Kyle Katarn has been killed in battle. However, he was simply left on the battlefield, and not buried. Everyone knows that his ghost cannot rest until his body is buried, so he still fights for the republic, even in his ILLUMINED state.
Because everyone totally knows that! :p
Couldn't resist. Anyway, on to the skin. This skin is actually more complex than I initially thought after looking at the screenshots, which are somewhat deceiving. It looked almost like the author just did a quick invert, but that's definitely not the case. With a few minutes of study in photoshop, though, I managed to roughly recreate the effect. Each texture seems to have been super contrasted, then a rainbow gradient was overlaid on certain portions under the hue setting. That may not be accurate, but I achieved the same look by doing that. My point here is that the author shouldn't put himself down. Simplicity can be a virtue and you shouldn't put yourself down ahead of time, even if your work is bad. Worst case scenario: you're your only fan. You should always be your own fan though. :cool:
Hoo boy did I get off track. Anyway, I can't decide if I like this skin or not. It's neat, and has a shader that makes him partially transparent so he actually looks like a ghost (read the readme!), but it does overwrite the default Kyle skin, which is kind of a bummer to me. It also adds a tweak to the saber which makes it glow white (kind of like a ghost saber), but I think it would be better if that was in a separate PK3 so you chose whether or not to use it with the skin. Overall, though, an interesting idea and not too badly executed.

DESCRIPTION: Kyle Katarn has been killed in battle. However, he was simply left on the battlefield, and not buried. Everyone knows that his ghost cannot rest until his body is buried, so he still fights for the republic, even in his ILLUMINED state. There is team and bot support, and Illumined Kyle will replace the regular Kyle Katarn. As a side note, I do not expect this skin to impress anyone, as it only took about 10 minutes to create, although I do desire credit for my work if it is used in yours. BUGS: Illumined Kyle also illuminates Jan's teeth and eyes. THIS MODIFICATION IS NOT MADE, DISTRIBUTED, OR SUPPORTED BY ACTIVISION, RAVEN, OR LUCASARTS ENTERTAINMENT COMPANY LLC.
