This side mod, by Recon Trooper, is a set of mostly visual changes for the stock Imperial side.It's worth noting that while his readme says:
And YES! Compatible Online!!
...I sincerely doubt he's tested that as it makes several changes that should disallow online use (changing unlock points, changing weapon odf names). In any case, this sides mod, unfortunately, seems to have all the limitations of an online-compatible sides mod with none of the advantages (i.e. actually being able to play online).The changes themselves are a very odd assortment, and it might be more appropriate to call this a collection of random assets from people rather than a true "sides mod," since it seems like most changes (retextures, models) are simply things other people made and the author downloaded and slapped together. Some of the additions are truly bizarre, like a droid model for the Imperial sniper.In addition to the haphazard assortment of random assets, there are a few bugs. First of all, a couple of the guns have incorrect FPM views (the Dark Trooper's award pistol is one). There's also at least one missing localization (which is how you can tell that a new weapon was added, making the sides mod online-incompatible).To sum up, this feels like a very disorganized showcase of a bunch of other people's work rather than a well-done side mod. That is not to say that I doubt the author could make a sides mod, but it would be best to plan out a theme (like one consistent color, for example) and choose assets that make sense to fit that theme. Simply downloading a bunch of assets that look "cool" and mixing them all together is like taking a bunch of your favorite foods and blending them together in the hopes of a delicious meal. (Hint: It is not delicious.)-Mav
