Hi, I've looked on a google, a few modelling forums, but I didn't find anything, so I'm afraid I will have to ask here... Well, I'm looking for a lightsaber hilt of Ven Zallow. I even think it's weird nobody asked for it here ^^ SWTOR Ven Zallow's Lightsaber by *RisiaVyle on deviantART Here's a good screen, well, the picture here is a screen from a model, and I asked the author if he could send it, but he's releasing only screens.. ;S
If a saber could look like the one from this picture, it would be really awesome. I would like to build this saber in an RP clan, in which I play for 2 years. On my side, it wouldn't go anywhere else.
I made this one ages ago for the tales of the sithlords TC here , have fun : Download TOR_saber.pk3 from Sendspace.com - send big files the easy way it's not perfect but I had only 1 picture of it at the time i made it ;)
here's a pic of the saber : http://www.moddb.com/mods/tales-of-the-sith-lords/images/lightsaber-hilt3#imagebox
ha i remember requesting that saber. interesting name, Ven Zallow. ashura, if u decide to ever put it on JK3Files (if it isn't already), at least you now have a name.
I guess i'll change the name in the sab file then my bro came up with soul guard as name :lulz:
Wow, thanks, I have to admit I didn't look that far ^^ Model is really awesome, it's just like the saber itself, but I have one question/request. Is it possible to retexture/remake the shaders to make it look more like this one on the screen in my 1st post, or the one here, and less glowing? http://www.ossus.pl/images/9/9f/RekojescJedi.jpg (I have some more, so if it's needed, I can post a lot) I've tried it myself, but my poor attempts of recoloring were... well, let's avoid speaking about it. xD Putting other textures also failed, because they... weren't matching. Though I spent few hours, the effect is just horrible
Well, if it's possible for someone to spend time over it, I would be really grateful :P And I'm already for a model itself, it's... awesome milestone.
Regards and thx!
I'll think about it but I have to many WIP things on my back atm so it might take a while
If anybody else is willing to pick this up then feel free to reskin my saber
Well, I can only wait :) As for the Jedi, his name was revealed when mentioning one book, probably "Deceived" by Paul S. Kemp, but I can't be sure ;) No matter what, his saber rox :P
Okay, I've done some researches and collected quite many screenshots etc.
At first, screenshots I made from HD (yeah, veeery HD... :P) version of the "Deceived". http://ifotos.pl/img/ven1_wnppxp.jpg http://ifotos.pl/img/ven2_wnppxh.jpg http://ifotos.pl/img/ven3_wnppxr.jpg http://ifotos.pl/img/ven4_wnppxw.jpg http://ifotos.pl/img/ven5_wnppxn.jpg http://ifotos.pl/img/ven6_wnppxe.jpg As you can see, most parts of the saber aren't purely white, they are quite originally colored.
And, the other "versions", more based on the "pure white": http://www.digitalsomething.com/media/gallery/CA_20081226_JediLightsaber_full.jpg SWTOR Ven Zallow's Lightsaber by *RisiaVyle on deviantART
Well, I think these screens/pictures can give some... advices? While the promotional picture can look more like a project (guess it was even meant for it :P), the second one based on white color is giving very good example of the metal's glow. Pictures from the trailer? color is quite different, and so - the glowing of the material. Screens are quite good I think, if someone would want more - I can give reallly more.
Honestly, I take both alternatives as suiting, though I don't know if taking "a bit from each one" would give a good effect. I can predict that properly done, both would look good in JK3. As I've said, I tried retexturing myself, but the effect is really horrible, and shaders are black Sith magic to me xP. But I hope that these screens can at least make a good inspiration... and as for the shaders, maybe those used in Revan Dark Star Wars hilts, or Kahn D'Halaine's projects can be an example of exact types to be used?
I think that's all I can suggest. It might be lame, but I'm just intrested in good resembling of a "source" saber :P
EDIT: Damn it, what an idiot I am! I forgot to delete the post below.... ;F
I had originally planned on making this as a side project, and had portions of it complete. Just need to find where I put the max file.
The model itself IMHO is exactly the saber from "Deceived", but for making an exact replica, it would need new textures.
