Thumbs up Fix the sabers Please


This is what Light sabers look like in Jedi outcast (and based on those screens this also what
they currently look like in Jedi Academy...)


And this is what they should be !!!

------------------------------------------------------------------------

And if someone thinks that it is not soo easy or something stupid like that then check this
screenshot which shows what I can do... I am sure that those guys who are working with
JA can do better that this...! (or at least i hope so..)

Don't know ... look at screen 6 at the official site ... That one looks a bit thikker. But it might be like that because it's a double edged saber.

If it's the same, then I vote: Change it !

Thumbs up

Well, I think the main problem is the triangular smudge. It's shape should be bent at the end, taking into account all saber positions between two animation frames. It looks particulary odd when you use force speed or timescale. Just look at the AotC photo. Hope you know what I mean .

AJL's saber looks better, but on the other hand, the white core seems too vivid. IMO the transition between the core and the glow should be slightly more blurry.

I like the ones available in the screenies.

The JKII blades look a little too transparent in places. Instead of the full flow of the blade.

Each character should have its own combat animations. Not as in JK2. A Jedi does not move like a Stormtrooper.

Well, that will be to time-consuming, but one could make at least fundamental differences between the model categories.

I hope you could understand waht I wanted to say

I use Perfect Sabers 2.0, it's ok I just didn't like the blue color, it was ANH blue, but I want ESB blue!!

Ohw and as seen on the screen in this thread; the saber is way too thick!! Plz make it a bit slimmer, then they're perfect

Agreed. But they look great anyway . Now you may send this mod to Raven for those sabers look better then those on JA screens shown so far . And by the way... can I get one?

it's ALJ's SFX2 mod, get it in the showcase forum. I really don't care too much about the sabers-i'm happy with the jk2 ones but the SFX ones are nice, too.

Now THERE is a feature for the SP character creation - select saber width!

Did cause a lot of verbal rucking, and patch after patch.

Probably a good idea to ensure smiles all round.
