Halloween Mod Contest '22
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! 🎃

Banner Contest Winners!
The winners have been chosen! I said I may end up choosing more than one if we got some good ones I really liked, and that definitely happened. Thank you to all of the artists that submitted. Even if you didn't technically win, I may still use your work for other things, so you may win in some small way anyway.

Keep in mind the banner art will be changed periodically so if you don't see yours in there now, your art will have its turn. 🙂

The two main winners are @ZelZel and @BenSlzak for the below two entries!


Here are the rest of the submissions if you'd like to see the others. They are all really great and I'm excited to have some good material for banners, social posts, etc. going forward!

Hopefully this was a nice little break from the usual mod contests and allowed for the resident artists to flex a little. We will definitely have more of these types of contests! More art makes the world beautiful. 🖌️

What 3D modeling application do you use for JKO/JKA?
Modeling 3D assets has become more and more mainstream since Jedi Outcast and Academy came out. It used to be an obscure talent only a handful of modders could do well. Nowadays, more and more people are picking up 3D modeling as a hobby or full career. There are many tools out there to shape, mold, and sculpt in a 3D space.

Which one do you use primarily for Jedi Outcast or Jedi Academy mods?

[Released] JKGalaxies 1.3.23 Beta
We're more than halfway through another year and with it a new set of features is coming to Jedi Knight Galaxies with version 1.3.23.  You can test the new beta by going to the download page here and downloading the Test release.  A subsequent patch will likely be made available after a few weeks of play testing, but we hope to move our focus onto development of the next major milestone v1.4 (yep that's lightsabers!).  You can find a list of full patch notes here.

Banner Artwork Contest
Hey folks, a new contest has been long overdue, I know. I meant to start this one up shortly after the last one but too many things took my attention away. I have way too many hobbies to keep up with. 😅 No summer themed contest this year, but that could be up to you depending on your submission.

Everyone likes mod contests but sometimes it’s fun to mix it up and try something different. We have a decent number of in-game photographers, digital artists, and lots of creative people that could make this one really cool.

Essentially this is a contest for who can make the best Jedi Knight-related poster/banner for JKHub. I’ve been wanting something really nice and flashy looking to use for the front page and for social media accounts, and I made one really quick back when we launched the new theme. I can probably spend a lot more time on making a better one, but I figured it would be much better to involve the community.

This isn’t just to win and get the award badge on your profile. This will be the new banner on the front page of JKHub in place of the existing one and will be used on social media.

So what qualifies as a banner?

An image in PNG or PSD format.
Dimensions at minimum 3200px X 2000px with 72ppi
Aspect ratio of 16:10.
If you include text, you must also include a textless version.
If you include a signature, make it unobtrusive but still legible.
Must be related to the Jedi Knight series (particularly Outcast & Academy), including characters, locations, weapons, items, etc.
Multiple entries are allowed.
Additional orientations are allowed, but a horizontal 16:10 is required.
Upload in a ZIP file to ensure no unnecessary compression is added anywhere.
No pornographic or ultra violent subjects or content allowed.
Huge bonus points if you make a version for each major season of the year or holidays.
By submitting to this contest, you are fully aware that your art will be used by us, for JKHub. Full credit to you will be given when and where possible.

Jedi Academy: Enhanced new version released
Jedi Academy: Enhanced is a mod for Jedi Academy Single Player which adds features and improvements to the core experience of the base game like RGB sabers, saber customization, saber holstering, new force powers, and much more.

This is for new or old players who want to play through the single player story of Jedi Academy with some enhancements and new features without completely overhauling the core vision of the game.

Credit goes to redsaurus who has single-handedly put in tons of code work and implementation, as well as the creators of the other content like Kahn's UltimateWeapons, Ashura's DL-44, Plasma's lightsabers, therfiles' camSP, and more (mentioned in readme and file page).

Forgotten_City
I made this map purely for my own personal passion for Final Fantasy 7. The map is based on a location in FF7 that is infamous in gaming history but that’s going down spoiler territory so anyone who has played the original FF7 should recognize this location pretty quick. I took a long break from mapping due to college classes and thought making something small would be a great way to get a refresher in mapping.

