Well then, the moment a lot of you have been waiting for is here: Spanki has released his Sith Customization Pack for the public to foam at the mouth and claw at with bandwidth =_,=
Well then, let us get started. FIrst off, I shall give out the basic stats that Spanki provided for us in the readme. Not including the bonus skins of famous SW characters he provided, the customization offers:
- 27 customization screens - 96 customizable heads ( + 11 unique heads of RPG chars ) - 288 customizable torsos ( + 11 unique torsos of RPG chars ) - 20 customizable boots - red and blue glowing lights variations - 552.960 possibilities at all
These factors are no doubt earth-shatteringly astounding to the publics eyes, no less. This, however, presents a problem to those who enjoy the JCP: 32 customization screens is the limit on JA, and as such, you're left to either fend for yourself in hunting for the right outfit, or you'll have to dump one. Sort of disappointing, actually, because I felt like this could have been prevented.
The reason I say this is because most of the focus on this pack was mostly in the TORSOS, as opposed to the heads. There are only actually 3 "sets" of heads to work with, so to speak. Whilst you were given slightly limited clothing options with 6 sets of heads in the JCP, now you have 3 sets with MASSIVE clothing options. Honestly, *I* personally didn't like the trade off, as it resulted in the above problem, and the head selection was a little out there for my tastes.
Granted, the above paragraph IN NO WAY states that this skin pack is bad. Suffice to say, it's magnificent to behold and use. However, I'm not the kind of guy who likes his Sith to be dressed in enough aesthetics to mask his entire ethnicity half the time and be mistaken for a gluttonous merchant. Whilst this is not the case in this pack, I did notice that there weren't exactly a lot of normal, human faces. The first set of faces is dark, brooding, and unnatural looking, as a typical Sith would look like. The second set features mostly alien races. The third set is a mixture of some human and alien races. Most of the human faces in this section aren't very diverse, however. They tend to sport similar features, and as I mentioned before, there's no average looking face. Not every Dark force user bathes in pure Darkside in the morning o_O.
Gripes aside, we move onto the massive department store of outfits. My word, looks like black and brooding is in this season, eh? =_o A lot of the clothing options here were pretty dark, but a lot of them sported SOME form of alternating color, so as not to make every outfit the same. Armor variations and what have you were also included in this pack, so you can go into combat well-armed. Featured exclusively in this customization to stand out from the JCP would be the ability to have a "hood only" customization option, so as to mask your visage without having the heavy robe to carry about.
Diverting away from the customization section, we can see in our menu that we have 11 delicious characters to select now. They are:
Exar Khun Darth Bane Darth Krayt A´shared Hett Darth Kruhl Ulic Qel Droma Kyp Durron Cade Skywalker Aviar Jagged Fel Nomi Sunrider ( I wanted to include something for the ladies :P )
Apparently one female skin was enough to say he was throwing the ladies a bone XD ⌐_⌐....
Moving on, it is safe to say that all of these skins are amazingly awesome to behold. They're finely crafted, although a lot of them don't seem to sport hooded versions. Ah well.
Sounds. The majority of the sounds in this pack were composed of altered Kyle and Jaden(both genders if I'm not mistaken,) soundbits. Some taunts sounded out of place for some of the RPG characters presented, and I wasn't too thrilled when the customizations were stuck with a monstrous form of dark side Jaden's overacted lines, but overall, they were still a pretty well chosen set of sounds.
So =_= here it is. Now you must decide for yourself whether to remain on your so called path of light or embrace the power of emotion, and unleash the true fury of humanoid-kind. Those willing for the latter(or both O_o) are more than encouraged to submit bandwidth to this powerful pack of skins. Me? Eh, might keep it, might not. Either way, it still stomps colons.

