One of the new concepts that Knights of the Old Republic games brought in is using short lightsabers. Sure, Yoda used one in Attack of the Clones before Knights of the Old Republic was released and the younglings each used one. However in the Knights of the Old Republic games, the concept of a short lightsaber was to use it in your off-hand, like it if someone was using dual swords and one was regular length while having a short one in the off-hand. It would seem like it was meant to be used for defense purposes rather than it being your single main weapon to take into battle.
Oldflash at one point took this concept a step further by making short lightsaber into fork lightsabers. As you can see from the screenshots that you hilt the middle of the hilt while two blades; one on each side will turn on. Even though the original release never made it to FileFront, this mod has been updated by Darth InSidious so that they have crystals and they’re upgradable; so we’re blessed in getting the cooler and updated version of the mod.
This mod does use the TSL Patcher to save those without any modding skills possible headaches with 2da editing if you have an upcrystals.2da file in your personal override folder. It also saves time for even experience modders for making the manual changes ourselves. Enjoy the new hilts! :D

"Fork" Short Lightsabres v1.0 by oldflash and Darth InSidious ============================================================= Introduction ------------ It's been a long time in coming, but at last this mod has been completed, bugfixed and is now (hopefully) playable. When oldflash originally made the fork model, perhaps a year ago now I agreed to make it unique and available in all colours. I came very close to failing to do so, thanks to a few hitches along the way, but it is, at long last, complete. And so, without further blithering on my part, here is the mod. -Darth InSidious, 9/11/2007 Description ----------- This mod adds a whole set of new short lightsabres - one for each lightsabre colour available in the game, and their crystals to the game. They can be found in the Enclave Sublevel on Dantooine, in the secure storage area. Installation ------------ Just double-click on the "Install "Fork" Short Lightsabres" icon to begin the installation. Do not attempt manual installation - it will not work. Don't worry about fiddling with the Source Scripts or Screenshots folders - they are not required for the mod to run. Uninstallation -------------- Remove the following files from your "Override" folder: w_ShortSbr247.tga w_ShortSbr248.tga w_ShortSbr249.tga w_ShortSbr250.tga w_ShortSbr251.tga w_ShortSbr252.tga w_ShortSbr253.tga w_ShortSbr254.tga w_ShortSbr255.tga iw_ShortSbr247.tga iw_ShortSbr248.tga iw_ShortSbr249.tga iw_ShortSbr250.tga iw_ShortSbr251.tga iw_ShortSbr252.tga iw_ShortSbr253.tga iw_ShortSbr254.tga iw_ShortSbr255.tga iw_SbrCrstl247.tga iw_SbrCrstl248.tga iw_SbrCrstl249.tga iw_SbrCrstl250.tga iw_SbrCrstl251.tga iw_SbrCrstl252.tga iw_SbrCrstl253.tga iw_SbrCrstl254.tga iw_SbrCrstl255.tga w_lsabrereed01.tga somethingtome.tga iw_Stunbaton_241.tga w_ShortSbr247.mdl w_ShortSbr247.mdx w_ShortSbr248.mdl w_ShortSbr248.mdx w_ShortSbr249.mdl w_ShortSbr249.mdx w_ShortSbr250.mdl w_ShortSbr250.mdx w_ShortSbr251.mdl w_ShortSbr251.mdx w_ShortSbr252.mdl w_ShortSbr252.mdx w_ShortSbr253.mdl w_ShortSbr253.mdx w_ShortSbr254.mdl w_ShortSbr254.mdx w_ShortSbr255.mdl w_ShortSbr255.mdx of_shtcrstl_247.uti of_shortsbr_247.uti of_shtcrstl_248.uti of_shortsbr_248.uti of_shtcrstl_249.uti of_shortsbr_249.uti of_shtcrstl_250.uti of_shortsbr_250.uti of_shtcrstl_251.uti of_shortsbr_251.uti of_shtcrstl_252.uti of_shortsbr_252.uti of_shtcrstl_253.uti of_shortsbr_253.uti of_shtcrstl_254.uti of_shortsbr_254.uti of_shtcrstl_255.uti of_shortsbr_255.uti di_bottle1.uti iw_sbrcrstl_252.txi w_lsabrereed01.txi di_box_1.utp di_spn_fs.ncs And any files I missed off my list, with the exception of 'upcrystals.2da' - do NOT remove this file if it is used in another, or several other mods in your Override folder, as those mods will no longer work either. If there is a mod conflict, remove the upcrystals.2da for this mod and and put in the upcrystals.2da for the other mod. Or vice versa. Likewise for 'door_conductor2.utd'. Known Conflicts --------------- As far as I know, this mod shouldn't conflict with many that are out there - the only one I can think of at the moment is MdKnightR's 'Heart of the Force' sabres. It should be fully compatible with the USM and most mods using upcrystals.2da, but don't hesitate to tell me if you find that there's a conflict with another mod. I may not be able to help, but I can put a warning in any future updates of the mod. :) The mod may also conflict with any other mod that uses the "door_conductor2.utd" file. Known Bugs ---------- None that I know of at present. Again, please let me know if you find any. :) Contact ------- Feel free to PM me at Lucasforums ( http://www.lucasforums.com ), or to email me at email@example.com . I also read the comments pages on my mods at filefront/moddb, so you can leave a comment there, too. :) LEGAL DISCLAIMER ---------------- THIS MOD IS PROVIDED AS-IS.
