Okay, when I saw this, it kind of reminded me of a club. Or some other bludgeoning weapon. But, that's just my first impression, it's actually a nice saber.
First off, it's supposed to show the inner workings of a lightsaber. While I've never really been concerned about that, it's a nice thing to be able to see. On to the details of the hilt.
It looks blocky, which, being something of a fledgling modeller myself, is explainable. You need some space to work in. Although I would have scaled it down a bit, that's just me. But I must admit, if you want your saber to show its inner workings, you would want it to be a bit bigger, so you'd actually be able to see how it works!
One problem that I saw was that the blade itself goes through half the saber! And I mean the actual final blade. So, that's the one small problem that I was able to see.
Inyri has also given the option of overriding a default saber! I love it when people do this, as I get sick of the old sabers.
So, if you like this, give it a download!
*********************************** Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy *********************************** TITLE: Forge Lightsaber Hilt AUTHOR: Inyri Forge E-MAIL: email@example.com WEBSITE: http://inyri.filefreak.net/ FILENAME: saber_forge.pk3 FILESIZE: 411kb DATE RELEASED: 18 February 2005 BUILD TIME: 3 days -------- CREDITS -------- Nobody to credit this time. That makes me kind of sad inside... -------------------------- INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS -------------------------- Put saber_forge.pk3 in your gamedata/base directory within your Jedi Academy directory. If you would like the single_1 overwrite (read below) place saber_forge_overwrite in your gamedata/base directory within your Jedi Academy directory. This file requires saber_forge.pk3 to function. ------------ DESCRIPTION ------------ I came up with a concept for a hilt that showed a 'window' into the inner workings of a lightsaber. After some research, I created what I believe to be an accurate representation of some of the parts of the lightsaber: the primary and secondary focusing crystals (and their mounts), the energy channeler, and the right and left energizers. There is also a second blade (which is untoggleable) that runs through the focusing crystals.. This is the beam that eventually becomes the larger blade we all see jutting out of lightsaber hilts. An optional overwrite (of the saber single_1) is also included. If you decide you want it to overwite a different saber, do the following: -open saber_forge_overwrite.pk3 and extract single_1.sab from ext_data>sabers -change the file name to single_x.sab (x being the number you want to overwrite) -open the file and change the first line which says "single_1" to "single_x" where x is once again the number you want to overwrite -save and place back into the PK3 ---------------------- SPAWN INFORMATION ---------------------- The main hilt is designed to be purple, but since the crystal color is almost impossible to see in-game I opted not to change it. If I thought it was going to be visible I would have, believe me. It'll look fine regardless of what blade color you choose. To use this in singleplayer, use the following command: saber saber_forge ----- BUGS ----- No bugs to speak of, that I've found. --------- COMMENTS --------- This is kind of my personal hilt, but I'll probably never use it. I just kind of wanted to make something I designed myself rather than copying something. As you might've notice, I prefer a somewhat simpler style. No blades or spikes jutting out.
