1. You don't ever have to use mod stations. Any modifiable gear can be modded anywhere. Just CTRL and Right click
2. Are you sure you're you are trying to mod an actual custom item that can be modified, and not some unmodiable item?
"Orange" (refering to the color of the text that the name of the item is written with, not item itself) can be modded (with few exception there are non-orange that can be modded too, but most can't)
well look at that I'm already a proven loser when it comes to gaming and what-not!
That is good to know about the modifying. Its only happening with this one lightsaber. And I recall it had a green outline so no its not orange but I modified it only a few weeks ago.
