Looks like a good start! I'm curious, why is it called "Search for Obi-Wan"? Is it set during the Dark Times, and Vader is trying to hunt down his old master? :o
That would be pretty awesome if you did a map pack or series like that...

Not really, unless you want your 'low-rez' mesh to have the same number of polygons as the high-res one. If you don't care about saving engine resources then you can just enter the object's main mesh in the lowrez mesh field in its odf. (Be warned, this can do some weird stuff if the thing you're modifying is a unit, since those have different lowrez animations at longer distances, which do not always get along with high rez meshes)

In the .odf file add the line GeometryLowRes ="put your lowres file name here". As said before, the low-res model shoulf be placed next to the high-res one.
EDIT: Forget what I said.

Units use the GeometryLowRes parameter in the ODF file to reference the lowres mesh, weapons use the HighResGeometry parameter in the ODF file to reference the first-person mesh, and all other types of mesh use the "_lowrez" naming format in the MSH file to reference the lowres mesh.

Wait, by "transparent" do you mean completely transparent or just partially? If partially, could you post your sky file?

You'll need to include a low-rez geometry in the model itself. Which means you'll need to get ZE Tools working...
