The other day i started editing the animations.cfg file because i would like to replace the stances from the game and already found a few that i really like, so i started to think that if i find these cool maybe there are other ppl who might also like, thats when i had the idea of making my own mod for stances.
But first i will post pics here of the better ones so all of you can tell me which ones you like the most, u can also make suggestions like "that stance would fit well in red stance".
Ok these are the first ones...

I just found a new stance and its easily one of my favorites now, because when u turn the saber on he does a cool animation and than positions the saber. Iam also adding a feature i saw in a mod called mace stances, now u can see ur character breath in multiplayer just like single player and when u turn off the saber he looks around this definetly gives more life to multiplayer i think

i like stance 7, looks like the stance anakin uses in ep2.
seems to me it would be a red or yellow stance.

you definetly have to release these.

also would it be possible to have a stance with the lightsaber reversed in the grip so the blade is pointing out from the bottom of the hand?

SoHei, you must teach me. I could really use custom stances for my model. Could you imagine flipping through stances to have Lion-O swing the sword of omens as it grows like in the cartoon "Thunder (swoosh) Thunder (Swhoosh) Thunder (Swoosh) Thundercats! HOOOOOOOO!! :)

That would be interesting...Another idea is Sariss' stance from JK1, where the ready position consists of the blade pointing backwards, parallel to the ground, and she swings the blade up and out for blocks/strikes.

Ok i will see if i can add saber stances like those u both suggested :)
No problem Psynex i can tell u how i did the ones i have, its not difficult at all its all a matter of editing the animations.cfg, iam really surprised that there are so few custom stances out there, but first i have to finish this mod, it wont take long, then i will have time to answer ur questions ;)

No prob as soon as its released u can use the mod for whatever u want.
As for the Ui script i dont know anything about that, never messed with it :(

when can we expect this excellent mod? I have often wondered myself why there aren't many custom saber stances out there. Anyway, how were you planning to package this mod? you have over 10 saber stances here and there are only 5 ingame (just wondering).

Iam thinking of putting more than one .pk3 in the zip file. ppl will only have to choose which pack they like the most :)
As for the release it wont take long. :cool:

I started out my modding life, by changeing around animation, but wasnt the yellow stance hard coded? and have you figured out which ones are the saber moves?

yellow isn't hard coded, you can change all of them

Is there a way to limit the stances accessable in-game to a select few (say, 3)? I found cycling through even 5 to be really annoying. This also makes sense given that each jedi has his/her own fighting style.

well, i usually like to play on force level 5 but if you want to limit the saber stances to 3 jus play singleplayer or multiplayer normally, or use force level 4. if you still want to play on level 5 but only want the 3 stances i can't help you. you'd have to talk to a more experienced modder than me.

wow... those are pretty kool. cept i wouldnt "overdo" it. i mean dont put weird stances like holding the saber way out to the side... i mean that doesnt make n e sense now does it? :o

WOW! :eek:

These are all amazing. My personal favs are all of your animated gif stances, 2, 3, 4, and 7.

You might see if you can get an underhand stance to work, like Adi Gallia has in Jedi Power Battles (PSX and Dreamcast).

Do these stances replace old ones, or can they be added to the old ones?

Very snazzy work there, some of those stances look very samurai-ish :), I'll definitely check these out when you release a mod.

There was a mod shown on www.jk2files.com, with a reversed saber...don't know what came of it....
