In-Game Legion/Skin Chooser

Post by commanderawesome »

This mod adds new commands to the 1.3 patch's fake console, which will allow you to change the appearance of units in-game (such as changing the legion of clone troopers). All four main factions will be supported.

This mod changes appearances only. The weapons, ammo, equipment, etc of the classes will NOT be changed.



Likely-to-be frequently asked questions
When is this coming out?
When it's done. I don't know an exact date. I can't predict the future.

Is it online-compatible?
Yes.

Can I use this with Battlefront Evolved?
Yes. And it will keep the Battlefront Evolved models and animations.

What other mods are compatible?

Battlefront Extreme
Rising Conflict CW
The Battlefront Project
Elite Sides Mod II
The Conversion Pack
Any other mod or map that uses the stock sides or something close to the stock sides.
Can I add my own skins?
I hope to add that feature. No guarantees.

Will you release the assets?
When the mod is finished, i'll release the code for it. But not most of the skins, as they are made by others and can be found elsewhere. (Don't worry, they're all publicly released skins.)

I can't play online because of my slow internet so I don't know for sure, but I think it should because it should only affect your screen, as all it does is load and replace textures (and MAYBE models).

This only changes the appearance of the clones, not their weapons or the heroes. But the 212th jet trooper looks like Commander Cody. ;)

Sounds great maybe you can add the evolved skins, too.

A selection screen just the way the side selection - so you can decide on every start the skin you like - would be awesome.

The models or the textures? This only changes textures at this point.

Basically the same thing Anakin said. Evolved troopers are HD.

That't part of the texture. Though i'm considering replacing it with a better one and adding the visor as an addon mesh. Can you do that in-game? If yes then i'll also add a pauldron to the 327th trooper.

Screens Updated.

EDIT
Well, I have some very bad news. My external hard drive, which contained my BF2 mod tools, has fried. I took it to a computer hardware professional, but is uncertain whether the drive is repairable and/or if the data is salvageable. This means, If my drive is lost, I'll have to restart from scratch.

I took this to heart when I was working on Darda: Beach and accidentally stopped a munge. I saved everything but it was a wake-up call. From then on I made a daily backup of the source files for the map on the cloud.

Precisely. When Tean's Xbox Mod was lost, I decided to install SyncToy and set it to automatically backup Unification (along with other important mod projects) to my external hard drive, another hard drive, and Google Drive every night.

I hadn't heard of SyncToy. Thanks!

On Topic: Sorry to hear about this mod. Any news on potential recovery at this point? Or starting over?

It's not looking good. I'll still work on this though, even if I have to restart.

I haven't, in fact, I've been working on it over the past few weeks.

I've already implemented the following skin sets (only for the Republic so far):
Plain White Troopers
Phase II to Phase I
BFX-style 501st
212th Attack Battalion (With visor addon for Jet Trooper)
Shock Troopers
327th Star Corps (With pauldron addons)
41st Elite Corps
41st Jungle Camo
Galactic Marines
91st Recon Corps
5th Fleet Security
442nd Siege Battalion (Sky Corps)

And i'll be adding the following shortly:
7th Legion
38th Armored Division
146th Legion (from the convo pack)
187th Legion
Phase 1 Snowtroopers
Phase 1 Skins
