Ok...The game isn't even out yet, but think about mod possibilities. I'd personally like to see low-grav and fatboy borrowed from unreal tournament. Maybe relics, too. Like a holocron or a shield of some sort.

Relics and things like that would make JK2 feel closer to the gamer, as will cutscenes made by the engine. Mods should also be easy to build and to install as we saw with EF!

TEAM FORTRESS AND COUNTERSTRIEK! w00t!

heh joking. I would like to see a team based game of some sort. Maybe like light jedi vs dark jedi or something.

How about a kill Jar-Jar and enslave the Gungans mod.

I had the very same idea. Kill the Gungan!
Great minds think alike huh?

These ideas are pretty cool, but some of them might already be in the game when it comes out. Like the light vs dark. Or the kill the jar jar. I don't remember exactly, but I think that there was a kill the jar jar mode for Obi-Wan for PC. And if there wasn't, we were sure going to make one in a hurry.

I'm hoping for something in JKII called "Jedi Arena". It was originally going to be a multiplayer gameplay mode for Obi-Wan before it got cancelled.

Here's the skinny on 'Jedi Arena':

You and one opponent will be in an area blocked off from the others in the game. Maybe they are just spectators, or maybe they are actually outside of the arena watching, or they could be fighting amongst themselves. It will be you, your opponent, and your lightsabers in this space till one of you dies. Then the next person in line will port into the arena and you would fight them till one of you dies (assuming you didn't die on the first match). And it goes on and on. Two people in one place with nothing but their lightsabers to fight with. Then another opponent after you kill your last one. You get the idea don't ya?

I think that it would be better if you got to have full health for every match in the arena. That way no one has any unfair advantage. Or to make it more interesting, you don't get full health if you win the match. If you finished injured, you have to fight the next match injured.

Oh, did I mention that I don't want that to be a mod? That I want that to be a part of the game when it is released? I don't think I did, so I 'll mention it now. :D

I want the Jedi Arena idea to be implimented into the game. Can you do that for me Raven? Please?

What im hoping for is a base infiltration where one team defends and one team has to capture like on UT. Raven will take all these points into consideration, or may keep it for an add-on like they did with EF. :D SO that would be Jedi Knight 2 - Jedi Outcast - and then the addon name. WOW, thats a mouthful!

They may just put it all in the game at once so it won't have to be a mouth full. :p

I don't think there would be a base infiltration, to me, it just doesn't seem like something we would see in this Star Wars game. It shouldn't be too hard to make a mod of it though.

I wanna see the VIP thing that was scheduled for Obi-Wan before it got cancelled.

Princess Leia needs a safe escort through this forest, she has to get away safely. But there is a group of Dark Jedi/Mercaneries/Assassians that are after her and her group of Jedi/Mercanery protectors. Your first priority is the protect Leia. You can either kill all the 'terrorists' or escort her to the escape zone.

Sound familiar? 'Cept in Obi-Wan it was Queen Amidala and her Royal Guard vs Battle Droids I think.

Here are a couple of Mod ideas that sort of popped into my head...

JEDI ASSAULT COURSE

You race opponents through a Jedi assault course, and the one who crosses the finish line first is the winner. Why Jedi assault course? Well, because you would have to use your Force powers to complete the course. You could have really high jumps, you could use Force speed in parts, pull, push, maybe use the lightsaber to cut at dummy enemies along the way to gain more points, etc. You could also add a strategy element, like pushing your opponents off ledges, so they have to start a particular obstacle again.

JEDI CHESS

Based on the traditional Chess game, with the same moves, but you have to actually fight for each square - you don't automatically take control of it, unless it is empty, of course. This would naturally be a team game. The winner is the first one to get the opposing side's King piece (which could be designated at the start of each match - that player has a different skin, for example) in Checkmate. You could limit the number of pieces on the board, and maybe the size of the board, to keep the game manageable.

A variation would be something like the dejarik game with holomonsters that was played on The Millennium Falcon in ANH, with a circular board, but I'm not sure of the rules on that one. Technically, I suppose you could play it in a similar way to chess.

If I get any other ideas, I'll let you know. ;)

A Team Fortress Mod would be interesting but I'd do it withOUT the Jedi, Rebels versus Imps. No force powers, sentry guns could be like the guns in Empire Strikes Back to defend the base :)

Or a map with a Death Star up above, steal the command codes frpm the others base, get them to your base and the DS nukes the other teams base > :)

Just had a new thought, you start off with no powers, everytime you kill someone you gain a power, if you get killed, that person gains your skills.

Or similar to the jar jar one, Kill the Jedi, kill him and you become the jedi ad everyone is after you. Though you have more powers to defend yourself obviously
