Well, this review should be incredibly easy. This is an update to a previous skin/sword pack by this author. Let's have a look at the previous review:
Quote:**Note: In order to see these skins and models at their best, Dynamic Glow is advised.**
Plus blades: There are four different coloured plus blades: Red, Blue, Green, Yellow. The handle and the guard are decentley textured - no faults there. When looking at the metal blade and coloured crystal(?) from the saber selection menu, the texture didn't get a 'yes' from me. It looked too scratched and the back face of the sword, where I presume it was extruded, has a stretched texture on it, which also let it down. BUT, when in game, it didn't bother me at all. I - you won't really see the texture on the sword much due to the great dynamic glow on the crystal.
Incase some of you don't know who Commando SW-141 is, (I didn't) ''Commando SW-141 is a l33t mercenary working for the republic'' and he is a reskin of the Swamptrooper, as said earlier. There are four variations: Blue, Green, Red, Yellow. R,G,B are all selectable from the main character screen. Green being default and Red and Blue being team colours. Yellow can only be selected from the customizable character screen. Here you can mix them up any way you like, which I really liked - good addition.
The skins themselves look very good and I was impressed with them - even without the dynamic glow they still look pretty good.
The swamptrooper skin has been saturated and have had colours added to their helmet, arms, torso and legs. SW-141 has also been written across the side of his torso.
Sounds: There are new sounds for the SW-141 made by him. There is one taunt sound, as far as I know, and it says 'I'll cut your head off.' ~lol~. There are several death sounds aswell, but I can't type them out, for obvious reasons
I found this a brilliant pack and I will most definatley be keeping it in my base folder. Again, good job SithMasteR555!
Not a lot has been changed since version 1, so here's the author's list of changes:
Quote:I improved the lightblades as well.
I made most of the parts of SW-141's textures on my own, but still, there's
some stock textures which i recolored/darkened.
Also, I edited the sounds
And there you have it: a review that writes itself!
Now, I don't know why, but I liked the glow. I have always liked glowing skins or swords, and this was no exception. I think one or two of the sounds could have used a little more tweaking, but overall, this is a really nice file. I'm very impressed that the author made his own sounds - that's pretty uncommon. Good work!

How to install: Put sw141-v2.pk3 in your base folder (located inside the gamedata folder in your JK3 folder).
This is an improved version of the Commando SW-141 skin I released some time ago.
I remade the lightblades as well.
It's not perfect... but I tried to make it as good as I could.
If you glow effects, then make sure you have dynamic glow enabled.
("r_dynamicglow 1" in the console if it doesn't work from the menu)
DESCRIPTION FROM OLD FILE:
Commando SW-141 is a l33t mercenary working for the new republic. (Custom name FTW)

And you can customize it! w00t.
There are 4 variants: green, blue , red and a special version.
How to get the lightblades:
