Okay. This is a reskin of the prisoner model. I can tell you what the author did in one sentence. It looks like he copied and pasted the back of the blue prisoner skin onto the front, and then put the rebel symbol on that.
I can't really say that much, except to put a lot more effort and creativity. This is so simple that I can't really think of a way to suggest that. But whatever floats your boat. Or base folder, in this case.
Oh, one thing. It has come to my attention that this is supposed to be based around the npc. It is not meant to be used as a skin, although it does have the option of being used as a skin.
A new skin has been added in this version, centered around the Rebel model itself. The author has made two mistakes which let the whole skin down (although most of it is just the base Raven skin anyway) - skinning flesh over clothes always looks terrible, even more so when it's almost entirely a flat color. And the second mistake? No blending at all has been done on the "tatoos". It doesn't look so good, I'm afraid.
The author states that this file is "all about the NPCs", but frankly, it has less merit as an NPC pack than it does as a skin pack. The Rebel NPC, supposedly balanced out against the stormtroopers but not "cheapened", is not really worth the time. The only merit it has is that it'll take more than one slash to deck them. Also, they've been given more HP and far more accuracy than they should have been given, yet somehow they're easier to defeat than the base Rebels.
The author also included several soundsets, which are exact duplicate copies of baseJKA soundsets. So, most of this file's bulk is for content which didn't need to be included in the first place.
I honestly can't see a reason to download this. The NPCs are mediocre, and the skins are uninteresting. But hey, I'm not the one doing the downloading, am I?

*********************************** Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy *********************************** TITLE: New Republic Soldiers AUTHOR: Khyron Jinn E-MAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org WEBSITE: www.clanmoo.net.tc FILENAME: Republic Soldiers.pk3 FILESIZE: 1.8 MB DATE RELEASED: Sent to JK2files on 8/17 CREDITS: Myself and Darth Die, who taught me how to skin. Sounds are from JK2. INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS: If you opened this read-me, then I have a lot less to explain. Go into the "Game Data" or if you are on a mac the "Jedi Academy" folder and look carefully(but don't hurt yourself) for the folder callse "base." Drag an drop the "Rebel Elite.pk3" file, it is included in this .zip, into the "base" folder that you just discovered. Now open JKA. Here is where the real thinking comes in: "Single Player" or "Multi-Player"? I mean it, don't hurt yourself. If you choose Single Player, type "helpusobi 1" in the "console." Open the console by pressing SHIFT + `, which makes tilde (~). Now, cheats are activated. Congratulations on making it this far. Now, in the "console," type "npc spawn rebelite" then your New Republic Elite trooper will appear. Try not to surprise yourself too much. He will follow you around and fire on your enemies. Don't attack him, or he will fire on you. Now, if you chose "Multi-Player," you have another choice to make. I know, I know, it is cruel, this world, but this is why I am here, to guide you through your game. If you intend to play alone on "Multi-Player" "Mode" then type in console "devmap _____" where the ______ is the name of the map you wish to load. A map is an arena which you play JKA on. If you do not know the name of the map you wish to load, click "solo game" and from there select the map you want. Load the game, and pay attention to the name of the map. When the game loads, open the console and type "/devmap ________" where the _____ is the name of the map. When in multi-player, you must put a / in front or it will come out as speech on the server. When the map loads, hit "ESC" and then click Join. There are two options. "Join Game" or "Spectate." Click "Join Game." Now, you are playing JKA multi-player. Open the "Console" and type "/npc spawn rebelite" and your New Republic Elite Trooper will appear. Again, try not to surprise yourself. He will not follow you around, but he will fire on enemy "NPCs." NPCs are "Non-Playable Characters." The basic enemy NPC is the stormtrooper (/npc spawn stormtrooper). Now, if you wish to BECOME the New Republic Elite Trooper, type in the console "/model rebelite". You are now a New Republic Elite Trooper. Congratulations. If you intend to play with other people "on-line," you must click "Join A Game." Then click "Get new List" and from there, select the server you wish to play on. A server is where maps are played and others can join. Select one, click "Join Server" and when the map loads, type in console, "/model rebelite". You are now a New Republic Elite Trooper in front of everyone, and you have successfully followed the instructions of this read-me. Very good. For the Republic Heavy Weapons trooper, follow the same instructions, but replace "rebelite" with "rebdemo." Moron. DESCRIPTION: I took the prisoner/blue skin and got rid of the pattern on his chest, which wasn't easy, but I did it. I replaced that pattern with a Rebel Alliance insignia, cause it's cool. I also gave him somewhat of a shave, not completely, but a little bit. I enjoy the effect it creates. I got the idea because I spawned an army of rebels that came with JKA and the stormtroopers killed them all. Swiftly. The NPC is at maximum accuracy now, has 200 hp, e-11 gun, and it's supposed to have alt fire, but it doesn't use it. They are incredibly deadly, but not uber-cheap. The NPC is primarily designed for SP as the MP gun-using NPCs suck. Horribly. Oh, and this also gives sound to the basejka rebel npc, which actually did not have sounds. Believe it? THEN, I took the normal rebel skin and tore off his sleeves and added tatoos. I know the rebel insignia is a bit big on his one arm, because that's how i designed it. You'll have a hard time reading what's on his arm; that's because its in aurabesh. It says, DEATH TO IMPERIALS. I would have said DEATH TO THE EMPIRE but i needed to save a little room. BUGS: I have found none. COMMENTS: I like it. It's simple, not the prisoner, and not prisoner sounds. If you don't like it, send it back. Oh, wait, YOU CAN'T!! AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAAHAHAAA!!!
