I'm after some feedback on a mod I'm working on and I wanna find out if its been done already. (I can't find anything like it so I'm guessing it hasn't)
Basically, imagine if most of the base skins could be mixed together in a species customisation pack:
I've already got a VAST part of this mod done and I'm pretty sure there will be an awful lot of use for it for many people.
This pack allows you to mix together any of 21 (and counting) torsos and legs from base JKA. (not sure how many heads are possible yet but it currently includes all of the reborn, jedi and prisoner heads, perhaps even some more obscure ones like Morgan, Imperial Worker and the pilots)
Here's what I've got at the moment:
- 4 Reborn heads
- 3 jedi heads
- 21 torsos taken from various models
- 21 leg parts (the legs from each of the torsos)
Due to model restrictions, I've split it into two custom species. The only difference between them is one has the reborn heads, the other has the jedi ones. On the upside this means you can choose between the two voices too. Also note that when using a Reborn head, to someone who doesn't have the file you would appear as a default reborn and when using a Jedi head, you will appear to be the default Jedi model.
Here's a few example set-ups:
Also I want to meet a small issue head on here, when using reborn legs with jedi heads you don't get the small crotch flap thing. Still looks great, just don't be surprised to find it missing, this is, again, a model restriction)
Basically, I want to know if you guys think its a good idea, If you would use it and if its been done before.
Additionally, I could be able to include way more base parts (and fix a few things like there being no life support box on the front of the Pilot torsos) if a modeller wishes to join me in this project (would just be a case of grafting the parts onto one model, no new parts needed). Shout if you're interested.
Again, any feedback is welcome. =D
I feel like I've seen this before, but this looks better. Would love to see more of this, would be great for RP's.
There was a small mod similar to this called 'Human Male 2.' It only had the jedi model with a few choices. I say keep at it! That's a great first mod.
Thanks much guys =D
katanamaru;5368998That's a great first mod.
I fail hard.
You are forgiven =P My fault for lurking these forums for 3 years anyway xD
we seem to have gone of topic...anyways yet to come:
- bespin cop parts
- kyle parts
- lando parts
- Various imperial parts
- chiss parts
- luke parts
- others as I think of them
(note, these probably wont include heads)
I noticed from that first image that you have at least three pants of the same type with color... Perhaps it would be better to have just one that can have it's color changed through the ingame menu?
It looks totally awesome..I'm just worried about what other clients will see if they don't have the pack.
^ He 'jes explained they'll see the model of the head.
This is a strange... yet a great idea. Keep up the work.

I'm pretty sure there is a cap on the number of parts I can add; if I hit that I guess I'll have no choice but to give that a go-Raz0r-;5369057I'm just worried about what other clients will see if they don't have the pack.well: [QUOTE=MUG806;5368958]Also note that when using a Reborn head, to someone who doesn't have the file you would appear as a default reborn and when using a Jedi head, you will appear to be the default Jedi model.
Glad you're all liking it =D
Also, I pose this question to you all: Would it be worth the bigger file size and menu clogging to add several more species menus each containing a single head to allow you to mix them with the parts too (things like the pilot heads, the imperial worker, luke, kyle, Lando, Morgan, etc) Once again due to model restrictions (unless a modeller wants to help out) I cant put all the heads in one menu.
