About This File
This mod replaces all lightsaber vanilla icons [Heart of the Guardian and Mantle of the Force included as optional] with the new version.
# Background #
When I switch around the lightsabers I had noticed that the blue lightsaber icons wasn't blue enough. It was more purple than blue for my eyes, so I decided to make it blue, similar to the blade's color. The blue color of the icons were inspired by JCarter426's "JC's Lightsaber Visual Effects". In the end not only the color that was changed, but the style of the glowy part too. Their resolution also doubled from 64x64 to 128x128 with extra crispness. The rest of the icons get the same treatment for consistency.
# About this Mod #
Inside this mod are 18 new lightsaber icons in TPC format - which consists of:
- 5 lightsaber icons
- 1 Darth Malak's lightsaber icon [this one had different style than the rest]
- 5 short-lightsaber icons
- 5 double-lightsaber icons
- Heart of the Guardian's and Mantle of the Force's [in vanilla colour scheme] icon
# Final Remarks #
Now that HotG and MotF has been included the next update should be changing all lightsaber's texture to something that is more hi-poly - we'll see. 🤞
There's always room for improvements - critiques, comments, suggestions, questions and feedbacks for the next update are much appreciated - PM, write them on my feed or leave any on the mod's page as you please. And thank you! for downloading, and playing this mod.
Hope you enjoy the mod as much as I do!
