View Full Version : Plo Koon, the robes dilemma pool

06-28-2002, 09:21 AM
Instead of swarming the Plo Koon model thread with robes no robes bickering. Let's post our preferences in this poll. So what would you prefer? Plo Koon with Robes Geonosis Arena Style? Or without Robes Jedi Power Battles style? The "I want both" is not an option now, that will be up to the modeller to decide eventualy,

He had a robe in JPB.

whatever. it's too late now :) But you are right. But if there is a moderator that can remove the two parenthesis in the poll... What a mess! I even misspelled the title...

i still think both should be made (not mad just saying) i know its more work, but i think the aftereffect will be worth it...also someone said it would be cool if the whole jedi council was made...nice thought...but jeesh..thats alot of jedis......like over 15...might as well be a mod about the jedi council heh...which wouldn't be bad ;)

but if i ahd to vote...i think Plo Koon looks best in robed atire...gives him a more mysterious look...as stated before...he doesn't talk but uses telepathy...so since he doesn't really talk it maks him kinda mysterious...and the robed looked looking even more mysterious...well...at least hooded anyway =O\ lol

I think plo koon should not have his robes on. Now realy think about it would you rather walk up to someone in a robe that slowed you down or would you rather move realy fast do flips and that stuff. just my thoughts.

Keep the poll alive. 33 votes in one day, not bad but we can do better! Visit the Plo Koon model thread if you haven't done so yet, and take a look at one of the finest model that will hit JO soon!

Put me down for unrobed! :D

06-29-2002, 02:01 PM
I'm going for Plo Koon JPB style.

06-29-2002, 02:09 PM
Can we get a image of plo koon unrobed in Jedi Power Battles, I've never played the game and would like to know what he looks like that way b/c i voted unrobed.

06-29-2002, 09:03 PM
Well, it looks like the votes are getting closer to each other. How long are we going to let people vot before the modeler does one or the other?

I have a idea. Make a unrobed version of plo koon then release it then after make a robed version then release. In this case we'll get plo koon quicker and everyone will be happy :D

The poll will be officially over at 12:00 midnight pacific time. So make your votes or forever hold youre piece. I for one promote unrobed for a couple of reasons. One, it will probably animate alot better with less issues, and secondly because the creator is the most amazing cloth modeler I've ever seen. And while his robes I'm sure would look unbelievably cool, The tunic and pants would look even cooler with all the wrinkles and folds that he does. Trust me, vote unrobed!!!

I don't know if this is allowed, but I would like to change my vote to unrobed, I didn't see the unrobed picture when I voted :-(.

cumon ddues, vote no robes, if he wers robes, the engine want cope properly and his robe will b one huge texture that moves all in 1, no robes, will be greater, fink, just like the mace windu model, no robes, looks alot better 2 me....

If it's done well, it doesn't have to look bad at all. Plo Koon's robes don't puff out much at all on his upper torso, so that part can be modelled directly on the torso. The lower robes should work well if they're done right, and I have faith that they will be :) Vote Robes in '02!

06-30-2002, 09:03 AM
Hmm, the two choices really don't look that different at all. I would say the modeler should just choose which one he/she feels they could do better based on their ability and the number of remaining polys. If the robe will end up looking blocky and simple due to poly restraints, then I'd like unrobed. But if this guy is as good as you say he is, then I think it would be awsome if he could do some great looking robes. You must admit, plo koon fighting in well-made robes would look much cooler.

I find the robed version to be too plain I think it makes him look like he is wearing a night gown. Unless you would want it to be like "Wow look how strong Plo Koon is he is your ass in his sleep!"

Huh? lol

Robed, Robed, Robed!!
I like the movies.
Kinja, If you want him to show off his clothing ability, convince him to make the robe as a removable model segment, showing us both materials. ;)
I wouldn't be asking for the extra work, if he hadn't given us the power to vote. :p
Since he has, I'll be a demanding prick. Give me two models in one!

BTW I voted for Robes

Robes in 2002!!

Hugh Hefner wears Robes. So does Yoda.
Plo Koon wears a robe.
I wear a robe.
Wouldn't you like to wear a robe?


P.S. This is by far my worst post ever.
