Decided to try and pick up modeling again after sort of quitting on it my first go and I figured a cool weapon to make would be the darksaber from the clone wars tv show, seen here: YouTube - Obi-Wan Kenobi vs Pre Vizsla
Not sure how I'll go about making the effect for the blade.....anyone got any ideas???
You could do the effect with some shader work, or just use a mod that has black sabers with white outline on it.
I would suggest the shader work, as that way it is specific to this saber and does not overwrite any other saber colors.
I once requested this. Here's the thread, their ideas might help you:
you should make that hilt a separate saber hilt.
the shader stuff will work out great
Eventually I could help you with the blade effect I could make a blade effect for this saber it will a. be quite accurate and b. it will not replace other blade colors c. the blade will disapear when disabling the saber if you model the blade in it wont ;)
If you want me to work at that pm me it wont take more than a few mins ;) atm I'm to busy with school for bigger things that'S the reason why I'm a little inactive :(
Alright, I'll pack up a pk3 and send it to ashura, probably later tonight. I know how it is with school stuff, I just had orientation yesterday from 7:45 to 4:00 :0
