About This File

 

Jedi's Home III (3) is a continuation of a community favorite map series "Jedi's Home 1 & 2". In my earliest JKA days I remember these maps as many of us do. A lot of mixed memories but most of all I remember the many communities that used those maps, the hours they spent hunting the secrets! I wanted to bring that back, to capture it in all of its glory and then maximize it with what JKA can handle. To bring all of that back and then expand on it just enough to hint at some thing bigger to come; above all I wanted you all to come back together the way we all once were. 
I hope this map helps you make new memories with your JKA families and friends. 

Now on a technical side this map is insane! Not to toot my own horn but wow! This was 7 years of work. A lot of it spent hard core dedicated to it, other times personal life came into play. I made sure to include many of the classic Jh1/2 Secrets and to expand even more by adding new one's and "Easter Egg" hunts. This map was a huge group effort in many ways, from bug testing, various models, input and guidance, testing servers, Guinea pigs,  and just down right random helpers. From day one it has been a community effort! 

Known bugs -  some times when not using the reflection plug in some spots under certain lighting conditions can look strange here and there. (Just a few spots).  
This map is huge, as such it can take a bit to load, don't freak out. These and many other issues will be fixed in the Jedi's Home 3.5 update coming next December.

A special shout out to  the following. 

AshuraDx -  This guy is really awesome, he's really into perspective and illusions -  So you can thank him for the creepy Palpatine painting and Ackbar!!!

Anoek - What can I say, if there is a heart in this map it was her. I'm sorry about what happened. I left your stuff just as you asked.
Thank you for every thing. 

Helena of Clan Jawa - I swear this woman drove me nuts for so long about the angle of the stairs in the archives it drove me to totally rebuild the stairs all together! In other words ❤️ thank you for all your support and techy help as well as the inspiration for the furtniture. (Sadly due to texture limitations I wasn't able to use any of your models) I did rebuild a likeness of your chair for this in .map for what I needed.) Any who point is she is the grandma of this map!!! 
You got a place in the senate hall check it out!!!

Robert - I based the main room of the Sith base on a map he built long ago though his heart was in it he never got to release that map. Well I loved it soo much and remembered how hard her worked for the look I decided to rebuild it and put it in this map. She's immortal now Robert. 😛 All Wings Report In!
If you ever get the itch to dled this and try it. Be sure to take a good look at the table you start at in df2. (Remember the cut scene before it - It deals with fathers.)

Shadow Stone - You started the entire series and launched a legend! I hope this brings the community together the way your first 2 did!

Ruxith - For all the beautiful chrome statues you see through the building and of course my beloved crowbar! 

To so many others, thank you. This map has been a community affort! I hope it paves the way to bringing us all back together! To the future!

Jkhub - for hosting the file and Mr Wonko who we all know will grab this just like everything for safe keeping. Ty mate we ❤️ your service!

Perso - Cleaned up the beautiful main music! 😄 Sounds beautiful!

Even though I'm not much into MP, I definitely had a lot of fun exploring this Jedi's Home III. I would say, that this pack is one of the most decent maps I've experienced. As I don't play JA online, I would review the map as a SP user, a fellow modder/mapper and a Star Wars fan.

First of all – the whole location is really huge. There are several sections to explore, but I started it near the landing platform, which reminds of classic Star Wars cities. While it might be close visually to Cloud City and Jedi Outcast in many ways, I somehow felt great presence of Mysteries of the Sith there. When outside, you can't stop admiring the atmosphere – the light there is absolutely hilarious!

Dozens of other places look very good and are interesting to explore, like cantina, the Senate hall and training areas. I tried an early version, when some doors were closed, but the major ones were open and fully functional. A large SwoopTrack can also be found here. I really enjoyed the references to various Star Wars places.

My absolute favourite is the level of details, and as a keen fan of art and sculpture, I'm still amazed by the statues in Jedi's Home III – the Jedi-like Sages and Mysterious ladies. Not sure, how they were made, but the design is simple, yet very stylish. Shaders is something adds deepness to the level and makes the stones and other materials more realistic. The surfaces have a shiny look, but the texture of small scratches and abrasions gives it some backstory – that these floors saw a lot in many-many years.

I can only assume, how much fun it would be to play on this map in MP, with so many open space areas. I would definitely like to see Jedi's Home III as part of some SP story, with NPC interactions, dog-fights and major duels against Force wielders. In any case AngelModder did a very good job!

The map definitely has a place for the masters and a place for the learners as this map definitely has a great feel of an academy in the clouds. Well worth the wait, well worth the download.

WE ARE CURENTLY WORKING ON A BUG LIST FOR THIS MOD - IF YOU KNOW OF ANY PLEASE PM ME HERE ON JKHUB. PICTURES HELP! WE KNOW ABOUT 2 MISSING TEXTURES A FEW MINOR ITCHES AND THAT THE HOLOCRON SECRET LIKES TO POKE UP THROUGH THE FLOOR OF THE MAIN LOBBY FOR SOME REASON.

AGAIN, ANY OTHERS PLEASE PM ME!!!

I WILL RELEASE A 3.1 PATCH ASAP. I APOLIGIZE, JUST THIS MAP IS HUGE AND THAT MEANS PROBLEMS TO WORK OUT TO REFINE IT! THATS WHERE ALL OF YOU COME IN!

Yes this was in caps to get attention to the subject.

Worthy of the title "3rd Jedi's Home map" and runs surprisingly well too, a few places where FPS drops but you hardly even notice it. 👍
