View Full Version : kinda disappointed with the mods/maps lately...

i have to admit, i'm somewhat disappointed with the mods/maps coming out lately. i thought for sure as soon as the sdk was released we'd start seeing the good stuff that people really want, ie jk1 and mots maps, real models of darth maul, vader, old ben, etc... i mean, the few maps that have been released are damn cool, don't get me wrong, but i'm just surprised, i thought people were already all over the classics, just waiting for the sdk to be released to put the finishing touches on. hell, isn't there some sort of way to convert the old models, of course they're much lower poly-wise than they should be, but its a start.

all you modders/modelers/map makers out there, please keep up the good work and let us run around the cargo ship darth vader style....hehehe.

i think most of the people that are willing to do such mod/models are waiting for the SDK to see what it can do and what options they have a developers rather than working on something they think they can finish once the SDK is released (but since the SDK maybe hasn't got the features required they can't finish their projects)
thus i think that the really good mods will come out in a few months/weeks, just like the really good maps

Well , I think the new maps are pretty good. The temple is a classic i reckon for Dueling and Carbon Freeze is one of my favs for the purpose of fighting in a actual star wars scenery and used for dueling as well. I play on Duel servers more than FFA or CTF , so prefer close combat and small compact maps. But i aint dissappointed so far with any of the skins or maps.

The really good stuff will take time. Patience.

ummm...last time i checked, the sdk has been released for days now. that's the whole point of my post. hehehe.

Maybe they all waited for SDK to come out THEN start working on maps.

its kinda early since the modding tools have been released....it wil lbe a while before some quality stuff will come out...but the stuff out recently is pretty good i think...

I think it's all pretty good too but there's only so many dueling boxes a person can stand. While the maps that have come out so far look cool, they are essentially clones of each other in that there's no variety. What I'am waiting on are some good FFA/Team FFA and CTF/CTY maps to hit the scene.

Yea I cant wait for some really sweet maps. I love this game!!!

is it possible for somebody to make a mod where you have the double sided saber(with good animations), and you can also have duel sabers? i hope so, if somebody is, contact me, reply in this thread.

All good things take time. Chill. Relax. Swing the saber. If you wait, they will come.

I can't wait until someone remakes Oasis.

04-27-2002, 10:42 PM
Yea, soon the maps will be coming out in the bucket-loads..... Then we will all be in a frenzy for downloading the latest maps....

As far as the mods go, Im eagerly (hope i spelt it right!) waiting BadKarma's mod, a class-base starwars ctf... looks good!

The SDK only gives tools for editing maps and models, the source code has yet to be released. Any real mod will require the source code to make the changes they want to incorporate.

ahhh naboo...the good times keep coming back to me

there really is no point complaining about the maps coming out...like a few people have said, it take a long time to make a qaulity map...even for the best mappers.
