Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Here's my version of the notorious bounty hunter that captured Han Solo and was left to rot in the Sarlacc (gimme a break, no one believes that, do you? :D).

He comes complete with Mandalorian Battle Armour including the famous jetpack.

Helmet, shoulderpatches and jetpack are accessories made of glasses meshes, you will find them under "glasses" if you want to use them otherwise.

The excellent textures are from Thomas H. Sorensen (visit his webpage on www.dtp2maz.dk), I am very glad that he agreed for me to use them. Not only did he agree, he also provided me with a higher-resolution version for use in Bodyshop. Thank you very much, Tom! I owe you one!

I had to rework the textures for use in Bodyshop and that was quite some work to do. Had to start over three times, since I was not satisfied with the result. But it was well worth it. Or so I think...

The accessory-meshes are all very low poly.

Hav fun! :wave:

No, that's okay with me. But:

Are recolors possible for accessories?

And:

Jango Fetts armor is more complex than Boba's (it has more armour-parts, for example shin- and arm-guards), so it's not simple a matter of recoloring this one...

Very nice Wookiee you did, by the way...

Yes you can recolor accessories, I have already started and as for the shin guards I was going to use the superhero body from the top of the law enforcement career. That brings me to my finale Q is that a no for "no" :naughty: or a no for "yes" :nod: ? I think how you worded it it looked like a yes but I just want to make sure. :salute:

The complete answer would have been "No, I don't mind"... :D

I tried the superhero outfit but did not use it, as the "diamonds" on arms and legs did not look good with the textures.

happy simming,
Xanathon

Thanks!

The actor who plays Jango in ep1 sucks! he snobbed my friend and i when i went to get his autograph. he was talkin so some other person and just signed it. i was like well you.

But the dude who played boba is ep1 he was cool, he wanted to trade shirts with my friend, my friend has a Blink 182 shirt.

back on topic: My Q-xpress installer gives me a runtime error 5 when i try to install this. looks like i have to do it the long way
