This is a saber blade modification, making the core of the blades a bit pointier, which was supposedly the "Revenge of the Sith" style. To be honest I didn't pay attention the the saber blades in RotS when I was watching it. The author states that this style grew on him after seeing RotS several times, and that in addition to modifying the core he brightened the color (and changed blue completey) and increased the resolution of the saber glow so it's more smooth.
Yeah, I bet you smelled a gripe coming. All good mods have gripes. This mod is good enough, but I just don't like the glow. It seems to me like the author slightened the cores, pointed them, but left the big fat glow alone, and now it just seems too big. I'd like this mod a lot better if the author went back and resized the glows to match the new blades, however that's my personal preference so you'll have to decide what you think for yourself.
Readme File: JEDI KNIGHT: JEDI ACADEMY MODIFICATION ************************************** Title : Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith Lightsaber Blades author : PK_Azlon email :firstname.lastname@example.org File Name :episode3blades.pk3 Description: I originaly hated the idea of adding points to the lightsaber blades, but then I remembered the old artwork from the original trilogy and most of the time the blades were pointed. After seeing RotS four times, they grew on me. After several revisions of existing blades, I realized the only way to get them just right was to completely remake them. I did make them thinner than the movie but only because the thicker blades would not fit properly with some hilts. I also broke convention by making the glow files at 256 x 256 pixel resolution instead of the original 128 x 128, making the glow a little bit smoother in-game. I also made the blue a light blue, for those of you who know RGB colors, its Red: 0 Green: 150 Blue: 255. This is basicaly Sky Blue. Finally, I made all the colors brighter, some may not like this, and based on feedback I might change it. ---------------------------------- Edit: June 13, 2005 Today I saw that Broken-Hope released his own saber blades pack. However I will still release mine, which were ready to release in May (I have been so involved in Star Wars Galaxies I forgot to release them). I have great respect for Broken-Hope's work and I hope the players will try both releases and leave it to personal preference. ---------------------------------- Installation: Extract episode3sabers.pk3 into Jedi Academy's /gamedata/base directory.
