The first version of Rebellion Remastered Mod updates the graphics of all 60 characters. Their encyclopedia entries have been updated with a background image specific to them (the image that best describes role or their home planet). Some characters where incorrectly depicted in the original game, adjustment were made to bring them closer to the image Star Wars defined for them in the Canon and in the Legends lore.
Adar Tallon was reimagined based on Star Wars Legends comic book illustrations
Bren Derlin was updated based on his appearance in The Empire Strikes Back
Borsk Fey'lya was reimagined based on Star Wars Legends comic book illustrations
Garm Bel Iblis was reimagined based on Star Wars Legends comic book illustrations
Mazer Rackus was updated to look more like the new Twi'lek physique that series and comics introduced in the early 2000's. Ma'w'shiye was a humanoid from Kintan. But a southern Nikto with no horns. In Rebellion, he was depicted as a northern Nikto
Judder Page was recreated using screengrabs from Return of The Jedi where Page is visible in the background
Vanden Willard was updated based on the actor who played the character in New Hope. In Rebellion, he was confused for Bob Hudsol
Brandei was updated based on his appearance in The Empire Strikes Back
Bevel Lemelisk was reimagined based on Star Wars Legends comic book illustrations
Niles Ferrier was reimagined based on Star Wars Legends comic book illustrations
The Remastered mod is not intended to replace the old characters (or anything else) with new ones. Many of us have grown to love and get used to the original characters, who have been a bit lost in time with the new Star Wars series. A significant number of them have not appeared in the "canon" Star Wars content to date, they are still only known from "Legends" (or as we used to call it: Expanded Universe). The graphics in the original Star Wars Rebellion were photo revisions and paintings, which made the visual world of the entire game feel consistent. In the new mod, the focus was more on the photographic quality.
HOW TO INSTALL
I. Stand alone
Copy-paste the files in this zip files into your game folder and overwrite the original files there. That's it! Be aware that this will overwrite any visual update you had before (including troop, character, ship and other graphical updates. If you have other mods installed jump to the "II. 25th anniversary patch" method or perform a clean install of the game, apply Remastered and then add everything else. This mod only changes DLL files with visual assets in them).
Additionally, you could make a backup copy of the DLL files and the EDATA files the mod replaces. Otherwise you will need to reinstall the game to remove the new elements.
