Hey-ho, im just writing 'cause im interested if there is a way to change the Lightning properties, Eg. make wider lightning, longer lightning, etc.... I do NOT need to know how to change lightning's color. Just how to change its properties, and oh yea- i Heard there are special files for that in effects folder, but it was too complicated to understand really (Maybe it IS the solution to my request), so please if u know the meanings of commands in those files, please post them all here Cheers

To make the lighting bigger select the light, then press n, after that a small window comes upp. write in key: light Write in Value: 3000 or bigger number(s).

(ammount bigger than 3000 is recomended if you want a bigger lightning.) :)

He said "lightning", not "lighting"... that made me chuckle. Try the following links (all on JK3files.com) and the pics to see if they are what you want. Keep in mind that changing the Force Lightning effects changes some of the environment's lightning too (I used to have a "Matrix" lightning mod which made the lightning on T1_Rail look like scrolling Matrix symbols - very cool) Super Lightning, Jedi Knight 3 Downloads, Jedi Knight 3 Mini-Mods New Lightning Effects, Jedi Knight 3 Downloads, Jedi Knight 3 Mini-Mods Dark Lightning v2.0, Jedi Knight 3 Downloads, Jedi Knight 3 Mini-Mods If you want to look for alternate lightning solutions, try looking at the lightning mods that Tobe made.

Anything short of coding your own multiplayer mod won't change the actual radius of the lightning trace, but you can change the .efx files to make it look like you're discharging more. (assets1.pk3/efx/force/lightningWide.efx iirc)

Yea, thats what i meant- i want to learn How to make lightning effect, and YES i looked into the efx file, and i dont understand what the hell it is all about- and yea, well i dont really care if in SP it just seems to be wider, or it really does get ppl who stand much further than before- as long as it looks different, i dont care So, what do things like, say, intensity, or start mean, or count? Oh, it would be awesome, if u could give the hole list of effect properties and meanings, thank u very much! PS. Eeeeeeer, u said Matrix Lightning? :o Where did u get it? I want it too :p

You'll need to edit the effect to do that.

Here's a WIP tutorial from ages ago, but it should help you get on your feet with effects:

For a wider arc I think when I open the arms up in the animation that will work. I'm making the SA two handed lightning now and I think that will affect the lightning's arc.
