I am studying some of the classic community made maps for JK O and have found some incredible ones, first one i will feature here is

Hoth: Imperial Base V3.0
THX_TK421
pk3 file:
http://www.filefront.com/13893223/ImpHothV3.pk3
Updated Link 12/31/2010

Story: Kyle is sent to investigate rumors about Imperial activity at the old supposedly abandoned Hoth base we all know and love, and indeed he finds some surprises indeed.

This is one of the most amazing maps I have seen yet for either JKO or JKA, it is brilliant, exciting, well scripted, lighting is superb, cinematic in feeling and has some of the best in map features i have ever seen. I don't want to spoil anyone, but there are some wonderful easter eggs to be found herein, if you look carefully there are some ancient rebel comm machines about, listen in and you may be surprised.

It is currently hosted by one community member and I have just been given permission by THX to submitt this Level Map to the online archives in his name and so will do so forewith.

I also have an update that the author shared with me, this map is doable on Stelath mode for much of it, and indeed you can do a great deal of it without weapons, as steath is enabled. This is a rare feature and one I look foward to replaying for to see.

the cut scenes are very well done including one at the end that is cimenatic production values and hints at a continuation...which i greatly hope for :)

this map dates from some years ago, but it holds its own with some of the finest current masters like Mercenary and others.

Anthony Piggot
Immersive Unique Atmospheric Masterpiece
http://www.massassi.net/levels/files/3057.shtml

Updating Post July 2011

This remarkable SP Map is a masterpiece of style and atmosphere, you travel to the world of Malastare looking for a lost Jedi Knight. This is a total immersion as the style and the character of this world is beautifully portrayed in the levels, and the way the story is told, you have unique colors and lighting and the overall feeling is wonderfully conveyed in many details, including wonderful custom work, spaceship, furnishings, a cantina with a live action Swoop Race on screen you can actually watch, live conversations among customers, and a thrilling plot that requires Mace to sleuth and fight his way thru. In the Read Me Anthony says he had hoped to develop the Map further, but for me, this is both a favorite and I think a classic example of how good and how well made a custom SP map can be.

This Map level has full and excellent voicing and custom cut scenes and many special features. I am very glad Anthony released this for us all. He also has some other excellent maps, he is one of our top map makers and an example for how complete an experience a good SP map can be.

Anthony also did these other excellent maps and levels:

Anthony also has authored an amazing mod in which you play as Darth Vader, with beautiful scenes, scripting and cut scenes, it is 99% completed and Anthony is looking at finishing it up. This mod is fully voiced and totally professional in quality.

Update: A while ago Anthony indicated he may take a look at the project and consider completion. We await events and certainly hope so.

ello =) ... new to forum !!
i have a n00b question :blush2:

after reading about Hoth : Imperial Base , i just had to download and have a try ,
only thing is .. it downloads as a pk3 (with no readme) and i can't seem to get it to work =/
i have put it in my base , and tried all sorts of ways to get it to load , to no avail :confused:

if someone here could be so kind as to provide me with some instruction ,
i would be most appreciative . :)

12-04-2008, 10:33 AM
once in game you have to bring down the console (~+shift)and type in
map imphoth_a
that should load the first map ,the 2nd will load once you finish the first.
hope that helps

vull
12-04-2008, 03:54 PM
thank you so much =)

it woulda been handy if that info were included in the review or ....somewhere !
i tried all sorts of combinations of map ImpHothV3 , map ImpHothV3.0 etc =/
but how stupid of me .... _a ... of course ... it makes perfect sense :confused:

but again ... thank you for your help .:D

Just a little hint: you can view the contents of a pk3 file with any zip tool or pakscape, and then just see what the maps in it are called (they're located inside the maps folder obviously, and have extension .bsp).

I agree, it is remarkable and beautifully done. I have hope that the author may, just may, continue work on this wonderful project that was only half done...for there was intended to be more of it.....and we may yet get to see the completion of this excellent work.

SP Map Set for Jedi Knight Outcast (JKO)
8 Custom Levels - Mods and Resources Included
78.1 MB
Download:
http://www.filefront.com/17728466/nemesisofkatarn.zip/

LivingDeadJedi is a master of both multipayer and singleplayer maps for JKO, and this map set is truly amazing. This set began as "Return of Tavion" but with the release of JKA the story line was changed a bit, and this wonderful level set was created. This is truly one of the great works so far for JKO.

