View Full Version : Lightsaber Holster Idea

In one of the Lower City Apartments on Taris, Calo Nord Pulls out his blaster from his clothes. I the Idea of a Lightsaber Holster, couldn't you just retexture all of the jedi robes so that they have a lightsaber hanging from the belt?

Wouldnt it just be a 2D picture....I guess anything is better than nothing.

Would be neat if you add an animation with it to... I hate running around with my lightsabre in my hands all the time. You could always copy the "upgrade your weapon-animation" if possible. It's kinda cool :)

What I hate is either having to re-equip everyone each time a fight comes or walking around the town with big weapons drawn all the time, even in cut-scenes. Feels dumb, especially when you're supposed to be lying low. Guess putting in a 'Holster Weapon' key was too much for Bioware to contemplate.

I totaly agree! This would be a wonderful additon to the game... if it could be done, that is!


edit: What about the same concept, only with blasters ?

Though I'm pulling my hair out because of it, Gothic 2 has a nice take on weapons. Pull a sword on someone or run up to someone with sword drawn and they ask you to put it away or they kill you. Also you can see your weapon at your side (though there's no sheath).

I think the only way to do it would be to edit the models. which we still can't do. :(

It would be nice if the weapon would just go back into your invetory when it's not being used.

Nah, I have too many red lightsabers.
