A Realistic Saber! Now, at the moment you are probably thinking this is going to be another one of those ‘movie realistic lightsaber blade’ mod’s. Well, you’re in for a surprise!
This is exactly what the name says it is, a Realistic Saber. In other words, this is a depiction of what a lightsaber in our own world might look like. This bit of the readme sums it up nicely I think;
On this saber, there is a rod with a mirror attached to bounce the beam back, since a laser or plasma beam cant simply stop.
Yes, unfortunately lightsaber’s are impossible to make, at least by our technological standards since we couldn’t fit any kind of battery that generates that much power into such a small handle and you cant make a laser or plasma beam stop in mid air. If you have a degree in physics and have a theory as to how you might actually go about making a real lightsaber however, feel free to correct me! :P
In this instance, the hilt has a rod going up the length of the saber beam on the outside, ending in a mirror which reflects the beam back, which is really clever I think. Also, if you really like the look of just the hilt, and want to use it without the ‘realistic’ bits, this mod comes with just the hilt on its own, no rod or mirror.
All in all a very cool idea and a well-made hilt from Merios and 1ShotDoctor, I recommend a download! :)

NAME: Realistic Saber FILE SIZE: 320 KB FILE NAME: Realistic_Saber.pk3 AUTHOR: Merios/1ShotDoctor E-mail: email@example.com GAME: Jedi Academy (JK3) CATEGORY: Models>Weapons>Hilt DESCRIPTION: Merios had an idea of what a more realistic(in our world) saber would be like. This is that saber. On this saber, there is a rod with a mirror attached to bounce the beam back, since a laser or plasma beam cant simply stop. The saber includes SP support for both the regular, and hilt only versions. Now for the Star Wars bit: This hilt was built using the Cortosis Weave. "Cortosis weave was a descriptor for equipment that had been crafted utilizing cortosis ore. This was traditionally put into swords or other melee weapons but could also be fashioned into armor or other gear. Cortosis weave was employed primarily because it made the weapon able to withstand lightsaber blows. Weapons needed very little cortosis to be effective but armor required a substantially larger amount. The greater quantity provided an additional benefit to wearers though- a lightsaber would deactivate after contact was made with cortosis armor. Cortosis was extremely rare though and, thus, extremely expensive, resulting in few weapons and armor made with it." Taken from this site: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Cortosis_weave That explains why the mirror doesnt break, and why another saber cannot break the rod.
