I've seen pics from blue, pale and green twi'leks, so why not a RGB system for the clothes and skin color, in this way if you choose human you also may play as a chiss (turning skin color to be blue) and those redish guys wich species I don't remember.
RGB for All!!! saber, skin and clothes.

This is from the magazine article...



There seems to be a few colour options, among other things. Whether that's skin colour or not...your guess is as good as mine... But I've seen different coloured Twi'Leks in some of those screenshots, so you can definitely change Twi'Lek skin colour.

they said there was over 2,000 plus veriations, so color probably fits in with it, and storm hammer, if that is the end version {which i hope not} of the menu, it looks like JO's menue

Yes, I know. I hope they decide to change it prior to release.

Does the menu really matter if all the functionality is there?

I don't think that will be a priority, somehow.

Nevertheless...if you took up skinning, maybe you could do a self-portrait on one of the model skins.

Also...isn't there some place on the Net where someone will make a skin for you with your own face, or something? You have to send them some photographs, and they send you back a skin. I'm sure I read about that somewhere, but I haven't got a link, sorry.

Prime...I know it's a small thing in the whole scheme of things, but I do think the look of the menu is important, along with the functionality. As you said in the other thread, it would be good if they went for a JK style...

As for custom models, how would skinning work? In the game, you can change the colours, etc. for certain parts. How you you make a custom skin that would be able to have the colours changed in game?

That's a very good question...and I think it's one that only the devs can answer.

Well, to answer the original question, in the PC Gamer issue there are a few screenshots of a black human Jedi swinging two sabers about, so yup, black humans will be in for sure, so odds are high that asians will be optionable too.

Darn...you're right. How on earth did I miss that one? I think this is the one you're talking about...



And that's all I'm posting from that article. AFAIK you're allowed to use 10% of something. If I get any complaints, I'll take it down.

I'd say this thread already has Leemu's warning and if I or another Mod Or Super Mod has to step in, we'll just close it, forward it to our little Admin section, and after a week, delete it so all posts made and points earned from posts are lost. and then go from there.

Ok then, Kit FIsto no longer exists, and neither does Aayla Secura. Because they are green and blue, which by default, are "weird colors". So thats why all colours must exist. Oh and don't forget our little friend Yoda, he is green, so does he not get a chance at existing because of his color.

Well, so far the announced species besides human are Twi'leks and Rodians, both of which can be found in a green shade, and the Twi'leks can be found in basically... every primary color. and then some.

Well look at Eeth Koth and Darth Maul, both are Zabrak, but Eeth Koth has the human tint of colour to him, where as Darth Maul has the black skin with the tattoos for his sith devotion.

Hey I didn't know that were tattoos! I though it was just *another* weird kind of alien species

Ah yes now I see it:

Quote:
A pained look of bewilderment crossed Maul's tattooed face as death overtook him. His body fell into the melting pit, splitting in two as it tumbled into oblivion.
From the databank

About skincolor: wouldn't it be weird if you could choose all colors for all races?? Imagine a purl human, now that would be nice

But IF the Zabrak is going to be in there (I hope so,m although I keep thinking of the Zabrak as a real Sith race), they must have tattoos too!
