This modder's resource contains a detailed step-by-step instruction on how to use and modify the new lightsaber blade system introduced in my recent mods.
You can find this instruction in the file: manual.pdf.
The folder resources contains example textures, saber models in the ascii format and example batch file to generate color copies of a given saber.
I HOPE that in the future some talented texture artist will create better looking blade textures using these new blade models.
Lightsaber Hilts models and textures and icons are created by Kaidon Jorn and taken from his SLM 2.0 mod, which you can find here: https://deadlystream.com/files/file/551-schematic-lightsaber-mod-slm/
Thank you very much for the permission to use your models and hilts here. They are amazing and I enjoyed working with them.
The new layout for the lightsaber blades plane models are inspired by Sithspecter's animated Crossguard Lightsabers mod for KOTOR which can be found here: https://deadlystream.com/files/file/1314-crossguard-lightsabers/
Thank you very much for the permission to include your animated unstable blade texture and to modified them to include the new TSL colors.
The tip of the blade has a spike which comes from a deformation of the lightsaber planes. This is also present in the original model. I was not able to find a fix. (Sorry about that.)
The lightsaber hilts will clip through the blades. (Unfortunately, DarthParametric has said that it is not possible to fix this.)
You may use this mod as you see fit. Display it in screenshots, make it compatible with your mod. Use it to update your own mod or use it as a basis to start your own lightsaber mod. However, please give credit where it's due.
