Well, what do you know! Jose, one of our former reviewers has sent us in a new mod to review! :D
What we have here is a saber mod, which adds two new hilts for you to use ingame. As Jose explains in his readme, and as the title suggests, these hits are designed around the theme of Wolves. Now, personally I think I prefer Wolves to dogs, dogs slobber all over you… whereas Wolves seem to be a little more polite in that respect. That is if they don’t eat you before you get that close! But anyway, I digress. :P
Both hilts have some nice patterning on the main body of the hilt, and as you can see from the screenshots below, the emitter where the saber blade emits from is shaped like the head of a wolf! The part in particular I was very impressed with as the detail is very good and makes these hilts very unique.
Of the two hilts here, one is a nice silvery colour, which reminds me of the Grey wolves that you generally see in pictures, and the other reminds me of the much scarier looking Black Wolves. It even has green eyes… so perhaps it was meant to be styled after the Hound of the Baskervilles!
As for things to improve upon…well I couldn’t find any bugs with these hilts and both are well made and look great so I am having a hard time thinking of things to suggest! One thing I think would be cool is if there were some more 3D detail added to the pommel of the hilt, since at the moment it is just a simple dome. Perhaps a spike on the end in the style of a Wolf’s tail or other similar things would look good.
Overall though two very nice saber hilts here, so if you are a fan of Wolves and other similar animals, or just like the look of these hilts, give them a download! :)
Oh and before I forget, I wouldn’t recommend actually trying to construct the ‘butt kicking’ machine mentioned in the readme, it may prove lethal…MWAHAHAHA!!!
New Hilt Model: Yes New Sounds: No
*********************************** Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy *********************************** Name: Twin Wolves Author: Jose Carlos E-mail: email@example.com CREDITS -------- Yeah, I'd like to thank Jesus Christ, Jehovah God Almighty and all my family for being so supportive throughout my career. Thank you all, I love ya! Oh, and those dudes over at Raven for making the game, this Lucas guy for no particular reason and myself for being so damned awesome. INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS -------------------------- Put the .pk3 in GameData/Base. DESCRIPTION ------------ A pair of sabers modeled with a wolf image in mind. Simple, no? The original design called for a second blade to take the place of the energy beam within the hilt itself, but that didn't turn out all that well. Looked like crap, too. Anyway, they may not be the best looking hilts around, nor the most awesome, but I still think they kick butt more than 8 boots mounted on a ship's wheel mounted on an F1 engine going at 19000 rpm. Granted, that could just be the elation of finally figuring out why the hell my shader didn't work talking. You might've noticed that there's no activation switch, nor, indeed, any knobs or buttons anywhere on these things. That was an aesthetic choice caused by the fact that I chose not to add them. Also, I'd like to note that the butt-kicking machine I described above can and will explode if the wheel isn't properly reinforced and the pieces firmly attached to each other. Just a note of caution should you ever attempt to construct one. SPAWN CODES ---------------------- saber vanargand saber manegarm OTHER STUFF ------------------- Basically, if you're gonna screw around with them (why you'd even want to do that, however, is well beyond my comprehension), ask me first, alright? I really don't give a damn about what you do with them in the privacy of your own abode, but for the love of all that was, is and ever will be unholy, if you're gonna submit it anywhere, don't. Just direct them here. Not that difficult, is it? I don't really want to find my work floating around somewhere I don't remember sending it.
