Subtler Lightsaber Blades
=========================

Description
-----------
This mod thins out the lightsaber blades provided with the game,
first by reducing the size of the "core", and second by making the
"aura" a lot dimmer and more ragged.

------------

Quite nice; I prefer the original trilogy style lightsabers to the later lightbatons of the prequels.

I think it's the other way around.

I think it's the other way around.In the original obi wan/vader fight, I remember the lightsabers looking more like actual sabers (without the aura) than to something like obi wan vs maul. http://images.artistdirect.com/Images/nad/video/tribune/19372/19372_ae.jpg
Of course George could have changed this since then. :swear:

ANH does have a smaller aura, but the rest of the series don't. Specially in RotJ, in which both the aura and the core are huge.

I was also going to say that these reminded me of the sabers from ANH. Nice touch :)

\well of course they work on tsl they are just a texture for an item in both games. Great mod! can you do it so the hilt bigger blade bigger, and is there a way to do this for guns. Maybe pm me?
