It seemed like people got this impression that a Jedi or a Sith Lord was better identified by the color of their lightsaber rather than their hilt when Expanded Universe authors wrote Star Wars stories after the Original Trilogy was completed. It wasn’t until Star Wars: Attack of the Clone was released that blade colors were limited and a Jedi or a Sith Lord’s lightsaber was more identified by its hilt design.
It would seem that both BioWare and Obsidian totally ignored the Prequel revelation and stuck more to the Expanded Universe theme by having multiple blade colors to select on the same looking hilt. Later Chuck Chargin made some software that made it possible so that modelers could make new hilts and put them into both Knights of the Old Republic games. This is when an author like Evasto comes in and gives us new hilt design to play with which is exactly what he just did.
Evasto brings us another one of his Sith looking lightsaber hilts for us to play with in his latest release of his hilt collections. As usual the author has only made it for the first Knights of the Old Republic game. It’s also has its own custom red bladed color for the hilt like he’s done before also.
This mod uses the upcrystals.2da file without the TSL Patcher. The good news is from what I can tell, it’s compatible with all his other lightsaber hilt releases, so use the one from this release if you’re using any of the author’s other hilt releases. It’s also compatible with T7nowhere’s Weapons of the Old Republic mod so if you’re using that mod and want to use this hilt, use the upcrystals.2da file from this release. Enjoy the hilt! :D
Note: Please leave the author feedback, especially if you download this mod and use it. It really helps encourage the author to make more mods in the future.
====================================================== KNIGHTS OF THE OLD REPUBLIC I MODIFICATION ====================================================== AUTHOR: Evasto EMAIL: Xao_LXIVR@hotmail.com NAME: Darth Ametha's Lightsaber FILENAME: ametha_lightsaber.zip FILE SIZE: 665KB DATE RELEASED: December 15th, 2007 DESCRIPTION: Back in action after several months. Woo! Some of you who've been around the JK2 files site might remember this hilt I made for JA. Well its back, better and badder than ever. Its an upgradeable hilt with its own custom blade color, and you can buy it in game at the store you find in the docking bay at Tattooine, where Kilana's lightsaber can be purchased. It has a few bonuses on it as well, and as you can tell by the screenshots, its quite a big hilt. NOTE: When you extract the files to your override folder, make sure you uncheck "use folder names", or else the files will unzip into a seperate folder within the override folder, and the mod won't work. INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS: Extract the files from the zip and place them in the Override folder. If you don't have one, you'll need to make one. COMMENTS: After this hilt I plan to release a pack of three lightsabers that will work for both KOTOR 1 and 2. I'm not gonna go into to much detail on them here, but lets just say the hilts will be a familiar one to a lot of us.
