About This File

Add Ahsoka Tano as a playable character, adversary, or player companion in Jedi Academy.

ADDITIONAL NOTE: Single-player character selection menu addon available here.

RELEASED: 4 August 2015
AUTHOR: Cerez
 
SUMMARY:
 
New Model: Yes
Bot: Yes
NPC: Yes
Team Support: Yes
Custom Sounds: Yes
Custom Lightsaber: Yes
 
DESCRIPTION:
 
A lifelike rendition of the character Ahsoka Tano, Padawan to Anakin Skywalker, from around the time of her departure from the Jedi Order.
 
FEATURES:
-----------------------------------
 
AHSOKA AS SINGLE-PLAYER SIDEKICK:
 
Have Ahsoka assist you on your single-player missions. After loading a level and activating cheat mode, type this in the game's console:
 
npc spawn ahsoka
 
A CHATTY BOT:
 
Ahsoka's multiplayer bot has a true-to-character, chatty personality, and is loaded with new things to say -- directly sourced from and inspired by her character talk and snap-backs from official games and TV show episodes, leading up to the end of The Clone Wars.
 
NEW DUAL LIGHTSABER COMBINATION:
 
Ahsoka being a dual lightsaber wielder in the traditional fashion, with a shoto blade, I've included her second lightsaber in the game's lightsaber selection menu. This allows the player to actually use a shoto (shorter bladed lightsaber). I found this makes fighting against duals a little less predictable, and helps to spice things up a bit both visually, and in terms of gameplay.
 
Console Reference:
Primary: tano
Supporting (Shoto): tano2
 
INSTALLATION:
-----------------------------------
 
Simply move the PK3 files into the "base" folder of your game directory.
 
KNOWN BUGS:
-----------------------------------
 
Slight clipping with the skirt and limbs in certain movement/poses, unavoidable due to the game's technical design limitations.

Woah!
I didn't know we had a Jedi Academy board here
Fancy seeing you here though Cerez, I thought you lingered around JKHub mostly
Glad to see your stuff mirrored here though, the more the merrier if you ask me
Welcome to DeadlyStream bud!

Welcome to DeadlyStream bud!

Thanks @Deltm! Not a big fan of the JKHub community anymore, seeing as they have limited to no support for cultural, genetic, and gender diversity. Despite how closely people associate me with that site/forums, I was aggressively assaulted by many discriminating and abusive members on countless occasions there, and staff behaviour/response was unacceptable, hence why I conclusively left. Glad to have finally found a new and more mature, spacious, and versatile home for my Star Wars mods to be honest. Hopefully others will follow in time, and the monopoly of JKHub as the closed, only, and now old, de-facto Jedi Knight modding resource and community will eventually come to an end, as it should.

Talking about the game, in different ways -- known for its multifaceted action -- the Jedi Knight series is as extensively loved/modded and timeless a Star Wars game pack as Knights of the Old Republic. Its mods really do deserve a home here, and I'm glad to see DeadlyStream open up this new branch. I'm showing my full support for it by featuring/hosting Ahsoka here, helping shape the new path by both spreading the word and contributing, and, hopefully, sharing/releasing brand new mods I'm working on here sometime in the near-future.

So -- in the spirit of Ahsoka -- DeadlyStream, make room, I'm tagging along for this ride! ;) (Does anyone have a proper deck of Pazaak to pass the time?)

Seriously, I have waited long to play the Jedi Knight Series both the Jedi Outcast and/or the Jedi Academy. My plan is to finish this KotOR1 playthrough first, then goes with TSL and the latter would be the JK series [JK:JO and JK:JA]. Hopefully I'm playing the JK at the right moment where some cool stuffs served on the list.

Ah-ha! You should check this thread by @CarthOnasty then. Fingerscrossed it would be delivered in no-time [go-CO-go!]. 🤞

Thanks! *chugs down that good ol' Corellian ale in a clean glass* (yuckk!) 😋

JK is a quite different experience to KOTOR, so I'd say that's a great plan. Keep in mind that you don't play JKO/JKA for the story so much as the free movement and action -- with the former still having a relatively decent story, although being more challenging in terms of difficulty to play. There's no beating the JK series in free-moving, mixed lightsaber and ranged weapon combat action, for instance, and in the hoards of different enemies you get to face, but just like KOTOR initially, it does take some getting used to at first, learning its organised system and quirks.

My recommendation: KOTOR 1 & 2 in sequence for the story, then JKA for learning the new action system and working your skills up, and then JKO as the prequel for a challenging and engrossing story-action mix.

But the real beauty of the JK series lies after the single player story experience, in just how much new community-made, amazing content you can find for the game and how you can effectively build your very own Star Wars action game! From KOTOR's environments and characters to locations from The Clone Wars and so much original trilogy, new, and EU/Legends content, it's all there for you to add to your game and customise as you please. You can build your very own digital Star Wars collection, all in one game (JKA), then, with a little learning, easily build your own sandboxes and levels to play. Using the popular Quake 3 engine, and with a detailed SDK, JKA is one of the most moddable games ever made. (Not that you need convincing, I'll stop infodumping, this is just my passion for it showing.)

Anyhow, there's so much great Star Wars world and gaming content ahead of you, it makes me excited! Enjoy! :3

I must be out of the loop a bit
I was not a big fan on everything the Administrators over there did or said but I must have missed all this jazz
I'm so sorry to here that your were made unwelcome over there, especially after being a main poster of content for so long
Hopefully there are no more issiues now that your here on DeadlyStream.
I've lurked and posted and all that for awhile and all the staff are extremely well-spoken and polite unless your being an ass on purpose

Regardless I can't wait to see what you've got cooked up here!
I must ask however can we expect any kotor content from you aswell?

Not quite the experience I've had. You may get that impression when occasionally visiting, but not when deeply involved in the community. Although well-spoken and intelligent, the staff do little to prevent abuse and emotional harassment there, and, in fact, often engage directly in it, or support it implicitly. They've even covered up incidents (evidence) to protect the perpetrators, and to twist public perception (psychological games and victim blaming). But enough about JKHub -- it's a deeply tainted place, starting with its owner and administrator...

Of course! I've already uploaded my KOTOR mods, and if I end up creating more, they will naturally follow. I'm replaying the game again after a longer hiatus, now.

(I've also been trying out Bioware's Jade Empire, but I'm not really happy with it -- the story isn't as ambiguous/Taoist as promised, the gameplay is not quite balanced, and, storywise, there are just too many complete experience breaking bugs. KOTOR had its share before the community fixes, but not as bad as this -- mostly due to better overall game design.)
