May the 4th is just one day away, and to join in this unofficial Star Wars celebration, we’re compiling a list of the best Star Wars mods that you can play right now. These range from Star Wars total conversions for unexpected games, to mods for existing Star Wars titles that expand upon, create new content for, overhaul or otherwise make for better and brand new experiences.
In addition, GOG.com has announced a Star Wars sale, to coincide with the distributor’s new addition of Star Wars Battlefront Classic. If you don’t already own these classic Star Wars games, now is the time to grab them on the cheap and play the following mods for some of the best games from a galaxy far, far away!
JEDI KNIGHT: DARK FORCES II
Jedi Knight Enhanced is a graphical overhaul for the game Jedi Knight: Dark forces 2 The mod features higher poly models, and higher resolution 16 bit textures. It aims for "Quake 3 era" graphics.
This is a replacement texture pack for Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II. These textures were upscaled using ESRGAN and a custom model. This texture pack is intended for use by mod authors as a base for their own high-resolution retexture projects. Although this texture pack is usable without further changes, the textures in this pack are quite raw. Most of them have artifacts from the upscaling process, which in a complete effort should be manually removed by an artist.
A rebuild of the released 2015 SerenityJediEngine. Many code fixes and additional features. Supports single and multiplayer. I have given myself a whole year to finish the project, to avoid a rushed release. Serenity has given me permission to continue this project and I can now confirm this project will contain no plagiarised material. More details to follow as progress develops.
Movie Battles is a class-based, team-orientated Multiplayer Total Conversion for Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy.
Our goals are to let players create their own Star Wars battles, playing and fighting against numerous characters ranging from all three trilogies, Rogue One, Star Wars Rebels, and even characters from the old Legends Continuity across many maps set in the Star Wars universe. Players will be able to use hundreds of various lightsabers and weapons from the films and fight across various maps of locations from the films.
Featuring 3 playable factions — the Republic, CIS, and Militia — and 5 unique Clone legions on all of the stock land maps from Coruscant to Yavin 4, Battlefront: The Clone Wars puts you right in Dave Filoni's animated TV series. Some maps, such as Mos Eisley and Felucia, have received complete overhauls, creating a unique night version of Felucia and a different layout for Mos Eisley.
The purpose of this mod is to recreate the Star Wars universe through various mythical epochs and places of the saga. "Battlefront Ultimate commander" is a a total conversion modification that adds new eras, new game-modes, new units and many more!
My main objective was to make the game more realistic by sharpening the image, normalizing color saturation, improving game lighting, using a more subtle bloom and making it compatible with ALL the maps (there are some well known graphics enhancers that are glitchy in white maps like Hoth, or in Space).
I tried this mod succesfully in every default map. It works amazingly with Battlefront Evolved Mod, which improves the game models and textures, and Rezzed Maps, which are High Definition maps.
TSLRCM tries to fix to the best of our abilities the issues The Sith Lords had due to being rushed. Containing a host of restored content and fixes many bugs left inside TSL giving you the most polished and best possible chance to get the full experience.
