My first Mod..
Special Thanks to
svösh for all his Excellent Tutorials and knowledge in G-max as well as allowing the use of his Cm_ManUn txi
-Seprithro for all his help and patience in showing me how to model this saber
-and of course the great Team at Holowan Labs for ll their Great Resources!!!!

- Fred Tetra for the Kotor Tool app... without i'de be Lost... as if im not already :-p

- cchargin for his MDLops proggy

- Achilles for ALL the great tutorials which made this (my first mod) possible!




screenshots and download info at end of this post

From the Read Me

**EDIT**


UPDATE: vers: 1.3
-Fixed A problem with descriptions not showing for Crystal and Saber.
-Reskinned Hilt (still Playing with it tell me what you think)


The only Downside i see which isnt really a downside is that the only way for the fix to take is by using the giveitem cheat. if the saber is already in your inventory you can keep 2. or use the Kotor Save Game editor to remove i from your list and than use the cheat console to get the saber again. Sorry for the inconveneince.
If there is aneasier way to do this please enlighten me.

New Version OUT!!!

just to note... if you Downloaded the Mod the New Color Crystal is specifically for the new hilt if you try putting the crystal in a standard saber most likely your game will crash.... i will upload a revised version of the mod Hopefully later tonight so the crystal can be supported by all sabers...


also if you want me to add some diff properties as well that you think would fit with this saber feel free to post your suggestions

Yes, for PCGameMods, you just resubmit the .zip just like you posted the mod the first time.

Just put a new version in the version box (Ex: 1.0 becomes 1.1) and use an Identical title, and description to the previous version, with notations in the discription indicating a newer version.

I hope this helps! :D

Of course, you should want to change the filename anyway so you know what version you are on at a glance.

Usually I name my zip files like RHWhateverMod1.zip then if I have to update it I name the next one RHWhateverMod1a.zip or RHWhateverMod2.zip then I know at a glance if I have made a new version or not. :D

PCGameMods won't let you update the file you have allready uploaded, so you have to give it a different name, but not that different, hence why I use a 1 then 1a or 2 at the end of my zip filenames. The moderators at PCGameMods then will delete your previous version when they get to it. ;)

Change the file name to like 1.1 or something. The way it works right now is if you need to update then just upload the new version with the same name accept with the increasing version number. once you do this the old version will be deleted by an admin. Like me :)

Sergio is working on adding the ability for a user to edit there own files, but that will take some time.

Fixed a Bug with description of crystal and saber not showing.
If you would like to see the descriptions, it seems that you will need to get the saber again, no worries just use the give item cheat and have 2 !!!

if theres another way to so this i would like to know

anywho... herees the file (CLICK ME) (http://knightsoftheoldrepublic.filefront.com/file/New_Exar_Kun_DoubleSaber_Hilt;97628) till i figure out how to update it at kotor2files.

o 1 more thing im playing with the texture again so in this version it has a slighlty diff skin, more metal looking with a tinge of rubber.

Updated first post
d'oh!!! forgot TSL Patcher... I'll fix that in the next version the last thing is the skin so once thats woked out im going to release Some Robes as well and maybe a new force power!! (Hopefully :D)
