This mod fixes the base lightsabers to be a bit higher in the hand. If you notice, all of them are held very low in the game, it looks unnatural. All single hilts are affected, including Luke's, Desann's, and the Reborn hilt, but not Kyle's hilt, as it wasn't needed. Staff hilts were fine as well.
See the pictures attached.
Hopefully no bugs with animations or anything like that.
I'm surprised this wasn't done before, as this has bothered me for years.
This mod gives you the freedom of changing your player character and lightsaber anytime in single player. I've added dual and staff. I've added red saber color.
Open up the console and type:
bind o uimenu ingamecharactermenu
Replace "o" with the key you want to press to bring the menu up. I made mine O just as an example.
Of course there are some issues, like rocking the staff saber and single saber together to make a dual stance. It screws up the animations.
Pair with my Prequel Music Replacement for BEST results!
The Prequel Conversion mod will do exactly that: convert the Single Player campaign story and experience into that of the prequel Star Wars movies (Episodes I, II, and III). This includes replacing various characters to those in the movies. A list will be given below to reveal what is replaced:
- Trade Federation Battledroids (with corresponding rank colors):Stormtroopers, Imperials, Snowtroopers
- Super Battledroids: Imperials, Rocket Troopers, Stormtrooper Commander, Saboteur
- Droidekas: Hazardtroopers, Assassin Droids
- Maganaguards with Electrostaff: Cultists
- Jango Fett: Boba Fett
- Nute Gunray: Racto (the guy on Coruscant who's making illegal droids)
- Wat Tambor: Rax (the fat Imperial who chases Jaden for sport)
- Clone troopers (Mark II): Rebel, Wedge
- E-5 Blaster Rifle (Battledroid blaster): E-11 Blaster Rifle (Stormtrooper blaster)
- KiSteer 1284 sniper rifle (Zam Wessel's rifle): Tenloss Projectile Sniper Rifle
- DC-15A Repeating Blaster (Clone Assault Blaster): Imperial Repeater
- Hailfire droid: AT-ST
- Republic Gunship/ARC-170 Starfighter: X-Wing (Cinematic/Vehicle)
- Jedi Starfighter (Mark II): Z-95
- Vulture Droid Starfighter: TIE Fighter
- Trifighter/Soulless One (Grievous' Starfighter): TIE Bomber
- Blaster pistol: from yellow to red
- Repeater: from yellow and round to blue and normal looking
- Turrets: yellow to red
- Nute Gunray has a brand new voice, thanks to a friend who is an excellent voice actor.
- Wat Tambor has Rax's voice but with effects to make it sound more like his.
- Dialogue from Jaden is changed to say Jango in instead of Boba
- Stormtrooper conversations are changed to droid conversations. I had to think, "What would droids talk about?"
- Cultist conversations with each other and with Alora are now more "magnaguard" sounding. I did the best I could.
- Rebel/Wedge dialogue is filtered to sound like it's from a Clone trooper helmet.
- Dialogue that mentions the Empire or Stormtroopers has either been changed to say droids or just removed with context in tact
- Levelshots updated to reflect various changes (mostly the vehicles)
- All subtitles and menus edited to remove all mention of Imperial/Empire/Stormtroopers and to reflect dialogue changes
- Menus and HUD changed to reflect new weapons.
- The Super Battledroid uses it's own animations thanks to the MBII team. It also uses the old bryar slot that isn't used in JA.
- All scripting issues were resolved all thanks to therfiles at JKHub. He was oh so very helpful.
This is a quite large mod that I started quite a long time ago with the original release of my "Battledroid SP" mod. I took a long break from modding and returned to work on this mod. It is not quite finished, as it will become a slightly larger mod. This is only version 1. Version 2 might come before I merge this into something slightly bigger eventually. The majority of the content in this mod is not mine at all. I merely combined a lot of pre-existing material from other authors to make this. That made it easier and definitely better, as my work would not be anywhere near as good, but I still worked really hard on this in all other ways. FOR BEST RESULTS: Play with maximum dismemberment. An autoexec.cfg is included with the necessary settings for this. It's the only way to do it in JA SP.
- Most are unavoidable unfortunately, but aren't really major.
- The Droidekas use the emplaced gun effects, so when using a turret, it will sound like the Droideka gun sounds.
- The plot still doesn't make sense, due to the main characters like Luke and Kyle still being involved. Obviously this doesn't make sense canonically and historically. The next version will fix this. There is no interference with Multiplayer as far as I can tell. I don't play it, so let me know if there are any issues.
I hope to continue this project even further, replacing the main characters as best as I can, complete with voices to match the characters. My plan is to replace Luke with Mace Windu, Kyle with Obi-Wan, and Alora with Grievous. I might replace Tavion with Dooku, but I'm not sure yet. Other details will be revealed and discussed on JKHub.
