File Description

This is my first mod review.

Lord Mathus has sent us his 2.0 version of his lightsaber hilts. His hilts use the original hilt model of the game, but he just reskinned them. He also made them as new lightsabers. In this mod, he used the TSL Patcher. What that does is automatically install the mod. This is very useful to those who have no modding skills. It also combines .2da files. Again, very useful to those who don't have any modding skills. That way you can't have to add the lines in the upcrystals.2da file. This adds new lightsaber crystals to the game.

This is a very unique mod. I'm sure many of you will enjoy his new hilt skins. :)

Version 2.0 Update

I have redone all the alpha layers on the hilts. They were god awful. I was new and didn't realize they were so shiny, they were almost hard to look at. I have also been toying around with animated hilts for a little while and I have decided to include them in this final version 2.0. Additionally, each of the five saber blades has been animated as well. The story mod I mentioned before is still slowly being worked on. Its taken so long because I am just not a scripter. If you enjoy these sabers, I am glad I was able to make them for you.

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Instructions for animated hilts and blades

Install as usual. If in doubt, reread instructions below. Inside the tslpatchdata folder, there is a folder named "Animated." Copy all files from here to your override directory(Only after you have ran the installer). If completed properly you will now have 15 animated hilts with 5 different animated blades.

-------------------------------------------------------------------
PART I: Introduction (prt1)

This mod is just a part of a larger story mod that I am working on. This mod will add 5 new saber crystals to the game. 4 of them are attainable in game. The other is meant for the story mod, but is available through KSE or the "giveitem" cheat. With these 5 new crystals you can make a total of 15 new lightsabers. All use the standard game hilt, but each one has a unique hilt skin. Each of the 5 crystals is based on a character in the story mod. I have improved stats, but I was very sparing. These are no where near ridiculous. Hope you enjoy.

PART V: Installation (prt5)

This mod should be compatible with the USM and also with the TSL Holowan Plugin. Make sure you install this after those mods though.

1. Everything is packed into a wonderful tslpatcher package. Just run the tslpatcher.exe in the mod directory. Use this only. Copying files directly with not work properly

2. Check the install log to make sure there were no errors.

3. There will be a backup made of upcrystals.2da in the setup directory.

-------------------------------------------------------------------
PART VI: Uninstallation (prt6)

Simply remove all of the files listed in the tslpatchdata folder from your override folder. And copy the upcrystals.2da file from the backup directory back into your override directory.(Assuming you had one before, if not then just delete it)

-------------------------------------------------------------------
PART VII: In-Game Placement (prt7)

Of the 5 core crystals, 4 are attainable through the game. One is inside Vogga the Hutts secret stash inside his lair. Another is in Master Uthars chambers on Korriban. The other 2 you need to find on your own. If you play the game generally thorough you probably won't miss any. The 5th one is meant for a story mod I am working on, so it is not attainable in-game. But it is available with KSE or the "giveitem" cheat.

-------------------------------------------------------------------
PART VIII: Known Bugs (prt8)

There are no known bugs at this time.

If you discover a bug please report them to me on the Holowan Labratory Forum at www.lucasforums.com or more specifically:

I am not so good at rendering yet, so please be forgiving of the pics. If the blades look a little funny(thin or thick), they look fine in game
