Hehe, here's what I've been working on recently.
This was created almost completely from scratch.
Model by me, rigging by me, texturing by me, animating by me, tagging by me.
Yes, it has actual lightsaber sounds. Sounds I downloaded and tagged.
Will release to HaloFiles within the week.
the hilt looks great, but the blade needs particle effects, and I'd suggest custom animations, the energy sword, acts a little diffrent than the lightsaber does, but I'm not to good with animations, so I personaly would mess with it.
Awesome, but please find someone to skin it. :D
@rabt: Those ARE custom animations o_O
@noobst3r: but its already textured, albeit terribly :P
oh, just kinda looked like the energy sword abit.
One more teaser pic:
Pretty cool stuff...I suggest making the right hand grip the hilt more realistically, though...as it is, it looks like he's just kinda half-assedly holding it, not the kind of grip you would have on something that you cut off heads with. Just my two cents. ;)
well with the lightsaber, its not a aggressive art, its more an elegant one, so the loose grip, I kinda thinks works, also, is it on when on the ground or does it come on when you pick it up, becuase that would be awsome.
I know lightsabers aren't all about the G.I. Joe kung-fu grip, but the way it looks in that screenshot, if the guy actually swung it like that, it would just fly out of his hand. =p
I see what you mean...
Lazy fingertip positioning FTW?
Also, rabt, it is "on" when you see it on the floor, but when you pick it up, the ready animation still shows it being switched on :P
