181.59 KB

didn\'t like it too much, it says you need to get an additional software called Microsoft\'s .NET Framework 1.1, which is just an additional program of junk on your system and my system is running out of room :O. One nice thing sort of is the built in winamp player although I still prefer a normal winamp because it replies to the KT quicker. He didn\'t add too much from the last one, which isn\'t too bad. Now if you go to the JK3files server you already know that you can\'t use KTs so there is something that won\'t be good if you get this. He changed some commands, and some of them he just changed their name. I only think this is good if you want to track your kills like it was made to do, I wouldn’t use it for the music part just get the Winamp Controller. MauDae I personally think the KT would be much better without the Framework and make it like the old KT. In the end the KT isn’t too amazing compared to his last ones because they are all pretty much the same. I like the new design though although it looks big, I still like it. I really wished we didn’t need that Framework software, but oh well he must have put it in there for a good reason. One thing that was good is that like all his Kill Trackers, it keeps track of your kills isn’t that amazing! Of course it keeps track of your duels too and unfortunately your deaths :(. So if you really want a KT that will last you then get this one till the next update comes out. Good Job MauDae, but I wish that Framework wasn’t there :-/. -XgamerX




Vengeance of the Sith | 62.76 MB

hold your attention, though the dialogue can get boring at times. The action is there, but you have plenty of help from Kyle and other Jedi along the way. A lot happens in such a short period of time, so the story and the action is always moving. I ran into an issue at one point where two of the enemies I was supposed to kill ... they weren\'t dying ... but they weren\'t fighting either. They just ... stopped. So I just reloaded at the last checkpoint and tried again and it all worked just fine. The only things I would change about this mod are the writing of the dialogue and I would add some voice acting. Also, there were a few grammatical errors in the subtitles, but I can overlook that. :) If you\'re looking for something new to try for single player Jedi Academy, check this out. Like I said, I haven\'t played through to the end yet, but this is staying on my computer until I do. :) ~AmosMagee




JAM's JK2/3 Kill Tracker (v1.0) | 3.05 MB

(obviously) 2. Spam-echoer 3. JK2 and JA support 4. Note and friend lists 5. Message configurator with a command variable help, color scheme help, and a preview window 6. Media player with playlist capabilities 7. Update check (click JAM in the main browser) and contact information Having been around since the first days of JK2, I've seen all the kill trackers and never been impressed. Whenever someone joined one of the clan servers I played on and I saw that exacerbating kill tracker message, I repeatedly used my "kill tracker off" bind or spammed the same message in the console. To me, "!kt off" was the only good thing about them. JAM's version may have changed my mind about that. While I still don't see the need to publicly track your statistics, the auto-message feature and music options are definitely an evlolution from the early versions. I realize that those options have been available for a while, but as a graphic designer, the ease of use, graphics, and media player feel make JAM's version my choice. The readme for this program is located by default at: "C:/Program Files/JAM's Jedi Knight KT/readme.txt" once it is installed. Technical Data: Pros: 1. Very easy to use. 2. Gorgeous layout. Cons: 1. NA Rating: 10/10[/quote] While this is technically version 1.0, there's only been one change made. The author found a pretty nasty bug and quickly corrected it, but the bugged version was already posted. Anyway, here's the fixed version with nothing added. So read the above review to learn more about this Kill Tracker. :) ~AmosMagee




KOTOR Flight School | 10.21 MB

to stay grounded. (Like me ... I should stay out of the air ... notice the last screenshot there ... yeah.) Throughout the space nearby are many rocks, or asteroids for your target practice pleasure. ;) Perhaps you just want to swing your saber a bit? No problem - plenty of room for that too. I can\'t tell whether the vehicles included in this map respawn or not, I didn\'t stay alive long enough to find out. LOL Also, I\'m sure there are other elements that I can\'t comment on simply because I tested the map alone, not with others who would be attempting to blow me up. :D What I can say is: this map has HUGE potential. I had fun flying around on my own, shooting at, well, everything ... hehe ... and just testing out the different ships kept me busy for a while. I wonder what this would be like with bot support? Hmmm. As I hinted above, there is no bot support, but that\'s almost a non-issue here. :) This is definitely intended for multiplayer servers, not to play alone. There are new textures and sound effects and music. Okay, a comment on the music here - AAHH! That is all. I didn\'t really comment on the textures and whether I liked the map itself. There was just too much to play with for me to notice the look of the map. LOL Honestly, though, it\'s not something I\'d even come close to calling eye candy, but it\'s not an eye sore either. It doesn\'t need to look good to be fun. :) Overall, this is a great idea. It isn\'t simply a map, it\'s a mod and a map ... sorta. Okay, it\'s a map, but like, so much more. :D Great job and I can\'t wait to see the updates! Bot Support: No New Textures: Yes New Music/Sounds: Yes Game Types: FFA, TFFA, CTF, Duel ~AmosMagee

vehicles allowed in jedi academy,the vehicles do add the extra fun to the map. The map is basicly made out of a few buildings that function as different bases,it is a big grasslandscape with trees and rocks, not much has changed since the last version, except that there is an inside area added under one of the buildings and the Trade Federation Droid Lander has been improved. also the CTF spawn points are fixed and a few other little adjustments have been made.

HS Anakin Skywalker | 10.62 MB

[b]three[/b] - amazing soundsets. If you thought the Anakin soundsets out there already were good, have a listen to these. With a minimal amount of background noise and music, these sounds will really make you feel like you [b]are[/b] Anakin Skywalker, rather than just watching him. The soundsets include an Episode 2 soundset, a neutral Episode 3 soundset, and a more Sith-like Episode 3 soundset. Of course Anakin must match his voice, so several clothing variations have been included: Episode 2 \'fro hair, normal Episode 3 duds, hooded and unhooded robes, and a battle-worn version. You\'ve all seen the WIP images that have been spread around the various community forums, and the model certainly lives up to the images. With an accurate mesh, beautiful texturing, and Infinity Blade\'s characteristically (near) perfect weighting, there\'s very little you could find to complain about. HapSlash has even gone so far as to include three head meshes: an Episode 2 head, and two Episode 3 heads with slightly differently shaped hair. Since we\'ve been waiting for, oh, about a year for this model, you\'d expect it would come with all the extras. And indeed it does. Some very tasteful team support, various NPC options, and of course a bot to play with. It also comes with single-player support (and the mouth is fully rigged for those who actually want to use it in single-player!). This way you can easily access the outfit you want to see! What more could you want? How about some spiffy shaders to complete the feel? You\'ve got it. The best Anakin model out, by a landslide. Download now... as if I had to tell you!

Star Wars Episode III JKA Map Pack - Part 3 | 119.12 MB

one can say that they haven’t been waiting for at least one of these maps! The one I was most looking forward to was the Senate ;) Well, this is going to be an insanely long review lol, so I will give each map its own little (or not so little) section. Kashyyyk Battle: First lets start with Kashyyyk. Now, having bought the Ep3 DVD yesterday (October 31st mwahaha we in Britain get it a day before the Americans! Makes a change to get something first for once lol…anywayyy…) Probably one of my favourite battle scenes (of which there were many) was the Kashyyyk one. Giant furry people against robots? Who wouldn’t like to see such a match up ;) This map is truly MASSIVE, among some of the ace things included are many vehicles made by various other authors. Including the Hailfire Droid and the Clone Gunship. Now, I know how annoying it can be to try and fly around in a map that’s too small, and you keep banging into the skybox and blowing up…but thankfully this map has easily enough room for a dogfight in the sky ;) This would, I imagine, be a great map for gunbattles and TFFA’s because of all the vehicles and the massive amount of room. Not to mention all the walkways pads and cool features like barricades on the ground. Graphically this map is superb, there’s a little Republic Star Destroyer moving in the sky, also there is a bird that is actually flying round! That’s not the best bit though, what was really great was the fact that there were multiple rooms in the giant trees that you could actually go inside, and not only that the leaves on the trees, actually sway, so it looks like there is a slight breeze blowing! The water even looks like its lapping against the shore! Sometimes it’s the little things like that which really make a map more alive graphically. All in all a really good map here, if you like exploring or like having a battle, you will love this! Also this map reminds me of Naboo Hills By Darth Zappa, because of the vast amount of space and all the vehicles, so if you liked that map, you will love this! The Senate: Well this is the map that I most wanted to see in this pack :) Its probably a bit smaller than I expected, but like he said in the readme, it needed to be made smaller for obvious reasons! Kashyyyk was best in my opinion as a battle map, this however is probably better as a dueling map. That’s because there are lots of platforms and tricky areas to jump around, which is great whilst you are dueling! Its also good for exploring, as with all of Sith J’s maps there’s always plenty of places to explore! There’s even the little tunnel included that Yoda crawls through to escape at the end of the film. That’s not it though, this map contains a couple of extremely cool features, which I’m sure you will want to play around with…. One being a small control panel at the bottom of the senate area. If you press and hold the use button on it (similar to what you do when you are trying to hack the control panels on Hoth Siege), when the timer bar goes all the way down to the bottom, the entire map will change from being all perfect, to after Yoda and Palpatine have finished dueling, with Senate pods crashed all over the place and plenty of smoke! Another super cool feature is the Iris type thingy that opens to allow Palpatines Platform to rise up into the middle of the Senate arena. That must have been a difficult thing to make! If you have the Yoda and Palpatine models this would be a great place to re-enact their battle ;) There were only a couple of small things that bugged me here (a perfect map is impossible to get!) One would be that the Senate area itself is a bit small, but like he says in the readme, it would have been almost impossible to make it at its full size! The other would be the ordinary senate pods they are quite low detail compared to the better looking ones that are floating around, but again, if you made them too detailed it would drag the fps right down because there are so many of them. Nevertheless the overall look is very realistic, and as always this map is great fun to explore! This map is the one I was really looking forward to in this pack, and I can certainly say that it doesn’t disappoint! Now onto the last and smallest map in this pack, Vaders Reconstruction Chamber, where he dons that famous black suit! (mind you he’s pretty much crippled then so its probably actually the medical droids that don it for him, but that doesn’t sound as good…ehm anyway) Vaders Reconstruction Chamber: This map, according to the readme, is a teaser for a bigger map that will come later on. But its still brilliant! This map doesn’t appear to have bot support (although I’m sure the finished version will), but its too small to be played properly with bots anyway. This thing that really got me in this map is the atmosphere created, it is really just like what you see in the film, dark, heavy and gloomy. Its really got that evil atmosphere. Graphically it is also very good, there’s plenty of detailing to look at. What’s best of all though, is the bed that Vader is reconstructed on, press one of the 2 control panels near the entrance and the bed raises and lowers! This is another great map, and I look forward to seeing the full size version! Another excellent mappack here from Sith J, and as usual I found virtually no bugs, or things that I didn’t like, because his maps are such high quality!

JAM's JK2/JK3 Kill Tracker | 2.44 MB

3. Custom chat messages (This is not the kill message, this is something different) 4. A calculator. 5. A server tracker. 6. Custom Identities 7. Long name support. 8. Custom duel music (plays when you enter a duel) 9. Chat logging 10. Multiple playlists. 11. And some more. Having the tracker in your system tray is certainly nice, but I don't think it's needed. But, it does look cool. I did like the multi-language support, which means I can play with my game in french, although it doesn't auto detect what language you are using, so you have to manually set what language you're going to use in options. The custom chat messages are a nice addition, although you navigate through the messages with the keypad keys - , + , and *. I wish that the keys used to navigate were changeable, as I have screenshotting binds there. And, now, the calculator. I find this a random addition, so I made sure to find some bugs in it. While it does support several advanced commands such as sine, cosine, and tangent, as well as absolute values, rounding, and logarithms, it wasn't that great. First off, I use a calculator a lot, so I generally expect it to well. So, I tested if this did distrobution. It does, but you have to format your equation like so: a*(b+c). I prefer to format my equations a(b+c). It doesn't support that. Also, the sine, cosine, and tangent functions are only calculated in radians, and most people aren't intimately familiar with radians. More people are familiar with degrees. Another thing that could be worked on. And yet another thing, if you use the sine, cosine, or tangent functions, you have to format it like so: calc: sin(X) where X is a number. You cannot format it just as: calc: sin(X. It gives you an error. It doesn't even have an answer function, which just means that you can do ''ans'' and get your answer. (So it basically saves your answer, a useful thing when doing long calculations.) So the calculator was a medium disappointment to me, but it's perfect for the people that need to do simple math functions. Server tracker! Yay! I like this function mainly because when I use Xfire sometimes I crash out after joining a game. So this is a very nice touch. It will give you the server name, the number of players, and all the basic server info. Next up is Identities. A very nice touch, but I prefer configs. So I'll just stick to good old /writeconfig. Although, the /writeconfig trick doesn't work if you go to a different server that uses a different mod, so this option is nice as it's not mod dependant. It saves your name, binds, and model and is easily retreivable. Long name support. Certainly a nice thing for all of you people who like long and colorful names. Custom duel music. Not a bad idea, and I'm sure a lot of people will use it. But my music likes change, so I'll just pick a song that I like and play it at the start of each duel. Chat logging! Yay! Although I already have my game log my console already, this is great for those who don't know how to make their game log stuff, and want records of their games. Now, multiple playlists. Finally! Save that playlist! No longer will you have reload all of your music multiple times. Just load a playlist. Just make sure to click ''Create New Playlist" when you first load up, otherwise you won't get a playlist saved. It also has an auto name change feature! Yay! You can spend less time doing the whole /name thing! Also, there are several small functions that I haven't covered, but you'll hopefully find them Yay, now for some bugs that haven't been fixed. People can still spoof your name, although I'm not going to tell you how to do it. Secondly is a media player bug. First, let's replicate the bug. First, your play mode should be in shuffle, then, press the next or previous key a bunch of times. I get an error. It's specifically Run-time error '35600' Index Out of Bounds. But you shouldn't be affected by this bug unless you go insane with changing songs. It still has all of the regular features, including friends, statistics tracking, notes, kill messages, music playing with ID3 tag support, and a lot more. And, it still works for both Jedi Academy and Jedi Outcast! Despite some small bugs, this is great! I know a majority of people use this kill tracker, so download this! ~Zach[/quote] Nothing's changed from the previous review, so, I'm not re-reviewing it. I'm just tacking on a note about what's changed. [i]The following bugs have now been fixed:[/i] [b]#[/b] [i]Change Playlist cancel error[/i] [b]#[/b] [i]Prev/Next Index out-of-bounds error[/i] If those bugs are annoying you, here's your solution. ~ Kouen




Star Wars Episode III JKA Map Pack - Part 2 | 82.43 MB

thats the harshness when everybody expects perfect maps from you SJC :) I've seen Episode III, and the similarity between the movie and the Mustafar map here is very good. Sure, it's not perfect, but in order to have a playable map which is fun, nobody mines a few small alterations. I'll start with the small errors I found, to get them out of the way. Firstly, when walking down the edge of the lava river leading to that giant waterfall, the lava doesn't always follow the path of the rocks... sometimes there's a hole between the rock and the lava flow, so you can see UNDER the lava... check the third screenshot. The textures when lava paths meet also look a little wierd but unfortunately with the q3 engine its near impossible to get that effect working perfectly. Oh, there's also quite a lot of shader errors in the console, but they won't affect gameplay. The FPS held pretty okay for most of the map, dropped maybe a little low in some bits but it's nothing to worry about, and the map is a lot bigger than I first thought, as there's a whole other area when you go through the connecting tunnels. After looking around I found Obi's ship, along with a shuttle and another ship whom I wasn't sure belonged to. The structures around the rockfaces and the rocks themselves are very well made, incredibly detailed, although might I suggest a different texture for where the lava meets the rocks? Kinda looks like scratched metal in a red colour from up-close. But I'm nit-picking here. Overall this is a brilliant map which I advise you all go and try out - on your own (there's bot support), but even better with others. Ah.. I haven't loved Force Push and Grip quite so much since Nar Shadda streets for JK2 :D Incidentally, there's quite a few interactive features here too, moving platforms across the lava, flying probes e.t.c. There's also traps here and there so you can retract walkways dropping people into the lava. Looks a bit odd when the walkway just disappears, but what the heck. I imagine with a large FFA this would be a very cool map, and perhaps whilst big for a one-on-one duel, you'll all be able to recreate that fantastic final duel of Episode III. Now onto Utapau. Don't get me wrong, it's a fantastic map - it just seemed a little bare from what I saw, especially that rocky area outside. (A few texture misalignment problems) I noclipped around and you might want to caulk a little more around the backs of the rocks to improve FPS for those with low-end PC's (I had no problems, just a small suggestion) And what are those grey smudge things at the bottom of the hole lol? The plafroms and sticking-out areas were great for the most part, however I wish there weren't quite so many locked doors. The readme states both maps have some improvements to be done, so I assume these WILL lead somewhere eventually. Incidentally, the doors in this map could use a soundset too, it's a bit odd when they don't make a noise. Again, there's full bot support, but very few bugs I found when compared to Mustafar - not that Mustafar is bug-ridden lol ;) It's just this in map there was less to go wrong I guess. My favourite section had to be the big sperical building jutting out from the rock-face. So cool... Anyway, Download it and take a look! It's very large (lots of textures, including some from his stargate map for some reason - might lead to conflicts in the future), so some of you may have to leave your PC on all night, but don't worry, it's worth it :D New Textures: Yes New Sounds: Yes Bot Support: Yes ~Szico VII~




Country Academy (JA) | 9.59 MB

is James Culley - you guys might know him as Sith-J-Cull, a prolific JA mapper. Thanks for the review, James! :) ~Amy ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- First of all, I would like to thank Amos for giving me the chance and the honour to review this ShroomDuck exclusive – yes, that’s right, EXCLUSIVE - and what a map … so imaginative, with such a lot to do. Description: Well as the name states this is a country theme based map, essentially a country fair with stalls and games for you to enjoy, with countryside farmyard surroundings, animals, blue skies and lake complete with rickety bridge! (Sounds like a holiday brochure!) The idea behind this map is to have fun - there is so much to do. Basically you have a farmyard with some booths which give you access to the various games on the map: Get Lost a very mad maze Flying pig who can stay on the flying pig? Well an interesting bottomless pit for your falling pleasure! Square Dance a game of death using crushers The square dance is my favourite game which should be really fun with a load of players – unfortunately I was testing this map out alone so I couldn’t actually have the satisfaction of killing anyone. The map has its own public transport provided by the native chicken - yeah that’s right, Shroom brings us the Chickenvator J, trust me where ever you see chickens; fun is sure to follow, make sure you jump on every chicken in your sight, as most serve as a means of transport to and from the different areas the map (oh yes and look out for the Turtle!) Textures / Lighting: 7/10 Country Academy uses almost all custom textures to pull off the country fair farmyard theme and it does so very well, the signs are amazing and the theme stays consistent throughout the map, there are lots of wooden textures of differing colours all of which are well done, there were a few completely black buttons here and there which I don’t know were intentional, if so maybe they could be sorted. The landscape was kept simplistic I think to keep the brush count low for frame rate reasons – as I know many people now use Easygen for landscapes which gives you more control over texturing. The hills that surround the map if I’m not wrong are made from huge brushes which have been clipped into slopes, the texture applied when viewing a large area of it do seem repetitive, although I know there isn’t a lot that can be done about that as stretching them too far looks ugly, so I think the way it was done here gives the right feel for the map :) The lighting again Is simplistic but it doesn’t need to anything else – the farmyard is such eye candy I do feel that it could look even better with a touch of ambient coloured light, ambient light would have helped reduce the completely black :( areas in the Maze area for example. Architecture: 7/10 This was the aspect of the map where I was both amazed and sometimes left wanting more. The whole feel and look of the map is generally brilliant, although the architecture goes from “wow that’s very cool” to “hmm that could look better” but then I am a mapper and I know Shroom would have thought the same about any of mine maps, I think that generally mappers go around playing maps and spend too much time looking at the technical aspects rather than having some fun playing – although I DID have a lot of fun playing this. Some highlights were the Barn and the Windmill very cool J and I enjoyed the various technical aspects used to create the fun things in the map, things like func_trains, triggers and teleporters, crushers and jump pads! The map seems to be full of simple shaped brushes that in part are simple, but when they come together they form something that’s more than the sum of its parts. Game play / Level flow: 9/10 Well I don’t think anyone will be taking this map as a serious gunfight and that’s because there are no weapons on the map – The idea of this it to HAVE FUN and fun you will. The level is laid out well with the farmyard being the main area that connects all of the other areas together – for example the stalls can all be found here and each stall leads you the games, although getting back from each area normally requires getting on a chicken which gradually lifts you up like a lift into a teleporter that zaps you back to the main area again, this may be a problem with a lot of players as there may be arguments when it comes to getting on and off the chicken now ya’ll behave you hear! There are plenty of areas perfect for duelling which I am sure will please a lot of you, and there are also lots of things In the map that I probably didn’t mention in this review – but you will find them as you explore this world that is Country Academy (by the way make sure you use the outside toilet)! Music hmm/hmm Ok it was good the first time round The second time round it wasn’t bad The third time round I turned down my music volume! Fun Factor: 20/10 Fun, Fun, Fun :) Well I hope this review gives you guys the right message which I think is basically this: DOWNLOAD THIS NOW because ShroomChicken has provided us with hours of fun!

Count Dooku | 3.79 MB

every way... Count Dooku\'s cape isn\'t stiff like on other models, his cape flows nicely, I\'m sure alot of you are glad to hear that :P. There are several skins included with the model, there is the default which is Dooku\'s Episode III robes, an Attack of the Clones version, which is his clothes from Episode II, the team skins and an imperial version (you need to download Hapslash\'s \"Improved Imperial Officer\" to see it) What I really like about the model is the attention to detail, it looks exactly like Christopher Lee, who plays Dooku in the films and there is nearly no clipping what so ever. Not only do you get this awesome model, Hapslash has also included Dooku\'s Lightsaber hilt, and an optional overwrite hilt. There\'s an NPC there, and new sounds. Most of the sounds are from Episode III, and I think they were great choices they fit well into combat. Pretty much the best model to come to JKA so far in my opinion, and I think I speak on behalf of the whole community when I say, Thank You Hapslash and Infinity Blade.

General Grievous | 1.32 MB

Grievous model. What a beauty it is, and I hated Grievous. Detail, down to the scratches on his metal surface and the six fingers on his hands, make this model one of a kind. Not only does this model have Bot, NPC and team support, but it also comes with a caped and non-caped version, as well as custom sounds! What would Grievous be without his unique voice? Well here you have it - General Grievous. Download and enjoy. Bot Support: Yes Team Support: Yes New Sounds: Yes NPC Support: Yes ~Inyri

Jedi Academy Minimizer | 18.24 KB

care of immediately. What do you do? How can you get to the program without popping out of the game and losing all your hard-earned points. Well, I’ll tell. We now have the utility everyone has been waiting for, a minimizer for Jedi Academy. It works in single player it works in multiplayer.

So start your downloads now because I have a feeling this one is going to popular. Have at it. - Daku




-A- Hilts | 2.71 MB

have custom stances and some have altered sabers, like the really short one. The only hilts that I didn\'t really like were the reversed saber ones. Like, you hold the hilt in front of you, with the saber behind you, sorta. You\'ll have to test the hilts to see what I mean. Some of the hilts here, I really like, but I\'d rather use the hilts without the altered stances and animations. This hilt pack didn\'t really need any new sounds added. They are, after all, still just sabers. And I\'m glad there are no new sounds, actually. As much as I like some of the hilts here, I won\'t be keeping this pack. There are just too many here that I don\'t like. But the file size is small enough that it shouldn\'t be too much of a hinderance for you guys to download it. So, enjoy. :) ~AmosMagee

Star Wars Movie Duels

md2_full.exe | 0 Bytes

now, regardless of whether or not you play SP mods. In fact, download it now even if you don't have the game. Go buy the game while you wait. :p Now, I know some of you may look at the file size and freak out - the installer is 875 MB. But it's worth every KB! I don't play SP mods very often, and I just couldn't stop playing. So, let's begin! First off, those menus are excellent. They are easy to navigate and they look nice. Two thumbs up for that alone. :thumbsup: One of the unique things about this mod is that you can play on the good or evil side in most of the scenarios. Taking the side that is supposed to lose usually has some creative storyline fact, it's quite fun for those people who just love being extraordinarily evil for no reason. Like the first version, the only movie-based duels available are the prequels. I guess it would be rather difficult to create duels based on the original trilogy, what with them being less epic and all. Episode I [b]Short Negotiations[/b] covers the very first fight sequence in Episode I, where Qui-Gon-Jinn and Obi-Wan are sent as ambassadors to Naboo to resolve the trade dispute. There are many embellishments here, but overall, it's true enough to the original story. [b]Outskirts of Tatooine[/b] is the duel between Qui-Gon and Darth Maul right before they depart for Coruscant. This one was mostly true to the story, the only thing it was missing was the bike at the beginning (unless I somehow missed it). [b]Duel of the Fates[/b] - Wowie! Very well done. Beginning in the hangar bay and moving into the purply-white-lightning-tube section, this one had it all. It seemed like every little detail was checked with a fine-tooth comb. Everything worked wonderfully, with one exception - when I took over as Obi-Wan and the force fields released, I ran backwards and was locked out. After a very long, patient wait, I decided it was time to noclip back in and finish the job. The ending cutscene did not disappoint, either. Episode II [b]Escape Jengo Fett[/b] is a recreation of the fight between Obi-Wan and Jango on one of Kamino's landing pads. I didn't play the winning side, so I can't say whether or not the fight is entirely accurate. When I played as Obi-Wan, the fight consisted of Boba flying around shooting while Obi-wan tried to slash him up. After enough damage was dealt, a fistfight ensued. [b]Tusken Camp[/b] should be pretty obvious by the name. Anakin is looking for his mother, and he has found the Tusken camp. The mission is simply to break into the tent from the back and discover your mother is dead. Then all tuskens must be destroyed. On paper, it's short, but in-game, it's a little longer than that. [b]Geonosis Arena[/b] begins with Windu's appearance during Obi-Wan, Anakin and Padme's execution. I had some serious problems while testing this one...when the battle began and I jumped into the arena, the game lagged terribly. I assume this is because of all the AI calculations happening at once - but still, I'm running a 2 GHz core 2 duo - I shouldn't have any problems with that. Immediately afterward, I was looking for the path to travel on next, and I stumbled on a door that could be force pushed. On opening it, I was able to walk outside the map and see the void in many areas. It was obvious I was on the wrong I turned back and found the correct one. After rescuing Shaak Ti, Jango Fett jumped onto the field. He was the final boss. [b]Battle of Geonosis[/b] was probably the least accurate. A large part of this is due to limitations of the engine and the lack of SP source code, so I'm not going to make a big deal out of it. I just expected "all forward positions are advancing" to mean that somebody, somewhere, was actually advancing. :p [b]Count Dooku's Escape[/b] is the long duel sequence at the end of Episode II with Count Dooku. Everything seemed accurate here, and I didn't see anything wrong. I think the force battle between Yoda and Dooku could have been elongated, but that would have detracted from the play time. Episode III [b]Rescue Over Coruscant[/b] - Defeat Count Dooku. Anakin and Obi-wan fight at first, then you go solo as Anakin. Not much else to say here. [b]Engage General Grievous[/b] includes the original confrontation on Utapau and the ending on the landing pad, where Obi shoots Grievous' insides out. It was a little short, but c'mon, did you really expect to see the entire chase scene recreated as well? [b]Arrest the Chancellor[/b] was probably the best one, aside from Duel of the Fates. Windu and his three Jedi accomplices walk into Palpatine's office to arrest him, and he fights back, saber in hand. Eventually you, as Windu, force palpatine to beg in the corner of the window, then Anakin shows up. From there, your destiny is in your own hands. [b]Attack on the Jedi Temple[/b] was hard. Only a few scenes from here were shown in the movie, like the killing of the younglings. But now, instead of the camera cutting away after your lightsaber comes on, you get to kill them yourself. On top of that, you have a lot of jedi to slice through on your way to the center of the temple. [b]Assassination on Mustafar[/b] involves only one faction - Anakin. You are sent to Mustafar to "take care of" Viceroy Gunray and the other separatist leaders. I was unable to complete the mission without noclip, however - I couldn't figure out how to turn off the force field. Otherwise, well done. [b]Retaking the Jedi Temple[/b] - Obi-Wan and Yoda have already fought through the clones outside, and now they need to clear out the inside of the jedi temple. Clones are everywhere, and some of them have more than just guns. This was pretty fun - I loved running around as little Yoda, dodging shots and jumping into someone's face. [b]Masters of the Force[/b] was the epic duel between Yoda and Palpatine, beginning in the room below the senate chambers and then moving up into the chamber itself for an extremely difficult end...the lightning that Yoda and Palpatine were supposed to shoot back and forth didn't seem to work right, though. [b]Battle of the Heroes[/b] recreates the most intense master/apprentice duel ever in Star Wars. Anakin and Obi-Wan go head-to-head on Mustafar, from the landing pad to the inside of the building, and even across the pipes and onto the equipment hanging over the lava. There was a bug here where Anakin disappeared during a jump sequence...but really, that's easy to overlook when you consider how epic the rest of the duel is. The Rise of the Empire [b]An Old Enemy[/b] - Obi-Wan is hunted down by an old enemy that he thought he defeated long ago. It's Darth Maul - refitted with robots legs. Now you have to finish him off...on a rainy tatooine. Yeah, that was a major eye-popper. Rain on tatooine. But the duel was very interesting. [b]Darth Vader's Redemption[/b] - to become a powerful sith lord, Vader must face his former self and defeat it for good. If he loses, Palpatine dukes it out with the good anakin. [b]A New Hope[/b] was a neat surprise. For you TFU fans, here you go - a mission with Starkiller in it. I don't care for TFU at all, but if you do, I'm sure you'd be happy to play this one. Challenge Mode And if all that wasn't enough, you can play in challenge mode, which takes you from duel to duel with all the major characters. You can customize the character you play as. According to the readme, there are 15 stages. I didn't get very far...I think I should brush up on those lightsaber skills. Along the way, I did spot many small graphical glitches and some areas I felt could use improvement. But I'm going to omit most of that - honestly, the vast amount of work that was put into this mod is incredible. Anyone with the commitment and patience to produce something on this scale deserves a huge pat on the back (at least) from everyone. There was one glitch on the menus that's worthy of note, though - Battle of the Heroes' missing description is incorrect until you start loading the level. One last thing I'll mention - at first, I had difficulty testing this out, because none of the maps would start. Instead, I would be kicked out to the main menu with no error message and no way to quit the game except ctrl+alt+del. After several hours of checking installations and making new isolated copies of the game, I remembered to insert the game disc. From then on, it was smooth sailing. You may commence jeering laughter at me. But remember - if you get an error while loading a map, you will get no error screen and instead will have to ctrl+alt+del your way out of the game. It's not a bug - it's an engine limitation, and it's just a minor side effect of having an awesome menu setup. If you still haven't started the download, do so, and play it when you get a little free time. You won't be disappointed. ~Dretzel




Matrix Reloaded | 33.34 MB

so much to choose from. I might as well begin with the main FFA maps, which come in day, and nightime versions. The main area has had a huge work overhaul, and isn't quite the same as usual. There's still the basketball court, middle section e.t.c, but it's seems a little smaller, possibly because the floor textures are bigger then they were before. ;) If this is so, how is the filesize bigger? Well, here's why. There's a whole host of new arenas, textures and fun duel areas to keep your interest, and there's even a bouncy castle now! I spent over half an hour bouncing around there and looking like a prat :) Anyway, more on that later. The second reason for the larger filesize is that Nathan has included a new piece of music (as well as the Burlybrawl.mp3) which happens to be my favourite Matrix music of all time :D Just listen to it at around 1:00min. FANTASTIC :) (It's the chateaux fighting music.) Now then, back to the map. There are some new areas, and some old ones have gone. This may cause unrest for those who enjoyed these areas, and I hope I won't detract from anyone's expreience. The sniper areas are still intact, for which I'm very happy, although Nathan has decided not to include the flat areas in his interests of keeping high FPS throughout the whole map, which I might add he has done spectacularly well :) I averaged over 100fps throughout the whole map! And i still averaged over 35fps with 4x Anti-Aliasing on :) No kidding! So, although the flats are gone, servers wont be getting any lag problems with this map. Now, don't get upset because they're gone, be happy, because the new and improved areas make up for this loss very well. The skating rink looks neater than ever (Love the blue beams) and the fans in there weren't just added to fill space, you can tell each area has been really well thought out. As I mentioned before, there's also a bouncy castle area (which is great fun) and also a raceway which stretches around the top of the main arena, and theres a short one in the car park as well. So, that brings me onto the car park area. Now this is probably the area which has changed the most from the V2. For a start, the textures in here are a HUGE improvement over the v2, and this makes the whole arena that much more creative. Secondly, the road has been tweaked and altered into a 3-storey ...thingy. ;) Which looks very good. The roof area is still intact, and the electric room is more detailed. What's next? Ah yes, the secret room. This area of the map looks nicely made, with a huge stereo system and a DJ set. Pity most of its textures were missing :( Not to worry, its a hidden room, so I doubt many people will use it :) The other areas, which many will remember from the V1 and v2 are the Chateaux, the Teahouse and the 'Coded' Teahouse. The teahouse is very well designed, and realistic. It's probably the best one-on-one duel area in the map, so I spent lots of time looking at all the cool architecture e.t.c. Then I moved onto the 'Coded' version. The first thing I noticed was that the scrolling matrix code looks much, MUCH neater and flows together with each other in a much improved way. Plus, it looks especially cool with Dynamic Glow on :) The final area I found was the Chateaux. It has come a long way from the v1, although not much has changed here from the V2 version. Good job :) Finally, the Architects room. The textures in here are a little misaligned, but I can't see them being any better. ( Being a mapper myselft and knowing how frustrating curves can be;) ) Theres still the good old chair and 2 doors to choose from. This room is a good duel area, although its fun to see how many people you can cram in there :) That's about all I have to say for the day version. Next, the NIGHT version ! Well, it's basically the same map, except at night-time :) The most noticable difference, aside from it having a nicer sky and darker lighting, is the windows in the main area. They now glow from within, casting lovely shadows all over the arena. My one downer was that the colour is a little too contrasted for my liking, but its still a lovely effect. Oh wait, I missed an area! The corridors! They are again, much improved, and look better. You can also tell which doors teleport and which ones dont because some pulsate and some dont. Anyway, back on track. What else is different in the night version.. well, that's actually about it. There's no special arenas in it, but it doesnt need em. I just like the change in atmosphere :) Finally, there is now a clever map in the levelshot, showing you where all the arenas are, so if you found yourself getting lost in the V2, this should make life easier for you :D I personally think this is a much better idea than having 2 maps, one with, and one without signs (like the V2) because it would make the filesize way too large. I really can't recommend this download enough, it may be a bit on the large side, but it's well worth it :) :) The other 7 maps are duel maps, ecah one in a certain part of the main map. They're basically the same areas found in the main ffa maps, except with the rest closed off. And don't worry, they also come in day and night variations :D 10/10 Perfect work. :) New Textures: Yes New Music: Yes Bot Support : Yes ~Szico VII~




Samurai (v2) | 6.15 MB

one there has some great looking armor and katanas. The mask and helmet are very detailed and interesting to gaze upon. I didn't notice any problems with weighting, but I didn't play with it much. The team skins for the first model are what you'd expect, and they look wonderful. The second model features a maskless warrior who has a very serious look about him. Nice facial hair, too. The third Samurai there is actually no helmet or mask and is considered the "Archer". He looks great. According to the readme, these models were inspired by The Last Samurai and I'm quite pleased with them. The only thing that disappoints me is that there weren't any new sounds done. Please, please update this model with sounds. And do more models.[/quote] The V2 definitely expands on all the points mentioned in that review, with the inclusion of new sounds and more skins/models to add to the pack. The sounds are a two-edged sword, because, although the voices sound excellent, the phrases can seem a bit cheesy. I'd expect a samurai to have a japanese taunt with some kind of deep spiritual meaning, but instead we have things like "Don't cry." which I daresay sounds slightly wimpy ;) All the death sounds e.t.c are fitting and I've got no problems with these. Onto the actual models then :) Well, there’s not much to fault with these models. As with the first versions, there's plenty of detail - samurai swords, chains, cuffs and large intricate headgear all combine together to make a visually stunning model. The skins which accompany these models are of a similar quality - the textures are fantastic and the faces manage to capture that japanese/chinese kind of expression. I believe there's also some new models in this skin - a samurai who is less armoured, similar to Hattori Hanzo from Kill Bill, (in terms of clothing) and some otherwise samurai looking ones which I can't really relate to anything else, just have a look at the screenshots (which were from the author because they show the models much better than mine did.) One thing which I did find slightly irritating about some of the models was the flag wedged into their backs, but the author(s) have been extremely initiative and have included documentation on how to remove the flags. Very nice :) There are some flaws though, as with most new models. Firstly, you dont actually get to see most of the model when you're actually playing, which means you miss out on 80% of the work put into this. Honestly, the backs of these skins aren't what you want to be looking at, and the detail which is on the front is unfortunately lost when you're playing. Admittedly this isn't a fault of the author, but maybe a little more detail on the back could have been nice. Secondly, with the model shown in the final screenshot, his trousers have some clipping errors when you run. It's nothing that’s going to end the world, but is a small bug. The author didn't forget the team skins, and they are too stunning. Although not significantly different from the base skins, they clearly represent the red and blue aspect with different coloured helmets, belts e.t.c. The only aspect missing now is bot support, something I sorely miss from a great model/skin. I don't know if there's going to be a third version, but if there is, please add bot support so I can have samurai wars ;) New Sounds: Yes Team Support: Yes Bot Support: No ~Szico VII~




Singleplayer Yoda 1.0 | 2.51 MB

know my opinion - I\'ve always felt that they are pointless and a waste of space. That said, a woman has a right to change her mind. ;) Replacement mods for JK2 were often just Kyle being replaced by the model or skin du jour. They became boring to play and review. Now I know that replacing the main character with Yoda has been done before, but for JA, it\'s just so much more entertaining. I love the first glimpse of Yoda on the ship ... you see Rosh sitting there as the camera pans over to Yoda, and then all you see is an empty seat and just a small shot of his ears. LOL Love that! Anyway, Yoda is the proper size and though everything doesn\'t all line up, I can forgive that just because it was fun playing with Yoda in this. :) What I like best about this SP mod is what\'s promised for the next version. All of Jaden\'s sounds will be replaced with Yoda\'s sounds and Yoda will even have a custom made ship (read the readme for more info). If only there were a Yoda impersonator who could do the voice-over for the cut scenes (if that\'s even possible). That would really complete this mod. :) I have a feeling that SP replacement mods are going to be much better for JA than they were for JK2 and I\'m actually looking forward to playing some now. :) ~AmosMagee




The Academy | 24.36 MB

map. If there were ever such a thing as evolution, this would define it. Players of The Academy v2 won\'t recognise much except the core fundamentals. Everything has changed, yet at the same time so much remains the same. Firstly, I\'ll start with the main chamber. I had to use noclip to access this, as it\'s initially locked, hence the screenshots not being taken in spectator mode. This room fits the theme of a council chamber perfectly, in every sense. As well as having the Jedi theme, it also has some unexplainable academic edge to it, some element I can\'t quite isolate. Needless to say, the architecture is great, and is quite possibly the best I\'ve seen in a Yavin Temple map for ages - it\'s simple, yet at the same time visually pleasing. Not one mis-aligned texture to be found - this is the point where I realised exactly why this map had taken so long: Virtue\'s gone over it with a fine-toothed comb, and then gone over it again with an even finer one. There\'s really not much to say about this as the screenshots will say enough, except that the view over the courtyard looks good and gives it that \"campus\" feel. Leading off from the main chamber are the security rooms and a sparring room. The sparring room is essentially the same design principle as the equivalent room in v2, except that much more attention to detail has been given to it. Again, it\'s what you\'d expect. The security room is simple - it just has buttons to lock down parts of the academy. Typical Rebel base design, yet still very well constructed too look the part almost impeccably. Next is the battleground. Believe me when I say that you won\'t recognise it. It has been translated from a walled-in enclosure into a large outdoor area. The terrain looks as good as it can in Q3 engine, there\'s good use of lighting and effects, and the area is littered with weapons - leading me to believe that the majority of combat and lessons takes place out here. Across the battleground you\'ll find a small ruin with an elevator. This leads into what appears to be the dorm area. Several rooms are down here: medical room, bar, strategy center, and a few storage rooms. Everything is, again, well-designed and error-free. What impressed me most was the strategy center\'s layout - it hits the spot exactly, and I suspect that a little inspiration was likely taken from real world sources. My only grievance is that the music in the bar is still present, and there\'s no way short of deleting the mp3 to make it shut up (you can tell that I dislike that song, huh?) - which is a shame, as it clashes with the great BGM. Interestingly enough, this underground dormitory area is also a training zone, although I suspected it may be since only RP\'ers would really have much use for many of the areas (except the bar - that can universally be used as a \"Safe Zone\" in any type of server). Now... Ah, wait, screw it, I\'m too lazy to keep switching between spec and ingame modes. Ahem, now let\'s move on to the central courtyard, possibly my fave area. This is almost the same as v2, which is good, because it\'s a little bit of the original in there, but what makes it stand out is the adjoining \"Hall of Fame\" area. As well as being possibly the most aesthetically-pleasing part of the map, it contains memorials which count as a way of honoring the people who made the Academy what it is - quite sentimental, and hell, those guys deserve an honorable mention for giving up most of their free time for the benefit of a gaming community which on the whole generally doesn\'t appreciate the sacrifices that have been made for them by many. Most important of all is the memorial to Vladarion - I\'m glad that\'s still in there. An in-game memorial to an in-game friend. Nerdy? Hell yes, but really, who cares? Honoring someone you knew well and cared for is the right thing to do, and a friend is still a friend whether you know them as a human or as an avatar. Again, another display that we\'re all still humans behind the keyboards, and that can only be a good thing. OK, this review is getting long. Too long. Let\'s move on before Inyri starts making wisecracks about Oscar acceptance speeches or some such nonsense... >_> The classrooms are the core of the map, naturally. The three sparring rooms are still intact and very much unchanged aside from the removal of the viewing areas. What is really new now, is the stairways leading to elevators. These lead up to the second floor, where there\'s a brand spankin\' new classroom built for all kinds of classes. It\'s got seating (which, in non-RP terms, means \"Go stand over there so you don\'t get in the way!\" :p ), and the glass walkways make it easier to see what\'s going on around the room. Jutting off from here is a supply room for healing, and a sentry room for defensive training (which I have to admit, I took a few lessons in myself while playtesting >_> ). All in all, everything a Jedi will need to train themselves, I guess. The final room to cover, is the bridge room. I loved this one, and now with the addition of multiple levels, I love it even more. Why? I dunno, I guess I like combat in these environments. Must still be jacked in to the Matrix or something. (By the way, Ghost is WAY cooler than Neo. And Enter The Matrix should have been much longer than it was.) Er, yeah, this room is still fun for combat, and if you like, you can even simulate Revolver Ocelot-style pistol matches a lá Metal Gear Solid. ;) All in all, a fun little sparring room. Now, because I\'ve made this review extremely wordy and unnecessarily long, I\'ll summarise: - Texture Usage: All textures appropriately used and well-fitted. No errors. - Architecture: A bit plain, very simple, yet still aesthetically pleasing and appropriate. - Design: Simple, yet elegant. Made for a purpose and suits it perfectly. The theme ties in very well together. - Creativity: It\'s an updated remake. The heck are you asking me about creativity for? :p - Custom Material: Surprisingly, most of this is built with base resources. Congrats on utilising them better than Raven Software could! The few custom resources in the pack are just fine. Some of them could work better, but they\'re fine for their purpose. I admit it, I\'m gushing with nothing but praise for this. Why? Because it\'s the best map ever? No, I don\'t make judgements like that. Because it looks more awesome than any other map? Nope. So why is it then? Because it [i]works[/i]. It\'s been properly tested, properly tweaked, properly optimised, so on and so forth, and Virtue\'s delayed the release of it almost indefinitely in order to make sure it was only released when it was [i]ready[/i] - something that no mapper seems to do these days. Overall, this is an improvement in every way over v2, and the Academy members should be proud to call this their \"home away from home\". Virtue should also be proud for creating something which raises the standard and finally proves that complexity is [i]not[/i] synonymous with quality. Great work, Virtue, and I hope you expand your mapping horizons. I also hope that others follow from your example of thinking purely about the map rather than about the reaction it will get from the general public. ~ Kouen [b]Bot Routing:[/b] Yes [b]Custom Textures:[/b] Yes [b]Custom Music:[/b] Yes [b]Custom Models:[/b] Yes




Human Female Skin Expansion Pack | 4.79 MB

there now happens to be \"1628 total variations, without using any of the original heads or 5 out 6 of the original torsos.\" The new looks are just lovely. I don\'t particularly care for the orange one in the third screenshot, but it\'s nice to have more choices. :) I really like that last one ... the blue one. And with the new hair colors, it just gives this particular face a softer look, y\'know? There\'s not much more I can say other than - DO MORE! ;) I would love to see more new styles for the human female. Especially some different faces - if possible. And maybe make some more clothing options that are more like the Zabrak and Twi\'lek styles available for the human. Anyway, great job. :D ~AmosMagee

us get started. FIrst off, I shall give out the basic stats that Spanki provided for us in the readme. Not including the bonus skins of famous SW characters he provided, the customization offers: - 27 customization screens - 96 customizable heads ( + 11 unique heads of RPG chars ) - 288 customizable torsos ( + 11 unique torsos of RPG chars ) - 20 customizable boots - red and blue glowing lights variations - 552.960 possibilities at all These factors are no doubt earth-shatteringly astounding to the publics eyes, no less. This, however, presents a problem to those who enjoy the JCP: 32 customization screens is the limit on JA, and as such, you're left to either fend for yourself in hunting for the right outfit, or you'll have to dump one. Sort of disappointing, actually, because I felt like this could have been prevented. The reason I say this is because most of the focus on this pack was mostly in the TORSOS, as opposed to the heads. There are only actually 3 "sets" of heads to work with, so to speak. Whilst you were given slightly limited clothing options with 6 sets of heads in the JCP, now you have 3 sets with MASSIVE clothing options. Honestly, *I* personally didn't like the trade off, as it resulted in the above problem, and the head selection was a little out there for my tastes. Granted, the above paragraph IN NO WAY states that this skin pack is bad. Suffice to say, it's magnificent to behold and use. However, I'm not the kind of guy who likes his Sith to be dressed in enough aesthetics to mask his entire ethnicity half the time and be mistaken for a gluttonous merchant. Whilst this is not the case in this pack, I did notice that there weren't exactly a lot of normal, human faces. The first set of faces is dark, brooding, and unnatural looking, as a typical Sith would look like. The second set features mostly alien races. The third set is a mixture of some human and alien races. Most of the human faces in this section aren't very diverse, however. They tend to sport similar features, and as I mentioned before, there's no average looking face. Not every Dark force user bathes in pure Darkside in the morning o_O. Gripes aside, we move onto the massive department store of outfits. My word, looks like black and brooding is in this season, eh? =_o A lot of the clothing options here were pretty dark, but a lot of them sported SOME form of alternating color, so as not to make every outfit the same. Armor variations and what have you were also included in this pack, so you can go into combat well-armed. Featured exclusively in this customization to stand out from the JCP would be the ability to have a "hood only" customization option, so as to mask your visage without having the heavy robe to carry about. Diverting away from the customization section, we can see in our menu that we have 11 delicious characters to select now. They are: Exar Khun Darth Bane Darth Krayt A´shared Hett Darth Kruhl Ulic Qel Droma Kyp Durron Cade Skywalker Aviar Jagged Fel Nomi Sunrider ( I wanted to include something for the ladies :P ) Apparently one female skin was enough to say he was throwing the ladies a bone XD ⌐_⌐.... Moving on, it is safe to say that all of these skins are amazingly awesome to behold. They're finely crafted, although a lot of them don't seem to sport hooded versions. Ah well. Sounds. The majority of the sounds in this pack were composed of altered Kyle and Jaden(both genders if I'm not mistaken,) soundbits. Some taunts sounded out of place for some of the RPG characters presented, and I wasn't too thrilled when the customizations were stuck with a monstrous form of dark side Jaden's overacted lines, but overall, they were still a pretty well chosen set of sounds. So =_= here it is. Now you must decide for yourself whether to remain on your so called path of light or embrace the power of emotion, and unleash the true fury of humanoid-kind. Those willing for the latter(or both O_o) are more than encouraged to submit bandwidth to this powerful pack of skins. Me? Eh, might keep it, might not. Either way, it still stomps colons.

FFA Episode 1 2004 | 30.87 MB

lot new here. I found one room that was added on, but really the only purpose that hallway serves is to house a few more weapons. The map is definitely signiture LDJ eye candy and the FPS is quite telling of that. I have a decent system (not the best, but not ancient) and I was getting about 20 FPS in that one big area with the things ... y\'know, those big glowy things. What are those called, damn it? Oh, and those red shield things ... those were changed a little. An animation was added and it just looks a lot better. There is one thing that I remember from one of the older versions and that is that we were able to go outside to play. But that\'s blocked off now. It\'s all just to look at. :( Anyway, for those who are experiencing LDJ\'s maps for the first time - I\'m sure you\'ll enjoy this map. He\'s always quite accurate and detailed. And the JK2 version was a lot of fun, at first. I have to admit, I got bored after the novelty of the map wore off. My biggest complaint about this map is, of course, the FPS. While the gameplay is great on this map (okay, I do have a lot of memories of being pushed, pulled, gripped and thrown off into the pit, only to be saved by one of those walkways and jump up behind Shroom and kick him off ... heh heh), there\'s nothing here that most of us haven\'t seen before. I\'d like to see LDJ create a new map that\'s all about the gameplay and less focused on eye candy. Bot Support: No New Textures: Yes New Music: Yes Game Types: FFA, Duel ~AmosMagee

Movie Battles II V0.0.2 - Full | 1.1 GB

never anything on this level. I present to you, Movie Battles II, the product of untold hours of work from some of the best and brightest skinners, mappers, coders and modder's ever to play Jedi Knight. I have to say a massive thank you right now to the Movie Battles II team, not only for allowing me to review their gargantuan mod, but also for allowing us to host the file here on JKFiles, where it will join the ranks of the most famous Jedi Knight mods of all time, here in our Great Library of Jedi Knight-exandria. ;) This is going to be a biiiigg review! Whew, where to start?! Well, firstly I have to say that although I really love the mod and think it is great how it has become so popular, popular enough indeed to have its own community within the wider JKA community, I cant help but feel a little worried. Why? Well, I cant help but feel that in order to produce a mod of such grand scope and fantastic quality, they have poached some of the best talent from JKA in general. For example, many of the incredible skins, weapons and even maps are only available for MB2, which is kind of a loss for the JKA community in generally, unless you are somewhat sneaky and take a skin out of the MB2 assets and pack it up for personal use in JKA. Ehm, not that I am endorsing that at all... muahaha... ;) Personally I would really love to see more of the MB2 assets available to base JKA players in general, since that would help keep [i]both[/i] communities strong and provide us with a long stream of excellent files to review! But that is of course up to the MB2 team and the individual authors. Since this is the latest version of Movie Battles II, what improvements does it include? Well, for a more comprehensive list you can see the changelog, but to highlight some of the major ones; [*] Multiple new maps, including the Emperors Spire and Malachor V [*] Updates to various existing maps, such as Duel of the Fates and Tatooine. [*] Fantastic mini-maps for most of the maps, which give you a detailed overview of your location in the map and the location of others, you can also enable a larger overview map from the Movie Battles II options. This is one of my personal favourite features! [*] Lots of new bug fixes. [*] Lots of new gameplay tweaks and improvements, including the abilities purchases using the points system (again, see the more detailed changelog for details!). [*] Some new weapon sounds and various improved effects. [*] Too many more to mention right here! So what kind of features does this gigantic mod have? Weellll... [b][u]Models and Skins[/u][/b] For starters, there is a vast selection of models and skins there are available to choose from, out of each class that you can choose from ingame, there are several, sometimes even a dozen or so, different skins or models you can choose from. For instance, the Sith Class features, among others; Darth Traya, Count Dooku, Jerec, several versions of Darth Maul, Darth Malak and even Darth Talon! And that is only one [i]class[/i]! Along with that there are yet more skins/models available in Full Authentic mode that are not available in Open mode, including, but not limited to; Darth Revan, Bastila, numerous Clone Trooper skins and other equally cool characters! (PLEASE MB2 guys, release that Revan skin for Base JKA, that would be an instant hit!). Bear in mind that these are all made by top notch modelers and skinners, and so all are fantastic quality. Most of the custom models/skins also have custom sounds to go with them, rounding them off nicely. Multiply this by the several classes that there are to choose from, both on the light and dark team sides and you get a he amount of skins and models, the work that must have gone into the skins and models along must have been huge. [b][u]Weapons and Effects[/u][/b] Then there are the new weapons and the effects that go with them. For instance, there is the Westar M5 and BlasTech A280 Blaster Rifles, (I happen to own a very nice A280 in Star Wars Galaxies ;)) as well as the Fallann Hyper Rifle as used by Zam Wesell in Episode II. Various weapons also have additional features which can be unlocked by purchasing points in the relative categories in the points screen, For instance if you fully upgrade the A280, not only do you get the ability to rapid fire, but also a sniper scope too, further increasing the weapons potency. That's not to mention the rocket launchers and various pistols and carbines, all modeled in high quality and with custom effects and sounds! Then there are several different kinds of grenades as well, which are available to particular classes (once you have spent the points to get them of course). While I am on the subject of effects, I should mention that you definitely need to play ingame to see how good they are, since no screenshots could do them justice. The way lumps of debris fly out of an explosion with a trail of dust and other such things are much more realistic than the Base JKA effects and definitely add to the combat. There are also two different levels of effects, normal; which is, well, normal, and high; which is more graphically intensive but also looks much better. Obviously if you have a powerful computer, you will want to use the full fat 'high' mode. But its good that there is also a lower setting so that people with older computers aren't shut out. The lightsaber blades and trails though are something pretty special. Unlike the base JKA saber blades and trails that we are all used to, when you swing a lightsaber in MB2, the trail actually looks like like the sharp blur (oxymoron's FTW!) of a moving lightsaber as you see in the films, rather than just a fuzzy trail out behind the blade like they are in Base JKA. The only other mod to my knowledge that has this impressive effect is the Open Jedi Project. PLEASE somebody make a mod which gives us these kind of movie realistic blades and saber trails in Base JKA! [b][u]Maps[/u][/b] Well, I already mentioned that this latest version of MB2 adds the Emperor's Spire and Malachor V, among others to MB2's already impressive repertoire or maps. Some of the other movie themed maps include, but are not limited to: Mustafar, Tatooine, Mygeeto, a Trade Federation Battleship (as seen at the start of Episode I), The Star Forge, The Valley of the Jedi, Kamino, Utapau, the Tantive IV and many, many more! The maps are the only area where I feel some improvements could be made, since some of them date to way back and aren't up to the same kind of standards of detailing and such that the newer maps are. That isn't to say older maps such as Lunar Base aren't great too, in fact gameplay wise they are just as good as the newer ones, I just feel they could do with a bit of a sprucing up detail wise. Speaking of Lunar Base, I just love that window which, when broken, sucks people out into space! In this new version, it also amazingly registers kills and team kills! Some of the best mappers around have made maps for Movie Battles II, and no doubt as more updates are released more maps and locations will be added. What is my favourite map? Well, that is a touch choice! So many of the maps are beautiful to look at (gotta love that Mustafar Skybox!) and feel alive and interactive. I did very much like the Malachor V Trayus Core duel map, since good KotOR 2 themed maps seem to be lacking from JKA, but I also liked Lunar Base because of its excellent layout and gameplay. But then Comm Tower is also a great map, and it reminds me of the original Jedi Knight and JK2 as well. Well, I guess I cant pick a favourite myself, not without spending a lot more time playing MB2 to find out all the ins and outs of each map anyways. As I mentioned earlier, many of the maps now also have mini maps which are displayed in the HUD, this is one of my favourite features as it actually shows a map, with [i]walls[/i], unlike the Base JKA radar map, which only shows objectives and such. This makes it much easier to tell where your team mates, objectives and enemies are in relation to the structure and layout of the map. That brings me nicely onto... [b][u]The HUD and Menu's[/u][/b] As well as having a nice new mini map, the entire HUD has been revamped with new graphics. There are two new indicators on each side of the screen for your health, shields, ammo, force and saber style, which look much better and sleeker than the base JKA ones. I personally would love to see these parts of this HUD used for a Base JKA HUD mod, if any of the MB2 guys would care to make one for us *nudge nudge*. ;) There is an options menu section dedicated to MB2 options, including setting keys for your class special actions (such as being able to sprint faster for a limited period etc.) and also a media section for setting your screenshot key, and the ability to set a key to record a Demo movie! Whilst I personally prefer to use Fraps, this is definitely a much needed option in JKA and one that I am sure people will find useful. The menu's overall are easy to navigate and look good, the main menu, with that picture of the sun bursting over the horizon of Coruscant is very nice, although I think it would be even better if there was a set of screenshots or images that the main menu background cycled through, just to add a bit more movement to it (since it seems a little still compared to the Base JKA menu, with its little video set in the middle). [b][u]General Gameplay[/u][/b] The main complaint that I have always had with Movie Battles II was that you can die quite quickly, and you don't respawn. That is unless you have spent points in the section which allows your particular class to respawn, 'reinforcements' I think it is called. This complaint has most likely come from being someone who has played and enjoyed a lot of Siege, a gametype in which the gameplay is fast and furious because people are constantly dying, respawning and running like headless chickens to get back into the action, making for some insanely frantic battles. Indeed on Siege Hoth, if you are a Rebel tech, its not uncommon to put up a shield on the bridge (to stop the AT-ST advancing) and then simply throw yourself into the chasm so you can die, respawn, and put down another shield. Since you often only get one life, maybe a few if you have spent points in 'reinforcements', in MB2 it stops this kind of insane gameplay, and thus it seemed a bit slow to me at first, since I died and then that was it. However, as I have played MB2 more, I have come to appreciate the delicately balanced game mechanics which go into it, and once I got used to it, the dying issue didn't bother me so much, though I still personally prefer the ferocious gameplay of a 16 vs 16 Siege game, but that's just me! :P The features I have mentioned above, such as the vast variety of weapons, skins/models and maps, along with different gametype's makes this pretty much a game in of itself and I can see who it has become so amazingly popular. The points system does take a little getting used to and you have to be quick when you start to spend those points where you want them before the round starts. The class system, and the abilities and weapons available to each can also be bewildering at first, but with a bit of practice you will soon get used to it! One nice new feature for this version is that you can now continue to move while using voice chat, which makes the process both quicker and less hazardous to your health. After all stopping in the middle of a fight to open up the voice options and find the button for 'roger!' is likely to get you killed! This latest version of MB2 is full of neat little features like that, and I am sure more of the same will be added in future versions so further enhance gameplay. [b][u]Conclusion[/u][/b] All in all a monumental mod, more of an entirely new game in itself to be honest. If you want to know more about what is new for this version, then you should check out the changelog which is in the readme section below. The full readme for the mod can be found in the .zip. The only downside with downloading this is the sheer insane size of it. In fact it is very close to the size of Base JKA itself! This is definitely worth a download, and you guys had better make sure this gets to the top of our download charts, since the MB2 team is paying me 2 Millio... uhh, did I say that out loud?! Umm, cookies, that's it, yeah they are giving me cookies to review this. They aren't bribing me with millions of dollars to give them a good review, not at all. Complete nonsense! Don't forget to view the videos below! ;) ~Nozyspy~ Subaru is awesome. There you go, I actually put that in here! View the video below to get a taster of what Movie Battles II is like: And here, for your viewing pleasure, a preview of things to come!




Deathstar Trench v2.0 | 10.58 MB

place, you can choose between the X-Wing, A-Wing, and Y-Wing. You then go through hyper space, and arrive at the Death Star. What could be better? Your opponents are waiting on the other side, that's what. The other team has access to all kind of Tie Fighters, even a real strange looking one. Look at the screen shots below, I’m sure you will be able to spot it. That one is my favorite. You can choose the vehicle you wish to have in the game, by going to one of the control panels. A name will appear on the screen, it tell you what it spawns. You can then spawn it, and start flying it around. Be careful if you choose a rebel vehicle. There are turrets on the Death Star, that would love to put a hole in you, if you know what I mean. ;) Don’t let your mind wander though, if you spawn in one of the hangers in the Death Star, make sure you are in a vehicle, when you exit the hanger. There is no air outside of the hanger, so you better be in a vehicle. Near the end of the trench, there is a hole on the ground. Aim at that and fire. You will see an explosion effect, and you get 25 points added to your score. I couldn’t really find any bugs in this map, which makes me very happy. I did though have trouble approaching the Y-Wing. Every time I got near, it shot me. :PThe author also included version 2 versions of this map. The first version just has the basic ships. The second has all the ships. The author also put the proper credits in his Readme, even giving credit to the vehicles. You need to unzip all the .PK3’s from the .zip. One is the map, the others are the vehicles that the maps uses. Great Job Dude! Bot Support: No New Textures: Yes New Music: No Game Types: FFA, TFFA -Airm




Four Armed Grevious | 1.49 MB

give Grievous four arms! You generally would expect something of a remodel, but that\'s not the case here. First off, there are now four arms. All that the author has done is split the original Grievous arm, and then raise it up, and then he weighed it to the arms. While this works, it doesn\'t look all too good. First off, the top arms are very stretched, and they only move when the regular arms move. Otherwise you have two very stretched arms coming out of Grievous\'s back. It\'s funny, as I heard somewhere that Grievous looks like a chicken. Anyways, to make him look like a chicken, crouch, and you\'ll see what I mean. Anyways, the weighing wasn\'t that great, as evidenced in the stretching. I saw some places where a couple of reset xforms could have fixed. The left arm, mainly. When you walked it would be sideways. This model could have been weighed better. Okay, other the weighing issues, the author also made Grievous hunched. Yay. Now he looks like a hunched chicken. The hunchedoveredness really messes up a bunch of animations. Seriously, when you do the /bow animation, it looks like Grievous is smoothing his nonexistent hair or giving his head a massage. The strong stance animation makes it look like Grievous is scared and is hiding behind his arms. Okay, in taking the weighing issues and the hunchbacked animation issues, this could use some more work. But, on a plus side, the author has included a four saber mod to go along with the model. But, other issues aside, this can use some serious work. But I\'m sure some of you will like it nonetheless. Bot Support: Yes Npc Support: Yes Team Support: Yes New Sounds: Default Grievous Sounds. ~Zach[/quote] The only changes that were done is that the bot now uses the four saber mod, and that works, at least. But the author also tried to make it tos that the sabers that the bot used were blue and green. That didn\'t work. This model has some serious weighting issues, I would\'ve liked to see the next version actually be a reweighed version.

