I have been working on this skin,off and on, for a long time. Finaly had some free time to finish up some detail on her and need a little help beta testing what i got so far. This is Edward Perettis old JK2 model Mara Jade,and was, and still is, my absolute hands down favorite JK model of all time. If you have read any of the Dark Horse Comics ,"Emperors Hand series", then you know who this is. This is Lukes future wife,beleave it or not. Now there was nothing wrong with Edwards origional skins, I still love those, but after so much time has passed I thought it needed a makeover. Besides i just love the feel of this model,even though it was a nightmare to work with. Wich is why you dont see to many re-skins of this puppy. Its a complicated mesh to work around,but i finaly found a system that worked. Please test these beta files and let me know if there are any problems or bugs. First off is the dark version of my collection. Download here. http://members.shaw.ca/sithvicious/dark_EHmara_beta.zip (post edit: forgot to mention there is not a readme included so for those who dont know,simply extract the zip contents to your base folder:p ) Here is a teaser of other skins I have completed. These are just a few of many. This is my Major Motoko Kusanagi from the Ghost in the Shell series. An older Jedi version i did,and then scraped. May release this in another motif. Stay tuned for more.
Big "My Bad" here.
This was meant for the Jedi Academy section of the forums.
I meant to post this in that section under moding.
Could a moderator help me out here..?
Should i re-post this in the proper section and have someone delete it in this section?
Again im realy sorry for the screw up:( (Although I cant see any reason why this skin wouldn work in JK2,although i have yet to test it there,it was origionaly made for that game.)

It's been moved. No worries! The Major Motoko Kusanagi needs some shading on the white clothing areas. They look incredibly flat, as if just painted on. The Mara skin, however, looks very good. You really should make a read-me though, otherwise you're plagiarizing his model.
Hey thanks again for the thread move. Yeah im still tweaking the Ghost in the Shell version,it is rather flat. I realy gotta figure out the shader ed system. Also working on the readme but waitng return from Edward for permision to release these skins,thus the beta release. I dont think the E mail in his origional readme is in use,however i will keep trying to contact him. Anyone with any knowledge how to get ahold of Edward Peretti pleas LMK. IT would be a shame to not be able to release these:(

sithvicious I realy gotta figure out the shader ed system.
Worrying about getting the skin just right before you worry about adding a shader. Shaders can cover up a less-than-adequate skin, but it's usually pretty obvious...
a spec shader would give it the leathery shine, but otherwise, you need some depth...and totally kick ASS reskin. nothing i've done can add up to that ;)
D00d, it rocks, it's giving me a hard on, lol. Bare in mind that most SW players are geeks ;), some of them could suffer a heart attack. I'll gladly help you with the shader files. Feel free too add me to you msn list.
didnt mara jade have a purple saber? edit: a google search quickly confirms that you dont know what she looks like =/ http://www.starwars.com/databank/character/marajadeskywalker/?id=eu research man, research! also, if you can find it, get the psx game "star wars: masters of teras kasi" as shes an unlockable character.
Yes she did, but then she used a red saber afterwards marrying Luke if I'm not mistaken....
CortoD00d, it rocks, it's giving me a hard on, lol.[/QUOTE] Mission accomplished..:naughty: And your perfectly welcome to see what you can come up with,shader wise. Im just lost whn it comes to that.Im so "2d".:lol: Dont go to overboard just yet as I am awaiting for a return on my Email to Edward Peretti.His readme is very strict about permision. This could be all mute if i cant get ahold of him. [QUOTE=Corto]edit:didnt mara jade have a purple saber? a google search quickly confirms that you dont know what she looks like =/.
As i recall Edwards origional release did have a purple saber by default. I will have to fix that. And yeah it was hard to find resource material on this charactor. I know the basic story from tha starwars.com biography but I would love to get my hands on the Dark Horse comic series. Please continue to keep me true to the character.
