New Year's Day, 2000
LOTW - Slug
Am I the only one incredibly pleased with these recent levels? Seems there's been a shift in focus on levels - I can't recall a time where people were intent on making levels that flowed.. I mean, sure, it's been done before of course, but not to this degree, not to this professional quality.. These levels are what I hope for my levels to be, they're the levels I look up to, and learn from..
First Real News of 2000 - blujay
Well, I don't mean to overpost, but I was in a rush to post that last one. The countdown in Times Square was under one minute and I wanted to get it in before it hit midnight there.  (c;

In actual news, the first SOTD of 2000 is up, so check it out.
First Massassi Post of 2000 - blujay
Well, it's not 2000 yet in California, but it is less than 1 minute until it is in Times Square, so Happy New Year!
New Years Eve, 1999
Last Massassi Post of 1999 - blujay
Well I am about to update the SOTD and since it is 11 PM here in Arkansas and almost the end of the year, I thought I would go ahead and advance the date to 2000 so the SOTD will get more than a few hours on the site. So, I get to make the last post of 1999, and the first of 2000. heh heh  (c;

Happy New Year!
Enough Of My Ramblings.. - Slug
Now you can see DFA for yourself, instead of listening to my insane babble.. Ramen has released Death From Above: Turbo Ritalin Edition.. Very cool stuff, as you may have gleemed from my post last night..
Holy Schlamoley! - Slug
*droooool*.. It's about 1:30 AM, Thursday night (Friday morning I suppose), and I just got outta a game of DFA, Turbo Ritalin Edition (Death From Above's MP pack).. Wow.. Some of the most fun I've had in a game of JK ever.. The weapons are just plain awesome, and it includes 2 guns not available in the SP demo (Well, one of them was available if you cheated).. The doubled-up Tec-9s, and the SLAT (A HUGE rocket launcher).. I of course, tore the game up, with my trusty Shotgun, Amelia (I felt the need to name it mid-way through the game..) The Tec-9s don't seem to be terribly effective, but man are they fun.. I feel like Neo when I run around, 2 guns blazing at any poor sap in front of me.. I could say I love DFA, Turbo Ritalin Edition, but that word is only a pale shadow of the feelings I have for it.. All in all, the absolute second you see this mod posted, GRAB IT! I'll see if I can post some screens tomorrow, gotta check with Ram I suppose.. Wasn't quite sure on how much he wants to keep hidden until release..

Thief II: The Metal Age Demo - blujay
Fourwood sent us word that 3D has the demo of Thief II up. Here's what 3D Files says:
This is an alpha v1.01 demo of Thief II: The Metal Age. It works great, movement is a bit hairy though. You may have heard the term "First Person Shooter" to describe other action games with a first-person point of view. Thief 2 is not one of those games. Instead, think of Thief 2 as a "First Person Sneaker." Sure, you can use your sword and bow to kill your enemies, but the general rule of engagement in Thief 2 is: "The enemy should never know you were there." This is a big one at 136MB.
Another Contest Logo - blujay
Nimph sent in his logo and it's now on the contest page.

But remember.. this is kinda like a pre-set for my next level: NFL. some of this may look unfinished, like there are no benches in the locker rooms, but that will be taken care of in NFL. well...have fun, and thanx.

Screenshot of the Day - blujay
Just wanted to mention that I had a hard time choosing the screen of the day today. Other deserving shots that might be SOTD's in the future were Slug's most recent screenshots, the other JKrpg screenshots, and Squall's cloud skin.

Rebirth of Yoda - Takimoto
I've recently received word that Yoda's is going through a few changes. The great and wise Yoda himself told me via icq. Geez, I feel so special like I'm rubbing elbows with the mayor of New York City at a ribbon cutting of a new library or something (random). They've recently merged with Jedi Masters, and are therefore holding a contest for a name change. It must still include the word Yoda and not be profane. Heck, just read about it here - Yoda's Addons. So, go and submit your ideas for a new name before Armageddon. You've only got a few more days until Y2K, the ultimate destruction of Earth (heavy sarcasm).
Korriban Opens - blujay
Exar_Knight sends word that he has opened his new JK site, Korriban.

A Truly Inane Poll - Slug
Looks like Irrelevant Skins isn't our only hosted site specializing in inanity.. The JK Depot has closed up their last poll, and added a new one.. The topic? Well, I'll let Dragonfly say..
The JK Depot has updated its mailbag! Thanks to all who sent in mail. Our new topic is "What is the best JK MP user-made level?" We have also released the results of our poll. They are
  • 1st place- tied between "Keep it even though you don't get any mail" and "I don't even care"
  • 2nd place- "Keep it and I will start sending in mail"
  • 3rd place- "Throw it in the trash!"
And go vote on our current poll "What is your favorite meal?"
A question only sensible on death row.. But head on over anyway, and let the world know..

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of Outpost D-34, and let me tell you, it's a whole lotta glory.. After a long, long, freakishly long absence, OD34 has returned to the scene.. So click on over there, and revel in that glory I was talking about earlier..
And The Slug Hath Returneth - Slug
Whew! Whoulda thought getting presents could be so much fun? Well, the holidays are over for a few days, so news should start getting posted just a bit more regularly.. Big thanks to Blujay for holding down the fort while the rest of us gluttons enjoyed our presents, or just enjoyed kicking back for the winter break.. I wasn't around to wish everyone a merry xmas, but I hope you all had fun.. Just hope we haven't lost some of ya to newer games you got this week :)
Happy Holidays - Brian
Well, I hope everyone who has been celebrating had a great holiday. I personally celebrate Christmas and I've been having a great time with my family (I see them about twice a year). As you can tell, I've been absent from the site the the past few days. I'll be back around the 3rd or 4th of January (if the world and our server survives the year 2000 turnover, that is). Anyway, I wish everyone a safe and happy new year.

A Christmas Carol: Jedi Knight Style - blujay
Jedi Legacy has a wonderful version of A Christmas Carol up on their forums. A must see.

Merry Christmas!
Etc. - blujay
Just a few notes.  (c;  About the SOTD, I know I haven't been updating it every day for the past few days. Sometimes I don't have time to, and sometimes I can't find enough shots. But it's Christmas, so there will be a bit of a slowdown; I'm sure it will pick up after New Year's.  (c;

And on a different subject, remember that there are twelve days of Christmas. Don't stop celebrating until at least New Year's. It doesn't make sense to end Christmas so soon.  (c;

Merry Christmas!
Another New Logo - blujay
I added another new logo to the contest page by PedHead.

Merry Christmas!
