Recently, work was begun on a new mod for Jedi Knight II. The mod, called Torn Reality, will bring together many sci-fi universes for a very unique play experience.

Imagine leading a contingent of Stormtroopers into a base held by the Klingon Empire, or being a T-800 and attempting to erradicate a Xenomorph infestation. The mod will include civilizations from Star Wars, Star Trek, Babylon 5, Terminator, Alien, Stargate, and Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda.

Each civilization will have multiple classes, each with unique weapons and capabilities. Special settings for team games will allow you to have matches between specific factions, such as the Galactic Empire, the United Federation of Planets, and the Earth Alliance. Or, you can turn that option off, and mix and match classes as much as you like.

Plus, we the mod will have a number of vehicles available. You will be able to pilot AT-ST's, X-Wings, Federation Shuttlecraft, Thunderbolt Starfuries, and more.

The mod will have a massive scope, and I am undertaking this project with the knowledge that it will not be easy. The project currently includes a Project Manager (myself), and a Programming Lead. The following positions are still available:
Modellers
Skinners
2D Artist
Webmaster
Mappers

Benefits to being on the project include access to beta and alpha versions, as well as having your name in the credits for one JKII's most ambitious modding projects. If you have skills you'd like to contribute to the mod, or if you just want more information, you can post in this thread, or you can contact me via e-mail or private message. My e-mail address is BR48@Juno.com.

I hope to hear from you.

I'd just like to let everyone know that the mod is going forward. If anyone here is interested in our progress, the design document is finished, and coding has begun. Plus, we now have an AI expert doing the bot AI, and it looks like we'll have some really cool bots.

There are a couple of new developments on the design front, as well. It looks like we'll be seeing the Scarrens of Farscape in the mod, and the Imperium of Man from Warhammer 40K. A new play mode has also been decided upon, in which all the players in a match will join together to defend a fortress from an invading horde. Helm's Deep will be included as a map for this mode.

:cool: Not a bad idea... sounds a lot like the Omiverse Wars threads over at the WB forum.
