Fun updates for overheating.
Thanks to Silverfang for making the efx. (I did the code to get it to work).
Circa posted a post in a topic,This year's May the Fourth sale on various platforms and stores have started to be revealed. StarWars.com did an extensive list of gaming related sales going on, including Jedi Knight games.
Scroll down to the end for the PC sales, and of course head straight to Steam/GOG/Origin on May 4th to take advantage. Humble will have various bundles of games for a great price, and they almost always give you Steam keys.
Jedi Outcast and Academy will both be 65% off on all PC stores. Outcast will be 65% off on Nintendo Switch eShop, and Academy will be 50% off.
Of course this isn't the full extent of sales that will be going on. Nearly every store that sells anything related to Star Wars will be having a sale.
SWTOR will be offering a free (yet ugly) pet for those that login next week.
Be on the lookout for more sales and other celebrations (maybe even trailers?) to celebrate the franchise we all know and love.
Even if you are a new canon hater, hopefully you can find a way to be positive during this time instead of filling the internet with more hatred.

Well this hasn't happened before. We have an exact tie for winner of the Underworld Mod Contest! Instead of finding someone to break the tie, I'm going to be generous and give the win to both @Noodle and @biggs for their amazing mods! It may not feel quite as sweet to you guys to share it, but you both get the shiny new badge that you can show on your forum profile!
Noodle's Bounty Hunter is one of the winning mods, and let's just say it was very well deserved. Inspired by an outfit in the game Star Wars: Uprising, this character has quite an intimidating appearance; a figure that would definitely be seen on the payroll of a Hutt or other crimelord. Your modeling skills have come along quite well, my friend!
Inspired by Bladerunner, biggs' Underworld map is an impressive stage of dark and mysterious atmosphere and fits in perfect for its namesake. Though its not technically finished, what is done is very well done and I'm sure everyone will agree that we'd love to see it completed!
Excellent job to everyone that submitted, and thanks to those that voted. Going forward for contests we will be limited votes to accounts that were created before the poll opens to avoid any fraudulent or padding of votes, just a heads up there.
Remember, just because you didn't win this time, we will have more contests in the future, but the goal of these contests is just to inspire creativity with a twist of a deadline and competition. The ultimate win is getting more mods out there for people to enjoy from talented creators like you!

Vote for your favorite! We've got a great collection for this contest to choose from! Nice work to all who created and submitted! You have a week to vote. A winner will be decided by the most votes when voting is closed on April 16th.
Remember, this theme was the "Star Wars Underworld" - which is defined essentially by the criminal and undesirable parts of the galaxy. Or as old Ben put it: scum and villainy.
Which of these do you think is best and deserves to win the Underworld badge?
It's been 20 years since Jedi Outcast launched in 2002, if you can believe that. This masterpiece of a game truly defined what it means to be Jedi in a video game, even to this day, with its intricate lightsaber combat and Force powers. Continuing the Dark Forces story, Outcast follows the mercenary turned Jedi, Kyle Katarn, after he shuts himself off from the Force and returns to being an agent of the New Republic.
With such a milestone anniversary, I really wanted to do something special here, and unfortunately I did not get this published in time for the actual day, yesterday. I'm hoping I will be forgiven for being late with how great this project turned out.
I got a chance to sit down with 5 of the developers of Jedi Outcast over a Zoom call and not only did they take time to talk with me about this wonderful game, but they talked to me for nearly 3 hours. I cut it down to just 2 hours. It's clear from the very beginning that they were truly passionate about this game and consider it their proudest achievement. Take a look at the video below and listen as they reminisce and chat about development and that era of their careers!
