Okay, so heres your chance to put your two cents. If there was one(and only one) thing you could change about Jedi Academy, what would it be? Try to be as specific as you can in answering. Have fun.:D

customization, they didn't have enough playermodel customization, i mean, look at galaxies and some other games, they couldve had something like, like, like galaxies :D where you have stuff like hair and nose protrution and all that good stuff, and, it would be hard, but, they could have a voice detection like microsoft narrator (witch, somehow pronounces everything you type) so you can change your name.

Rid of threads like these and people complaining, "omg q3 engine sux0rz1!!11" and "omg not enuff playar combos for my RPG clan!!1" and "omg raven r noob patch teh game ragdoll sux!!" etc

Oh wait, that's not a problem with JA. Still...

I'd like a squelch feature for chat in MP. Allow us to customize a text file of words we find offensive and the game would 'automagically' put a client using them on ignore. (Personally I'd prefer they got a good beat-down and a melted hard drive, but I'd settle for ignore.) :)

If you're honestly complaining about katas, I respectfully suggest you take a closer look at your definition of "n00b." ;)

Hmm... More maps... Or BETTER maps, it feels like they tried to hard with the current ones. Or add new places in the current ones, perhaps.

Besides, new maps are coming in a patch, I can't guarantee it will be the next one though.

maybe this can be done and I havent figured it out, but when you start a kata, it plays out til it's finished, I wished you could change tack halfway through....

1) An anti-admin mod patch that freezes your game the second you try to run admin mods or connect to a hacked server using admin mods.

2) An anti-whining patch that scans for words like "lamer, saber down, noob, bow" etc. and bans any player using them for 20 minutes from all servers.

Certainly, when the next Jedi Knight games comes out with a new engine, etc., I will be first in line to get it :)

Totally improved bots. I'm talking quality bot routes for all gametypes and maps. Unique bot personalities for each model (and how about a random "custom jedi" bot option?).

Make 'em as smart and useful as the ones in Unreal Tournament, one's that follow orders given by the team leader.

Oh, and make them able to use vehicles too.

JediLurker
10-31-2003, 05:51 PM
Well, Kurgan's is the one I would have picked. To avoid repeating, though, here's another.

Either an extended SP campaign(more missions after you've beaten Tavion) or the choice between light\dark being made much earlier. I'd like to actually play out my choice a bit more than Academy allows.

More customization options in the player model screen for race, hair color, gender, species, etc... specifically, a red hair option for women, and a beard option for men.

For SP...bring back the 'morality scale' along with NPCs...so your actions in the game gradually determine your Force Path. If you kill NPCs you go to the Dark Side, if you save them, you go to the Light Side.

For MP - improved net code, particularly for the Siege mode. If I can play with 'acceptable' (slight) lag on an Enemy Territory server with 60 other players...why do some JA Siege servers with just 8 players grind to a halt? The Enemy Territory maps are huge (and some quite complex), and there's a lot of action going on all the time - and it too is based on the Q3 tech with modifications.

I just can't understand why Siege is so laggy on many servers...and why just one or two people with a high ping can bring the server to it's knees...

A feature like punk buster, but instead of scanning for hacks, it detects and auto-kicks star wars nerds.

Banned cvars:

Any text chat on the part of the client involving the following phrases will result in an auto-kick:

lamer
spammer
needs to be more movie like
honor
force is gay
guns are for noobs




this was just a joke, don't get your chewbacca panties in a bunch.




serious though, for SP... LONGER, MUCH LONGER.

SP was way too damn short, I am a SP noob and if it only takes me a few hours to breeze through it, you know it's too easy/short.

I definitely agree with more Siege maps...but I too like Korriban as much as Desert and Hoth. Well...maybe not quite as much, but I think it's fine. ;)

I really hope Raven (or even someone else like Splash Damage) make some Siege maps to add in a bonus pack. Because at the moment the mod community doesn't seem to be doing anything related to Siege, which is a shame IMHO.

Siege has the potential to be a long-lasting MP game, if it's properly supported.

ROFL

Back to topic, i would have loved more taunt options. Why did they disabled bow, meditate and the others in ffa? i didnt used them in 1.02 so i wanted to use them in JA (besides duel servers). And some jk2 taunts are gone, desann, lando, etc.
So, more taunts and the option to enable/disable them in ffa.

I hope that comes in the patch.

You sound like a dedicated rpg'er. I'm shocked that kurgan could contemplate banning a genuine fan for saying he likes the game!

As for changing things. well, I would change the wookie skin. From Return of the Jedi, after replaying the chewbacca scenes several times (37 actaully) and measuring his body sizes, I have concluded that the JA wookie skin butt is far too small. It needs widening and firming up a little, not too big of course, but to around the size of a medium/small gala melon. Obviously the wookie butt needs to be a lot lot hairier to be in keeping with star wars.
I just adore chewbacca's (gun) pouch, but admittedly his hair is just too frizzy. It needs a good blowdrying, perhaps a little frizzease (by Jon Freeda).
This obvious bug really ruins my gameplay. I can't bear to see small bald wookie butts. Fix Please.

That depends on your point of view. :)

From where I stand all the major changes can be counted on one hand, but I respect the fact that some people don't feel the way I do.

It just seems to me that the "hottest" topic atm. is about how sabers are either too powerful or nerfed to the point of uselessness and not about how cool Siege or Power Duel is. :cool:

Most people, I think, are basing their opinions that sabers are unbalanced or nerfed because they probrally played JO, either that or there just jumping on an overly full bandwagon.
Otherwise why would you come to an assumption that something should be one way when you have no experience of how it has been in the past. These arguments/topics are one in the same thing basically, one stems from another, In a way.
Your right, mostly if not all is in the eye of the beholder.

siege rocks :thumbs1:

Duel would be cool (sorry) if there were servers out there that ran default settings.

staff is not overpowered nor is dual...but to each his own.
