Here we have one of the scarcer mod types: an animation mod. Alas, no new animations, but we do have some interesting rearrangements of the animation.cfg file. The author rearranged the animation frames to give each of the single-saber styles a new look. Blue style is based on Yoda's saber stance, yellow style is based on the Darth Vader vs. Ben Kenobi duel, and red is based on Anakin vs. Dooku. These stances all seem to look pretty good in-game.
I really must question the author's decision to change the walk and run animations for the single saber. As I was running along with my single blade I felt (and sounded) like a herd of stampeding cattle. The author just moved some of the dual/staff animations to the single blade walk/run animations. I personally don't like them, but then again I never liked those animations to begin with. This truly is a matter of personal taste.
The new saber sounds reminded me suspiciously of the saber sounds from Dark Forces 2, which makes me wonder if the author didn't just rip them from that game. I'll give him the benefit of the doubt, though. They are placed in a separate PK3, so you can choose whether you want to use them or not. Overall this is a pretty good mod, and not something you see very often. If you're looking for a little bit of variety, or like the saber stances from the movies, this may be a download for you.
