"Over a millenia ago, my people waged a war that nearly consumed the galaxy. We didn't fight for patriotism or politics and were not driven by anger or greed. We fought because the squabbling Jedi, Sith and the factions that followed them cast the entire galaxy into a perpetual chaos. Their diluted and self-righteous aspirations led them to war again, and again. We fought for glory and to bring balance back; to restore order. Unfortunately, my ancestors failed in that mission. There is a difference though, between them and me; I don't fail.

Now it's the eve of a new generation. The Empire, the culmination of centuries of manipulation and corruption, has been defeated by...children. The New Republic likes to believe that they can sit behind the controls but in truth, their utopian ideals are laced with shortcomings and naivete. In spite of all they have accomplished, war still pervades and the chaos that planted itself so long ago, continues to thrive as the factions of the Empire split and the New Republic loses its grasp on everything it so recently gained.

It is time for my people to march again into the dynamic of the crumbling galaxy. It's time to give rise to a new order; the rise of the Mandalorians."

I won't make this long but for those of you who remember this game, you really need to check out the work that JDB_Artist has done so far! His talent is inspiring and he has truly gotten off to a fantastic start making Jedi Knight 2 look next-gen. Check out the mod page here:


For now, my task is to recreate the game's weapons by giving them a next-gen makeover. That means making all new models and textures, including normal and specular maps. Sometime down the line I will also be creating characters, including the famed Kyle Katarn! All pics and info are available at the above link and I will also post screenshots of my work to my profile page.

And before you panic... This will in no way affect my work on Rise of the Mandalorians or Campaign Commander after that. JDB knows of my other mods and respects my time and endeavors. RotM and Halo: CC are first priority! When spare time does roll around though and I hit a "modder's block" with my EaW mods, you can be sure that I will be working on this.

I limited the production of capital-class ships to shipyard capable planets only. That was a mistake though as it makes gameplay quite frustrating. I have removed that in the upcoming release.

I just asked the same question on the Vong mod, but i'd like to know if it's something you've thought about aswell. (The vong mod and this one are the ones i primarily follow)

I'd really like to be able to put my walkers in reverse. If my AT-AT moves up slightly too far, say into range of a turbolaser tower, it would be nice to be able to simply walk backwards instead of having to turn all the way around.

Do you think this is possible? Games like Company of Heroes 2 have something like that for their tanks and other armored vehicles. Having played that and coming back to EaW it bugs me so much that i can't do that.

It suppose it would be something comparable to Garm Bels weapons platform, but for walkers.

Yes, I actually experimented with this because I really thought it would be a great feature BUT... The problem is that they aren't scripted to turn around at any point so if they happen to be facing that way when you give the move order, it will potentially walk across the entire map backward and it looks really funny. LOL

Ah right, as an alternative. Is there any way to get a hold position command/button in the game?
All we have is ''stop'', which i find myself spamming when my AT-AT is in combat or just after it drops stormtroopers.

I think the closes thing to a 'full stop' that EaW has is 'guard'. You have to tell the unit to guard a spot on the ground. and they will mostly stay there. It's not perfect but it's better than watching them chase a single unit across the map and get killed....
