Hi,guys.I am new to modding,skinning and mapping.Currently I am asking for a little bit of help.I have a lightsaber model that i have created.I made the .pk3 file including everything and the put it in the base folder.When I started SP and came to the saber selection screen,my lightsaber hilt's name was appearing but the saber was not appearing below it.I started the game and i had the hilt.The problem is that the hilt does not show up when i select it from the saber selection menu.The rest is all fine.I cant figure out how to fix this.As this is officialy my first mod,i need some help!

Hope u ppl respond to my sinking ship, With Regards, ~Darth MAK~

Have you looked in the info/tutorials guide here? Inyri made a tutorial on how to get a saber model ingame, so you should take a look at that. Also, the incredibly large text is really unnecessary...

Looks like you're missing your .skin file... Should be with your .glm and .jpg.

I've given no further hints because the only issue I could think of is the one I already said.

[EDIT] Although... I've noticed that your saber's model folder is "saber_dreborn" while your .sab file is "saber_reborn". Might have nothing to do with it, been a while since I dealt with sabers. But I think my first suggestion is far more likely. I know I personally have never gotten any sabers to show without a .skin file, but then every time I have done something like that it was for sabers I personally created from scratch.

Alternate answer: You dun goof'd!

Ryojin;5371359I've noticed that your saber's model folder is "saber_dreborn" while your .sab file is "saber_reborn".

That defiantly wouldn't matter.

Never heard of a .sab working in game but not in the menu...no idea what it actually is.