Boonta Eve Tatooine Pod Race JKR Speedway | 11.07 MB

the created game type is Boonta Eve - Tatooine Pod Race. The map is huge. And it\'s not just one big circle that you race around for a few minutes and get bored. There are a few different paths you can take and there are a few obstacles you have to watch out for. I didn\'t expect to find a Wampa on the track and his growl as I passed by scared the crap outta me. There are also some of those little training droid ball things that shoot at you, placed all around the map - and not surprisingly, there are Tusken Raiders that will try to take you out. Sure, the FPS is a little low, but it\'s not so bad that you won\'t be able to race. The map looks great - there were some areas with z-fighting, but the areas aren\'t important and I only saw them when I spectated and flew around, looking at the tops of buildings and stuff. No bot support, but you don\'t really need it for a JKR map. The sounds are perfect, taken straight from the movie, I believe. I think the track is fairly accurate, but I haven\'t seen the movie in a while, so I can\'t say for sure. Most importantly, I had fun racing in this map. And I can\'t wait to see more of these Speedway maps from you James. Before long, we may see some strictly JKR servers hosting only your maps! :) Great work!

Attack of the Clones: Total Conversion Demo | 53.15 MB

and an early demo, at that. You might recognize a few features from other mods. There\'s a profanity filter, like the one found with xMod. It also has RGB sabers, which offers quite a bit of variety. There\'s an illegal macro/script detection and deletion thingy. You can\'t use force while saber down (I\'m sure that feature can be toggled on and off), admins can teleport someone by name, not just by origins. So there\'s a lot of stuff here that should make admins very happy. :) There are new gametypes and all of the JK2 gametypes. There\'s an Anti-Lag system and there\'s a file that stores banned IP\'s, much like in the JA/JAR mod. Probably the coolest new feature is weather control. You can add lightning, rain and a sandstorm all at once. :) From what I understand, this is like, the mod to end all mods. ;) There are more gametypes that will be added and there\'s a ton of other stuff you can expect in later releases. Keep at it guys! Great work! ~AmosMagee Ps. This review is like, dedicated to Plague, for no particular reason - except that he asked that I dedicate a review to him. ;)




Jurancor Park | 53.51 MB

buttons if I had been playing alone. :P If these screenshots look familiar at all and you have seen Jurassic Park, then Sith-J-Cull has done his job. His accuracy is astounding. But he mixes it up a bit here and there to make sure the map has good gameplay. This is definitely one of those that combines decent areas for dueling, FFAing, RPGing and areas to explore. From the helipad, I cautiously entered the park through the large metal gate. (If only the fence was really electrified.) The enormous wooden gates welcomed me and one of the first things I saw was Sith-J's Restaurant. Amusing. :) And then I saw the Rancors. *gulp* Now, I admit I did explore the map before I got the tour from James, and so when I first saw the Rancor, I wasn't sure if a fence was going to spontaneously break and a Rancor come charging at me. So I ran through pretty quickly and touched NOTHING that had those yellow and black striped warning tape near it. But when I was with James, he made me push 'em. I then quickly climbed a tree or building to get out of the way of the hungry Rancors and Wampas. :P There are some custom swoops included for this map. The review and file for those to follow this. Weapon placement was done well. Oh yeah, those barrels are like, fun to play with. :) You'll find tunnels all around the map that'll take you to other parts of the map. Great for getting away from a Rancor or for just easily exploring - since this map is so big. The details in this map are impressive and here's a good example - go into the museum/center thingy. Pretty incredible from the things he included, the windows and images, fire extinguisher and even the little mosquito DNA movie and ride. The tour even includes the hatchery and it's just amazing. I think my favorite little detail has to be the fossilized walls. And InGen written in little places here and there. There's a lot more in this map that I didn't even mention or show screenhots of. So download this. Now. You won't regret it. Bot Support: Yes New Textures: Yes New Music: Yes Game Types: FFA ~AmosMagee

YodaVM | 4.54 MB

created us a new Yoda, with plenty to choose from. There are 4 different skins included in this, and Ep2, Ep3, Ep5 and Fleeing Yoda. The model is great, only a few clipping problems, but as with the youngling, it is hard to avoid because of the size of the model (remember to add it to your JAplus modelscale server admins!!) The Ep2/3/5 are all easily explained, they\'re basically the robes Yoda was wearing in each of those movies, the Fleeing Yoda (Yoda heading to dagobah) includes a backpack, which is a unique idea and very well executed. There are a few taunts here too, some of them add two quotes together which work quite well. Overall it\'s currently the best Yoda we have and probably we have for the rest of this game\'s time. Yoda fans should be pleased ;) [b]To get the right size for Yoda, I suggest you add the following to ‘modelscale.cfg’ in your JAplus Folder: \"yodavm\" 0.75 \"yodaflee\" 0.75[/b] New Sounds: Yes Team Support: Yes NPC Support: Yes Bot Support: Yes -Rink




Episode III - Mustafar Duel/FFA | 13.77 MB

don't know what the rumours are for the final movie of the trilogy. Apparently it involves lava. James never fails to impress me with his maps. Mustafar is no exception. You did surprise me, James, by making this a duel map. You never do duel maps! And frankly, I don't see this as a duel map at all. It's clearly FFA. The weapon placement is great and there are lots of weapons. There are places where you'll need to press buttons, use force or your saber to get to where you need to go. I love how interactive the map is. And it's just gorgeous. Unfortunately, there are some FPS issues when you step out and see the incredible scene of the lava pits, volcanoes and the pad above. Now let me describe this map in order of screenshots. When I first entered the map, I spawned in this room and it wasn't exactly all that great looking, though I love those doors. I saw this panel over by the window that looks out and I love to press buttons, so I did. And look what happened. :) That would be fun to play with. I like how James incorporated the "natural" surroundings with the building. It feels like this was built in the side of a mountain. The pit over there is inviting for those of us who use grip and want to toss someone down into the lava. :D And I just have to say that I LOVE the windows in here. That weathered look is great. Then I stepped outside and my FPS plummeted. ;) But that's okay. This looks amazing! The terrain is uneven and beautiful. The structure in the center has a few interesting things going on with it and then when you get to the top, things just keep getting more interesting. There's a room to the side where you'll need to figure out (it's easy) how to get inside. Press a button inside and voila! Now anyone dueling on that pad will be electructed! Fun! I thought that was the end of the map, but then I discovered that there was a bridge to another area. I followed that and went through a few rooms 'til I came out on the other side of the volcano. I followed the catwalk until I came to boxes that were blocking the path. Took care of those, and almost fell, but managed to stay on and found my way into that one corridor with the red grating on the bottom. And then I was thankful that bots are really stupid, so I was in no danger of being dropped into the lava below. As always, wonderful job, James. I don't know how you keep doing it, but your maps are some of the best produced. Keep at it!




JAM's JK2/3 Kill Tracker | 3.05 MB

support 4. Note and friend lists 5. Message configurator with a command variable help, color scheme help, and a preview window 6. Media player with playlist capabilities 7. Update check (click JAM in the main browser) and contact information Having been around since the first days of JK2, I've seen all the kill trackers and never been impressed. Whenever someone joined one of the clan servers I played on and I saw that exacerbating kill tracker message, I repeatedly used my "kill tracker off" bind or spammed the same message in the console. To me, "!kt off" was the only good thing about them. JAM's version may have changed my mind about that. While I still don't see the need to publicly track your statistics, the auto-message feature and music options are definitely an evlolution from the early versions. I realize that those options have been available for a while, but as a graphic designer, the ease of use, graphics, and media player feel make JAM's version my choice.

for the game! One of the features of JA that I think we all looked forward to was the use of vehicles, like swoops. It didn't take long for Chrono to give birth to the idea of JK Racing! Well, why not? So add to those new game types, JKR - JK Racing, where you and your friends spawn onto a large race track, set in Tatooine where four swoops await you. Jump on one of the swoops available and speed off down the raceway. Swerve in-between large pillars, take sharp turns around a rock, then either follow the arrow around another turn, or risk plummeting to your death by taking the short cut over a deep chasm. Defeat your opponents by being the fastest and reaching the finish line first, or by being the most deadly and just doing away with your competition. Once all of the swoops are gone, just restart the map to have four more. Or, according to the readme, you can just enable cheats on your server before starting up this map and then spawn as many swoops as you need for a good race. (Oh, and there's rumor of a hidden swoop with guided rockets, but that's all I can say about that.) The map is obviously Tatooine. The track itself is challenging and fun. Is it much to look at? Well, who the heck is looking at their surroundings when they're trying to stay alive in a race like the ones that'll take place on this map!? I love this concept. When testing this mod/map with the others, it was just, so much fun. I can't wait until others make more maps like this to add to the JKR game type. "Wait! I don't know how to make maps that will spawn NPC Vehicles into JA Multiplayer maps!" You don't!? Well, lucky for you, Chrono has included a very detailed tutorial with his mod and map! All you need to know is the basics of making a map to be able to make your very own JKR map! I'm sure there are already some concepts of a JKR map of Coruscant, where we'll be riding swoops high and low and in and out of buildings. Who will be the first to recreate the Podrace track from Episode 1? There are so many possibilities now with Chrono's mod. Great work, I look forward to seeing more of Chrono's JKR maps and more from the community! Bot Support: No New Textures: No New Music: Yes Game Types: Um, JKR (JK Racing) ~AmosMagee[/quote] The biggest, and most noteworthy change in this update is that Chrono has found out how to make the swoops respawn themselves. This makes the mod fully functional, without cheats! But then again, that doesn’t mean you won’t need cheats if you want to see something… special? :D I’ve been with this mod since it’s early days, and it is just wonderful to see it blossom as it is right now. I noticed something that could become a problem. I moved one of the swoops not too far from the starting line, and destroyed it, right? Well, 2 of the other swoops also caught on fire and exploded. Well, due to the swoops respawning, this resulted in an endless cycle of the swoops spawning, catching fire, and exploding. I’ve included a few screenshots below to show this. Maybe in the next update, if it’s possible, delay the time between the destruction of one machine and the spawning of the next? Also, if you wanted to have organized races, then you’ll have to dig around, play around, or find some way to not allow the vehicles to move until after like, a 5 second countdown or something? Maybe it’s not possible, maybe it is. Either way, if this is to become a serious thing, then it will be necessary. ;) I really like this mod, and it could be one of the top mods for JKA as it is! But of course, there is always room for improvement. So, I look forward to even more updates and upgrades, and soon, maps! For all of you, like myself, who wish the best for this mod, should step up and help the cause by making some darn maps! Chrono’s tutorial is very detailed, and should help you to get on your feet making a JKR map. I guess what I’m getting at, is this is a simply [b]wonderful[/b] first modification for JKA. I bet Raven is kicking themselves for not having thought of this. Keep up the great work, Chrono. :) ~Lord Griever~ [b]Bot Support – No New Textures – No New Music – Yes Game Types – Um, yeah, still just Jedi Knight Racing[/b]




Clones Ultima | 18.05 MB

have seen his original clones for JO. I, to this day, still use one of the reskins. This project is also very interesting, because it was not done by one man, but by 6. The Clonetroopers had to fight in an uncomfortable type of armor during the first years of the Clone Wars. That armor is called the Phase I armor and we've already seen it as a JO/JA model - Marz gave it to us in the previous pack. The models were kind of thin, and generally looked... strange. The new version corrects this, and they finally look like they were supposed to. There are quite a few color variations included, red, green, yellow and more. However, I really miss a SWBF1 Jet Trooper (a green clone with a jetpack, that is featured on the ARCs). It's pretty easy to do, too... Oh well. The ARC Trooper are great, lots of accessories, there are actually a little bit too many. You can't turn the jetpack off (coincidentally the very same jetpack that can be used to create the Jet Trooper) . Once again, there are many variants, and wow... They look great... When they're not moving. The legs clip through the skirt, and the pauldron is invisible from underneath. The model and the skins are really great, but these bugs always kind of down-grade it. The clones were given some better clothes later in the war, dubbed the Phase II armor. You could see the designs in Episode III. Noone has ever released a new model of these trooper before, there were, however, a few tries to skin them on a stormtrooper. The basic Clonetrooper is nice, just as it should be. There are quite a few paint jobs available, orange, green, grey, blue, red. They all have scratches over their bodies and are absolutely terrific, skin-wise. Detailed. And there's the Shadow Clone, something pretty new. He's nice, check him out on the screenshot below. There's also Gree, one of the few unfortunate clone commanders. He was slayed by Yoda on Kashyyyk. Once again, a detailed skin, everything as it should be. Next, Neyo! He seems to be an un-mirrored and reskinned Clonetrooper. He's okay, nothing spectacular. Commander Bacara is very nice. However, the skirt clips again! Bly, his troops, and Comamnder Deviss are almost perfect... Almost. Deviss doesn't have his binoculars down, as he should have (he always does in the promo screenshots). The skin is done very well, and will probably be one of my favourites. Along with this one, the 2nd Airborne trooper, sometimes called the "beehive trooper" at various JA forums. I think that he has one of the coolest SW helmets ever. I wonder, how many polies does this thing have? The skin is once again really good. Many people have tried skinning the Galactic Marine (incorrectly called the clone commander in both SWBF2 and this file) on the Snowtrooper model. It finally gets its own, but I can't say I'm impressed with it. It's too fat in my opinion, and the chest could surely be reworked. Next, Commander Cody. A wonderful skin by Darth Cuilerre (I hope I got the name right). There are a few mistakes on the skin. The strap should only be on the left leg, and the belt packs are not correctly coloured. That's because the model is mirrored, which isn't a good thing for non-symetrical skins. And last comes the Clone Commando. I can't say I like the model... at all. It's not like it should be, just take a look. The visor is wrong too... This could certainly be improved. Some of the clones are good, some are not. I miss the clone pilot and a few more variants, like the engineer. Still, the pack is going to be essential in the next couple of weeks and months, so get it or you'll only see Kyles!

The Force Unleashed Pack | 675.12 KB

I'll leave the accuracy up to you, but I find the design to be spot on. The saber half of this mod is definitely a keeper. Normal and backhand versions are available. Oh, and did I mention the animation changes to the backhander? :P [b]Effects[/b] From clashes, to lightning, to saber blades, the overall quality of the effects half is rather good. Personally, I find the saber blades to be the best part, but that's a matter of opinion, unfortunately. :P Overall, a nice little mod, and worth the download if you like that saber! ~Crazy [i]Ah, nothing like a nice and short review, eh?[/i]




Q3E Minimizer | 148.12 KB

he\'s added support for more games, including Soldier of Fortune II: Double Helix for single player and multiplayer and Return To Castle Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory. TiM improved a few more features, and the program probably didn\'t need it, cause it\'s great as-is. However, there is one little thing he added that I\'m not so sure is a good thing. Y\'know when you\'re trying to close a program and it asks you \"Are you really sure you wanna close/quit now?\" and you have to answer Yes or No? Okay, rawr! So now, when you choose to close the Q3E Minimizer in the middle of a game, it\'ll prompt you to make sure that\'s what you wanna do. I suppose I can see the point of having this feature, but still ... grrr. That\'s the only complaint I have, though. I\'m SO keeping this program. (This program has been scanned for viruses and it\'s clean. ) ~AmosMagee[/quote] Now if you read Amy\'s review you will notice that she said she hated the fact that you had to confirm you quit and I hate that too and that’s why Tim took that feature off of the Minimizer. You can now play Quake III Arena, Call Of Duty (SP + MP), Heavy Metal F.A.K.K, STV: Elite FORCE (SP + MP), ST: Elite Force II, JK2 (SP + MP), JKA (SP + MP), Soldier of Fortune II: Double Helix (SP + MP), and finally RTCW: Enemy Territory. Now there is even a Dynamic Screen Resolution Modifier! Good job Tim and I think I am going to keep this, but of course I will forget I have it doh! -XgamerX IKEA!




HS Jedi Customization | 19.79 MB

\"knight\" version and a \"padawan\" version. I find the variations provided here a bit boring, however. You get one style, then color variations of it. Nothing is added as in some other packs, there is nothing \"exciting\" about them, unless you really like having different colors of the same thing. No sounds were included, so if you don\'t have the original models these use (HapSlash\'s Obi-wan and Kevin Coyle\'s Anakin) you will likely just hear boring ol\' Jaden. Personally I think the Obi-wan model has just about been beaten to death now. We\'ve got dozens upon dozens of outfits for good ol\' Obi-wan, and I\'m sure he has about six pairs of the same robes now! Please... move on to something new. We can only stand seeing the same things over and over so many times. Other than the single-player support, which is the point of the mod, no extras. These skins aren\'t even usable without using the customizations creen. They just have looots of colors. Bot Support: No Team Support: No New Sounds: No NPC Support: No ~Inyri




Star Wars Movie Duels

install_star_wars_movie_duels_v1.01.exe | 255.64 MB

admitting powerful opposing forces. This mod is dedicated solely for Single Player purposes, built for those waves upon waves of masses who want to jump in on the key critical prequel battles. Yes, that's right, prequel battles only. Rather despairing for those of us who would have wanted to take on the beastly form of Vader that isn't a total pansy boy. However, I digress; ONWARD TO THE BEEF =_=! First off, it's time to point the bony finger at the technical issues. First off, practically in every campaign sequence, there's a bit of a saber issue: If you cycle to one particular blue stance, whose name evades me, it locks up your stance cycle choices, pretty much =_=. This may make it a little difficult to fight in some already difficult fights =_=+ A small issue with the hud seems to be that the right saber indicator's "MD" is backwards, but that's easily ignored. One final bug to mention: Quicksaving is not exactly a good thing to do for immersion purposes. Why? Well, when it loads, the model you're playing as will usually screw up unmercifully. Worst instance being in Dooku's. Trust me =_= Now then, for the actual synopsis and destructive force of this mod. First off, know that this mod is actually presents you with a number of well-scripted and pretty well choreographed battle sequences, complete with clips from the actual movies. The scenes vary in quality and length, depending on what player you play as. That's right, you have the CHOICE to pick between one party over the other. Which character you play will change the scenario to a varying degree. Each scenario contains a bonus mission that you can use to mix things up with >_>! Behold, the options available to you. Each mission has an Easy, Medium, and Hard setting, which you can view how they affect your battle. For the sake of brevity, I will be referring to the campaign sequences broadly, so as not to spoil the fun, and save my wrists =_= [b]Episode I[/b] [i]Outskirts of Tatooine -[/i]This is a decent recreation of the battle between Maul and Qui Gon out in the desert. This one is a little different in the fact that you'll not actually engage your quarry immediately. In both Maul and Qui-Gon's case, you have to go through a varying amount of Tuskens. Qui-gon sadly has to tote a kid along, albeit he's not much of a liability. Personally, I found this battle to be a little lopsided in difficulty =_,= if you don't play fair. For kicks, I decided to fight Qui-gon with Maul on his trademark speeder. Suffice to say, it was quite amusing to watch him perish. Qui-gon actually got the short end of the stick, because he doesn't have many force powers to defend with. Suffice to say, the bonus mission was a rather amusing twist. [b]Episode II[/b] [i]Encounter with Count Dooku -[/i]Probably one of the best in the bunch next to the Battle of the Heroes campaign that will be explained shortly. This battle is a relatively accurate battle recreation of the final Episode II lightsaber battle between Anakin, Obiwan, and Yoda, as they take on the malevolently awesome Christopher know him as Count Dooku =_=. Anyway, the only oddity I noticed was some of the lousy repetitive combat action in the cinematic sequences. Otherwise, it's near gold, in terms of accuracy. You'll not be disappointed, except perhaps in the bonus mission, I suppose. Didn't feel very inspired, but I digress. Allow me to preface by saying that Episode III was sadly the most fleshed out one. This is understandable, seeing as there were more battles, but something tells me more could have been added to the other two (bare minimum being Duel of the Fates.) [b]Episode III[/b] [i]Rescue Over Coruscant -[/i]The classic battle aboard the invisible hand. A well-scripted and effectively used scene. At this point, there wasn't much worth noting other than the hefty length: be prepared for some serious hardship when in combat, no matter what side you're on. The bonus mission is an interesting new spin on what could have occurred aboard the Invisible Hand. You would be wise to take a look. Short as it is, it's still amusing to think about. [i]Engaging General Grievous -[/i] To preface, yes, you will be going up against all four of Grievous's arms =_,= fear them well, or use them well. This battle I found to be rather amusing, particularly in scripting, as there were some interesting little surprises once the battle got underway =_=. Mid-battle cutscene sequences felt a little dry, but fine otherwise. My favorite sequence had to be the final electrostaff combat scene between the two. Nothing more amusing than going staff to staff =_,= unless of course, Grievous feels like taking potshots upon ye. Bonus mission is okay, albeit not great. [i]Battle of Heroes -[/i]Yes, the ones you EP3 fanchildren have been waiting for =_= *sighs* Suffice to say, this one was probably the most epic, both in scripting, mapping, and cinematics. This battle was pretty much the most impressive, and it took massive works. A rather impressive feat that I noted in the second half of the battle, whilst on the sinking lava machinery, there are bits of ash and lava in the air that hiss against your saber. A nice touch =_,= This one I noted had actual very large differing outcomes, depending on what character you fought as. Whilst playing as Obi Wan gave you the canon ending, an Anakin victory had you...well =_= I'll just let you fight for that. Bonus mission added an odd possibility to the mix of who could attack Anakin. I got exhausted and didn't play through it all, so you will have to find out what happens =_,= Done with all that? Well then, try out the CHALLENGE MODE! Yes =_= a ladder-esque combat sequence in which you can choose what character you fight as, and engage in a series of battles versus different characters, some of which you don't normally see fight =_=. Well, this has all been fun and all, but I've finally defeated the bulk of this mod's content =_= not literally, as midway, I decided to enable the convenient "god mode" button to help speed up the process, rather than get slain time and time again. This mod is quite challenging, and will probably give you great pride in defeating everything. I can safely say that the large file size is worth the epic battles you will have =_,=. BANDWIDTH TO ALL, FAR AND WIDE, OR ELSE I WILL REND YOUR SPINE ASUNDER FOR MAKING ME TYPE ALL THIS CRAP IN VAIN =_= - Averus Retruthan




Battle Over Coruscant | 34.43 MB

fighting, as I quickly realised when my JA game came up with the max vehicles error, and this was with NO extra vehicles in my base folder. So yeah, before you even think about downloading this you'll need to get the 99 Vehicles Fix which can be found HERE or use a mod which does the same thing, e.g JA+ You do get a large sense of scale when playing in the open space area, and although it isn't quite what is in the movie, it's still fairly fun to play online, provided you have some skill flying the space vehicles and can shoot other people down. The FPS was a little iffy, it did drop a little low sometimes, but generally its playable and I didn't encounter too many problems in this respect. The design of the level, is also very interesting as well - You start in a small room with three teleports leading to different hangers, and then you get a ship and go kill somebody ;) Can't say I like those teleporters, not too obvious what they are, look more like infrared beams to me, but I'll let that slide for now :) I guess my favourite ship was the droid control ship, as it is very similar to the one in the movies - pity it's only the hangers you can go into ;) Oh, however I thought the shields over the hangers were there to protect the ships from laser-fire? As it turns out you can still shoot ships through them, which kinda defeats the point but meh. Also, If you accidentally jump ship whilst flying, you'll find yourself in an eternal loop, teleporting from the bottom of the arena to the top, with no way out that I could find without cheats being on. So don't jump ship ;) Oh, there's also a few console errors when you first load the map but they wont affect gameplay. Overall it's a very daring map with a huge scope for atmosphere. I did enjoy the music used whilst gunning down my enemy, but for me a whole map geared around vehicle fighting isn't what I look for. Yes, there are fighting areas but they aren't particularly huge and you need a LOT of people to fill the map up. I think many of you will have fun with this map, especially with the new vehicles included (Theres 12!) But if you're not a pilot I'd give this a miss.

So yeah... get the latest version, even if just because you like to feel on top if things ;) By the way, In case you couldn't tell by the name, this is a small utility which will minimise any games based on the Q3 engine, such as JK3, JK2, Medal of Honor, Quake1-4, Call of Duty e.t.c with a quick key combination. Extremely useful in my opinion, and removed the need to have different minimisers for different games :) ~Szico VII~




bloodPLUS Gore/Dismemberment Mod | 3.46 MB

here. v1.5 - the earlier release - features more of a "splat" variant, which while more moderate than the latter, is a tad more cartoony. I'll give the new sounds one thing to their credit - they sure are squicky. v3.1 differs from v1.5 in that it's more of a 'spurt' effect. Think GTA Vice City after blowing someone's limbs off, and you're not far wrong. Obviously, as with any mod that comes in two versions, only install one at a time. Other than that if you want a bit of 'realism' - or you're just one seriously sick puppy - this one may interest you. It's definitely more vicious than other blood mods I've used. ~ Kouen

than I remember. The new textures are nice. The Blah Room is interesting. Thankfully, many of the teleports are labeled, so you know where you\'re going. There\'s a new nightclub added. And there are some great duel areas added. Now onto what I really was impressed by - the bonus maps. :D The Kill Bill map is lovely. Snow falls all around the place where that famous huge fight happened. The textures I just love, the lighting is great, and it seems fairly accurate. I adore this map. FFA Streets is also a great map and reminds me of a duel map I used to play on. I love that night city look. The neon lights, the buildings, all of it looks wonderful. Oh, and it totally has a ship, just like JK2\'s FFA map NS Streets. Don\'t judge this final version of the Matrix Reloaded by the screenshots, you need to download the map and play it to really get a feel for it.

Darth Maul/Sith Lord | 392.64 KB

sounds to this, which make me so happy :). He says “At Last We Will Have Revenge” The sounds sound like they were taken from the movie, which makes sense. I think he’s mad, maybe its becuase he died. I will never understand that guy, I mean really, why does he wear that face paint? Sigh, anything for appearence. There is no bot or team support, which kind of makes me mad. I dunno why, I just wanted to know what a Darth Maul who didn’t breath and turned blue in the face would look like. There is not much else to the skin. It wouldn’t have been nice to give this skin the option of taking the hood off, that way we can see his horns. It would be nice if he included more to his readme....... like his name!

Dragonball Z Mod JA | 1.98 MB

tell you about what\'s changed and not refer to Dragonball Z at all. Most of what has been altered here are the weapon effects. Unfortunately, none of the weapons themselves or the names of the weapons have changed. Which I think would be something that should be considered for a second version. The effects look great, but I\'ve heard that some of the effects can drain FPS. I didn\'t notice any difference (yay for my upgrade!), but you might. Also, there\'s melee included ... but it kinda sucks. It\'s pretty much the stance of whatever saber you\'re using, without the saber. :/ The author included a melee bot for you to play with. Meh. Oh, and if you turn on cheats, you can fly! Yup. There\'s a pic of it down there so, yeah. I kind of expected more from this mod, to be honest. I was hoping to see different models as weapons and some skins and stuff. Pretty much, it\'s just weapon effects. Hopefully there will be an update to this mod. How accurate the mod is to Dragonball Z, I don\'t know. You guys tell me. :) ~AmosMagee

The moves are reportedly smoother, there are improved effects for the new moves, forces and attacks, better management of the new JA+ items such as the flamethrower and grapple hook, RGB sabers and much, much more. Anyway, this is a very customizable mod overall and if you're going to be playing on a JA+ server anyway, you should get this client side plug-in for all the other nifty little features. :)[/quote] This version includes all of the above, as well as the new JA+ sabers, holsters and effects.

Episode III Palpatine | 6.95 MB

version) skins, but the ones that I found weren't perfect: One had a good model but not a great skin and decent sounds, one had a good costume and face but whose model was buggy, and one had a great lightning-scarred face, but the author explicitly stated that he disliked the costume. So, I took these three and put them together into one non-robed Palpatine skin that I think is good. As for the robed versions (Darth Sidious in red and black robed with hood), I found two great skins that just needed sound.[/quote] Rather straightforward. The author makes it clear that he has acted as nothing more than a 'rearranger', and properly credits all the original authors in his read-me should you like to look up the original files. Now to be honest, as I was reading the read-me I couldn't remember what the heck Palpatine was wearing at these individual parts of Episode III. However after looking at the skins here they look pretty good. Despite the fact that I personally thing the original authors could have done a much better job on the facial textures, the arrangement of the graphics here seems to do ol' Palpy justice. So if you're looking for another Darth Sidious or Senator Palpatine skin to add to your collection, see if these float your boat. Also don't forget, the author has included Sidious' saber in this pack as well, with both single and staff functions! Not a bad looking saber, actually, and I'm pretty picky about my sabers.

Final Fantasy VII Advent Children Weapons | 4.84 MB

first I was skeptical as to how accurate or detailed a mod like this could be could be. Boy was I wrong. Each and every weapon is finely crafted as accuratly as the author could, using only a teaser trailer as source material! The short of it is this, Final Fantasy 7 was a groundbreaker in '97. Now, this next year, Squaresoft is releasing a sequel movie to the game that they are calling Final Fantasy 7: Advent Children. Currently only teatrical trailers exist, which is where the author got the screenshots and designs from. Lets review the lineup shall we? Here is a weapon that has been done over enough times to make me sick: the Buster Sword. In fact, I am sure that it has been done over in every game to use any sort of melee weapon of any kind. With each revision the author would forget the shine, not put the holes in the blade, forget one small detail or another. This revision has nothing wrong with it whatsoever. He even fine-tuned the wrap on the handle of the sword. Second we have Vincent's Alastor. Vincet was a rather dark, somewhat vampiric charachter in the original Final Fantasy 7, who weilded a wide variety of pistols. Given, the weapon does seem to fit Vincent's personality, even more so with the crackling lightning, but I do not know why the author protrayed it as a veapon of this particular charachter. Perhaps he has inside information on FF7:AC than the public does not? ;) The 4-Point Shuriken was the choice weapon of Yuffie, a ninja/thief. My only dispuite with it is that when throw, it spins on its axis instead of normally like a throwing star. The Masamune. The weapon of Sephiroth. Most likely, the most legendary and well-known bad guy in video game history. The Masamune can be weilded normally, using all three styles, or backwards. When weilded backwards, the game reverts to staff animations and movements. Now we hit three weapons that I am shady on. First we have the The Double Sword, a twin-bladed katana that can also be weilded backwards. The Velvet Nightmare is interesting, its a combonation of a small cutlass and a pistol, even though it does not fire with this mod. Though that would be something nive to see in later revisions. The Dual Hound also eludes me. It seemd to be a close-quarters melee weapon that does kinetic damage on impact. The author has cleverly adjusted the hit animation so that the each hit looks like a repeater grenade detonating. Finally, there is Cid's weapon, the Spear. This weapon isn't fancy, but its accurate, and a solid hitter. Much like Cid himself. Another small thing I noticed is the skin used to demonstrate in each screenshot. This skin, though just a reborn model, is also a charachter hinted to in the FF7:AC video. I would like to se it released as well as a full weapons modification pack later on. Hell, you could get away with making a full-blown mod out of this! Great Job! New Sounds: Yes New Models: Yes New Textures: Yes New Animations: No Known Bugs: None -Sared




Darth Revan From KotoR | 803 KB

skin, I have no idea if it looks just like Darth Revan or not. I couldn\'t, for the life of me, find a picture of him anywhere! So I\'m just gonna take the author\'s word for it, and believe that this is exactly what Darth Revan looks like. The skin has a very muted look to it. Maybe that was intentional. I like it. The red and blue skins for team support are just what you\'d expect. Nothing fancy here, just red and blue, respectively. There are no new sounds, just the plain Raven ones. The author mentions that it makes sense because you never hear Darth Revan speak. Well, wouldn\'t it make more sense to include a couple of silent sounds? An update to include those sounds and bot support would be nice, I suppose, for those who really like this skin. :) Bot Support: No Team Colors: Yes New Sounds: No ~AmosMagee

Of course, Shroom had released many maps prior to that, such as the Clan WoV map, Hail the Boognish, and many more obscure maps. Well, it has been 11 months since we have seen work from the Duck. But now that JKA has been released, [b]the Duck is back![/b] And Shroom brings his personal vision of what the death star really should have been. Sit back, and enjoy the ride. As soon as you enter the map, you are greeted with a techno mix of Darth Vader\'s music. Somehow, the music fits the traditional Shroom style of... eclectic music. :D The main hangar area looks similar to that of the hangar area found in JK2, except this one has more goodies. For instance, in the middle you will find the Millenium Falcon. Look at the ceiling and you will notice a large tube jutting from the ceiling. It\'s a stormtrooper dispenser! It doesn\'t appear to serve any real purpose, but it is rather hilarious when you drop a stormtrooper over someone\'s head! Perpendicular to this module is a button that allows you to open the bay doors, and do some exploring on the outside. Not too much to see out here, but if you wait, you\'ll see a tie fighter drift past. :P Scattered about the rest of the maps are various control rooms, and down in the depths there is a generator room. Did I mention that this is Shroom\'s first star wars-flavored map for JK? If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought this was a default map that Raven made for JKA. But it isn’t! It is exactly how the Death Star should’ve looked and functioned in JK2. So nice to see the Duck back in action. I can’t wait for future map releases for JKA! Keep ‘em coming, Shroomer. :D ~Lord Griever~ [b]New textures – Yes New Music – Yes Bot Support – Yes[/b]




Jedi Academy Minimizer | 31.38 KB

Also, there\'s a feature that will display a clock in-game so you don\'t have to minimize to see how many hours you\'ve wasted playing JA. :P So if you\'re looking for a minimizer for Jedi Academy, this is like, a minimizer and you should download it. :D ~AmosMagee




JA Bonus Maps from Raven

jabonusmaps.exe | 13.53 MB

community! Raven has delivered 6 little goodies for Jedi Academy. Shall we open our gifts? :D Let\'s open the little one first. Little ones are usually jewelry ... hehe. Ah, a gem of a duel map. It\'s appropriately titled Coruscant. This lovely map has three levels for dueling. The lower area is where you\'ll spawn, the middle level has a few catwalks and some pillars to make dodging saber swings a bit easier and the top level is a narrow walkway that will make for some fun duels. Never look a gift horse in the mouth, right? Well, I may regret saying this, but there\'s only one spawn point on this map - which caused a bit of an issue for me and my bot. Regardless though, it\'s a great duel map and I enjoyed playing on it. The first three screenshots show you what this map looks like. Now let\'s turn our attention to the next gift - wrapped in silvery blue and dark red paper. :) It\'s a CTF map called Rift of Shadows. Both sides are mirror images of each other, of course. The bases have these large circular platforms that are surrounded by these huge, sharp teeth-like things. Look at the screenshots there, you\'ll see what I mean. And at the top is this spinning ball with electrical charges all around it. Very cool indeed. There are two ways into the base, which makes it easy to defend. But the base is large, so flag runners will be able to slip in and out quickly. :) There\'s also this lovely little area to hide and snipe those flag carriers right above one of the entrances. And don\'t be daunted by the maze below the other entrance - it\'s not as dizzying as it may appear. You\'ll also find some secret passageways in the dark halls with good weapons and other little goodies. :) What I found most impressive was the cavern with the water under the bridges and that waterfall/fountain. Love that. The lighting, the fog, the crumbling bridges ... I really like this map. It\'s a well-balanced CTF map that looks great. (There are 9 screenshots of this map below.) And now onto the next present from Raven. :) This colorful FFA map, Gas Mine, should be familiar to those who played Single Player. This is a great map for a frenzied FFA. Some of the towers have several levels, and others are just perfect to use as shields from a wayward rocket or a sniper perched on a roof. Even without weapons, you could have a fun FFA on this map - especially for those force who- er, force users out there. ;) I\'ve only included three screenshots to show you guys because this map, as you can probably guess, it looks pretty much the same from all angles. :) Oooh ... and that fan at the bottom there of the last screenshot, yeah, I\'m fairly sure that\'ll kill ya. I did when I fell, but I may have had low HP, dunno. The Fortress is the fourth map that Raven has given us, and it\'s like, the complete opposite of the last map we looked at. The four screenshots I included show what a bright and pretty map this is. :) Rays of sunlight pour through holes in the ceiling here and there throughout the halls of this map. There\'s a bit of greenery to be found growing in odd spots throughout the map, like high above where it\'s definitely a tight squeeze, but it makes for a perfect sniper area. There are also some holes in the walls around the map in some places that would be great for snipers as well. The map is bright, but there are a lot of shadows cast in corners that would be ideal places to hide and wait for an unsuspecting opponent. :D It\'s a simple map, with great gameplay. :) Oooh ... and there are destructable pillars! YAY! One of the great things about these maps is the variety. In the last map I told you about, there was plenty of room and everything takes place outside, but with this next map from Raven, it\'s far from organic and there\'s a lot less space to maneuver in. Conquest of Byss is a beautiful map with several levels to choose from. Take an elevator up and hunt for your favorite weapon, or duel on the bright blue force shield thingy at the bottom of the map. A fun duel would be at the very top where holes in the floor make for a precarious fight. :D Oooh ... and the pyramid glass is breakable. Yay! (There are 5 screenshots of this map down below.) And, of course, I saved the best for last. The final gift for us from Raven is the FFA map Ord Mantell Canyon. It\'s a dark map, but the lighting is perfect. Outside you make your way around many buildings that are built into the sides of mountains. The paths and the buildings themselves seem to be falling apart a little. There are canyons with shallow puddles of water and small drips coming from the rock ceiling. Somewhat hidden between two tall building is a waterfall that spills over into a small pool of water. There are many places to explore and this, I think is my favorite of all the new maps that Raven has released. :D (There are 8 screenshots below.) Each map comes with bot support, of course and there are some new textures, it seems. This was a delightful little surprise to find in my Inbox this morning and I\'m so glad we have some more solid maps to add to our servers. :D Enjoy the maps, guys and Raven wishes you all Happy Holidays. :D Bot Support: Yes New Textures: Yes New Music: No Game Types: Duel Map: Duel & Powerduel CTF Map: CTF FFA Maps: FFA, TFFA ~AmosMagee




Final Fantasy VII - Midgar | 128.64 MB

with it out of the way. First off, it took forever to load. The load time is right up there with some of the load times for HL2, and those take forever. Another problem was that I didnt have the best framerate out there while on this map. However, that could be easily fixed if I lowered the graphics settings a bit instead of running em on the highest settings. There are many new models included, such as brand new chocobos, the motorcycles from Advent Children, the Turks, Tifa, and Yuffie. While the models were well done, I thought that the skinning on them could have been a bit better, especially on Rufus. There is also two additional pk3s, one being the One Wing Jetpack, which contains a new jetpack and teleport effects, and one being the First Sword pack, which includes Cloud's swords from Advent Children and a holster for all you JA+ users. Now onto the map itself. It is a very well made map, if you ask me. It has everything that I would like in a map, and more. The first place I visited was where I spawned, in the Highwind. Well made map, and true to the ship from the game, with the exception of the stairs that took you outside in the game took you to a teleporter room here. While wanering around the ship, I ran into Yuffie. Being the person I am, I shot her, and proceeded to get attacked by her... :/ Anyway, I took care of her and ran up to the teleporter room. I was given four choices: Chocobo Farm, Battle Square, Shinra HQ, and Sector 7. I decided to hit Battle Square first. Once there, I noticed that the text on the floor in the circle had been changed to fit what was said in FF7. I hopped up, and pressed the button to spawn the bots. I do a series of battles with various characters, including some Turks, and Sephiroth at the end. Once I amused myself by throwing them all into the deadly surrounding liquid, I took off back to the teleport room on the Highwind. This time I take a turn to Sector 7. I hop down, look around, and head to where anyone would head: 7th Heaven Bar. Who should I find there, but Tifa herself? Once I check out the bar, I head up to the pillar that was blown up in FF7 to bring down the plate. Nothing particularly amazing here, besides how close to the original game it is. Wandering around more, going through the Train Graveyard and sewers, I eventually wind up at Shinra HQ. While it only has the top levels, it is still a great place. At the top is the presidental room, where I found Rufus, and at the bottom is a garage filled with motorcycles from Advent Children, along with a passage leading out to the highway in Midgar. After getting lost many times, not to mention crashed into and killed by passing vehicles, I wound up in the Chocobo Farm, where I found the brand new chocobos, which I immediately fell in love with. I also found the Zolom that Sephiroth killed by a cave that leads to where a golden chocobo is locked into. I'll leave it up to you players to figure out how to unlock it. :p Somewhere along the way I found myself in Aerith's church. I was half expecting myself to find Aerith in there, but only slightly disappointed by her absence. Well, I think that covers the main areas in the map. Each of the areas were done to near perfection, all of which are as true to FF7 as you can get while still having a playable map. Now then, go download this map. Even if you do not like FF7, I would still suggest giving this map a download, because it is so well made. Enjoy!

Dual Lightstaff Mod | 87.92 KB

Something ... in my opinion ... that is a bit too powerful and duels just end way too quickly. RED SITH has combined dual lightsabers and the saber staff and created dual lightstaffs. It\'s almost impossible for anyone to penetrate the two staffs, so you almost never get hit. And the damage that the sabers cause is just huge. Also, the author reskinned the staff saber you use for this mod. My screenshot doesn\'t really do it justice. You\'ll have to just see it in-game. So if you\'ve always wanted dual saber staffs, now you have \'em. It\'s just a pk3 you drop into your base folder, but they\'ll need to be uploaded to a server for you to use them anyone other than your own machine. Y\'know? So ... yeah. ~AmosMagee




Olts Male & Olts Female | 19.62 MB

it\'s nice to see someone add to that selection menu. Especially when they add a whole new character altogether. This is the Olts Male. OLTS is a clan, and Lord Vili is the author of this wonderful addition to our site. Included are three new heads, seven torsos and four legs. I didn\'t show every possible combination here, of course, but you get the idea. All of the skins look great and you have several colors to choose from. The detail on the heads is fabulous, though none of the options really look very Jedi to me. Every choice here has a dark, Sith feel to it. There are no new sounds, but with everything else that the author has included here, I\'m not in the least disappointed. If you\'re looking for more variety and you like that Dark Side look, definitely download this file. Great work, Lord Vili! I can\'t wait to see what else you send us![/quote] Lord Vili strikes again! First of all, go ahead and toss your old OLTS file into the recycle bin. This skin pack has both the male and female OLTS races. There have been several additions to the male race so now there is a total of 11 heads, 11 torsos and 7 legs to choose from. The female OLTS race has a mere 3 heads, 5 torsos and 3 legs. But it still gives us more options, so that\'s always a good thing. Have fun playing with the combinations of these heads, torsos and legs by Lord Vili. And once again, I can\'t wait to see what you\'ll make next. :D ~AmosMagee




Anakin Skywalker | 4.48 MB

Now, when I tested the model at the resolution I play at, the nose was a bit angular, but it still looked amazing. The team skins are as you'd expect, so I didn't take screens of 'em. You may recognize the author's name because he's also the creator of the Diablo Barbarian model, the Old Ben model and Londo (from B5). All of those models were just as impressive as his newest submission. There is bot support included and several taunts to choose from. If you're looking for a model to add to your collection, this is definitely a must-download. This will probably be used by many people - so get it. Now. :D Bot Support: Yes Team Colors: Yes New Sounds: Yes ~AmosMagee




Blood+ | 63.83 KB

blood is very good. Some people fall in love with gore stuff like this then this mod might be that one mod that will make you die. When you strike a player it squirts some blood, but when its a true battle it's a bloodbath isn't that delightful! One thing I wish they could do is put new sounds on these things like every 5 kills have it say Monster Kill or something similar. I liked the quality, but when you have the blood mod for both mp and sp it can mess up the quality of graphics so watch out there, but nothing to worry about :). Overall this is great for gore people now if you pass out at the sight of blood then this is NOT for you :). If you love blood like some people that I know then this is perfect for you and when I say perfect I mean perfect! It just splatters all 8 pints (I believe) worth of blood splatters everywhere even on your shoes! The blood stays on the ground and gets all over the walls if you are close enough. Great job Snowgim this is great for anyone that likes blood in their game :). -XgamerX




Mara Jade | 7.67 MB

Mara Jade I\'ve seen. And now, you can have it for JA! Lilandra is releasing this for JA, I\'m assuming with the author\'s permission. It doesn\'t appear as if anything was changed really. So this is the same great model as before, but now available for Jedi Academy users. There\'s bot support, team skins and new sounds. There are also a few different skins included. And you can choose between a ponytailed version or the one with her hair down. It\'s nice to have options. :) Bot Support: Yes Team Colors: Yes New Sounds: Yes ~AmosMagee




Episode III Anakin | 1.9 MB

Anakin as a Sith from the upcoming Episode III. Whilst there are some deemable qualities shown, overall its not really up to scratch. It's probably hard wprking of stills for a film that hasn't come out yet, and especially so for a relatively new skinner, but it still falls in a few areas, mainly the head. So, what's wrong with the head? The hair is the first thing that sticks out like a sore thumb. Whilst I appreciate its probably quite a difficult part to look right, this hair is just plain wrong, and needs to be sorted out. Its misaligned and doesn't meet the skin of the head properly in some places. The face is also off by quite a long shot, as it is in most celebrity skins. However the cloak and clothing seems pretty good to me, despite a few transparency issues with the cloak neckline. There's overall, about 5 different skins, and an NPC. However it lacks team skins andf bot support. Overall I'm quite divided about this reskin. Whilst the face is so off that it couldn't be recognised as Anakin without the robes and stuff, other areas seem perfectly fine, although some higher quality textures would have been nice. There's also a hilt included, but I'm not really up on the realism of that, so you'll have to decide for yourself whether it works or not :) New Sounds: Yes Team Support: No Bot Support: No ~Szico VII~




Atlantica | 143.97 MB

with this map in hands, I can effectively say I've been compensated for mah troubles >_> Forst, background. Conceived for the ::JEDI:: clan by Szico VII, this map, set on planet Mon Calamari, is a soul-harvesting, child-eating, and corn worshiping power house of script, design, and sexy. Seriously, feel free to take a look at the screenshots before reading on if you don't believe me. This map has effectively stamped out all of Szico's predecessors in virtually every aspect. Enough pole-jocking, I say! Let us proceed to a small walkthrough, shall we? To preface, I must note to you all that there are [b]TWO[/b] versions of this map, but both contain the same essential items, save for a couple features. Now then, to start us off on our grand journey, we shall begin with the broad exterior. Starting from an empty landing pad, one can take in and grasp the true beauty of the architecture of the exterior and texture work of the water and skybox. Szico REALLY went all out on this one. It felt like I was really in the middle of Mon Calamari/The Antarctic. The water was crisp, clear, and looked damningly cold. It also blends incredibly smoothly with the skybox, making the map feel very realistic. The skybox suggests that we're sequestered in a valley of sorts, and quite exquisitely, at that. Moving on from the background, we find ourselves staring at a monstrous dome of sorts, with a tower atop it, along with several other jutting extremities coming from outside the dome. This empty pad contains an interesting little device, but I shall save it for later. LETS PROCEED INTO THE DOME. The dome is massive, and made almost completely out of glass. It's quite an excellent observation area. The inside of the dome is what I like to call "rage city," as it has enough destructibles to almost completely wreck up the place. The overhanging lights can be pulled down on top of your opponents and kill them, you can kill the lights to the stairs, the main halo light,knock a monument down, and pretty much own every tree there is with your saber. It's beastly, without a doubt. Looking forth at the other extremities, we'll just glance over at the delicious shuttle that takes off and lands every few minutes, and proceed to the strange little spiral staircase. Inside? A room, with a familiar object of chaos...go ahead and pull the switch, I dares you =_>. I daren't say more, so let us return to the surface! Returning back to our empty pad, we'll finally discuss one of the scripted specialty features: dynamic elevators. Ah, yes, this one's a doozy. What sets this one apart from others other than the earth-shaking scripting? Simple: It's a BEAM-LINE elevator. As the elevator is hailed, you can see the beam path the elevator pad glides along with great ease. It is, without a doubt, quite awesome to behold. Granted, in some angles it looks very 2D, but it can be overlooked for the greater good, here. From this pad, we can either choose to go to the shuttle's landing pad, or to the command tower. Let's go command things, shall we? Once we hit the tower, one must circle around to the next elevator to get to the peak of the tower. Now to call down the next--WHAT?!? WARNING: LIFT RESTRICTION?! CURSE YOU DIRTY AND GLUTTONOUS STAFF. Force users at this point will have to manually climb up the tower(or just respawn there,) and push the crate off the elevator. Foulness, indeed. Afterwards, the elevator works. At the top of the tower is the admin room, a simple room that has more practical value in the RPG version, which will be explained later. Activate the console with the code provided in the readme, and all shall be revealed. See below at the end of the review, as the code here IS customizable. Now, it's time to FINALLY go inside, having left a few unturned stones for you to discover out there later. Retreating to a particular extremity adjacent to the dome, we shall be entering by a contact-triggered elevator. Quite stylish, I know. Step on the arrow as you walk in, and our journey shall begin. Landing in the awesome nexus, there are a huge plethora of doors. Eenie, meany, MINEY, MO! Well, wouldja look at that? A BAR. Hasn't anyone heard of an actual restaurant in this community? I mean you could include a bar IN IT, but RPG'ers needa eat @_@. Moving on, this bar is eloquently designed in the oval structure, allowing for more movement of the bartender. In the corner is a window to one of the most awesome skyboxes I've seen. It makes you feel like you're actually underwater >_> seriously. Anyway, evading subjective fits of rage, lets bail out for the next door into the detention center. Now THIS is what I call a detention center. Forcefields, steel doors, and controlled gun turrets make great security measures, and hurt many feelings. Now granted, it woulda been nice if he installed like, poopers, so people can poop, but hardly anybody lets forth a corn log in RP anymore(at least, in serious RP >_> it's too cool for them.) Anyway, let us take flight from this deliciously miserable place. Oh yes, by the way, please scorn and laugh at Szico for not being able to properly read and spell my name in that screenshot. Whilst that screenshot with my "name" in it was doctored(so I don't have a private cell), I just want to make him feel retarded anyway XD Let's GO TO TEH PARK! WOOT. Moving swiftly on, we come across a deliciously designed underwater park, complete with streetlights, and, in the basic version, NPCS that wander about. Honestly, whatever I say here would be a waste of breath, as it's just miles better to just inhale the visuals for yourself. Trust me, you shall be awe struck, methinks. Now we can finally attack the meat and potatoes of this compound. Moving down a corridor, we can stop by and see there's two...pits? Yes, Szico found it more entertaining to have the players leap down and be carried up in this particular area, instead of actual elevators. Not exactly the most PRACTICAL of ideas, but he at least designed the shaft to be quite entertaining to behold. Dropping down to a soft landing, we come upon a lobby with a malevolent TV screaming and hawking ::JEDI:: and the map. In my initial beta testing of this map, I attacked it in a childish rage, scorning its existance. Suffice to say, It breaks, and >_> can be fixed, although I will explain that later as well. Man, I have a lot of explaining to do -_-; So then, there's a nice lil protocol desk droid waiting for you, his function also being covered later. Heading left, we'll prod and poke the "west wing" of the compound. Walking along the scenic hallway, we arrive at the stairway nexus which leads to the deliciously scripted infirmary, VR stealth training room, and laser dodging training area. Definitely worth a personal investigation, as my words alone cannot recreate the experiences extracted from them. A long stairway across the infirmary leads down to meditation and prep rooms, one of the combat prep rooms housing Szico's pride and joy: Hexagonal Honeycomb windows. I must admit, these are thoroughly awesome, and as such, warrant a soul harvest. The annex here is definitely also worth a look at, as it was beautifully crafted, and features a nice fountain here, along with the vaulted glass ceiling, which is quite priceless. Alright, finally, we'll hit the East wing, which contains the archives, dormitories, and the council rooms. Archives contains something that will be explained later >_> NOW, the council is built like your average council room, save for the laser security and the RPG function that will ALSO be mentioned later. The dormitories are quite awesome, although the beds are ENORMOUS, even the bunk beds. Downsize much? Whew...seriously. and now,intermission.... [b]-=Averus goes to go eat=-[/b] Ahh, most delicious. Now that I can focus on the map rather than eating, it's time to hit some of the more technical aspects. First off, if it isn't obvious enough, this file/map is HUGE, and as such, may annihilate lower end PCs, so beware. Map loading time was like...well, longer than most maps, so I'd suggest finding something to amuse yourself within that time frame >_> Bugs: There's some. I'll just note them in list format. Granted, whilst we had MaceCrusherMadunsus in the server at the time pointing out bugs, truth be told I wasn't listening so XD here's what *I* found/recorded(whichever came first): - Elevator/Annex area: You can jump through the unclipped rock and step into the void. - Some doors may get stuck, depending on how you handle them. - You can see brushes and map objects in certain windows/ceiling windows depending on what area of the map you're in. - (one time deal, but still possible) The beam elevator's console brush disconnected from the pad. - A few hardly noticeable clipping issues with curves. - Certain sounds can be heard globally when they were meant to be local, an issue Szico cannot fix. - There is no mess hall, despite Szico's texture >_> - Doors can kill you >_> rather easily if you're not careful. - Doorway leading to lobby has a few clipping/textural issues(not too noticeable, really.) That's just a few. (I was told there was some z-fighting somewhere although I never personally spotted it.) So now I can finally attack the stuff I've been meaning to save for the final parts of this review, which has taken way too long because of distractions and general fun XD. There are two versions, as I'm sure I've mentioned before, or thought I did...who cares, DEATH TO ALL. [b]Atlantica - Basic[/b]: This is where RP can commence more smoothly, in my opinion. This area is void of most of the following features that will be covered in the RPG Version of the map, and features an expanded bound so you can fly ships within distance of the dome station. Now, to actually hit the cream. [b]Atlantica - RPG[/b]: This is the map where most of the fun is stored, for the most part. You must VENTURE FORTH and gain credits(respawning objects easily attainable in certain areas,) or complete certain missions to gain credits to buy your way up the clearance ladder! Missions include simple tasks like clearing out a hall way to completing VR training missions successfully. Also, whilst you're out and about, you can get the toolbox and boredly repair the broken TV and lamp posts in the park. Here, in a nut shell, is where clearance can be reached: Lvl 1: Freebie granted in the drop shafts. Lvl 2: 50 Credits, purchase at the desk droid Lvl 3: 300 Credits, Purchase in archives Lvl 4: 400 Credits, plus a 10 switch console hunt is in order to activate the console itself. Lvl 5: Admin Control Tower Also, a couple other functions require paying of credits, I.E. the infirmary bacta tank. The last other difference I recall between the RPG version and basic is that now the RPG version has an x-wing in the once empty pad, and the bridge to it can be destroyed. Okay, I've typed far enough




Christmas in WhoVille | 19.79 MB

to the bottom it has the review :). Narrator: Once upon a time there was a small town called WhoVille, with small people and large. It was a cold night and all was fair until a green fellow came out of there. Shroomy Lou Hoo: Amy, when is Christmas Amy: It will be in exactly 20 days. Shroomy Lou Hoo: Oh boy I can\'t wait! Narrator: Shroomy Lou Hoo was always excited about Christmas because he always knew a new map would come out. As Shroomy Lou Hoo finished saying wait! His father walked into the door. HempKnight: Hello Shroomy, Hello Amy. Shroomy Lou Hoo: Hi Daddy! Amy: Hi Dad! HempKnight: Where is mom? Amy: She went Christmas shopping. HempKnight: Very good it\'s always good to get a head start on gift-wrapping. Narrator: In WhoVille they had a few things to worry about... The one thing they worried about was the Big Bad Green Grinch. He was a mean one, and a green one. He was 5\'6 and had a plan to steal Christmas. *Ring!!!!!!!* Shroomy Lou Hoo: CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!!! Narrator: Shroomy Lou Hoo was so excited that Christmas had come. He ran to his sister Amy and then ran to his Father and yelled and screamed that Christmas was hear, but it was 2:00 AM, but that didn\'t stop him from going to the Christmas Tree. He ran to the Christmas tree to see the big tree there. It was covered in ornaments and candy canes. Shroomy Lou Hoo\'s mother was outside putting up the final decoration lights for the WhoVille \"Who Can Light Up WhoVille!” Their next-door neighbor had always won the competition, but this year was different. Meanwhile The Grinch was working in his cave with his dog Plague. Grinch: Hmmm, *Rubs hands together* What can I do to ruin those WhoVille people\'s Christmas Plague? Plague: Woof Woof! Grinch: I will write up a plan that will destroy Christmas forever! Narrator: The Grinch worked on his plan all morning until 10:00 AM. He worked and worked thinking of all kinds of ways to make a plan. Once he finished it turned out to be a map of WhoVille. Grinch: This will work perfectly! Narrator: The Grinch then went lower into his cave to go see if he could find something to wear to go to the party that he was invited to. Little did the WhoVille people, The Grinch was going to light the party on fire! The Grinch found clothes to wear and went down to WhoVille to go to the party. Meanwhile in WhoVille Shroomy Lou Hoo was wondering what The Grinch\'s cave was like. He decided to leave when his parents and sister went to the party. Shroomy Lou Hoo: Bye Mom, Bye Dad, Bye Amy! Have Fun! Mom, Hemp, and Amy: Have fun! Narrator: Shroomy Lou Hoo got ready to leave his home in search of the cave. He went up the hill and as he was going up the hill he saw another part of WhoVille that he never went to before. It was beautiful, it had snow falling and many houses there were animals he had never seen before called a TaunTaun. There were about 8 of them in a small pen for you to go play with. Next to them was this huge ride that lifts you in the air and you can see all of the land. Shroomy Lou Hoo was so amazed he went and made little snowmen around the place and he then saw the giant ramp and slide. He yelled AWESOME! And ran to the slide, he slid down and was launched in the air then magically put right back where the ramp began. Then he went on the slide it was green with a clear top so you can watch everyone go weeee! That one teleported him too right back where the slide was once the ride ended. Shroomy Lou Hoo then saw a giant door and decided to see what was on the other side. Something strange about this part of WhoVille was it was isolated from all the other parts of WhoVille it was separated by beautiful snowy mountains. Shroomy Lou Hoo passed the large doors to see the houses. Almost all the houses were locked except for one, he walked into the door and noticed a fireplace and two comfy chairs that did not like they came out of a Dr.Suess world. Shroomy Lou Hoo: Oh what a beautiful place, but where are all the people? Narrator: There were no people there because the Grinch had scared them away a long time ago and no one ever dared to go back up there, and Shroomy Lou Hoo then figured out what the Grinch would do to the other WhoVille. So Shroomy Lou Hoo ran out of Whoville and went up the mountain farther and farther until he reached The Grinch\'s cave. He went inside and looked around the cave and he saw the Grinch\'s dog, Plague, he began snarling at Shroomy Lou Hoo and Shroomy Lou Hoo began talking to the dog. Shroomy Lou Hoo: Good little doggy. Plague: Grrr! Woof! Woof! Shroomy Lou Hoo: Here is a piece of meat straight from my pants. Plague: :) Narrator: Plague ran up to Shroomy Lou Hoo and wham! Shroomy Lou Hoo smacked Plague over the head with his shoe. Shroomy Lou Hoo: Sorry little guy. Narrator: Shroomy Lou Hoo then had a time of bad gas and just kept letting some gas out poisoning the walls of the caves so when the Grinch came back he would be poisoned hopefully. Shroomy Lou Hoo ran around the cave until he came upon a paper rolled up. Shroomy Lou Hoo: I found it! Lets see what it says. :O He is going to light the giant Christmas tree in Whoville on fire!!!! What can I do!!! Narrator: Shroomy Lou Hoo thought and thought and he finally came up with a plan he went and whistled and 2 giant Kiebler Elves came to help. Kiebler Elf 1: Ho, Ho there little guy what do you need? Shroomy Lou Hoo: The Grinch is going to Steal Christmas! Kiebler Elf 2: You mean that Canadian Grinch? Kiebler Elf 1: No you idiot he’s talking about the green one that Dr.Suess made duh. Shroomy Lou Hoo: *Sigh* never rely on Kiebler Elves to do the job they are shipped from Indonesia. Narrator: Shroomy Lou Hoo had to run down the hill to WhoVille. Once he got to the bottom he was covered in snow and he ran straight to the party. Once he got to the party he broke out into a song. Shroomy Lou Hoo: You\'re a mean one, Mr. Grinch. You really are a heel. You\'re as cuddly as a cactus, You\'re as charming as an eel. Mr. Grinch. You\'re a bad banana With a greasy black peel. You\'re a monster, Mr. Grinch. Your heart\'s an empty hole. Your brain is full of spiders, You\'ve got garlic in your soul. Mr. Grinch. I wouldn\'t touch you, with a thirty-nine-and-a-half foot pole. You\'re a vile one, Mr. Grinch. You have termites in your smile. You have all the tender sweetness Of a seasick crocodile. Mr. Grinch. Given the choice between the two of you I\'d take the seasick crocodile. You\'re a foul one, Mr. Grinch. You\'re a nasty, wasty skunk. Your heart is full of unwashed socks Your soul is full of gunk. Mr. Grinch. The three words that best describe you, are, and I quote: \"Stink. Stank. Stunk.\" You\'re a rotter, Mr. Grinch. You\'re the king of sinful sots. Your heart\'s a dead tomato splot With moldy purple spots, Mr. Grinch. Your soul is an appalling dump heap overflowing with the most disgraceful assortment of deplorable rubbish imaginable, Mangled up in tangled up knots. You nauseate me, Mr. Grinch. With a nauseous super-naus. You\'re a crooked jerky jockey And you drive a crooked horse. Mr. Grinch. You\'re a three Decker sauerkraut and toadstool sandwich With arsenic sauce. Grinch: How Dare you! Everyone behold this is a match! I am about to light this Christmas Tree on fire and no one can stop me! Narrator: It seemed to be the end of Christmas for the Who’s, but it wasn’t. Shroomy Lou Hoo: You will never be able to the tree is plastic moron. Grinch: Impossible! I planned it all out! Shroomy Lou Hoo: Exactly I went into your cave and got the plans and I see this little map you had of the old Whoville. *Gasps in the crowd* Mayor ColdCanadian: What are you talking about Shroomy Lou Hoo? Shroomy Lou Hoo: There is another WhoVille full of fun and games and a few houses. Mayor ColdCanadian: So, what did The Grinch do to the old WhoVille? Shroomy Lou Hoo: No need to call him the Grinch anymore I also found his Birth Certificate. His real name is James Volbi. Mayor ColdCanadian: Wait, James Volbi where have I heard that name before… that’s right! You’re from Whoville! You were born on Christmas Eve and never liked Christmas as a child and still you don’t! Volbi: You people are too smart, too bad the Christmas tree has melted as you idiots were talking. Mayor ColdCanadian: That’s fine Christmas will always be in our hearts and in Whoville. Also Shroomy Lou Hoo please tell us about this wonderful place called old Whoville. Narrator: When Mayor ColdCanadian said “Christmas will always be in our hearts and Whoville” Volbi’s smile became so bright everyone says those words opened his heart and made him realize that Christmas is not about gift giving, but being with family. Shroomy Lou Hoo: Well, it is a great looking place. It was made by Onobi Foondu and he did a really good job. It has this thing called bot support so you can add bots! Then when you go its playing awesome Christmas music I was swinging back and forth. There was this giant free fall looking ride and I kept going up and down on it. There was one house that I was able to go into and there was a fireplace and two couches, but they didn’t look like Whoville furniture they were too blocky. There were little Frosty the Snowmen around the place and Candy Canes that were crossed. There is a giant slide that you can stand and run through and then when you reach the end your about to fall on the ice and it teleports you straight back onto the platform where the slide started from! Then there is this giant ramp that if you go down it, it launches you into the sky and you teleport back up when you hit a certain level. There is a smaller ramp for the little people too. There were these strange creatures called a TaunTaun and I rode them down the slides and it was fun! Then there was even a welcome sign! There were even new textures that were made for the map it was so cool! I really want to go live there so maybe we can all migrate over there! Then we can have FFAs! It’s even surrounded by mountains with a nice sky and beautiful lighting. Last, but not least there was even a Ski lift! So you could go and check Whoville out, it was really really really cool. I really liked old WhoVille it was awesome, I think I shall call it the Whoville! Narrator: Well, Christmas did stay in their heart and all the love of Christmas filled the air and it fixed the Christmas tree and almost all of people in WhoVille moved to the new WhoVille including Volbi. Volbi lived with Shroomy Lou Hoo and Volbi’s dog Plague lived with them also. They all lived happily ever after and Shroomy Lou Hoo got his first light saber for Christmas. Volbi got the best thing ever Canadian bacon. Amy got an “I like em big” gun for the whole family to use and that night they all saw Santa flying to Canada in his newest sled The Canada 2000. Happy Holidays everyone! The End Hope you All Enjoyed the Story. -XgamerX New Textures: Yes Bot Support: Yes New Music: Yes! Game Types: FFA




Spider-Man 2.0 | 2.1 MB

though you can't really tell from these screenshots. You're just going to have to download it and see for yourself. The Gray Fox model really was the best choice for this skin. There is bot support and team support included for this skin, but no new sounds. *gasp* How can this be a gift to the community if you don't complete the skin!? Sounds for this skin are really easy to come by so I totally expect an update to this skin sometime soon. [/quote] Elandain thankfully read my review and decided to send in 2.0 complete with sounds! The skin had team support before, but I didn't take screenshots of what was there (or maybe there was no difference, I don't reall). The team skins are simply all red or all blue. And the colours seem a bit muted, but they look good. The sounds chosen are straight from the movie and work perfectly. Even that "With great power comes great responsibility" or whatever that line was that was burned into our brains over and over again. Great job here!

