Taking advantage of the interactive style capabilities I've designed the new "Kyber Select" styles to work like a Kyber Crystal selection in the Fallen Order or Jedi Academy video games or the Galaxy's Edge saber building experience.
The "Kyber Select" styles will let you select your Kyber Crystal color before you first ignite the saber and lock that choice in for the duration of use. This is not Color Changing or Color Editing, this is an Interactive "state" before your first ignition where you are able to select the Crystal color from your pre-selected options.
Once the blade is ignited that crystal color is locked in until you reboot the saber or change presets. The concept behind these is to give you a single preset that can be one of up to 6 colors and you can change that crystal each time you use the saber without changing presets, colors or editing. The selection is done by rotating the hilt before your first ignition of that preset.
There are a few options for selection:
#1 - Emitter Flare Selection - creates a temporary colored flare at your emitter before igniting to allow you to select the color Once you select and ignite your blade the color is locked in and the Emitter Flare is removed.
#2 - Hidden Selection - no visible selection but uses rotation to go through colors prior to ignition if you want to make it seem like the crystal is choosing based on your connection to the Force or it can be paired with a "Kyber Select" Off Effect for a Crystal Chamber or Accent LED.
You can also use the Hidden Selection to have a little fun with friends and family and hand them the saber and tell them "it will choose it's color based on their connection to the Force" like a padawan first building their saber or as seen in the Visions Episode "The Ninth Jedi". Since there is no identification of the selected color depending how they hold the saber at ignition it will be a different color. To reset the color just change presets or cut power and reboot.
Kyber Select will be coming to my Style Library very soon, so keep an eye out.
More to come...
