View Full Version : Black Saber...

I have heard that a black saber cannot be done. However, there is the saber mod on www.jediknightii.net that takes any color saber and put a dark core in the middle. If this can be done, why can't the glow be done like that?

Also, if someone could tell me what tools/editors I need JUST to make lightsabers and/or change their colors, I would really appreciate it.

quite simply, black cannot glow. glowing involves light, black is essentially the absence of light. JK2 uses a screen type effect to make the glows. its an addative shader.

anyway, thats the short explaination.

Yes, BUT, if you recall, the dark force boon (the thing in multiplayer that grants you all the dark force powers) has a shadowy effect around it when you have it. Can't that be done with a black saber???
