Hmmm this is a little complicated, but let me see if I have got it right; this is a reskin pack of a set of kit-bashed models made by an unknown person from the original models made by Neomarz. It’s a little confuzzeling but I think you get the idea. :P

Here Laam'inui brings us a large selection of new Mandalorian themed skins, not just as complete skins, but also for use in the species customisation screen which is a pleasing feature. I will go into some more detail further on, but I think I should paste in here the description the author gives from his readme, as it sums up most of the main points nicely.

This is a kit-bashed model made out of multiple Neomarz models; his clones and his Mandalorian. I DID NOT bash these models together; I came across the smashed together model and try as I might, I could not find out who made it. I even sent emails to Neomarz, but I received no reply. Nonetheless, credits to whoever bashed Neomarz's models together. And of course, ALL credits to Neomarz for every single model piece on this wonderful project. Without him, compilation would not have been possible. Credits for the sounds go to the Knights of the Old Republic game. Also, credits to the MovieBattles II team, from whose Mandalorian’s I borrowed a few textures, namely the Boba Fett textures which I modified to fit onto Marz's model and then tweaked. They did the majority of the work for the Boba skin. Lots of credits to Spanki for his facial textures, which I used from his Jedi Customisation pack and tweaked and modified for this pack. His work is amazing, and my reskinning his work for this pack is just because his facial textures are, in my opinion, the best.

This is an extremely large skin-pack I began making as soon as I discovered this smashed together model sometime in April-May. I've been circulating previous versions of this skin-pack among my RPG server for a while now, but I just recently got the idea to send it to JK3files (D'oh). It contains team skins, new sounds, a species customisation menu, and lots and lots of Mandalorian goodness.

Well, I think that sums most of the main points up very nicely, now let’s have a closer look at the skins themselves. There is a wide range of skins here, including an excellent looking Boba Fett. Most of the skins tend to stick to a dark colour scheme, featuring plenty of black and dark grey and other subdued colours. However a few of the skins have a nice splash of colour here and there which livens them up. I especially liked the orange and black Mandalorian armour. Not bright orange mind you, but more of a burnt orange, the two colours went together very nicely here I think.

We also have one in desert-sand coloured armour, and one in a kind of forest green camouflage armour, which was my personal favourite out of all of them. And that is to name but a few, there are plenty more to choose from ingame!

The skinning job is excellent, and I didn’t notice any bugs whilst I was testing these skins out. The range of customisation was also most impressive, with a choice of heads both with and without the helmet. Also changeable was the backpack, for which you have three different selections, the fourth one being no backpack at all.

One thing that did bug me a bit though was the shine on the armour. Personally I am not particularly fond of putting a shiny shader on armour, because the JKA version of ‘shininess’ doesn’t always look that good depending on what type of texture you apply it to. That said, there is certainly nothing wrong with the way these skins look, its just that I personally am not that fond of shiny shaders being applied to skins.

One other thing is that there is only one team skin for each team. Considering the range of skins in the default team menu, I think it would be cool if more red and blue team versions of these skins were made for use in team games.

Overall though an excellent skin-pack here, with a wide range of customisation options and good skinning.

If you are a fan of Mandalorian’s, or want a cool new skin-pack to get your teeth into, give this a download! :)

BUGS: None that I'm aware of.

COMMENTS: Species Customization Capability - Yes
New Sounds - Yes
Team skins - Yes
Bot support - No.  Nobody uses bots anyway.  They're lame.  Even if you do use bots, I'm betting by now your base folder is packed so full of PK3s with bot support that it would take 20 minutes of constant clicking to even select my bots ingame.
