I'm sure it's not a horrible thing to do, by using a model made for KOTOR in academy, right? I mean, if you use a modded model, is it REALLY porting? I personally think not. Female Mandalorians, Knights of the Old Republic 2 Downloads, Knights of the Old Republic 2 Characters Female mandalorian. Yeah, sure. We've already GOT one... Right? Yup. But it ain't the right one. You see, in the latest chapter of "Remainder" my fic, a character named Kaen'a has been introduced. A female mandalorian clan leader, who just suffered a very large scale attack on her camp, and is now imprisoned with General Jaxun himself. Seperate cells, of course. In the next chapter, General Jaxun will rescue Kaen'a, and one of her men. It will explore the six days they have to outrun other clan's search parties for them, until The Saber arrives. General Jaxun's personal starship. It'll be a tough and long wait. For reference... Remainder, the story I write. Remainder - Imperial Assault 2: Rise of the Empire It'd be rather easy to get this model in JKA, and rename it. Sure. But... There's one thing. I do not exactly feel like having a helmet on her, to more effectively state her identity. Maybe a helmeted version too. Who knows. Kaen'a, however. Is a dark skinned female. No, not megan fox style. She's black. There. Hope somebody doesn't take that as a racist comment. I'm sure somebody might. So. Dark skinned. Well, the only time we've ever seen that in star wars is Lando and Windu. Well, we've surely got a few EU ones here and there. Frankly, I wonder why dark skinned humans are so -rare- in Star Wars, so I decided to go with dark skin for this character. Which is funny, because the previous woman that Jaxun was involved with was a pale skinned red headed peace-sayer. Well, that doesn't make a crap of sense, now does it? Now he's gonna' be involved with a dark skinned dark haired war-lover... Well, they did both have green eyes... Either way. ...Would long hair clip through the model? Or is it possible to keep it on the shoulders..? Come to think of it, I have never actually seen a long haired model on JKA... Well, there's some experimenting to do! As for color used... Red. Definately red. Fits the character's firey personality the most. But as for the actual face itself... Hm... Who's a good reference pic..? Let the imagination flow. Whateva'. I just need to find and talk to the guy who modeled it, and ask for his permission. I'm sure he/she won't have much an issue with it. Somehow, I think this will turn out like alot of my model requests... Un-answered. I'd gladly do this myself. But I simply can't download anything for modeling because my internet is slower than a 56K modem! No! I'm not kidding you! We've gotta' pay 60$ a month for this crap/garbage, and we CANT get another service provider! we've got crappy arse luck.

So, anybody willing to take this one up? I -am- putting together a soundset for the character. It's about all I can do. Helmeted, and un-helmeted. ...Unhelmeted seems to have far more sounds... Poo. Re-use sounds time!

Have you tried modelling yet, GMAX is free and can save you from doing all those painfully boring requests.

My internet is way too slow man. I run at speeds LOWER than 56K, usually. when I'm lucky, I get about 87k. But I can't download stuff left and right. But, they DO get done... So long as it's 1:00 AM. Great news, right? Seriously, though. Is anybody interested?

I mean, if you use a modded model, is it REALLY porting?

No, it wouldn't be, except that model isn't

a model made for KOTOR

It's a simple edit to a preexisting KotOR model, which you can see if you read through the description:

Inyri took the male model and made some changes to it to give you the female version.

Yes, it is still ported.

No, it is not okay.

If Inyri was still here (she may be), she'd rip you a new one discourage it.

Now, Mikouen, however, is likely to rip you a new one should you pursue this.

Hm, kay'. Well, could a new one be made then? The last thing I desire is being ripped a new one.

Less trollish translation: Short of getting someone to make one from scratch: do it yourself. It won't be pretty at first, but as with all things, you get better with practice.

Even in things I don't want, I find it's better to do it yourself rather than wait for someone to do it for you. My yard is the perfect example - full of weeds, and very, very brown. Why? Because I don't bother with it. At all. Is someone going to come around and decide to beautify my lawn? No. If I cared I would have done something about it.

I simply can't. Because my internet is much too slow to download ANY software. I'm not only limited to 400 megs a day, or every couple of days, depending on use, but I also run at a blazing LESS THAN 56K. Yup. Also, the price a month is 60$. I'm getting screwed up the ass here. BUT IT DOESNT STOP THERE... There are NO internet services availible that I/we can currently afford. One of them is good, and damned fast for 500$. Something hard to pull off in this current economy, especially when you've got bills to pay. I've thought of going dial-up, but that costs money, and takes more time... It might actually be faster, however... It's very hard to do CRAP with this internet. I can't do ANYTHING huge. So... Downloading a decent 3D modeling software program is utterly POINTLESS. Basically, all I can do is write, and come up with concepts. If I could download all of this stuff, I would gladly model it all on my own. I know I could do it damned well with about a month of practice, but currently..? I'm screwed.

This is why I constantly ask for someone to help me out. Besides, I need this stuff to tell the whole story of Remainder anywhom. I can download 50 meg files, but I can only do that once every couple of days. I am not the only one on here. My great aunt does her work here, my father and step mother are on here alot, and including me, who's constantly on these forums. Our internet is constantly being wasted and used up. There's simply no downloading anything larger than 50 megs every couple of days. Our internet dies just going to some websites. I can only go to youtube twice. THAT is why I ask for help, because I have limitations that will not be raised until I move, or can afford better internet. I'm 100 yards away from service, man.

ya, just have a friend download it, stick it on a thumb drive, and install on your machine.

Get Blender for its sculpting tools also if your going to be modeling humans.
