File Description

This mod was extremely hard to test out because you can't test siege on your own, GRR. So, all I could really do with this was test out the character changes on the select character screen, and have a look at the models in multiplayer. If you've lost me, don't worry. This is, as the name suggests, a Siege mod which basically replaces old siege classes/characters with more prominent ones such as darth vader. Whilst the models/skins are not on review here, as they are from other author's, the mod itself has proved extremely hard to get a good look at, so I'm going to direct you to the readme for any indepth information.

However from what I did manage to try, this mod seems to work perfectly fine, and although it's not particularly inspiring, if you wanted to play as Darth in Siege, well, this is for you. The Han Solo models/skins aren't as high quality as the Darth Vader, by Mars Marshall, but it has the general appearence of him. So yeah, If you're a siege player (which I confess I have only played once ) and you want a new character, have a look. Oh, all the skins/models here are available in multiplayer as well as siege, so If you have the individual pk3 files for these models, you will need to remove them :)

--------------------------------------------------------

== So what does this do? ==

Excellent question. You're very smart for asking.

Well, probably the first thing that you'll notice is that this mod also works as a skinpack. This file gives you two
Han Solos (one in his "A New Hope" vest, the other in his "Empire Strikes Back" jacket), Luke Skywalker in his gray ESB
flight suit, Darth Vader, an AT-AT pilot, and a Biker Scout, all of which are selectable in all Multiplayer game modes.

But the REAL thing that this mod does, the purpose for which it was designed, is this: it replaces certain classes in
Siege mode with the characters you've come to know and love from the Star Wars films. Tired of playing as some random
Rebel soldier or a nameless Dark Jedi Reborn? Wondering where exactly Han is during this supposed "Battle of Hoth"
you're playing? Well, with this patch, I'll tell you where he is: he's on the front line!


Here's the full breakdown of who's who on Hoth, Korriban, and the Desert, with the changes marked with a *:

			Hoth				Korriban			The Desert
		Rebels		Imperials	Jedi		Reborn		Rebels		Mercenaries
		-----------------------------	---------------------------	---------------------------
Assault:	Han Solo*	Snowtrooper	Kel Dor Male	New Reborn	Han Solo*	Rodian Merc
Heavy Weapons:	Chewbacca	Stormtrooper	Luke Skywalker*	Desann*		Chewbacca	Trandoshan
Demolitions:	Kyle Katarn*	AT-AT Pilot*	Kyle Katarn*	Cultist		Kyle Katarn*	Gran Merc
Scout:		Lando		Biker Scout*	Rodian Male	Reborn		Lando		Boba Fett
Tech:		Jan Ors		Imperial Tech	Twi'lek Female*	Tavion*		Jan Ors		Human Merc*
Jedi:		Luke Skywalker*	Darth Vader*	Jedi Trainer*	Alora		Luke Skywalker*	Tavion*


Also (for no reason other than that I could), I changed the Kel Dor's and the Rodian's clothes on Korriban. I was kinda getting bored with their old Jedi robes anyway.

And probably the coolest feature of this mod: not everyone playing Siege with you needs this patch for it to work on your
computer! Sure, to them you'll still look like a boring ol' Rebel soldier... but on your screen, you're Han Solo! 

--------------------------------------------------------

== What to expect in Version 2, should it ever happen ==

There's still a pretty big list of stuff I'd like to do for the next version of this, if possible:

I originally wanted Luke on Hoth to be in his orange Rebel flightsuit without a helmet , but I could only find fairly
cheesy-looking painted-on reskins of it. I've heard rumors that HapSlash is working on a model for a Flightsuit Luke,
but it wasn't out when I was putting this mod together.

There HAS to be a way to change what lightsabers the different characters hold, right? I mean, sure, it doesn't make
sense for Luke to be using a double-bladed saber at all, but I had to keep it like that so that the mod still works
when you're playing with people who don't have Movie Star Siege. But I would want to at least change WHICH saber-staff
he uses, and find one that at least looks a bit closer to the saber he had in Empire. If only I could figure out how...
but the logical solution doesn't seem to work.

I want to figure out a way to change out Lando and Kyle on Hoth (seeing as how they probably weren't there for the
battle) WHILE KEEPING THEM on the Desert. The problem is that while the Assault and Jedi classes on Hoth are DIFFERENT
Assault and Jedi classes than the ones on the Desert, the Scout and Demolitions classes are the same on both maps.

The Luke and Han models were designed for Jedi Outcast, so while they work for the Siege mode on Academy, they all
end up acting kinda wonky when you use them in a FFA with dual sabers. Problem is, though, that the only way to fix
this is to change the bone structure in the model, which I don't have a clue how to do. If someone with the know-how
would take the initiative to convert these skins for Jedi Academy, that would be awesome.

I would maybe want to replace Jan Ors with Leia as the Rebel Tech, probably both on Hoth and the Desert, but I couldn't
find a Leia model besides the one in her Boushh disguise. If anyone has seen a good Leia (maybe in her Hoth gear),
drop me a line.

And MAYBE I would want to tinker with the classes on the Star Destroyer bonus map... but they really don't make any
difference, since you just jump into a ship and never see your player model again.

--------------------------------------------------------

== Distribution Notes ==

This mod was created to be enjoyed by everyone, so feel free to distribute this pk3 as much as you'd like without my
permission. Give it to all your friends. Post it on other websites (so long as all six readme files are still in the zip,
that is!). Spread the wealth.

If you want to use this mod as a component for something else you're cooking up, though, I'd appreciate it if you'd
drop me a line at ramutboxo@hotmail.com and explain what you're up to. And if you want to use one of the skins for
something, contact the respective author.

--------------------------------------------------------

== Big Ups and Shout-Outs ==

I said it before, and I'll say it here again: thanks a million to the guys who made these skins and gave me their
permission to use them in this mod. Seriously. You dudes rock. Now that I think about it, you put WAY more effort
into this than I did.

Just like everybody else, I'd like to thank Raven Software for creating the awesome game that they did. (Now make some
new Siege maps already!)

And thanks to George Lucas for creating three awesome movies and two mediocre ones (I'll leave which are which up to
the reader), which established the Star Wars universe.
