This mod adds a new texture for Stormtrooper (battle) and Stormtrooper SpecOps armour. The new texture is much dirtier and more akin to a sandtrooper.

Unlike all previous stormtrooper re-textures this re-texture does not change NPC stormtroopers, it only changes player armour!

As well as making the armour look dirty, I have also changed the stripes for the spec ops version and have made the white armour stripes blue. The reason for this was to make it look more like the Stormtrooper Commander from Force Unleashed, though because only a couple pieces of the armour actually allow for the stripes to appear I unfortunately could not go all the way. Still, it looks better than the normal black stripes I think. The downside to this is that anyone wearing the black variant will still have the blue stripes, but if you wear all black, or if you don't want stripes on your spec ops armour at all, fear not because I have catered for you as well!

Included in the files is a second \texture\ directory named "\texture_nostripes\". If you wish to remove the stripes from specops armour, then simply rename the existing "\texture\" directory (found within the newly created \mods\sandtrooper\battle\ folder) with the second (making sure \texture_nostripes\ is now named \texture\).

Additionaly, if you like the newer stripes but wish to keep them black rather than blue, then I have even catered for you! Like above, simply swap the \pal\ directory with the \pal_blackstripes\ directory. To change the stripe colour entirely, simply edit the PAL file within the \pal\ directory and change the blue box to whatever colour you wish.

The armour is not the only thing I have improved here as I have also included an improved texture for the sandtrooper backpack. The new texture is nearer a true black, much like Caveman's trueblack collections.

This mod works especialy well with my Holster mod using Caveman's TrueBlack variant.

Fantastic work, but I have a question.

Why are the Stormtrooper arms and shoulders smaller? On a male toon it looks like they have female arms.

I've not noticed that personaly. The models themselves are completly un-touched, so the male biceps and triceps should be identical to that of other stormtrooper armour unless I've accidently swapped them round - I'll check into it.

Thats why this is a beta release and not a full release Smiley

Can you get a screenshot for comparison for me just in case I am unable to re-create what you're talking about please.

I was slightly incorrect about what i said about the bracers, it's just the biceps. You can see in the screenshot that they are smaller, they look as if their the female ones.
If you can fix this it will be greatly appreciated, as this is a brilliant mod.


For your next mod you should mod the Clone/Scout Trooper Belt Thermal Detonator onto the Stormtrooper belt, much needed for us Troopers out there!   Wink

As I said, thats why this is a beta Wink

I'll completly re-build the arms today to fix that.

Gees I was looking into doing that in my next pass, just haven't gotten round to it yet. This pass was more about getting a sandtrooper (with specops) working and the sandtrooper belt didn't include the grenade pouch presumably because of the packs.

Ok I've now completly re-built all of the male armour pieces just to make sure nothing is missed this time. It should now be showing all the correct parts. The latest version is attatched to the first post of this thread. Make sure you remove the old files first before installing the new ones.

Going to be keeping this in beta until the end of September and then turn it into a full release assuming there are no more bugs that crop up, so please keep me informed if you happen to find something wrong.

Once I've pushed this to live I'll be working in a version 2 of the mod which will include a full set of scout trooper and assault armour modded in a similar fashion. Version 3 will include additional things like a modded belt with a thermal detonator pouch, if possible.