Melee Mod | 5.78 MB

thud...thump...thud...thu... An evil smirk peers out from under glistening eyes reflecting a shiny blade dripping thick purplish-red blood. "You are weak!" After several expletives, I hit the "ctrl" button and reload the level. Almost done, and some sith goes Ginsu on me. For those of you who have been with us since the beginning, you remember all the various ladder mods we've seen. The "original" ladder mod, House of Madness, The Dragon Remix, The Emperor's Courthouse, The Emperor's DeathStar, The Challenge in Jedi Valley, and the The Xmas Story. Now comes Jedi Academy's first ladder mod, but totally forget everything you know about ladder mods. Because this is more than just fighting enemies who get harder and more numerous. Slice, Dice, & Mince have given us over 30 different melee weapons to choose from. Not only that, but this mod is MP compatible also. Although they may have re-used the original ladder mod map, the battle now rages with swords, maces, axes, scythes, and several more lethal hand-to-hand weapons. Instead of rambling on and on about what is included, I'll simply list them in the "pros" section. Disclaimer: This mod is not for the faint of heart, slow, n00b, or anyone who can't stand the sight of blood. You live fast, and die faster. Also, you need the patch to play this. Furthermore, make sure you unzip it to your \\GameData\ folder. This is by far the most impressive submission I've seen in all my time at I hope to see much more from these guys. :D Technical Data: Pros: 1. A plethora of new weapons, including the ability to fight with your hands and feet (melee) enabled. 2. New NPCs. 3. New graphics/textures. 4. New sounds. 5. Blood, blood, and more BLOOD!!! MUWHAHAHAHA!!! And gore! 6. Quick-start MS-DOS batch files (.bat) that allow instant access to SP and MP with various settings (See readme.). 7. Bind configuration files that can be executed to enable quicker access to commands. 8. Much more!!! Cons: 1. Some of the weapons in the .pk3 aren't available, and most aren't skinned. (Watch for an update.) 2. Your player responds weird when you die (doesn't dismember, but plays the dismember animation sequences, so you pretzel.) Rating: 10/10 JEDIofONE :mepimp:




JA+ V2.1 | 2.55 MB

distribute! 1.8 see's several improvements, a lot of them bug fixes, stuff like emotes being buggy. Speaking from a mapping perspective though I do have a problem with emotes, in my latest map I made a dialing Stargate and fans will know the wormhole blast kills you if you go near it...if a person uses an emote they can be in front of the gate as it activates and they'll be just fine...I think this mod would benefit from a mapper being able to work around emote's being a protection. The previous review(s) anyhow: Quote: -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Okay, a cascading quoting thing of reviews... or something: Quote: -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- My review of the last version of this mod: Quote: -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I happen to know for a fact that JA+ is a very popular mod and it continues to grow in popularity. I'm just going to go over a few features that were added to this version. Clan Speak: How cool is this? There's a clan password that you set and now clans can chat privately via the console. It's like the /amsay feature, but you don't have to be an admin to chat here. New Emotes: There are a few new emotes included like amdie, amkneel and amfinishinghim. Toggle Amthrow: Now admins can control which players can amthrow you. New Admin Commands: Included are amrename, amlockteam and amforceteam. Very helpful commands. Also, there is a little issue when your server.cfg has too many sets - apparently, this mod corrects that. All of this is new just for the 1.5 version. The 1.4 version has a lot more too. So take a look at the readme to find out all about what the author included. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Slider is quick with his updates to his JA+ mod. Version 1.6 includes the ability to scale your model, there's are new DFA's, you can allow or disallow the use of black names, several new emotes, and all of the old ones have been recoded. There are a ton of fixes and even more added features. In fact, just read the readme. There's too much to list. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Slider once again updates his very popular JA+ mod. There was apparently a nasty little bug that would crash servers with the use of force push or pull. No idea what that was all about - but glad it's fixed! Very interesting little thing added to help control a server. Now players can vote whether to sleep another player or not. Of course, this could be abused just like when you enable voting to kick another player. But it still might be useful on servers where there are some honorable regulars without admins present. Along with that new vote type, you can also, as the server admin decide which vote types you want to allow the server. Maybe you don't mind the players choosing the map they want to play on, but you don't want them voting to kick anyone. That's a great feature, Slider. And yay! Ampoll was added! This would be perfect for my CTF games. Often I just use ampsay to take a vote. There's a ton of stuff here, so read through the readme for all of the features that Slider included in 1.7. It seems that his mod keeps getting better and better. I wonder what he'll have for 1.8? Or maybe this is the final version? Nah ... mods like this are never really finished. ~AmosMagee -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Go those build up of quotes!...and I say JA+ V on the site so it's not over yet -WadeV1589- [/quote] Okay so this is the Windows/Linux server side version of the new JA+ Mod same as usual there are bug fixes including animations. Also there are two new force moves! One called Sith Kiss which is the same as drain. I do believe that this is the SP face grip thingie, didn't look at this part too much myself. There is also a jedi only skill called force whirlwind which is used in close range to knock an enemy back. Static emotes are working again now, so you can't run around while sitting, new anti vote spam and anti macro spam and a load of other stuff which is included in the readme. -Mithran- (You can find a plethora of screenshots here: ~Amy)




Ninja Mod | 3.91 MB

is an incredibly bloody mod. So if that\'s not your cup of tea, steer clear of this. Otherwise, download it and play it a bit - even with just a few bots. It\'s a great mod. Usually when I test something, I just play for a few minutes, but I spent a good half hour testing each weapon and I had a lot of fun playing it. Quite a few things have changed. You have no force. But trust me, you won\'t miss it. The game focuses on melee and weapon combat. There are some great new special moves for melee and for some of the weapons. There\'s this one move with one of the star thingies, that is just a lovely spin move. You have to see it. Not sure there\'s a screenshot down there of it - but a screenie wouldn\'t do it justice anyway. The HUD has completely changed - for the better. There are no pickups, so there\'s no point in running from your enemy. You can throw your weapon, so if you\'re a good aim, you could probably chop someone\'s head off in one toss of a blade. This is a great mod that revives JA somewhat for me. If you\'ve grown weary of the same old sabering, give this mod a shot. It might breathe new life into an old game for you. :) ~AmosMagee




Darth Malak Version 1.02 | 1.5 MB

(I hope that\'s right, if not, I shall keel Rhad) is finally modeled and added for Jedi Academy players. I have no idea what he really looks like, but this model is so non-descript, I kinda hope the character doesn\'t really look like this. The red team skin is the same as the default skin and then there\'s the blue one. There are some new taunts and other sounds included and bot support, though the author claims there are some issues with adding a bot. The biggest issue I came across was the saber. This model holds the saber and swings it much like that old Mandalorian model - remember that? It really bugs me. I would only suggest you download this model so you can offer suggestions for some changes to the author. Otherwise, wait for an update.[/quote] Looks like the author fixed a few things on this model. The eyes aren\'t so dark, and some weighting issues were corrected. The model still doesn\'t look that different than before, but you might want to download this updated version. :) Bot Support: Yes Team Colors: Yes New Sounds: Yes ~AmosMagee




!SoS! Skin Pack | 20.87 MB

used and they are all selectable from the player menu, or the custom species menu. Some of these skins are from JK2, some are new, it\'s just a big skin pack of all of Darth Algar\'s skins for his clan. There\'s no way I\'m going to name them all, so let\'s just go in order of screenshots. :) 1 - The Rodian here is obviously Sith in his dark clothing and markings. It\'s a great looking skin that gives the Rodian a little bit of polish and takes away that ... I dunno ... that utilitarian look that Rodians always seem to have. 2. I have no idea what model was used for this skin. But I absolutely love the shoulder shield thingy in the back. That\'s just too freakin\' cool. Other than that, I thought the face was just a bit too dark. 3. Padme gone Sith. She still keeps that sweetness about her even dressed in shiny leather (er, that PVC stuff, right?) and in spite of the glowing red eyes and dark tats on her face. 4. Probably one of my favorites of the females included in this pack. The Twi\'lek has an ethereal quality about her. She\'s still very evil-looking, but softer, too. The light blue tattoos all over her body are almost like veins. 5. Meh. This skin kinda bugs me. That\'s Anakin, right? With the really pointed chin and really broad shoulders. There\'s just something that bugs me about the face of this one. It looks too goth for the clothes he\'s wearing or something. 6. Okay, I have mixed feelings about this Kyle reskin. I like Kyle all Sith-like and stuff. But the tag on the front, mixed with the skull (I think) on the arm, with the Batman-esque painted on mask tattoo - blah. 7. Desann reskins are sometimes my favorites. I love to see what people do with the lizard. In this case, the author attempted to make him even more evil with a skull on his chest. Meh. I like the rest of the skin, but the skull thing just seems too cliche to me. 8. I do believe this is probably Darth Algar\'s personal skin. But don\'t quote me on that. He seems to really favor the Zabrak, so I\'m assuming it\'s his. It\'s a very simple skin, with the focus on the white face with some very nice artwork. 9. There is just something about this skin that bugs me. Maybe it\'s the focus on the breasts and how unnatural they look. I do like the clothes and the face tattoos, but the bodice just annoys me. 10. Okay, creepiest skin ever. The shader is very cool and you can like, peer into this Sith\'s evil soul and ... yeah. *shudder* 11. This is such a great Austin Powers skin. The suit is perfect and he totally looks like him. It\'s just a modified version of the one by Shadow Blight. Love it. Great job on this skin pack, Darth Algar. :D Bot Support: Yes Team Colors: Yes New Sounds: Yes ~AmosMagee




MagnaGuardVM | 6.35 MB

because it\'s my job. Let\'s start with the good parts, though. A lot of detail went into this model in terms of skinned on parts versus modeled on parts. That is immediately noticible. The skin also seems relatively accurate, depending on which pictures you look at. Some pictures I saw looked blue, as this does, and some didn\'t, but that could be due to lighting. I did find some areas of the skin to look a bit strange, as if Mars had used the sponge filter on it, which he may have. However overall the textures look very good when the entire model is taken into account. So the flaws. Yes, even Mars isn\'t perfect. If he was I\'d wonder if he was an android or something. First flaw - shoulders once again weighted independently from the body. I do have to admit, though, with an automaton that\'s probably a better choice. It still bothers me, though, to see the area were the shoulder would normally be attached when the arm moves. Next flaw - very evil stretching in the upper torso during many animations. There problem here, though, is that the animations in JA are first of all quite hideous themselves, and second of all are not designed for a being that doesn\'t bend, like a robot. However the stretching could be more subtle, but unless you\'re looking for it you probably won\'t notice. I was impressed by the cape, though. No, it doesn\'t move realistically, but I\'ve come to believe that\'s impossible in the Quake 3 engine. This cape deforms amazingly well with the given animations, as well as I think may be possible in JA. There is a bit of clipping here and there around the left shoulder, but for the most part it doesn\'t clip. Overall, a well-done model that I\'m sure you\'ll all be more than happy to download. Well made given the restrictions of the engine. Mars was also nice enough to include a modified version of Hatrus\' electrostaff, which the bots use, so if you have an older version of the staff you may wish to use the version Mars has included, for the best experience.

Darth Vader | 1.49 MB

popular (in my opinion of course), Mars has captured Vader PERFECTLY in everyway from the shine on his helmet, the real-like textures on his cape and the metal parts on the suit, it all looks marvellously realistic. It was a treat to go into the game and run around in game with this fantastic model, it's a model that everyone would surely like, even if they don't use it they'll download it. The sounds are there, when you roll he does the whole machine-breathing thing, there are team colors, an unmasked version, which looks amazingly accurate, and even a white Vader version! This is a true treat for anyone who plays this game, Mars and Psyko have done an awesome job. Download this or I will have to use Level 3 Force-Poke-With-Stick on you. New Sounds: Yes Bot Support; Indeed Team Support: Yeah! -Rink




Captain Jack Sparrow | 2.05 MB

see that Captain Jack Sparrow can be added to our Celebrity Skin category. The model Ravage used seems to be the best fit for this skin. The hair, the clothes, the face - it all looks great. The team skins are just what you\'d expect - red and blue versions of the default skin. The sounds included are taken straight from the movie and are perfect - though I can\'t quite tell what is said on one of the death sounds. I played a bit with the bot, and he\'s quite chatty. As you\'d expect, there are many one-liners from the movie that really defined Sparrow\'s character. :) I\'d have to say that this is one of my favorite skins for JA, so far. I\'m keeping this in my base folder. :D Oh, and yes, I do know Ravage, and no, my review isn\'t biased. If I were biased at all, I\'d give Shroom a good review on his Otoh Gunga map - and that\'s so not happening. ;) Bot Support: Yes Team Colors: Yes New Sounds: Yes ~AmosMagee




Jedi Academy SDK (MP) | 6.22 MB




Saber Realism | 8.74 MB

let me cover the basics of what it changes:[list][*]manual blocking[*]slowed combat speed[*]one-hit saber kills[*]massively increased automatic blocking (for compensation to the above point)[*]new saber sounds[*]other stuff listed in the read-me which I didn't get a chance to test (so read it!)[/list]My favorite bit here is the slowed combat speed and the increased blocking. It's a filmer's dream! Not that I make films... :p. Anyway, I am talentless when it comes to JA, but I managed to have some pretty awesome looking fights using this mod with only a mere reborn. So anything that makes JA cooler is a bonus in my book. Then there's the "realism" angle; after all, it's in the name of the mod! Does this make saber fighting more realistic? [i]Yes![/i] When was the last time you saw [i]any[/i] Jedi take 10 hits with a lightsaber before going down? Puh-lease. Is this increased realism a good thing? That's debatable. I like it, because I think despite the one-hit-kills it's still quite balanced (which is where a lot of similar mods fail). When he says blocking was beefed up, he really means it. In case it wasn't clear earlier, there is still automatic blocking. The manual blocking is in [i]addition[/i] to it, and it works as advertised (read the read-me for that). If you want to use this mod in multiplayer, though, you're going to come across a few problems. I'm guessing, based on the batch file, that this mod was designed for SP. In MP some notable "bugs" are the clash effect doesn't work, manual blocking doesn't seem to work, and (maybe it's just my imagination) but the sabers seem faster than in the SP. Overall it's not really working too well in MP, although you could certainly still use it. The author may want to think about working it into a usable MP mod as well, if possible. Did I mention he removed the red stance? :D (Don't cry, it's supposedly coming back in the next version. Except less ghey.) I have [i]one[/i] gripe. The sounds! No, they're not bad. They're just... well, the most common swing sound is like... a fast swing sound. And none of the swings are fast. It bothers me. The author better fix/change it or I'll cry. :p Now if that isn't a [i]minor[/i] gripe, I don't know what is... Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go play through single player to see what else has been changed. :p ~Inyri

Syndicate: Initiation | 24.95 MB

level. It was done really well ... not just the mapping, but the animations and the sequencing and stuff. This is not one of those levels where you just fight a bunch of spawned NPC's. This was quite well thought out. In fact, the whole level is mostly puzzles. I'm horrible at these things. So I did use the walkthrough that was provided (it'll probably be posted by the author later in the comments) and even then I had a bit of trouble with the second puzzle. If you enjoy a good continuing story, a pretty map, challenging puzzles and great production, download this now. I've heard nothing but great things about this mod. And I actually played through the whole level and was quite satisfied with the end. :) Great work guys! ~AmosMagee




BlueIce Twilight | 24.42 MB

saying how large the map is. But this map really is MASSIVE. I cant believe how much stuff Szico has put into this map. You could explore it all day and still not find everything! This is a very snowy map, which I suppose is apt for this time of year, as December is usually known for its snow! Unless of course you live somewhere where it doesn’t snow… In the part of the UK that I live in, we rarely get proper snow. Its usually either mush that falls here, or when we do get snow its only a thin layer that melts anyway after a couple of hours unless its cold enough lol! Anywayyy…it looks like there’s been plenty of snow falling in this map as its absolutely covered in it! I must also say that the choice of base JKA skybox used is very clever. It might only be the night-time one that’s used on the Korriban Multiplayer FFA map, but it fits very nicely with the snow! There are just too many cool (forgive the pun) features in this map to list. So I will try and only comment on the best ones :D Firstly the area where I spawned was a frozen pond type thing. The texture and shiny shader used looked very effective, and being a frozen pond, its really slippery too, so watch your step! However, there’s something far cooler (forgive the pun again!) that just a frozen pond there. There are fireflies, tons of them! The author has really done a good job making this new effect, it really does look like fireflies are hovering around the pond, and it looks very scenic :) The choice of music for the map is also excellent and adds to the scenic atmosphere. The main area to the map is sorta like a little village. There are many small cottages scattered around, a few of them you can even go in. There’s a nice warm fire inside, some furniture, and even a sleeping bag type thing :) The way the doors of the cottages have been scripted to swing open is more like real life and looks very good, afterall how many cottage doors do you see that just slide away into the wall like the doors we are so used to seeing in Starwars maps? Around the back of some of the cottages is a TaunTaun pen, this is a BIG map remember, so TaunTaun’s are useful for getting around quickly! Another thing I like in this map is the Snow covered Fir trees, they fit very well with the map, and there is a nice little area where there is a camp fire surrounded by a few trees. Again very scenic. Lets not forget the Ski Lift and Ski Slope too! Its fun sliding down there…weeeee! *crack!* *crunch!* Owwww… Anywayyy, that’s just the main area, after that there is another area to get to. You get to this via a frozen sewer or river type thing. At first when I saw it, it was covered with ice, and I didn’t think anything of it. Then I jumped on it and *CRACK!* the ice broke and I fell into the water! That was a very cool idea, breakable ice ;) Anyway, once I swam my way through the sewer/river I came out at this shaft where I had to jump up in order to upon this hatch above me. Once out I worked my way out onto this snowy canyon road…with errmmm…an X-Wing at the side? That seemed a bit out of place for the setting of the map! Go through what looks like a boarded-up shaft, wind your way through the corridors and eventually you will find yourself back at the main area! Phew. Errm but that’s not it…there are loads of secrets and other places you can go in this map, including what I believe is a Final Fantasy themed duel room, control rooms, even deep underground through something that looks like a mine shaft! Now, I couldn’t tell you where all the secrets are of course, as well as making the review insanely long, that would spoil the fun :P I will give you some clues as to where to find one of the secret areas though ;) Look around for some padlocked hatches, you can break the padlocks and then press the use button to open the hatches…I’m not going to tell you anymore though, that would spoil the fun now wouldn’t it? Mwahaha! One other great thing was the teleporters around the map, they look incredible when they are turned on. Now it’s a bit complicated to turn them on, basically look for round buttons that you can press to turn them on (I had trouble finding them though, but then again I’m not good at finding things!) Also look for a hidden teleporter behind a brick wall somewhere. It’s a bit difficult to find, but I’m sure you will find where it is ;) Now, onto the things that could have been improved upon. Well the map is extremely high quality, and there was very little here that I thought could be improved upon. However there were still one or two things. One thing was that the boulders scattered around certain places in the map were very jaggedy, it would have looked cool if they were a bit more rounded off. But it still looks ok really ;) And of course, as with any map this size, the FPS in places did drop quite a bit for me. But overall I’m very glad to say that the FPS was very good :) Besides that an absolutely excellent map here! Well done Szico! :) Bot Support: Yes New Textures: Yes New Sounds: Yes New Music: Yes Game Types: FFA, TFFA, Duel, Power Duel, CTF ~Nozyspy~ Oh and by the way, Szico informs me that all the source files for this map are included in the .zip, I’m certainly going to enjoy looking through those, and I’m sure you will too ;)




Naboo Hills | 8.01 MB

the first thing I saw put me in doubt about the map. The map itself is a large open map with a repetative grass texture on it; when the ground turns into rock (under the water) it\'s sudden and doesn\'t take advantage of the fact Q3Map2 can help you make it a smooth transition that you can fully control. Because of the sheer size of the map the author has put in distance cull which because there is no fog is highly obvious and you can see triangles of the terrain appearing in the distance - JA doesn\'t have the best distancecull implementation and this map lets you see just how bad it is. There are two bases on this map for TFFA where the vehicles spawn at opposite corners of the map. These are nicely done especially the naboo palace which has a fair bit of detail and really looks like time was spent on it. I\'m not too sure about this map, the vehicle fanatics will love it to bits but the general FFA player will have no use for it whatsoever because unless you use the vehicles, going from one side of the map to the other takes a very long time.

Saber Selection | 4.89 KB

does just that. Think of it - Jaden with a saber staff during training... Okay, maybe it\'s not [i]that[/i] appealing, but maybe it\'ll spice up single-player a bit. Either way, a useful little utility to have, in case you\'re one of those who still plays single-player from time to time. ~Inyri




Escape: Yavin IV - The Lost Maps | 306.41 MB

conversion. Well, saying it\'s a sequel may not be completely accurate. It\'s really something of a replacement - a totally new story, twenty-five new levels, and plenty of new content to choose from. As it\'s very [i]very[/i] long, I tested the first level fully, and will leave the rest to you. However even just from the first level I can tell the quality is way up there. The puzzles are difficult, the levels, even on the easiest setting, are challenging, and the cutscenes are very good. The voice acting could have used a little work, mostly in just the sound quality area (a lot of the voice actors just seemed a smidge too close to their microphones), but the feeling of the characters comes across well enough. The author recommends you remove all custom PK3s from your base folder in order for this mod to work. The main reason behind this seems to be the incredibly high number of NPCs in the mod - if you have extra NPCs in your base folder your extensions will be too long and you won\'t be able to play, so keep that in mind. However the mod comes with enough customization on its own that you probably won\'t feel the need to have extra mods when you play it. I\'m not going to get too detailed on the features of this mod, but I will re-iterate a few things Darrow mentions in his read-me (which I strongly recommend you read). First of all, as I said, it has 25 brand new levels that were not included in the original EY4. Secondly, the interface of the game is new, including a \"chapters\" menu for easy level selection and a new saber menu (you can steal dropped sabers! yay!). It seems like after each level you can customize your sabers based on ones you acquired during the previous missions. So it\'s kind of like an \"unlocking\" system, from what I can gather. The TC also sports three, count \'em [b]three[/b], ending sequences, which is sure to keep you busy trying to get each one. So if you\'re one of those types who loves single-player but whines and moans about how bad the single-player campaign Raven included is, here\'s your chance to try something a little bit more involved. However be warned - you\'re not ridding yourself of Rosh Penin! ~Inyri




Clone Wars Cartoon Model Pack | 15.26 MB

gentlemen, cel-shaded and look just like the real-life... actually cartoon-life counterparts! This is done rather nicely by using a small trick - texturing only one side of a face, so it looks like it is contoured from one side and it looks like it isn't from the other. Pretty clever, and it works well. First we have quite a few Jedi, namely Anakin, Obi-Wan, Luminara Unduli, Barriss Offee, Mace Windu, Yoda and Kit Fisto. Anakin looks pretty spiffy, with a nice-looking costume and the robotic hand, which is actually quite good :) It might not be eprfect, but it does get the job done. Obi-Wan is... strange. I don't know, his face jsut doesn't look too Obi-Wan-ish and certainly won't be my favourite, even though I like him in the miniseries. Luminara has a bug that I don't quite understand... Her cloak's front side doesn't appear in my game. It does work in ModView though... Anyway, she is exactly who she is supposed to be - Luminara Unduli. Psyk0Sith did a great job at her, it's one of my favourite models in the pack. Barriss Offee is Luminara's Padawan and appears in one or two CW episodes, along with her master. I don't know why, but it just doesn't strike me "this is Barriss Offee!" when I'm looking at the model in-game. Maybe it was because of her rather short time on screen, maybe it's just me, or maybe it is the model's fault. I'd lean towards the 3rd theory, though... Don't get me wrong, the model isn't bad! It's just that it's not clearly her. And she, by the way, has the same bug as Luminara does. Master Windu in this costume appeared in an episode devoted to him and him only, and in one or two comm transmissions. There are actually 2 versions of this skin, with and without a generic robe. The model is pretty much accurate, but... But... I'm not particularly impressed with the head, it could be thinner, I think the author could do that around the cheek area. Yoda, the little green guy with the funny quotes! He has two robe colors, a dark gray one and a tan one. I'm pretty much impressed with this little person, although the weighting is really sloppy. This model is really just like the Yoda from CW. It has the CW-esque head shape that it didn't have anywhere else. I like that one :) Then we have Kit Fisto, an another green guy, this time with an octopus on his head. He's only dressed in underwear, as portraied in an episode of CW, where he fought against the Quarren. I don't like the look on his face, he should be smiling, that's his trademark. I don't like his taunt either, but that's pretty much secondary. The model itself (except for that smile) is done rather well and you cannot possibly think it's someone else than Kit himself. Next we have the Dark Side people! Count Dooku, Asajj Ventress, General Grievous and Durge... Count Dooku is great, model-wise, I love how his goatie turned out! The clothes could be lighter, they jsut don't seem appealing to me. The cloaked variant is nice, but once again, there is a rigging problem, the little chain goes right through the robe in a weird way... Asajj, the Sith wannabe... I think she's not really new, but still, she is one of the better models in this pack. Nice, nice! The detail on this model is pretty good, considering the need for a lack of detail (animated series animators have to make the character frames as simple to draw as possible). The model is just liek the Dark Jedi I know :) Grievous next! I'm don't like the skin colors (too dark), or the face (looks like a human face enclosed in metal, the chin shouldn't really be pointed down THAT much), but I absolutely love the legs, I've never seen anything simmilar on a JA model, and wow, it totally fits in. Durge, the weird-looking octopusy...thingy. Now here I'm sure I've seen him already, released on his own. Poor Durge. Oh well, the model you ask? It's just like what you would imagine, and that is a good thing! He is bulky, jsut like the CW Durge was, and is really one of the best models in this pack. And last, but certainly not least, come the soldiers... A pink battle droid and a super battle droid for the CIS, and a Clonetrooper and an ARC Trooper for the good guys, the Republic. A battle droid... hm... And it's the pink, post-Geonosis variant. It's also one of the best models in the pack (I might say that ít is the best one) It is detailed, and looks just like it should, with everything working and functional. I love this model. Next, the SBD. The model is very nice and clean, but I don't like the sounds. A bit too high-pitched. I think they do come from Episode III, but I still don't like them. The model is great otherwise, almost perfect :) And now my favourite troopers of all times... Yeah, I do like Clonetroopers :) The model is very, very nice, but the clipping! That's really one of the few weak points of this pack... Now the independent Clonetroopers, the ARC Troopers. They are very, very, very nice and they are my favourites, along with the BD. They don't look like ARC Troopers, they are ARC Troopers! While the model is perfect, parts of the model clip through each another, due to the weighting. Shame, really. To sum it up, most of the models are pretty good, and I do like them. The sounds are not bad either, but there are a few soundsets I don't really like, the SBD one for example. Then there is the weighting. That really downgraded the pack alot, so I would surely try to improve in that. Clipping just isn't appealing. I hope you'll make more of these, this time with better weighting ;) PS: For an even more complete CW Cartoon experience, use the new lightsaber blades included in the Zip.

Sith Council | 30.79 MB

the Sith Council map. [/quote] Incidentally, the version one of this map has had over 40,000 downloads, and comparing the screens between the two versions, I can't see how this one has gotten worse, but then again, not having played the first, I can't say much more about that. What did I think about it? Well, for starters, it's big. Really big. Not as in huge terrains or giant FFA areas, but there's a lot of small, localised areas within the map, as well as a fairly spacious outdoor area with a few trees and a pretty, (albiet very square and unatural-looking) waterfall. I'm gonna start with the music used, as I think it combines with the outdoor atmosphere and the rain particularly well, even though I believe it's from the bit in Episode 6 where Vader dies, but meh, whatever. Every time i died, I spawned back in the main room. That's not to say there might not be other spawns elsewhere, and I hope I was just unlucky, as having all the spawns in the same room would be a bit boring. I'd have to say my favourite area was the cafe, as it reminded me a great deal of a typical university cafe, and I'm all for real-life stuff. I didn't have time to explore all the secrets, but I did work out that a great deal of the main room can become destroyed, leaving a giant lava pit in it e.t.c. Lots of the rooms are very well detailed and made, but of course, there's always a gripe. Some rooms kind of look like they've been slapped on, and obviously haven't had as much effort put into them, plus some are far too dark, most noticeably the bedroom areas, which are pitch black even when they have windows... (Plus I couldn't find the lightswitches, bah!) :( There's also a few missing textures on the toilet handles and stuff in here, and looking out of a few windows you can see bits of map which you shouldn't be able to see. It's an easy error to fix using the system/antiportal texture, or a decent vis blocker, and it's unfortunate this error is here, as it does spoil the views somewhat. Oh, there's also a skin called Kahn in here, wonder where that name came from.. *cough* ;) Anyway, it's a fairly decent skin (based on the Quinlan-vos model, although the hair clips through his shoulders and the textures used on the hair seem a little odd. Aside from that it looks okay, although not very sith-like, as you'd expect with this map. It's also good to see Kahn has taken onboard some suggestions from Amy's previous review: [quote]You press a button and get a weapon or ammo. It's perfect except for one thing - you can't tell what you're getting until you press the button. It would've been nice to have seen some clear labels over each button.[/quote] Now, there's clear identifiable labels over each button, so kudos to you for fixing this. Underground, theres a lot of small, torch-lit rooms for dueling and there's also a scary-looking, but easy to complete jumping room, which leads you to a suspended dueling pad, which was nice. I guess the area which was most lacking in detail was the church/choir singing section. (At least thats what it looked a little like) This area looks just, bland and the lighting was a little nasty, with no viable sources. Naturally, there's also the water bug which isn't really avoidable (with water flowing sideways) and a few other small errors with light-shafts e.t.c but I think they're all very small and localised. To top it off, there's also bot support, and some new models made for quake3. The paths are a little strange due to this, but it shouldn't effect gameplay :) New Sounds: Yes New Textures: Yes Bot Support: Yes ~Szico VII~




All in one saber sounds | 2.73 MB

saber sound mods that I\'ve liked much for that reason. But some people feel that saber sounds like the ones featured in this mod are more \"realistic\" and therefore prefer these sounds. Kudos to Aryyn for giving us some choice in our saber sounds. You have some updated \"normal\" saber sounds to choose from, or go with the more scratchy Sith sound, and if that doesn\'t float your boat, there\'s always the Luke and Yoda saber sounds that have a more \"powerful\" swooshing sound. If you\'re interested in some new saber sounds for Jedi Academy, this is a good place to start. ~AmosMagee

Lord Maul | 5.47 MB

retexturing, all made to appear to be a bit more realistic. To be more specific about the changes, I'll speak about each one seperately. The robed version: I can see no real differences between this version and the original besides how the top of the robe has been darkened quite a bit, and more shadow added to the face. The shirtless version: Again, no real changes seem to have been made besides the darkening of shadows on the body and clothing. The normal version: The only part of this with team skins, though the only change is the color of the belt. For the rest of the skin it is the same for each team and default, which seems to only be a darkening of the clothes and skin. There are new sounds for it, bot support, and npc support, but sadly, there is no single player customization support. All in all, not bad changes, they just did not seem like very much to me.

Movie Stances 2.0 | 2.57 MB

weird. In fact, they seem fairly hmmm ... what\'s the word I\'m looking for ... intuitive. To really gain an appreciation for this mod, you need to download it and play it yourself. More than just stances have been changed. There\'s a list of all the changes in the readme. Check it out. I\'m thinking you won\'t be disappointed. [/quote] The stances have been changed to include a stance from Episode III and a melee stance has been included as well. You\'ll find that some force stances have been changed also to make them more accurate to the movie. I\'m still quite impressed with this mod. And there are probably several of you out there who are such pure Star Wars fans that you\'d prefer the saber stances here versus the ones in Jedi Academy. ~AmosMagee




BDC Racing Club (v1.2) | 19.25 MB

without vehicle errors. But anyway, this map is very nice. It is themed around a huge racing track, but has many many many buildings and arenas to duel in, and just some simple little pads. There are ships of course on this map, as well. The one thing that makes this map really stand out is the detail. The mountains and cliffs are done beautifully, and the things that spawn vehicles are simply intricate and awesome. This is a must download for all you JKA players.

Helm\'s Deep (v2) | 12.05 MB

screenshot. I expected it. Still, when it exploded, I screamed and about jumped out of my chair. But that\'s not all that\'s scary! It\'s raining. And there\'s thunder and lightning. Okay, whenever there\'s a storm like, where I live, I\'m practically hiding under my bed. I\'m such a chicken. Add to that, I read in the readme that there are Rancors in this map. Yeah, so there was no venturing into dark caves for this little girl. The map is beautiful - par for the course, for Nathan. There\'s so much detail in this map and it\'s huge - the tower seems even bigger in this map than his previous Helm\'s Deep for JK2 - but that could just be the lighting that makes it appear so. *shrug* You can expect to have low FPS due to the size of the map and all of the effects. The rain and lightning really add to the ambience in this map. The music is, of course, appropriate. And yay! There\'s bot support included. That\'s probably one of the most important things he could add to his map since playing this map online with a bunch of other people with low FPS is probably not practical.

Final Fantasy VII - Midgar | 38.22 MB

played FF7 or not, I can assure you that this map is worth trying out. The first thing you're probably thinking if you played the last version is, "I hope the FPS is improved" Well it is, alot. I got an average of 35-40 FPS in most areas and thats with absolute max settings (including cg_shadows 2 and dynamic glow, yeah I like it looking nice :D) Anyway, lets start with the map itself, First place I visited was the battle square, which would be the main place for duelers or people who like stuff like that. There is a button that you press and it spawns a series of NPC's that continually get harder (it goes from like, reborn and then a few more to a rancor, and the you'll face Sephiroth :o, it's just one of many of the fun things you can do). Great place to fight. The main area of Midgar is amazing, greatly lit and beautiful to look at, all FF7 fans will recognize the Shin-Ra HQ. This area is fantastic for guns and sniping, since it's large and has great places to move to and hide. The train yard is there and the village, there's a few secrets so keep an eye out for them :P. Exploring the map is great fun, especially if you do it with someone else. The last area is the Chocobo ranch, with RIDEABLE CHOCOBOS!!. They come in different colors and all have different properties (example, the blue one has water capabilities and the red one may have more HP, I'm not sure about this, it's just an example). There is switches that open the ranches doors around the map, they're well hidden, so finding them all won't be an easy task :P. So, you think it couldn't get any better huh? Well there's a realistic Sephiroth model in here too, I give you permission to jump around with joy and stop reading this review here to download it ;). Overall, one of the best maps made for JKA yet. Great music, great lighting, great textures and architecture, it's been vastly improved since the last version and there's tons of stuff to do. I suggest you download it even if you don't like Final Fantasy. There is also a duel map version of the battle square, so if you wanted to put it up on your duel server, there’s no problem. I'll be making sure that this map gets added to my clan's server, I'm sure you all will too! Bot Support: No New Music: Yes New Textures: Yes Gametypes: FFA, TFFA, Duel -Rink

Clones | 1.97 MB

this skin pack is nothing short of extraordinary. Sure, they\'re clones, but they don\'t all have to look the same! The first one is a great looking skin with team support. The two team skins are what one would expect - your vanilla clonetrooper with some red here and blue there. Then there\'s the same clone as the default skin, but with this huge jetpack thing that\'s just very cool. You guys\'ll have to tell me what it does and where it\'s seen and stuff, cause I have no clue. The fourth screenshot there shows a trooper with another kind of jetpack and, dare I say it - shades on? Next is a another Fett look-alike, but without his helmet and another kind of jetpack thing - again, no clue what it is really. :) And finally, a bunch of other clones - another like the default, but with a jetpack and three like the team skins but in white, yellow and green and the last one is ... I\'m not sure what it is. So ... yeah. I counted four different taunts for the clones - all of which sound great. I\'m not sure Mars has ever submitted work that wasn\'t complete, so you can expect to find bot support here. I prefer this skin pack to his last one submitted - it seems to have more variety. I\'m eager to see what else Mars has in store for the community! :D Bot Support: Yes Team Colors: Yes New Sounds: Yes ~AmosMagee




Link skins for JA | 4.17 MB

disappointment to me but I was a classic man. Anyway to the Link skin! This set of skins are very nice, they are both cartoony like Zelda should be but detailed at the same time. I've had these skins for some time now (as you all know there has been a serious back log here!) and I have played using them a lot. They are totally new models (in a sense they are even though this is a re-release of a JK2 model set) with some pretty fine skinning. There are swords included too which were made before the 1.01 patch added invisible blades but even so, if you select a blue saber blade you'll find it fits in well with these swords. New sounds are also included and seen as Link never speaks they are amusing noises he makes, almost as funny as the jawa and photorealistic Yoda sound Bot Support: Yes New Models: Yes New Textures: Yes New Sounds: Yes -WadeV1589-




Delta CommandosVM | 4.6 MB

as he seems to be pumping models out one a week, but somehow he [i]does[/i] manage it, and we can all be thankful for that. I do love the skin on this model. You wouldn\'t expect this guy to be pristine and completely clean - after all, he\'s a combat-hardened warrior - so Mars doesn\'t give us clean armor. It\'s burned, scraped, and otherwise littered with combat scars. I want to give Mars a big hug for attaching the arms to the torso this time. He\'s probably tired of hearing me gripe about that, but I mean it in the best of ways :p. Here attaching the shoulders is ideal, as the large shoulder pads will hide any poor deformations that might occur because of it. Once again, some pretty nasty stretching during some animations, but I\'m starting to think that should be blamed mostly on the animation. The only way I can see to rectify it would be to add another edge loop around the torso, which would unnecessarily add more polies to the model. My one other complaint, about the humanoid head, is that the mouths aren\'t rigged. Not a real big deal, since most people don\'t play SP, but it would have been nice anyway, as it\'s not really that difficult a thing to do. Other than that, definitely a model worth having, even if you\'ve never played Republic Commando. Get it while it\'s hot!

Academy 1.2 | 8.61 MB

But, I'll just start with the first one. The first floor is the ground floor, with three dueling rooms, an npc room, a training room, and a cantina, among a few other things. Two of the three dueling rooms are identical, each with a dueling area and seats so you can watch the duel in comfort, as well as an observation box on the wall. The third on, is more of a hazardous duel area, involving a pit. Although, you don't die when you hit the ground, making it a somewhat safer duel area. Also an interesting one, seeing as the person up top is likely to slash you as you come up. The npc room is extremely simple, almost too simple. It only spawns three npcs, all various brands of cultist. I found one small bug, or rather, minor issue. If you spawn the noc, and then just stand there, the npc will spawn, and the door will open, but it will close, leaving the npc in there. So you have to spawn another npc and then fight them both. This might be seen as a good thing, or a bad thing, to some. I would've The training room, was very simple. In one corner, was a box where you could spawn a sentry droid, in the center of the room was a small area from which you could spawn a R5 unit, or Kyle. Yay! Let's all kill Kyle! There is an observation box on the wall, as well. Okay, now go outside. Yes! There's an outside! It's very spacious as well. It had some custom areas, but a lot of it was bare, as in, there wasn't much there. There were trees, but they just seemed a bit too spread out to me. One thing I did like about this was the waterside area. It was very casual, made just for those who want to sit and talk by the water. I didn't like the way the water was done, at least in the river. But water [i]is[/i] a hard thing to do, so that doesn't really matter. The cantina, was, well, a cantina. Albeit a small one. It had a nice little stage on it, as well as a small bar off to the corner, with a storage room. The main area was taken up by chairs. There were a few alcoves in the cantina, but not very many. And, last up for the bottom floor, is the arena! Great idea. Nothing better than a good old arena. This is a small indoor arena, which isn't bad in and of itself. While great for FFA's and such, it would be very nice, and cool, if you could spawn a rancor behind a gate, and have the gate open. Fight on! But, other than that, it's not bad. Okay, I think that that's about it on the bottom floor. On to the next one! The second floor is a lot simpler, with only five areas. It has an Audience Chamber, as Tournament Chamber, what I think it a teachers area, and finally, an area that leads to the next floor, and the main little entrance area, which is actually the center of the floor. The main little area isn't all that big, it just has a tree surrounded by water. The two areas off to the side are the teachers room, which consists of a few beds and a bathtub. The second area is the tournament room, which is like a dueling area, only with chairs on the side, and a observation box. Not that much. The audience chamber is a lot like the chamber seen in single player, except the windows on the side are huge. I think that they're a little too big. Someone might walk out through the window and die. Okay. The last floor. Yay! I feel like I'm writing a book. First, you go up a long elevator, and then you finally get to the top floor! And it only has two rooms, a council room and a sun deck. The sun deck is very nice, being sunny and all, it's a great place to socialize, get a drink, take a nap, read a book, or use a terminal. And that's what you can do! Great social area. However, the shelves in this area just seemed to stick out like a sore thumb, so that's one thing that could use a bit of change. And finally, the council room. Well, it's a council room, with lots of chairs in a circular area. Am I done? No. There's still the Admin room. It's dark, to say the least. and from it you can lock various rooms, and areas of the map. I would have liked it if, when you locked a room, a ''locked'' message would be displayed. But that's me. I did find some bugs. When the cantina was locked, I would go and press the button, and I would hear the cantina music. Meh. The other major thing was the lighting. In places this was a very dark, or less than ideally lit. But, this is a great map for clans in general, or just simple RPG's. So if you like this, or if your clan could use a nice map to use, then give this a download. Bot Support: Sadly, No. New Models: Yes.

Clone Trooper | 4.37 MB

need to be to tell you how accurate a clone model is. They all look the same to me! There are probably several little details and nuances that I don\'t notice, nor will I ever, because I simply don\'t care to know that much about any character in Star Wars. Well, except maybe Han Solo. Who, by the way, totally shot first. Aaaaaanyway, this is a skin of the Clone Trooper by Izzy. Izzy always makes great skins and these skins are no exception. Not only is there bot support and team support, but several other skins were included as well.

Sunset on Coruscant | 9.21 MB

my first glimpse of what I see to be, the best looking duel map ever created for JKA! :D This map is simply stunning to look at from the screenshots I\'ve taken, and with my settings on full it may have been unplayable, but just look at it. The glowing auras of the buildings, the water fountain and the almost unbeliavebly realistic skybox - This map is literally the most realistic duel map you\'re ever likely to see for Jedi Academy. Yes, the map isn\'t as perfect when you want to play it, because our Graphics cards just wont work with 8x Ansiotropic Filtering and 16x Anti-Aliasing, but still this map is simply awe-inspiring. The use of amazing shaders and effects for the fountain and pool in the center of the platform looks unbelievable, and every texture with the exception of the retail ones are photo-realistic.:D The one downfall is the underside areas of the platform, which can spoil an otherwise perfect view, but fortunately, you usually only see this bit when you are dead. The architecture is similarly spot-on. The shining towers and the sleek curving pillars will blow you away with their detail, and although FPS tends to drop lower than a normal duel map, the design and layout, coupled with eveything afformentioned make this (In my opinion) JKA\'s best duel map to date! :) And yes, it does have bot support.

Jedi Pyramid 2 | 26.36 MB

with the city area. The actual city area I am torn. Aspects of the buildings look very well done such as some of the texturing and the general layout. There are a couple entrances to other areas out there, afew being a small auditorium, a bar of sorts that looks really nice, and an elevator. Now, once you take the elevator to the top, it takes you to an office type room (see pics below). My complaint I guess would be the general lack of detail in the city, along with the abrupt edges of the city that just stop.\" - From first version\'s review. The rest of the review will be different due to the changes the author has made. Now, the general layout of this map remains the same. Upon entering the pyramid, you find yourself in a lobby area once again meeting c3po. From here, there are three different directions you can take. One leads to areas of specialized rooms I think each designed for specific people. Another direction will take you to a form of jedi quarters divided into blue and green sides. The final direction leads you to a hangar type room connected to a medical lab. The difference\'s in the two maps, v1 and v2, rest in the areas of both texturing and lighting. While the outside remains unchanged as far as I can tell, the inside of the pyramid has been slightly altered in spots. Some of the rooms in v1 where very bright in reference to colors while in this version, things have been toned down. The quarter\'s hallways, the council room, and the yellow hallway are prime examples of the changes. The council room is probably the most noticeable and is a great improvment in my opinion. The same things I noted in v1 remain though as far as negatives. Some z-fighting still can be seen and in some areas there is a general lack of detail. And, there are still some missing textures(example-c3po room in the corners). Having said this, I liked v1 and I prefer the changes that have been made in v2, Nice improvments. ~LK~




AnakinVM | 4.9 MB

model as compared to Mars' usual work. The skin was only so-so, and parts of the model deformed horribly. I know from experience that those particular sections are some of the hardest to weight (the shoulders, especially), but I would've expected something cleaner from an experienced modeller like Mars. As for the skin, the hair looks very unrealistic, the hands are a completely different skintone from the face, and the face is blurry. The model is quite good, but it's screaming "rushed!" at me. That said, it's still one of the best Anakin model's I've seen. And trust me, with all the reskins lately I've seen a lot of them. Because we are the lucky group we are, Mars has given us bot support, npc support, and movie sounds. There's team support, but the team skins are the same as the default skin. He also gave us Vader, to go with Anakin, so you can enjoy that model again! This isn't the best work I've seen from Mars, but it should certainly tide many of you over who have been waiting for a good Anakin model.

Zion | 25.3 MB

pool, Hanger, Space Battle Zone \"with one mean Slayer Class Battle Ship\", Wild West Town, Lake with Jet Ski Race Track, Fluffy\'s pen, multi duel room\'s and more. (quote of readme there). The simple fact is it\'s huge, there are lots of places to go and a lot to do. Visually the map isn\'t always stunning, many areas lack detail, [i]however[/i] the good use of lighting (except the occasional dark spot) and some of the structures are simply stunning. The main area is the large corridor that connects all the areas together, this has been done simply but quite well, pillars to support the roof, a central raised arch and the occasional statue mean it\'s not amazing but it certainly is pleasant and has space to fight in. The rancor fighting area I think is close to perfect in the way it works; you have a viewing area very high up with glass floors and then small elevators to go down to where the rancors are; the room is grass on the floor with decayed walls; it would have been perfect if the floor had been uneven and there were a few broken stones but you can\'t ask for it all! There is a bar in here that has some music you\'ll recognise, felt a bit like a walk down memory lane hearing it. Also the space idea while not brilliantly done is something different, it\'s fun to say the least and makes an interest added bonus to the map. Mix in with all of this the music, especially in the \'Wild West\' and it\'s a great map. As I\'ve said, it\'s not amazing in it\'s detail - in fact it lacks detail in most places but it is a good map for many other reasons, it\'s just very different in how it looks and feels; my second map this week I\'ve been able to say that about.

Tatooine Scum and wampas? | 8.96 MB

when i entered a building.It was a group of wampa\'s locked in some sort of prison/cage. The hallways are very nice detailed and alot of shader work has been used.Though the doors are rather tricky to open at first. As I walk up to an impressive large building I notice some nice effects like smoke *Thumbs Up*. and as I go inside the building I find a nice open room with box\'s you can smash open with your saber. Back outside I find a landing pad and some watch towers, perfect for sniping people. And as I go through a large door back to the village part of the map. I start testing some doors from the buildings there.Some doors open leading me to a room with loads of weapons. and another room that looks a bit like an shop for vehicle parts and guns. Then I come to a larger building which contains a very nice bar. with alot of details. and even a little stage. going up on the stairs in the bar I find even more weapons. and little peek holes/windows facing the bar (another nice spot for sniping) as I walk further I even find some sort of toilet! Outside again I also find a very nice Lambda shuttle. where u can go inside. Though u can\'t fly it. In other words:This map is very nice detailed and everything looks smooth. Very original and realistic. This map will be loads of fun to play with alot of people. and also some role playing could be done in here. I\'d have to say Sith-J-Cull you did a very nice job once again. and I can\'t wait to see the Finished part for the MovieBattles Mod. And the Textures, Terrain, Shaders, Effects are perfect. -Buffy- Botsupport: Yes New Textures: Yes New Music: Yes Game Types: FFA , Team FFA




I Was A Teenage Jedi | 18.56 MB

Mara Jade (or a reskin of her anyway), Darth Maul (and some reskins of Maul), Kit Fisto (the Nautolan) and other familiar models and skins from JK2. This is not much more than a replacement mod. And you all know how I feel about those. :P The other things besides replacing models and skins that I noticed here was the ability to use dual sabers instead of one, without using cheats and you can choose a red saber. *shrug* What I like most about this mod is the name of it. I\'m sorry, but it\'s just a replacement mod that had some textures/skins missing here and there and a few errors scattered about. Though this may be of value to those who want to play through the single player JA game using a model or skin from JK2. ~AmosMagee




Darth Maul as Jaden | 1.72 MB

SP again just so I could be Darth Maul. Though, it does have a certain irony to it, Darth Maul as Jaden. Darth Maul ... training to be a Jedi. Darth Maul ... apologizing for offending someone!? HA! One very good thing about this is that you have a few different Maul looks to choose from. So at least there\'s a little variety there. As with other JK2 models that have been dragged along to JA, not everything works the way it should. The mouth does not move with the dialogue and there are some issues with the dual sabers. Bottom line, though, this is a good SP replacement mod, as far as SP replacement mods go. :) ~AmosMagee




Revan Dark Star Wars Hilts | 7.74 MB

been redone to death, these are probably the version you\'ll want. I must say I don\'t think I\'ve seen many hilts that were done better than these. I personally can\'t see one big one that\'s missing: there\'s Yoda, Anakin, Dooku, Maul, you name it, it\'s there. I like these because they have single-player support. That means not only can you use it in multiplayer, but if you\'re one of those strange people like me that still plays single-player, you can use these sabers there as well. The shaders were done very well, also. The result is a pack of 14 beautiful-looking hilts that look great in-game and out. I\'d definitely recommend this if you\'re a hilt buff. If not, I\'d recommend it anyway. They\'re a gorgeous bunch of hilts. ~Inyri




Jedi Temple | 22.95 MB

areas portrayed in this map simply weren\'t shown in detail. Most of this is either an educated guess or an artistic liberty, portraying a version of the temple the author likely visualized using confirmed details as starting points. To put it simply: the whole thing strikes me as a kind of improvised dealio. With that said, though, the map is still a jolly good, epic little hangout. It has all the features one would expect. Hangar, council chamber, grand hall, another grand hall (this one with a skylight), a medical room, the archives, a briefing room, and one hell of a lot of bloody passageways. Everything has been properly textured and shadered, however unlike it\'s most recent rival in the high-end mapping scene (The Enclave), very few base resources have been used here. Dynamic glow has been utilised for good effect in shader lighting, which is a nice touch. Possibly the thing which impressed me most, however, is the skybox. They\'re certainly not easy things to create, I assure you. Every minor detail seems to have been covered, including the Gunships in the hangar (you can even sit inside them!) and the lights on the walls. I\'m also glad to report that there are no visible errors for me to draw attention to. However, there is a lot of wasted space. The map is far bigger than it needs to be, and it\'s just so empty. This will cause problems for those with low-end rigs. My GeForce FX5200 was pushed to the limit, and in benchmarks this card even held it\'s own against a GeForce 7600GS. God only knows what you\'re letting yourself in for if your computer uses any GeForce older than mine, or any pre-2005 Radeon card. Your FPS [b]will[/b] die in quiet a few places due to the size and emptiness. Low-performance systems with low vid settings will also encounter the Hall Of Mirrors effect. The map may not have any errors, but expect some hardware homicide. Either way, what we have here is a finely-crafted, epic map which is a pretty decent representation of what the full Jedi Temple may well have looked like. Wander around, marvel at it\'s size and architecture, etc etc. Just don\'t expect it to run as fast as, say, Jedi Council GCX or Academy v2. ~ Kouen [b]Bot Routing:[/b] No [b]Custom Textures:[/b] Yes [b]Custom Music:[/b] Yes [b]Custom Models:[/b] Yes




Far Cry of the Jedi | 8.58 MB

if you’re interested, let me know. Thanks for reviewing Far Cry of the Jedi, Shroom! :D ~Amy ----------------------------------- In his readme, Sith-J-Cull says ‘This map should not be compared in anyway to the game FarCry’, but I think this comparison is unavoidable. Sure, the ancient Q3 engine can’t bring us even close to the immersive graphics and physics as seen in the game FarCry, but inventive mappers like Mr. Cull here can certainly bring us a hint of the game’s level design. The first thing you’ll notice in this map is the extensive use of terrain. Wow! The terrain is amazing. The second thing you’ll notice is the horizon. WOW! This is the first time I’ve seen a mapper realistically have ground-level water meeting the skybox. Usually one would just have the water in the skybox, and then try to occlude the edges to give the illusion of water stretching out as far as the eye can see. Here, the water itself actually stretches out as far as the eye can see. Brilliant stuff. With a smoldering volcano as the centerpiece of this map, one will find various installation equipment scattered throughout. Radar dishes, towers, landing pad, cables strung across a split in the island, and much more. Sith-J has also included many useable items such as a swoop bike, AT-ST, Z95 Spacecraft and some really well placed turrets. The potential fun-factor on this map is HUGE. The terrain creates a varied and interesting battlefield, supplemented by even weapon and item placement. When this map shows up on servers, ya’ll are going to have a real blast!

Princess Leia | 4.58 MB

I don\'t recall ever seeing the slave model. And now, here she is, in all her glory. There are four seperate, perfect skins. The first one has Leia with her long hair and it looks great! I remember being excited when what\'s-his-face came out with that one model from ... um, was it Farscape? That was just because of the hair, and the hair actually wasn\'t that great. This is great hair right here! In the second screenshot you see Leia in her famous slave outfit. It looks great, and all of the details are included here. The third screenshot shows the classic Leia with her beautiful buns (her HAIR) and finally in the fourth is Leia in her ceremonial costume. StingRay, you did a wonderful job here. Leia is just beautiful and I can\'t wait to get someone to reskin her for me - with your permission, of course. ;) You had absolutely not reason to be intimidated to submit this model. It\'s great. My only complaint would be the colors in some of the skins. I think there\'s one where the reds don\'t match up just right. But that\'s it. Keep modeling!

Jango/Boba VM | 3.44 MB

rather negligible) weighting and clipping issues, this model is quite good. The only real thing I never liked about Mars\' clone models was the heads/faces. They\'re well modeled, and the skin on it is pretty good (although the jawline is a bit too well-defined graphically), but something about it bothers me. Maybe it\'s too round - I [i]really[/i] can\'t put my finger on it. But hey, put his helmet on and he\'s a beauty! The one other thing I found strange was how beat up the helmet was compared to the body armor. It\'s almost as if Jango let Boba play with the helmet some and had it returned after being pelted with small objects moving at high speeds. Anyway, you don\'t want to hear me complain about the little stuff. If you\'re a detail kind of person like I am you can find teenie weenie inconsistencies yourself. All models/skins have them. It\'s what makes them interesting, and if a model or skin was perfect there would be no reason for anyone else to ever try to make them, and that would just be boring for everyone. In the [i]big[/i] picture this model is a beaut. I\'ve loved Jango since I played Bounty Hunter on my PS2, and this model really captures him quite well, so long as his head stays firmly planted on his shoulders. I was a little disappointed when I discovered the chest plates were just painted on, but quite frankly I didn\'t notice until I was about to comment on how nice they looked, so I guess that\'s a moot point. In fact quite a few details on this model are simply \"painted on\", but if you can tell at first glance you\'re better than I am. If you can\'t tell, does it [i]really[/i] matter? In my opinion, no. I can complain about it all I want, but in the end if I can\'t tell while I\'m playing, it makes no difference to me whether it\'s made of a million polies or painted on a flat surface. Low-poly modeller\'s rule of thumb: if you can get away with it, and it won\'t take away from the model, do it! But wait! There\'s more! Yes, many different variants of Jango: with jetpack, without jetpack, with a different jetpack, with no helmet, with pilot headgear... plus, if that wasn\'t enough, two variants of Boba Fett. Now I\'m not going to comment on Boba\'s accuracy, because he\'s not the focus of this pack and I\'ve had to go look at him so many times that I don\'t feel like doing a comparison, so you can judge for yourself. The soundset is also pretty good. I assume Mars took it from Battlefront2, or some other game featuring Temuera Morrison, because obviously he didn\'t make the sounds himself and no one would expect him to. The only problem with it is that it sounds designed for a clone with a helmet. So what about when Jango doesn\'t have his helmet on? Well, he\'s going to sound a little funny. However to bypass this would mean a big (and pretty much unnecessary) increase in filesize, so it\'s really kind of a lose-lose situation. We do have the works here in terms of extras, though. Sounds, as I mentioned, but also team colors (Jango for blue and Boba for red), NPC support, and BOT support. The only thing I\'d really care about in terms of improvements would be a rigged mouth/jaw. I know it\'s a time consuming thing - my personal least favorite part to weight - but after three or four times it starts getting really easy ;) Anyway, definitely a good model by Mars. The weighting\'s definitely reaching that higher standard I\'ve come to expect from Mars, which I\'m happy about, and the rest of the model just completes the package. I hope to keep seeing work of this quality! I like it when I don\'t have many big things to gripe about :) Bot Support: Yes Team Support: Yes New Sounds: Yes NPC Support: Yes ~Inyri




Temple of the Dragon (final) | 22.55 MB

greeted by a nice looking, petit garden with its own chinese bridge and bench to put my feet up on. The design of this garden is pretty simple however it has detail enough to look nice and would be good for dueling in. You walk into a teleporter that is an image of the council chamber to go...into the council chamber unsurprisingly! I must say this room is nicely done, I particularly like the dragon flag fluttering in the breeze, it shimmers like water. The thrones are nicely done, looking sharp like dragons fangs and as though they are really plastic (I know they\'re notsupposed to be but the environment map makes them look like black shiny plastic which I really liked). In the council chamber though the environment mapping is slightly excessive and doesn\'t work well on the black floor, it is too strong. I entered the first transporter which took me into a small cliff-side rock room which a weird pattern on the floor. I saw two buttons, hitting the one on the left changed the music to a song I don\'t recognise but I didn\'t mind, was quite quiet and I like it when the music doesn\'t sound like I\'m in a concert. I hit the button on the right and then a rancor vehicle appeared next to me..although at first I jumped back and squeeled cuz I thought it was going to attack me (No sleep, I was hallucinating!) I headed back off to the council chamber and then went thru the second teleporter to find myself outside again in what appeared to be the floor of a temple, kinda like ruins of very very old; more buttons to press here to spawn things and change the music. This is a perfect dueling area, flat ground in the centre, little decor around the edge in a nice bright skybox. The next transporter took me into a weird futuristic room where each corner has a bounce pad which is fun when you\'re diving around and accidentally touch one, the wall texture in here was stretched somewhat though and I found that displeasing. Two more buttons here, music again and a reborn spawner - these button respawners are great for those of you on a server with no other people yet. Makes it choosably interactive Finally I went through the last transporter to find myself in no other than a (slightly trimmed down) version of the dojo from the first Matrix film where you could of course spawn someone to kill The only problem with this room was the light beam effects on one side of the room, the walls themselves were not bright so it was effectively a dim wall where sunlight was mysteriously coming through. In this room, you also had the music button but this time, of course, it was some Matrix music which is a very good choice, it\'s one of my favorite Matrix tracks. There are secrets on this map, most noteably the flashing discotheque with funky music known as \"Shady\'s Dragon Bar\". I\'ve always been a fan of bars simply because they are totally unneeded in any map but the mapper puts in the effort to make them anyway for a chill zone. Being a secret they are often declared as no kill zones which pleases many people who believe in nokill area\'s. In my travels I also found what appears to be a secret council room that takes a slight knights of the round table theme and warps it into a dragon clans idea of a council room. The music is very very mellow in here and fitting for the name dragon. There are more secret rooms but I\'ll leave you to find them on your own Overall, a nice map, it may be a clan map but it is a nice map and worthy of anyones base folder. Neatly mapped out, nice texturing and suitable for FFA, tournaments and dueling as well as those of you who are plain bored and want a fun mini world to explore![/quote] The only difference between the JK2 version of this map and this one is that the one for JA took the same concept used for music in each room and made an NPC generator in the rooms. So you can fight a Rancor, a Wampa or just a Reborn with a staff saber, if you want. It\'s a clever idea and works well for this map and the way it\'s laid out. I don\'t know if there was bot support in the last version of this map, but there is now. I couldn\'t find all of the secret areas, I don\'t think, so good luck to you. :) This is the final version of this map, so I can\'t wait to see what else Night Shade has in store for the community. Hopefully more maps. :) Bot Support: Yes New Textures: Yes New Music: Yes Game Types: FFA ~AmosMagee




JKA Saber Hilt Pack (v2.0) | 4.77 MB

for you to choose from. If you played JK2 then most of these sabers here will seem a tad familiar. I'll just give a few words on each saber. I will be listing them in order of the screenshots. Desann: We should all recognize this saber, carried by the most lethal lizard/dragon Dark Jedi thing. Enjoyed by many in JK2 and now available for JKA! Stinger: Can't say I've seen this saber before, but I'm not one to download many sabers to replace the default ones ... so ... yeah. It came with the Desann one, but I'm not sure who credit goes to for it. Seems like a fairly plain saber. *shrug* Strider_Fellowship: No info included on who the author of this saber is. It's a good lookin' hilt and will look better as a sword without the saber glow thing. Luke: This is a saber hilt from a pack by a guy who did none of the saber hilts either. Yeah. I'm thinkin' this is just Luke's saber. Then again, I don't pay much attention to the hilts. Oniwan: Before you even start, I know that looks like a typo, but it's not one by me! HA! That's what whoever made this hilt called it. It's his typo! Decent hilt. Dooku: From the same guy who gave us the Luke and Oniwan hilts, here's the Dooku hilt. Wildly popular, I saw this hilt everywhere in JK2. While it looks like good craftsmanship, I can't stand this hilt. Maybe because it's curved like that, I dunno. Personal preference, I guess. Yoda: The final hilt from the pack that included the last three hilts, this one is called Yoda. Though, I think it looks a tad too big for Yoda. Very plain hilt. Nazgul: And now onto the Lord of the Rings (LOTR) hilts. This first one looks like the kind of sword the Black Riders would carry. Dark in color, sharp at the points. Looks like it could inflict pain on someone no matter which end you swung with. Morgul: A dark city in Mordor, Morgul (actually Minas Morgul) had this hilt made with its namesake and I think it fits its name nicely. Small and unassuming. Glamdring: Ah, Gandalf's sword. It's large and regal and it just really has a presence about it. Nice lookin' hilt. Sting: This helpful little sword was given to Frodo by Bilbo. I do like this LOTR hilt. It has more personality and character than the other hilts I've seen so far. Strider: Strider's sword is big and shiny and quite masculine. Mmm ... Strider. Oh, right, back to the hilt. This is a nice hilt, and seems to be consistant with the other LOTR sabers. Ranger: I'm assuming this sword is fashioned after one that Strider/Aragorn carried, or belonging to one of his kin. It's a great looking hilt and is well worth the download just for this one, I think. Ring_Wraith: Another great LOTR hilt, made with the Ring Wraith in mind. The detail on this sword is lovely, but would be lost in gameplay. Morgul_Sword: Again we see another hilt with Morgul in mind, and its style is very much the same as the first one we looked at. Not much more to say about it. Black Widow: Oops. I kinda cut off part of the hilt there at the front. Well, trust me, this is a great looking hilt. One I may consider keeping myself. It's very evil looking. Yun: Some may prefer the simpler saber hilts and for those, I suggest Yun. It's a nice hilt, decent size, not too big or small, all chrome. It has a solid look about it - if that makes sense. Fierce Deity: And finally, the sword that was included with the Link model. This thing is huge. I mean, seriously. Use this sword and people will question what you're compensating for. No one needs a sword that big! And there you have it. One download ... 18 saber hilts. Is it worth the download? Sure, if you like variety. I would take too long deciding which hilt to use, so I'll stick to the base hilts. [/quote] So what can you expect in version 2? Some typo fixes, more hilts, and all hilts are now in one pk3. WOOHOO! *ahem* Okay then ... here are descriptions and screenshots of the new hilts: Ultimate: Frankly, I can't see why this hilt was named "Ultimate". The word implies something grand and perfect and for some reason, to me, big. It's a thin, small hilt and I do like it, though it's a bit plain. SaeseeTiin: I have no idea what the name of this hilt means, but it's a decent design. Nothing all that unusual about it, but it has a balanced look to it. Kenobi: A lovely saber that's just the right size for anyone. Very simple in its design. Silverbone: This hilt's appeal, for me, is in its clean lines, and smooth silver surface. It's a good size and has buttons. I like buttons. 3dberkoll: I remember seeing this saber and liking it. I'm unsure if it's what it appears to be - glass. I like the design and the concept of a glass hilt. 3dberko: This hilt has a shader on it that makes it seem to glow red from the inside. Love the idea of this hilt. Caladien: For those who believe size matters ... the Caladien hilt. Personally, I just don't like this saber - too big and unwieldy. It's a good looking hilt - just too much for me to handle. Guardian: Darn it. I cut off part of this one in the screenshot. Well, take my word for it, this is a nice looking, average-sized hilt. Love the silver and black. Diago: Grrr. Ran outta room for this hilt too. It's a great looking polished black metal hilt that keeps its design very simple and sleek. With 9 more hilts to choose from in this pack, why would you ever download the old pack? ;) Get this update for more hilts and a few bugs fixed (I think). Good work! ~AmosMagee




Vader VM - Episode III | 1.08 MB

update to that model I believe but an update to the one in the AnakinVM skin pack. This version includes great use of shaders, which is probably the biggest thing about this model\'s skin. The life support box glows and his armour is quite shiney. The helmet was done well, I feel there has been an improvement since the one included in the AnakinVM skin pack.

