Well this mod basically replaces the dull combat suit with a new skin and model. It is designed to make the armor look like it could be used in combat.

What do you guys think of it?

EDIT: here's a pic of it with a head on.

Looks much more military-esque - I like it, personally. And I too hated the basic combat suit - 'twas pathetic :xp: A great looking replacement Canderis.

Does anyone know the model name for the normal CB suit? I plan on replacing this the simple way.

Yeah; It's the same model as the other light armor. (PMBCM/PFBCM) A simpler way would be to change the uti's baseitem.

Nice Canderis! But dont you think there should be a option of more "real" camo?

Wow, very nice.

Are both versions going to be in v2?

Canderis
04-06-2009, 08:54 PM
I will include them both but I won't leave the one in the first v2 pic (i assume that is the one you meant) as a default in the patcher. I will also add more utc's with desert camo and urban camo too.

I tried and failed to make the other camos so for now the 2.0 release will only contain the combat suit.

If anyone is so desperate for the texture for this, PM me and I will send you the completed texture. It will not have a new icon, it will use the one from the last release.

I actually prefer the lighter grey harness & shoulders (fisrt pic) more than the black (third pic). The extra brown camo around the ribcage (third) is really good tho. Its a tough decision, since all three look good, but for different reasons. I think that the grey harness provides some separation between clothing elements so they're easier to distinguish, but the black provides more camoflage and pattern breakup. The first one looks more stylish, the third more practical.

Just my two cents :)

I do to. I was trying to re-create that in the new texture as the original looked much lighter in game.

Update: I've been focusing in detailing. Not too much different, but a few things have been fixed.


EDIT: I updated the texture again, much more camo, it looks really real I think.

the camo is really looking good now. The pattern really hides the shape of the person, but I bet if I see it up close in the game, there is still plenty of detail.

It reminds me of the G.I.Joe figure named Hit & Run (http://www.yojoe.com/action/88/hitnrun.shtml).

Canderis
04-18-2009, 01:33 AM
Yep, there is a lot of detail, when it is available, take a look at the texture. There is camo on the pants if ya look closely.

UPDATE: Ive been working on a v3, merging my favorite things in v1 and v2, and changing a few things around. I removed the camo on the pants and the arms and I also brought back the metal torso.

Any possibility of an urban camo version? Btw, this looks amazing, it really does. The only reason I suggest urban camo is (and its been quite some time since I ran through TSL) because about 1/3 of the game is in a jungle or green environment (such as Dxun, Telos, and the not so lush Dant) and about 2/3 take place is a more urban/technological environment (Ravager, Onderon, Citadel Station, Peragus, etc.). Having two versions as unique items would be fun though, and add a little to the RP element.

Again though, fantastic work and even if you didn't change a thing, its excellent and well worth a spot in the override.

No modeling job involved my friend, just skinning.

Oh. I guess I misinterpreted this:

A nice reskin, then. :p

I had a couple of bugs with this mod that I'd like to share so I can figure out if it's the mod or just other mods conflicting:

1) There is no female model for this armor. It results in females having no clothes but covered in the skin of the armor.

2) There are multiple armors that use the same model as this one. In addition to 1), other armors will use the model but the skin will not fit.

My suggestion for 2 (provided it's not just my error) is that you, Canderis, create a replacement mod for all of the armors in this game that share the same model as the combat suit. It'd be epic. :D

That would be with v1, download the fix I released for it.

That was kinda the plan at first but it is really hard to make a good looking texture and there is a lot of those armors.

Nope, no re-used modeling. I just used an unused armor model.

It is fully compatible, I use both.

I decided to revisit this mod with what I know now.

Me being nit-picky, I added dirt, and grass stains to it. Still may do more to it.

Anybody else thinking HEV suit as it was supposed to be done? I just realized that, despite having used this mod for a while now.

Sometimes it pays to be nit-picky, since these suits just keep getting better. I still like all of them, as they could be multiple versions for an army unit's uniforms.
