Default Jedi Academy Unleashed - Mod (TFU-Total Conversion)

This is what you've been waiting for!

Some of you already know that I'm building a TFU-Mod for Jedi Academy.
The Mods' name will be

Jedi Academy Unleashed

(I hope there won't be any copyright-problems! o_O)

-------------------------

The plan:

- Jedi Academy Unleashed (JAU) will be a "Total Conversion"
- It will be SinglePlayer only!
- You'll be able to play the story of TFU on your computer!
- There will be cutscenes with original sounds from TFU,
BUT the cutscenes will be in Jedi Academy graphic (so they'll be a "REMAKE" of the original TFU-cutscenes, just with another engine)
- You can move the camera while playing!
- High quality models and maps (they'll be as good and detailed as possible)
- Health bars
- stronger force powers
- backhand lightsaber
- new animations
- TFU-Music
- gripable objects, robots and dead bodies

-------------------------

What I did until now:

- reskinned Unsungs' and Schrödingers' Starkiller-Model
- build the hangar of the Tie-Facility
- a friend of me reskinned the rancor
- mixed the Telekinesis Mod with the Jacob's Stance

And some other small changes like backhand saber, camera movement, etc... you can see everything in the videos below...

--------------------------

It IS possible to build a TFU-TC!

But it's tooo hard to do it alone.
So I'll start recruiting now.

I need:

- good mappers
- good modelers

I don't need skinners, because I can do that myself.
A friend of me will try to send me sound effects from the original TFU-game in the best quality as possible.

-------------------------

Permissions:

I will NOT release the Mod, if the people whose models and mods I used don't give me their permissions.
I'm talkin of this stuff:

Telekinesis Mod
Jacob Stance
Starkiller Model (by Schrödiger and Unsung) (talked already to them)
Stormtrooper (Haps) <-- Does anyone know how to contact him?
- New Lightning effects
- "sniper-backhand saber"

Mmh... I think I don't ripped of any other stuff.
So I'll try to contact the people...
-------------------------

Starkiller Model:

Currently I'm using the "Schröd+Unsung-Starkiller"...
But I know, that there are 2 more amazing starkillers coming... There's one on the Void and there's also DLX's Starkiller.
If I get ALL permissions, you'll be able to choose between the 3 models at the beginning of the game.

-------------------------

Maps (ATTENTION!!! SPOILERS!!!):

I'm currently building the first level of the game (Tie-Facility)...

About the real first level (ATTENTION! Spoiler ALERT!!!):
Spoiler:
I know, that the Vader-Level is the "real" first level of TFU, but I don't want to put it in my Mod... MAYBE as a bonus-map... But the game shall start with Starkiller's first mission... And I think the Kashyyk-
Level won't look nice in Jedi Academy...


I will also build

Spoiler:
the Executor-Level


What you can do for me:

I need mappers for the following maps:

Spoiler:
Felucia, Raxus Prime, Death-Star


But: PLEASE rebuild the maps as good as possible! I made a lot of reference-pics with my camcorder when I played TFU on my X-Box360 to rebuild the Tie-Hangar as good as possible.

-------------------------

Other Models [SPOILERS!!]:

I need people who can build these models:

Spoiler:

TFU-Royal Guards (all colors)
PROXY
Rham Kota
Battle-Damaged Vader
EVO-Stormtroopers


I was working on a Juno Eclipse-Model in Milkshape 3D, but I can't make it usable for playing. I think there are also no more bones... But if someone want's to finish my work, I can send him the files!

------------------------

Videos:

I already uploaded some videos...
At the beginning I did not plan to make a total conversion! I wanted to make a mod for myself.. But when I recognized, that it IS possible, I decided to make a BIG project out of it...

YouTube - Jedi Academy: The Force Unleashed Mod (Watch my new video!)

YouTube - Re: Jedi Academy: The Force Unleashed Mod

YouTube - WIP: Starkiller Reskin (Jedi Academy Unleashed)

YouTube - Jedi Academy Unleashed - Animations

YouTube - Jedi Academy Unleashed - First Map + Camera Movement

About the "Beta-Version":
There will be no release until I got the permissions!
So don't become angry please!
--------------------------

Mod Forums:

The Mod does NOT have any website... but I think I'll set up a website in a few days...



So if you want to support this project, just tell me what you can do or show me pictures of WIP-Models/Maps in this thread

I understand what you want to say. But Lucasarts said, that TFU will definitely NOT be released on the computer... You will NEVER be able to play the original TFU on your PC That's why I want to make this mod...

It's a good idea, but sorry, I have to say "no"... MAYBE there will be as many bonus-levels /alternate endings as we want, but at the moment I don't want to change the story. But I won't forget your idea

TFU was over hyped.

Sucks there wont be any PC or MP to it. But honestly like JO or JA they would have to water it down some for MP.

Bunch of ffing Starkillers would be a headache on servers anyway.

Spoiler:
nub i pwned jo with grip!!!!1
h4x0r ban him for laming me with force pl0x!


What goes inside my base folder is no one business but my own. My choice as to what I put in it and take out of it.

This is a SP only mod. But as for the grip and push or lightning combos it was available before but in this mod it will make it easier and smoother to do so.
