Republic Commando lightsaber


Recommended Posts

In 'Republic Commando', a lightsaber can be found in one level. I think nobody has ever done that one before.

It's the only good image I could find that shows the lightsaber completely.

Also, before you mention it: This isn't supposed to be Luke's lightsaber. It looks similar, but some details make the difference very clear.

 

EDIT: Just went through the assets myself to make a proper screenshot of it. This is the best image I could do.

Could this lightsaber be something for you, @Doughnuts?

Interesting, I don't think I ever knew about this. Can you please send me the model file? I should be able to rig this to work in game and add some improvements to the textures and model.

EDIT: It may actually be as simple as remodelling and reskinning Luke's saber.

I don't know how to extract models from that game. That's why I had to do a screenshot of it.

If you have Republic Commando, just use editor included with the game (or any compatible tool). The model is located in assault_carl.usx and is named ras_lightsaberAA.

Also, I'm not looking for a ported model to be used in Jedi Academy. This topic was all about collecting references, just in case somebody wants to do that lightsaber from scratch. I was more interested in a higher quality version. A remake to be precise.

If you manage to get better references than I provided, you can add them in this topic.

Yep, just took a look at this myself. It's not worth converting to JA even if that weren't a taboo thing. It's 200 triangles, with a 128x128 texture. But it's a cool design, so I second Lancelot's request for a new JA-worthy model.

Not done yet, but to give you an idea.

 

Well, that looks a hundred times better than the one I was working on 😄
Nice work mate.

Textures are obviously still a WIP.
