Possibly Mafia's first lightsaber that glows and all that stuff. Hooray!

I see Vincenzo went to extreme lengths just to provide the necessary weapons for Salieri's crew, and yet he somehow couldn't give Tommy the damn Thompson. Sticking out tongue

Congratulations, mod author! When the lightsaber is on screen (or I looking to a direction where a nearby lightsaber model located), my game starts lagging like on a potato computer, but when I put away the lightsaber (or I look away), the game becomes normal again! Oops! Please fix this interesting mod.

Yeah, AsaSK, this is the actual true. The intensive glow of this model causing the game to lag. Cautious Interesting idea, but the execution affects the game negatively (even on a good computer).

Hi Zsombor, thanks for your feedback! I wasn't aware of this issue as I tested the model in an empty test level, so thank you to you and Firefox for bringing it to my attention. Unfortunately, it's not a case of 'lazy'/'sloppy' work (as has been suggested elsewhere), but instead that my knowledge of scaling 4DS glows is very limited, so I had to fake one long glow effect.
I'm taking the download link down, and hopefully sometime I'll learn how to improve this! If I do, I'll let you know. Smile

Okay, AsaSK, take your time. Smile Maybe a glowless version as a temporary fix until you somehow improve the original model?
Tip: if you test your mod, always load in the full city (eg. Freeride Extreme) and test there as well. Wink

I can offer to use the long BBRD object with a glowing texture. This objects have autorotation.
Flat trees in the countryside are the example.
