I would like to be first to say Welcome to the Forums.

Could you be specific on what you mean by make some new lightsabers?

Do you mean make new models or make new .uti files? Both are actually quite easy.

To make a new uti file simply go to the BIF -- Templates -- Weapons -- and double click on a lightsaber .uti file and customize it with a name and description and all tha jazz and save it to your override folder in you kotor directory.

If you want to make a new model. Download the latest version of mdlops and there is a tutorail in there on how to get it in the game.

Achillies and T7 have made some excellent tutorials on making a new lightsaber. Check the Tutorials sections for them.

Hope you have fun modding.

Could you be more specific? Do you want to model a new lightsaber? Make a new one which uses the original model, or just modify an already existing one? WHen you ask questions, please be specific...

I listed three options. Both would refer to two. Which do you mean? :rolleyes:

What was the point of that? You could've put those smilies on your previous post. For modifying an existing lightsaber:

BIFS/templates/item/(example)g_w_lghtsbr02. Once there, you can modify about anything. To make a new saber, change the tag from g_w_lghtsbr02 to something like g_w_mysaber. Save it as that, and it'll be a seperate item.

For modelling, click some of the links at the top of this forum.

there's an "edit this post" function beneath each post...you can use that function to add anything you may have 'forgotten'.

Please don't spam the forums with "smiley" posts...

Not a problem, we were all beginners at one time. Just wanted to give you a 'hint' before you got flamed... hehehe..

And of course, by any means, please discuss mods :D Holowan Laboratories is the place to be for mods and modding information :D
