You know, sometimes I wonder if Hayden Christiansen knows how funny he sounds as a player model, with those Episode 3 sounds. I can just imagine him playing Jedi Academy and going "God, why did I have to sound like that...?"
Anyway, that was totally unrelated to the skin, so my apologies. I'm not planning on comparing this version with the previous, so judging by the read-me it seems like the only changes here are the addition of BOT, NPC, and SP support, along with a couple extra skins. That's all good. It doesn't look like much else was changed, so here's the review of the first version, and you can find screenshots there as well:
Let me say that I've seen better Anakin models and I've seen worse ones. Yes, I'm talking about the model. This is a skin, so I'm just commenting on the model choice. It's not bad. The face looks a little bit better than the average face I've seen on most Anakin models. The rest of the texturing, however, is average. Looking at it I can't really see anything that makes it stand out from most of the other Anakin models out there. The hair is just as weird as the rest, the face is just as blurry (unfortunately that's what you get when you photosource) and the clothes are just the same color.
By this point in the game we're just getting minor tweaks of the dozens of Anakin skins out there already. This one's definitely not bad, but unfortunately most of them look to be just about the same to me. Maybe I've just seen too many of them... However I suppose that's saying something good. I've seen bad Anakin skins and models, and this isn't one of them.
Just one thing about the original model. It deforms fairly well all around... except one vertex. If you look at the right shoulder area in ModView during the animations you'll see it. Unnoticible for the most part, though. Enjoy wink
