As my first mod fully completed for release, I present to you the Balance of the Spirit lightsaber.

This lightsaber has special effects on power crystals, similar to the HotG and the MotF. As I saw it the HotG was meant for Guardians and the MotF was meant for Consulars. So I made one that takes a bit from each side as the Sentinel equivalent to the HotG and the MotF. I tried to keep it as similar in power levels to the HotG and the MotF as possible, but I might have gone stronger or weaker on some crystals. Without power crystals it's just a recolored Lightsaber/Double-Bladed Lightsaber/Short Lightsaber

The blade is as close to TSL's Viridian lightsaber as I could estimate without being able to directly compare the two, and the hilt uses the game's standard hilt models and textures.

* It isn't restricted to Light Side in the BotS Lightsabers
** I don't know if you can get a Rough-cut Upari Amulet through normal playing, I always end up using KSE to get it.

It uses upcrystals.2da and model/skin 10, so I doubt its compatible with many other lightsaber mods, but I plan on making it compatible once I'm comfortable enough with this stuff to change it's model variation number. Or if no other current mods use variation 10(not likely), I'll make a compatible version of the upcrystals.2da as soon as I have a list of lightsaber mods and the files they use(or an upcrystals.2da that is already compatible with all of the other ones)

Oh, and if somebody happens to think up a better item description for the crystal I'm all ears. I just kind of re-fitted the HotG crystal's description.

Oooh this sounds neat, I would love to use it as I tend to go Sentinel in my play throughs, but I do have a few saber mods, and a compatible mod would be the best!