Clone Wars Stances and Effects Mod | 24.76 MB

honest, some attacks make a shiver run up my spine. Not only that, but there is also added effects, such as, and I quote; New lightning effects, saber blades, and clashing effects. Not to mention new sounds for each of these! Lets start with the Blue stance. I'm not really sure how I'm supposed to describe this, but it seems to be a cross between the art of Fencing and the art of Stabbing at the Ground. As confusing as this sounds, the stance is actually really well done, with a unique spin to it. Literally! The usual Blue Uppercut has been switched around to, what I saw, a series of three spins, all attacking in front of you. This looks slightly silly in the middle of battle, not to mention it doesn't hit everyone around you. That is, unless my calculations were entirely off and I actually did hit that ninja that ran after me... The second portion of the stances involves the 'fabled' Yellow stance. Now, this looks like an honorable position, however is extremely dangerous if put into a real life situation. In short, you hold the saber at a vertical position, what seems to be inches from your nose. Oh, don't get me wrong, the stance looks awesome. It just doesn't seem... practical.... Oh right, the attacks. Most of the swings have been changed, but none so much as the awesome Yellow DFA. Jumping into the air, cutting at the opponents below you, and breaking into a roll has never looked this amazing. Ah, the last of the Single stances. This one is the combination between an axe murderer and a ballet dancer. This stance is possibly my favorite of the three, with an attack that literally caused me goosebumps. You remember the first attack Chancellor Sidi- I mean Palpatine did against those Jedi? Yeah, the one where he spun in a circle, while jumping. Wasn't that cool? I thought it was, which is probably the reason I love Red Stance. The Red DFA has been turned into what I like to call SuperSidious. Now that we're done with the Single stance, lets move on to the speed demon Dual stance. This looks like something out of Soul Calibur, which makes me a very happy person. Alas, that happiness turned into confusion when I pulled up the Dual 'Uppercut'. It seems the player has a tendency to spin their wrists to the point where they would fall off, and they keep going. That confusion turned into happiness again at the end of the first part of the attack, where the user would repeatidly stab the opponent. And it looks awesome. The Dual DFA was harder to pull off, as I was constantly low on my Force power after defeating Raiden, God of Thund- oh, right, review. The user constantly swipes horizontally with both sabers, ending with something I... don't actually remember. I think I was electrocuted right before I did it... Ah, the Staff. Quite an impressive device. Not only can you stab someone in front of you, you can either stab the guy behind you... or even yourself! Jokes aside, the staff has been changed. To my recollection, I remember the stance has been turned into a more docile, calm stance. The Staff 'Uppercut' has been turned into what seems to be a Lightsaber Helicopter. No, you can't fly. It ends with a repeated spinning stab move. The Staff DFA is similar, just without the Helicopter move. This time, the entire body spins in midair, attacking all directions. Whew! So, the saber stances are over and done with, right? Nope! The stances also involve a new walk, which looks amazing if you're into the whole sword-at-side vengeful samurai 'you killed my father' stereotype. The run is the same for each Single stance, which beforementioned samurai can explain, but the Dual makes you run with your arms behind you, and Staff makes you run with the saber in a Bo-staff position. Melee stance has been changed, although it would be extremely useful if the hands were at your side in melee, instead of in front of you. Kinda like idle-saber. To be entirely honest, I never actually used the Force powers, but I did see some difference in the saber. I believe it's brighter, with a more realistic feel to it. The clash effects are gorgeous, especially when I accidently Yellow DFA and decapitate my opponent throught their saber. Yes, I did that on accident... The only few qualms I have are actually quite fixable. First, some attacks look entirely strange, meaning the spinhand in particular. The second one is that melee stance, also fixable with the right coding which I know Hirman has. Finally, the part that this is not an OJP modification like the last ones.

NPC Tool v1.0.0.116 | 1.16 MB

like, 3 am? Yeah, well ... This is a very cool little program that takes you through each step in creating your own NPC. You name it, choose your player model, pick the default skin or one of the team versions, decide the NPC\'s size, pick the weapons that the NPC will favor, their saber color (can be custom too), their saber style, saber length, whether they use the alternate fire or not, force powers, their max force power, their regen rate, their behaviour and a ton of other things. I mean, you completely customize this NPC and it\'s so easy! You just click a box or move a slider over. This program is still in its beta stage, so the author has asked that everyone who does download this and use it, to offer feedback. Let them know about any bugs, or any improvements you can think of. It seems to me that they\'ve thought of everything for the easy creation of NPC\'s for this program, but you guys might find areas where they could improve. So be sure to read the readme so you\'ll know where to send your bug reports and suggestions. Great work guys! [/quote] This update may have changes, but there was no list of changes included, so I have no idea what to tell you guys. :) It doesn\'t look much different to me at all. In any case, I was impressed with the work that was put into this tool. Good work here. :) ~AmosMagee




Younglings | 1.85 MB

Episode II and III. There are a variety of different skins included in the pack, most are explained in the readme, however there is a secret skin that should please a few people.. I don\'t want to spoil the surprise… The model is nice, although there is some clipping, that is understandable considering the model is supposed to be small (remember to use JAplus or another modelscaling mod to scale down the model to it\'s appropriate size), that\'s the only real problem that can be picked out with it. There are new sounds and they\'re so cute! Definitely worth a download if you\'re into Role Play, movie making or just kicking some grown up ass! [b]Be sure to add the following values to your JAplus modelscale.cfg \"youngani\" 0.7 \"youngfem\" 0.7 \"youngling\" 0.7 \"youngshak\" 0.7[/b] Sort of gave the secret skin away there, you can see the secret skin in the center of one of the screenshots.. :P Team Colors: Yes Bot Support: Yes NPC Support: Yes New Sounds: Yes (Beware those cold hearted, even you will be struck with the cuteness of these sounds) -Rink




FFA Bespin (Update) | 3.53 MB

Just a port. No changes made, just good old Bespin Streets FFA! And that is not necessarily a bad thing. Obviously, all the familiar areas make a return, such as the landing pad, the streets themselves, and the rectangular building. There\'s not all that much that can be said about this, as it is simply a port. A most welcome port, however. I find the base maps in JKA to be rather boring, and there is only five of them. The base maps in JK2 managed to stay fresh the entire year and a half I played the game. Bravo, Tysplo! ~Lord Griever~ New Textures - Yes(JK2 textures) Bot Support - Yes New Music - No [/quote] The only thing that has changed with this version is the fact the problem with Rift Sanctuary has been rectified. That\'s all there is too it! This has been fixed by [BLU]LCARS> but the map was not originally done by him as he clearly states in the readme. -WadeV1589-





almost everything about it. I haven\'t played it in a while, but I remember having some FPS issues here and there, but overall, a great map. So, from the same guys who helped create that map, comes a new Stargate map: SG4Real. Upon first entering the map I\'m greeted by a large body of water and the beautiful tall blue columns you see in the first screenshot there. Inside are torch-lit walls and in the center a tall round ceiling. A lovely fountain sits in the middle with, what I believe are sphinxes around the edge. There are bactas everywhere, by the way. Not sure I get that, but yeah. Turn to the right and you\'ll find yourself stuck in a maze. Okay, I was stuck in there because I\'m horrible at mazes. :D So when I came back, I walked down the middle corridor, took a quick screenshot of the murals there. Lovely, dontcha think? So then ... in this next room, I see some circles on the floor and ceiling ... and a button on the wall. Naturally, I had to touch it. And then the ceiling opened up, dropped these rings over me and suddenly I was in this black marble room. :| And then, I find that the black marble goes on and on and on in various hallways. And then I come to this ... (please see screenshot) huge hangar thing. I go in through the door and it\'s like, okay, good place to duel and stuff. Then I go back to the hallway and just look out the window there, then notice the button. YAY! A button! Of course, I press it. It locks the door on the side that I just came through and opens the big doors way out there. Okay, very cool. Eventually, I get tired of wandering the halls and so instead of finding my way back, I kill myself. The next screenshot there should look familiar to those who know Stargate, and especially if you remember the old map. Now, I haven\'t played the old map in quite a while, but if memory serves right, it didn\'t look this good. The detail in this area is really incredible. I know it\'s just offices and stuff, but it looks great. And, y\'know, I had fun just going through the gate thingy because the actual transition is so cool. And the final screenshot there is where you end up ... which is the black marble area. So, do I even need to tell you that I love this map? I didn\'t get to try out CTF on this map, that should be interesting. The map doesn\'t have bot support, but this isn\'t really one of those maps that you play with bots. It\'s more of an exploration kinda map. And to experience everything this map has to offer, you can\'t do it alone - or with bots. So get it on your server and play there. :D Oh, the music ... can\'t forget to mention that. It, of course, suits the map very well. I don\'t usually listen to the music in a map, unless it really contributes to the ambiance of a map - this one certainly does just that. Great work guys ... I can\'t wait to see more from you! :D Bot Support: No New Textures: Yes New Music: Yes Game Types: FFA, TFFA, CTF ~AmosMagee




The Legendary Goku | 6.41 MB

skin should have in order to succeed, when based off a non-original character which in this case, dare I say, is quite well known. Number one: The skin and model should actually look like the person who is on show, and that especially includes the facial texture. Number two: The model deforms correctly and can be selected from the menu. If a file has fulfilled these two criteria, I don't really care how many polies the model has - (hey, my PC can handle it. ;) ) unless of course it’s ridiculously high or ridiculously low. And, of course, when the model by chance also happened to be from one of my personal favorite anime shows, well, then, how lucky is that? ;) I think everybody here will recognize Goku from the images, at least those who have seen Dragonball Z on television. As I mentioned above, that’s a great sign. The textures aren't photo-realistic though, and perhaps are even a little low-res. But it still manages to work with this character because of its style. It's anime, where high-res textures aren't always key. And whilst some may disagree about the hair, I rather like it. It's modeled well on all three of this models forms (That's normal Goku, and Goku in Super Saiyan 1 and 3 transformations.) and I personally think that the almost flat-shades here are perfectly adequate. Now, I didn't notice any deformation bugs when testing, however the readme does mention that some exist, so that may be a factor to consider when downloading. I have a feeling that's probably only relevant in SP mode, which is supported by this pack, but I didn't test because...well, the JA storyline makes me want to hurt things. ;) The sounds were my only main concern - far too loud, and they're all practically identical, but at least they weren't Kyle. I also really liked the facial textures. There was a nagging feeling that they didn't look quite right, but when you wont see the character's face for most of the time when playing, a small personal nag shouldn't be very problematic, and if nothing else, this model is definitely the best Goku I've seen on this site, with the last version of Goku I saw being a rather crude reskin of the cloud model. So I do recommend this for Dragonball Z fans, and even if you're not a fan, you may still find this appealing. :D New Sounds: Yes Team Support: No Bot Support: No ~Szico VII~

OJP Enhanced | 23.61 MB

a new review, as screwing around with said mod a little more allows for more beef. We'll attack some general features first, that will affect all players. [b]General Features[/b] XP System: No longer are points just for strutting around like a chicken whilst you hawk how good you are whilst you secretly cry inside realizing you have nothing better to do than bully kids in a video game =_O Now you have to earn some kills, and gain power =_= each time you join an OJP server, you will have a minimum set of experience points that you can allocate to gain a number of weapons, gadgets, saber stances, and force powers. I screwed around in the Abregado Casino map and gambled for points, and I found that you have to actually kill either a bot or an actual player to gain experience points. General ratio seems to be 3 kills = 1 XP. There are in fact some XP allocation rules(these being but a few): - At certain XP levels, certain stances are locked from the player. - Force Jumpers cannot invest in Jetpack, and vice versa - A player must have 1 point in sense minimum to be a force user. - Certain levels of force user can only invest in one level of gun usage to prevent that "god character" factor. A good thing to note is that if you're in a hurry to get to the real fun, you can skip the whole "Kill, kill KILL, KILL, KILL" and avoid having to stack up all those kills just to get that toy you really want by adjusting the minimum XP count in the advanced server settings. One could also lock certain powers and weapons from here as well, as well as adjust a setting on this: - Timer System: Have trouble with people killing themselves constantly? Chill them out by making them have to wait with a modified siege timer that prolongs spawning until it runs out. Whilst it can be very annoying, it's also very useful for setting points in between bouts of madness and violence. Don't like the timer on your server? Just set 'er to 0 and you can jump right back in. - Holster System: Gunnery is now a more important aspect in this mod(more on that later,) and as such, the team found it appropriate to make things more realistic by coding in a nice system to holster your guns on your character whilst you are not using them. Only irk I found was that saber holstering really doesn't look good strapped to the front of your thigh, nor does it look comfortable. Yes, I'm guessing it's probably the whole "belt" thing, but on most models, it doesn't seem very applicable. - Improved Bots and NPCs: There are some of us out there that don't have the expensive equipment to fight all the time against other players on the internet. Never fear, as the bots have been tweaked to use the OJP saber and gun systems accordingly. Experiment around, as some bots are inclined to use guns, whilst some use sabers. NPCs are now no longer psycho sugar addicts like they were in JA+, and now fight normally. Even the force using cultists do something instead of standing there punching the air idly! A lot of the old functions in JASP work as well. The howler now lives up to its eponymous name(although it doesn't seem to hurt yet.)The assassin droid returns and now effectively has a working forcefield.Even more interesting is that, should you fall to the new NPC AI, most of the time it will actually register as a kill as if you were slain by a player. Example being this most recent one: "Averus Retruthan was blasted by Boba Fett" That was me deciding to let an NPC kill me =_,=. Naturally not all the AI is up to absolute snuff, and there are still bugs to be worked out (I.E. some of the non-human NPC's guns are in the wrong places still,) but it's definitely a 1-up on the older MP AI. - Dodge, Force, and Mishap Meter: One of the more critical elements of gameplay now relies on these three meters. These will control how long you will in essence "live," forcify, and still remain accurate, respectively referring to the above order. More will be applied as the necessary sections arrive. - New Animations: A plethora of new animations from ledge grabbing to a proverbial backhand attack lie in wait for you. Take a look around and see what you can spot =_o! - New First Person view: Gunners and saber users alike can experience battle now from the eyes of their player. Gunners will notice almost immediately that the gun is no longer at like..chest height. You can now look down and see where your gun is, and not feel like a total chode when -CO-OP Mode: Haven't had a chance to try it, but now you can try SP in Cooperative mode =_=! and finally.. - Vehicles: An older, not-as-remembered feature of OJP was that it was going to amplify vehicle functions in some respects. Unfortunately, there's not many functions to speak of on that part, as it seems to have been lost in the quest for saber research, but some vehicles now have some new alternate functions usable only in OJP. The only examples I can think of at this time are: - The droideka can now rotate in place instead of having to back up and go forward like a cheap RC car. (Found in -;31144)) - The [file="53196"]Tie-Phantom[/file] vehicle now has an active cloaking function on it. Interestingly enough, some of the vehicles seem to attack on their own if not possessed by a player. These are just but a few of the new general functions, I'm sure, but hopefully enough to have kept you going up until this point =_= now we shall attack the gun and force user aspects, in that order. [b]Mercenaries and gunnery[/b] Guns have finally returned as a force to be reckoned with. Guns are no longer dwarfed by saber using force users now. Cunning can be used effectively now, with the new gun effects. General features of the weapons include: - Ammo Clips/Reloading: every weapon now has less ammo on the count. Out of ammo? Good, reload =_= - DEMP2, Trip Mines, Concussion Rifle? Locked out unless you use cheats. - As forementioned, all guns are now no longer in your first person view by default. It's now more realistic =_>. - Thermal Detonators now can be thrown with a new bind, so you no longer have to actually select the thermal and chuck it. Range is limited though,so don't try and throw it too far. - Gun accuracy is decided by your level of XP in that slot and mishap meter. High mishap = start missing, even if aimed properly. In some cases, if you're not careful, you can be knocked down as well. Dodge will help you evade some of the more lethal attacks whenever necessary. Now, I'll report the effects of each weapon: - Blaster Pistol: Much more powerful shot. At level 3, you get a second pistol at your disposal, and your alt fire is activated, doing mishap damage to enemies, usually knocking them down if you power it enough. Suggestion: Allow the second gun to be an alternate upgrade, like the speed and ammo upgrades for the later guns. - Melee: Effective and useful when outta ammo. - Blaster: Good balanced weapon with an available rate of fire upgrade. - Disruptor: Power seems to vary now with charging in scoped mode. - Bowcaster: An effective powerhouse, now with available scope function at level 3 and a chargeable bolt (doesn't multiply.) - Repeater: Converted into a DC-15 clone rifle. At level 3, an available ammo count upgrade can be made, and the blob can be now fired at the cost entire clip. Quite effective, as the blob now induces knockdown and acts as an explosive(which will be covered later.) - Flechette: Converted into a T-21 Rifle. Rate of fire controled by your tapping power. Damage is a little weak and sparse, in my opinion. - Rocket Launcher, Thermal Detonator, Detpacks: Weapons of the explosive kind don't seem to actually do immediate damage. If your dodge is high enough, and depending on where you are on the blast radius, you will be knocked pretty far. There's sadly no shrapnel or misc. damage, assuming you aren't knocked high enough where the fall will immediately kill you(a good percentage of the time.) If your dodge is low...well then, your body will be BLOWN TO PIECES AND ANNIHILATED. Now, onto the gadgets: - Bacta: Level 1 earns you small bacta, level 2 gives you big bacta - Jetpack: The jetpack has been reinvented with a new dynamic animation system. Lot more heights can be reached with this jetpack, and quite quick. Runs on fuel, of course. - Cloaking: Not much change. Still runs on fuel. - Flamethrower: huge flamethrower effect that runs on fuel. Quite impressive to behold. - Seeker Droid: Now fires stun charges, and if you hit the Use Item button, your Seeker will detach away from your perimeter and actively seek you out. - Sentry Gun: Setup time required, but is a lot more durable and reliable. - Forcefield: Now lasts longer, takes more impact, and even knocks 'tards who run into it down to the ground. This covers the basics of mercenary combat. Now... [b]EPIC FORCE USER COMBAT[/b] Considered to be the proverbial "gem" of the entire mod by the makers, saber combat has been completely redone, and converted into a powerhouse of cinematically epic system of clashing, pwnination, and strategy. Mishap, Force, and Dodge Points now are tested to their limit. Force controls force attacks, including saber swinging. Low FP = slower swings,less force ability. Low Mishap can result in a slowbounce, stagger, knockdown, or even disarming your opponent of his saber! Also, you have to be a lot more careful in watching you and your opponents movements, as you won't simply just swing and hope it hits. You can now engage your opponent with Shii-cho, Djem-So, Soresu, Ataru, Nimen, Juyo, and Makashi(




Episode 3 Skinpack | 2.55 MB

the Ghoul2 mesh file (*.glm) was not included, only the Milkshape 3D file (*.ms3d). No bot scripting, team color support, or sounds were inculded. Mmkay. Hmm. I already wrote one harsh review, and kinda wanted that to be the only one, but this may turn into a second, so bear with me. IMO, a skin without something as incredibly easy to create as bot support, the basic support of team colors for CTF or TFFA, or sounds to enhance the uniqueness or believability of a skin, is not a skin. If you want to argue that a skin is merely the textures, then yes, you would be right. The skin is only the textures (not the script applying the graphics to the surface of the 3D mesh, or the model of the 3D mesh). To leave out the necessities is like leaving out the *.skin files or the *.glm. They aren't graphics, but you need them for it to work. Beyond that, the skins seem thrown together, with not much thought or planning. :( Technical Data: Pros: 1) NA Cons: 1) Obi Wan's face mesh was poorly UV wrapped. 2) Mace's face doesn't look like Samuel Jackson's, and the white boots and forearm guards were inconguous with the rest of the skin. 3) Yoda model not included. 4) No necessities. Rating: 3/10 Bot Support: No. Team Colors: No. New Sounds: No. JEDIofONE :mepimp:




JA+ Client Side Plugin v1.2 | 2.34 MB

moves! One called Sith Kiss which is the same as drain. I do believe that this is the SP face grip thingie, didn't look at it too much myself. There is also a jedi only skill called force whirlwind which is used in close range to knock an enemy back. Static emotes are working again now, so you can't run around while sitting, new anti vote spam and anti macro spam and a load of other stuff which is included in the readme.[/quote] First of all, you don't need this plugin unless the JA+ server you want to join is a pure server. Then you're going to need to download this. So, why should you download it even if you don't need to? The moves are reportedly smoother, there are improved effects for the new moves, forces and attacks, better management of the new JA+ items such as the flamethrower and grapple hook, RGB sabers and much, much more. Anyway, this is a very customizable mod overall and if you're going to be playing on a JA+ server anyway, you should get this client side plug-in for all the other nifty little features. :)




Omeewan's Jedi Skin Pack V1 | 25.9 MB

well) , two Obi Wans (same as Qui Gon), two Mace Windus (same as Qui Gon and Obi Wan), and Kit Fisto. Consisting of eleven reskins, it doesn't look too bad, and shows that the author put a bunch of time into this. Well the Qui Gon is a reskin of Toonce's JK2 Qui Gon, and it looks pretty good. The tunic has definitely been changed to more of a sandy look, so it looks like he's been out in the desert a while. It is also apparent that the hair has been recolored as well. He also comes in a robed version. The unrobed version has team skins as well, but the robed one doesn't. The Kit Fisto looks to be a reskin of the Kit Fisto from the Clone Wars pack, and I certainly like this one more than I liked the one from the Clone Wars pack. It isn't cell shaded, which is very nice. The textures look very nice, and they give Kit a frog like quality, which is good cause he's a Nautolan. He comes with team skins and purple and orange as well. (Oooh Aaaah) The Anakin reskins are reskins on NeoMarz's Anakin models. The first thing I noticed after comparing the textures is the head. The reskin has a much lighter skin tone, which I must say is nice, the eyes are also a different color. In the sith version only one of the eyes have changed to that freaky orange-red color. In other places it looks like the author has just lightened the skin tone by a lot, which is a small improvement. The hair has also been changed. Both of the jedi Anakin skins have team skins, while the sith Anakin skins do not. He comes in a robed and unrobed version. Which also applies for the sith version. The Obi Wan has a tunic similar to Qui Gon's. Which I suppose is fitting for when he is on Tatooine in Episode One. One of the two skins has team skins, while the other does not. He comes in a robed and unrobed version. And lastly, there is the Mace reskin. He also comes in both robed and unrobed versions. The tunic also looks very sandy, much like the Obi Wan and Qui Gon skins. Again, only one of them has team skins. A very big skin pack. I must say. I think that the author might have tried making the Qui Gon, Mace, and Obi Wan tunics look a bit more different. (Because they look almost identical to me) And while I love shiny things, having shaders on everything sometimes doesn't work out too well. But all in all, it is a very well done skin pack. If you like star wars skin packs or if this appeals to you, give it a download. Team Support: Yes, on some skins. New Sounds: Yes Bot Support: No Npc Support: No ~Zach




Matrix Reloaded (v2) | 26.42 MB

had complaints about. My biggest issue was the FPS. It was hard to have an FFA in the main area because the FPS was so low. Others didn't like how the teleporters were set up because they couldn't remember where the Tea Room was or how to get to the Architect's Room. I had the Matrix Reloaded map on my server for quite a while and people quickly got bored of the map. The only place people really dueled or FFA'ed was in the main area because it was so hard to tell someone where you were or how to get there. The main area hasn't changed at all really. Except I did notice that the FPS there has increased for me. The phone booth teleporters now have signs over them, so you can easily figure out which way to go. :) The power station has been revamped. It's much more colorful than before. That spark that was in the tower thing has been fixed. Though I kinda liked it and hoped it'd stay. Oh well. And a half pipe has been added under the overpass. The Chateau arena has also had a bit of a face lift. And then there are the corridors. They still take you to places like the Tea Room (where Neo fights Seraph), the Matrix-y Tea Room and the Architect's room, with only a few minor changes. The Jolt bar is still up on the roof, but it's had a bit of an upgrade. Oooh ... fun thing added to the roof ... a "Jump Programme". It just catapults you from one side to the next. Oh, and you remember that "flat" from the Jolt bar? It's still there and things have been rearranged in it a bit. But there's a second one. Has a very interesting little area upstairs. Take the slide down and you'll whoosh past a few places that you'll probably want to visit again later. Darn my curiousity. I spent more time on that slide thing trying to get to the various places that branched off from there than I spent anywhere else on the map. Now there are four distinct new areas added. The first one I came across was the Ice Programme. Pretty much it's just an ice rink with a slippery surface. I do really like the look of the ice here. The whole place looks great. Then I found my way to the Kick Programme. Um, I don't get this area. You slide down into that green stuff down at the bottom and it just transports you back to where you began in the program. How is kicking involved? Especially in JKA where we can't kick! Grrr. Then there's the Bounce Programme. Yup, you guessed it - you bounce here. The platform slowly moves up and down and you bounce in various areas on the platform. And finally, my favorite room here, the Matrix Raceway. There are several swoops waiting for you when you transport in and you can race along the bottom, underneath the track or up on the track all around that Matrix-y thing in the center. That green pole thing in the center actually serves as a transporter thing back to the main area. And yes, you can go through on your swoop. Ah, but Nathan was clever and he put in this fence thing so you can't take the swoops out into the main area. I always liked the first version of the Matrix Reloaded map, but this one is much better. It battles that boredom that people experienced with the first, because the first map seemed to just be something to look at. In fact, this new version reminds me of a map that I almost never got bored of playing - the TMBJ clan map. A lot of the new rooms added here are very similiar to those of that map. Good work here, Nathan. I look forward to seeing more from you in the future. Bot Support: Yes New Textures: Yes New Music: Yes Game Types: FFA (& JKR), Duel ~AmosMagee




Coruscant Part I - Padme\'s Home | 13.88 MB

James certainly did the city justice. The traffic, the color, the buildings - it\'s all perfect. Perfection comes with a cost though - FPS is a bit low. :/ My first reaction to the gameplay in this map is that there isn\'t enough to really make an FFA satisfying, but I\'ve changed my mind on that. I\'m trying to remember that this is only a small part of a larger map. Also, I think the moving pods could make for some interesting duels. :D The jail surprised me. And how I got in there was unexpected as well, until I started thinking about ... well, you\'ll see. The most impressive thing about this map has to be the models and textures and how it all comes together so well. I absolutely love some of the chairs included in this map. And the lighting is very pretty too. Though you should really see it in-game before judging this map. :) Amazing job, James. I can\'t wait to see the completed map. :D Bot Support: Yes New Textures: Yes New Music: No Game Types: FFA ~AmosMagee

statement regarding this skin. It\'s Anakin Skywalker as he should appear in Episode III. His hair is longer and he looks like he\'s licking his lips - er, well, IT DOES! Maybe he\'s supposed to be pursing his lips in anger, or he\'s being all serious or he\'s about to kiss Padme. *shrug* There are new sounds included here, but they, like, have no sound. Hrm.

Coruscant Streets | 21.89 MB

worth another look for me, because I really hate having to shut down all of my programs, restart, start everything back up again, load the map - only to have it crash again. So, Black Hunter, let me start by saying that this map looks great when you consider the screenshots. Anything that\'s Coruscant Streets-like is going to appeal to me. I love this theme. However, you screwed up in some MAJOR ways. There are several missing textures. The music doesn\'t fit this map AT ALL. You\'ve added posters that just aren\'t consistant with the Coruscant theme and really cheapen the atmosphere that it seems you wanted to create here. And finally, worst of all, I was getting about 9 FPS in some areas. It\'s a pretty map at first glance, but don\'t judge a book by its cover. This map has some serious flaws and it needs to be fixed. It\'s too big, sluggish, inconsistant visually and musically and it crashed my computer. I never, ever, ever rate maps. At least, not to my recollection. However, to make my point completely clear that making good maps are about how the map plays, I\'ll rate this one and I\'ll give it a 2/10. And that\'s generous of me. You get 2 points simply for making a map that does work, and almost getting the theme right. Bot Support: Yes New Textures: Yes New Music: Yes Game Types: FFA, TFFA, CTF ~AmosMagee




Dark Forces Mod (Demo 2) | 194.51 MB

Forces was the first game in the Jedi Knight Series (Dark Forces, Dark Forces II: Jedi Knight, Jedi Knight, Jedi Knight II e.t.c), and it came out way way back when I got my first PC. In fact, the original game was probably the first FPS I ever played and in that respect I think I know the game pretty well :) This file is basically a remake of that game for Jedi Academy. What the team for this mod has done is taken the old game and completely transferred it onto JKA, new textures, new sounds, better all around you could say. There are three demo levels in this mod, all of them fairly large, but you have to play them in order, starting with the good old imperial base. I spawned in a small lift and the grate opens into a narrow corridor, exactly as I remembered it from the original game. Here comes my biggest and worst point about the entire first two levels of the demo. FPS. It's absolutely awful, and running around this level is absolutely horrifying. It doesn't go too low, i.e below 10, but in the cavern area it never goes above 20 either. If a little more attention to VIS had been used, and techniques such as area-portaling, some indoor areas could have been vastly improved. The same applies to the second city level. Whilst it looks fantastic, and the weather effects are stunning, the map may be verging on 'unplayable' for those with lower spec PC's. However, this is THE worst thing about the mod, because pretty much everything else is great :D (As you'd expect from three years work) After stealing the plans from the imperial base in level 1, you're treated to some remakes of the original cut-scenes which are very nice indeed. The downside is that the character's mouths don't move which looks a little silly, but the whole effect is simply jaw-dropping. This leads you onto Level 2. (My favourite) Set on a planet called Talay, a city-typed area called Tak-Base has come under fire from the imperial forces and their new 'secret' weapon (A.K.A Dark Trooper.) Spawning into this level and I was instantly greeted with some intense weather effects and some brilliant ambient noise. Then I was off through the city, trying to find the power generator. It was a pain at first as its so darn easy to get lost, but when you get there and turn all the lights on the city is much brighter and well, you get the idea. Onto the musical aspects. Each level comes with the same music it had in the original game, except remade so it isn't so midi-like. Whilst this is accurate to the game, they're not that amazing to listen to anymore, and the transition between the action music and the stealth music isn't always as smooth as it could have been. My example here would be the title credits you see when you first load a new game. Whilst the music is what it sounded like in the original game, it would have been much better to have put the orchestrated version here because it sounds so much better! There are a few new enemies to kick around, like the sewer monsters in level 3, but the animations need tweaking slightly to make them more lifelike. As they stand, they look like cardboard cut-outs when they die ;) The weapons here are also from the original game, but the two you'll use the most in this demo are pretty much the same as the JKA versions. (The Bryar pistol and the E11) You also get thermal detonators, but I was disappointed there were none of the cooler weapons available to test out. All health and ammo pickups have been altered to resemble those from the original game, as has the HUD. The startup menus have also been changed, now being more green and saying "Dark Forces" instead of Jedi Academy. But for the final, please get rid of the annoying button-click sounds, they are far too loud and repetitive! What else? I'm not going to go into describing the depth and detail of the levels because it would take far too long. Just have a look at the screenshots and then test it yourself to from your own opinion. :) Oh yes, the enemy AI. I don't know whether it's the default JKA which I'm criticising here, but sometimes I could be stood behind an enemy, or sometimes even in front of them and they wouldn't notice I was there, whilst other came after me from halfway around the level (Stupid interrogator droids ;) ) My favourite level was Talay because I love cityscapes, but the best to play was Anoat Sewers because the framerate there was vastly improved. I'm sure there's plenty more I've forgotten to mention, such as the cool cutscenes and briefing screens, but If you download the mod you can see for yourself! I believe with some fiddling this demo will also work on a MAC. Check the developer's website for more info. ~Szico VII~




The Real Jedi Academy | 5.29 MB

this map. It's exactly what it was in the single player game, except now you can push and pull the blocks ... yeah, because we all need to practice that. ;) But you can also press a button in one small room to summon a little droid/sentry thingy so you can get some practice in. I can't say this is a bad map, I mean, the design is Raven's. So it is good. But, something that does bug me is that this map has no guns and very few pick-ups. Maybe that was intentional, I dunno. There are bot routes, so you can play this alone, y'know, but like, with bots. Looks like the music included is from Knights of the Old Republic and it seems to fit just fine. This is probably a great map to add to an FFA rotation where the focus is dueling. So, good job. :) Bot Support: Yes New Textures: Yes New Music: Yes Game Types: FFA, TFFA ~AmosMagee

Count Dooku VQ007 | 1.43 MB

with bot support, team colors and (supposed) new sounds. I say supposed, because the PK3 is indeed packed with various MP3 files. But maybe something in the .skin files weren\'t written correctly? *shrugs* Sound problems aside, this is a great looking skin! I have a poster here in my room with Dooku on it, and I have to say this skin is amazingly true to the persona shown by Christopher Lee as Count Dooku. The face especially is great. All of his other features are present as well, including the chain across his cloak. The team colors aren\'t much to brag about, just simple recoloring of the cloak, which isn\'t a bad thing! Overall, a very nice looking skin. Well done! Only thing wrong with this skin is the non-working sounds. If they work for any of you, post here with a notification please! ~Lord Griever~ [b]Bot Support - Yes Team Colors - Yes New Sounds - Yes?




Anakin vs Obiwan Duel Music | 10.68 MB




Episode 3 Anakin | 11.41 MB

and I've seen worse ones. Yes, I'm talking about the model. This is a skin, so I'm just commenting on the model choice. It's not bad. The face looks a little bit better than the average face I've seen on most Anakin models. The rest of the texturing, however, is average. Looking at it I can't really see anything that makes it stand out from most of the other Anakin models out there. The hair is just as weird as the rest, the face is just as blurry (unfortunately that's what you get when you photosource) and the clothes are just the same color. By this point in the game we're just getting minor tweaks of the dozens of Anakin skins out there already. This one's definitely not bad, but unfortunately most of them look to be just about the same to me. Maybe I've just seen too many of them... However I suppose that's saying something good. I've seen bad Anakin skins and models, and this isn't one of them. Just one thing about the original model. It deforms fairly well all around... except one vertex. If you look at the right shoulder area in ModView during the animations you'll see it. Unnoticible for the most part, though. Enjoy![/quote] I'm no expert on skins, and the previous review summed up the skin pretty well, so I'll just comment on the alterations in this version. The face fits the model's skinmap better now than it did in the previous versions, and the facial expression also seems to have been changed. This is good since in the previous version, he looked quite absent-minded. As fitting as that may be for Hayden Christiansen, I'm sure Anakin Skywalker isn't so scatter-brained. ;) The torso has been reskinned from scratch for this version, as have the arms and hair. The whole outfit is accurate to the movie, and the reskinning work on the torso and arms is an improvement over v2. The hair looks rather flat in ModView, but judging from the in-game screenshots provided, as soon as you get the skin into JKA you won't notice. These faults are all minor, so they don't detract from the overall quality of the skin. You wouldn't even notice them unless you were specifically looking for them - I had to scrutinise pretty closely to see anything at all. The good points are far more in number than the bad points, but if I commented on them, I'd just be repeating what the previous review said. A few nice extras have also been provided with this version. Movie Battles II support has been included, as well as HapSlash's Anakin hilt. Maestro Obi also threw in a custom blade mod he's made. This is a high quality skin, and a worthy addition to the average SW nerd's collection. Unless you're a perfectionist, or just don't like Anakin, I don't see any reason not to give this one a download. ~ Kouen [b]NPC Support:[/b] Yes [b]Bot Support:[/b] Yes [b]Team Support:[/b] Yes [b]New Sounds:[/b] Yes [b]Other Extras:[/b] MovieBattles II Support Singleplayer Customization Saber Blades Mod Lightsaber Hilt [b]NPC Spawning Codes:[/b] /npc spawn anakin /npc spawn anakinsith




Yoda | 1.36 MB

fixed for JA or anything. Since I can\'t really find any differences, I was going to just leave you with the original model\'s read-me, but it wasn\'t very descriptive either. Oh well. I guess I can say a few things about the model, created by Team Yoda, since I can\'t figure out what\'s different between the two versions. The model itself is quite accurate. It even has Yoda\'s thinning hair. Since the model is the correct proportions, it doesn\'t fit on the skeleton really well, so some of the animations are a bit off, and the weighting was done very oddly. They did with what they had though, I assume. The shoulder areas don\'t seem to deform that well (though in my opinion that\'s the hardest area to weight!) and the back of the robe is weighted to a different part then the front, so there\'s some clipping of the front part of the robe into the back. The skin, however, is excellent, especially the face. This (or the original) is definitely worth your download if you\'re a Yoda fan. Just do us a favor. Don\'t send in too many Yoda PotDs... ;) Bot Support: Yes Team Support: Yes New Sounds: No (From original model) NPC Support: No ~Inyri




YodaNPC | 1.3 MB

let me tell you this little guy looks pissed in game. The first thing I did was try on the skin. I spun the ole camera around to check out it\'s front, and it freaked me out. Yoda on a bad day! Ok, enough about that. This pack contains acouple different versions of yoda you can spawn as npc\'s. I spawned the first one... single green saber yoda. well.. he was definitly scaled to size. I walked up to him and proceeded to slice him apart. He didnt fight back.. hmmm. So, I spawned another, and this time I spawned alora with him. All Heck broke out!. That mean little yoda flew into action like a little dog attacking someones ankles! It was fun to watch lol. The skins look really good, and the npc\'s are well done as well. I think ill keep this one! Watchin those two fight reminded me of the yoda/Dooku duel! -Lizardking




Jedi Knight: Racing | 5.89 MB

swoops. It didn't take long for Chrono to give birth to the idea of JK Racing! Well, why not? So add to those new game types, JKR - JK Racing, where you and your friends spawn onto a large race track, set in Tatooine where four swoops await you. Jump on one of the swoops available and speed off down the raceway. Swerve in-between large pillars, take sharp turns around a rock, then either follow the arrow around another turn, or risk plummeting to your death by taking the short cut over a deep chasm. Defeat your opponents by being the fastest and reaching the finish line first, or by being the most deadly and just doing away with your competition. Once all of the swoops are gone, just restart the map to have four more. Or, according to the readme, you can just enable cheats on your server before starting up this map and then spawn as many swoops as you need for a good race. :) (Oh, and there's rumor of a hidden swoop with guided rockets, but that's all I can say about that.) The map is obviously Tatooine. The track itself is challenging and fun. Is it much to look at? Well, who the heck is looking at their surroundings when they're trying to stay alive in a race like the ones that'll take place on this map!? I love this concept. When testing this mod/map with the others, it was just, so much fun. I can't wait until others make more maps like this to add to the JKR game type. :D "Wait! I don't know how to make maps that will spawn NPC Vehicles into JA Multiplayer maps!" You don't!? Well, lucky for you, Chrono has included a very detailed tutorial with his mod and map! All you need to know is the basics of making a map to be able to make your very own JKR map! I'm sure there are already some concepts of a JKR map of Coruscant, where we'll be riding swoops high and low and in and out of buildings. Who will be the first to recreate the Podrace track from Episode 1? There are so many possibilities now with Chrono's mod. Great work, I look forward to seeing more of Chrono's JKR maps and more from the community! Bot Support: No New Textures: No New Music: Yes Game Types: Um, JKR (JK Racing) ~AmosMagee




Battle on Yavin 4 | 3.53 MB

said, it\'s a shame Raven didn\'t just put out an expansion for JK2 and give us the two new game types of Powerduel and more importantly, Siege. I\'ll admit that I haven\'t played a lot of Siege, but I am familiar with it and I love it. In fact, I\'ve mostly been playing JK2 and Troopers lately. (Troopers is a mod for UT2K4.) Anyway, this map reminded me of the Objective map Yavin for Troopers. The objectives aren\'t the same in all cases, but very similiar. I spent way too much time on this map, blowing up generators. Not that I wanted to spend so much time doing that, it\'s just that it takes forever to blow them up and there\'s like, 4 or 5 of them. I know I destroyed 4, but I never got a nudge to move on to the next objective. In any case, it\'s a fun map, I think. And I really should be playing more Siege. It\'s just about the only thing I enjoy about JA and this map would be a lot more fun to play with others. Cause like, playing Siege alone sucks.

Battle Droid. The only thing, visually, I see missing is a little red dot. Other than that, this is a perfect model. Though it\'s not a complete package. No bot support was included, which is a shame. Cause like, you totally need an army of these things to kill, y\'know? And most unfortunate of all, there are no new sounds. :( Regardless, this is a great model and I can\'t wait to see what\'s next from Chairwalker. :D Bot Support: No Team Colors: Yes New Sounds: No ~AmosMagee




Backhand Lightsabers | 525.9 KB

picked wisely. :p And so, here is a nice little set of lightsabers from HOUOU. Anyone who played the console EPIII video game will instantly recognize this funky backhand fighting style. And this is basically all the mod does, the author made a rather simple (but neat looking) hilt to go with his backhand lightsaber, called sniper. There are three pk3s included, a regular version of his sniper hilt, a backhand version, and a backhand Katarn hilt. There are some major issues with multiplayer, as the game seems to crash when trying it out with all pk3s in your base folder (solo mode worked perfectly fine). The solution would be to pick one, and stick with it, or not use them in MP... After all, I doubt any server would simply allow exploits like that, but if you find one, enjoy. ~Metall Pingwin




Enhanced Saber Realism | 8.75 MB

version 2 of the original mod. Panda expressly told the author [i]not[/i] to refer to it as such, but he seemed to feel the need to anyway, so just keep in mind that this is nothing more than an unofficial fix/update and that pandapop999 is already planning a [i]real[/i] version 2 himself. [i][b]Anyway...[/i][/b] This changes a few things from the original, mainly being that speed has been increased, boss NPC stats have been normalized, and dismemberment has been added. This should appease those people who felt that the mod moved much too slowly. Certainly an improvement over the original in some areas, but you'll have to decide for yourself whether or not you want to replace the original with this one. ~Inyri




The Giant's House | 17.13 MB

play it with a couple of people is really fun. Lots of comedy value here I spawned at the computer desk (you can go inside the computer screen) and I started to explore the huge room and it really does have some crazy things and items. It can be pretty fun trying to get around since everything’s scaled much larger than yourself, it would be a great map for grapple hook swinging. There's quite alot of custom textures used it adds to the whole big room feeling. The detail and fun factor of the map is great only it makes you want to explore more there isn't many places to go except in that big room and one or two secret rooms which is a disappointment because I would love to see more of this map. I also saw a hamster cage with a Wampa in it too LOL. The music is good for the map too the whole wacky theme really adds to it. Great map the only improvements could be adding another room or more secrets but play this with others and you'll have a blast.

Evolution Academy | 14.93 MB

and I totally left that room as quickly as possible. Most of the map hasn\'t changed at all, but I was very impressed with this one room. There\'s this twisty platform in a pool of lava and a bunch of small platforms you need to jump to to get to the main one or to get out of the room. I really, really like the look of this room. Yes, this map has your basics for your standard \"academy\" map, but this one is actually fun. And there are so many things one can do here. You can fight NPCs, RP, duel, FFA. I think this is a very well done map, though it doesn\'t offer much by way of eye candy. Bot Support: Yes New Textures: Yes New Music: Sorta Game Types: FFA, Duel ~AmosMagee

This is a model of the AC version of Cloud, where Cloud looks alot better than he does with Playstation graphics. The model works well, there are a few minor problems but nothing noticeable, the hair mainly, but while playing it isn\'t really something that spoils it, so it\'s all good. Unfortunately though, no new sounds, but I know the trouble they had getting them and I\'m sure someone will fix that eventually. The model was made by 3 people; Broli, Jimesu and V, they did a great job, look\'s exactly like Cloud in the movie, thanks for making it guys! Enjoy folks.

Naboo Streets | 8.51 MB

is. But for FFAing? Meh. I realize that you intend on releasing another version of this map that is more FPS friendly and stuff, James, but for now, this map is good for a quick glance and maybe a duel or two, but that\'s about it. There are no real points of interest in this map. The stairwells are a bit too narrow and the inside is too cramped for good gameplay. I absolutely love this design. It\'s a gorgeous map and deserves a second chance from me. There just isn\'t any balance for FFAing without a few more levels to play on. Kinda like Bespin Streets, y\'know? There are streets at different heights, there\'s a pad for dueling, roofs, etc. I just think Naboo Streets needs more, y\'know?

Korriban Citadel | 15.75 MB

but since I\'ve done so many reviews, I cannot recall whether I admitted this yet or not. I have not finished the single player game for Jedi Academy. *gasp* I know, I know. Feel free to string me up by my toes and tar and feather me - but not until I finish 100 reviews, k? So how much of this map is the author\'s and how much is Raven\'s? Gosh, I have no idea. All I know is, I like this map for multiplayer. Except for one thing. If you know me, you\'ll know what that is. Yup. There\'s a Rancor. There\'s a door with a picture of a Rancor on it. And the Rancor totally growled at me before I even got to the door. Scared the living crap out of me. I got up enough courage to open the door, but I pressed my use key one too many times and the door opened, then promptly closed. I decided that everything happens for a reason and I wasn\'t meant to play with the Rancor. I moved onto a safer area in the map. Statues of Ragnos are EVERYWHERE in this map. Like, almost a shrine kinda thing. There\'s a nice little lake of lava below one platform and there are some pieces of stone that can be pushed or pulled. That got a bit frustrating and I died immediately. I took that as a hint to move on and look at other stuff in the map. I love the lighting in this map and there are many places to duel or FFA in this map. There are apparently some secrets here and there, but I found none of them. Frankly, the Rancor scared me off. Nevertheless, this is a map worth your time to download and explore. And would be a good staple for your basic saber-only FFA server.

more incredible than I could\'ve imagined it being. It\'s Egypt. And it\'s just ... I\'m seriously having trouble finding words for this ... it\'s amazing. The map is soooo vast and beautiful and the effects are gorgeous. You really cannot grasp how incredible this map is unless you play it. The screenshots, while lovely, do not do the map justice at all. I should apologize for writing such a short review, but if I were to say anything else, I\'d just repeating how beautiful this map is. But don\'t take my word for it - download the map now and find out for yourself. My FPS wasn\'t too bad either. Then again, I did upgrade. WOO! My other puter probably couldn\'t have handled this map. The music is appropriate, of course, because it\'s from Stargate SG-1. It really sets the mood for this map that\'s so much fun to explore. Though I have to say, I didn\'t explore the sands too much - I wasn\'t sure if Wade put any sandworms in there or not. Wonderful job, Wade. Seriously. I can\'t wait to see what you do next. :D Bot Support: No New Textures: Yes New Music: Yes Game Types: FFA, TFFA, CTF ~AmosMagee Edit: By the way, there\'s a very cool little secret area in this map where you can fly a Deathglider.

JediStyle Mod | 11.62 KB

core _humanoid animation set via modifying the animation.cfg file, effectively making the model perform a different motion when an action is done. According to the ReadMe, these changes are: *Walk animation for Dual sabers *Walk animation for the Staff *Run animation for dual sabers *Run animation for the Staff *Force Jump animation *Blue stance for single saber(animated) *Red stance for single saber(animated) *Dual sabers stance *Stand idle animation *Dual sabers victory taunt (gloat) *Red stance victory taunt (gloat) Now I know the concept of rearranging the animation.cfg to make different animations isn\'t very new, but overall, I think the new animations look quite good. Some look a little weird in some cases (Like when you stop running on single red stance), but I think this is file is still worth a download. :) -TiM

Jango Fett | 3.49 MB

shaders this time. I must've been too tired to notice em before - they're very well implemented. For a start, it's not your standard TCGen shader, no. These effects are much less noticeable, but still make it look like metal. This way the whole Jango Fett in many battles thing shows through. Scrathed helmets don't shine like brand new do they? It's kinda wierd. You know something's there, and it looks good, but it's hard to pick out what, ya know? The only shader I coud pick out easily was the helmet shader, where the light goes from one side to the other. Nice:) As I said before, the actual skin is obviously a Boba Fett Reskin, nothing you haven't seen before, but it's more impressive than the original. Nice blue armour :) You can also play as him in SP mode if you so desire, makes a nice change. So there's all the nice shaders and stuff, but it doesn't bring something incredibly new and exciting to players looking for a little more 'zing' in their JKA gaming. Some may prefer more original skins, but for fans and people looking for some very nice realism, this is a skin to download :) The sounds (or at least a few of em) are taken from the movie for more realism, and there is Bot and Team Support. I really liked the variants for this :) He also has a variation where he dons a Jetpack which looks perhaps a little too blue, but still well designed. Doesn't work unless you also have a real jetpack on, and then there's Z-Fighting, but not a huge problem. New Sounds: Yes Team Support: Yes Bot Support: Yes ~Szico VII~




-[SithLords]-Pack | 14.69 MB

So now they\'re supposed to be sith lords or something like that. Okay, so you have a bunch of black and white and gray Jadens, what can be improved? Well first off you could make it so that they don\'t overwrite the default Jadens when you load it. How does one do this, you ask? Look at the file structure for the skin, and eventually you\'ll figure it out. But the big thing here, is to make it so that your base Jaden skins are not overwritten. Why? Because when they are, every part is overwritten. There are other parts to this mod, like being only able to use force jump and the saber attack and defense powers, but the main thing in this mod was the skins.

ForceMod III - Return of the Sith (Manual Install) | 38.94 MB

Academy. ForceMod III - Return of the Sith gives you the option of nearly 30 different classes. I can\'t even list all of the classes here, there are just too many. But as an example, as a Jedi Warden, you get a limited number of force powers, a lower saber attack level, but you get a Bryar. As an Aurorian, you get all light side force powers (up to level 4!) and level 4 attack and defense at max, but no other weapons other than your sabers. There are many other variations on these limitations which really seem to balance the mod/game. There are several new stances added - some specifically for single, dual or staff sabers. Some of the sabers are destructable as well. There are many new special moves added and a ton of other stuff including, but not limited to, cloaking, flame gauntlet, optic radar and a jetpack. There\'s just so much here, I really can\'t cover it all. Download this mod and check it out. I wouldn\'t be surprised if this starts popping up on a bunch of servers. :D ~AmosMagee




Deception | 79.9 MB

acting [i]technology[/i], by the way - all the voice actors were actually quite good, they just didn't have a nice studio to polish up the audio). While this mod consists only of three playable maps, it is actually quite long - I've been testing it all morning and I just only now finished. The story revolves around a Iridonian (Zabrak) mercenary named Phelan who has been hired by the Alliance to investigate a disturbance they did not have the resources to investigate themselves. This leads Phelan on a quest that brings him farther than a mere mission for the Alliance and introduces us to a new threat (which I shall not spoil for you). The maps alone are beautiful, and they are quite consistent from beginning to end. The architecture and style of the maps doesn't change half way through, which is nice. Unfortuntely when I finished testing I had nearly 40 screenshots, so I had to cut it down a bit, so I do recommend you play it to get the full appreciation of the beauty of some of these maps. Now all mods have bugs, and this one is no different. In some of the elevators there was a bit of z-fighting between the red and green buttons. I had a couple of problems with some cutscenes, though I can't say whether or not it was an isolated incident without playing through the mod again, and I told Shadriss I'd have it posted some time today ;). However the mod itself makes these few bugs seem quite insignificant. This mod isn't for the light-hearted who want to just blast on through. It's going to take some thinking, but hopefully it'll be enjoyable. I know I certainly enjoyed it. However make sure to pack up your blaster with a few extra clips - you're going to need them. Highly recommended. Download now. [b]UPDATE[/b]: After speaking with Shadriss and retesting the last two levels I have discovered the cutscenes (and part of the second level, actually) only get bugged if you never obtain the lightsaber. If you do get it everything works wonderously. Now if you're paying attention, like I wasn't, it shouldn't be much of a problem. Just remember that each cutscene has significance ;). ~Inyri

Rcon SE | 5 MB

This mental skill is even more necessary if you run a server with a mod, which adds more commands to the server. Lostingamma has created a program, called Rcon SE, that will allow a person to connect to a server, and control it, as if they were right in there. This could be helpful if you need to make some changes on your server, but don’t have enough time to start up JKA, or you can’t find your CD. This program can even be used a friends house, even if the friend has never installed JKA on his computer. Another great thing, is when you connect to a server, you can see some of the basic settings on your server, right when you see the main part of the program. The name of the server, its mod (if any), version, game type, and more. Then, you can send commands to the server through a text bar. It also has extra buttons for servers that are basejka, or JA+. So, if you forget a command, and you have a basejka or JA+ server, there is a possibility there is a button for it. If your server isn’t running either of these, like if you were running the ForceMod, it will still work, you can submit ForceMod commands through the text bar. You can restart the map and shutdown the server with this program too. There is also a Help System included, for those of you that need help. As a bonus, it comes with an installer, that way you can easily put it on your computer. -Airm




Casa De Los Parias | 31.38 MB

come back at some point and just throw together a map just as beautiful as this one just for me (but for JK2). :D Casa de los Parias is just a gorgeous map. And it\'s even unfinished, if you can believe that. On one side of the island, a large cargo ship is docked. The sound effects are great, and creepy. LOL I hate that creaking metal sound. I wish there was more to the ship. I wanted to go inside and I wanted there to be stuff to play with, like switches and buttons to press. :) Bored with the ship, I explored the small island. Everything from the sky to the water to the sand to the grass is just lovely. The fountains are very pretty, but your FPS may take a bit of a hit when you\'re around them. I love, love, love the bright Carribean-like blue water and the beach. Eventually, I pulled myself away from outdoors and went inside. The first room I found myself in was the billiards room. I wish someone could figure out how to make that work, y\'know, for real. I don\'t know why, but I\'d love to shoot pool with my saber. Anyway, the bedrooms were spacious, but decorated sparsely. There\'s art all over in this house. And then, OMG, the bathroom. I want to move into this freakin\' house. At the top of the house is a helipad with your own private helicopter waiting for you. Okay, back indoors. The dining room has a long, formal table with candles and \"china\" settings. I adore the kitchen. It even has a \"working\" dishwasher (at least, that\'s what it appears to be, it\'s next to the sinks and has steam and ... careful, it\'s hot!). There are several rooms to explore on this map and obviously it\'s meant for RPing. The music chosen is perfect for the setting, though I\'m sure it\'ll get on your nerves before too long. Get this map. Download it now and play it. It\'s not for guns FFA, and it\'s barely suitable for sabers (though I wouldn\'t mind dueling on the beach), so keep in mind what this map is. :) Great work Orb. I wish you\'d finish it and add more to the ship and stuff. I also really hope you\'ll occasionally make a map for the JK community now and again.

cockpit to that little game with the dudes, I can\'t remember the name of it, to the bedrooms to things you don\'t expect - like Mandalorian toilet paper. You\'ll see what I mean. ;) It\'s pretty impressive how much he included in this map and how you can explore every nook and cranny, including crawlspaces. I don\'t want to even tell you all that\'s here because you need to see it for yourself. You\'ve outdone yourself, James. Though I wouldn\'t suggest this map for those who want to play an FFA of any kind. This is, in my opinion, one of those maps for exploration or RPing.

Toshi's Yoda | 13.34 MB

model, and boy, I don't know how Toshi does it but he's not only a fast modeler, hes a decent one at that. This is his take on on the famous Jedi Master which as described in the readme was not intended for release, but we are now graced with the release of this model. Now I will admit, its not perfect in places. There is a little clipping but its really only minor and to me it isn't a problem. Plus that's the JA skeleton being a pain. The detail on this model is spectacular, you can really see Yoda's facial detail come out in the texture work. His proportions are spot on as far as I can tell as well. I really don't have anything bad to say about this model, Its just, Yoda o.O. The accuracy is amazing. The only thing I would suggest is adding in different versions of Yoda maybe if there is a version 2 planned. The author has included new sounds, team skins, bot support, and Yoda is also playable in SP. Toshi has also made a custom .glm to fit Yoda's fighting style better. Unfortunately it only works in SP though. Read more about this in the readme. To really put the cherry on top, Toshi has added Yoda's saber in here aswell also made by himself. This model definitely competes with those Yoda's already out there, and in my opinion is the best one out there.

Anchorhead Slums (v2.0) | 2.23 MB

wanted just that ... a really big Tatooine map. My screenshots are a bit darker than what the map really is. There are so many areas to explore here. The most frustrating thing about this map though, is that very few of the doors open. But you have to try them all, because you never know which ones will open. This is a very curvy map. I really like it because the curves of some of the walls and paths really break up the monotony of the same textures all over this map. My favorite place in the map is the bar. Hmm. I say that a bit too often, don\'t I? The bar is almost always my favorite place. LOL Anyway ... I love the lighting and the tables in here. The layout is interesting too. And I just love the look of the actual bar. There are some very cute posters on the wall here and there. This seems to be a perfect map for RPing. There are weapons here and there, but they\'re sparse. Which is a good thing, I think. I saw a few instances of z-fighting here and there, but they were minor. Overall, it\'s a decent map, but it would be best for a large FFA. Cause, yeah, this map is huge. [/quote] Nothing seems to have really changed. If you want to see the screenshots of the map, go here: I didn\'t really take any screenshots of this second version because, well ... nothing seems to have really changed. CTF works. So I tried that out. Oh, I also am including a screenshot of where I spawned when I switched to the red team. Yikes. That should probably be fixed. (I couldn\'t move. :/) Anyway, so yeah ... this is the second version. I\'m trying to think of what else to say ... but ... um ... I have more reviews to do. So ... download this map and stuff, k?

