  2. I know, I know. It's a little late. But I think everyone can agree that this is a fun holiday to celebrate, we get really creative submissions, and everyone that would normally participate is probably already working on something with or without the contest, so let's do this. Halloween contests are all about making spooky mods for Jedi Outcast or Jedi Academy. Think about monsters, goblins, & ghouls. Vampires, zombies, & ghosts. Having a Star Wars twist is always a bonus, in my opinion. You can make maps, playermodels, skins, cosmetic mods, etc. If it goes in a PK3, it's fair game. 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 mod 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 27, 2022, after which a poll will be opened. The poll will be closed by the morning of October 31, 2022. Need inspiration? You can view the previous Halloween contests we've held at the links below. Lots of cool stuff in each of them! All are listed on the Contests page. 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 Contest Entries 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 sp00ky season! Submit to Halloween Contest '22

  4. First of all, yes, I made it a little more cozy around here for the holidays. Hopefully that's alright with you. If it's not and you're horrendously offended, you can select the normal theme in the bottom left of the page. For the rest of you, Happy Holidays! We added a tag for "holiday" themed mods, including winter themed ones so it's easy to find them. Take a look at the list here. If you find one that isn't on this list, report and we'll get that tag added. Secondly, I wanted to discuss a small change we made to the file section. Though it's simple, I think I need to specify the reasoning and guidelines for it. In the past, reviews and comments were basically the same thing, with ratings being completely separate. Now since JKHub 2.0, reviews and ratings are one in the same, while comments exist as its own thing. This has created some confusion by some people, and misuse by others. Reviews and comments are quite different, and are exactly what they sound like they should be now, rather than the convoluted mess they were before. From now on, we will be requiring downloads for reviews to be written. All reviews will be moderated before being approved and displayed. That means you can't just look at the screenshots and decide it's a 5 star mod, or at least not completely. We highly recommend playing or using a mod/file before you bother giving it a review. If you want to give some simple praise or reaction, the comment section is perfect for that. This does not mean you have to write an entire 3 paragraph analysis of the mod. It just means you need to actually put some thought and depth into your review. Did you rate it 5 stars? Why? Only 3? What can be improved? What is a review? Yes, I'm getting this particular. A review IS an assessment of the content of a mod a descriptive and well written sentence or paragraph or more a constructive collection of criticisms and/or praises according to your subjective opinion and experience using/playing the mod. A review is NOT a one or two word reaction a simple impression from glancing at the screenshots a request for help or support with the mod/file A comment IS a short reaction a support question asking for help with the mod/file basically anything that isn't on the list below A comment is NOT a review, obviously a spam post a advertisement for a similar mod with the intent to draw people away Hopefully this will encourage people to use the mod before giving it a perfect rating, but also avoid spamming the review section with one or two word reactions, instead of well-thought out reviews that help others know more about how the mod is and if it's something they'd be interested in taking the time trying out. Upcoming contest In other news, we won't have a contest for the end of the year, which I know is a bummer to some. We will have on at the start of the new year though, to tie into Book of Boba, so get hyped for that, and you can even get started if you wanted to. The theme will be Star Wars Underworld: Scum, villainy, bounty hunters, Hutts, crime syndicates, the worst sleemos you can think of. Feel free to start planning your entries! We hope y'all have a great holiday season!
  5. Hello! Many of you hopefully know that we offer a couple service to the Jedi Outcast and Jedi Academy community, such as the JKHub Bar, making it easier to connect with other groups and clans around the community. Another one is mod project forums, giving mod teams an easy way to work and share progress on their projects. One of our most popular ones is the JK3.in server IP shortcut. If you've ever played the games on multiplayer, you probably have run into the issue where you need to connect to a server manually by typing in the IP address. Sometimes that long string of numbers can be difficult to remember or just simply annoying to type in all the time. JK3.in aims to remedy that issue by giving you a way to shorten your IP and still function the same way. Instead of typing /connect 198.50.210.78, you'd type /connect you.jk3.in. It's easier to remember and can be changed if you change your server's IP. This service is very popular with clans and large groups. Currently we have around 60 shortcuts being used with jk3.in. Today I'm announcing that we have added a new domain to this service! SWJK.in will function exactly the same. The purpose of adding this domain is to cater to those with Jedi Outcast servers. Since Jedi Outcast isn't "JK3" (technically neither is Jedi Academy) but rather it is "JK2", it wouldn't make sense to use that shortcut. And before you all ask, JK2.in was taken. But this also gives a choice for Jedi Academy players to use either JK3.in or SWJK.in. Anyway, if you have a JK2 server and have been wanting this shortcut or maybe you didn't even know this existed until now, PM or email me or check out the actual page and click the link at the bottom.
