About the mod
Back in March of 2013, Riot was going to release a skin called “Jade Empress Karma” themed around the lunar revel. Instead, they opted to release Order of the Lotus Karma (along with her VGU), and scrapped the lunar theme. If you check inside of Karma’s bins, you’ll still see emitters with the name “Lunar” strewn about, despite not being fully programmed particles. There are also videos on YouTube of the unfinished particles they were testing for Jade Empress Karma before they scrapped it. While I doubt we’ll ever see the lunar revel theme manifest in any future skins released for Karma, I felt inspired to try making my own version of the color scheme/artwork/particles I would’ve liked to see for a lunar revel oriented skin. I chose to make only minor edits to the particles, as Karma’s recent VFX update brought a beautiful color scheme to Traditional Karma that I didn’t think needed much changing. Unfortunately I lack 3D modeling skills, and thus couldn’t make my own model for Karma, so I chose Traditional Karma to base the edits on, as it’s the closest skin to the vibe I would have gone for. This is also the first skin I’ve ever made major splash art/HUD changes to before. Hope you enjoy!
- As always, credit to Beardilocks for putting in astronomically more effort into Karma than anyone else ever has.
Additional installation instructions
There are two different versions of this skin: Lunar Shaman Karma with Cape, and Lunar Shaman Karma without Cape. The names are self explanatory, but for some context, when Riot first VGUd Karma, they originally planned on making all of her pre-rework skins use capes, but quickly changed their mind when they saw backlash, and recreated them (specifically, Sakura and Traditional) as dress skins. Lunar Shaman Karma with Cape uses the Traditional Karma model Riot initially released on the PBE, where her outfit matched the style of her new base appearance, whereas Lunar Shaman Karma without Cape uses Karma’s current model. Both are shown in the video; feel free to choose whichever you prefer, but they obviously can’t be ran at the same time.
No, I can’t bring the fans from current Traditional Karma and put them on the cape form, because it requires UV editing, something I’m unfamiliar with.
