Here's a nice little sword pack. Five swords are included in this pack, all based around one theme - katanas.
We've got the usual suspects, the wakizashi and masamune, along with two others, shinobigatana and shirasaya. Then, to ice the cake, we have one sword to own them all - the dual masamune. Just a shame Jedi Academy's saberstaff style isn't good for this sword. :(
Anyway, the models are all constructed well enough, the skinning job is good although I suspect a little photosourcing, the swords all shine well in-game thanks to a well-done shader. There's new sounds, although those grate on the nerves after a while. Single-player support has been added. New hit effects have also been added, which while not realistic, I love 'em all the same - just perfect for fantasy swords, and they sort of remind me of Onimusha.
A nice little touch is that the saber throw in single-player is disabled while using these swords, and you'll get a kick instead. This fits the whole fighting style typically used by samurai, and let's face it, would you throw an elegant sword like a shinobigatana around? In multi-player, the throw is still present (unfortunately).
If you like katanas, this pack is for you. You can even mod the NPCs to use them for some funfunfun. Just be aware not to use these in a dark room with a high-end graphics card, max vid settings and dynamic glow. The hit effect can be... startling.
************************************ JEDI KNIGHT:JEDIACADEMY MODIFICATION ************************************ Title : KATANA Pack Author : HOUOU Website : ----- E-mail : firstname.lastname@example.org Submitted date : 2006/6/4 File Name : KATANA Pack.pk3 File Size : 828KB (About) DESCRIPTION : These weapons are the model pack of KATANA of the Japanese sword. These were made fundamentally referring to the actual imitation. Aside from the actual sword models, the weapon of "Final Fantasy 9" is contained in these models. Texture is a little simple because it is not a photograph. (It is a part although the photograph was used correctly.) This can be used in both of Single-Player and Multi-Player. And it can use also for JA+ MOD. I thought that at first all models were intended to be divided into the separate file. But, it was collected after all because capacity grew big. -Sound and saber effect- I added the sound which was suitable for these weapons. And, new effects are added, too. -In case of single saber- A kick can be used with a Single-Player instead of saber throw. It is not a kick but saber throw in case of a Multi-Player. =======The explanation of the weapon======= Five models are in this file. MASAMUNE Probably, it is the most famous sword in the Japanese sword. It is being used for many games. FF9_MASAMUNE It is the weapon used for video game "Final Fantasy 9". This is "MASAMUNE" (Double Blade) which Zidane Tribal which is a main character uses. Incidentally, this was a little made with imagination because it didn't obtain materials for this weapon. SHIRASAYA As for this, I know only a little. This is the sheath which is suitable for the preservation of the sword (edge). Another name is being called "YASUMESAYA". In other words, they are the pajamas of the sword. (A sheath is not in this model.) WAKIZASHI This is a short sword to carry with the sword. An edge is shorter than a common sword. This sword is used as sud weapon. It is said that it becomes an important weapon by the case. SHINOBIGATANA This is the sword which a ninja uses. It is different from the usual sword, and a blade is a straight line. This is being called another name "ninja tou". ===================================================== ===How to use it=== It is called with a console to use it by the Single-Player. MASAMUNE---"saber masamune" FF9_MASAMUNE---"saber ff9_masamune" SHIRASAYA---"saber shirasaya" WAKIZASHI---"saber wakizashi" SHINOBIGATANA---"saber shinobigatana" BUGS : First of all it wasn't found. COMMENT : As a matter of fact, this was thought that only "FF9_MASAMUNE" was intended to be made. But, I wanted to make other swords, too. Therefore, it was finally decided as MODEL Pack. I couldn't find suitable attack effects. Though effect was made, I am not satisfied. Then, I made a model so that it could use shader. But, I wasn't handled after all because shader wasn't understood yet..... Still, there will be a room to improve.
