Mysteries of the Sith is set in a period five years beyond Kyle Katarn’s dramatic victory over the seven Dark Jedi he battled in Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II. Kyle’s reputation as a skilled Jedi Knight has attracted Mara Jade, one-time assassin, smuggler and Jedi Knight-in-training under Emperor Palpatine. Hoping to complete her apprenticeship, Mara joins Kyle on the remote outpost of Altyr 5. Kyle soon discloses that he has discovered information about a previously unknown Sith temple and must travel to it to investigate the mysterious forces it holds.

This project aims to re-create the classic Lucasarts Game 'Star Wars: Jedi Knight - Mysteries of the Sith' in Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy. All of the Maps, Levels, Characters, NPC's, Weapons etc will all be done as accurate as possible from the original game released in 1998.

Players will battle new creatures throughout Mysteries of the Sith, including a the rancor. Other creatures range from assassin and torture droids to pirate raiders and Sith undead. The weaponry in Mysteries of the Sith includes a carbonite gun, designed to immobilize enemies with freeze pellets; a BlasTech BH-35 electroscope, for long-range engagements; a repeating blaster cannon, for heavy firepower; seeker rail detonators; flash bombs; remote sequencers; and a BlasTech DL-44 heavy blaster pistol. Mysteries of the Sith Mod will feature 13 immersive singleplayer levels.

Level List:

  1. New Republic Base on Altyr 5
  2. Asteroid Crust
  3. Asteroid Core
  4. Self-Destruct and Escape
  5. Ka'pa the Hutt's Palace
  6. Katraasii Space Port
  7. Katraasii Space Port, Part B

  9. New Republic ShipOrbiting Ship Yards
  10. Kaerobani's Base

So its been forever and a day since we have posted anything so heres the plan. As of right now we are in the works to try to get the first 3 levels out and then thats it. While we have made some pretty good progress with textures, characters etc, there really isnt much time to work on a hobby project. With that being said, once we get to where we feel its good to be released we will release the demo and all the assests that we have put together thus far. It will be open for the publics use and as long as credit is given do with it what you will. Maybe someone will continue on, and maybe not. Who knows, but there is no time line and assuming we can't get a working 3 level demo then we will just release what we have.

I was wondering what you are doing with level 9. Because originally in JK:MOTS The ship was a Corellian Corvette, but the interior didn't match either the size or the structure of such a ship. It was way too big on the interior. So yeah what are doing for level 9? will you be changing it?

Plus it was an interdictor that pulled them outta hyperspace and yet the pirates docked using a Nebulon-B frigate.

It'll be quite some time before we get to level nine. Months, at the very least(if not much much longer), we have way too few mappers to be working on all those levels, and are going for a level 1-4 release first, if not an even smaller demo before that.

Anyway, on answering that question: I can say that we're really trying to 'make sense' of the story, if some elements don't fit, we adjust the rest to that, so if it's a corvette and the interior doesn't match, we'll change one of the two, probably the interior.
I'm not sure about the interdictor from the top of my head, I'd have to watch the cutscene again when I have time.

Although the mod was started in 2006, we only started in September/October 2008, almost from scratch, save for two models, one or two menu screens, and a hud :P

Feel free to register at our forums if you have any questions or suggestions, though.

well, not still, but rather 'again' as the original mod team left it hugely incomplete.

Feel free to visit our forums and offer help though(if you want to)
