This mod includes the models and skins of over 40 sabers. The author's intention was to make these hilts completely mod compatible. Smoke Ring Halo claims that all 43 of these hilts have been tested with ForceMod and will work with some versions of JediMod/OmniMod (though he isn't sure about all versions).
Smoke Ring Halo hasn't given all the author's credit simply because there would be too many to list. Suffice it to say that the author here is not taking credit from the original creators, he is simply improving upon their already great work. :)
TRUESABERS 1.0 (for use with FORCEMOD) by: Smoke Ring Halo DO OR DO NOT: The reason for this mod was that I had noticed that while some saber mods claimed to be mod compatible - they were not 100% mod compatible. Meaning that while the model itself would indeed show in the game, its skin would not. To accomplish this, I had to rework almost all of the various authors files down to the .MD3's to create new .GLMs for the hilts. I selected hilts based upon historical accuracy (according to the Star Wars universe) You are sure to see a difference in your hilts when using this mod. THE MODS: TRUESABERS is intended to be used with "FORCEMOD" (The only mod so far to utilize jetpack restriction to "FETT ONLY MODELS") It is not compatible with PROMOD since it doesn't utilize the TCK saber color mod and has done away with the hilt select menu. It will work with JediMod/Omnimod - however, since so many versions exist it has not been tested with all versions of JediMod/Omnimod. YOU MUST UNLEARN WHAT YOU HAVE LEARNED: TrueSabers was actually made quite some time ago, and never released. It includes 43 saber hilts and is the only saber hilt collection that I know of to be 100% mod compatible with model skins .For the hilt set to match, "in-game" icons were removed due to the very few hilts that included them. This may be addessed in later versions. However, the new "Menu-icons" more than make up for this. Each icon now has the default color of the blade to its matching hilt for historical accuracy for those who want to get it just right - (Use TCK saber mod to adjust color) CREDITS: I would like to thank the original authors of the models - as this was made quite some time ago, I won't list them as it would turn into a "research" project. I only take fuil credit for the following models: BOC MICAH GILETT YADDLE As for the rest, I only take credit for making the original authors models 100% mod-compatible INSTALL INSTRUCTIONS 1) Extract TrueSabers.pk3 to your particular mod folder. EXAMPLE: If you are running "ForceMod" extract pk3 to your LucasArts/ Star Wars JK II Jedi Outcast/GameData/ForceMod folder. 2) IMPORTANT: Any hilts of the same type will cause conflicts. It is recommended to delete or move any hilt.pk3's from your particular mod folder before loading game. Any hilts not in a hiltpack (collection of multiple hilts) that are not listed below should in theory still work if you want to keep them. 3) Start game and load your particular mod as usual LIGHTSABER HISTORIES 1) Aalya Secura Aalya was the apprentice of Quinlan Vos. This lightsaber was presumed destroyed durring the onset of the Jedi Purge. 2)Adi-Gallia ep1 Adi was one of the original thirteen Jedi council members at the height of the republic before the Clone Wars. To date, she was presumed killed during the Jedi purge. Where abouts of this saber unknown. 3)Adi-Gallia ep2 At some point Adi Gallia performed routine maintanence on her lightsaber.

Obi-Wan Kenobi, having lost his own, took her lightsaber to continue to defend himself. Where abouts of this lightsaber are unknown at this point. 4)Anakin Skywalker The origin on the construction of this lightsaber is somewhat shrouded in mystery and legend. Often Padawans will go to the ice world of Ilum. There, in a specific cave, the Jedi have harvested rare Adgerian crystals used in the construction and operation of their lightsabers. This can take several days or even weeks. A Padawan can collect crystals and construct them elsewhere but for the full experience they construct them in the caves. Legend has it, Anakin entered the depths of this cavern and was visited by a dark presence. Anakin does not entirely remember constructing this, his first lightsaber but rather was in a trance and given to him by this dark vision. The lightsaber was at Anakin's side for many years until it was destroyed. Cut in half by the droid factory machinery on Geonosis. 5)Anakin Solo Anakin found this lightsaber in the Bast Castle on Vjun. It was discovered this was Obi Wan Kenobi's lightsaber. 6)Barriss Offee A Jedi Knight who looses her life in the Jedi Purge. It is assumed her lightsaber was destroyed. 7)Boc One of Jeric's cronies, an annoying Twelik but a Dark Force user nonetheless.

However, he was struck down by the newly realized Jedi, Kyle Kataran in combat. His lightsabers were presumed destroyed (Due to the limitations of the JK2 engine - only one blade will ignite. Two versions have been included for preferences) 8)Bultar Swan One of the Jedi battling at Geonosis. Where abouts of this lightsaber are unknown.

Keeping the mystery of the Sith's return, a mystery. 11)Darth Nemisis This is the oldest working single unit lightsaber known to exist.
