sketch42 brings us a lightsabre model which he originally made in 2005, and which, returning to the game four years later, he has generously decided to dig out and upload here. As you can see from the name and the screenshots, it is based upon the lightsabre wielded by Exar Kun. The screenshots, should, again, do most of the talking for this review, and really be your first port of call in deciding whether or not to download this mod.
Overall, the mod is good - the model is, as you can see, excellent, while the texture, though perhaps simple by the standards of the present, is no less effective in the game due to this. The author has also included a unique colour crystal for the lightsabre, which the readme tells us will react unusually with some upgrade crystals, which is a nice, and unusual, touch - as are the prerequisites for using the weapon. Not only this, but the author also found a unique placeable on which to put the item for picking up in-game without having to use cheat-codes.
On the negative side, the author didn't use the TSLPatcher to make the lightsabre compatible with other lightsabre mods, so expect incompatiblities - although given when this mod was made, that isn't a very fair critique, and the author did include helpful instructions in the readme for those who want to make the mod compatible with those they've already got installed.
N.B.: Please leave constructive criticism, particularly if you download and use this mod, as the download-counter isn't very informative.
