Alright, listen up everyone 'cause I hate talking to myself...
I am a HUGE fan of this game. I'm using the word huge here. Large refers to a planet. Big refers to a small star. You get the idea. I freaking love this game and the community around it, I really do! And one of my favorite parts about this game is the endless supply of models, skins, and custom levels supplied by people as enthusiastic as me about this game. But with all that enthusiasm comes a fairly large problem...
I join up in a game and see a whole lot of Kyles running around. Now while there is nothing wrong with the Kyle model itself, most people tend to pick something a little less 'common'. Ergo they grab a custom skin from JK2Files.com or somewhere else. But when I ask them, "hey what skin do you have?" I get an answere like "Darth Maul" or "Anakin from Episode 2". The first few times I heard this I was a little surprised because I was possitive that I had a Darth Maul model and about three Annie models, but this joker manages to grab the one I didn't get! Since I haven't seen a server that downloads custom models/skins that players are using onto my computer, I'd have to go around and find even MORE Maul and Annie skins!
I'm asking that someone organizes these repated models more efficiently. I say cast some votes as to which model is the best, put that one up, and then set all the other duplicates of that model on another part of the site. It's getting very difficult to keep tracking down all these skins and models people are using and telling me are so great. The only reason I keep doing it is because the constant battle between one Kyle Katarn and another gets excrutiatingly boring after about the 80th fight.
Thank you for your time!
What if someone makes a better skin out of the same character?
Then we update it every once and a while when people put up new submissions.
Also, people have different tastes. One person might like one Darth Vader and another person might like a different Vader skin.
I agree totaly. But there are some skins out there that aren't nearly as good as others, but some people use them because they either don't know better or can't find better.
That's why I say have a back-log of other skins and models that are good, but weren't voted "Best" by us.
