    Secret Santa 2018

    By MagSul,


    It's that time of year again! The holidays are upon us! Every year we try to put on some kind of event related to Christmas, since that's the majority of what people celebrate around here. If you celebrate something else, you can still get into the spirit of giving by participating in this year's holiday event!

    Secret Santa is back!

    We've successfully done two Secret Santa events in the past, so we're trying it again this year! If you're unfamiliar with how Secret Santa works, basically you'll receive the name of another person participating and you must create a mod or graphic of some kind for that person. They can choose to provide a list of items they want, and you can choose to make something from that list or not. Some more details below.

    The rules
    • You must be a registered member.
    • You must be able to create a mod in JKA or JK2 of some kind or a graphic (signature, wallpaper, etc), even if it's something really simple.
    • You must sign up, by sending a PM to the Secret Santa account, saying you're participating and/or a list of what you want.
    • You must have the time and motivation to complete your gift on time.
    • You must sign up by December 5th.
    • You will receive a PM from that same account containing the person and their list, on December 6th.
    • You will have until December 23rd to submit your gifts to the Secret Santa account via PM, once again.
    • You will receive your gift on Christmas Day, December 25th.
    What should you ask for?

    It's better to make a list of simple things that people can make, not things that you've been spamming the requests forum with. If you put "make me JK4" or "i just want rend2" obviously that won't happen. Here are some examples:
    • a forum avatar or signature
    • a mod of Rosh saying everything backwards
    • a JKA-related wallpaper
    • a giant toothbrush saber model
    • a mod that replaces the chat icon with a Christmas wreath
    • a simple code mod
    What should you NOT ask for?
    • JK4 (seriously people...)
    • rend2
    • a new playermodel of some character
    • a huge map (small maps might be okay, depends)
    • some kind of mod that involves heavy coding
    • a mod that makes "Circa" replace every mention of "Rosh"
    Bottom line: don't ask for something that would take months or years to make. If you don't have time to make something elaborate, your secret santa won't either.

    If you fail to make your gift, you force the staff to scrounge up something last-minute, which isn't cool, so please make sure to make something. Also, no physical or monetary gifts or address exchanging for this. Mods and graphics only.

    And again: you can only participate if you can create a gift too. If you can't you will be denied entry into the Santa zone. :P

    That should cover it, so if you're up for it, sign up and get your list in! :santa:

    Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy Anniversary Tournament

    By SiLink,


    This will be the third installment of the JK:JA Anniversary Tournament, where the aim of the tournament is to bring together the entire community for one big event to celebrate the anniversary of the release of Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy, so we will start the tournament on the weekend before this date, so the event will begin on the 15th September 2018. This will be a 2v2 team based tournament and the bracket will be completely randomised but, you can choose your teammate. Due to how tournaments work, there is likely to include qualifying matches to round the tournament to a power of 2 bracket (32, 64, 128 etc).

     The tournament is open to everyone that plays Jedi Academy and there is no limit on the number of players that can take part, so potentially we’ll have quite a large tournament like the past two events (Up to 79 players), which will span several weeks. Every match will be recorded and put on our YouTube account in glorious 1080p for everyone to watch as the tournament progresses over the weeks.

     For rules, an overview of how the tournament will work and how to sign up, see our Arcadia news post for full details.


    What to do next!

    This is user-submitted news by SiLink. If you'd like to submit your own news to the front page of JKHub, follow this guide to get started, or ask a member of staff for more info.

    New Staff & JKHub 2.0 (Demo)

    By MagSul,


    We have 2 new staff members
    Following on from our last news post we have two new members of staff! Both Wolfeye and myself have recently had our applications accepted and are now looking forward to giving it our all and providing a helping hand alongside Circa, AshuraDX and Caelum. For those who aren't familiar with us: Wolfeye began with JKA in December 2013 as a 1.00 player. He was the founder of Random Clan, and he co-founded the Phantom Academy with Frost. Wolfeye then went on to join the Shadow Order in October of 2016 after Random disbanded, and then left in the April of 2017. He's currently the leader of the clan known as Tempest, and the lead admin for the JKCommunity Discord server, which Caelum insists on re-emphasizing is a third-party that's completely unrelated to JKHub.
    As for me: I've been playing JKA online since 2006, but my consistent home for many years was the ::JEDI:: role-playing community, where I played a variety of characters at varying ranks. I began my career in JKHub when Caelum first recruited me alongside others such as Azatha, SiLink, Inyri and Szico. I stepped down after a while and invested a lot more of my time in ::JEDI:: again and developing my own mods, such as a new single player campaign which can be found here on the site! I eventually found my way to the Shadow Order and with some more time on my hands, have volunteered to give back to the JKHub community once again.
    This does also mean that staff applications are now closed for the time being. However, should we find ourselves short-handed in the future or in need of additional support, we'll be right back! Special thanks to everyone who applied: even if we didn't pick you, there were some very strong other candidates, and we really appreciate your applications.
    JKHub 2.0 (Demo)
    Did you miss Caelum's shoutout? Those of you with keen eyes my have spotted a few mentions of his work in moving JKHub over to new software. Well, you can now access the demo for JKHub 2.0 by visiting https://demo.jkhub.org/! Please keep in mind that this is in a heavy work-in-progress state. Give the link a try for us and share whatever feedback you may have! Several features - including an integrated, modernized wiki are still under construction, so check back every once in a while for cool new additions. The demo will be up until such time JKHub moves to the new software, for which we're now only awaiting some work by a paid third-party developer to import our data.
