New Sword

Post by Frik » 02 Aug 2017, 13:22

Greetings,

Wondering what y'all think of this sword? I plan on it being a reward for my next mod, which will be a quest mod. The base nif (before tweaking) came from UIX assets. It's been fully retextured /w a little glow (emisive color) added.

Suggestions/Critiques?

Thanks!

That blade looks a bit too colourful to me. So much, that it looks more like a paint rather then a blade made from weird metal.

Maybe try to remove the very dark blue colour, so its mostly combination of just black and red...

Thank you for your feedback.

I had initially textured the blade using black. I also tried a glowing red blade, as well, I thought about having the blade solid black with some glowing Deadric lettering, but that has been done so many times before I was going for something a bit different.

I've modified the blade to remove the blue and replace with pure black. It looks pretty good without the blue. How do you think this one turned out?

I think it looks better, in a cool way. :)

I agree. Comparing them side by side, the all black blade is better.

I placed the sword into the game. It looks pretty cool and works well. I've enchanted with paralyze, poison & soul trap, so it should be a handy item for the intrepid adventurer. 8-)

I'd really like to add some simple particle effects, if I can just figure out how to do it. ;)

Thanks again!
