DATE RELEASED: 23 Oct 2006

NPC support : Yes

***** Features *****

* Skins : Shiva is a Hindu god if you don't know :) I reskined jedi_tf to make them. there are many you can chose from the
player setting menu, it's more like a matching game though.

* Weapons : Shiva use Ice Cube as weapon. No not those you put in drinks! They look like snow flakes.
Also Shiva has a pair of solid swords, claws, and a staff. All weapon = custom models + saber effects!


***** To Install *****

1) Unzip and place " BB_Shiva_Skin.pk3 " *a skin file
" BB_Shiva_Wep.pk3 " *weapon file
" BB_MENUS_2.pk3 " *saber menu script

into your Jedi Academy base folder: StarWars JediKnight Jedi Academy/GameData/base


2) Open "CHOSE ONE" folder inside the zip, and chose one of them:

" BB_Shiva_MP " for Multi Player game (MP).
or " BB_Shiva_SP " for Single Player Game (SP).

and place it into /base folder. DO NOT place both.

That's all ! for the rest files and discriptions read below :)


The reason to chose " BB_Shiva_MP " or " BB_Shiva_SP " :

This will effect how the "weapon effects" looks in MP or SP game. Because I found out they react differently.
Doesn't mean you have to place the right one to run the game or anything. But don't place both or they will conflict.
It's ok too if you install " BB_Shiva_SP " and go play a Multi Player game for example, if you like what you see.


Inside the "extra choice" folder :

" BB_MENUS_3 " : This is a menu script that binds all the list of weapons from this "shiva" mod and my other "BB_Ifrit" mod.
If you have both mod installed you can just put this "BB_MENUS_3" in your base folder and remove the
other menus so you can have all the weapons from both mods together on your menu.
"BB_MENUS_1" is menu of all the "BB_Ifrit" weapons.
"BB_MENUS_2" is menu of all the "BB_Shiva" weapons.
"BB_MENUS_3" is menu of all the "BB_Ifrit" and "BB_Shiva" weapons.
So if you put "BB_MENUS_3" in your base folder you don't need the other 1 and 2, get it?

" BB_Shiva_MP_2.pk3 " : A replacement for "BB_Shiva_MP" above. In this version, all Single "IceCube" are throwable.
The above one isn't. I set that to default because this one "MP_2" is buggy when you throw.
You can fix that by join a MP game, and after you join, "restart match" once, the 2nd time you
join the game you should be able to throw with no problems. It worked for me at least..
If you are going to install this file, remove "BB_Shiva_MP" from your base folder first.

"BB_ShivaNPC.pk3 " : This is a NPC file for SIngle Player. To install, put it in /base folder and activate console,
and type "npc spawn...." or "playermodel...." you know..
The names and descriptions are below,

name: sv1 *Blue Shiva with armor, carrys a stff type IceCube.
sv2 *Red Shiva with armor, carrys with a weird shaped stff.
sv3 *White green Shiva, almost naked & see through skirt. armed with Chakrams.

***** To Uninstall *****

Remove all files that's belong to "" from your base folder.


Bugs and Compatibility :

I found the menu script for player menu and saber menu seems always conflict with each other.
So if you have other saber mod or new species mod with menus in your base folder, you might see like no names or
no images on the custom sabers. My menu scripts are in those named "BB_MENUS.pk3" files alone, you can remove
them without touching the weapon files.
The Shiva skin " BB_Shiva_Skin.pk3 " is a stand-alone file as well if you only want to keep the skins.

About graphics, the skins and effects are tested excessively so there should be no floater. But your machine will decide
what you see so I can't tell you what you should see :) but no I don't have the best nor old graphic card no no.

There are 2 shiva skins that have bright glow effect. If you try to mix it's body part with the other none glow leg skins.
You will see some disappearing texture. So don't mix it. Or do! and laugh at it. :D
