I didn't make it!
[FONT=Arial]Dear Jedi Masters 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"

ok..ill try to answer a question for u..ok..a model is pretty much the base of the character (shape, textures, etc.), while a skin, is just changing the texture to make it look like something else, u can adjust things while making a model, but a skin, u can only change what is on the model, such as making Kyle's hair green, but not being able change the shape of it...and for being able to spawn the character, that is in part of the bot or npc support files ( cant remember which) so if the person who made it did not add it, then u wouldnt be able to spawn them...also u can add SP support to every skin/model, you just need to know the process, which u can find out by reading the tutorial for it on JK3Files
