Brace yourselves for our little Green friend is back in action with a new model to please all you fans out there. Oh and may I add, this is a good one.

Ive been following the progress of this model, and boy, I don't know how Toshi does it but he's not only a fast modeler, hes a decent one at that. This is his take on on the famous Jedi Master which as described in the readme was not intended for release, but we are now graced with the release of this model.

Now I will admit, its not perfect in places. There is a little clipping but its really only minor and to me it isn't a problem. Plus that's the JA skeleton being a pain. The detail on this model is spectacular, you can really see Yoda's facial detail come out in the texture work. His proportions are spot on as far as I can tell as well. I really don't have anything bad to say about this model, Its just, Yoda o.O. The accuracy is amazing. The only thing I would suggest is adding in different versions of Yoda maybe if there is a version 2 planned.

The author has included new sounds, team skins, bot support, and Yoda is also playable in SP. Toshi has also made a custom .glm to fit Yoda's fighting style better. Unfortunately it only works in SP though. Read more about this in the readme. To really put the cherry on top, Toshi has added Yoda's saber in here aswell also made by himself. This model definitely competes with those Yoda's already out there, and in my opinion is the best one out there.

This is a must have for your base folder, I demand bandwidth is submitted!

Description:
----------------------------------------------------------------------
NOTE: INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS AT THE END OF THIS DOCUMENT.

This is my take on Yoda, as depicted in Episode III. This model started off as a test bed to try out different ideas and learn more about how the _humanoid.gla works. I also wanted to see if I could fit a character with an odd structure to the JKA skeleton, in preparation for a new character I promised I would model. Initially Yoda was to remain unreleased, but since I got it to look decent I might aswell share it with all of you.

There are 2 different model.glm included in this pack:

One is for SP, and makes use of his own gla file. He will not overwrite the default stances, or any stance mod you may have installed. His fighting style is a mix of Blue, yellow, dual, and staff. I wanted him to move more like the movie Yoda, but I don't have time to make an entire saber style in dragon. The result is quite good, he is very fast and he spins around a lot. I did make him his own stance, though. I scaled the npc to 45 to make him look the size of the movie Yoda. I haven't found any good way to make him appear in cut scenes besides the player.npc thing, but that would mean that you would have to remove Yoda from your base in order to see other characters. That's unacceptable, so I left it out.

The MP version uses the default _humanoid.gla, since the default JKA doesn't like .gla's with a different name. He will be huge, unless scaled with a MP mod such as JA+ (even then he will still be too big). I didn't really want to include a MP version, he's unplayable as far as I'm concerned. But as I said, a lot of you guys use mods which can scale player models.

-Facial animations, ears included :)

-Unique fighting style using a mix of the default JKA animations (SP only)
