W4rbird's newly modified "Possessed Tavion" is something that may make several gamers happy. It takes the new Tavion model from the default Jedi Academy and brightens it up, gives it an electrical shader, and makes the eyes appear possessed to create the effect, as well as providing an electrocuted Stringer hilt. I like what's here, but I do not feel that the intent of the skin is fully realized.

The Stinger hilt that now has an electrical shader is fine, not much to say. I don't really like that hilt though; it's just so boring.... However, I do like electrocuted Tavion, whose features have now been brightened up so that she's not so dark anymore; I can actually see her model details in-game. The electrical shader looks quite good, and the author even managed to make the first animated (electricity effect) player icon I've ever seen. What could have been better was the eyes, which don't look intrinsically bad as being bright red fixations of a deadly stare, but for a possessed Tavion, they're a little hokey. I think these plainly red eyes need to be changed to something deeper, something that better represents the fire that a possessed Tavion needs to have.

Why I can't recommend it is a more obscure reason, one with which many might disagree. The skin does indeed look pretty good, but the problem that I had with it is that a possessed Tavion needs to both look possessed and sound possessed. I heard the same corny, one-dimensional Tavion cackles and jeers when a truly possessed Tavion would have a more sinister, perhaps deeper in pitch, tone of voice, one that sounds more maniacal; this may be partially done by simply editing the already-existing sound files with a simple, open-source audio editor like Audacity to lower the pitch. That's why this skin really doesn't seem complete to me. However you I'm sure don't really care, and I don't see why else you shouldn't get this skin if you'd like a Tavion with sparks.

*taps Ra-Kom on the shoulder, lowers his voice* Um, you DO know that the actual Possessed Tavion skin here comes with the game, red eyes and all, right? She was the final boss of the single-player game if you followed the light side path. Type model tavion_new/possessed in the console, even with a clean base folder.

So you should, you know, blame Raven for the hokiness of it, and not W4rbird. He just did the electricity shader-- hence, MODIFIED Possessed Tavion. Still pretty cool, though... and congrats to W4rbird for getting TWO featured files in the same week! Has that ever happened before?

Oh... oops. smile

Well I knew that there was a possessed Tavion at the end of JKA, but I didn't know you could use her. That information changes what my review should have said, but my opinion on the file remains the same: even if he did just modify an already-possessed Tavion, he needed to make her better. Raven did a crappy job.
