Jedi Knight III
I often wonder why people insist on sending us skinpacks and not including screenshots. They wonder why we get so behind... This back has six main skins, with some variations on a couple of them.
A couple, in my opinion, make over-the-top use of shaders. As most of you know by now, I\'m a supporter of actual art within skins and models, and I really hate it when someone makes a crappy skin and then puts a weird shader over it to make it look \"cool\", because in essence the engine is doing all their work for them. This is completely true of one of the skins, which is a cultist painted black, paintbucket style. Then on top of it it has a lava-like shader (IE the mesh fluxuates in and out, like waves). It\'s a cool look, but all it\'s doing is covering up a really awful skin. The other skins seem to be mostly recolorations of default skins, or copy-pastes of one skin onto another (one of the reborn skins makes use of a recolored shadowtrooper torso texture. Another skin, the \"metal\" shadowtrooper, really just looks like a contrast change with perhaps a little color addition, though I doubt it. One problem with that skin is that the legs are far too bright in comparison with the body. The Tavion skin looks pretty good, though I noticed she\'s mysteriously missing her cleavage, which should be showing just a little bit. The sounds were also a bit weird. The author didn\'t change all the sounds, so some of the skins have random Jaden sounds intermixed with the strange sounds belonging to the skins. Why a reborn would roar like a rancor is beyond me anyway. Overall I find this pack incredibly random, making it hard to appreciate. I prefer to see some kind of flow to a skin, and most of these just look like the author said \"okay, I\'ll make this part grey, and this part green, and this part orange, and ooh let\'s give him funky colored skin!\" Bot Support: No Team Support: Yes New Sounds: Yes NPC Support: Yes ~Inyri
