Thanx to ChangKhan[Raven], I got the model viewer working, so I got my first proper JK2 skin done tonight. It's just a quick skin, I've got more planned, but they will need to wait for the tools.

anyway, heres the link. It's 1.3MB.

the skin has full CTF colours and bot support. The bot behaves a lot like lando (avoids sabers), but with its own chat lines.

I've also posted this thread in the Valley of the Jedi forum, here (http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=37916)

Excellent skin, but not really the best character to base a model off. I'm sorry, but Thrawn just looks weird running around with a Flechette or Lightsaber. Ah well, I understand your predicament, at least until more editing tools are released.

Admiral Pellaeon, did you add my red eyes? I love Grand Admiral Thrawn. Im gonna wait until that SDK pack is released and the moders can create perfect mods. Did I say I love your mod and Grand Admiral Thrawn?

I've updated the belt thing, and made some modifications to the CTF skins, nothing really noticable. The updated version is available from the same link as before:

I've never been any good at taking screenshots, and until i work out how to take screens in JKII, I won't be :)
This is a shot from the model viewer, just so you can see what the skin looks like a bit better.

Thrawn is one of the most popular EU characters, and one of my favourites, and while he may not look right running around with a lightsaber, I still had to make him :)
As I said above, the bot normally won't use lightsabers, but the game I took the shot in was a lightsaber only game.

Looks great!

To take a screenshot :

start a server with cheats on:

cg_thirdpersonangle 180 (i think, it might be another angle, just experiment with it)
cg_thirdpersonrange 50 (experiment as well)
cg_drawgun 0
cg_draw2D 0

then take your screenshot :)

Have fun !

yeah, im aware of that much from ef. What I don't know is the screenshot key (other than print screen).

I think you can load the console by using shift + ~, otherwise edit your config file and do a search for screenshot. If it isn't in the list, just add a line : bind x screenshot. Press that key to take a screenshot and you're done :)

ah ok. Knew about the console but I know nothing about binding. Off to take some shots :)

Prophet

I plan on doing Mace Windu next (Samuel L Jackson in multiplayer? hell yeah! :) ), but that will probably require mesh editing. I've started building the head, but I can't release that until the tools are out.

I REALLY dislike Thrawn, but that is one great skin, and will probably get use by me :)

Actually, I don't understand how you possibly can take credit for this skin. I mean, its dead obvious its a cut & paste job of Chiss, and a simple white jacket on it.

Prophet
04-02-2002, 01:03 PM
actually, its not a cut and paste. It uses the Chiss head textures directly from the original assets.pk3, and the uniform originates from the imperial soldier. This is stated in the readme. Nevertheless, there's a good 4 hours work in that skin on my part. Most my skins for other games take me several days, but as I stated above this was just a quick skin until the tools come out. I didn't edit the head because there was no need to, as Thrawn is an EU character and does not have a definative appearance.
Besides, this skin is not any less my work than the other skins that are available now, which are also modified raven bots.

You're so bada** felony... let's see something you put your time into that benefited this community.

Oh, that's right, you ain't done sh!%.

Prophet, good job. The more skins the merrier.

Cut the arguing over the skin guys. Just enjoy the fact that prophet has taken the time to put it together for us. Nice work man.
