I have no idea if this mod's already been requested or discarded as I'm fairly new to the forums >_< just say so if it has and i'll shut up. :cowdance

I've been playing the Kotor 1 and 2 over and over again fighting Nihilus and Malak and I've noticed that while swinging their saber they do it entirely differently from all other characters whether it b your PC or an NPC, they only use one hand and have a habit of swinging irractically.

just by chance, is it possible to make your own character do the same? preferably without making the char as tall as nihilus >_<.

if u bothered 2 read this thankies >_<

PS: if there already is one, please direct me to it, couldnt find it at PCgamemods.

Unfortunately that model has custom animations and doesn't use any of the standard animation supermodels. This means that you can't easily transfer those animations to another model.

And while you could change the appearance of that model, its custom animation set is extremely limited. In essence there is only animations for what Malak could do (and Nihilus model is based on the Malak one, using the same animations. Nihilus' shadow still looks like Malak even :)).

This means that the model only has animations for fighting with a single-handed melee weapon against medium-sized humanoids. Using any other weapons, or fighting against small/large opponents will cause the creature to just stand idle visually (or be stuck in its previous animation until it does something it has animations for, in some cases).
