Well, I've finally finished these characters, and they're available at File Front (http://knightsoftheoldrepublic.filefront.com/file/Playable_Echani;85178x) .

Why do I have to be such a perfectionist? :fist: I had a few problems when I found out that some of the head models don't have goggle or mask hooks (so head gear is invisible when you equip them). I tried like mad with several different ways to fix it, but no luck. In the end, I decided to just release them as-is (maybe a solution will present itself in the future).

Other than that, my time was spent on getting the tattoos looking right, and fixing the mdl files' uvw maps so that the hair wasn't so piecemeal, but more flowing (especially the 3rd female). I also took some time to make the underwear textures a little more defined, and athletic, since the Echani are notorious for training. Hopefully you can see the differece in the female's abs. What's not obvious from the screen shots is that I've given them a little baremetal shine to their hair and eyes, since Echani are supposed to have silvery grey hair and silvery blue eyes. I tried to make the hair subtle, and the irises stand out.

As for the Echani Mercenaries on Manaan, they will now have the normal head of the 1st Male, and the back up head of the 2nd (with the beard). I also gave them Echani Light Armor instead of a smuggler's outfit. They're Mercenaries after all! :rifle1::fire2:

So, here are some screen shots:

Hopefully you will enjoy these playable characters. Please feel free to let me know what you think, and any suggestions that I could use for future PC mods. :)

nice work, not to be mean or anything, but there have already been a version of this released, at least an echani pc head

Edit: if i get your permission, i will use it in a new custom recruit mod, which will add an echani jedi character using one of the female heads in this pack

I think that there is a Mullet Man Echani already included in the Holowan Plug-in, and the only other I've seen is a Female with the really short, spiky hair. I tried to make mine so that they wouldn't duplicate those mods (the more Echani, the merrier ;))

Thanks for asking. I'll say "go for it", all I ask is that you credit me in your read-me file.

Thanks, I worked really hard on the tattoos, but most of the veiny areas were modified from other PC heads that came with the game. After all, I wanted my characters to be similar to those in the game.

You got it. Check out my signature area for my other released mods. I've also got a whole bunch of new ones I'm working on in the Work in Progress.
