About This File

I haven't seen many reskins for the default r2d2 (not including reskins used to create other Astromechs,) and the Raven/LucasArts version was starting to look a little dated. I released a similar skin with my 'Unofficial Update' mod, but wanted to go a step further - including better shaders, and animated glow effects. I used clips from the movies (both from video and YouTube,) Google images, and even a prior encounter with the original costume/prop as references when working on the textures - in an effort to be as faithful to R2's various on-screen appearances as possible. I also included the sounds from my prior release with this one. Just a heads-up: this reskin does replace the original Ravensoft textures (in case you're a fan of the default skin.)

What's New in Version 2.0

Released

  • Added glow effects and animations. Also updated the shaders to include a slightly muted shine around R2's photoreceptor "eye", and a more "lens-like" reflection for the holo-projectors.

Recommended Comments

I never noticed that the original model had no glow effect, something that is essential to R2-D2. Hell, even the bluish tint on the head has been replaced

with a more metallic look. He definitely looks more like in the movies now, and that's a big improvement.

 

Thank God that there are still people around who really care for details.
