As above. I would like to use a couple of the USM hilts with a cyan and silver blades. How does one change the blade color assigned to a hilt model?

Thanks in advance

Well, you look with kotor tool in the texture part the lightsaber texture, named something like "w_lsabre(4 letters of a color)01" you pick your color blade, reskin it, and your blade should have a new color ^^

What you need to do, is get one of the saber blade textures as mentioned above, change the colour in Photoshop and save it with a new name. This should be something like w_lsabre****01.tga. (The **** should be replaced with something unique, which is 4 letters long.

Then using a Hex Editor, open the .mdl for your lightsaber and replace the texture name with that of your new texture. If the original lightsaber model you extracted from the game was w_lghtsbr_01.mdl, you'll need to replace all 4 instances of w_lsabreblue01 in the mdl file. (For double sabers, you replace 8).

This is a quick and rushed little tutorial, but you shouldn't have any problems with it...

Let me know if you need anything explained in more detail. :)
