Theres a new site just starting up that's dedicated too JK2 Modelling (players, map objects and sabers), it's more for finding out what models are being worked on and downloading current ones, but there's already some links to good tutorials.

the only thing is that it's centered around models from the
Star Wars Universe

it might stop people spamming the forums so much coz they can find out when it's released, and there will be a mail list for model releases.

sorry just passing it on because the site is new and I want it to last

oh yeah here's the link - www.jk2models.cjb.net

thanx guys I'll fix the links and add these new ones, once these new models are out I hope we have the filespace to store them.
but our bandwidth is unlimited so there will never be downloading problems. But we are sharing filespace with
www.thehekawis.com - so check em out too.

I realise we have some great jk2 sites (like www.jediknightii.net and jedi-outcast.com) but they have file server issues (well have in the past) so this will be another site to download from.

also I'm trying to keep it to the Star Wars Chars. including the EU of course, but I admit that I've never delved much into the EU (the only book I ever read or recognised wsa "Splinter In The Minds Eye") so if I am hosting any custom chars. ones that don't appear in any comic or book etc
ie. that have been invented by the modeler, please tell me so I can remove them.

remember it's www.jk2models.cjb.net

hey aL BeasTie, nice site. but as much as i'd love the credit for the Kronar(really cool model), it was actually done by Keto. And even though it isnt from the EU (to my knowledge), keto has included a very detailed backstory that includes them in the Starwars Universe, so maybe your policy of no non-Movie/EU characters should be bent if the characters story still fits well. Perhaps make a section for made up characters that still belong in the starwars universe.

also, i hope you make it easier to find the files you want and to download them than the other sites. the only other site i've seen with a user-friendly interface is jedioutcastmaps.com, the rest lead you no where but away from the downloads, that is unless its in the top 10. its in my bookmarks, and i hope to see it up and running all the way soon - with files to download and all.

maybe it's just my connection but your site is sloooooow

yeah man, still not loaded while i'm posting this, kinda of a bad start if you ask me (plus the banners), not trying to talk trash about the site, just saying what I have on my mind.

Well, must be your connections, becuz it loads fast here.

aL BeasTie
06-23-2002, 11:42 PM
okay the first screens are an intro intro that's near 700k
so if your connection isn't too good it might take while to load but it should load the text link first in a few seconds, which you click to skip the intro

it says ~ ENTER JK2 MODELS ~ er somethin,
sorry but I was just testing the intro and I guess it doesn't cater for slow connections. I'll try to reduce the size, it's because of the music is an .au file instead of a .midi.

okay here's the lowdown guys,

there is "1" banner on the page which is pop-up on the first page because it is a re-directed site. The sites files are among another sites files (www.thehekawis.com) they are aware of this but we are using more space then them already. This is a NON-PROFIT site, every other JK2 site has 6pages before the download links and more banners than I can average out right now. so it's a simple site with direct links to tutorials files etc. for everyone

it is not a free site, it is not hosted by a free host and the bandwidth is unlimited so you can download whatever you want whenever you want, the fileserver is in Australia (i think) so that might make it slow at time for some people.

If too many ppl complain about the intro I'll get rid of it, but it's there so ppl know what the site is about before they think it sucks becasue it's not fancy etc. When I can I will update the site completely, but for now the main thing is keeping the content up to date, I still need all the LightSaber WIP's.

So just so everyone knows this site is for the benifit of others, not so I make money on pop-ups.

I'm happy for any comments guys - I need to know what you guys want because it's for YOU! :)

I need help . Ive downloaded the huge modeling tut BUT i need a decompressor that windows media and quicktime cant find :(

It says the decompressor is -> vids:TSSC

Can someone help me ?

hmm anyone who actually kept the page open for a few seconds before they went to another screen would see the the text link that lets you skip the intro.

I think I might kill this site because ppl keep whineing about 1 measly pop-up, while jkii.net has dozens of banners. and most of tem make them money, I AM NOT MAKING MONEY ON THIS.

And I only did so there's a site with ALL MODELS, not scattered through 4 websites, and to help modellers from ppl asking for release dates etc. if ppl use this site then the SPAM will reduce in this forum.

06-24-2002, 03:02 PM
just mentioning that I seem to be getting more support from actual modellers than I am the general community that the site is made for.

I'll give it a week and see how things pick up
