This mod includes 4 new skins and 4 new hilts, each with a custom model :) I looked at the skins first, and they are rreskins of the 'new' reborns and some other guy, who I think is the 'Jedi' model. The faces for these two skins have remained the same, which looks a little similar, but they are all wearing different clothes/armour which makes them look polished. :D
Every skin also has a part in their clothing with is luminated, like a green circle that glows e.t.c. As for the two reborn reskins, they look like the people from the film 'Tron' which are very cool, they have lots of green light-up patterns and lines over their clothing, and they look very nice. The only thing I didn't like was some of the face art. I'm not sure which skins it was on, but they have lines all over their faces for some reason... Face paint maybe? But the main point is that it doesn't look very good, especially when all the other parts look good. :(
Now onto the saber hilts. The models are very good, but the artwork on them is somewhat lacking.. They're covered in what looks more like a simple color than a texture, grey,white, green. There is the odd texture on em which looks okay, but unfortunately they are kinda ruined by the other parts. There is also a 'Katana' sword which, despite again having i cool model and shape, looks rubbish because of poor texturing :( There is also a double bladed version of this sword which is a nice addition :)
So, there are 2 single bladed lightsaber hilts and 2 double bladed hilts, all with new blades to match em. Another thing - don't you think the sword ought to be shiny, instead of dull grey? Overall some very nice skins, but the hilts are not as good as I hoped.
Chemix/Darth Tarion/ Sith Lord Dactus skin data: Backstory for skin: Long ago during the 4th great war of the sith, one of the sith troopers found new found hope in the jedi dream rather than the sith nightmare he had been striding to help create. He escaped to courascant where he joined the jedi order. For his treachery the sith had him captured during the battle of the Dauntuine. He attempted to escape but fell before the sith lord Dactus. Dactus rebuilt him as a weapon, a weapon to wipe out the jedi order. During that time he became the feared Darth Tarion, the leader of the sith space forces. Chemix was able to regain concuisness and call the republic for support. The sith base was crushed and so began the turn of the tide in the war. Dactus was recovered, his neural interface was badly damaged by a jedi designed virus that was destroying the computer systems, he was plugged into the computers when the virus was attacking. He was retrained as a jedi with a clean slate afterwares. Chemix was no where to be found after the battle. He now fights the machine beneath the skin for controle in his quest to become fully human again- note this story is a fictionalwriting and in no way related to the person who made this skin (besides the fact that I wrote it) , it was made for the enjoyment of the other players using this skin and or just reading this readme.
