BLADESTAFF WEAPON PACK

WEBSITE: N/A...working on it

INSTALLATION:

Stick 'bladestaff_JA.pk3' into your 'base' folder, which should be someplace like "C:Program FilesLucasArtsStar Wars Jedi Knight Jedi AcademyGameDataBase" if you are using JA, and something like "C:Program FilesLucasArtsStar Wars JK II Jedi OutcastGameDataBase". To uninstall, simply move the file elsewhere or delete it entirely (but why would you want to do that? :P)

DESCRIPTION:

This pack originally began when I was making a 3D model as a concept for a weapon for a movie. It was simple enough; the staff, the pads on the handle, and the blade (with some rather authentic-looking notches in it, I might add). Since I was already using 3DS Max, it was quite easy to make it fit within the 1000 vertice limit and port it to JK2 for the upcoming JK2 Jedi Customization Pack. That wasn't enough for me, though. So I reopened the model in Max, killed the blade, and made a new addition to the staff in replacement. And thus the Mace model was born...I gave it to the Reborn. And of course the villain of the game had to have some totally killer medieval-style weapon now too, so I killed the Mace head and put on a huge spikeball that only someone with inhuman strength could actually use.

Overall, I think they turned out pretty good...they're simple, but simplicity is a virtue, is it not? Anyway, since the JK2 pack is moving slowly and is still WIP, I thought I'd release this pack independently and make it JK3 compatible (since my last release, which was JK2 only, recieved numerous demands for a JA version). Don't worry, though, this pack will work fine in JK2 still, and a JK2-only version will be included in the Beta 1 Public Release of the JK2 Jedi Customization Pack.

BUGS:

None that I know of...this is a pretty sensitive file, though. It doesn't seem to take priority if you have any other lightsaber hilt/blade mod files in your 'base' folder, so make sure your base folder is clean before you use this!

Oh yeah, and the menu (JA ONLY) is a little bit weird when it comes to this mod. It shows the tags for the spikeball and mace models, yet it just shows them up as the regular bladestaff. Still, they should show up correctly in-game.

CONSOLE COMMANDS (JA ONLY):

(In case you don't know, bring up the console by holding down SHIFT and pressing ~. Close down the console the same way)

Helpusobi 1 - enable cheats

saber single_bladestaff single_bladestaff - dual wield the bladestaff

saber single_mace single_mace - dual wield the mace

saber single_spikeball single_spikeball - dual wield the spikeball

saber dual_bladestaff - use the bladestaff in a two-handed, two-sided combat form (make some good use out of that pointy thing at the end, right?).

You can, of course, single wield the weapons too (just leave off the repeated part) but I find that a tad bit boring...