General Kenobi | 5.67 MB

Based off one of the most incredible models to arrive at JK3files recently(in my opinion), Haplash's ROTS Obi-wan Kenobi. Now for the details. The entire outfit, has been redone to look like armor, and done pretty well at that. The screenshots alone do not do this skin justice. The immense amount of detail is amazing, and I just dig the rusty looking feeling added to certain areas. Best of all, this comes with TEAM skins, you may enjoy in all types of games. Time to end this actually, I'll let you examine the screenshots, and then put it to the test ingame. Have fun. -LordMyth




Link | 7.08 MB

users. And quite a few of his weapons. And some new animations. (Yes, I'm aware that there are previous versions of this - however, I'm referring to it as "new" since it's been extensively overhauled, and in truth I really wouldn't have known they were related just by looking at them.) Dan Kappahn, aka DAK, aka Antizac, brings us a great model pack here. We'll start with Adult Link. I can say, that it looks very much like Ocarina of Time, only more lifelike. If I saw Link walk round the corner on my way to college, I expect this is what he'd look like. The accuracy, considering the difference between the sources of the engines, is quite surprising. The customisation offers the three tunics - Kokiri, Goron, and Zora (green, red and blue respectively, for those who don't know), as well as three extras - purple, cyan and grey. I'm not sure if these were actually used in any of the games, since I've only played A Link To The Past, Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask and OoT: Master Quest, but they look just as natural as the 'canon' colors. You can also make your own with JA+'s RGB selectors. Black and gold look rather cool, if I may say so. Wonder what masks those correspond with - Ninja Mask and Paladin Mask, maybe? :p My gripes with the Adult model are few. The boots - towards the top of the boots, the skin seems to turn into a flat black color. This doesn't detract from overall quality, but it's still not very nice-looking. Second is the holster. It looks good, and is a nice touch, but it doesn't really do anything. For JA+ users, it could have been added as a holster, but the swords don't seem holster-compatible either. Now onto the 'Fierce Deity' skin. While it does look like the Fierce Diety version of link, I do have one complaint. The eyes look quite dodgy the way they were skinned. That's just a minor gripe, and not really noticable ingame though. Other than that, it's just as high-quality as the adult Link skin. Next up, is Young Link. He certainly resembles his Ocarina Of Time counterpart very well. He's a bit chubby, though - I suppose with the baddies defeated, he's missing his excercise. One problem with Young Link, is that no modelscale.cfg was included. While this would do nothing for a lot of people, considering most servers run JA+, it would have been a nice touch. Not many gripes here either. The weapons are next. Included, are the Kokiri Sword, Master Sword, Hylian Shield, Kokiri Shield, and two versions of the Hero's Sword - one from Twilight Princess, the other from Majora's Mask. The weapons are all modelled... well, like weapons. They closely resemble their LoZ counterparts, but like the model, they've been changed a little to look more realistic. I didn't take seperate screenshots of the weapons, but I tried to include at least one shot of each with the model screens, so take a look for yourselves. Now, I admit, I didn't test the new animations pk3 which has been included, but apparently it changes the dual saber stance to something more suitable for a sword and shield. Anyway, this is a great pack, and a very nice upgrade. If you like this, download it. Even if you just like swords, get the swords - they're worth it. ;) ~ Kouen [b]Bot Support:[/b] Yes [b]Team Skins:[/b] Yes [b]NPC Support:[/b] Yes [b]New Sounds:[/b] Yes

But there you have it, a 4 pointed, strangely textured saber that will be great for some of you while others will just not like it. Impossibly to please everybody though right? -WadeV1589-




Cloud City | 34.97 MB

find a fair few places of recognition when you explore around; I think the most noticeable area for me was that dining room where Han has his little spat with Vader, but there are also the classic landing pads and curved corridors. However, this is definitely a role-playing map, as the layout doesn’t really allow for a proper-FFA - it has too many corridors going off in all different directions, and you have to traverse a fairly long distance to get between areas. On the theme of shadowing, I think I’ll talk about the lighting next. On the whole it was fairly consistent, and most areas had reasonable sources, even though in places light was coming from nowhere, and for the outside sections the sky light was far too orangey. I think the main problem here though, is that it looks as though the author has reduced his ‘lightmapscale’ or ‘gridsize’ settings when compiling the map, which has resulted in rather jagged shadowing, and a general lack of definition from specific sources. There’s also, the horrible bespin sky, but fortunately the custom one here isn’t quite as horrible as the default one that Raven used in their original map. The buildings in it actually look rather nice, and the shadowing on them is also of a nice definition compared with the map itself :) Other extras included some JK2 model conversions, such as the Lando statue, which was particularly fitting. And also some not-so-fitting things, such as the logos advertising LDJ's site/workgroup. This map does perform extremely well in the architectural section though, with plenty of nice brush detailing, curves, and features of interest, combined with some nice moving entities and tidbits, such as the opening armoury :) There were a few areas where the quality dropped a little however, and the chandelier model-things had such an awful texture on them, which spoiled the areas in which they were located somewhat. There were also some floating objects between the upper and lower walkways outside, and at the door to the Falcon (Which, you can’t go in by the way – “Boo, Hiss! ;) ) And, there’s also a rather unfortunate bug too – when on the high walkway looking down to the lower one, if you turn around and jump off the other side, you can land on the invisible floor and walk around the underside of the map. The duel arena was nice though – I won’t comment on the amusement of the announcer voice in case it was recorded by who I think might have recorded it ;) – but the idea works well and the engineering was good….until it broke and the retracting pieces went out of sync… ;) The lifts were also very classy – A bit more lighting on the walls might have been in order when they were moving though, I couldn’t tell they were moving at first. It’s cloud city, how can you not enjoy it? The map isn’t a real gameplay fest though, and to my utmost horror, no bot support was included, yet for Nostalgia value and simply for creating the Star-Wars universe feel, you should at least check it out.

Battle of Geonosis | 9.51 MB

famous scene in the movie, and not to bad a job at it to. I think the general feel one gets is what the author was striving for. Since this is being made for somthing else, I wont discuss other areas such as other rooms etc, since I do not know the reason or place this map holds in battlemovies. I will ask about two things that really stood out though. The first thing, would be the "sun" rays. I dont get them, and they do feel out of place. Maybe they were forgotten to be removed? In any case, the other issue is the weapons placement. In the under areas of this map, there are rows and rows of weapons all in the same place. The map is fairly pretty and like I already stated, does carry the general feel of its intention. Can't wait to see the finished / full version in the coming Moviebattles! ~LK~




Battlefront Yavin (with ATST) | 7.45 MB

seems that Sith-J-Cull just keeps getting better and better with each map he creates. There are stone walls and pillars all around the whole map. You\'ll find a few high towers with stationary guns up top, swoops in some areas, and AT-ST\'s placed sparsely. The waterfall is just gorgeous, and the ambient sounds are perfect. The stone paths have grass growing up through the cracks, and in some areas, you\'ll see only a dirt path. I adore the terrain in this map. Hills, rocks, tight turns, grass, dirt ... all of it. Also the layout makes the map seem bigger than it is. Well, it\'s big anyway. Once again, we see a bridge over a small stream. I still haven\'t grown weary of that look. The landscape is lush ... everywhere you go there are trees and bushes, but it\'s in Yavin and so you\'ll find some technical touches here and there. There are also a few secret areas that will help you get to another place faster, and without being seen - you see what I mean?? Perfect for CTF! Anyway, in the third area, there\'s this rope bridge that could make for some very interesting duels. :) It hangs high above a raging river and large rocks. When you manage to get across, you\'ll find yourself in a small room with a blue platform. There\'s also a red platform on the other side of the map. Okay, that SO screams CTF. But nowhere I read did it say that this map supports CTF. :( The music included is much more suitable than that other one, James. :) Yay! I think I now have a new favorite map! If only it didn\'t have swoops in it, I\'d so add this to my server. Great job, James! Bot Support: Yes New Textures: Yes New Music: Yes Game Types: FFA, TFFA ~AmosMagee




Advent Children - White Cloud | 3.36 MB

skin. That blurry orange symbol that was on the first version is now gone, and shaders have been added, as well as bot support, npc support, singleplayer support, team skins, and sounds. I can certainly say that the skin looks better from last time, but it still needs a little work. The shaders, while cool, utilize the glow effect. What does that mean to you? It means you have to have r_dynamicglow set to 1. This also means that your ingame FPS will be cut in half. For some of you, your graphics card doesn\'t support dynamic glow. But other than that, the wolfs head on Cloud\'s shoulder pulsates. The biggest thing was the shader used on the skin. While it serves its purpose, it doesn\'t extend to cover the face. That\'s just disappointing that the author didn\'t notice that while testing this skin. Now for a quick overview of the team skins. Instead of being white, they go with a black theme. And they aren\'t solid black! They do have red and blue shading on them, and the hair for each one is different. That\'s it.

Shadows Of The Sith(SOTS) Darth Maul(DM) | 46.75 MB

everything that Darth Maul did in the movie, with the exception that you invade Theed, where in the movie you were already in it, and in this you win. There are several missions in this mod, and I must say that the win/lose menu really confused me. It was the same message whether you died or won, and the menu was exactly the same. You could choose any mission to start with, so you could kill Qui Gon and then go fight him again. What kind of sense does that make? It doesn’t matter, I’d just like it more if you were forced to do the missions in a linear fashion. The maps were simple, but the author does point out that he did most, if not all of putting this together by himself. The cinematics were simple, but at least there were cinematics for this. But in the majority this was a pretty fun total conversion, and is part of a series that is yet to be finished. So download it and try it out! ~Zach




-[ZoU]- Zone of Ultima Fortress | 24.7 MB

But! We all know there are exceptions to that generalization and in my opinion this is one of them. This map is cool! There are so many things to explore and the rooms have their own cool sounds and what not. I particularly liked the underground portion of this map, the sounds and fog and such fit so well in that part. There were however some FPS problems in some areas but this was quickly forgotten about while I was running around looking for the secrets and such. This map has a cool \"music room\" where you can change the music over the entire map. There was a problem with one of the choices for the music, I guess the song was renamed of not packed in the .pk3 or something because it said it couldn\'t find the file. Still quite a good map though! In the readme it says there\'s a spawnable NPC that you can fight by pressing use on a clan logo somewhere, I didn\'t get the chance to try to fight him so I can\'t tell you how to beat him =). All in all quite a cool map! It has tons of new shaders and textures and nifty doodads that you can play with. I hope to see more than clan maps from you El Cuko. Good WOrk!

so I am happy to say that this particular author felt kind enough to grace us with a comparison shot between his skin, the original, and what he has dubbed a "common" reskin (although I've never noticed this model to be commonly reskinned!). The comparison is actually very important, as it shows some of the important differences. And there [i]is[/i] a difference. A big one. My first thought was "Wow, he actually did something noticible!", something I'm not entirely used to. But this reskin, I have to say, looks leaps and bounds better than the original, and quite a bit better than his "common" reskin example too. I only have two complaints, actually. Maybe three, if you count the team colors being the same as the default. Complaint 1: I would have preferred a happy medium between the helmet shader on the "common reskin" version and this version. It just doesn't seem shiny enough, but the other seems a bit too shiny. Complaint 2: The cape looks awfully flat. NPC, team, and bot support have all been included, as well as the Vader sounds you have come to expect from such skins. Would I recommend this skin? You betcha. It's realistic, it's got all the goodies, and it just looks awesome. Any RotS fan who passes this skin up should be forced to do pushups.

Cybernetic Maul | 2.56 MB

survived his bisection and fall into the shaft on Naboo and was fitted with cybernetic legs. His hunt for the only person to have defeated him, Obi-Wan Kenobi, began.[/Quote] This revamped Maul, while non-canon, is still pretty intense. Can you imagine facing a foe you were certain was dead, yet he returns, and more menacing than ever? I can, mainly because it happens to me all the time. But honestly, this model is decently done. The structure and the skin are both decent. He even has some pretty well done sounds that I'm assuming were done by a friend. I almost thought it was Maul himself O_o. My only qualm lies in the face. NO ANIMATION =_=, how foul. Maul needs to at least bare his nasty, and now pry nastier, yellow teeth. Minus my qualms, this release is pretty nice. My only suggestion would probably work on the face. I'm sure plenty of others have complaints, but personally I express no care.

Mandalorians | 2.8 MB

Mandalorian model created and skinned by the one and only, Mars. An abundance of skins are included in this skin pack. Only one of them has team support and the skins that function as the team skins are also available for selection in the menu seperately. There are many to choose from (13 different ones, by my count) and all with very distinct differences. There\'s a very colorful basic Mandalorian, a dark black one with a nice shader and some silver details, a green one with a few dings in the helmet, and to complement that one, there\'s the same skin, sans helmet. Then there\'s one with a very interesting black vest-like shirt, a plain green and white one with some yellow shoulders, and then there\'s this other basic Mandalorian with four different looks. One without helmet, the other three with helmets and three different jetpacks. Then there\'s a black, white and red one (just saying that makes me wonder if there\'s a joke out there like \"What\'s black and white and red all over?\" \"A mandalorian who _______\"




Backhand Normal Stance HQ | 8.31 MB

Though there isn't really much room for variation on the simple back-handed stance, there are a few cool features that set this mod out from the crowd. First of all, the stance is a pretty dramatic pose, a bit more animated looking than the previous ones I have seen. But the really cool part is that you stand there, you can see your characters head and shoulders bob up and down slightly making it look like they are panting heavily, perhaps after battling some Sith Lord. ;) This is a really nice little feature I think, as it makes your player character look much more alive and dynamic. All in all a cool mod here, though it only works with the single saber of course. Personally I would like to see a version which also adjusts the dual and staff saber stances, adding that 'panting' movement effect in there too. If you like the look of this mod, then be sure to give it a download, especially if you are looking for a stance mod to compliment your other Force Unleashed mod's! ~Nozyspy~

Darth Vos | 1.64 MB

Anyways, this is a new model, emaning you will probably have never seen it before, and to be honest its a wonderful change from Reborn models and other yucky things like that. Darth Vos kind of reminds me of Qui-Gon-Jinn from Episode I, this guy has a similar style of hair and his clothes look similar. (except the cloaked version) What I want to know is whether this guy is designed to be a good jedi or a bad one, It's very hard to tell. The first skin looks like what jedi's in the movies wear - He has a shirt like Anakin's from EPII, similar brown trousers and tall boots reminescent of Dragonball Z, albeit a bit longer. Then theres this jacket-typed thing with a belt, which looks like the thing Obi-Wan wears in EPI. So the author has made a nice model and merged lots of different clothes into this Darth Vos, along with some good hair for a model, and a few face-paints (All of which look very nice.) :) The second skin is what confuses me, from thinking this was a good jedi, he now wears a dark cloak, and the readme looks to me as if he may be a dark Jedi, but whatever :) The cloak looks good - It does have a few glitches i.e. transparency from the inside, but the hood style and textures used work very well. The third major skin is the same as the second, but without the hood. There are also red and blue team variations, and a whole load of bots to use :) So yeah, this is a very nice piece of work, and is definitely one of the better Jedi skins, but the thing that makes this shine is the model. Good work, and I am relieved to find there's no clan logos plastered onto him anywhere :) On a final note, the sounds included are top-class, but they dont fit with this guys appearance. However, they really are good, and the evil laught as a taunt is very amusing :) New Sounds: Yes Team Support: Yes Bot Support: Yes ~Szico VII~

Unfortunately it seems you are unable to choose an uncloaked Grievous as an NPC, which is somewhat of a problem because the cape hasn\'t been culled properly and it\'s perfectly see-through from the front. However you can choose an uncaped version of Grievous in single-player. I forget whether there was already a mod for this, though I think there was... But this also includes some other things, like some new NPC files. However for one of the NPC files you will need to download the magnaguard separately. Before you get all excited over a four-armed Grievous, make note that not only do the extra arms not move independently of the original two, but when you swing they become completely detached from the body, so it\'s really nowhere near as exciting as it sounds. Sorry! But if you\'re a Grievous fan you might want to give this a download and check to see if there\'s anything here that you\'ve been missing. ~Inyri




Ep3 Anakin Skywalker | 4.97 MB

but ... how? Where? What work has he done? What\'s been changed? Is it a recolor? I can\'t tell. Oh wait, is it because of those white spots on his robes? Seriously, this skin has completely stumped me. How is this supposed to resemble the Anakin Skywalker from Episode III at all? [/quote] Now what I find interesting is that this new Anakin, which is the final version from this author looks very much like this Anakin, by Broken Hope. Hmmm. Well, I can\'t say that either are really good skins. But ... well ... yeah. And quite frankly, the red and blue sleeves for the team skins look silly. At least he got the hand right this time. :) Bot Support: Yes Team Colors: Yes New Sounds: Yes ~AmosMagee




Padme Amidala - Episode II | 4.17 MB

three different styles. Padme with her cape, Padme without her cape, and a scratched Padme. It also has two different heads for Padme. A clean one and a dirty one, although it\'s hard to tell the difference. This was made for the MovieBattles mod, but that\'s just a side note. This uses SP support so that you can choose the outfit. which is great. I did notice some issues with the sounds, where it would start a Padme quote but would cut off at the very end. It was disconcerting, to say the least. I did find a wierd issue with the chest, where it would be dark on top and light on the bottom. I don\'t know if that\'s an issue with the shader or not, but it just looks unnatural. I didn\'t really quite catch many bugs, but thankfully the author did. Here is what was found: [quote]The only bugs that I have caught, were: Fanny-pack clipping through the cape when running with a weapon, Weapon tags on the left hand were messed up. So, a weapon that\'s in the left hand (only can be caused by dual sabers) will be floating behind the body. Force Lightning comes out of the left foot, when used. Sabers don\'t sit right, when holstered. [/quote] If you like moviebattles and want this, or if you just like Padme, give this a download.

Mustafar | 13.9 MB

duel? Are you kidding me? If you\'re asking that question, leave now. Seriously, get out of here and never call yourself a Star Wars fan again. Poseur. Okay, so this is a Mustafar map. And while I have some complaints about it, this is a really fun map to play. I didn\'t expect it to be because it\'s just this big pit of lava and some mountains and it just didn\'t seem like it would be. But trust me, it is. Let\'s get my complaints out of the way. I know you spent a lot of time on the skybox, Nozy and you did a decent job, but it just looks a bit cartoonish to me. I can definitely appreciate the time and effort you put into it though. Only other complaint I have is that the map is so small. Then again, that could be why it\'s so much fun. You jump and hope that you find a stable spot to land, then attack a bot (or person on a server) and hope you don\'t get pushed off. It\'s a lot of fun and I actually prefer it with guns. Sniping a bot from across lava is just ... fun. Great job with this map. And I can\'t wait for part 2!

JA+ V2.1 Client Side | 1.03 MB

distribute! 1.8 see's several improvements, a lot of them bug fixes, stuff like emotes being buggy. Speaking from a mapping perspective though I do have a problem with emotes, in my latest map I made a dialing Stargate and fans will know the wormhole blast kills you if you go near it...if a person uses an emote they can be in front of the gate as it activates and they'll be just fine...I think this mod would benefit from a mapper being able to work around emote's being a protection. The previous review(s) anyhow: Quote: -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Okay, a cascading quoting thing of reviews... or something: Quote: -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- My review of the last version of this mod: Quote: -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I happen to know for a fact that JA+ is a very popular mod and it continues to grow in popularity. I'm just going to go over a few features that were added to this version. Clan Speak: How cool is this? There's a clan password that you set and now clans can chat privately via the console. It's like the /amsay feature, but you don't have to be an admin to chat here. New Emotes: There are a few new emotes included like amdie, amkneel and amfinishinghim. Toggle Amthrow: Now admins can control which players can amthrow you. New Admin Commands: Included are amrename, amlockteam and amforceteam. Very helpful commands. Also, there is a little issue when your server.cfg has too many sets - apparently, this mod corrects that. All of this is new just for the 1.5 version. The 1.4 version has a lot more too. So take a look at the readme to find out all about what the author included. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Slider is quick with his updates to his JA+ mod. Version 1.6 includes the ability to scale your model, there's are new DFA's, you can allow or disallow the use of black names, several new emotes, and all of the old ones have been recoded. There are a ton of fixes and even more added features. In fact, just read the readme. There's too much to list. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Slider once again updates his very popular JA+ mod. There was apparently a nasty little bug that would crash servers with the use of force push or pull. No idea what that was all about - but glad it's fixed! Very interesting little thing added to help control a server. Now players can vote whether to sleep another player or not. Of course, this could be abused just like when you enable voting to kick another player. But it still might be useful on servers where there are some honorable regulars without admins present. Along with that new vote type, you can also, as the server admin decide which vote types you want to allow the server. Maybe you don't mind the players choosing the map they want to play on, but you don't want them voting to kick anyone. That's a great feature, Slider. And yay! Ampoll was added! This would be perfect for my CTF games. Often I just use ampsay to take a vote. There's a ton of stuff here, so read through the readme for all of the features that Slider included in 1.7. It seems that his mod keeps getting better and better. I wonder what he'll have for 1.8? Or maybe this is the final version? Nah ... mods like this are never really finished. ~AmosMagee -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Go those build up of quotes!...and I say JA+ V on the site so it's not over yet -WadeV1589- [/quote] Okay so this is the Client side version of the new JA+ Mod same as usual there are bug fixes including animations. Also there are two new force moves! One called Sith Kiss which is the same as drain. I do believe that this is the SP face grip thingie, didn't look at it too much myself. There is also a jedi only skill called force whirlwind which is used in close range to knock an enemy back. Static emotes are working again now, so you can't run around while sitting, new anti vote spam and anti macro spam and a load of other stuff which is included in the readme. -Mithran- (You can find a plethora of screenshots here: ~Amy)

Superman + Bonus Superpowers | 2.99 MB

looks pretty god, and I only have a few issues with it. First off is the face. While it may not look like superman, it looks kind of...freaky...meh. Freaky can be good. The other thing is the \"S\" on the chest isn\'t a \"S\". But this isn\'t the author\'s fault. The skin map for the file is a refletion of the chest, so only half the symbol is there. But the skin itself looks cool. But the other effects are cooler. You get superman\'s powers! Yes, that\'s right! The author has tweaked with effects, and used parts from his own DBZ mod to give superman all of his powers! You can fly, use laser vision, and more! This is certainly a cool pack, and I think I\'ll keep it, just for it\'s coolness. Sure, it doesn\'t look like superman, but who cares? You get his superpowers!

A Great and Majestic Empire - Episode I | 20.34 MB

there is a bit of language here and there. Each episode is anywhere from three to six minutes long. So they\'re large downloads. But the series was done well, and is worth the download! Stormtroopers. Am I the only one who just thinks they\'re funny? I mean, just in general. If I look at one long enough, I start giggling. So I love that Stormtroopers were used in this little story. The first installment of this six-part (maybe more?) series introduces us to two Stormtroopers who are very bored with their day. In fact, they\'re so bored, they stand there talking about just how bored they are. Though it doesn\'t sound like a great plot for a film, this is actually quite entertaining. The \"acting\" is done quite well, the voices are great, the camera angles and the music and sound effects are perfect. Sure, the beginning scene is a bit choppy, but after that, the camera doesn\'t move much, so it goes much smoother. I did laugh at a few of the clever quips. The dialogue was great. I can\'t wait to see the next installment! Oh, I don\'t have to wait - it\'s right here. :) Yay! Stay tuned for 5 more reviews of these cute little JK2/JA film clips! ~AmosMagee




Darth Maul SP | 693.78 KB

comes under a new species, it had no name, i.e. the species box was blank - this really need to be added in all SP skins otherwise you get a horrific blank box that can cause problems if you remove the skin later. Anyway so what does Darth Maul look like? According to this skin he's shaped like a reborn, has one of the most cheekiest smiles you're gonna come across, the "How you doin?" type of smile and is scary in a rather warm and affectionate way. I'm sorry to say although the skin has the detail of the tatooed face and is indeed in dark cloths...I don't see a very strong Darth Maul, more a Half Maul. There are no new sounds, so you'll get a Jaden-esque Maul as well. -WadeV1589-




Silver Dragon | 1.45 MB

to mimic something that already exists. Is this that? Could be. It\'s certainly not a Jedi, though, and definitely has a unique flaire. My favorite part, oddly enough, is the hands. How many of you modellers out there use Raven\'s hands? Or learned your technique from them? *raises her hand* This author wouldn\'t have that, however. He seems to have made his hands from scratch, with the biggest difference being there are three, not four, fingers. The claws on each finger are also unique. My second favorite part is the head, and wouldn\'t you know it, the mouth even moves! Personally I\'d rather replace Desann with this model if it was JO compatible. He just looks so much nastier than Desann ever was, and Desann was pretty cool in my books. Now to the technical aspects. What makes this model so neat is the skin has a specular shine to it, giving it the impression of being armored scales. It\'s very subtle, so it\'s not over the top and metal-looking. The deformation looks pretty good too, especially considering it\'s a first model. What I\'m not so fond of is the very grainy look of the textures, which luckily you won\'t notice much unless you\'re looking at it very close-up, or looking directly at the textures, as I have a tendency to do. Other than that, however, the skin looks fantastic, as does the model. And on top of all that, it has single player support. Always excellent. I\'d recommend this to everyone except... well, nevermind. I recommend it to everyone. I mean really, who doesn\'t like dragons? If you can stomach lightsabers, the Force, and Wookiees, I don\'t think a silver dragon is out of the question ;) Bot Support: Yes Team Support: Yes New Sounds: Desann\'s NPC Support: No ~Inyri




Episode III Jedi Starfighter | 5.76 MB

to find one that suits you. Here is a list of the features you\'ll find with this model: -Multiple versions including an Anakins, Obi-Wan\'s, Vader\'s, Plo Koons, Yoda\'s, and a Hot Rod design. -Animated wing foils -- can be flown with wing foils in the open or closed position. -To fly with the wing foils open, simply perform a normal take off allowing the animation to be initiated. -To fly with the wing foil closed, begin a normal take off, then press forward soon after take off making sure to do so before the animation can begin. - -Primary weapon fire -- green imperial lasers -Secondary weapon fire -- missile\'s -Barrel Roll -- using the \"Step Left\" and \"Step Right\" buttons (which I strongly suggest you reverse) will allow you to barrel roll and control the vehicle in a manner very much like the way they were flown in the movie. Be sure to read the readme for important information on how to use this vehicle, and enjoy! ~Inyri




The Kempy Map | 6.25 MB

1 of 4 dueling areas or the bar/GTK room (the one below with the GTKRad sign in it :)) Most of the architecture is simple and yet is still very pleasing, the dueling areas all have their own viewing galleries and the area's to duel and spacious and look good without killing FPS. Each area has its own color scheme, nothing too bright, nothing too drab while the bar is still mellow but has 'warm' lighting and textures - Changing Rooms eat your heart out. The trees use alpha shadows to cast nice looking shadows on the surroundin terrain - a small thing which adds detail and looks good. One place that does look odd is the outside area (green portal), the rock faces are too blocky, I'd recommend next time using the surface generator in the plugins menu to get a simple but varied rock fack. Also most of the lighting seems to appear from nowhere...I don't see many light emitting sources but everywhere is still lit. This map works for both Duel and FFA but it's best in FFA so all 4 duel rooms can be used simulatenously with on-looking spectators. New Textures: Yes New Sounds: No Bot Support: No -WadeV1589-




Custom Lightsaber Pack | 1.58 MB

but keeping the same style, I especially like the one with the blue stripes (4th saber down in the screenshot), There\'s also shaders which is a big plus for me, too often are there saber hilts submitted without shaders and kinda degrades the realism from it in game. The pack also include the hilts to be used in Single Player, which I\'m sure will please you SP fans. All round good saber models here, I\'m really impressed with a few of them and may even consider uploading them to my clan’s server. Trauma also made these on his Birthday! So everyone remember to wish him a Happy Birthday -Rink




Secret Apprentice Saber Stance

jacobstance.rar | 7.88 MB

mod working on the Red stance, it acutely is put on to the Staff instead. And even then both blades have to be going for it to even work. Another thing i noticed is the hand isn't closing all the way around the staff, so he's just kinda holding it open handed. The only other things i noticed was the pk3 eather has to be placed in the Base folder, or for me it had to go in to the JA+ folder. Other then the glitch with the hand and the mod working on the staff this mod is still a nice addition to your game play. ~T89T




Zeus Academy Ladder | 2.14 MB

simply walk to the top. When I did go down to fight, the enemies were easy to defeat, and they just kept respawning. Maybe it\'s good practice? The \"objective\" of this map is to get to the top of the map, after fighting your way through enemies. Again, this is basically useless because I was never able to \"pass\" the mission. The map itself is somewhat well designed. It is well lit, and has various different methods of getting to the top, like stairwells, statues, etc. The idea of this map/mod is good, though it defeats itself. If there were some way to make the mission end when you reach the top, then it would be worth it. Also, it should be a much longer road to the top, and your character should spawn at the very bottom, not close to the top. This might be a good download if you are just looking to kill some time... well, killing! ~Lord Griever~ [b]New Textures - Yes Bot Support - Yes New Music - Yes[/b]

So just download this little file, toss it in the base folder and you can access the SP maps much easier - y\'know, through the menu. ~AmosMagee




Stargate Atlantis | 25.17 MB

was going to be to the last one I reviewed. As last time, the first thing that hit me when I explored this map was that its HUGE! There really is plenty of things to do in this map, there’s plenty of places to explore, and a feature that I always love in a map….flyable custom vehicles! Let me start off with the main area, unlike last time, now I have been able to actually watch some of Stargate Atlantis on the TV, so now I have the advantage of knowing more about what the main area looks like in the program. The place you start off in is rather barren, and there’s nothing but snow and fog all around, but I presume its supposed to be in Antarctica or something? So I suppose that would be quite realistic for the setting! Mind you, if you explore a bit, you will come to a small rocky area, that is filled with Wampas! Now I don’t think there are really Wampas in Antarctica…so lets just say they are Polar Bears ;) Once through the Stargate (hopefully with no Wampas following lol) you will end up in the main area of the Atlantis City complex thing (or whatever this Atlantis thing is supposed to be :S well sorry :P…I didn’t see THAT much of the program, so I still don’t know what it is, just what it looks like lol). There are quite a few cool features in this area, the architecture is good, and it does indeed look like the setting in the TV show, I love the cool bluish windows at the opposite end to where the Stargate is, and the great skybox! Go up to the main control area, and there is a button you can push which seals the Stargate with what looks like a force field version of the ‘Iris’ from the original Stargate Series. I remember in the last SG Atlantis map I reviewed, when you come through the Stargate, on the left side of the large area you come into was some kind of conference room. But when I looked around this map, I couldn’t find it! There was just a wall there…or so I thought… I had a hunch…so I pressed my use button on the ‘wall’ and hey presto, it opened up to reveal a large conference room type area behind it! The way the wall just opened up was sooo cool. Absolutely brilliant! Travel up some stairs on your right as you come through the Stargate, and you will end up in what can only be described as a hangar for Puddle Jumpers I *think* they are called. The real skill here is actually getting the things out of the hangar! Its pretty difficult to take off in such a small place and then get out of the roof opening without blowing up! But once outside there is PLENTY of room to have an air battle, there’s even some turbo laser turrets scattered around to make things more interesting. Overall there were a lot of cool things in this map, which included some subtle things that just make it look better, like the patterns in the glass that look a bit like etching or something. But as with all maps there are always things that can be improved upon. Even for all the good points, there is still quite a lot of stuff that could be done to this map to improve it. Overall the lighting isn’t too bad, but in some places its very harsh, and bright, and it doesn’t appear to be coming from an actual light source, like a light on the ceiling or anything, it sometimes just looks like its floating. However, with all the different kinds of light fittings spread out in this map, I imagine the lighting would be quite difficult anyway. Probably the biggest problem though is the large amount of z-fighting (for anyone who doesn’t know what that means its when two objects, like say walls, occupy the same space, so as you move through the room the wall will appear to flicker. Because there are 2 walls in exactly the same area, the game doesn’t know which one to draw or something like that. Correct me if I’m wrong lol). The fps is also quite bad in places, but that’s understandable with a map this size. Oh and also, there no music! :( Not a bad map here, like with the last Stargate Atlantis map, if your into the TV program you might like this ;) Bot Support: No New Textures: Yes New Sounds: Yes New Music: No Game Types: FFA, TFFA, CTF ~Nozyspy~




EA Mace Windu | 4.37 MB

rather nice effort. The drawback, however, is that this skin unfortunately doesn't seem to look too much like Samuel L. Jackson's character one bit, nay it does not. I say this simply because Mr. Jackson's visage is BURNED INTO MY MINDS RETINAS. The face simply doesn't match. It looks like some other black jedi to be honest. However, while inaccurate, the skin itself is still wonderfully textured. Maybe a little more face tweaking and victory will be yours. Another semi-concern of mine was the choice of soundset selection. It's not so much of accuracy as it was the place the sound was placed in. (Taunt, gloat, victory.) Some of the sounds sounded inappropriate for a taunt. Download the file and cycle through; I believe you humans will agree that the sounds seem a little "untauntly" All in all, however, I believe this will tide you over sufficiently. Not only does it have team skins, but different versions with a robe and a hooded robe. Diehard or not, I would suggest a ransom of bandwidth to check it out. =_,= Now to burn down that little hopeless village I moved next to.

Clone Wars Aayla Secura and Quinlan Vos (with SP support) | 9.48 MB

so I am told), and has new shaders and sounds, bot support, and npc support! As far as I can tell these skins have been completely redone. While the skins don’t look too bad, they look…raw….like I can really see the blurring. But then again, I’m looking at it close-up in modview. (Yes, I did look at the skins in the game) Anyways, I can see most of the lines that some of the skinning was blended from, but then, there’s always SOME of those lines left. I must say that it would be mean to nit-pick on those little things, so I’ll just say make the skin more defined. Now that was for the Aayla skin. Onto the Quinlan Vos skin! As with the Aayla skin, some of the things look kind of blurred, but not too blurred so that you don’t know what it is, especially from a distance. Which is where the skins will be viewed: from a distance. So the blurring doesn’t really matter since you’ll be able to see it all just fine from in game. As I said before, these do have new shaders, so they’ll look pretty nice. Bot Support: Yes Team Support: Yes Npc Support: Yes New Sounds: Yes ~Zach




Yuna | 6.46 MB

with it. I'm a Final Fantasy freak and love everything Final Fantasy, so when this beauty came along it made my day. The hair, the clothes, the skin, the face - everything about this is nigh-on exact to the games. I can only think of one or two points to criticise, and even then I'm nitpicking. Firstly, the face isn't as spot on as the rest of the skin. Yes, it's still amazing, but at a close glance there are a few irregularities. Secondly (and now I'm REALLY nitpicking) was with the skins shown in the second screenshot. In Final Fantasy X, Yuna's dress didn't quite expand as wide as that about her waist, it makes her look a little fatter ;) But apart from that, this model is brilliant. It has all the neat touches and details from the game, and I'm most impressed that they've managed to avoid any noticeable clipping errors with the hanging down dress thing she wears in the first screenshot. There were some when executing moves, but trust me, you won't notice them :D There are 3 skins for this model - Yuna from FFX, Yuna (Gunner Dressphere) from FFX-2 and Yuna (Songstress Dressphere) from FFX-2. All three are intricately textured and detailed to the finest detail, but my favourite has to be the Gunner skin. It's just so spot-on! The others are pretty much as well, but the first one just reminds me of the game more than the other two. There are new sounds taken from the games, which are fine, as they sound like the real thing. I think the author could have found some more interesting ones though, especially for the angry noises (Yuna throws some real fits in FFX-2 ;) ) but aside from personal preference there's nothing wrong with these. No team skins however, and personally I wouldn't really mind as the original ones are brilliant, but maybe if you're making a v2 which is more customised to JA you should include team skins. Bot support too! I'd really enjoy some bot support here :) New Sounds: Yes Team Support: No Bot Support: No ~Szico VII~




Hitler | 1.66 MB

thing is certain - he was a compelling speaker. I'll try not to add my opinion here. The subject is sensitive and many people have very strong views on either side. Barada admits that his Hitler skin has no original artwork on it, but I applaud his effort for making the skin and making it look good anyhow. :) The textures are perfect, and the mustache looks great. The nose seems a bit sharp - but hey, the model does have limitations. The team support is predictable. The armband simply changes to blue when you're using the blue skin. I'm not quite sure I understand what the taunt is saying, but it works with the skin somehow. Bot support is a good addition for those of you who would like to take out your anger on Hitler. This is a decent skin, but a touchy topic. Good controversial piece, Barada. Bot Support: Yes Team Colors: Yes New Sounds: Yes ~AmosMagee




Imperial Dreadnaught Final v 1.3 | 13.01 MB

review a map that reminds me of them, that’s definitely good! This map really does have that JK2 flavour to it, its an Imperial Dreadnaught, and the interior and layout, reminds me a little of the Doomgiver level from JK2 SP. Its massive! The corridors seem to go on forever, and its easy to get lost, which is actually a good thing in a map like this, because it makes it so much more fun, never knowing who or what might be around the corner ;) There are loads of rooms, and lots of crawlspaces, that make you feel like your in the bowels of the ship. This is an excellent map for an RPG! Oh no, I’m not finished yet, there’s tons more cool features to come yet :) This map actually has….WORKING ladders! Yes, actual ladders up the wall that you can CLIMB. That’s so cool! Theres ladders all over the place, and its especially cool when they take you to crawlspaces, which have all these fuel lines n’ stuff in them :) Theres more, there are loads of control panels and stuff like that, especially in the bridge which, when pressed, make noises or do certain things, I noticed one control panel in the bridge made hyperspace appear outside the windows! No, im not finished, there is yet more! Make sure you read the Functions List.txt in the zip file, that tells you all the neat stuff you can do on this map. You can go inside the imperial shuttle, which takes you to Hoth below (part of the base JKA Hoth Siege map), where you can go inside an ATAT!!! One of the best things was that you could see the dreadnaught in the skybox from the cockpit of the Imperial shuttle, nice touch there! The only things I didn’t really like were that on some of the models, the textures were all black (I think this is caused because the model was only designed to work for single player or something, that’s what I heard anyway :S ) And it could do with bot support, it would be an even cooler map then :) (if you want to know how to do bot support, read this: it works for both JK2 and JKA) But apart from that its an excellent map, which would be great for RPG’s, with its winding corridors, medical room, shooting gallery, and lots of other rooms :) Well done mate!

EA Obi Wan Kenobi | 5.09 MB

had its share of improvement. Now I'm no expert in this field, but it would appear that our authorial friend here decided to photosource Mr. Kenobi's face. Either that, or I retarded.(or both =_=) Combining it over the rest of the attire, I definitely have to say that it mixed in quite efficiently, with a grace that seems to make Obi Wan almost leap out and strangle spider monkeys. There are a good number of versions, some good, some not. The Battle Worn and 2 default skins are excellent, and I've no complaints about the robes =_=. The General Kenobi skin, however, seems a bit...well, the only word that comes to mind is "ghetto". Case in point, the robe's brown sleeves were removed to make way for the white sleeves. I don't know what this was intending to do, but it just seems very unflattering. Other than that, it was rather appealing. The sad thing is: the sounds don't work. Poor lad forgot to change the sounds.cfg XD Another oddity to note is that the pk3 contains two additional PK3s O_o One built for SP Support, and the other being just a general skin. I wouldn't have suggested doing it in that manner, but I supposse if you have Winzip experience, you can oust the pk3 you do not wish to have. Overall, the skinpack is visually appealing I suppose. Personally, I don't see myself using it, but perhaps you the masses will enjoy it =_=. That being said, I think you should all immediately submit bandwidth and then pay Averus $50 US Currency or your country's equivilant =_,=.[/quote]This minor update fixes both the sounds as well as fixing the nested PK3 issue.

The Ancient Threat Episode I: The Orthand Mystery | 57.44 MB

just don't have time for such complicated levels! Honestly I love them. The mapping is great, the levels are really tricky (or I'm really dumb... :p), an the voice acting is even pretty good. I realized halfway through I had my subtites off, and since the person on the other end of the comlink is basically speaking jibberish I was wondering why I was confused. I'm going to let the screenshots speak mostly for themselves in terms of the architecture of the maps in this Single-Player mod. The maps themselves are tricky to get around. Especially that first one. I don't know how many times I died before I finally turned my brightness up, though that removed some of the challenge. I would have appreciated something more of an introductory cutscene, to find out a little bit more about our main character, but all in all it seems well thought out and well completed. It's no easy task to complete each level, and that's part of the appeal. Definitely worth a download. As soon as I get a few spare minutes I'm going to go finish up those last three levels ;) ~Inyri




Movie Academy | 38.06 MB

FFA map and it\'s actually pretty decent just like that. I don\'t like the way the weapons were done here and I feel it should be used as a saber only map, but that\'s just me. But the heart of this map is downstairs. It\'s a theater. It has couches and a huge movie theater screen with the curtains and everything. Press the button on the right and the curtains part. Press the button on the left and you can watch the Episode III trailer. Keep an eye out for this map to be updated by James in the near future - for this will be where you\'ll be able to see the teasers for his next maps. :D Brilliant idea, pretty map set in Coruscant and it\'s just ... great, James.

Samurai Model | 1.14 MB

katanas. The mask and helmet are very detailed and interesting to gaze upon. I didn\'t notice any problems with weighting, but I didn\'t play with it much. The team skins for the first model are what you\'d expect, and they look wonderful. The second model features a maskless warrior who has a very serious look about him. Nice facial hair, too. The third Samurai there is actually no helmet or mask and is considered the \"Archer\". He looks great. According to the readme, these models were inspired by The Last Samurai and I\'m quite pleased with them. The only thing that disappoints me is that there weren\'t any new sounds done. Please, please update this model with sounds. And do more models. :D Bot Support: Yes Team Colors: Yes New Sounds: No ~AmosMagee




The Jan Collection for JA | 13.03 MB

one you see in the screenshot there is also known as Jan Red. It\'s lovely skin of Jan in a suit that seems to have had a run-in with a sharp pair of scissors. But the cutouts are tasteful. Jan Roses is the second skin included here, which is a lovely two-piece that has a floral-like design on it. I\'m guessing this was one of Plasma\'s first skins, because the other skins improved so much compared to this one. The third skin is Jan Pink, which features Jan in corset type lingerie. It doesn\'t just come in pink though. You can get the yellow, red, blue or lavender version. They\'re all very pretty. My favorite in this pack has to be Jan Silver. Once again, Plasma sticks with lingerie, but this skin has a more delicate look to it. A thin, lacy skirt covers the bottom half of the piece. And the final skin from Plasma is Jan X. It\'s a nice skin, but not one I\'d use myself. It was made in honor of JK2 being released on X-Box. So she has the X-Box logo on her back. All of the skins are great, and each one has at least the blue and red team skins, but not as team support. They\'re selectable in the menu seperately. It\'s nice to see Plasma bringing his skins to Jedi Academy, but I\'d be more excited to see Plasma create some feminine skins fresh for JA!

Human Male Clothes Skins Pack | 3 MB

And believe me when I say it looks absolutely AWESOME! :D It\'s still the jaden model, but the author has remade the top, legs, and even altered his eyes. It is a re-skin, but it is a brilliant reskin. Jaden now wears some kind of futuristical armour, which looks a little like Vegeta\'s armour in DBZ, but there are some seethrough bits, where the author has applied the most cool shader affect I have seen in quite a while ;) He says it\'s suppossed to look like the energy of the character running through the person, and it does. Amazing work. The legs he has added also have the cool effect, but instead they\'re like a stripe going down the outer leg - image the adidas stripe on a pair of tracksuit bottoms and you\'ll see what I mean. Other skinners are going to have to work hard in order to beat this! :) Overall, a must download for all Jedi Knight 3 owners. The only thing i ask is that the author remakes this as an MP skin! I can\'t wait for a cool skin like that in MP. Brilliant work dude 10/10 :D ~Szico VII~




HS_Gweth_Kelia | 13.9 MB

ultimate female model that will replace Leela and hurt her feelings and make her cry, where I shall promptly laugh and then cleave through both their skulls. The result of this effort? Hapslash quality. Need I say more? Okay fine, it's really good, but it's not really not that thrilling to me. However, I'm sure the female players are rejoicing like crazy and will probably roar at me for not giving a rave review of this sensational model. I wasn't thrilled with the soundsets on Gweth at all. Apparantly they're from Babylon 5. They sounded like some uppity crank feminist who hasn't slept in five years and needs to be hit over the head with a scythe. The sound quality is decent, minus one gloating sound. Is it good overall? Yeah, definitely. I just can't say it's THAT great just because it feels like Hapslash sold out. That may not be the case, but I don't plan on playing Sherlock Holmes to find out the motive behind this model. Surrender your bandwidth immediately, lest I cleave you with a scythe myself.

Terminative 3 Home | 21.72 MB

JKFiles record that has been broken today! ;) It’s good though that the author chose to show as much of the map as possible, because this is a pretty incredible map! This is basically one huge training map, designed to hone your skills ingame. Though this was obviously designed for the Term!native 3 community, this is definitely a map that I would recommend to any clan or gaming community. The logos and references to the Term!native 3 community are pretty unintrusive and I think the training features in this map would be a fantastic asset for any clan. So, what kind of facilities does this map have? Well, one of my favourite features was the huge static training room, which features one of those rotating ‘jump & duck’ bars (though be careful not to get hit by it or you will be killed!) and various targets raging in size to test your aiming skills. It also has an area with two concentric circles, a small one inside of a larger one, with a button that spawns a Kyle in the center. The idea I think is that you have to use your saber skills to kill the Kyle bot without leaving the circles thus honing your close quarters combat skills. This is just one room though, which is accessed off a corridor, which is in turn accessed off the central hub, which leads to all the different areas. Other features include a duel room, two bot training rooms and a jump training area where you can spawn Kyle bot’s which fly around the room in various ways, helping you to practice your jumping attacks. There is an area that has three corridors filled with that I presume to be water. In these corridors are platforms spaced at regular intervals, with the spacing getting wider in the next corridor along. This area is I presume a place to practice your jumping techniques and accuracy. If you fall short of the platforms however and land in the water, you will be teleported back to the beginning! Yet another room is the interestingly named ‘Mysterious Pit’ room. Basically this features a big pit that opens up in the floor and, via the use of multiple buttons on the wall, you can customise with platforms and walkways that extend out into the pit to create a tailor-made duelling area! There is also kind of secret ‘council room’ type area. This last area has a very nifty method for accessing it… it has a combination lock! Outside of the doors to the ‘restricted area’ is a giant combination lock where you have to change the numbers to the correct code to open the doors. This I think, is a fantastic idea. It looks good and is a very nifty little feature that helps set this maps ‘council room’ apart from those of other clan themed maps. One other small, but clever idea are the little signs on the floor in various places instructing you not to stand there. Why? Well, because they are teleporter pads! When you use a teleporter (of which there are quite a few in the map) you will land on one of these pads, obviously you don’t want someone else to be stood there when you teleport in, otherwise you will crush them, sending them to an untimely demise. These notices are a clever little feature which should prevent people from being killed unnecessarily whilst on this map! (Health and Safety for the win!…) There are quite a few other features here as well, but it would take too long to mention them all, besides I want to leave something for you guys to discover for yourselves! ;) As for improvements, well to be honest there isn’t much I can think of that could be improved here. I would suggest though, if there is ever another version made of this map, that you add some more duel rooms, because one really isn’t enough to be honest. Other than that, I did notice a few missing textures, but these were few and far between and weren’t that noticeable anyway. Overall then an excellent map here, one that I wish had been around when I was in a clan; we could have used this kind of map for clan rank trials and such! If you are a clan leader looking for a new map or just like the look of this map, then be sure to give it a download!

that it looks much different from the model that the skinner used. But he does seem to have a bit more of a clean-cut look about him. Team support is included, but I didn\'t notice any difference between the default skin and the team skins. There\'s bot support for this skin too. The sounds probably aren\'t anything new to anyone, since they\'re just taken from the movies. This isn\'t a jaw-dropping skin, but it looks fine. Don\'t take my word for it - download it and decide for yourself. :) Bot Support: Yes Team Colors: Yes New Sounds: Yes ~AmosMagee




Nina Mod 1.5 | 36.19 MB

As a result, she is neither Sith nor Jedi, but is host to a number of neutral powers and one power of each side of the force. I believe the author describes her well when he says: "But talk about money with her, and she’ll become your best friend." Larry has proven that he has a firm grasp of Radiant with this latest addition to the Nina storyline. If you want to see the original review and screenshots, go here. In addition to the original mod, Larry has added a third level to the mod based on Tatooine. He has done a wonderful job of capturing the SW feel to his levels, even though I think he could have supported it with a better storyline or more expansive levels. The only bug in the mod was the lack of voices. There ARE cutscenes, but the author seems to have left out the audio bytes for each scene. Overall, I felt wanting for bigger, more including levels. A custom skin for the heroine wouldn't have hurt as well. -Sared




AIMod (beta 5.0) | 1.07 MB

often play against bots, I can\'t really compare anything. But I did notice that the bots were much more chatty. Rosh was taunting me with several different taunts while trying to kill me. Besides the bot A.I. (Artificial Intelligence), the author also included some new gametypes. The ones I tried were Co-op and RPG. With the Co-op sub-gametype, I did find a couple of Jedi who helped me kill some Reborn here and there, but they wouldn\'t follow me around the map - I kinda had to bring the bad guys to them. With the RPG gametype, I really wasn\'t sure how that was supposed to work because the NPC\'s didn\'t react any differently to my presence. They still tried to kill me. There are some other gametypes to choose from. Look in the readme for more. :) One of the biggest and best features of this mod are the new saber stances and specials. If you\'ll take a look at the first screenshot there, you\'ll see that the first stance is just the Dual-bladed saber with one saber turned off, but then we get into the more interesting stances. I didn\'t test each stance, but I found some new special moves with some of the new stances. Not only are there new stances for the Dual-bladed saber, but there are also a few new ones for the single saber, when using the Dual-bladed saber. (Hope that made sense.) The fourth screenshot will show you the first of the Dual Sabers stances. The first one should be recognizable, but the following stances are all new. The eighth screenshot below will show you the basic stances for the Single Saber. Light, medium and heavy (or blue, yellow and red) - then following those are 7 new stances for the single saber. I believe there was a special for each new stance, maybe not. There is a screenshot there, showing just two of the new specials. Very cool looking. :) I had fun playing this mod, but it\'s not something that I would play for long. As I\'ve stated before in other reviews, I just don\'t like changing the game too much. But this might be a refreshing change for when you get tired of the same old gameplay. :) My only major complaint would be that the author didn\'t include real specific instructions on how to play each gametype, or any description at all. Hopefully with your next update, you\'ll have a more comprehensive readme! :) ~AmosMagee




KOTOR Flight School Final | 43.67 MB

where opposite teams spawn on different bases, fly out, and try to destroy the other base. I was impressed by the hangar bays, where the doors would actually open when you went close to them, and how there were some nice bomber bays in the imperial base. Although…I was disappointed at how biased this map towards imperials. To destroy the rebel base, you can just attack the big tanks on it, which are easy to hit. For the imperial base, you have to fly inside the base and hit little tiny targets. And there isn’t that much flying space either. But other than that, my biggest complaint was that if you leave your ship while within space, you fall. You don’t die until you reach a certain point, you just fall. Another thing is that this map uses (in likelyhood) JA+ animations, or some animations that I didn’t have, because when I died I would sometimes go into a T pose, and I was running a clean base folder so I could use all the vehicles. I liked how this map included several different vehicles you could choose from. (which are interchangeable) I also liked how you could control turrets within the map. Imagine CTF games on this map…those could be fun… with a moderately populated server. There are several things in this map that need improving, like the things I mentioned, but I still liked it a lot. Oh! I almost forgot! When playing in BaseJKA, whenever I attacked and destroyed part of a base, it would broadcast a message using underscores. Encompass the message in quotes, and you shouldn’t have that problem. It might not work, but then it might. Bot Support: Yes New Vehicles: Yes New Music: Yes Gametypes: FFA, TFFA, CTF ~Zach

Agent Smith | 11.13 MB

from the Matrix trilogy. Considering the limitations of the model, this is a pretty good version. The suit looks good and his expression seems accurate enough. The most unfortunate part about this skin is the hairline. Maybe that line could\'ve been blended better, I dunno. It could just be one of those limitations of the model kinda thing. I really, really like what the author opted to do for team skins. Though, the red skin is kinda missing his torso. It seems he was just going for that Agent Smith without his glasses look and then the blue skin ... the blue skin! It\'s the creepy - wait. I shouldn\'t go on because it might spoil it for those who haven\'t seen all three movies yet. Okay, so it\'s just a cool little skin of some dude. There is bot support, and I just told you about the team support and there are a bunch of new taunts. However, none of them worked in-game. :( I look forward to an update of this skin! Ohhh ... one more thing ... yes, this skin\'s file size is HUGE. It\'s because the author included some duel music from the Matrix. He claims it\'s worth it. :) Bot Support: Yes Team Colors: Yes New Sounds: Yes ~AmosMagee

I don\'t think I will ever see such a good-looking vehicle model. The detail is amazing even beautiful. There is so much work put into this, Duncan and Monsoontide make a very good team. There is a very big explosion with the new weapon it has so it blows up twice and destroys you to shreds.

Taris RP | 56.5 MB

maps". It's a nice coincidence that this Taris RP map is being released while the Taris mapping contest is going on. Some of you probably remember Cydon (Ki_Adi_Mundi) for his Yalara roleplaying map which was a very nicely made map for roleplaying but was really lacking in the visuals, something that really turned some people off the map. He returns now after having "set out to do better, even if only slightly" with a map based on Taris, and I've got to say that he succeeded. [b]Accuracy:[/b] I want to start off by first of all saying that this isn't a map that was built to replicate the KotOR version of Taris. Everyone who's played Knights of the Old Republic knows that Taris got the $*#@ blown out of it by Malak's sith fleet, and so seeing as this is set over 4,000 years after that we can guess that the city was rebuilt and obviously the passage of time has changed some things as well. With that said, there's no mistaking that this is definitely Taris. Everything from the architecture to the sky, lighting, and of course the KotOR music just screams 'TARIS!' I was confused how the author calls Taris' lower levels the 'Undercity' when the undercity was ACTUALLY that dark and scary place on the floor of the planet that housed horrible monsters like Rakghouls and Igear. [b]Content:[/b] To say this map is a [i]large[/i] map for roleplaying is an understatement - this map is massive. You start off near one of two ships, either on the upper levels by a Republic dropship or in a lower-level hangar outside a familiar Nabooan ship which, by the way, is enterable and features all you'd expect from a ship including a briefing room, crew bunks, bridge, refrigerator, and more (I couldn't find a bathroom though... WHY DOESN'T ANYONE IN STAR WARS EVER HAVE TO GO TO THE BATHROOM?!) If you start in the upper level then you can go down one of those suspended walkways that Taris is so famous for and visit a number of locations. You've got a nice upper brow cantina; a government building complete with senate room and military base (Which in and of itself has a ton of content, including a shooting range, armory, and prison); and various other rooms for different government or military purposes (Who knows half of what those crazy feds do?) There's also a Jedi Temple with some really cool things like a display of floating rocks in the center of the entrance area, a nice library, a council room, and basically everything you'd expect from your average Jedi Temple. Also on the upper level is a door that leads to a nice lift-area that takes you to the lower levels, specifically a starport area (The area that houses the other spawnpoint at the Naboo shuttle). This then leads out to a dark and grimy lower area with a bunch of doors as you walk down. The doors lead to a bank (Which I thought was kind of odd to have on the lower level rather than the upper level); a cantina akin to the one in KotOR complete with crime lord throne, singing lounge, and combat arena, however the arena isn't even close to the complexity of the KotOR arena which was like an actual gladiator pit - this one is just a small sand box in the floor. Then you, of course, have the sewers which KotOR made so famous. In short, there's a lot to do on this map. [b]Visuals[/b] Yalara had potential to look great but the lack of appropriate lighting, some weird terrain bugs and too simple architecture, and a really bad choice of textures in some areas just destroyed that potential. The author took just about all they they did wrong in the last map and did it [i]right[/i] in this one - probably for the better because Taris is cooler than Yalara anyway. The very first thing I can say is that this looks like Taris. The architecture fits and the lighting is great in almost every area, from the Taris sky to the grimy lower level. There are a few places that look worse than the others due to what I guess would just be low-quality architecture and/or textures, such as in the senate room which looks too blocky. There are other areas, however, where the quality of the map really shines, such as in the main chamber in the Jedi temple or the entire outside plaza of the upper levels. Something that caught my eye was how the author makes use of a lot of sprites to make it look like air traffic is busy all over Taris, and it works really, really well on the upper levels as you look at the criss-crossing lanes of traffic in the sky. Unfortunately when this is attempted in the lower levels outside a window, the effect doesn't look nearly as good; just looks like 2D toy ships flying 3 feet away. The lighting is very well done, more more so than in the Yalara map and makes a wide use of shadows and actual light sources rather than just blanket lighting. It makes the map look so nice. [b]Conclusion[/b] All in all this is a very nice map and definitely an improvement in quality over Cydon's last project. ~Laam'inui




JA Unlimited | 1.09 MB

no visible limits on how many sabers you could actually have, but I guess I may have been wrong or I simply never had that many sabers. Even if you were under the limits, though, only twenty or so appeared on the list and the console was necessary for the others. With JA Unlimited, virtually all sabers will appear on the menu (obviously it's not really unlimited, but it may as well be) and there ceiling limit on how many you can have has been turned into the roof limit - 'tis much higher. Higher than I was able to reach with every lightsaber, sword, baseball bat, axe, halberd, polearm, voulge and God-only-knows-what-else I could procure from JKFiles. Since saber switching via /saber only appears to work in JA+, this is great for anyone not using these mods, since you no longer need to know the .sab designations to load your sabers. - Maps Again, you can usually have as many maps as you'll need, but now they'll all show on the menu so that you don't need to open pk3s in Pakscape/PakRat (shout-out for you Maccies out there ;) ), find the bsp name and use /devmap to load your maps. Great improvement in my book, helpful for those who don't check map pk3s by default, or don't know how to. - NPCs Now, this one you did have a limit on, and that limit is basically kaput. You can now have as many NPCs as you'll need - again, I'm figuring 65535 being the ceiling limit, but you'll probably never reach that many - without that pesky ".npc extensions are too large!" error in multiplayer. Score one for no annoyances! - Vehicles Oh yeah. Now we're talkin'. If you're like me and enjoy going to town with some serious vehicular manslaughter, again, this is the mod for you. No more .veh extensions errors, and the error with .vwp files (which were still at factory limits in the last release) is now fixed, so you can have as much firepower as you need in the base folder. - Models / Skins Considering the game can hold as many models/skins as you can use, I always found it kinda dopey that there was a limit on the amount of icons, but that limit is now gone. - Species Selections The limit was previously 32. Now, it's... what is it again? 65535 or something like that? Ain't that quite a resume? [b]Disclaimers[/b] ► This will [b]not[/b] work in the singleplayer game - source code for the SP DLLs was never released. Strictly MP only, sorry folks. ► Naturally, SP won't work at all if you're over any limits, so basically, my advice: don't put mods in base, make a seperate mod folder for this and dump your files in there, then launch this mod via .bat file. That way you can have as much as you need in MP, without shafting SP. ► Limits are there for reasons, as Kat Angel quite rightly states in the readme. Even though this mod means the game won't object to extreme amounts of mods, please try and factor in how much the iD Tech 3 engine can handle, and how much your computer can handle. If you have too much in your base folder, your game will take ages to load. The more you have, the slower it gets. The less RAM your computer has, the slower load times pass. The slower your CPU, the slower load times will be. You also risk your computer randomly shutting down, restarting, or random crashes by having more than the computer can handle. So, basically, if you never use it, don't keep it, 'cuz the more you got the more strain your system takes. Right, safety warnings and summaries out of the way, I think we're done here. Overall, great mod for you "pakrats" (no pun intended). If you play baseJA and like to use a lot of add-ons, this is a sure-fire winner. ClanMod version and OJP Basic / OJP Enhanced versions in the queue, uploadin' em as we speak (type? speak?). No JAE yet, sadly, so there's Kat Angel's next homework assignment. :p Now, if you don't mind, I'm going to go equip my game with every fighter, bomber, assault walker and tank I can get my hands on. World War III ain't gonna fight itself! :o Erm. Well. Nuts. I need a catchphrase. ~ Kouen




100 Stormtroopers | 493.62 KB

too. Everything seems very ... square, for lack of a better term. When you spawn in the small room, you get your choice of three weapons (or all three if you want) and then right through the door, you\'re greeted by a Stormtrooper and his E-11. You can kill him easily enough. Move on to the next room and you\'ll be bombarded by more E-11 shots from about half a dozen Troopers. I killed them easily enough with one det. The most peculiar room, however, has to be the next one where you look down and just see half of the room full of Stormies and the other half with Jans. Press a button and the untextured wall will move away to allow the NPC\'s slaughter each other. The final room has one lone Stormtrooper with his back to you. You can pick him off without a problem. I pressed the lower button, but nothing seemed to happen. The top button, however, will spawn a ton of Stormies for you to kill. It\'s kinda creepy the way they all turn to face you at once. Dets are quite useful at this point. After that, nothing. So this is like, just a quick little map with NPC\'s to kill. I\'m not even sure where to put this map. Therefore, it shall be placed in Miscellaneous. Is it a good map? Not really. Is it fun? Meh. Maybe the first time around. After that, it\'s just boring cause it\'s the same thing over and over. ~AmosMagee




New Force Lightning Pack | 2.61 MB

into supreme forms. I know what you are thinking, and I HATE YOU FOR THINKING LIKE THAT! Yes, you must obviously think: oh what good is this filth mod to a patrician like myself? This man, Tobe, has given you the ability to change it into the following(and this is just MP): Web Snow Electricity of red and blue Fire Of Red or Green A concentrated beam of energy(green or red) multiple energy beams (green/red) Having tested this before, I can highly recommend this to you, the masses, for consumption and UTTER DELIGHT LIKE A LITTLE CHILD SKIPPING TO AN OIL FACTORY! Yes, children like oil, now be silent. The SP ones are for SP only and consist of electricity and a super concentrated beam of power. How can one not go wrong? What\'s better: the beams trace all the way to a wall, where you can trace your marks of power. The only downside? the range of damage from regular force lightning remains the same. However, this would require severe overhaul of coding, and I think Tobe\'s done enough on his part. He has even generously whipped up a custom soundset for each set of lightning. Overall? You want the brilliant effects you see below? THEN OFFER YOUR PATHETIC BANDWIDTH TO TOBE\'S FILE OF EVIL OR ELSE IT SHALL NOT BE GRANTED. FYI: Beware with what effects mods you combine with this, as I\'ve seen drastic damage done to the effects success back when I was a pk3 packrat. - Averus Retruthan




Clan Mod | 17.76 MB

detail =_,= To begin, this is naturally an administration mod, definitely most powerful and most malevolent. [b]Here are some features you can do as a player:[/b] - Jetpack: Pretty basic stuff. Can be rid of as well - Every admin function you could do in JA+, minus telemark (that will most likely mean something to JA+ users..) - Grapple: While you won't be able to swing around and keep hung around like you could in JA+, I will say that this version of Grapple could be comparable to a Spiderman webslinging type of grapple. T'was quite fun to shoot across the map in such grace. - Multiple and pretty nice emotes - Drop your weapons(huzzah =_=) - Engage in four types of duels: Force Duel, Melee Duel (200 HP/fists), training duel(the only duel you can choose to end), and the regular old duel. - Change your chat color with /chatcolor /ignore people and more =_=! [b]Admins will get to do this:[/b] - Teleport - Slay - My favorite, Insult Silence: =_,= instead of being silenced, one gets to insult themselves, in whatever manner the server pre-defines. - Adding weather effects, map objects, and visual effects to the map in real time. and quite a lot more =_= Hopefully that list will have whetted your appetite slightly. If not, the roar clan has an online wiki manual that can be reached in the tools section of the clanmod folder. Overall, this mod is not one to be passed up. It has so much one could do, and there's virtually no competition between this and JA+. I would say that this mod will undoubtedly become a hit, should anyone choose to make the change. The power is nothing short of malevolent, and honestly, if my rambling hasn't convinced you, perhaps the screenshots will. SUBMIT BANDWIDTH IMMEDIATELY! =_= *destroys planets* - Averus Retruthan




Vincent Valentine | 4.92 MB

=_=. last, after many trials and tribulations, the JKA community is endowed with Final Fantasy VII's most famous antihero, Vincent Valentine. This model is nothing short of splend'rous, and to think otherwise MEANS HERESY. Regardless, this model's detail, texturing, and accuracy are superb to a fault. It looks almost exactly like the model used in Dirge of Cerberus, and perhaps even better than that. Included are not just 1, but 4 variants: The teamskins, a black version, and a slightly redder "Chaos" version. Ah yes, and SP Support Bah...uou fools almost had my hopes up when I saw Chaos in the selection XD I thought you secretly made Chaos and included it. CURSE YOU =_= Guess what came along with the good pimply Vincent? Yes, that is correct: Cerberus. For those of you unfamiliar with what I speak of, I refer to his trusty tri-barreled pistol made famous by DoC. The detail and texturing are nothing short of supreme, thus constituting the previous Heretical statement. The factors that initially confused me were the fact it changed the blaster pistol and why there was a saber of it. These actions were justified with custom animations and the idea of "pistol whipping" in mind. Sadly, there are a couple quirks: - Vincent's mouth isn't rigged: This was actually quite a problem in the forum, as there were a lot of complications involving the skin on the mouth. In short, it seems that they cut out mouth rigging. Perhaps it will appear in a second version. - Awkward choice for Cerberus saber attacks: While the idea of pistol whipping was a rather smart idea, the execution was a bit off. I would think that the dual saber attacks would have been more appropriate. Why? Because: 1.) It would look more as if he were pistol whipping in quite a couple attacks. 2.) It would involve use of his claw, which he used more for melee in DoC than the pistol. - The new animations have a few "flaws": For one, they are not compatible with JA+ users, which would be discouraging for those folk. Second, and while this is more of Raven's fault, the other guns will be shot with one hand. This is because Raven was lazy and decided to spam one stance for almost every gun in the game. Lazy fools. I shall lay death at their doorstep. - The NPC had a saber. Sort of stupid, but I suppose the agile disposition makes up for it. Otherwise, I would not pay attention to those flaws too much. Despite the flaws, I figure no mortal can resist the dark and mysterious disposition of Vincent Valentine =_= if they can, well then they have more gall than I. In that case, I would hunt them down and slay them so that I would rule still =_,=. ....QUIT READING MY GARBAGE TEXT AND SURRENDER BANDWIDTH ASAP.

