So I am finally making a thread to see what the people who actually use SLM or my other mods would like to see be implemented in it. I already have a long list of things I'd like to accomplish, some are harder for me to do and some are not. But again if you have a suggestion or personal preference let me know here and I will see about going forward with it.

Want to do list:

  • Removing the rancor from Khoonda plains and placing that saber somewhere else.
  • Remaking all saber blade textures to look more like the movies and shows (Kenobi, Mandalorian)
  • Possibly switching models for pc hilt and/or red default hilts.
  • Doing compares for all party saber making dialogs instead of hard replaces.
  • Remove the Acheron saber quest and all associated files (getting rid of it). 
  • Removing all .mod files from the installation that are hard replaces  and putting those files in tslpatchdata to be inserted into the exisiting .mod files.
  • Removing the zakkeg boss from Dxun pt.1 and replacing that saber since Acheron wont exist anymore.

 

 

Saber blades

Here is what we have...

...but this is what I want

If anyone had suggestions on how to achieve this it would be most welcome.

Wow. Holy....

Welp, installing SLM is going to take awhile now....BUT. It will be much more compatible with other random mods.

I've started to do the comparing of dialog files in the patcher, and the gff section alone is ridiculously long.

I have been using SLM since v2.0, and honestly, it's completely transformed my gameplay experience. Obtaining and creating lightsabers is actually fun now. But if there is anything I would suggest for any future releases, it's the inclusion of schematic short lightsabers. Maybe make the viridian blades a little bit darker too?

Hey thanks for that. 

Hmmmm, schematics for short saber you say?  

ok, what about making a short verion of Kavar's offhand?

And yes, blade textures are always a work in progress so with viridian I have the right hue but it is a little bright.

Kavar's offhand, and maybe Freedon Nadd's saber too, since it's established in Legends he wielded a shoto.

uuuugh...yeah. i wanted to keep that (nadds) a long saber and make it an unstable red/orange blade. But I know it'd be a crime to go against canon. But since i was removing that Acheron saber I wanted another unstable blade saber. 

I dunno

May as well stick with Canon. Could always release an unstable saber separately.

Guess so. 

What am I going to take out to facilitate a schematic short saber or two?

Alderaanian Battle? (not that cool of a hilt)

Consulars? (i like that hilt) 🙁

Oh that looks cool.

 

In terms of replacing Acheron, you could possibly use that saber part quest idea for the lightsaber of somebody like Nomi Sunrider or Ulic Qel-Droma.

Ok so can anyone tell me how to use batch files with MdlEdit? 

Crazy 34 has these generate_dblsbr.bat files in the resource folder and all i've figured out how to do is generate empty .ascii files.

Run MDLedit, switch to the game for which you want to compile, go to FileBatchConvert to Binary, select all the ASCII model files, and it will generate an MDL & MDX file for each.

Make sure that w_dblsbr_001.mdl.ascii is in the same folder as the batch file. It uses those to generate the other files. Then compile them as JC said above.

Possible new icon backgrounds?

pbkgrnd.jpg.a2d59ba71ef1e01f193e2c855c1257f3.jpg

Got a lot done today. Now using 3 models from my old TOR Series saber mod. 

Handmaiden got a new one, and Alderaanian and Acheron are gone. Finito!

Replaced by said TOR models....

I like the icon backgrounds you currently use. Maybe you could even release those as a modders resource for people who want to make their own saber hilts?

Oookay think I’m diggin' these new icons, so I’m gonna go ahead with just the SLM sabers for them. Defaults will still have the outer glowed spheres. Will post a few up after work.

 

Here are the new additions and then also what these new icons might look like...

I am about to reskin the bottom padawans saber in the next few hours, then keep going with saber icons since there's 13 schematic sabers, the reward sabers, then all the master/villan sabers too.

Frankly, I second the opinion that the previous icon style looked better.

Alright well, I'll use the old icons for public release because frankly I wanted something new to look at. Not to mention some of the colors varied too much (purple, bronze) so I committed to it.

Actually I've only changed about a quarter of them so far, but yeah I can keep the old ones or try to come up with something else.

It's your call at the end of the day, man. I'd honestly be happy with whatever option you go with. It'll take some growing on me to like the new icons though haha.

how 'bout something simple? Like...

iw_lghtsbr_016.jpg.a45b778e8d4305c9a32de49a95d85ddf.jpg

....where the inner glow would denote the color of the blade?

Personally, I like that design! For me, it would be that or the classic old icons.

I could see that. Also gives Nihilus' lightsaber a completely unique icon, as opposed to the standard red.

Oh yeah, didn't think about that. Since Nihilus' is black core you would want it to be black/red. So if I did all colors like this, Nihilus' saber wouldn't stand out.

I have an idea for that already....Sion's too.

Need a good pic of Nihilus' mask
