We have something at the Mod Central
for you to read while we wait.
Roger and I interviewed Chris Foster, JKII Design Lead.
JOMC: What areas/aspects of Jedi Knight II are you responsible for?
CF: Hmmm…throw a rock and you're sure to hit one. Seriously, though I had my hands in all aspects of the single player design. I was in on the Multiplayer design to a lesser degree, owing to the reality of such a short design cycle. I am partly responsible for the first two levels of the game, a number of incidental areas (for cinematics, etc.) as well as the final level of the game. I've done work on every map in the single player game, and I have managed to spend a considerable amount of time tweaking things over and over and over trying to get play balance just right.
He also gives some tips on how mod teams should work.
