***NOTE*** This skin works in BOTH JK2 and JKA.
Reborn’s, love them or loath them, they are one of the main characters in JK2 and JKA, and are probably the most commonly reskinned characters. Much of the time, the Reborn player model is reskinned by new skinners, since it is a fairly simple model to reskin. However, once in a while, we get an experienced author who takes a crack at the good old Reborn model, and comes out with a quite spectacular reskin. This is one of those times!
Raschu here brings us his excellent looking Mystic Dragon Reborn’s skinpack. True to its name and theme, these skins certainly do have a ‘dragon’ or lizard like feel about them. With the scaly skin on the face, the lizard like eyes and some pretty nasty teeth, these look like a group of lizard people you really wouldn’t want to mess around with. ;)
Included here are a variety of different coloured skins, there are ones with green faces, silver faces, one with a mixture of green and orange, and even a Darth Maul themed one with a black and red face, to name but a few (there are lots here!). The Desann soundset used for the sounds also works well for these skins. Team colours are also included, where the robes have been colourised to each teams colour, however there is only one skin to choose from for each team.
There are a few things I feel could be improved upon however. Although considering the overall very good quality of these skins, there aren’t many. One of the main things is the lack of bot support, which I feel should be included if a v2 is made. Another thing is that I think it would be cool to try and find some custom sounds to use for these skins, perhaps some hissing snake noises, or other reptilian noises to add that bit extra depth to the characters.
Overall however, this is an excellent and very large skinpack. It is all the more impressive considering what a unique and different set of skins has been made out of the humble Reborn skin. I look forward to seeing more from you Raschu!
If you guys like the look of this skinpack, then give it a download. I definitely recommend it! :)

*************************************** Jedi Knight: Jedi Outcast/Jedi Academy *************************************** TITLE: Mystic Dragon Reborns AUTHOR: Raschu E-MAIL: email@example.com WEBSITE: www.jedi-modding-hd.co.nr FILENAME: Dragon_Reborns.pk3 FILESIZE: 5729.21 KB DATE RELEASED: 8/1/2008 CREDITS: Credits to Ravensoft since I re-used some of their textures (including bits of Desann's face and hands). (and thanks for Phonock's Vapthes skin, gave me the inspiration). INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS: Place this file into your Base folder. You know the usual stuff <_< DESCRIPTION: Reborn skins! JK2/3files is full of them. Most are not very creative though there are some better ones for example: Vapthes from Phonock. That skin got me inspired to try to make a reborn skin that (like Vapthes) didn't stuck to the standard reborn feeling (you know, the crusader thing). This led me to Drake. Using textures from Desann the skin began to have a dragon like feeling. It all looked great in modview but ingame you could clearly see the 'real' mouth sticking out. It was frustrating, but one night browsing the web I found a shader that solved the problem! The skinpack has serveral skin colours to choose from. There are 3 diferent torso's to choose from but only the default torso comes with all the head colours. The other torso's are: Drake Dark: a ninja like skin, though it also has a dark-mage/sith-lord feeling to it. Necromancer: This skin was originaly made by me using the Jeditrainer model, I wanted to make a Diablo II Necromancer, but I wasn't satisfied with it. It looks awsome on drake though, my fav would be using the White/Silver head. I hope I made something original out of the silly reborn =P BUGS / COMMENTS: Bugs: There is a shader warning about the face when you enter the game or when you change a skin. This DOES NOT affect the game play in any way though. Comments: This skin is free to use in movies as long as you enter my name and the skin name in the credit list! You can use this skin for a model or re-skin as long as you give credit to me! /============================= THIS SKIN WORKS IN BOTH GAMES =============================/ This skin will work in JK2 ánd JK3. In JK2 you will hear Desann; in JK3 you will hear the default male voice. THIS MODIFICATION IS NOT MADE, DISTRIBUTED, OR SUPPORTED BY ACTIVISION, RAVEN, OR LUCASARTS ENTERTAINMENT COMPANY LLC.
