This has got to be one of the best weapons I've seen for JK3...ever. No joke. I can see that it probably won't appeal to all, and maybe it isn't technically the most well-made, I don't know. But in the end, it's the final product that counts, and if it works and looks good, then you can't really put it down. This pack contains 4 sword variants, although they are only really 4 different variants of the same model, some with a brighter glow and some that are designed for 'strong' saber style only.
You may see the screens and realize see that you can see the lightsaber blade through the sword. I think it's supposed to be like that, and even if it isn't, it looks cool. You can even add extra glow-blades by pressing the 'L' key when using the strong style saber and the glow is removed as you'd expect when the saber is turned off. You can't throw them however, which may be a disadvantage when playing for victory.
However, the best part of this mod, or rather, the part that makes it really stand out for me, is definitely the sounds. It's not like a standard weapon. When you unsheathe it, you get like a ghostly chorus that starts to murmur, and a very eerie noise. It's almost reminiscent of the background noises you hear in games like Doom3, and it’s awesome. :D I really can't find a lot to fault with this. Some may not like the texture on the blade, or the model shape itself, and I must admit, the blade did look a little weird at first, but it's definitely grown on me. In fact, this is probably the first weapon I'll have kept in my base folder in a few years.

Thanks to Trauma Sensei for the awesome smoke effect. :) INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS**: Unzip into your Jedi Academy Base Directory DESCRIPTION**: This is the Demon Sword FrostMourne from Warcraft3, I made another one before, but V2 is better. V2 has better textures, a better model, has blade clashing effects, and is SP capable. From Wikipedai: "A powerful runeblade, Arthas sought Frostmourne in the hope that its vast power would allow him to rid Lordaeron of the Scourge and save his people. Unbeknownst to him, however, Frostmourne was in fact a cursed blade created by the Lich King. The sword granted Arthas immense power, but it also channeled the Lich King's powers through him, which turned him into the Lich King's puppet and the Scourge's greatest Death Knight. The pedestal in Northrend that housed Frostmourne was guarded by Ice Revenants who attempted to stop Arthas from gaining the blade - when Arthas taunted them about trying to protect Frostmourne from him, their leader rebuked that they were actually attempting to protect Arthas from the blade itself. On the pedestal, an inscription warned adventurers thusly: "Whomsoever takes up this blade shall wield power eternal. Just as the blade rends flesh, so must power scar the spirit." Prominent victims of Frostmourne include Muradin Bronzebeard, Mal'Ganis the Dreadlord, King Terenas Menethil, Uther Lightbringer, Antonidas of Dalaran, Sylvanas Windrunner, and Illidan Stormrage (who is the only character who has been critically wounded by Frostmourne and lived)." BUGS: None that I know of. Comments: blade tag errors fixed, smoke effect added. THIS MODIFICATION IS NOT MADE, DISTRIBUTED, OR SUPPORTED BY ACTIVISION, RAVEN, OR LUCASARTS ENTERTAINMENT COMPANY LLC.
