View Full Version : Some unrelated questions about .2das and textures

i figured it'd be better to just post both questions in one thread as opposed to spamming the boards.

1. i saw pieman's work with the double-weilding double-bladed lightsabers (very cool). this sparked my mind: would it possible to weild a blade AND a blaster? (or even cooler, a lightsaber and a blaster). i figure there must be something that tags a blaster as a blaster and a melee weapon as such. this would be very cool to see.

2. this is more of a request, since i'm not sure how to put new textures in-game:
when you are leaning toward the darkside, if you un-equip all clothing/armor as a male player, you get a cool looking black sith body-suit (almost like a superhero costume). if anyone could, i would love it if you could create a generic clothing or armor out of this texture (i can and will add stats to it on my own, i'm quite capable there, i just don't know how to make new textures).

your help is appreciated.

About wielding the blaster and saber, there is a stickied post made by T7 that includes removing item restrictions. I haven't done this myself, but I think it should allow you to wield the blaster and saber. (I'm glad you enjoyed the mod)

There is a way where you could get your character to hold a lightsaber and a blaster the only proble is the blaster acts like a lightsaber. So what needs to be done is to make it so the game will allow incompatible weapons to be held at the same time. I don't know if that can be done. The game doesn't like ranged and close combat weapons to be used at the same time. The devs Probly did this so they wouldn't have to make animations for such a thing or they didn't think of it.

yeah, i figured that would be impossible for that reason, the idea just jumped out at me when i saw pieman's mod, and i'd heard people request this kind of thing before.

no ideas on the jumpsuit though?

For your jumpsuit: you could copy the modela file in appearance.2da to your character, although this would not make it a seperate item. (meaning even if you were lightside, you would have that "under garment".
