FFA3 - Yavin Edition (1.0) - File Description  

Its pretty remarkable how much you can change what a map feels like, with a few texture changes and the addition of a few trees! Here we have a 'Yavin-ized' version of the ever popular FFA3 map. Bear in mind that for the most part (with a few small additions, secrets and extra models), the actual structure of the map remains almost exactly the same as the default version, only it now has Yavin textures, instead of Tatooine textures! Oh and it also has some Yavin music, to fit with the new theme of course!

There is also a hidden teleport which will take you to another small base JKA duel map which is also been made part of this map.

As I mentioned, a few trees have been added around the upper part of the map to give the impression of a jungle beyond and there is now what appears to be a big screen TV in the main bar area (a broken big screen TV that is stick out tongue). Instead of being a Tatooine spaceport type map, it now feels more like a retrofitted ancient Yavin temple, which is pretty amazing considering the only major changes are the textures and trees! That stands as testament to just what you can do to revitalize even an old and oft played base JKA map like FFA3.

There is a rather big drawback however I'm afraid. This is meant to be a server side map, so it is not selectable from the map menu in JKA because, it in effect, replaces the base JKA FFA3 map. If you load up FFA3 in JKA from the map menu it will load this Yavin version, but the author says that if you join a server which has the unaltered FFA3 it will instead load that. Not only that, but of you run this map on your server, anyone joining should not have to download and install this map, since all the textures and everything else is server side. So, it kinda replaces, and yet also doesn't replace the original FFA3, depending on the circumstances. :S

Personally I think this is fat too over complicated, I would have much preferred to see a simple straight forward map, which can be selected and started up from the map menu, in addition to the default FFA3, rather than having some kind of complicated system for replacing or not replacing the map depending on what server you join.

I really liked this map, I think the Yavin theme actually fits this map much better than the Tatooine one it was designed with, but in my opinion though, not being able to play it in a straight forward manner like most other maps is a big drawback. That's just my opinion however!

Of course, if you released this map in the normal sense, I would me most happy! smile

Anyway, if you like the look of this map and think it will be useful for your server (I'm sure it would be excellent for clan servers, Yavin themed maps are always popular there!) then give it a download!

New Textures: Yes and No, original textures replaced with other default ones!
New Sounds: No
New Music: Yes and No, same as above!
Bot Routes: Yes
Game Types: FFA, TFFA

Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy

mp/ffa3 edited into Yavin.
author: sword

filename: ffa3_yavin1.0.pk3
filesize: 3,24MB
release date: 30-may-2010


First of all, this is a Server Side mod, not client. It does NOT overwrite
original mp/ffa3 map, in effect, when you have this installed and join a server
with clear ffa3, it will be clear. And also, since this is Server Side modification,
made with textures and models existing in game, client do not need to download and install it.


1-Compiled two maps together, There is a teleport in the mp/ffa3 bar leads to mp/duel02.
1a-(Note, Because I have used item force boon as a teleport, you have to enable Force Boons)
-Most textures are changed.
-Music is also changed to fit Yavin style.
-Added some mysterious secrets.
-Removed all med kits, shield kits, ammo, and all useless crap.
-Chat icon is different
-There is propably something more i forgot about.

How to install:

Unzip and put the ffa3_yavin1.0.pk3 file into your Base directory,
or a game mod (example JA+) directory.
example: C:/games/jediacademy/gamedata/base

Known Bugs:

Because i have removed all spawnpoints and spectator spawnpoint from map mp/duel02
you can NOT set map as mp/duel02, it will cause errors, server crash or instant disconnect.


Special thanks goes to Seto, who helped me more than i could wish.
Testers: Adanos, Andorn, Ezro, Shack, thank you guys.
