Dr Who… a British legend, and a TV series that has been going for decades, all the way back to ancient times (since 1963!). For the benefit of those who have no idea what Dr Who is, check out this Wikipedia article! :)
What we have here is a hilt pack containing The Doctors Sonic Screwdriver and The Masters Laser Screwdriver. The Master is the arch nemesis of The Doctor by the way, hence why he has a much meaner sounding 'laser’ Screwdriver. At this point people who don’t know anything about Dr Who will wonder why on earth I am babbling about screwdrivers…well basically the Doctors Sonic Screwdriver is a tool that does everything….opens locked doors, fixes electronics, seems to work as a power source, scans stuff and so on. The Masters Laser Screwdriver is more of a weapon however. Why do they call them ‘screwdrivers’? I haven’t a clue, presumably because they can do a lot of stuff!
Anyway, back on track, this hilt pack contains faithful reproductions of both the Sonic and Laser Screwdriver in the form of new hilts. The Sonic Screwdriver is the one with the bluish blob on the end, whilst the Laser Screwdriver is the one with the two prongs, just in case you were wondering!
As far as the modelling and texturing goes, both are done well and do indeed look like their TV counterparts. Although for the future I would suggest trying to put a bit more detail into the textures, just to give them that bit extra depth.
All in all though a cool hilt pack here! If you are a fan of Dr Who then this is a must downlaod!

*********************************** Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy *********************************** TITLE: Dr Who Lightsaber Hilts AUTHOR: Shadow10k E-MAIL: email@example.com FILENAME: S10KDrWhoHilts.pk3 FILESIZE: 1.03MB DATE RELEASED: 15 October 2008 CREDITS: Credit goes to the magnificent prop artists at BBC, for coming up with such legendary ideas. INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS: Just place S10KDrWhoHilts.pk3 into the gamedata/base folder. DESCRIPTION: Well it certainly has been quite some time since my Sonic Screwdriver V1 Hilt, but after a year and a half of inactivity I decided to come out of hiding and begin modding again. This pack contains two lightsaber hilts. The first is the Sonic Screwdriver V2, which is a tidier, shinier version of my original. The second hilt is The Master's Laser Screwdriver. Both hilts come with shaders which add a subtle shine effect, although I need some practice with shaders. BUGS: None. COMMENTS: To any texturers out there with a good knowledge of shaders, I'd appreciate some tips on how to add a sort of - single line shining on one side as I have seen in many hilts.
