The Admiral's Command Chamber has posted a new review of the Mysteries of the Sith level "The Last Command" by Anthony Piggott. The review, as well as some news about the upcoming screenshot contest and staff openings, is available at the site.
An Impressive Review - Kiramin
The Spaceport just posted a review of Bakura Transfer Station by Raynar. It scored an 88. Given the Spaceports intensive rating scale, thats pretty good. I haven't gotten a chance to check it out yet, but highly intend to.
Things to Come... - Kiramin
I just heard over at JediKnight.Net that there is talk of a mass-multiplayer StarWars-based online RPG. Having just recently gotten into Asheron's Call (an online RPG from Microsoft) I found that pretty interesting. If you are interested, head on over for more info.

Shadar Logoth Official Launch - Brian
We are very happy to announce the official launch of the newest Massassi Network site. Shadar Logoth ( is based on Legend's recently released action/adventure/rpg game, Wheel of Time. Wheel of Time is based on Robert Jordan's best-selling fantasy series.

Shadar Logoth attempts to fill the same void Massassi filled in JK editing's infancy. They provide news, forums, game information, and most importantly, editing tutorials.

Shadar Logoth is headed up by someone who has been an active and important part of the JK community since it's inception. Tom 'Magi' Smallwood is the author of many great mods including Swoop, Blaster Tag, and the incredible Warzone.

Anyway, check out the site and the game - it's an amazing action game with an incredible story (sound familiar?).

Description: This is a Medium to large size level for Mots Since i don't care to do any more work on Mots levels anymore this is my last level. anyway this was my most ambitous project. Min sys requirements are a PII 266 and a voodoo2 class 3d accleartor if you want to mantain anything over 10fps, my P2 333 avgs, around 25fps. The lay out is like this Theres a heavly detailed bell tower near the center. a house right next to it witch you can jump to and from the roofs there are several secrets a unfinshed area that allows you to change skins (unfinshed in the way the host cannot change skins) THere is a rest area with disco music and lights and a prison area that actually works u can lock anyone up in there if you can trap them there. also the ai is present but they dissapear once you leave the room witch cuts down on lag (they are still unsynced but confined to small areas and they do not attack you if u have fists.) That should cover it. IF anyone would like me to realse FIGHTER WARS 1.1 witch is a mod that allows kicks of many difrent kinds and other stuff e-mail me if i get enough support it will be realesd.

LEC Survey - Slug
I got pointed towards a survey by LEC about websites recently.. Pretty interesting stuff, and it let me pout even further about their lack of community support, while putting sites like on a pedestal.. Not to mention I got to shamelessly plug Massassi a couple times.. Anyways, go fill out the survey.

I just got this bit of news from KOJ_BlueJay:
I just thought that you and the Massassi readers might find our "Jedicards" interesting.  (c;  'Take a look at the post on the J-Files. I'm still making them, have many more to do. And this is only the '99 series. Next year will be a different design. And of course I haven't made any special series cards yet.
