Would it be possible to replace the lightsaber with a real sword? I mean it would be pretty cool to be swinging a longsword or something around in this game. Maybe a model replacement in multiplayer?
Would it be possible also to add a scabbard to the player model so instead of turning the saber off, you simply sheath the sword? I know nothing at all about modding this game. This was simply an idea I thought of and thought would be really, really cool if some one made it a reality.
Please no flames, valid comments only if you will.
I agree with you. That would be insane and would refelect the old republic SITHs with their dark force swords. :rock:
This would take alot of effort in re-animating the characters in the game for resheathing swords.
Really cool idea though. Hopefully somebody could do it.
Lol actually I'm making a gunblade - from Final fantasy 8...I'm all but done except for one JA problem.... Sheathing the sword would take way too much work...but you'll be able to run around with a sword :) I'm hopefully gonna release more Final Fantasy stuff, I may do Seifer's gunblade next followed by the oh so pretty blue Lionheart :)

Damn WadeV1589, YOU gotta teach me how to make saber hilts like that its EXACTLY like the real thing in FFVIII.
First you get GMAX or 3DS Max (GMAX is free BTW). Then you get plenty of reference shots, finally you learn to draw and create textures on PC's :P For instance for this gun I had to draw this.... Uses vectors in PSP, easier than I thought it would be TBH...would have been impossible without a reference image though.

just use in Gmax the line tool then extrude it?
I use 3DS Max, blade was a plane (mesh) which i shaped...you can use curves etc but for low poly modelling you should start with a box or plane and extrude etc.
I'm too cool to Post

NICE, I also like the idea, i was thinking about it yesterday, lol. it would require a lot of reanimating tho and would be pretty tough to do.
