File Description

My first impression, when I opened the zip file, and took a look at the skin, was that the author spent more time on the readme, then the actual skin itself. If anything, this skin looks like a simple Inversion of the original Hapslash's skin. However not to misjudge, I took the skin, and inverted it. To my surprise, it did not look completely like the Blackhole Trooper. At the very least, the author inverted the original skin, and modified it (mainly the white parts) to be black.

Now the main problem with this skin, is that it simply looks like an inversion (whether it really is or not). And those are never really appealing to the eye. The entire model should have been reskinned in a manner, which doesn't use curiously inverted-looking toning.

There is also a "secret" version of the skin with the JO logo pasted on it, if you care for it enough your probably in . In that case just take a look at the readme for the command you need.

As a Star Wars fan I appreciate everything the films, comics, games and 

books have to offer, but one thing I love more than anything is the masked 

charicters. Darth Vader, Boba/Jango Fett, and of course, troopers. Troopers 

of all kinds, eras, shapes and colors. One trooper I have always liked but 

never seen in JA has been the Shadow Storm Troopers, otherwise known as 

Blackhole Troopers. This skin is a simple one but includes Teamcolors, bot 

support, both friendly and enemy NPC's, Sounds(from the JKII Swamptrooper 

and several other troopers in JO and JA) and a hidden special skin for my 

friends at 5 years going strong! Keep it up boys! The 

<SL> skin can only be accessed through command line or through the latest 

JAplus plugin. The Command line is /model blackholetrooper/default_sl.

 Here is a short history of the Blackhole trooper.

The shadow stormtroopers, sometimes called Blackhole stormtroopers because 

of use under Agent Blackhole, were specialized Imperial stormtroopers.Their 

most distinguishing feature was their all-black armor—a stark contrast to 

the typical white armor common to other stormtroopers. This unique black 

armor provided some stealth benefits, which resulted from the 

stygian-triprismatic polymer material used in the production of the armor.

Shortly after the Battle of Yavin, Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa went on a 

mission to Vorzyd V, the &quot;Gambler's World,&quot; where they were supposed to 

disrupt the Imperial gambling operations with the support of the president 

of the world. However, the operation was disrupted by Blackhole himself, and 

platoons of his stormtroopers were fighting the local resistance and the 

Alliance troops.

Lord Shadowspawn led legions of shadow stormtroopers against New Republic 

forces at the Battle of Mindor in 5 ABY.

In 10 ABY, Zasm Katth commanded &quot;Darktrooper Teams&quot; (such as Darktrooper 

Team Two), which were comprised of black-clad stormtroopers. Grath was one 

of them. It is unknown if this had any connection with the shadow 


In 11 ABY, a squad of shadow stormtroopers formed a bodyguard for aspiring 

Dark Lord Carnor Jax during his attempt to take control of the Empire; it is 

believed that these were soldiers from Blackhole's old elite unit, but it is 

not known how they had come into service with Jax, or whether their 

attachment to him implies any contact with Blackhole. It is possible they 

were some of the forces placed under his command by the Imperial Ruling 

Council following the Battle of Endor. It is notable that Jax himself had 

formerly served in Blackhole's old unit.

Although crack troops, they were slain by Kir Kanos on Yinchorr. The only 

noticeable difference between Jax's shadow stormtroopers and the original 

group were black viewplates on the helmet. The first Blackhole stormtroopers 

had white viewplates.


 * The shadow stormtrooper has been produced as a collectible Twice, Both 

from Gentle Giant Studios. One was a full-size mini-bust, the other was a 

series of &quot;chase&quot; micro-size Bust-Ups. 

    Hasbro produced a shadow stormtrooper action figure for the 2006 San 

Diego Comic Convention, although it was only sold at The 

exclusive figure is referred to as a &quot;shadow stormtrooper&quot; on the packaging; 

however, the Databank entry has the name as &quot;Blackhole stormtrooper&quot;. The 

shadow stormtrooper items are entirely black except for silver lenses and 

very dark gray gloves.

Hasboro also made an Unleashed Shadow Stormtrooper in 2007 as a Wal-Mart 

Exclusive. This prototype for the shadow stormtrooper has it completely 

black with a very dark navy blue body glove. As these are two different 

troops with two distinct names and decorations, it is entirely possible that 

these two squadrons are not as closely related as previously thought.

I enjoy making skins, and I enjoy getting feedback on those skins. If you 

have any constructive criticisim please post it in the comments section. 

I'll see it and take it under consideration. 

This skin was a quick one to make and I may update it later if demand is 

large enough, Also I might take a simaler route and make a Storm Commando 

based off the Scouttrooper and a Nova Trooper. 

If you would like to send me feedback directly please feel free to send it 

to my email adress above.

Also, if you'd like to edit/borrow this skin, please email me first. Thanks!!
