I have the piezo sabres. Both hands. You could look at them if you want. B20, of course.

I have an idea, Darth Maul double bladed light saber, just make the Muzzle Offset maybe 5 - 10 pixels behind the Actual sprite, then make the life time doubled or even 2.5x the length it is now, should work as a good Double Sided, I'll try this tomorrow, too tired right now to...

I never liked piezo's and don't know why people think his is so good. It was hardly a lightsaber.

It was cool enough. Things don't need to be perfectly made in game as in real life. It's a simulation, so simulate as best you can :)

Otherwise it'd just be the laser bayonet.

That's what I thought, and why I made this.

I agree, they seem much more like a llightsabre and a lot less like a blue metal sword.
Seeing as the Sword Template is exactly the same but differently sprited, but this was because Piezo made the template didn't he?

Piezo was way before there were any templates. (in other words, the sword template is a resprite of his lightsabers)

Well, this is a somewhat simple lightsabre. However, designs like this are uncommon, if existent at all. It shoots particles from the tip, accompanied by a muzzleflash shaped like a lightsabre beam. It's pretty much a one hit kill on everything, but very short range. It's good for a side-arm.


It aint bad. The sprite for the handle is a little too large considering the hand of the actor, but CC is a game and little abstract of course.

Gameplay-wise the sabre thrusts back too much. It can be used to propel your flights higher and longer or slow falls. I'm not sure if this aspect works for or against the jedi-weapon idea but it does make swinging the sabre in air against walls exceptionally tedious. Which I suspect was not its intended function. The beam itself lacks presence and making it a pixel wider might give it more prominence. I liek that the color can be adjusted quite easily. Going Mace Windu on somebody's ass with a purple lightsaber is fun.
