Lightbulb Question about Bao-Dur's Repulser Arm?

Hey, I just got an idea about boa-dur's repulser arm. There is no tga or special settings in 2da's for it so where would you be able to change the color of it? I think I may have found that answer (this might have been though of already but it's worth a shot), could it work like a lightsaber? Maybe you could change it's color by hex editing it, I am not sure where to start or how to do it but I think it could most likely be done like that. So I just thought I would bring that up and see if anybody has an idea about it.

Well I looked through all of the animations in the animations.2da and I looked as throughly as I could through everything else, so that is about the best answer for it as I can come up with. Also where the repulser feild is supposed to be on the model in gmax there was a dummy just like a lightsaber.

I think somebody said that the reason that Bao-Dur cannot use robes, because if the arm animation were there aswel, the robe couldn't flow (i.e. it'd be like revan's cape). Again, don't hold me to that XD

The energy beam of Bao-Dur's arm is created with a particle emitter in his model (which MdlOps wasn't capable of exporting or importing last time I checked).

I believe fx_baodur.tpc contains the texture for the energy particles of his arm, while P_BaoDur_Arm.tpc has the texture for the "lens" thing on the arm itself the beam seems to come from. If you change those two textures you can change the color of the beam.

I think I'll give that a try right now, I'd love to outfit my darkside Bao-Dur with a red arm. If I get it to work I'll update my Bao-Dur's Badass Outfit mod.

Just wondering, but is a black repulser arm possible? Just thought it would be cool to look at.

No actually I tried that and it did not work. If you want to try it though you have my permission as that mod is an open mod for anybody to use!

Cool. I don't normally care much for reskins, but the red arm looks great.

Thank you. By the way, Sithrevan, I dont know if yours does this too but I noticed on mine it had an interesting side effect. In the picture above from my previous post you can see that it glows pretty much like a red saber however when the arm is in front of his dark clothes it takes on a more fiery look that I hadn't noticed before:



Personally I think it looks pretty cool. I wonder if this is an accident I stumbled upon while messing around with the color or just something the repulser glow effect does?

Yes I had the same thing happen. I think it makes the arm look pretty cool too, also in green or dark blue that effect looks really cool!

I'll see if I can't try to play with this. By using a dark purple color in a light halo of color surrounded by black I might be able to give it a blacklight effect. Give me a little bit as I'm still restoring my PC to active duty.

So I have been messing around with this for awhile and cant seem to figure this out.
Would it be possible to modify some files and make it so Bao-Dur's arm changes colors upon alignment shift?
If so how could I go about doing this as there are no 2da's that mention his arm.
