Does anybody know if there will be a Rocket jetpack in JKII, for mp mods like there was in mots "ManoWar"? :D

Nothing is known about rocket packs at this time. I'm pretty sure that if it's not featured in the final game that someone will probably make a mod for it, though.

Ugh. I really, really hate rocket packs. They just annoy me, and they are rarely ever done well. I enjoyed it in Tribes 2, but I just think that a Jedi flying around n rocket packs just feels wrong.

Now suppose, just suppose, that there was a Boba Fett model in JK2. That would change things a bit, wouldn't it?

Just a thought.

All right, we'll suppose that.

We wouldn't have to worry about it in single player, since you play as Kyle Katarn. But in multiplayer, one guy flying on a jetpack, and the others walking on the ground? I don't know, but it seems unbalanced to me. But if Raven found a way for it to work out, that would add a whole new perspective to the game. Could be interesting, although I doubt it will happen.

A mod will surely be made, and we'll see how it works out then.

Well, if JK2 did different player classes, it'd work out fine IMHO. *shrug*

I'm with Canoli, I don't really want jet packs in Jedi Outcast, at least not in the multiplayer modes announced so far. I wouldn't mind if it was a separate setting for 'Allow Jet Packs' though.

I wouldn't mind jetpacks for, say bounty hunter classes, in MP, or even all non-jedi classes. But agreed, something so potentially controversial as a jetpack should be a MP option set by the server.

In MOTS and JK1, they had bouty hunter classes in multiplayer. One of the playable bounty hunters was a mandalorian. (Boba Fett armour) but the jetpack was not used. This was anoying, because on one of the cloud city levels, there was a big hole in the floor i couldnt get out of. It was very confusing how to get out. :confused: The jet pack would be OK if available then. And speaking of jumping and flying, does anyone know the part of ESB where Luke jumps out of the carbon freeze? He hangs on to a wire above it. That would be an excellent thing in JK2. To jump, grab something, swing forward over a gap, kick a stormtrooper, land, pull out lightsaber and continue.... ;)

You can rest assured that if JKII isn't sporting a Personalities MODification, a group of editors will probably take on the task. I've been working on a few things, as far as the site design, over at JKMAG, and hopefully I'll be able to talk Azlon into making Manowar for JKII. ;)

if you think the jetpack was done correctly in Tribes 2, you have not played Tribes 1

the jetpack and "skiing" were the main focal pts, and were an unstoppable combo which everyone mastered

the maps were fast, but the action was faster

my point? just saying that anyone who has extensively played Tribes 1 thinks T2 is a horrible mistake

my two cents

Has anybody here seen the new trailers to Ep2 AOTC, if you have then you would have notice Jango Fett battling Obi-Wan he was flying around shooting down at Kenobi.So if the movie has that senario then why not in mp mod, plus Jedi's have their force powers and Mandalorian Commandos have their armory? :)

just a lil reminder, anyone remember Shadows of the Empire for N64?

The lvl 5 boss was Boba Fett, who flew around and even had Slave 1 up his sleeves (literally)

anyways, to do this again would = rehash, and there is too much of that already in the world

You are correct, I haven't played Tribes 1. Tribes 2 was decent, but I no longer play it. I wholeheartedly enjoyed the jetpack in that game.

Boba Fett appeared in Dark Forces too.

I'm not really sure I'd want to see Fett as anything but an MP skin...but there are issues around rocket packs.

You can check this thread (http://www.jediknightii.net/cgi-bin/forum/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic&f=10&t=000643) for another discussion on the topic. ;)

Does anybody have a link to Manowar for JK?

Boba Fett appeared in MotS as well, in the Cloud City secret level.

I couldn't find Man O War, but a good place for other JK/MotS levels and mods is Massassi.net (http://www.massassi.net/). I recommend IWP 2 (JK Mods section), and Birth of a Mercenary (MotS Single Player Levels section).

Not sure if this is what you guys are looking for or not. I remember playing this a looong time ago, but whatever.

Manowar 2 for JK (http://www.jediknight.net/jkmag/man2/index.html)
Manowar 3 for MotS (http://www.jediknight.net/jkmag/man3/index.html)

i have to agree, jet packs would only fit in if there was a class system with the jet system being the bounty hunter or mercenary counter-part to force jump..

I would have thought a jet pack would definatly be included as it was in Elite Force. Many things like this will be available in JK2 multiplayer :)

So, because something's in Elite Force, it means it'll automatically be in JK2 as well? Wow, according to your logic we can look forward to phasers and disrupters. Yippy skippy.

phasers = stormy rifle

disrupters = thermal grenade

With in reason...yes. Most of the features from Elite Force are going to be included in JK2.....its already looking like an elite force type of game, and we know for a fact that the multiplayer features are very very similar. Most of Ravens products are similar....soldier of fortune, Elite Force....they all play in the same way

Jetpack? Tribes coined that.