Map Features:
Buttons:
Four buttons clearly marked allow for changing the main fighting area to change.
1: Spectator stands
2: Wall
3: Pilon
4: Overhead cross

Jedi Knight games free for Prime Day
Jedi Outcast, Jedi Academy, and Republic Commando are free on Amazon Games for Prime Day today if anyone is interested. That means you need the Amazon Games launcher to install and play it. Not a big deal in my opinion but I know a lot of people get pissy about that for whatever reason.

https://gaming.amazon.com/home

Mass Effect Legendary Edition as well, and that one is redeemable on Origin.

Inquisitor Lightsaber Spinning
June was a month of quality control, and many fixes. NEW CHARACTERS, MENU OVERHAULS, MAP OVERHAULS, OTHER IMPROVEMENTS, THE INQUISITOR LIGHTSABER. The video you'll view is of a test model, and unfortunately we have not been able to progress with this since this video was uploaded. I will attempt to pursue other avenues, but fortunately we have broken new ground and made the Inquisitor lightsaber able to spin. I can't promise at this time if this feature will be in the next update, but this has proven that such a thing is possible.

May the Fourth Game Sales
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.

Underworld Mod Contest Winners
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 in the Underworld Mod Contest!
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?

Jedi Outcast 20th Anniversary Developer Retrospective
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!

Holonews Studio
I think this is my first ever public release of a map. Welcome to the Galactic Beat Holonews Studio, deep in the entertainment district of Coruscant. Galactic Beat is the cores premier evening show, a blend of news, entertainment, sport and even cooking! This map was intended to be bigger and feature more, but figure its best to release something than nothing at all.

Jedi Starfighter Racing Map
Map made by Gnost

Basically this is a huge spaceship racing map that allow max 6 players to spawn a jedi starfighter and race with it.

It has 2 different circuits, a short (1min) and a long one (2min) that can be changed through a button.

Known bugs: Sometimes after using a spaceship, player movement seems bugged. It can be fixed by using a spaceship again or just do /reconnect.

 

Event example below:

*It depends on the number of players attending.

Progress Report: February 2022
We have a good bit going on, but most of it I can't even discuss at the moment.

CHARACTER FIXES

In the middle of February, we released a fix addressing many (and I mean MANY) characters suffering from the invisible lightsaber bug. With the release of the hotfix, all known and easily fixed characters have been addressed, with Bossk currently the only character we are aware of with the invisible lightsaber bug.

Furthermore, we have begun steps to fix or add soundsets for many other characters currently missing them. Presently, Taron Malicos and the Sith Emperor Vitiate have been addressed and will have all-new soundsets when we release. Other characters we're currently looking into are Arcann/Thexan, Valkorion, and Vaylin.

MISSIONS

The last several progress reports, we've reported on new missions being developed. What is the news behind them? I unfortunately cannot provide updates. Operation: Knightfall, Deathstar Rescue are currently blocked due to several factors. 2 other duel missions currently in development are nearing completion, but again are facing blockers. We're looking into resolving these this month, but I cannot provide any other comments regarding the missions at this time.

One thing I can say however is that with our last update, we have snuck in our next April Fools prank, in fact after some engine modifications, I am excited to say that every April Fools will have a recurring event. We'll reveal more details in the next progress report.

NEW MAPS

Our mapper Lwkill has made several new maps which should be available in the next update.

Episode I Naboo Swamp


Jedi Trial Arena (Obi-Wan game)


Jedi Training (Obi-Wan game)


Gardens of Theed (Episode I Game)


Episode I Naboo Palace (Outside)


Theed Streets (Episode I Game)


CONCLUSION

It's not a lot, but such is the way of things after releasing an update (or two this month alone). There are other things we're working on right now, but given the early stages of everything, I'm not comfortable to discuss anything else we're currently working on.

We also have a small community feedback going on, please consider filling this out so you can help steer this mod in the right direction.

https://forms.gle/EcjS5pzW8NrjvoL77

Thank you all for following the development of Star Wars: Galactic Legacy, and may the Force be with you.
