Hi guys. Long time no see. Great to see that this project is still going ahead.
I still have to get Jedi Academy, but when I do I'd certainly like to get on board again.
Anyway, I'm still editing DF. Here are some shots of my latest work:


And just to let you all know, the 3rd installment of the Dark Tide series will be released on July 31st.

you did the droids and the AT-ST? just curious, i dont know nothing about the game and the engine

*lol* you should have done all this for JA!!!!
All the lighting end effects would be much better there :-p

It's great to see there are still some people mapping DF :-)

The droid was made by somebody else, the skins are taken from Jedi Knight. The same goes for the atst model.

Thanks for the info, the map is really freakin' cool, i love that engine, its like if you were in a drawing

Awesome work! I could just imagine what your levels would be like in the JA engine, if not an even superior graphics engine like the new Unreal 3 engine. When you get a copy of JA, do you plan to do your own editing/mapping for that too? If so, I can't wait to see what you can come up with. :D

Hi. Great to hear all the positice feedback. I actually just got a copy of Jedi Academy. I played the 3 level demo, and I really enjoyed it. Currently I'm playing the original game, but once I'm finished I'd like to get into JA editing.
I want to help out as a mapper on this project. I think it'd be an easy way to learn JA editing - to pick an already designed Dark Forces level, and just try to convert it int he best wat that I can. I'm thinking maybe a level Like Fuel Station Ergo.
Hopefully I'll get started at some point in the summer. Watch this space!

The only problem with that... *points to sig*. But there a few levels that right now don't have active mappers, most of them in the later half of the game.

that's no problem. I hadn't realised that the level had been taken. I'm willing to try any level that hasn't already been started.

First off it looks great. I wish I could come up with better more expressive words.

Second I've been wondering something for a while but had no idea who (oer perhaps "how" is a better word) to ask, since you're working with Dark Forces I figure you might know or know who or how to ask.

What's going on with Archangel III? Is it dead or simply slowly on its way?

Archangel III - probably the longest awaited custom mission in any game. It was originally scheduled for a 97 release. This particular subject was raised recently over at DF-21. I'll let you read the post yourself:
