New Jedi Outcast Skin: Armored Saberist - GhostOfYoda @ 9:57 AM
File: Armored Saberist
Author: Nate Dailo A.K.A. Blade76
Screenshots: Screenshot 1, Screenshot 2
Description: I have made a plentious amount of skins for JK2 but this is really my 2nd "real" skin that I have released at Massassi. My previous skin was Raikin (a reskin of Kyle with armor). This one is yet another skin with armor, although this time using the Jedi model. Its a combination of existing jpegs in the assets.

Constructive comments would be very much appreciated. I believe that skinning is old editing but can still live on.
New Jedi Knight Multiplayer Level: Prestiege Skyscraper - GhostOfYoda @ 3:27 PM
File: Prestiege Skyscraper
Author: KBIG104
Screenshots: Screenshot 1, Screenshot 2
Description: This is a large multiplayer level that is an office building. The building consists of 13 floors including a day spa, subway station, radio station, breakable glass, outside areas, rooftop resturant and more! The total level is over a "mile" in length since there is a working subway. This is my first level, so the texturing isn't exactly eye candy. Both regular elevators and express elevators serve the stucture. I'd like to thank massassi.net for the resources used in this level's creation. This is great for 4-8 players, although one player alone can explore. It is excellent for high-speed saber duels.

New Jedi Outcast Skin: Santa Claus AKA Father Christmas Version 2 - GhostOfYoda @ 4:49 PM
File: Santa Claus AKA Father Christmas Version 2
Author: Hekx Noxu
Screenshots: Screenshot 1, Screenshot 2
Description: A rodian father christmas, omplete with REAL dog-fur beard. I previously used the Morgan model because of it's beard and general human appearance. This is the second version of my Santa skin. This time I spent more time attempting to modify it, using constructive comments that I have recieved from jk2files.com and massassi.net.

I left the rodian-style face to show a futuristic alien santa. Since there's no fat human model I can think of, this is the closest I can get to an actual Santa skin. I'll keep my eyes out and maybe update it if I can find a better model. It seems like santa would need a new model to keep all the stereotypical qualitites we associate with him.

Please note this skin was built more for the comical value than the eye-candy. The bot is quite amusing so have fun fraggin'!

New Jedi Knight Multiplayer Level: GoldenEye Bunker - GhostOfYoda @ 5:46 PM
File: GoldenEye Bunker
Author: ID_Junkguy and ID_Matt
Screenshots: Screenshot 1, Screenshot 2
Description: This level is based on the classic Bunker multiplayer level from GoldenEye 64. It is made by the creators of the GoldenEye Mod, KWP, EWP, and more. This level is an underground bunker located in Severnaya, Siberia. GoldenEye Bunker has extremely accurate and detailed architecture, textures, and objects. Just like in the N64 version, the level has a helipad outside, a main control room, all the hallways and little rooms, the prison area, and more. However, we have included some very fun secrets and other little features. This high quality level provides excellent gameplay and looks amazing at the same time.

Please note that this level uses high quality 16-bit textures. If you do not have a 3D card that supports 16-bit textures, go here to download a small 8-bit patch.

Although this level works great with all mods, it is recommended for use with the GoldenEye Mod.

This level was intended for use with TDIR(DBZ 4.0), but has a few hidden guns, so it can be used without mods. Enjoy the transporter switches (which incidently, may have to be hit more than once to work). I hope you enjoy my level.

Two Levels Removed - GhostOfYoda @ 9:54 AM
Corran has requested that we remove two of his levels; DotR Hideaway and DotR Hideaway Special Edition. The main reason for removing this level is as follows:
"I may be re-submitting this pending updates, and probably when my new level is done"

However, he also has another message concerning these levels:
"I'm dissappointed that somebody has decompiled DotR Hideaway in JED to find out the secret of getting into my apartment in order to post it in the comments, although this does fall under free speech its not the primary reason for removal, and it is terribly disrespectful to me, the author. This is a request to all JK players not to rip levels just so you can post every little detail about it on the comments taking the fun out of finding the secrets."

Kyle has arrived at the imperial base. Now he has to continue his journey inside the base. His aim is to get to the central computer where he can download all the data about this base. Hopefully, it will tell him where the other secret bases are located.

IMPORTANT! The level was designed to work with the fourth part so when the level ends at an elevator that goes up, it says that it can't find the mine_base2.bsp! If you continue, the elevator will damage or kill you.

NOTE: The level zip contains a walkthrough.

New Jedi Knight Single Player Level: A Jedi's Discovery 3: Your Own End - Kedri @ 6:04 AM
File: A Jedi's Discovery 3: Your Own End
Author: Zippy1000
Screenshots: Screenshot 1, Screenshot 2
Description: This is the very last chapter in the Jedi's Discovery series, and it contains five levels. The Jedi consider their next move concerning the cloning facility that orbiting Tatooine. When they learn of the existence of a planetary gun on Tatooine, used to destroy incoming asteroids, the Jedi decide to use it to help them destroy the facility. They send down Obi-Wan (you) to Tatooine to perform this mission. Little does Obi-Wan know of the horrors that lie ahead...

Note: The game comes with a patch. It's very important you use it. I would recomend you use the regular save rather than quick save; when doing so, make sure your lightsaber is not out. For some reason, I'm not sure, the levels didn't want to connect into one episode. So when you complete a level, go back to New Game menu, then choose the next level in the list of games.

New Jedi Knight Multiplayer Level: Draw 1.0 - Pommy @ 5:53 PM
File: Draw 1.0
Author: ID_Junkguy and ID_Matt
Screenshots: Screenshot 1, Screenshot 2
Description: Draw 1.0 is not intended to be a deathmatch level. Instead, it's an arena-like level with a grid of white squares in the middle. To draw a picture, one will press each white square to make it black. There is a console near the grid where you can view or take screenshots of your creation.

Although it kind of works as a saber arena in multiplayer (it has low-grav so you can see your work by jumping), it is most highly recommended that one of the Draw games be played. Included in the zip is a text file which states the instructions for a couple of game ideas. I personally believe that "Name the Picture" is extremely fun in multiplayer games, so try it out!

Also, please take into account that the console is at the north end, so remember to draw your pictures with the console north of it.

If you make up any new games or modify one of my games to make it more fun, please email me or post the game idea in the comments page. We may include it in the next version of Draw. Please also comment on the level and give some suggestions, so we can make better versions in the future.

Jedi Outcast Sequel Might Be On The Way - Kedri @ 8:31 AM
A story posted on HomeLan Fed yesterday describes a very interesting piece of conversation that took place during a fiscal quarter conference call at Activision. They mentioned a sequel to Jedi Outcast was in the works, to be released somewhere between March 2003 and April 2004. The game would still be based on the Quake 3 engine, and Activision would still be the house LucasArts works with to produce the title. If you follow the link to the HomeLan Fed site up there, you can actually hear a recroding of the conference where this was mentioned.

While we all had the sense that Activision would only do well to produce another title based on such a hit as Jedi Outcast, this is the most solid lead we've seen about it (at the time of this posting, HomeLan Fed was still attempting to confirm this story). The fact that they're referring to the project as a sequel, and not simply an expansion pack, is very encouraging.

Lucas Builds An Empire Of His Own - Kedri @ 5:37 PM
A post at Slashdot is reporting that George Lucas, having taken a shine to this whole "Empire" concept, is consolidating his four prinicpal companies, Lucas Digital, Lucas Licensing, Lucasfilm, and, our favorite, LucasArts Entertainment, into one giant uber-company, which will collectively be known as Lucasfilm Ltd. You can read the original article in its entirety at the SF Gate web site.
