Ok, I know i dont have any pics yet, but I am just about to leave to see Signs and I wanted some feedback, I need some more refrence pics so I can fit in the details on the model, I have everything done from the sabre shown on thelightsaber.com so far. I request that the mods dont close this because I will post pics as soon as im back from the movie. :D

OK, ive just finished the skin. Heres a pic, also, the black stripe has the same design on the back, mostly because I didnt feel like cylinder UVWmapping it, but if you guys think its a major problem I can redo the UVWMap and fix that.

Edit: Eek,I noticed a modelling error, I guess I have to re-UVWmap it anyway, ill try that tomorrow though as I am a bit tired :D

See if you can get the people over at the Jedi Mod hilts in progress thread thingy to get your Obi-Wan and Trebor Coleman sabers mod compatible if you possibly can. I'd appreciate it.

I finally finished skinning it and everything, but i noticed a small error, somehow, the UVWmap is errored and its adding over 300 extra vertices to the model. I dont have a clue on how to fix it and I dont have aspirations of starting over, if someone could tell me any fix for this I would be appreciative.

Master Shawn, i love the hilts you make. But when you made your AOTC Obi Hilt, how did you make it my.... well...shiney?

Master Shawn, i love the hilts you make. But when you made your AOTC Obi Hilt, how did you make it my.... well...shiney? or glossy?

I used Fireworks4 to make a metal texture, you can add lighter colors into the silver to make it appear shiny and glossy.

08-07-2002, 04:26 PM
Bingo! thats the key word i need to hear "Lighting Effects" THANKYOU Shawn and i hope other people realise how great your models r.

08-07-2002, 04:28 PM
oops you said "lighter colors" not "lighting effecfs" but You popped an important word in my head so ill try it anyway :p

I finally came to a hopeful solution, im UVWmapping each half seperate, the bottom half is cylindrical, and the top is planar. THis should put me just under the vertices limit :D

Master Shawn

Ok, here it is, 100% done :D

Tell me what you think and I will release it for download.

Looks good to me. I say it's ready for release :D.

Mr Tim

Agreed - it looks fantastic.

When you release it though, please make sure that it's compatible with JediMod.

Keep up the good work

As stated before, I have no clue on how to make it mod compatible as I dont use it. If you can tell me who to contact about it, maybe I will.

You should contact quamosity or darth nasty for mod compatible hilts. They can probably help you.