SJC - Mos Kreetle | 114.94 MB

return of a legend after a long period of absence. I saw this map when Sith J started production on it many, many aeons ago, and when Sith J mysteriously vanished due to real life work commitments I feared we would never see this map. But, he hasn’t disappointed us, as with excellent timing the finished map is delivered to our doorstep! And believe me we have a treat for you here today! Before starting off the review though, it is best that I first mention the mod which this map is largely based around. This is the JKA Galaxies Mod, a mod that aims to replicate the MMORPG feeling of Star Wars Galaxies using Jedi Academy. Here is what I think is a good summary of the main aims of the mod and this map from the readme: [quote] This map will eventually form a player world in the upcoming mod JKA Galaxies, the map act as a preview to that mod. I have included instructions throughout the map given by protocol droids that are standing near shuttle ports, and banking terminals and other key areas, the will inform you that you cannot do carry out a particular function at the moment, these actions are a part of the Galaxies Mod so thats something to look forward to in the new year. The map stands as a completely playable FFA map however with plenty of areas to explore and also lends itself well to the RPGEr as there are living quarters and underground bars to name a few.[/quote] The droids mentioned are spread throughout the map and are easy to find, they really do give you instructions too when you press the use button on them, a very nice little touch there on the interactivity side there! Now lets have a good look at this very large map. In true Star Wars Galaxies style, this is laid out just as the towns are in SWG, there is an entrance and exit point, that in SWG would lead to the outside world. However of course you cannot go past these areas in this map as it would be physically impossible to replicate the completely open world that Star Wars Galaxies features. The town itself is within some low walls, which allow you to look over and see some scenery beyond, which helps prevent the map from feeling too enclosed. The buildings, and indeed the whole town has a lot of SWG references, such as the droid sounds from SWG used for the many R2 units wandering around, and also the occasional electrical hum and other such noise. All of these are an excellent touch, which adds greatly to the ambience of the map. Buildings to explore include a Medical Center, a few small shuttle ports, between which a small platform flies, transporting you to various parts of the map. There is also a droid / junk shop, some houses (including an outskirts ‘mud-house’ type area), a garage and a bar, all of which are enterable. And I haven’t even gotten to the best part yet! The best (at least in my opinion) and also the biggest part of the map is the shuttle port area. Now, you all remember Sith J’s Millennium Falcon map don’t you? Well the Falcon (a fully enterable one too!) is back for this map, docked in one of the docking bays of the spaceport. But wait, there is more! One legendary, fully enterable ship wasn’t enough to put in this space port, there is another famous fully enterable ship docked here… [b]The Ebon Hawk![/b] Yes that’s right, Sith J has turned his multitude of talents towards providing us with what I think is the definitive rendition of the Ebon Hawk ever see in a JKA map. There have been several maps which feature the Ebon Hawk, both enterable and non-enterable versions, so what sets this apart? Well for one, the attention to detail is incredible. This is definitely the best replication of the Ebon Hawk that I have ever seen. The shape and textures are spot on, though the ship itself is somewhat oversized I think (as is the Falcon) but that is necessary to make all the inside areas fit in, so it isn’t too much of a problem. All the areas we remember from KotOR are here, the bedroom areas, the storage rooms, the bridge, the central room and more. One particularly special feature that caught my eye in the central room was the holo-projector, which has hovering above it a display of a system of planes and asteroids rotating around the Binary Star System of Tatooine’s two suns. Moving back out into the map in general more features that caught my eye was the huge wrecked ship crashed into the middle of the town (very similar to the Dowager Queen that rests in the middle of Mos Eisley) and also the maps textures. The textures are of note because they seem to use some form of bump mapping, which I can’t figure out. The effect looks great, and fits nicely with the rough, grimy appearance of Tatooine in general. Another textural feature of note is the special ENV maps that certain textures have - the ones where only certain parts of the texture are made shiny, whereas the rest remain matt. I forget what this type of shader is called now, but it is a difficult effect to actually make, so well done there Sith J mate. ;) I could go on for much longer with this review, but I think my fingers might fall off with too much typing. :P To sum it up, the layout of this map is very reminiscent of the Star Wars Galaxies locations without being just a copy. The textures are excellent and have been well used, as is the lighting, especially in the underground passageways of the spaceport. These areas look very cinematic, which their low lighting and slight haze in the air. Sith J Cull is always very impressive when it comes to hunting down and getting rid of bugs and errors, however I did notice a small few that managed to slip through. These though are mostly just small areas where a texture is misaligned or not scaled correctly, and in a map this big you wont notice little things like that unless you are looking for them pretty hard. Other than that, I would say that the terrain doesn’t look quite natural and smooth enough in a few areas, but again, that doesn’t spoil the overall excellent quality and workmanship displayed in this map. Overall then a fantastic map here and a magnificent return by Sith J Cull! As far as legends go, he might not be might not be ‘The Man in the Hat’, but he certainly is back! :D [b]New Textures:[/b] Yes [b]New Sounds:[/b] Yes [b]New Music:[/b] Yes [b]Bot Routes:[/b] Yes [b]Game Types:[/b] FFA ~Nozyspy~




UltimateWeapons | 14.52 MB

Version[/file][/b] ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Well here it is finally! The Ultimate Weapons mod v1.3! I reviewed the trailer for this a few weeks back and was deeply impressed with what I saw. Realistic explosion physics and effects, better weapons sounds and better weapons effects too, I was eagerly awaiting the release of this mod, and now…here it is! And it certainly doesn’t disappoint! What we have here is a very comprehensive collection of both some of the author’s own work, and the best of other modder’s work too, all compiled into one all encompassing mod! There’s simply too much for me to describe here, so I will get right to the best bits! [b]New Sounds[/b] As far as I could see (or should I say heard?) it seems like every weapons sound sets have been replaced with movie accurate sounds. One of the most noticeable is the sounds for the E-11 Blaster rifle. To be honest I wasn’t that fond of the default JKA sounds for the E-11, they seemed a bit too high pitched. Thankfully this mod completely changes the sounds to ones that are much more like those you actually here in the films (like the detention center breakout from A New Hope). I also liked the change of sounds for the Flechette launcher and Bryar pistol too. All in all a vast improvement over the default JKA sounds, and that goes for all the weapons! Also included are new lightsaber sounds, which sound more like the ones from the Original Films and also the original Jedi Knight games, along with new sounds for force powers and melee attacks too. I liked the change of the force power sounds, they now sound much more discreet and realistic compared to the rather loud default JKA ones. [b]New Weapons [/b] Here the mod gets even better. Not only does it have completely new sounds, there are also four new weapons or should I say, replacement weapons included. Three are the Bryar pistol, E-11 Blaster rifle and Thermal Detonator from the JKA Dark Forces 2 mod (which replace their respective default weapons), and the other is the DC-15A more commonly known as the Clone Trooper blaster rifle, from the Movie Battles II mod. The new improved repeater rifle, with new shot effects and sounds looks much better than the original, but if you want a change from that, just put the optional DC-15A .pk3 in your base folder and the repeater is replaced with the clone rifle. The Wookiee Bowcaster has also been given a good polish up, as have some of the other weapons. [b]New Weapon Effects[/b] Along with new sounds and some replacement weapons this mod also has new weapon effects. For example, new muzzle flashes and blaster bolts. The projectiles for the repeater rifle have been changed to look bluish and the secondary fire has been changed as well, which I think looks great. Its pretty similar with the rest of the weapons, the E-11 blaster bolts have been changed, and now look much better, as have the firing effects for other weapons. The lightsaber has also received an upgrade with new blades made by D'halaine to look more like the saber blades seen in Episode 3 One interesting case is the Bowcaster. We all know that in the JK Games thus far (at least Mysteries of the Sith, JK2 and JKA) the Bowcaster bolts have traditionally been green. However, if you look at the original films, the Bowcaster bolts are actually red. This mod changes the green bolts to red, thus making it more realistic to the films. If though, you don’t like the red, there is an extra .pk3 you can put in your Base folder, which will change them back green again. But not only does it change the colour, it also improves the green Bowcaster bolt effects, so it is now much improved. [b]New Particle Effects[/b] This was one area I was super happy with! It seems to be an unusual (mostly male) characteristic that we like watching things explode and blow up. Whilst women on the other hand like nice quiet romantic stories…well give me a few explosions any day! :P Well I am very happy to say that the explosions and particle effects have been [b]massively[/b] improved over the default JKA ones. The explosions now actually look like powerful the explosions that you would expect to get from Thermal Detonators or Rocket Launchers. Along with that are all the little chunks of things and sparks and shrapnel that fly everywhere (very realistically). Along with the explosions is the new blaster hit effects. Instead of just a black blob on the wall (or indeed another player!) when you hit it with a blaster bolt, you now get what looks like a proper hole that’s been blasted out. Along with that you also get little glowy bits in the middle, and even a small tongue of flame (also like we saw in the movies when a Stormie blasts a chunk out of a wall). [b]Extras[/b] On top of all of that, as I have already said, there are some replacement weapons, and a handy .pk3 file for changing the Bowcaster bolt colours around from red to green and back again. Then there is also another couple of optional .pk3 files, which you can choose to use. One is a .pk3 file, which is called; ‘zzz_UltimateWeapons_LQEffects.pk3’. As the name suggests if you find that your computer is running slowly with the full-on-super-high-quality effects, you can put that .pk3 in your base folder and it makes the effects simpler and less taxing on your systems resources, which is great if you have a slower computer. I really think that was a nice thing to add in there, as it makes the mod even more accessible to people. :) Lastly we have another optional .pk3 which disables the blood effects in the mod. Personally I’m not that fond of blood effects, since laser bolts and lightsaber blades would in reality cauterise the wound and should stop it from bleeding…there goes my geek side again! :P The blood effects are on as default in the mod, but if you don’t want them to appear, you can put the ‘zzz_UltimateWeapons_NoBlood.pk3’ in your base folder and this will remove the blood splatter effects. [b]Conclusion[/b] All in all then an absolutely fantastic mod here, and what is more, it works in Single Player too! Though there is the possibility that this mod will conflict with other weapons mod’s and such, but that is to be expected considering how many things this changes. So if you want to know more about that, take a look in the files readme for more information. To be honest, this compilation is as close as I think it is possible to get to a perfect all round weapons mod for Jedi Academy, it truly recreates the movie feel in the game. And personally I think that this really breathes some fresh life into JKA when you play it. Fantastic work here D'halaine! I [i]very[/i] strongly recommend a download here, you wont be disappointed! :D ~Nozyspy~

Force Unleashed SP | 9.59 MB

hilt model by HOUOU. There isn't much differance between basejka and this, however there are some things that are worth mentioning. First of all, author forgot to write in the readme that to be actually able to use "/saber" command you need to enable cheats first. After that, you can type "/saber sniper_bh" to get a backhand lightsaber with Starkiller's stance. The animations changed are stance, push, drain, lightning and grip as it would seem. Also I've noticed that grip was renamed into "Telekinesis" which isn't quite accurate (Because in Force Unleashed it's still called grip). The only bug that I could notice was that when you stand on a ledge, the animations go all crazy and weird so avoid those areas. As a nice finish I'd like to say that if you're a Starkiller fan and need a proper stance and saber mod that will get your JK3 a bit closer to the modern "Force Unleashed" game, you totally need to submit bandwidth for this file :) -Schrödinger




Taspir Power Complex V3 | 51.02 MB

Seriously! The insides of the three towers around the map all look the same, and I could never tell where I was or which floor I was on. Mind you, I did get lost in [i]my own map[/i] once... Errm, perhaps I shouldn't have said that. Ehem, anyway, on with the review! Well, we have a big treat for you here today. Fans of the previous two versions of the Taspir Power Complex map will be drooling to get their hands on the latest version no doubt. Never fear, for your download is near (well just at the bottom of this review actually)! I think people who have never heard of this map, or perhaps didn’t like the previous two versions will be won over by the latest maps incredible features. Since this is such an [i]epic[/i] map, this is going to be quite a lengthy review, even then I will have to cut bits out, since there are such a huge amount of features in this map, I would have to write a book to cover them all! If you have been waiting for this map, my nice long review will be a good thing for you, since it will take you marginally longer to scroll down the page to get to the download button, thanks to its length. Hopefully this will build up the suspense and excitement just a little bit more. :P Anyway, where do I start? This is such a HUGE map that there is a lot to cover here. In fact the main map could really be two maps in one (I shall come to that later). Although I should really call this a map pack, since there are actually a number of maps included in the .pk3 here, including a night time version of the main map, and also a CTF map and a couple of duel maps! Since there is so much here, I will concentrate mostly on the main FFA map of the files title. First of all lets have a look at the: [b]Architecture[/b] The architecture of the original Taspir map was pretty simple, yet at the same time distinctive. The author here has improved the architecture for the original areas of the map; however, the real challenge comes when you start adding new areas to the original one. The thing is, to make the transition between old and new as seamless as possible, you have to build your new areas in the same style of architecture as the old areas. This makes the map seem more of a whole, rather than an obvious mixture between the original parts, and the new additions. Trust me when I say that this is a difficult thing to do! The author has done an excellent job here, merging the original Taspir areas with his new additions. In some areas, I honestly couldn’t tell where the old map ended, and where the new additions began, they were that well blended together. That is a difficult thing to do, so well done there mate! :) [b]Additions[/b] Well, where do I start?! There are so many new areas to explore here, I could spend all day writing about them! One of my favourite areas was the ‘clan bedrooms’ area. This seems to be a feature on quite a lot of clan oriented maps, such as Sith Council v2, however, I think the bedroom area in this map is the best I have ever seen in any clan themed map. It is well laid out, there is lots of space and the furniture is much more realistic than I’ve seen in other maps. Importantly though, the furniture here is also properly sized, so no gigantic desks or chairs, they are the right proportion to the player character! We also have new areas added to the top of the towers in the main part of the map. There are some landing pads with spawnable ships, gun turrets, and even what looks to be an air traffic control tower! There are also many other features up here, however, another one of my favourite areas was down below… Going through a door in the mountain side down at the bottom near the lava takes you into what must be the reason for the maps name; the Power Complex. This is a large area inside a huge cave, with power generators, lots of walkways with girders, pipes, and all manner of industrial looking apparatus filling the area. Also most impressive is how the lava is down below, lighting the cavernous space with its fiery red glow. On a side note, I also want to say how much I was impressed with the new lava texture, it is a vast improvement over the original Base JKA lava texture! The most colossal addition to this map (in fact, it could be a whole map in itself) is the massive space area, filled with asteroids! There is a space station with spawnable ships, masses of asteroids and other features, and my favourite part) a huge asteroid in the middle much like the one seen in Episode 2 during the dogfight between Jango and Obi Wan. It has several holes in it, and a sizeable area inside, so you can test your piloting skills out trying to fly through it! ;) Even more clever, the way to get to this space area is simply to get one of the spawnable ships and fly it up into the sky…you are then teleported straight to the space sector! If you want to go back to the planet’s surface, then all you need to do is fly towards the planet in the skybox in space. A very clever system for moving between the two areas that I haven’t seen done before. Even after all that, there is still a huge amount of new features and areas to explore on this map, you can keep coming back day after day and keep finding new things! [b]Interactivity[/b] Once again, I could write a book with the amount of interactive features there are on this map! As I have already said, there are spawnable ships in various areas of the map for flying around in, as well as many new areas which have interactive features. This map has a total of [b]56[/b] scripts which control and enable certain things to happen around the map. Now that probably won’t mean a lot to most people unless you are a mapper. But let me say that most maps have [i]no[/i] scripts at all! And the ones that do have scripts, generally speaking don’t have that many. In that light that 56 scripts in a single map, is a huge amount and must have taken a lot of work! There is one particular secret, which probably involves a fair few of those scripts, which will make your eyes pop out with the incredible changes it actually makes to the map, however that is a secret, so I shall say no more. :P Perhaps the best interactive feature of this map is the ability to customise it for your own clan. I know on some clan-oriented maps, various different clans that use the map will replace the original clan’s textures (logos and such) in the .pk3, with their own textures and logos. Thus when they play the map, the original clan’s logos and textures have been replaced with their own, thus customising it for their own use. This map is very special however, in that this is the first map I have ever come across that has this ability [i]built into the design of the map[/i] which means the map was meant to have certain textures replaced so clans can customise it for themselves! [b] ***Full instructions on how to do this are on the authors website, you can find the address in the readme below.***[/b] As well as that, there are a huge amount of teleporters hidden throughout the map which take you to various secret places. Including secret observation rooms, rooms with lots o’ buttons that do various things throughout the map (including changing the music), excellent sniping positions, secret areas for duelling in and so on. A nifty feature in the hidden duel rooms is the auto return feature, so if you are defeated in the duel, or die any other way, you are automatically teleported back into the duel room you were in before. To leave the room or disable this feature all you need to do is just walk to the exit sign, and you are teleported back into the main map. [b]Extras[/b] In reality, this isn’t just one map, but actually [b]six[/b] maps! First of all we have the main FFA map, which comes in two flavours, both a day and a night version! The night version gives a whole different feel to the map, and is very well done. Then we have a CTF version of the main map, which has had several areas changed, including the main platform in the middle of the map, which has been made dramatically smaller. It also new moves up and down, and deploys a small ramp to get onto it, all by using the console near it. This was very well made, and could be useful for all kinds of things, especially duels and such. The layout of other areas is also slightly different, but still similar to the main FFA map. The red and blue flags are housed at the top of the towers, which are lit by red and blue lights respectively on the outside. Moving on, we then have another tree Duel maps! Two of them are the same, being the main platform area from the original map, once again coming in night and day versions. A really cool (and somewhat scary) feature of these maps is that the lava down below the platform starts to rise every so often, accompanied by a small earthquake…until the lava engulfs the two lower platforms / areas leaving just the main platform up to! So if you are duelling down below, and the earthquakes start, you know that’s your que to move to the upper platforms, or get engulfed by rising lava! The other duel map, is another area from the new main map, the underground cavern where the power plant is. This makes a fantastic place to duel because of the numerous walkways and the deadly lava down below! ;) [b]Conclusion[/b] All in all this is an absolutely epic map, and I’m really not exaggerating when I say that. It really is [i]that[/i] good! It has endless secrets to explore, new areas to discover, incredible interactivity and on top of all of that, it has been tailored to also suit the needs of clans. As far as interactive clan themed maps go, I really do believe that this map sets the new [b]gold standard[/b] in terms of the huge amount of features it offers, and the overall consistent excellent build quality. And if you are wondering about low FPS, the author also included another .pk3 in the .zip file (Tpcv3_low_fps_fix.pk3) which disables certain features which may slow older computer systems, thus making the map even more accessible to people. This is an absolute [i]must download[/i] as far as I am concerned, I haven’t seen a map with this many things to do, secrets to discover and new areas to explore for longer than I can remember! Come on guys, give this map a download, you know you want to! ;) [b]Main Map:[/b] [b]Bot Support:[/b] Yes [b]New Textures:[/b] Yes [b]New Sounds:[/b] Yes [b]New Music:[/b] Yes [b]New Scripts:[/b] Yes (TONS of them!)

Hexes Ghetto 2 JK3 | 41.5 MB

still has an awesome feel and it was fun exploring the new rooms. Here's my original review: [quote]Generally when I open up a mod or a map and take a look at it in JA, I always manage to find something that the map or mod reminds me of. In this case, that opening scene of the film "Blade Runner" with the noodle bar man and Harrison Ford. Maybe a little bit of Tokyo in here as well, crossed with a bit of Coruscant....ANYWHO, the review! Ive chosen to re-review this from the previous review of the JK2 version, mainly because I have quite a lot to say about this map. I really like some of the features, lots of nice pretty lights, moving screens, gives it that Coruscant/Blade Runner feel which I really do take interest in. Definitely the main city is my favourite part of the map. The snipe wars and throwing people off that top balcony...I could have such a blast, and I'm sure you will to. The main area leads you off to several different places of the map, each for a different purpose I presume. Many areas for holding duels in, and the architecture is top quality in almost every place of the map. The textures give this map a really nice feel as well, the variation is great and the quality is also good. All the rooms are decent sizes, and have a unique look and feel about them. Again perfect for mass FFA and merc wars, but I could also see some very nice RP's happening here as well. That's what I like about the map, it has the potential to be used for other activities such as RP, and is not limited to one type of fun. A suggestion for a V2 though, put a bar outside, then I can recreate that "Blade Runner" scene Roll Eyes (sarcastic). One thing that really put me off though, was the choice of music. Now I'm more of a Metal head/old school rock fan, so techno Star Wars isn't really my thing, but hey, I'm sure others will like it. I don't think there's any difference between the JK2 version and this one, I checked the screenshots of the JK2 version and I'm pretty sure its the same map. Author states there's seven secrets all together, so lots of time for exploring! I like this map, I suggest giving this a download if your a futuristic/Star Wars/Blade Runner fan, you wont be disappointed. -|Sho'Hen|-[/quote] Whats new in this version? well Hexes has added a load more things to check out room wise. There's a maze, a pit lava duel room and other new rooms for exploration. As far as I could tell, all the new places are secrets. I no-clipped the map to find them so I cant point you in the right direction I'm afraid!:D A couple of original rooms now have npc support in them so you can spawn until your heart is content. If you liked the first version, you'll love this one! Give it a download! -|Jorka Sho'Hen|-




Armored Darth Vader | 972.24 KB

just a change of the cape, which isn\'t too bad for that skin, but it could be a bit more. There is bot support woo hoo, now we can fight Vader as much as we want and yell at him. Seeing as I am more of a Jedi kind of guy so I don\'t like many sith skins, but this is quite a good skin. Just the detail was really good. He didn\'t change too much compared to the normal Darth Vader skin, but it still looks really cool. He made the eyes red so spooky ooky! His chest is a giant metal plate hence the name Armored Dark Vader. It has a nice dark feel to it, the face looks strange for some reason. Every time I look at it, it seems to change, either it’s just me or he’s just down right spooky. He looks really good with a red saber as you can see in the screenshots. He also wants to say that he thanks Matthias Büttner because he made the original version for JK2. Therefore in the end of it all the skin looks pretty decent. It has all the necessities for the skin including the new sounds, Bot Support, and Team Colors. He might have been able to do just a little more with team colors like adding some streaks on his helmet of that color, but at least he has team colors. I like the eyes because they are more profound than the rest of his face so it gives it a small amount of detail. It seems like DaX likes to put a medium amount of detail into his skins, which is kind of nice so it doesn’t lower fps or mess around with distractions. Good job The-DaX I like this version of Vader so I think this one will stay in my archives :). -XgamerX New Sounds: Yes Team Colors: Yes Bot Support: Yes




Soldier Customization | 43.65 MB

Scout Trooper skins to fit for SP Use, and then to add some creative pepper =_= the author made a number of new skins to go in with them. Suffice to say, it looks like the entire gang is here, and I must say that this pack is definitely effective. Really, I could ramble on and on about this, but I daresay a good look at the screenshots will probably illustrate more than that, so I will simply poke the screenshots and run off in a nonchalant fashion _>[/quote]Looks like in this second version we have some new customization options, so if you liked it before make sure to pick up this update! Team support has not been included because, as the author pointed out, you can simply download the original releases of these skins and models which will not interfere with the customization.

Sith-J\'s Mygeeto FFA/CTF | 11.01 MB

;) Anyway enough of that! :P Here we have a brilliant new map from Sith J Cull, this is certainly one I’ve been waiting for, and I know quite a lot of other people have been waiting eagerly for it too. Now where to start? Lets start with the size first. Now this map isn’t as big as some of Sith J’s previous work, but as he explains in the readme: [quote] I wanted to do so much more with this map, but time constraints this year have made working on anything JKA related very hard, so I made this little CTF/FFA map based on mygeeto blah thats it! hope you like it.[/quote] Not to worry though, as this map is still a good size for a medium FFA and a nice size for a good CTF match too, which is mainly what this map was designed for anyway. I don’t think Sith J has made many CTF maps, there are only 2 that I know of and this is one of them. I used to play CTF [b]alot[/b] back when I played JK2, so I always enjoy testing out new CTF maps to see what the gameplay and map flow is like. I couldn’t really properly test out gameplay on this map, because…well bots aren’t exactly as good as humans! The bot routing was still very good though! What about map flow though? I think it’s very good, this map could certainly make for some interesting CTF matches. There are basically two ways to get to the flag bases. Straight through the middle from one side to the other, or over a little bridge that connects from the middle of the map over to the side of the flag base, so you can try and sneak in. To make things even more interesting, the bridge is protected by what can only be laser-bolt proof glass. ;) So you cant just shoot at people from the side as they’re running along it! The look of this map is great, more Base JKA textures have been used here than normal, but that’s certainly not a bad thing! The texturing of the map is great. My favourite bits were the towers over the flag bases, the architecture on them looks really cool! The hills and BIG chunks of rock jutting up (they look like something from the planet Krypton in Superman) look great, they really add a sense of depth to the map. The dust hanging in the air looks cool as well, though it would have been a bit better if it fell like snow, just much, much slower. But I suppose you would have to edit the .efx file for that or something, and it could take quite a while to get just the effect you want (I know that from personal experience ;) ). All in all a very nice map here, I hope to see this played on some CTF servers out there! ;) Just before I wrap up my final review here at JK3Files, Sith J wanted me to mention that he wasn’t able to spend as much time as he would have liked on this map. Because of real life things and the fact that he wanted to work more on his new Tatooine map, he didn’t get around to finishing this map off to as high a standard as he would have liked. He also says that he will be releasing some other maps this year that he has been working on for a while, including: The Tatooine style Mos Kreetle. Complete with underground tram system, a bar, and a space port with the Falcon (inside and out) docked, and Queen Amidala’s Starship. After that its Kamino II. Then his Stargate map. He also says that the JKA-G mod (which will bring Starwars Galaxies style gameplay to JKA) is in the hands of a new coder so although at the moment progress is at a stand still, things will pick up this year. Well there we go, this is one map that I certainly liked, and I’m sure lots of other people will like it too! If you like the look of it, why not give it a download? ;) Bot Support: Yes New Textures: Yes New Sounds: Yes New Music: Yes Game Types: FFA, TFFA, CTF ~Nozyspy~

Episode III Anakin | 2.26 MB

the reskins for it, which portray Anakin as a Sith from the upcoming Episode III. Whilst there are some deemable qualities shown, overall its not really up to scratch. It's probably hard wprking of stills for a film that hasn't come out yet, and especially so for a relatively new skinner, but it still falls in a few areas, mainly the head. So, what's wrong with the head? The hair is the first thing that sticks out like a sore thumb. Whilst I appreciate its probably quite a difficult part to look right, this hair is just plain wrong, and needs to be sorted out. Its misaligned and doesn't meet the skin of the head properly in some places. The face is also off by quite a long shot, as it is in most celebrity skins. However the cloak and clothing seems pretty good to me, despite a few transparency issues with the cloak neckline. There's overall, about 5 different skins, and an NPC. However it lacks team skins andf bot support. Overall I'm quite divided about this reskin. Whilst the face is so off that it couldn't be recognised as Anakin without the robes and stuff, other areas seem perfectly fine, although some higher quality textures would have been nice. There's also a hilt included, but I'm not really up on the realism of that, so you'll have to decide for yourself whether it works or not. [/quote] The improvements are visibly stated in the author's readme, so you can easily tell the difference, but I'm still unhappy with the face. It looks less like a beetroot than before, and now has a likeness to Anakin fro Episode III, however it still seems to be lacking something in this area. Tha hair is a little flat, but thats expected without modelling it all seperately - the rest of the skin seems perfectly decent, and bears very strong resemblance to Anakin. (Well, from the previews anyway) The author has also added team support for this version. However bot support still remains forgotten. Overall it's a decent skin, but because its supposed to be anakin, it fails a little in that respect because of the face. New Sounds: Yes Team Support: Yes Bot Support: No ~Szico VII~




Wasabee\'s Skinning Tools | 559.7 KB

tutorial frankly confused me to the point where I stopped reading it. It has a lot of run-on sentences that made it very difficult for me to keep my place. The author also went on and on for each step, when most newbie skinners probably just want simple directions. But just for the Pakscape/ModView combo it\'s worth a download for new skinners. I\'d probably suggest finding a better skinning tutorial, though. ~Inyri




Mos Eisley Meanstreets | 4.87 MB

of Mos Eisley and serves as an academy for mercenaries working for the Hutts. That said, what the hell is the Millennium Falcon doing there? Oh, and it's not just any Falcon, Several Sided Sid built that himself. Yup. You can even explore inside. :) The whole town definitely has that Tattooine feel to it. There's a bar in one area, what seems to be a warehouse in another area, and alleyways throughout. There's a lot to see in this map. Unfortunately there's no bot support, nor any new textures. But he didn't really need to create any new textures for a map like this. My FPS was just fine and the map was fun even just to explore. I could see people playing all kinds of FFA on this map and even RPing (if that's something you do). The music was quite interesting. A friend of the author's took some well-known Star Wars themes and kinda did a remix just for this map. It's an interesting track. I do recommend you download this map and check it out. :) Bot Support: No New Textures: No New Music: Yes Game Types: FFA, TFFA, Duel ~AmosMagee




The New Revan Dark Weapons | 13.27 MB

magnificent weapon. Of course I'm not saying the skins on these weapons are bad, I'm just saying they're simple, and that works. The beauty of these places - and hilts - comes from their shaders. With a simply shaded skin, a custom chrome shader goes a long way. That's right. It's not the ordinary Raven chrome shader. Well, actually the shader [i]is[/i] the same, but the environment maps are custom-made to fit the style of the blades better. This produces an excellent chrome effect on the blades and hilts. This pack actually contains something I, until this very moment, thought was not possible to do in JA - a genuine glow. I'm definitely keeping this in my base folder, more to learn as a modeller than to use. Folks, this pack is very well done, both visually and technically. My hat's off to you, Revan. You are a god among mortals. Oh, in case you guys don't feel like reading the read-me (shame on you!) there are twenty-one weapons in this pack, including 4 lightsabers, 11 swords, 4 staves, 1 hammer (geez is it ever big), and one gun (a DEMP replacement). Read the read-me for more information on special weapons included in this pack. ~Inyri




Advent Children "AC" Sephiroth | 4.14 MB

I've seen this file being worked on, the creators talking about it for some time in my travels on various forums, and these guys are very good at what they do. (look at the readme to see who all contributed) This has to be one of the best ones I've ever seen. The detail involved is spectacular. I'm not even going to go into shader use or anything else because there really is no point. You guys did an outstanding job here. I do not even play the game this character is from, and I will be adding this to my base folder. The only thing else I will say is to those who spent such a long time on this, congrats and one heck of a nice model. from the read me: What has changed since The Midgar v2 version? 1) Bot Support 2) Team Skins. 3) Fixed textures 4) No confliction with Midgar pk3 or any old AC weapon mods. 5) Both the bot and the npc will use the masamune weapon. 6) If you DO have either of the above two mods, you may find you have 2 masamune weapons in your list, don't worry, they're both the same :) Team Colors: Yes Bot Support: Yes (Although taking on the NPC is much more challenging!)

Episode 3 Anakin | 5.64 MB

little bit better than the average face I've seen on most Anakin models. The rest of the texturing, however, is average. Looking at it I can't really see anything that makes it stand out from most of the other Anakin models out there. The hair is just as weird as the rest, the face is just as blurry (unfortunately that's what you get when you photosource) and the clothes are just the same color. By this point in the game we're just getting minor tweaks of the dozens of Anakin skins out there already. This one's definitely not bad, but unfortunately most of them look to be just about the same to me. Maybe I've just seen too many of them... However I suppose that's saying something good. I've seen bad Anakin skins [i]and[/i] models, and this isn't one of them. Just one thing about the original model. It deforms fairly well all around... except [i]one vertex[/i]. If you look at the right shoulder area in ModView during the animations you'll see it. Unnoticible for the most part, though.

Imperial Raid 2: The Bank Job | 39.69 MB

better. Even the screenshots don\'t do this map justice. My FPS was fine in the areas I did explore, but I didn\'t get through the whole map ... so there may be issues elsewhere. For those of you craving a new Siege map, well, here ya go. Orb never disppoints. All of the various sounds in the map are great additions and some are quite amusing (there\'s elevator music LOL). And the music choice ... the theme from Miami Vice ... perfect. LOL So if you play as an Imperial, you\'re job is, as suggested by the title of the map, to break in at the bank, get into the vault and steal the briefcase from the last Siege map by Orb and escape! Good luck. :D Bot Support: Meh New Textures: Yes New Music: Yes Game Types: FFA, Siege ~AmosMagee




JK3 Cheats Special Version | 5.91 KB

there\'s now a little document here that will teach you how to do all sorts of things. Like, how to start a map up with cheats on, how to \"noclip\" so you can easily find secrets in maps, how to get all weapons, full health, etc. This little guide also tells you how to spawn NPC characters and vehicles. And if you still don\'t have colour in your name, now you can easily learn how to make your name red, green, yellow, blue, cyan, pink/purple/magenta (whatever the heck that color is) or white. Cobra says that there will be an update to this little help document, so when he learns more, so will you! Good job on this, Cobra. It\'s easy to understand and I\'m sure many people will get a lot of use out of this. :) ~AmosMagee




Dark Robes Skin | 1.87 MB

thrown in a beard and moustache for good measure. And that\'s it! As for detail, to say the main thing is it has been darkened, it has been done good, not superbly, contrast is a bit off but good nevertheless. The only truly different thing is the beard and moustache which do look like a beard and moustache at least! -WadeV1589-




Episode III Clones | 5.85 MB

the more I saw the subtle differences that made them good, such as the scortch marks on the armor and the smudges. Considering these are all just reskins of the Stormtrooper model, they\'re really not too bad. There\'s a normal white version (looks much like the normal stormtrooper, but with a modified helmet and some \'grunge\'), a green \"elite\" version, an orange version, and blue and red versions. Now I don\'t consider myself an expert on Episode 3, so I\'m not sure how accurate all these markings are compared to the real thing, but I do like how they look, so if you\'re a detail freak you may not like these as much if they\'re not 100% accurate, which (considering they are reskins) I\'m sure they\'re not. However as some variety to the normal stormtrooper, I think they\'re worth a download. Bot Support: Yes Team Support: Yes New Sounds: No NPC Support: Yes ~Inyri




Samurai Village | 21.18 MB

feel of a feudal Japanese outpost. It includes a throne room in the center, and a zen-style sand garden. Encircleing the central area are a series of connecting single-room dwellings. Each has thier own particular features, including a forge, a meal room, and a room for meditation. My favorite feature of this map however are the two guard towers posted outside the enteryway. The attention to detail and precision here is remarkable. Whats more, the extensive work put into the roof of each building has not excaped my attention. The slopes are even and well spaced on each building. Included in the zip are a couple of Japanese-style swords, and a longbow that replaces the wookie bowcaster. When you shoot it, the arrows actually stick into things! :D My only complaint with this map is the corners around the small pond. The author did not go back to re-align the textures here and, though not noticable on casual inspection, was extremely distracting when I noticed it. Good job Worr Sonn. I would love to see more extensive maps following along this theme.

Sith Council Final | 22.35 MB

maps pretty closely over the years, being rather impressed with their strong RP value and general amusement. This version, being the final version, is basically a devil's deal in my book. The main term I'd like to emphasize in this review is [i]trade-off.[/i] Whilst there are good aesthetic changes and pretty decent content revamps, these same things could also be reversed into negatives, which is possible, although uncommon, especially in maps. To preface, I'll be tackling this review basically in a room-to-room fashion somewhat, in an effort to help emphasize the changes in the content. [i]Main Lobby/Darth Bar[/i] - The Main room has gotten a rather large overhaul in regards to texture, but in essence, it remains similar to the JedicouncilGC map as it was intended. The doors have been moved and removed as necessary in this revamp. The textures, I must say, aren't a great change. It must attempt a look at being wood, but in the end, they just look like the walls are covered in a very fine fur =_o. These textures plague a large majority of the map, and hurt its visual appeal. The wooden pillars now no longer fit in with the map, alienating themselves from the color scheme. Lighting seems to be much more noticeably unsourced than the last version. I think the only real good changes in my opinion would be the stairs and the use of daises to prelude the exit hall doorway. Darth Bar looks completely...dare I say repulsive? Nay, but it's definitely taken an aesthetic hit. The red furry looking texture has made the bar seem like some sort of cafe for failing abstract artists who think they're unique. The signs have been removed, and the actual bar itself seems realistically unservicable. [i]The "Side Rooms"[/i] - Now we shall branch out into the rooms on either side of the main hall. The "lava pit" has been revamped into an indoor cavernous area of sorts. A bland box of stone, with the worst lava texture I've seen out there. This lava texture is used in pretty much every lava area now, and looks so very ugly without a glow shader or what have you. Moving next door, we approach the armory. Like the main hall, it's received that horrible furry red texture. The appeasing trade off was the use of cubbies to store the weapon spawns. Otherwise, unappeasing. On the other balcony lies the Dojo from V2. No changes there(screenshot ) Moving down to the first floor, underneath the lava pit room, we find the acid pit room. Honestly, the new acid texture makes it look like...snot. It also doesn't look very liquid-esque when you look at the texture. Basically the same as the lava pit room now. Across the room, next to the bar, is the library. It was extracted from V2, and looks the same.(screenshot ) Next door is the old interrogation room. It didn't get a very decent revamp. Biggest change I noticed was the torture room's downsize. I was going to flesh this out a little more, but I didn't feel like it =_= [i]The Halls[/i]- The halls are probably the most impressive changes I noticed. The annex as you enter from the main lobby I liked with its sourced red hue. From there you can reach a couple halls. The upper halls are the most interesting, having a triangular architecture, and I find it quite tasteful. The lower basement halls, however, seemed overly broad, and unappealing. It had promise, albeit it was wasted. The biggest disappointment was that the "RP hall" was destroyed, ousting the classroom and cafeteria. [i]Med bay[/i]- Suffice to say, it looked like it was more based roughly on the Jedi's Home JL II map's med bay, although there it was a rough look. Otherwise, it retains the usual bacta tank functions, including the out of order one. [i]Cage Arena[/i]- Probably the best room to overhaul, although it wasn't 100% improved. The room did, however, get completely rebuilt. The arena retains its general shape, but there's no long as much wasted space. The stadium seating is now positioned in the corners of the rooms. The council observation area chairs look very baudy now, with a bright spectrum of colors. Also, the elevator looks very tacky, having a box texture that doesn't blend in with the scheme. [i]Bedrooms[/i] - All the bedrooms have been effectively ravaged, no longer retaining the simple appeal of the others. The size of the rooms have become monstrous, and the number of furnishings don't really compensate. A lot of the rooms contain camera portals of certain areas. Honestly, it feels like more was taken away than added. [i]Basement Areas[/i] - I mentioned the problem with the basement halls. I'll simply attack the rooms. The dungeon was my favorite revamp, having received a nice stone dungeon rehaul. There is now a control center with which to seal off the dungeon cells with a forcefield. There is also a very blatant secret exit route that leads out into the main halls. The council room looks slightly more like a council room in terms of chairs, but otherwise, the room now looks like some sort of angsty artist's creation, with the furry red texture and the odd shaped windows. The pillar room no longer has the battle platform, so now it's just for jumping around and... [i]Outside/Court Room[/i] - Now then =_= the outside has received both good and bad revamps. An aesthetically good revamp definitely was the footbridges and the path leading the the courtroom. The stone door to it could have at least gotten a better texture. The secret door factor was basically ruined with the path. Whilst the waterfall route was a lot better, the super smooth hill just didn't feel very realistic, and the loss of the chasm of death sort of ruined the sithese feel. Ah well.. The courthouse was a much better overhaul, it looks a lot more size appropriate and less oversized. The textures are thankfully quite pleasant, the pit is a lot more ominous. [i]Secrets[/i] - Some secrets are more obvious now, and some aren't. Sadly, some of the secret control areas don't have textures. Not a very good sign. Overall, this map was on a very different, and arguably lower, level than with its predecessor. Granted, this could be expected by conservative fans, but even from an objective point of view, viewing it as a stand alone, it doesn't quite earn the cigar. Granted, it's still [b]Good,[/b] but it could have been better. A shame this is the final version of the map, as it doesn't seem to leave behind the best legacy. My words mean nothing to many. SUBMIT BANDWIDTH, VIEW, AND JUDGE FOR YOURSELF. For some, it could still be a grand improvement. For myself, on the other hand, it leaves more to be desired.

Armored Jedi Golden Armor Edition | 4.79 MB

skin. There\'s a Jedi Trainer, a Luke, a Kyle and a Reborn. Okay, now, brace yourself for this guys ... the Reborn is my favorite. *gasp* I know! Shocked me too! But y\'know, the Reborn doesn\'t look like he\'s wearing pajamas like most do. The hood makes sense when it\'s made of chainmail like that. And ... I dunno ... for some reason, it just works for me. Each skin has the blue dragon symbol on the arm. It\'s a nice touch. Also there are new taunts and sounds for each of them. I had to keep in mind that this is a beta version. There will be an update to this skin pack. So I\'m not going to be too hard on BlackWolf for not including team support. I\'m impressed with how the skins look and that he added new sounds for each one thus far. I can\'t imagine anything I\'d do to improve these skins. Good work. :) Bot Support: No Team Colors: No New Sounds: Yes ~AmosMagee




Revan\'s Castle | 3.69 MB

then. It\'s unfortunate when someone makes a new map and they either don\'t have beta testers to spot simple mistakes or they forget to add a texture, or rename it or something and a texture goes missing. I\'ll bet there\'s a good little 40\'s detective type story thing in there somewhere. \"The Case of the Missing Texture.\" Aaaaaaaanyway ... I spawn into this map and standing right in front of me, blocking my way over the bridge to the castle is a freakin\' Rancor. And he looks hungry. Soooo ... I noclip into the castle. LOL There I find a ... um ... what are they called Weequays? Well, there\'s a guy up at the top with a gun, and then down below, I\'m greeted by a couple of guys with sabers. Really there doesn\'t seem to be much more to this map than that. You fight some stuff, you find your way to the end of the map. Maybe I missed something, I don\'t know. For a single player map, this leaves a lot to be desired. And I wouldn\'t dare suggest you play it as an FFA map on a server. I\'m guessing there\'s only one spawn point.

Naruto Skinpack | 1.12 MB

many people. But googling for the characters I was able to find that the skins show similarities to the anime counterparts. As you can probably guess it uses the cloud model, looking at the pictures I\'ve found I guess it makes sense for the hair. But are there no other models out there with shorter hair? Well the skins look incredibly flat, no real texturing to the body or the face for that matter. I do like the Kakashi skin more though.. It looks as though more work has been put into it. I\'m not too keen on the Naruto skin because well.. That orange jumpsuit looks like it\'s attached to him. A little texture on the clothing could go a long way to making this skin look better. I\'m not too fond of the face either, although you can see the similarities between it and the anime character. The model picked just makes the face look long yet comical. Points given for it being a first skin and for some attempt to resemble the character. Now the Kakashi skin, I like this more than the Naruto one but it isn\'t all that much better. For this skin I think the hair is really the let down to it. Again it looks flat and lifeless, that could be solved with a bit more complex texturing perhaps? The clothes also look a bit lifeless but at least you can somewhat believe that they are clothes instead of painted skin, perhaps because it\'s not just one colour? I\'m not sure but I do know I think it\'s not too bad a skin. Now both skins lack sound, team and bot support, although sound and team support are hopefully going to be added in future versions of the pack. Kudos for the first skinning efforts and I hope you try and add a little extra detail into the skin. Skin Stats: New Sounds: No Team Support: No Bot Support: No -Mithran-




Jedi Human Male Expansion Pack | 10.5 MB

be random. Now, I’m not going to bother going over each and every skin, because that’s just tedious. There are multiple variants to choose from, some look like the author just took the textures from one character in Jedi Academy and just made the textures match the skin map of the jedi_hm model. The head variants mainly differ in hair color, in that some have facial hair, and a few other things. The torso variants have some robe-like variants., some regular shirt variants, and some other variants. And the pants variants were basically made to match the torso, but you can always mix and match to get whatever you want. I found the skinning in most cases to be simple, but when you look at the skins in-game you really won’t care. There were some texture seams in some cases, but that can be combated with moving the texture around a bit and just fiddling with it. Basic suggestions include just practicing skinning some more, and just play with it. But one thing I was disappointed at was the fact you only get one color choice with the new variants. You can’t use the RGB shader thingy with the new skins. :( If you really want to know everything in this pack, then I suggest you download it and check it out.

Clone Trooper Rifle and Some Extra Sounds | 527.77 KB

while to notice that much of a change, although as I always say I\'m not the biggest SW fan so I can\'t judge sound accuracy when it comes to things like guns. The new sniper HUD is definately different, has a slight bug with the power indicator (it\'s not lined up correctly) but it\'s not that bad. Of course there is a bug and this is the second weapon mod in a row that has had a simlar bug! Look at the screenshot below, the shader isn\'t working for the image. I tested this one on my GTK install of JA (I use 2 installs on my PC) and this happened so I know it wasn\'t for the same reason as the other. As I said, a mini-mod but for some it will be worth it, you have to download to find out though! -WadeV1589-

Sssid - Jedi Temple on Coruscant v1 | 10.27 MB

would have to be MASSIVE and that could cause problems making and compiling the map. But Several Sided Sid has succeeded in creating just a map! And the way he has got around potential problems is ingenious! ;) Many of you will probably remember that in Episode 3 where Anakin storms into the Jedi Temple with his army of clones that it is night-time. Well that’s the way that Sssid has cleverly got around the potential difficulties with this map…its night-time! Since it’s night-time most of the map is very dark (except for the entrance area that you play in). Because of this the author has been able to get away with simply not constructing half of the map. If it had been daytime you would have had to make the entire exterior for it to look realistic. But since its night-time in this map, Sssid has only recreated the entrance area in detail, and some parts around it. After that it just fades into darkness, with a few lights on the wall to give the idea that the front of the temple actually carries on into the distance. That’s the thing that I really love about this map, if feels like the entire exterior of the Jedi Temple is there, but really it’s only the main entrance area! A very ingenious solution to some very difficult problems with mapping such a building! The actual entrance area isn’t an absolutely EXACT replica of the one from the films. There are four rows of massive pillar type things at the front (which in this map look fantastic!). In the film, these had giant carvings on them (which look like legendary ancient Jedi or something). In this map however there have been added instead pictures of four famous Jedi from the films; Yoda, Anakin, Mace Windu and Obi Wan. It has been made to look like the characters have been carved out of the stone pillars, which I think looks really cool. :) This map is REALLY big, so there’s plenty of area for dueling or FFA’ing which is good! There are a few things that bugged me a bit here though. One small one would be the sky. Although the ‘fading into darkness’ thing is a really clever way to avoid potential problems with this map, it does look kinda weird that the sky doesn’t have any stars. :S But I suppose that would give away where the edges of the map were. The main thing though was the texturing of the Temple exterior above the four rows of massive pillars. Most of the exterior is textured in a kind of light coloured smooth stone texture, which looks really good. But above the pillars there’s a big red coloured stripe and some heavily patterned stone tile textures, which look out of place with the rest of the texturing. :/ But besides that another superb map here from Sssid! Don’t forget to see if you can find the famous can of Coca Cola that Sssid has dropped somewhere in this map! He must go through a lot of cans! :P Another thing to note is that this map is part of a much bigger project by a team of mappers to create the Jedi Temple inside and out. I shall definitely look forward to seeing more work from that project! :) Bot Support: Yes New Textures: Yes New Sounds: No New Music: Yes Game Types: FFA, TFFA ~Nozyspy~

Maybe more of that story would have been explored in KotOR 3, but that was scrapped shortly after pre production began. Hopefully now we will have some answers from the masterful story tellers at Bioware! Anyways, until then we have a Darth Revan model to sate your appetite! Made by Almighty_gir, this is an excellent piece of work. The modelling details on the belt with that large metal ring especially look good. Incidentally this is also the area that changes colour for the team skins. To be honest I probably would have simply recoloured all the red sections of the default skin for the team skins, but this way is nicely subtle. Though the blue belt ring does kinda clash with the red parts of the robes on the blue team skin. The one thing that I definitely think needs some improvement though is the cloak, since it looks very flat texture wise. Some more creases or folds in the fabric would improve it I think. Other than that a very good skin and model here, though some custom sounds would be nice. Yes I know, apart from the odd sentence the player says in KotOR like “ugh, I’ve been poisoned” Revan doesn’t have any voice overs, but I’m sure you could find some menacing sounding taunts somewhere that would pass for Darth Revan. ;) All in all though an excellent model and skin, I hope you decide to do more KotOR characters in future!

Corel's 'SW KOTOR' Skin Pack | 6.06 MB

there was a model pack category it would've gone in there, which should have told you by now that there are 3 models in this goody-bag file. So why is this so good? Well, firstly the models are from KOTOR, and i think (but not positive) that they were part of the game and have been used to port across to JKA. The same may be true of the skins but either way it's still a good job to the author for bringing them to JKA. My personal favourite is Darth Bandon, who looks very realistic, and i especially admire the facial work there. The clothes and everything are very professional. Take a look at the screenshots for a greater insight into them. The other 2 models/skins here are a Chewbacca lookalike and a 'Dark Jedi.' Not the most innovative names in existance, but this can be forgiven for the quality of this pack. The chewbacca isnt disimmilar from the default JKA version, and you may not find much of interest in that model, but the other two are definitely worth a look. My only criticism of the Dark Jedi is (aside from the name) the rather bland trousers and colour scheme. It's very detailed but a little plain. The final thing I looked at was the extras. All 3 models come with team skins red and blue, bot support, NPC support and new sounds. Personally I think thats quite an effort on its own, however, the sounds aren't all that brilliant. There are no chewbacca sounds (they come with the game) and the dark jedi ones sound too similar to the Reborn noises. Still, the Darth Bandon sounds are very good. Maybe I should be thanking the makers of KOTOR, but to be honest I dont really mind how they came to JKA, all that matters is that they did :) New Sounds: Yes Team Support: Yes Bot Support: Yes ~Szico VII~




Master Chief | 612.58 KB

there will be one made. Cause, really, Master Chief should be bigger than this. There's bot support and team skins. The team skins are simply red and blue. No new sounds though. *sigh* Oh well.

Bespin Sea | 767.89 KB

Flying vehicles, to be exact. The sea between the two bases is vast. So huge that at one point both bases cannot be seen and it would seem as if you’re alone in the middle of nowhere. I had a lot of fun playing with this map. It’s huge sea is perfect for having dogfights, especially since the ceiling is so high. It is nearly impossible to accidentally run into the ceiling or ground or wall once you achieve a decent height. Ties versus X-Wings, Lambda Shuttles versus Tie-Bombers, and when new models are made even more fights can be done. The potential is very high for this map. The biggest problem with this file, though, is the vehicles do not spawn themselves. In order to activate the ships, cheats must be enabled. I can see that fact keeping this file from many servers. But I don’t see it being a problem playing on this map between friends who can be trusted. One item I found really neat about this map is CTF support. Grabbing the flag, jumping into a plane, then flying across the ocean while avoiding oncoming blasts from enemy ships is really exciting. Another fun tidbit of the map is the destructability of the bases. Launch a few attacks at them and in a flash stuff will be missing. This map is pretty cool to pop up every once in a while for a game or to practice your flying in. Other than that, though, I don’t see it being huge on servers because of the whole cheating thing. But give it a shot, it’s pretty fun. - Daku New Textures: Yes Bot Support: Yes (But it’s not very useful here) New Music: No Game Types: FFA, TFFA, CTF




Dark Side SP | 3.9 MB

have been switched around, such as Alora being Kyle, Luke being Tavion, etc. (To see a full list of character switches, read the readme). Also, some sounds have been changed so that the right characters have the right voices in battle. I happened to notice, however, that while viewing the cutscenes, the voices are the same, which does not quite fit the mod, as Alora spoke with Kyle's voice. :p Other than that, I had fun slaughtering the jedi with this mod. Give it a download if you want a little change to your SP. Heheh... Thank you! *Cough* No more RE4 for me...




Academy Castle V1.0 | 8.16 MB

FFA map - it\'s a clan map! And I have to say that when I took my first look, I was quite impressed. The building itself is really pretty! I love the outside of this building. But then I explored and found nothing but mostly large empty rooms, some z-fighting and boring textures. :/ Take a look at the screenshots and you\'ll see what I mean. My FPS wasn\'t bad at all, though it dropped a bit outside. Some doors can\'t be opened without using force push, so this isn\'t a map for those who run NF servers. And I do like it when mappers add those little things, but I just expected something more interesting in this map. Also, I\'d like to add that some rooms were waaayyy too dark. The lighting in this map is off in several places. Keep at it though, Jones. You made a beautiful building, but the map still needs work.

Ahsoka Tano | 14.29 MB

have here today is Ahsoka Tano, otherwise known to the Jedi Council as 'Snips', the Anakin with a better personality. What I see here is good. Textures are flawless on some aspects, but a bit bland. That is to say, it's accurate, but it just seems strange in the middle of battle. The only real problem I have with this model is not its textures or it's weighting. The bot support is good, and so is the alternative skins. My problem is that Ahsoka seems to have put on quite a bit of weight. I'm not entirely sure on that, so please remedy this situation with a sledgehammer to my jawbone. Regardless of this situation, however, the model is good. I would say for you to submit your bandwidth immediately. And I am. Do it to it.

Force Council Headquaters | 9.26 MB

FPS but due to some nice VIS areaportalling my FPS was always above 40. (No worries then) It's a big map, and takes a fair time to load - nothing like Kamino but longer than your average map. There's plenty on areas to look around, and some clan-based training areas like moving jump pads hovering over a foggy abyss :) Theres also some custom vehicles called "Mini-TIES's" which are basically really small versions of the original vehicles and are still pilotable. Its a downside you can't kill other people with them though, unless they're in a vehicle as well. You can fly around most of the base in there if you wanted, its good fun :D The ambient sounds here are great too, machinery, whistling winds down large holes, you name it - it's probably there. The music choice surprised me a bit, as it's so overused in my opinion and not really what I would have chosen.:( Moving on, there were a few things I was curious about. Firstly, there was a pitch black room with nothing that I could see in it. In the readme and pk3 there's vague references to some kind of camera room, which I suspect might mean there's more to this room that meets the eye, but I couldn't be bothered finding it ;) There were a few patch bugs in the room with the rebel symbol on the floor - If you look closely at the curve around it, it doesn't meet the patch on it, but to be honest you won't notice it unless you're looking for it. Other problems could include vehicle errors - as many of you know JKA has issues with a max custom vehicles limit, so if you get those errors you may need to remove other custom maps with custom vehicles included. However, this map was great fun to play and looks great. There's bot support as well, so you can play on your own! The final major thing that needs mentioning is the skyport area. You can teleport here and to other areas through floor teleporters around the map and end up at a hovering tower in a large bespin sky. There are 4 vehicles that respawn here for some ship fighting if that's your bag, and some guidance towers so you don't get lost ;) New Textures: Yes New Sounds: Yes Bot Support: Yes ~Szico VII~




Ancient Outpost | 29.97 MB

be able to find each other! This map is huge, perfect for large free for all, and it's just beautiful. Mixed with indoor and outdoor areas, both the various corridors and the mile-high rock faces are wonderfully done. The outdoor areas are bright, but not brighter than you would expect given the overcast sky. The meshed walkways connect various buildings, leaving many places to potentially fall to a gruesome death in the lava below, and the rocky skybox perfects the atmosphere. To add to the somewhat industrial feel, large pipes stretch from one building to another, so [i]if[/i] you fall you might be lucky enough to land on one of them. And boy do those pipes look stunning. I've never appreciated plumbing quite so much before. The inside is a mix between an industrial atmosphere and a more medieval one. The walls are mainly stone, lined with crystal-like lights, but some more advanced technology makes an appearance, such as control panels, lighted bridges, and some very neat looking mechanical doors. The lighting hops back and forth between white lights and blue lights, occasionally accompanied by a red glow from some lava. The really neat part about this map is how varied the architecture is from one area -- or even one corridor -- to the next. You'll rarely feel like you've been in the same place twice, but somehow the map still holds a sense of unity of style. Both the lighting and architecture vary enough to keep the map continuously interesting, and there is no lack of details, ranging from arched bridges to warning signs. A good word for this map would be [b]complete[/b]. It is very much complete, with very little lacking or that could be significantly improved upon. Even botrouting has been included, which is a must-have for a map as large as this (I can imagine some great bot matches to be played here!). Definitely a must-have.

Star Wars Gangsta Rap | 36.03 MB

father, and theres this little dance interlude where Vader and some stormtroopers start a dance about being a 'fartha.' Hilarious :) Oh yeah, and then one of them kicks vader in the face lol! And also when Obi-wan is telling Luke to run off to Dagobah like a wussy - *snigger* There were loads of amusing scenes in this video, and although I'm not a huge fan of the rap itself, it has been done in a style I found very amusing :) The end was espec ially good where luke is trying to blow up the deathstar.. but unfortunately doesn't quite make it.. *sniff* ;) Anyhow, If you want my opinion, I suggest you download this straight away and have a look, because it [b]will[/b] make you laugh :D I also especially found the camera work and use of location very good - they've managed to find a good map to use for every section of the film, and it all just works! I'm gonna have to take a few points off for it not being an original rap mind. :( ~Szico VII~




Masamune (v2) | 196.18 KB

just isn\'t right about it. Whether it\'s the sounds, or the saber trails, there might be something you want changed. So take a page out of WaR_ShArK_aX\'s book and make the changes yourself. WaR_ShArK_aX really liked the Masamune sword created by JediMaster90888, but wasn\'t fond of the blade or the sounds and wanted some saber trails back. So after enhancing the color of the blade to make it appear more silver than grey and modifying just a few of the sounds, he was well on his way to a sword mod that he would want to use. The crowing glory would have to be the new saber trail he added to this sword. The trails definitely do this sword justice. Great job! New Sounds: Yep[/quote] Okay, grrr. In the update to this sword mod, the author has managed to please me and annoy me at the same time! You all know how I feel about sounds in weapon mods - but WaR_ShArK_aX actually succeeded in pleasing me with the sword sounds featured in this mod. They work so well with the sword itself. The sword seems heavy, and the sounds match that. There are sparks when your blade hits a wall or the floor and when a saber blocks your sword, the sounds almost make you feel the vibrations as your sword bounces off. But then, WaR_ShArK_aX takes away the one thing I liked about the first version of the mod - the saber trail! I suppose it didn\'t really work with a sword mod - but I liked it! All in all though, I\'d have to say that this is a great update. I will be keeping this sword in my base folder. Great work, WaR_ShArK_aX! ~AmosMagee




Star Destroyer II | 4.31 MB

taken, I think he actually rebuilt the whole thing! This map contains all the standard features - hangar, dorm room, catina, prison, command deck, random room with cages holding wildlife(?), a nice bit of external flight space, and a crapload of corridors. Typical SD interior. I'll start with criticism. The shader error from the previous version is still present, and I doubt it's a shader clash - my base folder is empty. Some of the elevators take far too long to get to where they're supposed to be, which is a bad thing as it induces tedium. My third criticism, is the lighting - it's not uniform lighting, but it may as well be.There just isn't enough variation in the lighting to make it interesting. Bot support hasnt been added in this version, which is a shame. I also found some z-fighting on the outside which no one actually [i]playing the game normally[/i] would probably ever see - but, it's there! :p Onto the good parts - this map provides a great TFFA environment, since certain areas of this map can be used for some very interesting and strategic teamplay. The general design of the interior works very well, in addition to the exterior is very well built. Most of the areas are accurate to what the interior of a Star Destroyer would look like, too. There is one thing to be aware of - don't hit the button to open the hangar door while it's still opening or closing. This will result in it locking up until you restart the map. Every door in JKA and other Q3 engine games does that though, so it's no fault of the authors. Overall, this is a good map for those who like a bit of FFA or roleplay. Check it out - there's plenty of features in here to keep you amused for a while. ~ Kouen [b]Bot Support:[/b] No [b]New Textures:[/b] No [b]New Music:[/b] Yes [b]New Models:[/b] No [b]Patches:[/b] [file=62935]Star Destroyer II - Botrouting Patch[/file]




Batman | 914.46 KB

perfect. Overall there's no real problems with this skin other than the way it looks which is obviously a big factor when you're look at a skin, or any other mod really. It doesn't really say batman to me even though he has that thing on his chest is that sort of looks like a bat. I'm sorry if I am being harsh here, but I just do not care for the looks of this skin. The skin does not have team support but it does have bot support which is a plus. The secondary taunt is taken from "batman tas episode" I'm not quite sure what that is but that's what the author put in the readme. If you could improve the looks of this skin and add team color support I might consider adding this to my skin collection, because I really like the idea.

Morpheus | 1.3 MB

skin colour is a good shade as well. Unfortunately the face kinda ruins the rest of this good model :( The shades aren\'t the right size or shape (as in they\'re not rounded enough) and where the face conencts to the head, theres an awful change in skin tone, which is totally awkward and needs to be changed in order to turn this skin for the better. Now I\'m being picky, but the lips didn\'t seem quite right for Morpheus either. (bear with me, I\'m a big matrix fan) However if you can ignore these faults then this is certainly a good Morpheus skin to add to you\'re collections, and to be honest, it is one of the better skins so far, because it has a custom model as well :) ~Szico VII~




Geonosis Complex | 14.56 MB

perfect, so is the skybox. I\'ll get to the inside of the complex, but I have to point out how impressive the outside was. The screenshots can\'t show the elements out there. The wind is blowing, the clouds are blowing by, there\'s so much movement and it\'s all just amazing. The screenshots also won\'t show the detail inside the complex. But they\'re fairly intricate. The chains hanging, the walkways, the lighting, the teleports ... I love it all. Great work here, Izzy, as always. :D Bot Support: Yes New Textures: Yes New Music: Yes Game Types: FFA ~AmosMagee

been rounded out. It\'s been said in many reviews, and I\'m going to say it again. The saber blades in the movies are never consistent. They\'re always changing. I know! Why don\'t we make a mod that will cycle through all the different kinds of saber tips! Brilliant! Unfortunately, I don\'t think that\'s possible without any coding. Oh well. It\'s an idea. ~Zach




Order of the Expendable Jedi Knights Temple | 25.68 MB

impressed. The author took quite a while in producing this map, and his time and work have paid off. There is much fun availible to the public, as in all clan maps, there are training rooms, and this one certainly hasn't forgotten such. I played around in the dueling arena for a bit, as it looks like it would be the main source of attention. Having a surrounding viewing platform, shielding with glass note, and a door for contestants to walk through and teleport into the arena. The main hall itself is quite large, featuring three floors, while being the same, it does reveal that there are many more areas in the map to visit.. I could not detail everything that this map contains, so I should leave it up to you for further exploration. Definately a map that is staying in my game folder.