- Prophet and Major Clod for the Battledroid model. It's so old, yet it's the best model of a battledroid. Good times!
- Movie Battles II team - TK231 for his effects (Blue blaster, droideka, etc) - Duncan_10158 for the Droideka and Hailfire -
and whoever was the author of the SBD and it's skeleton/animations - the E-5 blaster -
- Pahricida for the DC-15A rifle
- Manquesa for the Jedi Starfighter model
- Majin Revan/Hatrus for the Droid Starfighter/Vulture droid
- Inyri for the Trifighter model
- Minilogoguy18 for the ARC-170 star fighter
- Mars Marshall for the Gunship, Magnaguard, Jango Fett, Clone trooper, and Zam rifle models
- Kurtis 'KMan' Smith/Psyk0Sith for the Wat Tambor model
- Wytchking/Wector for the Nute Gunray model
- therfiles for his butt-saving help with scripting fixes and being helpful with suggestions and testing
- Everyone at JKHub that is being helpful with suggestions and help with my endless thread making in the assistance forum
Windows: Put the pk3 in your base folder found in Program Files/Lucasarts/Star Wars Jedi Knight Jedi Academy/Gametdata/base/
Mac: Either in the app base folder (right click, show contents), or in user/library/containers/com.aspyr.jediacademy.appstore/data/library/application support/jedi academy/base
The autoexec.cfg goes in the base folder as well.
This is a mod that updates the chat icon in multiplayer to be of higher quality and animated. I was tired of seeing a really ugly pixelated one, and it was about time for an update. I used Ruxith and SiLink's animation shader for the animated dots. All credit goes to them.
One thing I noticed was that there were no hilt packs on JKHub. There were a bunch on JK3Files, but none were uploaded here. I figured I should combine the best ones.
This mod's goal is to bring together the best lightsaber hilts that have been made for JK2 and JA and make them easily accessible in the SP menu and in the game in general. I take no credit for any of these models or skins, although I did tweak a couple of them a bit.
Hilts included are as follows:
Anakin (Episode III)
Anakin (Episode II)
Obi-Wan (Episode I & II)
Obi-Wan (Episode III)
Obi-Wan (Episode IV)
Darth Vader (Episode IV & V)
Darth Vader (Episode VI)
Luke (Episode VI)
Darth Maul (damaged)
The shader for the Luke model is a little wonky in the menu but looks fine ingame.
This is also compatible with my Ingame Character & Saber Menus.
Hapslash, Trauma Sensei, Broken Hope, Revan Dark, and Khaliban
This is a single player mod that completely changes Rosh to be a Rodian. His model is now a Rodian but with Rosh's body. His outfit was recolored to better blend with his new skin color. All of Rosh's dialogue was changed to Rodian dialogue from KOTOR. A couple other minimal changes.
Make sure you have subtitles on for all dialogue. To do that, open the console (SHIFT + ~) and type /g_subtitles 1
If you hate Rosh, this actually drastically makes him more pleasant of a character. His voice is different. His image is different. Your eyes and ears will no longer bleed because he's on the screen!
-===- Known Bugs -===-
Some dialogue might slightly be too long or too short. None should be too drastic. If anything, it'll show that Kyle and Jaden are tired of hearing Rosh open his mouth.
This is my depiction of Luke in Jedi Master robes. There have been a lot of requests floating around over the years asking for this, and it was done with the default JA model, but using the Toshi model would be a much better and accurate choice. This one isn't perfect, but I think it turned out pretty good.
To use in SP:
npc spawn master_luke
npc spawn master_luke_robe
npc spawn master_luke_hood
Toshi for the model and original textures. Khaliban for the hilt.
This is a (very) simple reskin of the Porkins model from MB2 and Kyle head to give the appearance of Santa Claus. Comes with team colors, NPC support, and a candy cane saber made by LuckMoonBoy1, from JK2Files.
This was made for Omicron, for Secret Santa 2014. He allowed me to upload it for the rest of ya'll to use.
Lots of clipping and a missing part of the mesh of the left shoulder.
I didn't make any of the parts of the model, I merely put them together in Blender. The body is Porkins from MB2 (not sure the author), head is Kyle, and the hat is from MonGo's Santa model. The textures are mostly made from scratch and the original JKA textures. Was a quick job, as you can see.
This contains 2 new additions to the default Lando model, giving him the appearance from Episode 5 and 6, with his capes included. I made this over 2 years ago now and kept forgetting to release it. It was for the Star Wars Saga mod.
For MP, the skins replace the team color skins. So the ESB skin is team blue, ROTJ is red.
