The Weequay model isn't a popular one for reskins, so it's nice to see one submitted. This one happens to be a Jedi, according to the author, however, this is a bounty hunter type of Jedi Weequay. That seems a bit contradictory, but I'll just go with it. The readme gives a bit of background on this character. He apparently ran into some rogue Force users and he also learned to use the Force. His glowing purple eyes are supposed to represent his power in the Force. The author describes him as a powerful and ruthless Jedi. The red and blue team skins are just that - red and blue. Even his glowing eyes match his team colors.
This is a decent skin, with the textures plucked from a couple of different models. The sounds are your basic Weequay sounds. The author claims that the bots make for good sparring partners, and that the bot support is pretty decent. I didn't test that personally, so I'll take the author's word on that. :) He also says that this is his second version, but I didn't find the first version on our site at all.
Bot Support: Yes Team Colors: Yes New Sounds: No
*************************** JEDI Academy MODIFICATION *************************** Title : Weequay Jedi 1.5 Author : Salinthel E-Mail : [email protected] File Name : wqjedi.pk3 File Size : 1.52MB Date Released : 12/12/2003 =========================================================== Credits =========================================================== I'd like to thank LucasArts and George Lucas himself first and foremost, since they are the ones who developed the Star Wars universe into the entity it is today. I'd also like to acknowledge everyone in the Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy section of GamingForums.com for giving me the help I needed to get off the ground and find the neccessary software to create all of my projects (even if some don't exactly turn out as planned...). =========================================================== General Info =========================================================== This is the second edition of my first skin by the same name. This time around, both bot support, and the ability to play it in Single Player mode have been added. There have been no new sounds added, but the bots have several new phrases when one or the other of you is killed. The bots are also quite aggressive and quick, and are equipped with a double-bladed lightsaber. If any of you know how to actually make new model.glm files, or edit existing ones (including adding bones and animations to them), please, PLEASE drop me an e-mail. There are several projects that I could be doing if I were able to edit some of the glm files that I have without loosing the bone structure and animations. This weequay roamed the galaxy for years collecting bounties for whoever paid the most credits. He had been hired by a crimelord to track down and kill the jedi Corran Horn when he came across a band of rouge Force users. They taught him their beliefs of the Force and showed him how to surrender himself fully to the Force while still controlling it, and he developed his glowing eyes, a physical representation of his power in the Force. Now he seeks out challenges worthy of one as powerful and ruthless as himself, not for the money, but for the sheer thrill of a good battle. =========================================================== Weequay Jedi (wqjedi) =========================================================== Model: "Weequay," by LucasArts. Skin: I took images from about 5 different models, mainly the weequay and jedi_ master models and retextured them to all fit... fairly nicely together. Sounds: Just the default weequay sounds, but look for more in later versions of my skins. Bot: Yes Teams: Yes =========================================================== Installation: Dump the wqjedi.pk3 into your Jedi Academy\Gamedata\base directory wherever you may have put it and that should do the trick. Uninstallation: Simply delete the wqjedi.pk3 from the Jedi Academy\Gamedata\base directory and problem solved... though if there actually are any problems, please contact me. =========================================================== If for some odd reason you actually want to use some of MY stuff for anything else, all you need to do is send me an email asking permission and 9/10 times, I'll grant it... I just want to know if my stuff's actually even being used. (Also, don't forget to ALWAYS give credit to others who did work so you didn't have to... it's just common courtesy.) =========================================================== * Copyright / Permissions * THIS SKINS ARE NOT MADE, DISTRIBUTED, OR SUPPORTED BY LUCASARTS ENTERTAINMENT COMPANY.
