I'm not going to repeat what Inyri said as justification for the large size of this weapon when questioned about it while it were still a work-in-progress. What I will say, is that the eagle-eyed among you will recognise the T-21 as the weapon carried by the Stormtroopers through Mos Eisley. It was allegedly also used in the later phases of the Clone Wars and during the New Republic era, too. I think it's also the gun used by the Galactic Empire's Repeater Troopers in Galactic Battlegrounds (albeit lacking the tripod), although it's hard to tell from a sprite.
By all accounts, the design itself is rather basic, as are most of the original trilogy designs. As such, the model isn't particularly awe-inspiring in the visuals, but it's a gun. A Glock 17 ain't pretty either, but it gets the job done. First person view strongly reminds me of the rifles from Call of Duty, whether that's intentional or not it's a very neat "cameo" of sorts nevertheless. It's also likely because the T-21's design was based off the Lewis machine gun, which was used heavily during World War I - and yes, I *did* already know that before Inyri threw the Wookieepedia link for the T-21's article at me. Those links hurt. Ouch.
I can't see any glaringly obvious flaws with the model, it looks polygonal but what doesn't in this game? Not sure why Inyri chose to overwrite the Concussion Rifle with this, the T-21 doesn't behave very much like the Stouker, with the T-21 being a fast-firing blaster and the Stouker being a slow-firing portable siege cannon. But you'll be glad to know that the rifle comes with matching icons and strings, which identify it properly on the menus.
You know you're probably going to download this. There's something about shooting people with big guns y'all just can't ignore. Violent, brutish... destructive... savages.... *downloads*
Ah, darn it. -_-'
======================================== A JEDI KNIGHT: JEDI ACADEMY MODIFICATION ======================================== TITLE: T-21 Light Repeating Blaster AUTHOR: Inyri Forge E-MAIL: inyriforge[AT]gmail[DOT]com WEBSITE: http://inyri.flowinternet.net CREDITS: <3 to the members of my own forums who gave feedback during the creation of this weapon. INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS: Dump this is your gamedata/base directory within your Jedi Academy directory. DESCRIPTION: This is the T-21 light repeating blaster, also known as the T-21 rifle in Star Wars Galaxies (no worries, I didn't base it off of that). It was a large and very powerful blaster used by Stormtroopers. This particular gun replaces the concussion rifle, because based on its description that seemed to be the most realistic replacement. It includes new icons as well as new strings. BUGS: None that I know of. COMMENTS: I think this gun turned out pretty well. I hope you guys all agree too!
