Would it be possible to cut the jawguard from Malak's model (whole jawguard, along with the parts that cover the ears) and make it avaiable for pc to wear? I mean DJ Made wearable Nihilus hood by cutting Nihilus' head and making it useable, so this would be similiar work I think. This could be done for both games, since Malak's model is still in TSL assets.

That's pretty feasible. It might just take a little tweaking to make it fit right on most heads. Or it might even work as-is if it was just taken right off Malak's head. I'll give it a look-see and see how it's shaped. Been a while since I looked at it.

For the record, DJ didn't cut Nihilus' head off and make it a seperate appearance, it already had its own entry in the head.2da but was unused. That being said, I don't see any reason why someone could model a very similar looking mouth plate like Malaks.

There's really no reason someone couldn't just cut it off of Malak's model, which is what I've already done now. No reason to make it all over again when it's already in the assets.

I'm tweaking the positioning, but it looks like it's going to fit perfectly on most of the male heads. Probably won't look too good on the female heads, but I'm not sure if you care about that, Don. I'll post some screenshots when I've got it positioned right.

Needs minor readjustment (it sits too low right now), but it seems to work fine. If you want any particular stats on it let me know. I think right now it's limited to dark side, and has defense against light side or something. I'll have to look.

Looks briliant so far, and yes I had mostly male heads in mind. Ill set stats on my own, just a question - would you be able to do TSL version aswell?

As long as Malak is in the assets (and he is), I see no reason why I couldn't make a TSL version as well.

Thats pretty cool.. When can we expect this, hopefully soon.. :)

I was wondering, if anything can be done for nihilus, I want a robe with a hood like his, and currently there is nothing like it...

Sure you can use the disguise, but he lacks a lot of animations, opening locks, etc..

Could this be carefully edited into a mask like dj did, minus his actual mask, just the hood, and the his body made into robe model, this way he would look right, but use the pc animations.. It should also keep the flowing cape look, since thats already part of the models animations. Right? I honestly know nothing of modeling.. So.. Im just asking...

It probably would be a challenge, but I honestly done see why it cant be done..

Well just thought I would ask, I really want a good sith style robe, and the best I can find at the moment is Redhawkes exile robes, I really like them, but I want something like palpatine wore, or maul, or nihilus..

If its not possible forget I asked, but I really want this, so if you dont mind a challenge try it, I mean worst case scenario, it dont work.. :)

Excellent! I will grab a copy as soon as finish typing this... :)

Just took a peek at it, it looks awesome good job man, Im gonna see how it looks on my character..

btw, so what of the nihilus idea.. Not happening?

Also, just a thought, if you ever wanted to integrate this into the game, as a placeable, you always say it was one of Revans trophies, put it on korriban, give it a little back story, after malaks defeat he ripped it from his head as proof of Malaks demise.. hehe.. :)

edit 2

Thats awesome, it looked cool on my character..

Gave me an idea too, what about merging avols sith hood with the sith mask, into a wearable head piece.. :)

Anyways, im gonna go give ya vote for this.. I like it..
