Hello there. I would like to announce that I will try to make a Ultimate Saber Mod for KotOR. I have about seven custom hilt right now and I am starting to re skin them. If you would like to help just PM them to me and I will give you credit when it is finished. Some jobs that I need help with are:
Scripting them into the game
andMore saber hilts.

Greetings, Darth Ravage, and welcome to Holowan! Since you are doing this mod, I'd like to let you know a few things:

a) There is a mod out that gives party members and major characters unique appearances for their weaponry. It's called Weapons of the Old Republic. If you haven't already played it, I recommend you do. Some of the unique weapon appearances are lightsabers, but that does not mean all lightsabers.

b) {Snip} Not a place to critique the original USM Mod, you don't like it we get it, but this isn't the place for it as this is off topic for this thread. -RH

Anyway, that's my two cents. Hope it helps!

Lord of Hunger

If you have an issue with a mod call do it via PM's any public attempts will simply be deleted. -RH

You should throw some screenshots up for us to see.

Sounds like a great idea, probably end up downloading it.

I wouldn't call it USM for K1. That will make people think it's by the USM team (or sanctioned by them). You should pick an original name for it.

Well, two things.
1) I have some Saber Ideas that could work well... I would need them to be made, but I could PM you a Drawing
2) I think this was kind of done by WoTOR, BUt I could be wrong.

meh.. I say keep it. Not only does it fit.. but people looking for LotRO (Lords of the Ring Online) stuff may make a typo and stumble upon your mod.. brilliant marketing.. hehehe

I can't really help with the mod, but you are more than welcome to use any of the sabers models I've made for the games, if you want. I can't (and won't) speak for the other USM'ers, but you can at least use my share :)

- Segan Wyndh Sabers (http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?t=143224) (& USM)
- Xia Terashai Sabers (http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?t=144028) (& USM)
- BA-122 Prototype Saber (USM)
- Disciple's Agenda Saber (USM)
- Zez Kai Ell's Double-Saber (USM)
- Darksword (http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?t=147229) (not really a traditional lightsaber, but something different you can mess around with ;) )

If you need any of the resources (.psd and such) just drop me a PM. Good luck with the mod! :D

p.s. offer extends to anyone that wishes to use the models (K1 or K2). Getting too old to be stingy with my mods.. hehehe

Lightsabers of the Old Republic sounds fine to me. You might want to ask a mod to rename the thread.

I have an idea for this mod

I was thinking that since all lightsabers are unique your character could get his/her own hilt, there could be a double and single blade design, you could talk to Zahr like normal and get a single bladed hilt, then a footlocker could appear that has a double balded hilt, that way the PC could have it's double-bladed design and two of it's single bladed design.

I'm pretty sure there's already a mod that does that.

Already one out there called Lightsaber Choices (http://knightsoftheoldrepublic.filefront.com/file/Lightsaber_Choices;85978).

Sorry,

the only reason I mentioned picking your style was because when I thought that the main character should get his/her hilt design I figured they should beable to have a unique design wether they had a single-bladed, or double-bladed or dual-lightsabers, instead of using a hilt design found in the game, so you can use the style you want.

Sorry, after reading my suggestion it did seem like I was talking about the choice between a single-balded, double-bladed, or dual lightsabers.

Just started modelling a Vader/Malak saber for some creativity.

It would be cool if you do it but I'm afraid I can't help you with it.
Good Luck!:)

Big setback. My computer stuffed up and I lost all my progress, but I did save them on a disk so I just have to buy a new computer and reinstall everything. ps. If your wondering if my computers busted then how am I posting this .The answer is I'm at my friends house.

That's rough man. Hope you didn't lose too much of anything. Take your time to regroup buddy. It's the May long weekend, so relax a little. :thmbup1:

Unless the hard drive was physically destroyed, it is likely that some or all of your data is recoverable.

Ouch! But DarthParametric is right. You can't use the HDD for its operating system once you change your motherboard to a different one but you can still slave it and access its data.
I'm assuming you had a motherboard meltdown, usually meant by "have to buy another computer"

Ok. I took a break from modding for a while due to school but now im back and out of ideas. you guys got any ideas?

How about a fire lightsaber? Or even a Icelightsaber? These ideas have long haunted me through the head or the lightsabers there already? Among the many lightsaber mods I am a little confused.

I hope this idea will help you something.

Well, I have always felt that the HoG looks a little fiery and that the MoF looks a little icey... you could start with those color crystals as color bases for your saber... as for FX in the blade, that may be a little difficult for even an advanced modder, although I think Kaurora maybe able to handle some emitter stuff. Way above my head there, but back to Fire/Ice sabers (an idea I like, nice one QoN!)...

a little recolor on those crystals, a unique hilt, and some cool properties, and BLAM - Fire/Ice sabers. My part is done, you get to do the hard stuff now :lol:
