Hello fellow JK2/JKA modders,

I'm about to finish my 4th 'Shadow-Blade' skin and post it to jka/2 files.

I'm planning to make a JKA and a JK2 version.

I am wondering, wich shaders would you suggest to use for this skin? I already thought about using some glow shaders for the JKA version, but I'm still wondering wich kind of shader I should use to get the ingame quality a bit the same as this modview version. usually I use the standard metal/shiny shader, but I think it might mess up some bits of the texture, instead I was thinking about a specular shader only, but I don't want the skin to go pitch black with a low light source. (please notice that I'm still a beginner if it comes to shadering.)

The skin:

sb_iv_front_back_red.png

Thank's already,

Raschu

Edit: I just noticed a white spot on his head, that's not supposed to be there

Hmm...I think the team colors are a tad harsh. Maybe you could make them look a tad worn-out/faded since it's only covering part of the armor?

I like the texturing, though. Good quality.

Your critic inspired me to make a battle worn version, thx.

Hmm! If you're doing a battle-worn version, I'd suggest dirtying the highlights some.

Hmm, maybe add a brighter visor? I think ,based off previous verions, that the visor should be brighter because it seem a bit dull

Hmm, I thought it looked nice, I mean I want to keep it a bit a dark-ish skin.

(still I appreciate the constructive critism I get.)
