gif by @Legend50210 (click gif to go to his Twitter, he does cool vr choreography)

Swift, clean and smooth. Unsheathe it in a single motion and slice your opponent in half.

The Katana Saber, unable to retract on its own has a scabbard specifically designed to keep it contained when not in use.

(scabbard can be toggled off if you want it to work like a normal saber).

You can grab the scabbard independently, unsheathe, 2 hand it, drop them in the world etc.

Unsheathing is done via a physbone that you simply pull out on, the amount you need to pull to unsheathe can be controlled in the menu for ease of use.

Sheathing the katana is as simple as holding a thumbs up gesture, while touching the katana to the scabbard, they will lock together and you can click it right in with a satisfying sound effect.

You can also easily pass the blade to the other hand by either grabbing it two handed, and releasing with the other hand, or putting your hands close to eachother, then opening the hand with the katana. Passing to the other hand can be toggled off in the menu if you only want it to stay in one hand, and not accidentally pass it over.

Full interactive collision mechanics for both the Saber and the Bladed Katana.
Reacts to other people using either the same prefab or my other prefabs like Katana, Death Sickles , Photon Saber, Dual Photon Saber and Dragonscale Saber

Additionally reacts to stabbing other people as well using body contact senders.

Full color control on the Saber Katana, with darkblade variants that change look depending if you use flat blade or round blade.

All particle effects change color along with it, as well as it casting a light on to the world.

Both the Bladed Katana and Saber Katana comes with different particle toggles to enhance their visual flair

Saber Katana Particles (changes color depending on saber color):

  • Static
  • Ambient particles
  • Sparks
  • Environmental electricity
  • Swing effects with VRLabs Slash

Bladed Katana Particles:

  • Wind/smoke trail
  • Fire Blade
  • Blue Static
  • Environental blue electricity
  • Fire swing effects with VRLabs Slash

Both katanas can be springjointed using finger point, and fingergun.
Both hands can be used at the same time to swing it between your hands and pass it over.
Using fingergun makes it fly much further out as well.

You can even do it with both katanas at the same time (recommend you turn off hand swap in the menu so the katanas don't overlap on eachother)

Using VRLabs Slash you can enable Swing particles in the menu to create satisfying slash effects (with sounds).

Saber Katana (as seen in this gif below) creates color swing effects depending on the sabers current color, and the Bladed katana creates a fiery effect of flames whenever you swing it.

Custom Install Script for ease of installation and uninstallation

A custom install script coded by Cam makes installing both prefabs incredibly simple and easy. All you need beforehand is Avatar manager in the project (and poiyomi shader) and then you simply open the installer, put your avatar into it and pick the locations where the katana will appear in hand and when equipped.
Then click Install.

Comes with quick dropdrown for materials setup as well as an uninstall button.

Show off your coolness!


DEPENDENCIES:

VRChat Creator Companion (VCC)

You must use one of the newer VRC SDK's which can only be downloaded through VCC, otherwise you are more than likely to encounter issues.

Poyiomi Toon Shader

(recommended 8 or newer)

Avatar 3.0 Manager

(can be installed through VCC directly)

OPTIONAL:

VRCFury

Fury can be used as part of the install script, in case you want the parameters and layers etc, merged only on upload.


Toggling the Scabbard off makes the Hilts act able to extend and retract instead of sheathing and unsheathing. Entirely changing how you use the weapons.
