i Swear....

Looks good man.

07-30-2002, 06:56 PM
It's fairly good... Some errors in the mesh.... and the skin needs a definate second pass.

Make the skin look chrome, and add some highlights to it. Its a pretty good model though.

There's a website some where that has some very good screenshots of it.... I don't recall what it is though.

The correct spelling is sabre, its in the SW credits. And im not redoing the skin, if you dont like it, I dont care, it took me over a month to build it and im satisfied. If you want to redo the skin and mesh, be my guest.

07-30-2002, 07:09 PM
shawn, the mesh is fine, the skin itself looks a bit cartoonish though. I would suggest at least doing a more realistic looking skin, that's all the criticism I have. Otherwise, great model!

07-30-2002, 09:33 PM
Ha, I really care less, "Shawn".

I made my Obi Wan saber hilt in about 3 days.

I was just telling you that the model has a few errors, size wise on a few areas and the black part in the center is slightly erronous.

It would be very good if you gave the skin some highlights and made it chrome.... The model is excellent except for a few areas.

07-30-2002, 11:15 PM
i agree......this model could use a little work....ive definately seen better

Nobody said you had to download it bitch. You dont like it, good for you, not my god damn problem, you want a new skin, do it your ####ing self. I'm happy with it, I looked at many up-close pictures, I modelled as close as I could to the pictures with my modelling knowledge, and if you dont think its good enough, dont come to me, go make your own.

07-30-2002, 11:42 PM
i already have...with alot of help from MeLoN..thanks by the way.

and it turned out great

theres no need to be a d!ck about it, you ASKED for feedback and how people of it, and when you dont hear what you want, you flip out and go apesh1t on us. you just need to learn to take things in stride, and just take constructive criticism, just relax, i think you did a good job, i use your hilt in game.

This is my best work, I am not redoing it cause I can't do any better with the skin. And where in my post did I ask for feedback?

I think it sucks, maybe one of the worst "sabres" there is, I wouldn't even download it, the skin sucks too, over month ? I bet you spent 24/7 on it too, HAHAH, you have no skill, my dog poops better #### then this......and I posted here because I wanted to, you don't like what I'm saying ? don't read it, don't reply to it, don't breath..close your eyes, you're not reading this

how is that for constructive feedback ?

yes, I think it was the sound of us modelers packing up and leaving the thread because you can't take constructive criticism.

You need to work on the skin. Sorry, it's a fact. It looks too much like a cartoony reboot-version of his lightsaber. I'm sure it took you a while to do, and I'm not arguing that the model is not your best, it definitely is the best I've seen from your collection. Your skin, however, is totally inaccurate for his lightsaber. True, we don't have to download it, but then again, neither do the 4000 other people that download mine and melon's every day.

Yo master fudge packer, I am just a someone walking by and overseeing the little dispute. Sure Release it if u want to, it will become just another one of those downloads that people say cool about til they use it. 5 Mins later it will be in the recycle bin. Listen to these guys, they r only trying to make your saber look better, and if u cant skin for s**t, ask them to help you out, not to f**k off.

Hes right......

Holy crapola that skin is horrible

07-31-2002, 11:56 AM
ok, everyone who says it sucks, just shut up. Yes, its not the greatest model ever, but BIG DEAL! I cant do any better and neither can mostly anyone on this thread, so i nor them have any right to say it sucks. yes, it does need another skinning job, but thats it! i could never even hope to get that far. keep up the good work.

07-31-2002, 12:00 PM
Lets cool our jets or close this thread. There is no need to resort to using expletives.

07-31-2002, 12:06 PM
i dont even know what expletives are!

In case you didn't notice, I'd say more than 60% of the people who posted in this thread have released sabers, and are probably some of the most respected up-and-coming modelers here.

Yes, this includes myself...so rather than say **** you when people said my skins sucked (it has happened, it happened to all of us when we started) I have been learning how to make better skins.

I have every right to say it sucks, because in case you didn't tell, the skin is absolutely horrible. Way too cartoonish in detail, and no visible bump-mapping detail at all. This isn't a rant, this is fact. His model is great, no one is arguing that. In case you haven't been reading close enough, the skin is what needs work. It's very easy to ask someone to do a skin for you, as I did one for Adonai on our Mace Windu hilt.

The problem is, no one that cares is going to be willing to help Shawn if he continues with this attitude, because rather than swallow his pride and accept that he needs a better skin he wants to push forward like his work was the second coming of christ.

I regret releasing this, I built it for myself, I like it. Will you just stop complaining about the skin, if you don't like it, open the pk3, take out the skin file, and do it yourself. If you're so good with skins, why dont you just shut the hell up and do it yourself, think about it.

07-31-2002, 01:55 PM
Well, when you say "build your own" I will have you know that I DID. And it looks pretty much identical to Obi Wan's saber. You can use it when the Attack of the Clones Total Conversion is released.

Chill out... I was just trying to help you. And I wont download it, because I have mine, which is better.

Why don't you make your's look better than mine?

And if you're using Milkshape, I would reconsider.

Master Shawn
07-31-2002, 02:16 PM
I dont, I use Gmax, and of course you think yours is better. If you must know, the model I made has 996 vertices, 4 below the limit. I cant modify this sabre in any way because its at its best right now.

07-31-2002, 03:16 PM
If that model has THAT many vertices, then you must not know what you're doing. A model like that should NO WAY have that many vertices.

There are parts of the mesh that are simply incorrect. That's all there is to it.. It has nothing to do with detail.. It's simply incorrect. And the skin is fairl atrocious.

dude, he has a point, rofl, but if u have a powerful pc, im sure it makes no difference to you.