For SP, there is NPC support:
Or to spawn him:
/npc spawn lando_esb
/npc spawn lando_rotj
This is small duel map set in a courtyard in the Naboo capital city of Theed. There is a button on the middle balcony to reveal a duel platform, surrounded by a pit, to keep the duels interesting. There is room on the sides to use this map in FFA mode as well.
Bug: There is a timer on the button, which means you can't push it over and over, to avoid people spamming while other are dueling on the platform. So if the button doesn't work right after you use it, wait about 10 seconds.
This was a map made for a specific king of the hill type of event in my clan. The premise is everyone lines up by the main door in a single file line and the two people in the front of the line duel on the platform. First person to get cut by a saber must go back to the line, and the next person enters to challenge the survivor. Last person standing wins. Feel free to use this idea on your own servers.
This is a reskin of the default JA Rodian model to make it look like Greedo from A New Hope. It's a simple reskin really. The model is already based off of Greedo, they only changed some minor things like colors. I couldn't change the shoes, as those are the main inaccuracy, but this is pretty close without remodeling.
I included an enemy NPC as well.
npc spawn greedo
I don't think there are any Greedo skins (none that I could find), most people use the default JA model for that, so I figured I would whip one up that made it a little more accurate.
The original Ladder level by JediNight that was made for Jedi Outcast.
I take no credit for any of this idea, map, or scripts. I merely included the necessary textures and files needed from Jedi Outcast to make it compatible with JA.
The original author could not be contacted in any way, as he never included his email in anything he released. I felt this needed to be uploaded to this site and made compatible with JA.
The Ladder level is a Single Player map that features a "wave" system. After killing the first enemy, two appear. Then 3. Then 2 and a boss. So on and so on. It was made for Jedi Outcast, so it only features enemies from that game. Reborns, Shadowtroopers, Tavion, and Desann. It gets really intense if you try to do it without saving, without force powers, and especially with full dismemberment and saber realism on!
It's a great idea that keeps the boredom away and is a very underrated feature in the modding community. There needs to be more ladder maps!
This is a small collection of new fonts for the chat and various other areas of the game, such as the minimal hud and weapon selector. This is volume 2.
Fonts included in this pack:
They are a great way to spruce up the old game and give it a new look. Besides, the default chat font is awful.
Known Bugs: A couple alignment issues that are unavoidable as of now.
Release date: June 2008
This mod replaces different stances and animations in JA. This is version 2.0. Theres only a few changes. It will edit the following:
Normal standing animation replaced with the normal standing animation from Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic.
Medium saber stance replaced with the normal saber stance from KOTOR. Just a 1 frame stance so far. Might continue with the full animation some other time in another version.
Fast saber stance replaced with the stance Darth Revan uses when Bastila and other Jedi encounter him.
Strong saber stance replaced with Darth Malak's saber stance.
Dual sabers stance replaced to the one used in KOTOR.
Staff saber stance replaced with the staff stance in KOTOR
Choke/Grip animation replaced with a stance similar to the one in KOTOR. Not totally accurate but close.
Running with saber replaced with the normal running animation.
Running with dual saber replace with the normal running animation also. I thought that the defualt animation looked terrible. Like the player was shaking their hips back and forth. Looks a lot better even thought saber blade hits the ground sometimes.
This mod replaces all of the levelshots in JK2 with identical, higher quality ones. The default levelshots were borderline puke-inducing quality for tiny screens. In this day in age, we have huge monitors with huge resolutions. These I made still aren't the best quality, but at least now you can tell what is in the pictures.

NOTE: This currently only works in base. Not sure about other mods.
This is a mod that aims to freshen and soften the main menus of both SP and MP of Jedi Academy. I always felt like the sounds and music for the menu were extremely harsh. Especially if you're playing late at night, you fire up JKA and click Play--BEEP! Ow. Click Join Serv--BEEP!
New sounds add a more subtle feel to your menu experience.
Music track for MP switched with the Yavin Temple explore music from JK2. Very peaceful feel, reminds me of the Jedi Academy map.
Same music track added to the SP menu (previously no music played)
Server list now shows more servers at a time, making the font smaller. Before it was huge and only showed around 10 at a time.
New video plays in the main menu, just to give it something new.
Server info window is now grey, so it's easier to see black names
Hopefully more changes will happen later. This is the first release.
This was a mod I've had in my base for years but never shared it. Decided to work on it a bit more and release it. It's hard NOT to use it now.
Also, keep in mind this won't work with other main menu mods, for the most part, if they edit the actual menu.
This mod changes the desert skybox to look more like Tatooine, complete with two suns and a vast dune sea. The default one looks pretty bad, so this hopefully improves it a little. If you’re a stickler for detail of Star Wars canon, this mod is for you.
Originally made this as a request to add a second star to the sky but decided to improve the entire skybox and release it publicly.
