Well, well, whaddya know, it's a Buster Sword that's not a "hilariously oversized baseball bat". Don't even get me started on Square-Enix's complete lack of originality, but at least they didn't give Cloud a cameo this time (that part of FF Tactics was the worst sidequest ever).
Anyway, this sword is wielded by Gilgamesh, for those who don't know, during (apparently) the "Ancient Man of Mystery" hunt. Those who don't know who Gilgamesh is don't really need a synopsis here - suffice to say he/she/it's a serial sword thief within the FF universe that's packing every WMS ever made by Square-Enix.
This Buster Sword is inherently much shorter than the FF7 variant, and has two extra materia slots (although materia don't exist in FFXII, go figure). Other than that, it's pretty much the same thing.
The texture of the sword matches up pretty well with all the screenshots of Gilgamesh using this thing that were sent to me over MSN, even the symbol is accurate to the game. Admittedly I was a little concerned about how that symbol would look, but it's come out OK. One part that could use a little more detail is the hilt - the detail is there, I just have a hard time seeing it, while in FFXII it's clearly visible. That's just a minor tweak suggestion, though. Between the WIP thread, and Kessno and Gir's respective input, all the problems seem to have been ironed out.
Well, I can certainly see no problems with this, so I'm gettin' the hell out of the way before the fanboy stampede begins.
*********************************** Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy *********************************** TITLE: Buster Sword (FF12) AUTHOR: Inyri Forge E-MAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org FILENAME: buster_ff12_if.pk3 DATE RELEASED: 28 January 2007 BUILD TIME: 3 hours -------- CREDITS -------- Primary credits to Square. Credits also to Almighty Gir, for providing an honest opinion, and to Kessno, for assuring me that the mod is indeed working. If there are bugs, blame him for not finding them! ;) -------------------------- INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS -------------------------- Dump this is your gamedata/base directory within your Jedi Academy directory. ------------ DESCRIPTION ------------ This is a model of the Final Fantasy 12 variant of the Buster Sword, as wielded by Gilgamesh in the 'Ancient Man of Mystery' hunt. It is very similar to the Final Fantasy 7 version, but with some minor details. It has been made to look as similar to the original version as possible, given the restrictions of the engine, and I attempted to keep the polycount as low as possible without sacrificing too much of the detail. ---------------------- SPAWN INFORMATION ---------------------- To use Gilgamesh's Buster Sword in SP, use the following command: saber buster_ff12_if ----- BUGS ----- No real bugs to speak of, that I'm aware of. --------- COMMENTS --------- If you don't know what the FF12 Buster Sword is supposed to look like, make sure to check the screenshots first. And do keep in mind, this isn't supposed to be the Advent Children buster sword, the FF7 buster sword, the Kingdom Hearts buster sword.... you get the idea. ------------------- DISTRIBUTION NOTES ------------------- You may use this modification in mods as long as this read-me is included in your archive, unaltered, and appropriate credit is given.
