The Heart of the Guardian's blade is pure trash, it looks like someone filled a glowstick with vomit.

I've searched all over the forum and through pcgamemods and haven't found anything, so, is there any mod that changes the color of the saber to something a little more attractive?

If not, could someone help me edit the blade myself? I'm very good with photoshop, got about 5 years experience with it, so texture editing won't be a problem.

Thanks.

myself and Lord of Banthas recently worked on a modified sabre colours mod, we are just fine tuning it and then it should be on the Infinite Empire site (on my sig) but it hasnt been updated as of yet, too busy with our mods, so i dont think its up there yet

Actually it would be very easy to change the color of the HotG blade. To put it in really simple terms just find a texture (color) that you like and change the file name from whatever it happens to be, to w_lsabregold.tga as well as having the accompanying .txi file and put it into your override folder. If you need more help just ask. :)

Wow, quick replies. :D

Anyway, I found the download that contains all the saber textures in it. I'm working on editing the saber's color now.

Any ideas what you guys think would look nice? I tried a lime-green but it looked more yellow ingame, not that good.

Okay.

I took a look at Mantle and said, "Y'know, it's really just a pale blue."

I figured I'd make them follow a common theme, so I made the Heart a pale red. I'm probably gonna keep working on a different color, but how's this?

Edit: Speaking of texture editing, how would I find and edit the textures of an ingame item, say, the vacuum mask I'm wearing in that picture? I want to edit it and make it fit my outfit better.

Personally I don't like the pale red, but I don't like red in general I'm mostly a Lightsider...:):D:):D:)

As far as the Vacuum mask goes you need to download KotOR Tool and then you can extract all of the texture files, as far as which exact file is the Vacuum Mask I'll have to check.

Edit: I think the file for the Vacuum Mask texture is i_vacuummsk.tga, but I'm not sure

KOTOR Tool, roger that.

I'll look up the list of item names and find it.

Then I just place the new texture in override, right?

That's a little too dark for my tastes ;)

I'm gonna keep working on it.

yea after you edit the texture you just put it in the override folder, and you should be ready to go

The vacuum mask is called g_i_mask06

I've got KOTOR Tool up and running...but where can I find the texture :p

Texture's are in ERF's > Texture Packs > and from there are four options where you can find your stuff. I think that the Vacuum Mask texture is in swpc_tex_tpa.erf > i > and i_vacuummsk.tpc but I am not sure.

Okay, I extracted that...and I don't think it's the right one. It's got nothing in it resembling the mask I'm wearing, instead it's all dark gray and blue with lots of chotchkies.

Okay, I made a color I like. It's remeniscent of the old one but not as disgusting.
