Mandalorian Beskad

9 posts in this topic

I was wondering if anyone with custom weapon models and meshes would be willing to create a mod for both KotOR 1 and TSL that adds Mandalorian Beskads as a weapon. In Mandalorian culture, they had sabers made of mandalorian iron that they used as melee weapons. I would enjoy seeing such a weapon added to the games.

 

Below is the Wookiepedia article that gives an image of what a Beskad is:

These are great! I'm hesitant to ask this after everything you've done, but is there any chance you could make the Beskad blade a bit longer? They recently added a more dynamic model in SWTOR as part of 5.6 if you'd like an idea of the length I'm thinking of. If not, still amazing work. I'm very pleased and impressed. Thanks a million.

 

I would also like to add my appreciation of the addition of the Kal. It was a welcome addition to this mod that I had not considered.

I could probably do that, it was seeming a *bit* small to me, but I made it "exactly" 45cm as specified in the article. I found a screenshot of the SWTOR object you're talking about (I think), although I didn't find a shot of it with a human for scale. I was thinking I'd eventually add some clan-specific fancy versions, so maybe I'll do models closer to the SWTOR thing for those. I can see some other things I might adjust in the image also, so thanks for pointing it out. Not sure when I'll get around to an updated version, but when I do I'll make sure some of this stuff makes it in.

Wow, this model doesn't look as well as the Wookieepedia one. It would look nice for a Rakata, but not a Mandalorian. Perhaps it would be good just to lengthen the blade and just keep the design simple and deadly, just like a real Mandalorian (not an EA one) would wield? Of course, it is not my request, so if JDub disagrees, I would totally accept it.

 

Or, if you were thinking of adding clan-specific versions, maybe make some of them closer to SWTOR design and some of them closer to the SWTOR one?

I would be very interested in seeing more versions of beskad, certainly anything bigger as well, since kotor doesn't really do daggers that well, just short swords and sabers.

I actually like the new model more than the one on Wookiepedia. But I leave that to the mod author's decision. His mod, his call.
