Well well, what do we have here! We’ve already had skins from Knights of the Old Republic, and even a Yuuzhan Vong model/skin. But now from the furthest reaches of the Star Wars Expanded Universe, Beaker Bongload brings us a Cade Skywalker skin!
Unless you have read some of the Star Wars Legacy comics by Dark Horse, you probably wont know who Cade Skywalker is. I don’t really want to spoil the story for anyone who hasn’t read these great comics, so I wont say too much. ;)
Basically the Legacy series is based about 130 years after the Star Wars Original Trilogy, and Cade Skywalker is a descendant of Luke Skywalker (the name is a bit of a give away I guess!).
This pack contains Cade plus team skins, and also a separate .pk3 with a special Sith Lords Clan version.
First off, having been reading the Legacy comics, I can say that this is a very accurate representation of Cade. Sometimes Star Wars themed re-skins don’t much resemble the character they are supposed to be, but this one is a fantastic skin that looks just like Cade, like he’s jumped straight out of the pages of the comic…and then into your computer screen! Also, the model the author has chosen to reskin is the perfect choice for this character. The team skins are also distinct in their own way, and not just versions of the same skin, with some blue or red bits. The hair, clothing and everything is different colours, which I thought was a very nice touch.
The clan skin, as far as I could see, doesn’t actually have any clan references on it at all, so really it would be suitable for general use too, for people who like the style of that skin. Think of it more as a sort of a ‘tattooed evil Cade’!
There was one problem I noticed though; put the normal Cade skin in your base folder and the normal Cade and team skins will be available in game. However, if you put only the clan Cade skin in your base folder, and when you select him ingame, the skin doesn’t work (at least it didn’t for me) it just shows the default Kyle skin. However, if you put BOTH the clan and the normal Cade skin .pk3s in your base folder, the clan Cade skin will replace the red team skin for the normal Cade.
It’s not a big problem, but it is a bit of an annoyance if you want to be able to pick from all four skin versions ingame.
Other than that, this is an excellent skin, and it gets a very big thumbs up from me! :thumbsup:
Fans of the Legacy comics should love this skin, and it has appeal to a wider more general audience too because of its excellent quality. I highly recommend this as a download!
Go on, what are you waiting for…download this skin you must! Use my Jedi mind powers I am!
Ok, ok…Yoda I am not…

*********************************** Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy *********************************** TITLE: Cade Skywalker AUTHOR: Beaker Bongload E-MAIL: email@example.com WEBSITE: http://www.sithlordsclan.com FILENAME: zzzCade.pk3 FILESIZE: 8.30 MB DATE RELEASED: 15 April, 2008 CREDITS: Graves for the origional dante model and some of the more basic textures like then glove, and coat. Mars Marshal for the vader shin guards and pants texture from his Vader VM 2.2. INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS: Place the pk3 files in your Base folder. If you do NOT want the SL version of this skin to replace the red team color, please do not put the zzzcadesl.pk3 in your base folder. DESCRIPTION: Cade Skywalker was a bounty hunter and pirate, once the Jedi Padawan of Wolf Sazen. He was the son of Kol Skywalker and Morrigan Corde (also known as Nyna Calixte), as well as a descendant of Luke and Anakin Skywalker. He is the last of the skywalker line and has since turned his back on the order and his jedi heritage in the ongoing Star Wars Comic series "Legacy". For more information on Cade and compairitive photos please visit this link. http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Cade_Skywalker I have included in this file the basic skin, 2 team skins and a special Sith Lords Clan version in a seperate pk3. If you do not want the clan version please delete the pk3 from your base folder or do not put it in there to begin with. I don't want to hear about how clan skins suck or whatever, thanks. COMMENTS: There are certain things that due to the limitations of the model I can not fix, such as this is a jk2 model and does have the animation bug associated with said models. Also this model has a surface at the bottom of the torso that is meant to emulate the bottom of the shirt dante wears, as a result alot of the belt details had to be squished up to make them fit without having a gap in them. Also, this file has no sounds as I would prefer to record some of the better Cade lines from the comic but I lack the equipment to do so. If anyone wants to offer thier assistance in recording the sounds that would be great, but untill then the sounds are default Jedi. If you want to use this file in your own work, please let me know at the email address above.
