Topaz has created a skin modification of the lightsaber blade that attempts to give it a stained glass effect. It's an interesting idea that adds a unique effect to your sabers and saber swings. It doesn't always seem to look like stained glass, but I think that the effect even if inaccurate still looks unique and well-done.
The problem with the mod is not in its technicalities, but in taste. It's creative, but the result isn't always beautiful and is sometimes even a bit tacky. When you're using a blade color that does not match with the stained glass color that you chose, the result is a blend, and the blend sometimes looked good and a few other times looked undesirably awkward.
It's really a matter of what you like and what you don't. The stained glass effect is nicely done, but it doesn't seem to really work when you put it on a lightsaber. I actually liked best when the blade color is blue, because it looks different from the others; the effect was toned down a bit to something more subtle. I liked green blade the least because the effect, I felt, was overdone here.
However, I still would like you to check out the screenshots so that you can see for yourself if you'll like this. The author did a good job no matter what you or I think, but it just doesn't come together.
Note to developer: Due to database errors and the existence of another developer (for Half-Life) named Topaz, I had to make your Developer nick/username be your email username; sorry for the inconvenience.
