Recon Trooper's New Empire Side Mod (1.0) - File Description  

This side mod, by Recon Trooper, is a set of mostly visual changes for the stock Imperial side.

It's worth noting that while his readme says:
And YES! Compatible Online!!
...I sincerely doubt he's tested that as it makes several changes that should disallow online use (changing unlock points, changing weapon odf names). In any case, this sides mod, unfortunately, seems to have all the limitations of an online-compatible sides mod with none of the advantages (i.e. actually being able to play online).

The changes themselves are a very odd assortment, and it might be more appropriate to call this a collection of random assets from people rather than a true "sides mod," since it seems like most changes (retextures, models) are simply things other people made and the author downloaded and slapped together. Some of the additions are truly bizarre, like a droid model for the Imperial sniper.

In addition to the haphazard assortment of random assets, there are a few bugs. First of all, a couple of the guns have incorrect FPM views (the Dark Trooper's award pistol is one). There's also at least one missing localization (which is how you can tell that a new weapon was added, making the sides mod online-incompatible).

To sum up, this feels like a very disorganized showcase of a bunch of other people's work rather than a well-done side mod. That is not to say that I doubt the author could make a sides mod, but it would be best to plan out a theme (like one consistent color, for example) and choose assets that make sense to fit that theme. Simply downloading a bunch of assets that look "cool" and mixing them all together is like taking a bunch of your favorite foods and blending them together in the hopes of a delicious meal. (Hint: It is not delicious.)

The thing I like about these plasma grenades is that they auto stick on the enemy.
For instance. You through a grenade and it lands infront of the enemy. The enemy walks over it and it sticks on their foot. If you through it directly at their leg, hands, body and head it sticks to them immediatly.

-Codarez for making the Fallenn Hyper Rifle, SWG Style rocket launcher, DC15 sidearm.
-DarthRogueKnight for making and converting the Alliance Needler.
-AQT for the Orange Shocktrooper skin.
-Labj for the fantastic Stormtrooper Commander Model.
-Kinetosimpetus for the amazing BX Commando Droid, retouched a bit by me.
-DarthDuck for the remapped trooper and 2 handed pistol animation.
-Computergeek for the most awesome plasma grenades.
-Repsharpshooter for the Flechete shotgun model.
-EGG_GUTS for the Admiral Zsinj player model.
-Recon Trooper (Me) for everything else.

-And most of all... GAMETOAST for being there and for helping me with modding!!!!


Special thanks to:

Mswf for heaps and heaps of modding solutions and help.
Codarez for most of the weapons used.
AQT for many modding solutions and skins.
Labj for awesome stormtrooper skins.
And Gametoast for everything possible to remember.

Beta Testers-

Recon Trooper

Thanks and Enjoy!

Hmm, you just see so many side mods, and they all seem to be the same. This does look promising though, but I highly doubt online works.

Online compatability is only preseved if you change visuals (textures and meshes) only. You can't give units plasma grenades and expect to be able to use those online.

Its a shame this mod looked very good, I mean I like everything but the weapons float next to the characters and I hate that. Well done for trying.