The Desert skybox is used by other maps, so it’ll change those as well. One major one is t1_danger in single player. So it might look bad on there, but if you’re a MP player, it shouldn’t be a big deal.
This is yet another simple mod, requested by Penekowski. There are 3 very small maps, with one color for the whole room, making it easy to take screenshot to use in icon creating or other media. Or maybe just to test a skin out. There is a green, white, and grey map.
To get to the maps, choose one below:
The maps are bright, and the shaders used don't reflect light, to my knowledge. That's why you can run into a wall without realizing it.
Shout out to Penekowski for the idea
This is basically just OpenJK but with a few little features that I really wanted for my server. I wanted to have a basejka server with OpenJK's bug fixes and security, but also a few extra things that the OpenJK devs didn't think were fit to include in the master repository. Nothing changes the gameplay, these are just nice little features for a server to have, if you're not using a mod like JA+ or something.
Here's a list of all the features thus far:
----1.00----• All taunts are available in all game modes (meditate, gloat, flourish, etc)• Private duels now start with full health and shield, and can be changed via new cvars (g_duelStartHealth and g_duelStartArmor) - default is 100/25• Results of a private duel are displayed to all, with the remaining health of the winning player----1.01----• Added a cvar to toggle idle animations (personal annoyance of mine) - g_useIdleAnims 0----1.02----• restored the ability to use map glitches via dmflags 520----1.03----• Cheats are now toggled via rcon, enabling the use for anyone on the server - /rcon sv_cheats 1
All features of the master OpenJK repo are included in this as of this writing. If you want to compile the latest version of this and the most recent OpenJK commits, I will try my best to keep it fairly in sync with it.
This is also Linux only for now. If someone wants it for Windows or Mac, let me know. This is server-side only though, keep in mind.
If you want to test it out first, my clan's server runs it at /connect so.jk3.in
-===- Installation -===-
If you are running an OpenJK server (recommended), put the .so file in the base folder of your server, and run the new openjkded file like you normally would. If its a basejka server, same thing but run the new openjkded file instead of jampded file you used to.
This mod fixes the broken water wake shader in multiplayer, when the player or NPC is standing in water. Normally the shader works in vanilla SP but not in MP, but this will make it work in both. A GIF and video are included to show the difference. Before it was just a static image which looked quite bad.
I actually made this back in 2016 but completely forgot to release it.
The file has to be loaded first, even before the assets, so do not rename it. This is why it has a 0 in the name. In addition, the shader itself can't be renamed either.

PC: Extract the pk3(s) to the gamedata/base folder of your Jedi Academy directory.
Mac: Place in Applications/Jedi Academy/base folder
This is a reskin of DT's ESB Luke model to make it look like Luke from A New Hope. This is version 2.1, as version 1 was made with Toshi's ROTJ model. I kept the poncho version that used Toshi's model because I know a lot of people liked that version. It also comes with a hilt. The original skin for the body was an old one made by Al McDonald. I edited it a little and made sure it looked good on this model.
It has team support and NPC support
npc spawn luke_anh
npc spawn luke_poncho
DT85 for the model. Toshi for the original head model and textures. Raven for the original body model. Al McDonald for the original body textures.
This mod removes all of the chat lines from bots. No more annoying and cheesy lines when you kill bots or when they get kills. I found it extremely annoying when playing with people and bots and it was extra work to differentiate between real people and bots. This removes that annoyance.
This will not work with any custom bots that you have in your base folder. This only works with the default bots that come with the game.
I know it's an extremely simple mod but it hadn't been done for JA yet and I've had this made for a long time for myself. I decided to share it.
This is a Halloween-themed map, created for the JKHub Halloween Contest 2016. It's very much incomplete. I didn't have time to spend too much time on it. There are some little secrets that you can find. The Use key is your friend (or enemy).
I may actually finish it later on. This does have everything it needs to be playable, and is available for FFA, TFFA, Duel, and Power Duel. It also has bot routes.
-===- Known Bugs -===-
Lots. Trees can be walked through. Probably some brush glitches here and there. Skybox is crap. Lots to fix.
Much love and thanks to Rooxon for creating all the cool models you see in the map, like the pumpkin, shovel, pickaxe, etc. I think his items turned out better than the map itself.
This is a reskin of DT's ESB Luke model. I thought it was a perfect opportunity to take advantage of because he used the default Jedi model and most JA models are very similar. It wasn't very hard but it's not perfect. The chest console isn't modeled so it doesn't look accurate. It's the best we'll get until a real model is made. It comes with a hilt like in my previous Luke skin packs.
There is team support and NPC support:
npc spawn luke_pilot
DT85 for the wonderful model. Toshi for the original head model and skin. ShadowX for the hilt that's included. And Raven for the Pilot textures.
Go here for DT's model!
