Just looked at it. Good work! I have only a few minor suggestions.

First, the music should only autoplay on the main page...annoying for every page.
Second, instead of having lightsaber blade-esque dividers, just put mini full lightsabers. Handle and all.
Third, best of all, don't use just green.....put in ones of different colors! :p

I'll check it out and see what i can do, i prob should have just put the music in for the first page on it's own anyway, with different tracks for different pages, i just love "Duel Of The Fates" - it's my fave Star Wars piece ever

I've got them all too, on my laptop :D Battle of the Heroes and DotF are both EPIC. Across the Stars is good too, and who can't forget the Imperial March? :p
It has been reported that some victims of rape, during the act, would retreat into a fantasy world from which they could not WAKE UP. In this catatonic state, the victim lived in a world just like their normal one, except they weren't being raped. The only way that they realized they needed to WAKE UP was a note they found in their fantasy world. It would tell them about their condition, and tell them to WAKE UP. Even then, it would often take months until they were ready to discard their fantasy world and PLEASE WAKE UP

The clone trooper's torso looks a bit like a girl's :p
Try adding some more mass especially at the arms and belly: these guys are tough, and the armor is about 1 cm thick + underclothing.
Also the normal map is a bit exagerrated, try reducing it's depth or the armor will look like it's made of eroded rock instead of a smooth semi-plastic ballistic material :xcahik_:

The screenshot looks awesome.

I agree about normal map on the armor, the model itself however was modelled over pics of the clone armor from Episode II so as such the arms, torso and stuff are the appropriate width, the only thing I did leave out was the utility belt which is a fairly bulky piece and that might have added to the more brawny look you're talking about. Also the fact that it has a dark background probably means the shaded parts are blending with the background alittle. We'll have to try it out ingame and see where we go from there as it is, I'll most likely tone down the normal map, I just need to see how it reacts in game.

To show you what I mean regarding the skinny arms etc. here's a pic.

And this one with a different background, I know the skin isn't accurate but I aint no skinner

Did you make it? We can't have models ingame that we can't atleast give the proper credit for, it prevents issues arising in the future.

The model is not selfmade, but i have all rights to use it for my or your mod :-)

Polys, I dont know exactly but you can play with this model ingame without any problem, because I have coded in my Count Dooku, and Count have much more Polys than this Clon-Trooper.

But without knowing who originally made the model we can't put it in. If we use JK files which seems to be the case here, we get in contact with the original creator, we then ask for permission, we then add their name to a list of credits which will appear on the mods startup screen. We do not take any models which we cannot give the appropriate credit for, regardless of where you downloaded the model from, we consider it disrespectful to do so without direct contact with the creator. Because there are certain issues that need to be discussed, like if the model is based on another model which is all ready in game in another game/mod, in regards to the aforementioned, if it is a tweaked game model and the changes aren't sufficient then we could get in trouble for copyright infringement. In the case where we cannot contact the creators more often than not I'll make my own version, or include the readme to the file along with the original models statement/info in the mod.

I'm sorry but that's the way things are done here, we want to protect our mod and the creators, I know you may have permissions to use the models in your own mod, however the assets in question regardless of the liberties you may have with the models simply aren't yours to give away. It really is for our own safety and for your well being, because if people understood you were giving away other peoples property then it wouldn't bode well around here. Saying that, if you can provide me with the readme to the models, I will gladly contact the creators myself, however without such information none of the models offered will appear ingame. This is not meant to offend you or anything but the fact remains that if you go to any mod around here they will all have pretty similar rules and regulations.

Ed, would it add a ton of a polys to smooth it out a little bit? Particularly the arms, helmet, and legs...it's just bugging me a little :p


Oh, and maybe you shouldn't remove the previous updates from the first post? :p
