A nice little mod that aims at bringing the life inside a Republic Assault Cruiser (RAC), or Venator, to life from the Clone Wars in a fight to the death over the outer-rim planet of Sarapin. Sarapin, a vital planet to the survival of the Republic, provides 80% of the core worlds power. This makes it a strategic target for the Confederacy of Independent Systems. The Republic utilizes the planets volcanoes and lava flows for its power. In order to protect such a valuable prize, surrounding the system is numerous defensive stations and platforms. Numerous Republic ships were also sent to guard the system. Sarapins defenses was said to be near impenetrable. CIS leader Sev'rance Tann was tasked with the crippling of the planet and its systems. In order for Tann to get to the surface, her forces had to get passed the defense grid and ships orbiting the planet. This is where the CIS's challenge lies. And where the surprise attack began.

Here we have a Republic Assault Ship that will be seen in the skybox, and possibly a ship you can fly around with. As well as the three main characters for the scenario: Sev'rance Tann, Echuu Shen-Jon and his Padawan Naat Reath.

First we have the Acclamator or Republic Assault ship. This one is also textured like the Clone Wars variant because well, its a bit more colorful and less gray and boring.

The work on this looks very, VERY promising. I'm surprised by the number of quality mods that are still being worked on for Jedi Academy.

I don't want to seem too bold, but if you wouldn't mind, here's a couple of suggestions from me:

(1) If the person holding the yellow lightsaber is aligned with The Dark Side of The Force, please consider altering the saber color to RED. Even if this person isn't completely beholden to the Dark Side, make the saber RED. There hasn't been a single yellow saber seen in any of the films, and since they're the most canonical source, I'd just stick to what we've seen there for saber colors. Even purple would be a more believable selection than yellow.

(2) Please, oh PLEASE release multiplayer maps WITH bot routes based on the single-player map images that you've shown so far. And if it's not too much trouble, please release them so that they're not just FFA or TFFA, but also Duel and Power Duel. In my opinion, the most faithful saber system yet developed for any Star Wars title was engineered by the Open Jedi Project Enhanced, and I would love to play in your exquisite environments using OJPE's superbly cinemataic system.

Keep up the great looking work!

1) Sure thats what you see in the film. But have you ever played Galactic Battlegrounds? Sev'rance Tann DOES have a Yellow saber, and she was a character created for that game.

I had it as red originally, till I played the game again and found she had a yellow saber. So it is 100% correct.

2)I always include bot support in MP maps. Yeah OJP can be a bit more stable saber system. But I like MB2s more, its simple and to the point, not choosing 500 things for certain things.. then getting others... its just D;