You enter thru a beautiful cut scene into the Sky City of Bespin but a new Bespin we have not seen before with a whole new feel and lightness to it, beautifully created in

http://img99.imageshack.us/img99/5482/nemisisofkatarn2hn2.jpg

GREAT architecture and texturing. There is a custom main character and the details the unfold as you discover the story and advance into it are truly wonderful. The cutscenes are brilliantly done, of movie quality, and the dialog of the stormies and the other characters right on for its Star Wars humor and the way it moves the story along.

http://img7.imageshack.us/img7/3732/troopieschattingnok3sq2.jpg

you must move thru complex and beutifully rendered Sky city interiors, the detail everywhere is crafted with the hand of a master....

there is plenty of action

http://img17.imageshack.us/img17/1900/39531589hu3.jpg
and you are challenged by some very challenging movements you have to do, and tests and puzzles to solve.....

http://img230.imageshack.us/img230/3973/nemisisofkatarn1kl5.jpg

At one point you get to see the dinning room from the movie....and it seems very familar, this aids the immersion and really prepares you for the tour de force that follows...

http://img23.imageshack.us/img23/200/diningroom2ig9.jpg

the section you encounter early in the level set that really amazed me was a Mall, the Planet Mall, the architecture was splendid and the author has reallly let his imagination have free rein for there are not only challenges, fights and tasks, but you get to see some wonderful nuances, details, several cantinas that are very original, a real futuristic internet cafe, a use spaceship shop with some really funny models for sale....well, i wont spoil it, but you will really have fun....

http://img12.imageshack.us/img12/9232/67225373ew5.jpg

you find that there is more going on that your initial mission implied and you face dangers that you had not guessed at the start....

http://img16.imageshack.us/img16/4759/clonehallkc9.jpg

one aspect i really enjoyed for i love the ships of SW, was a chance to fight your way onto an fully functioning and realized Imperial Shuttle, with a fully detailed and manned Control Cabin, the first I have had a chance to examine at close range...and i had a chance to see the amazing detail lavished on every aspect of this great Level set....

http://img12.imageshack.us/img12/8434/62359077ri1.jpg

you get to see the famous paired air cars of the Sky city....

http://img16.imageshack.us/img16/7483/hangarxn7.jpg

and you move thru a series of local changes, from tunnel to sky way, from dazzling views of the huge sky city exterior to intricatly rendered and beautifully crafted interior spaces....

http://img8.imageshack.us/img8/6938/64039862vr7.jpg

.like this beautiful long Power Confluence Hallway.....where we had a chance to have a frank exchange of differing views with a Reborn....

http://img24.imageshack.us/img24/6461/powerhalljz9.jpg

another feature i really enjoy about this level set is the shift of chormatic theme as well as change of pace that the author achieves....this makes the progress thru the levels constantly new and interesting and keeps the player on his or her toes visually as well as involved in the game play...

http://img18.imageshack.us/img18/5834/bluehallvd2.jpg

this fine set of level is, I believe, one of the finest pieces of mod work for any of the SW games and is fully equal to if not better than the original game. You have the full effect: it starts with a text crawl and the theme music, the entire map set is framed with excellent totally professional cut scenes, fullly voiced and very well carried out, fine detailing in every aspect, full testing of the players skills and abilities and a thrilling and intriguing story line.

Some of the Climactic areas are just breath taking, as intended...and you can see the full scale that this game engine can achieve....nothing short of monumental in the hands of a master level maker....

http://img8.imageshack.us/img8/6589/bigroomqy0.jpg

and as always, all your choices...have consequences.... :)

http://img5.imageshack.us/img5/1989/bigholedw7.jpg

LivingDeadJedi has truly achieved great things with this level set, and I hope you will play it soon.

This, along with some of the other fine mods, maps and levels makes up really what I think of as JK3...and if you have the chance to play this level set, i know you will find much to amaze you, to appreciate and to enjoy.

Call me a fool, but I forgot where to save the files when downloading them to Outcast...

