you can't model the beam glow, you have to do that in DB.

You CAN model it but the most part of the work is the texture and mapping on the object(first pic).

esplain more blazer

do you want the blade to glow? or do you want to model the trail?

Blade glowing is easi... make it a plain and make the actual blade as a texture.

the trail you'd need DarkMatter for but is also relatively easi to accomplish

Maybe for that trail you could adapt Van-B's trail code.

There is a snippet that comes with the "Dark Archive" CD for a glowing sword that swooshes around

I just wanted the glow on the sword, If I textured a plain and used always face camera, would other people see your blade too or would it only face your camera?

The first sword,which i thought was what I meant,isn't a plain it's a full mesh mapped specialy to fit the purpose.

I suppose it is as thick as an actual sword but has a texture of a glow surrounded by black...Set object does the trick from there.
