    This mod replaces the Invictus commander with the commander seen in the Kickstarter trailer.
    I choose Invictus because everyone should have him in the armory.
    The commander still has the Invictus name in the armory and lobby, but al art assets have been replaced and he will show up ingame as Kickstarter Commander.

    This mod has a server and client part, it needs a client part because of the icons.
    Server mod name: Kickstarter Commander
    Client mod name: Kickstarter Commander Icons

    I always wanted to use the Kickstarter commander but Uber never released the model.
    I used stills from the trailer to recreate the model and I'm pretty damn proud of the result.

    You wouldn't believe how much I enjoyed making this.
    If you are at all curious PLEASE try modeling, it is so much fun.
    I'm working on a tutorial for absolute beginners, which is where I started, massive thanks again to @zx0 for helping me learn how to do this stuff.

    I'd like to see the arms modified a bit to be consistent with those of the other commanders.

    I considered doing that, but I like the design from the trailer way more.

    I eh, meh, getting the original model now is somehow disappointing :(
    Thanks though, I might put him ingame at some point.
    I am surprised though at how close I got in recreating him.

    Any other Uber models you might have that are not in the game ?

    Is it okay if I use your model for a new unit in GAT?

    You will of course be credited.

    I have a few old models, but most of them are meh.

    No problem go ahead.
    It was really fun seeing my model show up in other people's screenshots :D

    Do you by any chance have the model from the bots/dox in the kickstarter trailer ? I think I might model those next, but I'm not doing that if I can get my hands on the original model.
    Any models used in the trailer would be welcome.

    If you're still around, you might want to update this mod to make the com a custom commander rather than one that replaces Invictus. Take a look at the base legion commander and the other legion commanders for some idea of what needs to be done.

    Version 0.003 released.
    New feature: texture works again.
    Moved model and texture to client side.
    No longer directly shadow Invictus model and texture files but use different nameset so as to avoid a texture issue.
    Thanks to [ICARUS] Dissonant, Lula Mae, and Quitch for help with the fix.
