Great modeling job, bro. =]

To skin it, I think I need the Unwrapped UVW file.

Looks like this: http://www.thejediacademy.net/~virtue/tutorials/hilts/skin001.jpg

Either that, or I'm missing a different way to do this (still somewhat new to lightsaber skinning)

Sorry if this was stupid, but I woke up like, 10 minutes ago so I'm a little loopy.

[Edit] And yes, feel free to release the hilt along with it.

Dont worry, I'll pm you everything you'll need. Right now Im fiddling with the maps. They're more than ugly. Its probably the worst unwrapping I've ever done. I may need to make the rod and mirror seperate from the hilt. I wish I could describe how ugly this is. lol. But, good news: I have an idea how to fix it. If I keep going like this, we can have it done within the next day or two.

Sounds good man.

Well, seeing as how the model is a little complicated, it'll probably end up being messy. =P

I doubt it, at least for any time in the foreseeable future. Have you any idea how big laser cutters powerful enough to cut through a person would have to be?

That's originally what I was thinking. With a power cell strong enough to make a beam of light pass through solid matter like a hot knife through butter, it can easily be done.

At the moment, our laser beams can only cut through small pieces of metal (i.e. Aluminum, steel "paper length" sheets).

I'd say give it about 5 years. Then we might have the technology.

But who knows? We may have it now, but we, as the general public, have no knowledge of it. =]

Well, I think we'd be more likely to be able to make something like this before an actual lightsaber. Thats what I like about this project. Its close to being real, but fits in with the Star Wars world easily. Im sending you a pm with the needed files to skin this puppy. I did my best with the maps. {EDIT} PM sent.

Here's a little update:

I finished the skinning, and now doctor has to finish up testing a few things and respond back to me with a few changes (if any). Expect a picture sometime soon.

Ok, so this is what we have so far.

I dont think the final product will be much different from this. Just noticed the far right picture shows the bottom cut off. Thanks modview. Its not really like that.

Our baby has my skin and your structure. =]

Fantastic modeling work, doctor.

Works like a dream in-game.
