About this mod

7 part questline for obtaining the components, ingredients and recipes for mastering the Lightsaber and obtaining force powers. Completely revamped Lightsaber crafting system bringing it more in sync with Skyrim making Lightsabers difficult to craft and obtain. Lightsabers are much more on par with how they would actually be in the world of Skyrim.

About the Mod and My Objective

Since I was a kid, I’ve loved Star Wars. I’ve enjoyed fun entertaining games from the franchise over the years, but no game has quite given me the experience of “feeling” like I’m a Jedi within the world of Star Wars. My dream has always been to play a game like Skyrim but Star Wars. 

I was inspired May 4th, 2020 by Pande4360 for making and releasing the Star Wars Conversion mod. After seeing his reddit post and following his release, I discovered the other amazing mods that have already been created for Skyrim, like Lord Haun’s Magicka Sabers and opsguy27's Unique Magicka Sabers as well as the Force Powers from the Use the Force or The Way of the Force mods. Even Evittalex's Invasion of Skyrim Star Wars mod had so many fun fantastic adventures! There were so many amazing fun tools at the player’s disposal in order to roleplay a Star Wars experience… all except one! The one thing that was lacking was a solid questline of some sort that would let you, the player, feel like you were actually adventuring, seeking and questing to build your lightsabers and become more and more powerful as a Jedi or Sith. 

This is my first major quest mod I’ve created for Skyrim. I consider this a very big WIP, so please be patient with me! I would like everyone to consistently give me input and let me know your thoughts and opinions. I welcome all feedback that is optimistic and looking to make this quest mod better and more fun for everyone.

If there are any other modders out there, specifically experienced with quests, that would like to help out, then please DM me! I’m open to having anyone join the team that wants to create an amazing nostalgic Star Wars experience we've all been wanting to play for years.

Features


    • Full 7 part quest line taking the player on an adventure to craft different tiers of lightsabers. 
    • The Main and Classic versions are merged with the Star Wars Conversion mod!  That means that there will be Star Wars Armors and Blasters in your leveled lists if you use either of these versions!  A patch is available under the optional files section that will remove both of these!
    • Blasters in game that fire blaster laser shots that can be deflected back at the target with a Lightsaber.
    • Force powers
      • WIP - Force powers can be obtained from The Way of the Force quest line. This will be expanded upon in the future. You can also go to the Force Temple located near Falkreath to obtain force powers.
    • Custom new more INTENSE Lightsaber sound effects!
    • Completely revamped highly in depth Lightsaber crafting system
        • NEW Lightsaber cores
        • Color crystals using precious gems in Skyrim
        • Intended to make lightsabers rare and difficult to craft or obtain. Because of this they are now stronger and more in sync with how a lightsaber should be in the world of Skyrim
        • At the end of the entire quest line the rest of the hilts will be available that are the most advanced lightsabers to craft.

Planned Future Features and Fixes

  • ALL NPC's with fully voiced dialogue.
  • The light side and dark side - WIP - I might branch down an alternate Sith quest line in the future depending on the interest with this quest mod. 
  • Temper recipes that will actually allow the player to break down and recycle old Lightsaber components
  • Create a separate Jedi and Sith robe quest line
  • Eventually tier the Lightsabers so that more advanced higher tier Lightsabers don't cost the same materials as lower ones.
  • All models will be recreated and resized to a realistic size that would make sense for them to fit into a Lightsaber
  • Working on full length reverse Lightsabers
  • Add more storm troopers/droids with blasters
  • I will continue working on The Way of the Force quest. As it stands now The Way of the Force quest only goes up to the point of finding the follower companion HK. That along with the force powers, is all that the previous designers of this mod finished and released.


Highly Recommended

I STRONGLY recommend playing this as a new play through. This quest was designed and is being expanded on the idea that the player starts it as a fresh start in the game. It will take you through many dungeons and areas that may have been altered by a previous play-through which could cause undesirable effects on the quest, water down and maybe even break the experience. While this quest should be started on a new play-through, you may not be able to play it all the way through without branching off and playing other quests and parts of the game and leveling up first.

I play Skyrim VR. I was inspired to do this mod because of my fantasy to feel like Jedi in VR. I'd recommend playing this in VR.

There are 3 versions available: Main, Classic and Lite.

MAIN:
This is the main version that I am actively working on and updating.

  • Path of the Lightsaber

CLASSIC:
This is the classic version that is completely standalone. You only need this ESP installed and it has no other required parent mods other than the ones listed below. I will not be actively working on this, so please do not ask for help or support with any bugs!
