My name is Tyler and although i am not signed up with your forum/site i plan to ASAP. However I have a question that perhaps you can help me with and is probably going to seem very stupid. I would like to ask you about skins. What are they exactly as opposed to models? How do I utilize them in my single player experiences? Lets put it this way, I am ignorant. Not 100 percent stupid with computers but relatively close. I have downloaded some models and placed them in the appropriate base folder (the usual demand) and those MODELS work. However when it comes to SKINS and putting them in the folder, I end up doing it, but utilizing them in the game? I don't understand how to. For example If I wanted to use Assaji Ventress I could do npc spawn assajv as instructed in the readme with its download or playermodel assajv just fine. (see link here) Asajj Ventress, Jedi Knight 3 Downloads, Jedi Knight 3 Star Wars but when it comes to somethnig such as a SKIN such as Nihilus, I download it into the base but have no luck in utilizing it in the game? i try playermodel nihilus and npc spawn nihilus, darth_nihilus etc. Nothing works. (see link here) Darth Nihilus, Jedi Knight 3 Downloads, Jedi Knight 3 Star Wars I mean there was no issues extracting the file into Jedi Academys base but am I doing something wrong when it comes to accessing skins!? How do I access skins as opposed to models in the game? I also couldnt figure out how to utilize your skin model pac on your websiste as seen here The Jedi Academy- Hey! You there! Its a JK3 skin pack! I know this question may seem totaly idiotc and maybe I am putting too much thought into something thats very simple? but i truly just dont understand how to access some of these things. The only skin thing to my knowledge that works correctly for me is a customization pack called spankis sith customization pack (see link here) Spanki's SITH Customization, Jedi Knight 3 Downloads, Jedi Knight 3 Skin Packs but thats simply because these "skins" are selectable at the player creation menu. I apologize for my clear idiocy and ignorance but perhaps you in all your expierence can help me understand these problems. I have attempted to be as descriptive as possible using examples. If you can perhaps relay back answers to me with examples I could understand this very elusive answer. Please help me I truly want to have the ultimate expeirence with Jedi Academy. Cliche but necessary "Help me Obi Wan, you're my only hope"

You`re talking about Jedi Academy skins/models and you posted this in Jedi Outcast section. Nice. :rolleyes: Anyway, to answer your questions. The difference between skins and models is in their internal structure. Open any skin file and see what`s inside. Then, do the same with some model. See the difference? Models can be used in Singleplayer and Multiplayer by choosing them on the species selection screen. Skins are intended for Multiplayer only, but you can use them in Singleplayer too with the help of that "playermodel" command. If the command doesn`t work with some skins, then you`re probably entering the wrong model folder name. Open .pk3 file in question with Packscape, WinZip or WinRAR and see what name author gave to the model folder. Use that name with "playermodel" command.
