ive modifed(skinned) a saber handle but i want to assign it to an individual custom character.
under the weapons directory luke and reborn have their own sabers.
what do i do to assign the saber to my character only?
p.s. this is for a multiplayer charcter

i dont think its possible. as far as i know the saber is coded to go to different models, like the saber_reborn saber model goes to reborns AND tavion, that would make me assume that its not a simple matter of making a new folder called saber_<your characters name>.

I'm sure it's entirely possible, though it would require re-coding some stuff. You might want to ask this question in the Coding forum. I personally would love to see a Mod that includes the ability of simply creating a Saber_CharacterName folder with all the files and having it automatically be used by that character (ie, a model/skin in a BobDole folder would automatically use either a generic saber, or if available, a saber located in saber_BobDole). I'm willing to bet it can be done by one of those guys in the Coding forum :)

thanks. i didn't realise this wasn't currently "do-able". I have posted a request in the coding forum

apparently..........


Darth_Syrup:
"someone already made a spectacular mod that does that.
You can download the newest version of it right here:

Dest (the author) included Remark's hiltpack with it, and they set a standard for hilts to be selectable."

with jedimod you can assign lightsaber hilts to individual bots

but i dont think it is possible to do it in single player yet.
(except for replacements for luke, desann, reborn)

well i want to be able to assign the new hilt for a charcter i have created to play on multiplayer.
i think the jedi mod just assigns them to existing charcters and doesnt let you do it yourself.

if you open up the jedimod pk3 and edit the bots.txt you can add entries for new characters and what sabers they should use
