Evasto has returned with another lightsaber hilt to play with for the Knights of the Old Republic game. This also breaks the streak of 12 strait TSL mods. Of course that’s not a big deal since 70% of the mods here are for TSL. I did make a big deal out of having 9 strait K1 mods last month because that never happens, but anyway, this new hilt gives us the first K1 mod since April 2. This is also my 100th file review just for K1 games (296th overall so far)!
This second hilt release has some similarities to the last one. There are noticeable differences, but also some noticeable similarities. This hilt is also designed for the dark side of the Force. It also like the last one has a custom red blade color.
Another feature that is the same from the last release is that the lightsaber bonus properties are designed against the light side of the Force. The downside to that is you only have one opportunity to fight against a light side Jedi and that would be Juhani on top of the Rakatan Temple. You have to choose the dark path there at that moment and have redeemed Juhani in the Dantooine Grove. Of course that means the properties can’t be used against Jolee since he’s a neutral Jedi. I think it’s the idea of what the lightsaber can do when those properties are given than anything.
The information on where this hilt will show up is in the readme. The cheat code for getting this hilt is also in the readme. Well, again, a cool looking hilt and a nice addition to the site. I’m always excited when we get new lightsaber hilts. Anyway, enjoy the new hilt. :D

====================================================== KNIGHTS OF THE OLD REPUBLIC I MODIFICATION ====================================================== AUTHOR: Evasto EMAIL: Xao_LXIVR@hotmail.com NAME: Evasto's Lightsaber FILENAME: evasto_saber.zip FILE SIZE: 632 KB DATE RELEASED: April 10th, 2007 DESCRIPTION: This mod places another new lightsaber into the game, along with a new crystal that enables it to be upgradeable. Unlike my first release, Evasto's lightsaber is obtainable through traditional methods. Traditional in a sense that you gotta beat someone into the ground to get it. To get the hilt you need to do the cloaking Mandalorian sidequest on Kashyyyk and fight the Mandalorian commander. Once you show him who's boss, you'll find the lightsaber on his corpse. If you don't wanna wait that long and don't mind cheating, just type "giveitem w_lghtsbr_125" (without quotes) into the cheat console, and if you want the crystal, type "giveitem w_sbrcrstl_125" (Again, without quotes). The blade to the lightsaber also pulses. Like Inrita's lightsaber, this hilt carries a custom blade texture. NOTICE: Unlike Inrita's lightsaber, where the saber will disappear if you try to upgrade it, this hilt is truly upgradeable. However, its advised you don't remove the crystal from the hilt, or else bad things will happen. Also, when you extract the files from the zip, make sure "use folder names" is turned off, or else the mod will be unzipped to a folder labeled "Evasto's lightsaber" inside the Override folder, and the mod won't work. COMMENTS: Those of you who were on JK3 files would remember this hilt. It was one of the first ones I made for JK3 (and needless to say it didn't look the greatest). Thanks to KOTOR's more powerful engine, Evasto's saber now looks like it should have: Smooth, sleek and of course deadly. Due to the limitations of the game, though, I couldn't make a double bladed version without elongating the hilt. SPECIAL THANKS TO: Deadman, for finding out how to make the blades pulse. 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. BUGS: There appears to be a slight messup with the textures, but the hilt is fairly dark and you never see it up close and personal, and since it doesn't interfere with gameplay its no biggie. PERMISSIONS: This mod may not be distributed on other sites without the express permission of the author, and without credit given to the original creator of the mod.
