Ataris21, I hereby dub you the king of glowing, shiny objects. This file goes hand-in-hand with Mindwarp...Nice and glowy.
So, this is pretty straightforward. Alora, cultist, reborn, reborn_new, reborn_twin and tavion_new have all been modified. Their clothing has been darkened, and guess what? Now they have shiny neon glows on them! While the idea may seem stupid to some people, I personally like it. It's crazy enough to be fun, and it's good-looking enough to be usable. The skins mentioned above all recieve glowy neon-looking lines and symbols. There are some other changes listed in the readme, but that's the gist of it.
Visually, everything was well-spaced out, no big blotches and no random symbols stamped on in odd places. Everything seemed to have a purpose for the design, and the symbols that are there were placed nicely. I was impressed - it looks good.
I'm not a skinner, so I can't say much about the mechanics at work here. I'm pretty sure that the file size could have been brought down but that doesn't matter once you get in-game. Also, if I'm not mistaken, these overwrite the default JA skins. Although, really, that's kind of the point of the mod, so no gripe there.
As a suggestion, maybe you can add more cool effects to those glows in the future. Maybe make them pulsate and stuffyeah. I think it would look awesome.
Game: Jedi Academy Title: Light of Ragnos Version: 3.8 Author: Ataris21 Email: email@example.com Website: http://josh.cipherblog.net/ Completion date: October 24, 2008 Description: Overwrites all of the Disciples of Ragnos skins to make them glow and have orange eyes and some other modifications. Version history: 3.8 Removed Desann and Tavion, removed Desann npc, renamed reborn2 npc to reborn_blue, added alora2 npc, removed all modifications save head for New Tavion, made skins use modified skin files rather than copied textures to decrease file size, edited sabers, and made new icons to keep things looking consistent. 3.7 New overwrite skins were made for Alora, New Reborn, Cultist, and Reborn Twin. New multiplayer icons were made for them as well. The skins were made from scratch using GIMP so that they are now much higher quality. The filesize and complexity were also drastically decreased due to my tinkering of the skin files rather than making copies of the original textures to serve as the team support. Just look at the screenshot to see all that was changed. 3.6 New NPC's: desann2 and reborn2 New sounds for the New Reborn Team support for all players Bot support remains the same New multiplayer icons New overwrite skins for Alora, Cultist, Desann, Reborn, New Reborn, Reborn Twin, Tavion, New Tavion Restored sabers in multiplayer and the cult now uses the Firebrand hilt 3.5 New Red Team skin for Alora. 3.4 All NPCs, sabers, icons, characters, shaders, and sounds are done. 3.3 All of Desann's sounds from Jedi Outcast have been restored. Cultist is finished. Shaders and sounds are good to go. 3.2 Almost all of the skins have been touched up or been completely redone (Tavion and New Tavion especially). Desann is no longer black. There are no blobs on characters now. 3.1 Remake of the New Reborn complete with new sounds, team support, and icons. 3.0 Custom face portraits have been made for all characters, which means I took a three different pictures of every character for team support. Every character has team support, and with only two colors, not three or more - purple and red. The blue team color for the Cultist and others has been restored, so it looks perfectly normal now. The annoying cult saber reskin has been removed. The Reborn Twin has been given a makeover. Alora's leg texture has been improved. Alora's face has had its natural color restored, and the glowing patterns on her face have been changed a lot, including that she now has a Sith symbol on her head. The Cultist now has two colors, and its textures look more realistic. Tavion looks far better than her impossibly hard to see skin and textures. New NPC's have been added. For Desann on the Blue Team type in "desann2." For a Reborn on the Blue Team type in "reborn2." Reskins of the original Reborn and Tavion are now available. All reborn NPC's look the same, except for the blue team version. All of the characters now have orange, glowing eyes and dark faces, making them look very evil. (And cool, too.)
