File Description

Team skins for Warbeast's Meryl model, and several original skins by yours truly. The textures for the new dresses were created initially with Ryan Geiss' visualization for Winamp, Milkdrop, then reworked in photoshop to make them look more like... actual dresses.

There is also a nifty "mix and match" guide (merylmixandmatch.txt, included in this zip) for creating your own variations on Meryl. No Unreal Editor use or knowledge required, just how to use notepad. :)

A nice little model that has the ever so handy (lol Gothic) TEAM COLORS. I liked the original Meryl model and the Meryl_74, and this takes the cake. Whats better than blowing the hell out of a girl in a skirt?

Jefe's Meryl UT2004 update / skin pack

What you're getting, and some notes:



Team skins for Warbeast's Meryl model, and several original skins by yours truly. The textures for the new dresses were created initially with Ryan Geiss' visualization for Winamp, Milkdrop, then reworked in photoshop to make them look more like... actual dresses. 

There is also a nifty "mix and match" guide (merylmixandmatch.txt, included in this zip) for creating your own variations on Meryl. No Unreal Editor use or knowledge required, just how to use notepad. :)

The animation file (Meryl.ukx) didn't need to be updated since the default human female animations are used for this model, and thus, Meryl has vehicle animations. She does have some trouble holding the new guns, but that's just a result of the way Epic updated things in UT2004, and is a common problem with custom models.  I didn't rework any of the animations, because, frankly, I haven't learned how.  Just in case you are wondering, the original textures are in the ukx file, and a new upl is included, (merylremix.upl) pointing to the new textures, so it isn't necessary to replace your current meryl.upl file. 

I cleaned up some spots on the original two skins in 0.3 update.  Main areas affected were some ugly seams on the back of both girl's heads, and some irregular black lines on the legs of Meryl_74. Doing this also forced me to go back and rework the team color variants.  This is partially why I made Meryl_74's blue hair slightly darker this time, but mainly because I had used a lightened version of Meryl's blue hair on her originally, but after a while, it didn't quite look right to me. 

There are also two nice screenshots suitable for wallpapers included.

Version History:



0.1 - beta.  (2004-08-12) Upls need tweaking for bot balance, bios etc.  Textures and player portraits done.  

0.2 - beta.   (2004-08-15) Updated the upls for bot strength balance.  All cost around 720 credits in SP. 

0.3 - beta.  (2004-08-19) Minor bug-fixing done to the both skins, but to Meryl_74 especially.  There still are some texturing artifacts  that show up on the both body skins at the "lowest" and "lower" detail, but above that they look fine.  (The artifacts look like runs in pantyhose due to the blending that occurs at low detail.) Also changed many of the texture file names, so make sure you update your upls.   Last but not least, wrote the "mix-and-match" guide, for those of you who'd like to make some custom bots with this pack. Still no bio.  :(

1.0 first release (2004-09-01) Some changes again to the readme, and upls.  Decided not to replace the original meryl.upl file, just in case there are any servers pushing her.  No changes to the textures.
