I finally got around to releasing what I kept teasing all those years ago ?
I know a similar model has already been submitted within the community, but I'd still like to release my version! The weights aren't perfect, and the tendrils can be a bit funky at times with some animations, but hey it's Kit Fisto, such a cool looking character in the Star Wars universe (in the video games and the clone wars animated series at least!).
So this features an RGB version (to be expected in any of my releases ?), sith version, reskin by Omicron, custom icons, sounds, shaders.
This may be improved in the future, but just glad to finally be able to finish up what I started! Please view the credits and readme file within the folder when you download this. I'm more than happy for anyone to improve on this model so we can upload a 2.0, and any new variants would be cool.
Sazen/Cloud - Original kitbash of the model
Spanki - Jedi robes, Noodle - Advice and creating mouth animations
Tompa9 - Version of the model for ideas, Omicron - Advice and skin variation
Milamber - Advice and dealing with my nagging
So based on Milamber's Chaos Knight model, I bring you an adaptation to this; with tribal patterns and glowing eyes... All the good stuff! When the JKGalaxies files were made publicly available and Pande made a topic about it, I had a look through them and found some cool looking female heads. We were initially going to go with a hair piece from it too, but it was very fiddly when it came to weighting and the appearance in-game with what's achievable via shaders, so Milamber worked with us and re-vamped the jedi_hf hairstyle to give a better looking ponytail and put it onto the JKG head. I can't get over how ugly that flat piece of hair is now that we have this lol, the three of us were always a good team! (just not on GTA, Mil sucks)
If you haven't guessed yet, this skin was made to be someone's personal skin, for Athena from |EFF|. Her brief was basically "make me something badass" xD we talked over many ideas and this is what we came up with. For some people there may be a few too many tribal patterns on the skin, but we are both super happy with the outcome. The red and blue teams were made after the main skin was finished, and they came out even better; it felt like a brand new skin for each one as they all bring a different theme to them, like good vs evil for sure.
We made this actually a good few months ago, but since she's gotten back into JKA properly again we figured it would be a good time to upload it here to JKHub so that even people outside of her clan can enjoy it and it can get the attention it deserves. There's very few cool looking female skins (no twi'leks don't count! haha), so this one should add to the ranks. It's got a new set of taunts to add to the skin; some sounds from darth talon, some from tavion, a mix of sounds to make something epic. I've got another female skin on the way soon!
Any issues with the ponytail are unavoidable due to the transparency, it's as good as it's going to get with shaders. Besides that there shouldn't be any issues with the skin, at least I don't think so haha, it's been a while since i've been playing JKA so if you find anything feel free to drop me a PM and let me know so I can update it.
On the first day Athena said "make me a skin", on the second day she said "I trust your majick hands" (true story).. the rest is history. Okay I tried to put something funny at the end, but it was much funnier in my head.. xD
Anyways, I hope you enjoy this release, there will be more to come soon from me so keep your eyes peeled!
Now for the important bit.
This skin has been created for someone specific, if you wish to modify it please contact myself, Milamber or the owner (Athena) for permission. Nobody likes it when something you put effort into looking a certain way, or when your personal skin get's taken into someone else's hands and changed into something ugly for their benefit. It's being uploaded here simply so others can see it and enjoy using it, so please respect that.
Using Tyrael64's twi-lek reskin to create the Darth Talon skin we all love, I have created a version 2 with added clothing options and most importantly (for me atleast!) RGB.
This started out as a simple reskin for a friend of mine Fuzzy/sMile when we all came back to JKA and started playing in a JA+ community again, but it quickly turned into something a little bit more involved as I was playing with frankensteining at the time. It's a skin that you have to see to appreciate, as a lot of the change to the skin since Tyrael's skin was released is only seen in-game, when the RGB takes control and you can also look through the species selection to see how much choice you have now. You will see in the readme that I made this skin months ago, i've just been pretty busy to really release anything, so everything's being released at once, like christmas is coming early for you guys lol.
You can see a full list of the icons that display what clothing options are available in this skin here:
I have now uploaded some screenshots to give you a better idea of what's inside the PK3. It features Darth Malgus's respirator, Darth Sion's shoulderguard and Darth Revan's hood; a bunch of sith lord attire for one badass lady of the sith. There are also many specular and glowing shaders which you will notice when you use it in-game. Most importantly for me is the RGB functionality that I have introduced, but it also has a bunch of fresh new icons, using a new background template I have put together to make it stand out from the standard default JK3 icon image that we all use.
It was crazy to send Tyrael a message for credits, not expecting any kind of response but to hear him be impressed with what I have done and sound so enthusiastic, even after him being away from JKA for so long. Things like this give you that motivation to continue what you are doing, even if it's something which to yourself seems to simple, and knowing that frankensteining isn't half as difficult as it would have been back then before the plugins we have now were available.
I hope you like what I have done, hopefully there won't be any issues with the skin. I have also made it inside a "jedi_.." folder to avoid any RGB conflicts with team game modes and such. If you have any problems feel free to contact me and i'll update the skin. Again this skin wouldn't have been possible without Tyrael's original Darth Talon skin, so a big thank you goes out to him.
...and so it begins
Now for the important bit.
This skin was initially created for a friend as a personal skin, but I do understand that this is simply a generic star wars themed skin with extra model parts. If you wish to modify this skin then please tell me so I can see what you have done, but as far as using the skin is concerned I don't mind. This is uploaded onto a public community site so you're more than welcome to use it for yourself and enjoy it. If you re-upload it with any changes or intend to use it elsewhere please give the credit where it's given (all original README files are included in the PK3, so don't be lazy).
There was a request for a skin which is no longer available for download, so I recreated it, and hopefully improved upon it in the process
Here is a list of what is included:
Mars Marshall's Darth Maul: Shirtless, Robed and Hooded.
Reskins for Maulkiller and Savage Opress
Shaders for the clothing.
As it was a reskin of Darth Maul, I felt that I should include the original skins too, so that's why they are included. I have also removed duplicate files to reduce the overall filesize, and added teamsupport and icons as mentioned above to suit everyone.
Credits to Illidan Kazama for the reskin design of Maulkiller & Savage opress, and Mars Marshall who is the original author/creator of the model.
Please view the Mars Marshall Readme, as he is the creator of the model.
Like most people who create custom skins, you will eventually be creating your model's icons in JKA's default icon style as a standard procedure in your work.
I always felt that the versions of the icons that people created always limited how much of them you could use. For example, they may not be quite as bright in colour, or there'll be parts missing in the center.
So here, we have a set of the default icons, with additional colours in the same shade of colour to make it more authentic. I have created these icons directly from skin's icons from the game, and filled in the extras where needed. I'd like to think my version is the most accurate (if you were to compare), so enjoy!
p.s if you don't know how to use this then follow this simple guide
This is just a simple re-skin of the original Tie-Pilot skins, with several added colours. The original ones were too dull and boring, so I added some shaders, and brightened them up. I have used these for a long time and had much fun with them, as i'm sure you will when you use them. I didn't do lots re-skinning on these, just brightened them up and included some shaders and modified the icons for them. This was the first skin I made which I was happy with keeping, so enjoy!
