[TSL] "Heart of the Force" Sabers

Well, this was quite sooner than I expected! I don't think its been an hour since I posted screenshots for public opinion in the Holowan forum. Shortly after that post, RedHawke sent me his inspection report.
<edit> Now the Heart of the Force Sabers
are ready for download at LucasFiles. For some reason, the screenshots posted in reverse order, so the first few you see will be all about the Spirit and Spectre Robes that this mod was made as a companion for. Tell me what you think...

EDIT: As requested by RedHawke, this is a much more detailed description of the mod......

As a taste of what is here, this is a "Readers' Digest" version of my README.txt.

Short explanation of specific Heart of the Force Sabers:
The "Heart of the Force" sabers have extended length blades (longer than regular, but shorter than Malak's) and come in 6 different color combinations. The hilts have an animated texture that makes the clear windows "pulse" with the energies contained within. Also included in this mod is a re-issue of my "Spirit of the Force" and "Spectre of the Force" robes since they are all found in the same place on Nar Shaddaa (Vogga's Treasure Room)

Bright Orange - inspired by the Heart of the Guardian color from K1, this saber has a totally yellow-orange core (no white) surrounded by a hot red-orange glow.

Blacklight - inspired by the black sabers that I have seen released for K1 (and maybe also for TSL). I thought the notion of a black saber was ridiculous, since light isn't black, so I created the closest color combination I could to resemble UV blacklight party lights. Unfortunately, there is no way to make things in its vicinity glow bright when it is ignited.

Sith Red - the blade color texture here belongs to RedHawke. It was borrowed from the RedHawke saber that came with the recruitable PC for K1 by the same name. I always liked its brighter red color.

Silver - nothing spectacular here. It is just one of the sabers because it is one of my favorite colors for them.

Degobah Green - a green blade with a very faint yellow core. It has the same stats as the Jedi Master Prestige Class Saber produced by Maverick187 & RedHawke, but the blade is distinctly different.

Weaponmaster Blue-green - The same color and stats as the Jedi Weaponmaster Prestige Class Saber produced by Maverick187 & RedHawke. I included it because it is one of my all time favorite saber colors!

High praise and ultimate thanks are due to
oldflash for creating the model for the "Heart of the Force" Sabers. You are a saint!

Very special thanks to
RedHawke for everything he did to make this mod possible (there is simply too much to list).

Thanks to
Maverick187 for the inspiration from the Prestige Class Sabers.

And thanks to
Fred Tetra for creating the awesome and simple to use kotor editing tool.
