My review of the first version:
There have always been those who prefer a sword over a saber and there always will be. But sometimes when you find a good sword, there's something that just isn't right about it. Whether it's the sounds, or the saber trails, there might be something you want changed. So take a page out of WaR_ShArK_aX's book and make the changes yourself.
WaR_ShArK_aX really liked the Masamune sword created by JediMaster90888, but wasn't fond of the blade or the sounds and wanted some saber trails back. So after enhancing the color of the blade to make it appear more silver than grey and modifying just a few of the sounds, he was well on his way to a sword mod that he would want to use. The crowing glory would have to be the new saber trail he added to this sword. The trails definitely do this sword justice. Great job!
New Sounds: Yep
Okay, grrr. In the update to this sword mod, the author has managed to please me and annoy me at the same time! You all know how I feel about sounds in weapon mods - but WaR_ShArK_aX actually succeeded in pleasing me with the sword sounds featured in this mod. They work so well with the sword itself. The sword seems heavy, and the sounds match that. There are sparks when your blade hits a wall or the floor and when a saber blocks your sword, the sounds almost make you feel the vibrations as your sword bounces off.
But then, WaR_ShArK_aX takes away the one thing I liked about the first version of the mod - the saber trail! I suppose it didn't really work with a sword mod - but I liked it! All in all though, I'd have to say that this is a great update. I will be keeping this sword in my base folder. Great work, WaR_ShArK_aX!
Jedi Academy Custom Hilt Model/Skin/Trail ================================================================ Hilt Name - Masamune Version - 2.0 Author - WaR_ShArK_aX Email Address - email@example.com Web site - www.sharks-aquarium.tk "An enhanced version of the Masamune" Description- An edited version of JediMaster90888's Masamune hilt. One thing that drives me insane is when their's a really cool sword hilt out but the blade looks more gray then it does silver and the sounds replace the old ones and the saber trails are completely gone. In light of this, I've added a new shader to the model, as well as a new skin, to help make the blade look more like a sword's blade. I finally got the chance to add the custom sound set and independant colors that I wanted to add in the first version. I did leave the trail effects alone because they're just too cool to put back to normal ;>. In this update, the orange saber color is returned to normal, so now all you orange blade fans can have your fiery trails back. Version Changes- -Slight model changes -Independant sounds -Saber style bug fixed -Independant trail (I did leave in the custom trail effects due to the fact that so many people enjoyed them) ================================================================ Special Thanks To- KOTORMrJay, who as always was a huge help and very supportive friend JediRingo/Bingo, for all of the beta testing he did. Otherwise, I probably would have not caught a lot of the errors that they're were in the beginning JediMaster90888, without whom, I would have never even thought of attempting a project like this ================================================================ Software used: Adobe PhotoShop Winzip MilkShape 3D MD3 View Installation instrucions- Fresh Install: Extract (Unzip) to your JA Base folder.
