Holiday Mod Contest 2022
Everyone been nice, with a pinch of naughty this year?
It's been quite awhile since we've done a end of year holiday or Christmas event around here, mostly due to lack of activity. We used to do Secret Santa events but that requires a lot of participants and many great mods made for them don't end up getting released, so we don't really do that anymore. But since Christmas is my personal favorite holiday and season, we're going for it.
I figured we can keep the mod contest train going, and take a stop through Christmas town! Of course this isn't discriminatory against any end-of-the-year holidays, this can include Christmas, New Years, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, St. Lucy, Las Posadas, St. Nicholas, Omisoka, Boxing Day, and any others that I forgot. If your culture celebrates it in December-ish, it qualifies.
- All submissions must be Christmas or other end-of-year holiday themed (Santa, gifts, snow, reindeer, menorahs, dreidels, kinaras, evergreen trees with lights, etc.)
- You can only enter your own creations.
- You may enter more than one mod.
- 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.
- Mods can be for Jedi Academy and/or Jedi Outcast. We will assume mods are for JKA unless specified otherwise.
- The deadline for submitting content is December 28, 2022, after which a poll will be opened.
- The poll will be closed by the end of day January 1st, 2023.
You can view the many Holiday related mods that have been tagged at the link here. For other inspiration take a look at the holiday events that some big live service games put on like Call of Duty (Krampus event in Vanguard/Warzone last year was big), Fortnite, etc.
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. After the contest is over, we will move the mods to their respective categories.
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 festive season!
It was a very close call between me and @MagSul despite so few votes overall, but Mag pulled ahead and is declared the WINNER OF THE HOLIDAY MOD CONTEST 2022!
His mod Kyle's Holiday Afternoon is a charming little mod that I personally voted for, so I'm glad to see it win! Seeing Kyle in a Christmas Sweater getting pummeled by snowballs is something everyone needed, for sure.
Congrats and well done to the other contestants! Hope everyone had a safe and happy holiday season, and welcome to 2023! Jedi Academy turns 20 this year, so we have some exciting things planned!