CrisG
01-30-2009, 12:37 AM
i put the files for this current mod right into the base folder (make sure to save your saves somehwere else if you put anything into the base)..but usually you put maps and mods into the GameData folder and run them as a mod or type in the map name using the console, you can open up the pk file to get the exact name if you need to or usually it is on a good comprehensive Read Me...or some map or mod packs come with a .bat to run them with.

ys good list there Ham, i am going to do all of them here soon :) Michael May is awesome, as is Dash Rendarwhich is by Mercenary, he is doing a new version of it for JKA, Escape from Takron Galton by Big Shirtless Ron is awesome, Imperial Base is one i have in my files, i will dig that out, thanks for the reminder....

another fine map for JKO by Mike May is Spice Mines on Kessel,

Fantastic overview of nemesis of katarn chris.and great screenshots by the way.
Nemesis,has been one of my favorites from JO because livingdeadjedi wanted to really create cloud city but not just that he wanted to really explore cloud city and in this mod it shows how much he loves cloud city.
having the mod bridge the gap between JO and JKA was also very brilliant on the part of LDJ.everything is top notch the skyboxes the map ,the attention to details such as when you start the map the skies around cloud city are blue when you reach the end they are orange telling you that time of day is different.also taking us not just to the locales in the films but also many we hadnt seen before.
great sp mod by LDJ,i think ill go play it right now,thanks chris and thank you LDJ!

This message has spoilers for the first level of Hoth: Imperial Base V3.0 so read only if you are through with the level.

I'm stuck playing the first level in Hoth: Imperial Base V3.0. I've been running around this level for the last 2 hours and can't get the door with the red light at the end of the first level to turn green. Is that screenshot of the TIE fighters from the first level or the second? I haven't been there yet. The farthest in the level I got was to the AT AT standing besides the big ball turret. I shot the AT AT head and made it explode. I went up the steps and into a door and killed some imps and found a secret area but couldn't find anything else to do in there. I sliced the AT AT controls that is beside where you're standing at the start of the level and the one that is beside an AT ST. I destroyed a pipe beside the elevator where the level starts and another panel that is up high on a catwalk. I've found 5 of 6 secret areas. I really need help on this level. I've been stuck on it longer than I want to tell.

jedimike2234
03-27-2009, 11:50 AM
ok ham yoyo,if you look at the first pic that chrisg posted you have to destroy that atats controls ,slice it twice and you should see a cutscene take over where you see 4 to 5 stormtroopers open the door and come through waiting for you on there side of the chasm.the cutscene plays the second the atats controls are destroyed and you are able to proceed.
hope that helps
also with the first atat,you have to really use force jump to get up underneath it similar to what luke did in the film and toss in 1 or 2 thermal dets into the small opeing,you should see a cutscene pretty much recreating the atats head exploding from empire.once you destroy the last atats head,this is optional you can fight a rebornboss on the atats head as well as some probe droids.

CrisG
03-27-2009, 02:41 PM
Mike has it right, that should get you thru that block :)
I had the same challenges myself and had to come back and work thru it again after a time out :)

it is worth the work, and as i mentioned, we have hopes the author will return and complete the story :)

Ham Yoyo
03-28-2009, 08:06 AM
Thank you for the help. I sliced the controls of the AT ATs in the first two screenshots but the heads are still intact. I didn't know I was supposed to destroy the heads. I should had figured it out after the third AT ATs head exploded after I shot it. I haven't seen any cutscenes yet. This is a great level set and I'm glad I finally get to move on to level 2 now that I know what to do.

Ham Yoyo
03-29-2009, 08:41 AM
My goodness! I finally figured the Hoth level out. But I didn't figure it out untill I started the whole level over again. I found out on the first 2 AT ATs you just need to slice the controls because you don't have thermal detonators yet. Then the third AT AT on my first time playing the level I shot the head with my stormtrooper rifle and the head exploded but the cutscene didn't show. So I was stuck for longer than I care to say and revisiting every room in the level. But on the second time through I forced jumped up the AT ATs belly but I still was stuck because I couldn't find the small opening. But I finally remembered that Luke Skywalker cut open something with his lightsaber in The Empire Strikes Back. So I pulled my lightsaber out and started hacking away untill I sliced through the grate. I threw 2 thermal detenators in it and I finally saw the cutscene I worked so hard and waited so long for.

I then went on to play level 2 and it was awesome. The next level I'm going to play is the new Nina level for JA.

jedimike2234
03-29-2009, 10:01 AM
um yeah i forgot to mention the little opening has a grate on it,although i just threw a thermal det at it,i had times when i threw the saber and it manages to break in and destroy the atat inside without the cutscene.
Or i just swing up with the saber.
but its good you finally made your way through,chrisg got in touch with the author about finishing up the level ,were still hoping he will.

the new nina mod Privateer,is just spectacular!the final level just blew me away!

It will be nice if the author will finish the level. He did a great job on them.

I played the first level of Privateer tonight. It was awesome. The secondary objectives were cool. I read that there was a Star Destroyer level in Privateer. It is probably the last level that blew you away. I am really looking forward to it.

