It's probably going to be a while. The saber code is going to have to be gutted to get this the way we want it. Don't worry, it'll be worth the wait.
The collision improvement is basically done except for more testing and some internal code fixes. My blade model needs some improvement and I still can't get the damn bolts to attach the way I want them to. I can hack it (as it is now) but I'm not happy with it yet.
The biggie now is figuring out how I want to change the saber system.
In the meanwhile, I suggest you try the out MotF R2 that was release this weekend. It's not on the file servers yet but it can be found at http://personal.palouse.net/razorace/MotFR2.zip
