This is rather a unique hilt as far as the extra design it has. The extra fins on this saber look like the bones of a dragon wing (in shape) and the overall design is very elaborate. I would say this is well suited to dark Jedi because of the black style and 'bits that stick out' - it has that feel to it.
The design and skinning is tidy and well done. The reason the fins look this smooth is a relative high poly count, it is still under 2,000 but for a hilt that is relatively small in game I'd say that is a lot. Those of you who take your hilts seriously however, I'm sure the higher poly count will please.
Oh almost forgot, this pack has 4 color variations of the hilt just for that extra bit of customisation...I don't fully understand why this is in 4 separate PK3's however.
******************* *JKII MODIFICATION* ******************* A Lord Hatrus PRODUCTION... .:RoAR Clan Sabers v1.1 & 1.3:. from Lord Hatrus' Private Collection =============================================== BY: LORD DARTH HATRUS, [RoAR] MODELER & SKINNER =============================================== Author: -=Lord*Hatrus=- AKA Lord Hatrus Author's Email: is now firstname.lastname@example.org, not email@example.com anymore :( Beta Testers: [RoAR]SERVER[ADMIN] (Clan Leader), and myself Type: MP Custom Saber Addon Works on Academy MOD!! Build Time: 10 hours due to polycount complications. Polycount: 1922 Triangles: 1797 Idea by: Lord Hatrus Built for: Rebels of Another Realm Clan RoAR Website: www.roarrebels.tk RoAR JK2 Server: 22.214.171.124 Origional Model: Kyle Saber Base Model Specs: Built for Rebels of Another Realm Clan as the first of their clan's saber hilts. Notes: I believe this was/is going to be currently the largest poly saber to date I may be wrong. The saber was origionally at 7085 polys, but was reduced considerably to only 1922 polys. The saber line will be increased to nearly 10,000 polys in the near future. Comments: As usual I didnt use anything but MS3D to model, dont really need anything else. Also used Photoshop 126.96.36.199, MD3Viewer from the Raven Tools. Tested on a 1.4 Dedicated Server and on a 1.4 Dedicated Academy Mod Server (lates mod release), and seems to work fine. I intend to stretch the boundries of concievable and logical space to bring the most intricate and unique art I can think of. Description: You might remember me from around the release of JK2. I made several hit saber hilts that got used in the JediMod. Also released a saber called the Black Widow that is still my favorite, lol. I pulled out JK2 the other day and decided I'd just play the SP. Of course I just had to play a MP game or two...or three...or...just to say I got hooked on it again. I'm back currently doing the same vision of saber hilts I did in the past. Unique, strange, somehow balanced, and not like anyother sabers out there. I decided I'd need a "client" to give me "requests" si I didnt have to sit and think for ideas to pop up in ym little head. This saber was "the origional" Hatrus Saber I first designed. It was never released due to the poly count and then I wasnt as experienced as I am now. I rebuilt it from scratch off of a pic I had off of it. The tentacles hanging down at the top are made of some unbreakable metal...like durasteel so thats why they dont beatk in battle. The array is what I call a peacock tail, like the big fat bird with the purty feathers.
