View Full Version : Ladder (maps)

I bet you know about a SP level for Jedi Outcast called "Ladder". In this level your mission was to fight against 54 reborns, Tavion and Desann.
So, I was wondering if you know about something similar for
Jedi Academy since I canīt fight with other humans bacause of my crappy 56k connection, and the bots AI is very funny but it dosenīt work for saber fighting.

Sorry if you donīt understand, I know I suck writting in english.

I think you can use the JK2 one for Jedi Academy.

Melee Mod includes a version of the Ladder, with metal edged and bludgeoning weapons and blood of course. ; )

Yeah, Zeus is pretty good up to that point.

IIRC the first ladder from JO works in JA without a problem. The Bespin JO ladder works to some extent, but there are scripting problems...

You can also just get any MP map, load it in SP and then say enter this into the console:

bind r npc spawn reborn

Press r 50 times whilst running and you have a fight on your hands! The JA SP saber combat system is a lot of fun, I've been doing this a lot whilst testing a few maps. The trouble with making a ladder map is you get a load of angry talk from about half the community, I think thats why we aren't seeing a stream of them.

Ladder maps are perfectly fine, it's just that they've pretty much been done to death.

Obviously making real single player campaigns take a lot more time, and while the Ladder map is definately fun, it's a pretty simple idea and has been done probably enough already.

I started off disliking them, but by the time I'd played all of them for JO, I'd come to appreciate their nuances a little. There were a lot of variations on the theme, like the cool Kyle's Nightmare style themed rooms of death. Hmmm, I'm almost tempted to make one for JA, despite the way they seem to be considered an unoriginal and tired format - there is only one other for JA.

I'm guessing Kyles Nightmare, Challenge in the Valley of the Jedi and X-Mas Ladder won't work very well as they featured a lot of (probabaly uncompatible in JA) scripting.
