About This File

RELEASED: 4 August 2015

AUTHOR: Cerez (cerezk.oz@gmail.com)

 

SUMMARY:

 

New Model: Yes

Bot: Yes

NPC: Yes

Team Support: Yes

Custom Sounds: Yes

Custom Lightsaber: Yes

 

DESCRIPTION:

 

A lifelike rendition of the character Ahsoka Tano, Padawan to Anakin Skywalker, from around the time of her departure from the Jedi Order.

 

FEATURES:

-----------------------------------

 

AHSOKA AS SINGLE-PLAYER SIDEKICK:

 

Have Ahsoka assist you on your single-player missions. After loading a level and activating cheat mode, type this in the game's console:

 

npc spawn ahsoka

 

A CHATTY BOT:

 

Ahsoka's multiplayer bot has a true-to-character, chatty personality, and is loaded with new things to say -- directly sourced from and inspired by her character talk and snap-backs from official games and TV show episodes, leading up to the end of The Clone Wars.

 

NEW DUAL LIGHTSABER COMBINATION:

 

Ahsoka being a dual lightsaber wielder in the traditional fashion, with a shoto blade, I've included her second lightsaber in the game's lightsaber selection menu. This allows the player to actually use a shoto (shorter bladed lightsaber). I found this makes fighting against duals a little less predictable, and helps to spice things up a bit both visually, and in terms of gameplay.

 

Console Reference:

Primary: tano

Supporting (Shoto): tano2

 

INSTALLATION:

-----------------------------------

 

Simply move the PK3 files into the "base" folder of your game directory.

 

KNOWN BUGS:

-----------------------------------

 

Slight clipping with the skirt and limbs in certain movement/poses, unavoidable due to the game's technical design limitations.

Oh boy...wow. This. This was just amazing.

 

I guess I'll start with the model herself.

 

The likeness is fantastic! There is essentially nothing on this model that doesn't look like it matches the Ahsoka it was based off of.

I think if you compared this model with her Clone Wars counterpart there really isn't anything that does not accurately represent her.

I am pleased to see that she does come will facial expressions, which speaking on topic of the face, I know I have had some concerns about this one but really there is absolutely nothing wrong with it. It resembles Ahsoka quite accurately and I don't think anyone will be disappointed by it once they see it in person.

The only thing I might have liked to see added is in the inclusion of her saber holsters on her belt.

 

On to the textures, everything here is an accurate replication of what you would see on the Clone Wars Ahsoka. From the light shade of black on the pants to her front skirt is replicated incredibly well. I see very little noticeable texture stretching on her, which pleases me as those can be quite annoying depending on where you view a model. The only thing that seems a bit off to me is that the skin on the sides of the legs seems a little flat and there is also the use of mirrored textures. That is mainly a pet peeve of mine but I can certainly overlook it as the attention to detail and dedication that I can clearly see that was poured into this model really makes it what I think is THE best Ahsoka Season 3 model we will ever get.

 

The file also includes sounds, which from what I tested worked out quite well and were almost funny in fact. One thing I did notice while trying her out in game is that one of her sabers blade colors was coming out as yellow and I believe they were both green. Not sure if this was just an error on my side or not but regardless, this file is top notch and while I do have minor comments on this file it is hardly anything to compared to this model as a whole.

 

This model is so great it deserves to be placed in the definitive guide for Characters, where I will add it shortly.

 

Cerez, I applaud you for your magnificent work and look forward to whatever future files your will bring the community!

 

Rating: 5/5 Snips

Well done, glad to see this finally released. This is no doubt the best ahsoka model for seasons 3 and onward there is.

Dank homie. You slayed this one. :) Not trying to hoe up my own projects, but let's just say a certain squadron of Brainworm contaminated soldiers will be making an appearance to slaughter this new Ahsoka..

What a nice model! Not only does it show us Ahsoka at best of her years as a Jedi, but it's close to what she might have looked like aside from the series. A realistic look. :) Good work!

Technically they were both green, but her secondary saber was a much lighter green, almost yellow. I would have given her yellow as well.

 

Anyway, very nice model! Going from the only other Ahsoka model we have to this is a vast difference. Congrats on the release Cerez. Can't wait to see what else you have in store. :)

Really nice to see a realistic take on a Clone Wars character.

 

Technically they were both green, but her secondary saber was a much lighter green, almost yellow. I would have given her yellow as well.

 

On this matter, a good middle ground would be to use the trick with two blades, one green and one yellow, on the same lightsaber to create that peculiar color.

It's supposed to be lime coloured, but despite what Dave Filoni said at first, the final colour in production ended up being more yellow than green:

That is if you exclude the ever-changing colour factor of The Clone Wars' lighting, and the production goof in the final episodes of season 5 (where she loses her main lightsaber, but ends up losing her shoto instead). At first I thought the second blade was green, too, but careful research proved it otherwise. It's actually a slightly greenish yellow.

Apart from the great visuals, this is a very well done model from a performance perspective. You can tell it was made with the engine's limitations in mind. I think even Onysfx could use this without an FPS drop. Impressive work Cerez!

Looks beautiful! Only thing I notice, the face a bit looks differentt than the clone wars one, idk why. Bit other than that the quality and the detail on his look is awesome, she's got perfect body in both ways ;)

Oh I like high quality models, no matter how high quality they are, never sacrifice quality just for me XD....but be sure to include LOD's.

The model is amazing, concidering that you first had to request this to be made, by DT85 or anyone else, but then you just.... made it yourself

Is it supposed to look like her voice actor? Cause there's a serious resemblance between this Ahsoka's face and Ashley Eckstein's. Whether that's intended or not, this is an awesome model.

The cartoon Clone Wars Ahsoka also has Ashley's facial features, just exaggerated. ;)

first post; please pardon any percieved noobishness...  it's likely an accurate perception, lol!

 

quick question: this mod is for use in SP, right?

 

if its not, im gonna feel pretty stupid... got everything dropped into my /base folder, but cant find her in char gen.  i can /playermodel ahsoka and get her to show up, i'd just rather not have to hack her into every scene...

 

@cerez, i shoulda asked here first.  apologies for the mail...

...and just found the development thread on the forums and your reference to the SP extension.  Amazing at what some digging can do....
