    The Mandalorian Mod Contest

    By Circa,

    Modding is a complicated profession. I don't like doing contests this close together, but this one was requested a lot too and it's probably best to start it now while the show is airing and hype is strongest. You'll have more time than ever to work on this contest, so I better see a ton of participants! :child:

    The hit new Star Wars television series, The Mandalorian, has taken the world by storm in popularity and as Star Wars fans here at JKHub, naturally taken us as well. As usual, new official Star Wars content comes out and the modders race to adapt characters, locations, and weapons into our favorite games Jedi Outcast and Academy. Though activity is undoubtedly at an all time low this year around here, that doesn't mean people aren't hard at work on their various projects. There have already been a handful of cool Mando-related mods made after last year's debut of the show.

    This contest is just like the others. Create your own mods for either JK2 or JKA that have something to do with The Mandalorian, any season. It can be maps, models, skins, animations, mini-mods, etc. If it goes in our Files section, it can be submitted. That also means no ported content allowed, of course. Here are the rules in bullet form, as per tradition.

    Rules:

    • All submissions must be related the The Mandalorian series.
    • You can only enter your own creations.
    • You may team up with another modder.
    • Any external content you did not make must be explicitly referenced in the description and readme file.
    • You may enter more than one file.
    • You may enter files that were created previous to this contest, as long as they abide by the rules.
    • Any content is welcome, including skins, models, maps, weapons, menu mods, etc. Just make sure it abides by the rules.
    • Files can be for Jedi Academy and/or Jedi Outcast. We will assume files are for JKA unless specified otherwise.
    • If a large number of mods are submitted, more than one winner may be chosen.
    • The deadline for submitting content is February 1, 2021, after which a poll will be opened.
    • The poll will be closed by the morning of February 6, 2021.

    Awards
    We are still waiting on a few things to have the awards system built into the forum software. I don't expect it to be there even by the time this contest is done, and I really apologize for that. I will do what I can to maybe come up with some temporary alternative in the meantime. I think having a badge on your profile for contest winners would be really cool, and I'm sure y'all would agree. Once it's implemented though, all previous contest winners will get their respective award, so don't worry.

    How do I submit my mod?
    Our goal is to make it as simple as possible for everyone involved. The way you submit your file for this contest is to upload them as normal files in our file section, but using the category called Contest Entries.

    Click the button below, and submit your mod as you normally would. The category should be set to The Mandalorian Contest already. If you don't enter it there, your file won't be entered until you do. If you realize that you didn't do that, PM a staff member and we can change it for you. Good luck and happy hunting! :mando:

    Halloween Contest 2020

    By Circa,

    A classic returns
    Okay, so I had high hopes that we'd get a contest in before October, but the main reason that didn't happen is because we are trying to implement small incentives into the forum software itself so that you can show off your contest awards more easily. That is on hold for now, so I figured we should just go ahead with the Halloween contest, since so many people love it and request it. The poll I posted a few weeks ago was enlightening, however, and those that are wanting those contests will still get them eventually! For now it's time to get spooky. 🦇
     
    Y'all vote
    Unlike our last contest, but like our previous ones, you will have the last week of the month to vote on your favorite submissions. This month works out perfectly where Halloween (and coincidentally the last day of the month) falls on a Saturday. If you're not familiar with our past contests, essentially how it works is you create a mod related to the established theme and everyone votes on their favorite. If you want to see our past Halloween contests, check out those from 2017 & 2016.

    Rules:

    • All submissions must be Halloween-themed (so scary, spooky, frightening, etc. 🧟‍♂️)
    • You can only enter your own creations.
    • You may enter more than one file.
    • Already existing files cannot be submitted. The goal is to encourage new creations!
    • Any content is welcome, including skins, models, maps, weapons, menu mods, etc. Just make sure it abides by the rules.
    • Files can be for Jedi Academy and/or Jedi Outcast. We will assume files are for JKA unless specified otherwise.
    • The deadline for submitting content is October 25, 2020, after which a poll will be opened.
    • The poll will be closed by the morning of October 31, 2020.

    Limited run of physical copies of Jedi Outcast and Academy

    By Circa,

    For you people that still adore physical copies, Limited Run Games is releasing brand new copies of Jedi Outcast and Academy. For those unfamiliar, Limited Run Games is a company that makes exactly that: prints limited runs of select games. They announced a bunch of Star Wars games awhile ago, including Dark Forces II: Jedi Knight, Jedi Outcast, and Jedi Academy. Unfortunately we missed the DF2 order window, but luckily I noticed the JK2 and JKA ones were announced today. Orders will begin on April 24th at 10am EST and then later at 6pm EST.

    There are a couple editions to choose from that come with some really cool collector's editions items. Also of note, is there are PC, PS4, and Switch options, which is nice for those that wanted the new console ports, but were wanting a physical copy instead of digital.
