Everyone remember Monsoontide's Biker Scout model? Great model for sure -- it was definitely a needed addition to the game. However apparently not everyone thought it was perfect, such as this author. Details, details, details. They're what make a good mod a great one. Or in this case they make a great mod a perfect one. Maybe. I don't know enough about the scout trooper to be able to say whether these minor tweaks are indeed more accurate than the original, however I highly doubt the author would have gone to such trouble to do what some may believe to be 'trivial' tweaking if it wasn't.

Is this kind of tweaking really trivial? No, not at all. There will always be those among us who want perfection, or at least want as close to perfection as is possible, and those that reach for utter perfection deserve to be patted on the back. Whether or not this skin is a perfect representation of the scout trooper or not, I think it looks better, and by no means am I saying Monsoontide's original was poorly made. It was a wonderful model with a wonderful skin, however this particular reskin takes that wonderful base skin and adds on to it, using the best bits of Monsoontide's work and giving it a little more depth and a bit more realness.

Team skins are, of course, included, as are all the extras that were included with the original scout trooper model. An overwrite is also available, for MovieBattles, I gather, although the read-me is basically just a copy of Monsoontide's original, and thus gives very little pertinent information.

Not satisfied with his improvement, Tyrael once again comes to us delivering a V2 of his already great skin. This time he says he has done this to tweak it to look as much as the movie version as he could. He also claims to own and wore the actual armor so he tried to bring the feeling of authenticity to this model as he possibly could.

Now I will say it is a definite improvement. The skin itself looks more lifelike than the past skin and also the textures look really good. Overall it's brighter but also more pleasing to the eye. He added some of the elements of the gear that were missing in the original skin which you can appreciate a whole lot better in the screenshots he submitted. All the bot and npc stuff are here too. The only difference in the team skins is a little red and blue insignia that goes on the shoulder pads. Also the sounds are new so you can appreciate the authenticity much better.

Download this if you want the definite Biker Scout skin! :D

Description		: This skin, as many may or may not know, is what I consider to be an improvement of my previous Biker Scout skin, which is itself an improvement of the base Biker Scout skin done by Monsoontide. As a registered member of the Fighting 501st Legion, and having owned and worn the actual Biker Scout armor several times, I know about how it all fits together and all of its details, and decided to bring as much of that as I could to Jedi Academy. There are still a few imperfections, but they're all restricted by the model, and I believe I've made the Biker Scout model as movie-accurate as it can possibly be without a full-scale remodeling. Movie-accurate sounds were also extracted and used (thanks, Shao!) and were used to further enhance the skin's authenticity.

KNOWN BUGS              : None.

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.
