Crossguard Lightsaber Features

29 October 2017 - 09:47 AM

I'm currently updating my Crossguard Lightsaber mod using the new KotORMax and MDLEdit, and I was curious if there were any more features that people wanted to see from Crossguard Lightsabers? As it stands currently with my new (but unreleased) updates, the mod works the same as before where you will find crossguard emitters on various worlds and upgrade your lightsabers with them. You can still upgrade the crossguard lightsabers too.

 

So far, the only additional option I am adding is the ability to choose whether you want a jagged, fiery set of crossguard lighsabers or a regular, stable set utilizing the normal blade textures. This will be a drop-in options, meaning there will be two folders in the mod archive, and you pick which one to install. You can swap by dropping the other set of files in the override, but cannot change in the game.

 

Are there any other features or anything people would like to see from this mod? Let me know, I can't promise anything but I will listen to requests.


High Quality Blades (an actual Work in Progress...no, seriously)

28 January 2017 - 07:47 PM

I swear it's a real WIP this time!

 

I'm getting around to working on High Quality Blades now. High Quality Blades will improve all of the low quality melee/lightsaber weapons in KotOR (and TSL too for all you knuckleheads). It will be a similar deal to High Quality Blasters.

 

This mod will include swords, vibroblades, gaffi sticks, stun batons, Gamorrean axes, quarterstaves, and lightsabers. Right now I plan to include two options for vibroblades; one that acts and functions the same as default vibroblades, and another where vibroblades are knives/daggers instead of swords (as per canon).

 

Progress so far:

Gamorrean axe will probably have a little more work done to the texture.

 

 


Forum Nickname Nominations

28 January 2017 - 05:53 PM

Back at Lucas Forums, most (if not all) major sub-forums had a nickname. Instead of a downloads sections, you had Taris Upper City Emporium. Want to have a friendly chat? Head to the Ahto City Cantina. It was a nice touch that made things feel a bit more homey.

 

Deadly Stream is hoping to implement similar nicknames, and we need your help! If you have an idea for a nickname for a sub-forum, simply nominate it here, and explain your reasoning behind it.

 

Please post only once! If you wish to nominate more, please go back and edit your original post.


3DS Max Tutorials

27 January 2017 - 05:58 PM

For everyone wanting to jump into the world of 3DSMax, I highly recommend that you check out the following channel: https://www.youtube....LMfTKWS56tOiQpw

 

Even if you've played around in 3DSMax before, I recommend starting at the very beginning of his tutorials and working your way through. I have learned so much that I never knew before. I can guarantee you that if you take 5-8 hours and just watch and learn, it will easily save you many more hours with various time saving techniques that are taught.

 

The channel is geared toward more modern gaming, but a huge number of concepts are directly applicable to KotOR modding.
