View Full Version : [SKIN] Skaarj v2

27th Mar 2004, 05:21 PM
I got a little bored just doing the Necris, so I decided to touch up the Skaarj skins as well. I've recoloured it, added blood splatters and cleaned up the wrist blades (I removed the black bits, so they look proper) and added some tribal tattoos. I got my main inspiration from the Skaarj in Unreal 2, and wanted to find out your thoughts on a few queries:

1. Should this skin replace and existing Skaarj?
2. Should I put tribal tattoos on the face (since the tattoos will be part of the team skins and since you can't have team skins on heads, the blue tattoos may look silly on the red team skin)?

Heres a pic:

I shouldn't bother tattooing the face for team stuff and you cant' replace existing skins if you want to play online, but it looks damned fine! I'm impressed! :)

Well if thats the case, its pretty much finished :)
Unless there is anything else you want changed/added?

Just look at Ophelia of the (and pretty much all of them) Hellions in the game :
- add a faceskin-texture for each team like the bodyskins
- use 'TeamFace=1' in the character-entry in the .upl-file for your character ...

Whoah! If that's true i can fix some old stuff up!

As for the Skaarj it's ahrd to suggest anything it's a damned fine skin! Maybe try those BLue tattoo's out in dark green?

Wow that's awesome. Looking forward to it.

It's right BTW just add! ",TeamFace=1" then your faces will change in the same way as your body skins! Damned fine!

Looky looky! It got finished!

So i say tattoo up that Skaarjy face! :D

Well its pretty much done, team skins and portrait are completed as well. Thanks for the info on team head skins, but I think I'll leave it as it is. All taht remains is to try and make a uMod installer, I can get that working except for the default installation path, since there is no option to select a UT2004 directory, only UT2003. Can anyone help with this?

How are you trying to make the umod? I use the UMod Wizard (http://www.planetunreal.com/umodwizard/), and by adding this to the presets.ini it all works fine:

Thanks, thats fixed it :D
Would anyone mind testing out the uMod for me? Just to confirm it works on another machine. If you want to (I'll accept as many testers as possible), then just gimme an email at funk_fm@hotmail.com.

SealClubber, I won't be releasing a manual install version (to much hassle for the less experienced user) but if you want I could send you a zip version?