Wrecked Alien Spacecraft | 8.26 MB

couldn\'t even get through the whole map. I kept hearing these sounds ... and the music didn\'t help either! I swear, I need to stop opening the pk3 to see what\'s in there before exploring a map. I see something titled \"alien scream\" and I go into the map, already freaked out. I know there\'s something in this map that was waiting to scare the living crap out of me. So I took screenshots as quickly as possible and devmapped the next map ASAP. What I did find though, in my limited time spent in this map is that Jadogoth really knows how to map. And he either has a great imagination or is an alien himself and this is his ship that crashed here several years ago and he\'s designed this map from memory. It\'s a very blue map. There are big doors throughout the ship that open and close loudly. You\'ll find some glass pods in a room with just a wonderfully intricate ceiling. GAH! Okay, I was walking through the corridors and as I rounded a corner, suddenly a force field popped up in one area. I turned to go back the other way and found myself trapped. At this point, I squeaked, then covered my eyes and waited to be eaten by some alien. Fortunately, the force fields came up and I continued. Of course, when things like that happen, you KNOW something around the next corner will eat you. But nothing did. Obviously I was being set up. So I entered the next room which had sparks flying and I kept hearing things scratching or scuttling around. Eventually, I found my way through some other small corridors and into a very dark room with a pulsing light and it was about that time I noclipped for the rest of the screenshots and got the hell out of there. This is a GREAT map and I suggest you all play it. Then tell me if anything jumps out and eats you, or if I\'m just paranoid.

Zabrak Female to Human Female | 2.88 MB

least it would give all of the Zabrak options to the human female. I really do prefer the Zabrak\'s skins to the humans, but I like some of the human heads. Well, this is a start anyway. The author did come close to the skin color - good enough anyway to fool the naked eye. There are more options included in this file than what is shown. So download it and play around with what is available. I hope that the author does get around to updating this and doing more. ~AmosMagee

Grievous mod, nearly identical to this one. I am very happy to see that this author, too, included both the caped and uncaped versions of Grievous. That\'s right.

Mos Espa Outskirts v2 FIXED | 21.46 MB

Sssid says he has now fixed this problem. So if you were having that problem before, you can now play this map problem free! :) Apart from that nothing else has changed here. However Sssid tells me that he hopes to update the map in the future, so I shall look forward to that! ~Nozyspy~ Here’s the review from the original v2 release. [quote]Well, here we have Several Sided Sid’s (you cant beat that name ;) ) latest version of Mos Espa Outskirts. And I can safely say, that if you loved the first version, you will love this. Now, there’s not really any DRASTIC changes, but there’s been quite a bit of polishing done. The falcon has been given a good going over, and looks much nicer inside now than it did in the previous version. There’s also been some new, more nicer textures used, some of which were supplied by Sssid’s friend SathiroN. There have also been a few more tweaks, not all of which are visible to the player, but increase the overall build quality of the map. Watch out for the new location of the famous can of coke, Sssid’s dropped it somewhere again ;) (see screenshot below for a clue) I’m very impressed also, at the overall quality of the map, when maps get to this gigantic size, its easy to miss bugs, and places that may not be built as well as they should. But the overall build quality of this map is very impressive, despite the fact that it’s massive. That brings me to the sheer size of this place. If you never saw v1, (for some reason v1 was never posted here :S) then you have to download this, even if its only to explore. This map is massive, and has loads of areas, from residential areas, to underground passageways, then to docking bays, there’s just so much to see here. This map is great for RPG’ers or anyone who loves Tatooine themed maps, or even anyone who just likes to explore. By the way, watch out for SathiroN’s ship in the SathiroN docking bay, that’s one fine ship! However, as with all maps, there’s always something that can be worked on. However, like I said, the overall build quality here is excellent, so there’s not that many things that I would think of improving. Its mainly just superficial details like textures that look a bit misplaced (there’s an archway into one of the buildings somewhere, I cant remember where, but the combination of textures on the arch, and the surrounding walls didn’t really mix well :/), and things like some stairways lacking clip brushes over them (so when you walk up, its smooth, you don’t bounce from step to step). Also in some places, the lighting from the sky looked a bit flat, and strong. However, its hardly noticeable, for the most part, the lighting from the sky looks fine :) Anyway, as I said, the build quality on this map is excellent. And the size and variety of this map will appeal to anyone from explorers, to RPG’ers. Well done here Sssid! This is definitely worth a download! ;) Bot Support: Yes (on a map of this size, that’s incredible!) New Textures: Yes New Sounds: No New Music: Yes Game Types: FFA, TFFA [/quote]




20th Century Fox | 3.99 MB

:) Okay, so the map is reasonably accurate to the actual logo, however there's a few thing's I'd like to see set straight. Firstly, the lights need to be swinging, as they do in the logo opening - and incidentally you need an actual [b]source[/b] for the lights too - i can see the mechanism for them but there's no actual 'bulb' section in them. Secondly.... you need a specular shader! The 20th century fox emblem is GOLD... not yellow ;) Make it shine! I realise the intro sound in the actual movie is too short for a map, but it would've been nice to hear it somewhere in the map.. but never mind. We actually get the main theme from star wars, which, fits reasonably well. The author has also tried to implement a custom water shader... which doesn't quite work well, but it's better than the default water shaders :D Oh, and there's some small misalignment problems on the lettering, but you won't notice it :) New Textures: Yes New Sounds: No Bot Support: Yes ~Szico VII~




Beware the Rancor Duel Map | 908.85 KB

screenshots and get out. So I\'m just wandering around the map, thinkin\' \"Hey, this is a pretty cool duel map.\" It has a dark dungeon feel to it, there are some bridges out, but it\'s an easy jump from the alcoves to the main dueling area. So then I try to walk across a thin rope thing - and anyone who\'s played with me knows how I am with like, heights and balance and stuff. I fall. Often. I hear a rumbling growl and before I know it, I\'m being mauled by a hungry Rancor. OMG! I decided to spare you all the sight of me being eaten by that beast. The pictures are just too gory. :P Now that I know what this map is all about, I spectate to take the rest of the pics. LOL The floor is littered with bones of previous victims who fell before me and there\'s one cage intact, and another where, obviously, the Rancor has broken out of. If you\'re quick enough, you can get back to the top of the dueling pad by running into the tower where there\'s a bouncy thing that takes you straight up. This is, in my opinion, one of Gigon\'s better maps. All of his maps are very simple in design, but this is one of his more detailed ones. It\'s a duel map, but also supports FFA. This would be a good small FFA map. I kinda like the added pressure of making sure you don\'t fall to the bottom while dueling. The impact shouldn\'t hurt too much, but the Rancor will do his best to finish you off. Great job, Gigon. :) Bot Support: Yes New Textures: No New Music: No Game Types: FFA, TFFA, Duel, Powerduel ~AmosMagee




Duelers/JA Mod 1.1 | 1.6 MB

yet, y\'know? And since I test these mods alone, all I can judge these mods by is how the play is with bots. I do have a lot to say about Dueler\'s Mod for JA though! Let\'s just start with the admin commands, since that is an important part of running a server. Of course, there\'s an admin password, but the great thing about the way this is set up is that you\'ll never have to worry about broadcasting the password in the server! I always encourage my admins to just modify their config files out of game instead of through the console because that reduces the risk of broadcasting the pass. In this mod\'s case, you just use a cvar to set the pass in your config file and you\'re always logged in when you join your server. There are some very useful commands including showmotd, which will show the player the \"message of the day\". There\'s \"origin\" and \"teleport\", which will give you your x, y and z coordinates and then you can teleport to any location on the map. \"Freeze\" and \"thaw\" are much like \"sleep\" and \"wake\" from the JAR mod, which will stop the subject and will not allow them to use their weapon or force and then thawing them will, of course undo that effect. \"Bring\" and \"goto\" are some helpful commands that will allow you to bring a subject to you, or help you find someone on a map and go to them. If someone comes on your server with an offensive name, you can easily rectify that with the \"rename\" command. Then, of course, there\'s the \"boot\" command which will kick someone off of your server. The only thing this mod is missing is the banning command that gives you a lot more room in the banned IP list, like the JAR mod. One of the coolest features that Dueler\'s has is the macro scanning feature. You can keep people off your server who use scripts to do special moves, which many of us find unfair and don\'t allow on our servers. Now the most important thing about this mod is that it changes the gameplay to make JA a bit more like JK2. The roll is back! Plus the author has tweaked the lunge and other attacks to make them a bit more skill-based. I only played with one bot with these new \"un-nerfed\" features and found that the fight lasted a bit longer. It always seemed to me like the sabering in JA was somewhat based on luck. This seems to remove that and give us back a bit of what makes JK2 so much more interesting. One of the big things about Dueler\'s mod is that when people are dueling on an FFA server, your duel won\'t be interrupted by those running by - they\'ll run right through you and you won\'t even see them. So you can keep focused. One of the coolest things added is the Duel Overtime which allows duels to finish before the map changes. There are a ton of new emotes added, most of which you\'ll recognize from JK2. Like the Superman pose, the beg, or grovel pose, kneel (or think), the dancing emotes, the surrender one, hug and there are a few new ones too. Check the list included with the mod to see all of the new ones. Also there\'s a clan chat feature which is very helpful, especially if you only have a few people who are admins, but want to chat privately with just your clan. All in all, this is a great mod. It\'s not too complex, but adds some great features and leaves out the unnecessary ones like in other mods. If you\'d like to learn more about the mod, download it here, or visit the site, which is hosted by at [/quote] I\'m actually surprised that Dueler\'s mod isn\'t more popular than it is. It\'s a great mod that just keeps getting better. Some of the newest features for version 1.1 include grapples and jetpacks. And there\'s an easily managable ban list. You can create custom votes for your server. There\'s a new force power rank and players can check to see the MotD while in game and if there are any admins available. Kicking and saber throws have been enabled for all stances and the author claims that saber collision and damage consistancy has been improved. Don\'t just go with a mod because it\'s what everyone else uses. Shop around. Try them all out. You may find that you prefer Dueler\'s mod after trying it. :) ~AmosMagee




Modders Kit | 535.97 KB

is simply annoying to have to do the guess and check method with your values. Thankfully, Meush has come out with his own little utility, and it’s pretty easy to use. What you get is a program that has three rows, one for each RBG color. Move the sliders, and on the right of the rows you get the “outcome” picture. Pretty simple, and easy. To make it so that you know the values, there are two numbers on the left of each row. One is the RBG value for 0-255, and another is the value from 0-1, which the Quake III engine takes (JKA). This itself will make modding a whole lot easier. Also included is a black and white move and saber background. What’s this mean? Take a look at the saber menu in JKA, and you’ll see a background behind the sabers as they are selected and rotating. This can make blending in screenshots quite a challenge, and it is also just plain unattractive. Whatever program you use, be it Paint or Photoshop, the black or white (whichever you choose) pk3’s will change that background accordingly for use in screenshots. As both a weapon modeler and now a reviewer, this is going to make MY life a whole lot easier, too, and I’m sure it will come in handy for many of you, as well. Nice work, Meush! ~Wassup1444465




Long Saber Mod | 8.44 KB

they get from the standard saber. This little mod will give you a ridiculously long saber that will probably reach all enemies within a one mile radius around you. ;) Nothing else has been changed (that I can tell) except the length of the saber. I can\'t imagine the point in having a mod like this, but it might be fun to try out. *shrug* ~AmosMagee




Arena of the Rancor | 6.97 MB

large oval arena with gates at each end to unleash the beastly Rancors. To assist brave Jedi in the slaying of these monsters are Tauntauns and explosives. A smaller causeway encircles the arena and thus encloses the map. No new textures were included, but the base JKA textures were used quite well. What is most striking, is the dramatic shadows created by the ceiling grating. This creates a great visual break on what would have been a rather boring arena floor. While the layout itself is beyond simple, gamers will enjoy the big open area for an all-out FFA in this dank, atmospheric map with just the right elements of distraction. Enjoy!

Nina: Undiscovered Secret | 21.67 MB

completed. I\'m not saying that there is no ending - I\'m sure there probably is. I just didn\'t play that far into the game. I enjoyed what I did explore. The mod has some combat here and there, but more than anything there are little puzzles that you need to solve to complete your objective. It\'s a tad predictable, but satisfying because it\'s not too hard. Now my biggest issue with this mod is the dialogue. Not only is it TERRIBLY written (okay, there were a few funny things here and there, but generally it could\'ve been better), but there isn\'t any voice acting. So make sure you have your subtitles on before playing. This really ruined it for me. I couldn\'t lose myself in the story. And the text was too fast, at that. Is it still worth a download? Absolutely. I think you\'ll enjoy the mod itself. It just would\'ve been nice if they had gone that extra step and gotten some people to record the lines and had someone else go over the dialogue. Great job, anyway, though! ~AmosMagee




Chiss Species Pack 2.0 | 6.46 MB

you\'re a big fan of the Chiss species, you have to see this skin pack! Kal El created this Chiss Species Pack for use in Single Player and Multiplayer. But you\'re not just getting a few skins here and there. There\'s both male and female Chiss\' (that\'s kinda hard to say ... Chisseseseses... um, yeah) and there are several heads to choose from. At least for the males. Heyyyyy ... look at how many more guy\'s heads there are to choose from! *snarls* Okay, anyway ... they all have that lovely light blue skin and bright red eyes. Oh, and those of you who check the PotD often, might recognize one of those pics there. ;) Okay, so Kal El didn\'t actually reskin anything here. But he has put together a very complete Chiss pack for those who\'ve been wanting a different look for that species. There\'s bot support for both the female and male Chiss and he added some NPC\'s. Something completely unrelated to the Chiss thing - Kal El added RGB color support for the Rodian NPC\'s. So now they\'ll spawn with different colors. You guys may recall a Chiss female pack that was submitted by Tatsu Kogarasu. Kal El asked me to credit Tatsu Kogarasu for the idea and \"for proving that it was possible to edit the female skins without horrible results.\" :) ~AmosMagee




The Force Unleashed 2 Starkiller Pack | 10.25 MB

that any work that he sends in is simply spectacular. 5 regular, 2 team skins, and all of them up to DarthPhae's usual standard of work, which is in itself, quite impressive. I still use his DF2 Yun to this day, just because of how excellent it is. He really can turn the jedi_HM model into something potent. So, speaking of, this is yet another Jedi_HM reskin pack, and as I said before, a very potent one. Wielding his mighty digital artistic tools, DP has turned Jaden into Galen Merak in his own unique manner, sketching up 4 of the outfits that you apparently see him in the upcoming TFU2. These are, from what I'm guessing: A kamino clone outfit, a utilitarian suit, a ripped jacketed suit, and a jedi-ish robe of sorts. But wait, what's the 5th? Apparently, a mutated/incomplete clone will be featured as an enemy in TFU2, and has been skinned into such. It looks quite malevolent, and thankfully, he doesn't have red eyes! WOOOT. So, anything wrong with these skins? Not really, there's no graphical oddities with DP's work. I guess my only QQ would be the obnoxious cinematic lines that were included as taunts. However, that's just personal opinion, and should in no way impact your judgement on these skins. DP whipped up a set of modified Jaden Male sounds to help compliment the rest of his Merak clips, which go along rather peacibly. I'd say we've got a complete package here. With all this in mind, I'd say this pack is the answer to any rabid desire to be Starkiller that anyone may have. I'm tempted to keep this pack in in anticipation of all the fanboys who will inevitably come to my server ;_; with this pack in. It's going to be a looong week.

Realistic Sabers | 43.63 KB

JK3 Saber Menu Mod | 5.42 KB

of the Single Player game. Raven tried to appease us by giving us a saber in the beginning of the game in JA, but once again, it wasn\'t enough! They teased us with the promise of a staff saber or dual sabers later in the game. RED SITH deals with our complaints of not having those options from the beginning with a mod that allows you to choose what saber you want from the very beginning. So if you\'re frustrated with having to just use the single saber for the first half of the game, download this mod and play Single Player through with the saber of your choice! Personally, I prefer using single saber anyway. To each his own! ~AmosMagee




!SoS! Underground | 9.64 MB

say it always fits the feel of the map, but it still looks pretty amazing (albeit impractical in some cases ;) ) I say impractical, because although the architecture is great, I do wonder why some of it is there - for example, in the red corridor (see second screenshot) why is there railings going up the wall? Strange. However that\'s not really a negative point at all, just a bit of an observement. The lighting in this map seems very Doom3 inspired, as does the rocky with lava theme. Of course this is all in line with a Sith-themed building, for the SOS clan. (Shadows of the Sith) Ah, I hear you cry, \"It\'s a nasty old clan map.\" No so - there is one little section with a picture of the clan and a \'coming soon\' picture which spoils that room, but aside from that you really wouldn\'t realise this is a clan map, and besides it\'s so well made I would have advised you to try it even if it had been plastered with clan logos. The ambient sounds, while used very well with the lava splash effects, seem just a little wrong for the sound of laval, and where the giant rumbling coems from is anyones guess, but the ambient music is fantastic for the style and setting of the map and both visuals and auditory effects come together really well. The map comes with full bot support, so no qualms here, and there\'s some very nice movers in this map as well - I liked the room with the giant cog - great work with the sounds here, and there\'s a nice feature on some of the duel rooms whereby this sign outside the room ligths up when people are inside dueling. This is a little buggy, as sometimes when people go in/out in twos and stuff the light somehow switches around (i.e its on when people aren\'t dueling and off when they are) However, this was mostly a very rare occurence. I advise you to take a look at this map, although as much as I am impressed by the map, it isn\'t my kind of atmosphere, it\'s too dark and \'indoors\' (lol :) ) but that\'s not to say it is in any way a bad map :D New Textures: Yes New Sounds: Yes Bot Support: Yes ~Szico VII~

won\'t mind putting on your server. You won\'t find clan tags or pictures plastered all over the map. In fact, I was pleasantly surprised by this map. While I\'m not fond of all of the lighting used in this map, there are some areas that are just pretty to look at. Fortunately, it\'s also a fun map to play. There are some areas where the water rushing by looks as though it will sweep you under and over a waterfall - and that\'s exactly what happens. There\'s a bedroom in this map, but I like it. Generally I\'m not a fan of clan maps that include bedrooms because they\'re usually plain and useless. Not in this case. The bedroom is quite lovely, with a bath that I would LOVE to have in my own room. There are plenty of places to duel and FFA. Weapons are well-placed, so is the ammo. It\'s too bad no new music was added, but that\'s not a huge complaint for me. I did find some minor z-fighting in a few places, but it\'s not enough to be an issue. My FPS was decent. Overall, this is a good clan map that I wouldn\'t mind placing on my own server if I still played JA. :P Bot Support: No New Textures: Yes New Music: No Game Types: FFA, TFFA ~AmosMagee

did a forward jump I could see a space between the lower edge of my screen and the hand on the first person view. The model itself appeared to be simple, but detailed to me, although I really couldn’t see that much in-game. Then again, when you’re looking at a weapon model in-game, you don’t see much. Anyways, this looks good, and in certainly an improvement from the previous version. There have been a lot of improvements to this model, so enjoy. ~Zach




Jaden Female | 831.52 KB

for! It\'s not bad for a first attempt either, it doesn\'t re-skin the entire model but changes bits here and there (most noticeably that top!) The shading isn\'t very realistic and looks like a blending in PSP but still it works and it certainly leaves little to the imagination about what is there. If you play SP through and want a change, here ya go, if you\'re one of those guys who like the models that reveal the female figure somewhat, here ya go, if you want to whine and call it dirty and perverse...DO NOT POST IT HERE. I will have no mercy on anyone who goes too far in the comments, if you really don\'t like it because you disagree with it then do not post...comments are for comments on the skin itself, not what you think of what the skins stands for.

Pit Droid | 1.69 MB

happy. The model was nicely done, and looks really realistic. It doesn’t have Team or Bot Support. I can kind of understand why there would be no team support, who wouldn’t want a red or blue pit droid? I wish there was Bot Support, but I can live without that. The thing that made me real unhappy, was the new sounds. I love the new sounds, they sound so realistic. I listened to them by opening up the .PK3 and extracting them. I couldn’t wait to test them out. Well, they didn’t work. It was so annoying have a pit droid sound like Kyle. Trust me, it can get on your nerves after a while. After close inspection of the .PK3, I found the problem. The author forgot to include the sounds.cfg file with the model, that would tell the model to use the new sounds. Since it is missing, the game doesn’t know to reference the model to the new sounds, so it uses the default Kyle. I hope the author releases a new version, one that fixes this. Cause, this model would :rock: with the new sounds. Bot Support: No Team Support: No New Sounds: Yes, but they don’t work. NPC Support: Yes -Airm




Aayla Secura VM | 1.63 MB

my favourite female character in the movies, although she didn\'t say much lol. The model has three different skin variations, red, blue and black clothes, all selectable from the player menu. The model isn\'t perfect, the face doesn\'t look totally accurate however it does Aayla justice and doesn\'t make that big of an impact on the model. The clothes aren\'t too bad either, they\'re done rather well especially with the choice of three. There is bot support, team support as I mentioned and NPC support, however no new sounds unfortunately, but there isn\'t much that can be done about that since there is a lack of sounds from Aayla and the Female Jaden sounds fit perfectly in my opinion. A truly great model worthy of any JKA owner\'s download, certainly my favourite female model so far, and the best Aayla so far, the others just didn\'t look enough like her.[/quote] Marz has fixed the problems with the previous version, the biggest one of course being the lekku (tentacle thingies on the head for those who don\'t know) are now smaller and it really does help the model look alot more like Aayla now. Other new things like the improved face and body make this an obvious download for any Aayla Secura fan. Not much to say but great improvement Marz, Looks alot more like her now :D New Sounds: No (Female Jaden) Bot Support: Yes NPC Support: Yes Team Support: Yes -Rink (Yeah, back for the time being :D)

Imperial Warehouse Night Raid | 18.04 MB

textures for the map, are really realistic, and make the map feel some what authentic. As you may have guessed from the title of this siege map it is not set within the star wars universe, as such, and has objectives such as, destroy the drugs shipment and destroy the nuclear missiles, however although the map isn’t set within the star wars universe, you can either play as the storm troopers or the J.E.D.I. When I test played this map on my clan server, I couldn’t help but notice all the comments about how fun the game play of the map is, and I have to agree with them, the game play for this map really is amazing, and it is certainly enjoyable to say the least! The map does have a few bugs however but trust me these do not subtract from the map enough to effect it seriously. ~Wolf Bot support: No New Textures: Yes Game Type: Siege




Olts Keldor | 9.66 MB

choice, so that you can use it in TFFA. That's 36 different skin combinations, not including the colors! I haven't even attempted to figure it out with the colors, imagine if you used a mod with it that could do RGB :p. How many combinations would that be? Besides the wide range of possible selections, the author also added new sounds. They sound the a Keldor behind a mask, just what you would expect. But wait, there is more. There is also Bot and NPC Support. So, for all of you who are still on dial up, you can spawn these guys and time you wish. Everything worked for me, so I didn’t find any bugs. The sounds are great, I like them. This is great for somone who keeps getting bored with the default skins, and whats more choices. New sounds: Yes. New textures: Yes. Team Support: Yes.

Carrack Light Class Cruiser | 66.98 MB

structural/detail brushes could easily have fixed this problem. Still, there's always the ability to make a v2 right? The map itself, lag aside, looks very nice. You lose the atmopshere a little in some of the crew's quaters, with very out-of-place posters, including one of what 'appeared' to be an imperial officer with a moustache... very odd. There's not just the cruiser either, you can teleport down to a planet which is shrouded in red fog. Don't ask me how to teleport back, I couldn't find out how.. I wasn't too keen on the red fog personally, and theres a few errors with it, it doesn't always envelop obejcts properly and you can sometimes see random bits of skybox. The gun turrets here which aim and shoot at your are very cool though! :thumbsup: The skybox itself also looks very well-made, works fairly well with the environment. The best sections are by far on the ship, although the top of it in space where that laser-cannon is needs to be edited so the textures don't repeat as much. I enjoyed the hanger, although it was a pity you couldn't fly the ships, instead being teleported to a cockpit, which you can't actually use :( Nice idea though. There's also some controllable droids which although fun at first, quickly become kinda pointless, plus they take up a lot of your vehicle limit. Overall the map has a good design, but is severly flawed by lag and doesn't flow particularly well, as you'll find when having to travel by slow lifts and long corridors, with no bot support! Tut tut ;) New Textures: Yes New Sounds: Yes Bot Support: No ~Szico VII~

and arrows that keep you headed in the right direction. Jump on a swoop at the Start line and wait for the announcer to start you off. Then you\'ll race against others through many different tunnels on the track, all the while having a view of the city through windows on the side or above you. You\'ll also pass spectator areas where people will cheer on the leader of the race. There are obstacles like big, moving blocks that will try to crush you and knock you out of the lead and buttons that you\'ll need to slow down and press with the nose of your swoop to open up the next path you\'ll need to race down. At the end of the race, you\'ll be greeted by more spectators and the applause of the crowd. If you\'re not in the mood to race and plan to just watch, there\'s a room where you can choose which area you want to watch the race from. It\'ll transport you to one of three areas and each area has a teleporter to take you back to the start line. If you\'re announcing the race and starting off the contestents, there is a place for you to stand and press the button to get them started. All of the new sounds are perfect and the map is a lot of fun to play. I suppose if you wanted to duel or start a small FFA, it\'s feasible, but really this is a JKR map. This is definitely my favorite JKR map to date. Great work, Sith-J-Cull. I can\'t wait to see more JKR maps from you.

Mos Eisley Trap | 28.45 MB

Titanic (everyone’s heard of that ship right? :P) and the Britannic. Another example is a story, it has a beginning, middle and end. Take one out, and the story wouldn’t be complete. Yet another example is cookies, you have chocolate cookies , double chocolate cookies and triple chocolate cookies! Ok I will stop blathering on about how good the number 3 is now :P But really, as you can see, lots of cool things come in threes. Here we have yet another great thing that involves the number 3. This isn’t any ordinary map, no, this is a map made by…you guessed it! Three great mappers! This unique map was produced out of the combined efforts of Several Sided Sid, LivingDeadJedi and Sith J Cull! What a team eh? ;) Now, lets get down to the map. First of all let me say that I have NEVER got the same feeling from any map, which I got from this one. The feeling I got from this map was quite unique, and it’s quite difficult to describe. I suppose the best word to describe it would be…epic, I get the same kinda feeling from this map as I get sometimes when I play Starwars Galaxies, that really epic felling of being in a massive world that you can explore. The feeling I got was also one of the map being ‘alive’ you could say. It can be a bit lonely sometimes exploring a big map on your own, but I didn’t feel that with this map, the map really felt alive. I think the map being set at night contributed towards that feeling, with the sound effects, like the cantina music, and all the flickering lights, the map really felt alive, I almost felt I could go round a corner and find a group of Jawa’s or criminals plotting something! Like I say, the atmosphere in the map is brilliant, great lighting, nice architecture, epic feeling. What’s the construction like though? Solid. That’s one way to put it, being made by three of the best mappers out there, you can tell its really well made. I didn’t see any texture or structural bugs whilst I was exploring it, considering the size of the map, it gets a big thumbs up there! ;) As for the size of the map, epic would once again be the best word to use there. There’s loads to explore here, from the cantina (where of course, that cool cantina music is playing), to a hotel, to a restaurant. Careful you don’t get lost! One cool feature that I really liked was the massive docking bay that you can go in, which contains…Sith J’s Millennium Falcon! Unfortunately though you can’t go in it. :( Sssid tells me that they tried putting the interior in the Falcon, but with all that extra stuff, the map wouldn’t compile. It’s a shame, but still, just having the Millennium Falcon there is cool. Unfortunately one of the side effects of having such a large map, combined with lots of flickering lights, is that in certain areas, the fps will be quite bad. There were one or two places that my FPS went down a lot. But on the whole, I got pretty good FPS throughout the map. Probably one of my favourite areas in the map would be Jens diner, I think that area, with the bar and hotel rooms nearby, Is just great. ;) I really love the way that all the different parts of the map mesh together. Sith J Made the Falcon, Sssid constructed the tall buildings around the outskirts, the little speeders (which are back from Sssid’s Mos Eisely Meanstreets map) and the bobbing ‘Trilong’ ship, as well as adding lots of lighting touches. And LivingDeadJedi did areas like the Cantina, the Hotel Building and the wonderful terrain! As for bugs and other things, I really couldn’t find any structural or texture bugs. The only thing that bothered me was the low FPS in some areas, and that there were a lot of flickering lights, but that was quite subtle really so it wasn’t too bad. Also personally I thought the music was a bit dramatic for the night-time setting of the map. Personally I would have preferred more relaxing music, like The Jedi Academy theme music. But it’s still cool! :) All in all a great unique map here! As Sssid describes it “Mos Eisley Spaceport by night. You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy. You might, however, find Sssid's can of coke! Have fun!” Bot Support: Yes (on a map of this size that’s incredible!) New Textures: Yes New Sounds: No New Music: No Game Types: FFA ~Nozyspy~ ***NOTE*** Don’t forget to look out for the famous can of Coke that Sssid has dropped somewhere in the map again!

Serra Keto with Sounds | 976.19 KB

be on JK3Files, so that\'s an added bonus! I\'m hoping the author of the sounds doesn\'t mind that I added him [i]and[/i] Mars as the author. Since this model isn\'t yet up on JK3Files, I feel the need to critique it as well. My first impression of it is that she is quite stocky. It doesn\'t seem to look that way in-game, but in ModView she looks a bit heavy-set. The skin itself seems rather good, except in a few areas, and despite the proportions of the model I like it well enough, and may actually keep it. Now for the sounds, added by Kurt Libengood. He says he ripped them from the Episode III game. Now I don\'t want to know any more about that, because odds are it\'s not legal, but a few sounds never hurt anybody (nor made anyone not buy a game - that\'s the point of a EULA, right?) so I\'m going to let them slide. They seem to fit the model, and as I have no idea who Serra Keto is I can\'t comment on it any more than that. I [i]can[/i] say there was a particular taunt I absolutely adore... \"They\'re right, the dark side [i]does[/i] make you ugly.\" Made me laugh quite hard :p So for a model that had no original sounds, we now have some. Hopefully Mars doesn\'t mind his model being posted here along with all the rest. Good job on the model Mars, good job on the sounds Kurt, and may the community enjoy!

Episode 3 - Mustafar

episode_3_mustafar.rar | 31.41 MB

or whatever. Here we got a map which the author made basing it on what we saw in the movie, nothing more nothing less. We got the landing platform where Padme\'s ship is docked, we got the bridge on which Anakin and Obi start out fighting leading to the control room which also has the conference room, finally we got the balcony on which our two jedi fight and ultimately leap down to the giant metal arm that collapses near the end of the brawl. All these spaces look very good and I must say it\'s the most accurate in proportion in my opinion. Some other maps are either way too big in some areas or way too small, this one feels more like you\'re on a very nice replica of the set. The only thing here is that the bot routes are not defined. The music is the battle music from the movie instead of just the Battle of the Heroes, which is good. Overall a nice map, not very big for a big fight but good enough for some roleplaying or just hanging out and fighting the big fight. Download this now! :D [i]Ayane Yamazaki[/i]




()Academy | 10.05 MB

one map, and consequently, it doesn't flow very well - each area doesn't merge with the next, almost seeming random at times. There's also the problem with the framerate. Whilst some areas are okay, a great portion of the main fife areas have a framerate that is less than brilliant. This could be solved with a more solid design and linkage between areas, using structural brushes and than areaportalling off each area. The lighting is for the most part, very nice - sometimes it can be a bit vivid, but most things have a source and the lighting is appropriate for the scenario. There are exceptions however - some corridors are far too bright and the outside sections are far far too dark. The patchwork in this map comes in sporadic sections of excellence - the biological-looking room being an example. That room is creepy, I swear, so I didn't like getting locked in there too much. Creepy, but very well-made. The rest of the map also shows better than average design work, with models and brushwork combining to create some nice ambience. There were parts I didn't like though - many of the doors and switches were silent, causing confusion as to whether they had been activated or not, and whilst the author attempted a portal sky, the terrain just looks far too fake - the texture repetition on them really lets it down, despite the nice clouds he's added into it. The music also has its up and down points - the beginning is nice, but then it degenerates into a soulless rhythm. The many clan logos and star wars pictures posted around the place also spoil the setting, pulling you out of the otherwise believable world that ZidZabre has created here. There is also a small bug created by the sky portal in one area, but fortunately this is the only area it appears to be affecting - whereby giant black 'curtains' appear across the corridor. There's a lot more I could say about each and every area of this map, but it would simply take far too long, and if you like the look of it it's best if you simply try it yourself. I enjoyed exploring it, both through beta and this final stage, and whilst I am disappointed the author didn't fix some of the errors I pointed out to him at that time, he should be proud of what he's managed to create here. Except for the fact that he didn't include botroutes. Bad Zidzabre! *slap* ;) New Textures: Yes New Sounds: Yes Bot Support: No ~Szico VII~

Spectator Followers can now be kicked, banned, etc. without affecting others. mvstr - command that allows you to choose which map you want in the rotation, without disrupting the order. mnextmap - executes next map available in rotation. Most default settings that were in reloaded.cfg are now hardcoded into mod for faster and easier configuration. mnpcaccess does not give client access to cheats. You can now use clients names for assigning mnpcaccess/mnpcnoaccess. g_mAdminGun - Enables/Disables AdminGun system. (includes script) g_mAllowTeleFlag - default is enabled, if set to 0, clients cannot teleport during CTF and CTY gameplay. New BanIP.dat file stores banned ip\'s. Full use of 2048 saved ips activated! Tweaked the whois command a little again to make it more stable. g_mGiveAdmin - if set to 1, you can grant an admin access level to anyone on the server. madminaccess, mdenyadminaccess - commands for granting/denying admin access to clients. Enable/Disable use of black color names. New logout function - to logout as an admin or knight. Ignore - ignore certain clients from chatting so you dont have to listen to them. Sleeping clients can no longer use the kill command. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- With that said, here is the latest version of Jedi Academy: Reloaded. According to ChosenOne, there were quite a few code tweaks, but I\'m not gonna get into that. One of the cvars that I love is the g_mSTFU ... hehe. When enabled, it\'ll silence chat on Duel and PowerDuel gamemodes. Chosen also mentioned that one of his favorite things in this mod is the Empowered vs. Terminator gameplay. I can\'t say I\'ve tested it yet, but I look forward to it! He\'s also included some cvars that allow you (the server owner) to set permissions for Admins and Knights. So let\'s say you have a group of admins and you don\'t want them banning people - just sleeping and kicking. Just set the appropriate values and voila! Speaking of banning, the new banIP.dat ... y\'know the one that in JK2 would hold over 1,000 IP\'s ... yeah ... it now holds 2,048!!! Very cool. Of course, I don\'t think I could ban that many people. My JK2 banned IP list never got full with JA mod. So, now with the aminfo and amhelp commands, they\'re like, customized to the permissions that you have as an admin. Very cool. The admin gun, popular among some admins, is now enabled. Personally, I just didn\'t like using it. Not a good enough range for me. And frankly, I\'d end up sleeping or kicking the wrong person. Oh, and it looks like Chosen fixed a few bugs from version 1.0. Be sure to read the readme for the full list of changes and features. You\'re going to need to read the whole thing if you\'ve never used the JA mod before. I\'d like to personally thank Chosen for making such a wonderful mod that helps to keep servers under control. My favorite feature, by far, has to be the sleep command. With it, I can easily get a lamer\'s attention and explain the rules to him - instead of having to kick him because he continues to lame, but isn\'t reading the rules. Y\'know? Jedi Academy mod for JK2 was definitely the best admin mod out there. I am fairly confident that Jedi Academy: Reloaded will become a favorite for us in JA. [/quote]




Neo | 2.47 MB

that doesn\'t look quite right to me. The skin itself is fine, it\'s the head that looks a little funky. Like right above the eyes. And the ears are a little too high and too big. So it just looks weird and disproportionate. Is that a word? I think so. *shrug* Anyway ... the red team skin is just the default skin and the blue one is Neo with that ripped shirt, y\'know? And I think he has a blindfold on as well. Bot support is included, but no new sounds. Why not? This is Neo!

Battle of Geonosis - Siege | 19.97 MB

however the author has converted it to siege :) As far as I can see it is much the same as the FFA version, with the addition of locks on the doors leading to the Siege objective (you didn’t expect to just be able to walk through did you? :P). Also the FPS is much better, and the lighting appears to be slightly different (personally I liked the lighting better before, it was more orangy and kinda fit with the setting better). Also there has been a change of skybox, which I must say looks very good, for a base JKA skybox it fits very well with the Geonosis setting! Let me get to the main point of this map though, sure it’s a siege map, but its special because there is only ONE objective. This is the only siege map that I have ever seen that only has one objective. What this would play like in a siege game I don’t really know, I would imagine that it would be fast paced and frenzied! Seeing as there’s only one objective to capture / defend to win the game. There are a couple of ways into the objective room, so I would imagine it would be great fun (and tough) to try and get in / defend that room! Now onto the rest of the map. Overall this is a very nice map, theres plenty of nice details that really give it that Geonosis arena feeling. From the main arena you must either jump up to the next level or walk through very narrow steep passages, which im sure would be interesting places to try and get through in the middle of a battle. There are a few things that could do with fixing though, one would be that there are a few weird looking shadows around. Now, I believe these may have been caused by the author using phong shader/textures. Remember, if you use a phong shader on a surface that has been clipped in too many places (for instace if there are a lot of cuts going through eachother) then that can sometimes throw up weird looking lighting/shadows in that area. Overall the shadows arent too bad, its just in a few places they look a bit strange. One other thing also to do with the lighting would be the passageways that you must climb to reach the various levels of the arena. The passageways are all very bright inside, which looks a bit strange considering that there are no light sources to make that light :S Also the floor is very dark in contrast to the walls, which may have been caused by the phong texture/shaders the author used. To improve this you could maybe use a texture that isnt attatched to a phong shader for the floor, and also have maybe some kind of light source inside. You could use one of the base JKA models, they look a little like landing strip lights. You can find this model in the misc_model/map_objects/desert folder, the model itself is called landing_light. If you find that this model is a bit big for the passage ways you could just scale it down. To anyone who doesn’t know how to change the sizes of models, all you need to do is select the model and press the N key to get the entity window up. Then in the Key bit, put: modelscale and in the value bit put the number that you want to scale the model up/down by. For instance 2 would make the model twice the size, and 0.5 would make it half the size. :) Overall this map is nicely made, and is a pretty good representation of the Geonosis arena from Episode 2! The single siege objective should certainly make for some interesting games, so if you like the look of it, give it a download! ;) Bot Support: No New Textures: No New Sounds: No New Music: Yes Game Types: Siege ~Nozyspy~ (Also included are skins of people who appeared at the Arena, including some Clones, Count Dooku and Kit Fisto, made by various authors. It definitely gives the map even more of a Geonosis arena feeling when you play with these skins! ;) )




JK:JA Skinning Tutorial | 1.21 MB

reading it - you might want to check this skinning guide out. The best part about this tutorial is that it\'s in plain English. The only thing the author assumes is that you know how to use Windows and you can quickly learn a new program. That is, if WinRAR is new to you. It works pretty much the same way WinZip does. Very easy program to grasp. So if you can use those programs and some photo editing software of some kind, then you too, can skin! My only issues with this tutorial were the spelling, capitalization and punctuation errors. They were everywhere. Now, I make mistakes here and there, I know I do. And sometimes I don\'t really care about grammar and I make up my own words! But seriously, the author did this tutorial in Word - it\'s not that hard to just run it through the spellchecker real quick, y\'know? Anyway, decent tutorial - not that I read through the whole thing, but if you can get people skinning in just 10 steps, I\'ll be impressed. :) ~AmosMagee




Galen Marek (Starkiller) | 3.7 MB

Using the Jaden model as a base, the creators built off our SP protagonist and shaped him into the protagonist of the much more recent game "The Force Unleashed." Gaze, and behold, but do not become disappointed, for the creators wish to announce that this version is merely a [b]teaser, rather than a full proper release.[/b] As such, you can more than certainly expect a new, more powerful version to compete with DLX's model in the near future, complete with revamped face and new outfit choices, of course. Speaking of which, what outfits are we blessed with? Not much, just the standard "training gear" you often see him in, along with a malevolent Sith Robe of sorts that I never actually beheld before. Quite imposing, indeed =_,=. So, in likeness and appearance, it still has a little ways to go, of course. There are little bits and pieces that the authors are aware need to be fixed which leads me to reiterate the bugs they are aware of: [quote]There are some weighting problems here and there that we hope to fix for future release, face and some other textures aren't finished yet.[/quote] The face is not rigged yet, so expect a cold blank stare for a while until that's fixed =_o there are also a few minor clipping problems with the sith robe version, but this is to be expected. Otherwise, you really can't go too wrong with it. I guess the only problems I have with this model lie within the sound department. Most of them are Jaden, and there's only one sound. This wouldn't really irk me normally, considering the status of the game, but did ya really have to use that taunt over and over again in the sound directory, including in the victory sector? I mean c'mon... I guess the only thing I should probably mention before wrapping this up would be that there's no new extras besides the sounds, but here's hoping the authors will =_= fix that as well. My piece is said, my mouth becomes useless. Let your eyes glaze over once more, and then let your hand do your mind's bidding...

Boba Fett\'s Hideout | 9.02 MB

pad. It\'s a good start for a great map. When you walk through that very cool door there, you find yourself in a lovely ... well, almost a courtyard. There\'s a small creek running through and a beautiful bridge that takes you across to a small circular clearing with only one tree in the center. Then there\'s a building with very few hallways. Inside you\'ll see a Carbon-Freeze-Chamber-esque room and then outside again is a perfect area for dueling. Up on top of that platform that I\'m not quite sure what it is. But it looks great. :) I suppose I\'m an easy person to please. I always love James\' maps. But believe it or not, I have a few complaints! *gasp* First of all, what ship is that there, anyway? And where is Slave 1? There is a JK2 model of that. Why wasn\'t that used instead? Also, if this is a \"hideout\", why would there be jetpacks laying around everywhere? Why not create an armory for the jetpacks and weapons? Well, I know the answer to that ... gameplay would then suck. :) And finally, the FPS. Mine was fine, but on slower/older systems, it\'s going to be quite choppy for you in some areas. As always, it\'s a beautiful map, James. Though I\'m not sure I\'d want to play a guns FFA on it - it seems quite suitable for saber only FFA\'s, actually. Plenty of areas for dueling. Great job! :) Bot Support: Yes New Textures: Yes New Music: Yes Game Types: FFA ~AmosMagee




Jedi Knight Eris | 22.06 MB

with, but there are hundreds of variations possible here, so if you can\'t find a variation that suits you you\'re far too picky. This pack features HapSlash\'s Obi-wan model, skinned to include 4 heads, 35 torsos, and 6 lower segments. It also contains bot support. Should you decide you do not wish to use the species customization included with this skinpack, you can opt to leave it out and keep just the normal skins, however you lose much of the customization power you might have otherwise had. The only thing I really would have preferred here is new sounds. This skinpack, while it still [i]looks[/i] like Obi-wan, is not supposed to [i]be[/i] Obi-wan, so new sounds to really solidify that would be first on my list for improvements. There\'s definitely no need to suggest more variation here - we\'ve got about as much as is humanly possible. So much so, in fact, that the author had trouble getting it to work because there were just too many choices! So enjoy the author\'s toil in bringing these variations to fruition for your benefit. If you\'re a fan of the Obi-wan model, as I imagine most of you are, you\'re likely to find plenty to enjoy in this pack.

Padme\'s Apartment | 22.62 MB

frustrated that I couldn\'t go up the staircases in this map. And they look so freakin\' inviting too. The textures used are just beautiful. Everything is so opulant here, which is just what I\'d expect of Padme\'s Apartment. My absolute favorite part of this map is the area with the couches. That area is just gorgeous and perfect. I really like the animated, neon billboards just outside. And there are a few pads to duel on. Seems to me this would be a perfect Powerduel map. But it\'s a bit too small for a large FFA.

Tournament of Ieyasu | 6.15 MB

you just want to play through one or two levels of some single player action, but you crave a new story and some new action. While the Tournament of Ieyasu doesn\'t really have a story, and it really just plays as a ladder, it\'s still nice to have something, y\'know? The lighting was a bit too dark, I thought. Your opponents aren\'t all that difficult, but they should keep you busy for a while. It\'s supposed to be a tournament with no force, but like, the NPC\'s sooooo cheat and use force on you. Anyway, it\'s a fun little SP campaign that should satisfy you until another one comes out. :) ~AmosMagee




Bobo\'s Jedi Trainer | 2.01 MB

explain in his own words: [quote]This is not a ladder. This is my Merry-Go-round Style Trainer. Designed to be hard, not excessively so, for intermediate to experienced players mainly. Originally this map was a ladder, but that was really annoying. So I made kind of a Round-Robin thing. This latest incarnation (and the first one I\'ve submitted) features two Jedi at a time. They start one a hard level and one an easy. When you kill the easy one a harder one spawns. When you kill the hard one an easier one respawns. And they up and down like that. You could call it a ladder, but I prefer something along the lines of a Merry-Go-Round. This map was designed not to help newbies get better, but to hone the skills of intermediate to advanced players. (This is not to say that newbie shouldn\'t play it, just that they might get frustrated at first.)[/quote] I played this for at least an hour and never survived long enough to know if there\'s an end to the NPCs, lol. As I\'m not the most skilled duelist, especially in JA, I\'m probably the n00b Bobo was talking about. ;) The only thing I would change about this is maybe get more of a variety in the enemies you battle (at least model/skin-wise) and add a briefing at the load screen with some information and hints. Technical Data: Pros: 1. Good solid dueling. 2. The Reborn Acrobat, Fencer, and Force-User skins from JK2 have been ported for use in this mod. Cons: 1. None, except a seemingly infinite supply of minions attempting to wreak havoc on my body. Rating: 8/10 JEDIofONE :mepimp:




Battlefront Endor | 10.14 MB

things. In my opinion this map wasn\'t ready to be released yet. The most obvious problem with this map is the z-fighting in the trees. You can\'t see it in the screenshots, but when you play the map, you\'ll see what I mean. It doesn\'t affect FPS or anything at all, but it drives me nuts. Some of the plants seem out of place or are just too sparse or something, and the colour seems a bit too bright on some of them. I understand the weapon placement, but I don\'t like it. Really all of the weapons should be spread out around the whole map instead of in one big line down a hallway. That really bugs me. Plus there are just some things that could\'ve been cleaned up - like, there are some lines that are just too sharp, shapes aren\'t fully defined or something. All of those things aside, this is a great map. And it\'s bigger than it appears at first. There are two sides outside and swoops here and there. I have to say I had more fun flying around in this map than others because of the hills and trees. I don\'t want to tell you much more about this map simply because I think you need to download it and experience it yourself. :) Bot Support: No New Textures: Yes New Music: No Game Types: FFA ~AmosMagee




Taspir: Clan Edition | 3.39 MB

observation deck that sorta looks like a council room, in a way. There are several buttons that will allow the person at the helm to close the door to the deck, randomly strike lightning at the players below, or control the lighting on the pad below. There\'s a bar added at the bottom of the map ... y\'know, near the lava ... and it\'s actually the best addition to this map, in my opinion. There are some lava waterfalls as you enter the bar. The room itself has a nice shape and design to it. As much as I like the bar, everything seems a bit oversized. It would\'ve been nice to see the Taspir theme continued in the additions for this map. The rooftops just don\'t have the same Taspir look. And I did find some gaps here and there. So it\'s kinda like ... hmm ... let\'s see if I can think of something to compare it to ... like if you were to buy a model ship already assembled and stuff. It looks perfect as is, but you want to add a few things to it, and instead of using the same materials, you use cardboard and paint that doesn\'t match just right.

Arevass | 5.42 MB

literally couldn’t find any bugs on this map. The ONLY things I could think of to improve (I personally believe that a perfect map is IMPOSSIBLE) would be to make it just a little bit bigger, maybe having an area with a large cave or something that you could go in. The only other thing, would be the portalsky, the texture on it looks a bit too stretched. The only way to fix that, that I am aware of, is to make a larger texture for it (for example, on my Mustafar map portalsky I used a 4096x4096 pixel texture, insanely big, bit it did get rid of that nasty stretching). Now onto the good bits, which was basically 99.999999999999999999999999999999999999999999% of the map. The water…..oohh the water. It looks really beautiful, and extremely realistic. And the water lapping against the shoreline and the rocks in the water (which is based on one of Sith J’s shaders) looked just brilliant. The terrain looked brilliant too, also extremely realistic. The use of models to create the cliffs around the map is also very well done. There’s excellent use of lighting and textures in this map (the sky looks beautiful), and some excellent shaders too. Such as the banner (originally a texture from the Korriban texture set) which looks like its moving gently in the wind. Also, the rainbow type things in the map, like the one that is in the waterfall (just like they are in real life) are something I’ve never seen in a map before, so when I saw them, it totally blew me away. Now for the sounds, which again, were used brilliantly. The tweeting birds, the music, it all fit in with the map really well. I always think some fitting music, and especially ambient sounds, add to the feel and realism of the map, and it certainly did here! Excellent job m8, you have made a map, that I’m sure even the guys at Raven would be proud to call their own ;) I seriously cannot wait to see more work from you :) C'est bien fait!

Lost Temples Map Pack | 4.92 MB

all that impressive when you first spawn into it. I wasn\'t quite sure what to expect, but it seemed a bit too bland. I approached the statue in the center and and thought that was kinda cool, but meh. So I explored some more. And I saw these three portals that apparently went to different rooms - I certainly didn\'t expect to be taken to like, another world. :) I won\'t tell you about each place because they\'re also the duel maps included in this pack. One very cool feature for each arena is that you can lock it by pressing a button near the door to lock it for a full minute so no one else can enter. Korriban Tomb - A very colorfully lighted map with large angular pillars, a light fog throughout the whole map and some nice detail. There are small rooms that surround the large area for dueling where a throne sits. Yavin Temple - A very high ceiling here, as is the case with most Yavin temples. Tall windows line the walls and there\'s a structure that obstructs the area, which always adds some interest to a duel. Praxeum Temple - Probably my favorite of the three duel maps. There\'s a low-ceilinged room with triangular pillars with blue lights embedded in them. It\'s a dark map, but take the elevator up to a brighter, blue room with large round pillars and familiar textures. Bonus map - There this extra map thrown in that is great for duels or FFAs, I\'m thinkin\'. It\'s just a big colosseum with some very nice details, but also some bland and boring textures. I have mixed feelings about each of the individual maps, definitely the Praxeum Temple being my favorite. It\'s a concept close to that of the JK2 favorite Cloudshark. It\'s perfect for those JA FFA servers where people mostly duel (well, the FFA map, that is). Great work here!

Vegito v2.0 | 5.15 MB

designed for a similiar skin or not, but unlike the Goku skins I\'ve seen, this definitely works! Vegito isn\'t Goku, but very similar so I suggest any Dragonball Z fans out there take a look at this. My only complaint is that the clothes are a little bright, and it would\'ve been nice to see a little more detail on the red top, but the eyes, face and general likeness are spot on. Theres two skins included here, one SSJ version (Super-Saiyan) which is basically the normal version, which has black hair, except now with blond/gold hair. There are taunts, but they don\'t exactly fit with their use, for example one of the choking sounds is completely out of place and theres often music playing behind the taunts, but it\'s not a major downer to be honest. There\'s no team skins or bot support which is a pity, but the skin itself has very little to criticise, aside from a slight texture mismatch under the ears - which you\'ll never see anyway. So overall, yeah, a very good skin [/quote] The author of these skins seems to want to make it very clear that the name is \"Vegito\" and not ANY OTHER SPELLING. Well, if specifics are so important to him, let\'s focus on his skins, shall we? The first screenshot is supposed to be Vegito, I guess. I did some research and looked up several photos and found that while there are several interpretations of the color of his clothes, they were mostly an orange shirt, with orange sleeves and either an orange or blue belt thingy. This skin has a red shirt, orange sleeves and black belt. Hmmm. I could be wrong, because I know next to nothing about Dragonball Z (um, that is the right series, right?). Anyway, there are team skins, but they\'re not red & blue as they should be. And then there\'s another dude and blah blah blah. Bottom line, this is a GREAT model with some new skins. *shrug* One thing fans of Vegito might like is that there are a bunch of new taunts included here.

Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith Lightsaber Blades | 356.29 KB

RotS when I was watching it. The author states that this style grew on him after seeing RotS several times, and that in addition to modifying the core he brightened the color (and changed blue completey) and increased the resolution of the saber glow so it\'s more smooth. Yeah, I bet you smelled a gripe coming. All good mods have gripes. This mod is good enough, but I just don\'t like the glow. It seems to me like the author slightened the cores, pointed them, but left the big fat glow alone, and now it just seems too big. I\'d like this mod a lot better if the author went back and resized the glows to match the new blades, however that\'s my personal preference so you\'ll have to decide what you think for yourself. ~Inyri

Movie Saber Clash effects Mod | 115.28 KB

the body look like a saber clash. Overall it gives the effect of a more realistic saber fight because it doesn\'t look like you are actually hitting anyone, making it perfect for movie making. It also makes the saber fights feel faster paced and exhilarating. I can only really see two downsides to this mod, firstly it would give you a bit of a disadvantage in duels, and normally you can tell if you got a good hit in or not. Also you still get the shield effect which kinda ruins the feel of it. Maybe that could be changed in version 2 *hint* I think this is probably one of the most practical mods I have ever seen; I can see a valid use for it. All in all, Good Work -TheSpike




Jk3Duelpack | 598.71 KB

first duel map is simply a landing platform in Coruscant. What looks to be a large eclipsed moon hangs low in the starry sky. There\'s plenty of room for a good duel or powerduel. The second map is reminescent of the duel pit from JK2, to me. A small round room with an annoying pit in the center and platforms all around the room. Simple design, but it\'s a tried and true design that always works for dueling. And the look and feel is a bit more stylish than those from JK2, in my opinion. Here\'s the best part - both of these maps have bot support, for those of you who don\'t play online. And it\'s small in size, for those of you who don\'t play online because you\'re on dial-up. ;) There are no new textures, or new music. But both maps look good and are fun to play.

JA Saber Hilts | 160.95 KB

Desann saber looks very good in my opinion, along with the Luke saber. The sounds that are used on the Luke saber sound very good. The reborn saber was pretty plain looking it was like any other saber in the Star Wars world. The sabers are only for duel sabers and the single saber, so for all you staff people I guess you can say shucks. I really liked the Luke saber because of the nice look and the sounds he used from Return of the Jedi (ROTJ). There are not too many JKA hilts out there right now and most of them suck (no offense to those who made them and they sucked). The bottom of the Desann saber looked a bit strange because of the texture, but thats just me :). So umm there isn\'t too much to offer, but hey its three hilts in one yipee! So I would download it mainly for the Luke hilt not as much for the others. The thing that I liked about this is that it takes just as much thought and concentration to make a hilt as it does to wield a saber. The hilts look just like a normal Star Wars hilt nothing amazingly strange on them. Overall these saber hilts were a pretty good bunch. The reborn I didn\'t like so much because of its overall plainness. The Desann saber looked pretty good it had all the good touches put onto it just like on the spikes. The Luke saber is probably my favorite and you would know that if you actually read the review :). Just hearing the sounds on the Luke saber made me like it. Personally I would get this set of hilts and seeing that it isn\'t too big of a file it shouldn\'t take you too long to download it so for all you lazy people like me get your lazy hand on the mouse and hit the download button and yipee! Good job cHoSeN oNe maybe you can now make a whole set of the Star Wars character\'s weapons and hilts :). I am out! *Walks away into a galaxy fairly close* -XgamerX New sounds: Yes




Luminara Unduli | 666.44 KB

the model is pretty spot on. The clothing textures are all magnificent, and minus some strange hilighting on the hands and cheeks the flesh textures are rather good, as well. If you're looking for a good female model, this may be one to add to your collection. As would be expected by such a well-rounded modeller, the model comes with bot support and team colors, as well as NPC support. No new sounds, unfortunately, so we will all have to make do with female Jaden. Bot Support: Yes Team Support: Yes New Sounds: No NPC Support: Yes




Final Fantasy VII - Midgar | 26.58 MB

loads? The "has lightmap but no lightmap stage" errors are bareable...even though there's tons of them and the "untargeted target_teleporter" are numerous too! Then way at the top, func_train without a target. None of these errors will prevent gameplay just it doesn't look good to load up a map and see a console full of errors like that so for the next version they have to be fixed! I spawned at the top of a tower (for those of you who know FF7 it's the tower when you're trying to get into the Shinra building and have to run up those several screens of ramp to find Barrett fighting someone at the top. I looked over and saw the Shinra HQ...this is absolutely amazingly done, if you spawn here go all the way back down and just look up (screenshot below) and you see this huge building towering above you which quite frankly I have yet to see done better before (FPS issues aside). Next thing I noticed was the train pulling into the station, there's a bug with the window on the train as it lets you see effectively through the train to the platform behind...however due to the shine it's easy to mistake it as a reflection so in the end an error turns out to be a nice feature. The old train yard is here too looking great if not a little dark, lots of little stuff to collect in there...I just wish there were some ghost NPC's or something to really finish it off! In fact....there's an idea, how about for v2 you get someone to model an enemy or two from FF7 and in certain areas if you walk around there's a trigger to spawn the NPC next to you. It'd bring in that uncertain battle feel that the Final Fantasy series is known for. One area that is lacking in detail is the village, it just seems to simple and lacking, I know the FPS is already an issue but that area just needs more, it's too small and doesn't have the grime and atmosphere it had in the game. If you manage to get up to the top of the Shinra building (and it's no easier than in the game!) then you'll be greated with several rooms taken from the Shinra Inc building; the top room is the office and there are some things that really needs to go...the user logos in there, those logo's just don't work in this map; remain true to the game and avoid advertisement! I like the computer monitors however with the screenshot of your PC on a FF website, neat little idea. There are several open areas for fighting and it is of course perfect for sniping. Besides the FPS issues and those logo's I think this map has major potential; and I love the music choice, catchy to say the least! Gametype: FFA, TeamFFA, Duel New Sounds: Yes (and cool music!)

Chryonic\'s Sabers & Lightning (v2.0) Final | 1017.67 KB

blue saber. It\'s just blinding. The green saber seems to match the lightning that\'s included in this pack. It has more of a teal color to it. The orange and yellow sabers haven\'t changed much. The purple saber\'s core looks thinner and the red saber has a firey orange glow. So it\'s kind of a weird saber mod. The only consistancy I see between sabers is that they\'re all brighter. Now the lightning mod I kinda like. I suppose I like the idea of color-coodinating your saber with your lightning. In fact, I\'m surprised no one\'s made a mod like that yet. Anyway, all that I noticed about the lightning is the color change. There are no new sounds. So, if you\'re a fan of mini-mods, check this one out. Maybe you\'ll like the changes made with the sabers and the color of the lightning. [/quote] I suppose I didn\'t really need to take screenshots of the sabers myself, since the author included some greats screens already. However, I did want to show you guys the sabers side-by-side so you could see how different two of them are. And I don\'t really understand why that is. The orange saber has texture, while none of the others do. And the red saber (maybe the yellow one too) seems to have a thinner core. I have no idea if that was intentional or not. But anyway, the sabers do look great - and I\'m not one for saber mods. :P The trails are very cool and that\'s what Chryonic seems to focus on. I think the author succeeds in keeping this mini mod that includes matching lightning simple and understated. This final version is much better than your first. Great job. :) ~AmosMagee




Rancor Party | 11 MB

trouble for listening to that song, it matches the video quite well. You need Divx to play it or else you are just going to hear sounds, now doesn\'t that sound like fun! There are like five or six rancors running around chasing the players and the player are just hopping around enjoying themselves sounds fun right? Wrong, they were brutally maulled by the rancors *tear*, but they came back to life amazingly and slaughtered the rancors, YAY for the jedi kind, or sith kind. He mixed the beginning of the song a long with the normal song \"Do it like on the Discovery Channel\" was the name I believe. It was quite the party for them it was funny because they were just having a gay ol time, yes I said gay giggle all you want. The action in the movie was quite funny and the best part about it all is well I don\'t know if I should say this, but the Rancors weren\'t harmed during the filming, they were harmed \"Afterwards\". *Poaches a few wild Rancors* I Didn\'t do it! Moving on the action was funny just to watch not spectacular, but funny. The music that was mixed a bit was great for it, I watched it without the video and just cracked up listening to it all over again and in the beginning I had no clue. The quality of the video wasn\'t that good, but it was decent I\'ll give you that so you can see what they are doing. If you want to see this video make sure you either have headphones or speakers to listen to it heh. In the end of the film more sith died that jedi YAY! I mean it was quite a shame for the sith and the jedi to lose their lives taming these wild rancors brave souls. Well then good job Quanhan gave me a good laugh :) I appreciate it. -XgamerX




Vader\'s Meditation Chamber | 2.26 MB

Meditation Chamber is the same room that you fight Rosh in. And what you have here is exactly that. I\'m supposed to be impressed because the author created this room, like, from scratch. He just took some screenshots in-game and built this map from just some images. Impressive. :) Of course, this is a great map for a good duel. Plenty of room and good lighting. I\'m just not all that interested in this map. And it\'s not the author\'s fault. This is Raven\'s design. I just find it a bit boring. Thankfully, there is bot support included. You can never have too many duel maps on a duel server. So add this to your rotation for variety. :) Bot Support: Yes New Textures: No New Music: Yes Game Types: Duel ~AmosMagee




Stance and Animation Modification | 16.85 KB

uncomfortable and unpleasant, and don\'t mesh as well with the combat animations as the new strong stance does. Strong stance looks like like the normal medium stance, but it has that \"heavier\" look about it. I like it much better than the default strong stance. The real treat of this mod, though, is the blaster block animation, taken from one of the many katas. It looks really cool when you use it, and despite the fact that I don\'t like those other two stances I may keep it just for that. Whether or not you like the stances, however, is entirely a matter of opinion, so don\'t take my word for it - check it out yourself and see what [i]you[/i] think. ~Inyri




Big Rancor NPC | 1.72 KB

Mutant Rancor. And man, I thought a normal rancor was big. These things are downright humongerous, \'specially the huge one. Author\'s screenshots below will show ya what I mean. Anyway, if you thought trying to kill a normal rancor was hard, certainly have fun with these babies. -Shahadi

can be used, which is exactly what this mod does. It snatches the Hoth Gear from Single Player and allows you to choose it as clothing for the entire game (or in Multiplayer). Yes, you can select it from the menu - No, you don\'t need the mod to select it - Yes, it is extremely difficult to do it without the mod. Personally, this is going to be my pick for skin on jk3files until I have one to call my own, but I urge you guys to all get this. It has a new set of pants, and a new torso for ya. - Chrono New Torso: Yes New Pants: Yes New Head: No




General Windu | 5.85 MB

Mace Windus. Hwargh, is it a large load of them. To cut time, I simply suggest you take a look at the readme to see all the skin variants. Accuracy-wise, in terms of the face, it looks VAGUELY like Mace Windu. To ensure my assumptions were correct, I found the picture that Spanki copied off of with the real thing. Looking at them side by side, the facial structure actually looks surprisingly similar in the nose, ears, and head. However, Samuel L. Jackson\'s eyes are a bit farther apart and less glistening (too much shine in the eyes) than the skin\'s, so the accuracy is harmed slightly, but only because of the model. That, and maybe the skin tone\'s a bit off, but all in all, it\'s a pretty good shot. On everywhere else, the model and skin\'s about as dead on as they could be. All in all, a very nice skinpack. I may consider keeping it myself, if not for at least the sith variant =_,=. Otherwise, I\'d advise you to go and acquire some bandwidth to round up this skinpack, as you will probably enjoy it highly =_=.

