I am short on time right now. Not much has been done since my last update. As some of you might know, I recently got to work with Kor-SW.
To skip to the point, I decided to pull out from my own project and pass it on to Kor-SW . We talked and he has decided to work on his own star wars mod, using mine as a base; although any official announcement or release will come in it's own time; he will not be using any assets from JKA but will use his own or those donated by other users if they so chose to. The reason for giving up on our JKJA models is that even though it (the game) is now open source, you still need to buy it to be able to play it, that alone means you can't just take things from it like they are free. Our mod in this state (with JKJA assets) can still get removed if some artist complains. I was foolish enough not to think about it before. Thankfully, it isn't to late to do the right thing and replace the lost.
This may seem like a big deal, and it is, but it's for the best. I have provided Kor-SW with my own base 3ds max files and believe he can eventually bring a star wars mod to fruition.

This had been my plan from the beginning, to leave this mod on to Kor ever since I reactivated it, I think he has the necessary will and knowledge to continue with working on it. I lost my will and I don't really have the time for it, I wanted to give back something to the community so I reactivated it. What I did not plan, was to replace the stuff from JKJA. But as said, it is better that way.
We also won't be uploading stuff we made so far, so please spare us your request for giving you something that can only jeopardize our positions as modders and would place us in even more unpleasant position here on ModDB. Be patient and understanding.
I am no longer working on this modification, if you have any questions concerning the mod and so on, you should contact Kor-SW.
Kor has my full support and I sure hope so he will have yours to. Be fair and do not bother him with unnecessary questions and requests. I hope I clarified everything, but if there are any questions feel free to ask in the comments.

Your concern about using JKA assets is entirely understandable, but I hope that's not the main reason why you've stopped working on this.
I think a lot of modders are growing more and more concerned about using assets from older video games and they shouldn't be.
You aren't making money off of this, your doing what you enjoy as a hobby and if you choose to use those models while crediting their creators for their hard work, then that is not something that should be scrutinized. There are thousands of mods that use models from other games, and there are extremely talented modders who can build their own from scratch. The one time I've ever seen a mod get pulled from Moddb by request was this WH40k mod for Men of War, and that's because they were using a copyrighted title. Not because they were using game models.

JKJA is not the reason for me pulling out, as stated above, I have other things to do and I would rather see this mod to come alive one day by someone that will actually have time and will to finish it, that is why I gave my project to Kor-SW.
As for JKJA assets, I do not worry to much, but it would be stupid to work on something for so long and than watch it being taken down due to copyright. So by going with the custom content that problem can be easily evaded. I saw some of models Kor has made and I am sure you all will be satisfied with the progress he made on this.
