I'm going to start out by saying a Trandoshan would never be seen in the Imperial Navy. But luckily believability isn't what I have to review. Just the skin. I like it. I'd seen images of it during process, but seeing it up close is much better.
As you might've guessed, this is Lazerbeak's interpretation of a Trandoshan in an Imperial Navy uniform. The gold accenting, while perhaps not accurate to Imperial dress code, looks very nice. A lot of this, of course, was snatched from the Imperial model and pasted onto the Trandoshan skinmap. However from personal experience I can say that's not always as easy as it looks. In any case, the darkened greyish skin, the gold chain around the neck, and the Imperial rank. I couldn't actually figure out what rank that was, but after looking at a bunch I've decided it must be the equivalent of God, or something equally up there. Possibly a little unbelievable... :p
I must say that the team colors look nice as well. The colors are darker and don't hurt the eyes when you look at them. It has bot and npc support, but there's a little problem with the bot support. You see, he edited bots.txt. This will cause all the Raven bots not to appear. However all your custom bots *will*. If you don't mind that, download. If you do mind, download it anyway and just delete bots.txt :p.
Bot Support: Yes Team Support: Yes New Sounds: No NPC Support: Yes
*************** Jedi Knight 3: Jedi Academy Modification *************** Title: Trandoshan Officer Author: Lazerbeak E-Mail: firstname.lastname@example.org File name: trandofficer.pk3 File size: 1.48 MB Released: 13 Aug, 2005 Description ----------- This is basically just a Trandoshan wearing an Imperial officer's uniform. Not much else to say. I made it while screwing around in Photoshop one night, putting some of Raven's textures on the model, as well as a few extra details. And since a few people seemed to really like it, I decided that I should release it. This is by no means my first skin, but it is my first released skin. I tried to make it as complete as possible with team skins, sounds, NPC/bot support, shaders, etc, so it'd be worth your download, and so it wouldn't feel like some hack job. :) It has icons, but if you wanna get it via console, type: /model trandofficer. For the NPC, activate cheats and type: /npc spawn trandofficer. Installation ------------ Unzip it, grab the pk3, and put it in your base folder (C:\Program Files\LucasArts\Star Wars Jedi Knight Jedi Academy\GameData\base). To uninstall, delete the pk3. Simple as that. Bugs ---- None that I could find. However, there is an eye-glow shader that won't work for some reason. Misc. Comments -------------- This is the first time I gave a skin NPC support, so it's nothing special. I may release a v2 with an improved, more challenging NPC some time in the future. Credits ------- I'd like to give thanks to the folks at FileFront Forums, for giving me the inspiration to start modding, as well as offering their knowledge when I needed it. I suppose I should also thank Raven for the Imperial textures I used. :P Legal Malarkey -------------- THIS MODIFICATION IS NOT MADE, DISTRIBUTED, OR SUPPORTED BY ACTIVISION, RAVEN, OR LUCASARTS ENTERTAINMENT COMPANY LLC.
