    WIP: Hilt Pack

    thanks ese ^ that pic is of a noghri in case you're wondering. If you don't know what a noghri is, SHAME ON YOU! Go and read the Timothy Zahn trilogy set 5 years after ROTJ. Ok, so I made another Star Wars RPG addition for my friends. This is a variant of the YT-1200, aptly named the YT-1350XT transport. My friend James had the design idea. It's a quick and dirty model just to get the look into the gamers' minds. i took the textures from Millenium Falcon toys, and I took the top dome from the Starship Enterprise (1 of them, I'm no trekkie)

    I'll submit it to other sites afta! For anyone interested in the history of the custom hilts, I drew a pic of my friend's Star Wars RPG character named.... Tim? (Monty Python Holy Grail reference). Anywho, he's a Bith padawan of the New Republic. He recently had his arm chopped off by a dark jedi. His hilt is the peacemaker hilt. Without further ad0 - I also made a comical version to make my friend laugh.

    This is the one thing I loath after releasing stuff. The nit picking. Let's just pretend the jedi activate the lightsaber and then rotate in their hand for grip purposes. Or we could pretend they use the force to activate their lightsabers since they are so familiar with their hilt. I've seen pictures of mace holding his hilt in both directions, so let's not nit pick please. As far as the thickness of the double-bladed hilts, it looks like the Maul hilt is a bit thick. Oops.

    Eh, not sure what you mean by upside-down, since the saber looks right in that pic. As for your other issue, the hilt pack isn't compatible with any other SP hilt pack. I could release a MP version only pack if anyone's interested. Eets told me that lucasfiles was the only place people get files nowadays, but if jk3files and that other place are still up, I'll submit there as well.

    Thanks Prime. The hilt pack is submitted to http://www.lucasfiles.com, and I updated the screenshot above with a better render. Enjoy!

    Alas, I am alive. I sincerely apologize for the long delay, but there is a good reason. I got really sick over the hollidays, and my eyes started displaying afterimages almost immediately (most noticeable while reading or looking at monitors). I saw a couple of eye doctors, and the problem has lessened a bit, but it may not go away. Needless to say, modelling and skinning have become a bit more challenging with this new problem. I wanted to add a few more hilts, but I will release the hilt pack as is (see below). I will release two versions--A MP version and a SP version. Thanks for all the interest in this project. I will submit to Lucasfiles.com within the next few days.

    I feel better! I was sick for over 4 weeks--that sux0red greatly. That was a particularly nasty strain of cold or flu--how can you tell the difference? Anyways, I'll be in San Diego for Christmas. When I get back, I'll finish up this hilt pack and my Alaris model. Thanks for your patience! And Merry Christmas to everyone!

    Actually no, sorry I've been sick as a dog these past two weeks. I'm still sick. As soon as I'm feeling well again, I'll add a couple more hilts and release. Patience soon you will be with hilts.

    WIP: Hilt Pack

    To answer all these questions--I'm pretty much done making movie hilts, and I'll add a few more of my own custom designs before I release the pack. http://www.thelightsaber.com is a great source for saber hilt pics, and histories, but I don't plan on making any of those that weren't featured by the main Jedi. I may or may not make a Luke Ep V hilt and a Vader Ep VI hilt. If I can get a good picture of Sidious' lightsaber, I'll probably add that one as well. If you have a custom design you'd like me to model / skin for you, I just don't have the time to fit them in my already long "to do" list; however, if you're desperate, I do need extra cash for Christmas--pm me and we can work something out.

    I'll render the lightsabers into one shot when I am done. Here's the latest.

    good question seks. They will be added to the hilts selector screen in addition to the existing pathetic hilts.

    Right now I'm troubleshooting a problem where one of the two sabers (the right hand saber) float around in the dual saber special move. Any ideas?

    WIP: Hilt Pack

    Ok, Friday and Saturday I made "The Peacemaker" hilt. Originally I made a 2D photoshop drawing of this hilt for my buddy almost a year ago for his Star Wars RPG Bith Jedi Apprentice character (Bith is the race of musicians in Mos Eisley's Cantina). Anywho, the hilt is actually based on the hilt of an actual ninja sword that sells for just over $100 retail, so neither I nor my friend can take credit for the originality of the design. Nonetheless, I think it's a sweet design and makes for an awesome lightsaber hilt.

    All the hilts I've posted are in game as shown and have their own .sab file---so they will be in both Single Player and Multi-Player. The only exception is the Maul hilt. Apparently, only the double-bladed hilts are limited by 1000 polygons, so I had to remodel almost the entire hilt. Below is a screenshot of the Maul hilt at 990 polies. The Obi-Wan hilt is the only hilt that goes over 1000 polygons. All the rest are just under if I remember correctly.

    Milkshape 3d. Obi-Wan, Qui-Gon, and Windu were rendered in 3ds Max, and Maul was just the milkshape3d 3d viewport. I'm working on a tutorial. I have the modeling aspect done. I just have to get the "getting it in game" part done.
