When Knights of the Old Republic was announced and a trailer for it was released as an upcoming game five years ago (has it been that long already), my first impressions of Darth Malak was he sort of reminded me of Darth Vader. Reason being because he was tall and he his voice sounded mechanical.
Well, what if Darth Malak looked a lot more like Darth Vader? Lord Spartan makes his FileFront debut with this skin job that makes Malak look a lot like Vader. Thanks to the textures provided by Cheshire, which were originally made for his Darth Vader model for Jedi Outcast nearly five years ago. All the author had to do is convert them to that the mapped out right on Malak. I was impressed right away when I saw the screenshots and knew that the author did a great job in matching the Vader textures on Malak’s body. He even remembered to use the jawless Malak texture which is great since lots of people (I’ve done it once myself) forget to do that when making a Malak skin.
I can tell a lot of people are going to enjoy this mod just by looking at the work. For those who like using Malak in TSL for any reason, you can drop these textures in the TSL override folder. They’ll work there as well. Enjoy the new skin! :D
Note: Please leave the author feedback, especially if you download this mod and use it. It really helps encourage the author to make more mods in the future.
====================================================== A KNIGHTS OF THE OLD REPUBLIC MODIFICATION ====================================================== AUTHOR: Lord Spartan EMAIL: Please don’t NAME: Darth Malak fan of Darth Vader CREDITS: Me for most of the work and Cheshire for the shield and gloves. FILENAME: N_Darth_Malak_Vader.rar FILE SIZE: 418 Ko (428 259 octets) DATE RELEASED: 01-21-2006 DESCRIPTION: It’s a reskin of Darth Malak to make him look more like Darth Vader. I made his eyes more evil and made a custom CM_Baremetal for a shiny look. INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS: Put all the content in the .rar file into your Kotor1 Override at the exception of the read-me and enjoy the modification. COMMENTS: It was a lot of hard work for me, I have poor talent when it comes to skinning and making mods in general. I didn’t have enough talen to make all the entire texture by myself so I used the torso shield and gloves from "cheshire_arco_vader.pk3" by Cheshire (see the arcovader read-me included). Ofcourse I still had to play a lot with them to make them fit with the rest. So, there was a lot of recolouring and resizing, plus a lot of patience to learn how to make my own patern of lined leather. BUGS: There’s none, unless my poor and limited abilities at skinning.
