(Please note - This is a re-release and as such some of the readme content is old and outdated)
This is a HIGH detailed, mostly accurate rendition of the popular lightsaber design. I saw some other variations out there, and they were good. But I knew I could do better since I made a perfect, 1:1 scale digital replica (using lightwave 3D) of my Master Replicas Limited Edition RotS Obi Wan saber. So using that digital replica as a template, I proceded to model a version for Jedi Academy. And I can say that due to limitations , it isn't 100% accurate, but the differences are BARELY noticable. This is without a doubt (belive me, I looked around) The most detailed version of this saber ever released.
I have included 2 versions of this saber. One with traditional texture mapped "reflection" effect, which I personaly think looks much better. And one version that is reflection mapped for those who prefer that. I think they both look good, but I personaly like the consistant look of the original since the reflection map effect often looks odd and unnatural.
