well until someone offers to skin it that is the end.

Well, I definatly like the saber. It looks possible to hold in your hand without cutting yourself on blades, rings and gizmos. :D

I would skin it, but i have no idea how to use shaders for the shiny effect :(. If any body will teach me, ill do it.

Skinning models is a problem to a lot of people. I don't know anything about shaders either. I just use the brighten/darken tool to create fake ones. They aren't nearly as good of course.

We should have a small library of nothing but mechanical textures that would be useful to skin sabers with. Things like the grip ring, grooves, and other features that just aren't easy to skin.
