As usual, only for those interested.
I'm very sure everyone would know this: Imperial officers in JK2, regardless of rank, has the same rank insignia. On further research, I found out all of them were of rank Line Captain. ALL of them? What about Admiral Fyyar? He's an Admiral, yet has a completely different rank insignia. A one-row insignia, 8 boxes each. So, what exactly is he? An Admiral-of-Fleet's rank insignia should have 12 boxes, 2 rows, 6 boxes per row. But Fyyar's rank insignia is of no known rank. Of course, he might've made his own insignia. Wouldn't want to be the same as others, this Fyyar.
What I don't understand is, why can't Raven at least do something about this? So unnoticeable, yet so noticeable. The skins for each rank should've unique rank insignia. This isn't hard to do for those experts at raven is it? it is not like having to completely remodel the officers.
Well, I've fixed the rank insignia myself. Gave Fyyar a rank of Grand Admiral, even though he has none of those yellow shoulder pauldrons. gave the Black, Blue, brown officers a rank of Line Captain, Commander and Sub-Lieutenant respectively.
Oh, just in case you're wondering where I got those rank names from, here's the link: http://www.theforce.net/swtc/insignia/badges.html That's where I got those insignias to replace the ones in the game.
Lol man get a job or something to keep you away from star wars. Lucas and raven are going to get pissed at you cuz you're finding all these errors. but it is pretty interesting and i appreciate your concern. do you have the models somewhere to download?? i searched on jk2files and couldn't find'em. please post them if you can ;) maybe he is some sort of special rank that was created?? wasn't he trying to be the new ruler of the new 'empire'?? so maybe thats his rank?!
yes really, where are these rank replacement skins??
i just spent who knows how long reading that entire page!! ahhhh!!!!!
yea this is a mod wothy of release. i wonder if his rank is that cuz hes not really a tradional admril. hes like the scientist isnt he. he invented the "black armor" and the reborns were esencially his idea by coming up with infusing the force into normal humans. btw couldnt he do this by taking some of those mediclori and injecting them er something. i remmber in the JAprentice books Jena Zan Arbor tried using blood and failed so i dunno.
i love these threads man
Well, I'm bored. This SARs outbreak caused the schools to be closed for 2 weeks. 2 boring weeks. Got to find something to do, you know.:D
It is not actually a model, just a simple skin. It is very, very simple. But the overall results look very convincing. I've even added an extra rank cylinder to the blue officer. Actually, more cylinders = lower rank.
Well, I guess Fyyar's the highest in command of the Empire in Jk2, so, why not have his own rank? It is, however, common for games to make mistakes in regards to such rank badges.
Oh, the golden things on a Grand Admiral's uniform aren't pauldrons. Saw wrongly. I meant to say those epaulets/epaulettes (which to use?). Fyyar's uniform is unique as well.
Speaking of Imperial troops, also notice that they don't have this round, button-like metallic object decorated on the front of their caps.
BTW, just a suggestion. I think this rank system is good for a Star Wars forum. You know, replace those 'Average FileFreak' with an Imperial Rank. Just a suggestion.
One more thing I found:
Here's Grand admiral Thrawn with the WRONG rank insignia...
Notice the rank label belongs to a Grand Moffs'? Oh, I really need something better to do.
you REALLY should release this, if not to the general public at least to the thread! :rock:
ur pic doesnt work for me for some reason. that sounds kool about the SW ranks lol. but u should only be able to c them on the SW related forums :agreed:
For those who can't see the picture, here is the link. I don't think direct linking would work here, so, you would have to copy and paste the link.
is that concept art. cuz if it is then it might be just a mistake. and how do u know that hes not the same rank :lol: yes u really need a hobby and not related to star wars:agreed:
