Suggestion Title: RT_Enhancement_V1

Where the suggestion applies (In-game, TS3, Discord,etc.): Game

A Brief Description: Made up 4 models that can be used in place of some RT roles, roughly 7.1mb each. Two of which have extensive bodygroups. I've made up a pack which may be updated with c_arms etc but we'll see. Since i'm a lowly developer and didn't get permission to go on this venture. Here's the pack, if you don't want it added idc, I enjoyed making them.



How it benefits the server: RT will have swag

Coding or rules:
Coding ( if changing a couple of file paths counts ? )

Huuuuuuge +1. The models are absolutely stunning and I’m sure the troopers we have would love them

I know you did try the best you could with decreasing the file-sizes as you did compress and remove the normal maps. And since they're extensively customizable with the bodygroups it does seem rather worthwhile providing troopers with more options.

We'd need to find some kind of suitable ST replacement also. As there would be a clear favourable reason. These models also look very clone like compared to their originals which are supposed to be old republic.

I’m not gonna lie but delta spent a lot of time on these custom models just for the server and seems like the community likes them, I don’t really see the server as full swtor, the server is based off old republic yes, however I see the server adapting to its own ways of a era is well, You cant really put the server in a strict time frame or something like that. Also the models look great well done delta, In addition RT has asked so many times and requested a load of times for new models. If sith want some they can so do the same thing and request some. @nepisyourhomie

But does it really matter? Yes they may look like Clones version, but ik that RT has been wanting some new models so they're not stuck with just one model each rank (unless they have a custom model ofc). Delta showed it to us in Republic Trooper channel and i can say from what I saw that they loved the models. All that mkaes the difference is the helmet, the body is very similar to "The old Republic Trooper's" models, but they body looks similar to the specialist's body. PLUS, I have been trying to look for new models for Republic Troopers, either it's clones or models that are already in use. Delta actually took his time to make this for us yet it seems likely it won't be happening. Also fun fact: The Sentinel trooper model was basically a Clone model that Dogma said yes to, it was then in the works and now idk what has happened to it now, we are still waiting patiently tho. I really don't want Delta's work to be for nothing. I do not see a problem if we get these models accepted since the Sentinel Trooper is the clone engineer model.

We have been asking for new models for a long time, now we have a chance to get some new models. Please do not waste this oppertunity.

In addition, its aesthetics, what gives peoples the advantage?, It might look a little bit like clone but come on who cares, It’s something new, that troopers side of players would enjoy and hopefully you can accept that.

Just to add on to what chiken and Toby have said: you really can't place the server in a specific time-frame, considering all the different Grand Masters and Emperors there have been. Also, RT need some distinction right now, our second in commands and third in commands shouldn't look the same. I understand that it's the same role, but if a choice of models was added, a system could be devised where in Major Generals use this model, Majors use that model etc.
Delta's work should not be wasted purely because they look like clone models, or because the Sith don't have an equal. If they want something new like this, they could always request it themselves.

Well, thank you so much for all the responses RT's!

I assume you guys think Delta's work isn't appreciated; that would be false. We indulge delta's work and work of others that spend time and work on our server because we expect quality, this project of his is nothing but quality. On the statement of RT waiting for new models, we completely and utterly understand both trooper factions are awaiting models to change their thematic, I was only commenting on the general thematic of delta's models as I'm sure you guys are aware of the tones of clone and new innovation in these models make the clone parts more obvious. I appreciate the sudden responses as it seems I denied their entry. Not true.

I can imagine some of you guys talking to each other and wondering why It would seem that I'm going against delta doing work for us. I would have preferred if we could relay more of an old SWTOR theme, but I digress I will look into adding these models. Another thing is that the size of the file is quite large I might send it to Kalgar to see if he can lower the overall size.

Just an FYI for you guys we're not wasting anyone's work, we're not denying you an opportunity to play RT's. I love the responses, but let's be working together. We also have to treat both factions fairly is why I was against this from the get-go. It's important keeping both factions following a path. That's all. -Nep
