Crossguard Lightsabers


By Sithspecter

 


Description:

 

You've probably seen The Force Awakens at this point, and Kylo Ren's unique lightsaber as well. The saber features crossguard blades that serve a defensive purpose as well as venting extra heat. Now, you can play through Knights of the Old Republic wielding crossguard lightsabers as your own! This mod adds crossguard lightsabers complete with animations, plus Kylo Ren's lightsaber, to Knights of the Old Republic.

 

Each of the regular crossguard lightsabers is completely upgradeable. Kylo Ren's lightsaber is not upgradeable, but features animated blade textures to give it the unstable plasma look as seen the The Force Awakens.

 

Use:

 

Due to the unique way that Knights of the Old Republic handles lightsabers, to make the lightsabers upgradeable, this mod adds an emitter item which can be bonded with any of the default lightsaber color crystals in the game. Once you have an emitter and a lightsaber color crystal, talk to T3 who can bond them together to give you the new crystal bonded to the emitter. Simply install the new bonded crystal in a single-bladed regular lightsaber, and you now have a Crossguard Lightsaber! The bonded crystals can also be used in double-bladed or short lightsabers, however, they will still be the default double-bladed and short bladed lightsabers. If you want to remove a crystal from an emitter, talk to T3 once more and he will separate the two item.

 

You can get crossguard lightsabers in the following locations:

 

Dantooine: Blue crossguard lightsaber on Nemo's body
Kashyyyk: Jolee now comes equipped with a violet crossguard lightsaber
Korriban: Sith lightsaber located in Naga Sadow's tomb has been changed to Kylo Ren's lightsaber, emitter in Marka Ragnos's tomb
Tatooine: Emitter in Kraayt Dragon cave
Unknown World: Emitter on The One's body
Yavin Station: Suvam Tam will sell you 2 emitters (1 in each of his 2nd and 3rd inventory iterations, available after Leviathan)

 

Cheats:

 

g_i_crossguard - Emitter which can be bonded with any color crystal in the default game

 

g_w_lghtsbr09 - Blue crossguard lightsaber (upgradeable)
g_w_lghtsbr10 - Red crossguard lightsaber (upgradeable)
g_w_lghtsbr11 - Green crossguard lightsaber (upgradeable)
g_w_lghtsbr12 - Yellow crossguard lightsaber (upgradeable)
g_w_lghtsbr13 - Violet crossguard lightsaber (upgradeable)
g1_w_lghtsbr03 - Heart of the Guardian crossguard lightsaber (upgradeable)
g1_w_lghtsbr04 - Mantle of the Force crossguard lightsaber (upgradeable)

 

g_w_kylosaber - Kylo Ren's lightsaber

 

Installation:

 

1. Copy all the files in the Override folder of this .zip into your Knights of the Old Republic Override Folder
2. Profit

 

INCOMPATIBILITY:

 

DUE TO THE UNIQUE WAY THAT THIS MOD IS SET UP, IT IS LIKELY INCOMPATIBLE WITH MODS THAT HAVE A UPCRYSTALS.2DA OR MODIFY UPCRYSTALS.2DA. THIS MEANS THAT MOST LIGHTSABER MODS WILL BE INCOMPATIBLE. IF YOU USE THIS MOD AND OTHER LIGHTSABER MODS AND HAVE PROBLEMS, UNINSTALL BOTH MODS AND REINSTALL THIS MOD.

 

Bugs:

 

Due to limitations with current KotOR modding tools, there are a few very minor issues with this mod. The largest issue is that when you enter any module, the crossguard lightsabers will be extended and will not retract after any period of time. If you hit the "flourish" key or unequip and re-equip the crossguard lightsabers, the saber will retract normally until you enter another module. I cannot fix this bug, it is caused by incomplete code in the tools that we have and I do not have the expertise to edit the tool.

Thanks to Fair Strides for helping me troubleshoot the animation issues I was having, essentially writing all the required scripts for me, and for letting me make this mod in spite of my policy of only working on Sleheyron.

 

Credit goes to Kexikus for the inspiration from your screenshots. They look fantastic so I modeled the screenshots for this mod after your High Definition Skyboxes mod.

 

Credit goes to Kainzorus Prime for the Prequel Robe Replacement mod seen in the screenshots.

It's designed to prevent this IIRC. They've been around in the EU. Surprise, surprise no-one bothered modding one into kotor until it appeared in a film...

Where'd you find that out?

 

Also the reason for the crossguard/flames/whatever you want to call them is because the crystal in his saber is cracked, requiring the guards to vent extra energy, as seen in the visual dictionary here.

Love it! According to the TFA visual dictionary, this design of lightsaber originated during the time of the Mandalorian Wars, so this makes sense.

great mod, but, kylo ren's lightsaber need fix. because the light of his sword tied to the original red lightsaber. his sword need an independent, separate light. since the light from the original sword game hides part of the animation.

i took w_lsabrered01.tga and did red lightsaber without lights. kylo ren's lightsaber looks properly, but... all red lightsabers without lights in the game :D so, just make lightsaber crystal without lights and associated with him kylo ren's lightsaber. If i knew how make it, i would do it

Old comment, but I have to say it, I'm an expert on the EU, and I have no idea what you mean when you say these have been around in the EU before. They haven't. This here is the closest thing that existed in the EU, and it literally only appears in a couple of panels in a Republic comic issue: http://i.imgur.com/RZXXJkV.jpg

 

The crossguard lightsaber Kylo Ren has, and the ones pictured above were not in the EU, they are totally original creations.

crashes when you try to equip it even with it being the only mod installed

I've not encountered or heard of such an issue before. Try removing and reinstalling the mod. If that still doesn't work, then is it possible you might have remnants of earlier mods installed which could cause a problem?
