Behold, for within roughly a week's time, another Starkiller model has arrived upon JKfiles' dark vault.
This particular version is not in essence a completely new model that the other one was. Using the Jaden model as a base, the creators built off our SP protagonist and shaped him into the protagonist of the much more recent game "The Force Unleashed." Gaze, and behold, but do not become disappointed, for the creators wish to announce that this version is merely a teaser, rather than a full proper release. As such, you can more than certainly expect a new, more powerful version to compete with DLX's model in the near future, complete with revamped face and new outfit choices, of course.
Speaking of which, what outfits are we blessed with? Not much, just the standard "training gear" you often see him in, along with a malevolent Sith Robe of sorts that I never actually beheld before. Quite imposing, indeed =_,=. So, in likeness and appearance, it still has a little ways to go, of course. There are little bits and pieces that the authors are aware need to be fixed which leads me to reiterate the bugs they are aware of:
There are some weighting problems here and there that we hope to fix for future release, face and some other textures aren't finished yet.
The face is not rigged yet, so expect a cold blank stare for a while until that's fixed =_o there are also a few minor clipping problems with the sith robe version, but this is to be expected. Otherwise, you really can't go too wrong with it. I guess the only problems I have with this model lie within the sound department. Most of them are Jaden, and there's only one sound. This wouldn't really irk me normally, considering the status of the game, but did ya really have to use that taunt over and over again in the sound directory, including in the victory sector? I mean c'mon...
I guess the only thing I should probably mention before wrapping this up would be that there's no new extras besides the sounds, but here's hoping the authors will =_= fix that as well. My piece is said, my mouth becomes useless. Let your eyes glaze over once more, and then let your hand do your mind's bidding...

*********************************** Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy *********************************** TITLE: Galen Marek (Starkiller) V1 AUTHOR: UnsungHero and Schrödinger E-MAIL: [email protected] and [email protected] WEBSITE: None FILENAME: Galen Marek (Starkiller) V1 DATE CREATED: 09.17.2008 DATE RELEASED: 09.17.2008 CREDITS: Credits to Ravensoft for their Jaden model that parts of which were used and remodelled, to Rogue agent for letting us use some of his textures, to UnsungHero for most of modelling, to Schrödinger for doing cape, skirt-cape, hood, armor plates modelling and some minor model tweaks. INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS: UnZip/UnRar the .pk3 file into your Jedi Academy Base folder. DESCRIPTION: This is UnsungHero's and mine (Schrödinger's) Galen Marek, codename Starkiller, model that we made in hope of creating a usable model that doesn't look too bad... *cough* It's just a V1, which is supposed to be a teaser for future release that will have most of the bugs fixed aswell as the face changed to proper one, since for now we are using Jaden simply because we'd rather have a good Jaden face rather than crappy photosource of Starkiller. Well, that's pretty much all. The outfits included are "Training Gear" and "Sith Robe". BUGS: There are some weighting problems here and there that we hope to fix for future release, face and some other textures aren't finished yet. COMMENTS: We hoped to create a usable Starkiller that wouldn't make anyones eyes bleed, the idea came up some time ago when UnsungHero asked me to make a Jaden reskin into Starkiller just to see how it would look like, but later we decided to actually make full-blown model, look out for V2 that will be released in the future since this is more of a teaser than proper release.
