Alright, i Had the model skinned and everything. Then I import the the saber into the game and i am 337 verts, over the 1000 limit. So i am going to redo the saber. Though now that I know how uvw mapping works, it shoudn't take very long.
Who ever it was that wanted their obi-wan saber skinned, send it to me if you wish. Though make sure it is attached as a single unit.
