Gunslinger's Academy is a Jedi Academy total conversion which aims to bring gun combat to Jedi Academy Multiplayer. Features include new weapons, achievements, killstreak rewards, a new combat system, several new maps, and multiple new gametypes.
Yeah, we've been neglecting to do these. Ever since 2.4.0, we've been in development frenzy, constantly adding tons of new stuff to the game. But today, we're bringing you an update chock-full of new developments!
So how's everybody doing? Quite good I assume? Well if you're not, then be prepared to feel better with a new and exciting Friday Update February 3rd, 2012
Yeah, we've been neglecting to do these. Ever since 2.4.0, we've been in development frenzy, constantly adding tons of new stuff to the game. The first, and probably most exciting thing is with our new announcement:
(subject to change)
Airstrikes and Helicopters!
Airstrikes come in many different flavors, each unique to a specific map. You can carpet bomb or even disperse massive amounts of toxic gas over an area, all controllable via a designator grenade. Usually they're rewarded after 5 kills, but on certain maps like Shipment, you might get them after 8 kills or so.
Helicopters also come in many different varieties. There's attack helicopters that circle the map, shooting their guns at targets. There's also ones that fly in a strafing run, and more still that shoot heat-seeking missiles or even have player-controlled guns. Usually you get these after 10 kills, perhaps. It depends on the map, along with other killstreaks.
Our killstreak system utilizes a series of tab-delimited text files (those of you who mod Diablo II should be familiar with these!) to determine on which maps you get these killstreaks. You can also customize how many kills are required to get the rewards. It's so easy to customize that a server admin could do it (with their own custom files)
Barn is a familiar favorite from Soldier of Fortune II. Some might say that it's a small map, however the dense amount of cover makes up for this as a sort of size increase.
3: Recon Team
5: Portable Gatling Gun
7: Sentry Gun
In addition, we have revitalized the Dynamic Music System. As a result, shooting players or triggering an explosion will cause the music to change to reflect a more upbeat atmosphere. This was originally in OJP Basic (which is what we are based off of), however we have corrected it to be fully functional and added our own set of logic to it.
By the way, we've paid attention. Our mod is increasing in popularity, with our watcher count reaching 90 members. Thank you for watching our mod! As always, we recommend you to visit our forums for up-to-date news and additional commentary and developer chat. In case you are new to what this mod is made of, allow us to show you:
Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like Gunslinger's Academy. We love games like Star Wars: Jedi Academy that have opened themselves up to modding. Because of communities like Workshop, Nexus, Curse, RTSL, GameBanana and Mod DB, more games support modding today than ever before.
Let's celebrate modding
As mods play a bigger role in the future of gaming, we believe it is important to recognize the effort the teams behind the work put in, giving us countless hours of enjoyment while asking nothing in return. We have the power to change our games and that needs to be celebrated to ensure it remains a big part of PC gaming's future.
It all started
In 2015, when the paid modding dispute left many gamers and modders worried about the direction the industry is headed. Things have since settled down, but we believe it is important to continue this small tradition to show we are not alone in our love for mods, and the open platforms that embrace them.
Mod Appreciation Week
Nothing is more motivating than knowing something you've built is being enjoyed by others. So this week if there is a mod you love on Mod DB (or anywhere else), make the effort to shout out to them, mention and link their mod in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post with the hashtag #modlove2016 (or click the icons above for a pre-built post).