*************************** JEDI ACADEMY MODIFICATION *************************** Title: Spanki's_SITH_Customization Authors : Spanki E-Mail : email@example.com Website: ----- File Name : Spanki's_SITH_Customization File Size: 99,5 MB Date Released : 09.07.2008 New Models: no New Sounds: yes Team Colours: no New Shaders: yes Bot Support: yes New Textures: yes New Icons: yes NPC Support: no Model - HapSlash Textures - Spanki Mesh Optimization, Weighting & Conversion,- Infinity Blade Credits: HapSlash (for the awesome model & hs_dooku) E-Mail : firstname.lastname@example.org Scerendo ( for a torso texture of Zander Cohort ) E-Mail : email@example.com Sith Lord (for a really well made face texture of a beautiful hs_anakin reskin called Kale_Degan) Tyrael ( for the kelifarian and the lizard face textures ) Glu Bundy ( for a face texture I modified ) Description: This is a Sith Customization based on the HS_anakin model of Hapslash. How the title of this mod is saying . . . surprise, surprise . . . this Modification deals with a customization of Sith. After I finished the JEDI_Customization_PLUS . . . I know that I wrote Costumization :P . . . I decided to do the sith customization, coz all the Jedi need Sith to fight. You will find 27 new customization screens after having this modification installed, so its impossible to have both, Jedi and Sith Customization installed at the same time with having all its possibilities ( I noticed that the limitation of customization screens is 32 when I had the mod already done ). So you gotta decide, what you prefer. In the first time I made this modification for Sith based clans around the world but decided later to include some RPG chars coming along with it. These RPG chars are the main difference between Jedi and Sith Customization, even to light side RPG chars are included here. These Chars all have unique robes that are not customizable and of course unique faces that are not customizable either. Another difference regarding to the Jedi customization is the fact that I worked with alot of glowing effects this time, you are able to costumize every torso with red and blue glowing lights. By the way, there are 2 unique robes at the end of every of the 9 different torso menus. The RPG charakter are all selectable at the MP icon screen ( 22 icons, 2 for each charakter ). Altough I decided neither to do NPC nor Bot support with this Mod. It seems many people cant handle that big amount of NPCs , or they arent aware of how to delete them. Therefore is coming a NPC list for spawning within this zip file and an NPC folder, just copy the NPC you want to add and paste it in "ext_data / npcs" folder of the mod. . . . the only Bot you can choose to fight is my beloved Exar Khun . . . Maybe some people remember the Jedi_Customization_Plus, there were just Humans, Chiss , a Rodian and some Cyborg species included. This time I decided to do more species variants . . . of course the main Heads still have a human topic but there is a Kelifarian, a Rodian, some Cyborgs, a Lizard like dude, a Frog guy ;D , a big selection of different Heads form the Ratatakki species ( Ratatakki is the species of Asajj Ventraa, and they look very sithish in my eyes ) and finally some heads that are so bizarr that you cant say what species they are . . . But the facts now: ------------------ - 27 customization screens - 96 customizable heads ( + 11 unique heads of RPG chars ) - 288 customizable torsos ( + 11 unique torsos of RPG chars ) - 20 customizable boots - red and blue glowing lights variations - 552.960 possibilities at all - 11 RPG chars Exar Khun Darth Bane Darth Krayt A´shared Hett Darth Kruhl Ulic Qel Droma Kyp Durron Cade Skywalker Aviar Jagged Fel Nomi Sunrider ( I wanted to include something for the ladies :P ) Bugs: no known Comments: spank ! ^^ Special thank's go out to HapSlash and his modding fellows ( Infinity Blade, Overlord .. etc. ), without this Modification would not exist. Thanks to all of the "Voidians" that gave me positive or negative critics and suggestions along the process of this mod Special thanks to Buffy "you really know how to make nice screenshots honey" Special thanks to Scerendo "your modview based photoshop artworks pwn" Special thanks to Grevious for making a trailer of this Modification Again thanks to Buffy for making the NPC files . . . following a quote : regarding the costumization screens . . . Now.. I haven't really heard any issues aside from these, so if there is something.. speak up. Also note, that if for some reason the back of Anakin's head is missing on the Species menu when you customize Anakin... Realize that there are Normal Heads... and Hood Versions. If you choose a "Hood Head" but don't take a "Hooded Torso"... you will have a gaping hole in the back of your head. You should also be sure to take "Normal Head" if you are taking a torso without the robes on or hood up. If you still have problems with the missing/clipping hair and Hoods.... and you can't figure out why it's happening on Customized Anakins through the species menu... It's ok... it's not a bug... you are simply incompetent. Infinity Blade Beware of grammer & word mistakes . . . and finally enjoy this modification ------------------ * How to install * ------------------ Just extract the .pk3 into the GameData/base in your game directory, and it is selectable among the usual Multiplayer and Singleplayer MODS. make sure you have JEDI_Costumization_PLUS deleted to have all SITH_Customization menus ================================================== --------------------------- * Copyright / Permissions * --------------------------- Not to be used in any model pack, modification, total conversion or the like, without express permission of me, Spanki *I you have my personal permission* I give permission to use or modify all the textures as long as credit is clearly and explicitly given to me, Spanki, and the model's original authors.
