Hi all I am new to the forum. I was wondering how to make saber hilts. If any of you out there could give me a link or tell me how to it would be grately appreciated. Also, I had a problem with the JediMod ++2.2 hilt selector involving textures on teh sabers but I managed to find a post in this forum that explained how to fix it. (put the skin file in a fold called just Saber/ in the PK3) So I'm glad I figured that out it had me really frustrated. Anyway, if any of you could help me with making saber hilts I would appreciate it. Thanks.

First off, you need a program like gmax or Milkshape. Then some tuts. I need some saber tut's for Milkshape and gmax too, but I'll try and post a link to gmax so you can get it if you don't already have it.

Once you learn how to model the hilt itself (if you don't already know how), the following link is a great tutorial that tells you how to get it from MilkShape into JO.
