In light of the recent Jade Empire Special Edition giveaway on Origin, I just wanted to let people know that there was some modding done for the game on LucasForums and other places in the past.

 

This thread is the most comprehensive out there regarding this subject. It is not terribly active anymore except for when people request SpaceAlex's mod pack which I would be glad to send to you via PM.

 

When I used to play the game, I went to these sites for mods/leads:

 

Nexus

 

Jade Empire in Style

 

moddb

 

shsforums

 

Gamefront

 

Note: Many links to mods are dead unfortunately.


Looking for a mod but can't find it? Ask over at the Mod Requests thread.

And to think I bought the disc version off ebay a few years ago, drat. Well at least this would serve as a back up copy.

As did I, but there was no way to predict the future.

Yes there is and was silly billy, the future is the past to the future for us in the future, as the past is to the future, the future is to the past, as the past is to the present as the present it to the future.

 

The future is the past to people whom have experienced it, and the past is the future for those who are further behind than we are.

 

The present is the future to those whom haven't experienced the present.

 

We can predict the future by listening, hearing, seeing, and being.

Also, for some shameless self-promotion, Jade Empire is also a target for xoreos. :P
 
Earlier this year, I figured out the general model format, at least the static geometry (I'm still not completely sure about material properties and shader parameters, and the animations). As far as I am aware, this hadn't been done at all previously. Since the, Farmboy0 did some more sleuthing on the model format, and has created a more mapped out description file for 010 Editor.
 
I'm still looking for people to join the xoreos efforts. People who want to extend the tools in the xoreos-tools repository, or add further tools to it, so that this sub-project is more useful for modding purposes, are also more than welcome.
 
EDIT: I went ahead and checked the Jade Empire binary template file for 010 Editor into the xoreos-docs repository, in the off-chance it might be useful to somebody. The model loader in xoreos itself can be found here.

Cool stuff DrMcCoy!

 

DarkChocolate: What are your impressions of the game so far?

Yes, there was never much done on the JE MDL format, unfortunately.

Oooh, handy, thanks. Now do K1/K2.

They sure are popular. But I guess his Closed Fist Romance mod is arguably the greatest JE mod of all time.
