View Full Version : Sabers

Just curious, are you guys gonna tweak the saber glows to be smoother (like Perfect Ep II Sabers) and smoothen the trails?

Nah, I don't even really see what all the complaining is about.

If you look at the sabers thru True View, you'll see that the glow is very lumpy. I think Raven didn't blur it enough..

imo smoothening the saber glow will give an awesome experience for true view fans like me :D

We'll see. We're probably going to fix the gfx to look more movielike but we haven't considered if the saber effects will be included in that.

If you're going for movie accuracy, the lightsabers are definetly something that needs work.

Here are the ones i'm working on, maybe just to give you some inspiration, or a sense of direction if nothing else...

I'm not quite finished with the saber trail as some of the edges still need smoothing out...but, overall i like how they turned out.

The ones Raven did are ass :D

hmmm. Looks good but those are small screenies. You interested in doing some gfx work for MotF or the community in general?

Hmm...not really, i have enough of my own things to work on. But i'd be willing to share some of my work, if you really wanted..provided i got something in exchange for it.

Maybe, depends on what Scarlett wants for whatever he's got.

04-10-2003, 09:20 PM
...what i've got is whatever you want ;)

All i want in return is for you to show me how you did some of the things for MotF.. coding stuff, you know.

I not mind showing how. I just don't give out source code. :) Just come in the #motf channel on gamesnet.net whenever you wanna deal.

you know this mod called SFX2? that mod brought out the movie fealing to the effects, the lightsabers were awsome and even the laser fire looked realy cool! you should take a look at that, you may want to see if you can get hold of the stuff.

Dude do you know where I can get this SFX2?


Never mind I found it