It is great I'm enjoying 6 and 7 year old games like JO and JA so much. They are just so well done.

jedimike2234
03-30-2009, 10:26 AM
yes ham yoyo it was the star destroyer level,he nailed it!,what in my mind a star destroyers interior should look like.plus the whole sp mod had a Timmothy Zahn feeling to it,Zahn wrote some of the best star wars novels.In one of his last novels he had the 501st stormtrooper ,vaders fist,resurrected and it was cool how Larry Mcbruce captured that feeling.also there was a mod i found,where you play as clones in the jedi temple killing jedi,it was good and very disturbing because the bodies of the jedi and the dead dont disappear and the other part of that mod has you again as a clone with kiad mundi,this was a beta but still good if you dont have it let me know ill post the link,its not on filefront.

Download Imperial Hoth and put the pk3 file into the base folder of the game install...

Enter the game....then bring down the console by typing ~ and Shift at the same time and enter:

map imphoth_a and then press ~ to close the console ...

that should load the first map ,the 2nd will load once you finish the first.

There are ways to play JKO mods in JKA, do a forum search and you should come up with some info on it.

Welcome back, Chris. :) I'm glad to hear that you are feeling better. In case you might not have heard, Filefront did some re-vamping and the urls for member's pages no longer point to hosted.filefront.com, but to filefront.com/yourusername. Part of the new Filefront.

SP Map Set for Jedi Knight Outcast (JKO)
8 Custom Levels - Mods and Resources Included
78.1 MB
Download:
http://files.filefront.com/nemesisofkatarnrar/;13127301;/fileinfo.html

LivingDeadJedi is a master of both multipayer and singleplayer maps for JKO, and this map set is truly amazing. This set began as "Return of Tavion" but with the release of JKA the story line was changed a bit, and this wonderful level set was created. This is truly one of the great works so far for JKO.

You enter thru a beautiful cut scene into the Sky City of Bespin but a new Bespin we have not seen before with a whole new feel and lightness to it, beautifully created in

http://img99.imageshack.us/img99/5482/nemisisofkatarn2hn2.jpg

GREAT architecture and texturing. There is a custom main character and the details the unfold as you discover the story and advance into it are truly wonderful. The cutscenes are brilliantly done, of movie quality, and the dialog of the stormies and the other characters right on for its Star Wars humor and the way it moves the story along.

http://img7.imageshack.us/img7/3732/troopieschattingnok3sq2.jpg

you must move thru complex and beutifully rendered Sky city interiors, the detail everywhere is crafted with the hand of a master....

there is plenty of action

http://img17.imageshack.us/img17/1900/39531589hu3.jpg
and you are challenged by some very challenging movements you have to do, and tests and puzzles to solve.....

http://img230.imageshack.us/img230/3973/nemisisofkatarn1kl5.jpg

At one point you get to see the dinning room from the movie....and it seems very familar, this aids the immersion and really prepares you for the tour de force that follows...

http://img23.imageshack.us/img23/200/diningroom2ig9.jpg

the section you encounter early in the level set that really amazed me was a Mall, the Planet Mall, the architecture was splendid and the author has reallly let his imagination have free rein for there are not only challenges, fights and tasks, but you get to see some wonderful nuances, details, several cantinas that are very original, a real futuristic internet cafe, a use spaceship shop with some really funny models for sale....well, i wont spoil it, but you will really have fun....

http://img12.imageshack.us/img12/9232/67225373ew5.jpg

you find that there is more going on that your initial mission implied and you face dangers that you had not guessed at the start....

http://img16.imageshack.us/img16/4759/clonehallkc9.jpg

one aspect i really enjoyed for i love the ships of SW, was a chance to fight your way onto an fully functioning and realized Imperial Shuttle, with a fully detailed and manned Control Cabin, the first I have had a chance to examine at close range...and i had a chance to see the amazing detail lavished on every aspect of this great Level set....

http://img12.imageshack.us/img12/8434/62359077ri1.jpg

you get to see the famous paired air cars of the Sky city....

http://img16.imageshack.us/img16/7483/hangarxn7.jpg

and you move thru a series of local changes, from tunnel to sky way, from dazzling views of the huge sky city exterior to intricatly rendered and beautifully crafted interior spaces....

http://img8.imageshack.us/img8/6938/64039862vr7.jpg

.like this beautiful long Power Confluence Hallway.....where we had a chance to have a frank exchange of differing views with a Reborn....

http://img24.imageshack.us/img24/6461/powerhalljz9.jpg

another feature i really enjoy about this level set is the shift of chormatic theme as well as change of pace that the author achieves....this makes the progress thru the levels constantly new and interesting and keeps the player on his or her toes visually as well as involved in the game play...

http://img18.imageshack.us/img18/5834/bluehallvd2.jpg

this fine set of level is, I believe, one of the finest pieces of mod work for any of the SW games and is fully equal to if not better than the original game. You have the full effect: it starts with a text crawl and the theme music, the entire map set is framed with excellent totally professional cut scenes, fullly voiced and very well carried out, fine detailing in every aspect, full testing of the players skills and abilities and a thrilling and intriguing story line.

