  1. You mean you don't want to run around as a turkey in JKA? It's already a feature of this new software (called databases), we just never got around to moving everything over because it's going to be a massive pain. There isn't a conversion tool that will make it automatic, we'll have to manually copy and paste things over. But it will be worth it in the end I think.

    Create a shortcut to Jedi Academy MP (or OpenJK or whatever client you use) and right click the new shortcut and add this to the Target path: +set fs_game "japlus"
  3. I would love if EternalJK was on JKHub, but Bucky specifically didn’t want it on here for some reason when I had asked him a couple years ago. No idea why. JK2 is another story. It’s another issue with that group of people not interested. They made their own community (JK2.info) and have made it clear they don’t feel the need to be here. Not all, but a lot of them did when I had asked. All of that is up to those people though. I’ve done a couple campaigns going around to get people to get more involved and get feedback and I usually get the same responses along the lines of them not seeing the point. For mods, I really don’t get it, other than not abiding to our rules I suppose. Also, the whole issue with clans and players not spending time here is kind of a lost cause nowadays. That’s why I want to kind of switch gears with our mission statement and not try to force people to talk on this forum if they have nothing to contribute other than memes and spam (which we had a big issue with when we had those sections of the forum). Focusing on mod-related things and a wiki/tutorial/database is going to be our best bet going forward I think. The plan is to at least just make it easy to sign up for an account with a Discord account. Anything further may be a more complicated process that we’d need to team up with the JKC server on, and would be a further out project than this redesign. TBD. We will most likely go back to the previous rules we had that allow ports under certain stipulations, but we will post about those changes. That might happen before this redesign. The current rules were kind of set out of my control, I wasn’t a fan of changing what I had set before, but it wasn’t necessarily my decision.
  4. The current wiki is technically like this already. Anyone can make an account and edit things. The issue is that it's a separate account from the forum account, and traditional wikis are a pain to deal with or learn at all. If it's not tied to JKHub, that's outside this conversation. Anyone can make a wiki on the various wiki hosts out there. If a group wants to make one outside of JKHub and it ends up being better than something we do, I would love that. If people don't want a wiki here, I will gladly remove it, as long as there is a suitable replacement out there. EDIT: I should clarify, this feature is built into this forum software, it's going to be a matter of getting it set up and transferring existing wiki pages to it.
  5. So a couple years back, we had been teasing JKHub 2.0 for awhile, saying it would be more modern, include more features, and include a complete redesign. We managed to upgrade to the modern version of the software with some bumps along the way, but with Caelum's absence shortly thereafter, not much was done past that. I have polished some things here and there, but our main goal was to make the new software feel as much like the old one as possible while also including the smoothness and features of the new one, in order to keep people that hate change to slowly ease into it (and let's be honest, that applies to most people here). However, the actual redesign is still coming, and I'm now in the process of planning it with some help with the other staff. We discussed some things we'd like to see done, but I want to know what you guys think. What are some features you'd like to see on JKHub that either you miss from our past or just think are needed? Keep in mind the current climate though. The population of the Jedi Knight community is quite small. Asking for weekly or even monthly contests isn't going to happen, but we will be doing more contests. Or asking for more news posts isn't happening either. One big change (which I've already alluded to in the current design) is not making news posts so prominently displayed. There was a point where we didn't have a news post in over a year and it just makes us look inactive. News posts will still happen, but they won't be the focus of this website going forward. We want to focus on what we do well: mod hosting, showcasing, and discussion. Obviously our file section has always been the focus, but we want newcomers to know that, and make it easy to find. We also want them to know where to go to find anything JK related, such as tutorials, walkthroughs, popular servers and clans, etc. So here's what is planned for sure so far: New design from top to bottom. The old theme will always be available for those that end up hating it. New home page with valuable info on who we are and what we offer Discord Integration (at least the ability to sign up with an account, further integration TBD) Rewards system for contests and other events (gives a badge or something on your profile) New wiki/tutorial system (unsure how this will work right now, but our wiki needs some love) Yes, more contests and mod features will be done (had to put it here for those that skimmed) Outside of those things, is there something you wish we would do or have? I'm putting this as a poll but I want actual responses more than votes.
  6. That feature is not available to moderators, you'll have to let me know what you want.
  7. I just checked your permissions and everything seems right. What are you trying to do exactly?
  8. Holy shit, it's @Kouen! JKFiles Uncut was legendary, this is gold! Thanks for sharing. I miss those JK3files days so much. Mod reviews were the greatest thing ever and I really wish JKHub had launched with that feature. I'll always appreciate what you guys did back then, especially goofy stuff like this!
  9. As far as I know there is no size limit, only format/sample rate/bitrate, etc. I did my best to list them out here:
  10. Not sure if “so many” is accurate but we did get a handful of good things. I considered doing this but like I keep saying, participation is so low for these contests that it makes it hard to justify bothering with them. I also have no idea how much the community is watching the show. Most people here hate anything in the Disney canon. I may consider it if people show enough interest.
  11. If that's the case then it's odd they would bother referencing them, as it would draw a lot of unnecessary attention.
  12. Amazing. Curious that he used BF2 and JFO assets though. Hopefully he replaces those or else LF might change their mind on allowing this. Especially if EA complains.
  13. Nobody is going to show interest in something unless they know what it is. Any mapper interested in working on a project is already working on one of their own, most likely.
  14. Since it doesn't have an NPC file, you can still make it work without knowing any modding. Noodle was kind enough to provide the model folder and skin names in his file page description so you can use those to follow this tutorial: The model names are: /model female_trando/scarf /model female_trando/skirt /model female_trando/tech So if you follow the tutorial above knowing this info, an example of the command you'll want is this: playermodel female_trando model_default model_default model_default Or if you want one of the skins above you could replace the model_default with model_scarf or model_skirt, etc.
  15. Wow, that is impressive. More impressive that he got permission from Lucasflim.
  16. Alien: Isolation + DLC is free on Epic right now: https://www.epicgames.com/store/en-US/p/alien-isolation
  17. It can be done via entity modding and the music entry is in the first couple lines. Here's how to do the basics of decompiling a bsp to edit some limited info like that:
  18. Rearranged the forum a bit to have most used sections at the top. See changelog thread for full explanation.

