That looks interesting. What's the story on The Roach (can't find out much at all beyond it being a comic book character)?

Right - so what are his superpowers?

I see there are some comic book covers featuring the Roach from the Bangkok Comic Con some years back.

I did RP of him on Twitter but I made them up. Basically, proportionate powers of a cockroach.

Have a look at https://toysrevil.blogspot.com/2014/06/ ... -2014.html.

I think there's a discussion about The Roach's superpowers on DeviantArt.

That's a different Roach, the one at your link is much more insect-like.

Livejournal is doing an update this week, so a lot of my screenshots are gonna be on the blink... hopefully only for this week.

Working a new skin with elements from old ones. Something patriotic, combining a Captain America skin with more standard Liandri content.

As diversity is our strength, I'm currently fielding and testing lots of faces; using a basic Cap mask transparency superimposed over them.

Sentinels, mutant hunting killing robots from the X-men series.

Not entirely satisfied with the face.

Need to add the purple sheathing to the legs still.

I updated the Dark Hero skin recently...
Image
...it was bugging me the Yellow team color had as much red and it did yellow, so I altered the tint to the red portions.

But then it occurred to me I could use the same process to team color the entire thing into its own skin. Used the same transparencies I used to fix that team color for a new set, but it didn't make sense to leave the helmet as the red from the actual Iron Man head piece didn't work well for team colors.

I opted with keeping the faceplate from the helmet and using it as a mask instead.

Tentatively called "Stark Guard" but may switch that to "Clan Stark".

I still need to lighten the hands.

I did not, but I suppose I might as well.

Lazy Skaarj skinning.

Take a Skaarj texture, place whited out portions on it.
Image Image

Place edited portion over an already colored texture, use transparencies.
Image Image

Which provides perfectly aligned colored textures.
Image Image Image

Image Image Image

Now I do these for the UTDMS...

I had free time, so I decided to fulfil your wish. Took me around 4 hours for this.

Still requires some more testing. The other one beside me is a bot.
...but it wouldn't take much to setup .utx & .int files for the Skaarj PlayerModel.

Couldn't sleep (in that I went to bed early and then woke up too early but couldn't get back to sleep) so I went poking through the UT stuff I've never used.

Found a GmanFBI model that was advertised as having all team colors but actually had none. It had the correct setup for team colors but all the textures for those colors were identical.

Made a transparency for the handkerchief, buttons, and tie clip to remain the same while I did a basic tint edit and upped saturation to make actual team colors.

Didn't make new files for this, copied over the existing texture pack. May go back and correct that later, along with something to counter the texture reversal (in-game the handkerchief is on the wrong side) but I'm less motivated as this is one of those models that doesn't hold weapons properly.
