What if someone modelled it as a complete weapon (hilt and blade) and then just used effects to get the general look? That seems like the best way if the blade shape must absolutly be maintained. Then someone could make a matching hilt model for use as a regular lightsaber.

That should be fine with the sword version since you'd 'put it away' to use guns and such, but would keep it ignited while fighting.

I like that idea, i dont think i would use that hilt for anything other than that so, it sounds actually quite nice

I would personally like to see the hilt and a blade to go with it. That's what I'm requesting, sorry if I never made that clear :S

I'm not sure how feesable that is then. Not saying it's impossible, but no one has done that before. Saber blades are 1 dimensional jpgs so making it look like real blade doesn't seem likely. It may be possible to make a model for the blade that the saber will call when it is active. I've seen post covering this and coders say it can be done, but I've never seen someone actually do it.

If someone did that you would run into a couple of problems: 1. It wouldn't work for sp at all. 2. It wouldn't work in conjuction with any other mp mods, because it has it's own coding.

So you'd have to play base mp with only this mod.

Why don't you abuse bladeEffect like I did with the whitesaber?

ok.. id love to take on this request.. and ill look at the more recent episodes of clone wars to try and capture some nice ref. pics... but even after reading this thread (twice lol) i somehow still have questions that id like cleared up first... so, the blade is a bit shorter, and its maybe tapered at the end like a sword? and the hilt is considerably longer than a typical saber? right so far? because i can taper a blade, and make any hilt u can imagine, but is there a special glow effect too? because the tapered end and special glow effect i can achieve without a bladeEffect.. but i just want to make sure thats what im going for.. and the white glow with the black center wont be a problem either.. so maybe a bit more clarification from someone, and a couple ref pics im about to snap, would help immensely. then id be glad to take this on

EDIT: ok i see this darksaber.jpg so taper the end like that?

Not really. It's not a sword, so using Ragnos' staff-sword thing wouldn't work.
