I have just finished my first two lightsaber hilts. Both of them work in game. Any questions or comments?

Some of the smoothing may look stupid, but that is just Lightwave screwing with me. They look fine in game.

I don't know if I am going to upload them right now or not. I was thinking about making a giant lightsaber pack with all of the lightsabers from Star Wars. I might just realease them one by one though.

I think I'll upload these two for download to Geocities and send them to jediknightii.net

i think that these 2 should be released and then we can keep an eye on your next work

And yes they are correctly sized. That was my main inspiration for the Mace Windu hilt. I downloaded on and it was way too big.

Bad boys don't get download links.

eh..I think you should work on your texturing a little bit better. Also, the obi-wan saber is just a tad inaccurate. If you want my obi-wan model so you can re-skin it, I'll send you the GLM.

Good windu though :P

yes the Obi-Wan saber hilt is not that correct, sry man, but i have to agree. I have a resin replica of the Obi saber so im very farmilar with it. And thw Mace hilt looks absolutly awsome, it would be better if u made them have more of a metal look, use shaders or what ever modlers call it. ;)

Niether can I. I don't understand why people use Geocities to link files. Its just plain stupidity if you ask me. Why is it that people can master modeling but when it comes to simple website/internet use they dont get the message through their heads that GEOCITIES BLOWS!

if you ask me than I'd tell you you guys are really stupid, just drag the link on the ->GO button, how simple, or have you tried the very hard copy and paste method ? sheesh!!

before bashing someone look in the mirror :evanpiel:

Kit Fisto: Thank you for visiting my thread.

I have happily removed those geocities download links that make me so stupid. If you decide to be a big boy, maybe you can download them from Jedi Knight ii.net when they get around to posting them.

Which ever one of you said that you had a resin replica of Obi Wan's saber, well, do you have a scanner or a digital camera? I think you know where I'm going with this. If I can find any good reference pictures, I will do all I can to make it accurate, but as it is, there are not many that I can find.

Then again, when it comes to the internet, I'm stupid aren't I?

It wasnt targeted just at you, it was targeted at the internet using public in general. Geocities is just plain crap. Im sure your models are great, but because you fell into the trap that is Geocities I cant tell because the links dont work.

It wasnt meant to be insulting (sorry), I just hate it when I cant access peoples work due to dodgy hosts like geocities. And btw, cutting and pasting/removing the http:// doesnt work. Something has happened to the files.

Ok then, Kit, I uploaded the pics to a new server that a buddy told me about.

Ok I have just found a good reference pic of Obi Wan's lightsaber, and I agree, mine isn't very good. I'm redoing it.

look, why don't you just tell me your email and I'll send you the GLM for obi's saber? Then you can reskin or remodel it to your heart's content?

What I don't understand is why is everyone worried about making two different obi-wan kenobi lightsabers ep1 and ep2 sabers are the same saber. don't believe me? check this site.

You see, I want it to be MY model. I want to make it.

And yeah, I know that he has the same lightsaber in both movies. It's just everyone refers to that saber as Obi Wan's Padawan Saber.

Why must I be forced to say this so darned often, the Ep1 and Ep2 sabres are NOT the same, there are minute differences.
Hey Chrono, you interested in unwrapping an obi-wan sabre I made, its way accurate, just a wee too hard for me to do it without getting frustrated and burning my computer...

Yes, they are NOT the same sabers, EP2 and EP1 hilts have small diffeneces, but i dont think it is something u would ntoice while ur playing. i dont think some one would stop and say "hey this saber looks metal ot me, awwww man this isn't the EP2 saber, its not more chrom looking! im gonna have to bust a cap now!"

MeLoN

I re-did the parts of my Obi Wan lightsaber that I found to be inaccurate. I now have to re-do some of the skin. Then I will post it again and see what you all think.

MeLoN
07-20-2002, 12:24 PM
Ok they are minorly different. It's like saying Luke has a different saber in ANH and ESB. Of course it is slightly different, but unless you really look for the differences, you can't really see them.

And back on topic, I am also going to re-do the metal on Mace Windu's lightsaber. I am going to use the same metal as I used on Obi Wan's because it looks more chromish. I don't know how to do shaders or I would.

If I may:

The top part of Obi-Wan's hilt flares out just a little. Other than that, looks great!

MeLoN

I really need some good reference pics of the top part of Obi Wan's saber if I want to get this right. I can't really find any good ones.

MeLoN

Ok I think I have a fairly accurate model now. I will work on the skin then post a shot.

Thank you very much Mandalorian.

Ok, now that I got some good reference pictures, I went to work on this model.
