These are some screenshots of a new saber that I will introducing to the modding community at PCGM. They are called Heart of the Force Sabers and they will be released as a companion to my Spirit of the Force Robe and Spectre of the Force Robe seen in the pics. The mod is almost complete. I am awaiting RedHawke's approval upon completion of his beta test. When it is released, I will post a notice in Taris Uppercity Emporium. Please give me your opinion of this mod.

As a taste of what is here, this is a "Readers' Digest" version of my README.txt.

Short explanation of specific Heart of the Force Sabers:

The "Heart of the Force" sabers have extended length blades (longer than regular, but shorter than Malak's) and come in 6 different color combinations. The hilts have an animated texture that makes the clear windows "pulse" with the energies contained within.

Bright Orange - inspired by the Heart of the Guardian color from K1, this saber has a totally yellow-orange core (no white) surrounded by a hot red-orange glow.

Blacklight - inspired by the black sabers that I have seen released for K1 (and maybe also for TSL). I thought the notion of a black saber was ridiculous, since light isn't black, so I created the closest color combination I could to resemble UV blacklight party lights. Unfortunately, there is no way to make things in its vicinity glow bright when it is ignited.

Sith Red - the blade color texture here belongs to RedHawke. It was borrowed from the RedHawke saber that came with the recruitable PC for K1 by the same name. I always liked its brighter red color.

Silver - nothing spectacular here. It is just one of the sabers because it is one of my favorite colors for them.

Degobah Green - a green blade with a very faint yellow core. It has the same stats as the Jedi Master Prestige Class Saber produced by Maverick187 & RedHawke, but the blade is distinctly different.

Weaponmaster Blue-green - The same color and stats as the Jedi Weaponmaster Prestige Class Saber produced by Maverick187 & RedHawke. I included it because it is one of my all time favorite saber colors!

High praise and ultimate thanks are due to oldflash for creating the model for the "Heart of the Force" Sabers. You are a saint!

Very special thanks to RedHawke for everything he did to make this mod possible (there is simply too much to list).

Thanks to Maverick187 for the inspiration from the Prestige Class Sabers.

And thanks to Fred Tetra for creating the awesome and simple to use kotor editing tool.

OK! I got an opinion... There needs to be more actual Ranch dressing flavor on Cool Ranch Doritos... :xp:

What were we talking about again?

Seriously though MdK, you should really copy the majority of this post into your release post. Because this post slightly altered makes a kickarse release post, with them screenies and all. Just a thought! :D

Thanks for the comments guys! I was wondering why noone was giving their opinions in my release thread in Taris Upper City Emporium...now I see why.

By the way, Fuu, what are you talking about Viridian on Blue? Are you refering to the Weaponmaster saber (the one that Atton in holding in the 3rd screenshot)? If so, that wasn't my idea. It was a part of the Prestige Class Saber mod that RedHawke and Maverick187 release some months ago.
