This is a saber mod by Master_Xalius. In his second version of Xalius-Ep1 Sabers, he has removed most, but not all of the sound files. Here's Daku's original review:
This simple mod from Master_Xalius will make your saber blades thinner and sleeker, a form he believes to be more like that of the sabers seen in Episode I. In addition to changing the look, this file will also change the sounds from your sabers. While the sounds are pretty good, I think I prefer the sounds that come with the game. These tend to be a little long for my liking. For instance, when you put your saber away the sound continues long after it has been deactivated. Seeing as how it’s no longer there, the humming really shouldn’t be there either.
I do agree with him on the look though. I decided to bust out Episode I again, just for fun and because I thought it’d be good to check, and I think these are a fairly accurate depiction of the sabers seen in Episode I. This is a pretty decent mod if you don’t like the current sabers or have a desire to be back in Episode I again. But I think it would be much better if it were a visual only mod. Take out the new sounds and I’d probably keep it around for a while, but with these new sounds I don’t think it’ll stay very long.
Pros: 1. New graphics.
Cons: 1. Almost no more sounds.
