Modder needs help!
Iím trying to make a custom lightsaber and get it in-game using USMís method (link the model to a certain crystal). Iím doing this by ďcloningĒ Dookuís lightsaber (copying the lightsaber files and giving the copies the number 255 instead of 116). Itís currently using the same model as Dookuís, but thatís gonna change once I finish the model Iím making.
Iím running into a couple of problems. When I spawn my lightsaber in-game, it has the same description/properties that I gave it, but itís using the crystal for Dookuís lightsaber (the Vkuen spire crystal). Also, I created a custom crystal for the new saber (again, by copying and renaming the Vkuen files), but the game doesnít seem to understand whatís going on. When I get the crystal using giveitem, the crystal does not register on the workbench. When I spawn the crystal on a corpse (the corpse in the Peragus morgue, after which Kreia speaks to you), the crystal DOES register on the workbench. However, when I go to put the crystal in a standard lightsaber, the saber becomes Dookuís instead of my own, and if I click assemble, my custom crystal turns into the Vkuen crystal.
Iíve renamed the resref, tag items, and model variations appropriately using kotor tool, but that didnít work. Iíve tried using the renamer/replacer option in Mdlops on the ďnewĒ saber model to rename the 116 to 255. That also didnít work.
Can anyone help me solve this without having to remove dookuís saber from the override folder?
