This is a mod made for people who liked JKO's campaign but still want to be able to use all of their skins from JKA. This mod's focus is on porting Outcast's missions to the newer engine while trying to keep gameplay balanced and letting you use whatever mods you want from JKA. All with the storyline kept as intact as possible with the main focus being on simply getting the missions to work as intended. Some other bonuses included - such as scripts, new music and a new ui for single player.

For the next release, I'm going to release it as another full version because I had to remove some things from the previous version and it's kind of a pain looking for the data to include. Besides, I'm not getting alot of downloads from the last version so I predict fewer downloads of a patch.

So far I've made a few glitch fixes and not a whole lot else. I was thinking of things to do and I thought of adding new skins to character creation, adding some new sabers, making new skins for the menu etc. If anybody has any ideas, take a shot and I'll almost definitely be able to reply (not getting alot of pms about my mod currently).

I've also looked into decompiling .bsps (compiled maps) so I could fix some annoying glitches (like the yavin skating glitch). I was almost sure it was illegal, but apparently, since Raven's maps are in the assets .pk3s, it is legal to decompile and edit them. It doesn't break the EULA to edit any of the data in the base folder, as long as you don't profit (or cause Lucas Arts a loss of profits). So, I'm thinking I might try doing that, but I would like some opinions first and enough people supporting the mod first.
(We edit Raven's skins anyway, so whats the harm?)

Cool mod, but i have encountered one problem i can't ignore, and that is my objectives do not appear in the datapad menu. Is it something I'm doing, or does it need to be updated?

I don't use the objectives list personally, so I didn't think it would be worth the time to fix. If I make another release I'll try to fix it.

Hi, i have a small question for you. Have you ever considered, to change the NPC's dismemberment probabilites from default, to 100 ?? I mean i really dont know why you didnt changed it yet, its like the primary thing which most moders do, when editing the NPC.txt files :D I know that most people like to punch in the "g_sabermorerealistic" code, but there is some amount of players which, prefers to use the default saber damage system. So could you please change the Dismemberment Probabilities to 100 in the next version already, hmm??? I mean it wont hurt anybody, if someone wont like he can just type in the code, or turn it OFF in the menu.(doubt it)

I feel that doing that makes saber battles much easier (faster kill times) so I didn't bother. Feel free to do it yourself though, just ask if you need any tools.

You have my word, that there wont be any "Faster Kill Times" when changing the "DismemberProbabiliteis" values, from default, to 100%, becouse these values describe how often head,hands,legs,arms,waist are cut off, when you developing the critical\last hit to the enemy, with your lightsaber, and also the dismeberment happens only when enemy is dead, not when he is still alive, so there wont be any "fast kills" or NPC's running without hands, arms. It has also nothing to do with Lightsaber damage system, and as i said before, it is just cosmetics (but cool enough to add), so the game wont get easier all of the sudden. Just check it out for yourself how it works, then you will see what i mean. Change the Reborn "DismemberProbabilites" values to 100, spawn him in a game, and observe :D

I would do it myself, becouse it is easy enough, and i already done that once for JA, but it would be better if author would done this, becouse this mod is still in development, so it would be needed to change it every time when the latest relase of your mod is out :(, and come on people love the Dismemberment in JA, nobody would get mad about it, and even if he does, then he can turn it off in the Options menu, becouse it is still the default Dismemberment system only a little bit enhanced :D

So PLEASE, make up your mind positive about this :D

I find that you can get insta-kills on most enemies if their dismemberment probability is set to max in their npc files. Thats what I saw, and it was a long time ago so I could be wrong. Either way, I may not make an update for some time and I'd prefer to include that as a separate .pk3.

I made this mod mainly so that you can use smaller mods for academy on Outcast. Feel free to add any race mods, npc mods, etc. I want my mod to leave the core of academy's gameplay untouched with Outcast's missions. Everything else is optional.

Hello everyone! Just thought I'd post that I've started screwing around with the source code, I might just have new stuff for the mod in the future. Nothing solid yet.

Also, I'm wondering about the legal implications of releasing the source code? Could I release all the maps for JO sp for people who don't have JO and get away with it =)?

No, only the code. You've already committed numerous licensing infringements by including the music.

When I played the mission where you rescue prisoners, it was working fine then when I met the crab things one of them bit me in half and swallowed me whole(I don't even know how I would make this up).
Is this a bug or are the crabs more vicious than I remember?
