The Dark Pastime is a Single Player modification (or add-on) for the Jedi Academy video game. Being in development for several years, the project is now at its final stage.

The story takes place in 17 ABY, several years after the events with Tavion and her Sith cult. The Jedi Academy became a large organization of peace-keepers, loyal to the New Republic. Former Galactic Empire is weakened, but still has enough forces to fight both the Republic and the Jedi. However they tried to remain silent for some time until the accident in the system of Goura occured... But is it the Empire to blame for the deaths of dozens of soldiers? Or is it someone else trying to make everyone to believe this story?

Mon Mothma asked the Jedi for help - one more time - to find out what really happened with the Republic base on Goura and investigate any possible Imperial activity in that sector. So it happens that Kyle Katarn, an agent of the New Republic and now a Jedi Knight decides to chase the Imperial dreadnaught, that was believed to have been responsible for the attack.

The Imperial captain manages to leave his ship and flee to Ord Mantell, where then he is killed by a mysterious assassin. It seems somebody is trying to hatch a plot against the Jedi and the Republic itself. And Kyle Katarn is the only one who can find out the true identity of the evil enjoying torturing the Galaxy this time...

After all these difficult times and lot of stuff in March-June, we finally bring you an update on our progress. Even during this period we worked on maps and models, and today we would like to show you some of our work.

Galactic Empire or Imperial Remnant

In our mod the Empire plays a role less significant than what we see in JA, but it’s still one of the main adversaries in DP. We try to show, that even being defeated several times after Endor, the former Empire still has resources and armies to survive and actually rule the Galaxy. 

You might have seen already the new Imperial characters, like Imperial technicians and Imperial female officers from our previous news updates. While we do plan to make additional Imperials, for now the latest addition into Imperial army in DP are the All Terrain Armored Transport and Imperial-class Star Destroyer.

The Star Destroyer is a huge model, which will be present in several missions and is essential to the plot. I can’t say more on the actual role of this large military vehicle in the mod. But I think, you’ll like what you see (especially the fans of the Empire).

As for AT-AT – this is a new fully animated transport, which can be seen on Imperial worlds. I must say, that it’s not just a decoration, but an actual unit. 

Civilian Transport

We also completed XP38 landspeeder and the Void Spider TX-3 Air Taxi. Be sure to check these as well. :)

Twi’Lek Male

I really like Twi’leks, and I am glad, that Jedi Academy introduced them into the JK. However we always thought, that such characters like Bib Fortuna or Boc Aseca are worth having a homage in our project. That is why Olgo and I created a model of male Twi’Lek.

The character has several switchable surfs, including various clothes, as well as faces (not just a reskin, but an actual face form), but the different styles of lekku are among the most notable things here.

Twi’leks are one of the species to be both as neutral and adversary NPCs, which is fair enough, given that most people are tired of shooting bad Rodians, Grans, Weequays and Trandoshans. 

What’s next?

While we are making changes to our page here on moddb, adding new material, I must say, that we’ve completed most of the maps of Part 1, which is to be released soon. We hope to finish successfully all of the aspects of these maps and present you a new adventure of Kyle Katarn in a Galaxy far, far away.

Давно слежу за модом и есть пара вопросов
1) Будут ли обезоруженные противники (например штурмовики) не беспомощно бегать а пытаться напасть на ГГ в рукопашной?
2) Будут ли среди врагов боевые машины помимо At-st?
3) И стали ли враги умнее и опаснее чем раньше?

As I told You before (and others, too ;) ) - any material related to the Dark Pastime Project will be available to mappers and modellers alike only AFTER the release of DP.
We're currently working on Lights in the maps.

K, thanks. Shame this mod isn't very popular. Because it should be. :D Maybe you should advertise a lil' bit more, eh? :P

Your mod is excellent! I would rate it 19/20. ;)

Someone form the Dark Pastime mod said the JKB team could use their models. And since they are magnificent, we thought we would. :) So, could you please send them to ? Thank you anyway.
