Announcing Jedi Knight & MotS 3D Preview -
Thanks to a very generous contribution to Massassi by Stephan Reiter, all our Jedi Knight and Mysteries of the Sith level pages now feature a 3D Preview! This lets you poke around the levels in 3D without having to load the game. In fact, you don't even have to have the game installed.
Stephan has made the code open source so anyone can contribute and/or use it on their own. The code can be found here: jkview on Github
Here's an example of the 3d preview in action: MLP3

Nikumubeki and Eversor Asked For This -
me to copy over some old stuff to the Massassi server. And Eversor demanded I update the main page. Here it is.
- SINE - Screenshots of a level Sine_Nomen was working on before his computer crashed and everything was lost :(
- JKL2OBJ - I'm not familiar with this, but the included tutorial video indicates that you can take a gob file and export the whole thing (jkl, referenced 3dos, textures, etc.) as an .obj file which can be used in 3dsmax

2016 Holiday Logo Contest -
As has been an (almost) annual tradition since 1998, we are now running the Massassi Temple Holiday Logo Contest
. Add your submission to the forum thread and it will be uploaded to the 2016 Holiday Logo list
and will soon be rotated on our main page (and maybe the forums). I've always appreciated the work and creativity put into these logos and I'd love to see what everyone comes up with this year! Thanks as always.

Level Comments and Ratings are Back! -
You should now be able to once again leave comments and ratings on the level information pages. This requires a Massassi account
. All old accounts still exist with the old passwords. At this point there is no way to change your password, reset your password, or retrieve your password. I'm working on change and reset password but it will probably be at least another week. However, the only thing we ask for is a username, email address, and password so please feel free to register a new account if you can't get into your old one. Or contact us
and I can figure out a way to let you back into your account.
Please start by playing and leaving feedback for the Death of Massassi Level Pack
. I'm sure the authors would appreciate it!

Star Wars Humble Bundle II -
If you want some cheap old Star Wars games check out the Star Wars Humble Bundle II
. It doesn't have Dark Force, JK, or MotS (the first one did) but some of the games look like they're worth checking out. Forum thread
has some discussion as well.
Level Comments/Ratings -
I was hoping to have the level comments/ratings back up this weekend but it doesn't look like it's going to happen. I have a few more things to clean up first. Hopefully next week. Sorry for the delay!

Unfortunately the level comments & ratings are still down so please leave (constructive and/or positive) feedback on the forums
New Jedi Knight Single Player Level: Life of Grismath -
File: Life of GrismathAuthor: Josh Stickler (Grismath) and Daniel Wilkes (Thrawn[numbarz])Description: In 1997, we learned that we're not alone in the galaxy; this discovery changed the course of history and thrust humanity onto the galactic stage. And what a weird galaxy it is. After a variety of adventures, Grismath left Earth many years ago and has been roaming the galaxy. Now 68 years old, he must come to terms with his own mortality and think about his legacy.

Death of Massassi Level Pack Submissions Are Due -
If you have a level for the Death of Massassi Level Pack
please submit it
right away. I'm going to be posting the submissions tomorrow evening.
Submission Instructions Updated Again -
I updated the submission instructions again. They now have a way to get to the main email address for the Massassi Staff (which is currently just me). This should help make it easier to submit (and reduce reliance on vbulletin, ugh).
Feb. 20, 2016
Submission Instructions Updated -
I updated the submission instructions
. If you have something you'd like to see on The Massassi Temple, head on over to learn how to submit it.
Soon I will start posting level/map/mod submissions again. Most of the other things we have historically posted (3dos, mats, cogs, etc.) don't get used often and are a pain to update so I'm probably not going to update those sections.
Feb. 19, 2016
Level Downloads Fixed -
Level downloads are fixed. Please let me know if you have any problems. Best way to contact me is to use the contact us page
on the forums. The email address linked on all my posts here is no longer valid (replace the .net with a .com and it will work, though).
I'll also be updating the submission instructions this weekend.
