I posted this over at jk2files forum and they said you folks might be interested in this as well.

With the addition of a wonderful new tron skin I decided to do a discs of tron map. So I have one issue, getting a mod written to limit you to throwing only with unlimited force. I have the saber replaced by the disc already as you can see in the screenshot below.

Anyone interested in helping with this small conversion please contact me on yahoo or through my email.

Here's alittle screenie to get the juices flowing....

Why? Tron 2.0 is coming out soon.

Because Tron 2.0 has nothing to do with this map. This is an homage to a movie way before its' time. It may not be 2.0 but it will be fun for us to make. Surpisingly, there are some of us playing JK2 over the age of 25 that remember the effect this movie had on the way we looked at computers.

So more than anything this is for the "old folks", who might enjoy a little trip to the past.

one problem that arrises with this mod though is 'foxing'. Because Tron 2.0 is in the works, chances are it will be released before the mod, thus any tron mods will get the attention of the licensors resulting in mod development shutdown.

Then again, maybe they won't care. Some companies are pretty cool about communities.

Copyright laws protect us in this matter. It's being made as a nonprofit expression or parody of said property. As far as tron 2.0, please don't even bunch us together with that project.
This map has nothing to do with the new game whatsoever and as long as we fulfil the clasification of a parody of the original movie they can't touch us. I mean what about the Blade Mod, the AOTC conversion, they don't get flack nor will we.

The only thing I've got worries about is the fact that some people seem to think it neccessary to give us negative feedback about a project that isn't even close to completion.

If you want to get involved in the project please email us. If you don't like the idea, fine, just don't post for the sake of adding a negative comment if you don't want to be involved. All it serves to do is push away possible modders who might otherwise get involved.

"Warning, this mod and map isn't for everyone, just those with open minds and a love for what we do"

Hey, I think it's a sweet project, and the screenshot looks cool. TRON is a big "nostalgia well" for me and it's great to see more maps and whatnot related to the original classic.

I actually did a bunch of projects (flash game and models (http://www.jakekeating.com/portfolio/games/games_para01.htm)) based on that movie. It's a great source of inspiration and still a cult classic.
