!!! BUGS !!!

 

I have no idea why, but even after I have edit the shader file

few times and made tones of testing, the shadows of TIE fighter's wings is missing.

 

None other, that are familiar to me, if you find any, please comment.

 

Tested the model both for JKA Single Player & Multi Player, works good.

 

-- Somehow in Multi Player game play, when you load the TIE Fighter it doesn't show you

the transparant wing textures so much as in SP (but they are still transparant, just not so much as in SP

 

 

 

FEEL FREE TO MAKE ANY CHANGES ON THIS MODIFICATION TEXTURE OF TIE FIGHTER, BUT PLEASE CREDIT ME IN YOUR WORK.

 

 

THIS TEXTURE IS BASED ON THE FIRST 2 PROMO TRAILERS FROM THE NEW UPCOMING SAGA: "STAR WARS - THE FORCE AWAKENS (EPISODE 7)""

 

 

 

******************************READ THIS BEFORE PLAYING***************************************

 

Instructions:

 

In order to spawn the craft you need to acivate cheats heres how you do it.

 

Singleplayer- Load a level, I suggest the "Trip" level, once your in the game make sure you move your character to an area big enough to spawn the craft.

 

* Hit "shift and tild (~)" to activate the console.

* Next type "devmapall"...hit enter (cheats are now on)...

* Next type "npc spawn vehicle (vehicle's name)"

 

--> Example: npc spawn vehicle tie-fighter

 

______________________________________________________________________________________

This mod just changes the basic TIE-Fighter textures from JKA, to look more like

the new desing from the trailers of STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS (Episode 7)

______________________________________________________________________________________

 

 

WARNING!!!

 

– Close the console by hitting the tild (~) again.

 

– Now this is the most important part, move back to allow the ship to spawn, it may need alot of space.

Once the ship spawns you simply move up and hit your "USE" key (usually return).

Now you can fly!

 

 

**Now read this part carefully**

 

...or you'll end up crashing into everything before you know it:

 

- To lift off you push down the space bar, but dont hold it down too long or you will

activate the turbo thrust (this will cause a crash almost always)

just lift off a little and tap the forward key a few times.

The more times you tap the faster you will go.

Use turbo only when you know you have enough space to jet.

 

Multiplayer- To activate cheats, you do thing a little different.

 

***Activate the console by hitting: shift+tild(~)

***Next type: /devmapall "mapname".

(Example: /devmapall kotor_flight_school) = The map will load with cheats activated.

Now join the game and find a large area to spawn the craft.

***Open the console again and type:

/npc spawn vehicle "vehicle name".

 

(Example: /npc spawn vehicle tie-fighter). Notice that Multi Player you have to put the "/" slash before the command.

Umm... is it me or are the wings floating by themselves when viewed from an angle? That section should be solid covering the central hub and it's not. :-(

What do you mean by floating when viewed from an angle? I have tested the vehicle both in MP and SP, didn't noticed anything O.o

wings look transparent, but it's still nice to see EP7 stuff being made already

Yes, in fact they are actually transparent, that was one of the main ideas with creating this skin. I have put one big picture inside the file and also you can see it here on the screenshots (the last one) I have used some pictures from both trailers as this is the only thing you can find right now, to compare with the vehicle in game :P

I thought I said not to modify my skin Lord Vader....That means for personal use as well... It specifically said when i released my Darth Vader to not modify it at all without my consent, you can modify toshi's original vader, but not the version with my textures...

Sorry but I am using Toshi's model of Darth Vader and asked Jeff to make it with the sith hood instead of the mask. I don't like your version of the head and it doesn't fit right on the nose of Toshi's model in ModView, so i had to make a new one and I am not sharing the Vader model, but the TIE Fighter vehicle re-skin

They are not supposed to be transparent at all, you can see it from the screenshots above:  I hope you can fix it.

and while you're  at it, could you perhaps make a custom painted TIE fighter from the animated show, Rebels?

It is actually transparent look here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/senswnn7w1nz8te/TIEs_7.jpg?dl=0  and this is my very FIRST W.I.P. with a bit of serious work. I will try my best to make the Rebel's TIE you want, but I can't promise you anything yet.

Nope in my opinion they are metalic and white so they reflect the light that is relfected from the sand.

 

https://youtu.be/EZ8IyH8t7AI?t=75 - same here. The wing reflects the light from the explosion and it is 100% not transparent at all because it it full white there...

Seems that everyone can see what they personally wanna see and I can't sit all day making all versions to satisfy anyone, you know. So why don't we just WAIT to see more NEW and good photos from the movie, when the time comes and than we'll know if it's really metallic black with reflecting from the sand and white wings OR chromed with white OR black with transparent white wings. After that I can make the final version and release it ;)

Okay, I was unable to use this. It literally prevented me from Playing Jedi Academy as it overwrote the menus with white backgrounds and made customizations not work, like my console for example.

Wow. Did test it couple of times on different PCs and nothing like your problem happens. So I am not sure how to help you. Are you sure it's not from something else or maybe you have some other mods that are causing this result, or too much .pk3's in your base folder?! Try clean install and than put just this one with no other mods idk. :-/

I checked, none of my other .pk3s were conflicting or overwriting. Once I removed this file from my base folder everything returned to normal.
