Okay, here we have the second version of the White Cloud. I'm just going to say that I'm just going over the new changes for this skin.
First off, this no longer overwrites the regular cloud skin. That blurry orange symbol that was on the first version is now gone, and shaders have been added, as well as bot support, npc support, singleplayer support, team skins, and sounds. I can certainly say that the skin looks better from last time, but it still needs a little work. The shaders, while cool, utilize the glow effect. What does that mean to you? It means you have to have r_dynamicglow set to 1. This also means that your ingame FPS will be cut in half. For some of you, your graphics card doesn't support dynamic glow. But other than that, the wolfs head on Cloud's shoulder pulsates. The biggest thing was the shader used on the skin. While it serves its purpose, it doesn't extend to cover the face. That's just disappointing that the author didn't notice that while testing this skin.
Now for a quick overview of the team skins. Instead of being white, they go with a black theme. And they aren't solid black! They do have red and blue shading on them, and the hair for each one is different. That's it.

*********************************** Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy *********************************** TITLE**: White Cloud (2.0) AUTHOR**: ZeroTM E-MAIL**: firstname.lastname@example.org WEBSITE: http://www.aof-clan.net FILENAME: White_Cloud.pk3 FILESIZE: 3,543 kb DATE RELEASED: July 21, 2006 CREDITS**: I would like to thank Jimesu_Evil for giving me permission to reskin this model that was originaly made by Broli (Modeller), Jimesu_Evil (Skinner) and V (Weighter). INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS**: Simply extract the .pk3(Model File) to the Base folder that's located by default in C:/Program Files/Lucas Arts/Star Wars Jedi Knight Jedi Academy/GameData/Base DESCRIPTION**: This is a reskin of the original AC - Cloud model by Broli, Jimesu_Evil, and V. What I did here is convert Cloud's clothes to a white color. Not pure white, but enough. Most of these textures or probably all by now are completely different to the original model and no, this is not a simple recoloring, I did make alot of these textures from scratch. Here is a list of things added or fixed in V2.0: 1) Added New Sounds (Most modified by me with Audacity.) 2) Fixed Overwriting of Cloud (Does not overwrite default Cloud) 3) Improved and Changed More Textures 4) Added Bot Support (I don't know why it was said that the previous models were said to already have bot support, but they really did not support it. This version fixes this problem and also modifies it. You will find this to be a killer bot. -_^ Also, the bot was modified to use the vigilante from Jose Carlos's First Sword pack. 5) Added NPC Support (The npc spawn code for White Cloud is /npc spawn white_cloud. This NPC also uses the vigilante and has been modified to be more challenging but not impossible to kill without dying once. I have tested this myself =). He is also set to NEUTRAL to players and ENEMY to player enemies. So he won't do anything to you, unless you attack him. 6) Added NEW TEAM skins (New and customized TEAM skins are added, you will find these quite a surprise when you choose them, so I will not say anything in this ReadMe other than, they are new.) 7) Single Player support added (Yes! You can play with White Cloud as well as the TEAM skins in Single Player, remember to select them through the HEAD selection though. The thing is that the face has not been set to move or animate, I am looking forward to adding this sometime in the future but I don't think I will be able to do this myself with my current program resources.) 8) New and custom shader (I have modified the shader and gave White Cloud a shiny glow to his body, and a simple glow that looks nice to his hair. His Wolf Symbol on his shoulder pad also pulses which is a really nice effect. Try using force speed and see what happen. -_^ BUGS: Sometimes hair twitches, and there's still that gray spot sticking out on the back but these have all been problems before and something I am looking forward to fixing in the future. NOTES: If you want to see White Cloud's shaders work to make him glow, go to video options and make sure Detailed Shaders are ON. White Cloud also uses the Vigilante as a bot or an NPC but the First Sword Pack by Jose Carlos is something you will have to download separately. COMMENTS: Big thanks to Jimesu for letting me release this reskin and the original AC - Cloud team for their hard work. ------------------------------------------------------------------ ORIGINAL README OF ADVENT CHILDREN: CLOUD STRIFE MODEL BY JIMESU_EVIL, BROLI, AND V Cloud Strife (Advent Children) ================================================= Model Name: "cloud_ac" Authors: Model: Broli Skin: Jimesu_Evil Weighting: >][V][< Email: email@example.com Sounds: No Botfiles Yes ================================================== NOTES: Some of you may notice some minor bugs with the hair.
