Saboteur Faceplate

About This File

The Imperial Saboteur in Jedi Academy originally had a visor covering his face, which was removed very late into development. This mod just brings that visor back. It's not the best, but I guess it works alright?

 

Bugs:
- Whenever the saboteur goes invisible, his visor turns to a bright almost white color as he switches. I'm pretty sure this is because the visor is made with shaders, because if he's holding a weapon with a chrome shader over it for example, the same thing happens.
- I couldn't figure out how to give the faceplate twosided culling or something, so the visor will appear invisible if you're viewing the saboteur from behind.

You know, this does highlight a theoretical issue about transparent pieces on player models. I'm glad you got it worked out! If the only bugs are cloaking and seeing it from behind, it still might work for what my hopes are one day! Thanks for working on this!

The helmet makes more sense now. Whenever I looked at it, I had this feeling that it had something missing.

Whatever the reason was, it was a pointless decision to remove the faceplate in the first place.

I think this looks a hell of a lot better than the base/vanilla one. I honestly have no idea why the developers removed the faceplate.

I remember trying restoring the visor, and it seems, the developers removed it, as they weren't satisfied with collision of shaders (glass visor + cloaking effect), which spoiled the sudden appearance of the Saboteurs in the game. The other reason (though unlikely) is that a glass mesh wasn't in line with the style of the characters in JA.
