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.
This week has been a slower-than-usual one. Fortunately, we have some news for you guys this week that may entice you. If you wish to get easy access to future updates and/or improve the team's morale, click on "Track this Mod" over on the right. You can also help out by posting on our forums, or even better, by lending a hand in the effort.
Not too much in the way of code and graphics got done for this week, I apologize. However, I have gotten word back from Silverfang. Seems he got word from Pande, one of the resident skinners over at Jedi Knight Galaxies. Pande has offered to skin a few weapons for us, starting with the M16.
The team decided it was best to not change connection screen based on gametype, but rather based on how far you are in to connection. It also changes the display to "Solo Game" appropriately.
In addition to this, a bug got fixed that caused many weapon icons to display missing textures if they were out of ammo. This has been corrected, and now all weapons have uniform out of ammo icons.
To end this week's news update, I saved the best for last. j3rk, our old friend in the mapping and modding world, has announced that he has completed a port of "Shipment" to Gunslinger's Academy, which we were pretty impressed with. Media will be provided as soon as some touching up is done to the map.
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).
