Sorry to say, but that looks to skinny the ring under the emiter is too small make it a little bit bigger. I dont see nothing worng with the models that are out there already out there, just cant see the activator button. and is it ok to go over the 1000 poly count? to say 1990?

edit - forget about it... i changed it to be nicer. ya happy kids?

08-02-2002, 04:05 PM
are there other Luke sabers cause i checked in the files section and it didnt look like it there was only the one raven created which was really low low poly and not detailed

08-02-2002, 04:10 PM
well do you kno if you can exceed the poly count of 1000??

08-02-2002, 04:19 PM
What does everybody else think? Oh and i enlarged the little activator button on the side cause it was too small, here is a pic of the actual saber:


08-02-2002, 04:29 PM
i kno what it looks like. i use Garcia's plans to make my model. how do you make it so the poly count isnt so friggin high?

08-02-2002, 04:37 PM
Dude i was posting that pic for the benefit of everyone to see what the thing looks like not for you, as this thread is for everyone when i say "What does EVERYONE think".

08-02-2002, 04:41 PM
ya but is anyone posting saying what they think? no, just me.

08-02-2002, 04:51 PM
Dude you are a real di*k man. I am trying to get other peoples opinions and you come in here, say your model is better then man then expect me to help you, get someone else to help you, i said criticism(which being too skinny was) but saying your model was better that is just an insult, now i am trying to get other peoples opinions and you say well i already know what it looks like as if this thread was exclusive to you just becasue no one else has posted in it, that is why i posted "well what does everyone else think?" you seem to be like this in everyone of the threads you post in man, it doesnt seem very many people like you and you know what i am not liking you very much right now either. So what does everybody else think :)

08-02-2002, 05:02 PM
dude, i HAD a model, i said "+ i think mine looked better" so how is that insulting, i was showing my opinion:OP and another thing, i bet you are no taller then 5'10'' with blonde hair, you got kind of a prissy attitude, you take karate, and .... you are 15 but you look 10. am i right?

edit - fact: your model is SKINNY

08-02-2002, 05:07 PM
you dont need to sh-t your pants cause of what my opinion is. it's an opinion, i gave you a - comment, dont think that everone is ganna like your saber:OP course you're going to be getting some bad commentary on it.

08-02-2002, 05:09 PM
Ok well right i acknowledge you had a model, that wasnt released, people have models all the time that arent released that doesnt give you some special precident over mine. I thank you for telling me that it was skinny as i said it was criticism and that was the constructive kind.And i also realize that not everoyne will like my lightsaber, that everyone has there own opinions and i am sure if someone does nt like my saber they will say something like "i dont really like it because...". Now you insulted me by saying outright that your's was better, i mean just "it looks skinny mine is better" that was it. I consider taht an insult ( not the skinny part that is criticism) and i am sure if that was the first post you got you would feel somewhat insulted too, know i am not even gonna comment on the personal attack you made which was extremly immature. Oh and i would really like to hear from some other people this hs gotten really off track so what do some other people think about my model, remember to copy paste the link.

08-02-2002, 05:11 PM
ah hahahahaha :lol: oh man... woooo hahahaha. but dude, watch the movie, and look at your saber. easly your is skinnier. its a fact, live with it.

08-02-2002, 05:20 PM
thanx man

08-02-2002, 05:53 PM
Personally i think the model looks great it is a tad bit skinny, but it looks worlds better than the original included in the game i just hope the skin will bring it to perfection.

08-02-2002, 06:13 PM
K i made it a little fatter and enlarged the button,

Looks great man! Keep up the good work

08-02-2002, 06:40 PM
Well, i can see why lyger is pissed. So would you after no one helping you and telling you you're a noob when you ask a decent question. Can anyoen actually answer, is there aw ay to make the poly coutn go over 1000?

08-02-2002, 06:53 PM

The model looks fine. It was a little thin but just put a skin on that baby and get it in-game and you should be good to go.

Lyger, yes of course you can go over 1000 polys when modeling a saber. The question is, why would you need to make a 2000 poly saber? You'll only be making the game unplayable for those with low-end machines. That's why it's a rule-of-thumb to keep it below 1000, it won't crash your machine like 1000 vertices will.

And Mr. Blonde, don't pay too much attention to Lyger's criticism, he only just started modeling after being told he needed to - because he was being difficult with veteran modelers.

And terminator, the reason why everyone is being so "mean" to Lyger is because all he's done up to this point is harshly criticize other people's work when he himself has nothing to show for.

Well i have been playing with making the skin and keep messing up so i decided to see what it looked like in game anyway(no skin) and have a pic tell me what you think, i am continuing to make the skin as of right now though PS Pic is kinda blurry so you cant make out great details.

move the hilt a tad further down on his hand. Great sizing job though. I just got my first model exported through gmax, so now I'm practically unstoppable once again (from making weapons models).

Man...people are going to see this saber and they are going to love it...

And this i know because a couple of people have seen it and they love it already. ^_^

08-03-2002, 02:40 AM
you know what, i ought to bitch slap all of you. but im too good for that, so have a nice life. im sure i can figure this stuff out on my own:OP(yeah with alot of frusteration at the end:p)but yeah, since you guys dont seem to like me that much ill just leave you all alone. so i bid you farewell. altho ill still come back for some tips and hints:D

08-03-2002, 02:51 AM
OK FINE JEEZ!!! I WAS JEALOUS!! AHHH HAHAHAHA:cry6: it looked so good *sniff* i had to make it mine, i appologize Mr Blonde. great work :cry6: now i shal leave in peace

08-03-2002, 06:09 AM
well,back to the topic

WOW this looks so good!!! as a Luke fan i was always a little disappointed that all the other saber-hilts were done and Luke only had this low-quality saber hilt that was already in game.
glad to see you are doing this one, and it looks very nice, almost perect!!! just one thing: make the player model grap the hilt a little lower, not much, just a little.
and i hope that the skin will do this model justice! great work!

Well, since your such the self appointed expert on finding fault with others work. learning on your own should be easy for someone so "all knowing" such as yourself. :D

08-03-2002, 11:25 AM
Chrono- i agree with EVERYTHING you said about that arogant Lyger. I dont know why he keeps trying to pump the community for Tips when all he does is critisize other people's work and then try to make peace before he left the post, crying like a baby:D
You are a very good saber modeler and should be respected, not disrespected from an arrogant, newbie at modeling who probly has a high post count cause he goes around saying things like that to other people without actually helping them.

Well, on to the topic at hand:p Great model Mr Blonde. What program are you using and how did you make the Grip near the emitter?

08-03-2002, 02:28 PM
Thanx guys, im using Max 4.2 and the whole model is comprised of cylinders except the spikey things at the bottom, if you meean the groovy thing near the activator button, i made a cylinder and then i selcted verticies in like every other row and did a uniform scal on each row so it went in and out, if i could have added more polys it would look better but i tried to keep each "ring" that comes out there so i think there is like 9 and there is 9 on the real one too.

08-03-2002, 02:31 PM
thanks, well , anyway great job on the saber and dont let Lyger get to you;)

08-03-2002, 03:39 PM
Hi Mr. Blonde

definately looks good, here's a reference pic so that you can check your model against the size of others and the detail against the luke saber.


08-03-2002, 04:42 PM
oh yeah now who's the #######s? i apologize and you guys still give me sh-t. wow you guys really follow your own rules:OP

08-10-2002, 10:38 AM
