DF Imperial City partial remake - for Jedi Academy

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone

I've done a partial remake of the Dark Forces Imperial City level. It starts at the entrance of the main building and ends as Kyle descends into the computer core. There is no Boba Fett fight (sorry!). Download link:

Last year, I remade the whole Robotics Facility (level 8 of Dark Forces) as a playable map. You can download it here.
https://jkhub.org/files/file/3544-df-robotics-facility-remake/

These maps were inspired by DFMOD, which recreated the first 6 levels of Dark Forces for the Jedi Academy engine. In this map I have used several hi res textures from the DFMOD project.

I'm calling this a WIP because the map is incomplete, but I don't have any current plans to go further with it.

 

------------------
To install
------------------

A. Unzip the contents of DF_Impcity.zip into your GameData directory. (It should create a subdirectory called DF_Impcity)

B. Run Jedi Academy, single player mode.

C. Go into Setup, click on "Mods", and select DF_Impcity

D. Type "map impcity" into the console (shift + ~ to open console)

Screenshots

I absolutely love it man. I wish we still had the motivation that was there years ago. I resurrected the DFMod for a short time, but it was just me and I only did it because I was betwen jobs. Given what you've done + the original 6 levels + some of the other things I have that never got released It could take us about 80-90% of the way.

That being said I'm old enough to see reality setting in and the fact that we don't have the time collectively to do it.

Still, I genuinely appreciate what you've done. If you ever get motivated again let me know. I still have the source to the levels, and only two are in any sort of barely-started state, one of which was this one. I might get motivated myself

Thanks. So which were the 2 levels that you got started on? I saw your thread about DFMOD and the screenshots and it looked like you had done a whole lot more than that!

The only other level that I have an interest in re-creating is the Fuel Station. Jabba's Ship really deserves to be made, but I lack the interest.

If you're willing to let me look at your .map files, I'd love to see them. I'm more than happy to share my .map files with you too. The Robotics one is really quite rudimentary, it would need a fair amount of work to make it as nice looking as the 6 maps in DFMOD.

I agree the job will never be properly finished, but it's fun anyway.

I worked on Ramsees Hed I think it was (level 7) and also did a poor take on Ice Station Beta. It's not awful, but yours is much better. I also did a lot of work on Jabba's Ship, but in the end I decided to work sequentially on levels. I ended up getting burnt out a few years ago, not being really comfortable with using Radiant.

Whatever level 13 was it was pretty much done geometry-wise. It's the Star Destroyer one I think. I got a build from an older team member. There was also someone on the JKHub Discord that streamed a near-complete Nar Shaddaa they'd done. Dunno if they're on here or not.

There are a few things about Radiant that are infuriating!

Yeah level 13 was the Executor. I was never impressed with that level in the original DF game, it stuck out as poorly done compared to all the others. I recall seeing that quite a lot of Jabba's ship had been constructed by the DFMOD team  -- did you build on top of their work?

I think I have the near completed Executor level that someone redid.  It was pretty impressive.  Most of the old teams files are stored away on one my hard drives somewhere.  Going to check out these maps though.  Been craving to play this again.
