What your looking for is a modeler, not a skinner. The reason being that there is not a model already in JA that looks remotely close to this. This would make an awesome addition as another custom model for Jedi Academy but I doubt any modelers will be willing to help in the making of this. But then again, I've been wrong before. I noticed that one of the reference pics was a model? Is that model available for download? If so that would certainly help the chances of this getting skinned.

if the model is available, im 99% sure it would be ported. And this was being made a while ago. I dont remember the name of the guy who was making it though.

Now that's just paranoia. I'm sure you're aware that .gif images can't be turned into 3D models....


I don't know how, and I don't know why, but this is totally Sheep's fault.

Ill just assume you knew what he meant and not spell it out XP PS, youre wrong. You can model from a .gif file, and that technically IS turning a .gif into a 3d model ^^

Noooooo, that's making a 3D model using a gif image as a point of reference. :clueless:

"Porting" a model from one game to another, assumes there's a model to port in the first place. With StarCraft, there's no such model, as like Diablo II (and most other games of the era), StarCraft uses sprites. You'd have better luck trying to port Tails from Sonic 2 into Quake IV.

It is possible that a third-party model has been created, but in such a case the more appropriate term would be plagiarism, as with third-party materials "porting" becomes "converting" if you have the author's consent.

Feel free to work out the semantical difference between those ones, if you wish. You could just as easily say they're both the same thing, and you'd be right, just that circumstances behind each scenario conspire to make each scenario entirely different.
