Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy
Title: Jedi Lord Bara Tzu - Version 1.0
Author: Xhuzan_Tzu - firstname.lastname@example.org
Date Released: February 22, 2009
Bara Tzu is my personal Star Wars character, a Kel Dor from the
Star Wars: Dark Forces thru Star Wars: Legacy time period. Bara Tzu
has become one of few Jedi Knights to have resurrected the title of
"Jedi Lord" from antiquity, due to his prominent status of nobility
he acquired through his diplomatic workings on many planets. He
takes the title, not out of superiority, but rather to shrug off
other loftier titles he has been offered by the silver-tongued
Bara Tzu is a Baran Do Sage turned Jedi, who has a rich history
which has played out through various gaming clans and academies
which I have been a part of over the years with Jedi Knight II and
I began the project of finally portraying this character as a JK:JA
skin back in September, and after putting the project on hold over
the holidays, I finally picked it back up this February and finished
tzu.pk3 - 4.55MB
Contains 3 stand-alone reskins of the Kel Dor male
customizable skin from the base game. There is a "training" skin,
which has Bara's Baran Do style Jedi robes. There is a "dress" skin
which has his ceremonial garments for use in his role as a Jedi
consular. Finally, there is a "mission" skin, which is Bara's very
specially attuned Jedi battle armor. It should be noted that the
battle armor is a mixture between standard issue Jedi armor and some
of his own Baran Do monk-like leather armors, as some of Bara's Force
powers require a direct attunement with natural forces and the metals
of the Jedi armor restrict them to some degree.
tzu_hilt.pk3 - 709KB
Contains a reskinned lightsaber hilt, known as "Peacemaker," Bara
Tzu's personal weapon recovered from ancient Jedi ruins on the planet
Chandrila and reconstructed and attuned from instructions from a Jedi
holocron found with it.
Model = Raven Studios / Lucas Arts Kel Dor male, base game
Skins = Some portions of the skin are recolors of the base skin, the
rest are my own personally created textures. Though I did
little of the skin work from scratch, I did attempt to alter
everything from the original textures as much as possible to
achieve the look I wanted without compromising the natural
feel of the skin with the rest of the game.
Saber = The lightsaber, Peacemaker, is a recolor of one of the Zefex
sabers by Klasal K, therefore all credit to the saber must
go there. I simply liked the saber and could no longer find
the lightsaber "Peacemaker" that I originally took to using
from an old hilt pack that appears to be no longer
Sounds = Raven Studios / Lucas Arts Weequay, base game
Shader = Raven Studios / Lucas Arts Kel Dor male, base game
Extract the file tzu.pk3 into your GameData/base or whatever
alternate folder you use to load skins for your mod (such as
Optional Saber Installation:
Extract the file tzu_hilt.pk3 into your GameData/base, etc. as per
the instructions above.
As these are my own personal skins, they are not selectable from the
main character selection screen; they are "hidden." To select the
skin for use, enter the console (~) in game, and type:
/model tzu/training - for the training robes skin
/model tzu/dress - for the ceremonial dress skin
/model tzu/mission - for the battle armor skin
There are no NPC or Botfile scripts with this release.
This skin does not support team colors.
The only currently known bugs are in the mission skin. Since the
skin surfs various model parts together that were not intended to
be used in this manner, there is a small seam on the right arm at
the shoulder joint, which can be noticed every once and awhile,
particularly when there is a bright, light-colored surface in front
of the player. Also, there are a few minor clipping errors on the
left gauntlet. These errors were expected, and were covered up to
the best of my ability during the skinning process. I feel they are
barely noticeable and a worthy price to pay for a very unique look.
