Hi,

I've always tried to encourage community skinning, so here is my lastest idea. Create a skin pack which containts characters from classic deathmatch games. I'm talking about games like Quake 3 and Turok: Rage Wars. Is anyone interested? If so, just chose your favourite charcter, skin them (skins only, no new models and team colours are required) and submit them to me at funk_fm@hotmail.com

Here are a few examples of some characters which can be done (all from Turok: Rage Wars):

Great idea , but I think teamcolors would be really nice .
You can have two great teams , if you play .For example "deathmatch classics" in the red team and the Harbinger SkinPack on the blue side.
Also a new race would be useful like "Deathmatch Classics".

I like your idea about adding a new race, but I don't know if its possible to play online that way...

NB: If we're gonna have a full team, we'll need 8 skins.

I donīt know it , too :D , but you always need the skin on the server to play online , so Iīm sure it will work like the other customskins.

i like the idea, but i agree with SaD. team colors are almost a must, especially for those who forget what skin they're using when they drop in on a team game.

are new models a possibility? cuz i think of a few old skins I'd like to see, but i don't know how well they'd work without new models.

I didn't notice how many replies the CSP had, thats why I had the idea for this. But now that I see the popularity of the CSP, I think we should put this on hold for a while. But, team colours ARE essential and I suppose we could get some new models - like the Sarge remake from this very forum :D

I always found after gaming about an hour or two against bots that skisn started to merge almost and bots I'd setup as team skins for just bots stood out better, don't know what the hell this has to do with your post but that was my brain tease......sorry....

Why did you feel the need to post that in such an old thread?
