Arcane Weapons Pack - File Description  

First of all I want to thank dyyor for re-submitting this file. The last one got eaten by our submission system and was never heard from again.

This is a perfect example of good design work. Not because its particularly elegant or eye-catching (which it is), but because of the authors approach to it. Straightforward really, he didn't see one, so he decided to make it himself!

Dyyor has presented us three simple weapons. A sword, a gauntlet (that thinks its a sword) and a shield. The first thing that knocked my socks off was the attention to detail on the shaders. The sword alone has five seperately rotating glyphs as well as the runes fading in and out on the blade itself. Likewise, the shield is composed of many rings rotating within rings within rings. The gauntlet is also shaped well and fits perfectly to hand of the player model.

For the animations, dyyor has replaced the kata for the gauntlets with the spin/slash attack. Also take note, that the shield will not go flying off into the air if you attempt the same kata, only the blade.

Do yourself a favor and make sure that you have dynamic glow (bloom) turned on when you use the shield, it adds a great deal of effect to it.

Overall, I like this a lot. Simple design with intriguing detail. It's enough to look good without being (too) gaudy. Dyyor has promised to expand on this pack in the future and I eagerly await what he has to show us. My only suggestion would be colors; if I pick a purple blade, can I have a shiny purple shield? Please pretty please?


New Textures: Yes
New Sounds: No

Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy

TITLE: Arcane Weapons Pack
E-MAIL: matt_hayes_gd @ yahoo . com

FILENAME: Arcane Pack.pk3
DATE RELEASED: August 22nd, 2009

CREDITS: First off, the archaic symbols used in this pack were not created by me, but by redheadstock found here:

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS: Simply place the arcane pack.pk3 in your base folder.

DESCRIPTION: I'm unsure what constitutes something as a pack, but in this set there are 3 weapons, one is a broadsword of sorts, another is a glove in a way that creates a saber blade and the other is a gauntlet that creates a large shield. I was on an archaic kick while waiting for a file to be submitted here. XD
Basically the circles are the product of boredom and epic shader testing/practice :D

Like my last set this is a trial run for these, I intend to make additions to the pack as well as changes to preexisting files.

The hilt names are g_arcanesw for the sword, g_arcanegl for the glove and g_arcanesh for the shield.

BUGS: None that I could find per-say, the shield of course goes through the user, but meh.

COMMENTS: Again I would like to thank redheadstock for the arcane circles and runes.
And thanks to friends who gave they're input on these weapons. ^^

My my my, this IS a realy nice weapon set. I'm sure I'll use it in my RP, whenever I'll make it. I love the Phantasy Star feel that come out of the shield and the blade!

Very nice stuff here, waiting for the next version of it wink

For some reason, when I click the link to download the file, it's saying Internet Explorer can't open the webpage. Is this a problem with my internet or is Filefront down?

Looks great by the way... I wish it'd let me download! frown
