miro42 brings us a new mod, remodelling and retexturing Juhani to be more feline in appearance. As you may have noticed, the Cathar race, which Juhani belongs to, is based on the cat, and in other media, like the Dark Horse comic series Tales of the Jedi (no pun intended, I'm sure :p ), the Cathar appear much more cat-like than Juhani does. This mod alters Juhani's appearance to be more in line with those other appearances of Cathar in Star Wars media. The first and third screenshots are 'before' pictures, the second and fourth 'after' pictures.
The author gets serious credit for remodelling the head, particularly on the nose, which looks brilliant. The eyes, too have been edited well, and are now far more suitable to the character. Clearly a lot of time, effort and planning has been spent working on this mod, all of which have aided the author's natural talent in creating something of a very high quality. Overall the mod achieves easily what it sets out to do. For a first mod, this really is a treat! While the mod is excellent, however, the ears seem to stick out a little too much in the edited version, and are perhaps a little too round. Nevertheless, these are small complaints about an otherwise very strong and well-crafted mod. Definitely worth downloading, and great work by the author, from whom this reviewer hopes to see more!
N.B.: Please leave constructive criticism, particularly if you download and use this mod, as the download-counter isn't very informative.
====================================== Knights of the Old Republic Juhani MOD ====================================== author: miro42 email: firstname.lastname@example.org website: miro42.deviantart.com name: Cathar Juhani credits (thanks): Trex for his awesome tutorial and everyone at Holowan Labs. Because there are too many to name, thanks for all the great tools out there! For an actual list of programs and tools that I used, check out the little tutorial. Of course, thanks go to Bioware and LucasArts for bringing KOTOR to life. filename: juhaniCathar_head.zip file size: 183KB (435kb unzipped) date released: 18 Feb 2009 description: For those of you who remember Star Wars pre-prequel, you might remember the old Dark Horse comics series 'Tales of the Jedi'. From this series one of my favorite characters was Sylvar, the Cathar. So when I found out that KOTOR had a Cathar I was psyched. Of course then I actually saw Juhani and I was quite dissapointed to find that she looked nothing like a Cathar should. She didn't even have any hair! This mod gives Juhani an actual cat like appearance (based more off of the 'Redemption' arc than the older ones) with a different nose, bigger ears, and a squatter, but (in my opinion) cuter face. I've also retextured her head so it looks a little bit nicer. installation: Extract contents of the zip file. Place the .mdl, .mdx, and .tga files into override (x:Program FilesLucasArtsSWKOTOR by default). Start KOTOR! How easy is that?! uninstallation (is that a word?): delete the .mdl, .mdx, and .tga files from the override. notes: This is my first ever mod and I would like to think that there are no problems with it. However, computers are computers and I'm sure someone will have a problem. If this is the case please email me and I'll look into figuring out the problem. However, since this is my first mod I don't really know what else I can do as my skills are all but nill. So, try redownloading and reinstalling and see if that works. Good luck, and have fun! permissions: If you wish to use this for anything but personal use, send me an email and I'm sure I'll give you permission to use it however you like.
