View Full Version : Exar Kun's lightsaber handle

05-01-2002, 06:18 PM
Well, since i can't figure out the BS with the player model stuff, I took a break and made Exar Kun's lightsaber...it comes in at a semi-heavy 800 faces, but oh well...not skinned yet, either, of course...


I'll prolly end up redoing it to cut down on the polycount, but lemme know what you think...

not bad but it looks double bladed.. so u hould make it longer...

Very nice. You can probably cut alot of polys out on the center black piece, unless that's a bump map.

Well, yeah, it is double bladed, but only meant to be one handed. I based it off this pic so it should be very accurate, except it doesn't have the little rings around the blade emitters:

No, it's not a bump map...I did try getting rid of those raised parts, which are part of the mesh, but it only dropped it by about 100 faces..

I thought Exar Kun's lightsaber was a normal one that had the ability to extend its length, not a double bladed one.

Nay, my friend. It was both double bladed, (as evidenced when he killed one of his mentors) and had the ability to extend itself as well.

Little bit of an update...got the skin done, but it's kinda bland...may work on it some more, but i dunno...no real use in it, since having a double bladed saber is impossible right now (as in, an actual mod and not the destroyer cheat)...

oh, I also got rid of the 'ribbed' handle, and cut off 100 or so faces, so it's down to 700 faces now...having the ribbed handle on the mesh was a waste anyways, since the skin is so dark it wouldn't be noticable..

put some contrast in...know you said it was bland, and its probably temp...but that would make it look a bit better i think...anyway, looks like a cool model