Jedi Temple Battle Map | 9.23 MB

that I really like, and then there are parts which I really don't like. As a gameplay map, this certainly doesn't have the best layout, and the framerate is far from good, but it is acceptable. Architecturally, it is a gold mine. Unfortunately, this particular mine only has sparse deposits of gold. Although what architecture there is is very aesthetic, it just isn't consistent. Some rooms, such as the medical lab, are incredible, as are most of the areas of interest, but in between the focal areas, there's huge sections of repetition and several lapses in quality, such as in the long hallway overlooking the city, and the archives, which were by far the worst places. :( The lighting also lets this map down somewhat - mostly because it seemed very blurred and unfocused - lacking definition, but also because there were a great many unsourced lights, or rather the sources didn't match the illumination. There was also some 'splodge' lighting in the circular room with the globe, but that was kept to a minimum. I did like the use of the player models as statues though; they looked very impressive from a distance. Not so good from up close I'll admit, but it's good to see people taking the initiative and moving away from the overused Korriban ones. :D The other small problems included small areas of Z-fighting, missing noises on doors, models you could shoot through, (use physics_clip to combat that) misaligned textures and mismatched patches, which left gaps between the seams. Aside from these small errors though, as a whole, the quality is above average. I do think including the council chamber/meeting room would have been a good idea though! But not including bot-support was a very BAD idea. New Sounds: Yes New Textures: Yes Bot Support: No ~Szico VII~




Auto Replier (v1.2B) | 1.14 MB

color to heart and changed it to a dark blue. It is a bit easier on the eyes. I never used the app myself, so I can only tell you the changes from what the readme says. The Auto Replier is a good replacement for Kill Trackers, if you want something for auto messages and for running your WinAmp. There\'s also a minimizer included, so you can toss your other minimizers into your recycle bin. It\'s nice to see an application that combines so many things into one, so you can save on space and save on running so many programs at once. The only bug I recall was that you could really increase the amount of spam in a server by typing something like \"AmosMagee has entered the server\" and the auto replier would kick in. I believe Nikita (one of my admins for the JK3Files server) showed me that bug. Gah. Can\'t stand spam like that. Anyway, it seems that Accident fixed that bug, though he didn\'t elaborate on it in the readme, so I\'m not sure. [/quote] Well, since I haven\'t much else to say about this latest version, I\'ll just quote show you what the new features are for this version: [quote]-User has option of viewing the playlist at the side or at the bottom This will allow people who have their desktop resolutions set to 800x600 to now modify the playlist -Added !commands to list all available commands in the console -Added in game !now function to display system date and time -Added playlist menu bar -Fixed the /clear bug; it no longer spams the console. -The self inflicting death will now work with female skins -End of duel messages now work correctly with people who have long names (I think..) -Fixed the bug where the playlist would sometimes not play the selected song -Randomized the time at when the round end messages appear; this will hopefully make it so the messages will appear more often[/quote] ~AmosMagee




Battledroid SP | 13.55 MB

However, the author mentioned the voice problem, so scot-free for now. army of cyborgs..yes. I think that shall do wonderfully. Oh yes, offer your bandwidth, if not for the change in combat, then for the fact that you\'ll need those machines TO DEFEND AGAINST MY CYBORG ARMY. - Averus Retruthan




Advent Children Buster Sword Replacement Mod | 947.04 KB

I like it, though. It's certainly better than pretending the Buster Sword is brand new, but it looks like he just darkened everything up and added a default photoshop texture over the sword, and it just isn't working for me. First of all it looks like the texture stretches, which is no fault of Shadowknight's, but it should have been taken into account. Secondly the texture pattern is just too large. It is better, though, unless you like brand new shiny swords. [i]That[/i] is purely a matter of taste, though. There was one boo boo the author made, which you can see in the screenshot. See, I didn't have Orion's original pack when I tested this, but the author basically just copied the original .sab file so it includes all the entries from the original, so there are a lot of hilts listed that don't actually exist in the pack. This isn't a really big problem, though. If you don't have the original pack, don't use those hilts. If you do have the original pack, then there's no problem. ~Inyri

Nothing else new here. Except he has a gag thing over his mouth now which looks good :) There are also some new sounds, of which I believe are from Dragonball Z, however I am not sure.

Docking Tower Seven | 9.15 MB

who\'ve been in the JK community for a while and try out different maps all the time must remember Chapel of the Ysalamiri. :) That was rgoer\'s first map, I believe. And he did an amazing job with that. Now, I recently mentioned that most mappers need to remember to keep things simple, but that isn\'t always the case. This is a duel map and so rgoer had a lot of room to play around with details and props and the result is just incredible. I\'m not sure what to call each thing I see in this map. So I\'m just going to say that overall, it looks amazing. My FPS was a little low for a duel map, but it didn\'t affect gameplay for me at all. While there\'s no new music added, the music chosen works perfectly for this map. In my opinion, all duel maps should have bot support, and rgoer didn\'t leave it out. Though, that may have been a requirement for the map contest, I dunno. Doesn\'t matter. I only wish rgoer would make more maps! :) Great job!

Episode 3 Stances | 8.24 MB

like they emulate stances others chose not to. Blue is supposed to be an Obi-wan stance, yellow is quite obviously the Dooku/Anakin duel stance from Episode 2 (do they use it in Episode 3, too? I can't remember...), and red is supposed to be Senator Palpatine's stance. The dual and staff stances seem unrelated to the prequels, and while they both seem rather... ineffective, they both look pretty cool. The whole saber system in this game is relatively ineffective, though, so whining about an ineffective stance is pointless ;) Overall a good set of stances, with some new material I haven't seen before. Worth a look if you're a stance guru. ~Inyri




PROTOTYPE mod | 1.99 MB

them, but this one had something different. Something...weakening about it. Anyways, there are two files included here. One is a skin of Alex Mercer, and the other is a collection of weaponry from Prototype. I'll start with the skin. I was a little...well, I can't say disappointed, because I didn't expect much from a reborn reskin. Since it's a reskin, it's about as close at it can get. However, the bottom of the white shirt really could have used a more defined edge, and the front of the vest should be unbuttoned. I think the jeans also need some work, too...they don't look too jean-y. No new sounds - altogether, I give it a "meh". Fortunately, the best has been saved for last. Five new sabers have been added that will give you Alex Mercer's hands to hack and slash with. The claws and fist are included, as well as the two-sided blade (don't know what it's called). All of them fit over your hand like a glove (a boxing glove, but still, a glove), so it adds to the feel of being mr. Mercer. Now, because of the glove being there, naturally, there are some bugs. Most notably, when you put away the equipment in JA+ mode, it either sticks out of your chest or sticks into your back. Ouch! It isn't fixable, but who cares, it's worth it. The other one was that the claws and thunder fist both gave a saber glow at the map's origin (I didn't check the sword). I'm sure this is fixable, as I've seen it before. There you have it. Download at your discretion. ~Dretzel




Quinlan Vos Model | 1.66 MB

popular models to reskin for JA, so far. The model comes with several different versions, including a regular Jedi one, another regular Jedi one with a long coat, two Jedi robe ones, one dark brown, one light, two armored skins and then there\'s a light version of the first ... um, are you confused yet? Yeah, just look at the screenshots. There\'s a lot of skins there. The model is fabulous, of course. The skins are great too - there\'s a ton of choices here. The only downside is that there\'s no bot support, no team support and no new sounds. But since this is such a great model, I\'m willing to overlook those things. ;) Oh, and this happens to be Aaron\'s personal skin, so if he doesn\'t want custom sounds and stuff, I guess that\'s like, up to him and stuff. Wonderful job here. :) Bot Support: No Team Colors: No New Sounds: No ~AmosMagee




Twilight Manor | 17.09 MB

seems most of the community now tend to RPG more than actually play the game, which is a little frustrating, but there it is nevertheless. So no deductions for you Jenova. :) I spawned into the entry hall, and whilst, the brick texture used seemed overly-large and somewhat cartoonish, the rest of the area was very \'pretty\' and the lighting was especially atmospheric. The entire map, for that matter had a nice soothing ambiance, which I believe was 50% due to the nature of the map, and 50% due to the music. I tried playing without the music and it just wasn\'t the same, so my advice is to play this map with the music on, or you\'ll miss out. There\'s a great variance of areas to try out, including a few duelling rooms, some dungeons, a swimming pool, a dojo, a boxing ring, a bouncy castle..... and so on and so forth. It\'s not all that original, and to my horror, It had a bar. People need to stop putting bars in their maps. Seriously, it\'s getting tiring. The two best areas were definitely the outside ones, which looked very inspired by Arevass and FarCry, with the little guard towers and the circular pillars. They\'re a little small, and I actually found one of only a few unsourced lights there, but they\'re just nice to look at, especially the waterfall, although don\'t get too close if you want your framerate to live. Speaking of framerates, this map is probably the first large one I\'ve seen by Jenova which has got a fairly decent framerate, so well done there. It could be better - there\'s still portions of the map drawn to the player which needn\'t be, but it\'s not so bad that it causes severe lag. Architecturally, the map is also above average, and although draws on themes from a lot of other people\'s work, somehow this map manages to combine them well. The swimming pool especially reminded me of the one from Tomb Raiders manor house, mainly due to the textures used in there, and for the most part, I\'m pleased to say that the map is well built. Of course, there\'s always a few buts. First-off, the bouncy castle just looks plain ugly as it is, super-lit. Secondly, you can jump on the walls and see area\'s you\'re not supposed to see. Finally the mushroom section. Not only is it utterly pointless, but if you look down you see a square block of water, and if you look up you can see other areas of the map from the outside. :( In the camera room, there\'s also a ton of HOM errors when you stand too far back from them. On a positive note though, there is bot support, which whilst not brilliantly done, works well enough - and anything is better than crazed jumping bots. As I\'ve mentioned before, the best part of this map is the ambiance brought about by the music, lighting and kind of fairly-tale theme in some areas. Kinda reminded me a bit of the Mario castle at first, with the painting room and stuff. But I digress. Whilst the map isn\'t the best map ever conceived, I admit, this is one of the few maps recently which I have truly enjoyed exploring, and I\'m sure many of you out there will too.

there is one problem with it. The author left the original sounds.cfg file in it but didn\'t include the actual sounds, so if you don\'t have the original model you\'re going to hear stunning silence when using this guy in-game. However I think most of the people who would download this probably already have the original, so it may not be much of a problem.[/quote]The sound issue has been corrected so you won\'t be the amazing silent clone anymore. However the shader issue has not been corrected, so the visor still won\'t work.

Jedi Council GCX - 2010 | 37.22 MB

remember our server using it JedicouncilGC ad nausea. Erstok, in whatever enterprising mood struck him that day that he began, has decided to "update" JedicouncilGCX in an effort to breathe new life into the map. His plan? Rebuild the entire thing from scratch and make his desired changes. Now, before I begin, let me elaborate on the basic premises of JedicouncilGCX. This map was essentially the headquarters of the {O} clan back in the early 2000's. Somehow, someway, this map got leaked into the public, and was never officially released, per se. Since then, it has served as a grounds for Roleplay in a Jedi Temple setting, or a general hangout map for Jedi-oriented clans. In an effort to show you all just how the old and the new differ from each other, I will be describing each individually as I walk you through the map. We'll start in... -=The Lobby=- Old: This was always my least favorite room as it was always big and empty, and didn't have much appeal to me with the white marble. This room consisted of a large arched hallway with massive cylindrical pillars and red carpet leading up the stairs and around them. A lot of benches and plants were dotted about the general area, and there were many doorways that led to various training rooms, though a select few led to special or transitional areas within the temple. New: The function and architecture of this area hasn't changed much. From what I've been told, the pillars appear to be slightly different in construction, though I cannot say for certain if this is true. The red carpet originally did not lead to the NPC training room or the dark room(covered later,) but now there are paths to these rooms. Lighting has been altered in this area, including sunbeams peaking through the windows, which is definitely a neat touch. The statues, which were originally JK2, are now JK3 Rift statues. Door placement has not changed, however. -=The Dark, NPC, Dojo, and Water training Rooms=- Old:GCX was quite infamous for possessing a motley assortment of dueling/training areas. First, a dark room with minimal lighting and four turret positions at every corner of the room. Second, a japanese style dojo with some display cases in the room. Third, a glass dueling room with a pit of water below. Finally, a half-circle NPC training room, with a slew of default NPCs to train your battle skills upon, and a hidden observation room for teachers. New: The Dark Room now features a monochrome lighting scheme versus the red/blue scheme that the original possessed. The Japanese Dojo has endured no changes, which is sort of a shame, since there's no sourced lighting in this room. The glass dueling room has undergone a major change, with the glass catwalks now leading to TWO exits. The water is also much more shallow than the previous, making it easier to get back into the fight. Finally, the NPC training room has now undergone a full spherical overhaul, and the observation deck is much more visible. -=Archives=- Old: The archives in GCX were massive, almost intimidating. There were two doors that led into the archives, though for some reason, both led to only one section of the archives, with an additional section branching out to another section. Both sections had large grand staircases that led up to the second level, and equally massive windows to provide sunlight. The bookcases were also...just insanely massive, and on the outside of each shelf on the first floor were display cases full of saber hilts. New: This place was pretty much rebuilt entirely. The place is a lot less colossal, and a lot more plausible. The archives are a lot tighter now, which means less travel time, and the stairs are now near the doors, which now lead to individual sections of the archives instead of the same. There's also glass guards so you can't just walk off the second floor and hit the floor. The workstations are all on the first floor, so no random tables on the second floor. Windows are smaller, and the hilts are still there. -=The Hangar, Bar, and Prison=- Old: GCX featured a "Master Windu's Bar and Grill" in the middle of a hangar full of Jedi Starfighters created by Aaron Smith, along with an X-wing and YT-1300. On the upper floor, there was a detention block where people could be imprisoned. New: This update doesn't change much in the hangar. The bar has a bit darker lighting scheme, and now features a switch that toggles some lounge music. Very nice touch. The prison and the hangar hasn't gotten much overhaul other than the lighting, though the wire catwalk is now glass. Alright, this could go on forever... I think I'll do two more areas, and let you guys explore the rest XD! -=The Hallways=- Old: GCX, despite being a great map, had very bland and lifeless hallways. They were pretty much simplistic rectangular transitions. New: The new hallways are FAR more decorative. Complete with a brighter lighting, these hallways now have more ornate architecture with banners at set intervals. SOOO much better than the original. -=The Upper Rooms=- Old: Four elevators led up to an upper floor that led to two bedchamber wings, a meditation chamber, and a council chamber. This room was notorious for having concealed buttons in the council and the bedrooms. New: Wow, this place got a nice overhaul. First off, the bed chamber wings got shorter transitionary wings, filled with benches, a fountain structure in the middle of the room to fill it out better, and similar architecture to the hallways to fill it in moreso. The secret buttons? Visible now. Sorta sad, but sorta nice too. No biggy. The council room and meditation room are generally the same, though the sizes are a little different. Whew...alright, so, as you can see, this map already had a lot to offer back in GCX, and now GCX '10 offers even more. This version actually added the classic space council room from the JK2 JedicouncilGC, which was a pretty neat idea. Along with the new additions, I neglected to mention the new admin room to lock down some of the rooms, as well as the overhauled garden, but honestly, it's worth a look. Now...methinks this needs a 2.1, and lemme tell ya why! 1.) That pillar in the middle of the council room just has to go. It just seems so obstructive, and it makes no sense to place a stone pillar where a human could stand in the center in the middle of inquiries, and council members can't address people across the room without looking around it. 2.) You basically made the same mistake GC did, including enough of the vehicle information to make it semi-playable and displayable, but some of the shaders aren't there. Go beyond the book, and include the full set so people can use it without having to download the thing off of Lucasfiles!(hint, hint.) 3.)See if you can alter the bacta tanks so that a player can enter them. Trust me, seems stupid, but you'd please oh so many people. Seriously, if you include those things, this map would outclass it's inspired work in totality. I say go for it, Erstok. You've pulled a wise move, facelifting this map. Looking forward to see any future versions like crazy. =_,= New Textures: Aye New Music: Aye Secrets to plunder: Aye Bot Support: Aye - Averus Retruthan[/quote] Right, so what's new?! Quite a bit, really. We have a huge textural overhaul. A prime example I noticed is that the training room is now darker and has a HORDE of training damage. The carpet overhauls look pretty nice as well. Now, some additional changes: The hangar has now been completely overhauled, with the starfighters completely removed and in their place, stacks of boxes and a better floor. The bar has gotten an aesthetic overhaul, as did the detention center. Much better security, I'd say. In the medical bay...well remember when I asked if he could make the bacta tanks usable? Turns out, he made new ones and they're quite awesome =_= and they are fully interactive. And finally, the Jedi Council, the hallmark of the entire map, has been touched up, with an Atlantica style halo lamp and the removal of that blasted pillar. Rest well, Erstok, for you have done a great service to the JedicouncilGCX map's legacy. The temple is now much more lived in, and has greatly benefited from your handiwork. I declare this map to be in a far better(and far more RPable!) state than it used to be. Let all rejoice, and make merry...

Ronald McDonald V2 | 845.2 KB

lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun.\" Yeah, okay ... so onto the review. Those of you who played JK2 should remember Barada\'s Ronald McDonald. The look was impressive, but the skin didn\'t have a lot going for it - no new sounds or anything. Thankfully, he\'s changed that. :) It might just be me, but Ronald here looks a little evil. Maybe it\'s my aversion to clowns. *shrug* In any case, you can\'t mistake this clown for any other. The stripes, the yellow, the red hair, the big M - it\'s definitely Ronald. And the team skins are just what you\'d expect - except the blue one looks even scarier. :/ I just love the comic included here to tell the story of how this Ronald McDonald came to be. I suppose it\'s nice to know that Lando could find work after that unfortunate incident. Bot support is included, and the team support we\'ve already touched on a bit. The taunt included isn\'t what I expected, but it works. I kinda was hoping for some other Ronald taunts. I gotta say, this skin is great! I loved it for JK2, but it\'s even better for JA! Good work! :D Bot Support: Yes Team Colors: Yes New Sounds: Yes ~AmosMagee




Siege Endor Mappack | 47.77 MB

maps, its just a shame they are Siege only and not FFA’s too. First of all, the Ewok Village Map; Let me start off with the size. I wouldn’t say this map is too big or too small, infact, I find it…just right really. There’s plenty of space to have a good battle here, whether it’s in the treetops or on the ground. That brings me onto the ground. There’s some excellent terrain here! I don’t know what you used to do it (it seems too good for easygen) but it looks great! Just like a forest floor. There’s plenty of stuff on the ground to explore, all the ditches and trenches, and even hollow logs that you can walk through. Now lets move up into the trees. This map really does recreate the Ewok village feel brilliantly! I absolutely love the texture used for the wooden floor, the idea of using a flat texture with see-through bits around the edges of the wooden planks is very clever. It sort of makes it look 3D without it having to be made out of many parts, which would lower the framerate. The same method of using 2d textures is used again with the trees around the edge of the map. Just a flat see-through texture, but with trees on it. Put a couple of layers of that together and hey presto, it looks like a proper forest! Another great thing is the skybox, which works really well to give the map that forest feel. Unfortunately this map is only for Siege, that’s a shame because I think it would have made a brilliant FFA map too. There has been some clever things done with the Siege gametype though. When you come to choose which team you will be on, there is an actual proper map at the side, displaying the objectives, which is really cool. That makes it feel much more professional. Another thing that is quite nifty is the blue and red rings of light that look sorta like the command posts out of Starwars Battlefront. These are apparently the objectives, and there’s a clever way of capturing them…you need to hold down the use key on the objective, until it changes to your teams colour, which I think is a really cool idea ;) Also another great feature is that as you complete one map, depending on who wins, the game automatically loads up the next map in the series! There are some things that could be improved upon, but like it says in the readme this map is still in Beta Testing. One would be that on both the trees around the edge of the map, and on all the objectives, just at the top of each one, there is a small line, where it looks like the texture used is about to start repeating. So the texture could do with stretching just a little to get rid of that line. Also the big trees to which the structures are attached could do with some foliage adding to them, but the author tells me that he’s working on that, so that’s cool :) All in all though an excellent, and professional looking siege map here, good job m8! Right, next up is the Battle of Endor map. Really this map is very similar in looks to the Endor Village map, except this one is in the daytime. This is also the map that leads into the Shield Generator Complex. As with the Ewok Village map there are plenty of big trees, and some Ewok huts scattered around them. This is probably the largest map in the pack, if my senses are correct. There are a few cool features in this map which include: Log traps (remember all the log traps the Ewoks used in the final battle, like the two logs that swing together to crush the ATST’s head? Well they’re here ;)) There is a catapult too, which if you fire it when an ATST is just in the right position, if will fling a boulder at the ATST that will destroy it. Once again the terrain and lighting look excellent. Probably the main thing that could be improved upon here is the fog. The fog looks kinda weird, because you can see the skybox clearly through it, but all the trees and ground are fogged up. So when you look straight ahead, the fogged up trees really stand out against the crystal clear skybox, and so the trees kinda look like big bluish blobs :/ All I could suggest to try to fix this would be to enlarge the skybox a lot, and then make sure you have a really big fog brush that extends well beyond the playable borders of the map. I seem to remember this worked for me on one of my maps once. I dunno whether it was a fluke though :S To be honest though this map might look better without the fog. Also this map doesn’t have a level shot either. But besides that, another good map here! Now, onto the Endor Shield Generator Map; This map is much much smaller, but still looks brilliant. Once again the 2D tree textures are put to good use to give depth to the map. The terrain is once again excellent and the big pine trees here also look really cool, the dappled shade they create is very nice ;) There are a lot more buildings in this map than there were in the other two, and these are all the Imperial type ones. This would make a great place for a battle weaving your way in and out of the buildings, and pipes. Inside is also great, and very detailed. Probably my favourite part inside was what I presume is the generator room. You know, it’s the one where near the end of Return of the Jedi, when Han and the gang break into the bunker, they get ambushed by some Imperials, and Han chucks something at one of the Imperials and he goes flying over the railing into this big room, with all these pylons that have electricity sparking around them….well that part has been very well recreated here! There’s even a nifty little viewscreen thingy in the facilities control centre that allows you to see what is happening at one of the objectives in another room! And who can forget that insanely large dish outside that projects the shields up to the second Death Star…well that’s here too and its massive!. Things that could be improved upon here: not much really! Probably just the problem with the Objective, and Tree textures around the edge of the map that need stretching slightly again. Although this map also needs a level shot, because it hasn’t got one at the moment. You can also play all the maps with bots (but they don’t seem to work too well on the Battle of Endor map) with the siege gametype, this is what the readme says: [quote] If you are playing by yourself, you\'ll need to open the \"consol\" window and type /addbot nameofbot eg: /addbot rebel [/quote] Also although they are siege maps only from the main menu, there is a sneaky way that you can play them in FFA. Simply start up an FFA map as normal, then, once you get in type /devmap mp/siege_endor_village, /devmap mp/siege_endor_shieldgen or /devmap mp/siege_endor_bunker in the console. Then just spawn bots as normal from the menu :) They actually work pretty well! Unfortunately though the bots don’t work on the Battle of Endor map :/ Great maps here m8, I cant wait to see what other maps you make ;) Battle of Endor: Bot Support: No New Textures: Yes New Sounds: Yes (There’s this guy who actually speaks when you capture an objective, hehe cool!)

Kain_Raziel(XIII) | 9.03 MB

is the kind of material we\'ve come to expect from StingRay, and most of what we\'re getting is old work, to boot! Now the last review I gave StingRay was slightly inaccurate because I didn\'t have any first-hand knowledge of the subject matter, and unfortunately this time isn\'t any different. However I did my homework and cross-referenced with a fan of the series and looked up some pictures, and to say the least for some older models these are both quite good. Personally after my research I\'d have to say the Kain model is the better of the two. It captures the character\'s face very well, as well as getting the rest of the model quite accurately. The only inconsistency I can find (or rather that I was told about) was that perhaps his skin is a little [i]too[/i] green. The texturing on both models is quite strong. It\'s quite obvious that StingRay knew what she was doing when she made these, and undoubtedly is even better now. However especially for the Raziel model the skinning really outdoes the model. Not to say the model\'s bad, however it does have its weaknesses, the first and formost being the musculature. Or lack thereof. As I\'m told, Raziel was thrown into an abyssal lake, burning away his flesh which [i]should[/i] leave his muscles incredibly well defined. This model, however, does not have that definition and rather relies on the skinmap to create the illusion of detail that doesn\'t actually exist. This works sometimes, and other times does not. With the cylindrical legs provided here, it doesn\'t really work that well. However to be honest I really doubt you\'d notice that well while you were playing, so this may be negligible to any but the most fanatical \"I must have a perfect model\" fans. The only other strange thing I found was with the soundsets. One of the death sounds in Kain\'s soundset says \"You know what must be done, Kain.\" Based on nothing bug logic, I\'d have to take a guess that this isn\'t Kain speaking, else I\'m afraid Kain would be speaking to himself, although I suppose that\'s completely possible. You\'ll have to tell me :p. Other than that, though, a great couple of models which I\'m sure Legacy of Kain fans will really enjoy. Despite my lack of knowledge in this area I find them both really cool and well-made models, if not a bit creepy. But hey, I guess that\'s the point!

AT-TE Vehicle from Attack Of The Clones | 807.07 KB

beginning of the Clone Wars on Geonosis. Of course, I have the memory of a gnat sometimes, so I don\'t remember this at all. I certainly don\'t remember it being so big! But kudos to all involved in this model\'s creation - it looks great! ~AmosMagee




Haps Trooper | 1.49 MB

the original model, more of a subtle change, but it makes a difference and makes the model more appealing for me, any way. HapSlash has also changed the team versions from the all blue/red armour that Raven used, and just highlighted select area’s of the amour, and for me it’s an improvement on the raven team colours although personally I would have used a darker shade of red/blue. HapSlash has also kindly included a new E-11 blaster which again adds a few new subtle changes and improves the appearance of the blaster. I should also mention that both the E-11 and the Storm Trooper model replace ravens original models. ~Wolf New sounds: No (Ravens sounds are used) Bot support: Yes (Ravens bot support is used) Team colours: Yes




Clone Commandos | 7.78 MB

created skins of the Republic Commandos, who were featured in the game [i]Star Wars: Republic Commando[/i]. A lively lot of usually four, they were the elite soldiers of the Army of the Republic who were often assigned on covert operations too dangerous for just the average Jango Schmoe clone. The original model restricts this skin from being able to look exactly as it should. The original was based on a stormtrooper, and since the stormtroopers have the more simple back armor, this skin does not have the same Katarn-class commando armor that clone commandos usually wear. However, the aspects that can be accurate are highly accurate, my favorite being the glowing visor and the shaders used to make these guys look the same way that they do in pictures of them. The shaders give them a certain gooey, computer graphic–like shine to them, as if they\'re the actual computer generated images that you see in the movie. It looks great. They have also been dirtied up to a certain extent to make these skins very accurate; I highly recommend them for [i]Republic Commando[/i] fans. Previous clone models have mostly been missing this essential texturing that gives them that extra vibe of realism, which is why I plan to keep these skins because older ones just look too clean, polished, and … milky. Perhaps someone will see how well you did with these skins and will make you a better model to use for them, because in that case, I would love them. In the past, clone models and skins were just that—boring clones—but Kalos knows how to deliver something more than what their name suggests. Very well done, sir, but do try and add bot support and NPC support next time—I still haven\'t reviewed a single four star (10/10) file in my time here; you almost made my day. —Ra-Kom




Clone NPC Pack | 1.97 MB

created the NPC\'s. If you download this NPC pack, you will not need to download the seperate skins/models. This pack alone is all you\'ll need.

Each NPC comes in its own pk3, so you can pick and choose easily which ones you want to use. ~AmosMagee




Link Sword Mod (v3.1) | 12.7 MB

ability to be used as a staff. It came with a shield also that I do not like at all because it is not textured. I liked the Master Sword mainly because it looked good . The problem with the shield is first it is untextured and it is also way too big. The Master Sword looks hot like it is on fire! The Diety sword also looks really cool. I think he just took the sabers from the original link skin and changed them a bit, but who knows. There is a version with blood and I didn\'t notice much of a difference I just think it emits blood :/. Overall this pack is interesting except for the fact that for some odd reason there is another weapon called Wolverine claws and they are just claws :/. They look really cool though! Good job Vouksh and you should know me from a previous time .[/quote] Unfortunately, it seems nothing has changed about this mod. I didn\'t test the no-blood versions of the swords, but I did notice that there was a bit of an error message coming up whenever I hit someone with one of the swords. \"WARNING: Re...\" Y\'know what? Just look at the second screenshot there. So the good thing about this mod is it takes these swords and makes them much more sword-like, and less like sabers. The sounds, to me, were a bit too harsh though. Or exaggerated. Or something. The author says that he made 3.1 to fix the untextured shield ... but ... um, he didn\'t. Also, is it just me or is the damage like way too high on these swords? I killed my bots often in just one hit. Jedi Archy made some comments on the 3.0 version and he made some very good points. I suggest the author go back and read his comment. It might help for version 3.2. :) ~AmosMagee




Solid Snake | 4.17 MB

guy from the Metal Gear Series and graves has captured his style very well, with the bandana, hair and suit. The Sounds are from the games themselves and graves has done great job adding them (It has multiple taunts). You can also select the color of the clothing using the rgb custom character select or JA+ which is real great so just say you wanted a green suit you can have it without reskinning it! ^_^. It just gets better because it\'s got just about everything supported, it has 2 LODs, bot support, OJP support and probably more so really this model is very complete indeed. It’s all looking very bug free too, I found nothing bugged or wrong with it. One of the best models you can get for JKA good job graves you should be proud and keep up the great modelling! I have no suggestions on how to improve it because there’s nothing lacking or missing, which is what makes this model great. Download this if you have good taste in models or you’re a fan of MGS.

I\'d also like to say, it\'s nice to see a whole clan releasing something y\'know, as a team. :) Bot Support: No New Textures: Yes New Music: Yes Game Types: Siege ~AmosMagee




Trade Federation Droid Control Ship | 13.28 MB

of four (also 7/10) and above means that I recommend it; anything below means that it's just another file in the database, from my point of view. CommanderKEEN's well-constructed Trade Federation Droid Control Ship recreates the essential scenes from the opening sequences of "Star Wars: Episode I—The Phantom Menace." Rooms include the docking bay where Obi-Wan Kenobi and Qui-Gon Jinn land, the gassy Conference Room in which they sit for the "short" negotiations, the corridors where they fought battle droids, the bridge where the nemoidians schemed, and something of the author's imagination—a dock control station. Before I get to what I like, I'll tell you the thing that was missing: a good, solid framerate. I can't bring up it's score even though the low framerate is excusable: all big maps like this are bound by the laws of the engine to have low framerate in order for everything to be the way that it's supposed to be, unless you use some handy mapping tricks. Also, the lighting/shadowing was explained by the author to be bad due to his lowly PC (he hopes to upgrade). He's mostly right, but I tend to be really leniant about lighting and shadowing and that whole league of mapping perfection, unless it's so obvious that [i]anyone[/i] will notice or care. The first thing that I noticed when I entered the map was the music, which was fittingly exciting for this map. I spawned in the conference room, where I saw cups near the end chairs of the table, out of which Obi-Wan Kenobi and Qui-Gon Jinn drank during their treasonously short negotiations. I also liked the blockade scene outside windows. Exploring the map, I found that textures (credited to Breath and Leaving Dead Jedi) consistently worked for where they were—except maybe the dock control station, where at least the floor had some blocky, repetitive textures—the elevators had no problems, and the doors opened with a seemingly familiar sound that I hadn't before heard used for opening doors (I liked it, obviously). The rooms were all thoroughly detailed to look the way that they should, and I just happen to like dock control stations (there's something fun about looking down on things from a heightened point of view, even in games). The docking bay should be a great place for dueling and other fun activities, but maps like this are usually reserved for the role-player. It might not be as delightfully feature-rich as some other role-play maps, but imagination tends to make them more fun anyway. I really enjoyed exploring this map—even if the framerate needed improvement—it's a well-tried and mostly successful effort to recreate those [i]Star Wars[/i] moments. I actually thought that it was just the right size for what it is—but if the author wants to make it bigger when he gets a better computer (good luck!), I am in full support. —Ra-Kom




Covenant Elite JA | 3.76 MB

especially with the AI it has, quite superb...anyway this isn\'t a Halo review! So, this is an update to the old Covenant skin, this time including the sounds it had in JK2 and very nicely done team colors. There is nothing quite like a detailed new player model is there? Beats a reskin in my books any day! The detail is there in the skin, the team colors are clear and well shaded..but there are no shaders which I think would really add an edge to this skin, make them slightly metallic in places and it would look superb. One other bot support for them, which is a shame really, it would finish these skins off nicely. The sounds are great to have there now too, an english speaking Covenant is rather worrying! For any Halo fact for any new skin people out there, do get this one, it looks good and even if you don\'t use it, you\'ll be able to see others who do! New Sounds: Yes Bot Support: No -WadeV1589-




The Academy (v2) and Sith Council (v2) Coordinates | 2.93 KB

maps for which he has compiled the list—[file=\"43812\"]Sith Council (v2)[/file] and The Academy (v2)—and you need a mod that supports teleportation, which would probably be one of the two main mods out there, the trite, bloated [file=\"41254\"]JA+ Mod[/file] or the fresh, practical [file=\"28227\"]xMod[/file]. Coordinate lists are always useful for the people who constantly need them: people who are too lazy to just go there, or lamer police. Most people use them because they think it\'s cool to teleport; walking is retro. I don\'t think so, but hey, you\'re you. It must have taken a lot of effort to compile this list, and you owe the author some gratitude for doing this on two popular maps. There are 72 coordinate sets for the Sith Council map and 62 for the Academy, coming to a total of 134. Are you surprised that I didn\'t test every single one of them? What\'s missing here, though, is some interactivity. These text documents could have been made scripts that display the coordinates into your console. This is done by making them CFG files (executed in-game from the console, \"\\exec thefilename.cfg,\" as long as it\'s in your mod or base folder) and using the \"echo\" command, which displays text into your console without speaking it aloud to the whole server. It\'s not practical to have to minimize your game, open a text file, and copy/paste those coordinates back into your maximized game console. Now the author knows how to do it (if you need additional help for this just ask), and so now I expect the author to have an update. Nevertheless, good job to the author for this extensive list, and happy tele\'ing. —Ra-Kom




Hoverboard | 2.44 MB

Forge. There are two pk3s in this pack, one containing the main hoverboard, and another containing extra skins and a single player swoop replacement. When I first loaded this up, I noticed that the readme said that the pack with the extra skins would work only if the other pack was not included. However, after loading up the game this way and finding myself riding a stormtrooper, I guessed that it was a typo that meant to say "will not work without hoverboard_if.pk3" :p Once I sorted that out, I played the Swoop level of JA with the hoverboards. First thing I noticed was the new animations. The weaponless hoverboard stance was the staff stance, which worked pretty well. For the E-11, it was the same, but with the E-11 held sideways, which I thought was pretty cool. With the saber, the hands were held to the side, which was a good pick. The attacking animation, though, was not all that great. It was the sideways staff slash. Due to this, it was pretty hard to actually hit other swoop riders, which was annoying. Something else I noticed, when I was riding along with my saber out, and hit a big bump, the saber went under the hoverboard while I fell and then back to the hand. It can actually look cool at times, spinning around like that, but most of the time it looks like the saber goes nuts and decides to attack the ground before returning to the hand. Now on to the model itself... The model seems to be a simple, yet effective one. Being what it is, something more complex may look bad. The skins are all well done, also, both in the quality of them and the variety of them. All in all, I think that this is a good vehicle set, even with the very few problems I had with it. I encourage you all to download this file for yourselves.




Final Fantasy VII Compilation | 13.61 MB

had to grab this file and set traps around it to keep those other reviewers off. Now onto the review..... First off the new start up, menu, console and loading screens. All of them look good, they fit and inkeep with the mod greatly. There isn't much more I can say about a group of pictures in all honesty. Now, the sword trail and hit animation (dual hound) both look very good and inkeep with the movie and the respective games. The sword trail isn't too dominant as some are, instead it just follows along, modestly increasing the feel of the mod. The new hit animations for the dual hound are great, a little sketchy but thats just splitting hairs. As you can see from the screenshot the author has taken care with these and both have come out well. Next up are the weapons. All of them are well made and have had a great deal of care and attention put into their creation. Buster sword: Everyone's favourite oversized sword. The model itself is great, very accurate apart from one thing, the swords grip seems a little too long, in this model it seems over 1/3 the size of the blade. It doesn't ruin anything but it looks a little off to me. Other than that its all there right down to the materia slots. The textures do the model a great justice and are extremely accurate. In the pursuit of perfection maybe adding a bit of damage would help but otherwise thumbs up. First tsurugi: Again a very accurate model with textures just as good. The fact that most of the details are on the model as opposed to the textures only wroks to make the sword better. Unlike the buster sword this one looks better without any battle damage, probably due to the fact it never recieved any throughout the movie. Masamune: Sephiroths great katana, a simple but awesome weapon. Not much to say for this one, it looks a little short and again the grip seems disproportionate to me but it doesn't bother you ingame. The colours are good and, well, thats about it. Double katana (Souba): Kadaj's sword used to battle Cloud Strife in Advent Children. The model is accurate as well as the textures, due to it being a katana there are very few details both in the model and the textures that warrant a detailed mention. The piece of cloth tied to the guard has been missed for the obvious reason it would be rigid in JKA. Loveless: Personally this is my favourite weapon, simply because its so decorative. The model is great, especially the handle portion of the sword. The design of Genesis' sword is reflected almost perfectly. The textures are well done and do well to give it the right feel. SOLDIER sword: The first blade wielded by Zack in Crisis Core. A simple sword with a rounded hilt and a plain blade. The model fits in well and just as with the rest of the weapons the textures are very accurate. 4-Point shuriken: A nice job done here, from what I can see it looks perfect. Dual hound: A very difficult weapon to achieve accurately in JKA but well done here. The animations flow well with the model and the textures are great. Kudos to the author for not messing this one up, it's not the easiest of weapons to make. Spear: Ah Cid, the most reocurring character in the series. His spear serves to remind us that he was once a Dragoon, a good one at that. The bandages on the pole are well placed and look very good. The part just below the spearhead (I'm no expert on spears sorry) is well made and adds to the superb accuracy of this weapon. Guard stick: Aerith's beating stick, slightly reminisce of those staffs on the show 'Gladiator'. I have always found this weapon slightly comical in a way. Very accurate again here. Overall kudos to the author, this is without question my favourite, and in my opinion one of the best made weapon mods to hit the site for a long time. The new trail and screens all go together well to create that FF feel that many of us know and love. I will definately be keeping this one in my base folder, I recommend anyone who likes FFVII or just well made weapons and pretty pictures does the same. Submit your bandwidth and enjoy. -Sciacca




OmNi Crypt | 22.13 MB

originally done for the DKS Conundrum map, by LordWraith. He worked together with LouMineti on this map for JA. OmNi Crypt is so much like Conundrum that, in spite of the many hallways and twists and turns, I was able to find my way around quite easily. This map isn\'t nearly as dark as its predecessor and it has a lot more going on. Not only can you play this map as an FFA, but also a CTF. You\'ll notice that there are two areas that mirror each other and there\'s no mistaking which side you\'re on. There are many tributes to the OmNi clan throughout the map, but especially in one room with all of the names of clan members, past and present on large columns. There are quite a few secrets in this map, and I\'m sure I haven\'t found all of them. I really can\'t focus on each room in this map - there\'s just too much to go over. A few things I did notice, though, that I\'d like to mention, include the river with the bridge over it. The bad part first - the water isn\'t, y\'know, water. So you can\'t splash around and swim in that. The great part about this river though is the shape of it! So many people do very boring, straight rivers and it was nice to see some angles and a bit of dirt showing on the edges of the bank. This is a very well-constructed map. Besides the music not working, everything else about this map was perfect. Oh, and my FPS was great throughout the whole map! I suppose I only have two real complaints about this map. One - the sheer size of this map makes it difficult to play an FFA on. How do you find people? There are so many ramps and twists and turns - and it\'s difficult to give the rooms a name, so it\'s not easy for someone to find you when you tell them where you are. And two - the shader effects. They\'re blinding. In my opinion, there are shaders used in some very unnecessary areas and it\'s just too much. I had the same issue with Wraith\'s Area42 map (I think that\'s what it was called). Great map, but just too freakin\' shiny! All in all though, this is a wonderful map and I imagine many of you will add this to your servers. :) Bot Support: No New Textures: Yup New Music: Yes (but it doesn\'t work) Game Types: FFA, TFFA, CTF ~AmosMagee

originally made to the Movie Battles mod, you can tell by the fact that as you run round you may run across some objects that have a health meter but having never played the Movie Battles version, I have no idea what they do, if anything. I am very impressed with the features of the map, there is a lift which takes you between the floors, although if you are not quick enough you can get stuck in it. If lifts aren\'t your style you can still take the stairs Id say this would make a good role playing map, Even the size of the map doesn\'t affect Duel and PowerDuel game modes, you will always spawn on the roof giving quite a decent duel area. My only gripe with the map is the lighting level on floor 10, it is just that bit too dark, this was probably relevant when the map was in Movie Battles. The map doesn’t have bot support, which is understandable; you can’t teach old bots how to use new lifts All said, generally a very good map.

General Grievous | 1.03 MB

-[ZoU]- Templar Skinpack | 9.74 MB

wrong) have been released before. The reborn skin review by me is here: [quote] I kinda like this skin, even though usually I hate things devoid of colour. So yeah - The standard skin is black and white (The team versions are of appropriate colours to the team) allover, but the good thing is that there doesn\'t seem to be too heavy on either one of the colours. Often with 2 colour skins one colour drowns out the other, but not here. I believe its skinned off the (*sigh) new-reborn model which i don\'t like at all - This skins could\'ve been loads better on a different model. Nevertheless, its still a good skin. There\'s a general white stripe running down the front with some cool japanese lettering sprawled across it, and then two black patches to either side of the white. Around the back theres the same stripe but it looks like maybe its a metal strap now, because its got some very detailed design on it which looks very good. It kind of looks like the armour from Dragonball Z (except in black and white), but i may be wrong. The legs are skinned in black fabric with some patterns down each side, similar to an adidas stripe on some tracksuit bottoms. He\'s wearing some wristcuffs which again looks very futuristic and cool, and hit hood is black with the similar white patterns on it. Overall this skin impresses, and looks really well made. I won\'t be using it because its a reborn skin and I hate those mostly - but I\'m sure there are lots of you who dont\'! Oh yeah, one more thing. There IS Bot Support and new sounds. I\'m pretty sure the sounds are darth-vader based, especially the taunt, so i think i might\'ve heard them before, but any skin with new sounds is better than one without! [/quote] and here\'s a review of the White Reborn... [quote]Well...Another reborn we go.... What can I say...I am tired of reborn skins. This is no exception to the ones I am used to doing. This bland white reborn skin with chinese or japanese writing on it and the -[ZoU]- name across the back are the main points to this skin. This white skin has some black boots, gloves, and line going up the torso. The arms lack color in one place so it\'s see through there. There is no bot support, team support, or new this is just white and black slapped on a reborn model. I however can not say the parts they actually did change from a reborn look bad. They are alright and I think this author could do much more than this... [/quote] As you can tell by the difference in the reviews these skins are definitly something you either go for or you dont. Personally i love the sleek style of all the skins, each one looks decidedly cool wearing these black and white outfits, and like I said before, they never seem to one-sided. These are some of my more favoured skins for quite a while, except the Raiden model, and with the exception of the reborn skins these are well worth a download :) Unfortunately there are no new sounds in this pack - You\'ll have to download the seperate files to get them included, which is a shame, and added to the lack of team and bot support this becomes a bit of a downer, but never mind, I harly notice the sounds anyway lol :D New Sounds: No Team Support: No Bot Support: No ~Szico VII~




Iron Man | 15.62 MB

there:;43097 I would suggest, however, before you go randomly downloading that you take a look at this masterpiece. During my life, I never really quite got my hands on many comic books(if any), but I will say that Iron Man was definitely one that peaked my interest as a comic book character. Mechanical heroes make Averus grin in creepy ways O_,o. This skin is so entirely crisp, delicious, and not to mention accurate, that it\'s hard to even resist in a screenshot. The skin, the shader, all of it blends together in a malevolent brew of total godlyness that I almost feel unworthy for handling this skin. Currently, there are two versions of the skin, one being Iron Man with the face plate on, and the other revealing Tony Stark\'s stark face. There are two seperate soundsets, so Tony and Iron Man sound slightly different, as was to be hoped. I will say that Iron Man\'s taunt sorta threw me off, as it was: \"Ready to die, kid?\" When Iron Man would say that, I wouldn\'t know, but the idea of him punching small children and stealing their candy sounds delightful! =_,= In terms of extras, you\'re in for quite a treat, really. This version of Iron Man comes with a modified variant of Teh_Blizzy\'s \"Blades of Fury\" mod AND Tobe\'s Orange Super Force Beam, so you can blast your opponents with malevolent Iron blastery juice of darkness. Overall, you cannot afford to lose with this powerhouse of a skin =_=. I will say that if you don\'t like the idea of your lightning being changed to orangish/yellow, I would stay away from the force beam. I would also recommend being wary of other efx mods. Otherwise, a brutally malevolent skin. I would highly recommend submitting bandwidth, and punching the nearest child and stealing their candy as fast as you can =_= I should develop a bandwidth song...

Tantive IV - Rebel Blockade Runner v1 | 6.48 MB

Revenge of the Sith. Due to this map being a movie location not only is this map going to be popular, but it also must have been very difficult to make! The thing about maps made after movie locations is that unlike an ordinary map, where you create what you see in your head, a movie map has to look like the place it is meant to represent. Not only that but you must also get the scale of things correct to achieve that. For instance, you need to make sure that the things in your map, like the height of the ceilings, the size of the doorways and such is to a similar scale as what is portrayed in the film. It wouldn’t look right if the doorways in the map were twice as big as they looked in the movie would they? I am glad to say that Sssid has done a brilliant job of getting the scale and proportions in this map just right, not only that but the custom textures look superb too and make this feel like a really authentic portrayal of the Tantive IV! Now as for the size of it; it’s probably a medium to large sized map, but with all the winding corridors it makes it seem much bigger! Luckily in the conference room though (the one where Bail, Yoda and Obi are at the end of Episode 3) there is a map on the wall, which should give you a good idea of the layout. I hear Sssid’s been working on this map for a long time, well he has certainly produced a great map! Like I said before, he has got the proportions just right, the corridors and rooms really look like those out of the movies. One very clever thing I liked was that the white doors appear to have been made out of a base JKA texture from the Desert (Tatooine type textures) folder. There is plenty to explore in this map, and I would imagine with all these corridors that it would make a great guns FFA map. The spaces in this map are a little bit small for dueling though I would say. You could still have a duel in here, but you wouldn’t be able to jump much! All in all I think this is a very impressive representation of the Tantive IV. Its all here, from that famous corridor where the Stormtroopers break in, in the original Star Wars film, to the conference room featured near the end of Episode 3. The use of curves, and the way the textures have been used looks great, so well done there mate! :D There are one or two things that could be improved upon perhaps though. The biggest bit would be the Star Destroyer outside of the Bridge windows. Its rotated at a bit of an odd angle, which skews some of the textures on it so that they look out of place in parts. I must admit it does look good at that angle – it looks like its coming right at you! – but maybe a bit of a simpler angle would be good so that it doesn’t skew the textures too much. Also in the more grubby engineering type areas (such as where Princess Leia puts the hologram in R2D2) the base JKA textures used there look a bit out of place (I think there’s a Bespin door texture in there somewhere :S). However, the way they are used still looks good :) One other thing would be that on some of the textures inside the ship, there is a small grey control panel type texture that has been placed ontop of the white wall texture. This small grey control panel looks very pixelated and thus stands out against the very nice, clean, crisp white walls. This is only a very very small thing, but I’m a perfectionist! ;) Apart from that a brilliant professional quality map here! Nice work mate! ***NOTE*** By the way, apparently Sssid has dropped another can of Coke somewhere in this map (surely there must be bins somewhere on the Tantive IV! :P ). See if you can find it!

Haps Sand Trooper | 2.45 MB

main difference been the beautifully detailed backpack of the storm troops back, the detail is wonderful. The armour has also been touched up to give it the appearance of it been sand stained, and ands some authenticity to the model.

TFU Backhand Saber Animations | 25.17 MB

care! :) Sylver has swapped around a good deal of animation strings to match the backhanded lightsaber stance that Galak uses from TFU. He has also done this with single-player and MP bots in mind, and has also changed the animations for every other NPC that comes with the game. Thats a fair amount of work to his credit, but it didn't come out quite as polished as you might like. There are several clipping issues with the models, and don't expect to watch the SP cut scenes with any sort of sobriety (hey, I thought it looked funny okay?) Overall, a decent attempt at the backhand stance. Not the best I have seen so far, but good if you like seeing all the NPC's use that stance. -Sared Overall rating: three out of ten biscuits.

The Last Hope Mod (v0.1.1) | 3.21 MB

closer look at this mod. One of the features that many people have requested in a mod would be the ability to scale your model. You\'ll find that in this mod. I can\'t say that I\'m all that familiar with NPC\'s and their behaviour, but the new commands in this mod for NPC\'s sounds very cool. You can make the NPC\'s follow you, attack wherever you\'re looking or have the NPC\'s defend your position. The author plans to add a command that will allow you to toggle dual weapons, but it\'s not in this version. Some other features include RGB sabers, several classes such as Shadowtrooper, Boba Fett and Emperor (though that one still has some bugs, according to the author). Vehicle weapons have apparently been fixed and vehicles limit has been set to 64. There are a bunch of other features - too many to list. Try this mod out and be sure to give feedback to the author. I\'m sure there will be many updates to improve upon this mod by SuperDindon. [/quote] Well, SuperDindon has updated this mod and now you can wield two weapons at one time! Probably something many of you have been looking forward to. The other features that seemed to be a big hit with everyone are still there, and improved upon. If you notice any bugs, feel free to post here to let the author know, but don\'t just say \"OMG fix teh bugs!\" Let the author know exactly what kind of bug it is, how you found it, etc. Oh, and be sure to read all of the documentation included with the mod before running to the author and telling him his mod sucks and that it doesn\'t work. :) I\'m sure we\'ll see more updates to this mod. ~AmosMagee




Scerendo\'s Shadow Trooper | 6.66 MB

are the people who deserve praise, rather than the people who pump out flawed work but get away with it because of the \"fanboy\" instinct. One word popped into my head when I saw this skin: \"nanotechnology\". That\'s precisely the effect you get, too. It looks good, even without dynamic glow. Oh, yeah, for those not aware of the visual nanotechnology effects, there\'s backstory to it, but that\'s hardly relevant. Bottom line is, when a nanotech-enhanced human is hurt (usually by gunshots), a pulsating energy pattern appears over them. This effect has been used in many games, but the closest to this skin\'s style is the nanotechnology in [i]Red Faction II[/i]. I\'m not sure the author was aiming for a nanotech look, but that\'s certainly the closest description I can think of. But, that\'s enough backstory. Let\'s look at the skin. The basic skin is a complete reskin of the Shadowtrooper. Everything has changed, although you can barely make out the original skin\'s shape. The design is now more of a space-age style than the plastic Star Wars junk Raven Software threw out. The only thing that really remains is the gem, but even that looks much classier, as well as the unit holding it. The worn-down effect looks great. I can\'t really describe much of it, there aren\'t enough words in my vocab. I am, however, reminded of Nod Soldiers, from [i]C&C Tiberian Sun[/i] and [i]C&C Renegade[/i]. But now we get on to the best bit. The nano effect. Available in blue, red, green and cyan, the effect consists of a pattern of glowing lines and grids across the skin. Each color is perfectly matched to it\'s appropriate saber blade color, although orange and purple are missing. I noticed one error with the glows, which I hope has been fixed - a few parts on the cyan version is still red. The Jedi Academy version also includes .npc files, allowing you to overwrite the default Shadowtrooper. I don\'t need to say much else. Quality tends to speak for itself, and this file proves it to be true. Scerendo has taken the time to go over the project, hasn\'t rushed it, and made sure every angle was covered. The fact that it looks good is unrelated to the quality factor, but it\'s still a great bonus. It\'s very rare that anything created in the typically weak and outdated Q3 engine can sincerely impress me, but this has. It\'s definitely one for the collection if you\'re a fan of the futuristic style. ~ Kouen [b]Bot Support:[/b] Yes [b]Team Support:[/b] Yes [b]New Sounds:[/b] No [b]NPC Support:[/b] Yes




Makermod Client Plugin | 405.17 KB

I got bored playing by myself after a while. Anyways, this is a very nifty plugin for those of you who want to try out makermod and don’t feel like learning all the commands. Okay. So I start up maker mod, and I wonder how to use the plugin. I should’ve read the readme. Anyways, read the readme, set up your controls, and start having fun. However, it may take a little bit of understanding for some people to use this. But all in all, this was an enjoyable mod to review, and is made to help out people new to makermod! In addition to aiding you in building stuff, this mod will also aid in the administrative part of makermod. So if you wanted to try out makermod but got confused, then download this! ~Zach Note, to use this, you must be on a server with makermod on it, or be running the mod itself, ~I noted in the review that I crashed while using Korriban models. This is not the case for everyone. Many people have had the models work just fine.




Coruscant Heights 2 | 20.09 MB

If you've ever played JK2 Nar Shaddaa Streets. (My favourite level of the game) You'll instantly recognise the style used in this map. It actually looks like the author has directly used some of Raven's original map for jk2 to create this one, which whilst not that challenging, still looks good ;) And of course now it's Coruscant-texture themed, and not Nar Shaddaa. Of course, it does have a few small flaws, as well as a few not-so-small ones. Most obviously, especially from some of the screenshots, is the missing floor texture. Now, if this has been on a crate or something, I'd probably have overlooked it. However, when the entire floor of one half of the map is an ugly grey and white texture, you tend to notice it ;) Furthermore, the framerate can get a bit choppy sometimes, although it isn't in general bad. However, I can tell without looking at the included .map file that the author has failed to caulk many of his hidden surfaces, which immediately lets me know the framerate could have been so much better! :( I'm actually more amazed at the scope of this level, rather than the design. You'll need a Force 3 jump to get around most places, although there are a few trams and lifts which move you around as well. However, unless you're a full-force jump user, you won't be able to get around very easily. Oh yes, the doors. Very annoying. The author has forgotten to put a 'wait' key on his door triggers, and consequently when you press 'use', the door opens and closes too rapidly for you to get through. Overall though, the gameplay of this map is great - plenty of height variation and enough room for well over 32 players. I especially liked the fog-esque effect around the building bases. That just looks so good compared to a black drop-off that I will tip my hat to the author. Very nice. :D In conclusion, this map is very inspiring, although technically and visually there are some rather unpleasant flaws which absolutely MUST be fixed because as they are they're ruining the map. Oh yes, and there is no bot support, so I'm afraid the author gets a big black cross put by his name ;) Next time get them in there for Pete’s sake![/quote] So, here's the second version of the map, which, looking at the readme, has fixed a fair few bugs and other problems. Most importantly, is the texture problem which proved to be a fatal flaw in the original. As you'd expect, that issue has been fixed for this new version, so we can all get on and be happy. The map is essentially the same as the first version, there are no major design changes, although one of the cool cable cars has been removed, and there's a few new additions, including sounds for the doors and wait values. There were a couple of new errors I discovered this time around, and a few new things to comment on which I didn't notice originally. Firstly, there are now some caulked surfaces which that player can actually see, so what you get is basically an invisible wall in a few places (See screenshot 6). Secondly, is the texture usage. Now, I know that the author has prevented his textures from looking repetitive by breaking them up using other textures, but I think going a step further could give another visual boost to the map. Looking sideward, the textures are fine, but looking up and down, they repeat. Furthermore, when textures which are the same sit next to each other, and some of the windows have glows, it looks weird when the set of windows directly next to them has exactly the same set of glows. The new support sections and walkways are well created, but you need to create the flares properly, because, at the moment, they're 2D. Okay, all flares are 2D, but they're supposed to look 3D. This is done by making a light and giving it the following keys and values: [quote] key: _flareshader value: textures/flares/nameofflareshader[/quote] Furthermore, when looking into the crevices between some buildings, you can see half-cut window textures which really don’t fit. (Screenshot 2)There's also a small issue on that broken pane of glass in the building near the top of the level, where the author has not caulked the gaps where 2 pieces of glass meet, so it looks a little weird. Also, were those cars there before? I mean at the top of the level. They just don't look as good there as they do at the bottom. There are also a few uncaulked surfaces on the buildings, but I'm still loving that fog ;) Conclusion? It's a very nice map, which seems to capture the physique and scope of a cityscape very well. Gameplay-wise, it's also on a very level, with plenty of height variation and room to breathe. In order make this a brilliant map though, you'll need to really push your design ambition - don't just have square buildings, give them more detail, create some focal points and really bring it to life. Its a great design, but it can get quite monotonous after staring at it for a while. Make a focal point, and bring some more lighting contrasts into play to spice areas up a bit - some shadowed allies e.t.c. Overall though, a definite improvement over the first. Although, you're still getting slapped wrists for not including bot support. Honestly, it is such a good extra to have, and isn't particularly hard to implement! Oh yea, and is the inclusion of that custom skybox really a necessary addition - you can only see the top of it in game and there's plenty of JK3 skyboxes which would have worked just as well, if not better.

PadawanVM | 716.92 KB

first, kinda had me worried. Already I\'m tired of seeing the Rosh reskins, but these aren\'t just any Rosh reskins. The first padawan, is Anakin, with dark robes and light hair. Vermill follows Anakin with the same skin tone, but, correct me if I\'m wrong, he has pink hair and khaki robes. Not sure if that\'s a color combination I like. Oh well. Chalactan ... not sure who this is, but the face is ... interesting. His clothes don\'t differ even slightly from the Vermill skin, but he looks great anyway. Again, no change in the robes for this next padawan, who is so distinctly Chiss. :) Next up we have my favorite skin of this pack, that of Dante. Love the color choice for the robes here. Windu is in the classic padawan dress here and the look suits him. Finally there\'s the sith Anakin padawan, looking quite dark and evil in his all black. Mars certainly gave you variety with this skin pack, but not much else. There\'s no team support for any of these skins, but that would\'ve been a lot of skins to add, huh? I guess I shouldn\'t complain. :) No new sounds were added either. But bot support is included and Mars reminds us in the readme that these guys are padawans. Their skill level is that of padawans. :) Except for Anakin. He\'s like, special and stuff. Good job, Mars - can\'t wait to see what else you have in store for us! :D Bot Support: Yes Team Colors: No New Sounds: No ~AmosMagee




Better Saber Clash Effect | 30.25 KB

maybe if there was a mod which had all different kinds of saber clash effects that would be cool…unless there is already. :S Anyways, I couldn’t see much difference with this mod, to be honest the saber clash effects go so quickly after you have actually clashed the sabers, that I couldn’t tell the difference. I took tons of screen shots to try and see, but I could never get one at just the right time to see the sabers clash. :( From the picture of the flare in the .pk3 though, this does look pretty cool, so if you fancy having a change from the normal saber clash effect, why not give this a download? ;) ~Nozyspy~




Aratech 74-Z Speeder Bike | 652.69 KB

JKR solely in mind, I get the feeling that Duncan_10158 was somewhat inspired by JKR. Duncan_10158 is best known for his Sebulba, Hutt and Gamorrean models. Now that JKA is here, it seems he took a small detour from the character models and focused on this, Aratech 74-Z. Much like the swoop, this vehicle can be spawned by players in the game or added to maps by mappers. Duncan_10158 gives anyone permission to use his model in their maps, as long as he\'s given proper credit in the readme, of course. :) ~AmosMagee




Hailfire Droid | 828.47 KB

thought they were a bit bigger than this. But I could be wrong. In any case, the model looks great. I did have a little trouble getting into the vehicle at first, but finally was able to jump in. The hailfire\'s animation looks great as it rolls around. Quite a smooth ride. :) The author mentioned in the readme that it was made specifically for Siege maps. That could add quite an interesting element to the game. They\'re much more maneuverable than AT-ST\'s and are lower to the ground and they shoot rockets! And I love rockets! So yay! ~AmosMagee




Blood Mod | 40.94 KB

The blood sometimes splashes onto walls and floors but you have to be very close to the walls, and I mean VERY close, or it will just vanish. As for floor blood, I dunno It just seemed to be random whether it stayed or not. Now, while this is a good idea, and the blood once on the walls/floor looks great, the actual animation when it\'s coming out of the body isn\'t that special. You hit them, and a load of small red spheres, globs of blood come flying out of the body - sounds nice but looks odd. It\'s a nice download despite this, because it looks cool to see your enemies splattered with blood, and generally increases the carnage ingame! Who wouldn\'t want that? :) ~Szico VII~




New Saber Colors | 15.98 KB

get the current saber colors and modify the RGB components to alter the color, that's all there is to it. I must admit these colors do look neon, which is nice. I like the idea of the sabers being something "strange" and neon glow sticks works for me. Like I said though, this is a very simple mod so don't expect much apart from neon colors! -WadeV1589-




Mario Bros. | 2.88 MB

So I was excited to see that finally there was a model made of Mario and Luigi! They are a bit big ... y\'know, like, the way Yoda was. But if you just use a mod to scale \'em down a bit, it\'d probably work a little better. Of course they\'re incredibly cartoony ... c\'mon ... it\'s Mario and Luigi! I think they look great. I really only have one complaint. The taunt. The other sounds are great. Especially the deaths. Those are perfect. But the taunt is just not what I expected. What did I expect Mario to say? I have no idea. But I guess the one thing that came to mind was like, y\'know that Mario song? The one that annoys Chrono when Kaoran plays it ... hehe.

Mortal Kombat Scorpion | 635.85 KB

played Mortal Kombat in years. My mom always stood fast by the 'no blood' rule when I was a kid... :/ Anyway, after searching several pages of google image search I discovered that the broken yellow pattern [i]was[/i] accurate, depending on which pictures you look at. For a cultist reskin, I really like it. For being this author's first skin, it's quite good. I'm assuming he has some previous photoshopping experience, as many of the textures look drastically different. I'm not a Moral Kombat fan, per se, but Scorpion and Sub Zero were a couple of my favorite characters (I was young, what can I say?) so it does bring back some fond memories of being naughty and playing MK at other peoples' houses when I wasn't supposed to. We're even lucky enough to get the "Get over her