      I still keep scrolling down though out of habit lol

  19. Well LucasArts hasn’t existed since 2014, so it makes sense they’d use LucasFilm for the branding. All of this stuff was licensed from LF. I’m keeping the blister pack mint since I don’t need to use it. Not only because of the digital copy on the drive, but I still have my old discs as well.
  20. Moved request to the request forum. Also removed the 10 post restriction since it clearly didn't work.
  21. Removed and merged a lot of unused subforums in the Mod Projects area. Spring cleaning!

      Good job 👍

  22. I don’t really think that’s the case. The forum has been losing activity slowly for years. I don’t think Discord is the cause of that, I think it’s just how the community has shrunk over the years. Sure people are still modding and you might see those conversations on Discord, more than here, but I think it’s more of a difference in quality of content. Getting instant help in a live chat is a valuable resource, but so is showcasing your content on a forum or writing a tutorial. I personally would rather see a thread with meaningful posts rather than a 80 page thread of posts that just say “cool!” or “lol” or other meaningless things like that. Though I have nostalgia for using forums that way, I prefer to use them to their strength in this day and age. You make all good points though and it’s all something I’ve been considering. I’ll have to discuss it further with the staff and JKC admins soon and see what we can do.
  23. None of us are admins on the JKCommunity server, so we really have no control over any of that. And making a new server would kind of defeat the purpose of JKC. I also don’t see how integration would be all that beneficial. Discord and forums are very different things and have their own strengths, weaknesses, and purposes. I love Discord but I don’t really think merging it into the forum would do anything other than clutter it with features that most people would probably not bother to use. It’s a good suggestion though, and I’m not dismissing it completely.
  24. Moved thread to requests forum. You can only have one mod show up in the saber menu, so you'll have to edit the menu to include all of the ones you have in one file via the tutorial above. That's just how the menus work, unfortunately. Some that I recommend for this list are: Galactic Warriors Saber Pack - Lightsabers & Melee - JKHub Kahn D'halaine's Lightsaber - Lightsabers & Melee - JKHub Stormtrooper Hilt + NPC - Lightsabers & Melee - JKHub Aegis - Lightsabers & Melee - JKHub Demp2 Lightsaber Hilt - Lightsabers & Melee - JKHub Scout Blaster Lightsaber Hilt - Lightsabers & Melee - JKHub FC1 Flechette Lightsaber Hilt - Lightsabers & Melee - JKHub E-11 Blaster Lightsaber Hilt - Lightsabers & Melee - JKHub Heavy Repeater Lightsaber Hilt - Lightsabers & Melee - JKHub Bryar Pistol Lightsaber Hilt - Lightsabers & Melee - JKHu Broken staff sabers for SP - Lightsabers & Melee - JKHub The High Republic Inspired Lightsaber Hilt - Lightsabers & Melee - JKHub JSS Curved Sith Lightsaber Hilt - Lightsabers & Melee - JKHub Naruto X Star Wars sabers - Lightsabers & Melee - JKHub Ralph McQuarrie's concept sabers (Luke and Vader) - Lightsabers & Melee - JKHub Black Saber (Baal saber) - Lightsabers & Melee - JKHub WeaponsHD - The Sith Pack - Lightsabers & Melee - JKHub Tutorial Lightsaber - Lightsabers & Melee - JKHub Kyrios hilt - Lightsabers & Melee - JKHub Evil Genius hilt - Lightsabers & Melee - JKHub Z3-Filus / The Zefilus mini-pack - Lightsabers & Melee - JKHub Wookiee Lightsaber Hilts - Lightsabers & Melee - JKHub Jaden Korr's Lightsaber - Lightsabers & Melee - JKHub Raven's Saber - Lightsabers & Melee - JKHub Kane's Lightsaber - Lightsabers & Melee - JKHub Obviously there's probably more but those are the ones I found that are unique designs not tied to a canon/legends character and fit decently well with the other JKA sabers and not too over the top designs. This actually got me kind of wanting to do this.
