Ain't that hard.

Open up "assets1.pk3" with winzip or winRAR. Browse to models/players/jedi_**/ where the ** is the class you want to modify. Extract all the files to a folder you can use to work on the files. When you open the folder you just extracted to, you'll see all the texture files (*.png and *.jpg), and the *.skin files. Pick a "head_**", "lower_**", or "torso_**" that you like the shape of. You can use the thumbnails provided in the directory to make your decision.

Now, open the corresponding *.skin file that matches the body part you want to remake. You should use notepad to do this, it's the easiest way. Save it as a different filename, such as "torso_z1.skin" for example. Read down the list, it should make reference to several texture files. Edit these texture files to get the appearance you want (use photoshop or painter or something) and save them with different names (you can increment the suffix 04 to 05 if it isn't use, or just go with z1 still). Now go back to your new *.skin file you made, and change the texture references everywhere you saw the old ones. Replace the names with your new texture filenames. When you are all finished, save the *.skin file.

Here is the final step.

You must zip these new files back into a *.pk3 file. First off, you ONLY WANT TO INCLUDE THE MODIFIED FILES. So that would mean torso_z1.skin, and whatever new files it was pointing to. Also, it must have the same directory structure as the original assets1.pk3 file. So put it in a folder like this: C:\models\players\jedi_tf\*.* And if you're using winRAR you can right click the "models" folder and "add to archive." Select ZIP as the file format but rename the extension to pk3. It should keep all the subdirectories in it's default setting. Name the pk3 file anything you want, such as "tf_clothes.pk3" or whatever, and place it in your "base" folder in your Jedi Academy directory. Start the game, and it should append your new clothes to the options in Create-A-Player. If it doesn't show up right, make sure your skin file points to all the correct filenames.

Make sense?

OK you mean make my skin in a seperate pk3 instead of adding to the original? I did that and it did not work. I added the luke skywalker skin for practice. I kept the file structure also.

OK look at this example. I just whipped this up to try the process out.
