Jedi Knight III

Hercules and Xena Skins

Description:

[quote]I placed this under conversions rather than skin packs because, while it doesn't really fit 100% in either category, it's closer to a conversion than to a skin pack. The idea of this mod is
Show All
that it adds/replaces a whole bunch of skins with their Xena or Hercules counterparts. Don't ask me why Luke=Hercules or why the rebel pilot is now a Mon Mothma reskin that still has a man's voice... these details are beyond me. What I do know is that I apparently didn't watch Xena long enough to know who all these characters are, or what they're supposed to look like. I do know what Xena and Hercules are supposed to look like, though, and I can tell you right off the bat that no base assets model is going to be able to capture either of them... and I wasn't too far off. Most of the skins here actually are a little off, mostly because the faces are one notch down from blasphemy. It's like the author put a lot of effort into adding all this stuff, but very little into refining it. Most of the faces are not quite lined up -- a lot of the mouths don't match the mouth on the model, so when they talk they look silly -- and a lot of skin tones between meshes don't match. And don't even ask me why you would skin an arm texture over a poofy sleeve. That one I can't begin to fathom. Long story short, this needs a lot of work and a lot more attention before it's playable in an enjoyable fashion. As a big Xena fan myself, I'd love to see a great Xena skin. The one here only has a passing resemblance to Lucy Lawless, which is for me at least a big disappointment for what could be a very interesting mod, if the author would take the extra time, work out the kinks, and really place the appropriate emphasis on the details. The big picture is all good and fine, but without the details it's more of a sketch than a portrait. ~Inyri[/quote] Now let’s start by saying that this looked interesting to me and though I was no fan of Hercules and Xena I do like however Greek mythology. First we’ll talk about all the goodies in this mod. There are sabers, hilts, tons of skins to mix and match, weapon reskins, hotkeys assigned for both cheats and npcs. Also you have a very handy button for changing skins on the fly. And many npcs. Now let’s discuss the material. Some of the skins look decent but the textures don’t seem that great to me I don’t know why but there is something funky about them. The clothes don’t really look natural up close and the faces seem to have a bit of skin tone mismatch. The sabers were good but not really all that impressive. It comes with a few hilts and while some look good some just look like they were rushed and not fully completed. Now this pack also replaces the menus and loading screens with a collage of pictures from the characters of the shows but the menus just have a small pig with a red cape which doesn’t really make any sense at all but ok. The Single player campaign was completely changed with the skins on this pack. There were some bugs, at the end there was this bug that maybe only happened to me, but when Tavion is possessed by Ragnos her body is changed to this untextured reborn looking thing. And the same happens when you kill her. Also at the end Kyle’s replacement gets swallowed into the ground and Hercules which replaces Luke is also swallowed only to his hip so you see your character walking next to a legless Hercules and Kyle seems to be talking from under the concrete. Oh and the Mon Mothma reskin is still acting as a pilot which freaks you out when you hear such manly voice, but I guess it's funny though. The MP element is just standard, but with all the skins available including the Ragnos reskin which in my opinion is one of the best looking reskins in the pack, adds a bit of variety. Overall it’s an original idea that fans will love given the options to select either mortals, gods, and demigods. It provides a great selection of outfits and for the male audience there are some provocative outfits included here. The one skin that I would say definitely needs it’s own model is Medusa as the Twi’lek female doesn’t really make justice to this specific character. I hope that the V3 is better, this is an improvement don’t get me wrong I saw V1 but it still needs a lot more work, maybe some more texturing and make the skin tones match, and use shaders to help you out. So if you like Xena and Hercules or just Ancient Greek Mythology then this pack is for you just don't get your hopes up too much. [i]Lady_Trinity[/i]
