Newmod is a clientside code and assets mod for Jedi Academy multiplayer. Newmod updates JKA with many important bugfixes, improvements, and features. While it was developed primarily with base-style CTF and Siege in mind, it can be used for any base gametype.

Newmod is compatible with base and all base-like server mods, such as JA+, Lugormod, base_enhanced, and base_entranced. It is not compatible with other major clientside mods or utilities, including Movie Battles, Smod, kill trackers, Ultra Utility, etc. A small number of Newmod features require server mod support to work fully; current server mods that include such support are base_enhanced and its sister mod base_entranced. These are the official server mods for the CTF and Siege communities, respectively.

Newmod modifies some base assets with the intent of improving the user experience (i.e., not simply reskins/recolors). Compatibility with other assets mods may be determined by comparing which files are changed by each mod. We recommend only using the vanilla executable or NewJK in conjunction with Newmod.
