Yes, I was using the wrong shader, thanks!
(For those of you finding this post later, the correct shader was “Unlit Generic”)
It started with me making a crossguard mod for Kylo Ren (I did succeed in this but the crossguard just comes out of the side of the standard hilt. I don’t have a 3D model for Kylo’s saber.)
Anyway, then I noticed the lightsaber materials don’t have a gradient-like blur.
I saw that the Star Wars Weapons did have the gradient effect to make the glow look better.
I experimented with using their materials for a lightsaber and saw it looked better.
I then created my own and imported them into your addon.
I had to sacrifice the trail, but for me I prefer the nice glow and missing trail over the other glow and having trail.
Don’t worry, I won’t reupload. This is just for fun and for use among friends of mine.
Although, could you take my crossguard code and put it in your addon?
I know there isn’t the correct hilt, but I think tons of people would settle for it just coming out the side of Darth Vader’s hilt.
I added a checkbox in the tool called Crossguard.
You can add it to any lightsaber.
A picture is worth a thousand words:
Yeah, I know, I need to fix the overlapping bit on the crossguard.
Crossguard mod without my new materials.
