A spin-off of Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast, Jedi Academy allows players to create their own Jedi, train in the Academy under the tutelage of Luke Skywalker and Kyle Katarn and ultimately choose to follow the path of the Light Side or the Dark Side of the Force. The game is powered by the same version of the Quake III engine used in its predecessor, Jedi Outcast, containing modifications to the Quake code to give a third-person view and new lightsaber effects (Jedi Knight II had these 3rd person effects as well). Players have the ability to construct their own lightsaber by choosing the hilt style and blade color. After completing certain objectives, new saber styles become available.

Changes From Jedi Outcast to Jedi Academy

  • Your character, Jaden, can be male or female and is customizable. For example, you can choose from several lightsaber colors and hilt types as well as from several species:
  • - Twi'lek female
    - Kel Dor male
    - Human male or female
    - Zabrak female
    - Rodian male

  • New Force Powers in single player; Force Absorb, Force Protect, Force Drain, and Force Rage (these powers were available in Jedi Outcast's multiplayer game, but not in the single player game.)
  • New lightsaber combat moves including katas, wall gripping, and acrobatics.
  • Four new weapons: DL-44 Blaster Pistol and Stouker Concussion Rifle, Saberstaff (double bladed lightsaber) and dual sabers. A variety of saber hilts are also available.
  • New vehicles and vehicle-based levels, including Tauntauns and speeder bikes.
  • Power Duel mode: Players join as an individual or as a team of two. The individual has more health and Force power in exchange for being at a disadvantage in numbers.
  • Siege Mode: Players work to complete goals and stop the other team from completing their goals.
  • AI NPCs (not just bots, as before) in Multiplayer.
  • Decreased limitations on world objects in Multiplayer, enhancing modding possibilities (and making coop play theoretically possible).
  • Various bugfixes, gameplay tweaks and subtle changes (especially to the Multiplayer component).
  • Enhanced rendering of the Quake III: Team Arena engine, including dynamic glow features.
  • Removal of the First Person Lightsaber view that can be found in both Jedi Knight and Jedi Outcast.

About Jedi Academy - Knights of the Old Republic 2 Duels with 2 comments by JamyzGenius on Dec 21st, 2014

Hello there!

This will be, probably, the last update of the year. In this one, I will show what I have so far on the mod and what's left to do.

A VIDEO

Today I released a really fast preview of how's the mod going on. I didn't want to show all the stuff right now. I would prefer to you guys to play it, but I think I can show a little more soon.
The trailer features almost all the completed missions, not all. Some were left off, but it only shows the 1% of the cinematics. Just to see what the mod is, and how it looks when playing.

PLANETS:

PERAGUS

MISSION IN PROGRESS
MAP FINISHED

EBON HAWK

SCRIPTS AND MISSION COMPLETED.
THE MAP IS COMPLETED, BUT CAN CHANGE.

KORRIBAN

ALL MISSIONS COMPLETED, THEY JUST NEED SOME SMALL DETAILS.
MAP FINISHED

NAR SHADDAA

MISSION COMPLETED (SCRIPTS) - THE SKIN OR MODEL IS A PROBLEM, THERE IS NO ZEZ KAI ELL MODEL.
MAP FINISHED

DANTOOINE

MISSION IN PROGRESS (SCRIPTS) - THE SKIN OR MODEL IS A PROBLEM, THERE IS NO JEDI MODEL.
MAP FINISHED

DXUN

SECOND ONE IS COMPLETED. MANDALORIAN OUTPOST IS STILL IN PROGRESS (SCRIPTS)

ONDERON

MISSION COMPLETED (SCRIPTS) - THE SKIN OR MODEL IS A PROBLEM, THERE IS NO KAVAR MODEL.
MAP FINISHED

TELOS

THREE COMPLETED, MISSIONS AND MAPS. BUT THE CITADEL STATION UNDER ATTACK IS STILL IN PROGRESS AND WILL BE DIFFERENT FROM THE ORIGINAL PICTURES. MAINLY WITH RED LIGHTS AROUND THE AREA AND TONS OF ENEMIES INSTEAD OF CITIZENS.
3 MAPS FINISHED. 1 NEEDS WORK

MALACHOR

MISSIONS COMPLETED (SCRIPTS)
MAPS FINISHED

That's it guys, almost all the core missions are completed by now. Probably I will add more, probably I will delete some, depend of the capabilities of JKA. Also, I deleted the extra Ebon Hawk missions because those were really unnecessary at the moment.

Thank you so much for your patience and support. The core mod is almost finished, probably ready for around this months.

Best Regards!
Happy Holidays and Good Life for the next year.
The best for yah!

Hey, I rescripted Jedi Outcast so you can play its missions on Academy, I was wondering if it would be ok to release those scripts. I'm afraid Lucas Arts might not like that.

Go ahead and release the scripts both games can be modded so I don't see what would be wrong with it.

Hi just wanted to let all those Battlefront fans know that there is a page on facebook with 5,500 likes called "Who Else Wants Star Wars Battlefront III ?" The aim is to get Lucasarts to notice what fans actually want. If you wish to show your support simply log onto Facebook and go to the page and click Like.

Gaming websites have taken notice and even written articles so Lucasarts can see and every like that the page gets is another step towards Battlefront 3 being developed.

Thanks :)

I know but Lucasarts can hand over or create a new Battlefront 3 with a different gaming company. If they see we want it and they can gain enough from making it then i am sure they will see sense.
