File Description

This is the third and seemingly final version of the Night Scout, a reskin of Monsoontide's Scout Trooper model. A quick quote from the version two review:

The textures have been lightened, and are now more of a greenish color, fitting in well with the author's initial idea of a sewery scout trooper. After all, someone has to go down there! Biggest problem with the execution of this skin is it's trying to make an environmental effect on a flat texture. The entire reason there are environmental shaders are for this purpose - reflections move, and because they don't on this skin it looks more like someone heated up his plastic armor and swirled it around a bit, then let it cool and harden. An environmental shader would go immense lengths here to make this reflected look actually work for the model.

In this version we have also been graced with team skins, which basically turn the black underlying cloth bits blue or red, depending on which team you use. Sounds are included, but once again do not function because the sounds.cfg file is pointing to the wrong folder. NPC and bot support have also been included, but the bot support was created using bots.txt so it is very likely to screw up the rest of your bots. Keep in mind for the future that bots should be done using a .bot file and a .jkb personality file, not a .jkb and bots.txt.

There have been some marked improvements in this version, most prominently being the included environment shader. This gives the skin its shimmery appearance that you might expect, rather than just trying to emulate it with flat textures. Team skins are also a little different than they were before, actually coloring the armor rather than the cloth beneath. Sounds still won't work, which is a shame, and the bot support has also been broken (it should be .bot, not .bots).

Overall, definitely not a bad update. Fixes some errors, and while not perfect is should be an interesting change to the scout trooper model. Definitely give it a look if you're a scout trooper enthusiast.

Bot Support: No NPC Support: Yes Team Support: Yes New Sounds: No

Firstly I take no credit for this model at all in any form what so ever, for two reasons

The first is because I’m not talented enough to make model let alone one this good,
The second is because I’m not talented enough to make model let alone one this good,

now some boring history!
Having been 16 years old when the return of the Jedi was released I always thought that
these troopers should have been in all the films, as they looked great!!!!!!!!! But alas
they only appeared in the 3rd movie until the Revenge of the Sith and then they where
animated! But enough of this dribble and on to the main write up.

The credits to this model are at the end of this read me file so just skip the rubbish
I’m writing and read the good part.

As I haven’t seen what the model looks like yet I’m writing this blind, but if the
jpeg image is anything to go on then I like it and that’s all that counts and if anyone
downloads it then woohoo!

What I tried to create was an effect of light reflecting off water in a sewer, that’s why
it’s the skin is so dark,

But as there are no sewer maps yet (until I learn how to use radiant) that’s why it a
night scout.

Yes I know you have asked people not send their first skins in but I couldn’t resist
doing this because I won’t to see my son’s face when (if) it gets placed on the web site.

I have only been playing this game for six months after retiring and have only just
learnt to do this as I have loads of time on my hands there may be more so I apologise
for that now.

So now off to see if this works, and learn how to do do screenshots haha!

Special Thanks: All those keeping an - impatient ;) - eye on this models development over at lucasforums.

Concept: The stormtroopers designated as scouts wear lightweight armor that is considerably more flexible than the standard uniform.
Much like their infantry counterparts, scout troopers wear a black body glove covered with white armor.
Scouts often work in conjunction with light reconnaissance vehicles, such as Imperial speeder bikes.
For this reason, they are often referred to as biker scouts.


==================================================
NOTES:

The biker_scout_pistol.pk3 replaces the regular blaster pistol. To restore the regular blaster pistol,
simply remove the biker_scout_pistol.pk3 from your JKA/gamedata/base/ directory.

Templates for reskinning the player model and the pistol have been included in the zip file, but may be deleted
if you don't need them.



==================================================
DISTRIBUTION NOTES:

This model is freely distributable, and you can feel free to reskin it and use it in your maps without permission from me.
HOWEVER - We (Monsoontide, Keshire & Duncan 10158) MUST be credited with the original model.
This readme_biker_scout.txt file MUST be included.
