Dark Troopa



A skin based upon the Dark Trooper from Dark Forces.

First of all the readme has a story that gives a back-drop to the skin so if you don't mind reading it I suggest you do (just scroll below this review, it's there).

Now onto the skin...it's unfortunately one of those lacking in texture skins - before anyone gets onto me I know a trooper skin like this would be plastic and so have far less texture than cloth (I'm not that dumb!) however there is no specular map to this skin which means it looks like a single color thing instead of plastic, plastic shines incredible when the light catches it at the right angle and unfortunately on this it doesn't.

I think the skins is OK however because it's different and a much less used original model, there is lack of detail in places but it's not too bad, it's a simple trooper model that provides a nice change from the usual Kyle/Luke/Reborn re-skins we see.

Skin based upon the Dark Trooper from Dark Forces.

Info: As a veteran of the Clone Wars, Rom Mohc saw firsthand both the 
limitations and the advantages of battle droid infantry. When he rose to 
power as a general in the Imperial military, he masterminded the dark 
trooper project, which would result in an advanced battle droid meant to 
serve as a "super stormtrooper."
This ambitious project was developed in stages, as concept droids proved the 
feasibility of Mohc's designs. The Phase One dark trooper had an unfinished 
appearance, with an exposed metal skeleton cast of hardened phrik, a durable 
alloy mined primarily from the Gromas moons. The trooper was a towering 
armed with a razor-edged carving blade and arm-mounted blast shield. Its 
programming was primitive, and its drive to attack was relentless.

The Phase Two trooper was much more refined, bearing a gunmetal gray armored 
exterior reminiscent of stormtrooper uniforms. Equipped with a repulsorlift 
pack and maneuvering jets, this massive automated soldier was extremely 
agile, and typically armed with a powerful plasma shell assault cannon and 
long-range explosive rockets.

The final and most powerful model was the Phase Three dark trooper. Only one 
was known to exist, in the personal employ of General Mohc. A towering 
goliath with broad armored shoulders, this dark trooper could operate 
independently or be used as an armored powersuit. Connected to its massive 
arms were a deadly cluster of firing tubes which dispensed a seemingly 
endless supply of seeker rockets.

The dark troopers were first unleashed shortly after the Battle of Yavin, on 
the unsuspecting Alliance installation of Tak Base. The Empire launched the 
droids via hyperspace capsules, in a fashion similar to the distribution of 
deep space probe droids. The inhuman soldiers tore through all resistance, 
and devastated the Rebel outpost on the planet Talay. Investigating this 
disturbing new assault was Alliance mercenary Kyle Katarn.
He uncovered the secret dark trooper project, and traced it back to its 
source, the immense production facility aboard the Arc Hammer, General 
Mohc's flagship.

Katarn infiltrated the Arc Hammer and sabotaged the titanic vessel. The 
Emperor was so infuriated by the loss of the Arc Hammer, and the incredible 
investment in the dark trooper project, that all research into stormtrooper 
battle droids ended with Mohc's death.
