Hey all,

Been working on a lightsabre based around that of Anakin Skywalker in Attack of the Clones - the story is that the mesh is VERY nearly finished, but needs UVMapping and a Skin - anyone want this mesh, in 3ds format, it's up for grabs - happy to do some tweaking of the model if anyone would rather JUST skin it, but i haven't got time to do the skinning cuz of exams (:(). Anyway here's the mesh as it is - hoping that i'll get some feedback, sort it out and then pass it on to someone for skinning.


it's not lit very well as this post is a bit of a rush job to get it out there, but see what you think.

wow looks great so far, hope some one skins it for you.

Now, correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't Anakin's hilt look just like Vader's?

Yeah, its similar. But its more like the one that he will eventually build and that he will leave behind for Luke in ANH.

Thanks for the feedback,

yeah exams are coming to a close now so i'm working on it a bit more, i'll have a little update tomorrow probably, with most of the controls added. Basically it just needs a few tweaks to be more accurate, and some of the details modelling in... looking back at that screenie it is VERY badly lit!!! i'll sort myself out and give you a proper one soon.

thanks again


p.s. No, from what i can see anakin's saber in episode two is not the same as vaders in the classic trilogy - the reason i'm making this saber is purely because i love the way it looks, and felt like adding something to the JK community, because i haven't really added anything yet.

There are a number of design differences between Anakin's and Vader's Lightsabers but they do share the same basic design.

Anakin's Lightsaber:



ROTJ Lightsabers (Vader's Bottom Image):

Wow, they are actually similar! My point was justified! I WASN'T WRONG!

Very cool lightsaber hilt.

I think it will be pretty impressive when it is finished, just a question though, I've seen to length of the current Anakin and Vader saber hilts at modcentral and they looked smaller then the one you are developing.

Still, finish it if you can! :rhett:
