While I was making the SW_MOD, I asked RaptorRed to help convert some Star Wars weapon models from JK3:JA into AvP2 and she did. During this time, I was unsure of which lightsaber to include into the mod since I liked so many and I could only include one into the client side mod. Therefore I got her to convert the two most recognizable lightsaber models for me. She converted Luke Skywalker's lightsaber and another lightsaber with a miscellaneous hilt that looked like anyone could use. Since Luke's saber only matched Luke's and Obi-Wan's profiles, I decided to use the other weapon model. My original plan was to make a few skins of each of the sabers in a pack about half the size as this one. However, after displaying the first lightsaber model to the public, a high demand of interest came pouring in. Upon notice, I immediately went back to RaptorRed asking her to convert two more lightsaber models into AvP2. These last two models were chosen for more variety for the Sith characters and neutral sides. With these final four lightsaber models, I then proceeded to skin the saber blades to various colors for even more variety. Thus offering more customization of the Star Wars Mod during gameplay.

You'll notice there are many similar names for all of the rez files. Each rez file contains a different number and color to distinguish among each other. Rez files with the same number (for example "1") will use the same hilt or handle of the lightsaber and the colors (for example "BLUE") indicate the color of the lightsaber blade. These various skins and models are designed to overwrite the SW_MOD default lightsaber model in 3rd person view. None of these packs include the lightsaber sounds found in the Star Wars Mod because these packs should be running with the Star Wars Mod simultaneously to hear the sounds. Although these packs do not require the mod to work, I suggest running the mod and using these lightsaber packs to somewhat customize the mod to your liking.

You have a total of 27 Lightsaber packs to play around with. Enjoy!

LIst Of Lightsaber Packs:

0) SABER1_BLUE.rez (Not included - This is the default lightsaber used in the SW_MOD)

Recommendations:

The most important thing I can recommend first is to hook up your AvP2 game with the Third Person View Mod found here: http://www.planetavp.com/mods/modotw/third-personview/

This mod is necessary to use if you want to see your own character swinging around a lightsaber since it isn't viewable in first person view. Otherwise, you will only be able to see other players using the lightsaber.

The saber1 lightsabers use the default hilt aka handle as in the SW_MOD, and are mostly the neutral choices from the packs. The saber2 lightsabers use a somewhat similar hilt as the saber1 lightsabers, yet have a less fancy look. Saber3 lightsabers are dark and are probably the best choice for Sith and red blades. And last but not least are the saber4 blades, which use Luke Skywalker's hilt.

I personally suggest picking your favorite character in the Star Wars Mod, meaning the one you will play as mostly. Then try to assign the lightsaber that matches your character's lightsaber from the movies. For example: The Sith characters get red sabers (or blue for Anakin), Mace Windu gets a purple saber, Obi-Wan gets a blue saber, Luke Skywalker gets a green saber (saber4_green), etc.

Then again you can pick whichever one you want. Its up to you. Choose wisely!

2) General Info:

Zip Contents: 27 rez files in the "Lightsabers" folder, Readme (What you are reading)

Version: 1.0
New Textures: Yes
New sounds: No

Known Bugs: None at all. However, the lightsabers don't appear in first person view, just third person view. This is not a bug, its just too complicated to get a first person view saber model into the game; especially since I don't make models for AvP2. Solution? Get your AvP2 game hooked up with the third person view mod found here: http://www.planetavp.com/mods/modotw/third-personview/
I highly recommend installing this mod. See the recommendations below for more info.

(If you find any, please tell me)

A) Extract or copy all the .rez files from the Lightsaber folder in the .zip and place them in your custom folder in your Alien Versus Predator 2 directory. If you dont have a custom folder, you must make one. *Hold mouse>Right click>New>Folder*                                                                                                                                                                                                             

B) Start AVP2.exe. Click "OPTIONS" on the launcher window with the picture of the queen.

C) To run the Star Wars Mod and one of the Lightsaber Packs, type the following in the command line exactly as follows: -rez custom/SW_MOD.rez -rez custom/SABER4_GREEN.rez

**MAKE SURE THAT THE "-rez custom/SW_MOD.rez" IS ENTERED BEFORE "-rez custom/SABER4_GREEN.rez" OR YOU WILL NOT SEE ANY CHANGES TO THE DEFAULT LIGHTSABER!!!!**

**REMEMBER TO CHANGE THE WORD AND NUMBER IN "SABER4_GREEN" IN -rez custom/SABER4_GREEN.rez TO THE CORRECT REZ FILE/LIGHTSABER PACK YOU WANT TO USE!!!!**

D) Check "Always specify these command-line parameters."

E) You will know if you installed the lightsaber pack correctly if you see a new lightsaber during gameplay.

A) Whatever site is hosting this add-on, thank you.

B) Big special thanks to RaptorRed for converting 4 lightsaber models from JK3 into AvP2 upon request. I wouldn't be able to make any of the saber skins and release this pack if it wasn't for her.

C) Thanks to all the people who give me feedback and download my files. : )

Let me know what you think. Drop by my site and leave feedback: http://kingskins.avp2mods.com/
Also feel welcome to give me skin and/or sound pack ideas. You never know, I might make them.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
9) Future Releases:

A) WorldTexture Add-On for the SW_MOD. This add-on skins the default AvP2 multiplayer maps and adds a few new things to the maps. This add-on was not included in the Star Wars Mod since it only supports multiplayer and not singleplayer. This add-on is a mod itself, and will take some time to finish.

B) SW_MOD 2.0? Pending release. Depends on whether or not the AvP2 engine can handle new gameplay changes as in the Star Wars Movies. Version 2 would basically be Version 1, but with gameplay changes.