Some of the Climactic areas are just breath taking, as intended...and you can see the full scale that this game engine can achieve....nothing short of monumental in the hands of a master level maker....

http://img8.imageshack.us/img8/6589/bigroomqy0.jpg

and as always, all your choices...have consequences.... :)

http://img5.imageshack.us/img5/1989/bigholedw7.jpg

LivingDeadJedi has truly achieved great things with this level set, and I hope you will play it soon.

This, along with some of the other fine mods, maps and levels makes up really what I think of as JK3...and if you have the chance to play this level set, i know you will find much to amaze you, to appreciate and to enjoy.

the mods doesnt work. is there another link or can you send me the mod?

also guys, im kind of a noob to this. so can you help me with something? i have downloaded the sp_mustal_prequel mod and the readme says i have to put it into a .bat file? how do i do this. i originally put the file of the level into the base folder but when i open up the game, it doesnt work? HELP!

I have Nemesis Of Katarn on my file page at Filefront, been there since last April, sorry about that!!

Nemesis Of Katarn (http://www.filefront.com/13772438/nemesisofkatarn.rar)

As for the problem with the Mustal mod, I'll look into it and get back to you with the answer.

EDIT: Okay, I found where you found this one at (JK II Classic Files). I read the readme. No wonder you were confused. The person who wrote it didn't double-check what he wrote. Put the folder that was in the .zip file in the GameData folder only, not in GameData/base. And then click on the .bat file that is inside the folder. If it still refuses to load up, put the .bat file in GameData instead and it should start up (I hope). Let me know if you get it working.

These look amazing; I will give em a whirl soon.
I will try my hand at making one someday. But you gotta crawl before you can walk.

One issue I always disliked about this game is slow blaster bolt speed. I posted a thread about it (here http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?t=204335) where I link to another thread with some unique ideas on how to achieve this effect without doing anything illegal. But I've also been told it is possible to make a MP level behave like a SP one and since just about everything in MP is moddable, it makes sense to me that if I want fast bolts in a level I make, it should be such a MP-pretending-to-be-SP map.

So the question is: Do you SP mod masters know how to do this? I'm sure it's quite messy. . .

Ben.K
06-20-2010, 12:44 AM
i put the files for this current mod right into the base folder (make sure to save your saves somehwere else if you put anything into the base)..but usually you put maps and mods into the GameData folder and run them as a mod or type in the map name using the console, you can open up the pk file to get the exact name if you need to or usually it is on a good comprehensive Read Me...or some map or mod packs come with a .bat to run them with.




Er, call me a n00b, but why do I have to save elsewhere and how do I do this?

These look amazing please re-upload the files for us newbies!! :)

Is it possible when they have been downloaded to put them on disc, so it plays like a whole new game ie Jedi Outcast 2, it would be great if out of these new levels they became a whole new game?

I applogize for neglecting this thread ..i had an operation and have been in hospital and recovering since...and will try to get the links restored that are part of my level reviews here. There are amazing levels for both JKA and JKO and they deserve to be played and enjoyed. Happy New Year and I will try to get to this soon. Filefront changed hands and is now Gamefront and hopefully things will be stable there. I use it because it does not have obtrusive ads like Mediafire and some other hosting sites. I will look into other options.

Guys, I doownloaded the Hoth mod, but I can't seem to see the .pk3 for it. All I see are the maps, music, textures files, and etc. Might I add that I don't see a ReadMe file either. Hmm...

Help!

i'm fairly sure your 'viewing' the pk3 in the screen. those are the folders and structure inside a pk3.

go up one level in your explorer. to imphothv3. it might help if you turn off the 'hide known file extenions' option in windows.

I will be back soon with updates and new links as there have been some that dropped, as File Front has a new policy that requires constant use or they drop the links. I will also look for mirrors so that none of the classic maps get lost. Do let me know via PM if you need any specific ones that i discuss and I will try to get them to you asap.
