I've read a lot about this, but haven't found a good answer yet. Can someone give a concise answer about how to create custom saber colors? ie: which files to manipulate, etc...

I list the way it's done there... if that isn't enough for you, drop me a line.

That takes a lot of effort to do. Perhaps you could make a quick(ish) dollar from die-hard idiots and charge people to make them customised sabres to their exact desires?

I am sure some people would as their are stupid idiots buying diablo 2 items on ebay.

One of the many certaincies in life is no matter how stupid an idea is - someone will pay for it.

You can be the very first real-life lightsabre dealer!

I was hoping there would be a feature to make your own custom saber color in-game and others will also see it, sort of like banner in subspace and infantry. I personally see no point in custom models and saber colors if others can't see them.

Which is why we have the "allow downloading" option on servers...

@Kurgan : Agreed :)

and @ sithinator:
I wouldn't be too sure about that saber-mod arriving anytime soon. I really dug into the workings of the engine around the lightsabers and this is one hell of a mess.

If it was thoroughly sufficient to just replace some textures like I did, then it would be quite easy to make a mod, but the mean thing is that there are more aspects - I didn't choose 'cyan' out of pure whim... there is practically NO way of controlling a saber's trail color and floor glow. The default trail of the blue saber that I replaced hides this pretty good and matches the cyan, but for any other color... hard try.

The engine mechanics that are steering this are so well-hidden in one of the several game-dlls that I doubt anyone finding them by chance. I didn't as well, but there is simply no other spot they can be, they MUST be somewhere in there.

I'd LOVE to see such a mod, but I sure haven't got the slightest idea how that should work. :(

The closest to a black lightsabre you could get would be a blacklight I guess... But that is not really black... more of an extreamly dark purple...
